Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart relationship status guessing games are over

Robert Pattinson Kristen Stewart

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: It’s been three solid years that Twilight fans and gossip-mongers everywhere have guessed at whether Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are really a couple. Yet, never have fans been closer to an answer than they are right now. The wrap of “Breaking Dawn” has created a simple circumstance that will give answers to the logical observer: with few joint professional obligations remaining, reports of romantic sightings may begin to hold more weight.

Think about it. Though the pair is constantly spied by the paparrazi, there have often been professional reasons for the two to be together. Sightings were inevitable given months of shooting, promotion, and an acknowledged friendship. Though certain publications took liberties in interpreting these sightings to define the pair’s relationship, there have been few credible reports to definitively confirm the pair’s status.

Yet, times have changed. “Breaking Dawn” has finished filming and promo for the fourth film won’t begin until the fall. Without professional reason to be in the same place at the same time, over the next few months, evidence that the pair is still spending a lot of time together could be the first truly credible clue about their status.

    What tree have you been living under? There are more sightings of them together away from movie sets & award shows/red carpet premieres doing the very simple mundane things most nonfamous couples do together. They are the most famous couple in the world yet they shun publicity and wish to be left alone to live their lives as nonHollywood as possible.

    i know. Kristen went to Budapest to visit Rob on the set of his non-Twilight movie to spend her birthday with him.
    I have a best friend that is a girl but i would not travel for over 15 hours, cross the ocean from LA to HUNGARY to visit HER when SHE is working to spend MY birthday with her.I love her but not that much. haha

    OMG. Thank you Kim for my Sunday morning laugh! LOL. Yeah there was a promo reason for them to be making out in the streets of Montreal. There was a promo reason for her to fly all the way to Budapest for her birthday to be with her “good friend” Not to mention a member of Parliment saying he witnessed them kissing in a pub! Seriously put down the RPattz blow up doll. Back away slowly & realize KSITBU.

    Hey kim—— filming on breaking dawn has three weeks to go so there’s one error in your piece

    Second they had no filming or promo between November of 2010- June of 2010 yet they were photographed and visited each other routibelybduring that time. Kristen made multiple trips to London and Budapest to visit rob while he filmed bel ami— all of thus is verifiable on not shipper speculation. Same goes for the months of august through October no twilight duties during that time but again they were together as rob then went to visit Kristen on multiple on the road locations , and they attended a friends wedding together during thus time.

    Things may change but acknowledge that there have been many many non work happenings. And fact check before you post by saying breaking dawn has wrapped when the whole world knows they are still filming makes you look foolish.

    I guess you guys missed the pics of them kissing in Montreal when Kristen was filming “On the Road”? They are almost always together, and moreso when the Twilight movies are not being filmed or promotoed. The relationship status question has been answered. Now it’s just a matter of whether or not they will last.

    Are you serious? There have been sooooooo many sightings that have nothing to do with promotion for the saga. There have been weddings, new years eve (2 times), visiting each other when they are shooting other movies, and the list goes on. The answer has always been out there, and if it was anyone other than Rob and Kristen, no one would question that they are dating. Yes, the answer has always been there for anyone with eyes, it’s just many are not willing to believe.

    Breaking dawn is still filming and will be or another three weeks. The pair had no filming or promo duties from November 2009-may 2010 yet they flew all over the world to see each other. Ther are pap and fan puc to support this , multiple tips to the UK , Budapest birthdays and holidays together. Same goes for this summer when rob visited her non twilight move set multiple times .

    This piece is all conjecture and the title states a possibility as fact.

    Sorry for double post I didn’t see that the primal post had been added

    Well Kim I absolutely love your theory! You see when Kristen made all those trips to see Rob in the Uk and Budapest they were actually filming super secret BD scenes “Edward and Bella do Europe”!!
    Same applied to Rob visiting her elsewhere, they were filming BD on the side! BD is two films so they have had to expand and elaborate so they have sent Edward and Bella on a whirlwind worldwide Honeymoon tour!
    Thanks so much for shedding light on this – here was me thinking that Rob and Kristen are in a committed relationship and go to great lengths to see each other when seperated. Also silly old me for thinking that they didnt work togther from Nov 2009 – Oct 2010 (with a few brief joint promo duties for Eclipse).
    I see now that they have been working together all the time. Oh, and when they were seen out at gigs, restaurants, pubs etc constantly throughout 2010 well they were. business meetings, every single one!!

    Kim – i suggest you spend a tiny amount of time researching something before you write such rubbish.

    They spent 2 New Year’s Eves together, Kristen was at Bel Ami set as confirmed by airport pic and Christina Ricci. Rob was at On The Road set there were lots of photos on that.

    The big question now will be : Now that they won’t be filming together, will they last? This is the real test now if the relationship will survive.

    Can they not just be friends?
    Wow, okay, I just need to get this off my chest.

    I have a best friend – a guy – who I met about 6 years ago in my job. When he moved from America to the UK to work for 8 months, I made trips over to see him frequently – inc. both my birthday and his – what can i say, i missed my best friend – and he’s done the same! We’ve gone to parties and concerts on our own together, can make each other laugh until we cry, and have our own little language that nobody else understands. Yet we have never hooked up, and have NEVER had romantic feelings for each other. I know this because every one of our friends think that there’s something there and ask about it constantly, to a point where it got awkward and we had to ask one another about it before clearing up the rumors. Again.
    Neither of us are gay, we are both single, and have been for a long time. We are honestly just good friends, and still are now that he’s back working with me, but it would be easier if people didn’t make up rumors and speculate 24/7! lol
    Maybe Rob and Kris are different, but i see a lot of my own relationship in them when they’re together, and if it turns out that they are dating, then brilliant! BUT,if they really are just good friends, i can tell you that there’s nothing more annoying / friendship-destroying then EVERY ONE speculating that you’re secretly dating when you’re not.

    Oh, and yes, there IS always a stream of grainy pictures of “the seconds before they kissed”, or ones where they’re hugging, or saying something in to the others ear, which are made out to look like they had been kissing, but there’s never anything clearer. They’ve worked together now for what, 3 years?(im not a twilight fan) and have shot up into stardom so quickly that yes, of course he will have a better friendship with her then any of his other co-stars – with whom he would work with for only a few months. (and vice-versa!)
    I just think the ‘speculation’ is ridiculous. Believe what you wanna believe, i guess. but it’s really none of our business anyway!
    (PS: Sorry if this is all over the place. i had a lot to say and probably contradicted myself a lot LOL)

    Thanks for all the comments! In my personal opinion, I think they probably are a couple. But there’s a tiny little thing called *editorializing*, meaning all of these media outlets who photograph them together are only printing what they want people to see.

    I guarantee you–99.999% of the photos the paparazzi take show Rob and Kristen being utterly unromantic. But once they get a shot of the two holding hands, the next thing you know, there’s a (completely exaggerated) story about how they are all over each other.

    Case in point: pics of Kristen and Taylor promoting “Eclipse” in Asia last year. They did some photos together that would have DEFINITELY been spun as “the romantic couple” if it had been she and Rob. But because nobody wanted to make a story of a Kristen/Taylor coupling, the spin placed on it was “pals Kristen and Taylor”.

    All that said, while I do believe they are probably a couple, I think at least half of the photos showing them “being romantic” was the press taking liberties around what they see. So, that’s why I think that if Kristen walks the red carpet with Rob at the WFE premiere (or does something else blatant), we can pretty much assume they really are a couple.
