Are you hoping that the honeymoon in Breaking Dawn is hotter than fade to black which made us fade to sad? Will Bill Condon take some creative liberties and push the PG-13 envelope? Will Robert Pattinson need a modesty patch? Okay. You might not being thinking the last one but truth be told lots of Robsessed girls are! Don't lie.
We know there have been tons of petitions to make Breaking Dawn rated 'R.' But in reality there are some very racy scenes in PG-13 movies. We brought up the sex scene in The Notebook to Stephenie Meyer during our interview. The Notebook is PG-13. We were floored that she has never seen the movie since we consider it an amazing love story.

And I don’t think that the Jacob perspective will be nearly as pronounced in the movie. Yeah, it made me a little bit sad. I think we’re going to get some good moments. But they feel like they have to keep it Bella and Edward-centric…..so. I mean, I can see that.
[Meghan?]: He’s got some good stuff though. (“He” meaning Jacob)
SM: Yeah, he does. He has some good moments. It’s alright guys. (Stephenie soothes the anxious group over Breaking Dawn worries!)
[someone else, not Stephenie, says something here about: In the first movie, when Edward’s…they were expecting to pull the venom out of her and then it just flashes…the scenes…it felt like…will be coming right back??]
SM: Yeah, that was a good way when Catherine (Catherine Hardwicke, director of...
