Shortly after starring in the hugely popular 'Twilight' film series, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart began an off-camera romance together, and at the beginning, despite the public's constant interest in their relationship, the two young stars seemed very loved up.

However, the real-life Edward Cullen and Bella Swan couldn't maintain this happiness and their romance came to a quick halt in 2012 when Stewart's affair with her 'Snow Wight and the Huntsman' director, Rupert Sanders, surfaced.

Almost two years have gone since the 24 year-old actress was secretly photographed kissing the filmmaker, and even though R-Patz attempted to get back with her for a short while, the pair haven't been an item or some time.
So what did Pattinson have to say about the whole incident after having time to reflect on it for the past 24 months?
"S--t happens, you know?" the British actor told Esquire U.K. "It's just young people...it's normal! And honestly, who gives a s--t?"
"The hardest part was talking about it afterwards," Pattinson admitted. "Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict. It's like that scene in Doubt, where he's talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you've got to go and collect all the feathers."

But even though the pair haven't been together for quite some time, there is still an invested interest from the media and photographers.

"I don't understand why," he added. "I think it goes through periods where you're assigned 'this is the guy to follow'. But whenever I see a bunch of paparazzi hanging out, I always think, 'Oh God, what have they found out!' Oh, that love child! I totally forgot!"
It is hard to remember when the 28 year-old actor hasn't been a major player in Tinseltown, but Pattinson still remembers the exact moment he felt like he had become a star.
"I remember when it happened," he said. "I was going to clubs in L.A. and you had to call the promoters ahead of time to get on the guest list. But one time I forgot to call, and I was on the list anyway. That's when I knew. I showed up with mustard down my T-shirt and they're like giving me the wink, 'Yeah, man, you're on the list.'"
