"You just get lubed up and jump right into it!" he proclaimed to MTV News while backstage at San Diego Comic-Con shortly after making an appearance on a panel with his "Breaking Dawn" castmates and director Bill Condon. The group answered questions from Comic-Con attendees and treated them to footage from the upcoming flick, which is the second-to-last film adaptation in the epic saga.
Fan familiarity with Stephanie Meyer's "Twilight" novels means anticipation has been high for several elements of "Breaking Dawn," including a wedding, a birth and perhaps the most anticipated of all: the sex scenes. Smiling broadly, RPattz added: "You have to have some tantric breathing and stuff."
All joking aside, it was pretty clear once Pattinson continued talking that there was, in fact, a bit of planning put into the onscreen depiction of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan getting down to some romantic business. "Everyone always says it about sex scenes in movies — it's really awkward and blah, blah, blah — but it is!" he pointed out.
Ultimately, he likened it to a popular board game. "You're playing Twister," Pattinson deadpanned.
With "Twilight" mania still in full swing, it might be hard for moviegoers to imagine seeing the chemistry between Pattinson and Kristen Stewart re-created within the context of different characters in another story, but that doesn't mean Pattinson wouldn't be up for re-teaming with her in a non-"Twilight" film.
"I'd love to. Definitely," he told us without hesitation. "I don't know how audiences would respond to it or whatever, [but] I'd love to."
