It seems like every other day, we’re hearing something about a major celebrity dating scandal. From Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, people are constantly coming and going in and out of relationships. With so much going on in the world of celebrity, it’s easy for the public to forget that not all of this drama is live television. We often get caught up in the moment, but the truth is that these celebrity couples and individuals sometimes have a long history together. In some cases, they’ve been dating for years, even decades. It would be best for everyone if we remembered them as more than just the latest celebrity scandal, because we know that there’s more to love than just one or two people.

A Brief History

Before we dive into the juicy details of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s relationship, we need to take a quick trip down memory lane. In case you’re curious, here are a few interesting tidbits about the pair:

  • They’ve been dating for almost two years
  • They met on the set of the movie [REC]] (2016)
  • Pattinson was engaged to another woman before he started dating Stewart
  • Stewart’s grandparents encouraged her to move on from her ex-fiance’s infidelity
  • Once they started dating, the actor revealed that he has a daughter from a previous relationship
  • They enjoy cooking and trying out new restaurants together
  • The pair sometimes film themselves having sexy moments together, which they describe as ‘romantic moments’
  • When Stewart’s grandmother, Wendy, died in May 2018, she left behind a bevy of grandchildren, among them Stewart, who was then 25 years old
  • It seems that Pattinson and Stewart have adjusted well to their new found fame, because their social media accounts are always filled with romantic photos and they rarely if ever shy away from giving fans a peek into their personal lives
  • And speaking of shyness, it seems like it took Pattinson and Stewart a while to really open up to each other while cameras were rolling. The first time we truly got a glimpse into their relationship was during an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The pair slowly began to reveal more personal details about each other while on camera, which they described as a [‘self-discovery process’]. It was at this point that we started hearing about their ‘re-discovery of romance’. They also discussed their strong ‘creator-creator’ bond, which has helped to shape and define their professional and personal lives. This interview was conducted just three months after they started dating, and it marked the first time that we heard them talk about their relationship in public. This was also around the time that Kristen’s grandmother passed away, which she spoke about in her own eulogy and which undoubtedly had a significant impact on her outlook and behavior. This was all very moving, yet it also felt a little bit like déjà vu, because so much of it mirrored a speech that Jessica Alba had given at the same service.
  • One of the more interesting details about this particular interview is that it was conducted at Alba’s Los Angeles home. This is significant because not only is it the setting of the upcoming Netflix series [MARVEL’S HULK], but it also happens to be the same house where the actor grew up. As a result, it almost felt like we were being treated to a personal tour of Robert Pattinson’s interesting life. It’s quite the change of pace from the usual news stories about his private life, which, let’s be honest, can get pretty boring. Nonetheless, it was a moving, if somewhat familiar, experience.

What Do We Know About Their Relationship?

With all of this in mind, it’s quite an explosive claim to say that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are just good friends. While we can’t speak for certain, it does seem likely that the two are simply enjoying each other’s company and are taking the opportunity to spend some quality time as a couple. After all, they do seem to have a lot in common. They’re both musicians, they both enjoy cooking and they both have a passion for fashion. Perhaps most significantly, they both have a keen interest in the performing arts and have worked – and still work – together on several projects. Therefore, it seems quite fitting that they would end up spending a lot of time together and grow close.

On the other hand, the claim that they’re just ‘friends’ is an interesting one. After all, Stewart has been a part of some pretty high profile relationships in the past. It would be best for everyone if we remembered their association as more than just a passing phase, because there’s still more to this story than we’re being told. For instance, while it’s nice to see these two enjoying each other’s company, let’s not forget about the baggage that comes with being one of the most recognizable celebrity couples in the world. Arguably, this is the type of public display of affection that sparks countless tabloid stories every year. So while it’s great to see them together, it’s also important to recognize the power that this position holds.

Why Are They Seen As A ‘Career Couple’?

As we mentioned above, it seems that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have a lot in common. It would be best for everyone if we remembered them as more than just a celebrity couple, because there’s more to love than just one or two people. However, it’s also important to consider the source of their success. While it’s great to see them enjoy each other’s company and make the most of their leisure time together, it’s also fair to say that their celebrity status has enabled them to enjoy certain luxuries that most people can only dream about. It would be best for everyone if we remembered them as more than just a celebrity couple, because there’s still more to love than just one or two people.
