The first photo of "Breaking Dawn's" steamy scene between Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) has been unveiled, and it has fans swooning.
"Wow this picture is amazing... so natural and sensual... I can't wait to see [the] movie in November!!!!!" commented Amasai on "Twilight's" official Twitter page. Added missmolliekate1, "What i wouldn't give to be Kristen [Stewart]."
The photo also had an almost-fatal effect on a few Twi-hards. "Oh I get it... you're trying to kill us! THISISWAYTOOCUTEFORMYEYES!" MomsenStew said of the sexy shot. For PattinsonLadies, it was all about Edward's arm: "Rob's bicep! *DEAD*"
The reactions on Entertainment Weekly's site weren't quite so glowing. "She looks bored – like a woman who’s been married for thirty years and just wants her husband to get it over with quickly!!" wrote Seymour.
Added Heather P, "It looks too gentle. In the book she was covered in bruises the next morning. Oh, and the book faded to black too. You’d think headboard-breaking sex would be steamy. Nope. Very disappointing."
But director Bill Condon promises that fans won't be disappointed when part one of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" arrives in theaters on November 18.
“It’s one of the most anticipated scenes,” he says. “I spent a tremendous amount of time thinking about it. The anticipation is part of it and you want to play with what people expect and maybe subvert it a little and surprise them.”
As for Kristen Stewart's take on how Edward and Bella's passion should play out: “I think it should be like a balance," she says. "At some point it has to be real and it has to be adult because they’re not kids anymore, but a lot can be really sexy by being suggestive. It doesn’t have to be vulgar or explicit.”
