Kristen Stewart says dating Robert Pattinson was 'gross'

Hollywood actress Kristen Stewart has admitted her romance with Robert Pattinson 'wasn't real life' and that became 'gross' to her.

The high-profile romance became a product after the pair shot to fame while starring in the vampire movie series.

The couple were together for five years but split up after she was unfaithful with her Snow White And The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in 2012.

In an interview with the New York Times' T magazine, the 26 year-old said: "People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product.

"It wasn't real life any more. And that was gross to me. It's not that I want to hide who I am or hide anything I'm doing in my life.

"It's that I don't want to become a part of a story for entertainment value."

Stewart, who played Bella Swan in Twilight opposite Pattinson's Edward Cullen, released a statement apologising after reports emerged about her affair.

She wrote she was "deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment" she had caused.

"This momentary indiscretion has jeopardised the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob," Stewart said at the time.

Pattinson, 30, is now in a relationship with musician FKA Twigs.
