One of the most talked-about celebrity couples this month has been Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. Since dating eight months ago, the pair have managed to stay fairly silent on the matter beyond their occasional Instagram posts, but with their relationship having recently been made public, it seems only right that we take a trip down memory lane and look at some of the very first celebrity photos of the star-crossed lovers.
The very first photos of Robert Pattinson as a couple were released in January 2016 and were featured on the cover of US Weekly. The couple were all smiles as they celebrated the New Year alongside fans outside their New York City apartment building. But just a few months later, the actor would be caught cheating on Stewart with model Jennifer Lawrence. Although the pair have remained friends since, their relationship was never truly repaired and in October 2019, they called it quits. Today, Pattinson is single and enjoying life away from the spotlight.
It’s been a rocky road for Kristen Stewart since her famous break-up with Robert Pattinson in February 2019. Since then, she’s had to deal with rumors of cheating, addiction, and emotional breakdowns, not to mention the intense media scrutiny that comes with being one of the most recognizable faces in show business. Although Stewart did manage to win an important domestic legal case against Harvey Weinstein in January 2020, the actress’ personal life has still taken a rather dark turn.
And yet, Stewart has always been a fighter, facing her problems head-on and determined to prove the naysayers wrong. Indeed, the 29-year-old began her comeback in earnest in March 2020 with the release of her eagerly anticipated music video for the Charli XCX song “Boys”—the first of many comeback clips and songs that are set to appear on Stewart’s upcoming music album. And just last week, the actress shared a video to Instagram, proudly announcing that she had just completed her first day of shooting for the upcoming Woody Allen film, which will be released in December 2020 and will be Allen’s first film since 2012’s Midnight in Paris. If you’d like to see more, here’s a roundup of some of the most memorable celebrity photos of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart from the past.
