Hot indie director Drake Doremus (“Breathe In”) and producers Michael Pruss and Ann Ruark were also on hand to field questions Saturday at a Tokyo hotel.
“I can’t stand him,” Stewart joked, when asked about her feelings for her co-star. No mention was made of a sushi meal, widely reported by online gossip sites, that a fellow diner had snapped them sharing the night before.
“It’s always a weird position to be put in any film where the director chooses two people and is saying ‘Hey, potentially in this world I’m creating you two could fall in love,’” Hoult explained.
“Sometimes [this kind of situation] feels forced and tricky and awkward, but the kind of environment Drake created was straight forward and easy. Kristen is a great actress and that just makes it very relaxed and my job very easy,” Hoult added.
