Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart recreated their on-screen chemistry on stage, after they won the award for the best kiss at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards.
After the affection they displayed at the awards show last year, another public kiss from the famous duo was highly anticipated.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon makes a clean sweep
Actually, it was a big night for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which neatly swept the 2010 MTV Movie Awards and took several honors on Sunday night. Besides, the best kiss award for its lead actors, New Moon took the best movie award, Pattinson picked up awards for Best Male performance and Global Superstar, and Kristen took the award for the Best Female performance.
Pattinson and Stewart seemed quite confident about their ‘best kiss’ win, but they stumbled while re-creating the passionate expression for their live audience.
To be perfectly honest with you, it takes a lot of smoke and mirrors to make us look good kissing and we don't want to let you guys down -- Kristen Stewart
"Thanks a lot guys, there was very stiff competition this year so it's very nice to win this two years in a row," Robert told fans.
Robert and Kristen did kiss onstage
But as fans started to shout, Kristen addressed the more important issue, saying, “So I guess the thing to do is we're supposed to kiss each other.”
She pacified the excitement for a while by telling the crowd that the two of them would not look as good as they did kissing on screen "To be perfectly honest with you, it takes a lot of smoke and mirrors to make us look good kissing and we don't want to let you guys down," she said, but surprisingly added, “We'll give it a shot.”
Stewart and Pattinson, who are rumored to be a real-life couple, then made a few awkward attempts at a kiss, but just failed to get it right. The whole awkwardness was obviously intentional but Steward quickly turned to the mike, saying, "We probably shouldn't do this right now."
Right then, Pattinson grabbed her by the waist and quickly kissed her lips. The very next moment, he was pushed away by Stewart, who thanked the audience before the duo left the stage.
Eclipse will bring you much more
Eclipse, the third movie the Twilight franchise, will have “lots more action, a lot of romance, werewolves and vampires teaming up for the common good,” said Peter Facinelli, who plays Carlisle Cullen in the movie.
All the action on The MTV Movie Awards can be caught on MTV on June 7 at 9pm and June 8 at 7pm.
