Robert Pattinson's Kristen Stewart Confession Makes It Sound Like the Joke's On Us

by Maressa Brown on November 12, 2012 at 4:10 PM

robert pattinson Remember back when Robert Pattinson made his first appearances on the interview circuit post-cheating scandal? Really, he was just out there to promote his flick Cosmopolis, but of course the ONLY question on any interviewer's mind was whether or not he was surviving in light of GF Kristen Stewart supposedly shtupping her Snow White & the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders behind his back. He somehow made it out of that PR blitz without really having to talk much about his personal life, but now, in the wake of the Breaking Dawn: Part 2 premiere, he seems to be taking a different, more forward approach.

Speaking with The Washington Post, Rob actually addressed the idea that the Twilight publicity machine is using his romantic relationship as a marketing tool for the film ...

His response:

For one thing, it would be a terrible marketing tool, and it’s not utilized very well at all. People will say anything. I’m still amazed that people even believe anything [that’s said about us]. I mean, it’s one of the craziest things about the whole situation, where you can see the whole — is paradigm the right word? — of celebrity gossip, celebrity culture type stuff that’s literally entirely made up. There’s a story line. You have a set character and your story line is written for you. And it doesn’t matter what you do. I talked to Reese Witherspoon about it a while ago, and she was the person who really told me, you get given a character. I mean, I’ve literally tried to do things to throw people off, and it just doesn’t get printed.

Oh really, he's "tried to do things" to throw people off? Kiiiinda sounds like he gets a kick out of trying to manipulate the media and the public's opinion! Also, the part about him being "amazed that people even believe anything" sounds highly suspicious, especially following what went down this past summer. Is he amazed that people believed Kristen actually cheated on him with Rupert? Or that he and Kristen were ever a couple to begin with? The questions are endless!

What's more, there was quite a bit of buzz that the whole scandal may have been orchestrated by Rob and Kristen alone -- just as a gag on the media, a ruse to see how much they could influence what's written about them. If you read into it even just a bit, Rob's "oh-so-innocent" act doesn't exactly do much to dispute that possibility.

But oh well, will we ever know the truth? Do we even care or are we perfectly content to just keep playing the guessing game and then go see BD2 ASAP? I vote the latter. Marketing game or not, Rob, Kristen, and their soon-to-be box office smash have already come out on top.

Do you believe the conspiracy theory?

    If this was a "hoax" to promote the franchise & movies....then shame on them for doing so! nobody even cares any more if she cheated or not, but I guess people will do anything for money, attention, and fame. really sadbad.

    do i even care if they are f****ing around on each other, NO! BUT if i were to believe everything i have heard in the media I would say why is Rob talking to reese W. when there were all kinds of rumors about the two of them "Having an Affair" ? I really like kstew and rpatz as a couple because they are both beautiful, but in all reality I just wanna see the Breakin Dawn 2 and hope it is the best movie out of the twilight saga love to see this end with a big bang. SEEEEEEEEE you at the movies come  the 16th!!!!!!

    I haven't watched even one of those movies, so I have no real interest here. I have two words for people who think this is a conspiracy: Liberty Ross. Also, KS got booted off any sequels of Snow White because of the sexual transgressions.

    I've got to say...I don't know who the hell they think they are playing guessing games with, especially Kristen. Because nobody seems to care about these two dumbnuts anymore. The only people that are asking about your doomed relationship is the media and the delusional Kristen Stewart fans that are still out there. And if you haven't noticed NOT everyone believes everything that they read. Obviously. If Rob ever took a peak at just exactly what the tabloids are writing about him and his little trampire girlfriend he would drop dead from the shock of it, and how easy it is NOT to believe such bs. Get your head out of your ass, Rob. (Yes, I know Robert Pattinson will never read this, but I'm only trying to put an emphases on what it is I am trying to say.

    I just have to say, the obsession with these Twilight stars, the movie and the books creeps me out. I think Robert Pattinson is a wonderful actor(as are many of the actors in the Twilight movies), but I just have never understood how people can become obsessed with a person they don't even know(i.e. actors). Now, let me specify, I completely understand teenagers being infatuated with a celebrity(be it actor, singer, whatever) because they are young and naive. And I understand some people look up to some actors because of how good they are at acting and/or what good things they've done in real life. But full grown adults obsessing over celebrities, or anyone they dont know for that matter........that is scarey and borderline psychotic.
