If you’re looking for a new love interest for the holiday season, you’ve probably already considered Robert Pattinson. The Twilight star has been dating Kristen Stewart since their engagement in 2014, and their good looks, charm and fame have made them an item to watch this holiday season.
You’d think that this union would make for one beautiful couple, but it seems as though their on-screen chemistry may not be real off-screen chemistry. The Daily Mail released a bombshell report earlier this week suggesting that Stewart is secretly “despondent” over her engagement and is seeking “cheap thrills” from an “ego-massaging” celebrity. This is why, according to the Daily Mail, “she has turned to the comfort of a man who doesn’t hurt her feelings – namely, Robert Pattinson, her co-star from the Twilight franchise.”
The publication also noted that Stewart had previously considered other A-list men, including George Clooney and Jamie Dornan. However, as attractive as they may be, neither of these hunks possess the “dark and mysterious” aura that Stewart apparently finds so captivating.
Robert Pattinson And Batman Are Friends
While it’s true that Stewart and Pattinson are friends off-screen, it seems as though their relationship began after the fact. The handsome actor revealed that he’d never actually considered dating an actress before. In an interview with Vogue, he explained:
“I’ve always been very attracted to beautiful women. And then when I met Kristen, I didn’t really know what to make of it. She’s very independent, very strong-willed. So I wasn’t sure whether to treat her like a girlfriend or just like a friend.”
He also acknowledged that he and Stewart got along well during filming, even competing against each other for scenes:
“We’ve got a scene in Twilight where we’re in a boxing ring. And, um, we had to sort of box each other. And it was like, ‘Oh, no. It’s not how it looks. We’re really best friends.’ It was so strange. I didn’t know how to react.”
Does Stewart Find Reluctance In Falling In Love With A Famous Actor?
While it seems as though Stewart is enjoying the thrill of publicly throwing down the gauntlet for other men, she may not be fully comfortable with her decision to date a famous actor. For those who are curious, she has now made it very clear that she is indeed dating him, and they seem to be quite the item. She even went so far as to share an Instagram photo of herself in a stunning dress with the caption, “Happy Valentine’s Day.”
However, in an interview with Vogue, Stewart acknowledged feelings of hesitation and stated:
“I’m always kind of hesitant about relationships because I don’t want to get too far ahead of myself. It’s easy to get distracted. It’s easy to get carried away. It’s easy to lose yourself. I don’t want to do that.”
She went on to explain that this is why she prefers to keep her personal life as private as possible:
“I guess it’s hard for people to understand. Like, I don’t want to be one of those girls who is out there constantly, you know, taking selfies and posting about their relationships and whatnot. It’s not my style.”
As someone who has experienced both sides of this relationship, we can certainly understand Stewart’s hesitation. It’s not that she wants to keep her personal life private; it’s that she wants to keep her personal life as it is. She doesn’t want it to change because she’s not comfortable being seen with someone else. And who can blame her? After all, when you’re faced with choosing between a romantic relationship and your professional career, which do you think is more important to you?
The Pros And Cons Of Dating A Celebrity
Whether or not to date a celebrity is a decision that many women have to make. And for those who choose to do so, there are several pros and cons that they need to consider. Here are just a few:
On the plus side, dating a celebrity can give you the chance to meet people who are influential and famous. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even attempt to move into show business yourself. Aspiring actors and actresses can often find work in film and television. The downside is that if you’re not careful, you could end up falling victim to an ego stroke. And what is an ego stroke, you may ask? It’s when a famous person invests so much of their time in caring for and supporting a non-famous person in their life, that they begin to think of that person as a piece of themselves. In these cases, the famous person essentially “ego massages” the lesser known person, stroking their ego and making them feel special and important.
Ultimately, it’s all about how much you’re willing to give up in order to be with someone special. Are you willing to compromise your ambitions and dreams in order to build a family? Are you willing to let your personal life be invaded by the paparazzi? What you decide is what you’ll get.
At the end of the day, the choice is all about you. If you decide that you want a celebrity, then you may have to deal with the cons that come along with it. But if you decide that you don’t want a celebrity, then you may have to deal with the pain of being alone for the rest of your life. Which do you think is more important to you?
