Kristen Stewart & dad John StewartHas anybody else been wondering if Kristen Stewart has daddy issues? I mean, do the math: KStew is 22. Her alleged flame/former director Rupert Sanders is 41. That there is what I call a sizable age difference. And as someone who may or may not have dated her 45-year-old professor when she was 22 because she may or may not have had a few daddy issues of her own to work out ... well, I'm just saying it's a possibility.
You know what they say -- if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's probably attempting to work out unresolved father/daughter relationship problems by seeking relationships of a sexual or romantic nature with an older man.
But what might those hypothetical father/daughter relationship problems be?
By all accounts, KStew's father, TV stage manager and producer John Stewart, seems like a super-devoted dad -- standing up to paparazzi in her defense, calling his daughter "beautiful." Although he apparently wasn't too crazy about Twilight ...
Way back in 2009, when Kristen Stewart was a no-show at the Oscars, Access Hollywood's Billy Bush asked "Papa Stew" (as his daughter calls him) why she wasn't walking the red carpet with Robert Pattinson. His answer? Kristen would present at the Oscars to promote one of her films “when it’s a great movie, not just one that makes a lot of money.”
Yowch!! Way to knock your daughter's multizillion-dollar accomplishment, Papa Stew.
I can just imagine how the whole Kristen/Rupert thing got rolling. They were filming Snow White, Rupert was all, "Kristen, that's fabulous. GENIUS. You have such a gift. I am in awe of your talent." And Kristen was all, Wow, I feel so validated by this attractive older man! And an affair was born.
Who knows? Only KStew's therapist. While we wait for answers, watch this video of Papa Stew getting up in some rude paparazzo's grill:
