So, lots of you guys have been railing against the general public for railing against Kristen Stewart and her whole part in this affair thing, and you’re not the only one—Jodie Foster, Kristen’s long-time friend and co-worker, has come out (again) in support of Kristen, and offers a very refreshing and somewhat game-changing perspective on the whole Kristen Stewart! Cheating! Scandal! and it’s definitely worthy of the whole eleven hundred-plus characters that Foster doled out in defense of her girl Kristen.
From the Daily Beast:
We’ve all seen the headlines at the check-out counter. “Kristen Stewart Caught.” We’ve all thumbed the glossy pages here and there. “Kris and Rob a couple?” We all catch the snaps. “I like that dress. I hate the hair. Cute couple. Bad shoes.” There’s no guilt in acknowledging the human interest in public linens. It’s as old as the hills. Lift up beautiful young people like gods and then pull them down to earth to gaze at their seams. See, they’re just like us. But we seldom consider the childhoods we unknowingly destroy in the process.
I have been an actress since I was 3 years old, 46 years to date. I have no memories of a childhood outside the public eye. I am told people look to me as a success story. Often complete strangers approach me and ask, How have you stayed so normal, so well-adjusted, so private? I usually lie and say, “Just boring I guess.” The truth is, like some curious radioactive mutant, I have invented my own gothic survival tools. I have fashioned rules to control the glaring eyes. Maybe I’ve organized my career choices to allow myself (and the ones I truly love) maximum personal dignity. And, yes, I have neurotically adapted to the gladiator sport of celebrity culture, the cruelty of a life lived as a moving target. In my era, through discipline and force of will, you could still manage to reach for a star-powered career and have the authenticity of a private life. Sure, you’d have to lose your spontaneity in the elaborate architecture. You’d have to learn to submerge beneath the foul air and breathe through a straw. But at least you could stand up and say, I will not willfully participate in my own exploitation. Not anymore. If I were a young actor or actress starting my career today in the new era of social media and its sanctioned hunting season, would I survive? Would I drown myself in drugs, sex, and parties? Would I be lost?
I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me …
JUMP IN FOR THE REST!

Oh man, welcome to Kristen Stewart‘s Bummer Summer. It’s just one thing after another for her, isn’t it? The latest thing? It looks like she just got fired from being Snow White in the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. Total bummer.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Universal has decided to shelf its planned Snow White and the Huntsman sequel and is instead focusing on a solo Huntsman movie starring Chris Hemsworth. Kristen Stewart will not be invited to return if the follow-up goes forward.
Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the sequel to June’s Snow White, which starred Stewart, Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, is being reconceived as a spinoff movie. It’s unclear whether director Rupert Sanders will return, though one source with ties to the production says he will. However, screenwriter David Koepp, who had been hired to pen the continuation of the original film, is being settled out of his rich contract, according to sources, as the project is being transformed into something other than the movie that Koepp had been hired to write.
“The studio is currently exploring options to continue the franchise,” a Universal spokeswoman says.
On one hand, I get where they’re coming from with this. Everybody hates Kristen Stewart right now, and we haven’t been able to figure out if she’ll be able to make a comeback or not. I would imagine that nobody wants to be the first person to test that out. At the end of the day, it’s a business, and Kristen’s a pretty big risk right now. But on the other, more emotional hand, I think this really sucks. Especially if Rupert Sanders gets to come back and direct this movie.
But I do remember hearing that Chris Hemsworth was going to get his very own movie all about the Huntsman before the whole cheating scandal, and according to this article, it looks like the original plan was to to a true sequel to the first movie with Kristen and THEN do the Huntsman spinoff, so it’s not like they just pulled this idea out of thin air. And personally, I think I’d enjoy the Huntsman movie more than another one with Kristen. But still, what Kristen Stewart does with her vagina shouldn’t have this big of an impact on her career.
It’s a lot to consider, isn’t it?

According to him, in a word, ‘no’. Or, if you liked the Jon Stewart show‘s Robert Pattinson, a fitful of giggles.
No, I don’t think Robert Pattinson‘s been wallowing in anything other than maybe sympathy p-ssy, and especially not misery.
HLN’s ‘Showbiz Tonight’, Robert was peppered with questions about his alleged breakup with Kristen Stewart, citing that all of the rumors are “weird,” but neither affirming or negating whether or not these two knuckleheads have, indeed, broken up. Rob said, “Since the first ‘Twilight’ you enter this kind of realm where … you get stuff reported about you, and it’s weird.”
Well, no, now, I don’t necessarily know that it’s “weird,” but it’s definitely, definitely intriguing. Like, tomorrow’s interview with ‘Good Morning America’? Can you imagine just how giggly and weird that’s going to be? God how I love this man.

Let’s get through the facts first, all right, then we can discuss. Here’s what happened: there was a surfing contest last Thursday, and Lindsay Lohan and Kristen Stewart were both there. It looks like Kristen’s brother is into surfing, and I guess he was competing, but I have no idea why Lindsay was there. Surfers aren’t really known for being into meth, are they?
But anyway, the two ladies ran into each other again at a house party later that night. And that’s it. That’s where the story ends. Lindsay Lohan and Kristen Stewart were seen at a surfing contest and also a house party, and that’s all we know. So it’s up to us to fill in the blanks.
I imagine that Lindsay was just being Lindsay, wandering around aimlessly with her titties floppin’ every which way. But Kristen, she’s trying desperately to feel better, to feel normal, to feel something. She tried hanging out with her brother, but when that didn’t help, she found herself at some random house party, where she saw Lindsay Lohan. Kristen, being a human being with ears, had heard that Lindsay is all about the meth these days, and she thought maybe, just maybe, that Lindsay could help her numb the pain.
Or, for the more visual readers out there, Lindsay and Kristen were at the same party, and Kristen was like this:
And Lindsay saw her from across the room, and she roared her terrible roar and gnashed her terrible teeth, which looks like this:
And Kristen saw oodles and oodles of tiny pebbles fall out of Lindsay’s floppin’ lips, and when she moved closer, she saw that they weren’t pebbles at all, but little rocks of meth! So she looked up at Lindsay in wonder, which looks like this:
Lindsay told Kristen she could have some, but only if she promised to let her be a vampire in the next Twilight movie. When Kristen told her that there weren’t going to be anymore Twilight movies, Lindsay did this:
Kristen got scared and told Lindsay that they’d do another movie, just for her, and she perked up. She tucked her lips back in, ran to the bathroom, and came out looking like this:
Kristen didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, so she just decided to nibble on the meth pebbles that had fallen from Lindsay’s maw. And that’s what happened last Thursday night. Isn’t gossip fun?!

But why? Could it be because she’s finally getting to that stage in depression when you have to bathe because you can’t stand your own stench? Has Liberty Ross been sending her letters threatening a showdown that will take place sometime this week? Oh god, is she starting to get tired of her favorite comfort food?
None of that, you guys. No, Kristen Stewart is not excited about this week because this week, Robert Pattinson will be doing interviews to promote his new movie, Cosmopolis. And let’s not fool ourselves for one minute by thinking that he’s going to be able to avoid any questions about his heart-wrenching saga.
Kristen Stewart has been biting her nails over Robert Pattinson’s scheduled TV appearanceon The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
While K-Stew, 22, doesn’t believe R-Pattz will trash her on the show, which airs on Monday, August 13, Kristen is concerned that she could fall foul of the host’s sharp tongue.
She’s praying she won’t be the butt of the jokes because she’s hurting enough as it is.
“Kristin is very, very nervous about Robert’s interview with Jon Stewart on Monday,” a source close to the Twilight star revealed. “She’s confident that Robert, who has always been such a private person about his personal life, will keep quiet over the cheating scandal. But she does have some concerns that Stewart might poke fun at the situation in an attempt to get Robert to open up. While she has a sense of humor, this isn’t something she wants joked about. Kristen is hurting and doesn’t want her heartbreak poked fun at on TV. She’s crossing her fingers that Jon doesn’t go there and instead concentrates on promoting Robert’s new movie Cosmopolis,” the insider said.
It’s not like I’m completely unsympathetic to Kristen Stewart. I still don’t think that “everyone makes mistakes” applies here, and I still don’t think that “she’s just a kid, she doesn’t know any better.” But you know, if she was your average 22-year-old who decided to cheat on her boyfriend with a married dude, things would be way different. She’d still get some flack for it, and her choice would still be wrong, but she probably wouldn’t have had some creeper taking pictures of the actual cheating, and she wouldn’t have thousands of strangers calling her a slut. It must really, really suck to be Kristen Stewart right now.
So yeah, I get why she doesn’t want anyone to ask Rob about it. But that doesn’t mean that she didn’t do it in the first place, you know? It sounds like she’s saying “why can’t everyone just stop talking about that time that I cheated on my boyfriend with a married dude?” which is so silly. Like I said before, she’s not the worst celebrity that ever existed, but she’s not completely innocent either. She doesn’t deserve hate, but if she can’t stand the gossip, then she might need to consider a new career.

And come on. If you were Kristen Stewart, wouldn’t you be afraid to show your vapid little face in public, too? Yeah, what she did was “common” by today’s standards, unfortunately, but it doesn’t detract from the fact that the entire situation was interpreted as desperate, sad, and by virtue, pathetic from all angles.
The 22-year-old actress was originally planning to walk the red carpet for the film version of Jack Kerouac’s classic novel on August 16 – but with her Brit co-star Tom Sturridge, a close pal of Robert Pattinson, already scheduled to appear she wanted to avoid the awkwardness her appearance would bring.
Kristen, an avid Kerouac fan, also doesn’t want her attendance distracting from the film itself, which she is very proud of working on.
“Kristen won’t be doing the red carpet for On The Road – she’s too ashamed to show her face in public right now,” a source revealed.
After everything that has been said, and in light of the revelations that she cheated on Robert with director Rupert Sanders, she’s running scared at the moment. There’s also the dilemma of standing next to her co-star in the movie, Tom Sturridge. He’s very close to Rob and Kristen thinks it would be awkward for her to promote the movie on the red carpet alongside him.”
I’m sure that the whole Robert Pattinson-on-Good Morning America thing has positively nothing to do with it, right? And speaking of which, I’m hearing that the interview is going to be no-holds-barred, too, which is entirely contrary to what I initially thought. Hollywood Life claims to have exclusive sources saying that any and all Kristen Stewart questions are “on the table,” and that the interviewers have complete access to ask whatever they want (which is guess is a moot point, because that doesn’t exactly mean he’s got to answer their inquiries).
It just gets “better” and “better,” doesn’t it?
