The promotion for the last installment of the Twilight franchise has been meticulously planned out. On again, off again, sweethearts Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been promoting on opposite ends of the globe, most likely, because no one wants to get asked about the elephant in the room that is the affair Stewart had with director Rupert Sanders over the summer.
All parties have been mum about the affair while promoting, except for Twilight cast mate Taylor Lautner. When Cosmopolitan asked about his friend and co star Kristen Stewart’s infidelity, he weighed in on the matter. Opening up to the magazine, Lautner, 20, said, “To be honest, I’ve never been involved in any of those situations, so I don’t know [if trust can be regained]. It would be just a guess and a shot in the dark, and I don’t want to give that if I haven’t even been there myself.”
Sounds like quite the diplomatic answer on a situation that has become very public, since Stewart and Sanders released their own statements of apology to their respective significant others. Lautner later countered,”Kristen is fantastic at everything she does. I’m always proud of her.”
Although Taylor Lautner didn’t seem too sure anyone could bounce back from infidelity, Robert Pattinson decided to give Kristen Stewart another chance at love. Later on, Lautner said that he “absolutely” believes that it’s “possible” to reconnect with an ex, elaborating, “It depends on how long you were with that person. If it was a long, serious relationship, I think it’s quite easy to rekindle. I guess it depends on what damage has been done. There’s no ex out there who I’m not friends with today, and I’m extremely thankful for that.”
In his own love life, Taylor Lautner has been a bachelor since splitting from his girlfriend Lily Collins in September 2011. His previous loves include Taylor Swift, Sara Hicks, and Selena Gomez. On his own love life, he told Cosmopolitan, “If two people can be honest with each other about everything, that’s probably the biggest key to success. I like to think of myself as very loyal, and I love everyone I surround myself with, whether they’re friends or girlfriends or whatever. I love people.”
Do you think Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will address the cheating scandal once they arrive in Los Angeles to promote Twilight?
