April 29, 2019: Protecting Their Love

Robert spoke about his relationship for the first time in April 2019...sort of. "Do I have to [talk about her]?" he was quoted as saying in The Times. The actor then explained his hesitance to discuss his blonde companion, quipping, "If you let people in, it devalues what love is. If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you’d think it extremely rude. If you put up a wall it ends up better."

Essentially, he said, that wall helps him to stay centered. "I can’t understand how someone can walk down the street holding hands, and it’s the same as when I do it and a hundred people are taking your photo," he continued. "The line between when you’re performing and when you’re not will eventually get washed away and you’ll go completely mad."

"Just seeing that...capturing her attention the entire time..." he trailed off. "Then, like, she just held my hand and just touched it right there [gestures to his cheek] and I could feel a little tear, and I was like, 'No way.'"
