In a new interview with Parade.com, Robert Pattinson discusses Edward Cullen’s approach to sex and how he relates to it.
“Edward is old fashioned. Nowadays, everyone just goes around screwing everyone for no reason. I guess Edward doesn’t really want to sort of cheapen his relationship with Bella, even though she’s pushing him to go all the way,” Pattinson tells the site.
“He’s got this certain idea of how it should go with the love of his life. He wants to do it right and not just follow his base instincts. I guess I’m a bit old fashioned in that way as well.”
“Kissing felt a little bit more natural in Eclipse, even if there was plenty of it,” says the actor.
“In New Moon and Twilight it was always like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna kill you if I kiss you’ or something. It was always kind of odd. But, in this one, they both understand their situation a lot more, which makes it easier. It’s the first time Kristen and I have been able to just act like a normal couple."
