The sparks between Suki Waterhouse and Robert Pattinson didn't take long to ignite.

In a cover interview for British Vogue's August issue — where the 32-year-old actress and singer posed with her and Pattinson's baby daughter — Waterhouse gave rare insight into her personal life, including her love story with now-fiancé Pattinson, 38.

“It was very, very intense,” she told the magazine of the Hollywood game night where she first met Pattinson in 2018. “There were lots of ‘big’ characters there, real heavy-hitters. ... Al Pacino was there. Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz were there … and, you know, everyone was reallyacting.”

“I was sure that I’d met him a long time ago, but he didn’t think that we had,” Waterhouse continued of Pattinson, adding that during the event they “started giggling at the absurdity of the whole thing” to the point where they "got told off."

"There was a director that separated us because we were laughing too much," recalled the Daisy Jones & The Six star.

Waterhouse noted that she thinks she and The Batman actor “both sort of have the same slight uncomforta -

ble-ness” that drew them together.

As for her perception of her partner now, "I think Rob’s quite funny," she told British Vogue. "I light up when I’m around him.”

While living in Los Angeles "definitely became more fun" after she met Pattinson, the couple haven't ruled out moving back to their native London. “Trust me, it’s at the forefront of our minds," Waterhouse said.

Speaking about their newest family member, whom the couple welcomed in March, Waterhouse said she and Pattinson "really planned" the pregnancy.

“One day we looked at each other and said, ‘Well, this is as ready as we’re going to be,' " the new mom recalled, joking, "I was like, ‘What can make more chaos?’ "

The Twilight alum was there for his fiancée every step of the way, though, despite being "really nervous" during the birth, "like all dads."

"But for someone who’s quite an anxious person, he’s been very calm," Waterhouse added. She also said Pattinson is "the dad I could have hoped for," telling the outlet, "I mean a dad and his daughter? It’s an actual love story.”
