They are trying, folks. They really are.
While Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart walk the red carpet of various Breaking Dawn Part 2 press events this week - and every discerning eye tries to read their body languages and glances at one another - an insider tells Us Weekly the estranged couple is on the road to recovery.
It's just bumpy at times.
"He's never going to forget what she did, but he has forgiven her," a source says of Pattinson in regard to Stewart smooching Rupert Sanders. "Almost losing him was a wake-up call for Kristen. And Rob doesn't want to be angry anymore. They want to move forward."
The insider adds that these two have "good days and bad days" and a lot of that is due to Kristen's ongoing difficulties.
Simply put: "She still feels guilty" and she worries that "the world hates her."
Still, Pattinson and Stewart are "comfortable" at these public appearances and in these media interviews, the friend concludes. The future appears bright for them.
It's "as if no scandal had occurred" at all, according to the tabloid.
