Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have both proven that they can play the solo game since the crushing blow that was the actress' cheating scandal involving Rupert Sanders--and that they can do so quite well. Pattinson took the first plunge by stepping out recently for his Cosmopolis premiere and a round of talk-show interviews, which actually trended a bit awkward. But his handsome, polished appearance more than made up for it. And he just made hearts melt at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, Sept. 6 when he and his Twilight cast mates introduced a new clip for Breaking Dawn-Part 2. It may have been hard, though, for him to see the sexy vampire Stewart on screen.
As for Stewart, the same night as the MTV VMAs, she was miles away making her first big P.A. at the Toronto International Film Festival for the debut of her On The Road flick. And she was no shrinking, shame-faced violet in her sizzling, sheer Zuhair Murad and her fierce hair and makeup. Plus, she even reverted back to her standard sneaker-wearing ways--after managing the stilettos momentarily.
However, despite her powerfully stylish exit--and even a surprising support group of fans who gathered to cheer her on at TIFF--body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass has revealed that she thinks Stewart was nothing but depressed at the premiere and shouldn't have even attended!
"She looks like a beaten dog; she is so full of shame and self-loathing," Dr. Glass told Hollywood Life. "She looks terribly sad and really should not be out in public until she does some emotional healing. Her arm is limp at her side and she is hunched over like a turtle."
No one could argue that both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson aren't dealing with some pretty intense feelings of sadness, loss, confusion and, for Stewart, perhaps regret. After all, they've been sharing a romantic relationship together both on-screen and off for several years. But the good doctor's analysis of her body language cues appears like it could be a bit extreme. And isn't it a positive thing, not a negative one, that Stewart is out and about supporting her film work, rather than wallowing at home?!
What's more, Stewart's slightly inward-leaning, "hunched" posture is nothing new; it's part of her tomboy-like stance and her personality that sometimes shies away from the paparazzi, regardless of the status of her love life. She and Pattinson actually both have the reputation for being guarded in the face of public attention.
For diehard Twi-hards, it may still be hard to see Pattinson and Stewart separated. In light of their dual commitment to the Breaking Dawn premiere in November, it will be interesting to see how the duo's relationship progresses--or grows further apart.
