Pattinson Blasts ‘Ridiculous’ Stewart Romance Rumors

Robert Pattinson is completely baffled by the continued gossip linking him to his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart — calling the romance rumors “ridiculous.”

The pair, who play on-screen lovers Edward Bullen and Bella Swan in the vampire franchise, has been dogged by reports that they are enjoying a secret love affair.

But Pattinson insists the situation has got out of control — especially when he sees their ‘romance’ is front-page news.

He tells Entertainment Tonight, “It becomes a joke. There was some magazine the other day about me and Kristen, and when you look at it and realize it’s on the front of a magazine… You realize that people are actually reading that even though how ridiculous it is. It’s really bizarre.”
