It was love at first sight for Kristen Stewart when she set eyes on Robert Pattinson, according to Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke.
“She felt connected to him from the first moment. That electricity, or love at first sight, or whatever it is,” Hardwicke tells Newsweek of the couple, who are now filming Breaking Dawn in Vancouver.
Stewart met Pattinson in Hardwicke’s kitchen in Malibu, Calif. After they kissed for the first time in the audition (on the director’s bed!), Stewart helped Pattinson get the job. “Kristen was like, ‘It’s got to be Rob!’ ” Hardwicke recalls.
