Javier Beltran on His Sex Scenes with Robert Pattinson

Beltran

Little Ashes actor Javier Beltran has a much different perspective on the gay scenes in the Salvador Dali biopic than his co-star Robert Pattinson. Beltran appears on April's OUT magazine.

More on Little Ashes here.

Said Beltran: "We didn't have any problems with the sexuality. On the set it was less important than the emotions. The sex scenes are beautiful—tragic and painful."

Pattinson told GQ: “And here I am, with Javier [Beltrán], who
plays Lorca, doing an extremely hard-core sex
scene, where I have a nervous breakdown afterward. And because we’re both straight, what
we were doing seemed kind of ridiculous. (Now he’s sort of laughing.) Trying to do it doggie-style. Trying to have
a nervous breakdown while doing it doggie-
style. And it wasn’t even a closed set. There
were all these Spanish electricians giggling
to themselves.”

    He looks like a very very very young Oliver Reed. Y’all youngun’s don’t remember him do you? You know who I’m talking about DAVID EHRENSTEIN.

    My Uk friend jill saw it at Raindance and thought Rob and Javier were amazing. Why does this have such a limited release in the US. Stupid producers. The moonlit water scene is unbelievable she told me.

    Yes and no.

    one wonders how much Patterson’s answer was scripted more by an uncomfortable USA PR firm as vs the Britt Kid. Mybe he is an idiot but maybe his idiotic response had more to do with his PR team

    Andy Towle wonders why his traffic is down 50% in less than a year. I can go to any woman’s site to see half-naked haterosexual males. Nothing special. Out magazine and many other traitorous “gay” magazines are in trouble for the same reason.

    You can say anything or do anything relating to homosexuality as long as you are not known to be gay yourself. The great writer Marcel Proust came to that intelligent and CORRECT point 90 years ago.

    Great way to ruin the believability factor. This is one reason why straight actors shouldn’t play gay parts. They can’t keep their mouths shut, when it comes to proving their “manhood”.

    Now THAT’S how you respectfully respond to the “gay sex scene” questions. Class act guy! (unlike the ass act clown known as Robert Pattinson)
    sadly, seeing how the gay community has a fixation on what it can’t have and loves to hype men who wouldn’t even so much look at them in the eyes for it being “uncomfortable”, Pattinson will get praised this guy’s comments, career and beauty will go unnoticed.

    On a superficial point: This smoldering exotic hunk > generic looking Pattinson any day.

    The key difference between Beltran and Patterson that I note is that Beltran is a lot more media-savvy. And it ends right there.

    Pattinson really didn’t say anything that horrible in his GQ interview, other than sex scenes were new to him and that he was working outside of his comfort zone. His assertion that the movie probably never would have been released if not for him was immodest, but possibly true.

    Remember that Rob is still very young and new to all of this. He said he’s never even done a sex scene with a female so he’d probably feel uncomfortable doing that even; and where he’s a nervous guy and worried about getting embarrassed plus being naked in front of everyone lol… def. uncomfortable! Would a gay male feel uncomfortable in a first-time sex scene with a female? Probably.

    I liked the way Rob interviewed about Little Ashes. If anyone has watched his other interviews or read them, you would see that he gets extremely nervous doing them. At times he tends to say what pops into his head at the moment. He has done some very serious interviews also. I feel like Beltran’s response was more programed. He said what was needed to say so feathers are not ruffled(so to speak).

    I also do not feel as if Rob was being immodest with the comment about Little Ashes not being released if it wasn’t for him. He was simply stating a fact. He probably wishes this was not the case, but it is. The fan girls will run to see the movie beceuse he is in it and not for the movie itself. He just did not phrase it right. Hopfully, they will come away with a new respect for his acting ability. It is the the same with his other movie How To Be. How many fans are going to see that movie just because Rob is in it. I would say the majority of them.

    I also thought Rob’s GQ pictures were sexier.

    What did Pattinson say that was so bad? I don’t think pretending to take it up the ass in front of maybe dozens of people is supposed to be comfortable unless your a porn star. Jesus, when did everyone get so damned sensitive?

    When I look at Javier Beltran, (Oh forgive me for heaven’s sake), I could say that he looks like a gay! well about Rob’s comment, doesn’t he deserve to be true for himself, he is not a showbiz type of person due to his fame, he is still a honest man before and right now, if you don’t like what he said, then so be it, Rob knows that all his comment has a good and bad outcome for all the people who will read and listen to it. But that’s what he wants, to be loved by everyone for being just the way he is, if you don’t like him that way, we don’t care we still love him for being a natural person even though he is famous!!! I still love HIM and I really hate the gay scene, but as long as I know that Rob is not a homo,there’s nothing to be worried.

    Eiyuu:

    A.) Get a f*cking education before you type something out on a blog. I’d rather makeout with my nana before reading whatever broken down English post you wrote again.

    B.) Congrats, of all blogs to pick from you selected a homo blog to take part in. We all like it “up the butt” here….welcome! and get ready to read a whole lot about us homos.

    p.s~ why do I get the feeling many of those fawning over Pattinson and excusing his commentary are acne faced 14 year old girls who hijacked this and the other Pattinson related threads. Go drink your milk and have mommy read you a bed time story little ones.

    I love Rob’s reaction to the sex scenes, he’s only 22 after all. Javier is just repeating what the director and writer say about the sex scenes. Robert is just being honest about it. He has every right to be embarrased

  15. **** says

    Yeah, I was going to say, is every one sure he’s straight. He looks mighty homosexual to me. I mean if I saw him out about town I’d definitely think to hit on him (were I inclined to hit on a boy with a boxer’s nose, that is).

    Can’t we all just enjoy a hot man on the cover of a magazine without turning it into a saga of how self-hating/oppressed the gay community is? Most films around gay themes star straight actors, so they put straight actors on the cover. It would be lovely if they put more openly gay actors on the cover, but the supply is limited and it would exclude most films which deal with gay themes (as they star straight actors).

    Plus, he’s hot. Really, really hot.

    I loved Twilight and I loved Little Ashes. I don’t think Robert was trying to be arrogant by saying those things. About the sex scene- he’s never done a sex scene before and I would find it oddly entertaining also if there were people standing around watching. About the movie only making it out because of him. People take that out of context. It WAS a low budget film, and the only reason that people knew about it was because little girls and their Twi moms were googling him and find out that it was his next project and wanted to see it. Either way-who cares what he says, Little Ashes is a beautiful story, about something that some people look down upon and the focus should be on that matter.

    I loved that movie. I admit it that I started to watch it because of Robert. But I also am interested in Dalí, so it was a win-win. My heart grew fonder of Javier and Rob. They both played fantastic! I love the depth and the struggle within this movie. And I don’t see where are the problems with both their answers? I also would feel uncomfortable in that situation. It’s nothing against being gay but most of guys feeling strange if they are confronted with these type of things. It’s mostly completely different with women..
