Pattinson told Seacrest that he has been living in Los Angeles for about nine years, recalling the first time the two met: “I met you when I literally had first moved there. So that was the first time I met you I think.”

“When I met you I was still living in the Oakwood apartments,” Pattinson recalled. The radio host explained that the apartments are known to be temporary housing in Burbank, California, for people pursuing Hollywood acting careers.

“I was with Screech, Dustin Diamond. I loved it. I really miss it,” Pattinson, 31, said with a laugh. “Dustin was the first person to introduce me to Hot Pockets!” the Water for Elephants star added about the microwaveable sandwiches.

Pattinson wasn’t the only one with a Saved by the Bell connection since Seacrest revealed that he also used to live close to one of the cast members when he first moved to L.A.

“We may have talked about it but when I first moved here, I lived in the apartments just down the street from the Oakwoods and guess who lived across the street from me?” Seacrest asked. “Mario Lopez! Slater! So all of us start with the ‘Saved by the Bell’ cast and we try and grow from there.”

According to the Oakwood apartments website, other celebrities who have lived in the housing community are Jennifer Love Hewitt, Christina Ricci, Kirstin Dunst, Jessica Biel and Neil Patrick Harris.
