Stephanie Meyer, the author of the ‘Twilight’ series — and the one we can thank for Robsten — remembers her favorite moments with the A-list couple, including the big moment Kristen walked down the aisle.
The first time author Stephanie Meyer met Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, they were in full costumes and make up, so she was meeting her imaginary best friends that she wrote three best-sellers about. What does she remember about Kristen in that wedding gown, and the first time she sat down with Rob?
“That’s not something you get every day,” Stephanie told Inquirer Entertainment about the first time meeting the cast. “They were dressed up as my imaginary friends.
The author also remembered when filming the first movie, how incredible it felt — it “feels like someone’s been inside your head and now they’re acting out your fantasy. It’s surreal and wonderful in a lot of ways.”
Stephanie Meyer Goes Head-To-Head With Robert Pattinson
The first time discussing the script, Stephanie had lunch with Rob, which didn’t go exactly how she had imagined.
“When Rob and I first met, we had lunch together [and] talked about the script,” she said in the interview. “We sat there and argued for a solid hour and a half about the Edward character. And he was really sure I was wrong [in parts]. I was telling him, ‘This is how Edward feels…’ He said, ‘No, this is how he feels here.’ We went back and forth [that way]. It was hilarious and fun.”
Kristen Stewart’s Wedding Day
“The one [moment] I think of first is filming the wedding scene,” Stephanie said when asked to recall memories with Kristen. “It took a really long time and it was freezing cold. A lot of the time, we were holed up in the garage of a house that we weren’t shooting in so we had all the gear there. Kristen was in her wedding dress—this really beautiful, satin gown that fitted her perfectly. She was very tired.”
The actress was “just so funny,” the 39-year-old novelist said. “It was near the very end and she was just realizing that this was it, this was the wedding. It was just fun, kind of relaxing in those circumstances. That is memorable for me.”
