Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders (plus Robert Pattinson and Liberty Ross) in good company. (Image: Kristen Stewart as Marylou, On the Road.) "Robert Pattinson moves out." "Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart shed tears over cheating." "Charlize Theron Furious with Kristen Stewart for Cheating." "Can the Kristen Stewart-Robert Pattinson Romance Be Saved?" "Kristen Stewart branded a 'homewrecker.'" "Kristen Stewart Never Had Sex With Rupert Sanders, Sources Claim." "Katy Perry Gets Cozy In A Bikini With Robert Pattinson." WTF about that last one?
By now, even the Huli wigmen of Papua New Guinea are wondering: Will Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson remain together? Will there be a Snow White and the Huntsman 2, with Rupert Sanders at the helm? How will Summit Entertainment / Lionsgate organize the Breaking Dawn Part 2 promo? Will the scandal help or hinder the Breaking Dawn 2 box office? Were Stewart and Pattinson ever actually a couple or was it all publicity for the Twilight movies? How could (or why would) the very private Kristen Stewart get caught with Rupert Sanders in a public place, when her relationship with Robert Pattinson has remained a very private affair?
Kristen Stewart Rupert Sanders cheating scandal: tabloid media at play
Anonymous "friends" of the two couples, public apologies, and off-the-cuff tweets have been providing online and supermarket tabloids and tabloid-wannabes --and the world's consumers of raw sewage – with purported details about how Kristen Stewart felt ("devastated"), how Robert Pattinson reacted ("angry" and "heartbroken"), how Rupert Sanders apologized ("utterly distraught"), how Liberty Ross was caught off guard ("wow"). [See also: Kristen Stewart Rupert Sanders cheating scandal nonsense.]
Well, never mind the fact that whatever happened/is happening between Stewart and Sanders and Pattinson and Ross is their business. And that very few people – perhaps only those involved – actually knew/knows what really went/is going on. And why.
Now, from a historical viewpoint, what matters (and what's fascinating) is that the film quartet, particularly Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders – the "immoral ones" – are in excellent company.
On the next couple of pages (please see link to next post below) you'll find a brief sample of major Hollywood scandals throughout the decades. We're talking top-line talent here, most of whom were able to resume their lives and careers (well, at least their careers) unharmed. Some, in fact, became even bigger stars because of the scandals.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson movies to benefit from scandal?
As for the current to-do, expect huge grosses for Breaking Dawn Part 2, the final installment in the Twilight movie franchise that turned Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson into household names around the world. And, if it does indeed get made, expect huge grosses for Snow White and the Huntsman 2 as well, especially if Rupert Sanders gets to direct it and Kristen Stewart returns as the titular heroine. Walter Salles' On the Road, which will reportedly open later this year, should benefit from the scandal, too, as Stewart plays a free spirit sandwiched (quite literally, it seems) between two men. Heck, perhaps even Robert Pattinson's upcoming Cosmopolis will benefit from the media furor – not to mention the underrated Bel Ami, in which Pattinson (beautifully) plays a man cheating on just about everybody and which comes out on DVD on August 7, six days before the New York premiere of Cosmopolis.
Now, beware. Regarding all those "friends" and "insider" stories alleging new revelations about the inner workings of the Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart-Rupert Sanders-Liberty Ross quartet, an insider who also happens to be an intimate friend and confidante to all (or most) involved told us: "Believe all those tales if you're a sick fuck with no life, and you're very, very, very stupid." The anonymous confidante added that those taking the moral high ground in the matter "should take a good, hard look in the mirror before they start judging anyone else's supposed peccadilloes" and that "the first to start moralizing and pointing fingers are invariably the biggest, filthiest, most disgusting hypocrites."
