From OK! Magazine
Who hears more secrets than a hairstylist? OK! got an exclusive scoop from the creator of Robert Pattinson’s sigh-worthy Twilight hair from celebrity hairstylist Stuart Gavert of Gavert Atelier in Beverly Hills. Stuart sat down with OK! and shared the secrets that only a hairstylist hears — about how Rob and Kristen Stewart connected on the set of Twilight.
Stuart just might be responsible for creating the look that helped spark an obsession — his sexy styling of Robert’s hair to get that tousled Edward Cullen look has driven so many girls wild that men were coming into his salon asking for the “Edward” to see if it could give them the same effect.
But Stuart isn’t one to accept much responsibility for turning Rob into a sex symbol, giving most of the credit to Rob himself.
“When you meet Rob in person, he’s very English, and he’s obviously good-looking and all of that,” explains Stuart. “But something happens. There are just people who the camera loves. You get him in front of that camera with the makeup, and he was just gorgeous.”
Stuart had just as many nice things to say about Kristen, revealing, “Kristen is the girl-next-door. She has been acting since she was three or four. She is extremely unaffected, very down-to-earth, and she has her own style. She’s just that kind of an actress.
Stuart’s on-the-set stylist spilled all the things she saw about how the couple was behind-the-scenes.
“She said that Rob is much more of a method actor [than Kristen]. He would really have to prepare himself,” recounts Stuart. “For her, she is playing this young girl around her age at the time. She is falling in love with a beautiful guy — that’s not that hard to act! But he’s playing a vampire who is seeing her as prey. He’s looking at her throat, looking at her blood vessels, but at the same time he is falling in love with her, which created a lot of tension in his character.”
Though they have different styles of acting, their differences made their attraction for each other that much greater.
“I think they just have incredibly chemistry. Just the way they look at each other, and the intensity that’s there,” says Stuart.
As for their romance, Stuart has his own theory on why Kristen fell so hard for Rob.
“Shyness is a very fetching quality. I mean he’s kind of a shy person, and that make people want to know more. He’s obviously good-looking. He can turn the charm on and off. He’s an actor. That’s what you do.”
We know Rob can work the charm on-screen, but it’s the off-screen charm that Kristen likes that we want to experience for ourselves!
