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.
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.
