The National Enquirer reports, “Robert Pattinson, about to shoot steamy ‘Breaking Dawn’ honeymoon scenes with real-life honey Kristen Stewart in Brazil, started shaking, panicking and actually tearing up just before cameras rolled for the ultra-violent sex session where he nearly crushes his new bride with his superhuman vampire strength and leaves her badly battered and bruised.”
According to the tab, Pattinson pleaded, “Can’t we use body doubles? Kristen is so slight… I can’t stand the thought of hurting her!”
The Enquirer says Pattinson ultimately “shot the crucial scene [after] she assured him she was okay,” but later “freaked” when Stewart showed him “bruises” that makeup artists painted on her body.
“For an instant, Rob thought the bruises were real,” claims the mag, adding that he “started stammering, ‘Oh no, what have I done?… Baby, I’m so sorry!”
Stewart, says the Enquirer, then began to laugh as Pattinson was on the verge of melting down.
First, the mag’s article is a tad insulting to Pattinson. His alleged asking for “body doubles” and fear of “hurting her” basically implies he couldn’t act out the scene – which, of course, he did quite ably.
More importantly, this NEVER happened.
Sources on the set say Pattinson knew exactly what was called for in the scene, and executed it perfectly.
It’s also absurd to think that Pattinson wouldn’t know that Stewart was going to have makeup applied in an effort to give the appearance of bruises after the sex scene.
An on-set source tells Gossip Cop that the Enquirer’s entire premise is “patently false,” and that it’s about as real as Stewart’s “bruises” were.
