Pattinson is also writing a script with his girlfriend, the actress Kristen Stewart, that he met during Twilight. “It’s not for now. We’re not going to hurry to work together again. We know it has to be a really great movie to explain a new partnership on screen. If not, they’re going to crush us”, he explains. He says he couldn’t have found a “more perfect” girl than Kristen. “She understands exactly how I feel. She is an ambitious woman who wants to grow as an actress. She has an excellent radar for what is good and challenges me constantly.”
Named Robsten by the media – like Brangelina (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) – , the couple went through the emotion and the craziness of having a movie each competing for the Golden Palm at the last Cannes Festival. He was competing with Cosmopolis, and she with Walter Salles’ On The Road. “Someone made a joke about us being adversaries, which would be insane.” Pattinson admits that he got “a little jealous” when Kristen told him about being at the French event – the selection of Cosmopolis wasn’t a done deal yet.
“In the end, it was amazing to have each other’s support. Her presence at the gala screening of the movie made me really nervous. She was sitting in front of me. I kept looking at the back of her neck, trying to find out if she was liking the movie or not. (laughs). I only calmed down when, at the end, Kristen told me she loved it.”
