“Twilight” fans were amused but frustrated in 2009 when their favorite movie couple, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart , shared an appropriately angsty almost-kiss to accept their MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss. As such, the MTV favorites were no doubt hoping for something more satisfying from the are-they-or-aren’t-they couple when they accepted their second-straight Golden Popcorn for Best Kiss on Sunday night.
“I had the best ideas last night,” Pattinson said, admitting that he’d been brainstorming the night before the show. “And I was telling everyone, ‘Listen, just leave it to me, I’ve got it all under control.’ … I was telling everyone all these ideas. I gave them a whole selection and no one thought they were funny, so then we ended up doing something which didn’t work.”
When the big moment arrived, Stewart told the audience that their movie kisses are made possible and award-worthy only with the help of “smoke and mirrors.” They followed that proclamation not with a short and sweet smooch, but by awkwardly attempting to kiss, bumping noses and hands in weird places, getting close and pulling apart a couple of times.
“We probably shouldn’t do this, right?” Kristen said, but finally Pattinson grabbed her and spun her away from the crowd for a quick kiss that was mostly obscured by his body. It would have seemed like too much of a tease if it weren’t for Pattinson’s blushing smile as he dashed off the stage.
Naturally the moment left many fans scratching their heads, wondering whether the duo had planned their little skit in advance or not.
RPattz didn’t think their attempt at slapstick worked, but do you, Twilighters? Talk about it in the comments.
