“You could just tell that they were intensely fascinated by each other. You know? I saw that right there in my own living room [at the first chemistry read,]” Hardwicke, 62, recently told Us Weekly ahead of the 10th anniversary of the fantasy film’s premiere.

“I was like, ‘Oh, my God,’” the Thirteen cowriter added. “I think when Kristen walked away I said, ‘Now, Rob, I want you to know, Kristen is underage. She is 17 and in our country, illegal.’”
