Sofia was in the running for director of Breaking Dawn, but the seat was given to Bill Condon. Still, Sofia is very much a fan of the films.

As director of Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation and the upcoming Somewhere, Sofia knows a good love story when she sees one!

"I just love that it's so romantic," Sofia told MTV News. "I'm always a sucker for a love story and also to do something for teenagers, because I feel like, why not have beautiful cinematography and all these things in a kid movie? Usually it looks like it's not crafted very sophisticated, and I feel like it'd be nice to bring that kind of style into a younger film."

Although Sofia won't be biting into Breaking Dawn, she did say she considered it.

"Yeah, yeah, I talked to them about that," Sofia explained. "I was interested in doing something but I didn't end up doing it. But I love... I'm impressed by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison pulling it off in that whole story. And my friend's kids love the story so much that I thought it would be fun to make something that they love so much."

It's nice to hear the Twilight films get the love they deserve!
