Robert Pattinson. Shirtless. Filming 'New Moon.' Yes!

Newmoonitaly3_lShirtless shots of Robert Pattinson filming The Twilight Saga: New Moon in Italy have surfaced and to quote a top EW editor who first sent me a link: "Um, wow." If you haven’t read the second book in Stephenie Meyer’s series and intend to, stop reading now and just ogle the picture at left (if you are so inclined). Then click on our set gallery — which NOW features nine photos from Italy, including a couple steamy ones of Pattinson and Kristen Stewart kissing, in which she secures herself a Maxim cover (if she is so inclined) — and repeat.

We’re assuming these new paparazzi pics are from the scene in which Bella rushes to stop Edward — who believes she’s dead — from stepping into the sun and exposing his sparkling body to the masses so that the Volturi will be forced to kill him. The bad news: There’s no way my dream of this being the scene that Pattinson, Stewart, and Taylor Lautner unveil at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards is coming true. (Presumably those dots on Pattinson’s body are for the "diamond" effect that the post-production team will take its sweet time creating. Hint, hint. And UPDATE: We now know it’s the first trailer we’ll be seeing.) The good news: My faith in the wardrobe department, first established in the release of the Wolf Pack photo, remains steadfast. Pattinson’s hair looks under control (and somehow hotter than it did when they were shooting in Vancouver?). And I’m choosing to believe that no makeup artist was used in the development of those abs (but if there was, I do not even care).

    Regardless whether they used a little airbrushing to enhance those muscles, he has still been significantly working out since Twilight… I’m not a teenage fangirl at all, but I’ll admit to a little swooning (okay maybe more than a little…) No harm in looking, right?

    How adorable that the extras cheered Rob when he took his clothes off and when he kissed Kristen.

  • tonc

    The kiss shot between Pattinson and Stewart is amazing.

  • RP

    can someone hand me a brown paper bag to breath into??

  • holly

    Pattinson has been working out at the gym a lot as even Lainey admitted with her spies watching him. He has to strip off in his next two films Remember Me – sex scene for example and Unbound Captives where he plays a Comanche Warrior so he needs to keep up the exercising for those roles.

    Rob looks incredibly hot. But I’m more interested in the R/K flirting that was so obviously going on when the cameras weren’t rolling. Their chemistry is insane. Kristen Stewart is my idol if she’s tapping that after hours.

  • crispy

    Dude’s got a serious case of skin cancer going on there.

  • zoe

    The feedback from extras on the set said Pattinson looked incredible and they were right up close to him

    • Kiersten

      I NO RIGHT
