Rob’s life has been turned upside down after Kristen’s betrayal, but he shouldn’t let that tarnish his memory of the very films that made him a star.
Robert Pattinson was understandably stunned when it was revealed to him that his girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, had cheated on him. As we’ve revealed to you exclusively, he’s so hurt that a source close to him says that “Twilight is officially ruined for him.” But I don’t think he should allow this personal betrayal to destroy the memories he has of the films that made his career.
Before Rob, 26, stepped into the role of Edward Cullen for the first time in Twilight, way back in 2008, he didn’t have much of a career. Sure, he’d been a memorable part of 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but entering the world of Twilight allowed for him to become the massively successful actor he is today.
Without Twilight, he most certainly wouldn’t have gotten to work on the projects he’s been so thrilled about lately, like Cosmopolis with famed director David Cronenberg or the period piece Bel Ami. He also wouldn’t have the considerable experience he now has, nor would he have the many friendships he’s made along the way.
I’m not attempting to diminish the considerable pain Rob must be in at the moment. Being cheated on is quite possibly one of the worst feelings in the world. When someone chooses to so callously betray the trust you’ve provided them, it feels like a sharp knife to the gut. And that stinging pain lingers for quite some time.
So, while I understand that the Twilight films are closely connected to Kristen in his mind, as they’re how he met her, I just don’t think he should put them in the same box with the other painful memories of Kristen that he’d like to avoid.
The Twilight saga means to much to Rob, professionally, and to his fans, to allow that to happen. It will be hard, but he owes it to himself to find a way to separate memories of Kristen from memories of the films.
Rob shouldn’t let Kristen’s actions ruin his memories of his Twilight experience, right, HollywoodLifers?
