I’m want to preface this blog post by saying that I’m a romantic.
That being said, I can’t help but think the whole Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson romance was (and probably still is) a publicity stunt. I don’t know. Maybe when they were filming the first movie, they stood too close together and the media ssumed they were a couple, so the Twilight stars went with it. Or maybe their publicists got together and leaked the info. You know, hinting at an off-screen romance to get pub for the movies. (Which I love, btw!) And now, right before the whole press junket thing, she comes out an admits she cheated on him, and he dumps her. What’s next, her announcement that she’s going into sex rehab? (Please Don’t even get me started on that! Newsflash – everyone’s addicted to sex!)
I know my take on their romance sounds cynical coming from a romance writer, but I don’t think we can know what’s real in Hollywood and what isn’t. If you’re movie star and people aren’t taking about you, then you’re a has-been. What better way for young, up-and-coming actors in a blockbuster movie to get pub than a hot off-screen romance?
Wonder if they’ll get back together right before the premiere?
