Honest, it's been 10 years since Twilight came out. Here's where the cast are now.

They say time flies when you’re having fun.

Not sure what you’ve been up to since 2008, but just to let you know, it’s been 10 years since the first Twilight movie came out.

If you were in a teenager of some description in 2008, this would have been a big life moment for you, going to the midnight screening with all your friends to watch Twilight, the 2005 vampire sci-fi romance novel by Stephenie Meyer, come to life on screen.

Despite featuring lots of A-list Hollywood actors, we can all agree the five Twilight films – Twilight, The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (2011) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (2012) – were truly terrible.

But we watched them anyway.

To celebrate a decade having passed (yippee), here’s exactly what the Twilight cast are up to now in 2018.

Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan)

Kristen Stewart was only 18 when Twilight catapulted her into Hollywood.

Stewart now works mostly in the independent film genre, having appeared in Adventureland, Clouds of Sils Maria, Still Alice and Personal Shopper. We'll likely see her next in the upcoming Charlie's Angels re-make.

Stewart and her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson dated from 2009, but split after US Weekly published photos of her having an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in July 2012. Although the co-stars reconciled, they eventually ended their relationship for good in 2013.

The 28-year-old actress now identifies as sexually ambiguous and is currently dating Victoria's Secret model Stella Maxwell. She doesn't appear to have an Instagram account.

Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen)

Was anyone else personally offended when Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward Cullen? Our Edward Cullen.

Sadly, no actor would have ever lived up to our teenage expectations of the pale, shimmery vampire boy with red hair and knowing eyes.

Since Twilight, Pattinson's been in movies like Water for Elephants with Reese Witherspoon, Queen of the Desert and Map of the Stars, and modelled for Dior.

The 32-year-old was most recently engaged to musician FKA Twigs until their engagement was called off in 2017. E! reports he's currently dating British actress and model Suki Waterhouse.

By the looks, he's not on Instagram.

If you were (or still deep down, are) a Twilight fan, you'll have been on one of two teams.

Team Edward or Team Jacob.

Fans watched Taylor Lautner, much like his character Jacob, go from an awkward teenager to a fairly attractive human throughout the five Twilight saga films.

The 26-year-old since played smaller roles in Grown Ups 2, Netflix's The Ridiculous 6 and Scream Queens, where he met his former partner Bille Lourd. Lautner and Lourd were together when her mother and grandmother, actresses Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, suddenly passed away within days of each other.

They split in 2017. According to Instagram, he's now dating a nursing student and influencer who goes by the name of Tay.

Most people knew actress Nikki Reed from the controversial film Thirteen and teen series The OC before seeing her play Edward Cullen's older sister Rosalie in Twilight.

The 30-year-old hasn't acted much since the final Twilight film Breaking Dawn - Part 2 in 2011, but she now runs Bayou With Love, a socially conscious and eco-friendly fashion and accessories label.

After her divorce from American Idol contestant Peter McDonald in 2014, Reed married fellow fictional vampire, Vampire Diaries actor husband Ian Somerhalder, in 2015. In August, 2017, the couple welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Bodhi Soleil.
