Yes. Yes, I am, Robert.It's just so volatile, you guys. So visceral. So polarizing. Nope, not talking about Obama and Romney, I'm talking, of course, about the national crisis that is Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. The star-crossed pair are reportedly back together despite KStew's wondering vagina, but some people out there aren't so sure this is a good idea. And those "some people" are allegedly the people who make decisions. A Robsten insider claims that the studio will not let them promote Breaking Dawn Part II together lest it upsets the fans who are still angry at Kristen for betraying their Rob like that.
Yup! All those awkward red carpet premiere photos we were hoping for might not even happen.
Such a bummer. We'll find out at the end of next month whether or not this rumor is true when Kristen and Robert attend the London premiere of the film together, but frankly, I'd really like to see them try and look comfortable in front of throngs of screaming fans and photographers. I want them to promote together. It'd be amazing.
I can't blame the studio, though. If I were a big wig over there, I'd make sure my stars never overlapped on the red carpet, too. Twihards were devastated by the scandal, and why risk reminding them of the pain Kristen's actions caused by having her stand next to Rob like nothing happened? Nope, no way, not on my watch.
I'd treat KStew and RPattz like oil and water and make sure they never mixed at Breaking Dawn events. Until, well, until the world premiere in L.A., of course. That's when I'd let Rob and Kristen hold hands on the red carpet, and even kiss. It'd be the perfect storm of publicity for the movie, for the actors, and for the puppet-masters waiting in the wings to collect their enormous Breaking Dawn checks. Ah, Hollywood.
Do you think Kristen and Robert should appear separately at Breaking Dawn events?
