Kristen Stewart Reveals How She Fell In Love With Robert Pattinson At First 'Twilight' Audition

When you spot a good vampire, you just know!

If you're a fan of the Twilight saga, then you probably know that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's on-screen chemistry as Bella Swan and Edward Cullen was simply undeniable. But what you might not know is that their real-life love story began to bloom right from their very first Twilight audition.

The audition room was filled with hopeful actors vying for the iconic roles of Bella and Edward. Among them were Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, two young talents who were about to embark on a journey that would forever change their lives.

From the very beginning, Twilight's director Catherine Hardwicke understood that casting was the toughest part so far. While teenager Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) was chosen as soon as fans expected, matching the actor to play vampire Edward Cullen was really a difficult decision.

In an interview with The New Yorker magazine, Stewart revealed that Hardwicke had the pair read lines and make out with each other at his Los Angeles home so she could test the partner, Robert Pattinson.

Indeed, Kristen wanted somebody that didn't seem like a real person. "Who is that going to be? This vampire has lived for 90-something years. He's ethereal, he's special, he's unique, he's internal, he's brooding, he's everything, you know, iconic," she explained. But things didn't happen as she expected. Catherine detailed the first auction Robert and Kristen had together, in the bedroom of her house.

"They did the kissing scene and he fell off and landed right there on this floor," she remembered. "Rob was so into it, he fell off the bed. I'm like, ‘Dude, calm down.' And I'm in there filming with my little video camera, you know, whatever."

During his audition, he brought Edward to life with a captivating mix of brooding intensity and undeniable charm. His portrayal was so compelling that it caught Kristen's attention, and it was the beginning of something special.

At the end of the audition, Catherine recalled Kristen pushing for Rob to take part in the movie project. "I could tell they had a lot of chemistry," she told. "And I thought, ‘Oh my god, Kristen was 17, I don't want to get in some illegal thing.' So I remember I told Rob, ‘By the way, Kristen is 17. In our country, it's illegal for them to have sexual relations.' And he's like, ‘Oh, OK, whatever.'" At the time, Robert was 21


#4. A romantic relationship on-screen and off-screen

Off-screen, Kristen and Robert found themselves drawn to each other, starting as friends and later blossoming into something deeper. Their shared passion for their craft and their ability to understand each other's experiences in the Entertainment industry created a strong bond that went beyond the silver screen. Throughout the filming of the Twilight saga, their connection only grew stronger, and fans couldn't help but notice the genuine affection between them during interviews and red-carpet events.

The paparazzi caught glimpses of their secret outings and romantic escapades, sparking endless speculation about their relationship. However, like any true love story, Kristen and Robert faced their fair share of challenges. The intense media attention and constant public scrutiny put a strain on their relationship, leading to some ups and downs. Despite the hurdles, they managed to weather the storm, proving that their love was no mere on-screen illusion. But even after their breakup, they remained respectful of each other, never speaking ill of their time together.

After all, who wouldn't want to believe in a love that started with an audition and forever captured our imaginations?
