Who would have thought that incoming U.S. President Donald Trump had been quite affected by “Twilight” couple Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s breakup a couple of years ago? In a recent interview, the actress finally shed some light on Trump posting several messages on Twitter about his own opinions regarding the Stewart-Pattinson split.
In an interview with Variety, the 26-year-old “Twilight” actress finally opened up about Trump’s 2012 tweets, saying America’s current head of state was furious at her. Stewart also revealed that Trump seemed “obsessed” with her.
“He was mad at me a couple years ago, really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is crazy,” Stewart told the publication. “I can’t even understand it. I literally cannot even understand it. It’s such far-out concept that I don’t want to believe that actually is happening. It’s insane.”
Trump’s tweets about Stewart and Pattinson emerged online between Oct. 17 and Nov. 13, 2012, New York Daily News revealed. It came after Stewart was caught cheating on Pattinson with her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders.
Despite Stewart’s public apology, the couple eventually parted ways in May 2013, 10 months after they tried to stay in a relationship and fight for their love. At the time, Pattinson got an ally through Trump, who said that the 30-year-old British actor should not take Stewart back because she will just cheat on him again.

Meanwhile, on a much lighter note, Stewart has reportedly co-authored a scientific research paper on artificial intelligence (AI). According to The Telegraph, Stewart’s paper was published by the Cornell University Library, and it was titled “Bringing Impressionism to Life with Neutral Style Transfer in Come Swim.” Although the research is yet to be peer reviewed, it explored the so-called Neutral Style Transfer technique, a machine learning type that can “artistically redraw an image in the style of a source style image.”
Speaking of “Come Swim,” the 17-minute short film is Stewart’s directorial debut, E! News noted. It featured just one actor, Josh Kaye, and Sydney Lopez’s voiceover work. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was produced in collaboration with Refinery29 for its ShatterBox Anthology, which is a collection of female-directed short films.
