Following the recent personal controversies involving Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, you'd imagine that the pair wouldn't really be standing side by side any time soon. But Summit Entertainment has revealed that Stewart and Pattinson will join forces to promote their upcoming film Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the final chapter in The Twilight Saga.
Summit told Entertainment Weekly, ""While it is studio policy not to comment on the personal lives of actors, Summit is moving full steam ahead and looking forward to this November's opening of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. We are confident that the film delivers amazing entertainment for our passionate fans and general audience alike."" Hollywood.com has reached out to the studio and the actors for comment.
While this turn of events is unexpected, it is not exactly unprecedented. Exes have banded together in the name of cinema before. Famously amicable divorcees Courteney Cox and David Arquette teamed up to promote Scream 4, and Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman both attended the Red Carpet premiere for the latter's 2001 movie The Others an event that Kidman agreed was "a little bit rough." So, Stewart and Pattinson aren't in bad company here. Hopefully, their post-romantic relationship can sway towards the Cox/Arquette vein. Those guys really have this ""better as friends"" thing down pat.
