Twilight fans, brace yourselves for a dose of nostalgia! Director Catherine Hardwicke, known for helming the iconic Twilight film, shared an exciting revelation on Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast about an unexpected reunion involving Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.
During the podcast, Hardwicke shared a surprising birthday bash she attended earlier this year. “Strangely enough, I ended up, I went to Rob’s birthday party recently,” she divulged. “I kinda crashed with my friend Toni Collette, [who] had just done a movie with him. And so Rob was like, ‘Yeah! Bring Catherine.'”
Stewart, who shared the screen with Pattinson in the Twilight series, also joined the celebration, turning it into an impromptu reunion. Hardwicke recalled the surprise moment when Stewart arrived at the party, expressing how they all hugged each other in disbelief at the unexpected gathering.
“When Kristen walked into Rob’s birthday, she’s like, ‘Catherine? Rob’s birthday? What’s going on?'” revealed Hardwicke. “And she goes, ‘Well, I crashed it too.'”
Despite the unexpected guests, Pattinson graciously welcomed them, earning praise from Hardwicke as a “lovely person.”
Stewart and Pattinson shared an on-screen romance that transcended into real life during the filming of the Twilight saga, dating from 2009 to 2013. Hardwicke reminisced about witnessing their instantaneous chemistry during the audition process, recalling the sparks flying between the two actors.
In other Pattinson-related news, his girlfriend Suki Waterhouse recently surprised fans at the Corona Capital Music Festival in Mexico by revealing her pregnancy on stage.
