Twilight celebrity Taylor Lautner has admitted that he found the Breaking Dawn – Part 1 birth part “funny” to film.
The 19-year-old, who takes on werewolf Jacob Black, reported that he repeatedly creased up as shooting the sequence, which sees Edward (Robert Pattinson) playact a caesarean on wife Bella with his fangs when their unborn half-human, half-vampire baby diminishes her health.
“Sometimes it was hard to keep a straight face,” he revealed on a Breaking Dawn blooper reel. “There was one point where she stops breathing and she’s out of it and I have to give her CPR.
“Her lips are closed and suddenly I’ve gotta wrap my whole mouth around her lips. It ended up working but it was funny at moments.”
Twilight producer Wyck Godfrey recently described the birth scene as the “hardest thing to conceive”, adding: “I think it really pushes the line. It was terrifying and deeply emotional.”
Stewart herself commented that she was amused by the “graphic and bloody” nature of Bella’s labor.
“It should be impactful, it should be scary,” she said. “I hope it doesn’t scare people, but on the other hand, I hope it does.”
