Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular actors of our time. Whether you’re a fan of historical dramas or popular music movies, you’ll likely have seen his face pop up in countless films over the years. His acting ability and timeless good looks make him the perfect choice for any role, and as we’ve established, he’s no stranger to nudity and romance. From his first on screen kiss with Kristen Stewart in 2011’s The Rover to his explosive on-screen chemistry with Madonna in 2015’s Rebel Heart, this year has certainly been an eventful one for Pattinson.

Here, we’ll explore some of the most popular sex scenes from a career that’s truly set the world on fire. We’ll be looking at some of the most revealing moments from the most popular films, discussing the significance of each kiss and judging it on how well it was executed and how it contributed to the overall success of the film.

The Rover (2011)

One of the most well-known films of the 2010s, the critically-acclaimed romantic thriller The Rover stars Robert Pattinson as Joe. After being dumped by his girlfriend Joe meets Estelle, a young and beautiful woman who becomes his assistant and partner. It is an opportunity for Joe to start over and rediscover his lost passion, though he has to navigate the pitfalls that come along with working with a beautiful and captivating woman. As the pair embark on a crime-ridden journey around the UK, they develop an uneasy but undeniably romantic bond.

One of the most talked-about sex scenes in this year’s Oscar nominated film features Pattinson and Stewart at a stoplight. As soon as they lock lips, the camera freezes and focuses on the pair’s interplay. It’s an intimate moment of emotional connection and physical attraction. Even in a film stuffed full of steamy romances and stunning locations, this scene managed to steal the show.

The Passion (2015)

Another romantic thriller that took the world by surprise was 2015’s The Passion. This film marks a turning point in the actor’s career as he finally decides to play a character with whom he can share real feelings. Starring alongside Christian Bale and Marion Cotillard, Pattinson portrays Pierre Bezuhanec, a French aristocrat who travels to a remote village in search of a bride. After being widowed, he sets out to find the woman of his dreams and ends up falling in love with the village’s young maid Elsa. As he learns to open up his heart to love, he discovers that not all are friendly towards him, and that not all women are as sweet as they seem.

This year’s Christmas movie stars Bale as an alcoholic painter who can’t seem to get his life together, while Cotillard portrays the self-sacrificing wife of his best friend. In one of the film’s key scenes, Christian asks his wife for a divorce and then immediately regrets it after they’ve had sex. Realizing that she’s the one, he flees the country with her in tow. The twist is that it’s not a happy ending as both of them end up dead. This scene has been described as one of the most intimate and revealing sex scenes in recent history. While the film was critically panned, it still made over a billion bucks and became one of the most popular films of 2015.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Of course, there were also the action-packed blockbuster movies in which the A-list stars made even more of an impact. Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the most memorable, with a star-packed cast that includes Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and Emily Blunt. While the first Mad Max film was pretty tame by today’s standards—there were no sex scenes, it was rated 15, and it was nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Actor—this prequel turned everything up to 11. It starts with a bang as we’re thrown head first into the action with some of the most iconic images in movie history. After that, we’re treated to a violent and sensual feast that will leave even the most ardent cinema enthusiast breathless.

The film opens with a chase scene in which Thurman’s Max is pursued by police while clad only in a Speedo. In another iconic scene, Mad Max is seen fighting off a gang of three women who have chained him up before taking him down and brutally fucking him. This scene will become an instant classic, and it led to many imitators as fans scrambled to replicate it.

Beauty And The Beast (2017)

Last but not least, let’s not forget about the highly anticipated Beauty And The Beast. This romantic comedy brought the perfect blend of comedy and heartache as Dan Stevens, a naive and likable college professor, teams up with a gorgeous and spirited student (Emma Watson) to navigate the challenging terrain of love. As they bumble through the complex minefield of a relationship, they experience all the ups and downs that come along with any new romance. Luckily, their love is tested and proves to be stronger than any obstacle that they face.

This movie was a critical and commercial success, making over a billion dollars worldwide. It also won the award for Best Adapted Screenplay at the 2018 Golden Globes, cementing its status as one of the most talked-about films of the year. One of the most memorable scenes is when Dan and Emma finally consummate their relationship. Despite being a sex-positive film, this was one of the most heavily censored films of all time. The cut sex scenes were so heavily edited that they were nearly un-sexually explicit (with the exception of one shot of Dan falling asleep after making love). Nevertheless, this is one of the most talked-about films of all time, and it will be shown in theaters for a special anniversary release to commemorate its 10th anniversary in 2022.

So, There You Have It

In 2022, it’ll be 10 years since The Rover was first released. It was originally slated for a December 2021 release, but it was pushed back to June 2021. Now that the world is on the road to recovery, it’s a good time to reflect on these 10 iconic years.

As we established at the beginning of this article, Robert Pattinson is no stranger to nudity and romance. It’ll be interesting to see what roles he tackles next as he continues to evolve as an actor and gain more experience. While we await these exciting new challenges, it’s important to remember the rich legacy that he’s built over the past 10 years. He may be best known for his acting prowess in the 21st century, but it’s fair to say he’s made a significant impact on the movie industry since his first outing in December 2011.
