Twilight stars were involved in cheating scandal

Robert Pattinson has opened up about his split from Kristen Stewart.

Kristen, 24, admitted to cheating on Rob two years ago when she was caught in a clinch with married film director Rupert Sanders and the couple ended their relationship the following year.

But Rob, 28, doesn’t understand why people are so interested in the scandal.

Sh*t happens, you know?’ the actor says.

It’s just young people… it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a sh*t?’

Rob admits that having to discuss what happened was pretty difficult though.

The hardest part was talking about it afterwards,’ the Twilight star tells Esquire UK.

Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict.

It’s like that scene in Doubt [2008, in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest suspected of inappropriate behaviour], where he’s talking about how to take back gossip?

They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.’
