When news of Kristen Stewart's fling with married director Rupert Sanders broke last night, reports were making it out like it was a brief transgression on both their parts. One source told People, "She wasn't having an affair with Rupert. It was just a fleeting moment that shouldn't have happened." So maybe they made out a little while the movie was filming and both realized it would be a mistake to go any further?
It's not clear. Especially not now that new details have emerged that make it seem like they were perhaps (and still are?) sneaking around for some time and carrying on a full-throttle illicit relationship ...
According to Us Weekly, a photographer actually caught Kristen in Sanders' car on July 17. The unnamed paparazzo claims:
Kristen was sitting with her back against the driver's-side window, and this guy was kissing her entire body.
The story goes on to explain that the couple then went to Pacific View Trail around 5:15 p.m., sat in the car, and "kissed like teens." They then reportedly walked the trail together, but would "split up and walk in other directions" when they heard voices -- or saw passersby. Afterward, Kristen dropped him off three blocks from the house he shares with wife Liberty Ross and their two children, allegedly kissing one last time before he got out and walked home. Wow.
If this is true, then the two were obviously hooking up months after the shooting of Snow White & the Huntsman wrapped. So this was definitely not just some passing, impulsive make-out session that took place exclusively on-set! And making matters even worse -- Kristen was being so cozy with Rob around the same time, carrying on as if she wasn't totally stabbing him in the back by running around with Rupert. Wow.

This possible revelation -- that it wasn't a one-time indiscretion -- has got to be a gamechanger. Initially, I would have said Rob might be able to forgive Kristen for a solitary "whoopsie!" make-out session that mistakenly happened months ago, but I'm not sure if there's any way they'll be able to rebuild trust after what may have been months of lying and cheating. Man oh man -- what a mess!
Do you think Rob could have forgiven her if it was just a one-time indiscretion? Do you think they have any shot at getting through this given the new details?
