Catherine Hardwicke, Director of The Twilight Saga has revealed details about Robert Pattinson‘s audition for the role that he eventually ended up being cast in: Edward Cullen.
The Origin Of 'THE KISS'
The Twilight Saga, based on Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling vampire novel series of the same name, was about a seventeen-year-old girl Isabella Swan who falls in love with a 108-year-old vampire Edward Cullen.
The Best Is In Next Slide
She said, “Rob and Kristen did the audition right here on the bed. They did the kissing scene and he fell off and landed right there on this floor. [Rob] walked in and he had his hair dyed black for some play, with these wacky bangs. He was a bit out of shape. His shirt was just all messy, and I’m like, ‘Oh, okay. Okay, let’s see how this goes.’”
Fell Off The Bed While Kissing
She also recalled warning Pattinson about Stewart’s age. “I could tell they had a lot of chemistry, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’ I thought, Kristen was 17. I don’t want to get in some illegal things. So I remember I told Rob, ‘By the way, Kristen is 17. In our country, it’s illegal to have a sexual…’ And he’s like, ‘Oh, okay, whatever.’”
Here Goes The Warning
Stewart and Pattinson also dated each other from 2009 to 2013. After nearly four years of dating, the duo called it quits after the Personal Shopper star sparked cheating rumors with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Upon the news of Pattinson being cast as Batman, Kristen commented “I feel like he’s the only guy that could play that part. I’m very, very happy about that. I heard that and I was like, ‘Oh man!’ It’s awesome.” He has the perfect cheekbones to play the role of iconic DC superhero.
