During the podcast, Catherine revealed that she still has the same bed that Kristen and Rob made out on for their audition, which happened at her home.

“This is my bedroom, still my bedroom, still the same bed,” she shared. “And Rob and Kristen did the audition right here on the bed. They did the kissing scene and he fell off and landed right there on this floor.”

Catherine remembered that Rob “walked in and he had his hair was died black for some play, with these wacky bangs. He was a bit out of shape. His shirt was just all messy, and I’m like, ‘Ooh, okay. Okay, let’s see how this goes.’”

“Rob and Kristen auditioned on my bed, the kissing scene, Rob was so into it he fell off the bed. I’m like, ‘Dude, calm down,’” she recalled. “And I’m in there filming with my little video camera, whatever.”

She went on, remembering that Kristen was in agreement that Edward had to be played by Rob.

“I could tell they had a lot of chemistry, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God,’” she said. “I thought, Kristen was 17. I don’t want to get in some illegal things. So I remember I told Rob, ‘By the way, Kristen is 17. In our country, it’s illegal to have a sexual…’ And he’s like, ‘Oh, okay, whatever.’”

In another episode on the podcast, details about the very first script for Twilight were revealed.
