The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Kristen Stewart was outed this week for cheating on her long-time boyfriend and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. The 22-year-old actress was reportedly caught by paparazzi cameras on July 17 in a compromising position with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, 41, who’s been married for 7 years to model/actress Liberty Ross. The photos, which were published in Us magazine, are already online and in a surprising move, Stewart immediately came forward to admit her indiscretion, issuing a public apology, as has Sanders.

What amazes me about this situation is that the scenario played out like an episode of Courteney Cox’s former gossip drama Dirt, including a bidding war for the photos among several major magazines (Us Magazine got the scoop). From what I can tell, the photos show Sanders hugging Stewart from behind, as well as the two of them kissing in a car.

Considering KStew and RPatz are both young, famous, good-looking, and successful, it was obvious that the romance wouldn’t last forever, but I at least expected it to hold out until the final Twilight film (Breaking Dawn: Part 2, coming to theaters this November) was out on Blu-ray. This incident makes me wonder: Did Kristen Stewart’s cheating on Robert Pattinson just ruin the Twilight franchise?

Twilight - Kristen Stewart and Robert PattinsonWhen I offhandedly mentioned to my teenage Team Edward niece yesterday, “Hey, did you hear that Kristen Stewart was caught cheating on Robert Pattinson?” she screamed so loud I had to cover my ears. That made me realize that not only did Stewart just humiliate the already emasculated Pattinson (who’s forever typecast as a wimpy vampire), she just severely pissed off a ton of girls out there who’ll never forgive her for breaking their man’s heart. Seriously, do you remember the fans’ reactions when in the Twilight series Bella [SPOILERS] kinda sorta had feelings for Jacob and even kissed him? That bitch!!! Yeah, it was vicious and that was for FICTIONAL characters.

But, this is real life now and poor RPatz just got cheated on – you know how many women out there are saying, “How could you cheat on Robert Pattinson?!” and “I’d never cheat on him if he was MY boyfriend!!!” Meanwhile, had it been Pattinson doing the cheating, yeah, some fans would feel bad for Stewart, but most would probably tweet about how they now have a chance with him (like they’re doing now!).

So, has Kristen Stewart’s actions just completely ruined the final Twilight film for the fans and effectively ended the franchise’s winning box office streak? I’m thinking, yeah. Why? Because Stewart just destroyed the illusion.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

Since the first movie came out in 2008, Twilight fans have believed that Stewart IS Bella and Pattinson IS Edward. The actors solidified this belief by starting up an off-screen relationship. Non-fans suspected in the beginning that the relationship, which the actors poorly tried to hide, was a mere publicity stunt. But for years, the couple avoided talking about their relationship in interviews and took measures to not being seen together outside of their Twilight publicity obligations. Eventually, the couple moved in together, were seen kissing and holding hands in public and at events, and started referring each other romantically in interviews. The 26-year-old Pattinson even broached the subject of marriage recently. So, this was either true love or the longest-running publicity stunt in history. Just when the two seemed destined to be together forever – just like Bella and Edward! – BAM!, Stewart is caught in the arms of a much-older married man.

Like I mentioned, Stewart issued an apology immediately, via People:

“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,” Stewart said in a statement Wednesday.

Sanders, who has two young children with Ross, also issued an apology. His 33-year-old wife, who played Stewart’s mother in Snow White and the Huntsman, deleted her Facebook and Twitter accounts after tweeting on July 24 “Wow” and retweeting a Marilyn Monroe quote from the Women of History account, “Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” Pattinson has not commented on the situation.

While the photos show Stewart and Sanders cozying up, in her public apology, Stewart referred to the situation as a “momentary indiscretion” and sources close to the actress said it was a “brief fling,” not a long-term affair and that nothing happened between them on set of Snow White and the Huntsman. (See one of the incriminating photos below of Stewart with Sanders from Us Magazine via Oh No They Didn’t.)

But will Stewart’s apology be enough for the fans? Will RPatz forgive her? Maybe he can, but let’s face it, the fans never will. I can’t see anything that Stewart can do at this point (or ever) to prevent the Twilight fans from hating her, not to mention that the Breaking Dawn: Part 2 press tour is gonna be real awkward, if the two of them participate at all. Even if he does forgive her and they stay together, how will these fans look back at the previous films now? I would think fans would feel like the movies are tainted, especially Breaking Dawn: Part 1 where Bella and Edward get married, consummate their union, and have a baby. In that film, Edward also finally concedes to Bella’s wishes to have him turn her into a vampire, thereby assuring that they will be together FOREVER!!!

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1

For years, Stewart and Pattinson kept their romance under wraps, perhaps because they didn’t know if it would turn serious and maybe they were keeping it light in the beginning on purpose. But after 3 years together and then sharing a home in LA, they obviously thought it was going somewhere, even though, Stewart began the relationship when she was still a teenager. Chances are it lasted this long because they’ve spent the last few years working so closely and have a rabid fanbase that expected them to really be together. And hell, I’m guessing their handlers were thinking all that speculation about their romance was really great for their careers, although I would think someone at the studio (initially Summit Entertainment, now taken over by Lionsgate) would have said, “Hey, you know, if this relationship doesn’t work out, it could spell disaster,” and that’s just taking into consideration that the actors would have to work together again and have intimate scenes in subsequent movies. But one of them getting caught in public cheating on the other – oh, the scandal!

Now, in Hollywood, scandal isn’t always a bad thing, and you know what they say, any publicity is good publicity, but sorry, I’m thinking, no, not in this case. I think Kristen Stewart just screwed this franchise up real good, and even if Pattinson does forgive her, I don’t feel like the fans ever will. I suspect the fans will be lining up to throw eggs at her at the premiere for Breaking Dawn: Part 2. Remember back in June when Summit said The Twilight Saga will not be rebooted? You may want to rethink that one, Summit.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 1

I’m sure a lot of people are going to ask WHY am I covering this news (just like they’ve asked every time we publish a Twilight article over the last 5 years). I mean, people in Hollywood cheat all the time, couples get divorced, etc. It’s the norm, right? But how often does infidelity between actors in a relationship actually threaten to harm the films they work on? Not often. Let’s take a look…

— Even though it was obvious that Brad Pitt cheated on his then-wife Jennifer Aniston with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, he suffered very little backlash and it actually piqued moviegoers’ curiosity about their film, the very set on which they fell in love.

— Hugh Grant gets caught with a prostitute when he was with Elizabeth Hurley; gets slap on the wrist (and some police handcuffs), gives a public apology, and the handsome actor becomes one of Bridget Jones’ love interests.

— Jude Law and his children’s nanny when he was with Sienna Miller? No biggie, Law gets cast as Dr. Watson co-starring with Robert Downey, Jr. in Sherlock Holmes mega-film franchise.

Yet Kristen Stewart will undoubtedly be made to wear the scarlet letter (even though she’s not married, although Sanders is) and, like I said, will probably get some eggs thrown at her. Is it because she’s a woman that she’ll suffer the kind of backlash that people like Brad Pitt and Jude Law escaped?

There’s a good chance the Twilight fanbase will abandon her to the point where she’ll never be nominated again for an MTV Movie Award or Teen Choice Award and any other Huntsman-type movie she tries to do won’t have the benefit of the massive Twilight fanbase behind it anymore. But hey, maybe that’s what she wanted. (Why else is she making out in public with someone other than her boyfriend?!) Let’s not forget that Stewart comes from an indie movie background and that’s really where her interests lie. She’s said many times in interviews that she doesn’t want to be typecast and that she hopes to go on to have a long film career with challenging roles.

Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders Snow White and the Huntsman

I covered the very first Twilight panel at San Diego Comic-Con back in 2008, where I unknowingly was sitting in the middle of a fan frenzy so fierce it made that Beatles concert at Shea Stadium seem quiet. It was the first day of the Con and its first panel in Hall H and I got there early to make sure I was there for the rest of the day’s panels (I think I was waiting to see the panel for the The Day The Earth Stood Still remake). While I had previously covered Twilight casting news, I really didn’t grasp the popularity of the franchise. I basically knew they were vampire books my nieces had read and that they were making a movie with the Cedric kid from Harry Potter and the girl who played Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room. In my panel coverage, I wrote “I’m currently sitting in a large hall with thousands of screaming “” and I mean screaming “” Twilight fans”¦” wondering in disbelief how I could have not known about the intensity of this fanbase. After that, I’ve covered every Twilight panel at Comic-Con and other conventions, with the level of fan intensity increasing each year (see our photos of the San Diego Comic-Con panels from 2009 and 2011 here below). Stewart and Pattinson appeared together at this year’s SDCC for the Breaking Dawn: Part 2 panel (check out our panel coverage, which includes lots of photos of the twosome and fellow castmembers, here).

SDCC 2009: Twilight: New Moon panel

I might not be a Twilight fan, but I’m not a hater. I did read the books and I have watched this franchise morph into the massive sensation it is today. I’ve also watched Stewart and Pattinson, two young actors, go from being little-known bit players to megastars in just a matter of a few years, and from what I can tell, they were not ready for this type of stardom, nor do I think they expected this level of intensity and expectation from the fans. While I’m not crushed by this news or shocked to hear that someone in Hollywood was unfaithful, I am surprised that after all these years, this is how the franchise will come to a close, tainted basically by what just happened. An indiscretion like this from nearly any other actor would make headlines for a few days, and then people would forget it, and the actor would move on and continue to make movies without having to answer for their infidelity over and over again. In this case, while Stewart will go on to make more movies and average moviegoers will forget her recent deeds in a few days, her actions will most likely have severe consequences for the Twilight franchise.

Ok, so you’ve heard my opinion, now let’s hear from you: Has Kristen Stewart’s cheating on Robert Pattinson effectively ruined the Twilight franchise for its fans? If you’re a Twilight hater, I think we already know how you feel; but if you’re a Twilight fan, how do you feel about the situation? Can you forgive KStew for her “momentary discretion”? Will her actions affect your enjoyment of the film, including the upcoming final installment?

  1. Eve, I’m saddened at the lack of reference to Kevin Smith’s advice to Rob Pattinson at SDCC 09…

  2. I didn’t like Kristens acting anyways. However, that is the only reason I really liked Twilight. So in saying that I’m not sure if Ill invest in the last half of the movie . Robert and Kristens romance is the only reason why I watched the rest of them, but she had to be a bitch and screw him over. Thanks Kristen! Your acting was already shit and now your a bitch too!

    Comment by Beckyfld — July 26, 2012 @ 1:01 pm

  3. I love Twilight and I love Rob and Kristen as a couple and as actors. I think this is their personal business and it’s their lives. I hope they can work things out, everybody is human and we all make mistakes, so best of luck guys and I still love Twilight!

    Comment by Mrs. E — July 26, 2012 @ 1:02 pm

  4. As long as they’re back together Idc about the little stepping out she did. but as a TRUE fan I still will continue to love te saga and i STILL am going to watch the next BD part 2. That’s edward and bella whom Im watching.

    Comment by ♥Torii.com♥ — July 26, 2012 @ 1:29 pm

  5. I think robert should forgive Kristen and give her another chance because she knows that she has done wrong and she admits that. And at least she admitted it and didn’t just deny it like most people do. So i think Robert should forgive Kristen because Kristen has said that she love him so much and she is truly and very sorry. So Robert i think you should give her a second chance you are perfect for each other and you are both gorgeous. So i think you should get back together because no of us want to see you two break up and Robert i don’t think you want to let Kristen go and if you don’t go and get her and give her a second chance and do it for the fans and yourself because we would never want to see your relationship to end. Robert i hope you take this into account and give her a second chance.

  6. I don’t think it’ll hurt the franchise. Won’t the ladies want to show their love and support for RPatz?

    Comment by oldlady — July 26, 2012 @ 1:51 pm

  7. Im sad to see she hurt Rob like this, but I really hope they can work through this. Everybody makes mistakes and deserves a second chance. I will stand by her and hope she just learns from her mistake, and I hope that Rob can forgive her.

    Comment by Totalbrat85 — July 26, 2012 @ 1:04 pm

  8. I LOVE TWILIGHT!! And as a true fan i will most definitely watch part 2!! I do think robert should give kristen a second chance she’s only human and make’s mistake’s but she has already said she is very sorry and love’s him! I hope they work things out they look sooo cute together!!

    Comment by chell — July 26, 2012 @ 2:25 pm

  9. The reason this is sad is because of the manner it which it was done. The two lived together and by all measures, Rob seemed like a guy who was good to her. Probably to good. She did make a mistake, one she is going to look back and regret. It is hard not to associate Bella and Edward with Kristen and Rob. The only thing is for their lives, those are characters they play. It is fantasy, maybe to much of a fantasy. She should have broke up with first though, if you really love someone, you respect them enough not to blindside them in this manner. She is only twenty-two, she will learn sooner than later the impact this will have on her life.

    Comment by Shannon — July 26, 2012 @ 2:55 pm

  10. Whilst I am absolutely shocked at these events, i feel that Rob will forgive Kristen. Should he? Hmmmmmmm, i kinda think so, yeah.  We all make mistakes, she is young, she chased a bit of excitement and thought in her naive brain no-one would ever find out….doh!  I love Rob & Kristen as a couple and as actors, i definitely agree that this will have some impact on the franchise, but hopefully ‘true’ Twilight fans will still be able to watch BD2 with a happy heart, i’m gonna try!  Best of luck to both of them, don’t let her off easy though Rob, make her work for it and PROVE she deserves you.

    Comment by Floweryfaye — July 26, 2012 @ 3:14 pm

  11. I’m a huge Team Edward fan but I’m not angry at Kristen. Everyone makes mistakes and I really hope Rob can forgive her, though I’d understand if he chose not to. I believe that they both really love each other and that they both could get past this. I hope that the Twilight Franchise ends up ok and ppl don’t get too mad at Kristen. Please learn to forgive, people! Forgive Kristen, move on with your life and WATCH BREAKING DAWN PART 2. Even if you are mad at her, don’t let it affect the Franchise! Many other people, from other actors to the director to many others, worked hard to it successful, so, for them, PLEASE WATCH BREAKING DAWN PART 2. Please, if you’re a true Twilight fan then you should be loyal enough to do that. The thing I’d like to say is for Sanders and his family. I truly do hope that they can get past this too. They deserve to heal (hopefully soon) just like Rob and Kristen. I hope you all will try to listen to me on what I said about the Franchise.

  12. Kristen Stewart is a great person who just made a mistake and you’re being (and probably before now) too judgemental and mean. Calling her a bitch and saying her acting is shit won’t change things but will follow an endless cycle of hurting people which makes you no better than Kristen or anyone who as ever hurt you. Care about and treat others as you wish they’d treat you or you’ll be another person who hurts people. You probably don’t like me saying all of this but oh well.

    Comment by Sami Misaki Caprella — July 26, 2012 @ 4:39 pm

  13. I don’t like cheating and I don’t understand why people do it. But like others have said, they are a really good couple and I hope they do get back together. BUt I also hope Rob makes his own decision and doesn’t base it off what the fans want. I hope he thinks about if he can stand her now and if he can forgive her, great. If not, I hope he’s good with that. As for affecting the franchise… I don’t know. I am a fan, but not a crazy obsessed ‘I LOVE YOU TWILIGHT!!!’ kind of fan. I’ll watch the movie because I like the books. But for people who are the crazy obssesed fans, they might not. One of the best things about the films is that you can see the connection and love they have for each other. Maybe now that this has happened people won’t wnt to watch it because that’s all they will be able to think about. But I will watch the movie and I hope they will get back together, but I understand any decision Rob makes.

  14. this is not going to stop me from seeing and enjoying the final film.. But as we know the real Bella would never cheat on Edward it affects my liking of the series none… but seriously your dating RPatz what more could  you want….

    Comment by kittyibarra — July 26, 2012 @ 3:48 pm

  15. I am a huge Twilight fan and I hated to hear about Rob and Kristen, but she is human people and she made a mistake. I think they genuinely love each other and will work this out at least I hope so. But please fans separate the characters from the real people and what she has done should in no way hurt the franchise. I will still watch all the movies and support the upcoming movie.
    Check out my story “Can’t Buy Happiness”  at Fanfiction.net under author name edwardforever2. For real Twilight fans it’s a Bella and Edward story! Also if you are a real fan, then stay loyal!

    Comment by Edwardforever2 — July 26, 2012 @ 6:09 pm

  16. i am so disgusted. But let’s not forget that it takes to cheat. Kristen did cheat but so did sanders and he was married! Kristen made a very public apology and i think we shouldn’t avoid the last Twilight movie just because of her mistakes.Think of all the hard work that was put into the movie by all of the crew they would be very disappointed that we Twihards are not as faithful as we say we are! So I am going to focus on Edward and Bella and not these people I don’t even know.Because i love twilight for the way stephanie meyer wrote it!                                

    Comment by Isabella zweifel — July 26, 2012 @ 6:17 pm

  17. Why cheat??? If she was so bored with him why not just break up with him.?? I think that she got to ungrateful and thought the grass was greener on the other side just sayin!! I don’t think she’s a bad person but I do think she’s a home wrecker and a slut!!!

  19. I know that Rob is far more intelligent, passionate and talented to be witn her…. She will regret her actions forever….. Selfish girl. I will see BD II as I am an eternal fan of the love story and of Robert Pattinson.

  20. Il est plus intelligent, talentueux et passionné qu’elle et je crois qu’elle à fait le plus grand erreur que sa vie….. Je vais voir le film à cause de Rob et son rôle comme Edward- il est simplement incroyable.

  23. I hated her from the beginning and now I really hate her. First of all, what kind of actor only has one facial expression?  I’ve never seen someone with so little ability to express any type of emotion.  I wish they had picked another Twilight girl but now that what’s done is done, fans will certainly see the movie, however, this may certainly damage her career in the future. 

    Comment by Suggargurl — July 26, 2012 @ 9:21 pm

  24. WTF-word? Nobody even cares that she just wrecked a marriage. The director had a wife and 2 kids and it sounds like his wife is definitely not forgiving him for this, why should Edward forgive Bella? He can get waaay hotter chicks than that who might actually be faithful to him, at least they wouldn’t cheat on him with a 41 yr. old! LOL! And no, there’s no way this will hurt Twilight at the box office, because most of the fans are brainless sheep that follow the herd into theaters. 

    Comment by SuperDan4 — July 26, 2012 @ 9:29 pm

  25. I personally don’t give a rat’s ass about the Twilight franchise myself or their relationship but nonetheless, I feel for Robert Pattison himself as what she did was low. It’s bad enough that she cheated but to do it with a married man with kids makes it worst-even though the director was at much fault as she was for betraying the trust of his wife and kids. Not only was what she did morally wrong and selfish, it was also stupid as she had the love and fame of many youths but now she is going to be seen as another cliche Hollywood skank and homewrecker. Plus, she sounds more sorry that she got caught rather than for what she did.

    Comment by Dragonseyex — July 26, 2012 @ 11:55 pm

  26. That would make sense if she was genuinely sorry for her actions which she doesn’t appear to be. She and that douchebag director sound more sorry that they got caught than anything else. I hope Rob and that guy’s wife kick them to the curb and find other people. They’re both idiots overall.

    Comment by Dragonseyex — July 26, 2012 @ 10:57 pm

  27. Man I’m not going to see Breaking Dawn part 2 like you just said it ruined the illusion. If I went I’ll probably be insulting her throughout the movie and I hope Robert moves on and I wish him the best.

    Comment by Marie — July 26, 2012 @ 10:59 pm

  28. It won’t be the same watching the last movie.  Right now I’m not sure I could even re-watch the first four.  Can’t believe she was so incredibly stupid.  

    I feel really bad for Rob but I’m sure he is getting the support he needs from his family and friends.  It’s going to be tough but he’ll get through this.  

    Comment by Mommabear43 — July 26, 2012 @ 11:01 pm

  29. they only people that are hurting from this are rob, sanders wife, and their kids. since kirsten is sooooo private, i find it funny that she would cheat in the middle of day outside, and in her car. she knew they would eventually get caught. the director is scum, and she isn’t any better.

    Comment by joke — July 26, 2012 @ 11:03 pm

  30. I have read all the books of the twilight saga and adore them…I have seen all the movies…and thought not bad at all, but now…don’t think I will waste my money on seeing the last installment…just don’t feel right anymore. 

    Comment by Tinaraikes — July 27, 2012 @ 6:47 am

  31. The bad thing is being a celeb, the whole world knows about it.  I knw you have to wonder if the whole world didn’t find out, would she have apologized?  She
    didn’t need to aplogize to the whole world though, just Robert and the director’s family.  She blew it big time and who knows if Robert will take her
    back.  I still think it’s time for the Twilight movies to end.

    Comment by Dee Jamacek — July 27, 2012 @ 12:33 pm

  32. I find it hard to believe that their romance was a PR stunt, who would do that for that long? Nor do I think that this fling was a PR stunt to either break up with Rob or to change her image, her movies outside Twilight have shown that. I cant believe that a Studio would be behind something like this, that is so harmful to all involved. I agree that the many fans wont forgive this, its too wrong!! Im sure Stephanie Myers is in shock. In one article someone suggested that All parties were involved, including Sanders children, why would Sanders wife, children(who are too young) and Rob, let alone Rupert and Kristen agree to this? Money? God I hope not. I am surprised by the PDA out in the open like that when its been said that she is so private. If you want to get caught at something bad, take drugs, smoke pot, get drunk and cause a scene. Dont get involved with a married man(even if his marrige is shakey). Even Lindsay Lohan didnt do that. I also the public appolgy. The timing of this is bad also. Now if  Rob takes her back he will look like a weak man and if he doesnt then the promotional stuff will be strange. If the studios make him “forgive her” so that they act like they are together until Nov. will be sad also. If all this was a PR stunt by the studios then shame on them!!  The whole thing just seems so strange and sad.

  33. To continue, if I saw my husband in pics like that, going on twitter would not be the FIRST thing I would do!! And Its just so stupid to do it in public, Its like it was a scene from a bad movie or something.There are no winners here,well except for the guy who took the pictures. Im sure he was paid millions for them and it is beyond sad to make money off the pain of others and to ruin families and prob not care at all. Yes they were stupid to do it but really its sad this is the kind of world we live in. He should have to explain to his children when they are older and tell them he prob ruined their family for money.  Sanders should have been smarter, HE is the one who is married, older and had more to loose. His movie career was just starting, I think he can kiss the sequill goodbye. She on the other hand is not married (yet in a commited relationship so that does make it wrong).It all just seems like a set up or something. She is private about her life which I felt was very smart, mature, not giving anything away because its no ones business, and then this, really, so out of the character she has been so far.

    Comment by nena — July 27, 2012 @ 3:25 pm

  34. so you think they should stay together because you dont want to see them break up?! who’s in this relationship anyways?! and how could she deny it; there are photos of her mackin’ down with the guy. she says she loves rob but clearly her actions say otherwise. every time she touched this dude, she was not only NOT loving rob, but essentially saying ”screw rob, i want this guy right now.” yeah she’s young and stupid as we all might have been but should excuse her in any way? no

    Comment by Jennachough — July 27, 2012 @ 9:19 pm

  35.  Agree totally. And i don’t believe its wrecked the franchise. I also hope Rob can forgive her, and that the fans that are wanting to support both of them seperatately and as a couple respect his wishes for no one to take sides as its clear his love still runs deep despite the hurt

    Comment by Emma — July 28, 2012 @ 7:57 am

  36. It is a complete shame that such a thoughtless act could be committed by someone who prides herself on being considered intelligent. She not only has let Robert Pattinson down, but all of the Twilight cast, the studio, her fan base ( which is why she is such a highly paid actress – she is not that accomplished yet with her acting abilities) and countless others. The other party, the until now – unknown director, probably will get blacklisted for what he has so irresponsibly done. To get involved with your leading lady when you are married, she is in a high profile relationship and in a very expensive film franchise – well, he is poison.  Unfortunately they  both have asked for it and yes, the Twilight movies will never have the same popularity again.

Her actions will definitely cause people not to see the last movie.  I loved these movies, but not sure if I really want to watch them now, leaves a bad taste.   Sours the fans to think she acted so badly and non caring.   She has growing up to do and was acting like a school girl…and threw caution to the wind. This was something someone alot younger would do.  She has been in long relationships for her age and has not seemed to grow up completely.  She may act mature at times but she really is not. Remember, the  brain does not mature until about age 25 and most do not know consequences until after that age.  I think she wants her relationship with Robert but she also wanted some excitement.  We were all that age at one time and its easy for the normal person let alone for someone with every advantage and temptation all around 24/7.  Sounds like she needs some guidance and counseling.  He should give her another chance if that is what they both want but not without some reality checks and consequences. It takes a long time to win trust back, but it can be done.

  40. After reading some other posts, this did seem like some type of setup…Maybe Rupert, who comes across as a real sleeze (being over 40) wanted some more attention for his career. Sounds like he had a crush on this 22 year old and set out to ruin things.

  42. Uhh.. yeah. But who cares EVERY actors and actresses cheats on one another. but I LOVE How everyone hates kristen stewart. But what about Rupert? The man who doesn’t give a shit. AT LEAST Kristen Stewart had the heart to apologized to everyone Rupert, Liberty and Rob (Who is ugly as fuck, I would’ve cheated with him to) But RUPERT who only apologized to wife and “Said there now can everyone shut up?” And left it like that. HES a total fuck head. Kristen Stewart may cheated By kissing him. You guys are acting like they slept together u.u.  Rupert is a dog. If He LOVED his wife as he claimed, he would’ve pushed stewart aside. BUT HE DIDN’T. So fuck him. I still and always WILL BE a fucking kristen stewart fan and Rob you cheated on KSTEW before so stop acting like  your world is over. IF you LOVE her ENOUGH then go get your ‘woman’ love her and make sure that NO ONE can have her

    Damn press asshole making this a bloody big deal, woman 18 years and up are having sex with 50 years old men, Why isn’t this on the fucking cover? Its just because of that twilight bullshit “Twihards”
     But half of you calling Kstew a slut, whore and bitch and sending her death threats are fucking pathetic and rude.You guys are not twihards you guys are phycotic buttholes

  43. I do too but, SHE HURT MY BABY! I will always stand by their relationship and i hope he does but if it does not make him happy then i am sad to say to end it. All that matters right now is HIS happiness. She has had to much time to tell him before she got caught.

  44. But your just hurt. And calling her either of those names is calling her a bad person. I love her but, in the end i love rob more…

    Comment by Amari Atterberry — July 30, 2012 @ 12:51 am

  45. Actually, If you dont respect the movies then why are you sitting here talking about it. Because there are people who love these movies hurt. And of course it will because to be honest i cried when i found this out. Im a teenage team edward fan and follow rob every movie. This actually makes me angry. I am in pain. I screamed. I broke things. You dont like twilight fine but dont sit there and hate on it! I think what Kristen did was wrong but still you don’t hear me calling her mean names, ugly, and stuff! Have a heart!

    Comment by Amari Atterberry — July 30, 2012 @ 1:00 am

  46. I do too. She hurt him bad. She hurt US bad. But, i forgive her. She knows its wrong and because of that she doesn’t deserve the verbal abuse or the countless haters.

    Comment by Amari Atterberry — July 30, 2012 @ 1:04 am

  47. Ok. Here’s my two cents.

    I think it is a sad case that people are even contemplating the “end of a franchise” because of her indiscretion. I have not felt the full force (and I might — depending on how fans take my comments) of the TwiHards as I believe they are called. But I do understand the power of the fan when there is the perceived destruction of all that they hold true and dear. 

    As my user name suggests, I’m a big Star Wars fan. Yes, I was part of the fervor regarding GL’s Special Editions, particularly the “Han Shot First” movement (which to this day, I argue– HE DID!!!! :0}). In the long run, though, while it did feel my memory of the originals was tarnished, that was only because I agreed to let that memory be tarnished. My point is: you either love something — regardless how it changes as time goes by — or you never truly loved it in the first place.

    I am still a rabid SW fan — and I always will be — regardless of how that franchise changes over the years. The real tragedy in this scenario is the unequal treatment “KStew” is getting by her fans!!! Yes the media is blowing things out of proportion — that’s kinda their job. But if you are a fan of some intellectual property, be a fan. It just people doing these amazing things that feed our imaginations. These people will eventually fail us as fans. The fact that they are humans and are prone to making mistakes like the rest of us should have ZERO bearing on whether or not we like — or continue to like — something they have already done.

    Harrison Ford, in an interview, basically said he did not like the character of Han Solo. (Before you get in a tizzy, I realize it is not the same as destroying the illusion of two romantically involved characters.) For a lot of fans, that was basically having your hero say that the character is worthless.

    At the end of the day, Bella and Edward (or Jacob) and Han Solo are just fictional characters that happen to be played by real life people that we emotionally attach to those roles. What those real-life people do does not diminish what those characters stand for in our imaginations. Dislike “KStew” for her “moment of indiscretion”, but keep your love for Bella and Edward. You’ll remember that a lot longer anyway….

    Comment by LIL-TAY — July 31, 2012 @ 9:23 am

  50. Ok get real everyone. I am a huge twilight fan but no loyalty to any of the characters. I don’t care about their personal lives and I don’t think one guys nerve reacting the way she did is a forecast of twilight franchise being ruined. Get a grip ladies.

    Comment by Marinamanafi — July 31, 2012 @ 7:38 pm

  51. No because Kristen S. is NOT Bella Swan shes just an actor, not the real thing.

    Comment by Cassyngraham — August 1, 2012 @ 8:05 pm

  52. I Would Have Just Stayed With Rob.. Because That Guy Is Old! And Sort Of Ugly. Why Older Men?

    Comment by Kitty032102 — August 3, 2012 @ 2:32 am

  53. i think that rob should not dump her beacuase they make movies and make the world happy when there together and no mater what they do they will always be my #1 favirote celebrity 

    Comment by Austinsuarez2002 — August 3, 2012 @ 10:03 am

  54. i dont want them to break-up beacuse they are great actors and make great movies and every time they are together they make the world happy

    Comment by Austinsuarez2002 — August 3, 2012 @ 10:14 am

  55. Honestly I’ll be a hard core fan still but I don’t think I could ever forgive Kristen and I don’t think Rob will either. I’m a team Jacob but I still find Rob attractive and in comparison I don’t see why she cheated on him with some 40 year old who looks like that he isn’t cute where as Rob is. But as I was saying for me it won’t ruin the movie franchise so much as it will ruin the magic that I know Rob and Kristen had being that they kinda made an amazing couple to begin with, but hey maybe I’m biased.

    Comment by Dionna Noel Robinson — September 4, 2012 @ 3:51 am

  56. I’m a big twilight fan and it didn’t ruin the franchise for me at all. Why should it? I still like Kristen (and her acting), I just didn’t like her decision. But it is hard to look in on the situation because you can’t read her mind. If Robert accepted her why can’t the fans? Why should people even care about their personal lives?
    The movie was filmed long before this incident happened and doesn’t affect the chemistry on the screen. And in my opinion and the opinion of many others this movie was absolutely amazing! It definitely the best movie in the series and probably the best movie I’ve ever seen. So to those who don’t want to watch because of this so called “scandal,” think again because you are really missing out.

    Comment by Simply 1derful — December 2, 2012 @ 12:53 pm

  57. I think you’re blaming the whole issue of Kristen AND the director solely on Kristen. It takes two to cheat and she cant be blamed if he chose to make that decision with her, she can only be blamed for cheating on Rob and breaking the trust in that relationship.

    Comment by Simply 1derful — December 2, 2012 @ 12:57 pm

  58. Don’t be an idiot! The last movie is the best one in the series, and the best movie I’ve ever seen.

    Comment by Simply 1derful — December 2, 2012 @ 1:01 pm

  59. A little late but as we see the Twilight franchise made billions and Kristens indiscretion did not hurt it; in fact probably helped it. She is a young star not prepared for this craziness and like many young girls was swept away by her much older boss. Story old as time but let’s realize she is a kid who was taken advantage of. 22 is hardly an adult. I hope things work out for her and people stop the name calling. She seems very shy and learned a lesson the horrible way. A kiss is hardly an affair.
