Indubitably, many of us have been hardcore Twilight fans in our teenage years. And a lot of the affinity had to do with the adorable lead couple, Kristen Stweart and Robert Pattinson. The duo was in a relationship throughout the course of the franchise, but suffered a distressing break-up amidst a cheating scandal.
However, six years after the couple called it quits, Pattinson and Stewart have both confirmed that they are still on good terms with each other. According to exclusive details from Hollywood Life, both still share a very heartwarming friendship, despite the way their relationship ended.
“They text occasionally, sometimes about personal stuff and sometimes about work stuff. They are very much friendly but also very private too. Rob does not talk much about Kristen out of respect for what they once shared and where they are at now in their relationship.”
In fact, it is not just Pattinson who feels platonically for the other. The feelings of friendship are definitely mutual!
“Kristen is grateful to be able to call Rob a friend after all these years. They have been through a lot together and she is appreciative that he forgave her for some of the mistakes she made in their relationship. Kristen has matured and grown a lot since falling in love with Rob and never intended on hurting him or breaking his heart.”
And the best thing is, despite ending their relationship on a rocky road, Stewart is all grateful for still having Pattinson in her life as a friend.
“Kristen is appreciative that they have come to a place where they still talk, share things and have forgiven each other for their past.”
If you’re looking for a sign to see if exes can still be friends and civil with each other, this is it! Their bond is truly an inspiration for all those who want to move on and not hold grudges over the past. And this is just another reason for Twilight fans to swoon over their favourite duo a little more.
