The heartthrob - who plays vampire Edward Cullen in the franchise, feels the PG 13 movies, based on the hit teen novels are more romantic because of the sexual tension they build up.

Robert, 24, said in an interview with ABC's Nightline: "[Fans] like that moment before [sex]... the kind of tipping point before it goes over. I mean, everybody likes that. That's the best part, for a relationship."

But the British actor admits that he doesn't think the films, or Stephanie Meyer's books, would be as popular if they took a more old fashioned approach.

The actor, who is rumoured to be going out with Kristen Stewart, who plays Edward's girlfriend Bella Swann in the films, said: "If there was a hard and fast decision by both [Bella and Edward] saying, 'Yeah we're going to remain virgins our entire lives, it's never going to happen,' I don't think it would be as popular a series."
