The celebrity couple looked so good onscreen, and offscreen too. I won't be overstating it one bit when I say their chemistry was infectious. Even though their fictitious characters in the movie where exactly just that—pure fiction. They still managed to endear themselves to a huge and growing fanbase, most of whom have not given up on their reconciliation.
Twilight actors Bella and Edward of the heart stopping romantic vampire saga, are history in many ways. But Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart still cause ripples almost five years after their heartbreaking split.
But that didn't stop their hardcore fans giving up on them getting back together. That's why recently, the rumour machine began to spin excitedly as several fans claim they spotted Twilight costars and real-life exes Stewart and Pattinson hanging out together IRL on February 11, at Edendale, a bar in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake neighborhood.
Hey! Give them a break will you. Exes or not, Celebs can still hang out with each other as pals. It doesn't have to mean something right?
Well don't bet on it. When it comes to the stars, being human takes on a whole new meaning.
Here are some of the social media posts by fans who saw them together at the bar.
"Was just at bar enjoying my friends birthday and in comes Robert Pattinson which blew my Twilight mind up, and then Kristen Stewart walked in and now I’m reliving my high school Twilight fantasies," one wrote. "It wouldn’t have been cool to take a picture of them, they just seemed like two friends hanging out," she added later.
The pair have been known to be friendly ever since they broke up.Of course, no photos surfaced to confirm this said hangout, so we don't know if it actually happened. This has led to some fans thinking this Robsten hang is just great internet fiction.
Even though they have been friendly, Stewart and Pattinson haven't been photographed together since November 2012.
Pattinson who almost married his last girlfriend, is officially single after ending things with his fiancée FKA Twigs in October. As for Stewart—she has been most recently romantically linked to Stella Maxwell; the pair were last spotted out together earlier this month.
After meeting as love interests in blockbuster movie Franchise Twilight, Stewart and Pattinson dated for nearly four years between 2008 and 2012. But Unfortunately, thanks to Kristen, their relationship ended with a scandal: Stewart was photographed kissing Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, then issued a public apology to her boyfriend Pattinson in July 2012. The two patched things up and stayed together, but officially broke up for good in May 2013.
Citing the major problem that caused their split, Stewart, over the last two years, has opened up about what it was like dating Pattinson, and how the public pressure on their on their relationship put an incredible strain on it that inevitably tore them apart.
"People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product," Stewart explained to T Magazine in an August 2016 interview. "It wasn't real life anymore. And that was gross to me." She was closed publicly because "it's not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I'm doing in my life. It's that I don't want to become a part of a story for entertainment value."
"When I was dating Rob, the public were the enemy—and that is no way to live," Stewart told the Sunday Times later in a March 2017 interview."I didn't talk about my first relationships that went public [like with Rob] because I wanted things that are mine to be mine. I hated it—that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world."
To be honest, I can't really blame the fans for hoping. They really were one hot looking couple when they were dating.
