Robert Pattinson Crush On Kristen Stewart Inspired Him To Audition For “Twilight”
Robert Pattinson has admitted that the only reason he auditioned for Twilight in the first place was because he had a crush on the film’s female lead, actress Kristen Stewart.
The vampire heartthrob — who is constantly battling rumors that he is dating/knocking up his on-screen co-star — says he barely knew what the Twilight book series was at the time, and he only went along to the audition so he could get up close with the real-life Kristen.
“I read the script of Twilight and I barely knew that they were books too, so I had no idea what I was letting myself in for,” Robert says. “The only reason I went to the audition was to see Kristen because I had just seen Into the Wild. Of course I had a little crush on her.”
