'Breaking Dawn' director: More romance, less thrusting

"Twilight Saga" fans have been waiting to witness post-wedding action between the series' protagonists, Bella and Edward  (remember the feathers furor?), but director Bill Condon had to turn the heat down a notch in the latest installment.

Condon tells MTV that in order to ensure "Breaking Dawn - Part I" kept its PG-13 rating - and Summit Entertainment has promised that it would stay PG-13 - he had to ensure Robert Pattinson didn't get too over-the-top with the hip action while in bed with co-star Kristen Stewart.

"It's almost clinical the kind of strict guidelines [the MPAA] have about anything that appears to be - how do I put it delicately? - that appears to be, let's call it thrusting," Condon said.

So instead of a lot of "thrusting," Condon focused more on the romance. "In fact," he went on, "it was so much more about romance than it was about hot-and-heavy action, so it was a very simple adjustment to make."

"Breaking Dawn - Part I" bows November 18.

    The idea of Robert Pattinson "thrusting" anyone in bed makes me want to vomit- as do the promos showing Bella's spawn in the womb.

    Hot and heavy action is always a good thing. @earth, that's a good thing. Especially if he has a nice hard, chiseled body to soap and wash.
