Most people wouldn’t consider Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson to be similar in height. While Stewart is considered to be one of the most stunning women in Hollywood, Pattinson is often credited with being the “bad boy” of Hollywood, known for his controversial private life. But despite their height differences, the couple’s professional and personal lives are inextricably linked.
They’ve Been Spotted Photographing Each Other
It all began when Stewart starred in the movie adaptation of the Broadway play The Most Eligible Bachelor in 2008. In the film, Stewart plays Christine, a former television reporter who auditions for a role on a reality dating show modeled after the Most Eligible Bachelor franchise, The Bachelor. While watching the movie, it’s easy to understand why tabloids dubbed Stewart “the new Blake” – a blend of Blake Lively and Elizabeth Taylor. Standing in front of the trailer for The Most Eligible Bachelor, one could easily envision Stewart as Elizabeth Taylor, and Pattinson as Blake Lively.
The height difference between Blake Lively and Elizabeth Taylor is five inches. Given how close Stewart and Pattinson’s characters are in the movie – both played by Kristen Stewart – it’s no wonder why they resembled each other so much.
While The Most Eligible Bachelor didn’t exactly set the box office on fire, it did score two iconic moments that are now part of Hollywood’s vocabulary. The first is when Pattinson’s character proposes to Stewart’s character, and the second is when Stewart’s character turns down his proposal, deciding instead to pursue a career in journalism.
They’ve Been Seen Holding Hands And Spying On Each Other Through Spy Cameras
It would be remiss of us not to point out that Stewart and Pattinson have been spotted holding hands and gazing into each other’s eyes from a distance. The first evidence of their star-making connection came in 2011, when they were both named to the Time 100 list, a ranking of the world’s most influential people. Since then, their relationship has been documented in countless paparazzi photos.
While holding hands and gazing into each other’s eyes may be a classic pose for Hollywood’s most cherished couples, it’s not something they’ve always done. Before 2011, Stewart was mostly known for her on-screen persona as a quirky, independent young woman, which is perhaps why she was one of the few celebrities to openly support then-presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in the 2016 election.
They’ve Both Been Named To The New York Times’ Most Influential List
If you’ve been following celebrity news for any length of time, you may remember that both Stewart and Pattinson were named to the New York Times‘ Most Influential List in 2015. This is a list of the most influential people in society, as determined by the New York Times. If you’re wondering why these two individuals are on this list, it’s because they’ve both been exceptionally influential in their respective fields. But beyond their influence, we can see how their relationship has influenced culture.
While it’s not necessarily unusual for siblings to be placed on the same influential list, it’s quite a unique achievement for a pair of exes, especially given the fact that Stewart and Pattinson have rarely, if ever, held hands as a couple. But that hasn’t stopped their public from showering them with romantic gestures, from holding hands to staring into each other’s eyes and beyond.
They’ve Both Been In The News For All The Wrong Reasons
When it comes to our favorite celebrity couple, it’s hard to avoid hearing about the troubles they’ve been in. As we’ve established, these two have been in the news for all the wrong reasons, but it seems they can’t stay away from the headlines. Here are some of the worst times that Stewart and Pattinson have been in the news:
2016: Campaign Donations, Speculation About Pregnancies, And Accusations Of Spousal Abuse
It all started with a simple Instagram post in which Stewart accused Pattinson of domestic abuse, citing the paparazzi as proof that he’s been harassing her for a while. The celebrity couple has yet to respond publicly to these allegations, but given how long it’s been since we’ve heard from them, it’s safe to assume that they have a response in progress. We’ll have to wait and see what it is.
2015: Accusations Of Tax Evasion, Paternity Fraud, And More
Another allegation surfaced a few months later, this time from Stewart. In December 2015, she published a lengthy article in which she questioned Pattinson’s paternity, claiming that tests suggested he was actually her half-brother. The actor has always denied these allegations, but given how poorly his relationship with Stewart has deteriorated, perhaps he’s looking for ways to finally prove to the world that he’s not the father of her children.
2014: Break-Up, Reconciliation, And Back To Court For Custody
The two have been spotted holding hands and gazing intently at each other in public, but their on-screen chemistry didn’t translate into real-life romance. In 2014, while promoting their movie Midnight in Paris, they decided to end their six-year relationship. Though they tried to make it work, it was evident that they’d grown apart. Since the split, they’ve both moved on with their lives, appearing in public only when they need to promote their respective projects.
They’ve Both Been In The News For All The Right Reasons
Despite the negative headlines, it’s important to remember the good times that Stewart and Pattinson have had. Without getting into too much detail, let’s just say that the two have been in the news for all the right reasons. As we’ve established, Stewart and Pattinson have been on this list for a while, and it’s not just because they’ve been in the movies. Here are some of the best times that Stewart and Pattinson have been in the news:
2013: Marriage Proposal, New Baby, And A Golden Globe Nomination
The news outlet Us Weekly published what it called the “13 Most Romantic Celebrity Proposes” in 2013. The gallery included a photo of Edward Cullen, Jacob Black, and John Doe, each proposing to different women. But one of the most romantic proposals came from Robert Pattinson, who popped the question to Stewart during the opening ceremony of the London Olympics. It was such a touching moment, and it seemed to be the culmination of months of romance. The pair got engaged the next day, and it was announced that they’d be exchanging vows at London’s St. George’s Chapel in July 2014.
It was an unbelievable year for Stewart and Pattinson. Not only did they get hitched, but her cinematic career took off, with several high profile roles. Not only did she land a Golden Globe nomination for her supporting role in the black comedy Clouds Of Sils Maria, but she also won an Academy Award for Best Actress, becoming only the second person to ever win back-to-back Oscars for Best Actress. Most impressively, Stewart joined the exclusive club of actors who’ve been nominated for an Oscar for playing the same character (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Katharine Hepburn, and Vanessa Redgrave).
While it’s easy to see why tabloids dubbed 2014 the “Year of Kristen,” it was actually a banner year for the Golden Globe-nominated actress. Not only did she marry the handsome Englishman in July, but she also had a baby girl with him in December. Little Stormy Cloud was born in London and quickly made her way into the Guinness World Records book for being the smallest baby ever to make a grand entrance. Given her small stature, we can imagine that little Stormy Cloud gets mistaken for a mini-me several times a day. But what mother wouldn’t love to have a mini-me?), though we’re sure that being mistaken for a copycat is one of the last things her mother would want for her. Fortunately, Stormy Cloud isn’t overly concerned with her looks – she prefers dressing up in clothes and hats that her mother has stored in her wardrobe, which we can only assume has some very embarrassing outfits in it.
