“Twilight” Director, Catherine Hardwicke, Shares Behind-the-Scenes Secrets

At the Official Twilight Convention in Parsippany, New Jersey, “Twilight” Director, Catherine Hardwicke, gave away the following behind-the-scenes secrets about Rob.

Another thing fans didn’t see was a hairy Robert Pattinson. Hardwicke originally envisioned Bella’s bloodsucking boyfriend Edward with long hair. “I thought it would be cool if Rob had long, romantic hair,” she said. “So we put extensions on Rob and he just hated it. He sat there in the chair for eight hours and was like, ‘No.’ ”


Hardwicke also had Pattinson style secrets to share from off the set. According to the director, Pattinson was sporting a not-so-fresh shirt at the Teen Choice Awards. “I was sitting on the couch next to Rob and he was telling me, ‘I didn’t know what to wear. I didn’t have anything clean, so my friend wore this shirt last night and did a performance.’ So his buddy did a whole performance in this shirt and Rob found it on the floor and thought it was the cleanest shirt he had, so he wore it to the awards.”

Additionally, The Twilight Lexicon tweeted from the convention and adds more secrets Hardwicke gave away.

- Rob recorded let me sign while watching the cut of the scene and pegged the song to what he was seeing on screen emotionally


- At Robs audition he still had Dali hair, a stained tee shirt and wasn’t toned. Studio said are you sure you can make this guy look good


- Rob originally saw that fans hated him as a casting choice and Catherine told him hang in there and trust me and said stay offline. Rob said my mother sent it to me. Catherine said stop opening emails from your mother
