As you may know, Kristen Stewart is currently dating film producer and ex-boyfriend Eddie Pattinson. While the pair were previously spotted together at numerous film ceremonies in Southern California, their relationship officially began about a month ago. Now that the world knows of their budding romance, many fans are wondering when the two first crossed paths.

Pattinson has a pretty busy schedule, which prevented him from attending any award shows in person. Thanks to his absence, the pair were able to sneak in some private time together. At the Cinema Society Awards in Beverly Hills, the Twilight Saga star was seen entering Pattinson’s black Mercedes-Benz CLS. After the event, they were spotted leaving his house together.

Over the past year, Stewart has attended a number of award shows, including the Golden Globe Awards in January, the SAG Awards in February, the AFI Awards in April, and the Cinema Society Awards in May. In each instance, Stewart has been accompanied by her Twilight Saga costars Taylor Lautner and Billy Burke. In other words, the Scottish actress has kept quiet about her love life the entire time she has been in the spotlight.

However, things might be changing. Perhaps sensing that her personal life is becoming less of a liability, Stewart recently opted to grace the cover of Vogue Australia and shed light on her romantic status. In her interview with the magazine, Stewart admitted that she had fallen in love with Pattinson after their first official meeting at the Los Angeles premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in March 2012. At first, Stewart was hesitant about declaring her feelings for Pattinson, but when pressed on the subject, she admitted that she was indeed smitten. She added that although many people considered director Bill Condon’s finest hour to be Twilight, it was actually her first meeting with Pattinson that left the deepest impression.

A First Encounter At A Twilight Concert

Stewart attended the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse wearing a black dress and gray clutch. One of the journalists covering the event noted that she “looked like a woman struck by lightning,” referring to Taylor Lautner’s Volturi character. The evening of June 20, 2012 was undoubtedly one of Stewart’s most memorable events of the year. As the first half of the film ended, the audience stood up and started screaming “Taylor! Taylor!” The music stopped and the cast and crew looked on in shock as the theater went dark. It was then that Stewart spotted Taylor Lautner in the audience and instantly recognized him as her Twilight costar. While many may have assumed that the premiere of Eclipse marked the beginning of Stewart’s romantic involvement with Taylor Lautner, that was actually not the case. According to Stewart, she had already met Lautner prior to the movie’s premiere.

As the former child star grew up overnight, so did her celebrity. Within a few months of arriving in town, Stewart was spotted at numerous red-carpet events, including the SAG Awards, the Academy Awards, and the Golden Globe Awards. She also attended the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City wearing a custom-made dress by designer Marchesa. The exhibition honored designers Diane von Furstenberg and Donna Karan, who both wore outfits designed by the late Kate Hepburn for her starring role in the film The Graduate.

The Prince And Princess Of Wales Are Among Her Closest Friends

Thanks to her blossoming acting career, Stewart has become one of the most in-demand women in Hollywood. As a result, she has been bestowed with many prestigious titles, including Vogue’s Iconic Woman and Most Influential Woman in Film.

One of her closest friends is the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who she first met in 2007 at the Invictus Games in Beijing. The pair bonded over their love for fashion and have remained close ever since. In fact, Stewart adopted the Cambridges’ son, Prince George, as her own. Another close friend is Parisian socialite Claude Bragado, who the actress met through her godmother. The pair have also been spotted canoodling and vacationing together in St.Barts.

Pattinson Keeps His Private Life Private

While many of Stewart’s celebrity friends have been outspoken about their love for the 31-year-old actress, her beau, Eddie Pattinson, has been tight-lipped about their relationship. The leading man of the Twilight Saga has decided to keep quiet about their private life in the press. Pattinson has rarely been seen in public without Stewart by his side. The couple share an unspoken bond that audiences can only perceive. As A.C. Nielsen, Nielsen Marketing research vice president, said of the unconventional couple, “They represent an age group that millennials are attracted to. It’s appealing to them because it’s different, it’s edgy.” Whether or not that will ultimately translate to success remains to be seen.
