After more than a year of being photographed together behaving romantically, "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart Wednesday came close to confirming that she and her on-screen leading man, Robert Pattinson, are indeed a couple.

During a cover photo shoot for the November issue of the UK's GQ, Stewart, 21, casually remarked she was hoping to explore England, where she is filming "Snow White and the Huntsman," "because my boyfriend is English." When journalist Jonathan Heaf mentioned this to Stewart the next day at their interview, the star replied, "I never would have said that if I knew you were interviewing me."

Though Heaf noted the relationship is an open secret among fans, Stewart demurred from confirming, saying, "I don't think you realize what a big deal it is for people. Well, it is a big deal. They would be, 'Oh. My. God.' " She did concede, "So much of my life is so easily Googled. I mean, it's like, 'Come on, guys, it's so obvious!' "

She went on to explain, "It's just one of those things. I'm selfish. I'm like, 'That's mine!' And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. . . . I always say to myself I'm never going to give anything away because there's never any point or benefit for me."
