By Sanetra Richards

Leaving the past in the past. That is exactly what Rob Pattinson tends to do. According to, the Twilight alum spoke out about the public affair that ultimately ended his relationship with ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart. From the looks of it, the actor has moved on and even joked about the cheating scandal in the September issue of Esquire UK. “S— happens, you know?” said the 28-year-old actor. “It’s just young people… it’s normal! And honestly, who gives a s—?” News broke back in July of 2012 when photos were released of Stewart cheating with married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. “The hardest part was talking about it afterwards,” Pattinson went on to say about the fling. “Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can’t predict.” After the affair went public, Stewart released an apology to Pattinson, stating: “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.” The former couple attempted to repair the relationship, but ended up going their separate ways. “It’s like that scene in Doubt [2008, in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest suspected of inappropriate behavior], where he’s talking about how to take back gossip?” Pattinson teased the allegations resulting from his relationship. “They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you’ve got to go and collect all the feathers.”

Cupid’s Advice:

Your worst fear came to light: You discovered your partner tainted the relationship by cheating. A number of emotions are piled up and you do not know where to go from here. Being cheated on can leave both good and bad effects on a person. You are probably thinking you will never get over this heartbreak. Can you? Sure, you can. Cupid is here to tell you a few steps to get there:

1. Good support system: In any situation, it is always best to have a few people to count on during times needed. If you are a person who tends to build a wall and does not communicate very well, this will become evident after a breakup. Avoid pushing those closest to you away just because of one person – do not let the cheating ex ruin it for all. Your family and friends are there to listen when needed.

2. Do not trigger any specific memories: If in your control, stay away from the places that remind you of your ex. If you all had a favorite burger shack, this will indeed bring back any romantic memories shared together while there (that is the last thing you need while grieving).
