Pattinson and Stewart back together
The summer’s longest romantic saga appeared to have reached a happy ending with the news that Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart had reconciled. Pattinson appears to have forgiven Stewart for her fling with film director Rupert Sanders.
After separating from Stewart, Pattinson had been staying at the ranch of Reece Witherspoon, but had become concerned about the level of vitriol directed at Stewart on Twilight fans’ forums. Stewart’s father had asked him to consider a reconciliation. Obviously Pattinson was receptive to the idea.
"They pretty much decided they couldn’t live without each other," a friend told The Sun. "Kristen poured her heart out to Robert and told him it was a one-off and a mistake. Rob sees it as Kristen made a really stupid mistake. After a lot of long tearful talks, they’ve worked it out. Rob can see how truly sorry Kristen is and has totally forgiven her. They really do love each other."
The timing of the reconciliation is fortuitous. In November the couple will embark on an intensive publicity campaign in support of the latest Twilight film Breaking Dawn Part 2. It would have been intolerable for the pair to have had to face the media spotlight if they were still separated.
The couple have moved into an apartment in the same complex as another high-profile Hollywood couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Now they must wait to see whether the notoriously protective Twilight fanbase are as ready to forgive Stewart as Pattinson has been.
