There’s been a lot of talk over the last few weeks about where Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart will live while they shoot Breaking Dawn.
The couple is going to spend several months in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with the rest of the cast and crew.
Plenty of the usual suspects are stirring rumors about Stewart and Pattinson trading their hotel accommodations for a “love nest.”
Today, Life & Style has an item about the two moving out of the Hilton and into their own “private love pad.” “They wanted more privacy,” an “insider” tells the magazine. “Plus, it’s more fun to play house in a real house.”
Always eager to hop on the nearest bandwagon, HollywoodLife picks up the report and runs with it, chiming, “Finally Rob and Kristen are getting plenty of one-on-one time together in their very own house!”
We’ve gotten a lot of inquiries this week on the subject.
Here’s what Gossip Cop knows:
Breaking Dawn cast members receive a per diem for living expenses, and they’re free to use it as they see fit. Pattinson and Stewart can stay anywhere they like, as long as it doesn’t interfere with production (obviously).
But here’s what Gossip Cop thinks about the “love nest” story.
We’re choosing to ignore it.
Pattinson and Stewart’s Eclipse shoot in Vancouver last year turned into a nightmare of endless paparazzi pursuits and little concern for privacy. Their hotel was under constant surveillance. Their co-stars’ lives were disrupted. And the experience (rightly) soured the couple on many aspects of celebrity.
Regardless of where Pattinson and Stewart live this winter and spring, they’ll already be in the public eye when they film or go out. That should be enough.
Speculating about where they spend their limited private moments won’t lead anywhere good.
