Happy Breaking Dawn Day! How are you celebrating this most joyous day on which Edward and Bella finally get to have (marital) sex? Is it by reading cast interviews to search for signs of obvious sexual tension? Great! EW has you covered. Here’s Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart discussing the all-important love scene (emphasis ours):

Stewart: Cinematically, cut all together, it’s awesome. I really like it, but we didn’t really do that scene.
Pattinson: And when we did they kept telling us to stop. [laughs]
Stewart: I know! Bill kept going, “Stop thrusting!” [Laughs]…I mean I didn’t actually want to have sex with him on set but….
Pattinson: Why not? [laughs] You can see my butt crack - why does butt crack not make it an R? You see my butt crack the whole time.
Stewart: No, you don’t, They darkened it or something.
Lautner: They shortened it, or I think they erased the crack.
Pattinson: It was really Kristen’s fault it was going R-rated. [To Stewart] Your fancy moves - no one’s seen moves like that in a PG-13 movie! [Laughs]

Yeah, they’re barely even trying to hide their “rehearsals” anymore. Hang in there, Taylor Lautner; only one more year of being the third wheel.
