‘New Moon’ Won’t Be Delivering the Full Monty
Sorry, Twi-hards; despite what Jamie Campbell Bower has to say, there will be no skin-tastic moments in the Twilight sequel New Moon.
Bower, who plays Volutri leader Caius in the upcoming flick, piqued the interest of randy vampire enthusiasts everywhere when he intimated that there would be a nude scene in the film.
“We just all sit there, completely naked, for one scene,” Bower teased during an interview at Comic-Con. “[I]t’s me, Michael Sheen and Christopher [Heyerdahl]; we just sit there, naked…It’s a full-body shot, and then Peter [Facinelli] comes in, and it all gets a bit awkward.”
But now New Moon director Chris Weitz has rushed forward to dispel Bower’s fanciful notion.
“Dear all,” Weitz writes in a statement. “I would like to put everyone’s mind at rest and let them know that the Volturi are not naked! Jamie has what you might call a dry sense of humor and almost managed to convince me — which is why he’s such a good actor. Anyway, be assured that, even though we do want the look of the Volturi to be a bit of a surprise, they are always — as in the book! — fully clothed.”
Aw, shucks. But we still get shirtless RPattz and Taylor Lautner scenes, right?
