Math isn’t our strong suit, but we estimate we’ve received seventeen quadrillion tips today about the December issue of Vanity Fair, rumored to quote Robert Pattinson denying outright any romance with Kristen Stewart.
Well, Gossip Cop got the inside scoop from a source at the magazine. Here’s what went down.
In interviews conducted during July and August, Pattinson and Stewart apparently denied being an item.
“It doesn’t make any difference what you say [to the tabloids],” Pattinson told writer Evgenia Peretz. “I’ve literally been across the country [from Kristen], and it’s like, ‘Oh, they were on a secret date!’ It’s like, ‘Where? I can’t get out of my hotel room!’”
At the time, Peretz also reports that Stewart said, “It’s so retarded. We’re characters in this comic book.”
Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the pair in “Twilight,” however, is quoted as saying, “What Rob and Kristen had is a multitude of feelings for each other. Complex feelings for each other. It was what we needed. Complex, intense fascination.”
That was this past summer.
Since those interviews were conducted, it has been reported that Pattinson and Stewart were seen at several concerts together, sharing meals, and otherwise appearing close.
According to a rep for Vanity Fair, shortly before the interview was turned in, Peretz contacted reps for both actors and Summit Entertainment to again confirm or deny a possible relationship, and suddenly this time they would not offer a comment.
So while the article’s text says Pattinson tells Peretz rumors of a love affair were false and supplies the aforementioned quotes, it’s important to note that those statements are months old and may not reflect current circumstances.
