Are they or aren’t they? That is the question of the moment. And yes, we’re still talking about Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. The more they continue to deny their romance, the more people seem to confirm it.
The latest person to speak up about the maybe-couple is Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke. She spoke with Time magazine, and recalled what she told Rob right after he was cast as Edward Cullen. "After I cast him, I told Rob, Don't even think about having a romance with her. She's under 18. You will be arrested,” she said.
Hardwicke also says she was in close proximity to the couple during the shooting of Twilight, and never noticed anything inappropriate going on with the two of them. "I didn't have a camera in the hotel room. I cannot say," she said. "But in terms of what Kristen told me directly, it didn't happen on the first movie. Nothing crossed the line while on the first film.”
But, Catherine notes, it was a matter of time until Rob and Kristen’s friendship developed into more. Hardwick added, “I think it took a long time for Kristen to realize, O.K., I've got to give this a go and really try to be with this person."
How many more people have to come out of the woodwork to confirm this before they go public? Don’t they know they’re driving their fans crazy? Then again, it’s all a part of the publicity game!
