Robert Pattison, better known as the unwashed, sparkly vampire Edward in the Twilight series, has been in New York shooting a movie with Lost's Emilie de Ravin for the past few weeks, as you might have heard, even if you’ve been under a rock lately (the screaming of his obsessive tweenage fans is audible from Portland. Both of them). And despite his rumored romance with Emilie, Robert is following the quaint 19th century custom of pining away for his Twilight costar Kristen Stewart, who is in LA shooting The Runaways.
"Rob is constantly texting and calling Kristen to 'check in'," a source told OK! magazine recently. "He's invited her and their New Moon co-star Dakota Fanning to fly to New York and hang out with him and his friends some weekends—his treat." Why There's No Vampire Sex in Twilight

According to OK!'s highly placed source, Robert is just counting the days till he and Kristen are reunited to resume their vampire-mortal love affair in the third film in the series, Eclipse, or before that, when they promote New Moon this fall. Hopefully there will be lots more TV appearances that feature Kristen sulking and staring at her shoes, because that's just so entertaining, and maybe Robert will stick with his fixation on outdated customs and get himself a nice little case of consumption, or maybe some gout, like Jared Leto.

In addition to his supposed romance with de Ravin in New York and the hilarious rumor in an Australian tabloid that he got Kristen Stewart pregnant, Robert has been outed as an "amazing" partner in sexytimes by a former girlfriend. So he's got that going for him. Now, if only he could go out in public without being set upon by a ravenous horde of crying virgins.
