Robert Pattinson ‘knows Kristen is not good for him’ & ‘he feels like an idiot’


After widespread tabloid reports that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were back to hooking up on the downlow, last week one lucky paparazzo got photos of Rob and Kristen leaving his Beverly Hills house after a “four hour rendezvous.” Which basically means that the tabloids were right and are still right. While this could possibly be some kind of conspiracy to combat Liberty Ross’s Vanity Fair article and/or a conspiracy to get more work, I do have to wonder… what if they’re just hooking up right now because they have sexual chemistry together? Yeah, I know. You’d think that the sight of Kristen’s scowl and the smell of Rob’s hair funk would be enough to shut down all of the sex… but apparently not. Star Mag claims that Rob isn’t proud of himself for what’s going on, but he can’t help himself either:

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart ended their four-year relationship in May, less than a year after Kristen’s cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders. But the two have recently met up at his new Beverly Hills mansion, and they were spotted driving their cars out of his home after a four-hour rendezvous.

When Rob realized he was being photographed, he went back to his house while Kristen flipped photographers the finger and sped off.

“Rob knows that Kristen is not good for him, but he just can’t let her go… he’s hooked up with her a few times but has been adamant that no one knows because he feels like an idiot taking her back again.”

“Rob has been playing the field to try to move on from Kristen… but he just can’t let go.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

“He feels like an idiot taking her back again…” Good. He should feel like an idiot. Because it’s idiotic. I mean, I get that he’s had a rough year and a half, he probably feels all over the place, he doesn’t know who to trust, and his new “LA friends” seem like users and a—holes. He trusts Kristen because he’s known her the longest. But this relationship really needs to die. It needs to be over, and they need to not see each other for a while so they can both heal. Maybe that’s just me, I guess. Because this “hooking up but don’t tell anyone” deal is picking at the scab. Gross.

By the way, I still love these 2008 Vanity Fair photos so much. They are both so beautiful in this photoshoot.

    Maybe it’s just a case of “the heart wants what the heart wants”. Or not.

    • Naye in VA says:

      I don’t know. If It were a “heart wants” case, he would be more open about hooking up, like Rihanna who had no shame that she actually cried over dude on tv ughh. Anyway, secret hookups with exes are kind of like “I like having sex with you, this whole existence with you is comfortable, but I’m pretty sure you’re gonna screw me over again, and so is everybody else, so lets keep this to ourselves, but if you don’t screw me, well…we’ll see” Its relationship limbo. For people who aren’t in a rush to be in a relationship, or date anybody else but dislike being alone. Been there.

      • Sagal says:

        Who did Rihanna cry about on TV? She always seems stoic.

      • Naye in VA says:

        Chris Brown. On her Oprah special. Talking about how she would always love him and how she should have spoke up for him after the beating because he needed help and not public admonishment. It was…ughh

      • Sagal says:

        I watched that interview. She forgave him. I don’t see an “ugh” in that. Holding on to anger doesn’t help anyone. If that’s what she wants to do, fine. Who are you to judge it? She forgave her father, who was abusive himself. Maybe she is able to do that, because she recognizes her flaws as well. It’s not always black and white. People aren’t all good or all bad. And forgiveness is really about the person who wants to forgive, because the person who did something wrong often has already moved on and really doesn’t care. So if she forgave her father or Chris, it helped her way more than it has helped Chris, who’s clearly going through something now. I thought she was fearless in that interview. It was brave to say what she really thought and how it took years to get to that point.

      • Naye in VA says:

        @ Sagal.
        It seemed more like she was apologizing for him, rather than just forgiving him. There is nothing wrong with forgiveness. I do, however, find it ughh to forgive somebody that is terrible to you in order to excuse your getting back with them. I also find it ugghh when you can find time to speak about how you still love your abuser and forgive him and cry over your lost love, but you never found the time to actually say that what he did was wrong and shouldn’t happen to any other woman. That isn’t her job, she isn’t supposed to be everybody’s role model, I just think that speaks to what type of forgiveness that really was. There is a difference between forgiveness and apologist. And I dont think it helped her at all. If anything she seems to be in a worse place than she was before, not taking care of herself, going back and forth with him on twitter about the status of what they are doing with each other now, and picking on his new sort-of-kind-of sometimes-when youre not around- gf, just because.

      • Liv says:

        “Maybe she is able to do that, because she recognizes her flaws as well.”

        What the? Are you seriously comparing her to her father or Chris? There’s no excuse for beating up your girlfriend or boyfriend! It wasn’t even a slap, he punched her several times right in her face! You can kill someone by doing that! Don’t tell me that she has her flaws. I don’t like her very much, but her only fault was to let him be in her life. Plus it was totally inappropriate when she said that he needed help. That’s why he doesn’t learn from his mistakes, because he always thinks he’s the victim. Enough!

    • Minty says:

      I compare their relationship to a bag of Ruffles or some other Trans Fat laden snack.. You know it’s bad for you, but some habits are hard to break.

    • Wake up says:

      This article is such a joke, based on the fact that you believe a pap who says she was there for 4 hours. She could have been there for 4 minutes, you have no idea. And he could have merely been negotiating to get one of his expensive guitars back, no sex involved. I’d like to believe he’s smarter than that, and based on the fact that he still refuses to be seen in public with her since May, I think he is smarter than that.

      Also, those VF pics you love so much were taken when she was still screwing Michael A. on a regular basis, and in fact, he was at the location the whole time the shoot was being done. He’s standing just a few feet behind the camera man the whole time, you can see him in the video on youtube of this VF shoot. So they were acting, what they got paid to do.

  2. Karen81 says:

    I’ll say it again, she must be amazing in bed.

    Guys are throwing their careers away for Kristen.

  3. Francie Nolan says:

    Without the manufactured tabloid drama we’d forget they and their garbage movies existed. And god knows we can’t have that.

  4. T.Fanty says:

    Is he kidding? She’s great for him. She got him a new film role!

    (and I would argue that the same applies vice versa, just for the record)

  5. Nicole says:

    I never noticed until now but in that last photo their features are IDENTICAL. It must be like looking in a reverse-sex mirror every time they look at each other.

    • Apples says:

      His eyebrows were plucked then for the vampire role- you’re right. they were shaped more like KStews.
      Also, it’s hard to tell how they ~really~ look because the amount of photoshop in these images is crazy. For instance, there is tons of post work done to KStews jawline (in most photo-shoots actually).

  6. mytbean says:

    Pheromones want what pheromones want. If that’s all it is – one long booty call – fine.

    • Naye in VA says:

      Having on e long booty call with an ex that you were head over heels for is a terrible idea. My best friend did that, now he and the crazy heifer have a kid. And they still haven’t been in a legitimate relationship for like two years.
      My long booty call, that didnt begin until we had been separated for a year, resulted in us cycling thru the same terrible crap we went thru before, and I just kept thinking “I dont even like you, I cant stand you” for months. But the sex was sooooo good.

    • magpie says:

      Thank you MYTbean…I hate that “heart wants” phraze. I prefer “Follow your heart, but take your brain with you”.

  7. MonicaQ says:

    I hear the shrieks of “ROBSTEN UNBROKEN!”…right in time for that ultimate box set to come out.

  8. Kiddo says:

    This is a thing that will never die like Aniston’s hair, or Aniston vs Jolie, or how very sexy the sexy business is with the Smiths. It’s like that lag in conversation, and no one knows what to talk about, then someone brings up the weather out of desperation. “So how about the weather, huh? But no one really cares. It’s filler fodder for tabloids.

  9. Liv says:

    Doesn’t he have friends who get him out of L.A.? Maybe make him move to NY or something? He seemed like a decent guy when he started out, now not so much. Too much L.A. party scene and weird people around him.

    • Cary says:

      I wonder if he stays in LA because he can’t break things off with Stewart. It happens.

    • Gwenhuvera says:

      I think he’s still a decent guy. In every interview I’ve ever seen he comes across as sincere, humble, sweet and more than a little dorky.

      I believe he’s just kind of lost now and trying to find his way. She was his whole world for years and now he has to make a life for himself without her. Give him time. I’ve been in this situation. It’s so hard to let go of someone who was everything to you. And then they break your heart and you find that the one person who was always there to comfort you in times of sorrow is the person who caused you to be wallowing in sadness. I can only wish him the best.

      • Jennifer says:

        You’re comment makes the most sense. His best friends are artists with busy careers like Rob so he probably doesn’t get to see them as often. So he has to find new friends in L.A. who won’t take advantage of his good nature. I’m sure he feels lonely and misses Kristen because he did share so much with her. But now she is not really there for him like that. He is very private and guards his privacy so it must be hard to try and move on and find other relationships in L.A. I hope he continues to focus on his work and stays as far away from Kristen as possible. Time will heal his heart and he will find someone who truly deserves it.

  10. gg says:

    Or, gee, maybe Star magazine is still full of $hit.

  11. Hubbahun says:


    But I agree, trhat photoshoot gives me the smutty tingles for them both (I block out the thought of their special kind of ‘funk’ :D )

  12. MissMoody says:

    I’m with you on the VF photoshoot. Love it. I’m surprised Sparkles is still alive after those pictures of him and KStew trucking each other came out. Isn’t he still with Dylan Penn? Sean Penn will beat the English pretty boy hipster right outta him if he’s not careful…

  13. blue marie says:

    I really like those VF photos, I still think they’re the best that those 2 have ever looked. There’s a softness to her face that she lacks in most photos.

    As for the rest who cares? Let them do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel.

  14. Another Ann says:

    Y’all don’t really believe anything written in Star magazine, do you?

    I swear that every magazine has a different story about these two. Some insist they’re hooking up, some insist they’re not and he’s still seeing Dylan Penn, some insist he’s not seeing anyone….let’s face facts. Nobody but them knows what is or isn’t going on. So why does everyone get their panties in a twist about it?

  15. Annie says:

    I love those pictures too and it’s funny because you can see how in the making of video and in the actual pictures she was just so flirty with him and she was still dating her ex WHO WAS THERE because he just could not leave her alone for two seconds. Look at the second picture how she has her hand up his sleeve. No wonder he’s crazy about her. She knows what she’s doing. And he will be for hung up on her for a long time. Honestly, how can you mess around behind the back of someone who worships you and who’s worth it… It’s beyond me. And for someone married, who at the same time went behind the back of someone who sacrificed her career to give him a family and help HIS career. Sometimes people don’t understand how lucky they are. They think true love happens many times in a lifetime when for most people it doesn’t even happen once.

    If Rob wants to crawl back to her, fine. But I hope he knows that all the hard work he’s doing to disassociate from Twilight is worthless then. Because the two of them together are always going to pull the same crazy people toward them that will not leave them alone and will remind people of the same movies they want to leave behind. I’m sure his team will be like “We got you a role opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, a man whose rising you wish you had. And you’re screwing it up.” He needs to get it together. Kristen will ruin his career. Look at the state of hers. And don’t say it’s fine because she’s working. Screech is working too. Quality > quantity.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Annie I agree with you completely. It’s so apparent in those pics she’s aware of her impact on him.

      Together or not, I think it’s just toxic for him to be associated in the present with her, because it’s Twilight/Robsten, don’t you know? If he ever wants to be viewed as a character other than Edward Cullen, Rob should give some serious thought to how the fans/audience/press perceive him – if he’s seeing Kristen, get smarter about it. If she’s the one, be open about it. If there is someone else, put an end to the constant speculation and move on.

    • T.C. says:

      Well she has a history right ? If she was flirting like crazy with Robert in front of her boyfriend for the VF shoot then she probably cheated of that bf with Robert. It should be no surprise then that she cheated on Rob with her director who she was flirting with on the red carpet. It shouldn’t have been a surprise to Sparkles. He obviously had no problem with her cheating on her bf to get with him. Karma is a bitch.

      • Lara Morgana says:

        Yes, Karma will get you every time. Rob knew she was with Michael but he fell for her so fast and so hard that he didn’t care. Now here he is heartbroken like her first boyfriend. And I do agree with Annie – she knew exactly what she doing and she was aware that he was in love with her from the beginning. She wanted him to love her and By Golly, love her he did (and still does).

        It takes a long time to get over a love that deep (on his part). She was his whole world, his best friend, his soul mate. He wanted to marry her and start a family. The rug was pulled out from under him so quickly that he’s probably still reeling.

        Someday he will find someone who will make him forget Kristen. It might take a long time but it will happen. Until then he will do what he has to get through the pain and if that means hooking up with her now and then – so be it.

      • Original A says:

        Not really. I like Sparkles, but the way some of the Stans and Robsten Stans re-write everything is cray. They would go months without being seen together when they were “together,” and one of their co-workers said they were on and off from when they first started dating in an interview. He was warm with everyone from the beginning, there are interviews where he interacts with other women the the exact way. I think they dated, but this whole “they were madly in love” pre scandal rings false. And her ex was nothing but classy in this one interview I saw where they kept asking him about her, so it doesn’t seem like there is bad blood there.

  16. Kelly says:

    No, but she’s really good for his career though. And I bet he knows it.
    If he were serious and had any self-respect he’d move out of LA now, go back to London and get his sheit and life together. It’s not like he needs the money to beg for jobs in Hollywood….

    • Miss Bennet says:

      No, just no. At this point, he’s good for her career. That’s why she hung on to him tooth and nail after the cheating scandal. This is good PR for her but not for him.

      • prisk says:

        How is he good for her career ? people hate her more when they’re seen together . Since the break up she’s booked more roles in 3 months than she’s ever done in 4 years of that relationship
        And his image isn’t very clean either . Guys see him as a wuss. The twilight days are over. We are not talking about some great respected actor here , we are talking a mediocre actor who got lucky because he got cast to play a character girls were crazy about . Before twilight he was nothing , just did some terrible indie movies and played a minor role in one harry potter movie

  17. Sarah says:

    I want to say something positive: fantastic pictures. such a long way from how both of them look when they are not working.

  18. GeeMoney says:

    Ugh. They have the fakest relationship on planet Earth.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Politely disagree. They do have some sort of relationship. We just don’t know the nature of it.

      • GeeMoney says:

        Ok, they are friends milking a fake romantic relationship. Satisfied?

      • Tig says:

        Most astute comment yet- somehow, turning your car right around once pap are sighted(or mission accomplished?) doesn’t scream true love to me. If-and this is a big if- he playing her a bit, who could blame him? But this circus needs to leave town, for both their sakes.

      • sienna says:

        I’m with you, Punky, we have no idea their true dynamic but it certainly doesn’t seem like a showmance. Otherwise, why would they still be in contact?

        I had a relationship like this in my early/mid twenties, we were so bad together but we couldn’t stay apart. We snuck around at the end, not because we were embarrassed but because there was only so much our friends would take of our drama so we were trying to spare them.

        I have been very happily married for a decade but I ran into him recently (he is still unmarried) and the sparks were still there. I ended the conversation as quickly as I could and got far away from him, fast.

  19. fingerbinger says:

    I like these pictures, but the have zero sexual chemistry.

  20. Saddie says:

    Maybe they will react like natalie wood and robert wagner. They’ll split, marry other people, have a child and come back together later on when they both grow up?
    Rob needs to grow a pair and well Kristen – wants her way with everything.
    Relationships are about compromise, not giving in and letting the wife have her way on everything.

  21. Alexandra says:

    Can’t live with her, but can’t live without her either, I guess. Oh well…

  22. The Original G says:

    I can only come to the conclusion that he’s not that bright.

  23. Garrett says:

    Well, if he knows this, Why doesn’t he cut her off for good then?

  24. jess says:

    I think more than anything else, they were best friends. Which makes it even harder to walk away, plus, their friends have become friends and some are even dating. I think they will become friends and maybe thats what their trying to work on. He was just seen with Dylan who hes rumored to be dating. I guess will just have to wait and see.

  25. Her indoors says:

    They are so young, I’m not going to shade either of them. We’ve all made stupid mistakes. If they want to get back together, good luck to them.

  26. Original A says:

    They were seen the week the DVDs came out and the other Twilight members did some fan event. She was in NYC like the next day to film, so that might account for the awkward timing. This same week, the first week the DVDs are out, there are rumors of them maybe getting together (in US, Star just makes shit up). Timing. With the added bonus of overshadowing that VF story. I do think they are friends, friends who make it known they publicly hang out when they know it may benefit their cut of money from the DVDs. Also, I like Sparkles but this whole thing where he’s a naive little naïf (even though he lived with another woman for a few years before even doing Twilight and obviously had other serious relationships in the past….it’s not like she was his first serious gf) and KStew as this evil super villain is RME. The way some of his fans emasculate him is cray. He’s in his late 20s, not a kid.

    • Miss Bennet says:

      I don’t think he actually lived with any woman. Those are only rumors. His alleged girlfriend has never admitted to anything except friendship and living near him in London. This is what irritates me about most gossip. No one bothers to hunt down and read the original material or interviews. The just repeat the same inaccuracies over and over as though saying it again and again will make it true. Good Gossip should be intelligent. Nothing to do with either Pattinson or Stewart has yet to break the 70 IQ points level. (I’m being generous here) I like Sparkles, but this crap is getting old, even for a fan.

      • another nina says:

        I read an interview with a guy, who was his double at Twilight, just a regular local guy. And he was sort of making fun of Pattz that he had been just in one long term relationships by that time, which is supposedly what Pattz told him himself. Supposedly, he shared his first crappy apartment with his best friend, I’m not sure whether it was Sturridge or the one, who is into music. But Pattz always brought that girl as his date at all gatherings.
        Anyway, I think their alleged hook up is still a publicity. Perhaps to help DVD sales or bring attention to their new project. They have their theme and they continue exploiting it.

  27. Sunny says:

    I hope Stewart and Pattinson pay rent for their apartment in you head.

  28. Nicolette says:

    Whatever. I do know I love that Vanity Fair shoot. They never looked better.

  29. Moby says:

    Maybe he should grow a pair and then he’d figure it out! S-E-R-I-O-U-S-L-Y!

    The portrayal of this guy is SOOOO lame, he comes off like some tormented little schoolgirl that’s at a cheaters’ beck and call. He really needs to figure out how to resolve this sort of lame publicity if he wants a continuing career. Hot young male actor’s that were supposedly this sensitive and hurting over someone that publicly pooped all over them went out of vogue sometime around 1983.

    Maybe his agent should just place an ad in one of the H’wood trades seeking all parts where some dude gets sand kicked on him at the nearest beach.

  30. lunchcoma says:

    If they keep this up, I’m going to start thinking that it’s an actual relationship and not a publicity stunt.

    Regardless, it sounds like Rob maybe needs to consider moving back to London. It doesn’t seem like the LA scene is healthy for him, and perhaps being around old friends and family would be a stabilizing influence.

  31. Asdfg says:

    He use to not bother me, like I thought from the beginning their relationship was a beard situation. Now that they’re seeing each other again tells me their relationship was or is real and that grosses me out. The fact Kristen can go a week without bathing/changing clothes and the fact Rob can date a woman that looks as if she just went dumpster diving grosses me out soooo much. Ewww…. I should have known it was true love when Kristen said,
    “My God, I’m so in love with my boyfriend. I wish he were here now. I think I want to have his babies. I love the way he smells. And him me. Like, he loves to lick under my armpits.”.

    She wasn’t joking she was being serious.

  32. Fan says:

    Poor thing, he loves her and at the same ashamed.

  33. epiphany says:

    Dear G-d, I can’t we’re talking about these two, again. There is no romance; there never was. It was a complete fabrication to promote their insipid movies. Both of their careers have hit the skids since then, so TPTB are “rehashing the fauxmance.”

  34. P says:

    This whole thing is just funny to me … 5 or is it 6 yrs later most women still hate Kristen Stewart . And gossip is even worse now , they don’t know sh!t but they gotta sell their rags and Stewart / Pattinson seem to be the key . I just laugh at the comments because some are ludicrous , everyone thinks they are an insider or an expert about these two’s relationship ! They are willing to quote Star / Enquirer / Life and style / e! /People / Us etc… Not once they or their rep confirm or denied these alleged or reported stories .. Curiouser and curiouser Lol .. I’m enjoying this whole meltdown and craziness from both haters and supporters .. Gossip mongering has never so fascinating !!! It will be a sad day for all when it all ends , I will be just relieved when that day comes !!

  35. Maritza says:

    I think she learned her lesson, if they love each other they deserve a second chance. Sometimes the relationship even grows stronger after a heartbreak like that.

    • Annam44 says:

      Maybe in a normal relationship, where the cheating was only known by family and a few friends, and even then, it really hard to get over. With this cheating event, pretty much everybody on planet earth knows about it. There are 50+ pics that are never going away. Tabloids can start rumors about one of them cheating; when filming a movie, at a club, or anywhere the other one isn’t, that can add more mistrust to an already shaky relationship. And worst of all the papz still hound them about it. Remember that video of them coming back from Twi promo and papz are shouting to Rob that Kristens going to cheat again? Hard to forget and move on with each other when the world knows about it too.

  36. fabulous says:

    Maybe I’m getting old right but why is it that on all the shots of them together Rob is in the ‘passive’ stance? It is not so long ago that they would have been in the opposite positions for the photos. While I’m all for women’s rights and so on I just can’t bear BABY MEN. Stop being mummy’s boys and grow a pair.

  37. Mika302 says:

    I’m sorry…but do any of u know them personally??? Thy r grown people who can do what they want! How do u know how devastated he was as people keep saying!!! Calling him an idiot if he is back with her us stupid! That’s like saying everyone who cheats should never b forgiven. I’m sure a lot of marriages would be done!!! U either forgive that person and try to make it work, or leave them alone!! But it’s sickening how people keep acting like he is some lil ass boy!! He’s a grown man!!!

  38. TOPgirl says:

    Whatever…if they hook up..they hook up. Love ain’t easy!!!
