Stop the presses: Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart are dating! OK, maybe that’s been pretty obvious to “Twihards” and casual observers alike for months, but at long last, Rob has actually confirmed it!
“It is extremely difficult, but we are together, yes,” the hunky actor confessed to the U.K.’s Sun at the BAFTA Awards (Britain’s Oscars) on Sunday, as thousands of teenage hearts broke simultaneously.
In fact, the pair was even planning to make their public debut as a couple at the gala, but ended up opting to arrive separately.
“We can’t arrive at the same time because of the fans. It goes crazy,” the “Remember Me” star said. “This was supposed to be a public appearance as a couple, but it’s impossible. We are here together and it’s a public event, but it’s not easy. We have to do all this stuff to avoid attention.”
Clearly, that doesn’t seem to be working.
Lindsay Looks Back
Also spilling her guts to the Sun was Lindsay Lohan. She gave the paper an extremely candid interview, opening up about her history of drug abuse and her turbulent relationship with Samantha Ronson — her first and only departure from heterosexuality, she said.
In 2007, when she was in and out of rehab, she was “[trying] to mask my problems with alcohol, cocaine and mind-altering substances,” the “Mean Girls” star, who claims to be clean now, said. “I’ve made some dreadful mistakes.
“I went to rehab three times. The first time I checked myself in because I had taken Ambien. It’s a sleeping aid, but it makes you hallucinate. I’d run a bath and fallen asleep on the floor, and the bath had overflowed. When I woke up, I was so scared [that] I called my therapist and said, ‘Can I just go somewhere for a month? I’m around bad people and I need to take care of myself.’”
As for her recent tempestuous turn as girlfriend of Samantha, Lindsay said their chemistry caught her off guard. “I never really thought about women before; it kind of just happened with Samantha. It surprised me,” LiLo said.
“We love each other,” she said, theorizing that the romance imploded because of the Ronson family’s meddling, adding, “We might reconcile the relationship — maybe.”
We wonder if Sam would beg to differ about that.
He Says, She Says
Ryan Phillippe has split with actress girlfriend Abbie Cornish. Or has she split with him? Though the “Bright Star” star was seen moving her things out of the house they shared Sunday, their publicists tell different stories about why.
“Abbie ended the relationship with Ryan and she moved out of their home,” the starlet’s rep told People magazine.
But the actor’s flack said, “Ryan ended the relationship and asked her to move out of his house.”
The photogenic pair, who met on the “Stop-Loss” set, had been together since Ryan split with actress wife Reese Witherspoon in 2006 — or, if you believe the rumors, they got together while he was still married. Despite tons of rumors lately about him stepping out on Abbie — some reports claimed she dumped him because of them — her rep wouldn’t comment on whether that played a part in the breakup.
Well, Reese is single again ... think she’d take him back? Yeah, we don’t either.
