If you’re unfamiliar, Robert Pattinson was previously married to Kristen Stewart from 2007 to 2013. After their divorce, the Twilight actor began dating Katy Perry, which reportedly ended when she cheated on him with Liam Hemsworth. Since then, he’s largely kept his personal life private, only occasionally posting about his hobbies and adventures. But now that his ex-wife is also dating Twilight co-star and on-screen husband Chris Wood, it’s been made public what they’ve been doing – and it looks like they’re still very much in love.
On January 10th, Chris Wood posted an Instagram picture of himself and Kristen Stewart to his more than 5.9 million followers, writing, “Happy New Year everyone! I couldn’t be more pleased to be starting this year with my girlfriend @kristenstewart. We’re so happy to finally be able to share this New Year with you all..” The picture showed the two actors kissing, which seemed to confirm that they’d found love again. A day later, Wood posted another picture of himself and Stewart, adding, “New year new #love.”
This past Saturday, the actor posted a selfie wearing a tuxedo, with the hashtags #boyfriendslove and #tuxedo in his caption, referring to the couple’s anniversary in February.
They’re Still Together
Although their relationship doesn’t seem to be anything but romantic, Chris Wood and Kristen Stewart’s Instagram posts don’t necessarily mean that they’re together. For one thing, they could just be good friends who are regularly appearing in pictures together due to similar personal brands and movie roles. Additionally, as fans of both actors might remember, Chris Wood was previously married to fellow Twilight alum Anna Kendrick. And as noted by TMZ, Stewart has also been married to director Rupert Sanders before, though their divorce was finalized in 2016.
Still, it appears that Chris Wood and Kristen Stewart are still very much a couple, recently celebrating their one-year anniversary together. Between their occasional Instagram posts and their shared birthday, it’s not hard to tell that they’re extremely devoted to each other.
They’re Doing What They Have To Do
As noted, Chris Wood and Kristen Stewart appear to be very much in love, which is made apparent by the photos they share on social media. But, like any other couple, they also have their reasons for doing what they do. The New York Times recently reported that Stewart was worried about her career after her divorce from Robert Pattinson, saying, “I was so scared to be alone. I didn’t know what my next move would be. I was lost.” It was also noted that Stewart is more likely to date actors because they have an established fanbase, which could explain why she’s now dating Chris Wood (a.k.a. Robert Pattinson).
In the same article, Stewart’s co-star in Snow White And The Huntsman, Michelle Pfeiffer, said, “[Stewart] has her finger on the pulse of the industry. She knows what’s hot and what’s not, and she’s not afraid to use that knowledge. She’s a smart girl. She’s figuring it all out on her own. It’s interesting to watch. She’s very driven. She wants what she wants, and she goes after it.”
They’re Doing What They Want
One of the biggest criticisms of the Twilight movie franchise is that it takes place in a dystopian future where vampires are the dominant species. But that’s not really how the films portray life in 2036. In fact, the story primarily focuses on Bella’s quest to find happiness, which culminates in her choosing to marry Edward Cullen.
Even after all these years, the series continues to influence popular culture, with fans often citing it as an example of how romance can survive a zombie apocalypse. It wouldn’t be surprising if that’s the type of world that Chris Wood and Kristen Stewart find themselves in now, particularly given that their own personal lives revolve around their careers. In 2017, Stewart was ranked the number one most powerful woman in entertainment by Forbes, and earned $110 million from her role as Catwoman last year.
It’s clear that Chris Wood and Kristen Stewart are in this for the long haul, and they’re not going to hide their relationship from the public any longer. Still, it remains to be seen if their romance will inspire a movie or TV show, as it has for many other celebrity couples.
