The Word: Is Kristen Stewart’s new squeeze Michael Pitt?
Kristen Stewart may have found a new leading man in former “Boardwalk Empire” star Michael Pitt, as the two have reportedly been secretly dating since meeting at Paris Fashion Week, according to the Sun.
“Kristen’s not over Rob but she’s getting there, and Michael’s helping her through it,” a source says. “She vowed to throw herself into work and be single this summer, but when she met Michael last week, they hit it off.” And the two apparently have a lot in common, according to the source: “They both hate the spotlight and are smart bookworm types.”
But not so fast, says Michael’s rep, telling E! News, “While we do not comment on our clients’ personal lives, please know that there is absolutely no truth whatsoever to this rumor that Michael Pitt and Kristen Stewart are dating.”
I love how “they both hate the spotlight” is code for “they are both moody as hell.” Check out this picture of them, above. I honestly can’t handle their put-upon coolness.
It’s interesting — Lainey claims the reason Michael kept his sunglasses on during Paris Fashion Week was to hide his eyes. “[He] has had a problem for a long time. The eyes give it away,” she writes. What kind of problem? How extensive are we talking here, Lainey?
I feel like Kristen would be one to flirt with drugs — she seems to have the rock ‘n’ roll look and attitude down pat. Let’s hope she plays it safe with this one. But maybe not being of sound mind is the reason she would cheat on this?
