Twilight's Iconic Leading Couple 

The joy of fans had no limit when the favorite on-screen couple got together in real life. The two first noticed each other for the first time during auditions for the film and developed feelings as taping progressed.

Kristen later opened up about the casting process and her first choice of a romantic lead. "I basically cast him," she told Vanity Fair, narrating the first day of auditions with a few guys hoping for the part. She added:

"Catherine Hardwicke, the director, afterward was like, 'What do you think? This is such a hard choice.' I was like, 'Are you kidding me?! It's such an obvious choice!'"

They were rumored to have some special chemistry off the set, but Kristen was, in fact, still dating Michael Angarano, who she met on the set of “Speak.”

The rumors surrounding Kristen got hotter when she split with Michael that same year and confirmed that “Robsten” quickly formed afterward.

Fans were sure it was the continuation of the screen fairytale, except the couple parted right before Kristen's shameful affair with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders.  Only a year ago, Rupert said in one of his interviews:

"You never know what's coming in life [...] Everyone makes mistakes. I am bound to make more mistakes, and I wouldn't expect my life to be exciting if I didn't."

All the internet gossip about the couple's reunion started at the beginning of this year. They were spotted going out together a few times in 2018. Even though there were sources claiming the beginning of a new romance, it is possible for exes in Hollywood to remain nothing more than good friends.

Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan

After the break up with Robert, it seemed that Kristen was breaking bad, constantly changing between girlfriends. The media could not keep up with her personal life, just seeing her with so many A-list names., including Victoria’s Secret Angel, Stella Maxwell.

The ladies attentively tried to keep their personal life private, but the media snuck in, as usual, exposing how madly in love Kristen and Stella were. It’s hard to say when exactly the two met, but the rumors date back to 2016. 

They were caught on camera snogging in a car on a trip to Milan, giving the first hint that it was official. Little is known about what really went down between these two, as Kristen did a great job hiding it from the public eye.

"I wasn't hiding anything ... I didn't talk about my first relationships that went public because I wanted things that are mine to be mine," she said.

Most recently, Kristen has been with "XOXO" screenwriter Dylan Meyer. Kristen was in an interview with Howard Stern when she was asked how she would feel about marrying Meyer and she enthusiastically said it was not far from happening.

Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen

As a mysterious and enchanting vampire who cannot reconcile with his nature, Edward Cullen won countless hearts around the world. “Twilight” made Robert not just a superstar, but an idol for millions. 

Fans went crazy over the romance of Kristen and Rob. But after they parted ways, Pattinson was very restrained with his love life, until he and FKA Twigs, aka Tahliah Barnett, were spotted hanging out with friends in NY in 2014. 

Rumors about their romance spread right away and a few months later it was clear they were together. Half a year later, the rapper T-Pain gave a wink that the couple was engaged

The couple’s appearance at the LA Dance Annual Gala in late 2016 squashed breakup rumors and kicked off a series of high-profile appearances for the stunning couple. 

But the two broke up in 2017, leaving Robert with a broken heart once again. Insiders told E! News that Pattinson was the one who ended the romance because their travel schedules “took a big toll on the relationship.”

In the summer of 2017 it almost looked like Pattinson could possibly hook up with Katy Perry but it seems they are just friends. Most recently, Pattinson has been linked with British supermodel Suki Waterhouse, but the two are so private that we really don't know much about their relationship

Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black

The strong, reliable, and enchanting wolf, Jacob Black, gathered a decent following of fans for himself as well. Jacob didn't only find his love in the saga, he's also found his true love in real life.

We fell in love with Esme’s incredible motherly love and care for all of her children and her unbelievable ability to sort out conflict. But Elizabeth’s real life is not quite the same as in “Twilight.”

When asked how similar or different she is from her character, she said, "No, I feel like I'm nothing like my character. It's interesting to me that I get cast as mothers and really maternal, sweet, nice people. Maybe I have a vulnerability or something.”

Elizabeth racked up a lot of fame and raised fans’ curiosity around her private life. Her love affairs remain a big mystery. 

All we know, she once dated writer-director Gavin Wiesen eight years ago. Well, it’s a sure thing that Liz wants to keep her personal life private.
