Kristen Stewart let it slip during her new interview with British GQ that her "boyfriend is English." Instead of covering it up with a "no comment," she finally spilled on why she keeps her relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson a secret!
While shooting her cover for British GQ, Kristen offhandedly commented that she'd like to explore more of the UK while she's there filming Snow White and the Hunstman "because my boyfriend is English."
Later when Kristen, 21, met her interviewer for the issue, she realized she had overheard her "boyfriend" comment the previous day.
"I never would have said that if I knew you were interviewing me," Kristen said (via Daily Mail).
But Kristen's interviewer explained that most of her fans already know she's been in a long-term relationship.
"So much of my life is so easily Googled," she said. "I mean, it’s like, 'Come on, guys! It’s so obvious!' "
"I don’t think you realize what a big deal it is for people," she added. "Well, it is a big deal. They would be 'Oh, my god.' There would also be still a 50/50 split. Some people would still be, 'See, told you they’re not together.' "
So, Kristen wants to keep her relationship with Rob as secret as possible.
"I don’t worry about it at all," she says. "It’s just one of those things. I’m selfish. I’m like, 'That’s mine!' And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. It’s a funny little game to play, and it’s a slippery slope. I always say to myself I’m never going to give anything away because there’s never any point or benefit for me."
But having to work hard to keep her relationship private doesn't bother Kristen that much.
"It really is not a nightmare; it’s just one of those things," she says. "I guarantee whenever I get married or have a baby, everyone is going to want to know my kid’s name and I’m not going to say it for ages. That’s just the way I want to do it. It’ll come out, but it won’t have come from me. They’re going to be really p***** off that I won’t say it, and I’m just going to say, 'No!' "
The Twilight beauty does admit that, at times, she wants to talk about it, but has learned from doing press that she shouldn't.
"I also have that desire to blurt stuff out, but I’ve learned I can’t do that. Not when you realize the whole world is listening. That’s why perhaps I look so uncomfortable in interviews at times," she explained. "I mean, we’ve talked about hiding things, and I’ve had to get much more adept at that, sadly. But I’m glad I’m not one of those actresses who is just so ready to open up for everyone."
Are you shocked by Kristen's comments? Or are you still saying, "See, told you they're not together?"
