Playing young Salvador Dali in 'Little Ashes', Robert Pattinson shares what it feels like to have his first sex scene with another man, dubbing it to be more difficult than he'd anticipated.

Having to do a sex scene with his male co-star for "Little Ashes", Robert Pattinson admits that he struggled for the open set intimate shots. Revealing the matter in the April issue of GQ magazine, the "Twilight" hottie shares, "I was kind of crossing lines of what I thought I was comfortable doing. I had to do all this naked stuff."

"And here I am, with Javier [Beltran], who plays Lorca, doing an extremely hard-core sex scene, where I have a nervous breakdown afterward," the 22-year-old furthermore recalls the time he has to shoot the raunchy scene, "and because we're both straight, what we were doing seemed kind of ridiculous." He then added, "There's all these gay sex scenes. And y'know, I haven't even done a sex scene with a girl, in my whole career."

Though confessing of being ready on doing "something weird", Pattinson still finds it hard to do the naked scene in an open set. "Trying to do it doggie-style. Trying to have a nervous breakdown while doing it doggie-style," he says. "And it wasn't even a closed set. There were all these Spanish electricians giggling to themselves."

"Little Ashes" is set against the backdrop of Fascist Spain in 1922. It follows the love affair between Salvador Dali and poet Federico Garcia Lorcathree. Taking its title from Salvador Dali's 1927-28 painting Cenicitas, it stars Robert Pattinson as Dali, Javier Beltran as Federico Garcia Lorca and Matthew McNulty as Luis Bunuel. This drama film from director Paul Morrison has been premiered at the 16th annual Raindance film festival in London back in October. It will get its limited U.S. release on May 8.

I'm looking forward to seeing Little Ashes. Rob is such a brilliant actor and musician. I'm so glad Americans will be able to see more of Rob. His talent goes way beyond playing cedric diggory and edward cullen. We have to remember that he is an actor, he is not really the characters that he portrays. GO ROB!

I will see the movie...Robert Pattinson is doing a role most young actors don't have the balls to do. He is an ACTOR...I'm sure as good as Twilight has been to his career he doesn't want to be known only as Edward Cullen...BTW...I don't care what size he is... or how much money he has.

I feel pretty sympathetic towards Rob. I mean, I think that he is a excellent actor and has guts for taking on this role.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but, as it seems Robert gets very in depth with his portrayals, he will be quite good in a role that allowed him to research the character through biographies...despite his being uncomfortable in some scenes. If I were an be able to cross the lines of comfortableness, I mean, and do it well, would be rewarding, as it probably is for Robert. Isn't that the point of acting? He was just being honest and I doubt he meant it to be plastered everywhere. Regardless, I can't think of anyone else in young Hollywood now that would be able to play that part, he is on a whole other level than most other actors in his age range. I give him credit for going beyond his comfort zone early in his career. He unknowingly gives the impression (and those who know him well support it)that he is very, very creative and I am interested to see how his career develops with acting or music in the future. From what I've seen (and heard)he can excel in whatever future he chooses. As for him being attractive? The musical talent would have been enough for me, but he's just got EVERYTHING

If you don't like the movie or Rob, don't see them! Jeez, that is what soooo many people said when hearing his being cast as Edward and now everyone is in love with him(present company excluded!) Just see how the movie is before you bash him or it.Btw, I'm a 37 year old Mom of 4 and I think he's very handsome! Just give the gys a break, you don't have to see his films but don't bash on those that do.

Well..He's an actor right?So i guess..Being an actor is being able to do or to potray different roles..That is why its called an ACTOR..You are only acting..Not real..Or should i say with connection to the actor's real life..Unless he/she is portraying a life story of its own..I mean so what if its a gay role..If the price is right..Its kind of versatility as an actor..Robert Pattinson is making his own name as an actor..Trying to do well on his chosen career..And i dont see anything wrong with that..As long as your not stepping on anyone's feet..Im on your side.
