In July 2012, Robert Pattinson's real life and reel life sweetheart, Twilight star, Kristen Stewart was caught canoodling with 'the married man.' Snow White and The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders who is married to model Liberty Ross was seen with Stewart in what can be termed as extremely intimate poses in a car and over the bridge where the two were holidaying away from the gaze of the world. And when the pictures hit the internet the entire world fell into shock.
No one could believe that such a high profile actress would be so stupid as to have an affair, let alone carry it out in public! Later, Kristen made a public apology to Robert that consisted of her saying he was her world and she loved him with every inch of her being. Robert stayed quiet throughout the entire ordeal and despite his heartache has manged to stay in an on and off relationship with Kristen back.
Kristen handled the scandal pretty well, even though she recently confessed that she just wanted to stay in her hotel room and never face the world, and press, again. She came out with her head held high and it seems to have paid off. She didn't get egged at the Twilight premiere and her career has never been in better shape.
