Twilight: Eclipse is the Gayest Movie Ever
...Or so Entertainment Weekly would have us believe! Heartthrobs Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner snuggle up in this cover shot (one of two editions of a special EW dedicated to the upcoming premiere of Twilight: Eclipse).
More evidence that the vibe between Lautner and Pattinson is undeniably sexually charged after the break including the tent scene they spent a day reshooting to make “more erotic” and a video clip of the actors discussing their enthusiastic endorsement of Jacob’s numerous shirtless scenes.
In an excerpt from EW’s Q&A with stars Lautner, Pattinson and Kristen Stweart, the male leads discuss working on a scene from the novel that’s set “in the tent during the snowstorm. Jacob [Lautner] warms up Bella [Stewart] with his body because Edward [Pattinson] is cold-blooded and can’t do it himself.” Lautner reveals it took, “two days originally to film it, and then a full day of reshoots,” because, according to Pattinson, “[The director] wanted it to be more erotic… Seriously.”
“It’s true,” Stewart adds, “in the book there’s a serious sexual tension. As I’m sleeping, Jacob is staring over my vulnerable body, and he’s naked in this f- - -ing sleeping bag because you heat up faster that way, and Jacob and Edward are leveling with each other.”
Many pivotal scenes in the newest installment of the Twilight Saga focus on the rivalry between Jacob and Edward coming to a head. “Some of those scenes were pretty hard for me,” Lautner admits. “I think we ruined a couple of takes in front of the house and in the tent. It’s just, I don’t know, I have a hard time looking at him… He and I were thisclose to each other — we are literally, like, an inch away — and we’re screaming at each other.”
“And,” Stewart interjects, “about to kiss…”
“A couple of moments it felt like that,” Lautner agrees.
“Every single time we had to do a threatening thing to each other — for one thing, you always have your shirt off, and so in the tent scene I literally grabbed your breast. And it’s very difficult to remain in the moment,” Pattinson said of shooting.
The trio of Twilight stars expanded on their fondness for Jacob’s penchant for being shirtless as often as possible on The Jimmy Kimmel Show in this clip.
Twilight: Eclipse is in theaters June 30th.
