kristen stewartThe month since her split with Robert Pattinson clearly hasn't been easy on Kristen Stewart. Sure, she has hit the town with friends, being photographed at a saloon in Memphis and an Amarillo, Texas Hooters of all places. But all those outings can't mask what is really going on inside the Twilight star. This photo of a gloomy, makeup-free Kristen reveals the truth.

Ok. I admit seeing her this way isn't such a huge departure from the way she normally looks. She usually only glams up and slathers on all that makeup for a red carpet appearance or awards show. But there is something else so telling about Kristen in this pic. She looks like a woman going through some serious heartbreak.

A breakup is bad enough when it happens quietly and privately. Multiply that pain times 10 when the whole world is watching and half of them blame you for it. Though, no matter who you are -- or how nasty the split -- one thing is universal: It's hard to even get out of bed, let alone paint your face and curl your hair after a romance comes crashing to an end.  

We've all certainly been there. It's a crushing point in any person's life. It often comes after months or even years of trying to make a failing relationship work somehow. We feel so defeated, so hurt, so filled with regret. That is especially true if we have done something to muddle things up, like cheat or lie. So it's no surprise Kristen is going around fresh-faced and doesn't have the energy to keep a smile plastered on her face. Who would?

Do you think Kristen is still having a hard time with the split?
