Twilight Director to Robert Pattinson: Don't Date Kristen Stewart!

by at . Comments

If Catherine Hardwicke had her way, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might never have gotten together. For real!

While it's nearly impossible now to imagine R. Patt without his K. Stew - just watch this adorable video of Robsten cuddling and kissing! - the Twilight director tells Elle Magazine that she noticed chemistry right away between the potential co-stars... and feared its consequences.

"Rob and Kristen sat down at the table and did the biology scene," Hardwicke said of Pattinson's audition. "I felt the sparks. I could see the attraction. Kristen was very vocal - she knew she had the strongest connection with Rob. I said, 'Let me have a day to see if it translates to the screen.'"

We all know it did, of course. But Robert was 21 at the time and Kristen only 17, which led Hardwicke to warn her handsome leading man: 'She's underage, don't even think about it! It's a law in our country.'"

Fortunately, Pattinson and Stewart evaded the police until the latter turned 18 and have been happily dating ever since.
