Werewolves, vampires, warring clans; Bella and Edward's relationship troubles are small fry compared to the turbulence faced by their real-life counterparts, and .
Being the human (and vampire) embodiments of her much-nurtured characters, it is surely only natural for to care for Rob and Kristen, and Meyer has certainly never shied away from offering a helping hand to the youngsters. In a March 2013 interview, the bestselling author opened up about her sympathy for the fame-swamped pair:
Here’s the thing: there are some actors who are looking to be world famous, to be that household name, and although they might discover that there are a lot of negative things involved in that, it’s what they want. But that doesn’t apply to Kristen and Rob. That’s what makes it kind of ironic and tragic. If they had the choice, I’ve no idea if they’d even do 'Twilight' again. I just don’t know. I think this has all come at a heavy price.
A source at Hollywood Life has commented on Meyer's involvement with the mammoth task of helping the starcrossed lovers heal:
Stephenie Meyer has reached out to both Rob and K-Stew to make sure they’re good after the breakup...She’s kind of like a big sister to them and they love her, so she’s been a perfect person to talk with.
On a cautiously hopeful note, another source at Hollywood Life reports that Rob and Kristen are very much back in each other's lives, though nobody (including the pair themselves) are entirely sure in what capacity:
He stopped by on the weekend and they both spent some time together, catching up. Kristen was really happy to see him, but I think in the end they were both sad because they still have feelings for each other. It’s not as simple as just getting back together. Seeing each other brought up a lot stuff for both of them. For now, work — not rebuilding a relationship — comes first. It’s sad.
Celebrity couples do have a tendency for the stormy on-off relationship. Like Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton - or more latterly, P!nk and Carey Hart - Robsten just can't seem to get each other out of their systems. If the couple are still in contact after Kristen's affair with , there may be hope for them yet.
