After starring in Twilight, the young and upcoming Kristen Stewart has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The ‘Skins’ actress became known for her wild partying and risqué behaviour, which eventually caught the attention of the paparazzi. Since then, not a lot has gone unnoticed, including her brief relationship with Robert Pattinson.

So, what exactly is it about Kristen that got all the guys so hot under the collar? Let’s take a closer look.

Rough Beginnings

Kristen Stewart’s parents are British actors Robert and Elizabeth (Liz) Stewart. She has an older sister, Alice, and a younger brother, Will. For years, the family lived in London, before moving to Los Angeles, California when Kristen was 20. It was there that she built her career, starring in several major motion pictures andTV shows. Most recently, she was seen in Summit’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show where she was wearing a strapless gown and sporting some very suggestive nipple piercings.

As you may have guessed, Kristen has always been a bit of a wild child. She began stripping for money when she was a teenager and continued to party with her friends until dawn. It wasn’t long before she was noticed by the paparazzi, who began capturing her outrageous antics on film. For many years, she was best known for her part in the ‘Twilight’ series. Since then, she has become a style icon and has racked up a number of famous boyfriends, including the British actor Robert Pattinson. When they dated, they were often photographed together, which made her career as an actress very much about to take off. Unfortunately, their dating life was not very compatible and they broke up in July 2014.

The Rise Of The ‘Skins’ Actress

It was during their brief courtship that Robert Pattinson introduced Kristen Stewart to the world. On December 31st 2013, Robert and Liz hosted an intimate dinner party at their home to celebrate New Year’s Eve. While some guests were seated at tables, others were free to mingle and meet the new couple. It was here that the media began to speculate about their possible future together. Within days, magazine covers and blogs were featuring the couple’s romantic story, culminating in their engagement interview with the French magazine, Closer. Since then, they have continued to be linked as a couple and Robert has even proposed to Kristen, which she later accepted. But despite all the romantic attention, Stewart has maintained that their relationship is strictly physical. “I don’t expect anybody to believe that I’m in love with Rob. I’m not,” she said during an interview in 2015. “What I want is attention.”

Since their relationship began to receive more coverage, rumours began to spread about Kristen Stewart’s past. It was reported that she had previously been in a relationship with Paris Jackson’s younger brother, Nicholas. The two met when Nicholas was 16 and Kristen was 14. According to witnesses, Nicolas would often spend time alone with Kristen and give her the attention that she craved. Eventually, they began dating, which ended when Christina Aguilera heard about their budding romance and intervened, ending the two teenagers’ burgeoning relationship. Since then, Kristen has been linked to several high-profile men, including Robert Pattinson. But she has always played the field and has never been faithful to anyone. In October 2014, she was photographed kissing and holding hands with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. Rumours quickly surfaced that the pair were an item, which they later denied.

A Hollywood Love Story

After dating for a couple of years, Robert Pattinson proposed to Kristen Stewart at a candlelit picnic on Sunday, July 15th 2015. The 39-year-old actor reportedly spent several months planning the romantic event, taking his fiancé on a private tour of the locations where many of his best-known films were shot. Their engagement was confirmed through social media. Shortly after the news broke, fans began queuing up outside the couple’s residence, hoping to catch a glimpse of the happy couple.

It was an over-the-top display of affection, which prompted many media outlets to ask whether or not the couple were truly committed to each other. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kristen confessed that she still hadn’t decided what she wants out of life, but that she knew what she didn’t want: “I don’t want to be married to anybody. I don’t want to have kids. I want to have fun.” She also said that she hoped her career would help her achieve her ultimate goal of independence. With her recent engagement to the famous actor came a new, glamorous lifestyle that Kristen was more than happy to indulge in.

Sobering Up

While some of Kristen Stewart’s past relationships has been very scandalous, she has maintained a relatively sober lifestyle. She has rarely been photographed drinking or doing drugs. One of the reasons for this is that she has a daughter, Matilda, who was born in 2011. The actress has been very open about her struggle with addiction and has often spoken about how she wants her life to be dedicated to her family. In 2012, she checked into a treatment centre, after struggling with alcohol and prescription medication for several years. She later attended several more rehab clinics and has been doing her best to stay clean. Although Robert Pattinson was her first real love and her engagement to the actor was front-page news, it was not until after her treatment that she was ready to start over again. In 2013, Kristen’s representative said that she was “determined to prove she can be trusted with her own happiness”, which led her to give up drinking and attending drug parties. Since then, the actress has been enjoying a stable and somewhat quieter life, which has made her a beloved mother figure to her fans. Her commitment to sobriety was even recognised when she received the Drug Abuse Warning Sign in the shape of a heart.

In early 2017, it was reported that Kristen had split from her long-term partner, Vincent Kartheiser. The former Mad Men star confirmed the news and said that he had grown tired of the actress’ “lifestyle of excess”. However, he did not rule out the possibility of reconciling with her at some point in the future.

A New Beginning

In early 2018, it was announced that Kristen had been dating the Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, for several months. The couple first met when Kristen interviewed Sanders for Vogue. During the interview, the director complimented Stewart’s beauty and charisma, which she took as a sign to contact him. The two began dating soon after and soon became inseparable. It was not long before news of their whirlwind romance made headlines. Sanders even proposed to Kristen on New Year’s Eve, which she happily accepted.

As with all of Kristen’s relationships, there has been much speculation about whether or not the pair are committed to each other. In December 2018, Sanders proposed again and this time, Kristen said yes. The actress has been very open about her happiness and said that she hoped her career would provide her with the freedom to explore new opportunities, both personally and professionally. She also enjoys being a mother and said that she wanted to be a “really good mom” to her baby girl, Matilda. Although they began dating when she was still under contract to Lionsgate, the release of her forthcoming film, Winchester, has been marked by the director as a significant step towards her being able to focus on motherhood. “I’m proud to call myself a single mom,” she said in a statement. “It has been a while since I’ve been able to focus on my career, but I’m excited to finally be back and able to make the most of this time.”

It’s fair to say that as one of the most famous and beloved young actresses of her generation, it’s only a matter of time before Kristen Stewart runs out of famous boyfriends to shag and romances to tell the world about. But at least she’s good at what she does, which is undoubtedly something.
