Kristen Stewart might be quietly dating Michael Pitt, according to UK gossips

Less than two weeks ago, Kristen Stewart was in Paris for Paris Fashion Week. She attended the Zuhair Murad show (remember the tapered lace pants?!) and the Chanel Fall/Winter show. If I had to choose, I’d say she looked better at the Chanel show. She wore booty shorts (ugh) and black leather fingerless gloves, and a rather nice white jacket. But what was REALLY interesting was that Kristen was seated next to Michael Pitt for the Chanel show. Michael Pitt, from Boardwalk Empire. Michael Pitt, who thinks he’s a genius-artist in the self-absorbed vein of James Franco (only somehow Pitt is even more pretentious). Well, now people are saying that Michael Pitt and Kristen Stewart are a couple. OH NOES.

KRISTEN STEWART finally has a reason to smile again. Despite the heartache over her break-up with ROBERT PATTINSON, the Twilight star has been secretly dating Boardwalk Empire actor MICHAEL PITT who she met at Paris Fashion Week.

A source said: “Kristen’s not over Rob but she’s getting there and Michael’s helping her through it. She vowed to throw herself into work and be single this summer. But when she met Michael last week, they hit it off. They both hate the spotlight and are smart bookworm types.”

[From The Sun]

From what I can see, The Sun really was the ground-zero source for all of this speculation, and personally, I don’t really trust The Sun. They play fast and loose with their sourcing, with their timelines, and with their editorial decisions. I think it’s far more likely that The Sun realized they had photos of Kristen and Michael sitting beside each other and they decided to make up a story about the pair being a new couple.

That being said… I would love it if Kristen and Michael were dating. It would make me laugh and laugh. They’re both so grumpy. They’re both self-absorbed idiots who think they’re genius artists. And of course, they’re both “smart bookworm types”. Cough.

    Probably not true but it would be great if it was. It would be like watching Grumpy and Grumpier. LOL Looks like they could deserve each other.

  2. Sisi says:

    Yeah I also date every random person I ever sit next to. Nice detective work from The Sun… Kind of impressed that they needed two weeks to think of this article.

  3. Anna says:

    Isn’t she supposed to be crying and pining over Sparkles still?

    • Really? says:

      I think she is, take a look at these photos, you could say she is literally posing for Rob, i know she doesn’t generally walk around all giddy with glee, but something in the eyes here are sayin’ “well Rob, here i am without you, another day, another poser by my side.” Deep, heavy sigh. “Like my gloves?”

      And this guy, i’ll never get why guys wear neck chains and purposely stick them out under the collar of their buttoned up dress shirts! Come on now, really? Whatever. Nice shades though.

  4. Arjuna says:

    I thought Micheal Pitt was out…like waaay out of the closet. So out that his grandmother was fixing him up on dates with other guys. If I’m wrong I stand corrected but, I know I read something last year actually about Pitt being openly gay.

  5. Lou says:

    I loved Pitt on dawsons creek back in the day. He’s great on boardwalk empire too. He may be a pretentious actor type, but at least he can back it up with good acting unlike kstew.

  6. Delilah says:

    I want those heels! And no, Kristen. Rebounds are supposed to be hot! At least an upgrade in some dept to make your ex you want back jealous.

  7. Yellowshaba says:

    I was intruiged by michael in the very beginning: The Dreamers, Murder by numbers. But then he takes himself so seriously that I can’t even take him seriously

  8. erika says:

    i hate his hair this dark.

  9. mom2two says:

    Michael Pitt was dating some artist/model (jamie bochart) and I suppose he still is. I have seen gay rumors attached to him as well, so who knows.
    But anyway, I highly doubt this is true. And if it were, throw tomatoes at me, but he is much better looking then Pattinson and more talented-so an upgrade for her.

    • Lark says:

      I lean towards him being gay, despite that girl who got called everything under the sun from his friend to fiancee. It reminds me cough cough of Henry Cavill’s ex-fiancee. Too many things leaning towards him being gay, and I’m fairly sure even Vulture or Gawker alluded to it once in an article. There are a lot of sparkle stans on here, but I agree with you too about Michael in looks and talent.

    • Cece says:

      He may be a better actor (I’ve never seen Pitt in anything), but he’s definitely not better looking!! He looks like a greasy douche and his face is puffy. I don’t think Pattison is all that, but he’s better than this guy.

      Not that it matters – this rumor seems like b.s.

  10. marie says:

    wow, that’s like douche to the umpteenth power.. she could do better. wait, wasn’t he with JGL at one time, or was that just blind guesses?

  11. L says:

    He’s such a great actor (Hedwig and the angry inch is AWESOME), but is a pretentious jerk.

    Grumpy and grumpier for sure.

  12. ClaireB says:

    Is it just me or these photos are ridiculous somehow ?

  13. mia girl says:

    I would love this to be true.
    The Pitt-licking jokes would write themselves.

  14. Hannah says:

    I love Michael Pitt’s acting! I had no idea he was pretentious though :-(

  15. Elodie says:

    OMG imagine they adopt a cat! Grumpy Cat is perfect here right?

  16. Talie says:

    Yeah, Michael would be a great influence on her…NOT. Run Kristen!

  17. Samtha says:

    If it’s true, she should probably stock up on Valtrex and penicillin.

  18. Lark says:

    Let’s be real. The Sun, Radar, and Hollywood Life are almost always fan fiction. The Sun might catch some British soccer star screwing around, but that’s about it.

    Also, people are right. Michael Pitt is strongly rumored to be gay. He had a fiancee back in 2009, but then articles went back to referring to her as his girlfriend and then finally just a friend/companion most of the time. He’s basically inching his way out of the closet. While I think most blind items are total BS, I think Lainey is right some of the time and she heavily insinuated he is gay. Not to mention back when I was into Boardwalk Empire and talking to a gay friend, he said it was all over the gay blogs and well known that Michael would be seen at a lot of gay bars and hangouts.

    I do get why the tabloids wanted to set this up, but yeah no. Michael K called them gloom and doom; they’d be like a Hot Topic goth lite couple and it’d be hilarious…the jokes would write themselves. But yeah, he’s very likely gay and The Sun…so no dice.

  19. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    She’s a “smart, bookworm type”? Hahahaaaaaaaaaa! Her PR people need to step up that image, then, because she currently comes across as the “empty, stoner type.”

  20. bns says:

    Perfect. They’re both insufferable.

  21. brumhildawayne says:

    Can’t believe I ever thought he was hot. He looks like a goth muppet in these pics — but not as cute.

  22. Guest says:

    This is not true but I would say they would be a good match. Just from what I read about both of them, too bad he has a girl. This is the type of man Kristen needs.

  23. Mia 4S says:

    I have to laugh at the “but he’s gay” stuff when it comes to this guy. Bisexual maybe but seeing as he is massively artist-pretentious do you honestly think he would lower himself and cater to the Minivan crowd by bearding? Come on!

    I doubt they are actually a couple but…yeah it would make sense.

    • Lark says:

      He probably is bi (if it’s true) now that I think about it. I tend to lean towards Henry Cavill being bi-sexual too. Who knows though? The only thing I know for sure is that Luke Evans said in an interview several years ago that he was a gay man in London, and then changed his tune when his career became successful…which is sad that (Luke) felt compelled to walk back in the closet because he is now an “action” star.

  24. Bigglesworth says:

    If he hasn’t come running out of the closet yet, he should now.

  25. A says:

    He’s MARRIED! to Jamie Bochert!
    They’ve been married for years.

  26. Annie says:

    Corey’s death and how Lea must be feeling right now kinda puts things in perspective for me. This juvenile game Rob and Kristen’s publicists are playing, along with the fans and tabloids is so stupid. Life is too short. If you’re over, stay over. I would never want to be in Lea’s shoes right now. I wish this whole drama was just over with. Kristen needs to disappear for a while because if she’s going to start playing the “so can I” game, she’s never going to win. Rob can hook up with better people anyway, and like I said, perspective is needed here. This whole thing is so stupid now in comparison with a real bad thing. I hope they both realize how lucky they are and should be grateful something like Corey’s tragedy didn’t happen to them.

    • Lark says:

      Annie, did it ever occur to you that the main problem is with their fans? That maybe they broke up and both are fine with it? They had a very weird relationship from the start, and it’s perfectly possible they were two friends or FWB and it spun wildly out of control due to bad PR. Also, this is The Sun of all places, if her publicist was going to plant something it would be in a source like E!. Even if she was dating a new guy, maybe it’s just because she likes the guy. Not because she’s trying to “one up” him.

      I agree that they both have some issues, but the fans themselves create ridiculous drama. Some of their fans can be completely crazy whether they stan for them or hate one while loving the other. If I remember correctly, they twisted around KStew saying that she felt like she could communicate and understand with the fans of Twilight because she was the same age as a lot of them (standard PR line)… into her sending them super secret messages…RPattz said some similar thing, and the fans twisted it around again into him sending them super secret messages. I’m just saying the fans often seem to be kind of paranoid and dramatic.

      IA though that it is so stupid that people get so worked up about the former relationship between her and RPattz when there are real tragedies or things to get truly angry (and not just irritated) about in the world.

    • Amelia says:

      Annie, you are the one assuming it’s a tit for tat situation. Firstly, this story is BS, as was the Riley Keough one. Secondly, the two of them could still be close friends for all we know. They have kept themselves very under the radar since, except for fan pictures, a few paparazzi shots and Kristen’s Paris Fashion week there has been nothing. Everything is made up. It astonishes me that people believe some of these stupid stories. People who keep up with gossip shouldn’t be naïve any more. We should have a fair idea of what is a BS story and what may have *SOME* truth. They both have to get on and live their lives.

    • Another Ann says:

      Don’t think either of their publicists are doing a thing. This is just standard tabloid media behavior. Choose stars that generate hits to your web site, make up a b.s. story, and sit back and watch the fun. Publicists don’t feed stories to The Sun, Hollywood Life, Radar, etc. They’re bottom feeders who just make up what they need to fill their site with stories that keep people clicking.

    • Annie says:

      I’m talking about eeeeeveryone. Even us who discuss their love lives. You put things in perspective and it’s like… Wow, this really is nothing. Publicists play games. Rob and Kristen have playe along. Tabloids, paps. And OF COURSE the main problem is the fans who eat that up. I saw people tweeting things like “Kstew fans, we had a rough summer last year, let’s support the Glee fans” as if the two situations were the same.

      Mostly, I do mean the fans who are looking for clues that they’re still together instead of waking up and realizing that it was a very ugly break up and them being apart is the best decision they ever made.

      I see so many people in my Twitter TL acting like they being apart is the worst tragedy. And then Cory dies and I think, wow, and this thing is still going on? Time to move on. All of us. I’ll be thinking about Lea. My heart aches for her right now. I would not survive that.

      • Lark says:


        IA with the fact that the crazy, inappropriate fans need to move on. I find it baffling that so many of them like KStew or RPattz but virulently despise (not just plain dislike, but downright despise) the other, or that they continue to ship them 3 odd months after they broke up.

        Also, IA that they use tabloids and or paps on occasion. But I believe it may be things like items in PopSugar or E!, not The Sun, Daily Fail or Hollywood Life, aka I just don’t buy that they are engaged in some vicious tabloid war or that they call the paps on a regular basis. An example of a tabloid war was when Miley and Liam had problems a few months ago…and the subsequent smear campaign that ran on Miley in People and E!.

        I do find it a bit ironic that so many of their fans often complain about them being dogged by paps or in tabloids, but never consider it is a supply and demand situation. As you mentioned, they “eat” anything up..even the most obvious BS. The trashier tabloids know that, so they’ll run nearly anything on them because they know it guarantees hits from the Beliber level fans. They probably are the only actors I can think of that would honestly be better off without a huge chunk of their fan base. I’m with you in that I still can’t believe that some of them are still shipping them together or upset, or that some hardcore RPattz stans are over-the-top hating on KStew, or that the hardcore KStew stans are over-the-top hating on RPattz. Time for them all to move on and emotionally disengage.

  27. Naomi says:

    I sit next to people on subways, at movies, restaurants, waiting rooms. You know random places. I guess what I’m saying is if you sit next to me we are dating. Obviously. Also obviously my standards are inclusive. But, please no socks with sandals.

  28. CC says:

    The sun is the gift that keeps on giving, but after the Cory thing, I need stuff to laugh at. I keep going to the Cavill-Cuoco “breakup” thread.

  29. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    Is she pledging allegiance to the flag in that second pic? I shouldn’t snark. At least she looks reasonably clean.

  30. Deidre says:

    Anything is an improvement over that wimpy, street bum tobaccy chewer

  31. B says:

    This is a shallow comment, but at least he has long fingers and long feet, teehee…

  32. gogoGorilla says:

    *tiny voice*

    I think she looks really good here. I hate the shorts and the gloves are very Madonna-wannabe, but you can’t see the shorts from a seated position and that jacket is divine. Her hair and makeup also look really good.

    I also wish she would start dating someone else (anyone else), just so the stupid Twihard stories would die and those fans would shrivel up and find a new king and queen.

    • Annie says:

      Are you kidding? If she starts dating someone else the drama will erupt again. Her fans will blame Rob or say he left her, poor girl. It’ll be a new wave of dumb stories. Both need to work and stay away from the paparazzi. Many people can do it. Why can they not? Angelina, one of the most followed women ever, had a double mastectomy and no one knew. Trust me, celebrities can hide when they want to.

      Kristen, especially, needs to go away for a bit.

  33. Amelia says:

    Jeez, these two are really going to be dating/married off to whoever they are seen within 50 yards of. Or not even near like that Riley Keough BS which people are still running with even though she denied it.

    Kristen should stay single for a while, hang out with her friends and have fun without Sparkles crazy ‘fan’ base thinking they have the right to judge her every breath.

    I don’t see how Kristen is pretentious. She seems like one of the most down to earth actors around. She doesn’t smile along and pretend like she is ok with disgusting paparazzi taunting and harassing her. She doesn’t present a false façade just to win over the minivan majority and that is reflected in comment sections. She pisses the pearl clutchers off so much. It’s brilliant :D Michael Pitt is a cutie though.

    Also, can I have Kristen’s legs?

    • Anname says:

      You don’t have to be a pearl clutcher to not love Kristen Stewart.

      I liked her with Rob, thought they were great together. But I do think she changed for worse over the years. If this is her growing up, I am not a fan. I don’t like her f-off attitude toward everything – that’s not edgy and “being true to herself”- it’s actually more juvenile than anything else. By all accounts she is sweet/nice in her personal life (aside from her massive f-you to Rob last year), but I don’t enjoy her public image. Can’t say that makes me a pearl clutcher or a hard-core hater, just not a fan.

    • Leanne says:

      ” She doesn’t present a false”

      lol, are you kidding me? She went to Fashion Week for the sole purpose of getting press. She has no interest in fashion whatsoever, NONE. How is that not disingenuous?

    • mia girl says:

      “She doesn’t present a false façade just to win over the minivan majority…”

      Uggg. I wish we could all agree to stop using the term
      “minivan majority”. I find it so over-used, under-representative and most of all, so out-dated. Didn’t this supposed “majority” moved on from minivans a while ago, into SUVs and now are probably buying up hybrids?

      Either way, I find it so corny, pedantic and it’s time has come and gone.

  34. Kemper says:

    Micsten? Michsten? Kristeal?

  35. aquarius64 says:

    If this is Kristen’s revenge hook-up for the Rob/Riley rumors it’s a stupid move PR wise. This guy Pitt has also been reported to have a long term girlfriend, ten years, and possibly engaged. Having this come out near the one-year anniversary of Mini-Cooper Gate is the dumbest thing a PR team let have legs since the Henry Cavil/Kaley Cuocolo (sp)showmance. Kristen is still trying to shake that mess, now tag a new potential cheating scandal on her to make that trampire stamp indelible. People screamed about Rob going after Kristen’s friend Riley, but at least the two parties are free and clear.

  36. kingkayski says:

    Don’t actually believed this BS.But i’m definitely shipping her w/ Garrett Hedlund,i heard he’s on his way to singledomn,he’s tall,can sing,can act a little and definitely not bad to look at,Garrett and swedish dong Alexander Skarsexual is the best way to heal that sparkle pain.

    • Amelia says:

      Garrett and Kirsten are on the outs? Where is the source? They always struck me as an odd couple. As for GarrettStew? They do look hot together but I think Kristen needs to try dating somebody not involved in the industry. Every actor has his psychotic fangirls and I just think she has dealt with enough of that crap for a lifetime. She’s a nice girl who made a bad life choice like so many other people have done, and was annihilated for it while the guy got to run away and hide. I’m rooting for her continue to bounce back, find a nice guy (eventually) and have an acting career that suits her (indie or mix of big budget and indie). It will sicken the snide little b*tches who live for hating on her.

      Enough is enough, ya know? Besides, Garrett seems to close to Sparkles personality. Tortured artist, faux ‘oh I’m just an innocent dude who just rocked in from London/Kentucky (or wherever Garrett is from how did I ever end up as a heartthrob’, crazy fans etc.

      She’s been there, done that! She needs someone fun who will bring her out of herself and give her some confidence. Just my dating advice lol

      • kingkayski says:

        I don’t think Garrett is close to Sparkles personality,he don’t have a mommy issue like Robbie(you know,everytime Robbie and Kristen hit a bumps in their relay,he go and run to nearest mommy figure he can find(Reese/Katy),Garrett don’t seems to have that kind of abnormalcy personality,he’s not a man/child,he seems the kind of guy who fix sh*t himself.If Garrett can handle a pro like Kirsten ,for sure he can handle Kristen wondering eye or vjj,like he’s gonna put a stop to it right away,i can actually hear him saying to Kristen”there will be no whoring around in this relay,okay?”in his ever manly voice.Beside, doesn’t Garrett looks like a guy who knows how to make a womans eyeballs disappear at the back of her head?just saying!So Garrettstew for me!!:)

    • Tig says:

      You think Robert’s fans are psycho? Let her get within the same block as the Viking god, and the wrath of all time will be on her in a skinny minute!

      She needs to date someone close to her age, and know this is reaching, her maturity level. The last thing she needs is some guy in his 30s .

  37. k says:

    Wow, someone did a half-a**ed job of cleaning out the concrete rubble under the seats.

  38. lady mary. says:

    i really like michel pitt ,especially in dreamers and funny games ,loved him,he is a decent actor and can give a good rsly performance despite his cute looks ,i hope he is still with jamie and iam srsly not fond of this pairing of kstew and him,he deserves way better

  39. skippy says:

    Two grumps? Why doesn’t she go with Rupert? They are both single now. They have so much in common, after all.

  40. Rabia says:

    Obviously not true, but would be awesome if it was. Pittsten? Pittstew?

    I just hope she starts dating someone openly soon.

  41. Poppy says:

    The douche is strong with these two…

  42. Abby says:

    Wow she looks gorgeous here.

    I’ve only seen him on that movie with Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock… Murder by Numbers? He’s kind of strange in that. But… they look perfect for each other.

  43. yolo112 says:

    She makes everything look so budget.

  44. Janet says:

    She could make a Chanel suit look like something from Goodwill.

  45. Pamela says:

    Don’t get the hate on Michael Pitt.

    He is an amazing actor.

  46. Rux says:

    Michael is a great actor but a terrible celebrity.

    If these two read a book that was above a fifth grade level I would be shocked. —Bookworm – HAHAHAHAHHAHA.

  47. Leanne says:

    I approve of her dating a douchbag. Her and Pettyfer, for instance, that would be an awesome pairing.

  48. Malificent says:

    He looks like the long-lost love child of Christopher Walken and Edna Mode.

  49. Izzy says:

    “Kristen Stewart finally has a reason to smile again”. Like there was a time when she was all smiles.

  50. s says:

    she looks really good in these photos.

  51. gg says:

    Everytime I see that set I wonder how many people got hurt navigating/throwing rocks into/”designing” the apocalyptic junkyard. Looks incredibly stupid.

  52. M.A.F. says:

    I still see him as Tommy from Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

  53. NEENAZEE says:

    Ahahahaha… I’m still laughing. His artistic pretentiousness fits her perfectly. Sparkles was a thing that had to happen. Kristen and Rob were thrown together for years at a time, involved in a movie franchise that is a life force unto itself, there was no way they could’ve avoided it. But it never felt right to me. This.. now this is a match that fits perfectly. They can get dolled up in their all-black ensembles and fingerless gloves and talk about how superior they are to other actors and… well, Ahahahahaha……

  54. lisa2 says:

    She really is very pretty. Beautiful eyes.
    I like this look. Hate the gloves though.
    Honestly.. I don’t care who she is dating or not.

  55. Lux says:

    I’m sorry but there’s no way Kristen is the “smart bookworm type.”

  56. Lexi says:

    At least if she was with him, she wouldnt be cheating again on sparkles

  57. Side-Eye says:

    This side always looks sickly. And I’m so sick of these gay rumors that randomly pop up and are defended so passionately by people who somehow have all this inside information. Like wtf who cares.
