Thanks to this thread popping back up, I've spent a ridiculous amount of time on that Robert Pattinson Talks Tumblr that's linked on the first page. Man, it's still funny as hell. And now kind of sad, because it's a bummer when someone that genuinely goofy is sad. The few gifs with him and Reese have me hoping he really is staying at her ranch. If she weren't married and super pregnant, I would totally root for her to be his inappropriate post-cheating hook-up.

I saw the Will Ferrell thing the other night, and laughed because the fans really are taking this break-up SO hard and Ferrell just nailed it (although he might have at least made sure he had Rob's last name right). Right after the pictures came out, there were people on Twitter lamenting that they couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, were literally sick with grief over this. The amount of investment some of these fans have in the relationship of two strangers is ridiculous.

Still, I think about Rob seeing that bit and how awful it must be to not only be in pain from your girlfriend's very public betrayal, but to also know that your humiliation has been reduced to a national punchline. No wonder he's been in hiding. He's got to be dreading having to come out in two weeks for the Cosmopolis premiere.

Now the Kristen skit? Yeah, that one I don't feel in the least bit conflicted about!

When Will Ferrell sobbed "I don't know if there was anything I could have done" I completely lost it. He nailed that perfectly.

I honestly did not know that Pattinson and Stewart were in a relationship. I hadn't paid much attention to Twilight stuff, I guess, because every time they turned up in a tabloid, I thought their "relationship" was being fabricated either by tabloids to sell papers, or by the Twilight franchise to sell Twilight.

The apology skit is brilliant: "Charlize Thermos".

The cynical part of me notes that the 'fans' who are taking it so hard have plenty of ad sponsorship on their pages, and hence 'mourning' the failed relationship is probably something of a lucrative cottage industry for them. Crazy like a fox, I think.

I have faith in RP as a Brit to be able to take some ribbing from Will Farrell with aplomb. I saw that as more supportive than cruel - he only pointed up how nuts their fans are on the national stage - it may be still too early for him to find anything about the situation funny, but my favorite part of any breakup is when you can start to laugh about it. I kind of like those friends who can remind you to take yourself a little less seriously. She cheated, it's awful right now, but it's not famine and pestilence.

KStew apologizes privately on youtube.

for some reason the director in the skit calling her "KStew" cracked me up.

Rob is set to appear next Wednesday, August 15 on Good Morning America. Given that they're already promoting it, I'm thinking GMA wants everyone to think Rob's there to talk about his situation with Kristen, when actually he's on to promote Cosmopolis. But no matter how much he would insist they not bring it up, you know they're going to ask him about it.

This. None of this is fun now, but he'll be fine. One day he'll probably even be grateful to the asshole paps who at least kept him from being in the dark even longer.

The wife has popped out. I love this write-up of her appearance.
Now this, folks, is an archetypal revenge outfit: Note the sharp navy fabric, the gold-studded collar, the razor-sharp pleating, the flared hemlines, and the gleaming zipper that's almost completely fastened. This is a woman who is not to be messed with. She will cut you with that peplum if she has to.

My second hand embarassment complex renders me incapable of watching that even if someone paid me. Seriously, if they ask him it will be so cringy worthy.

I really admire him for doing press for Cosmopolis, because a smaller film like this would not get a lot of push otherwise. He has to know he is going to face a lot of awkward questions.

ANNNNNND...The Daily Show with Jon Stewart just undercut GMA's big "exclusive" by booking Rob for Monday, August 13th. I have no idea which way this is going to go, but I love that Jon's getting the first interview.

Those pictures are the real-life version of Cordelia Chase coming back to school after Xander cheated on her (only probably without the scar from the rebar). Could not be fiercer.

Kristen has dropped out of her new movie. It was supposed to start filming in a few weeks, so this is pretty sudden. Speculation about mental breakdowns, etc., but I actually think she probably just dropped it because it sounds awful and her character was a stripper. Which might not be the smartest image to be putting out there right now.

I was really disappointed that she dropped out, because Alex Pettyfer is in it and I think they would be perfect for each other. They would be an uber-douche supercouple.

I know, right? His casting was announced literally the DAY the cheating story broke, and it was completely hilarious to me. Whether they hooked up or hated each other, I think it would've been highly entertaining. And with this mess, I weep for the tabloid stories we would've gotten. Damn it.

I don't know...Kristen was a producer on that thing (don't know if she still is) and seemed to be very, very excited about doing it, yammering on about wanting to get in "porn-star shape" for it and all. I agree that it sounds pretty horrible, and it would have been one more in a long series of the same type of damaged, humorless young women characters that KS seems drawn to for whatever reason. I'd like to think she came to her senses and realized it would be a mistake, but I'm not sure she has the maturity or brains to see that at this point. If she did, maybe she would have tried something different in the first place, something that would quell the complaints that she just plays the same role in every movie she does. (I'm not saying she'd be good at it..just saying she should try.)

I've got to give her credit for dropping out of it, though, for whatever reason, whether it's to concentrate on getting Rob back (as some say) or to get her head in order. But for her own sake, I hope she does the latter before she even begins to attempt the former.

I apologize for double-posting, but someone posted something on Twitter about this whole cheating scandal and I wanted to share or maybe get some other thoughts. It seems two people in the Rob-Kristen fandom did an investigation of the claims of the pap who caught KStew and Sanders in the act. Other than the obvious fact that some people have a lot of time and loads of investment in order to do this, I still found it pretty interesting. I'm going to copy and paste because I'm not sure a Twitlonger link will work if you're not on Twitter. This is all from a user named @real_pr_pro:

LESS THAN MEETS THE PUBLIC EYE: Part 1


Take a look at the link picture below and tell me if that looks like "an empty lot next to an abandoned building in a rundown part of town." If you think it does then perhaps you should go to work as a photographer - because that's how the US photographer described that location, which is where he took the first set of pictures of Kristen on July 17.


http://twitpic.com/ai4wxh/full


The buildimg with the red tiled roof is immediately adjacent to the LA offices of MJZ Productions, an intertnational commercial and video production company that lists Rupert Sanders among the directors on its roster, and where as a roster talent he would have office and editing bay privledges. It is at 2201 Carmelita Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90064

http://www.mjz.com/#loaded

The picture shows the back view of both MJZ and the adjavent building. The "empty lot" is the gated parking behind the adjacent buidling and is located at 2272 S. Centinela Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90064. As you can see from the photo, that is where Kristen's car was parked.

That area is West Hollywood - hardly a rundown section. And I can guarantee you that the photographer knew EXACTLY where he was - especially since the set up of the location( an open lot surrouded by walls and nothing to conceal him from his subjects) strongly points to him having already been there before Kristen was. As does the fact that despite the having claimed to have been following Kristen from the moment she left the gym, we've never seen any pictures of earlier in the day. Why would he have not taken them the moment he saw her - after all he wouldn't have known he had a big payday coming, would he? But that's not the biggest question about this.


The real issue here is:

Why misrepresent the location that way?

Was the seedier description used because it made the encounter seem more salacious and the photos less like a set-up? Saying that she “waited for him in an empty lot in a rundown part of town" certainly paint a more lurid picture than saying "she picked him up at his office," doesn’t it?.

Which raises the question - what else has been grossly exaggerated from the account of that day?

Stay tuned for Part 2.

Authors disclaimer: This is not an attempt to defend Kristen's actions - that's not my intention nor responsibility. After all, she's already owned up to her transgression. This is an effort to point out that how this event may have been both less and more than it was.
That is, less in terms of how those pictures were obtained - a happy accident of timing versus a planned surveillance
And more in terms of the encounter itself.

If anyone's interested, I'll post Part 2. I just don't want to wear out my welcome. I know some people are understandably sick of this, but I'm sharing it anyway because maybe some aren't. Maybe.

Post Part 2! (No I didn't care about any of these people before this happened.)

Picking him up from work might be less lurid, but it makes them both look so much dumber.

Totally agree -- it does make them look dumber. OK! Here's Part Two:

LESS THAN MEETS THE PUBLIC EYE Part 2

So now that we've seen how the narrator of the US story tried to enhance the salcious factor with the first part of the story, let's move on to the next location and see what else about that day was LESS than met the public eye.


Remember how the second stop was described in the article as being a “park like area” with people passing by and strolling along? How Kristen had driven around for hours looking for this ideal make out spot? Uh huh. Take a look:

http://twitpic.com/ai6u1y


This "park-like area" is in fact a residential street at the intersection of Pacific View Trail and Pacific View Drive. The infamous "lookout" point is a wooden guardrail between two homes - and in fact if you are standing at that railing (as a dear friend of mine actually did last week in the interset of forensic science) the people in the houses on either side can clearly see you.

Cropping sure does change a picture, doesn't it? Combined with wildly exaggerated descriptions it can be lethal to the truth.

There are so many disrepancies with this leg of the story it's hard to know where to start. So let's do it in order and begin with the claim that they were driving around specifically looking for someplace to be alone.

If you know LA at all you know that to take freeways all around -- 10 to 405 to Ventura Freeway to Hollywood freeway -- to get from where they were in West Hollywood to this point. Not sure how that translates to "looking for a place to make-out" unless you find asphalt and traffic jams an aphrodisiac.

And this was LA traffic in the afternoon - yet we're supposed to believe that the photographer was able to stay on her car without either losing her or being detected? Um, okaaay.

After all that driving you'd think they would have found a better spot for a tryst than a dead end residential street that's LESS THAN A THREE MINUTE DRIVE FROM SANDER'S HOUSE. Wasn't he worried that the beautiful wife or one of the heavenly children would see him?

Take another look at that street - do you want to tell me how photographers (because remember by this time there were 4 of them) who were TRAILING a car could have managed to get shots from the angle shown in those pictures without the subjects seeing them? And while we're noting the inconsistencies of the story - we were told that there were two hot make-out sessions in the car at this spot- one when they first got there and one when they got back in the car, but the only pictures were at the guard rail? Really? That's the shot you take?

And where are all those passersby? Maybe he meant the people in the house a few feet away from where Kristen and RuPig were supposedly going at it like bunnies came out to empty the trash or something?

So what are we left with at this point?

Version A:Waiting in an abandoned lot in seedy part of town, driving around all over the place to look for a trysting spot, and then making out in a park amidst strolling passersby.

Version B: Picking him up at his office and driving him home, with some kissing and weirdly abstract embracing along the way.

Again, Im not saying that the encounter wasn't inherently wrong in terms of what happened along the way. Kristen herself has admitted to an indiscretion. I'm just saying that so much about this story has been misrepresented - from the way the pictures were obtained to the details of the encounter -- that it raises a lot of questions about what really happened and why.

I for one think that the events of that day were much LESS than the story and pictures that met the public eye in terms of the nature of the encounter. And much MORE in terms of how this became public knowledge.
And in the words of Forrest Gump, that's all I have to say about that.

The original report did finish by saying she dropped him off a few blocks from his house. So basically, she picked up her boytoy from work, fooled around awkwardly with him in the car on a side street, then took him (close to) home.

I wonder if this was part of their regular routine.

Yeah, I don't think it makes it look less lurid actually. I think this makes it look habitual and couple-y. Like this wasn't some last minute hook up, it was a routine the two of them had. Definitely makes it more obvious this had been going on for awhile.

I find it funny this fan probably started investigating to clear Kristen's good name, but inadvertently just filled in all the parts of the original story that had caused doubts. Hee. Now it all makes sense and seems more believable!

I'm guessing what they were trying to prove is that Rupert may have set her up, given that the photographer knew to be there before Kristen drove up, and that the story US Magazine claimed he subsequently gave wasn't backed by the logistics. At least that's one of the theories I've seen out there since this whole thing began.

But I agree this "investigation" makes it look as though this wasn't the "momentary indiscretion" that Kristen claimed it was. It looks like something they'd done before, maybe even on a regular basis, which also coincides with how familiar they looked with one another in those photos. I think the thing between them -- whatever it was -- started in Australia on that promo trip for SWATH in June, and continued when they got back to LA.

I still don't know what Kristen was thinking, though. She knows she gets followed, and given how she treats the press, especially with her open hostility toward the paparazzi, she had to know they'd be out to get her not only for the money, but for the sheer satisfaction of tripping her up. It was just inexcusably, irretrievably DUMB and just one of the many reasons she deserved to get caught.

Weird theory unless his intention was to set off a humiliating bomb with photo proof of infidelity to end his marriage while 'getting' the Twilight couple. If he'd already split with his wife, I might buy it, but getting caught screwed him over in divorce court far more than it necessarily screwed KStew over. I'm betting they were exposed by someone who saw them start to hook up and saw dollar signs. I wonder if that informer was, in fact, reimbursed.

Yeah, I agree. And I bet someone working on the promotion saw it and passed the word, accidentally or not, to whoever ultimately sent the photogs after them.

Yeah, other paps have said that Us Weekly was tipped off about the affair and that's why they had paps assigned to both Stewart and Sanders. It all fits together when you know that and see that they caught them at his work place. I'm not sure why tabloids can never actually just write the story as it happened. It's not like this likely more true version is less scandalous. If anything, it's worse. But I think they assume their readership can't handle the ins and outs of how this is actually a business with all kinds of dealmaking and money decisions behind the stories.
