Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson — who are both at TIFF — had a dramatic relationship through their Twilight years, but Kristen couldnt be happier for his latest success!
Theres no bad blood between Kristen Stewart, 29, and Robert Pattinson, 33! Kristen expressed her support for her ex-boyfriends new role as Batman while making a red carpet appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival. “Oh man, I feel like hes the only guy who could play that part,” she gushed to Varietys Marc Malkin. “I am so happy for him, it is crazy… Im very, very happy about that. I heard [the news] and was like, Oh man! Yeah, its awesome.” The actress also agreed that Rob had the “perfect cheekbones” to play caped crusader Bruce Wayne.
Kirsten was out supporting her new film Seberg, which made its premiere at TIFF on Saturday, September 7. Rob is also in Toronto, appearing on the red carpet for his black-and-white horror film The Lighthouse — which was also directed by former Batman director Christopher Nolan. Theres no word on whether Rob and Kristen have seen each other while theyre both in the Canadian city, but the usually low-key Rob has been out and about, attending Entertainment Weeklys party on the same night.
The two were in a highly publicized relationship while shooting the Twilight films between 2009 and 2013. where they portrayed the characters of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. The tumultuous relationship ended with a break-up after Kristen was caught kissing the director of her film Snow White and the Hunstman, but they reunited for a few months before calling it quits for good in April 2013. The couple — who had an incredible amount of on-screen chemistry — shot a total of four films together for the franchise, but havent worked together since. Kristen recently opened up about the relationship in an interview with Harpers Bazaar UK, saying “When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by…so much was taken from us that, in trying to control one aspect, we were just like, No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because its ours.“
