Washington: Actor Kristen Stewart and screenwriter Dylan Meyer are engaged. The ‘Twilight’ actor and the screenwriter put a ring on it after dating for nearly two years. Stewart shared the news of her engagement to Howard Stern on Tuesday’s episode of SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, reported People magazine.
“We’re marrying, we’re totally gonna do it,” Stewart told Howard Stern. “I wanted to be proposed to, so I think I very distinctly carved out what I wanted and she nailed it. It was really cute, she did very well. We’re marrying, it’s happening,” said the actor, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Spencer’.
She said Meyer “wasn’t specific at all” with her proposal, adding, “It’s not a given that I would be the one. You know what I mean? With two girls, you never know who’s going to fulfill what weird f—ing gender role thing. We don’t do that or think about it in those terms. She just grabbed that bowl and made it happen. It was f—ing so cute.”
Stewart’s hopes that the wedding would be a relaxed, intimate ceremony in her and her fiance’s hometown.
“I want to stay home. I want to be in L.A. so everyone can come, and … I want it to be pretty chill. I don’t want anyone walking anyone down any aisles. Like, we’re just gonna stand, do vows.”
As per People magazine, Meyer and Stewart have been linked since 2019 and went Instagram official in October of that year. At the time, Meyer posted a black-and-white snap of herself and Stewart kissing to confirm their relationship, writing in the caption, “Find me under the covers hiding from the happiness police.”
While they started dating two years ago, Stewart and Meyer first met much earlier.
The couple was initially introduced on the set of a film and reconnected six years later, the actor explained to Stern during a 2019 interview. “The day that I met her, it was like all bets were off,” she said, adding, “I met her years ago on a movie and I hadn’t seen her in six years, and then she rocked up at a friend’s birthday party, and I was like, `Where have you been, and how have I not known you?` She’s been living in L.A. alongside my life somehow but not ever converging.”
Meyer and Stewart got together shortly after Stewart split from model Stella Maxwell, whom she dated from 2016 to 2018 before the pair briefly reconciled in 2019. Stewart was previously in high-profile relationships with Michael Angarano and Robert Pattinson as well as musician St. Vincent and visual effects producer Alicia Cargile.
It’s no surprise Stewart met her future fiance on the set of a film — while Stewart has made a name for herself as an actor, Meyer works behind the scenes as a screenwriter.
Her writing credits include Netflix’s ‘Moxie’, the short ‘Rock Bottom’, TV series ‘Miss 2059’ and the film ‘XOXO’. Meyer has also acted in a few projects, including a recent appearance alongside Stewart in the TV series ‘Homemade’.
