Rupert Sanders Apologizes for Cheating with Kristen Stewart

Rupert Sanders Apologizes for Cheating with Kristen Stewart

Director Rupert Sanders has also released a public apology over his cheating scandal with his Snow White and the Huntsman actress Kristen Stewart.

“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” Rupert said in a statement Wednesday (via People). “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”

Hours earlier, Kristen released a public apology to her boyfriend of three years, Robert Pattinson.

Rupert, 41, is married to British model Liberty Ross, 33, and they have two children, ages 7 and 5.

Yesterday, Liberty tweeted a Marilyn Monroe quote — “sometimes bad things fall apart so better things can fall together” — before deleting her Twitter account. She appeared as a young Kristen‘s mother in Huntsman.

    What a homewrecker!!! Now it all makes sense, her lack of talent and all of these great opportunities, she’s a disguting human being. I’m not a fan of Patterson but he seems like a very nice guy who loves her and he certainly doesn’t deserve this. Good bye twilight!

    What a ***** of an apology. Cheaters never prosper. Shame on him. Shame on Kristen! How can you do that to Rob, Kristen? Rob has even alluded to you being his happy ever after –meaning he would want to marry you one day! You are a home-wrecker, Kristen. And that highbrow attitude or disposition of yours is old. Shame on you again and that dirty dog director.

    Awkward…. I actually didn’t see this coming from Kristen. But, that just shows that you don’t really know much about these stars. Even if it sometimes feel like that, because I’ve read and seen a lot of interviews with her.
    Oh well…Very bad thing to do to his wife and kids and to Rob:-(

    They’re only sorry they were caught. We saw the pics! You guys weren’t devastated when you were sucking face! And seriously? That was not a one time thing at all. Obviously something was brewing in May, when they were having dinner in Germany. MONTHS. And now you’re so sorry? Poor Rob, Wife, and Kids! But more so the wife and the kids. Kristen, you’re a home wrecker and I have lost all respect for you.

    Only sorry you got caught, worried about your movie career, and the new twilight movie. Pathetic. You’re a terrible person.

    This is what happens when you are in a relationship, but don’t spend time together…every one is saying their busy, but have enough time to hang out with other people. this is why i stay single. if u go two days without seeing or talking to each other, it’s not worth it.

    Why would you think it would be any different than Jolie-Pitt-Aniston? People are still blaming Angelina 7 or 8 years after it happened. Aniston is still milking the gravy train for publicity. Brad just seems to live his life without the ire that Angelina inspires.

    Rocky Says:


    Let’s not just blame him. There were two cheating here. Why he’d want to kiss someone who never looks like she takes a bath over his beautiful wife is a mystery. BOTH of them were wrong. Lucky Rob’s not married to her.

    I think this is going to be exposed as not just a one-off thing but a full-blown affair that went on for months. There are reports that these two were out to dinner together and cozy on set. Don’t be surprised if this guy leaves his wife for Kristin and they end up together. Kristin and Rob hare history and any relationship salvaged will probably be for the sake of their movie.

    He is more to blame than Stewart. He is the big adult here. It’s almost unlawful what he did. No matter what at her age, she’s gotta be somewhat naive and he took advantage of that. He’s a slime that thinks with his you-know-what.

    @bizarre: To bring Brad & Angie in this at this point is stupid. They had feelings for one another but allegedly did not consummate until after the separation. I think they had more discretion than these two. This is alleged of course, because YOU and I don’t really know what happened, do we?

    dana Says:


    Agree. But, somehow still think is a PR stunt. Like, she managed to be in a relationship with R.Patz for so long and not to be discovered by the papps, no pics of the kissing and now, all of a sudden…Strange.

    Barbara Says:

    He’s an idiot. He has a beautiful wife and children and he cheats with a girl half his age? I don’t excuse Kristen, it was a stupid thing to do, especially since the guy is married, but in many respects she’s still a kid and this guy is in his 40′s. This is mostly on him, he’s old enough to know better and he has a wife and two children. He should have kept it in his pants. Having said that I think his wife can do a lot better than him.

    It’s hard to believe that the one and only time they hooked up they got caught. You know what they say about roaches and “for every one you see….” Besides this is not her first time playing the cheater – can you say pattern? Both of them are selfish scum with self serving apologies. It’s called self control and respect…get some.

  72. 72
    Jenna Says:

    I don’t think we can really compare this to Brad, Angelina and Jennifer. They are two completely different situations. For one, they’re all closer in age then these two. Angelina didn’t cheat on her boyfriend of many years like Kristen did. And there were no children involved. Yes, Angelina may have been the other woman but Brad has stated that his marriage wasn’t blissful when this happened. I’m not condoning cheating, but these are not the same situation. Brad and Angelina were two consenting adults that fell in love on set whle Brad was married. Kristen and Rupert both fooled around on their spouses while the man who is much older than her is married and has children. Angelina and Brad are still together, I doubt Kristen and Rupert really find their relationship to be worth it to endure this kind of press. Not the same situation what-so-ever.

    WHAT? How bout the man should respect his wife and never go there in the first place. Respect the family he created with his wife and not blame the little girl that “seduced” him. Don’t give me that crap. “A man will only go as far as the woman is willing to go” THAT’S HORSE ****! they are both to blame here and it’s not her fault any more than it’s his.

  77. 77
    solecito Says:

    @Jenna: There is truth in what you say. I guess I’m talking from my point of view, I would never put myself in a dangerous situation that could end up in me being unfaithful.

    reeven Says:

    Brad and Jennifer were separated before Angie, and they had problems.

    Rupert and his wife were recently married, have children together, and were a happy couple.
    Angelina and Brad fell in love, this was just lust or a stupidity from both
    so nop, no the same.

    Brad and Jennifer were not seperated before the wh*re Jolie came in, and Jolie t(he twice divorced) already cheated on her 1st husband with Mike Jagger she slept with him than left while she was married, he wrote it on his book, and he is not twice her age he is 1000 her age, heck she slept with her mom’s boyfriend when she was only 14 yo, i think no one can get into the level of whorness and trashiness that Jolie did.

    kristen may not be a kid but she’s young and apparently don’t give a f**** about ppl emotions, while sanders is 41 (he could clearly be her dad, age wise i mean) and is married and father of 2.. cheating is a choice, it was both their choice, and it doesn’t make them great ppl.

    take your kids, punch him in the face, get your $$$ and run woman!!

Seriously the sh*t storm that is going to follow will be hard to defuse with a meaningless apology as*shole!! — i feel so sorry for his kids. his 7 year old will understand and that’s so incredibly sad. those twilight idiots defending her need to shut the fu*ck up or grow up.

    Best comment ever. People worship Brangelina and they just did the exact same thing! Worse: they did not even have the honesty to confirm the rumor was true and apologize. They kept lying, denying it and 1000 ” humanitarian” missions and 5 kids later people treat them like the “creme de la creme”, the “A list of the A list”, “Saint Angie and Brad the Holy Ghost”…please give me a break, just like Angie, Kristen will just get more fame and more money! Period!

  98. 98
    Annie Says:

    Not true. Jennifer Aniston refered to Angelina’s act as “uncool” because Brad and her were still together, living under the same roof. Don’t even make up fake stories about them being separated. Why do you think people were so outraged. Angelina is a homewrecker as much as Kristen. The truth hurts but it is what it is.

    He is the most pathetic excuse for a man. He is a predator. He is her boss. I can just see how he groomed her to satisfy is own loser midlife crisis. He is the one with 20 years experience and should never have touched her. I have been where she is in that my “boss” made me feel like I was the best “woman” ever and all he was doing was using a 22 year old because his own wife couldn’t stand him anymore. I was completely brainwashed and naive. She is too. For all of her tough talk she is a kid. If she was my daughter I would go and kick that balding loser in the balls for touching my child. He is a perv and I hope his wife dumps him…

  110. 110
    well Says:

    i kinda think it was ok for kristen to cheat on rob just not with a married man…but she seemed attracted to rupert like a little crush. rob might be a nice guy but there is no excuse for living together and not being married. money was not an obstacle so they shouldn’t have been living together, unless they were only roommates.

    it hurts their image if their relationship was fake and only for the sake of publicity. so i think its ok to blow the cover on that like this. but it would have been smarter to wait until the film hit the theaters to break the news that their pseudo relationship was over. or till one of them met someone else.

  111. 111
    well Says:

    what kristen did was dumb….but rwhat rupert did was dumber. he is older and should have known better. it is easier to forgive a young 22-year old woman rather than a 40 year old married man. then again the wife might forgive because it was after all an immature fling. consisting of kissing only. but she shoudl be wary of him because he was willing to take advantage of someone that young. even if kristen is the one who came onto him. he is the mature one and should have known better. he should have been doing the mature thinking for her. and if she didn’t relent he should have told his wife about it.
