New York (ANI): Twilight star Robert Pattinson has said
that he is 'straight" and was quite 'uncomfortable" doing gay sex
scenes in Little Ashes. In the art house film, Pattinson
plays Spanish artist Salvador Dali, who embarks on a sexual
relationship with writer Frederico Garcia Lorca (played by Javier
"We were both straight, but he was Spanish, so much more
confident about being naked and stuff," the New York Daily News
quoted Pattinson as telling London's Times. However, the British
heartthrob admitted that love scenes could be just as 'awkward'
with a girl.

de Ravin in Remember Me was a closed set. And despite all
the precautions Pattinson took for the film - including 'a little
patch on your privates' - his sex scenes didn't go quite as
smoothly as he had hoped.
"I"d spent so long taping [the patch] round myself and then
literally it falls off within one second and it"s taped to the
sheet. You realize the whole crew are looking directly at your b---
crack," said Pattinson.
