Is Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart's Romance A Big Publicity Stunt?

Is Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart's Romance A Big Publicity Stunt?-photo

Sit down everyone: this news might be a little hard to take.

PopEater is theorizing that Eclipse stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's romance is as fake as Edward Cullen's sparkly skin.

While the two stars alternate between denying and hinting at their relationship, the two do seem awfully close and the couple is often spotted out on dates together. However, PopEater wonders aloud if maybe KStew and RPattz's romance is all just a big publicity stunt planned by Summit Entertainment–the people who put out the Twilight Saga.

Could it be a publicity romance? It is hard to say since the two stars are both extremely private. We rarely hear about Rob or Kristen out with anyone else and Kristen has publicly said she would never talk about her relationships to the press. So, even if she was dating Rob, she would probably never open up about it.

Then again–as PopEater points out–the possible romance between the 20-year-old Kristen and 24-year-old Rob has been a great way to whip up Twilight fever amongst the Twihards. The first two films of the Twilight Saga have grossed more than $1.1 billion. However, we don't really think the possibility of an off-screen romance between the actors who play Bella and Edward is what is really driving ticket sales.

In the end, we will probably never know if Rob and KStew are dating until they either get married or start going out publicly with other people.

Do you think Rob and Kris' relationship is a big publicity stunt?

    The way Rob & Kristen look at each other, there's no way they're faking their feelings for each other. I think it's true love. Let them have fun together while they're still young. They adore each other, even as friends.

    and i believe that its so stupid for someone to believe that people actually watches a movie just because they think that the main characters are dating in real life?! like seriously, where did you get that stupid theory? you should go to school and sharpen up. a love movie will sell if the chemistry is there and if the story is good. that's it. so leave them alone!

    i remember robert pattinson in one of his interviews that he clearly said he wouldn't sell his personal relationships/private life just to get money. because clearly, he doesn't need it. it wouldn't affect the ticket sales. that's why they keep their relationship secret is because of people like you who think its a PR stunt! Coz no matter what they do, even if they admit it, you will still stay its a PR stunt right? so either ways, they'll never win. so why bother.

    I think that people should just leave them alone and let them keep their lives private!! I don't know, I just feel like I hear too much about celebs personal lives and its effecting how I perceive them in films even if they are great actors or not. Like if an actor is a huge adulterer in real life and he's in a romantic movie where he's found "the one", all I am thinking is "This is so unbelievable!" So, I guess the less I know the better! I know that you are probably thinking, "don't get on the website or turn the channel"...but all this celeb craze is really thrust upon America whether I want to hear it or not!

    I think there is more then friendship there, but it is no one's business...also I believe that it is probably Kstew's idea to keep it secret. She had said her self awhile back, that she has learned to keep her relationships to herself, because once the Papp learn about it, if you break up, they follow you everywhere, and ask very personal questions, while you are trying to greeve Since when have the press ever cared for people's "privacy". They want money, so, they take what is "private" and make it public.

    this is so stupid !!!!everyone can see that they are a couple for reeeeealll like tottally!!!you should just watch them...they spent time together even if they dont film together like the new year ,like budapes ,england.LA....it's more then obvious!!!!!and they care about theire relationship thats why they dont talk about!!rob and kris deffenetlly dont look like those who cares about fame AT ALL!!!!! Tooootallly duuuuude... Serious, publicity stunts are good PR. Yes they are seen together because they do drugs and party together. Doesn't make them a couple. lol they are too messed up to care about what people think of their relationship. As long as she has her drugs and he has another hooker/twihard willing to please him then they are just fine hanging around each other.

  • Justme

    Well, if they were together you'd be able to tell. Look back to when they were actually dating, the drugs they were doing, etc. Unless by miracle they got their act together over the last couple of years, then to me it looks fake. She can barely give an interview on her own without being drugged up, and being a complete airhead, he is decent at it, even while on his drugs. Put them together, it makes for better PR than if they did it seperately. Twihards just don't see how really dumb she is, and how much into the drug scene they are in. Just makes me roll my eyes.

    It is extremely possible. You have to understand that these two AREN'T Bella and Edward. They're Kristen and Robert. Kristen who said that being photographed was like "being raped". Or Robert who goes out and parties and is said to be "sexting" women he met in bars. These are normal human beings who MIGHT be faking the "Bella and Edward Romance" to gain publicity for the "Twilight" film.

    Ok I knw the everybody has to make a living but Rob and Kristen business is there own. So what if they are not dating or they are. I mean all some people want to do is start rumors and make lives hell. I think they are or would be a great couple they are both extremely talented actors but their personal life is their own business.

    All the people on here saying it's not a publicity stunt are 12-year-old fangirls who are not old enough yet to tell the difference between fantasy and reality. "If it was a publicity stunt, they would have already told everyone!" I'd like to hear this person's justification for this comment. Do you think that they are just THAT honest that they'd admit to trying to trick the whole world? Think again, sweetheart. People lie.

  • guest

    I have always thought it is some kind of publicity stunt. My theory is that Kristen is a lesbian. Her "relationship" with Robert would cover that up until all the Twilight movies are finished. Think about it, would you feel the same way about the movies if you knew she was a lesbian. Just a theory. Who knows.

  • kim

    aaaaa.... the producer of the Twilight series outed them to Time magazine and said they were dating. The series does not benefit from them dating. Think of other films that have tanked when the leads date. The whole argument really holds no water. Also, this article was based on an article that Gossip Cop debunked days ago.

    I don't understand how anyone can say with any confidence that "they're so real, they wouldn't play games!" and "they are so in love and it's not a PR stunt!" Come on, they are ACTORS in HOLLYWOOD selling a franchise built around a LOVE STORY THAT APPEALS TO TEENAGE GIRLS. Remember in the beginning they laughed about how the studio wanted them to play along like they were together and then the studio shut them up right quick. I think R. and K. don't want to be sellouts and lie like Zac and Vanessa so they won't answer, while Summit spins the romance angle to keep the mystery going. Honestly I've thought for a long time that KStew is probably gay and Rob is her BFF and beard. There's no way she could come out of the closet and keep her career and the Twilight saga would IMPLODE. Poor girl, that's probably why she's so hostile and screwed up all the time and why the 2 of them look so forced and awkward whenever they're together. Mark my words, she's going to be the next Jodie Foster (hiding in the glass closet) and he will be seen with other girls once Twilight is done. I would feel sorry for them having to go along with a lie but they make plenty of money to make up for it!

    A publicity stunt? Oh I hope so. Maybe i'm the only one but I hate the idea of them being a couple (ok I only hate Kristen but that's basically the same) and the word Robsten makes me feel sick. Robsten makes me feel sick too, seriously! I don't hate Kristen, but I DO dislike her. SHE makes me feel sick sometimes. Rob could do SO much better...maybe. It's really annoying me, I can't go on the internet without hearing SOMETHING. Uh, I can't stand it to be honest.

    yes it is a stunt, they keep silent because they are getting paid playing a couple for the press. she is like a lesbian on coke with her newfound confidence in public and he is a closet manlover Ah - I see SLANDER has hit the postings now.....hope you get your ass sued.

Excuse me....but why do you hate Kristen? Do you know her? Has she done something to you that we don't know about? You sound like a whiny spoiled teenage girl who still thinks she is a princess and can have whatever she wants.

    I think she's with Taylor LOL. Did you see the pic of those three on the red carpet. Kristen is looking at Rob, Rob is looking at Kristen, and Taylor is looking at Rob like "Dude, stop staring at my girl like that" LOL. Anyway, I think its a publicity stunt, but if it's not, good for them. I still think she's with Taylor on the DL though LOL

    All I have to say is "NO sh*t." Come on, there are never pictures of them "together" in any kind of obvious way, even when they are supposedly seen cuddling at premiere parties. When they are caught doing things, like holding hands, it's within clear view of hundreds of photographers. It was pretty obvious to me from the start. It's sad how well it's worked. Kudos to Summit, I guess. Ok duh - if they are being "caught" of course that means its in front of people (photographers) or else they wouldn't have been caught. Nobody knows what is going on behind the scenes which is what they seem to protect so fervently. So your argument really holds no water. In addition, I get the impression that neither of these two would cater to the whims of a studio and fake a relationship just to satisfy some executives. They both appear to be too real about who they are to say "Oh sure - I'll pretend we're together, etc.". No way. I don't think we see the truth which is that they are quite happy together - they are both rather quirky and private and family-centered. They are not fame whores.

    I don't think that they have a real Relationship together. They're just really good friends. The Vibe on the Set is to good and a Relationshipt would break it. Summit is pushing the two, so the romance is "real" and fake at the same time.

    obviously all those who say its a stunt have living under a rock lost in space, have their heads up in the clouds because have you seen whats happened over the few years since 2007 - 2010. these two are in love accept it! so much evidence to prove it. this will not turn not like your many fake hollywood romances that don't last. Rob and Kris are the real deal their actions prove it and they will last. if you haven't been following their story over the last few years u r clueless look at the evidence it speaks for itself

  • joy

    yep these two have definitely set the standard. they are the golden couple now. love them just perfect together no one gets the other like they both do. just glad they have each other to lean on in the crazy business the are in. with all the fake phonies out there its refreshing to see genuine people who aren't afraid to speak the truth will tell it like it is, can be themselves and won't be influenced by anyone else. They are who they are what we see is what we get. love the no nonsence f u attitude from both. they actually care about acting and re: their relationship they don't owe us a thing its none of our business they are right to not say anything keep their private lives separate. business is business wish them both a happy long successful career.

  • steff17

    I think this is a little try of the press to force them to say something, because everyone (the press) is dying to get the story "if they are couple or not" I think is their a private life, not concern us!!!

    It's not a publicity stunt, Rob and Kristen aren't like that. they're not going to fake something to sell the movies. Plus, it doesn't need selling, these movies are big already! Rob and Kristen are just dating and in love. it's not that hard to understand.

  • speilberg

    you people don't have a clue do your research popeater before you speak. They are the reason twilight was so awesome - its because of these two above. anyone could have done the movie. any other two actors and it would have been just a movie but it has been successful largely in part to the real chemistry/relationship between these two. if you can't see that you are blind. there is no way this is fake for publicity just too many coiencices to prove your theory wrong. evidence speaks for its self and does not lie can not be challenged or refuted. other people including ashley green auditioned for the role of Bella but there was no one better than Kristen she owns the role. same for Edward. can you imagine if anyone other than these two were cast for the part twilight would then be just another movie. but it is not. these two made twilight epic, iconic, awesome special. no way are their actions love/ true life romance fake do your homework! stop theorizing and printing crap like this its annoying!

    I highly doubt Summit needs publicity stunt to boost up ticket sales...wether these two are an item or not it's clearly clever and sincere of them to keep it private..too many stars out there who like to flaunt their love lives to get attention already...good for the two of them for keeping their relationship special!SALUD!

    I think they are just trying to keep one aspect of their lives private. It do not think it is for publicity they get more than enough of that. She went around the world to spend her birthday with him and she wouldn't have done that for a stunt. I think they are probably together as at the very least very good friends but probably more.

    I hope its not a publicity stunt , a lot of fans especially those who love them will feel really bad for doing this stunt... But I think they are together co'z really you will sacrifice more than four years of your life or( lovelife) for this stunt?!! and if they are with other people, I t think the papz will have some news or gossips out fast, its always them only so I would think they are together. And those glances especially from Rob, they can't be just acting, its too real... Just my opinion.

  • jen

    I seriously doubt robsten would go to such extremes for publicity. you cant fake that kind of closeness whatever they might be. I think they might be more than friends but why would they want the world to know when they have no privacy now as it is. they are both great actors and the twilight saga would be fine if they werent together in real life.everybody just want s that kind of connection that they have. they really do bring edward and bella to life. they are real people though and deserve their privacy.I luv ROBSTEN and wish them luck...

    Maybe they're just friends with benefits who hook up every once in a while and are comfortable without a label on their relationship and don't want to ruin it by getting serious. Either way it's their business to disclose what they want.

    They are just talking about the Movie, if their relationship between the movie and real life is a publicity stunt meaning if they are and aren't a couple in real life, and if they aren't in a relationship and all what that says, than good, I mean if Kristen stewart won't tell the press about her Relationship with anyone who she hangs out that means they are just close friends by having a relationship with them.

    Well I don't think its a publicity stunt. If its a publicity stunt, then they would tell the public that they're dating since Twilight came out to drive ticket sales to the top. But they're always telling public that they're "good friends" only and they wont talk about their relationship. So I think its either they're not dating or they just wanted to keep their relationship a secret. But I think it would be great if Robsten is really, really together. Hehe! =)
