I don't want to dwell on the heartbreak of this past weekend.
I don't want to debate gun control.
Mental health issues.
All worthy topics...
But not on a Robert Pattinson blog... Right?
Reading about Rob and Kristen
is a way to step away from 'real' life...
have a laugh.
Enjoy a moment.
So let's see...
I love this picture.
It is no doubt
one of my favorite pictures of Rob and Kristen.
(I wonder how many times I've posted this...)
I think his face says it all.
Looking at this picture...
makes me smile.
Smiling is good.
It sure beats the hell out of people
who continue hating (and yes... you DO hate her)
a young girl they do not know...
for imagined slights she has supposedly
perpetrated against them.
Does even that make sense?
I'm not sure what it is about Kristen
that makes me want to protect her.
I really don't.
Is it because she is so tiny
and so easily gets swallowed up in a crowd?
Is it because she is painfully shy
and thus almost always misunderstood?
Is it because she continues to do what she loves to do
despite the incredible amount of scrutiny and criticism
she receives for even the most mundane of things?
Is it because she is harassed and stalked relentlessly?
Is it because she is held to standards no one else
is ever held to?
Is it because she's the underdog?
Over the weekend...
Who has no real knowledge of Rob or Kristen
Doesn't read gossip mags
is essentially clueless when it comes to this fandom
(which is how I like it)
saw a picture of Kristen
"Oh look, that girl who never smiles
is actually smiling"
Are you kidding me?
He actually said this?
So I replied
"Do you even know what you are talking about?
She smiles ALL the time.
Why would you say that?"
"I don't know. I read it somewhere.
And its true. She never smiles."
"OK, so what do you know about
Kristen Stewart that you can say
Kristen Stewart that you can say
with such absolute conviction
that she never smiles?
Have you ever watched her talk?
Have you ever paid attention
in any way whatsoever to her?
Do you know ANYTHING about her at all?"
I got a bit heated.
Because this is exactly what happens.
Kristen doesn't smile on a red carpet...
and suddenly she never smiles.
And that's what rags and hags focus on.
And that's what idiot brothers pick up on.
So I added...
" She happens to smile quite a lot, actually.
She smiles when she's happy.
She doesn't force a smile to please a crowd.
If you really want to see her smile
Take a look at her when shes with Robert."
He just looked at me.
And then I realized I was all defending Kristen
over something stupid my brother said.
(Needless to say, he did admit that he was wrong
and just repeating what he had read.)
Who does that?
Why did I feel this need to do that?
I guess I defend her because I like her.
I like that shes awkward and nervous
and not all polished and shiny.
I like that sometimes she doesn't give a shit
what she is wearing and will put on a pair
of comfortable shoes with a fancy dress.
I like that she prefers vintage t-shirts and jeans...
Especially her deliciously handsome boyfriend's t-shirts.
I like that she swears like a sailor
and loves her animals.
I like how she admits to her mistakes...
And I love how she loves Rob.
Because I adore Rob.
And before anyone sends me the
SHOUTY ALL CAPS emails...
I defend Rob too.
He just doesn't get the same kind of vicious attacks
as Kristen gets every minute of every hour.
(at least I don't see them)
You have to admire both Rob and Kristen's
tenacity to be in this relationship.
The force is strong with these two.
Imagine dealing with all the bullshit
they have been dealing with for the past 4 years.
The Rags and Hags trying to tear them apart...
The intense scrutiny of every word...
every fucking breath.
And since July
It has only gotten worse.
Rob and Kristen REMAIN.
Through it all...
Even more determined than before...
They still stand
Side by side.
The Rags and Hags had it all figured out...
or so they thought.
Rob and Kristen were
"never ever getting back together"
Shuts you RIGHT DOWN!
Must suck to be wrong
ALL the damn time.
All they had to do was keep living their life
the way they always have...
No matter what anyone else thinks.
"I've never experienced working on the same movie
for such a long time other than the twilight saga.
Maybe that's why all the characters stay in my heart.
Thinking about them, is like looking back at your good old
high school days.
Rob hasn't changed since the first time I met him.
He always explores his limits,
and he makes me feel loved and cherished.
He's a big part of my life now."
“People think they knew a lot about me before.
They know even less now.
People will project whatever.
It’s a huge form of entertainment.
As soon as you step outside your own life and look at it
like that and think that you can shape something —
you need to live your life.
I’m just going to live my life, actually,”
"Knowing that you'll always keep something special
no matter what happens,
is something that has made an impact in my life.
That's one of the biggest lessons I've received in life."
“The only relief when it comes to Twilight is that the story is done,”
she says matter-of-factly.
“I start every project to finish the motherfucker,
and to extend that [mentality] over a five-year period
adapting all of these treasured moments over four books,
it was constantly worrying.” She pauses.
“But as long as people’s perspective of me
doesn't keep me from doing what I want to do,
it doesn't matter.”
This post is brought to you by what matters.
1. Tell the people in your life you love them.
Cherish your children.
2. Rob and Kristen have figured out
They don't give a shit what anyone else
says or thinks...
They obviously already know.
3. Thomas Sturridge.
He fucking matters.
But so fucking true.
5. I actually LOVE
that Rob and Kristen are
under the radar right now
They've earn their peace.
Just know that somewhere
behind that curtain...
Rob and Kristen
That's all that matters.
Until next time.
Bye for now
