Kristen Stewart: Why Robert Pattinson is Over HerBy: Kimberly Ripley - July 31, 2014
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will live on together via DVDs in the Twilight series of films, but as a couple they are definitely through. Rob recently spoke about why they won’t get back together again.
“S*** happens, you know?” he told Esquire U.K. “It’s just young people … it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a s***?”
Rob was referring to Kristen Stewart’s dalliances with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, whose divorce from his wife Liberty Ross–as a result of the same scandal–was just made final.
“The hardest part was talking about it afterwards,” Robert Pattinson continued. “Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict. It’s like that scene in Doubt [with the late Philip Seymour Hoffman], where he’s talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”
It’s abundantly clear these days that Rob has left all traces of Kristen Stewart in the dust. He even sold his L.A. home earlier this year.
“They photographed anyone who came up to the gate, anyone who rang the bell,” he said of his former residence, “and they followed any car that came in and out.”
That probably hasn’t changed too much since his split from Kristen Stewart.
“I can’t go to hip places,” he said. “I have to find weird little restaurants on the fringes. But they’re so much nicer. I love empty bars. Any empty bar, actually.”
When all is said and done, dating Kristen Stewart was probably exhausting for Robert Pattinson. Not only did he have his own celebrity status–that of Twilight’s Edward Cullen– drawing fans near, but Kristen’s to contend with as well. When she cheated on him it likely made that extra effort seem like more than he could handle. And who can blame him?
