In a steamy promotional still released on Sunday, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan are show getting intimate with eachother in upcoming film "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn."
Now Pattinson says that although the two look like they're having a good time in the photo, filming intimate scenes can be "awkward."
"It's always awkward, in a way, if you're doing it with anybody," Pattinson tells MTV about sex scenes. "It really depends on how it's staged and stuff. It's like doing Twister."
As for the photo, which can be seen below, Pattinson says, "I love how they release that for the first one. Just give it all away, you know?"The photo is a follow up to a previous image features the hand of Bella Swan, played by Kristen Stewart, on a bed clutching feathers, which hints to a sex scene involving her character and her vampire lover Edward Cullen, portrayed by Robert Pattinson.
In a scene from the books by Stephenie Meyer, the couple's lovemaking during their honeymoon becomes so frantic that they break the headboard on their bed and Cullen bites through a down pillow.
Stewart and Pattinson recently stripped down to a bikini and swimming trunks to film a scene for the movie, the final installment of the vampire romance saga, in Brazil.
Stewart showed off a slim figure in a bright bikini while Pattinson donned red swimming trunks. The two plan to film "Breaking Dawn" over the next eight months, shooting some scenes in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Stewart said in October that while she's "incredibly pregnant" in part of "Breaking Dawn" but had dieted for weeks to prepare for scenes in which Swan is not expecting.
"Breaking Dawn"'s first part is set to be released on November 18, 2011 and the second part is due to hit theaters on Nov. 16, 2012.
Stewart has also said she recently tried on several prosthetic bellies for "Breaking Dawn", which sees her marrying Cullen, turning into a vampire and giving birth to their child, Renesmee. The older version of the character is to be played by 9-year-old Mackenzie Foy.
