Director: No Full Moons In ‘New Moon'

Despite rumors to the contrary, the cast will keeps its clothes on

Despite the hopes of millions of rabid Twi-hards and a cheeky statement from a "Twilight" star – "New Moon" won't be showing any full moons!

Last week, "New Moon" actor Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays a member of the evil Volturi vampire clan, jokingly told MTV News, "We just all sit there, completely naked, for one scene…it's me, Michael Sheen and Christopher [Heyerdahl]; we just sit there, naked."

But on Monday, "New Moon" director Chris Weitz set the record straight about his cast keeping their clothes on.

"I would like to put everyone's mind at rest and let them know that the Volturi are not naked!" Chris said in a statement. "Jamie has what you might call a dry sense of humor and almost managed to convince me — which is why he's such a good actor. Anyway, be assured that, even though we do want the look of the Volturi to be a bit of a surprise, they are always — as in the book! — fully clothed."
