Catherine Hardwicke, the director of the first of the films that adapted the series of novels on the big screen “twilight”, recalled some interesting anecdotes from both the preparations for the film and its shooting as it passed through the podcast “big hit show”, revealing for example that Robert Pattinson He made clear from his first audition the irrepressible attraction he felt for his partner Kristen Stewart, with whom he later began a romantic relationship.

The filmmaker said that the rehearsals for the couple’s first kiss in the film’s plot took place in her own bed and that she recorded everything with a home video camera. “There was great chemistry between them. They did the kiss scene and Rob fell to the ground in excitement. I told him to calm down a bit, “said the 66-year-old filmmaker in her conversation with the radio program.

At that time, the British actor – who is now getting ready for the premiere of the film “TheBatman”– was 21 years old and the co-star of the film -which has garnered very positive reviews with her recent role as Diana of Wales in “Spencer”– only 17. The director herself now admitted that at that time (2008) she was greatly concerned that the film couple would end up becoming a real one, due to the possible legal consequences of an affair.

“At the end of that casting Kristen said, ‘It has to be Rob.’ And it is true that his complicity was tremendous. But I also thought, ‘Oh my God, Kristen is 17, I don’t want to get in trouble. So I told Rob, ‘By the way, Kristen is 17 years old. In our country it is illegal to have sex…’ And he was like, ‘Oh, okay, whatever,'” Catherine added in her interview. It took a few years for Kristen and Rob to publicly confirm their courtship, which ended in 2013 and as a result of the controversy caused by the infidelity committed by the actress in her affair with the director Rupert Sanders, who worked with her on the set of “Snow White and the huntsman”.
