An interview with Kristen Stewart on BettyConfidential.com caught a lot of people’s attention today, as part of it seemed… familiar.
The Q&A is presented as a recent conversation arranged during promotion for The Yellow Handkerchief, Stewart’s new film. And most of the discussion sticks to that dramatic role.
But at the end is a very curious bit of Robert Pattinson talk.
“So what’s really going on with you and Robert,” asks the interviewer. “Are you dating?”
To which Stewart is said to reply, “The whole rumor tabloid stuff is so obviously false to me and I knew it was false even before I became a part of it. It has been like some sort of ridiculous show. It’s like a soap opera, but filled with false realism. I don’t take it personally. It might seem real to fans, but it isn’t.”Hmm. Sound familiar?
Take a look at this interview (with audio) from last November, when Stewart was promoting The Twilight Saga: New Moon and said of her growing celebrity:
“I’ve gotten more comfortable with the whole rumor, tabloid stuff, it’s so obviously false to me. Look, even before I became a part of it, once I sort of became a star… it’s like a show. It’s like a ridiculous show.”
["A soap opera with your name in it?" a reporter prompts]
“Exactly. With false realism like a soap opera that seems real but you’re not quite sure. It doesn’t bother me. I don’t take it personally.”
Gossip Cop contacted BettyConfidential, and the site confirmed our suspicions.
The answer to the “What’s going on with you and Robert?” question, the site admits, was taken from the previous roundtable discussion with reporters Stewart staged in November.
It was not an answer Stewart gave during her current promotion for The Yellow Handkerchief.
Importantly, Gossip Cop will also observe that in the original setting back in November, Stewart’s response was not even to a question about Pattinson, but, rather, regarding her overall comfort level with interviews and celebrity status.
So don’t give any weight to the “answer” BettyConfidential presents as a recent answer to a Robsten question.
It is several months old and taken completely out of context.
