Robert Pattinson is reportedly happy that former girlfriend, American actress Kristen Stewart has found love again. The Twilight actress recently had opened up about her girlfriend, Alicia Cargile.

According to a report in Hollywood Life, the British actor is proud of the Equals star. A source said: "Things are making a whole lot more sense to Rob now with Kristen's reveal about the relationship they had. He really appreciates her and just would like her to be happy and that is what it looks like to him. If she is happy, he is happy. It is as simple as that!"

During an interview with Elle UK, Stewart who is notoriously private about her life had talked about her dating life. She said: "When I was dating a guy I was hiding everything that I did because everything personal felt like it was immediately trivialised, so I didn't like it. We were turned into these characters and placed into this ridiculous comic book, and I was like, 'That's mine. You're making my relationship something that it's not.' I didn't like that. But then it changed when I started dating a girl. I was like, 'Actually, to hide this provides the implication that I'm not down with it or I'm ashamed of it, so I had to alter how I approached being in public. It opened my life up and I'm so much happier."
