If you follow celebrities, you know that Hollywood is currently obsessed with love triangles. High-profile relationships that were supposed to be kept private are now being splashed across the media, and there seems to be no end in sight.
But while other relationships have faded into the background, the story of Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner has stood out amongst the chaos. The Twilight stars have been long-estranged since finishing their movie franchise in 2016, but they’ve made a glorious comeback by documenting their rekindled friendship on Instagram. Now that they’re back together, fans are curious about what will happen next. Here, we’ll discuss the power of love and how to make it work for you.
Their Transformation Is Inspirational
When Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner first decided to get back together, it wasn’t supposed to be staged. After completing their Twilight franchise, the actors wanted to take a break from their busy schedules and focus on their mental health. They explained their reasoning in an emotional Instagram post in December 2019:
“Being away from each other for so long was really tough. It wasn’t easy to spend so much time alone with our own thoughts and feelings. We both missed being together, and we knew that spending time apart wouldn’t do either of us any good. So, a few months back, we decided to give it a try, and we slowly started to see each other again. It was scary, trying to build a relationship from scratch, but we both really wanted to change for the better. We’re both aware of our past mistakes and we want to be a better version of ourselves for the people and animals around us. We want to make them proud of us and show them that they can rely on us to always be there for them. We want to be the best possible brothers and sisters that our parents could ever imagine. We love them and we want to let them know that we’re doing everything we can to deserve their trust. We want to show everyone that we’re not ashamed of who we are, but proud of what we’ve accomplished and are continuing to accomplish. We want to be an inspiration to people who are struggling as well, to know that if they can believe in love at first sight, then there’s no reason why we can’t, too. We want to share our love with the world, and let anyone who’s willing to listen, know how much we care. We want to be best friends forever,” concluded Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
Their Rekindled Friendship Is Inspirational
Whether you believe in magic or not, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner’s story is proof that anything is possible. Despite all the setbacks that they’ve faced, they’ve stayed true to each other and worked hard to improve their lives and the lives of those around them. Their decision to give it a try was both brave and selfless, and their entire story is an example of the power of love. It’s an inspiration to those who are looking for love as well as those who are seeking to be better persons.
On What To Look Forward To
Once the dust settled from their decision to reconnect, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner started to see each other more frequently. They’ve been inseparable ever since, traveling the world together with frequent vacation days in between. They’re both focused on their careers and have plenty of exciting projects in the works. While they’ve come a long way since their rocky beginnings as teenagers, they still have a lot to offer each other and the world. Taylor Lautner’s debut novel, For All You Know, co-written with his cousin (and Bella’s son) Charlie, hit #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List this year, while Robinson Crusoe, an island where they both visit, was voted #1 on TripAdvisor’s 2019 Traveler’s Top 10 list. Looking to the future, they want to expand their family and share their love with the world.
Love Triangle Or Relationship-Builders?
Before ending this article, let’s discuss one more thing about Hollywood’s current obsession with love triangles. Are Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner’s relationship a love triangle? Or is it more of a “relationship-building” exercise?
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight back in February, Robert Pattinson addressed this exact question. He said:
“I wouldn’t say it’s a triangle. I think it’s more of a process of getting to know somebody. It’s not like there’s some grand plan or scheme where we’ve gotta battle it out. It’s more about us gradually building a friendship and a camaraderie and a trust. And I think that’s what’s been so special about this whole thing, is that it’s not been about hurrying or trying to force it, it’s really been about spending time together and just knowing that we have each other’s backs and wanting to make sure that we’re both committed to this process,” he explained.
So, to recap, we’ve established that:
- Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner’s friendship is a wonderful example of the power of love
- Their transformation is inspirational
- Their renewed friendship is inspiring
- They want to share their love with the world.
- They want to be best friends forever.
- They don’t want to rush the process of getting to know each other better.
- They have a whole future ahead of them.
- They’ve come a long way and overcome enormous challenges.
- They don’t need to battle it out for supremacy.
- They’re here for each other and committed to helping each other succeed.
Now that we’ve reviewed what is, at least from a professional standpoint, the essence of the Twilight saga, we can rest assured that Bella and Edward never actually “happened”. They were simply a part of a brilliant writing and acting team’s brilliant interpretation of the literary work by William Shakespeare. We can also rest assured that the next Twilight movie will never be considered “definitive” due to the ever-changing landscape of technology and social media. It will always be remembered as something special, but it’s never going to hold up as an accurate representation of what Shakespeare originally wrote. With that in mind, it’s time to close this article and get back to our regularly scheduled programming.
