Not to be rude, or, well, not to be all the way rude, but Rupert Sanders is so creepy, right? He just gives off these awful creeper vibes, and it’s not just because he cheated on his wife with a woman almost half his age, or because he was the director of a film who had an affair with his leading actress. No, I feel like if I had known who Rupert Sanders was before this whole thing went down, I’d still be like “hey, weirdo.” Is that fair to say?
If you don’t get those same vibes, go ahead and read this interview, then let me know if you changed your mind:
When news broke that Rupert Sanders had a tryst with Kristen Stewart, cheating on his model wife Liberty Ross, many wondered what would draw Rupert away from his gorgeous wife. As a interview detailing his first impression of Kristen, given before word of the affair was out, has just been released, we might understand his decision a little more.
Rupert tells Vogue UK, of his first impression, “She’d burnt her lower pelvis area, quite low down. She was bandaging a bad burn there, in her very tight jeans, with a Camel clamped between her teeth. That was my very first image of her.”
Beyond the very provocative first meeting, he says, “She’s got this masculine edge. She’s like this beautiful tomboy or something. What surprised me most when I met Kristen was how unlike the character of Bella Swan she was in real life.”
“She was so tough, so grown up. She was exactly the modern badass version of Snow White that I was looking for. I wanted that young, spirited, rebellious warrior, and she epitomized all of that,” he adds.
Perhaps giving a warning that Sanders wanted more than just a professional relationship he compared Kristen and his wife Liberty together, with the 22 year-old winning out as “royalty” in comparison – OUCH! He went on: “There’s a look they share. Kristen is almost like royalty the way she understands what she has to do, in the way that she has to learn to compartmentalize… Well, Lib’s quite ‘regal’ or something as well.”
Ok, so the first time Rupert saw Kristen, she was bandaging a vag burn? Awesome. Oh, and she was a “beautiful tomboy” who was “so grown up.” Creeper. And oh, that comparison he made between Kristen and his wife. That’s just awesome. I’m still not buying that Kristen was an innocent victim, based on the pictures and basically everything Kristen has ever said about herself, but man. What a giant, gross old creepy creeper.
