Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart’s relationship may be in ruins, but they will eternally be Edward and Bella.

And the pair proves it posing as the Twilight lovers on the Entertainment Weekly’s Fall Movie Preview issue.

In a feature about the franchise’s upcoming final film, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2, director Bill Condon addresses the scandal plaguing Pattinson and Stewart’s three-year romance, after incriminating photos of Stewart and her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, surfaced last month, forcing her to admit to an affair.

What does Condon have to say about the embattled longtime lovers?

“The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it%u2019s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that,” Condon told EW. “Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon.”

“Above all,” he continued, “they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”

But as the final installment nears it November 16 debut date, it remains seen how its top stars Pattinson and Stewart will deal with an international press tour and red carpets. But Summit, the studio releasing the film, has confirm all promotion is a-go. Nancy Kirkpatrick, the company’s head of worldwide marketing, said, “While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead.”

Now in a step away from Edward Cullen, Pattinson is next up in in the David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, a twisty adaptation of a Don DeLillo novel about Gatsby-esque, whiz-kid billionaire Eric Packer who’s world turns upside down in a single day.

In new stills from the upcoming film, which hits theaters August 17, a gun-wielding Packer appears in an abandoned alley; in a hallway flashing his revolver at Benno Levin’s doorway (Paul Giamatti); and in the street leaning on his graffiti-littered limo as paparazzi snap photos of him.

Will you see Pattinson in Cosmopolis on the big screen? Weigh in below.
