The actress, who rose to fame after playing Bella Swan in the Twilight film franchise, made headlines for her personal life when she sparked romance rumors with costar Robert Pattinson. The Couple played love interests on screen before taking their Relationship to the next level.
After going public in 2009, Stewart and Pattinson broke up three years later when photos surfaced of her kissing her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. The pair ultimately reconciled but parted ways for a final time in 2013.
The Charlie’s Angels star later opened up about having to weather major ups and downs in her first high-profile romance.
“I wasn’t hiding anything. I didn’t talk about my first relationships that went public because I wanted things that are mine to be mine,” she told the Sunday Times in March 2017 about the U.K. native. “I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world. But considering I had so many eyes on me, I suddenly realized [my private life] affects a greater number of people than just me. It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves.”
According to Stewart, her romance with the Batman star was not meant to work out. “When me and Rob were together, we did not have an example to go by. So much was taken from us that, in trying to control one aspect, we were just, like, ‘No, we will never talk about it. Never. Because it’s ours,” she told Harper’s Bazaar U.K. in 2019.
The Panic actress was later linked to model Stella Maxwell, who she dated on and off from 2016 until 2019. Later that year, Stewart sparked romance speculation when she was spotted with screenwriter Dylan Meyer, who she had initially met on set years prior.
At the time, the Academy Award nominee discussed how dating in the public eye affected her journey with her sexuality.
“The first time I ever dated a girl, I was immediately being asked if I was a lesbian. And it’s like, ‘God, I’m 21 years old.’ I felt like maybe there were things that have hurt people I’ve been with. Not because I felt ashamed of being openly gay but because I didn’t like giving myself to the public, in a way. It felt like such thievery. This was a period of time when I was sort of cagey,” she explained to InStyle in November 2020. “Even in my previous relationships, which were straight, we did everything we could to not be photographed doing things — things that would become not ours. So I think the added pressure of representing a group of people, of representing queerness, wasn’t something I understood then. Only now can I see it.”
Three months after their her first public outing with Meyer, the Happiest Season star gushed that she was looking forward to proposing to her girlfriend in the future.
“I‘ve known her for, like, six years, but we only started seeing each other [romantically]. Two weeks in, it was literally, like, the day that I met her, all bets were off,” Stewart explained on The Howard Stern Show in November 2019. “I met her years ago on a movie. I hadn’t seen her in, like, two years and she had just walked up to a friend’s birthday party and I was just, like, ‘Where have you been and how have I not known you?’”
One year later, Stewart confirmed that she had popped the question and the twosome were engaged.
