An item in Life & Style claiming that the romance between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will finally be revealed publicly when the “Twilight” cast convenes to film Breaking Dawn next fall has triggered enormous speculation (again) about the paparazzi-dogged couple.
While it’s nothing new for outlets to buzz incessantly about Robsten, what caught Gossip Cop’s attention this time was the implication that cast members plan to be open about a relationship that, until now, had to be kept “under wraps.”
“Everyone that’s part of the franchise is so happy for [Pattinson and Stewart],” an “insider” tells Life & Style. “They don’t feel the need to hide it anymore.”
Except no one was told to hide anything in the first place.
The notion that the Twilight cast’s “lips have been sealed” about Pattinson and Stewart is some revisionist history. There was never an edict from anyone. There was never a gag order. There was no Twilight state secret.
It’s simple: No one in the cast wished to comment on a third party’s private life. There was always enough respect among Pattinson, Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Anna Kendrick, and everyone else on set that private lives stayed private.
Should Pattinson and Stewart decide to talk with the press about their lives, the others will take their cues about what is and isn’t appropriate. But when Breaking Dawn is green lit, no switch is flipped on a heretofore “hush-hush relationship.”
One final note: If Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart decide, of their own accord, to tell the world they’re dating during the (eventual) filming of the Twilight Saga’s next installment, Gossip Cop hopes it will have only one significant effect – to make their daily lives safer and happier than during the filming of Eclipse.
Everyone needs whatever level of privacy gives him or her comfort. And that was made impossible last summer by the paparazzi’s relentless pursuit of Pattinson and Stewart outside of restaurants, inside hotel lobbies, etc.
“Proof” of “love” (as Life & Style puts it) is less vital than the press “proving” itself decent and respectful.
