London: ‘Twilight’ director Catherine Hardwicke has revealed that Kristen Stewart felt an instant attraction towards Robert Pattinson when they met for the first time at the audition.
"I looked at a couple pictures and was like, `I`m not sure`. He had been fired from his last job, he was unemployed, he was in debt," a website quoted Catherine as saying.
"I have footage of their first meeting at my dining-room table. Kristen was like, `It`s got to be Rob!` She felt connected to him from the first moment. That electricity, or love at first sight, or whatever it is," she added.
While Stewart, 20, eventually managed to convince the director to hire Pattinson, Catherine revealed she made him promise not to get romantically involved with his co-star because she was only 17 at that time and he was four years older.
"I told him, `You`ve got to realise that Kristen is 17 years old. She`s underage. You`ve got to focus, dude, or you`re going to be arrested.` I made him swear on a stack of Bibles," she added.
