Are you one of the many fans of the Twilight movie series who has been eagerly watching the relationship drama unfold between Robert Pattinson and his leading lady, Kristen Stewart? Well, you might have been a bit distraught when the news broke that not only had Stewart cheated on Pattinson with her Twilight co-star, Billy Burke, but that they were engaged. Not only that, but due to the scandalous nature of the relationship, it wasn’t long before TMZ picked up on the story and dubbed the couple “The Anti-Britney”.
However, as the dust settled and the world got a fresh new set of eyes on the couple, it seems that their anti-establishment tendencies may have worked in their favor. Now, as it’s been reported, the couple may be on the cusp of tying the knot, and if so, it would seem that they’ve learned from past mistakes.
Why They Might Be Getting Married
For those looking to spice things up a bit, Pattinson is certainly an attractive alternative to traditional marriage proposals. Not only did he propose to Stewart in a castle surrounded by wolves (how romantic!), but his previous engagement ended in similar fashion, with the pair eloping to Italy to wed. In addition, Stewart is also a noted fashion icon who has spent years drawing inspiration from both her movie roles and her personal style evolution.
While there haven’t been any confirmed sightings of the couple’s engagement, there are a number of reasons why it seems highly likely this time would be different. First off, thanks to the success of the Twilight franchise, Stewart has more financial security than she’s ever had before. With a reported net worth of almost £500 million, she has more than enough money to live the high life and invest wisely in luxurious goods and properties.
Not only that, but with her previous engagement coming so close to the end and her reputation at stake, she would seem to be seeking a more traditional marriage. Finally, Stewart would be tying the knot with her high school sweetheart and fellow Scottish actor, Robert, so there’s no question of impressing future grandchildren with a celebrity bachelor lifestyle.
What’s Next For The Anti-Britney?
With the exception of a reported reconciliation with her mother (her father, Mitchum, left the family home when Stewart was very young), Stewart has stuck to a carefully scripted media schedule, promoting her upcoming movies and avoiding any further involvement with her former co-stars. But what will happen now that she’s escaped the media spotlight?
Well, as previously reported, Stewart’s parents are keen to play a starring role in the couple’s wedding, so it’s possible we might see some of the same family members take center stage as ushers or even walk down the aisle on a special day. Also, with Stewart’s film career on the rise and the couple’s desire to start a family, it seems likely they’ll want everyone to join in the celebration. So, if nothing else, we can expect a very happy wedding for the Anti-Britney.
