threatened promised, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are on the December cover of Bazaar. (Us also has the details!) And though Bella Kristen and Edward Rob don't admit that they are dating, they certainly drop hints:
First, the gentle flirting/teasing that the two share? So tell-tale! Kristen gives Rob a hard time, saying:
"Rob can barely jump rope," she tells the magazine. It's even inspired a nickname! "I call him Flippy because when he does his stunt rehearsals, he flips around," she says, imitating a penguin's walk. "And God, when he tries to run..."
RPatz counters with an accusation of his own, accusing KStew of Googling herself all the time:
"She just looks at herself," he says. "I look up my competition more than she does. I'm incredibly shallow."
What about real romance? Well, Us reports that the twosome spent the night together at Chateau Marmont on Oct. 29; and shared bagels the next morning. And Bazaar asked them, who's the more romantic of the two?
"I'd have to say Rob is," Stewart says. "I think romance is anything honest. As long as it's honest, it's so disarming." She calls his singing "heartbreaking."
And Rob has nice things to say about his costar:
Stewart, Pattinson says, is "a unique girl. You really don't meet many people like Kristen."
Plus, Rob is clearly in awe of Kristen:
"Kristen doesn't take any slack," Rob says. "She sticks to her guns — and that's difficult to do." He also thinks she's a better actor than he is. "I don't really know how to act. I'm kind of guessing everything. ... Even though I can conceptualize stuff, she can actually do it. I can make something so complex and then be like, That was pout 27." He reckons she's a better judge of character too. "She'll decide on someone a lot quicker. She has a lot more self-esteem than I do, so she's like, 'You're an idiot and I don't want to talk to you,' and I'm like, 'I'm an idiot too!' So I'll talk to an idiot for like three days before deciding."
Basically, you get the feeling that they like each other… but are exhausted by the hype, and what fame has done to their lives.
"There are like 15 different exits in this place," observes Kristen of the tactics she and the rest of the Twilight cast use to avoid the paparazzi. She adds, "Rob is more frustrated with it, but he's 23 and I'm 19. He had a couple more years to be an adult and to be independent, whereas just as I was getting to the age when it's normal to go out by yourself ..." She pauses. "But it's boring because this is all I fucking talk about."
Of course, none of this proves that they're dating… But they're obviously close. It probably sucks to try so hard to be Kristen and Rob in a relationship, when everyone wants to see Bella and Edward together, which would mean OMGTWILIGHTISREAL. Kristen's somewhat of a rebel, who prefers mens' suits to dresses and once wore a skirt with bullets on it. According to Bazaar, if she ould be an animal, she'd be a cat. "With cats, you're like, 'Come here!' And they're standing there being like, 'Fuck you!'" You sense that she doesn't want to be predictable; yet that's just what dating Rob would be. On the other hand, they're drawn to each other, and working closely together, and so on. Plus, as Us reports:
Later, during a New Moon screening, "Rob wanted a cigarette so he went outside with Kristen for about 15 minutes," a source tells Us. "They were hugging, as Rob was smoking his cigarette and then he leaned down and kissed her on the lips. He had his arm around her almost the whole time."
And if that doesn't break Twihards' brains — and hearts — this shot from Bazaar will:
