Ok, so I was just as appalled and shocked as anyone else when Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, but seriously -- can't this poor girl catch a break now that the scandal is behind her?
I mean, it was pretty understandable that immediately after the Rupert thing went down, Kristen was hit with a whole slew of other cheating rumors, but now that it's almost five months later, you'd think the accusations would have died down. (Rob forgave her, so why can't everyone else?)
Instead, it seems like the claims about her hooking up with other men keep getting crazier and crazier -- and now there's new speculation that she slept with Sean Penn to land her role in Into the Wild.
I know, insane right? And what's even nuttier is how some people have arrived at the conclusion that she slept her way into the movie. Somehow they're reading more into this statement she made about getting a part in the film:
After I did a reading, we met again like a week later and I played a song for him. I botched it so badly, it was awful. I learned ‘Blackbird’ on guitar, but it was difficult to sing at the same time. It was very embarrassing, but he gave me the part anyway. He said he wanted me to be in the movie he just didn’t know in what capacity yet. Then he called me and said, ‘Hey you want to do this thing?’ I was like, ‘Jesus Christ, are you kidding me?’
It's probably the "he gave me the part anyway" bit that is leading some to believe that Kristen and Sean did the horizontal limbo, but c'mon -- would anyone really have jumped to that conclusion if it weren't for the mistake she made with Rupert Sanders?
Because anyway you look at it -- that's all their hookup really was. A mistake. A mistake that plenty of other people have made many times in the past, because all people make mistakes.
Unfortunately, when you're someone as famous as Kristen Stewart, you apparently aren't allowed to make mistakes, and if you do, you'll never live them down.
Just because she hooked up with Rupert doesn't mean she got busy with every other male she ever came in contact with! Why won't anyone cut her a little slack? I mean, there have even been reports saying she may break up Ben Affleck's marriage simply by starring in an upcoming film with him. (Really?)
Geez. Maybe Kristen should just go crawl in a hole for the next couple of years or something, and maybe by then people will forget about what happened and give her another chance.
Either that, or she needs to grow a REALLY thick skin from here on out.
Why do you think it's so hard for everyone to let go of Kristen Stewart's cheating?
