Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Are Still in Contact, He Tells 'THR'

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart Are Still in Contact, He Tells 'THR'

Robert Pattinson gets his close up on the cover of THR magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 28-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On if he and Kristen Stewart are still in contact: “Oh, yeah.”

On playing Edward Cullen in Twilight: “It was quite a constricting character, in a way. You want to make [him] as dramatic as possible, but
you have someone who never loses his temper, and so it’s like, ‘How the f— do you do this?’ I think that was one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever done.”

On Team Edward vs. Team Jacob: “Everything changed when they did the marketing, and the general public started to view [the films] in a different way when they started to push the ‘team’ aspect of it. It was like, ‘I’m on Team Edward or Team Jacob.’ That saturated everything, and suddenly there was a backlash. Whereas with the first [film], there wasn’t a backlash at all.”

    I totally agree with the answer to the last question and I feel like he wants to say more negative things about the marketing, and maybe other aspects, of the Twilight movies but he most definitely isn’t in a position to say them.

  • http://mapuii7 goshitsmaegirlzzz

    its true about edward not getting angry cause the character he play is very calm,positive,mature

  • Tyla

    I find it unfortunate that Rob got sucked into Twilight. He’s a much better actor than that! But everyone has to get their big break somewhere, right? As for him being in contact with Kristen, good for them. He obviously has forgiven her and is a mature man. I really hope he doesn’t give her another chance, though. People like her do not deserve yet another chance.

  • ace11

    I he still talks to Kristen he is more pathetic then I thought

  • Agreed

    @Tyla: I don’t believe they’re still together, but at least it squashes the crap his fans think about him cutting her out of his life. They can say the tabloids lie, but I wonder if they’ll call him a liar. Clearly their friendship connection was bigger than anything romantic.

  • Nat

    He should REALLY let Kristen go for good. Dude, she cheated on you, publicly humiliated you, yet you still talk to her??? End things peacefully and cut her out of your life. I bet they still get together and bang. That’s why they’re in contact….

  • rooting for u guys

    I sincerely and completely wish that these two get back together, they made such a cute couple. Everybody make mistakes. Get over it, if you love each other.
    Kristen is funnily weird and seems a loner, rob seems equally a loner and a huge romantic. They seem to have so much in common. Definitely rooting for them.

  • http://google elsia

    To Ace11…Why? What makes you an expert on relationships. Have you ever been hurt but forgive? Is this world make up of perfect people, couples, marriages; etc.? Talking, caring, forgiving, is not pathetic; it’s shows maturity…you must be a child/teenager.. not fully mature or just plain unhappy

  • Meme

    It’s unfortunate that from this insightful interview, you’ve chosen to focus on a minuscule part of the interview. He also talks about how he’s moved on and is obviously enjoying his life now. Stewart isn’t part of that obviously, but Rob’s not going to be mean if asked a question like that directly.

  • No she’s not

    @Nat: Rob has said time and time again that he hasn’t had to forgive someone, that no one needs his forgiveness. Haven’t you ever really thought about those quotes? That leads me to believe that either A) that was a publicity stunt and she didn’t cheat or B) that they had a showmance and were friends (maybe event to cover up the fact that she was gay) so he didn’t mind pretending they were more or C) they were dating but either had an open relationship or weren’t together at the time of her cheating. He said he was fine, he said he didn’t need to forgive anyone and he was clearly still on good terms with her during the last promo tour and all throughout Coachella and other outings the up until the following spring after Twilight ended. If they scandal doesn’t affect Rob’s life then it was probably fake or they weren’t together at the time in the first place. They’re not dating now but they’re still in contact and he’s doing GREAT in his career and he’s respected in the industry and the public likes him. Nothing hurt his career. If he doesn’t have a problem with Kristen, why do you? Rob knows Kristen better than anyone commenting her, so for once I wish his fans would respect how he feels and how he wants to lead his life.

  • Meme

    It’s sad that you’ve chosen to focus on a tiny part of the interview, where Rob is asked a direct question about Stewart. He also talks at length about how he’s moved on and is enjoying his life. That SHOULD be the focus here.

  • No she’s not

    Btw my “name” has nothing to do with’s from a Hayden P post I commented lol.

  • Meme

    @No she’s not: oh grow up. Who stages a cheating scandal for publicity. They were together, they broke up. Simple.

  • No she’s not

    @Meme: Despite my rant about how outsiders think Rob should run his life, I actually totally agree with you. This headline was a missed opportunity to talk about the core of this interview instead of that blip.

  • Angel

    i thought it wasn’t even true that they dated

  • No she’s not

    @Meme: Clearly you focus on one thing….but yeah, you’re right. In fact, next time I cheat…I’m going to do it while I’m trying to break out of a Twilight bubble with a married director who hasn’t crossed over to the US enough who has a struggling model wife…and we’re doing to do that in a way that my boyfriend totally still forgives me…we all get a lot of press that breaks us from the Twilight bubble and while I’m at it, I’m going to take my ultra private ninja self and do some fun choreographed moves in broad daylight and look directly at the photographer and smile. Am I ninja or what?………..funny enough, I agreed with you about singling the Kristen question out for this article and yet you only singled out ONE part of my comment. Take your own advice, yeah? The fact is, you see pictures…Rob knows Kristen. You watch interviews…Rob knows Kristen. In the end, Rob and Kristen knew more, know more and will always know more about their lives than you do. You’re just an internet Meme.

  • Sarah

    I like how the tiniest thing in the entire article is turned into a whole issue. All he said was “oh, yeah.” He probably didn’t say no, or explain anything further because he knew the media would twist his words, which they’re doing anyway with this meaningless quote…

  • Meg

    @Meme: They said a lot more in that comment than just about the cheating being a stunt. Whether it was or wasn’t no one will ever know the stage of RK’s relationship. It’s no one’s business. For all we know, the relationship and the scandal could’ve all been a front for the fact that she was gay. It’s all speculation. The only truth is that Rob is still in contact with her…they could just be friends, they could’ve always been friends. You say “simple”, but it’s really not if you don’t know 100% facts about something. The internet is a web of lies, so I never take anything a tabloid says (pictures or not) as fact.

  • Meg

    As for the rest of the article, I need to read it. There has to be more than just a mention of Kristen and that awful Team Edward vs Team Jacob BS.

  • Hmm

    I always thought Rob and Kristen felt trapped by the fairytale of E/B when they weren’t like them at all in real life. Like or not, that scandal really did destroy the fantasy without hurting their careers…maybe it was for show. The movie didn’t suffer, but they were never looked at as Edward and Bella again. Oooo00oo the plot thickens… Well, until this article. One of these days the excerpts will NOT be about Twilight.

  • Reb

    I read on another site that Kristen and Rob had an open relationship. He agreed to it. We’ll obviously never know for sure, but that’s probably why he’s over it now.

  • Meg

    @Reb: If that’s the case then that’s the case. People need to go out and live their own lives with their own relationships and stop speculating about theirs. They still talk but they’ve moved on. It’s sad when the state of someone else’s relationship is a debate between groups of people who have absolutely no connection to the couple/former couple at all. Leave them be, ya know?

  • http://itstrue EAST ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, it works if you try enough!!! Also look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

  • Niagirl

    Let it go Let it go Let it goooooooooo.

  • Paige

    Just because he said they’re on speaking terms doesn’t mean they are back together or will ever get back together. They may just get along even if their relationship didn’t end well. It’s their business.

  • Yup

    @Paige: Oh I don’t think anyone feels he implied that they’re still together. I’m sure everyone agrees with you, but you know the internet…everyone feels like their opinion is both relevant and needed, when in the end…Robert and Kristen nor asked what anyone thinks about them nor do they care lol.

  • alexa

    Pffff, these two… who cares

  • Reb

    @Meg: This is a gossip site and they live in the PUBLIC eye. Their relationship IS up for speculation. That’s the life Rob and Kristen and every other actor who makes it big CHOOSES. So your comment, while kind and I understand where you’re coming from is pretty moot on a site like this. The purpose of this site is to speculate about famous people. :)

  • Meg

    @Reb: I appreciate your respectful reply to me, but at the same time, I disagree on a level. You can comment and simply say “I’m glad they’re working it out”, or “I knew they still talked” without all of the arguments of “he shouldn’t take her back because yadda yadda yadda” based off an “oh, yeah”. I understand that people speculate and that’s all well and good, but I mean the catty fights and pure nastiness amongst commenters about how Rob and Kristen should live their lives on top of the non ‘speculation’ as much as ‘assumptions’ of what went down in their relationship. You can speculate without acting as if what you say is fact. Ya know? “Rob broke up with her because this” or “Kristen dumped him because of that” as if they got the play-by-play from the two themselves lol. What my comment referred to was more of …if it’s to the point where it affects you so much that you need to argue about it, you’re too invested in celebrities. Does that make sense?

  • Meg

    @Reb: I mean people saw her cheating, she released a statement and they still go on to talk about the affair as if they knew how many encounters they had, what happened, what Rob thought of it, and what acts they were doing in the car even though all they got was her statement and a few photos of them pecking and in an embrace. You give them an inch and they turn it into 6ft lol.

  • gina

    C’mon Robert cut her out of your life! She cheated on you

  • hannh

    THR interview spoke about so many things and yet this is what JJ focuses on! Pathetic

  • pari

    But honestly is Rob for real! He still in touch with that girl who cheated on him! No words

  • Anna

    Rob is gorgeous, but it would be better if he cut her out of his life.She cheated on him

  • Ana

    “there was a backlash” he always blamed and taunted team Jacob, and then people started doing the same thing, and now he’s complaining? excellent.

  • niki

    Why is he still in touch with her ???

  • Sanity101

    @No she’s not: @Meg: You both need a SHOCK TREATMENT if you think someone will fake a cheating scandal with a MARRIED FATHER OF TWO for whatever reason. Female cheaters are crucified in Hollywood. I know its hard to believe that your precious Rpatz got cheated on but it what it is. You b-tches must be in heat right now go hump Edward Cullen pillows

  • moe

    Why do people care that they still talking? They were friends for years. They still share many friends. They work with the same people. Robert and Kristen each had a very successful Cannes experience. Everyone was excited by their growth professionally. Everyone was excited about their smart career choices. Both got great reviews for their movies. Both could do well during awards season. Both have films waiting to filmed and released. Both look very happy and content. Both are surrounded by their friends. Each fan base should be excited and happy.

  • mtm

    @Sanity101: I think some people think RS created this scandal. He had some pictures taken and fake the rest. Then sold the story and the pictures. Kristen was told by the studio to release a statement, to pacify and calm down the fans. Look at the pictures of all four people after the scandal. Rob and Kristen looked horrible, skinny and sad. Rupert and Liberty not so much. Who knows what happened. But looking at the pictures only Robert and Kristen looked like something terrible had happened in their life. And only Rupert and Liberty looked like they hit the jackpot, for a career boost.

  • hunting cows

    @Meg: soo you are a retarded cow who is trying to tell everyone that the affair was fake? pulling crack induced theories out of your ass to make Kristen look innocent? go tell your BS to Liberty and her kids

  • gemma

    THR actually called Rob a cuckolded vampire hahahaha! he still talks to kristen.She is the boss

  • Meg

    @hunting cows: @Sanity101: I was defending a comment made by someone else, I didn’t say the scandal didn’t happen and I didn’t say it was fake, I just said that IF it was a stunt then it COULD have been made to cover up the possibility of her being gay. I didn’t say that’s what I believed in, just that there’s always possibilities. You two on the other hand are vile and rude. Who says disgusting things like calling people ret–ded, cows and saying they need shock therapy? You guys don’t know anything about Rob and Kristen, their “scandal” or anything else…you just read some crap on the internet. I didn’t make up any theory, I just obviously have some sense to know that people make things up all the time to make money and sometimes you have to sit back and let people live their own lives because all the speculation in the world doesn’t give you facts. For all you know Kristen could have played into a set up from Rupert and Liberty and she apologized to Rob…clearly he didn’t give a sh_t because he continued to date her. EVER THINK THERE WAS MORE TO THE STORY? I mean, REALLY? Do you have any idea how much exposure R/L got and how much money Liberty got for doing a tell-all? They were already splitting up too, way before the scandal. I don’t condone cheating at all, but my only sympathy for Liberty’s kids is that their family got split up. Their father and Kristen could have been the reason for that, or their mother and father could have been reason for that…no one knows but R/K/R/L. I have zero sympathy for Liberty because if she couldn’t see that he was a skeeze from the get go then that’s her problem. He looked shady to me from day one, and what man pursues a teen? He did when he got with Liberty in the first place. Creeper. I know how the Hollywood game works, how media works and how PR stunts work. Don’t blame me because you’re incredibly naive and will think an elephant is a lion if People magazine tells you so. The scandal could have been very real but it could have also been very fake. I’m not going to debate that with you two because you can’t even write a comment without spewing disgusting insults. Your vile behavior makes anything bad Kristen has done look decent.


    Rob is potentially a great actor. He has a lot of talent and works very hard. Twilight may have type-cast him a bit, but, he will persevere.

    Kristen has that whole Glamazon thing going for her. I doubt she wanted to hurt him. Things can get out of hand. And it is good to forgive….and move on.

  • annette

    @Meg: kskank is a fake, she is no victim, she probably lead Rupert on.He called her naughty.
    Rob should cut all ties with her and never speak to her again she sucks

    “People who believe tabloids deserve to be lied to.” <—truest words.

    Hi, She very kindly looks after his dogs when he is away. She was interviewed recently at home and Bear was in the house. Rob has been away from LA a lot lately and he knows she will look after them well.
