Robert Pattinson on whether Breaking Dawn promotes abstinence

It doesn’t sound like Robert Pattinson believes Breaking Dawn is an advert for abstinence.

His character, sexy vampire Edward Cullen, may not believe in sex before marriage – but that doesn’t mean everyone who watches the film should feel the same.

“If it is promoting abstinence,” Rob said at a press conference in Stockholm. “It’s created an entire generation of young girls who are desperate to watch people have sex.”

“It seems traditionally that the girls in movies are scared to loose their virginity and guys are like I’ll do anything and it’s funny because they turned the roles around and Edward is the one who is holding back and in the third movie, Bella is pushing for it.”
