Kristen Stewart, Nikki Reed “Feud” Over?
As Gossip Cop reported, Stewart attended the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event on Wednesday, where she took a picture with Twilight co-star Reed. In the grand scheme of things, it was no big deal. But here’s how HollywoodLife is spinning it: “Kristen Stewart & Nikki Reed End Feud & Reunite For 1st Photo In Years — See Pic” (at right).
The site’s story, posted two days after the snapshot was taken, says, “Now that Kristen Stewart, 26, is no longer dating Robert Pattinson, 30, it looks like she’s cool with his other ex, Nikki Reed! Things were obviously always awkward for the Twilight stars because of their mutual ex-boyfriend, but they seemed to have put their differences in the past now — they even took a pic together at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show earlier this week.”
In fact, the outlet previously said Stewart and Reed “risk[ed an] awkward run-in” when they both also attended the Elle “Women In Hollywood” Awards this week but didn’t pose for photos. At the time, the webloid acknowledged, “It remains unconfirmed whether or not Kristen and Nikki actually came in contact with each other during the event.” Now the bad blog is acting like there was a major change in their dynamic because they ended up posing for pic together days later.
That’s just not an accurate take on any of it. Stewart and Reed haven’t been feuding all these years, so there was nothing “awkward” to “risk” and no bad blood to suddenly “end.” That’s just pure fiction.
Yes, this was the first time the former colleagues posed together since 2012. But this week also marked the first time Stewart and another Twilight actress, Anna Kendrick, took a picture together since 2010. Was that because they just ended a years-long feud, too? Of course not.
There’s no dramatic explanation or backstory to either situation. They just simply decided to spend a few seconds having their picture taken. But HollywoodLies rather sensationalize and stir the pot than simply report the basic facts.
