All we want to know about is whether Rob is really dating his co-star Kristen Stewart. There’s been much fuel to the fire, with even on-set sources alluding to their relationship.
Catherine Hardwicke said, "What Rob and Kristen had is a multitude of feelings for each other. Complex feelings for each other. It was what we needed. Complex, intense fascination."
Writer Evgenia Peretz also added to the hype, saying, "It's very likely that their off-screen relationship mirrored their on-screen one: an intense attraction that couldn't be realized. During the shoot, Stewart was with her long-term boyfriend, actor Michael Angarano."
"She and Pattinson have mastered the not-touching thing. She even throws the crowd a few curveballs by over-flirting with muscle-bound Taylor Lautner."
But Rob is quick to set the record straight. He tells Vanity Fair, “[We’re] good friends. I think she’s the best young actress around. She’s influenced how I’ve done all the ‘Twilight’ stuff. It’s quite nice to have someone who is genuinely indifferent to the whole spectacle of everything.”
Rob continues, "It doesn't make any difference what you say [to the tabloids]. I've literally been across the country [from Kristen], and it’s like 'Oh, they were on secret dates!' It's like 'Where? I can't get out of my hotel room!'"
Guess we’ll have to settle. At least we’ll always have Edward and Bella! For the full VF article, check out Popeater.com.
