These two actors used to work together on a TV series that ended in the aughts.
They are still good friends. However, fans have always desperately wanted them to couple up in a real life romantic relationship.
Well, we have good news for those fans:
Now that they are filming together again, their publicists will be taking total advantage of you and your fantasy by creating a PR romance! Expect many leaked reports of them dating, spending family time together, holding hands, romantic dinners and weekend trips, paparazzi shots of the two of them caught in secret intimate encounters, sneaking out of each other’s trailers and hotel rooms, verbal “slips” about the nature of their relationship, etc.
We don’t think they will go as far as jewelry teases, but you never know.
Of course, their fans will go crazy over everything and swear that they are really a couple.
If you believed that Robsten was real (which it was not), you will have no trouble believing that this PR romance is real.
The “couple” has cleared their plates of public significant others, so the romantic scenario will seem very plausible.
Plus, they are good actors and good friends, so faking a romance will not be a totally alien concept to them.
This will start now, continue during filming, slow down a little during post-production, and then ratchet up again before the release in 2016 and before the DVD is released.
Yes, you have a full year of teasing and fake romance ahead.
It will look believable… but you’ll know the truth!
