If the whole "absence makes the heart grow fonder" thing is really true, then Kristen Stewart can probably go ahead and breathe a huge sigh of relief.
But then again, considering there's a new report saying that Robert Pattinson isn't thrilled about leaving Australia in three weeks once production on his new movie wraps up, maybe Kristen should start freaking out over the possibility of losing her man for good.
Yep, according to RadarOnline, Rob's having a big old time Down Under filming The Rover and is already "beginning to get nervous about returning to L.A. and Kristen."
A source says that the location where filming is taking place is "in the middle of nowhere," and has been, "the ideal setting for him to forget all his troubles and bury himself in his work."
And oh yeah, supposedly he digs chilling out with the cast and crew in the outback once working hours are over. (Can you blame him? It's like he's a real life Crocodile Dundee, or something.)
Come on, it's totally understandable that he's enjoyed living his life out of the public eye -- wouldn't you if you were him? I mean, he and Kristen already had paparazzi following their every move, but after she cheated, their level of privacy decreased even further. It's kind of hard to pick up the pieces of your relationship and try and build a happy life together with cameras lurking around every corner.
And aside from the many downsides of being one half of the most famous couple in Hollywood, it's probably best for Rob to stay away from Kristen for a while in general. Once he's done filming The Rover, he'll really have time to take a step back, relax, and figure out whether he wants to settle down with Kristen for the rest of his life, or throw in the towel and move on once and for all.
And if he does decide to remain Down Under instead of hopping on a plane back to L.A. the minute filming is done, I think we can go ahead and say bye-bye to Robsten. If the time they've already spent apart hasn't made them realize they want to be together, odds are good their relationship just isn't meant to be.
Do you think Rob and Kristen being apart for so long probably means a breakup is inevitable?
