Robert Pattinson is poised to burst out of his “Twilight” cocoon forever thanks to a summer filled with well-received roles in decidedly un-YA movies, but he should probably brace himself for the fact that he’ll be fielding Kristen Stewart questions from now until the end of days.
In an interview for the June 6 issue of The Hollywood Reporter, Pattinson was mum when it came to the specifics of his current status with Stewart — though he did manage to confirm that they were in touch.
“Oh, yeah,” Pattinson said when asked the big Q. Blithely, according to THR.
To be fair to Pattinson, we’d probably be blithe too if we were continually pressed about our exes, especially if our exes cheated on us with married director Rupert Sanders.
To be fair to everyone else, the Pattinson/Stewart relationship is still pretty fascinating. Little has been heard from either party since “Breaking Dawn — Part 2″ came out in 2012 — which is actually kind of strange given that Stewart issued a very public apology when she cheated mere months before its release — and it’s hard not to speculate when they’re practically rubbing shoulders at events like the Cannes Film Festival.
Do they send each other funny GIFs? Will they see each other’s new grown-up movies? Neither party is really talking, but the THR interview made one thing abundantly clear — with “The Rover” and “Maps to the Stars” hitting big screens this summer, Pattinson is happy, and officially moving on from “Twilight.” Period.
