Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson is being romantically linked with Canadian actress Sarah Gadon, on the set of their new film, Maps To The Stars.

According to OK! Magazine, the 26-year-old actress, who was also seen with Pattinson in the David Cronenberg-directed film Cosmopolis, are bonding well.

"There's a real spark between them. And they've already been spending time together when filming ends for the day," an insider revealed.

"They have become very close. When there's a break in filming, they'll often sit on their own and chat. Sarah's really into the arts and literature, which Rob loves. And they even talk about English soccer together because she watches games on TV. They have a lot in common," the source added.

Pattinson had ended his relationship with Twilight co-star and girlfriend Kristen Stewart, after it was confirmed that she cheated on the Remember Me actor with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

"It's sexual tension and she seems to be wooing him by treating him mean… Rob's having a lot of fun with Sarah. She's like a breath of fresh air after Kristen and they look like a really cute couple together."

In the film, the 27-year-old actor plays the role of Jerome, a limousine driver and aspiring actor and will be seen opposite Australian actress Mia Wasikowska.

Since Pattinson's break-up with Stewart, he has been romantically linked with many glamorous actresses and models. He was also linked to Australian singer Sia, after being spotted out together frequently. The two were recently seen with three other friends at Soho House in Los Angeles, California. However the 37-year-old songwriter is said to be just friends with Pattinson.

"[There's] definitely nothing romantic," a source told E! News.

"[Robert] was equally engaged in a conversation with the entire group of people," the insider added, "Nothing about Rob and Sia came across as romantic."
