They were deeply loved and their fanbase kept growing with the release of other sequels.
To satiate every media house and fan’s dreams, soon there were rumours about Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson dating which was confirmed in 2009 when they were spotted holding hands just before the release of the first sequel.
