Twilight and Harry Potter star Robert Pattinson caused a massive stir among fangirls when he joked that he and co-star Kristen Stewart may already be married after their wedding scene in the upcoming Twilight saga film Breaking Dawn.
Breaking Dawn is the last installment in the vampire love drama, and covers the (spoiler alert) wedding of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Their eternity-ever-after, however, is hijacked by the improbable human-on-vampire pregnancy that occurs roughly ten minutes into the honeymoon, and the lovebirds must deal with the life-threatening horror of giving birth to and raising a vamp-human hybrid.
As you can imagine, there is an elaborate wedding scene in Breaking Dawn that has to occur before Bella and Edward can actually have sex. And it is during this scene, says Pattinson, that the actual in-real-life marrying could have theoretically taken place. Us Weekly quotes Pattinson:
“The wedding scene’s funny because we used a real priest. So technically we are already married because he did all the things you would do in a normal ceremony,” Pattinson, 25, joked during a press conference in Stockholm, Sweden Friday. “So we don’t have a civil union in law, but I guess in the church we are actually married.”
Pattinson also dished at the conference about filming the hotly-anticipated Twilight sex scenes with Stewart. He said:
“It was very charged, but a very tender and sentimental scene. It’s not a scene from the book, so everyone was nervous about doing it right,” he explained. “A ton of other people were nervous. And, Kristen and I were both worried about the shape of our bodies would look on camera. We felt vulnerable.”
But the messages in Twilight perceived by some as anti-sex were not lost on Pattinson. He also opined:
“I’ve never been able to relate to that fear of sex or sexuality. It’s funny that all three movies portray sex as something scary and then, when they have sex in the fourth movie, they have a child with really rather devastating consequences. I’m not sure what they are trying to say. . .never have sex with anyone ever?”
