K-Stew came out to support R-Patz at his Water For Elephants movie premiere. How should you act at your BF’s big work function?

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tend to keep their romance under the radar, so it’s no surprise that she didn’t walk the red carpet at his Water For Elephants film premiere April 17 despite flying to NYC to be by his side. But should she have walked with him? How should Kristen — and how should you — behave when you’re supporting your guy at work?

Because Kristen, 21, didn’t walk the red carpet during Rob’s big night, there was no way of knowing she was even present aside from a renegade tweet from make-up artist Beau Nelson. He wrote, ““Just did Kristen Stewart for the Water For Elephants Premier. She looks stunning in J. Mendel with a dark burgundy lip!”

This was a really, really big night for R-Patz. There’s been buzz about this film, which is based on the novel by Sara Gruen, for months. It could, in fact, be a crucial moment for him in the sense that Hollywood wonders whether or not he can be an A-list actor or if he’s just breathtaking playing a vampire.  In terms of whether or not Kristen did the right thing, you bet she did!

If she had walked the red carpet with him, the night would have been more about them as a couple, not him as an actor on his own. There’s my first thumbs up to her. Secondly, we all know she hates getting dressed up and prefers sneakers and jeans to fancy dresses. Second thumbs up: she made a huge effort for something that she wasn’t forced to go to. Lastly, she flew across the country from LA to NYC to support him. That’s huge. That’s more than effort — that’s love. Three thumbs up — a winning way for a girlfriend to be!

If you find yourself in a similar situation (you know, minus the red carpet and movie stars), be as supportive as possible. If your guy is having a really big moment or night at work, he may even be nervous — so keep calm and strong; be a rock. Play the part: dress nicely. Don’t be cold or nervous when you meet his boss: if you’re warm and friendly it will be a reflection on him. Remember, you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar!
