Kristen Stewart ‘wanted’ to marry Robert Pattinson: ‘That was my first [love]‘

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart

I like to reminisce a lot about the summer of 2016 and how much fun that was, with all of the receipts and Tiddlebanging. But you know what was the gold-standard summer of gossip? 2012, the summer the brought nonstop gossip headlines and went out with a bang with Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson with her married director. Us Weekly got the photos and all hell broke loose for like a month straight. Remember how Rob had to promote a movie and he gave away his first interview to Jon Stewart at the Daily Show? It was a glorious mess of drama and Twihard meltdowns and so much more. I kind of wonder if we’ll ever really know that kind of pure gossip craziness again.

Anyway, even back then, I truly believed that Kristen and Rob were REALLY together. So many people claimed it was all a showmance or that the cheating/break-up scandal was timed for promotion. But… Rob and Kristen were really together. And she really did break his heart. But at least she’s not petty about it years later. Kristen is currently promoting several movies, and she agreed to a Howard Stern interview. Stern asked her a lot about Rob and their love. Some quotes:

On Robert Pattinson: Kristen says it’s “weird” being honest about her relationship with Pattinson, and that she’s never really been allowed to “say what happened…Because I was so self-conscious about seeming like an attention-seeker. We were together for years, that was my first [love]. He’s the best.”

Whether Robsten was a fauxmance: “You really think at this point, after all these years, that’s how I live my life?”

How her dislike of the paparazzi ruined some of the loved up moments with Rob: Stewart says they wanted to “keep it ours” and struggled over whether to share their romance openly or “put it on lock.” But “… You deprive yourself of so many experiences. We didn’t walk down the street holding hands because we were like, ‘We don’t wanna give it to ’em.’ But then, we didn’t get to walk down the street holding hands, and it sucked.”

Whether she would have married Rob: “I wanted to … yeah…I don’t know, I’m not a super-duper traditionalist, but at the same time … every relationship I’ve ever been in, I thought that was it. I’ve never really been the most casual person.”

Whether she’s in love right now: “Yeah…the answer is yes,” Stewart confirms, adding that she’ll “absolutely” propose. “I can’t f–king wait.”

Re: the proposal – she’s currently dating Dylan Meyer and I don’t think Dylan should expect a ring any time soon, you know? Kristen cycles through girlfriends every six to nine months or thereabouts. I’m sure she deeply loves all of the women she’s dated. But I just doubt she’s going to propose to her current lady any time soon.

As for what she says about Rob… I think she’s being honest? Rob was her first love, she adored him and then she sabotaged the relationship because… sometimes people are young and dumb. She’s moved on and so has he. I hope they do think back on that time together with fondness and nostalgia though, because they really were entertaining.

    she looked incredible on that press tour. that is when her style became more personal.

  2. Chaine says:

    She sounds like she’s had the time to reflect and is in a good place with herself. I wish celebs didn’t always cater to Howard Stern though.

    • Ann says:

      I love that celebrities cater to Howard. He gets people to open up. Not everyone can do that. I get people not like him though. I’m still a fan. People I don’t normally find interesting become interesting when he interviews him. Case in point this interview. I find KS to be so blah but Howard got her chatting and it was a good interview.

  3. Devon says:

    She was so open with her interview on Stern.

  4. Valiantly Varnished says:

    She got vilified for what happened between her and Rupert Sanders but no one seemed to want to talk about the f-cked up power dynamic of a married 40-something man being with his 22 year old film star.

  5. DS9 says:

    I do believe she loved him. I believe they loved each other.

    And I believe that love isn’t this forever ever concept we believe it to be. We are all developing and growing, by leaps and bounds especially in our twenties. And sometimes a certain love is good for where we are in that moment, but not good forever and that’s what happened to these two.

    And society makes it really hard to leave a relationship that isn’t working/isn’t the right forever if there’s no one to blame, if you can’t put your finger on why.

    • DaisySharp says:

      Boy do I relate to this! Absolutely.

    • Alyse says:

      Yup, this

    • Case says:

      Totally agree. I find a strange standard where friendships are expected to last forever as well. I recently had to break things off with a friend from college. We’d grown apart and she has some personality issues that just are really not compatible with where I’m at in life. And when I tell people here and there that we’re not speaking at the moment but ended things in a civil place, they’re still like “it’s just so sad! You were such good friends!” Yes, we were! We were once very close and she played an important part in my life. That doesn’t mean we need to stay friends forever if it’s no longer serving one or both of us.

  6. Sayrah says:

    I can’t believe she has never talked about that time on the record. But I’m not surprised Howard got her to do it. He’s the best.

  7. Lucy says:

    I believe her too. This was a very nice interview, actually.

  8. joro says:

    The Twilight and Robsten era was great for gossip. I was such a fan during and it was so much fun to follow along.

    I’m glad Kristen is finally able to share her feeling about the whole thing. They were a good couple and it sucks that it ended so badly. It seems that the time has cleared old wounds. Rob and Kristen are still in touch and speak well about each other.

  9. MCV says:

    I Will never forget the day the photos if her and that guy came out. It was CRAZY.
    Trully a day for the ages… And her statement oh man

  10. Tiffany says:

    But she was with Michael Angarano for several years, and yes, there was overlap with her relationship with Pattinson.

    Kristen has a pattern is what I am saying. She is never alone and there is always makes sure she has someone else lined up.

    • Annie says:

      Absolutely! All of Kristen’s relationships overlap. Poor Michael though, she’s calling Rob her first love as if Michael wasn’t her boyfriend for 4 years. She did him so dirty. Kristen is a serial cheater and she never admits to it. All her relationships overlap. All of them. Soko the French singer that she used to date accused her of cheating too. On Snapchat. She never takes responsibility.

  11. BANANIE says:

    I don’t think her not being petty now makes up for her breaking his heart and being a cheater. If she loved him she wouldn’t have cheated on him.

  12. Annie says:

    If you look for promotional pictures right after that scandal broke, Kristen lost a bunch of weight. She was promoting a movie too and she looked awful. She was stick skinny, scary skinny. I actually felt bad for her because you could tell this was eating her. The people who said this was a scandal for publicity really don’t know all the roles she lost because of this. She lost at least 5 projects. Including a big film with Ben Affleck. He dropped out immediately because of this, then Will Smith joined. Then Kristen was dropped and Margot Robbie replaced her.
    But I stopped feeling bad for her because she never took responsibility for anything, and one time she even said she didn’t regret it. She didn’t feel sorry. She broke Rob’s heart and helped break a home but she said she didn’t feel bad about it. She didn’t care. Now she’s saying she didn’t even have sex with that man. Like, please. I don’t know a single marriage that ends over some kissing. Robert himself would have forgiven some kissing. He worshipped Kristen. This was a full blown affair and even the director’s wife had some suspicions. And even if they didn’t have sex, emotional cheating is still a thing. That happened too. They were definitely involved.
    Kristen has always tried to paint this as a dumb single moment in time. Like that’s the extent of the affair. But the paparazzo who took the pictures said that UsWeekly had been getting some tips that Kristen was sleeping with her married director. He had been trailing her for like 10 days and nothing. On the day that he was going to give up, he took these pictures. People knew. And that’s my gripe with Kristen. She doesn’t care. She doesn’t take responsibility.
