- At Home
Remember last week, when everyone was busy wondering whether Kristen Stewart had a boob job? Turns out that she was busy cheating on her boyfriend.
In the wake of the shocking revelation that she had an affair with the director of "Snow White and the Huntsman," Stewart has issued a public apology to her longtime boyfriend Robert Pattinson:
"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," she wrote in a statement to People.
Incriminating photos of the 22-year-old actress locked in a steamy embrace with Rupert Sanders, 41, were published by US Weekly this week.
The pictures were allegedly taken on July 17, just a few days before she attended the Teen Choice Awards with Pattinson.
Stewart and Pattinson, 26, met nearly four years ago on the set of the first installment of the Twilight saga. The two quickly became a real-life couple, while at the same time filming the uber-popular love story between their characters Edward (a vampire) and Bella (a human).
But perhaps even worse than the fact that she cheated on Sparkles - a man that millions of teenage girls around the world would give their left arm to stand next to - is that she did it with a married guy.
Sanders is married to actress-model Liberty Ross (who played Stewart's mother in "Snow White and the Huntsman") and the pair have two young children.
Ross tweeted "Wow." just hours before the news of the affair exploded across the Internet. She has since deactivated her Twitter account.
Oh and BTW - Stewart, Sanders and Ross are all supposed to be working together on the forthcoming sequel to "Snow White." So.... that should be pretty awkward.
Ugh. Everything about this makes story makes me unhappy. I wasn't a big K.Stewart fan to begin with, but hooking up with a guy who has a wife and kids is WAY beyond uncool. And shame on him for doing this to his family!
As one of our married male staff members put it (ever so eloquently):
"Every time I even think about creeping up some young girl's skirt, I think to myself... this would ruin everything I love and everything I've built in the last ten years."
