But when Robert Pattinson was told that he had to re-shoot scenes for the final Twilight movie at the weekend, he probably yelped with joy.
The 24-year-old was flown to the Caribbean, for starters, and once there, his ‘toil’ consisted of filming love scenes with his real life girlfriend Kristen Stewart, 21.
It was all meticulously covert in a bid to prevent the hotly-anticipated scenes between their characters Edward Cullen and Bella Swan from being observed.

There was controversy last month when stills from their honeymoon scenes, and even a short video, found their way onto the internet.
It’s widely believed that most of the steamy action, the stills showed the couple in bed, has already found it’s way onto the cutting room floor after failing to meet the criteria for the PG-13 film.
And so, despite the cast thinking they’d wrapped up the franchise for good in Toronto last week, Pattinson and Stewart were asked to do more sex scenes.
And it’s apt that the final scenes for Breaking Dawn were filmed right up to the break of dawn on the beach – 5am on Saturday morning to be exact – in St Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Armed police patrolled the beach, while a police launch bobbed about in the sea, trying to ensure that no-one would get a glimpse of filming.
Stewart showed off her stunning figure in a bright green bikini, that was unfastened at the halter – perhaps suggesting that a topless scene was on the agenda.
Jack Rathbone, 26 , who plays Jasper Hale, arrived on a separate flight from rumoured girlfriend Ashley Greene, 24, who is better known to fans as Alice Cullen.
She rocked up with her on-screen brother Kellan Lutz, 26, aka Emmett Cullen, and they both appeared to be in high spirits as they headed back to their hotel.

There’s no denying, however, that these sex scenes between vampire Edward and his enduring love, Bella, are what fans are really desperate to see.
The characters finally consummate their love after years of abstinence culminates with a wedding, the nuptials were filmed in Squamish, near Vancouver earlier in the month.
All involved are hoping that the big day will remain shrouded in mystery until the film, which will be shown in two parts, hits the big screen – first on November 18, with the second in 2012.
Pattinson will be pleased about this, he was incensed by the leaked stills and footage.
In an interview with MTV, the young Brit revealed just how angry he was about it all: ‘It’s just ridiculous. I literally can’t believe that it happened.’
‘I want the ‘Twilight’ troops to mobilize, all the good fans, and find out who these little sh**s are and just hack into their computers and destroy them. I’m being genuinely serious, ‘Twilight’ fans … Punish them.’ Agencies
