Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart saved some of their most passionate scenes for Breaking Dawn, Part 2.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were never really comfortable in the spotlight; now they’re finally getting what they’ve wished for during four years of “Twilight” mayhem. Their fame is fading.

Neither Pattinson nor Stewart have any big movies on the horizon. Rob has at least five films lined up, but it’s unlikely any will see the light of day this year.

Stewart big post-“Twilight” opus, “On the Road,” barely made a blip in U.S. theaters last December before fading into pay-per-view television. It screened at the Cannes Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival, to mix reviews and vanished.

She currently doesn’t have any films in the works. Although there has been talk about a “Snow White and the Huntsman” sequel with Chris Hemsworth, it’s still in the talking stage.

Now, even the MTV Movie Awards is snubbing them. They were the reigning sweethearts for the last four years, but MTV released its nominations yesterday, March 5, and neither made the cut, not even for “Best Kiss,” a title they’ve held for the last four years.

You know it’s the end because “Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” was loaded with some of the most passionate scenes between the two of the entire film series.

This year, odds-on favorite Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper for Silver Linings Playbook” and Emma Watson and Logan Lerman for “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” are the favorites to take their place.

Kerry Washington and Jamie Foxx for “Django Unchained,” Kara Hayward and Jared Gilman from “Moonrise Kingdom” and Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg for “Ted” are also in the running.

Robert Pattinson, Guy Pearce Shout Out to Fans (watch!)

The only thing keeping “RobSten” in the headlines, these days, are a handful of tabloid websites, led by HollywoodLife. They are virtually inventing stories in a last-ditch effort to draw page views from fans. Are they together? Are they apart?

These sites don’t have a clue, even though they publish stories almost daily.

Rest assured, Rob and Kristen’s close friends, who are in the know about them, aren’t talking to these sites. How much longer the charade can go on is anyone’s guess. But you can bet Rob and Kristen would love nothing better than to be yesterday’s news.
