Liberty Ross Speaks Out on Kristen Stewart’s Affair With Her Husband


Liberty RossIt's been awhile since the world was shocked by photos of Kristen Stewart hooking up with her married director Rupert Sanders -- behind the back of her most awesomely delish boyfriend, Robert Pattinson! Whew. We're still baffled by that one. Not only did the whole affair ruin Robsten, but more seriously, it broke up a marriage with two children. Rupert's wife, model Liberty Ross, hasn't said much about the whole thing, but now her lips are loosening, and what she has to say is somewhat astonishing!

Liberty opened up to Harper's Bazaar UK, saying:

Unfortunately, we live in a world where everything is so overexposed that it’s actually terrifying. I was horrified at how relentless and extraordinary going through something like that was. I was able to go and be somewhere secluded for a good month. And then when school went back, I had no choice but to be as strong a woman as I could be for the children.

Asked if she resented her ex, she has some extraordinary things to say:

God, no. Ugh. People need to learn to forgive. I have no problem with anyone involved. I’m completely compassionate, I really am ... I always used to say we were more like brother and sister anyway. We’d been together for so long, we weren’t really evolving together as a couple so much. Rupert was very much part of my family, and still is – he was like another sibling. We’ll always have this amazing love for each other. I spent 17 years of my life with him. I have nothing but love and respect and compassion for him.

Wow, here we all thought Liberty must be so heartbroken, she probably couldn't function, but perhaps this was the opening she needed to move on to a better life. Hey, if you can handle being cheated on in this manner, all the more power to you. But not everyone would be so sanguine.

Notice how she said she has no problem with "anyone involved" -- so she's talking about KStew as well as her ex. Pretty forgiving! Wonder how much she means it? Personally, I'd toss more than an ice bucket over KStew's head if she messed with my man!

But it probably helps that not only did KStew never again hook up with Rups (that we know of), but KStew and Rob didn't even stay together. The only one who came out ahead in this whole tangled web was Liberty! She got a great settlement, she and Rups are still co-parenting best friends, and she's dating uber-successful Jimmy Iovine!

I bet Kristen and whatshisname can't even remember what they saw in each other.

Does it sound like Liberty is almost glad the whole thing happened?

I think all parties should forgive. We are all human and we make mistakes. It broke my heart Robert couldn't forgive Kristen their love story was the best of all time.

My opinion about Liberty and her ex husband. I feel she and Rupert had problems long before the scandal and liberty needed a way out.Most women would give the man a second chance when children are involved.

Ellen Bay

She probably had her own little fling. With this kind of marriage, her "take" on it is not that surprising. She's looking at him as another "sibling" so they're probably open to a menage a trois. That's Hollywood for you... I can see Kristin as the victim here, and Rupert as the lucky one... Sad...

I believe that their marriage was already on the rocks all he needed was a naive young girl, and he found it and ruin several lives. She said is forgiven because she has a big settlement and get to keep the kids. The children are the ones that are growing without a Dad at home. Kristen was naive and Robert could not find it in his heart to forgive, like all humans we may forgive but do not forget.
