Twilight director calls on fans to respect split stars
Thu, 09 Aug 2012 10:30a.m.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 director Bill Condon has urged fans of the film series to respect Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart as they work past the heartache of their recent real-life split.
Fans have turned on the actress after she confessed to a fling with her married Snow White & the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. The big reveal appears to have ended her romance with Twilight co-star Pattinson.
And as the couple's legion of followers attempt to deal with their own heartbreak about the break-up, filmmaker Condon is asking them to be as respectful to the former couple as Pattinson and Stewart have been to fans.
He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it's not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that.
"Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon.
"They have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it's time that some of that respect be returned to them."
Both stars are expected to be part of the promotional circus for the final Twilight film in the weeks leading up to its release.
Pattinson will return to the spotlight from his self-imposed exile next week when he promotes his new David Cronenberg movie Cosmopolis.

Finally!! Some1 n hollywood is speaking out fot the two. I'm so tired of hearing about the breakup. N maybe its bc I'm 23 n most of the fans of twilight are n jr high n high school. But even when I was n high school the only thing as a fan I had on movie stars was a crush. N rob is really hot. But I've always thought of actors as jus that. Actors. This their job. Their career. They have a life outside of the movies. They live jus every1 else does jus with more money. They make mistakes. They have families. They have feelings. I jus wish that other twihards can give kristen n rob a little breathing room until bd pt2 comes out. N when it does I hope all the crazy questions can b cut down to a big minimum.
