The Hollywood A-list pair enjoyed a tete a tete after a chance meeting at the Toronto Film Festival last week, and to say the actor was enamored with Robert Pattinson's ex would be an understatement, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
In fact, the hunky 127 Hours star was "smitten" with the Twilight star and tried to set up a dinner date. He was shot down, a source tells Radar, but not undeterred, spurred on to try and arrange a romantic rendezvous when back on home ground.
“Kristen and James bumped into each other at the Intercontinental Hotel in Toronto during the film festival and were engaged in conversation for 20 minutes,” a source revealed.
“There was a lot of flirting and Kristen was overjoyed by the attention she was getting from James, who was gushing over her, saying what a great actress he thinks she is and was full of praise for her latest movie, On the Road.
“She seemed at ease in his company, and he was certainly making her laugh. She was wearing a huge grin on her face.
"At the end of their chance meeting, James took Kristen’s number and asked her out for dinner.
“Kristen initially said no, but is mulling over the idea. She knows she has to move on now following her break up with Rob.
“James definitely wants to see Kristen again, and there’s nothing better for a heartbroken girl than to be admired by a handsome man,” the source said.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Kristen is still struggling to let go of Robert – continually raiding his leftover closet at every given opportunity.
On Sunday, she was pictured leaving Toronto’s Pearson International Airport with her ex’s Baltimore Orioles baseball cap on her head.
And when she arrived at the film festival on Wednesday, Kristen was wearing his ‘Irie’ T-shirt. At this rate Robert’s going to need a new wardrobe!
A sure sign that Kristen is trying to move on with her life is her latest purchase – a $4.8 million Malibu beach house!
Public records show the actress purchased the home in the name of her mother, Jules Mann Stewart.
The contemporary 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath, 3-story, 5,800-square-foot house is surrounded by thick landscaping and features an oval-shaped guest house.
Online listings describe the home as a “radically modern glass and steel” structure with hardwood floors, frosted glass accents, minty green accent walls and poured-in-place concrete.
