Kristen Stewart recently opened up in an interview with Marie Claire about love and how it happens, saying she can’t control who her heart falls for, and she also shared a poem she wrote about her ex, Robert Pattinson.
“You don’t know who you will fall in love with. You just don’t. You don’t control it. Some people have certain things, like, ‘That’s what I’m going for,’ and I have a subjective version of that,” she said. “I don’t pressure myself… If you fall in love with someone, you want to own them —but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love.”
Stewart and Pattinson found themselves in the midst of a huge scandal in the summer of 2012 when she was caught on camera kissing her married “Snow White And The Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders, and subsequently released a public apology to Pattinson.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry,” she said.
The couple ended up reconciling briefly before calling things off, and the tabloids had a field day snapping pics of them moving their belongings out of the home they shared. Although she was clearly upset over the breakup, she says that writing has helped her get through it, and shared a poem she wrote while on a road trip through the south.
Titled “My Heart Is a Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole”, the poem reportedly reflects on the time she spent with her “Twilight” costar.
“He’s speaking in tongues all along the pan handle/ And this pining erosion is getting dust in/ My eyes/ And I’m drunk on your morsels,” it reads.
