However, that doesn't stop the pair from getting hot and heavy in the upcoming third Twilight: Saga film.

"Kissing felt a little bit more natural in Eclipse, even if there was plenty of it," Pattinson, 24, tells Parade magazine. "In New Moon and Twilight it was always like, 'Oh, I'm gonna kill you if I kiss you' or something. It was always kind of odd. But, in this one, they both understand their situation a lot more, which makes it easier. It's the first time Kristen and I have been able to just act like a normal couple."

So does that on-screen chemistry mean Pattinson and Stewart have a connection in real life too?

"I guess people like stories, that's my basic conclusion," the actor says when asked point blank if he's dating Stewart. "They just want everything in our lives to be like Twilight. The truth is...that I wish I had a few more hours of sleep today so I could think of a better answer. I'm always so exhausted all the time. Lack of sleep is like taking a Valium."

Pattinson might skip the dating questions, but he can confess to being similar to Edward when it comes to having sex.

"Nowadays, everyone just goes around screwing everyone for no reason," he says. "I guess Edward doesn't really want to sort of cheapen his relationship with Bella, even though she's pushing him to go all the way. He's got this certain idea of how it should go with the love of his life. He wants to do it right and not just follow his base instincts. I guess I'm a bit old fashioned in that way as well."

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse hits theaters on June 30.
