Kristen Stewart’s 'Twilight' Director Praises Her Bedroom Scene Skills & Makes Us Cringe in the Process

Kristen StewartRupert Sanders isn't the only director to be smitten with KStew. Her Twilight: Breaking Dawn I and II director Bill Condon says he loved working with Kristen Stewart. His praise starts off glowing but then it sure takes a strange, cringey turn.


Vanity Fair asked Condon if he felt vindicated when Stewart became the first American actress to win France's Cesar for her role in Clouds of Sils Maria

I’d been a fan of Kristen’s before Breaking Dawn, and I loved working with her. She’s incredibly smart and committed, she played such a range of emotions across a single film, from wedding jitters to death throes to vampire orgasm — I mean, if you can pull that off, you can do anything.

Condon had us at "incredibly smart and committed" -- and he lost us at "vampire orgasm." Shudder.

That aside, what glowing praise from a former director. I think he saw a lot more potential in Stewart's range than maybe a lot of moviegoers did when the Twilight movies came out. And it sounds like he deeply appreciated her hard work and dedication. It's quite decent of him to be so effusive of Stewart's acting. (I was genuinely impressed with her performance in Still Alice.)

But can we get back to the vampire orgasm? What the hell is that, and how is it different from a human orgasm? And why bring it up at all?

It's been a while since I saw the movie (for my job, you guys) but I couldn't recall anything extraordinarily vampire-like about Bella and Edward's lovemaking scene. So I tracked it down on YouTube and now that I've seen it again, wow ... is it corny to describe it as anticlimactic? I think the glitter bomb that exploded as Bella came was more expressive. 

There are women all over the world faking better orgasms every single day.

Turns out it's lame because it was edited down to practically nothing. Stewart later told Graham Norton, "It is a bit full-on, but it's edited. I see scenes and I think why is music playing over that. I was definitely making sounds and it could be so sexy and it's not." She added that according to the ratings board "thrusting is a huge problem of the children," so ... that's why her vampire orgasm is so blah. Oh well, guess we'll never see that vampire orgasm the way Condon did!
