Kristen Stewart Defends Robert Pattinson As Batman: 'He’s The Only Guy That Could Play That Part'

When criticism came at the choice of having the next Batman be Robert Pattinson, I was confused, to say the least.

First of all, I'm so sorry to break it to y'all but Batman? Absolutely not real, so let's not get so worked up about this, okay???

You know what *is* real? Robert Pattinson's role as VAMPIRE Edward Cullen in the "Twilight" franchise.

And you know what @h8ters? Vampires and bats have a whole lot in common, mmkay?

So, who is to say the man that played a vampire can't also play a bat???

Well, a lot of people did, actually.

Pattinson faced heavy backlash as the choice of the new Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ upcoming Batman movie, which is RUDE.

But you know who is having NONE of this negativity? Robert's friend and former GF, Kristen Stewart.

During an interview with Variety on the TIFF red carpet this past weekend, Kristen made is very clear she thinks Robert will do ahmazing.

“I feel like he’s the only guy that could play that part,” she admitted.

“I’m so happy for him. It’s crazy. I’m very, very happy about that. I heard that and I was like, ‘Oh man!’ It’s awesome.”

Aw! What a sweet shout out to her ex!
