I was pretty pumped to see Snow White and the Huntsman, and I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but I did go see it. I really, really enjoyed it. Like, a lot. I thought it was a really fun movie, and I even thought that Kristen Stewart did sort of an ok job throughout most of the movie, which, for me, is a pretty glowing review of her acting. I remember thinking “someone needs to give that director an award for figuring out how to make Kristen Stewart watchable,” but now I realize that she probably only did such a good job (for her) because she went through filming looking forward to tasting some forbidden fruit at the end the day. And that’s sad.
But before news of Kristen and Rupert’s affair broke, there was talk of a Snow White sequel. Afterwards, most of us assumed it was never going to happen, but why would anyone miss out on such a great opportunity? The added publicity that the movie would get from the cheating scandal would be phenomenal, and that’s why, I assume, both Kristen and Rupert want to be a part of it.
Rupert’s wife, Liberty Ross, meanwhile? She says no. She says no hard:
Rupert Sanders has been told by wife Liberty Ross to forget about directing Snow White and the Huntsman 2 if he wants to win her back, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. The British model gave the stern warning to the movie director in a desperate bid to save their marriage after revelations he had an affair with Kristen Stewart .
Sanders, 41, was originally lined up to direct the sequel after it became a box office success. However, he is yet to sign an agreement with Universal Pictures who are considering putting someone else in the director’s chair.
“Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman,” a source revealed. “They are trying to work things out after he was caught having an affair, and that is one of the sticking points. She just doesn’t want him to ever work with Kristen again. Rupert is obviously disappointed because Snow White and the Huntsman was his directorial debut, and he had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent reviews. But he knows his actions were inexcusable, and he’s going to have to bite the bullet and listen to his wife on this one.
“Also, when Rupert signed up for Snow White and the Huntsman, he didn’t know he was going to get a chance to direct a sequel. His contract with Universal was only for one movie. It was a verbal agreement that he was to take the reigns on the sequel, nothing was ever signed. Kristen, as the film’s lead, will get preference over Rupert and Universal will just find another director,” the source said.
Is Rupert Sanders honestly dumb enough to think that he could just go do the sequel with no problems? What, would he pinky promise Liberty and say “no cheating, swearsies”? What a jackass. And as for Kristen … I don’t even know. I never understood how she got a job in the first place, so I’m not really the best person to speculate on how the rest of her career will go.
Would you go see Snow White and the Huntsman 2?

From Radar Online:
Rob Pattinson was crushed when his girlfriend Kristen Stewart admitted she had a fling with her married director and he promptly fled the house that they shared, but the anger has begun to thaw and the Twilight stars have finally started talking to each other again.
Kristen and her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders were photographed in a series of shocking clinches on July 17 and after they were caught they both apologized, Rupert to his wife Liberty Ross and Kristen to Rob.
Kristen’s camp has said that it was a oneitime indiscretion, but that doesn’t seem to matter to her boyfriend. He ignored her “tearful texts” and multiple phone calls, but finally relented and has slowly started to speak to her again, but it may be too late.
“Rob just isn’t going to be able to get beyond the cheating – one time or not,” a source who knows both of them told People magazine.
Oh well, that’s just great then. These two are talking. Does that mean, by next week, they’ll be back to normal again? Like I told you guys before, I was pulling for them to get over this initially, but it’s just not happening for me this time. I actually don’t think I want them to get back together, because all of this has done pretty much just one thing for me: it’s showed me really just how selfish and desperate Kristen can be, and that’s just not attractive. Or appealing.

If this is supposed to be some kind of clever ploy in order to make Kristen and Rupert look all hounded and pursued and tortured, and thus, sympathetic to the public’s eye, I have to say—it’s just not going to f-cking happen. It’s not, OK? So, like, don’t even try. From Fox News:
Photos of “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart canoodling with Rupert Sanders, the very married director of her last film “Snow White and the Huntsman,” have likely fetched “at least $250,000, maybe $300,000 on the high end” for the paparazzi agency involved, one expert tells FOXNews.com.
Bauer said he heard that US Weekly assigned FameFlynet to follow Stewart and Sanders on a tip that the two were getting busy behind closed doors, or as it looks now, even out of doors. “From what I heard, it was an assignment, the magazine was actually working the story,” explained Bauer. “(The story) didn’t come from the photographers, it was the other way around: it went editorial to photo, as opposed to photo to editorial.”
A top celebrity editor agreed with Bauer’s scenario, telling FOXNews.com: “From what I understand, Us Weekly had been on the story for a while. They had a tip that Kristen was cheating on Rob with her director, so not only did they have photogs on Kristen, they had photogs on Rupert as well.”
Scott Cosman, owner of FameFlyNet, told the Los Angeles Times that a lone photographer was trailing Stewart as she met Sanders in her Mini Cooper on July 17. The photographer did not recognize Sanders, but knew one thing for sure–that the scruffy, middle-aged man was definitely not Stewart’s boyfriend and “Twilight” costar, Robert Pattinson.
In any case, Us Weekly made no apologies for their scoop.
Man. Can you even imagine being the photographer lucky enough to catch Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders, as it said in other places in the original Fox News article, “pawing one another like teenagers”? Because for one, gross. And two, what assholes! Honestly, the more we hear about this story, the worse it sounds for everyone involved—any by “everyone,” I mean “those who matter,” which in this particular case would be Robert and Rupert’s wife, Liberty. All I know is that each and every detail that emerges only paints a worse and worse picture of what’d really been going on.
It’s getting bad for me, guys. I don’t even know if I’ll be able to watch ‘Twilight’ ever again. I was even planning on re-reading the series, just for the hell of it, before all this happened. Gosh.

His world shattered, Robert Pattinson turned to someone he knew he could count on: Reese Witherspoon.
Immediately after learning his girlfriend of three years, Kristen Stewart, had cheated on him with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, Pattinson asked his friend and Water for Elephants costar if he could crash at her tranquil estate in Ojai, Calif.
So sad. Here’s a recent photos of Reese‘s “tranquil estate,” which was recently featured in Elle Decor:
Not a bad place to heal a broken heart, right?
All I know is that it’s a good, good thing that Rob‘s real friends are showing him the meaning of commitment and assistance, because come on. Who the f-ck is Kristen going to go crawling to in order to hide away from the public eye? Her ex-boyfriend Michael Angarano? Come on. No comparison. Case in point: Kristen Stewart’s career is probably older.
Check out the rest of the photos in the gallery.

Did you guys remember that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson adopted a puppy together last year? The dog’s name is Bear, and from what I can tell, he’s Rob and Kristen’s child. Kristen even gave an interview a few months ago during promotions for Snow White and the Huntsman (ahem) where she essentially called Bear her baby.
Here he is:
What an incredibly sweet face, right? It’s pretty easy to see why Rob wants custody:
While Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart didn’t have any kids together, RadarOnline.com exclusively reports that the fractured pair are embroiled in a bitter custody dispute, as they battle over their beloved adopted pooch!
On the pet front, Kristen, 22, will keep her cat,Max, but 26-year-old Robert wants Bear – the mixed mutt rescue they adopted from a high-kill shelter in New Orleans.
But K-Stew won’t give up Bear without a fight, she’s especially fond of the dog after helping him fight the potentially fatal disease Parvo.
“After Rob moved his things out of their Los Angeles apartment, he then told Kristen he wanted Bear,” an insider said.
“She was heartbroken – they adopted Bear together and she always felt that he was their little baby. But Rob was so hurt by Kristen’s actions he decided that he wants the dog to help him get over what happened. After all, a dog is a man’s best friend and Bear is such a good companion. However, Kristen won’t give up Bear in a hurry. She helped Rob save Bear from Parvo disease, which nearly took its life when it was a puppy. She wants joint custody – and it could get a little messy,” the insider revealed.
According to the close source, K-Stew and R-Patz were also looking into the possibility of adopting another rescue before their split – they were desperate for Bear to have a companion.
“Before news of the affair broke, Robert and Kristen were looking into the possibility of adopting another dog. They were desperate for a play pal for Bear and scoured petfinder.com, as well as a few high-kill shelters in Los Angeles. But it seems that’s out of the question now,” the insider said.
And the rage for Kristen Stewart continues. Did she even bother to think about poor Bear while she was tearing apart her family?

Following a new report in British newspaper The People (which is owned by the Mirror and not related to PEOPLE magazine) that director Rupert Sanders’s affair with Kristen Stewart was more than a one-time fling, a source very close to his wife Liberty Ross and her family tells PEOPLE all quotes from that story are false.
“Contrary to inaccurate reports, neither Liberty Ross nor any member of her family has spoken to the media,” the source tells PEOPLE. “Quotes that are being attributed to the Ross family have been completely fabricated.”
The People report quotes a man purporting to be Liberty’s brother, Leopold Ross, who says, “[Rupert and Kristen's affair took place] from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week.”
Editors at The People stand by their story. Sources have maintained to PEOPLE that the fling between the actress and director was not drawn out.
Regardless, Stewart’s love, Robert Pattinson, “just isn’t going to be able to get past the cheating – one time or not,” a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. “It’s something she always knew he could never tolerate.”
Since news of their infidelity broke, Stewart, 22, and Sanders, 41, both issued public apologies, and sources reported the duo had only been intimate once. Meanwhile in Los Angeles, Pattinson, 26, and Stewart are not speaking to each other and have both left the home they once shared, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Yeah, I don’t really believe that. I believe that Kristen really was cheating for months. Just look at the pictures: is that really how that works? If you’re planning on having a “momentary indiscretion” with your married director, do you really go for a drive, find a nice scenic location, and then cuddle for a while before he goes down on you in your car? I would imagine that such a quick lapse of judgement would be more like “quick, let’s drive to the woods and bang in the dark” as opposed to “let’s cuddle in broad daylight and then kiss each other all over, still in broad daylight,” wouldn’t you?
But regardless, I’m with Rob on his zero tolerance policy: it really doesn’t matter if it was one time or many, many times, cheating is cheating, and now Kristen will have to wander the world knowing that she screwed it all up with this perfect man. It’s a big load to carry, friends.
