Nobody likes doing overtime. But when Robert Pattinson was told that he had to re-shoot scenes for the final Twilight movie at the weekend, he probably yelped with joy.
The 24-year-old was flown to the Caribbean, for starters, and once there, his 'toil' consisted of filming love scenes with his real life girlfriend Kristen Stewart, 21.
It was all meticulously covert in a bid to prevent the hotly-anticipated scenes between their characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan from being observed.
There was controversy last month when stills from their honeymoon scenes, and even a short video, found their way onto the internet. It's widely believed that most of the steamy action, the stills showed the couple in bed, has already found its way onto the cutting room floor after failing to meet the criteria for the PG-13 film.
And so, despite the cast thinking they'd wrapped up the franchise for good in Vancouver last week, Pattinson and Stewart were asked to do more sex scenes.
And it's apt that the final scenes for Breaking Dawn were filmed right up to the break of dawn on the beach - 5am on Saturday morning to be exact - in St Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
