Robert Pattinson spends Christmas with best friend's ex in London pub as Kristen Stewart is with family in LA

Where's Kristen? Robert Pattinson spent Christmas Eve with his best friend Tom Sturridge's ex-girlfriend Nettie in the Sun Inn in Barnes, near his parents' home

They've managed to make their trans-Atlantic relationship work for three years now.

But it appears that at Christmas time, Twilight stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart like to be in their own home towns.

English-born Robert was spotted partying with his best friend's ex-girlfriend on Christmas Eve.

The 25-year-old and actor Tom Sturridge's former love, a woman named Nettie, looked deep in conversation at The Sun Inn, near his parents home in Barnes, southwest London.

He was barely recognisable in the crowded pub, donning a baseball cap, blue shirt and jeans.

Kristen was said to be back in Los Angeles with her parents over the break.

It is the second Christmas in a row the couple have spent apart.

Last year, Rob was spotted at a different London pub while Kristen hung out in LA with her actor friend, Garrett Hedlund.

Moved on: Nettie and The Boat That Rocked actor Tom, who is now dating Sienna Miller, were together for years before splitting up just last year.

Nettie and The Boat That Rocked actor Tom, who is now dating Sienna Miller, were together for years before splitting up just last year.

They went on several double dates with Rob and Kristen and were all spotted together at Tom's sister's wedding reception.

Rob famously refuses to talk about his relationship with Kristen, and it appears Tom lives by the same rules when it comes to his friend.

When asked about Rob in an interview with The Times magazine in October, he said: 'When you agree to be interviewed, it’s an opportunity to review your own moronic-ness.

'It’s okay if I come across as a complete idiot, but it’s not fair for me to describe or refer to anyone else. Anyone can be tainted by my mention of them.'

Although he was quick to praise Kristen this year after filming new movie On the Road with her.

'It was so terrifying entering into that world and what was great was just having someone that I knew and actually working with her. She's just a f****** extraordinary actress, just really, really extraordinary and it's astonishing just to see her do her job.

'It was genuinely, one of the deepest working experiences I've ever had. It was extraordinary.'

The movie will be released next year.

But despite being apart this year, the couple were sure to pick up gifts for each other before Rob left the U.S. for London.

He was last week spotted at LA store, TINI - which stands for This Is Not Ikea - purchasing a vintage movie poster for his girlfriend.

The framed $75 picture, for the 1965 film I, A Woman, stars Swedish actress Essy Persson, who bares a striking resemblance to Kristen.

A source told Hollywood Life: 'Rob stayed for a little over an hour picking out Christmas gifts.

'He kept asking his friend, ‘Do you think Kristen would like this? Rob’s been at TINI’s before. He seems to get a real kick out of all the unique items.'

He apparently also purchased a letter R made out of metal ($115), an antique wooden radio ($395) and a vintage Hollywood headboard for a kingsize bed ($285).

Meanwhile Kristen was spotted shopping at Rob's favorite guitar shop, Norman’s Rare Guitars, with her dad John.

She reportedly picked up a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster and 1947 K&F Lap Steel, worth $12,000.

A source told Us Weekly: 'Kristen knew what she was getting and the people at the store know Rob’s taste because he is a regular customer. So everyone was happy with the results.

'Kristen and her dad were super nice and are always very, very nice people.

The couple will apparently reunite soon, according to reports.

They are expected to spend New Year’s Eve with friends at Rob’s favorite hotel in West Hollywood, the Palihouse Holloway.

The past two years they’ve celebrated New Year’s on the Isle of Wight.
