Catherine Hardwicke & Jackson Rathbone Flew to PA to convince Kristen Stewart to be Bella Swan

Did you know Catherine flew to Kristen to talk her into Twilight? I didn't!!! According to, the Hardwicke flew to find her Bella.

Stewart was in Pittsburgh working on the indie film "Adventureland" when she first got wind of "Twilight." At the time, she says, she didn't really have "enough room in my head" to even consider a
project of that magnitude. Still, she was up for the audition and
recalls being thrilled when director Catherine Hardwicke and actor
Jackson Rathbone flew to Pittsburgh to meet with her. "We worked
together for four hours," Stewart says. "And by the end of it, we
didn't want to stop talking about it, and Catherine was like,
'Okay, well, I think you should do this. I'm gonna get on a plane
now, but hopefully we can continue this discussion later.' I was
like, 'Uh, does that mean…' I couldn't believe it."

Like Scott, Hardwicke was charmed by Stewart's brief "Into the
Wild" performance. "I felt her vulnerability and yearning leap off
the screen when she sat on that bed in the trailer, trying to
seduce Emile [Hirsch]," Hardwicke recalls. "Kristen has to feel
everything—to connect, to make it her own. She is intense and
powerful and athletically gifted. Bella Swan is clumsy. Kristen had
to be the most awkward volleyball player in 'Twilight,' but in
reality she's a superstar."
