Kristen Stewart is taking a bite out of the rumors that she’s had a fling with her “Twilight” co-star, Robert Pattinson.
“It’s just totally false,” Stewart tells the March issue of Nylon Magazine. “Rob and I are good friends. We went through a lot together, so we feel very close. But if we go out in public, every little detail is scrutinized, like the way I stand next to him.
“And it’s like, I know the guy really f***ing well,” she continues. “It’s only natural that we sort of lean on each other, because we’re put in the most f***ing psychotic situations.”
The real love interest Stewart’s life is her boyfriend, actor Michael Angarano, who she met when the two co-starred in the Lifetime movie “Speak” in 2004. However, they didn’t start dating until two years later.
“He’s older than me—he’s 20 now—but when you’re 13 and he’s turning 16, it was always sort of an out-of-reach thing. Then you get a little older, and you realize, ‘Oh, What the f*** am I thinking? I can have you, like, lickity…’” she said snapping her fingers and laughing. “He’s awesome.’”
Though she has been acting for years, Stewart became a household name almost overnight when she was cast as Bella Swan, a human who falls in love with a vampire, in the Stephenie Meyer vampire series. Yet, nothing could prepare Kristen for the overwhelming diehard fans.
“Anywhere we’d go for ‘Twilight’ was a psychotic situation," she said. "The sound was deafening, and it’s thoughtless, as well. It’s so manic that you’re just pushed and pulled around… You get a slew of all these bulls*** questions like, ‘What’s it like to kiss a vampire?’ and ‘How much do you love Robert?’ Then you’ll get one that’s actually real, but you’re like, ‘No, I can’t right now — I can’t even consider…’”
Stewart’s break from the vampire world will continue a little while longer as she revealed she is currently using her guitar skills to prepare for the role of playing Joan Jett in the all-girl teenage band film, “The Runaways.”
“There’s an immense, massive, super f***ing heavy pressure,” she says of playing an early Joan Jett. “You can’t do this wrong.”
One thing Stewart wasn't even attempting: While Pattinson served as an Oscar presenter at the Feb. 22 Academy Awards, she wasn't next to him.
Access’ Billy Bush got the answer on the red carpet, when he asked Kristen’s father, John Stewart.
Stewart responded that his daughter would present at the Oscars, “When it’s a great movie, not just one that makes a lot of money.”
