Actress Kristen Stewart isn’t exactly known for being animated. She’s pretty cool, calm, and collected. Most famous for playing the title character, Bella Swan, in the Twilight film franchise, she’s been reluctant to embrace fame because being a celebrity makes her kind of uncomfortable. In fact, she left mainstream Hollywood some time ago to focus more on indie films. She doesn’t have an Instagram account, and she tries to stay out of the public eye. At least, she has until recently.
Kristen’s been seen out and about in Los Angeles with her girlfriend, Dylan Meyer, and rumor has it the two of them are getting married. Although no official announcement has been made yet, Kristen hasn’t been able to stop talking about being in love. She seems genuinely excited. Here’s what we know so far about Kristen and Dylan’s supposed engagement.
10 Kristen Is Wearing A Shiny New Ring
For Kristen’s birthday, Dylan posted a black-and-white photo on Instagram of Kristen and her dog sitting by the beach. Fans went crazy over the shiny new ring on Kristen’s finger and the words “cute little family” in the caption. Could it be an engagement ring? The consensus seems to be that Kristen and Dylan are deservedly engaged.
9 Dylan’s Been Happy Since October 2019
While it’s rumored that Kristen and Dylan were dating for a few months prior, Dylan posted “find me under the covers hiding from the happiness police” in an October 2019 Instagram post that featured her and Kristen kissing. Since then, she’s periodically posted photos of her and Kristen with other captions like “it’s a short ride on this earth, spend your time with someone that inspires you to be the best version of yourself.” Kristen has never looked happier.
8 Kristen Has Been Thinking About The Engagement For Awhile
Back in November 2019, Kristen told Howard Stern that she knew she was in love with Dylan after only two weeks of dating. The pair had met six years earlier on the set of a movie, but their paths didn't cross again after that. She also told Stern that she couldn’t wait to propose, and that she was making plans to do so. While the proposal didn’t happen until more than a year later, Kristen had plenty of time to plan!
7 They’re Both Passionate About Politics
Back in June 2020, Kristen and Dylan participated in a Black Lives Matter protest in Los Angeles. In September 2020, on National Voter Registration Day, Dylan posted a photo of Kristen sporting a “Vote” t-shirt. Since Kristen doesn’t have her own Instagram account, Dylan let Kristen hijack hers for the day to post a message about the importance of heading to the polls. Clearly, they are a couple with shared values and interests.
6 Kristen Wore Princess Diana’s Engagement Ring
Kristen just wrapped up the movie Spencer where she had the opportunity to play Princess Diana. The film chronicles three days of Diana’s life. In a publicity photo released by Neon, Stewart is seen wearing a replica of Princess Diana’s famous engagement ring, which now belongs to Kate Middleton. Perhaps the ring felt right on Kristen’s finger and inspired her to propose to Dylan.
5 Dylan’s Career Is Heating Up
Dylan is an accomplished writer, director, and producer. She co-wrote the screenplay for the 2021 Netflix comedy Moxie, which was directed by Amy Poehler, and she wrote and produced the 2016 drama XOXO. She also scripted the sci-fi tv series Miss 2059. When gushing to Howard Stern, Kristen said, “She’s a writer, she’s brilliant.” According to the Hollywood Reporter, Dylan also just signed with UTA, which means great things could be coming down the pike.
4 Kristen Is Heading To Greece
Kristen has signed on to the sci-fi flick Crimes of the Future, which will also star Viggo Mortensen. The thriller centers around a performance artist who starts growing new organs in his body. Filming is set to begin soon in Athens, Greece, which would be a great opportunity for Kristen and Dylan to spend some time away from Los Angeles. Will they take advantage of it?
3 PDA Is Okay
In Hollywood, you don’t often see public displays of affection. Most couples hide their relationship so they aren’t caught on camera by the paparazzi. But since they started dating, Kristen and Dylan have been caught kissing on a New York City stoop and walking around Los Angeles holding hands. Even when Kristen was dating Robert Pattinson, they never publicly talked about their relationship. People knew they were dating, but they kept the relationship private. Times have changed!
2 Kristen Felt Pressured To Stay With Robert
Speaking of Robert Pattinson, Kristen told The New York Times Style Magazine back in 2016 that she felt pressured to stay with her Twilight co-star after the media and fans made such a big deal about their relationship. “People wanted me and Rob to be together so badly that our relationship was made into a product,” she said. “It wasn’t real life anymore and that was gross to me.” Although they dated for four years, Kristen wound up cheating on Robert with director Rupert Sanders, and that ended the relationship.
1 Living A Life With No Labels
In 2020, Kristen starred in the Hulu holiday film Happiest Season. It’s the story of a lesbian couple who struggle to come out to a conservative family during the holidays. Kristen can relate to the dilemma, but she also doesn’t like labels. “The first time I ever dated a girl, I was immediately being asked if I was a lesbian. And it’s like, ‘God, I’m 21-years-old,” she told InStyle magazine. “I think the added pressure of representing a group of people, of representing queerness, wasn’t something I understood then. Only now can I see it. Retrospectively, I can tell you I have experience with this story. But back then, I would have been like, ‘No, I’m fine. My parents are fine with it. Everything’s fine.’ That’s bullshit. It’s been hard. It’s been weird. It’s that way for everyone.”
Just a couple of years prior to 'Superbad', Jonah Hill could've taken his career in a different direction.
