It was on TwiCrack Addict... It was on ROBsessed... It was on Twilog... And now it's HERE!
If anyone had any doubts, well... all you "NonSten" folks are gonna have to take your comeuppance, because these are NOT pics of platonic friends. Fine, fine, it's just a little hand-holding, technically, but this is not the look of "yeah it's been a tough few days/weeks/months/entire year and I just find comfort in holding your hand" hand-holding... This is "I am madly in love with you and can't wait until we are alone again so I am just going to clutch you a bit and think about what we'll do later at the hotel"-kinda hand-holding. I'm no relationship expert, but I am pulling the "I'm old and wise and know two people who are in lurv and bonking each others brains out when I see them" card here. Or maybe it's the "thanks to the paps following our every move, we can't leave our hotel, so who can blame us for finding...new and exciting ways to entertain ourselves?" look? Meh, who are we to judge?
Whatever! I am happy to see them happy! Er, ok, let me rephrase that: I am happy to see Rob happy and if it's Kristen who makes Rob happy, then... well... I guess I am happy for her by association.
JJ was not feeling so magnanimous about the whole situation...
We were doing our usual mind-meld thing: I was sitting here staring blankly at the laptop wondering why she hadn't called me yet to pester me for not having something posted yet when the phone rang. JJ, natch. Some people say they can tell who wrote the post in ten words or less by determining if there is a curse or potty reference in the first three words... In reality, you could probably just look at the clock. If it's late, it was probably me. Anyway, JJ didn't exactly share my happiness (or Robsten's!). She told me she'd just sent an email to Lorabell that said something to the effect of "I can't BELIEVE that son of a bitch is cheating on me with that skinny whore!!! Nice boots, though, KStew..." [JJ's note - A) When the fuck am I ever feeling magnanimous? B) I didn't call her a whore. Well, not this time, anyway. and C) I WANT those boots. She has RPattz and she's skinny; these are two things currently not in my posession. The least she can do is give me those fucking boots. It would be very magnanimous of her...]
I know that somewhere there are a bunch of movie execs who are sitting around thinking that it will be disastrous to have Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart come out as a couple prior to
I don't know if it matters to the younger set (and I don't really care), but I can guarantee that none of the tweeners are going to boycott the movie if they find out that Rob & Kristen are a "for real" couple. Or should I say "Kris" since we're apparently all on a chummy first-name basis here??? If you started reading Twitarded back in the day, you have probably noted the evolution of names - "Robert Pattinson" to "RPatts/RPattz" to "Rob," and "that awkward chick we're stuck with as Bella" to "KStew" to "Kristen". Regardless, if anything, it will make them - and everyone else - enjoy the movie that much more!
I don't see these guys as "real life" Edward and Bella... I DO see them as a couple of young, successful hotties who have every reason to be together. And honestly, I was REALLY afraid that "Happy Rob" would be conspicuously absent during the NM promo tour. And he's not. Clearly. So I'm happy, too!
Not quite as happy as if he were making this face at ME, but still pretty happy. Really. I'm happy. For them. No hard feelings... OK I need more wine now...
What do you guys think about Robsten? Sister Snarky thinks that their being a real couple will ruin the franchise... Or at least Breaking Dawn... Do you think it matters? Don't know? Don't care? Can't come to the computer right now because you are busy hopping a flight to London??? Do tell - in the comments!
