Will this finally put an end to the rumors?
When asked by Great Britain's OK! magazine about his relationship with Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson gave a simple answer:
We are just very good friends.
Pattinson added that he was "young, free and single," giving hope to millions of Twilight followers around the world.
For months, of course, tabloids, fans and co-stars have speculated on the status of Stewart and Pattinson, as one report even suggested the former was pregnant with the latter's baby. Ha!
Robert Pattinson stares at his "good friend" Kristen Stewart. Do you believe their relationship is strictly platonic?
Elsewhere in the interview with OK!, Pattinson spoke on his obsessive fans and his status as a sex symbol. A few excerpts:
On female admirers: I had no idea people could get so obsessed. But it’s not scary – it’s amazing. People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not.
On strange fan encounters: One time there were these four girls, in Chicago I think, and they had all scratched their necks until they bled and then when they came up to me they had these bleeding scabs. It was gross!
On his status as a heart throb: I’m so surprised things have worked out the way they have, I just keep thinking the whole time: I don’t really have the right personality to fit in to that kind of role.
** Update: A few readers have left comments, claiming this is an old interview. If that's the case, we apologize, but the OK! article itself is dated "August 3" and shows photos from last month's Comic-Con festival.
However, if this conversation with Pattinson did, indeed, take place many months ago, it means there's still a chance that Robsten is a full-fledged couple. Holla!
