Are they together or not? "Twilight" stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart deny the relationship, but numerous blogs and magazines have reports of spies spotting them getting cozy around town.


"Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke had to find out if Robert Pattinson would have chemistry with Kristen Stewart when she was casting the first movie in Stephenie Meyer's vampire franchise – so she brought them to her own bedroom.

In an exclusive advance clip obtained by Access Hollywood from MTV's "Love Bites" special on the "Twilight Saga" stars, which airs Monday at 10PM on the network, Catherine showed the cameras where Rob began the audition process – by kissing Kristen!

"This is the place where we had the first kiss from Rob and Kristen," she said of her own plainly covered bed, located in a small, sunlit room at her Venice, Calif., home. "We did the audition to see if these two would have chemistry – to see if their kiss would be exciting and cool."

Though the pair went on to make a sizzling on-screen couple, Catherine added that things were awkward at first. "I'm like, 'OK, I know you guys just met and everything, but… you're really gonna kiss!'" Catherine laughed.
