Robert Pattinson has revealed he "loved" filming the gory birth scene in Twilight: Breaking Dawn, which he thought was like a horror movie.

After vampire Edward (R-Patz) impregnates Bella (Kristen Stewart) she has to drink blood to stay alive, and then almost dies giving birth to their child.

Robert said: "It could have been an R-rated sequence - or a really ridiculous comedy sequence.

"We kind of shot it as an adult horror and then edited out the really gruesome bits. If you went on the set, it looked like a Saw movie, not a Twilight movie."

He adds: "There's literally been no blood in the films, except for single drops here and there. I walked in and Kristen was covered in fake blood and gore."

And the 25-year-old actor also really enjoyed shooting the honeymoon scenes on a remote Brazilian island.

He laughed: "I didn't have to spend ages taking my make-up off every day because I just jumped in the sea."

:: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 opens in cinemas on Friday, November 18.

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
