“S--- happens, you know? It’s just young people ... it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a shit? ... The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predic. t’s like that scene in Doubt [2008, in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest suspected of inappropriate behaviour], where he’s talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”
--Robert Pattinson on Kristen Stewart's cheating, and oh God, the misery is so fresh all over again.
Don't know about y'all, but I was pretty gutted when finding out that Kristen had cheated on Rob with Rupert Sanders, of all people to cheat with. I hadn't even seen any of the "Twilight" movies up to that point, because I'm often way, way behind superfads like that and kale and whatever else, but this affair was what got me to even remotely care about the books and the movies (hint: the books are way better, but you knew that).
Of course, I'd known about Rob from his stint as Cedric Diggory in the film adaption of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," because nerdism, and I immediately felt bad, so it was only natural to pay a whole lot of attention even though none of the movie magic had yet been experienced to that point.
Anyway. Long story short, this is still sad pretty sad and raw for yours truly, and to hear Robert make such light of it in this new interview with Esquire is ... well, it brings the deeply-buried, irrational pain a little closer to the surface -- and of you feel me?
