Most of you probably haven’t seen Twilight: Eclipse yet, because it opens tomorrow and nobody invited you to a screening, and so you probably consoled yourself by purchasing a Twilight vibrator, but we want to make sure you don’t go in there with any of People‘s false headline pretenses. There was no kissing between Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson, MOSTLY BECAUSE WEREWOLVES AND VAMPIRES DON’T GET ALONG.
Luckily, People‘s magazine cousin Entertainment Weekly wasn’t afraid to go there in discussing “the tent scene”:
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: One scene fans have been dying to see takes place in the tent during the snowstorm. Jacob warms up Bella with his body because Edward is cold-blooded and can’t do it himself.
LAUTNER: The tent scene is probably my favorite, because it’s the first time Edward and Jacob are actually able to connect and understand each other.
EW: How many takes did you go through to get that scene?
LAUTNER: Two days originally to film it, and then a full day of reshoots.
PATTINSON: [The director] wanted it to be more erotic. Seriously.
STEWART: It’s true. 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.
EW: Taylor, you and Rob have some pretty serious confrontations in this movie.
LAUTNER: Some of those scenes were pretty hard for me. 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…
STEWART: Ha! “I have such a hard time looking at him”!
LAUTNER: [Laughs] I wasn’t finished. He and I were thisclose to each other — we are literally, like, an inch away — and we’re screaming at each other.
STEWART: And about to kiss…
LAUTNER: A couple of moments it felt like that.
