Kristen Stewart, most notable known for playing Bella in the “Twilight” series has apologized after photos of her kissing Rupert Sanders were revealed.
Stewart worked with her then director on the set of “Snow White and the Huntsman” which recently debuted in theaters this June.
These photos circulated across the internet immediately raising many speculations of a touted affair.
The affair was confirmed with Stewart and Sanders apologies to their significant others.
The actress is said to be “devastated” and admits the affair was a “mistake and a complete lapse in judgement,” a source told People.
“She wasn’t having an affair with Rupert. 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 has a high-profile relationship with Robert Pattinson whom she also had a working relationship on the set of her famous vampire movie.
Rupert has since then apologized to his actress/model wife Liberty Ross for his indiscretion. He states that he still loves his wife and his children and is “utterly distraught” with the pain he has caused them.
While Rupert and Stewart have yet to make an official comment, the directors wife Liberty Ross took to twitter shortly after the news broke.
“Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
Adding soon after: “If you find it in your heart to care for somebody else, you will have succeeded.”
Will Scandal Hurt Box Office Take?
Some experts predict that the recent cheating scandal will not hurt the final installment of the Twilight franchise when it hits theaters later this year.
“It could make her actually more alluring,” said Ian Drew, a senior editor at Us Weekly magazine, which features compromising photos of Stewart and her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders in its latest issue, out Friday. “It’s not like Sally Field did this, so it could actually enhance her appeal and make her even bigger.”
“The fans are so romantically tied to this movie in both the real-life romance and the on-screen romance, so I’m sure this is hitting them pretty hard,” said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Hollywood.com. “They think of Bella and Edward and Kristen and Rob like family — characters they absolutely love on screen and in real life. For a 14-year-old girl, this is probably heartbreaking. But are girls not going to see the movie because of this? Heck no.”
