Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have kept their fame with the help of social media, but these days they don’t spend much time on Twitter or Instagram. It’s been a while since they’ve graced our Instagram moments with their celebrity. But even the media can’t keep up with the incredible story of these two Hollywood power couple. From breaking up to making up, celebrating their successes and dealing with their tragedies, here’s a quick reference guide to everything you need to know about Stewart and Pattinson.
It all started with that infamous photograph of Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian at the 2006 Rose Bowl. The photo was leaked online and became extremely popular, even though it was clear that the two had only been poking fun at the media and public’s obsession with their relationship. Three years later, after spending a great deal of time in hiding (thanks in part to Stewart’s pregnancy), they announced their engagement and a year later were married. In April 2018, the couple had their first child, a daughter named Kaia. They share their lives together in an idyllic setting with their two dogs and an abundance of wildlife.
Their Upcoming Projects
The couple has kept busy since their break-up in 2016. They both starred in Pattinson’s directorial debut, the drama Hidden Figures, and he is also one of the producers of the upcoming Ava DuVermuis-directed comedy-drama Blockers. Stewart will also be seen in the comedy-drama Can You Guess What Liza Wished
The pair have also been busy working on their joint project, a collection of short stories entitled Short Stories. According to reports, it will be a “mature” collection that explores themes such as fame and fortune and the influence they have over others. The author of one of the stories, “The Finest Kind of Game,” will be Lena Dunham, the writer and creator of the groundbreaking television series Girls. Dunham will write and executive produce the eight-episode Short Stories along with Jenji Kohan, the creator of Netflix’s golden girl series, Orange is the New Black.
While Stewart found fame and popularity thanks to her relationship with Trump, it was Pattinson who eventually became an international movie star. The British actor’s breakout performance came in the form of a romantic lead in the indie film Twinkle, Twinkle, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007. He followed this up with a string of blockbusters, thanks in part to his close relationship with director David Lynch. His performance in the 2009 film The Young Victoria earned him an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. He has been nominated for an Academy Award five times, but so far he has only won once, for Best Actor in the 2014 film The Walking Dead. He has gone on to play supporting roles in numerous high-profile movies, often alongside Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Taylor. In April 2018, the actor was chosen to play James Bond in the next film, which of course he declined. He is currently filming the highly anticipated follow-up to The Walking Dead, titled the Final Season. This will be his fifth collaboration with showrunner Angela Kang, following 2017’s The Sinner or the 2019 film adaptation of the Broadway musical Wicked.
Since her split from Pattinson, Stewart has kept a relatively low profile. She maintained an active presence on Instagram, primarily posting photos of herself and her family. The actress has not publicly commented on Trump’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election, however, she has said that she feels “very lucky” to have been in a position to help promote certain causes. She has also spoken about her support for Bernie Sanders and his wife, Jane, during the 2016 presidential election. Through the Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign, Stewart has become more active in politics. She has endorsed several candidates, including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and she even appeared in a campaign advertisement for 2020 candidate Michael Bloomberg.
Where Are They Now?
It’s been almost four years since Trump and Stewart’s split, and while she has kept a relatively low profile, her relationship with the president has not. She did, however, collaborate with the Trump-owned magazine, Town & Country, in 2018, contributing fashion pieces for the magazine’s digital platforms. Since their break-up, Stewart and Pattinson have remained extremely private and seem to prefer to stay out of the spotlight. According to reports, they currently live in a “tiny” house in Beverly Hills with their two dogs and a cat.
On a more serious note, Stewart and Pattinson have both been very vocal about their support for various social causes, which has also earned them a dedicated following. Stewart has spoken about her love for animals and has been a passionate advocate for various animal rights groups. In 2015, she became an animal rights ambassador for the Humane Society of the United States and, in 2018, she was named as one of the organization’s “Powerless Pals Who Are Changing the World.” In April of that same year, she was also named a “Protein Powerhouse” by the World Health Organization for her efforts to raise awareness about nutrition and diet and her advocacy for plant-based diets. Pattinson has been vocal about his support for same-sex marriage, which was legalized in California in October 2018. He has also spoken out against Trump’s immigration ban and has been an ambassador for the Human Rights Campaign since 2016.
Even though the two have kept a low profile since their break-up, their influence in the media and on social media can’t be denied. And because of this, they remain incredibly relevant and popular figures in today’s Hollywood scene.
