Kristen Stewart Apologizes For Affair With Married Director
A mis-step for Stewart or a move that will place her even further into the spotlight? Well USC sociologist Dr. Karen Sternheimer has said that Emile Durkheim (regarded as the father of sociology) was quite interested in the concept of social order and examined the glue was that held us altogether. She says that infidelity fits into this because "the collective disgust and outrage people express about high-profile cheaters serves to reaffirm a central societal value of fidelity." Interesting, huh? And in an increasing diverse and divided society, there are fewer and fewer shared values; hence stronger voice when a shared one comes up. But is the critique also, in an era where nearly everyone is his/her own paparazzi; a way to democratize celebrity too? Could be. Thing is, Hollywood is probably calculating loss or gain of DVD sales on the flick based on this now more than anything else. Gotta love it.
After pictures appeared online of actress Kristen Stewart kissing the director of her new movie “Snow White and the Huntsman” Rupert Sanders, Stewart issued an apology regretting this “momentary indiscretion.” She also apologized to “the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob.” Stewart and her co-star boyfriend Robert Pattinson met in 2008 on the set of the first movie of “The Twilight Saga.” Neither has publicly confirmed the relationship until now. Sanders also issued a statement saying he was ‘utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family.” Let's check in with her fans and nay-sayers.
What Others Are Saying...
I'm guessing Pattinson will come out of the closet soon and clear this all up. … Note to Kristen Stewart: You sleep with the director old enough to be your dad BEFORE you make your millions. … Sleeping her way to the bottom. How novel. … She's not so white snow after all. … The poor girl can't act her way out of a paper bag.
've never liked Rob and Kristen together and I sincerely hope he realizes how much better he can do and dumps her. … I feel bad for Rupert Sander's wife. I mean, he cheated on her with Kristen "no emotion" Stewart. … It's his children I feel sorry for most, so irresponsible! … Rob should be like "I will forgive you, but I want to forget you."
She's acting just like a guy - go girl! … For a not-so-great-looking woman, she sure gets around. … Once a cheater always a cheater. … not surprised. She had a long-term, live-in boyfriend when she and Pattinson started seeing each other. … The interesting thing here is that Robert Pattinson's career will get a boost as people talk about how that horrible girl screwed him over.
