Hey, want a fact that (might) shake you to your core? The first Twilight movie came out 12 years ago today!
To celebrate the anniversary, director Catherine Hardwicke and actor Nikki Reed (aka Rosalie Hale) sat down with Insider to talk about one of the most iconic scenes in all of modern cinema: the Twilight baseball scene.
One of the things you might remember about this scene is the way the Cullens move when they're playing baseball.
According to Nikki, part of the reason for the way the vampires move in this "choreographed dance" is a very special movement class.
The actor said that they took a "cat movement class so that we could move our bodies in a way that felt catlike."
I don't know about you, but I am having the time of my life picturing this class.
BUT THIS IS NOT THE ONLY REFERENCE TO CATS IN THIS SCENE. At one point, Carlisle tells Rosalie, "Nice kitty" after she has a stare-down with Bella — which was apparently the idea of actor Peter Facinelli, who played Carlisle.
Look, all I'm saying is...Twilight x Cats???
In short, according to director Catherine, learning to play baseball "was a really good bonding experience for all the vampires" — so isn't that nice?
