Twilight couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart embrace in rare display of affection

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are famously coy about their relationship, but the pair let their guard down on Sunday when they were caught cosying up in New York.

The smitten couple, who met on the set of Twilight, were snapped sharing a romantic kiss in a car after the premiere of the hunk’s new film Water For Elephants.

Kristen, 21, had earlier shown her support for her boyfriend by attending the screening with his mum and dad –  but she avoided the red carpet.

Instead, Robert, 24, posed with co-star Reese Witherspoon at the premiere.
