Holliday Grainger, the pretty star of The Borgias and, most recently, A&E's miniseries Bonnie and Clyde, recently opened up about her long history with Robert Pattinson. While she says the two of them are just friends, they have a long, long history. Holliday wasn't afraid to open up about the time she's spent with Robert and just how authentic he's remained as years have passed. She couldn't say enough nice things about him -- but then, who could blame her?
She's worked with him on two movies. In one of them, 2012's Bel Ami, they played romantic partners, which only further endeared Pattinson to Grainger. She had this to say about what life was like after Twilight for Rob:
I’ve known him since his pre-Twilight days when he was a normal person and it was still like, 'ooh you’re playing Cederic Diggory.' He’s managed to keep very level headed and normal. I don’t understand how. I can’t fathom the idea of living a life like he lives. On the set of Bel Ami in Budpest there would be hundreds of screaming girls there at 5 a.m. and they would still be cordoned off when we finished. He had to move hotels because there were so many people outside his. One day he was signing autographs on the way home from work at 6 a.m. after a night shoot. Bless him, that’s an extra level of hard.
Aw, it's awesome -- but not surprising that Rob's made such a positive impression on his co-workers and friends alike! We know he's still desperate to make things work with Kristen, but we gotta say, he and Holliday make a super-cute couple in their own right.
Would you approve of Rob dating Holliday?
