When Kristen Stewart addressed her 'incredibly painful' break up from Robert Pattinson

Kristen, who was back then promoting her movie Equals spoke about how she and Nicholas Hoult, her co-star, who also split from Jennifer Lawrence at that period had a lot in common. "It was incredibly painful," Kristen told The Daily Beast. She added, "Ugh, f----- kill me. It was a really good time for both of us to make this movie. Not all of my friends have been through what I've been through, or what some people have tasted at a relatively speaking young age, and we were not expected to do anything.” Stewart continued, “Everything that we did was explorative, and a meditation on what we already knew."

The actress also stated, "We all felt akin by how much we've been through, and to utilise that is so scary.” “And to acknowledge it, reassess, and jump back into it? Usually you want to move on. But at least we could use some of that for some good,” she added.
