Rupert Sanders: Kristen Stewart is a ‘beautiful tomboy, so tough, so grown up’

I have a serious question: just how many interviews did Rupert Sanders and Kristen Stewart give just before their affair was discovered? Because it feels like a lot. Because it feels like every single week since the affair became public, we’ve had some new interview with either of them in which they say something that is laughable, strange, ironic, crazy or sketchy, given what we now know about them. With that in mind, here’s what Ol’ Rupert (“The Predator” to Twihards) had to say about his beloved Lip-Biting Lover:

When news broke that Rupert Sanders had a tryst with Kristen Stewart, cheating on his model wife Liberty Ross, many wondered what would draw Rupert away from his gorgeous wife. As a interview detailing his first impression of Kristen, given before word of the affair was out, has just been released, we might understand his decision a little more.

Rupert tells Vogue UK, of his first impression, “She’d burnt her lower pelvis area, quite low down. She was bandaging a bad burn there, in her very tight jeans, with a Camel clamped between her teeth. That was my very first image of her.”

Beyond the very provocative first meeting, he says, “She’s got this masculine edge. She’s like this beautiful tomboy or something. What surprised me most when I met Kristen was how unlike the character of Bella Swan she was in real life.”

“She was so tough, so grown up. She was exactly the modern badass version of Snow White that I was looking for. I wanted that young, spirited, rebellious warrior, and she epitomized all of that,” he adds.

Perhaps giving a warning that Sanders wanted more than just a professional relationship he compared Kristen and his wife Liberty together, with the 22 year-old winning out as “royalty” in comparison – OUCH! He went on: “There’s a look they share. Kristen is almost like royalty the way she understands what she has to do, in the way that she has to learn to compartmentalize… Well, Lib’s quite ‘regal’ or something as well.”

To be fair to Team Kristen’s self-perpetuating victimization scheme, Rupert DOES sound like he was kind of infatuated with Kristen, and if you told me he made the first move, I would believe you. But it’s still not enough to make me think that he’s a predator or that Kristen is a victim of anything other than her own bad attitude and self-satisfaction.

Yesterday, we discussed how Us Weekly and People Mag were both in agreement about ROBSTEN being utterly UNBROKEN. Well, OK! Mag (via Hollywood Life) has a funny story about Kristen being so devastated in the wake of The Mini-Coopering that she sought therapy. A source claims, “As for Kristen, this is far and away the most devastating thing that’s ever happened to her. She’s getting counseling, but she feels like the only thing that would make her happy would be if Rob would take her back.” The source also claims that Summit is so eager for Kristen and Robert to reunite that they’ve offered to pay for couple’s counseling. Ha. It looks like Summit got its way, though – there have been reports of THREE secret meetings between Kristen and Rob.

    That’s pretty much what I think, too.

    • meg says:

      I agree with this assessment as well. However, there’s this quote from Kristen found on the SWATH bonus features: ”I never want to leave. I’m constantly following him around. I’m sure he hates me. I’m sure he’ll come in and tell you that I’m great, but I’m sure I annoy him very much. But it’s been awesome.” which might confirm the initial story given by on set sources who claimed she was also infatuated with him.

      Another thing that comes to mind is what a strange way for Kristen to first meet her boss/soon to be boss! She sure did want to make an impression. ;)

      that said, he’s scum. Lying filthy dishonorable scum. I don’t understand how Liberty isn’t curled up in a ball weeping her eyes out over this oh so public betrayal and one slap in the face after another courtesy of her proclaimed “first love”

      • meg says:

        And the worst part is that he gave this interview to Vogue over the phone while in Hawaii vactioning with Liberty and their children. Was Liberty in the next room? Was the 5 year old sitting on his lap? Man has no shame.

      • Andria says:

        Part of me wants to see that as code for:
        “He flattered me and we f*cked, and now I’m insecure about how he feels. Did he mean those things he said? Did he? Is he avoiding me or just busy?” repeat obsessively x1000.

      • meg says:

        ha! There does seem to be an obsessive teenage girl in there somewhere. One of the best stories I’ve heard was shared by a VH1 journalist. Happened during the British promo tour – Kristen watched adoringly as Rupert ran through a few interviews, quietly standing by with a ladybug held her hand. (the interviews were outside under a tent) When he finished she walked over to him, gently placed the ladybug on his arm, smiled sweetly and told him it was for “good luck”
        awwwwwwwwwww lurv

      • CTgirl says:

        Liberty has sense. Any woman with sense knows that you don’t show anything in public during such a time. Why would anyone want to be seen as the poor little wife? Better to carry on and move on.

      • Michele says:

        That quote from Kristen is in regards to directing. She said as much in many of the interviews she did during filming. She talked about how she was so excited to be able to see alot of the behind-the-scenes film making on the Snow White set such as the amazing special effects and other creative elements involved. I guess Rupert took the time to explain things to her and she was flattered by his willingness to do so since she wants to be a director some day. He must have been flattered as well with her enthusiasm and desire to learn more about filmmaking. It does have some amazing special effects.

        I think she’s a young, impressionable girl who got caught up in the moment. It didn’t help that Rupert was attracted to her in ways he shouldn’t have been. I’m not making excuses for either one of them but I can see how the lines could have become blurred between admiration and attraction. You have a director who is twice the age of a young actress who admires his work and follows him around the set watching how he does things. Then you have a young actress who wants to become a director some day who is flattered that her current director is so willing to take the time to answer her numerous questions about filmmaking.

        I don’t think looking at quotes from old interviews for “clues” or signs that something was going on at a precise moment during filming is going to shed light on anything. We weren’t there. Not one crew member, and there were lots of them on that set, came forward and said they witnessed anything inappropriate between Kristen and Rupert during filming. Not before or after the scandal. There was a fake story immediately following the pic release that Liberty’s brother said he knew it began during filming from set eyewitnesses but the fake story was debunked right away. Her brother never talked to any reporter.

    • bec says:

      Eve that is so amazing you were the first to post this because I actually cut & copied to post the exact same paragraph.
      It eloquently sums up exactly how I feel and Im pretty sure exactly how it is!!

  2. LadyJane says:

    If she is so “grown up” why does he call her a tomboy? Isn’t that a phrase you use for a child? I can’t help but think that he was turned on by how young she is. Gross.

  3. Fai says:

    I’m more interested to know how she got the burn in that area, keeping the biscuit-munching in mind…
    And wearing tight jeans over a bandage covering a bad burn? That’s not tough, just stupid.

  4. CTgirl says:

    The big questions about all of this still need to be asked and answered. Such as, how exactly do you burn your lower pelvic area? Dropping a bowl? A pipe? Playing fire games? But the big question is why was she bandaging this in front of people – especially a stranger that she just met? KS belongs at a truck stop doing dances to earn beer money. This $hit just keeps getting better .

  5. Shay says:

    So he walked in on her bandaging her vag…?
    You can tell how badly he wanted her just from this interview. I feel bad for Rob Pattinson if he’s read any of this stuff.

  6. stinky says:

    “it just happened”
    (thats what they’ll say in their next interview)

  7. jess says:

    He is so creepy. He definatly had a crush on her from the beginning. I think he is the one who pursued her. I think he was feeding into her ego and telling her how great she was and she was loving it.

    • Liv says:

      Yeah, and why is he always pointing out the fact of her masculine side?? Nothing against women with a masculine side, but he seems to be into it so much…I don’t get it.

      • UNF Joan Jett! says:

        Because women with masculine touch are very sexy to some people ;) Maybe he is into androgyny or something? Maybe he thinks that her tomboyish ways make her a very special snowflake?

      • meg says:

        It’s that heady combo of pretty face and macho attitude. Gets ‘em everytime. ;)
        Liberty is a girly girl.

      • Lizi says:

        I’m what you can consider to be a tomboy =P I am not the average pink girly girl, I like doing boy/man stuff like joking around, drinking a few beers, going to rock concerts where you usually see more guys than anything,playing computer games,which sounds very normal and un-tomboy-ish. The thing is I don’t waste much time with makeup and hair or heels,i hate shopping,i am straightforward,i communicate better with guys than with girls,i hate to watch sports but love to play them,i like doing all sorts of stuff that usually girls my age don’t do,plus i dont dress nicely and my nails are horrible,and sometimes my hair looks like a tornado just flew by.i curse a LOT when i’m around friends,but I am super polite and considerate when the occasion requires so. I walk awkwardly. I hate when men stare at me and I want to kick them in the balls,I hate to draw attention. I love learning cultural stuff,I love to talk about art,my materialistic dream is to own a stratocaster guitar and a harley davidson. I think that this easily makes me one of the boys,you know? Guys usually feel comfortable around tomboys. Tomboys are usually not uptight at all. I’ve always been like this. .in THAT sense I might be a bit similar to our “beloved” kstew. the thing is…unlike her i’m not stupid, fake and ignorant.

    • Janelle says:

      Yeah… and she had a crush on him and followed him around. Seems the pursuit was entirely mutual.

  8. Paloma says:

    This Rupert guy was completely smitten the moment he saw her. I wonder if the bird shooting and the “F” word sent him over the top?

    • eb says:

      The thing I keep seeing is how much alike they look. They could be brother sister. It’s not wonder he flipped over her, don’t they say some people date those that look like themselves?

      Especially the mouth. Those teeth!

      This coupled with the teenage badass vibe probably did him in. Tells a lot about him perhaps.

  9. Bad Irene says:

    Like the cleaning of my house, this crap just does not end. Can they all just drink a big old pitcher of stfu.

  10. Brown says:

    As much as I hope it’s not true, I feel bad for Rob if he has decided to try and make things work with her. Trying to make yourself forgive/forget your lovers indescretion is hard enough without having to continuously hear shit like this, or read an interview where her creepy side piece gushes about her burnt vagina.

    I also feel really bad for Liberty. This interview is so disgusting all-around. Gushing about Kristen and calling her regal, and then throwing in a half-assed “compliment” to your wife (which is essentially just comparing her to Kristen and from his statement, comes up really short) is such a dick move.

  11. Elena says:

    Giving away such intimate details in an interview… it seems kind of, if not downright, creepy.
    I thought this guy’s a douche, but I’m starting to think some deeper issues are at work.

    • Lucy says:

      Right? I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she’s not the first girl in her 20′s he’s screwed around with

    • mainland says:

      I agree……. I use to like kristen, and I think she’s a very pretty girl so I get the appeal, but this interview doesn’t make me think he was infatuated with her, it makes me think he was infatuated with her age. If this were lily collins, emily browning, or jennifer lawrence he would be saying complimentary things about them as well and comparing them to his wife just to get in their pants. So basically, it could of been any pretty young actress and he would be salivating. I bet this is a pattern for him, kristen isn’t the first and she won’t be the last.

    • Janelle says:

      Oh for Pete’s sake!! Stewart is not a child, she’s an adult. A fact that Sanders himself mentions. He was attracted to her maturity. She was not the victim of a pedophile.

      • mainland says:

        Of course she isn’t a child. I think she was just as much the pursuer as rupert and equally responsible for choosing to be with a married father of 2. With that said, I still think that big part of rupert’s attraction to stewart is that she is only 22. If it weren’t stewart it would have been someone else of similar age. Thinking this doesn’t change the fact that kristen is a full grown adult, I just don’t believe he would have been so gushy about a 32 year old. i think it’s a pattern with him, he likes them young….. Kristen being a cliche, poser, fake as a 3 dollar bill doesn’t negate the fact that rupert is beyond creepy and his comments are disturbing.

      • Janelle says:

        @mainland
        What evidence do you have that Sanders has done this before? How do you know he wouldn’t be attracted to someone who is 32 years old? There is nothing in his statements suggesting that her youth was the main attraction. He admires her maturity and toughness. If Saunders had not been married and Stewart was single, would you still consider their relationship “creepy”? The world is full of successful marriages between people who are 20 or more years apart in age. Are all of these relationships creepy? Is the marriage of Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas creepy? From Stewart’s remarks we can see clearly that she was as smitten with him as he was with her. If she didn’t consider him too old neither should we. Both are adults and both are responsible for what happened.

      • mainland says:

        His wife wasn’t even 18 when he showed interest in her, and he stated he waited until she was of legal age before he pursued her. Kristen was about 21 not even 22 when she started working on SWATH. Thats all I need to know that there may be a pattern with this guy. His actions however are enough for me to question what may interest him most, and that is youth. He may be attracted to a 32 year old (its nowhere near old anyway) but I doubt it. IMO, if it were any other actress of kristen’s age working on SWATH instead he would be salivating over them as well.

        If sanders wasn’t married and kristen were single would I consider the relationship creepy? HELL YEAH!!!!! How do you know so many marriages with older men/ younger women with this big an age gap are all happy or healthy? I don’t care how common it may be, its disturbing and I will ALWAYS stand by that belief. With that said, we aren’t talking about single people or my stance on other older/younger relationships with hypothetical people. We are talking about rupert and kristen.

        Like I said, kristen is an adult and I believe she was just as interested in rupert as he was in her. I have no sympathy for either of them. Kristen being attracted in him at 22 will not and should not have any influence on how I feel about this situation. Its my opinion, I don’t look to anyone to determine how I should feel. I mean seriously, kristen also felt it was okay to eat dinner at liberty’s home, take her kids out for ice cream, and fuck her husband, so all that should be okay with me too? Just b/c kristen felt it was? Which is it with you, you state that since kristen is 22 and was attracted to sanders that should be enough for me to accept the age difference, well it doesn’t make it okay with me nor should it. They are both scum and are both wrong and share equal blame. I however will not obsolve rupert of blame just b/c kristen is 22 and legal.

      • meh says:

        @mainland
        Wow, your post pissed me off. My boyfriend is 39 and I’m 27. Are you implying there is fundamentally something wrong or unhealthy about our relationship because of our age difference? There are dysfunctional relationships all across the board. Perhaps in some of them, age differences may play a part when the two people are at different places in their lives – maybe one wants kids, the other doesn’t, one wants to go out and party, the other doesn’t, etc — but that’s not ONLY applicable to relationships where there is a big age difference.
        I’m really sorry if you find the thought of people falling in love with someone that falls outside your acceptable age range disturbing but it happens successfully all the time.

      • mainland says:

        @meh I was asked if I would still find kristen stewarts relationship with rupert disturbing if neither were attached and I gave my opinion. Sorry if it pisses you off or that you don’t like it but thats my opinion, popular or not and I have a right to it. I have no interest in discussing whether couples who date much older or younger people are happy and/or healthy, and I made that clear earlier. My only interest in this thread is analyzing rupert and kristen’s affair. I won’t go off topic in this thread, and talk about your relationship or the relationships of hypothetical people.

      • meh says:

        “I won’t go off topic in this thread, and talk about your relationship or the relationships of hypothetical people.”

        Okay..well when you make statements like “I don’t care how common it may be, its disturbing and I will ALWAYS stand by that belief”, you’re going off topic and talking about relationships of hypothetical people. Just sayin.

      • mainland says:

        I stated this: “If sanders wasn’t married and kristen were single would I consider the relationship creepy? HELL YEAH!!!!! How do you know so many marriages with older men/ younger women with this big an age gap are all happy or healthy? I don’t care how common it may be, its disturbing and I will ALWAYS stand by that belief.”

        My comment was still in relation to kristen and rupert and answering the question asked of me in regards to older/younger relationships and I answered in one sentence without going any further into it b/c I have no interest in discussing anything other than kristen and rupert’s affair. My comments were of specific questions asked to me, and I answered that question and made it clear that my interest is in kristen and rupert. A vast majority of my post is about that and like I said, I stand by my opinion.

  12. Alexis says:

    Um…it sounds like he viewed her more as a lady child, emphasis on child.

  13. Darth says:

    This “girl” is the biggest bore I have ever seen. She has absolutely no personality, no presence, and just no appeal whatsoever. The fact that she is famous, beloved by the public, and put into movies when she has ZERO to offer & nothing to emote is so insane. What has become of our society?

  14. JessSaysNo says:

    He’s a cheater, plain and simple. I dont think this was his first affair because I think Liberty would have probably stayed. I’m sure they hashed out all of his affairs and now she’s dumped his ass.

    He was in a position of power over her, he thought she was hot and was clearly very infatuated with her. His first run in with her was of a sexual nature (bandaging her burnt pelvis) and it looks like he really did pursue her. She is NOT a child though and she made her own choices. Weird interview.

  15. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    Rupert tells Vogue UK, of his first impression, “She’d burnt her lower pelvis area, quite low down. She was bandaging abad burn there, in her very tight jeans, with a Camel clamped between her teeth. That was my very first image of her.” Cough! Cough! ROFLLLLLLLLLLL!

  16. Yasmina says:

    Know what I don’t get? The comments about K-Stew (who I also think is a lip-biting idiot who knew what the heck she was doing) being ‘so low’ for getting with a married man. Why is this a focus?!?! Cheating is the issue, and cheating is wrong, period. The position Rupert was in (director, his wife played her mother) made the story more juicy, but it shouldn’t make her anymore trashy than anyone who cheats. And this interview is hilariously creepy.

  17. Andrea says:

    I don’t get why people blame Kristen. Honestly, I have been the victim in my mid 20′s believing his ex was now only his roommate. I was stupid and he was a smooth socipath who tricked many women into sleeping with him(including many of his students, he was a college prof) and stating all his exes were “crazy”. Is it possible Rupert is a sociopath or serial cheater? I totally see him pursing her.

    • andy says:

      Rupert is a sociopath, and Liberty is a psychopath.

      Kristen Stewart is completely innocent of any wrongdoing. After all, she is just a child.

      Please.

    • Annie says:

      Andrea, he was not a sociopath. I’m sorry to tell you that you were the dumb one here. How can you be so oblivious to someone’s life? Signs, red flags. You missed them all. Life is not going to spell everything out for you. Use your instincts, child. People lie. I’m sure at some point you felt something was wrong but you brushed it off. Don’t victimize yourself or any other adults when you should’ve known better.

      Kristen was very well aware this guy was married. I don’t know where you’re getting at comparing your experiences. She knew. She knew his wife. It was an a-hole move not to care. No momentary a-holery. Real-holery.

    • Janelle says:

      Stewart admits that she was the one following him around. She also pursued the relationship. They are both equally guilty.

    • Janet says:

      @Andrea: Because she could have said no. That’s why.

      I am sick and tired of people coddling and infantilizing this bitch. Every damn thing she does is somebody else’s fault. She’s nothing but a spoiled, entitled brat who thinks she has a right to whatever she wants. If Rob takes her back he deserves everything he gets.

      • Andrea says:

        I just think we wouldn’t know unless we were in her shoes honestly. I am not coddling her, I just feel too much blame is placed on her and not enough on the married man! I have seen so many married people cheat on their spouses (men and women) that it has become common to seek out someone when times get rough. I merely feel he had a good line to feed her. I am not easily swayed now, but in my 20′s, I was naive and could have easily done what she did and not realized the consequences until after the fact. Everyone is acting all holier than thou, I know grown adults (women) who cheat on their spouses just as often as men, yet women are always always viewed as she should have stepped away but had it been a man, it would have been well good for him with the older lady. Such double standards in our society. Don’t tell me you wouldn’t be tempted if the right guy came along!

      • Janelle says:

        @Andrea
        No, people with morals and concern for the feelings of others don’t cheat because it’s wrong. Saying that we would all do what Stewart and Sanders did if given the chance tells me more about you than it does about them.

      • Janet says:

        Of course I might be tempted. Acting on it is something else again. She has zero respect for her boyfriend and she has none for herself.

    • Shelley says:

      He’s to blame for being a married man, with children, and choosing to disregard his marital vows. She’s to blame for choosing to have sex with a married man. Both are to blame for knowing they’d cause tremendous pain to two people who thought their partners were faithful and honest. Both are equally repulsive.

      And all this aside – other than having good hair on the rare occasions she’s photographed with it having been shampooed recently, how can anyone find her other than a homely, squinchy-faced girl with constant expression of peevish aggravation?

  18. Chattycat says:

    Oh and “Kristen is almost like royalty the way she understands what she has to do, in the way that she has to learn to compartmentalize … Well, Lib’s quite ‘regal’ or something as well.” If Liberty didn’t kick his nuts up to his throat before she kicked his ass out the door then I am sure her lawyers are going to use THAT line in every single meeting regarding the divorce settlement and custody case…I can’t think referring to your wife as a “or something” in any context wouldn’t make your lawyer wish to crawl in the hole right beside his client. He has now been completely unmanned.

    Oh and little miss home wrecker herself better hope she doesn’t run into Liberty anywhere…my money is on Lib regardless of lmhw’s “tomboy” vibe.

    Oh and I wonder if her “lower pelvic area” was healed by the time the mini-cooper munching rendezvous happened. Maybe he was just picking at some scabs, albeit with his teeth, or maybe he was just concerned and wanted to make sure her burn was healing properly? NOT!!!!!

  19. Dani says:

    Ugh. That interview makes me want to take a shower to wash his skeeziness off. Reminds me of a creepy gym teacher.

  20. Aria says:

    He is disgusting. KS and Rupert deserve each other.

  21. Lachica says:

    This man sounds like a drooling perv who abused his power and position and pursued the younger version of his wife. Sorry I can’t hate on KS for falling for his lines. I just hope she has learned a lot about herself from this debacle.

    • Janelle says:

      Stewart admitted that she followed him around. She also pursued the relationship. They are both adults. What part of that don’t you understand? She’s not an innocent child.

      • Bugsrunny says:

        We actually know nothing whatsoever about what happened, only that it did–per the US Weekly photos and Stewart’s apology. All the details about how it started, how long it continued, who pursued whom are total speculation. Go ahead and speculate all you want, but none of us can pretend that we know any facts save one–that they mini-coopered and got caught.

      • Anne de Vries says:

        That ‘following him around’ quote sounds a lot more like insecurity to me than that she was persuing him for sex/a relationship.

        I think she’s young, inexperienced and insecure (ALL her attitude just comes across as enormous insecurity problems) and that he knew what he was doing a lot better than she did. That doesn’t excuse her of responsibility, but I’m tired of how much harder she is getting punished than he is.

        She wasn’t just fired from the sequel, they cut her character out the sequel. That HE gets to direct. None of this is touching him.

  22. Annie says:

    With all these stories about them meeting I hope she is at least telling Rob the truth. No more “momentary lapse” excuse. Be truthful. This was going on for months. I’m one of those who think it started onset. Back then there were rumors of her not even taking Rob’s calls. Those mini cooper pictures were telling. They were all over each other. A drunken kiss at a party is a momentary lapse in judgement. Those pictures at the bridge with their hugging, hands on the back of his neck playing with his hair, fingers entwined. That’s intimacy. Dare I say, that’s falling in love. At least tell Rob everything. You owe him that. Don’t lie to save your ass. That’s, again, acting selfish.

    All this incriminating shit?:

    “She’d burnt her lower pelvis area, quite low down. She was bandaging abad burn there, in her very tight jeans, with a Camel clamped between her teeth. That was my very first image of her.”

    Why does he bring it up? How does he know? Why is he talking about it? Open those eyes Rob.

  23. moo says:

    Look at his hands on her in these photos….. what a sleeze ball! And, she was just getting romanced by EVERYONE in the world at this time – everyone was slobbering all over her…. dumb little girl let it all go to her head!! Big enough ego now, honey??? You should be lucky your boytoy took you back!
    Ugh… I am personally TIRED of her!

  24. Honey Poo Poo formally known as beyonce's bump says:

    Omg this again

  25. The Original Mia says:

    The is an ass to be sure. Seems they are truly perfect for each other. She thinks she’s all that & he feels the same about her. Bet there was a lot if ego stroking going on between them, both literally and figuratively.

  26. Woody88 says:

    He would not have said those things if he thought that he was headed into an affair with Kristen. Some unknown event triggered their momentary indiscretion. I do not know what time frame that is but Kristen would not have said that knowing that within days/weeks she would have to explain the whole story to Rob if there was a long term affair going on. They were probably just getting started.

    • ORLY says:

      The Devil made them do it?

      One could say, he wouldn’t have said those things if he thought they were going to be caught.

      • A says:

        I think if it had been some long term thing, since filming, that the tabloids would have dug up more evidence, etc. The worst they found outside Mini Cooper gate was a photo of them having dinner while promoting the film and then some tabloid making up a quote from someone in Liberty’s family, who later said they never talked to any tabloid. I don’t think it was a one time thing, but I also don’t think it went on for very long. My bet is he played her like Yo Yo Ma during the entire filming, stroking her ego and all that. I also think she and RPattz were never this monogamous couple “robsten” whatever, so she was unused to male attention and stupid enough to take his pervy nature as a sign of love. Then when they were doing the promotions and staying in hotels with not that many people around and not having to worry or stress about filming all day every day….he went in for the kill.

        I disagree with Kaiser to an extent. I think they are both guilty of cheating (50/50). However, I also think he is kind of a predator (that doesn’t absolve KStew of fucking a married dude). His quotes about her, waiting for his wife to be legal, etc…plus the fact that he was old enough to be her Dad and had kids…He sounds manipulative as hell and like he preys on very young women. That said, those young women are complete morons for falling for his shit. It’s like those women who fall for the shit that men spout about how they would get a divorce but they don’t want to do it to their kids, or that their wife doesn’t “understand them” (gag), or how they have an open arrangement but the wife never wants to know and they can only meet in crappy hotel rooms (double gag). A guy tried to pull that sh-t on me once, and I saw through it and told him to go to hell.

      Or…they said it because they thought they wouldn’t get caught.

      • Joelle says:

        The so-called photo of Kristen and Rupert dinner is actually a group photo wherein Charlize is seated between Kristen and Rupert, and Kristen is paying attention to Charlize talking. There is a video of that group dinner and that’s where you see what really happened and not what the tabloids said.

    • meg says:

      hmmm I don’t know about that. The Vogue quote was given about a week before the infamous pics were taken.

  27. Annie says:

    I wonder how they feel about each other now, Rupert and Kristen. Did they speak after the pictures came out? Did the infatuation evaporate immediately? Do they hate each other now? Are they sad it’s over or angry that it happened at all?

    I just want to know what happens to people like this after breaking relationships, marriages, etc.

    • Girlattorney says:

      Can’t speak from the perspective of the cheater, but when my husband done me wrong and everything blew up, basically the other woman (who had been a good friend of mine) disappeared from my world and, i believe, his. For about three months. Then the secret texting and phone calls started again. Then, for unrelated reasons, we moved.

      It probably depends on the people, depends on what happens to their primary relationships.

    • Janice says:

      Deep down Kristen is a nice person and she took very hard what she has done. She hates herself. However, Robert was the one who tipped the pappz and he is sorry that it turned so ugly and badly.

  28. Elly says:

    1. vile guy (and he has rabbit teeth like Prince William?!)

    • A says:

      +1000. That’s my basic thought, although some people jumped on me because they dislike KStew so much that they think she had to have manipulated him with her vagina of doom or whatever. Both are equally guilty of cheating. However, they both come off badly in different ways and I just find him more disgusting as a whole based on his age, family situation, and his creepy quotes about his wife and KStew… He sounds manipulative, disgusting, and just plain vile and bad. She sounds immature, manipulative and selfish. Apples and oranges. She learned a hard ass lesson, and I hope she grows the hell up. As far as he goes…I think you can’t teach an old dog new tricks applies in his situation. He sounds like he’s cheated before, and I bet he’ll cheat again. While I don’t believe in “once a cheater, always a cheater” at 40 something if you are still cheating when you have young kids that might just apply.

      • Janice says:

        The marriage had cracks and was on the rocks. Liberty made statements to the fact that she was resentful in her marriage, and her father in law said that the flirt between Kristen and Rupert was nothing compared to what the the marriage had been through. Rupert’s marriage was not good.

  29. Janelle says:

    I thought we were done infantalizing Stewart and characterizing Sanders as a pervert. The above article shows that she also pursued the relationship. Stewart wanted him and he wanted her. They had an affair they both wanted. Now, accept that she did something wrong, apologized for it and is moving on. Shifting responsibility for what happened on to everyone but Stewart is delusional.

    • A says:

      -I agree with you completely on this. But calling him out as pervert doesn’t mean one is absolving KStew of guilt or not blaming her for being an active participant. Fact is, the dude was old enough to be her father and gave numerous creepy quotes, involving one that mentioned waiting for his wife to be legal. Anyone who fucks someone young enough to be their kid while married is a grade A pervert in my mind. I have a hard time buying that she pursued an old, unattractive dude like him when there were a hell of a lot more available options for her…it’s more likely he fed her a line and she bit. I do believe a lot of the blame rests with Rupert, who went after a dumb, immature 22 year old who clearly has some serious issues. I believe a lot of the blame rests with KStew, for being stupid and selfish enough to fall for a married man old enough to be her Dad. Apples and oranges.

      • andy says:

        “I have a hard time buying that she pursued an old, unattractive dude like him when there were a hell of a lot more available options for her…it’s more likely he fed her a line and she bit.”

        Yet,she had no problem sleeping with that unattractive dude.

        Just because you find him unattractive doesn’t mean that Kristen did.

      • Annie says:

        I’d believe Kristen is sorry and he isn’t. At all. First time we saw him post-scandal he was smirking. Then waving his wedding ring like “Nothing happened to me LOL”. She dropped a lot of weight and looks sad. I think she really regrets the whole thing, admitedly because it got her in trouble, but still. He seems to not care at all. Maybe not the first time he cheated.

        It would suck if his marriage survives this and another relationship got ruined, or the other way around. I would be so pissed. And this has nothing to do with one relationship being stronger than the other, more like, two people staying together in a doomed relationship.

      • Janelle says:

        It does not matter that he is 20 years older than her. He is NOT her father or any other relative. She is 22 years old, an adult. A man of 42 who finds a 22 year old attractive because of her maturity and toughness is not a pervert. He did not in any way force her to have an affair with him. Sanders may appear old and unattractive to you but Stewart obviously liked him. There is nothing perverted about 22 and 42 dating and having a relationship. As for the power dynamic, Stewart actually had more power in this situation. He is nobody and she is a huge star and studio darling. Painting Stewart as a victim is an insult to people who are truly the victims of predatory behavior in the workplace.

    • A says:

      @Janelle. Well, then you and I have very different standards of what a perv is. I get age differences, but it’s very odd to fk someone who is young enough to be your child (a 20 year age gap)…When you are MARRIED with CHILDREN and you are attracted to and pursue someone young enough to be your child, then I think said person is a total, complete pervert. When he was lusting after this young woman, he should have thought about the fact that he was in college before she was born and that he had kids. She should have equally considered the fact that he had children and a wife. I really have no clue how you can read his quotes about waiting for his wife to be of legal age, his quotes about KStew and his obvious attraction to her age, and not think this guy is a pervert..and again “sigh” calling him a pervert and gross does not mean that I’m calling KStew a victim.

      I do agree that she admitted that she f’d up and apologized and that this gossip is getting really old. I’m getting sick and tired of seeing everyone’s name involved in this whole mess. However, whenever someone does a Sienna Miller post people always seem to write “slut, homewrecker, etc.” People like that will be calling KStew a whore if she’s still around in five years, even if she’s completely turned her life around. This will dog her for the rest of her career, just like it dogs Sienna, Angelina, Claire Danes, etc. People can let it go when it comes to men, like Ashton and Sean Penn (dude got hit with a domestic assault charge in addition to his f’ing around) and Hugh Grant….But they can never let it go when it comes to women.

  30. perla says:

    he is disgusting, and i do believe he is the one that started everything, he was infatuated with her from the start, what sane director would share those details about meeting his leading actress?? he met her at the BD set, she was in her trailer fixing her wound when he saw her, she wasn’t doing it in public.

    And dont use her “I followed him around” comment to imply that she persuaded him, she is always behind the directors, she is intersted in directing some day, go read about her working with Bill Condon or Chris Wise, she is like that with all of them.

    Sanders is the only pig that took advantage of that

    • andy says:

      You claim that his comments show that he was a predator chasing an innocent lamb.

      But…

      DON’T YOU DARE TWIST HER WORDS AROUND TO PROVE THAT SHE WAS CHASING HIM.

      **sighs**

    • Annie says:

      Dude… She wanted him too. Did he use his position to get closer? Sure, but you can argue that so did she. Does he have 20 years more experience than her? Of course. But she’s not a little girl either and she’s an adult. Both entered this situation well aware of what they were doing: cheating. Sneaking off. Nobody was brainwashed, nobody was manipulated, nobody was forced. Your idol is a woman too. She gets the hots for other people, not just RPattz. And honestly she seemed pretty indifferent to him for a while. She was done.

      Now I don’t know about you guys but I still think she wanted to get caught. For various reasons. Now that she hurt Rob and saw everything unfold it’s not exactly what she imagined, but worse. I do think she’s sorry now and completely regrets it. But the carelessness of it all… Speaks very loudly to me. This is why so many people thought it was staged, it was so out there. She just let herself get caught.

      See the Comic Con pictures. So cold towards Rob. It was over. She should’ve let him go.

      • Mi says:

        Great post Annie.I agree she wanted to get caught.Maybe she wanted some ”real proof” if Robert really loved her and could forgive her betrayal(Bella issue?)It’s like she checked him,I don’t know how to explain it.Maybe she wanted to see his rage(he seems not agressive,on you tube is vid with paparazzi harassing him and he even didn’t rise his voice at them).But she went too far and could loose everything.I really hope he is done with her for his own sake.He will be filming all next year,so his career is the most important.

    This POS makes we want to hurl. Did it ever occur to him that his wife and the mother of his children might not appreciate being held up for comparison to a common slut? If I was Liberty I’d kick him so hard in the cojones he’d be walking on all fours for a week, and throw the divorce papers in his face as soon as he could stand up straight.

  35. aquarius64 says:

    Rupert’s first meeting of Kristen was seeing her bandaging her private area?! And no indication she acted with any kind of modesty? (Well we know modesty went out the Mini-Cooper door on that fateful day.) Rupert saw her as royalty: yeah he crowned her Queen of Skank-a-dank-a-dank-dank. And Kristen WILLINGLY accepted the orb and scepter he presented her. Geez Rob has to hear about this crap; I think he’s going to regret taking her back (if he did).

    Summit is paying for the counseling for these two? Why should the studio foot the bill; this is not a substance abuse issue. If the execs would have jerked a knot in Kristen for her immature unprofessional behavior during promos of their movies, they wouldn’t have this problem now. Anyone else who acts a fool on the job, or acts with a fellow employee that reflects badly on the project would have been fired. Kristen and her team are deluding themselves if they think this is going to go away. Kristen will never live this scandal down.

    • meg says:

      Come to think of it, the best thing about this sad, sordid little tale is that someone, anyone, thought Kristen Stewart was “regal.” Now THAT’S funny!

      Considering the way Rupe adored her and went to bat for her dubious acting chops, I wonder if he feels bad for the damage he’s done to her image? very hard to believe he genuinely cares about the damage he’s caused his wife and kids.

  36. Willow asqueada says:

    God, I didn’t read the new quotes till now and I just saw the video on youtube, I feel silly for the ‘charming librarian’ thing I said before.

    They both are to blame no matter what way you look at it, someone cannot be taken or ‘seduced’ unless they want to be. If she was truly emotionally invested in Rob shed of told him to buzz.

  38. Andrea says:

    What people are afraid to admit here is that everyone is capable of cheating. I know a guy who is a wonderful husband and father who has no clue that his wife is dicking around on him. She finds him boring. Yes, this guy Rupert appears sleazier than most, but in general, more often than not, there is infidelity and it is whether your marriage can recover form it or not. (in some instances on night stands etc I think it can be forgiven, in others like serial cheater up here, it should not be). I’m not saying we should lay down and accept it either, I am just saying that poor communication from the getgo usually is what starts these affairs. (In my friend’s case she wants different things in the bedroom and instead of telling her hubby(she doesn’t wnat to hurt his feelings), she finds it elsewhere. Is it right? NO! is it common? Yes!

    • Bobbie says:

      You’re totally right. I’ve been married 15 years. I got married when I was 22 and proceeded to have 4 kids bam-bam-bam. I love my husband and I have never been unfaithful to him, nor he to me, but it is hard work to be faithful. Sometimes it kind of sucks, actually, never to get to date or to walk away from someone you meet with whom you have great chemistry. The good parts about a long term loving monomogous relationship far outweigh the bad, but I think it’s funny how over the top judgmental people sound about this. He is gross yes, and she is immature but for starters, she is very young and very famous (i.e narcisstic). It’s really not very surprising.

    If Robert is indeed taking this girl, I will not hold it against him. It’s free sex, she has more experience now, she grovelled to get him back and she already betrayed him so no more surprises there. All in all, it’s a win-win situation for him. Why look for somebody else who will probably do the same. It’s better the devil you know.. And besides, seeing him promote Cosmopolis just right after the cheating, did he really look like a guy suffering? I don’t think so. The guy is not American.He doesn’t have a “I’m a jock attitude”. This is a guy who said that on the night before he would shirtless, he looked at himself and would never have Taylor’s body so he just ate all the chocolates in the mini bar. Tell me then if being called a wimp will matter to him.

      Thanks for the link, not sure if it’s for me, but you gave me something to check out!

      Kristen is indeed beautiful and could easily have been manipulated by an older Lothario, wise is the ways of getting starlets’ panties to drop. Both were wrong, but somehow I think Rupert will be the one to continue in his horndog ways sniffing after gullible young girls that are seduced by a pretty compliment and easily taken in by feeling like he’s the only one who ‘get’s her.

      Kristen, on the other hand, is a young woman who met Mr. Wrong and got burned. I think all of us, in hindsight, have at least dated a single guy who we realized used us shamelessly, or worse, and decided ‘never again’! She’s learned her lesson and will unlikely be dipping in the married man pool again.

      Summing it up – Rupert’s an old rapper from way back confirmed in his skirt chasing ways, and I think he’ll continue his position to access and “score” young actresses.

  47. Kosmos says:

    Hey, some of us were big tomboys when we were in our teens and 20s too…so big deal. Rupert was obviously infatuated with her, and she with him. It looks like it was mutual. His wife had no idea that his tutoring would lead to this, I’m sure. She supported his choice, trusted him, while he took advantage. KS is no different than many other young women her age. However, she has not acted respectfully, both in her actions and attitude throughout her career thus far.

  48. Chick says:

    Did he just admit he’s gay? I certainly thought before (just look at him), but having such a lame romance with a ‘tomboy’… What a trap: you make a family in order to be able to avoid coming out, and when you are grown enough to come out, you can’t: you’ve got kids. Great publicity stunt though.

    • UNF Joan Jett! says:

      Yes, it totally means that a man who is into tomboy-ish girls is secretly gay. Obviously. And a queer woman who prefers her ladys as tomboys is secretly straight and just to immature and scared to admit it. Obviously. Don´t mind the fact that human sexuality is much more complex than just straight or gay, don´t mind the fact that tastes differ, don´t mind the fact that a tomboy-ish woman is still a woman. Whatever. You totally got it right.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nico-lang/trampires-why-the-slut-sh_b_1850940.html

    I think all of this is coming down a LOT harder on KS than on Sanders. Maybe because people are really Pattinson fans and feel vindicated that nobody but themselves is good enough? Plenty of male stars have cheated and get wonderful comebacks and the public forgives them. Apparently it’s a whole lot worse for women to cheat.

    • Bugsrunny says:

      +100. The vitriol hurled at KS for months now has been intense, shocking, and just incredibly ugly. The people doing it seem to feel that they’re justified because KS cheated and therefore should be publicly shamed and humiliated. No words are too harsh, no amount of speculation too great. Is that the world we live in now? Do we really want to live there?

      I know, I know. I’m on a gossip site that’s snarky and fun and occasionally mean, and that’s why we all love it, me included. But this isn’t occasionally mean. It’s over-the-top relentless–and, I think, hypocritical. Who hasn’t hurt someone they love, intentionally or by mistake? Who hasn’t made a horrific mistake that affected many lives? Why are we all so hell bent on making KS pay? I think it’s a question worth asking.

She is a crazy sick person on a meltdown that is stalking her ex wearing his clothes and caps, she needs to go to rehab. Lindsay and Amanda anyone??

  52. Janice says:

    Kristen was on the set of Breaking Down I and II when Rupert met to discuss if she would be interested in doing SWATH. She had a minor injury. By the way Kristen was not interested in doing SWATH. She never went after the project not even thought about it. Her mom talked her into doing it. Kristen was 20 at the time because it was 2010 when she was filming BD 1 and II. I think that Kristen was just interested in the process of making the movie and Rupert would answer her questions and helped her. They may have bonded after the movie came out and was so successful and may have begun flirting. I think they may have been proud of being able to help each other. This was Rupert’s big professional success and Kristen’s outside of Twilight and they delivered for each other so a strong bond was formed. Kind of similar between Kristen and Robert who built Twilight together. It happens when people create something together.
