Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been linked together for years. But all Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart dating stories had been denied or disproved so far. The Twilight pair has been among the most analyzed couples in entertainment despite not being a couple. Yet the Twilight fanatics and the tabloids may have now finally gotten their wish. This latest Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart dating story could be the real thing this time, especially since Pattinson himself appeared to have confirmed it.
The real life Edward Cullen and Bella Swan were among those at the BAFTAs on Sunday night. They had already made headlines with their new hairstyles – especially Pattinson’s – but the real gossip began when they left the after party together. Now according to Radar Online and The Sun, it was exactly what it looked like.
According to The Sun, the Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart relationship was confirmed by Pattinson himself. He reportedly claimed that they can’t appear together at the same time, due to their passionate Twilight fans, but they are together. At the BAFTAs, they had planned to walk down the red carpet together but instead had to arrive separately to avoid attention.
Many Twilight fans have waited for this official confirmation for some time – although they may be the reason it hasn’t happened sooner. Pattinson and Stewart have been linked together ever since they signed onto The Twilight Saga, despite dating others in the last few years. But their fanbase – especially Team Edward – seems to have gotten their wish now.
The timing of the Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart revelations is a bit suspect, though. Fittingly, this came when both stars have solo movies about to come out. Pattinson’s Rescue Me comes out on March 12 – which Stewart has already praised – and Stewart’s The Runaways has a spring release.
But of course, the real publicity will come from Eclipse once the third Twilight film is released in the summer. Images from a big Bella/Edward makeout scene have already leaked, and they are sure to get more physical when Breaking Dawn is filmed. For the sake of the series, they will at least need to be on good terms when that finale is filmed – either in one or two parts.
Fans have waited for a Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart real life pairing for a while. But now that they might have gotten what they wanted, they must hope it isn’t a case of “Be careful what you wish for.”
The two idols are clearly feeling the pressure already, so if devotees want to really see them together in public, they might want to back off a tiny bit.
