Here's a last look at them in '09, just in case you forgot:

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

Nothing is more annoying than picking up a tabloid and seeing plain faced people on the cover. The imagined romance between Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson was little more than bad fangirl fiction. It is difficult to understand t...
