During his promotional rounds for Water for Elephants, E.W. and Vanity Fair cover-boy Rob Pattinson talks about life beyond Twilight -- "I literally feel like we’ve been doing it my whole life" he says, and the upcoming Breaking Dawn movies.

Bizarre things happen in the two films, including a half-vampire baby's horrid birth. Pattinson says: "There’s some interesting and weird stuff going on—really very, very, very strange. It’s great. For a big mainstream movie, it’s the most obscure story line and really outside the box. It’s a horror movie. I’ve seen a few bits, and I just can’t see how it’s going to be PG-13… unless they cut everything out!"

Rest assured, everyone. An R-rating will never happen, confirms a Summit spokeswoman: "Breaking Dawn will be a PG-13. It will not be rated R."
