Gossip about Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart -- Hollywood's hottest onscreen and off-screen couple -- seems to be never-ending. And as the premiere of New Moon creeps closer (18 days!), Robsten rumors remain in full force. But tabloid headlines can leave fans a little confused: They're Engaged! They're Living Together! It's Over! They're Married!
So what's the truth?
In the new issue of Vanity Fair, which hits newsstands Wednesday, Rob sets the record straight. The sexy vampire says he and his leading lady are just "good friends." Despite public makeout sessions and dinner dates, he's still denying their relationship: News that's sure to please his many adoring female fans.
In addition to details about Rob's love life, the issue includes some smokin' hot photos of the brooding Brit. You definitely don't have to be a Twilight fan to appreciate these sexy shots. But despite his current heartthrob status, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke says Rob's looks were somewhat of a controversy during the initial casting process. “They called me up and they literally said, ‘Catherine, do you think you can make this guy look good?’" she explains. "So I said, ‘Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to get his hair back to a different color, do a different style. He would work with a trainer from now on. My cinematographer is great with lighting. He will study the cheekbones, and I promise you, we’ll make the guy look good.’"
Catherine certainly did her job. We think Rob's looking pretty good these days -- and his fans agree. But he shouldn't let his head get too big. He definitely has some competition from a certain werewolf coming his way.
