Twilight “Breaking Dawn” birth scene speculation takes on a life of its own
By Kim Palacios
HollywoodNews.com: I was immediately skeptical of “Breaking Dawn” director Bill Condon’s comment to NBC Los Angeles last month, in which he said he was “excited” to film the Renesmee birth scene. Though the article didn’t get much attention at the time, recent comments made by Robert Pattinson and Melissa Rosenberg have. Their comments revive an important question: is the scene really feasible given other information confirmed about “Breaking Dawn”?
“Other information” refers to a recent Summit rep’s comment to Entertainment Weekly, in which a target PG-13 rating for the “Breaking Dawn” films was revealed. Such a rating flies in the face of the idea that the Renesmee birthing scene would be put on film.
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has made mixed comments about the scene, first saying to the Los Angeles Times: “You can do childbirth without seeing childbirth. … It doesn’t mean it’s any less evocative of an experience.” She later posted an effective retraction on her Facebook page: “Not sure where some of you got the impression I intended to leave birth scene out of Breaking Dawn, but it’s inaccurate. Of course the birth scene will be in there! And the sex scenes! And the feathers! And the blood! Perhaps you misinterpreted what I said about not needing to see BUCKETS of blood.”
Even Robert Pattinson, who recently admitted that he has not yet read “Breaking Dawn”, gave an opinion based on his own limited knowledge of the scene. “The only thing I know about [Breaking Dawn] is the famous scene, the kind of cesarean scene…I do not envy Bill Condon to have to think of some way to do that.”
