After months of speculation, rumours and trying to keep their unconfirmed relationship secret….Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tell the world they are a couple at long last!
The stars of the Twilight films who play the ‘irrevocably in love’ vampire Edward Cullen and mortal Bella Swan have come clean about their relationship which they have both denied for some time. The attention surrounding the lovebirds started when filming began for the second film in the saga ‘New Moon’. Since late 2008, they have tried to avoid all public appearances together as to not rouse suspicions…but we all secretly knew right?! They have constantly reiterated they were ‘just good friends’ but heart throb Pattinson revealed all on the red carpet at this years BAFTA’s.
The former Harry Potter star said: “It is extremely difficult but we are together, yes.
‘We can’t arrive at the same time because of the fans. It goes crazy. This was supposed to be a public appearance as a couple but it’s impossible. We are here together and it’s a public event but it’s not easy.”
Wow! How long has he been itching to say that?! He must’ve also been very proud of his American girlfriend as she won the Rising Star award at the BAFTA ceremony. Despite not mentioning Pattinson in her acceptance speech, she did thank all the hardcore Twilight fans who voted for her as this specific award was voted for by the public. It was no surprise to see her take home the accolade as the Twilight saga is most definitely the phenomenon of the moment. However, I’m sure there are many a broken hearted teen (and a few adults…ahem) who will shed a tear over the recent announcement… but there’s always Taylor Lautner I suppose!
