How could the sexual tension between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart not spill off-screen?

It's late July, do you know where your nerds are? If they're smart (and rich) nerds, they're in sunny, southern California rubbing elbows with Orcs, Morks and dorks at Comic-Con. The festival started out as a gathering of people interested in sci-fi, super heroes, fantasy and the occult. But it's morphed into a massive multi-media event that touches everything involving magic, paranormal and capes. Where there was once a few guys dressed like Jedi, there is now thousands and thousands of fans waiting in line to check out the latest sneak peek blockbuster preview, meet the writer of their favorite graphic novel or just try to think of something clever to say to a starlet while she signs their Battlestar Galactica hoodie.

One of the biiiiiiiig hits at this year's Comic-Con is the cast of Twilight. Their new flick, New Moon, isn't in theaters until November 20, but Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner (when is he going to get a high-profile off-screen romance?) and the rest of the vampires, werewolves and teenagers are getting the hype ball rolling.

Per the stills, trailers and unsubstantiated gossip, the sexual tension between Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart's Bella Swan will be ratcheted up to 10.5 in this episode. And, if we're to believe anything we read, that mirrors their real life experience. According to Celebitchy, the chemistry between the two is palatable, and annoying to Kristen Stewart. In fact, any questions regarding her personal life and off-screen relationship with Robert Pattinson was rebuffed by the moderator and appeared to make Kristen Stewart uneasy.

The two, irrespective of any actual relationship, have not seen much of each other over the summer. In New York City, Pattinson has been filming Remember Me this summer while Kristen Stewart has been loving rock n' roll in Hollywood playing Joan Jett on the set of The Runaways. Was Comic-Con '09 a reunion of sorts? The video on Celebitchy makes us guess that they're more than just friends but beyond that, who knows? It must be really easy to fall for someone that you're supposed to pretend to love over the course of a 90-day film shoot. Read: Sex With Robert Pattinson Is Amazing

On a scale of 1 to 10.5, how much are you looking forward to New Moon? On the same scale, how in love do you think Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are?
