My Close Encounter with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart at CoachellaApril 23, 2012.
Oh, twihards. I should know by now that your obsession with everything Robsten-related knows no bounds, but yet again, your tenacity took me by surprise. Seriously, thanks to you, my brief celeb sighting (which didn’t even crack my Top 10 moments of Coachella 2012) has made me go viral. Um, thanks?
So, here’s the (not very exciting) dish: on Saturday night around 11, my friends and I were sitting on a blanket waiting for Radiohead to go on. We were to the left of the stage, just in front of the VIP entrance. I was fiddling with my phone when I heard someone say “Hold up, guys. We should wait for them.” And even before I looked up, I knew it was Kristen Stewart. Turns out she has a really distinctive voice. (Either that, or I’ve watched way, way too many Kristen Stewart movies. I like my first theory better.)
She was holding Robert Pattinson’s hand and they were with a couple of other people. He was wearing a grey tshirt and looking like his usual disheveled, adorable self, while she looked gorg in a black top and red lipstick. They were wondering about someone named Nikki’s whereabouts.
My friend was going to take their photo, but I dissuaded her. It’s weird, but I feel oddly protective of Robert Pattinson. I’ve met him and think he’s a genuinely nice guy; the last thing I wanted to do was make him feel uncomfortable or draw attention to them. These kids seem like a normal young couple who rarely get to do normal things, and I didn’t want to ruin their moment. They were wandering around the general population unnoticed, and I was reluctant to invade their privacy (more so than I already have). Still, I shot off a quick generic tweet just to tell my friends that I saw them.
Of course, I soon found out that tweeting about a Robsten sighting without including some photographic proof is the quickest way to get the twihards twihating. I got a bunch of messages about how I was clearly mistaken and had obviously confused them with another couple. Seriously? I can’t claim to be an expert in much, but four years of writing and/or copy-editing stories about these guys almost every single week has made me pretty confident that I know my Twilight inside and out. (And I can’t tell you how sad that sentence just made me.)
There were a couple of really sweet tweets, however, mostly praising an interview I did with him way back in 2008 (twihards have long memories). And the messages about how I was lying were outnumbered by the messages demanding every. single. detail. What were they wearing? Did they look loving? Has his hair grown out or will he need a wig for the Breaking Dawn reshoots? Have I ever seen another couple so epically soul-matey? I’d love to tell you all that I watched him throw her down on the grass and make love to her before a unicorn appeared to whisk them into the clouds, but they were just a normal looking couple surrounded by their normal looking friends, eager to see Radiohead like the rest of us.
Radiohead was awesome, btw. So were M83, St Vincent, Girl Talk, The Hives, SBTRKT, The Rapture, Gary Clark Jr, tUnE-yArDs, Santigold and Childish Gambino. But you don’t care about that, do you? You just want to hear about how she rested her hand on his chest (which she did) and how he took her hand and led her through the crowd to the VIP section (which he did). That’s why I just did a phone interview with E!News, and why I’ve been quoted in The Daily Mail, Hollywood Life, Lainey and more. Of course, if you want the full scoop, you’ve come to the right place. And be sure to read more details about Robsten’s Coachella adventure here.
So can I stop being viral now? I’ve got two more days left of my vacation and the pool awaits! Check back Wednesday for new (non-Robsteny) posts.
On Saturday, Kristen Stewart was photographed wandering around Coachella Music Festival without boyfriend Robert Pattinson, but a concertgoer informed Celebuzz that the actress wasn’t really far from her beau!
An onlooker told us, ”They were kissing and holding hands during Radiohead, swaying and singing along to parts [of the songs.]”
Earlier in the day, Rob, 25, and Kristen, 22, were also spotted cooling off in the beer garden together. Sporting burgundy shorts, a grey tank and a baseball cap, K-Sew looked happy and relaxed as she hung out with Rob and their friends, ”laughing and looking like they were having a fun time.”
Seeing how these two both have big movies on the horizon, we’re glad to see them taking advantage of their free time together!
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are as private a couple as you'll find in Hollywood, but the Twilight co-stars were OK with taking their romance public this weekend.
Scratch that: it was more like Robsten took their romance TO the public at Coachella this Sunday. Because when Dose.ca spotted them together that night, just before Radiohead began their headlining set, Stewart and Pattinson were far from the relative comforts of the VIP tent, strolling hand in hand among the non-sparkling plebes in the pit.
"He was basically leading her through the crowd," says Dose.ca managing editor Jen McDonnell, who spotted Pattinson and Stewart at the festival when she heard Stewart chatting behind her. "She was saying 'We have to find Nikki,'" says McDonnell. (Note: Just Jared reports Twilight co-star Nikki Reed was also at the fest -- though among the estimated 85,000 people in attendance, there were probably one or two extra Nikkis in the mob.)
But it wasn't all talk for Stewart and Pattinson. There was also some (very G-rated) action. As McDonnell Tweeted Sunday night: "They were holding hands and when they stopped to regroup with their pals, she put her other hand on his chest."
It was just a brief moment of affection -- "they weren't super PDA, they weren't fighting, they just seemed like a really nice couple enjoying themselves," McDonnell says of the actors. But since the weekend, several outlets have run stories about the Twilight co-stars' Coachella date. As one witness told Celebuzz, for instance, the couple was seen cuddling once Radiohead's set began. "They were kissing and holding hands during Radiohead, swaying and singing long to parts [of the songs]." But McDonnell reports the tightly packed onlookers left the couple alone, suggesting there's a very small overlap between Radiohead and Twilight Saga fans, despite the British band's presence on the soundtracks.
Stewart and Pattinson were photographed together at various times during Coachella, and Hollywood Life notes that Stewart kept her complexion its most vampiric by wearing a Baltimore Orioles baseball cap borrowed from her boyfriend, Pattinson.
McDonnell, please note, would have written about all these sparkly details herself, but is currently enjoying a California holiday. In 2009, she interviewed Pattinson for Dose.ca, so, as she Tweeted Sunday: "I know my homeless looking Brits."
That said, despite their wardrobe of cut-off jeans and grubby t-shirts, McDonnell clarifies that Stewart and Pattinson were as movie-star pretty as any Twihard could imagine them.
"He looked all kinds of nice," she says of Pattinson, "he just looked kind of disheveled as he always does." And Stewart, she says, was gorgeous.
The couple, who both have movies at this year's Cannes festival, are expected to travel to Vancouver in the near future. As Breaking Dawn, Part 2 director Bill Condon revealed on the movie's Facebook page earlier this month, both stars are expected to return to B.C. to film re-shoots for the Twilight Saga's final chapter. Breaking Dawn, Part 2 is expected in theatres November 16.
