Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have opted out of attending the final four official “Twilight” conventions. The conventions are set for the weekends of August 25 (San Antonio), September 29 (Detroit), October 5 (Parsippany, NJ), and November 3 (Los Angeles).
Fans were hoping that at least one of the stars would attend the final convention in November, but Pattinson and Stewart, along with costar Taylor Lautner, have all opted not to attend, leaving Creation Entertainment a tough job to promote fans’ attendance at the conventions.
“The passion and dedication of Twilight fandom has been amazing and we’re out to throw one last giant convention, a final gathering to see old friends that have made up the Twilight family,” Creation Entertainment says. “Although Rob, Kristen and Taylor will not be with us this time out we will have a super line-up of other Twilight stars and the weekend will be filled with special events, movie prop and costume displays, contests, panels, auctions, parties, exclusive merchandise, music and much more, including some surprises!”
Robert Pattinson has yet to make an official statement on whether his relationship with Kristen Stewart is over for good. So fans are longing to know what impact that will have on the “Breaking Dawn Part 2″ promotional tour. Usually, the three leads have traveled the globe doing press appearances. This year, though, that may be scaled back significantly. It’s just lucky that the photo shoots were completed before news of Kristen’s cheating on Rob made the headlines.
So will the former lovebirds appear together at events? Pattinson certainly knows the fans are eager for answers, though he remains as quiet as ever on the subject of his personal life, calling the media culture that drives such intrusions as “monstrous.”
“You can’t win. The annoying thing is that you can’t attack them, but you can’t defend yourself. The best thing you could possibly do is punch a paparazzi and give them their big payday.”
Luckily, he’s kept his fists to himself thus far.
