Twilight Director Catherine Hardwicke Recalls Robsten’s “Love At First Sight”

|

You know we love us some Robsten news here! Last week’s details of the couple breaking it down on the dance floor at the Chateau Marmont made us squeal, so you can imagine our glee when Twilight‘s director Catherine Hardwicke opened up about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart‘s epic romance. It’s an EPIC romance, okay — which is totally softly lit and sexy in real life too. And no one can tell us otherwise.

Since Catherine didn’t really have that much faith in him, RPattz had to get to L.A on his own for the original audition. She explained, “I looked at a couple pictures and was like, ‘I’m not sure’. He had been fired from his last job, he was unemployed, he was in debt”. Apparently, KStew came to Rob’s rescue. “Kristen was like, ‘It’s got to be Rob!’ She felt connected to him from the first moment. The electricity, or love at first sight, or whatever is is.” Hah. See it was destined. That attraction between the now-couple was so palpable that it actually had Hardwicke worried, so much so that she had to lay down the law with him. She says she told Rob, “You’ve got to realize that Kristen is 17 years old. She’s underage. You’ve got to focus, dude or you’re going to be arrested. I made him swear on a stack of Bibles.”¬†Hardwicke—who’s directing Red Riding Hood now—also has a piece of that romance right at home. Her beachfront property’s bed is where Rob kissed Kristen for the first time. For the screen test that is, and she said, “That bed made Pattinson who he is right now.” Looks like art mirrors life in this case!
