It may be hard to imagine Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as anything on screen but Bella and Edward after the massive impact the Twilight series of films has had on pop culture.
At the end of the entire Twilight set, the pair will have completed five whole films in the saga: Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and parts one and two of the current and last book adaptation, Breaking Dawn. Both Stewart, 21, and Pattinson, 25, shot to international fame after starring in the films (although Pattinson was well-known to fangirls the world over after his role as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter films) and are well linked with their characters in the Twilight universe.
That’s not to say the pair haven’t worked outside Twilight obligations- both have been busy with other projects throughout the books’ journey to the silver screen. And somewhat uncharacteristically of stars their age, the real-life couple have kept very quiet about their long-term off-screen romance. But Stewart and Pattinson may ‘come out’ in a bigger way after the last part of Breaking Dawn wraps.
According to a Hollywood source, the couple may star in a film centering around a real life celebrity couple. No actual plot was revealed, however:
“The story revolves around two actors who meet on a movie and fall in love,” says a Hollywood insider.
“The producers want to get an actual couple to plays the leads and Kristen and Robert are top of their list. They are looking for new challenges after Twilight so this may be perfect for them.”
Would it be strange to see Stewart and Pattinson together not as Bella and Edward?
