Kristen Stewart has always been reluctant to talk about her personal life. In the four years she was getting romantically linked to Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, neither directly admitted the relationship even when paparazzi shots and eye witness testimonies already drove home the truth.
Stewart only admitted her relationship with Pattinson for the first time in July 2012 when photos of her having an affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders got published in Us Weekly.
When asked why she's too guarded when it comes to matters of the heart, she told GQ magazine "I'm selfish. I'm like, 'That's mine!' And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. It's a funny little game to play and it's a slippery slope. I always say to myself I'm never going to give anything away because there's never any point or benefit for me."
So while Stewart opts to remain tight-lipped, the rumour mills get all the more busy churning out stories - from truths, to semi-truths, to truly disjointed facts. Here's what Hollywood's gossip factory have produced so far, the men in KStew's life, real or otherwise. (Click Slideshow to view photos)
Michael Angarano - Before Rob, there was Mike. He and Kristen met on the set of the 2004 indie drama Speak and began dating in 2005 until 2009. They split before Kristen began going out with Rob.
Robert Pattinson - Of course, he is the other half of the Robsten pairing that drove intense media and fan speculation and attention. For a while, many had hoped that Rob is KStew's Mr. Right. The Twilight sweethearts dated from 2009 until recently when it was reported that they had broken up. Their relationship bore only one major crack, that's when Kristen was caught in her momentary indiscretion with...
Rupert Sanders - The Snow White and the Huntsman director who was photographed with Kristen squeezed in an embrace in July 2012. The shocking admission of betrayal from Kristen led to a four-month split up for the Twilight couple. The affair also saw the marriage of Rupert to model Liberty Ross consequently dissolved.
Jim Sturgess - Classify it as rumour, doesn't matter. The Cloud Atlas star's apparent chemistry with Kristen is being hyped going into the filming of The Big Shoe where both are featured. Is Kristen replacing a Brit for another Brit? According to HollywoodLife.com, "Jim possesses a lot of qualities that Kristen desires." A source close to the Hollywood hottie said Jim and Kristen seem to click, and that Jim is a lot like Rob with his shy, unassuming demeanour and lovable British accent. Problem is, Mickey O-Brien, La Roux keyboardist and Jim's girlfriend.
And what about the hunky Patrick Schwarzenegger? What about him? Nah. He just flirted with Kristen at the birthday bash of Taylor Lautner months ago. But apparently, Kristen didn't give him the time of day.
