Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may still publicly deny having a romantic relationship with each other, but those around them tell a different story. In a new interview with Vanity Fair, even Pattinson himself couldn’t help talking about Stewart’s influence on him.
“She’s influenced how I’ve done all the Twilight stuff. It’s quite nice to have someone who is genuinely indifferent to the whole spectacle of everything,” the British actor revealed. He also went on to dismiss tabloid stories of a romance with his co-star: “It doesn’t make a difference what you say. I’ve literally been across the country [from Kristen], and it’s like ‘oh, they were on secret dates!’”
Though Stewart also chimed in with a denial (“It’s so retarded. We’re characters in a comic book,” she said), Hardwicke- the director of the first movie in the vampire franchise- recalls the two stars’ “nervous attraction” to one another.
“What Rob and Kristen had is a multitude of feelings for each other. Complex feelings for each other,” she said. “It was what we needed. Complex, intense fascination.”
