Catherine Hardwicke while chatting with BUSTLE about TWILIGHT, the filmmaker reveals some fun facts.
Fans likely remember the tree scene at the Cullen house. movie. It’s memorable for one particular line that Edward tells Bella :”Hold on tight, spider monkey." But speaking on the phone recently, Hardwicke explains that the quote was actually a last-minute addition to the script. “The day before, there was no line written in the script and I thought, 'You know, it might be better for Robert to have something to say to her,'" the director recalls. "So, I came up with 10 lines, I gave him 10 choices. And with ‘hold on tight spider monkey' he goes, 'I think I’ll say that one.’' When Hardwicke first heard Pattinson playing the piano, she was "blown away," she recalls, and the same went for his voice. "The first time I heard him sing, I said, ‘We have to put your song in the movie,'" the director remembers. “But he didn’t want to record, he was too embarrassed." But Hardwicke thought of the perfect solution for the actor's nerves. She brought Pattinson to a friend's recording studio in California, a tiny space where she felt the actor "wouldn't be intimidated." The session resulted in Pattinson singing two songs on the Twilight soundtrack, "Never Think" and "Let Me Sign." Hardwicke also has a particularly fond memory of filming the movie's beautiful prom scene. "It was really magical, I have to admit. All the lights out there," she recalls. "Even though it was freezing, it was super special, like you really felt like you wanted to be madly in love right that second and just dance with somebody." "I was doing something with Eli Roth... and he told me that Quentin Tarantino had done an interview and he said that he just loved Twilight because it made him feel like a 13 year old girl," Hardwicke says.

Key in its success is the casting of two appealing actors in its lead roles.
In his first official post-Twilight-craze-outing, Robert Pattinson stars as Tyler, the black sheep of a well to do family torn apart by the suicide of their eldest son, with Pattinson stuck in a permanent melancholy while sucking down a never ending amount of booze and cigarettes.
Acting on a dare (that ever cliché tool used in many romance movies), Tyler asks and goes on a date with working class college student Ally (Australian actress Emilie de Ravin). She also knows the pain of death in the family when –as a child- she witnessed the murder of her mother, a harrowing scene depicted in the film’s opening moments.
