The actress appeared on the Howard Stern Show and told the host the constant hounding from the paparazzi negatively impacted her relationship with her co-star.

She called Pattinson her "first love", and hit back at rumours the relationship was fake.

"I don't know," she laughed. "I wanted to..."

In 2013 their relationship ended following Stewart's admission she cheated on Pattinson with Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

Stewart is rumoured to be dating Dylan Meyer after she split with model Stella Maxwell.

The TV host asked if she was currently in love.

"Yeah...the answer is yes,". She also told Stern she "absolutely" plans to propose.
