Twilight was released in 2008, and it has been a few years since the filming of that project, but Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner haven’t lost touch. The two former co-stars have become fast friends, thanks to Twilight, and they still seem to enjoy each other’s company, as proven by their Tuesday night visit to The Nice Guy in West Hollywood.
Twilight Stars Stewart And Lautner Party At One Of West Hollywood’s Biggest Celebrity Hotspots
While ex-boyfriend and former Twilight actor Robert Pattinson was no doubt spending time with fiancé FKA Twigs, Kristen was letting her hair down with long time friend Taylor. The two tried to remain inconspicuous, as they ducked into The Nice Guy with 25-year-old Stewart hiding her face beneath a white baseball cap. The actress also used her long, brown hair to mask her face. Lautner was dressed in black pants with a matching shirt, as he walked into the bar alongside Stewart.
For those ready to assume that Kristen and Taylor are now romantically linked, it does not seem to be the case. The duo are still just good friends. Later that evening, Stewart remained at The Nice Guy, while Lautner left with an unidentified blonde companion, proving that Lautner bears no commitment to his former Twilight co-star.
Stewart, who has announced herself as being sexually fluid and has stated her dislike for labels, is currently dating Alicia Cargile. Although rumors have been circulating that the pair have separated, they were together over the Christmas holiday, implying that they are still very much together.
“Until I decide that I’m starting a foundation or that I have some perspective or opinion that other people should be receiving…I don’t,” Kristen Stewart said, when asked if she ever planned to officially come out. “I’m just a kid making movies.”
Kristen Stewart Has Some Advice For Star Wars Actress Daisy Ridley
Stewart was only 18 when Twilight was released in theaters and the actress still recalls the tremendous impact that sudden fame had on her life. As it turned out, her fame garnered by that first film was nothing compared to the attention she was receiving by the time the entire series had been released. Stewart recalls the insanity of it with everyone wanting to know every detail of her life, but she says there were highs to the sudden fame as well.
“A whole lot of other baggage-really heavy and really cool baggage-came along with it.”
Daisy Ridley is just beginning to see that same kind of success and attention, but, while Kristen admires the level of grace with which Ridley is handling the attention, she wonders if Daisy will continue to weather fame as well in the future. She has some words of wisdom, should the Star Wars actress ever feel the stress and pressure of being the star of a popular franchise.
“Focus on the fact that you’re stoked ’cause you’re doing the work that you want to do,” the Twilight actress advises Ridley. “It’s literally mainly just about focusing on what makes you happy. And if losing your anonymity or whatever doesn’t make you happy, then focus on something else.”
Stewart has been acting for more than half her life, but she only recently started to feel confident in her career. Starring in dramas like Still Alice and Clouds of Sils Maria helped her to gain focus on her acting skills, as well as aiding her in putting fame into its proper perspective. As for her acting, she says practice makes perfect.
“I get better every time I do a job,” Kristen says. “It’s getting more fun.”
Kristen Stewart most recently starred in the action/comedy American Ultra, alongside Connie Britton and Jessie Eisenberg.
