I do not enjoy watching Kristen go through airports. Its not a pleasant experience for her. This is made worse by the people that judge her for not handling it better.
In order to have the right to judge her on this, first you must have taken a long cross country flight and when you get off the plane, you had 20 guys with cameras waiting for you who then follow you on the very long journey to your vehicle, and all along the way they pepper you with questions in hopes of getting a reaction out of you that will make their pictures worth something since you didn't do what they hoped you would (like hold your BFs hand for the world to see) If you have handled that situation gracefully, then speak up. Otherwise STFU.
When you are treated that way, all the negative energy builds up and you have to react. I would probably get aggressive with the photographers and hopefully not end up in jail for assault. Kristen is tiny, the only recourse she has to get rid of some of that negative energy to raise her middle finger. No one should fault her
Because of the news that occurred the previous day, with the grainy kiss, gossip outlets that pay the photographers are hoping they get some additional PDA, such as hand holding in the airport. I never see anyone holding hands or being affectionate in the airport. Walking through the airport, regardless of who you with, is not fun. All I can think about is getting to the vehicle and getting the hell out of there so I can get home.
It may even be worse that what was happening at the airport. Rob and Kristen might not have had the option of going home because of those same guys may know where they live or they are going to follow you home to find out. Anyone would be angry about this.
Some of the reasons I am drawn to Kristen is I see myself is some of her personality traits. She is the opposite of an attention whore. As matter of fact, excessive attention, for people like me, drains you physically and emotionally.
Rob is not having an easy time with this, either. He is primarily concerned with Kristen but there is nothing he can do to make it better until they get the hell out of there. The guy probably feels helpless because he can't do anything for her.
It probably would have taken me a couple of days to recover from an experience like that because of the negative energy I would have absorbed.
The whole idea that Kristen deserves this because she is famous and gets paid well is just wrong. What Kristen did was spend several months using her god given ability to create a product that people want. They work hard during production. Sixteen hour days are common.
Rob and Kristen did not seek this degree of fame, but its here and they really do go out of their way to show appreciation to their fans by signing autographs and allowing people to get their picture taken with them. They probably do this more than anyone. I have not heard of them refusing fan pictures or autographs, even when they are approached having dinner.
Please pardon me while I go off on a tangent regarding autographs and trying to get close to celebrities. I am not the type to seek autographs and pictures. Its a personality trait that I think I have in common with Kristen. If she were not famous, i cant see her seeking autographs. She would admire at a distance (as i do). That's not being critical of autograph seekers, it's just that i don't see any value in an autograph or quick picture. So I would just stay out of the way. If i were in their shoes, I would not be comfortable with the attention, but i would certainly make an effort to let folks know i appreciate the support (and they do). As a fan i would only travel or go out of my way to see someone I admire if it was to see them perform OR if I knew I could have an actual conversation. If I did spend some time with the admired individual and shared a few laughs, then a picture would be a token of that experience. Otherwise, an autograph or picture isn't worth the trouble. I collected a few autographs when I was younger and the memory I have is of this person doing something they felt obligated to do, despite the smile on their face. end tangent
Robert and Kristen have gone through LAX before and it looked uncomfortable, but this time it was really bad. The pap from Montreal and that bitch Lainey made this 10 times worse by talking and tweeting about while they were in the air.
I won't blame Rob and Kristen's management because I don't know how the timing of all this went down. However, considering the news from the previous day, this would have been a good time to get them on a private plane.
Kristen wasn't raising her middle finger at me or you. But I deserve it if I am providing a market for paparazzi pictures. As I have said, from the Orpah show through the Eclipse premiere, Rob and Kristen did enough that reasonable people should have figured out (if they hadn't already) that these two are more than friends. They joy in their smiles as they looked at each other on the Eclipse Black Carpet was more than enough confirmation. They were working that night, but those smiles kept on and they were truly loving each other. They had to know we could tell what was going on. To me, that is what loving Robsten is all about. That was the modern day Romeo and Juliet on display. And those pictures were no violation of their privacy.
