Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Were Told Not to Date

Robert Pattinson and Kristen StewartROBERT Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were originally told NOT to date — by Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke!

In a new interview with Time magazine, Hardwicke says she warned the hunky British actor against dating Stewart because she was only 18 at the time.

“After I cast him, I told Rob, don’t even think about having a romance with her . . . She’s under 18. You will be arrested.”

Hardwicke couldn’t confirm whether the pair — Rob, 23, and Kristen, 19 — hooked up while making Twilight, but had close conversations with Stewart about the situation.

“In terms of what Kristen told me directly, it didn’t happen on the first movie. Nothing crossed the line while on the first film,” she explains.

“I think it took a long time for Kristen to realize, O.K., I’ve got to give this a go and really try to be with this person.”

It was recently claimed that Pattinson hated working with Hardwicke, who was dumped for the sequel New Moon.

“Catherine and Rob didn’t exactly get along that well,” a source told FOX News. “Rob is more a method actor and likes to take time and get into his character while Catherine likes to get things moving. It caused a lot of tension between them.”

    Ok… good job leaving out the fact that Catherine Hardwicke was a friend of Kristen's boyfriend at the time. They worked together on Lords of Dogtown. THAT was another reason she warned rob not to date Kristen. and..

    I think it's interesting that now that she's out of the picture for the Twilight Saga, Catherine is trying to score some remaining fame by claiming and implying Kristen messed around with Rob on New Moon…. wonder what Kristen thinks of Hardwicke now?

    "In terms of what Kristen told me directly" …. I'm sure Kristen is just so happy whether or not it's true.

    Now I hate you, Catherine.

    Stop taking your news from Fox news. Those idiots are clearly making things up to get hits off this couple. As for Hardwicke, she needs to learn to stfu.

    oh, we twifans knew it was true, but agree catherine should have stayed quiet about it. she had riffs w/ other cast too, but that does not mean she does not get along w/ them. wish them both the best & am so excited for new moon.
