2008’s Twilight became a box office bonanza that spawned a billion-dollar film franchise. While Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson played lovers onscreen, life imitated art when the cameras stopped rolling. Unfortunately, the two movie stars couldn’t keep their relationship going for various reasons.
Cameras At Every Turn
When you’re a celebrity, everything you do makes its way to the tabloids. Relationships are something very few celebrities can keep a secret. For Stewart, things got hectic when everyone started talking about her relationship with Pattinson. “I didn’t talk about my first relationships that went public because I wanted things that are mine to be mine. I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world,” Stewart told The Sunday Times. Constantly seeing herself on endless magazines and websites didn’t make things fun for her.
Scandals For Days
Some relationships take a turn for the worse when cheating is involved. In 2012, Stewart was caught cheating on Pattinson with Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. After some photos leaked online, both people issued a public apology to their loved ones. “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” Stewart said in a statement. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
While this took a hit on Stewart’s relationship, it was catastrophic for Sanders. At the time, the director was married to model Liberty Ross and taking care of their two children. Following the incident, Ross filed for divorce, which was finalized in May 2014.
As expected, Pattinson had a difficult time trusting Stewart following her apology. Things got intense when Pattinson walked out on a birthday party Stewart booked for the actor. At any given moment, the actor constantly wondered if Stewart would go behind his back again.
Barely Enough Time Together
The movie stars had a slate of films booked following The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Pattinson would be busy working on 2014’s The Rover and Maps to the Stars. Stewart geared up for Camp X-Ray, Clouds of Sils Maria, and Still Alice. Unfortunately, the couple didn’t have enough time for each other. With some of their projects filming overseas, it made things more complicated. Weeks after Pattinson returned from Australia, Stewart headed to Italy to shoot Clouds of Sils Maria. The ability to send a simple text message or phone call was ever-present, but it couldn’t replace being together.
The Difference In Years
The couple had a slew of critics judging them because of their four-year age difference. While Pattinson was 21, Stewart was 17. This unintentionally gave Pattinson authority over Stewart in some situations. Their age difference also led to some clashes. At 17, Stewart was still going through things Pattinson had already faced as a youth. On the other side, Pattinson was dealing with issues Stewart couldn’t understand at the time. While they loved each other, it was difficult to not have someone on their own personal level.
Friends And Family Couldn’t Stand Her
Although Pattinson and Stewart were together, this didn’t mean they shared the same friends. Most of Pattinson’s friends, including Katy Perry, were rumored to dislike Stewart. If that wasn’t enough, Pattinson’s own family members wanted him out of the relationship. The rumor mill stated Perry pulled some strings to split the pair up. The rumors didn’t just end there, though. Tabloids reported that Perry and Pattinson began seeing each other, but both individuals denied it all.
