July 31, 2014 03:38:47 GMT


Robert Pattinson doesn't hold grudge although Kristen Stewart cheated on him back in 2012 when they were still dating. "S**t happens, you know?" the British actor tells Esquire U.K. with a laugh when asked about his split with his "Twilight" co-star following her cheating scandal with director Rupert Sanders, who was married to Liberty Ross at the time. "It's just young people... it's normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t?"

The Cedric Diggory of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire", however, admits that facing questions about the affair was tough. "The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict," he says. "It's like that scene in 'Doubt' [2008, in which Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a priest suspected of inappropriate behaviour], where he's talking about how to take back gossip? They throw all those feathers from a pillow into the sky and you've got to go and collect all the feathers."
