Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson: 'New Moon,' same rumors

Are they or aren't they? It's a common refrain among celeb watchers -- especially among young, ardent fans of the "Twilight" saga. Because if Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who play the films' young lovers, are actually dating in real life . . . then "Twilight" is basically real, right?

If Stewart's and Pattinson's ongoing subterfuge is any indication, we'll never know for sure. But, hey, they've really got us hooked! And confused. Here, from the publicity ramp-up before sequel "New Moon's" Nov. 20 release, is what we know. So many words, strung into sentences -- but what do any of them mean?

  • In a Vanity Fair cover story, Pattinson, 23, says he's not dating Stewart, 19 -- but it doesn't really matter what he tells the tabloids: "I've literally been across the country [from Kristen], and it's like 'Oh, they were on secret dates!' It's like 'Where? I can't get out of my hotel room!'" Fair enough.
  • At an Entertainment Weekly interview with "New Moon" stars last week, Stewart got defensive when asked about the romance rumors . . . only adding to them. "I probably would've answered it if people hadn't made such a big deal about it," she said, "But I'm not going to give the fiending [fiending? Yes, fiending.] an answer." Pattinson tried to interject, but Stewart cut him off: "There's no answer that's not going to tip you one way or the other. Think about every hypothetical situation: 'Okay, we are. We aren't. I'm a lesbian.' I'm just trying to keep something." Something . . . opaque.
  • The smoking gun? Catherine Hardwicke, who directed "Twilight" and cast both leads, seemed confident about some sort of relationship. "I didn't have a camera in the hotel room. I cannot say," Hardwicke told Time magazine. "But in terms of what Kristen told me directly, it didn't happen on the first movie. Nothing crossed the line while on the first film. I think it took a long time for Kristen to realize, O.K., I've got to give this a go and really try to be with this person."
