Robert Pattinson Confirms He's Dating Kristen Stewart
"It is extremely difficult, but we are together, yes," he said. "We can't arrive at the same time because of the fans. It goes crazy. This was supposed to be a public appearance as a couple but it's impossible. We are here together and it's a public event but it's not easy."
While it's great that Rob is finally fessing up to his relationship with Kristen, we're not surprised. At all. The pair have spent so much time trying to cover it up -- for instance, not walking the BAFTA red carpet together -- when it might have been easier to admit it from the get go.
Yes, fans do go "crazy" when they see the Twilight stars, but denying their relationship only feeds the frenzy. What if they appeared on the red carpet arm in arm? Would it have really been a big deal?
Both stars were scheduled to attend the awards show, so no one would have been shocked to see them posing together. And the paparazzi are already all over every move Rob and Kristen make separately, so it really won't be much different now that the cat's out of the bag. In fact, now we can all breathe a sigh of relief -- Rob and Kristen included.
