Larry Carrol from MTV recalls how it was like to interview Rob and Kristen on the set of Twilight (remember TWILIGHT TUESDAYS?!):
“Yeah, the chemistry was undeniable. I remember each had a book on their chairs, next to each other. RPattz read Vonnegut. I was on set for 2 full days, and the only time they weren’t together was when I did my 1-on-1 with Rob. They were VERY into building chemistry, barely knew each other then. To play such intimate characters for several movies .they knew they had a lot of work to do. Both of them take acting very seriously, even then when relatively young. They’d share books watch movies together, hit local clubs with other actors, etc. As soon as Catherine called “Cut!” they’d almost always head off together.
I’ve interviewed each dozens of times, most recently for XBox at the BD1 premiere. So glad they’ve come so far. Would be very cool, since I unearthed that tidbit. But I know a lot of people whose heads would explode from the sexiness! Just KStew there, missed Rob. If you have XBox, keep your eye on the movie coverage there – I produce much of that yumminess.
Was a lot easier in those day. I was the only one who cared. I remember explaining to other reporters what “Twilight” was… EW spelled Stephenie’s name wrong, on set a lot of people thought the film would go straight-to-video. When I asked to visit the set….they were kinda shocked. Said “how many days do you want to come up for?” Gave me full access, no embargo. That’s extremely rare. I’d say they were equal. Although KStew definitely seemed to take the lead most of the time. She was the more experienced actor.”
