It appears as though the romance between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson was doomed from the start.
The former couple dated on-and-off for several years while making the Twilight films, and but things took a turn for the worse when it was revealed that Stewart had cheated on Pattinson with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.
Although the two would reunite one last time, it seemed as though the infidelity was too much for them to take, and they ended things for good in 2013.
However, Stewart is now saying that the scandal was not the only reason for their split.
During an interview with The New York Times Style Magazine, the 26-year-old actress revealed that it was the constant media scrutiny and attention that ultimately led to the end of ‘Robsten.’
“People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product,” she explained. “It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me. It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.”
These days, both have moved on, with Stewart dating her former assistant Alicia Cargile and Pattinson engaged to singer FKA Twigs.
Stewart is also pretty open about her love life these days, and she says her decision was intentional.
“I would never talk about any of my relationships before, but once I started dating girls it seemed like there was an opportunity to represent something really positive,” she said. “I still want to protect my personal life, but I don’t want to seem like I’m protecting the idea, so that does sort of feel like I owe something to people.”
