This love is for 'reel'
Rumours are rife but Kristen Stewart denies any off-camera liaison with dashing Robert Pattinson
In a round-table interview with The New Paper at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills last month, Stewart's green eyes lit up when questions shifted to her dreamy co-star.
The 18-year-old actress said with a laugh: 'The chemistry between us was sort of an instant thing. We both loved the story equally as much. And the kissing scene was very aggressive. It was entirely animalistic.'And she joked: 'Yeah, he did propose to me, but I didn't really make a big deal of it because we had work to do and we didn't want it to become an issue.'
'I like the meadow scene, where it all comes out. It's like the most desperately honest point in the movie.
'That's the first point in the movie where you can breathe again, and breathe through the disparity and honesty, and know that it's okay, and that's exactly what you should be doing.
'It's very beautiful.'
According to Hardwicke, it is Stewart's stubborn demand for perfection that makes her such a great actress.
'I think that's why she's good, because she wanted to make it real. She wanted to get it right,' Hardwicke told The New Paper in a separate interview.
And Pattinson appreciates Stewart's dedication.
'I went nuts over every single line. I spent every single night dissecting my lines, I even dissected Kristen's lines,' the 22-year-old actor said.
According to him, no one else wanted to do this, but Kristen stood by him.
Still, Stewart's demand for honesty and truth can be difficult when filming.
'It's hard when you have cameras rolling and like 150 people there and they want to rewrite the lines again,' laughed Hardwicke, who also had to deal with Pattinson's obsessive drive for perfection.
Will the new director - Chris Weitz who did The Golden Compass - be able to handle Stewart's strong personality?
Yes, but only if he gains her respect first.
Said Stewart: 'It's good when you're working with a director who you really feel puts in the work, because if they don't, you don't trust them.
'So yeah, I have authority issues but typically I work with people that have conviction, who inspire, who are smarter than me. They manage to pull great work out from me.'
