Spies caught the "Twilight Saga: New Moon" co-stars getting cozy on an intimate date at hip L.A. eatery Cecconi's following the awards show. The pair - who so far have claimed to be just friends - looked anything but as they held hands throughout the meal.
While Stewart has been dating fellow actor Michael Arangano for the past four years, her real-life boyfriend was nowhere to be seen as she chatted quietly with Pattinson. After the dinner, which ended around 11 p.m., a police escort brought the pair back to their West Hollywood hotel. Stewart, who at 19 is underage, stayed in, but man-of-the-hour Pattinson left his crush and headed to a late-night fete at Guy's.
Says an insider of the stars' budding relationship: "Robert is obsessed with Kristen and has been for a while. He likes that she's a cool, down-to-earth girl. Kristen never saw Rob as anything but a friend, but that seems to be changing."
One reason for Stewart's new interest in her co-star? He's been bulking up his already enviable bod.
"Taylor [Lautner] been training Rob a lot, and that's why he's got such ripped abs," "New Moon" co-star Kellan Lutz told The News' Nancy Dillon. "Rob's been working hard. He's trying to be the best Edward [Pattinson's character in the films] he can be."
Stewart and Pattinson also share a love of music. They both play the guitar, with Pattinson even contributing a song to the "Twilight" soundtrack.
Peter Facinelli, who plays Pattinson's vampire dad in the "Twilight" series, told us: "I love to hear Rob sing. He's got an insanely good voice. Sometimes we all get together and he gets on the guitar and starts playing and singing. He writes his own material."
He added, "Kristen has taken up the guitar for the movie she's doing [on Joan Jett]. Everyone's been carrying a guitar around."
What better way for Rob to profess his adoration for Kristen than a love song?
