I cant get over how good she has gotten at doing interviews. I love it

And that was the perfect answer to that question Kristen. Your private live is yours and you have every right to keep it private. Classy

Gozde said...

Alright, I'm gonna say it: so it was OKAY to talk about being with Angarano but it's dishonest if you talk about whether you are or aren't an item with Rob? How does that make sense?

Maybe the fever is messing up with my mind but this "I won't confirm or deny because it will make it blow out of proportion thing is bullshit".

There...

Susanne said...

@Gozde: Absolutely right!!!

Annelies said...

Hear hear Gozde!
And get well soon!!!!

Meeno said...

LOL . . . one date with Jacob, but FOREVER with Edward. Just about summed it up, don't you think?

Anonymous said...

Nobody cared whether she was dating Angarano. Quite a lot of people seem to care if she's dating Rob. Add to that, when she started dating Angarano, neither one of them was famous, no paps, no nosy fans. Completely different situation now.

Ravishing said...

Exactly Ella. Anyway Stewy is adorable & she has gotten so much better in interviews.

gracefulgrace said...

I think the difference between her dating Angarano and her dating Rob, is people have always made such a big deal about it. The madia would never leave them alone, even more so. She said she would talk about it if people hadn't made suck a big deal about it.
I think she meant, no manter what she says, people wont believe her. Like when she was denying it the gossip mags made out it was a lie.

I hope they never come out with it, I like that they have something private still. :)

jmm4832 said...

Ella, plus maybe Kristen realized that she shouldn't have told everyone she was dating Angarano because they ended up breaking up. If she confirms a relationship with Rob then she would be in the same situation if it ends. Personally I don't believe celebrities owe people details of their private lives. All they owe us are great performances, and it's nobody else's business.

I applaud Kristen for keeping their relationship private and hope she continues to do so. What is happening privately between Kristen and Rob is nobody's business but theirs. Her relationship with Michael was completely different. They were kids, friends. Romantic love is very different and far more complicated. It will be difficult enough for it to grow and survive in their chosen careers. It wouldn't have much of a chance if they were both talking about every detail publicly. Kris was right when she said it wouldn't stop the fiends from fiending. If they talk publicly, every journalist will ask every personal question there is. I want to see them make it, therefore I'm happy to make my assumptions from the pictures and smiles. Their kind of love is rare. Let's give them the space to nurture it.

Yves said...

@Ella, I agree. It's a shame that Kristen is feeling pressured to explain anything about her private life at all, let alone justify why she chooses not to talk about it.

Yes, once upon a time Kristen shared a tidbit about her love life - she has lived to regret it, I'm sure.

And we all know that she's in a very different place than she was a year ago. Isn't it possible that her answers to current questions are based on lessons she's learned in this past year?

That makes perfect sense to me.

And also, She's young. Just nineteen. She's not engaged or getting married anytime soon. What is there to confirm or deny? Are we seriously balking at her refusal to tell us who she is intimate with?

Golnaz said...

Im sorry Gozde, I completely disagree with you here.

Plenty of actors/actresses have changed their tune as they have gotten more famous and have become targets for gossip mags.

Penelope Cruz used to talk a lot about Tom Cruise all the time when she was dating him, but now she uses the same lines Kristen did to say she refuses to talk about her personal life (when asked about beau Javier Bardem) because shes learned to keep that part separate. Same can be said about Kate Hudson and Reese Witherspoon. They all choose to keep their private lives separate now, even though they talked about their past loves plenty to the press before. Like Penelope saying that one thing they have learned is where to draw the line when it comes to their personal life

She talked about Michael when noone really cared. shes probably just learned now that its better not to talk about it.

Who are we to judge what she went through and tell her how to now act about her personal life. I dont blame Kristen for not wanting to talk about it anymore.

gracefulgrace said...

I agree with you jmm4832
Also if she did come out about being with Rob and it didn't work out (which is more likely under media scrutiny) the media would eat her alive. Girls everywhere who are already jealous would be hating on her.

Yves said...

I agree with others here in the hope that Kristen and Rob will continue to keep their private lives private. Setting these types of boundaries with the public will be vital to their personal and professional success.

Lisa said...

I have to agree with you, Goz.

It's fine to be private. But, be prepared for the so-called 'fiends' when you show up places together with your RayBan's and hoods for disguises.

Personally, I think that, by giving a non-answer, she's only fueling the fire and calling attention to it.

Paps are all after the elusive brass ring. Take the ring out of the equation, and no one's going to give a sweet diddle.

Jamie said...

I hated that the interviewer was like "sounds like a 'yes' to me." What? No it didn't - and this is how everything gets blown out of proportion. She answered in a very mature and classy way, but the media puts their own spin on it.

I don't understand the "putting it out there makes it dishonest" bit. I really think its just a bunch of words the media coaches have advised them to say so they don't have to answer. Which is fine. I still think if they confirmed or denied things would be better (and I'd be less curious-haha), but my opinion doesn't count today.

I think that once they start working again on separate projects the truth will come out. I can't imagine spending months away from the person im "in love" with, so perhaps there will be some sightings of them together when they aren't filming togehter.

Im still not sure if they are together or not. No one has any way of knowing except them, and they are keeping quiet.

jmm4832 said...

This obsession that the media has with "Robsten" is shameful and just perpetuates the public's fascination with it. Rob and Kristen have said time and time again they don't want to talk about it, so it's extremely obnoxious that people keep pressing for details. Ryan Seacrest is a jerk.

Gozde said...

Himm, you all make good points :) As I said I have 102 degrees fever. I got the swine flu. Shouldn't even be online. No good can come out of me babbling :)

Kathy said...

Gozde, you are so correct in your assessment! I think they are really be disingenuous-they are just flaming the whole rumor mill higher. But hey, they are still youngsters and in ten years, who will care? String us along-obviously, we love it!!:(

gracefulgrace said...

Awww get well soon Gozde *kisses Gozde's boo boo*

phosphorus said...

@ Gözde: Oh, dear. Get well soon!

Haven't been here for so long I forgot my password. Had to try ten times to remember.

dina said...

Gozde get well soon babe.

dina said...

Hey phosphorus long time no see where have you been?

Jules said...

Gozde, get well soon, chica.

I don't care if they talk about it or if they don't, if they are or if they're not or if Kristen is a lesbian.

HOWEVER, when they do suggestive photo shoots (HB) as themselves, not as Edward and Bella, and answers questions like "who is more romantic?" they are talking about their relationship indirectly and feeding the frenzy.
IMO

sue said...

Perfect answer Kristen! Its so personal. And if it is it should be yours and Robs. How smart to keep it yours... so romantic and sexy that way too! Let the world keep on wondering!! Love them both!!!

phosphorus said...

@ dina: Had to stay away because I had work to do. But not today, I caught a cold and had to stay in bed all day. Guess I missed a lot and will never be able to catch up.

yes just for one date you would go with jacop buuuut!! if it is for your entire life you would choose edward..your words mean exactly that..i love you kristen whether you r dating rob or not you make yourself and rob happy and fun..and at least your r a good friend to him..the rest is detail.

and Gozde i assume you are ill.i read these dudes comments so get well soon dear.

rosa said...

Godze-I think she learned her lesson with Angarano. But more importantly, talking about Robert and MA are two very different things. She's costars with Robert, and to elaborate about the details of their relationship on a promotional junket tour is blurring the lines between private and public and professional and promotional.

I think they are together, so it's not about denying. It's more about confirming, and I totally believe, if you look at how Kristen has been handled in the media since summer when the love rumors started heating up, I totally believe Kristen will bear the brunt of the scrutiny for being with a guy everyone wants to bed right now. lol

Kristen said so herself-she just wants to keep something for herself. Can't blame her, even if she doesn't convey that in the most gracious of terms sometimes.

keely said...

Get well soon, Gozde!!!!!!

@ Twilite:
I know it is actually non of my business and I wasn´t involved in that relationship, but I wouldn´t call the connection between Michael and Kristen "platonnic" at all;-) So that wouldn´t be my reason to not talk about any other men in my life.

Totally off topic, but all the time I was thinking about who Kristen reminded me and it was the actress who played "Sila" in an turkish soap. Whatever...

rosa said...

one more thing, gozde(I hope you feel better too!)--I think Angarano was very much a part of the publicity package last year. I think they were a real couple, but I think Summit definitely wanted to portray Robert as single with an innocent crush on his costar. That was portrayed again and again, and the way to make it clear it wasn't anything more than good friends with cehmistry, was to make sure Michael was known among the fanbase. Seriously, every fan could point him out at events, they knew his name...he was a part of the package at one point I think.

RPlover said...

that sucks, Gozde, hope you feel better soon!!

I don't comment on this topic anymore because it's not my business and it gives me a headache. :))

dina said...

@phosphorus get well soon I saw you there and it was like I came across an old friend, robsessed does that to us right?

Swan flu and swan girl to hard to handle. LOL

Anonymous said...

I agree, if kristen were to say yes we are dating it wouldn't be enough the press would press on with ?'s like did you cheat on Michael or try and say Rob is cheating on Kristen now or vice versa... they can't win so I think they feel like "no, we're gonna keep this to ourselves, because we can" they have so little control of other things, like taking a walk down the street!

Jules said...

@rosa, anything is posible, but why would Michael agree to that? What would be his reason for covering for his ex-gf and her current love interest? If that's true, I feel sorry for the guy. :D

KinTheFlo said...

Oh man the Xpose team really pissed me off. "I'm scared" or whatever the Eff she said. that as horrid..deplorable in my opinion.

I'm in agreement with the commentors about keeping it private. They are hunted down daily people. Their private life is the one thing they've got. I say let them keep it. Let them keep that fraction of their lives while the paps and psycho fans try to find out everything they can.

I hope they find some happiness with each other however long they can. Can you imagine only being able to kiss and hold hands in secure locations. Gah! Not being able to grind on the dance floor or kiss in a restaurant..at 19 yrs old. Crap!

Loisada said...

Gozde: in my mind, there is simply no comparison btwn the 2 situations. It would seem that Kristen has been through the school of hard knocks, and learned the tough way that it wasn't "okay" to talk about boyfriends and private feelings because it turned the relationship into a commodity and in her view sullied it. She learned that lesson with Angarano... not just recently. She stopped talking about Michael, and has refused to ever say exactly how or when their relationship ended.

She's simply following the same strategy now when clobbered with all the Rob questions. And now, more than ever, her personal life is an enormous commodity being pimped by all kinds of media outlets. Lots of celebrities play that game, but can you imagine how it must feel at the end of the day: like you're the worst kind of whore I would imagine.

I think she's doing all she can to avoid that, the only way she knows how, by drawing a hard line in the sand. I commend her for it. It is simply not our business, period.

And from a old-fashioned standpoint, this is actually par for the course. You tell the world that you love someone when you make a formal engagement announcement. Before that, no one expects you to make a clear commitment and "define" your relationship. Should they be expected to do it, just because they are celebrities? In that case, their lives would truly no longer be their own. Ouch!

Donna said...

Bahaha, I love how she answers that question so diplomatically and the interviewer just proves her point by going "That sounds like a 'yes' to me!" Really, buddy? Cause it actually sounded like a completely neutral answer.

I agree that she has gotten more mature and calm in interviews. She seems much more comfortable in her own skin which is good. She's still kind of awkward and ansty, but that's part of who she is and I kind of get it now; I would be the same if people were always asking me these crazy questions!

phosphorus said...

@ dina: Yeah, I know what you mean. Nice to see that some of the usual crowd are still around.

Loisada said...

ps Goz... Take care of yourself and get well fast.

rosa said...

jules-oh, let me clarify. It's not a huge conspiracy I'm talking about, I should be careful. lol

It's more the studio had no problem at all with having Kristen talk about him a lot, or hiim being in half the photos at events. Many SOs are usually on the sidewings like that, but Michael's presence was often captured in the whole thing.

I noticed this last summer with a friend, when I wasn't even following Twilight that much. And I'm sitting with a friend and her sister, and friend is in PR. And the little sister showed us shots of a promotion R/K did in Rome, and the little sister goes, "Look! That guy just to the right of Kristen, that's her real boyfriend, Michael Angarano."

Me and my friend looked at eachother and were, like huh. lol

So, being a part of the publicity package I didn't mean like formally. More that his presence was not kept to the side but encouraged to be more front and center,a nd I don't think it was by chance. The studio had a definite public image portrayal they were going for with Kristen and Robert, and it did not include them being torrid lovers.

Gracie said...

I'm with you Godze. I think Kristen is making things worst and feeding the fiend by not answering the question. Kinda of damn if you do damn if you don't. But, what they are doing by not answereing is not working either. But, it's their life so whatever. I've been hovering and notice a lot of Kristen stuff lately....Hey! I thought this was a Rob site?

Godze feel better.

anna F said...

The real problem with Kristen's awser is that it's longwinded and weird.
Why doesn't she simply say: "this crazy year and all those tabloids obsessed with my private life have taught me one thing: that I should not have talked about my private life at all before, and I have decided to not talk about it at all in the future."
That or a simple NO COMMENT.

But she goes on and doesn't really make sense. She's like fumbling for excuses, although it is her right to want to keep her private life out of interviews.


Rob's answer to Letterman was a lot straighter, that he had been avoiding answering that question, or something like that. He admitted it was deliberate. Then again, Letterman cut him off with his "bit me" thing, so who knows what might have followed that sentence?

Jules said...

Rosa, thanks for clarifying. That makes more sense.
Gracie, I know eh. We want Rob! Lots and lots of Rob, with tiny sprinkles of Kristen & TayTay and a dollop of the Brit Pack.

pauleta said...

I started following Kristen back in the days with into the wild.
Even then, when she was asked about her personnal life , she was unconffotable,she always stated it was bizzare to talk about her personnal life.
When twilight came out, they were picture of her and Angerano out there but not that much if you really think about it. Since they knew each other for 6 years.
she was a little bit obliged to andswers the question about her dating life and even when she did you didn't learn much from her. Only that they were best friend forever and have been for a long time. You don't have that much picture of them as a couple ; so for me she was already going to this path with the personnal life topic.

But they were a lot of rumor she needed to shut down. Hence the famous quotes in Nylon magazine, the ryan seacrest one. And also michael went everywhere with her but stays in the shadow.

Now she has learn from twilight mania that her personnal life is the only think she can controlled. A lot of people have made the remark that this prom tour she was more at ease but like she has explained herself is all about control what she can and accepted that you can't control a lot of things.


I personally don't want her to date rob. Because rob's fan 're too crazy and i want shipper to find something else to do in their life.

I would like to see her with an indie rock musician or Tomstu just to pissed shippers of or maybe the english guy from her next movie.

lionfire said...

i don't think there's a comparison to be made here, as the circumstances are completely different.
all that aside, she's 19! 19, for god sake-why couldn't she change her mind? and as for HB interview; maybe they were just fed up with everything. maybe they weren't; and who are we to tell them on which questions they should or shouldn't answer? that's their own life and answers to give, really.
and rob has the same policy, so he's to "blame" as much as kristen.

pauleta said...

rosa, i don't agree with you about michael being a publicity whateever.

If you look at kristen interviews last year they're really few of them where she mentionned her ex boyfriend. It was always in reponse to robsten crap. And she will go , no i already have a good buddy. She never brings him in coversation.
He was at the premiere with her but rarely photographed together.

I think this robsten mess was was born because of twilight tuesday interviews.
Shippers saw a closeness and rob gushing about her and kristen admitting he bought her doomed love and so on..

That is where all this chemestry stuff started. And this two were so naive back then to admitted they build they chemestry on last tango in paris a rated movie and spend all the preproduction in kristen dinning room table.

rpattzgirl said...

Get well Gozde, we miss you..

I don't really comment on Robsten,,,but I will break my own rule..

There's no comparison when she dated Michael, no one cared then, about her or him..

This is way different..

Ok, nuff said on that!

ADM said...

Get well soon Gozde.

jmm4832 said...

Gozde, I'm so very sorry you have the swine flu. Hope you get better soon.

I just have a couple of other points to make. First, to me it's way obvious that Rob and Kristen are dating and I don't know why people still need a verbal confirmation of that. They have already "come out." Second, think back to when you were 19 and 23. Wouldn't you have been upset if paps followed you everywhere and kept asking questions about your love life? Wouldn't you feel violated and afraid of being under constant scrutiny? And Rob knows that no matter who he dates that will be the deal. This beautiful man deserves to have a private life. He's not really a sex symbol to be shared by everyone.

Anonymous said...

i think that kristen just want to keep it private because if she said yes it looks like she cheated on michael. and the pappz would go crazy. another brangelina.

Anonymous said...

I am totally weary of the 'are-they-or-aren't-they. I am interested in Rob - not Kristen. Their avoidance of the question is a form of attention seeking. The Harper Bazzar pictoral was certainly a form of privacy seeking.

Remember Me looks to be so refreshing

Becky said...

I think Rob should date someone a little more mature maybe his age or a little older...someone who is more comfortable with herself and can and give him some confidence. KStew seems like she has alot of issues and hostility whereas Rob is so sweet and open. Her attitude does not suit him in my opinion. She is not yet a fully formed adult so I understand her behavior and don't hold it against her, but I hope she doesn't turn Rob into some depressed, self absorbed, self important creature. ICK.

Anonymous said...

@becky i was thinking about that too. i want the old happy Rob we fell in love with. they are so grouch together. don't want him to turn into depressed, self absorbed, self important creature. idk why but a model next to Rob always come to mind.maybe because she can just strut her butt to the pappz and not care about those lowlife. LOL

chaos said...

As always, when I cannot sleep, you ladies make me good company...

Girls, he is not going to marry her. They are both too young. IF they are together, let them enjoy themselves for as long as it lasts.
What can be better than that?

If they are not together (hell! I don't care a thing to know that), they you can make a line and get in it...

katie said...

lol, Kristen didn't exactly make these words up all by herself most likely. There's a "game plan" here, if you watch the promotional junkets. Robert has "his" line he uses, Kristen has "her" lines she uses. They work in tandem too. Robert emphasizes how close they are without giving specifics, Kristen emphasizes that she needs to keep somethings private.

They have people around him who are helping them work on their media game. They BOTH were so proud of not being media trained last year-and it came back to bite them in the ass.

This year, especially with all the relationship rumors, they were much more prepared and stuck to a script of sorts.

So, don't blame her too much for what she said, or him either. I highly doubt they are talking off the cuff at this point. They've learned.

Gwen Cooper 426 said...

Honestly, bit freaked by some of the comments here. Trying to keep a sense of humor, but...

These are two real people, with real lives. They can date---or not date---whomever they please. And it really is NO ONE'S business but theirs, IMO.

I can't imagine having some interviewer asking me details of my first kiss, first time, favorite morning after breakfast, etc. SQUICK!!! And I'd likely slug anyone telling me who they thought I should or shouldn't date.

Rob and Kristen are actors who make movies I like. Just as I'm not likely to share my personal life with complete strangers, I don't expect them to. I mean, seriously. Some things are, by definition, private.

And don't get me started on how freaking scary I think the paparazzi are...

riley said...

Robert is very charming and smart and intelligent and worldy in some ways. But he comes off a little young to me actually at times. I actually see him with someone younger. Kristen's nineteen but most of her coworkers say she's going on 30, so maybe she's a good mix of young and old for him.

rosa said...

Pauleta-my thing is this: Robert was given a certain persona that his fangirls cling to: a boy all alone in his apartment microwaving hotpockets while reading faction at night.lol

Kristen's persona: Veteran child actress with her boyfriend of 14 years, Michael Angarano. Never mind she's only 18. lol

Here's my main question: why does almost every fan know MA's name, how long Kristen's been with them, and what he looks like?

Think of any other movie with ayoung actress, and most likely no one could recall such details.

All I'm saying is I don't think it's by chance. It's part of the whole lore of public personas for the two stars of the franchise if you ask me.

lallieb said...

First off, Gozde, get well soon and take care of that fever. Maybe if I tell you that every time I go to this site, it's like Christmas morning with yet another great gift to open, will help you feel better. I don't know how you do it, I bow down to you, girl. Great thoughtful comments as always and I've read them all. I once swore never to comment on K&R relationship (notice I don't say Robsten)ever again and I have violated that too many times. Now it may get weird, but tonight while semi-sleeping on the train home I had a "vision" of them together (really together), it wasn't passionate or embarrassing, they were just laughing and giggling in an intimate moment. For the first time, it made sense after all I've seen and heard about those two. Despite my "vision" I do believe they deserve to keep it private. I do think their responses to "the question" only adds to the frenzy and speculaton, but on the other hand, many other posters have very nicely articulated why if they admitted it, would only make it worse for them in the media. I'm an older fan and have no reason to care one way or the other. Just want to see Rob happy, confident, and secure enough to handle his mega-stardom, and if Kristen is his port in the storm, and vice-versa, let them be. P.S. The HB interview I thought most revealing if anyone wants to know about their relationship.

TwiHeart said...

Get well soon Goz!!!
I rarely disagree with you and I've thought that too - but come to the conclusion that it is different in this case. Not only because they have so much attention on them - but it has to be a relatively new relaysh. So I understand her not wanting to say the if/when/why/how - it's a slippery slope once you give one bit away. No one will be satisfied. And you know - as we've seen here - people are gonna say, and think what they want - so I think she's right - does it matter what she says?? Yes. No. Sometimes. Not my business.

Shani said...

I concur on it being two different situations being that MA was a nobody and Rob is an international celeb. Things have changed and Kris game plan has changed accordingly.

She saw first hand how everyone tore down her relationship with MA. And for whatever reason it failed in the end, but the media and fan scrutiny didn't help either. She has learned that valuable lesson and wants to hold onto that piece of her life. Why soil it? That's the part where she feels comfort and security.

Shani said...

I forgot. Get well soon Goz.

femroc said...

The minute they confirm that they are dating or in love or whatever.........the very next minute the press and all will be trying to break them up - we've seen it time and time again.

We know they have to be involved deeply in some way - they've been through too much together and no one in the world understands them like they do each other with all the madness in their lives.......if they're not together they would be totally alone cause no one else could relate to them. And I don't care HOW good of actors they are - you can't just turn off those kind of passionate feelings instantly when the director says 'CUT' - not after 3 movies and all this time.

Even posing for that VF cover where they were hugging so close and she had that backless dress on......I was thinking, man, if I were a dude I'd be totally .......you know.........what he said in How to Be!! lol

Jenna said...

@gozde:i completely agree with you. i understand that her profile has gone up a bit since the twilight movies came out but her and mike were together at the beginning of all of it and she always confirmed they were together. i feel the attention really isn't on her its on rob. not that i fault her for protecting herself because i respect her for that.

and i don't think this is any different to any of the other answers she's been giving. whenever asked questions about her realtionships (lately) she always seems to mention the cast as a whole or at least Rob and Taylor together. i don't know if that is to diffuse the robsten focus and make it seem like the relationship between the two is similar (maybe it really is) but i feel like i've heard this answer from her for a while now. maybe their status is just wishy-washy since they are going to be doing so much apart for the next yr that she doesn't want to be definitive...or maybe she just really doesn't want to mention squat about her private life anymore...either way have to give her props for wanting to protect herself and everyone she cares for/works with!

Jenna said...

@ donna: i also agree with you about the neutrality of the answer. its the same answer we've been hearing for a while. but it just goes to show what kristen said was right, no matter what i say people are going to think i'm tipping them either way. unless she says "yes" or "no" then nobody knows the actual truth.

dabby said...

maybe she's afraid to be hated more when she says yes and i truly understand her but,a "no comment" is better than elaborating on something that you can't talk about.

Marna said...

anna F, I agree completely with you. I think she can decide to not talk about her life anymore, but that's what she should say. Not some crap about it being dishonest.

KristyH said...

I think what she's trying to say is that once it becomes a reality, once they say "yes this is what it is," they open the door to every scrunity imaginable and they want to keep something for themselves. I can't imagine trying to maintain a relationship with someone when everything you do is splashed across the tabloids and the internet. If he is spotted hugging a fan, oh he is cheating. If she has lunch with a friend, oh she's cheating. They just want to enjoy a little bit of secrecy because they really mean something to each other.

kmountainlion said...

Gozde, Thanks for what you bring to us. Feel better!

isabel said...

she had no problem talking about dating michael...how he was her celebrity crush, how they met etc..
so whats the problem??
this is all kristen
the only reason they are not "public " is because he must be respecting her wishes...i dont think any man is going to deny his woman
COME ON kristen...isnt he worth it? isnt he worth whatever perceived "bullsh*t" or backlsh or whatever she thinks she is going to face?
she is full of it
she should be all in
and whatever comes with it

jmm4832 said...

Wow, can we cool it with the Kristen hate here? I understand a lot of people don't like her but it seems a little excessive.

Rob's Bitch said...

How about instead of talking about their relationship, they just display it a bit? Just a little PDA confirmation? How about a PDA press conference - so the paps don't get the satisfaction of catching them. Is that really too much to ask?

I guess I'm just a pervy voyeur... what can I say?

I feel bad for them if they are deliberately altering their behavior around each other because of the paps - that would suck.

Anonymous said...

can't expect an honest answer from her she has a publicist who decides whats good for her publicity.i am not a fan of hers i care only for Rob. i just hope that whats good for her translates also as whats good for Rob.

Karina said...

I think they are just screwed honestly, they can't please everybody.

YES, Kristen has a personal publicist. BUt please, Robert is guarded by that bulldog of a studio publicist and he can't even speak for himself at this point. It's totally sad.

Robert's manager and agent, on top of it, serve as his publicists as a result.

So, no, Kristen is not acting alone with the strategy they have in place of neither confirming or denying.

Robert plays an active role, he uses similar language as Kristen. They don't want to share whatever it is they have with us.

I don't really get the one sided argument that Kristen is playing games. They are simply playing the strategy that's probably been thought up by them as well as their people.

I don't think she truly understands what she is saying some of the time. To "own" something is to accept responsibility for it; to be upfront. She is not. What she should be saying is that she is not paid for her personal life and she should charmingly asked to change the topic. The more words she uses, the more sense she loses.

Robert has said repeatedly that he wants to retain some mystery. He was frustrated that he HAD to give interviews because that removed some of the control from him. But he CAN keep people guessing about his love life - so he does. And Kristen is a perfect accomplice.

CW mentioned that they are having fun with the speculation. I think there is just as much evidence for them being friends as there is for there being more. People are projecting onto them. They have been so stinking clear about this.

I do miss his smiles.

I Haven't read most of what has been written but like the woman who introduced the video, am SCARED of her - how can their personality march? Rob seems like an easy person and happy whereas this girl seems like the most difficult person to understand and to be honest if it was left to her - she would effing Twilight fans openly she is only being polite because she is forced into it. I still question their relationship whether it exists or not. they just don't march at all - they look good together but that is just where it ends. Even Billy Burke said he was scared of her - I am an adult but I am too - really!

Rosa maybe fans Know michael name because fans are too obsessed with celibrity.

Maybe you're right about the pr thing. But t just buggs me, because it's like some crazy shippers who thinks she never dated michael and he was just publicity. The poor guy not only they hate him but hey also think he 's stupid enough to be a toy.

How come i know what she ate two days ago? Because someone put it on twitter.
How come i Know the brand of her close? Because fans do research to find out.
How do i happen to know the names of her brothers, which one is adopted and all that? she never mentionned it she just says she has brother.

Back then when twilight was filmed, Miichael were on set with her a lot but we never have photos of that because no one cared. Is the fans who thinks that they have to know everymove their celebrity make who keep this story in the news.

Also when twilight came out she wasn't legal yet and she needed her people around more. It was always other michael or her brother cameron who travelled with her.


Like this interview for example if you listen to it and you don't spend an awful lot of time commenting on the fiend maybe journalist will stop at one point.


By now this is my view on this. Most likely this two at one point are going to date or are already doing it. Do i like the idea? No? Because fans are cruel. they will trow her under a bus. And i don't whant that for her.

But at the same time whom am i to say what is good for her or him?
When i was 19, i dated my best friend and others guys all the time. So this kids need to experience life.

pauletta-I mentioned earlier it has nothing to do with the actual relationship, I think think MA and KS were obviously in a steady one for it to last for years.

It's more about public image and what the studio wanted presented to the public. Hollywood is built on imagery and fantasy, not reality.

Let's be honest, summit knew by summer that CH had done a less than bang up job on Twilight, that's why they didn't allow critics to post any reviews until the day it opened.

What they DID have though was an attractive cast and a ready made fanbase and they did what they could to best strengthen those plusses. They worked with some of the bigger groups like twilight moms to keep the fanbase engaged. and they worked the heck out of robert and kristen to promote the movie for months.

THere really isn't anything underhanded even with what they did. They simply made the fact Kristen was "taken" a visual and concrete thing by having her bf's presence be seen at events.

That's not helping shippers' fantasies, and if you think about it from a pr perspective, it's smart. They've got four movies to selll chemistry, you don't start out of the gates with a four movie franchise making the fans think the two stars ar ein a torrid love affair.

Instead, and if you watch the promotions, the pr theme is quite apparent, Robert seems like a quiet, shy, single guy with an innocent crush on his costar, while making Kristen look taken but close to Robert as a friend at the same time. A very safe way to package the leads relationship publicly while ensuring the public they have oodles of chemistry onscreen

I agree with Rose.

I was a casual observer of twilight last year, not a rabid fan. And even I knew Kristen's bf's name and what he looked like, because he was in frame half the time at events.

They did want Robert to be presented to the public in a very particular way, he needed to be accessible and single but still make it clear he had great chemistry with Kristen.

You hit two birds with one stone by simply making the fans know who her boyfriend is and how long she's been with him.

Rosa, I'm sorry but I'm just not buying it - that "the studio" has been orchestrating photos and telling them what to do and how to act. Maybe I'm being naive. But for god's sake, has anyone listened to Kristen. Does she seriously sound like someone who would put up with having her BF used or herself. She is not hugely liked because she says what she thinks and has made it very clear that she will not apologize for being herself, for better or worse. Keep in mind she was born and raised around the business, ie, not likely to be intimidated by the machine. The fact that Rob has refused to get a publicist (that may have changed)also indicates he is not interested in public image (for better or worse). I'm not saying that the suits at Summit may have offered suggestions about how they should conduct themselves, and I would have love to have been a fly on the wall. I'm thinking there was some eye rolling. Gone are the days when the studio dictated the perception of their actors private lives and as young as they are, Rob and Kristen just don't seem that malleable if such a thing was even proposed. It wouldn't even be necessary, as we know now. All Summit had to do was throw them out there, together, alone, with Taylor, with CW, and book them at every conceivable press/publicity opportunity around the globe. The result is now history: $140+ million for opening weekend. Yup, they're celebrating big time. Rob, Kristen, Taylor, and Chris, still recovering and trying to figure out what time zone they're in!

I totally agree with Gwen Cooper 426; just because they're celebrities, it doesn't mean the public has the right to know everything (or even anything) about their private lives. It doesn't matter what age you are, I think anyone would be angry at being asked personal questions from strangers.
