Robert Pattinson jokes that Kristen Stewart is pregnant

By Kim Palacios

It was a joke, and one that has already set the internet ablaze following multiple fan reports that English actor Robert Pattinson quipped that Kristen Stewart was “pregnant” during today’s taping of The Oprah Show. The two appeared on Oprah’s set in Chicago with Taylor Lautner to film an interview for a 5/13 air date that will promote “Eclipse” and the Twilight franchise.

Rob’s comment was reportedly a deflective response to Oprah’s inquiry as to whether he and his leading lady were a couple. When asked whether they were together, Rob quipped that Kristen was pregnant, at which point Kristen shot back that it was Rob who was having the baby.

It wasn’t the first time the couple has been asked about their status, though Rob is quoted as having admitted to as much once or twice in the past. On the whole, both Rob and Kristen have avoided questions about their relationship, with Kristen going so far as to insinuate that she does not comment because any answer she might give is unlikely to curtail media speculation.

In 2008 and 2009, Summit was believed to be the culprit for the actors’ inability to speak candidly of their status. The prevalent logic was that they frowned upon confirmation of any real-life romance between Rob and Kristen, which could diminish from the on-screen love triangle between Edward, Bella, and Jacob.

Whether they are together or not, the message is clear—they’re back to not wanting to comment. After all, anything admitted publicly and jointly on a show with as much credibility as Oprah’s is as good as writing the news in the sky.

    i know everyone believes they’re together but their constant denials should be merited. i personally dont think they’re together and this report has kind of confirmed it.

    Think about what they said. Rob said kristen was pregnant. Is this true? No.
    Kristen said rob was having the baby. Is it true? no.

    They’re saying that in the past rumours have been false. Therefore they are indirectly denying the rumours. They don’t want to give the power of their personal lives to the media by directly denying it.

    Then again i change my mind often about Robsten and whether it exists. I love their chemistry and cant wait to see them together on Oprah

    At risk of exposing my geek, I can tell you Pattinson and Stewart are sucessfully navigating what Star Trek’s Roddenberry called the Kobayashi Maru. It’s the ultimate no win situation that Captain Kirk aced.

    It’s artful, kind and sane of them to navigate this situation so well. They’re allowing people’s private projections to continue – no matter what the individual audience projection is. Everybody wins. Whether you’re yes, no or maybe. It’s a private matter and they’ve been clear that the public status aspect confirming or denying it is debasing.

    It’s like looking at a painting. A canvas you’re able to explore yourself with and take your personal meaning from. It’s a reflection of you. I like gazing at it and I like who I am when I do. Mine vision is cubist and softly angular. A little tragic, a little romantic – but tempered with whimsy and kaleidoscopic hope and very inspiring.

    The reality is you’re invited into their moments on-screen and in public appearances. At some point, you may want to get comfortable with that concept? I’m grateful to have those moments and I thank them. Encore!

    It’s easy to say they aren’t together, actually.. I joke with my friends about stuff like that, who doesn’t? It’s funny, especially when you know it’s not true and other people are trying to say it is. I mean who hasn’t heard a ridiculous rumor about themselves and joked with their friends about how stupid it was? It’s a great way to handle things, especially when you’re in Hollywood and your every move is scrutinized.. This doesn’t mean they’re together by any means. And as far as that being their way of “flirting,” have you seen her with Taylor? She’s exactly the same with him. Not to mention the fact that this same speculation went on last year.. then pictures came up in May of Kristen and Michael, her long time boyfriend. Who’s to say she’s not still with him? And more than that, what difference does it make? It’s their lives.. The speculation is stupid.. if they’re together, they’re together. If they’re not, they’re not. They don’t have to tell you about it, they do have a right to privacy. Stop reading so much into everything.

    I think spending New Years Eve/day together on the Isle of Wight and Kristen flying all the way to Budapest to spend her 20th BDay with Rob, when she could’ve spent it with her family, shows that they’re more than just friends. I personally think that they don’t comment on their relationship is because they shouldn’t have to, it’s their personal life. Also, being as there’s so many crazy rumours flying around about them, imagine what it would be like i they made a big announcement that they are together.

    How could Oprah have even been allowed to ask the question. Aren’t interviewers told prior what they can and cannot ask? I think it was a flirty tease, private joke. Wow this is going to be a good one with the rag/blog sites HA. WISH IT WAS TRUE

    They are dating. If they weren’t dating then they would say “we’re just friends. “They are clearly deflecting the question because they don’t want to share their relationship with the public.

    I think they are! Either that or “friends with benefits” for sure.
    I mean why would she travel thousands of miles on her birthday to see “just a friend”?! She had tons of friends in LA where she was. Why didn’t she see her other Twi friends in other cities on her birthday?! Then why go with your just friend to the Isle of Wright by his parents home for vacation?! Like she couldn’t do it with her other Twilight cast friends?! Oh, cause she’s not dating them!!
    Then the whole “their only doing it to promote the movies” thing…
    why would the million dollar Twilight movies need help being promoted?!?! Plus that is messed up to think they would let the movie company “play” with their love lives like that!
    Someone as hot as Rob should be seen mingling with hot models, and dating like crazy. Leo did it, and so did other “heart throb actors” Rob isn’t doing it cause he already is dating someone!
    At least he wants someone like Kristen, and not some double D, skinny miss Victoria Secret model.

    I agree with Melissa. A guy is not going to see a girl for her entire birthday weekend and vice versa (the girl is not going to fly that far and spend her whole birthday with a guy) if they are not seeing each other. Its refreshing to see a guy like a girl for who she is and not simply her looks, body, etc. Kristen is a very pretty girl, but shes also intelligent and musically oriented. Gives hope to the quiet, tomboyish girl who reads too much and likes to play piano or guitar. They are cute and sweet, and if they want to keep it private, their real fans will respect that.

    It’s a joke people. They are together. I would only go all the way to Budapest to spend my birthday with someone that is more than just a friend. But Rob jokes about alot of things and people blow it up. Like his “allergy” remark was a JOKE.

    I know all the rob lovers really want him to be single and not with Kristen, I can tell you I have seen them together and they are not just friends!! I was in NYC during the remember me premiere and I saw the two of them out for dinner with friends and they were all cuddled up to each other and very affectionate with each other from what I saw. and it was a lot of people around that witnessed them as well. they pay to make sure they are not photgraphed when are out publicly and people if paid will do what ever you ask. when they were not dating FOR REAL, when kristen was with someone else, they both said they were not dating. Rob refused to answer the question when he was on letterman and in several recent interviews he has stated that if he had a relationship with kristen he would rather not say. and kristen as well would state they were friends and now she is saying she as well don’t want to say. no body travels for christmas, new years and stay with them till feb. SAME HOTEL, SAME ROOM and attend someone else’s premiere and travels to budapest to be with someone else on their b-day while filming a movie and not be seen with any other guy/girl just those two unless it was more to it. they are together and have been living together since 2009 shooting the twilight films he films movies and upon return to LA is seen going or leaving kristen’s place and for birthdays she is with his family and spends time with his family when they are around or if she is in London?? they are def. together!! ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS!!

    Yeah, if Rob and Kristen aren’t dating each other then who are they dating? They’re never seen with anyone else but each other for like a whole year! I know some girls would like to think he’s single and available, but c’mon, read the clues! This one isn’t hard to figure out. A picture is worth a thousand words!

    i think they are something more then just friends. i have many guys friends, but i would not fly many hours across the world just to spend the weekend with them. but i do think they shouldn’t have to tell anyone what they are doing or not in their private lives.

    Get a clue people! And I don’t mean that in a nasty way but honestly! Neither one of them has been seen with anyone else in over a year now! They started hanging together outside of work (alone) pretty quickly after her boyfriend disappeared from the scene. They travel halfway around the world to spend time with each other on holidays & special occasions. And if that isn’t enough for you just open your eyes & see the way they look at each other. A blind person should be able to see it. They don’t have to say a word.

    Just wish them the very best always. Two more beautiful people inside and out you could not wish to be together. So gracious under such immense pressure at such a young age. So many other young Hollywood types could take a good look at them and change their attitudes. Hope they get some much needed downtime between their movies/premieres. Happy birthday, Rob and hope you get to enjoy it peacefully with Kristen……
