Where have I been? Living life as always. I heard something happened last weekend but for the life of me I can't figure out what everyone's talking about.
Just kidding. I saw it. I am surprised yet pleased that it happened.
So much about it has been hashed out since then. I usually don't see and experience all these events in real-time like many of you. There has been so much analysis since then so I don't have that much to add.
In case I have not mentioned this a thousand times before, Robert has the best girlfriend one could hope for. She is amazing. Sunday was his night. She went out her way just to be there to support him. It had nothing to do with promoting anything. Of course she did what she could to stay out of the spotlight. That part doesn't surprise me at all, as Kristen is the exact opposite of an attention whore.
@twopeas1pod has been gradually developing her blog. As for what happened Sunday, I am going to defer to her opinion on this break out post of hers. http://twopeas1pod.livejournal.com/1957.html
Some people think Rob made a statement. I don't think that was the case.
The way I see it is that he knows Kristen is shy and he thinks it's cute. They were both riding a high (of the night) and he was teasing her. From the interactions between them that we have been allowed to see, they have always had a playful banter. That was most evident on the Eclipse dvd.
Sunday night the playfulness continued. I think Rob knew she would react as she did and we owe him for the adorable embarrassed smile we got from Kristen.
As for the PR assertion from Lainey and her assistant.
They both said that R/K, though in a real deal, decided to take advantage of the situation. Give the fans what they want and you promote both WFE and BD. Bitter perhaps that she and her band of paps couldn't get anywhere near that set in their own backyard? They especially couldn't get near R/K. When you have to sit in the bushes for grainy shot, you may not be their biggest fans.
I stumbled onto this topic a couple places. PR accusations have become my pet peeve. I don't think Kristen would use any part of her personal life to promote anything. There is work. Then there is her life. There is a clear line between the two. If a studio exec told her to loosen up and be affectionate towards Rob in front of the paps, she would tell them....... Let's just say she wouldn't say "yes sir" to such a request.
