The exes met on the set of Twilight in 2008 and began a low-profile relationship, which heightened in the media as the film’s subsequent movies continued to get bigger. Things came to a halt, though, in the summer of 2012, when it was revealed that the actress had cheated on her costar with Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders.
They remained publicly amicable through the premiere of the final Twilight film in the fall, but eventually cooled things off with their relationship. Still, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Rob was recently asked whether or not he remains in contact with his ex. “Oh, yeah,” he admitted to the mag.
Even before the Twilight franchise came to an end, the actor was constantly setting out to reinvent himself from his defining character, Edward Cullen. But, still, he told THR that his role in the vampire flicks was unexpectedly challenging. “It was quite a constricting character, in a way,” he explained. “You want to make [him] as dramatic as possible, but you have someone who never loses his temper, and so it’s like, ‘How the f–k do you do this?!’ I think that was one of the hardest jobs I’ve ever done.”
So, who else does R.Patz hang out with from the famous blockbuster movies? Kellan Lutz, for one — the guys occasionally play poker together!
