Twilight Kristen Stewart Apologizes for Cheating With Director

They say never mix business with pleasure, but it seems actress Kristen Stewart is a repeat offender.

Though romantically tied to her vampire beau and 'Twilight' leading man Robert Pattison, reports hit the web Tuesday that the star also known as Bella, cheated on him.

Not just with a no-name but (married and twice-her-age) director Rupert Sanders, who she worked with closely in her recent summer flick 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'

In an interview prior to the film's release, Sanders told VIBE in April that Stewart is "one of the greater actors of our generation." Excerpts of the chat below.

With Kristen Stewart's obvious connection to the “Twilight” series, do you think that people are going to be surprised by her acting skills as Snow White?

I don’t think they’ll be surprised by her acting skills because I think she’s very good in the “Twilight” films. She’s also very good in the film that I had seen her: “Into The Wild,” “Panic Room,” you know she’s one of the greater actors of our generation and rightly so and I think her performance in this really shows that. I think people get really lost in the Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and that means she plays the character really well. Most people think that’s a trait of hers but when you meet her, you realize that she’s definitely not the girl from the “Twilight” movie.

She definitely gives off that vibe when you see her at award shows but I can see how she took a different approach to the Snow White character.

The public Kristen is very different from the private Kristen. The way she is on set comes easily to her, she’s certainly not herself in that environment. I feel she’s most at home when she’s on a film set with the crew around her and she’s doing what she loves. That’s when you see the most illuminated version of her. She’s a funny girl, she’s a lot of fun. She’s a very spirited being.

What was your favorite part about working with her?

Just being able to see that come to life and the decisions she made on a daily basis. She really helped me find my motive true north of that character. Snow White in her eyes is what really brought that to me and that’s the reason I casted her. She has that. She’s full of life.

The 41-year-old British director issued an apology to his wife and family Wednesday in a statement to People. "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family," Sanders said. "My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together."

Turns out Sanders' wife, model Liberty Ross, (with whom he has two children), made an appearance in 'Huntsman' as a young Stewart's mother (the irony!). Before deleting her Twitter account, she posted the Marilyn Monroe quote, "sometimes bad things fall apart so better things can fall together."

Kristen Stewart then issued an apology to People: "I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry."

Chanel Lewis Sentenced To Life In Prison For Murder Of Queens Jogger

A New York judge sentenced the man accused of sexually assaulting and murdering a Queens jogger to life in prison Tuesday, (April 23) despite there being accusations of a coerced confession and jury misconduct.

Cheers broke out inside a courtroom when 22-year-old Chanel Lewis learned his fate. He spoke briefly in court apologizing to the victim's family. “I’m innocent,” Lewis said. “I’m sorry for the family’s loss, but I didn’t do this.”

The victim, Karina Vetrano, 30, went jogging on a park trail in Howard Beach, Queens in August 2016 when prosecutors say she was sexually assaulted and brutally murdered. Her body was discovered in August 2016 by her father.

Lewis' sentencing was initially postponed amid accusations of jury misconduct. However, Judge Michael Aloise decided Monday to move forward with the sentencing. Lewis' first trial resulted in a hung jury and his defense team stated that a desire to swiftly put the case away led to Tuesday's sentencing.

“While there is no denying that Karina Vetrano’s death is tragic and that her family and friends suffered a great loss, every aspect of this case – from the police investigation to jury deliberations – was propelled by a desire to convict at all costs,” The Legal Aid Society, which represents Lewis, said in a statement.

Lewis' defense argued his two-taped confessions were coerced and there wasn't enough DNA evidence linking him to the crime. During the confession, Lewis reportedly said he was upset at his neighbor for playing loud music and when he saw Vetrano he "lost it."

He said he strangled the jogger but didn't sexually assault her. His defense team argued the DNA evidence wasn't gathered properly and didn't match the victim's injuries.

Alabama Deputy On Leave After Comments About Gay Teen's Suicide

An Alabama deputy has been placed on leave after making insensitive comments on social media about a teen who committed suicide after allegedly being bullied for his sexual orientation.

According to reports, the officer has been with the Madison County Sheriff's Office in Huntsville for 12 years and sparked backlash for referring to LGBTQ qualms as "a fake movement which requires no special attention but by persons with an altered ego and fake agenda."

"Liberty. Guns. Bible. Trump. BBQ. That’s my kind of LGBTQ. I’m seriously offended that there is such a thing such as this movement," the deputy allegedly wrote in a Facebook post. "Society cannot and should not accept this behavior. I have a right to be offended and will always be offended by this fake movement which requires no special attention but by persons with an altered ego and fake agenda.”

The law enforcement officer defended his statement as freedom of speech before it was taken down. It was made in reference to 15-year-old Nigel Shelby who took his own life Thursday (April 18) after being bullied for being gay.

In a statement, Monday, the Madison County Sheriff's Office revealed a deputy had been placed on leave, while Local sheriff Kevin Turner offered kind words to the friends and family of Nigel Shelby.

Turner said: “Bullying of any group or person in or outside of schools is unacceptable, and I welcome any and all efforts to raise awareness to bullying and bring bullying to a stop. The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is proud of the community support and engagement we have received over the years, and we look forward to growing those community partnerships.”
