Liberty Ross “already received audition offers on the back of Rupert’s affair”

One good thing has come out of The Mini Coopering of Kristen Stewart: Liberty Ross is now a legit celebrity. Ross, the wife of Rupert Sanders, modeled for years in the UK and beyond, and she was just getting beginning to get her feet wet in the acting world when her husband went biscuit-diving with Kristen Stewart. So, what will become of Liberty Ross’s burgeoning film career now that she’s got a lot of public support behind her? According to Radar, Liberty has been inundated with offers. Good for her!

Being front page news has benefitted the budding acting career of Liberty Ross, is exclusively reporting. Since her husband Rupert Sanders was caught in a clinch with Kristen Stewart, the British model has been inundated with movie offers from leading filmmakers. It’s something Liberty, 33, is desperate to take advantage of, especially after previously taking small roles in Madonna’s W.E. and Rupert’s Snow White and the Huntsman.

“It’s definitely what Liberty intends to push on with, she has caught the acting bug” a source revealed. “Although the cheating scandal caused a lot of unwanted attention in her private life, it certainly improved her profile as an actress. She has started to earn recognition for her performances in last year’s W.E. and this year’s Snow White and the Huntsman, and more movie directors have taken note of who she actually is.”

“The scripts have been flooding in, and she has already received audition offers on the back of Rupert’s affair. Liberty is delighted that she’s being finally recognized, she wants to pursue a career in the movies and is desperate to make more. She would of preferred if it had happened in a different way, but press is press. If she could swap her modeling career for a successful acting one, Liberty would do it in a heartbeat,” the source said.

On August, 22, Liberty was all smiles as she continued putting on a brave face at the premiere of Lawless, written by her pal, Aussie musician Nick Cave and starring Shia Labeouf and Tom Hardy. She has also been seen around town without her wedding ring and posted a cryptic ‘Freedom’ photo on her blog for Vogue UK.

However, Rupert was spotted on Sunday wearing his wedding ring as he took their two children to The Grove shopping center in West Hollywood, suggesting he is looking to salvage their marriage.

And according to a new report, Liberty and Rupert had a “marriage showdown” Friday at the Hollywood Hills home they once shared. UK paper, The People, claimed that Ross gave her estranged husband a “five point plan” to save their marriage, including a reworked pre-nup to give her better terms in the event they do eventually divorce.

“There’s a five-point plan that Liberty has drafted up that she would need Rupert to follow and sign in order for her to consider dropping the lawsuit,” a source told the paper. “Rupert’s desperate to patch things up so I’m sure he’d do anything. There is one point on the plan I can’t discuss. But her list also includes a re-writing of their pre-nup to make it more balanced for Liberty in the event they do divorce.”

“Time will tell but, for now, no more depositions in the case are being taken while lawyers on both sides wait to see if Rupert can meet the criteria and, even if he does, if that will be good enough for Liberty to feel she can trust him again.”

For the first time since the scandal broke, I was looking through some of Liberty’s old modeling shots, and she really was an outstanding model, capable of pulling off some very diverse looks. Plus, she has a really great figure (and nice boobs, although CB and I were debating if she has bolt-ons). I wouldn’t be upset with the idea of Liberty returning to her modeling roots, OR if she pursued an acting career. Or both. Mama needs to make some money! As for the whole the negotiation with Rupert and all… I keep getting the impression that Liberty is just trying to make him beg. She wants him to pursue her, to crawl back to her, to be so apologetic and so sad, and even then she might not take him back.

    I hope that Liberty makes some chicken salad out of the chicken sh*t her husband handed her.

  2. Ann says:

    Oh dear. Here come the conspiracy theorists in 3,2,1…

    It is amazing to me how many “exclusives” that has had on this story. Even more amazing is how many people believe them.

    I have to admit that I would find it awesome if Liberty were to make the douche grovel and crawl back on his hands and knees, only to kick him to the curb in the end anyway.

  3. Janet says:

    I’m hoping she is biding her time until November and then files for divorce on the grounds of adultery in the UK, right before the premiere of BD2, and names KStewpot as the co-respondent. What fun!

  4. Genevieve says:

    Good on her. If something positive for Liberty can come out of that whole cheating mess, more power to her.

    Although, it doesn’t look like she’ll be returning to her native England anytime soon, if she’s trying to develop an acting career.

    In my dreams, I see Liberty soaring to new heights as an actress and continuing to torture Rupert before she drops the divorce papers. As Rupert squirms in agony, he finally realizes that he’ll NEVER get another directing job in Hollywood. Flash forward to Rupert, a broken man, boarding a flight back to the U.K., his career in tatters, his shaming complete.

    It could HAPPEN?! 😉

  5. T.C. says:

    No woman wants to be humiliated in public by a cheating spouse. Not Sandra Bullock, not Tiger Wood’s ex-wife, not Liberty Ross. Don’t know if I believe this story. She probably wants to work more, have her own money so she can support her children if it comes to divorce. Her husband is a pig. How could you do this to the mother of your children. With a 22year old?

  6. lizzi says:

    I like models that look different and not cookie cutter. i think they truly are capable of pulling off some awesome photo shoots that generically beautiful girls cant. good for her!!

  7. teehee says:

    As much as I admire the class with which she handled this, she’d better bring more than another pretty face for 15 minutes- if she takes this up.

  8. mln76 says:

    I hope she re-negotiates the pre-nup then dumps him anyway 😉

  9. Jess says:

    She was a legit high fashion model in her 20’s. She isn’t particularly tall so she wasn’t on the runways, but she did a lot of print.

    • meg says:

      No, she’s not tall. Maybe 5’8″? But at the time shorter models were in style. Kate Moss is 5’7″. Liberty did a lot of runway work. Think she made her debut at Vuitton. I saw her on the D&G, Burberry and Jill Sander runways.

  10. asda says:

    I’m having a really hard time understanding how so many people are buying this ‘affair’ business. Especially with all the daily details as to everyone’s internal life. It’s so obviously fake. Even the photos, so fake. It’s the modern version of a soap opera, now that the old-school ones are dying off.

    And that this woman is now getting auditions is no happy accident.

    • Adeli says:

      You tried.

    • Janet says:

      I’m having a really hard time believing anyone could think KStew and Sanders both consented to fake photographs that would ruin their reputations and possibly their careers. Her PR team may be abysmally stupid but they’re not THAT stupid.

      • TrustMeOnThis says:

        Only the Twientologists believe that stuff. It is amazingly convoluted and Makes No Sense At All!

      • asda says:

        Thing is, Janet, is that the PR people are smarter than you, and that’s why it works. They have to be smarter than you to get you to believe it. I’d bet they even have some psychology consultants and all, even. (Freud’s nephew invented the idea of PR in America, afterall, look it up).

        This whole thing is fabulous for all of their careers. For the one’s whose careers may take a nosedive, it’s worth it for the notoriety and whoever is paying them.

        Seriously, who cares about reputation in Hollywood? Quite often, the worse yours is, the more successful and visible you are.

        (BTW, Liberty does not come from a great family by my assessment. I was friends with her brother and his gf for a bit and during that time he beat the shit out of her and was kind of a weirdo guy, so I would question the moral fiber of the environment in which they were raised. I would bet she doesn’t mind being ‘fake’ humiliated for fame, besides she gets to end up looking the saint here anyway… and now auditions! Before now barely anyone even heard of her.)

      • asda says:

        I bet even the people who run this blog and others may even get a nice bit of change for pretending to believe/humoring this shit.. the tabloids and gossip pages are the life-blood of this crap, afterall.

      • Janet says:

        Thing is, Asda, nobody besides the Twihards is buying it. Nobody but you people are spouting that bullshit about the pictures are a setup. But if you want to believe that Lipbite McLewd is so stupid that she deliberately trashed her career and made herself look like a skank getting it on with a married guy with children, all for PR, have at it. In what possible way could this benefit her? Unlike Sanders, she didn’t need any more exposure to push her career. So why would she do it? Try to figure that one out while you’re muttering “Robsten is unbroken” or whatever mantra you Twihards are chanting this week.

    • asda says:

      Good Lord, I’m a Twihard?

      Dude, I’ve never read the books, never seen the movies, never been to any ‘twihard’ website, and I don’t give a shit about these people. I’m just amused at how gullible people are by the media, and I spent enough time in the Hollywood ‘scene’ to know a thing or two; I know some of these people.

      Think about this for a second: why the hell would any PR person (and you know these people have the best) let all this personal information out if they didn’t want it out? As you yourself said, “Why would any PR person be that stupid?” Unless it was ON PURPOSE? Everyone’s emotional states and internal thoughts? Come on.

      I would have thought it was the Twihards that would have believed this stuff was true the most… I have no idea what the Twihards actually believe or don’t.

      You’re welcome to keep hanging out in your Hollywood fantasyland that someone has already created for you, though. Although I’m starting to wonder if you’re a shill yourself…

      • well... says:

        I hope the “Hollywood scene” your talking about isn’t just the lifesized posters of the Twilight cast you obviously have lurking in your house. Peddle your stupidity elsewhere TRYHARD twihard. Pretending you aren’t a fan doesn’t cover up the lingering crazy. If you’re not a fan you’re just more like a little bit infantile because that’s the dumbest most asinine thing I’ve ever heard…ever. No one wants bad PR EVER, the beat they can do is spin it they will however never create it. As someone else said before GO back to chanting lady.

      • asda says:

        You guys are really obsessed with ‘Twihards’ aren’t you?

        They’re lurking around every corner! A person must be one if they disagree with you!

        Talk about juvenile.

  11. keats says:

    Has anyone seen either of these movies? How is her acting? Not trying to be a snark, just curious.

  12. Ravensdaughter says:

    She likes fur. Bet K-Stew wouldn’t wear it!

    • Janet says:

      She wouldn’t wear fur but she’d screw another woman’s husband. So what is that supposed to make her, some kind of saint?

  13. meg says:

    wow. Kristen’s PR team is brutal. Between this and the ridiculous ‘5 year plan’ story, they’re working overtime painting an increasingly negative image of Liberty.

    “Liberty is just trying to make him beg. She wants him to pursue her, to crawl back to her, to be so apologetic and so sad, and even then she might not take him back.” Agree. She’s making him prove it. Also, it’s soothing her pride. I think he’s been neglectful of the marriage and the kids for the past few years.

    • Janet says:

      Payback’s a stone b*tch. As for KStew’s PR team, they are flailing out in all directions, throwing anything and everything at the wall to see if something sticks.

      • meg says:

        well, the “Robert is cruel to not forgive Kristen, and Liberty is a famewhore” angle appears to be doing the trick. Kristen is fast becoming the perceived victim in this sordid little story.

      • Janet says:

        Nobody outside Twihardstan is buying the KStew-as-victim story.

      • meg says:

        Christ, I hope not. Kristen’s clean up crew is really pushing this though. I don’t suppose they have much of a choice. Poor little Kristen was manipulated. *sniffle*

        I’m shocked Rupert hasn’t responded. She’s all but accused him of sexual harassment. He’s a lying cheat, but I don’t for a minute think he forced the issue.

  14. Beth says:

    Why would Liberty move back to UK.  She was born in America and lived there until she moved to the UK for primary school.  Her whole story about being a single mom forsaking her career while Rupert was off working is a bit of an exaggeration. She was a “single” mom who hosted parties in LA, went to parties in LA, had steady work in LA and hung out with lots of industry people in LA. She has a house in the hills and a beach front home in malibu. Pardon me that i am not crying a river for her. Their are plenty of pics out there that show Liberty was enjoying LA life and not driving a minivan to the PTA meetings.  She had a supportive family there as well because most of her siblings live there. Like many other woman who have a spouse with a job, she could have worked if she really, really wanted to. One can model in LA, its not like she was holed up in Nebraska where the opportunites are limited  She had plenty of connections there, ESP in the modeling world. Her best friends are stylists for vogue and Elle and editors for reputable fashion magazines.  I don’t really buy the excuse that she HAD to backburner her career  because of Ruperts job.  That said, her husband is a cad and HE is the one she should be super pissed at, but her first instinct was to go after Kristen S on several of her social media sites. I bet she takes him back.

    • sallyreo says:

      Thanks for your comment! You said it.

      Someone commented that Lib is assurng herself to have employment if she divorces Rupert. How naive is that, Lib
      comes from “old money”, old money never runs out, plus if she divorces, which I seiously doubt, she would take Rupert to the cleaners. Lib does not need to be seeking employment, if she is looking, it is not about the money.

      • rhodia says:

        old money most definitely runs out! and I very much doubt the ‘she is loaded spin’.

        also let’s get real about modeling. at 33+ a model’s career is pretty much behind her. she’s a knockout, but career modeling is a young person’s job.

    • meg says:

      Liberty was born in the UK. She did essentially quit the business after her two children were born. She resigned to Storm in, I think, 2008 and has worked steadily since then but nowhere near as much as she did before the kids. The move to LA was definitely a tough transition but getting back to work and buying the beachouse a few years ago made a world of difference. If you read the article in question, she said the first 5 years in LA were hard but everything was (at that point) “amazing”
      fwiw She’s getting a lot of extra interest in the modeling world now too. I expect she’ll see some high profile work in the near future. There was talk of an Elizabeth Arden contract not too long ago. Interesting to see if that is pushed through now.

      • Beth says:

        Libertys  father opened flippers in 1978, the same year she was born.  I “guess” her mother and the other 5 children were in the UK, if that is what you are claiming. Regardless, she grew up American until the move to the UK when she was 6.

           I find it odd that she was so miserable and had a hard time adjusting to la. Her siblings lived there, she worked, partied and played there, she had more than enough money to spend. Glad to hear the beach house allowed her to turn the page and made her already cushy life a lot more cushy. My only gripe is that she complained about her husband always being gone and that she had to retire from her work. There are plenty of models who work and have children successfully while their husbands have busy jobs. She had the connections to get work in la so idk why she wasn’t working. Perhaps she had carpool detail in between playtime with her friends. There are quite a few personal photos of her having a grand old time with these industry people. 

        What’s interesting is that she said she  “sacrificed” her  career for the children and now when they might need her most, she is entertaining films. Films are a lot more demanding than an “at the most” week photo shoot. Since she is “apparently” independently wealthy and Rupert is probably going to be paying out the big bucks, wonder why she is choosing this path?

      • Paulpoiret says:

        sock-puppetry, definition of.

      • meg says:

        Yes, if I recall she moved to LA at 6 months. Also, I believe only Atticus lived in LA at the time she and Rupert relocated. Another brother and sister have joined them since. Liberty did sacrifice work. eg She was in the 2004 Pirelli calendar, was offered 2005, declined because of the baby. But you’re right, she had plenty of industry friends in LA, she wasn’t stuck in the house all day. lol @the cushy beach house. It’s actually a trailor – albeit a very nice trailor. I know the neighborhood and it’s more homey, more of a friendly feel than the gated Hills house. Better for the social butterfly type Liberty is. ugh I’m not her representative but to play devil’s advocate, I think the change in lifestyle was extreme. Previously, she had been the ‘star’ of the relationship. Suddenly Rupert’s career took center stage. She was heavily pregnant when they moved, too. I’ve heard stories of a bit of post-partum with the 2nd and Rupert busy busy busy. Just an uncomfortable adjustment period all around.

        I agree that Liberty’s children need her so much now. I imagine her thinking before the scandal was that with both kids in school fulltime she could devote more energy to her career. Common strategy for many moms. What her professional plans are now is anyone’s guess. I wouldn’t assume the Radar Online “source” is accurate.

        I’ve never met Liberty, just know people who have worked with her. One thing I have heard consistantly is that she is VERY family oriented. Her own family is huge and operates like a small gypsy tribe. Ultra protective, close knit. I would not want to be in Rupert’s shoes when and if Atticus and Milo read him the riot act.

      • Beth says:

        Well I do feel bad for anyone that has to change their lifestyle but as a wife of a pilot in the military, I can’t muster up too much sympathy for her. See my husband travels and is busy, busy too but somehow I make it work just fine and don’t feel the need to sacrifice my goals. I knew what I signed up for and I assume she did too when  they decided to move to LA. Her whole “until lately my life was so difficult, look at what in gave up” interview came at a convenient time.  If she is as family oriented as you say, I would assume her jetting offf to film locations may not be in the best interest to her children, ESP since Rupert will still be directing. Maybe she can get Simon to babysit 😉

  15. Feebee says:

    What?… her husband cheated on her and suddenly she’s a talented actress worthy of being courted? Sow’s ear, silk purse and all that I suppose.

  16. Black Pearl says:

    OMG!!! I just went through some old pictures of Liberty from her modelling days and she is so BEAUTIFUL especially when she was young and just starting out, she’s not your typical blonde bombshell but she was very unique. I hope she gets something good from this whole mess..

  17. Emma says:

    I hope she keeps Rupert hanging for a long time while she finds herself a good man and then dump his ass when he thinks he might have a chance. It’s obvious that Kristen looks like Liberty but one he can control in order to feed his ego because she’s an insecure silly girl while the one he can’t control because she’s a fierce woman. Kick him to the curb. She should never have married beneath her. When you associate with trash, don’t be surprised when you get dirty.

  18. Sarah says:

    If I had a devious mind I’d say she and Rupert planned this as a way to raise her profile….

  19. Kosmos says:

    I’m kind of sorry to hear she isn’t leaving him and going back to England, and into modeling or films again. Once he pulled that, I don’t know, it was so disrespectful. He’s only begging for her hand again because he was caught, but otherwise, I think he would still be happily loving up KS. I wouldn’t trust him again if he can be ‘that’ drawn to a young actress on his set. Liberty, there will be many more on his sets to come.

  20. lena80 says:

    So some people are praising the fact (if true) that this woman is getting “fame” and job offers out of her husband’s affair with a young woman…Instead of leaving him for humiliating her, their children, and breaking their vows? What’s “good for her” about this. She should leave him and move on with her life and raise her children away from the nonsense. I think some of you need to check you moral compass. If this story is true, and I hope it’s not, then Liberty isn’t a victim in this situation but an opportunist, and not the type of opportunist that should be praised and admired…just my opinion.
