I have realized that you can close yourself off to life if you put walls up, but it’s a difficult thing. You can’t see over people, can’t see in and you also can’t see out. So I have gotten quite comfortable with being unafraid. I keep saying the same thing, it’s not about being fearless but really just embracing the fears and using them. …. I’m a contemporary, sensitive, normal girl, and it’s difficult to try and empathize with someone who seems to have a lack of empathy [Kristen's character in 'On the Road'].
—Kristen Stewart, from V magazine, on using her fears to propel her forward, and also on empathy, which is a new development, here. Empathy? That’s, like, a really, really advanced emotion. There’s just so much that goes into it and it takes someone who’s got a good conceptualization of complicated human feelings. Is something big happening here with Kristen? Something … I don’t know, adult? Because gosh, I just couldn’t be prouder if I tried (no, honestly—if I’d actually gone and tried).

It seems like ever since Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson got back together after that whole cheating incident, things haven’t been all that awesome. There were rumors that Kristen wouldn’t let Rob touch her, and rumors that Kristen was getting frustrated by the fact that Rob couldn’t get over it completely.
Now the story is that Rob knows he can’t get over it completely, and that’s why he’s giving himself a deadline. He has until February 14th, the international day of lovers and red roses and sitting in your pajamas with a pint of ice cream and a heart full of regret, to decide what he wants to do. He’s going to just take January off and decide if he wants to stick with Kristen for the long haul (AND MAYBE PROPOSE) or if he wants to just cut his losses and be done.
This is fair, I guess, but I’m sticking with my original advice of “just run, Rob, run to me and sleep on my couch while I feed you soup and put in sad movies and fix your heart.” I just don’t see how someone, especially a sensitive guy like Rob, can just carry on after that kind of thing. And I know we’ve talked about this plenty of times before, but I don’t get how you can ever get equal footing after that. It seems like after one person has an affair, things are, at best, weirdly and permanently skewed. I don’t get it.
So I’ll expect you over in mid-February, Rob. I’ll get a supply of Nicholas Sparks movies and wine ready. You just bring your sad self over whenever you need to.

So it’s from the Enquirer, so we’re going to take it all with a grain of salt, but there’s a part of me that really, really wants to believe it out of sheer absurdity. Ahem. From the Enquirer:
In a desperate big to hold on to the love of her life, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart is going for bust – with a boob job! Rob and Kristen is at a critical crossroads following the end of their Twilight series, and Kristen is frightened that unless she does something radical, Robert will kick her to the curb, say source.
“Kristen is terrified that Rob is going to leave her for someone else,” revealed an insider. “She has always been insecure about her boobs, and she is totally convinced Rob would find it a massive turn-on if she had even a subtle size increase.”
“Whenever they’re out together, she’s always on high alert to see which girls seem to capture his attention, and they’re always girls with big boobs. She’s scared he may leave her for one of them. It’s an unhealthy obsession she can’t get out of her head.”
Kristen – who in the past complained she looks “like a boy” – isn’t the typical cosmetic breast surgery candidate, said a close source. “This is a girl whose makeup artist has to beg her to wear red lipstick and who prefers sneakers. But she’s desperate to hang on to Rob, and thinks a breast augmentation will do the trick.”
Can you guys imagine Kristen Stewart with a huge, heaving rack of tits? I sure can’t. She’s just too tomboyish for boobs a la Kate Upton. If you can’t remember what Kristen’s sweet little titlets look like, jump in for a NSFW screenshot from ‘On the Road’. I dare you.

Oh man. How awful. From an interview with the Huffington Post:
What’s your guiltiest pleasure?
Hmm. I take these things very seriously. Whenever anyone’s like, “Oh, we’re just gonna do a fun quick-fire-question thing.” My guiltiest pleasure? Shit. God. Dude, what’s yours?
Oh, God, I probably wouldn’t want to say, now that I think about it.
Have you ever stolen anything?
Actually, no. I stole a pack of gum when I was younger and literally turned right around and gave it back. And he was such an asshole to me. I was like, “I should have just walked. I am being a good person.” And he literally chastised me for 15 minutes. I was like, “Why did I even give this back to him?”
If failure weren’t an option, what’s one thing you would do?
Oh, god. God. That is too — dude, these are not quick-fire questions. They’re heavy questions.
What shows are on your DVR?
I actually don’t watch TV.
Do you ever text in the movie theater?
Um, I don’t typically sit in a movie theater.
If you could ask Kim Kardashian one question, what would it be?
Um, wow. I have no idea.
Did she learn all of that “um” and “wow” and “God” in thespian school? Because she just had to have learned it in thespian school, because it’s so ingrained in her psyche. I think that when Kristen Stewart dies, we should probably engrave on her headstone, “Um, wow, God,” because it’d probably be, like, so fitting.
In recent Kristen news, that movie that she was supposed to do with Ben Affleck? This big “comedy” that’s supposed to be her crossover role into major, non-’Twilight’, non-tween films? According to Variety, Ben Affleck has gone and bailed, citing reasons like “no time” and “bad co-stars.” I’m kidding about the co-star part, but the lack of time, Ben claims, is the main reason he’s no longer going to be affiliated with the production.
The film is called ‘Focus’, and Ben’s former character is labeled “veteran grifter” who becomes romantically involved with an up-and-coming con-artist, which is where Kristen comes into play. Sources say that there was to be a variety of passionate scenes, including a post-sex shot in bed. Ick.

“It’s not a terrible thing if you’re either loved or hated. But honestly, I don’t care ’cause it doesn’t keep me from doing my shit. And I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention.”
You know, you kind of have to applaud Kristen for this statement. The whole “I don’t really give a shit, but sorry if you do” attitude. Despite all the public outrage – which, at least for me, came from being weirdly protective of poor Robert Pattinson – she really doesn’t owe us any kind of apology. Maybe a public apology to Rupert Sanders for letting him go down on her right after she got out of the gym, and maybe, maybe an apology to us for being dumb enough to let all this happen in public in broad daylight, but an apology for the affair altogether? Nah, we don’t really need that.
