Kristen Stewart Says Breaking Dawn Was Re-Cut to Avoid “R” Rating

Glamour Magazine in the UK interviewed Kristen Stewart for the December Issue.   While we don’t have access to the full text, Glamour has teased us with bits of Kristen talking about the security surrounding the look of Bella’s wedding dress as well as the over all rating of the film.  Kristen had this to say about the original cut of the wedding night love scene:

“It was so weird, it didn’t even feel like we were doing a Twilight film. I was like, ‘Bella! What are you doing? Wow! What is happening here?!’

“It was very surreal. We [originally] got rated R. They re-cut it.”

  1. Director’s Cut PLEASE!!!!!

  2. Yeah, Melissa. Twilight is a YA book. The majority of it’s readers are under 18 years old. I bet it will be like The Notebook though and have an extended and more explicit love scene on the dvd.

  3. Twilight Nymph says:

    I agree, director’s cut please. Even though it is considered YA, it was not intended to, I believe Stephenie Meyer went over that. Oh, and R is 17 and over and even SM said when BD was released as a book she didn’t recommend it for anyone younger than 15.

  4. Joshua L. Roberts says:

    I dunno… the wider majority of the populace see the Twilight Saga as a YA series with nothing greater than a PG-13 rating. I think Stephenie Meyer did a fantastic job writing BD, and I think her exclusion of explicit sex scenes allows most of us to imagine what could have happened versus being spoon fed it.

    BD isn’t like a horror movie where the film was made to be R from the beginning and then edited to to cater to some demographic, such as what happened to Alien vs. Predator. They simply redid a rather steamy sex scene… one sex scene that is… If it went from PG-13 to R, I think a lot of parents (of whom aren’t completely fans themselves) could get confused. Sometimes its better to leave some things to the imagination. 🙂

    I remember feeling this way about some of the rumors about Harry Potter DH getting an R rating for violence and disturbing scenes as well as the Extended Editions of LotR getting an R rating. In the end, they both were highly successful with their PG-13 ratings of which both pleased producers and the fans.

  5. MariposaAlice says:

    I think a lot of you are forgetting that Stephenie Meyer does not watch PG-13 movies..that is the main reason why it cannot go up to an R-rated movie.

    Anyway, I can’t wait to buy this issue here in the US! Kristen looks so pretty on it =)
