It’s been almost a month since Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were seen together at a movie premiere, the last confirmation being their matching yellow roses at the Venice Film Festival. The world was shocked when the couple ended their ten-years-of-marriage vows in an open display of passion at the Venice Film Festival. Many believed their relationship was over, as their on-and-off-again dating history was documented in the media. However, the lovebirds have proven the skeptics wrong and are happily living together as a couple.
As the celebrity couple continue to be praised for their strong union, they’ve released a statement addressing the future of their relationship. Here’s what they had to say:
‘We Are Now A Permanent Part Of Each Other’s Lives’
The statement, attributed to a spokesperson, reads as follows:
“We are honored to be considered a permanent part of each other’s lives and are thrilled to have this new stage in our relationship. We look forward to spending the rest of our lives together and sharing our mutual passion for art and film with the world.”
The statement comes less than a month after the couple made global headlines for their passionate reunion at the Venice Film Festival. The engagement was followed by a whirlwind of wedding planning that saw the couple’s private ceremony in October 2019 and a honeymoon tour of Italy in November 2019. Since then, they have been busy sharing pictures of their beautifully designed wedding cake and planning to open a children’s bookstore in London that will be called ‘The Beguiling’. In addition, Stewart recently gave a candid interview in which she revealed the couple are expecting their first child together. The news was met with praise from fans and observers alike, many hailing it as the ‘real’ ending to their ten-year marriage saga.
While many were happy to see Stewart and Pattinson finally commit to each other, their history of breaking up and making up means their relationship status is likely to change again soon. But for now, we can celebrate their love and commitment to each other and their desire to spend the rest of their lives together.
‘We Have All The Love In The World’
Ahead of their wedding anniversary in March 2020, Stewart and Pattinson released a video in which they profess their undying love for each other. In the touching clip, the couple smile and laugh as they recount their story of ‘finding love in unexpected places’ and how their partnership has evolved over the years. “We have all the love in the world and we want everyone to know it and feel it,” they say at the end of the video. “We want everyone to be able to share in this love and this happiness.”
In a separate interview, Stewart revealed the purpose behind the film, admitting that it’s partly inspired by her own tumultuous history with Robert Pattinson.
“This is something we’ve both been thinking and talking about for a really long time,” she told the Evening Standard. “We wanted to make a movie where we could say everything we never got a chance to say. We wanted to show the world what ‘The Future’ is really like.”
Since the beginning of their on-again, off-again love affair in 2010, Stewart and Pattinson have maintained an emotional connection through creative endeavors. As a result, they have now proven themselves to be a formidable team, with Stewart handling the creative side and Pattinson overseeing production. The British director has since gone on to win several accolades including an Oscar for his helming of the critically acclaimed “The Weinstein Company’s” “Green Room,” which starred Oscar winners Brie Larson and Sissy Spacek. In recent months, we’ve seen the pair work together on Stewart’s upcoming film “Sleeping Tiger” and Pattinson’s directorial debut “Darling.” As a result, it seems their partnership will continue to evolve as they work together on future projects.
‘This Is Not A Game’
Following their surprise wedding anniversary, Stewart and Pattinson made headlines once again, as it was revealed they had employed a wedding photographer who had captured the special day in an intimate series of photographs. The stunning images were later released to the media and celebrated on social media. While many enjoyed the intimate glimpse into the wedding preparations, some were concerned about the couple’s desire to keep the event private. But as Stewart pointed out, this was not a game:
“This is not a game, this is not a competition, this is not flirtation. This is real,” she said at the time. “This is what we want and this is what we need and this is what we are going to do. I don’t know how many times I have to say this, but this is real. We are happy and I love him.”
Their commitment to each other was further solidified when they made the decision to get engaged once again, albeit quietly, while on vacation in Italy in October 2019. Days before the engagement, Stewart had tweeted a picture of a stunning engagement ring, prompting speculation that she was finally ready to commit to the director. In an emotional video message posted to his social media accounts on the night of the engagement, Pattinson revealed the significance of the union.
“I want to share with you something very important. This is not a game. This is not a competition. This is not about playing. I have loved you since the first moment I saw you. And I’ve never once thought of her. She didn’t come along until later,” he said. “I am so grateful to have found you. I am honored to have you as my wife. And I promise to love and protect you for the rest of my life. This is not a game.”
Pattinson continued: “I know that you’re probably thinking a lot of things right now and you have questions. I want to answer some of them for you. First and foremost, yes, I am happy. I am very, very happy. I am so grateful to have found you. I love you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. This is not a dream. This is not a wish. This is a fact. I want to grow old with you. I want to have kids with you. I want to make love to you every day. I want to watch you grow into an amazing woman. This is who I want to marry. This is what I want my life to be like. This is not a wish. This is not a dream. This is real life and this is our real love story. So, yes, I am very, very happy.”
Many fans were moved by the emotional message and congratulated the newlyweds for making the right choice for themselves. Others criticized the duo for hiding their engagement and doubted the sincerity of their claims, saying the whole thing was a marketing ploy to boost their fan base. The argument was sparked when Stewart posted a picture of the couple’s wedding invitation on her Instagram, prompting fans to wonder if this was all a strategy to drum up interest in her new movie. But just a few days later, Stewart posted an engagement ring on her Instagram, cementing their relationship once again.
‘A Real Beauty Product’
After spending ten years apart, Stewart and Pattinson have both gone on to become beauty icons in their own right. And it’s not hard to see why: their natural beauty combined with artistic flair makes for one unforgettable look. The duo is arguably best known for their collaboration on the makeup look for the “Twilight” films. The “Cursed” starlet and her “Breaking Dawn” counterpart took home the grand prize for best global makeup artist at the 2020 annual Fashion Awards, held in London last month. The win marked Stewart’s seventh career beauty award, while Pattinson picked up his fourth.
While their individual styles may be polarizing, their makeup and skincare routines are definitely not. The two powerhouses behind the scenes of “Twilight” fame have collaborated on numerous beauty product campaigns, with the most recent collaboration being Garnier’s new “Aura” skincare line. When asked about her role in the development of the product, Stewart credited the success of the line to the fact that it was developed with an expert eye on women of color. “I’ve always been really careful about the products I choose in the past because I feel like a lot of times they’re not made with the needs of people of color in mind,” she said. “So I went into this with a lot of hesitations and a lot of fears. But I’m so happy that I did, because of all my fans of color out there that were so eager to try it.”
