So it’s a big day in the Twilight world today. It’s Robert Pattinson‘s birthday. The cast is on Oprah today (and we’ll be live-blogging it at 4 p.m. ET). And the Queen of Talk asks them the question they’ve been most avoiding: are they or aren’t they??
Although some reports claimed the twosome admitted to Oprah backstage that they are indeed a couple, an Oprah show source told Crushable that was not true. The talk show host did ask Rob and Kristen on air to discuss their relationship, but we’ll just have to wait and see what new and different way they decide to dodge the question this time around.
So here comes the even bigger question: why still dodge? Why not just come clean? Are they afraid of crazy Twilight fan death threats against Kristen ala Kim Kardashian and the Justin Bieber fan onslaught? I am of the school of thought that believes that Twilight fans would not rise up against the pairing — quite the opposite. Aren’t Edward and Bella supposed to get together in the end anyway? I believe there would be many fans who would support their relationship, and would appreciate their candidness and honestly. All of this hemming and hawwing is getting old.
What’s more, wouldn’t it be fun to see photos of these two beautiful young stars out together, having fun and being happy? Kristen has a perpetual scowl on her face, and I, for one, would love to see her around a guy, just being young and having a good time. They could go on vacation together, they could stroll hand in hand and they could be there for each other when it counts, like at movie premieres and award shows. So I’ll ask you both again: Kristen and Rob, don’t hide your love away.
