Before there was Robert Pattinson there was Michael Angarano, Kristen Stewart's former longtime beau.

And while rumors have always swirled that Rob could be the reason K.Stew and Michael broke up, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke is finally spilling details on the relaysh.

So, what did she have to say about Kristen's ex boytoy, and what's up with her claim the Twilight script "sucked"?!

In an interview with Vulture, Catherine looks back at the romance between Rob and Kristen and reveals she was sad to see Kristen's relaysh with Michael end:

"He's a wonderful actor. He was in Dogtown, one of my favorites, so I felt pretty bad because I love him and they were such a great couple," admits Hardwicke.

Dare we say: What a backhanded diss to Rob! After all, the duo started dating just after Kristen and Michael split, so it's fairly obvious who's the fave of Kristen's BFs.

Another possible reason C.H. is not so fond of Rob?

She co-wrote Thirteen with Nikki Reed, who was also rumored to be involved with R.Pattz before he dated K.Stew, and Hardwicke admits she felt a bit of guilt when Kristen and Rob fell in love.

So while it seems like Catherine may still be crying over the hearts Rob and Kristen broke, we think it all worked out in the end! Nikki's happily married, Rob and Kris are still totally together, and Michael's very busy furthering his acting career.

But that's not all Cath had to spill, she was eager to dish her true feelings on the original Twilight script when she first read five different versions at the Sundance Film Festival:

"Every one of those scripts sucked," she admits. "Oh Lord, did they suck."

Uh, tell us how you really feel, C. But we doubt Catherine's bummed she stuck with the script, after all, gal signed on after a complete rewrite and the rest?

Well, that's eternally Twilight history.

So, what say you Awful readers? Could Twilight survive without a Robsten romance? What do you think of Catherine's comments?
