Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart often look smoking hot together, but they don’t look quite as good when they’re captured on camera smoking cigarettes together. In fact, one body language expert thinks that the couple is actually ashamed of their unhealthy habit.
Of course, they probably should feel bad about it—they’re being bad role models for young Twilight fans, and smoking is dangerous, deadly, and can cause premature aging (something no actor or actress wants to have to deal with). So maybe thoughts like this are what make Rob and Kristen look so uncomfortable while light up. In fact, body language expert Linda Talley says she can tell that Rob and Kristen are embarrassed about puffing away based on recent photos of the two caught in the act.
According to Hollywood Life, Talley says that Kristen Stewart putting on a hat to smoke shows that she’s trying to hide her habit. Meanwhile her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, put his hoodie over his head before lighting up.
It’s an interesting observation, but perhaps Kristen and Rob were just switching up their headgear because of anxiety—the two of them do come off as being a bit fidgety sometimes. They were talking to a group of people, so maybe the social situation was making them act that way. They also weren’t the only two in the group taking a cigarette break, so they shouldn’t have felt too embarrassed about doing something unhealthy in front of their friends. And who knows? Maybe they were nervously taking their headgear on and off because they were working on a project with Katy Perry (stars can get star-struck, too).
But it would actually be a good thing if Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are really ashamed over their smoking habit—if they both start to feel bad enough about it, perhaps they’ll try to quit together. Accomplishing something like this could actually end up making them even stronger as a couple.
