Robert Pattinson - Robert Pattinson Brushes Off Kristen Stewart's Cheating Scandal

Robert Pattinson has no hard feelings about his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart after she torpedoed their romance by locking lips with a married moviemaker in 2012, insisting infidelity is "normal" among young lovers.

The British actor's relationship with his Twilight co-star was rocked two years ago, when Stewart was photographed kissing her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in a Los Angeles car park.

The illicit romance prompted Pattinson and Stewart to briefly split, before parting ways for good last year (13), while it also destroyed Sanders' marriage to model/actress Liberty Ross. Their divorce was finalised last week (ends25Jul14).

Pattinson has now opened up about the infamous fling in a candid new interview with Britain's Esquire magazine, admitting the worst part of the scandal was having to discuss it in public.

Brushing off the cheating controversy, he says, "S**t happens, you know? It's just young people... it's normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t?

"The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict."

The actor's dramatic personal life has also turned him into a paparazzi target, but Pattinson insists he "doesn't understand" the media's obsession with him.

Earlier this year (14), the actor sold off the Los Angeles property he once shared with Stewart, and he admits he won't miss having snappers camped outside his home.

He explains, "(The paparazzi) photographed anyone who came up to the gate, anyone who rang the bell, and they followed any car that came in and out. I used to dress up my assistant as me, and get him to drive off with like five cars following him around for hours..."

And he jokes, "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!'"
