So we all pretty much know that Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are dating, right? I mean, we can only see so many pictures of them holding hands, and hearing about Rob’s crush on Kristen before it can no longer fall under the category of “speculation.” But, the two still remain very coy about their relationship when they’re asked publicly about it.
Kristen Stewart was recently interviewed by Elle Magazine and she said there that she would never cheapen her relationships by talking about them. And while I think that’s sort of a load of bull, she does make a good point at the end about how it would get people to stop talking about it. From Elle,
“On criticism of her public manner: “I think it’s funny that when I go onstage to accept an award, they think I’m nervous, uncomfortable, and awkward—and I am—but those are bad words for them.”
On her red-carpet demeanor: “People say that I’m miserable all the time. It’s not that I’m miserable, it’s just that somebody’s yelling at me…I literally, sometimes, have to keep myself from crying…It’s a physical reaction to the energy that’s thrown at you.”
On caring: “I hate it when they say I don’t give a shit, because nobody cares more than I do. I’m telling you I don’t know anybody who does this that gives a shit more than I do.”
On Team Edward vs. Team Jacob: “I would never cheapen my relationships by talking about them. People say, ‘Just say who you’re dating. Then people will stop being so ravenous about it.’ It’s like, No they won’t! They’ll ask for specifics.”
So, when she’s on the record, Kristen Stewart is keeping mum about who she’s dating. But, then Kristen and Rob both appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show on Friday. And first of all, let me just say that I’m pissed that I missed it. Mostly because I keep missing the Twilight segments that Oprah does, just like I missed the Eclipse trailer she ran a couple of weeks ago. But I digress. On Friday’s episode, Oprah is said to know that she had to ask them the burning question that has been at the top of our lists: Are you dating? And, while fans still didn’t get a straight answer while they were on air, it was a whole different story backstage. From People,
“If there’s someone who can get people to open up about their private lives, it’s Oprah Winfrey. And looks like the talk show queen has done it again, although this time it all went down when the cameras weren’t rolling.
Before sitting down with the cast of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse this week for The Oprah Winfrey Show, Winfrey and the gang reportedly went over the questions she was going to ask them.
Knowing she had to “go there” – asking Robert Pattinson, 23, and Kristen Stewart, 20, if they are indeed dating as blogs have been speculating for months – Winfrey told the two she wouldn’t press too hard on the dating question during the interview as long as “they told her [off camera] what was really going on,” E! Online reports.
“Both Rob and Kristen’s people and Summit [Entertainment] then confirmed ahead of time [Rob and Kristen] are together and are dating,” says a source who was at the taping of the episode, set to air May 13. “One hundred percent.”
When asked the question, Pattinson and Stewart, who said she’ll never discuss her love life, “could totally give the coy nonanswer answer (Rob joked Kristen was pregnant, Kristen joked Rob was having the baby),” adds the source, “and [Oprah] wouldn’t press it too hard on air.”
So there ya have it. If we all didn’t know it before, then we know now. Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson are indeed dating, whether they’ll admit it on air or not. And it’s definitely speculation no more.
