Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders owe an apology to a handful of people
HollywoodNews.com: It could be argued that director Rupert Sanders and actress Kristen Stewart owe an apology to a handful of people. Obviously they are in respective deep trouble with Robert Pattinson and Liberty Ross. They certainly owe an apology to Saunders’s two children, and perhaps some kind of apology to certain studio executives at Universal and Summit/Lionsgate, since their allegedly adulterous actions will certainly have some kind of impact on the respect fortunes of Snow White and the Huntsman (with a sequel now in doubt) and Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn part II (which may well increase in interest ala Mr. and Mrs. Smith).
But other than that, neither of these people owe any of us a damn thing. I am less troubled by the apparent adultery (or attempted adultery?) than I am by Kristen Stewart’s public apology, seemingly specifically intended for Mr. Pattinson but released out into the open for all to see as a kind of public mea culpa. I don’t blame Ms. Stewart for this instant press release so much as I blame a media/popular culture that demanded a public apology for an inherently private indiscretion.
