Who knew it was possible for a vampire to be red in the face?
Robert Pattinson had a good laugh after the first still from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn was released Sunday, which features the actor in a tender embrace with real-life love Kristen Stewart.
"I love how they release that for the first one," the blushing Brit chuckled at the Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills. "Just give it all away, you know?"
So how would the 24-year-old actor describe the risque photo? "I think I'm sniffing," he jokes to MTV.
Pattinson — who filmed steamy sex scenes in 2010's Remember Me and the upcoming period drama Bel Ami — says that despite his experience, shooting the honeymoon scene with Stewart, 20, wasn't easy.
"It's always awkward, in a way, if you're doing it with anybody," Pattinson says. "It really depends on how it's staged and stuff. It's like doing Twister."
The film's director, Bill Condon, was equally as nervous about capturing the scene's raw emotion.
"You want to live up to people's expectations. People take [the movie and characters] personally," he told Entertainment Weekly. "When you are interpreting something, you have a certain vision of how it will be. Sometimes it is a liberal interpretation, but you hope you get to the essence of something."
