Los Angeles: 'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart says she knew Julianne Moore way before they filmed their new indie drama 'Still Alice'.
Stewart said she was very young when Moore's husband Bart Freundlich directed her in a 2004 crime comedy 'Catch The Kid', reported E!Online.
"I've known her for a number of years (because) I worked with her husband (Bart Freundlich) on a movie that I did when I was really little called 'Catch That Kid'," she said.
In 'Still Alice', Stewart, 24, plays the daughter of a woman with Alzheimer's, played by Moore. "Everyone always says that you want to work with people that you truly have a connection with, but it doesn't always happen.
"That's the kind of stuff that I really go after when I know that I could play her daughter because it's not a stretch. It's something that is so very much in us. The story is powerful and sad and scary, so I was very comfortable jumping into that with her."
