Sad. So, according to, well, EVERY magazine it appears that Kristen Stewart did cheat on boyfriend of four years--Robert Pattinson.
Not going to judge Kristen or her choices.
Instead, I wonder if this will affect the final movie, BREAKING DAWN part 2, when it hits theaters. Will people be in love with Bella and Edward knowing that "Bella" cheated on "Edward?" Did K. Stew and Rob's relationship make their love in the movie that much more beautiful? Or would the films have turned out the same if both actors had hated each other?
Personally, I liked that Kristen and Rob were an off screen couple. As a crazy Twilight fan it made the Bella/Edward scenes a little more romantic knowing the actors were together in real life. I'm not going to pop in NEW MOON and scream, "Edward! Find someone else! Bella cheated on you!" Um, if I DO . . . please call the closest psychologist and make me an appointment. ;)
As an outsider who loves the books and movies and has grown to know and love the actors, I hope K and R work it out if it's meant to be. For everyone's sake, I hope their PR team doesn't get anxious and try to force the two into a fake romance until BREAKING DAWN part 2's premiere.
