In a behind-the-scenes video of Kristen Stewart (photos) shooting a spread for Flaunt, she casually chatters while adorably fussing with her well-moussed coif and exchanging her on-set pumps for all-black Converse. The interviewer asks Stewart about inner beauty, and after denying them some cheeseball sound bite, she answered “I’ve never really gone out with someone I’ve found attractive, initially.” This is where countless media outlets gasped, foamed at the mouth, removed all context and rabidly announced “Kristen Stewart Thinks Robert Pattinson Is Ugly!”
We’re here to defend KStew and her occasional inarticulateness, and call out the insanity that anyone with the ability of sight (or feeling, hey, we have to believe a run through his glorious mop could tingle the loins) would ever think RPattz is anything but drop-dead. Kristen met Rob at their audition for Twilight, when he was just some tousle-haired, bushy-eyebrowed British actor who played Cedric in Harry Potter. And while we’ve always thought the international hysteria-inducer was handsome, after we had the joy (that’s an understatement) of interviewing Robert Pattinson, we fell head-over-heels for his self-deprecating humor and befuddled attitude regarding his fame. We’re confident Kristen simply meant she fell for his bumbling goofiness, not his gorgeous good looks, like anyone who passes a magazine stand. Though given the eye-f*cking that went down on Oprah, we’re certain the secret lovers are plenty attracted to one another.
