Normally I would not care about an actor walking around shirtless on a film set....but an aspect of the story caught my attention and comment is warranted.
Robert Pattinson bares his chest for scenes in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" with filming currently underway in Italy.
Just Jared has the photos.
There's also pics of a lip-filled kissing scene with co-star Kristen Stewart...
In Pattinson's solo photos that have his six pack abs--lines are painted on ala "300", as are black dots which are apparently used as visual effects reference points.
We know that Pattinson's role has been "beefed up" versus that of his character from the book and that he is competing for tween screams in the film with the shirtless Wolf Pack also in the film.
Have not read the book have not seen the 1st Twilight...so therefore I don't know the context or anything but it just seems like the filmmakers want as much beefcake as possible here. What other reason could there be? And what's with the CGi enhancements for Robbie--adding story or sex appeal?
Just pointing out here a bit of hypocrisy here.. I have had women complain to me that film often objectifies their gender with scenes of gratuitous nudity-especially the teen/adult comedy genre...Ladies I ask you are these bare chests really necessary in New Moon?--Is this not the same thing that you females complain about in Guy Flicks?
Meanwhile, MTV says the first trailer for the November 20th. sequel will debut on the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, airing at 9:00 pm ET on Sunday. Then at 10:45 p.m., the high-definition version will go online ...
