Pattinson and Beltran: Director Talks of Sex, Acting in Little Ashes

Ashessex

Little Ashes director Paul Morrison discusses the sex scenes between Robert Pattinson and Javier Beltran in the forthcoming film about Salvador Dali and Federico Garcia Lorca:

Ashesonesheet "I think they were difficult, but I think all sex scenes are difficult, and for all actors of all ages. And I find them difficult, certainly, to direct, and ... you have to get very intense about them, and as a director be clear as to what you're looking for so they know that they're acting and they're not doing it, and I think Rob probably found it harder than Javier, to draw the line between performance and, ah, but that was also in the nature of the part, that Dali's sexuality was so complicated, complex and mysterious, I think even to himself, and his fear of sexuality, and if you're playing that role, that kind of rubs off on you, so I think sex and pain were so closely entwined with Dali that to play those scenes is also hard, and the triangle sex scene is an unbelievably difficult scene. One of those scenes in everybody's life when you're doing something and you know it's really really wrong, it really, it goes against the grain, but you're doing it, so playing that scene is hard, it's always hard."

Both actors have also spoken on this topic. 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." Said Pattinson: "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."

Ashes

Access Hollywood presented some new footage last Friday of the Salvador Dali - Federico Lorca romance Little Ashes starring Robert Pattinson and Javier Beltran. None of the rumored sex scenes, but a bit of beachside romance and some awkward acting with a stuffed bear.

And for you Pattinson fans who just want another bite there's a new skin-baring one-sheet floating around (though it's not been confirmed if it's official or fan-made).

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.”

Boy Culture has a nice selection of scans from the article.


Robert Pattinson and Javier Beltran on Little Ashes One-Sheet

Littleashes_2

Here's the official one-sheet for Little Ashes starring Robert Pattinson and Javier Beltran, which details the intimate relationship between Spanish artist Salvador Dalí and poet Federico Garcia Lorca.

Last November, the Guardian wrote: "Described by its producers as 'racy' and 'sexy', the film will show Dalí and Lorca's feelings deepen into a love affair which the sexually repressed artist tries and fails to consummate. As a substitute, Lorca sleeps with a female friend, with Dalí present as a voyeur. The interpretation, by British screenwriter Philippa Goslett, is likely to cause controversy among biographers and historians. Although a physically intimate relationship between the men has long been rumoured, Dali told interviewers more than once that he rejected the homosexual Lorca's attempts to seduce him."

Here are some of the first shots from the film.


First Look: Robert Pattinson and Javier Beltran in Little Ashes

Back in November 2007, I posted about a new film called Little Ashes that would detail the intimate relationship between Spanish artist Salvador Dalí and poet Federico Garcia Lorca. Harry Potter and soon-to-be-released Twilight actor Robert Pattinson had been signed up to play Dalí.

Javier Beltran was later signed up to play Lorca, and these are some of the first shots.
