In a new interview with Esquire U.K., the 28-year-old Brit actor reflects on the public's intense fascination with his and Stewart's relationship, which ultimately ended after Stewart was caught cheating on him.
"S--t happens, you know?" the Twilight star laughed. "It's just young people...it's normal! And honestly, who gives a s--t?"
"The hardest part was talking about it afterwards," Pattinson added. "Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict," he says. "It's like that scene in Doubt, where he's talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you've got to go and collect all the feathers."
