While Rob was dating Kristen, the two shared mutual friends, but after splitting from her he also had to split from her friends. Has the ‘Twilight’ star had trouble recovering from that tough blow — and does he wish things could go back to the way they used to be?
After Robert Pattinson, 27, and Kristen Stewart, 23, called it quits, it seems as though he had to bring the friendships he once shared with Kristen to a halt, too! What does this mean for the Twilight heartthrob?
Robert Pattinson: Lonely After Kristen Stewart?
Rob explained that fame has some pretty harsh downsides — like being unable to make friends — in an interview with GQ Italy.
“Fame is a fight to survive! Some people can’t take it and freak out, but I can understand that,” Rob said. “With paps hiding everywhere, it’s really difficult to meet new people and have new experiences.”
In the beginning of his career, Rob didn’t know much of anyone when he landed in the U.S. “When I got to the U.S. for Twilight, I only knew people who gave me a ride since I couldn’t drive. They’re my oldest friends,” Rob said in the interview.
But aside from those longtime friends, Rob found himself unfortunately lonely after his breakup with Kristen, a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the time of their May split. “Kristen has tons of friends that she can lean on, whereas most of Rob’s closest friends are in England,” the source said. “Rob isn’t going to hang with Kristen’s friends anymore, so it’s like he doesn’t have Kristen in his life anymore, and that includes all of her friends.”
And with his notoriety making it so hard for Rob to meet new friends, he may be nostalgic for his K-Stew days when friends came so easy.
Robert Gets Approval from Friends to Date Dylan
Thankfully, R-Patz’s days of loneliness might be over! Rob has reportedly gotten approval from his friends to date the beautiful model, Dylan Penn. The two have allegedly been dating as of late.
Recent reports claim that Rob’s friends have no issue with the two stars dating. “Rob needs someone secure enough to handle the pressures fame brings,” says a friend of Rob’s to Life & Style.
So things may have been tough after Rob broke up with Kristen, but it seems like he’s got everything under control now!
So, HollywoodLifers, what do YOU think? Do you think Rob misses Kristen’s friends?
