Entertainment behind the scenes
Good friends, chemistry, complex feelings — but no romance for “Twilight” stars?
They’re “really good friends” with major chemistry and “a multitude of feelings for each other”… BUT “Twilight” stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart say they are getting really, really fed up with persistent media reports claiming they are in love, or secretly dating.
“It doesn’t make any difference what you say (to the tabloids). I’ve literally been across the country (from Kristen) and it’s like, ‘Oh, they were on secret dates!’ It’s like, ‘Where? I can’t get out of my hotel room!’” Pattinson tells Vanity Fair in its December issue.
Stewart sounds even more impatient: “It’s so retarded,” she tells the magazine. “We’re characters in this comic book.”
That might prove the end of the tabloid match-making of the past year.
But “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke revealed that the couple did share major chemistry while filming the first movie in the vampire book series — a fact that was obvious to the movie’s millions of fans, and which has given some credence to all those off-screen romance rumors.
“What Rob and Kristen had is a multitude of feelings for each other. Complex feelings for each other. It was what we needed. Complex, intense fascination,” Hardwicke tells Vanity Fair.
As Hardwicke wasn’t on board for the much-anticipated “New Moon” sequel, guess we’ll have to wait and see whether all those multitudes of complex, intense, fascination feelings between the pair have progressed in the second movie.
Meanwhile, Pattinson protests yet again that he is not exactly comfortable in his role as a global heartthrob.
“I’m trying not to drown. I guess I’m not the type of guy cut out to do a franchise. I’m not much of a crowd person,” he tells Vanity Fair.
Well, if Rob is not the franchise type, someone else may be… Looks like co-star Taylor Lautner is fast catching up in the swoon stakes, according to a poll of tweens and teens last week that ranked the buff young actor a clear favorite over the moody Pattinson.
