As, as a bonding exercise with my 10-year old daughter, I recently laboured through New Moon.
Where he was topless, for 80% of the time.
But New Moon was “special,” as the directors for his winter film, Valentine’s Day, were informed.
As he explains: “Originally I was supposed to take off my shirt [in Valentine's Day]. The script said we were walking into school and Willy takes off his shirt. I said, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa. Time out. He’s gonna take off his shirt in the middle of school? No, no, no. The reason I took off my shirt for New Moon is because it’s written in the book that way. And there’s reasons behind it.”
