Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart say yes to cheap dates, no to the People's Choice Awards

January 6, 2010 |  6:55 pm


Who knew! After all this time, it looks like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are just a couple of low-key kids who really don't like attention that much.

HollywoodLife is reporting that the two not only kept it low-key for their New Year's Eve on the Isle of Wight, but they did it on the cheap.

The maybe-couple showed up at a "dive bar" called Winter Gardens, HL says, where the cover charge was only around $5 per head, with $1.50 shot specials.

“Rob and Kristen were totally normal,” a source said, “they acted like regular people and blended in with the regulars.”

Well, we know millions of regular people who won't get to see these two tonight ...

... that'd be the whole of North America, or the chunk that's watching the People's Choice Awards. Pattinson and Stewart will both be no shows, despite their nominations in the favorite movie actor and favorite movie actress categories. Robert has to work, OK?

Perhaps they'll just find a nice local dive bar and snuggle with draft specials while watching on the telly.

Do you think Rob and Kristen are really a couple? And should they have shown up for the People's Choice Awards? Let us know in comments.
