"She is counting down the minutes until he is home," a source exclusively tells E! News, revealing that the Twilight costars have been talking regularly and texting daily since Pattinson flew off to Australia to shoot The Rover.
"He loves her, but he wants to work, too—which is understandable," the insider adds.
The long distance between them, coupled with the fact that Stewart has not gone to visit Pattinson, prompted intense speculation that their relationship was either in trouble or already over.
But, our source says, "They are absolutely still together. They are totally fine."
Word was—and still is—that the now-hobbled Stewart simply didn't want to fly down there and create the distraction on the Rover set that her presence would inevitably create.
Pattinson has been in Adelaide since mid-January.
