Rob Pattinson Struggled With Gay Scenes

Rob Pattinson may be best known for his role as Edward Cullen in 'Twilight' but he's also set to play Salvador Dali in the upcoming summer flick Little Ashes.

Rob shot to international fame as a sexy vampire and got used to women throwing themselves at him and admits the toughest part of playing the Spanish surrealist artist was having to strip down and shoot gay scenes.

He tells GQ magazine, "(The hardest part was) 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.”

The project is one of three Dali biopics in the works. Al Pacino will play the artist in Dali & I: The Surrealist Story, while Antonio Banderas is set to star in another tribute film. Who do you think would make the best Salvador?
