One of the biggest stories of the year has been the split between Kristen Stewart and ‘Twilight’ actor Robert Pattinson. The couple had been together for over a decade and married for a brief period in 2014, but now that they’re not together, the world is wondering, what will their future bring? In an exclusive interview with Vogue, Stewart revealed that while she is OK, she and Pattinson are not over yet.
The actress told the magazine, “I don’t know what [our] relationship is going to look like in a few months, or a year…It’s too soon to tell. I’m not looking for a committed relationship right now, though I would like to find one.”
Stewart also talked about why she and Pattinson broke up, saying that they were just “too different” and that their priorities were “shifted” during their time apart. The 26-year-old actress also said, “I still love him, but I want to be with someone who really cares about me.”
As much as we would all like to see Stewart and Pattinson back together, it seems that their time apart was beneficial. In addition to getting to know herself more, Stewart said that she grew as a person during her time away from her ex. She also told Vogue that she would “never say never” when asked about remarrying, because she is “not built that way.”
The Reason For Their Split
One of the reasons for their split was rooted in the fact that Stewart’s star was rising while Pattinson’s was on the decline. According to Vogue, the actress has found her footing in Hollywood and is determined to make the most of it. She said, “I’ve always been driven by my work, and it was starting to feel more like attracting and maintaining some kind of attention.”
Stewart also credited the success of her documentary film, Stormy Weather, with putting her on the map. The film explored her relationship with Robert Pattinson and received rave reviews from critics. Stewart’s determination to continue making films is what led her to want to break off from her acting partner. She told Vogue, “I definitely feel like I’m in a position of strength…I can do a lot more than I ever could as an actress.”
Where Do They Go From Here?
While Stewart has found her place in Hollywood, Pattinson continues to be plagued by bad press and tabloid headlines. The actress also told Vogue that she believes that the media has a role to play in helping their relationship move forward. She said, “I don’t want to keep running from tabloid journalists. It would be nice if the press would leave us alone.”
Pattinson and Stewart have a lot to discuss and clear the air about, but it seems that their first step is to take a break from each other. At the very least, they should be open to the idea of repairing their relationship. For now, it’s best that they both take a step back and try to figure out what is best for them. So, while we wait for them to come back together, let’s all hope that they both continue to prosper as individuals and that their fame does not affect their personal life. Love them or hate them, we can’t help but admire their ambition and perseverance.
