“Gross To Me”: Kristen Stewart Finally Opens Up On Why Her Relationship With Robert Pattinson Had To End
She spoke to New York Times Magazine about the split.
Theirs was a split that rocked Hollywood.
After five seemingly happy years together, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson finally called time on their relationship when pictures emerged of Kristen kissing her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in 2013.
At the time it was reported that trouble had been brewing for the couple for some time, but that they finally decided to call it quits after a huge row, caused by Kristen’s infidelity.
Now, in an interview with New York Times magazine, Kristen tells how the split was a long time coming, citing life in the limelight as one of the relationship’s major problems.
“People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product,” she tells the mag.
“It wasn’t real life anymore. And that was gross to me. It’s not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I’m doing in my life. It’s that I don’t want to become a part of a story for entertainment value.”
This is the first time Kristen has spoken publicly about the split since issuing a groveling public apology right after her affair.
In it she writes: “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.
“This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
The couple officially split a short time afterwards in May 2013.
