Kristen Stewart, who sky-rocketed to stardom for her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight series, has found herself in the middle of a cheating scandal.
Stewart, 22, and director Rupert Sanders, 41, were caught in a “marathon make-out session” last week. Sanders is the director of the 2012 movie “Snow White and the Huntsmen,” in which Stewart plays the lead role. A source revealed, “Kristen would go up after every take to Rupert and have a super engrossed conversation, analyzing everything. It was really weird. But it didn’t seem like a romantic thing, at the time.”
Rupert Sanders recently spoke effusively about Stewart’s talents as an actress, stating “there’s something very rebellious about her. She’s very kind of wild and untamed…She’s got a great spirit.”
The actress publicly apologized to long-tome boyfriend Robert Pattinson, issuing this statement: “I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
Sanders also came out with a public apology, specifically mentioning his wife and two young children: “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
Sanders is married to model and actress Liberty Ross, who also appeared in the film Snow White and the Huntsmen, as the mother of Stewart’s character. Sanders and Ross’s two children are Skyla, 7, and Tennyson, 5.
Shortly before news of the scandal broke, Ross tweeted a Marilyn Monroe quote hinting at an impending life-change. “Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” The only word she personally shared via Twitter was a cool, “Wow.”
The successful model, who has worked with the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Burberry and Dior, to name a few, has since deactivated her account.
Friends of Stewart deny that the relationship between her and Sanders was an actual affair. A source told People magazine, “It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn’t have happened. She never meant to hurt anyone. She’s a good person who just made a bad choice.”
Stewart and Pattinson met on set of the first Twilight film in 2008 and have since been notoriously private about their relationship. In 2010 they confirmed their status as a couple.
In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Robert Pattinson expressed his feelings on infidelity. He said, “But there’s a thing I’ve never got: That is, why do people cheat? I can understand the impulse, but not how you can keep two relationships going at the same time for long.”
Universal Pictures announced plans for a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsmen. It is unconfirmed if Rupert Sanders will direct the film, or if Stewart will resume her role.
