If you thought that Taylor Lautner’s recent split from actress Kristen Stewart was the end of one of pop culture’s most controversial and romantic relationships, think again. The couple’s friends are proving to be their true love’s greatest supporters, and they’re throwing the perfect party to prove it. On Saturday night, Lautner, 27, and his best friend Robert Pattinson, 29, celebrated the former couple’s “reconciliation” by hosting a party at Los Angeles’ Chateau Marmont hotel, according to E! News. The Twilight star and his buddy have been close since they were kids and began their acting careers together. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lautner described their bromance. “We’ve known each other forever,” he said. “The first movie we did was High School Musical. We were both the football players in that. He was actually my roommate growing up.”

The Most Fashionable Party

The star of the Twilight series and his Twilight co-star are looking hotter than ever these days, which hasn’t hurt their popularity: The movie’s first installment, Twilight, became the top-grossing movie of all time when it was released in 2012. In August 2015, Lautner was named the most influential person in the fashion industry, and this year he is the face of a major brand’s clothing line.

Pattinson’s fashion influence is no secret; he has been named the most stylish person in the world by Vogue and the British public has voted him Sexiest Man Alive. The fashionista has graced the cover of Vogue eight times, and he has been featured on the cover of both American and British versions of the magazine. In the past, he has been linked to some of the most gorgeous women in Hollywood, including Gisele Bündchen, Kate Middleton, and more recently, Stewart. Lautner has also said that he admires Pattinson’s “classy” style. “He’s always well-dressed. Even when we were kids, he was always the cool older brother,” Lautner told The Sun in 2015.

A ‘Believe’ Anthem

It’s not just fame that has benefited from the Twilight phenomenon. The song “Stay” by French DJ Zedd became an unofficial anthem for the MTV generation, and the album it’s featured on, Teen Wolf, has gone triple platinum in the U.S. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the track has sold over 15 million digital copies globally.

Zedd’s “Stay” was released in 2012 and samples English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding’s 2010 song “Anything Could Happen.” Lautner’s rep confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that “Anything Could Happen” was used royalty-free.

The video for “Anything Could Happen” was directed by Kanye West and is one of the most expensive music videos of all time. The clip was a collaboration with fashion designers Raf Simons and Kim Jones, who dress the young stars of the video. The fashion world has been waiting for Kanye’s next big move ever since. After the video’s release, the fashion house that he owns, Yeezy, became the best-selling brand of 2015, and its CEO, George Zimmer, became the youngest-ever CEO of a major fashion company at the age of 28.

Back Together, But Not Yet Back To ‘Normal’

While the future of their friendship looks promising, Lautner and Pattinson have been through a lot since they teamed up on-screen four years ago. The actor said that their on-screen chemistry is “one of the things that made the movie so special,” but also confessed that their off-screen relationship was “challenging” because it was “so new.”

When asked about the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, Lautner told Variety, “It’s just about respect. You don’t need to apologize for having respect for someone just because they’re popular or successful. If anything, it should be about challenging people to be better…. [But] it doesn’t hurt when the tables are turned and someone gets jealous or threatened. Then it becomes a problem. But it’s easy to come back from that and say, ‘That was then, this is now.’ When you respect someone’s opinions and choices, it’s easier to forgive them when they make a mistake or do something you disagree with.”

Lautner and Stewart famously grew apart last year when she began seeing singer Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The actor took to social media to express his disappointment at being “set up” by a friend. A petition to get the Friends movie re-released with Stewart’s name in the lead role garnered over 14,000 signatures, and after five months apart, the two seemed to reconcile their differences on social media. This September, they were photographed attending a mutual friend’s bachelorette party, and in October, Stewart was granted a divorce from Taylor-Johnson. However, the split was not entirely amicable: The actress accused her former best friend of “living a lie” and said that they did not “have the same interests or values anymore.” Lautner has yet to comment.

The Perfect PDA

The perfect party for a man and his boyfriend wouldn’t be complete without a diamond ring, and the Chateau Marmont hotel has everything a bride could want for her big day. The hotel’s Grand Dame, Babe Paley, who was a silent partner in the hotel until her death in 2014, and her late husband, Jack Paley, would have approved of this extravagant gesture. Paley was an advocate for women’s rights and the publisher of the legendary Miss Porter’s School newspaper, The Loreley

The Palam family, which owns the hotel, is a prominent Jewish family; several of their members have been influential in Hollywood since the 1930s. The hotel is most famous for its ballroom, which has been used for some of the most iconic weddings in movie history. Richard Simmons married his high school sweetheart, Sue Mengers, in front of an audience of 2,000 at the Palam Grand Ballroom in 1975. In 1988, Farrah Fawcett gave an unforgettable performance as a bride in Charlie’s Angels, and in 2017, Barbra Streisand married her record-breaking 14th husband, artist James Marsden, at the hotel.

The Ultimate Sign Of Love

In 2019, it’s not just about the wedding ring: It’s about the promise to stay devoted to each other forever. For pop culture’s most famous and beloved couple, their friends have become a symbol of their enduring commitment to one another. When Lautner and Pattinson became friendly with Kate Hudson in 2011, the actress dubbed them “The Power Couple.” When asked about the significance of the nickname, Lautner said, “We just kind of laughed about it. Kate loves Taylor, and Taylor loves Kate. We’ve known each other our whole lives. It’s just kind of an inside joke.” Hudson was one of the first celebrities to publicly support Lautner after Stewart’s split from the actor. She even invited Stewart to be a bridesmaid in her 2015 wedding to musician Bryan Adams. Hudson and Adams’ wedding was one of the most influential and extravagant celebrity weddings of the past few years, and it’s safe to assume that Lautner was there to celebrate the happy couple.

Offering Insights On The Future Of Their Friendship

Hollywood’s most beloved power couple is clearly setting the trends, and their influence is shaping the industry. As the industry continues to evolve with a new generation growing up in the digital age, how will this impact Lautner and Pattinson’s friendship?

Last year, Entertainment Weekly broke the news that Stewart had filed for divorce from Taylor-Johnson, her on-again, off-again boyfriend, citing irreconcilable differences. The two had been romantically linked since 2010 and were married in 2015. After nearly five years of marriage, the couple decided to call it quits.

While the news was shocking, it wasn’t a complete surprise: Their on-screen chemistry had begun to cool, and they had been looking for a way to spend more time together. According to an interview with People magazine, Stewart first noticed a change in her relationship with Lautner after his appearance on the hit show, How to Get Away With Murder. “I’ve never seen him so passionate about a role,” she said. “When he came back from that, I thought something was different.” In late 2019, both actors publicly apologized for their actions and admitted that they had behaved “immorally.” They decided to move forward with their friendship, but in a way that was new to them.
