Rob and Kristen’s real-life romance was and still is every bit as enthralling as their ‘Twilight’ relationship. Now Catherine Hardwicke, the director who brought them together, reveals details about the former couple’s instant connection in a new interview.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may be broken up but we still can’t get enough of Robsten! And we’re not the only ones who think they make the perfect pair. Catherine Hardwicke, the director who cast them together in Twilight, says she was amazed by the “electric” chemistry Rob and Kristen had from the moment they first met. Read on for all the details!
When Did Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Fall In Love? — 1st Moment Revealed
Rob, 27, and Kristen, 23, have had the most epic romance on-screen and off so it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing Edward and Bella in the Twilight films. But it turns out Rob actually had to compete for his career-making role — and it was his chemistry with Kristen that sealed the deal. Catherine says:
I thought Kristen was just amazing in Into the Wild. When I read the novel Twilight, I kept picturing her in that scene, where she’s sitting in the trailer, hoping to seduce Emile Hirsch. Her yearning was palpable, real, and intense. I thought, “This girl would be wonderful.” So Summit flew me out to Pittsburgh, where she was shooting Adventureland. We took an actor with us and improvised a lot of scenes. To find Edward was tricky, because how he was written, he was perfect, with these cheekbones, and he was also wise beyond his years. We whittled it down from hundreds of actors to four. I’d only talked to Rob on the phone when he was much younger. He flew out on his own dime and stayed on his agent’s couch. The four actors came over to my house and we workshopped all the “chemistry” scenes. With Rob and Kristen, it was apparent that those two just connected and had a magnetism for each other that was electric, right there on the spot.
Wow! With that kind of chemistry, we’re not surprised Rob and Kristen quickly fell head over heels in love!
Will Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Give Their Love Another Try?
“Rob is clearly not over Kristen. When he saw a recent photograph of Kristen, he smiled and said she was wearing his baseball hat. It’s just so obvious,” a friend of Rob’s tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. ”He will ask about her, but really nonchalantly because he doesn’t want anyone to know he still has strong feelings for her. Rob still loves Kristen.”
We think Rob and Kristen should give their love one more try. After all, you don’t make an undeniable connection like that every day! What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Would super hot chemistry be enough to make you take your ex back? Let us know!
