Interview with The Hollywood Reporter:

Twilight worked with its actors when they were very young. What is it like to see these actors in their careers now?

Kristen and Rob were indie kids when we started, and they were like me: They didn’t realize how big the film was going to be. And I remember one day where Kristen turned to me and said, “I think this is going to change my life.” I could see this 18-year-old looking at a whole new world. Within a year, they were both making $30 million. But they still are indie kids, they’re still doing individual projects, and I think Twilight gave them the means to now be a part of any project they want to do.
