Robert Pattinson asks Kristen Stewart for career advice

Good news for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart fans, because the favorite former couple is once again on speaking terms.

In fact, the pair are not just speaking, RPatz has apparently been reaching out to his ex-girlfriend to ask for career advice.

It has been rumored that Pattinson was being considered for the role of a lifetime, and his manager was in talks for him to nab the role of Christian Grey in the forthcoming film adaptation of the erotic novel by E L James, Fifty Shades of Grey the role has since been awarded to Northern Irish heartthrob Jamie Dornan.

Pattinson was contemplating the role and decided to reach out the Snow White and the Huntsman actress for advice.

KStew reportedly told him he should avoid the film because she believed he was not suited to the role and it would be a "disaster."

A source has revealed to Yahoo! omg! "Kristen told him Fifty Shades [of Grey] would be a disaster for him."

"He's haunted by Twilight and being too identified with that role, taking 'Fifty Shades...' would mean a worse label for the rest of his career."

"Kristen told him that, creatively, he shouldn't do it, but if it's about fame and money, he should. She told him he had to make the choice between the two, but warned that it would stick with him."

Unfortunately, at the moment it does not seem that the former couple are getting back together as five months after their split, the Maps to the Stars actor is still hurt that Stewart cheated on him with married director Rupert Sanders.

Pattinson has been linked to several of his co-stars and Hollywood beauties, but thus far, all of those rumors appear to just be speculation. Perhaps the Twilight co-stars are destined to be together?

However, just because the pair are not back together does not mean they are not on good terms. The source added, "They're good friends and still leaning on each other and talking every day."

"Rob admires Kristen and if she had said 'go for it' he would seriously have swung his heavy schedule around to make it work."
