"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.
For example, he said that for his on-screen romance with Emilie 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.
