Kristen Stewart’s primary goal in life is to continuing making movies and for her characters not to be defined by her personal life success or failures, but that doesn’t mean she enjoyed being target practice for months. In fact, she kind of feels bad about riling everyone up and causing so many Twilight fans mental anguish after she publically cheated on boyfriend and co-star Rob Pattinson.
Speaking to Newsweek, the actress offered up a vague mea culpa for how things went down.
"I apologize to everyone for making them so angry. It was not my intention."
In the aftermath of the scandal, she holed up by herself for awhile. It was apparently more comfortable to stay inside rather than go out and face the general public, but over the last few weeks, she’s started to turn things around and live again. It’s probably helped that Rob seems to have at least partially forgiven her, though the two still haven’t released any kind of public statement saying they’re back together.
What Kristen did was obviously a very poor decision. She strayed from the man that she loves and may have wrecked someone else’s marriage, but at the end of the day, she’s still a girl in her early twenties. I’m not sure many of us could count on one hand the number of friends we know who cheated on a partner sometime in their early twenties.
Here’s to hoping Kristen never becomes target practice again.
