Robert Pattinson admits sex with Kristen Stewart is “pretty ridiculous”

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are real-life lovers who also play on-screen paramours in the Twilight Saga.

And now notoriously shy actor Rob has opened up about his sex-life with the 22-year-old actress.

But before his girlfriend gets too upset, it should be said that he was talking about the sex scenes that the pair had to film as star-crossed lovers Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

The British actor told Australian talk show hosts Kyle and Jackie O that trying to act out "the greatest vampire sex you've ever had" was "pretty ridiculous".

Fans of the bestselling vampire novels were excited to see Edward and Bella have their first sex scene in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.

But in the last and final instalment of the franchise, which is due out on 16th November, Kristen's character Bella is transformed into a super strong vampire.

This means that smouldering Edward can let loose and enjoy making love to his wife without worrying about breaking her bones (although he’ll surely end up breaking everything else in the room if the books are anything to go by).

It sounds exciting - but Robert has confessed that on-screen sex scenes are definitely not the most fun part of shooting and in fact are downright awkward.

The actor explained: "The sex scene in this one is pretty ridiculous.

"It's just because you're kind of shooting stuff to be PG-13... It's just trying to think of inventive ways to make something sexy.

"It can't just be a normal sex scene. It's supposed to be about, like, the greatest vampire sex you've ever had."

To make matters worse, director Bill Condon had the pair making faces of "ecstasy" to the camera in a series of close ups.

The Cosmopolis actor confessed: "We're doing it just to the camera, and the camera man is laughing as well.

“Guys' faces I don't think are really designed to do that."

Thanks for ruining the romance of the film, Rob!
