--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?

Kristen is just one of the cliche starlets who is selfish and has no morals or decency

don’t think that Rob meant that cheating is normal. I’m pretty sure he meant that the whole thing – dating someone you work with, things not working out – for whatever reason – and the relationship ending – is normal, or not unusual. And he’s right – it happens every day all over the world. I think it’s important to read the entire article, or at least the paragraphs before and after. I think this is just another example of HL stirring the pot to generate hits.
I really like how Rob addressed the whole thing – especially the part about how what we say affects others. I also don’t think Rob was making light of the situation, as HL described. I think he’s been able to distance himself from what happened and sees it for what it was – simply a relationship between two young people that didn’t work out. Unfortunately for both Rob and Kris their entire relationship was and still is played out in full view of the public. THAT is not normal at all.
Here is an excerpt from the article, so hopefully anyone reading will see what I mean.
“Like all things Twilight, the whole K-Stew / R-Patz saga was horribly overcooked. It’s not unusual for co-stars to date – they were both living and working in a strange bubble for many years, both of them under intense and obsessive scrutiny. And then it ended in betrayal.
“Sh!t happens, you know?” he laughs. “It’s just young people… it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a sh!t?”
“The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict,” he says. “It’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
