[movie id="369195"]“Twilight”[/movie] fans are lucky to see a few chaste, sexy kisses between leading man [movieperson id="365131"]Robert Pattinson[/movieperson] and his onscreen love [movieperson id="262629"]Kristen Stewart[/movieperson] during one of the saga’s films. But anyone going to see his more adult — and less supernatural — new film [movie id="430301"]“Remember Me”[/movie] should expect many more steamy moments.
The film, which opens March 12, is a drama focused on Pattinson’s character, Tyler, and the relationship he forms with co-star [movieperson id="310839"]Emilie de Ravin[/movieperson]‘s character, Ally. Needless to say, the film doesn’t shy away from its PG-13 rating, as there are a few intimate scenes between Tyler and Ally.
When MTV News got a chance to sit down and talk with the stars of the film, Pattinson was quick to answer that he was more nervous about filming the sex scenes than his co-star. De Ravin seemed a bit shocked by his answer, to which he responded with a laugh, “Yeah, you were, like, fine!”
And according to Pattinson, there was a bit of a wardrobe mishap when Pattinson and de Ravin were set to start filming one of their scenes. He was supposed to be wearing a “modesty patch” to cover his personal areas, but apparently the costume department didn’t have one available for either him or de Ravin. So they ended up having to take half a bra and finding a way for it to stay on his body.
“They had to, like, tape it and stretch it around into my ass crack. It was quite funny,” Pattinson said, barely managing to tell the story through his laughter. “It’s all very glamorous,” de Ravin added.
And director Allen Coulter apparently went out of his way to make the two comfortable with being faux-intimate with one another by playing a prank on them before one of the scenes.
“Allen gave us this whole kind of lecture about how to feel ‘safe,’ ” Pattinson explained. ” ‘We’ve just got a couple of things which, you know, you can use them or don’t use them, fine, if it just makes you feel better about it.’ And we walk into the bedroom, and laid out on the bed, the art department had got all these things like handcuffs and improvised sex toys made out of hair dryers and things, and every single thing from the costume department, like a top hat and little silk things.”
While those objects didn’t make it into the final cut of the film, Pattinson and de Ravin’s chemistry and comfort with one another did. But de Ravin did state that there wasn’t going to be a “Basic Instinct” NC-17 cut of the film coming out any time soon. What audiences see in the theaters is all there is.
“There’s no sodomizing, I don’t think,” she joked.
