What’s more interesting is that Rupert Sanders is being kept on as director. Even though Kristen and Rupert are both guilty of having an affair during the filming of the movie, it’s Kristen who has to suffer the consequences? This is no different than that girl at your school who gets called a “slut” because she kissed a boy who had a girlfriend, while he gets high fives for hooking up with two chicks. (Remember the Craig/Manny/Ashley love triangle on Degrassi?)
I can’t help but think this is just a bit (a lot) unfair. While both did something pretty effed up, it’s clear Kristen is getting most of the heat for it. Let’s remember this guy is older, has a wife and kids and was Kristen’s BOSS.
I’m not saying Kristen isn’t smart enough to know right from wrong, but this guy clearly used his position of power to take advantage of the situation. Even if he did ACTUALLY like Kristen, even if they were super compatible, at 41 years old and as a showbiz veteran, Rupert has a bit more wisdom than the lovely K-Stew.
A) He knows how this can affect a young girl’s career, but he ignored that fact.
B) He knows he shouldn’t be cheating on his wife and hurting his children, he ignored that fact.
C) Any boss knows that he shouldn’t sleep with an employee, he ignored that fact.
D) Everyone knows that the paparazzi is everywhere, especially up K-Stew’s butt, so there is no way they wouldn’t get caught. They both ignored this fact.
I am sure what Rupert also knew is that Hollywood is a lot more critical of women and that it treats young actresses like disposable tissues. Use ‘em and lose ‘em. I am pretty sure he knew his career would be in tact, while hers would suffer.
I am not a huge Kristen Stewart fan and as much as I would be fine with never seeing her act again, I’d rather it not be on these terms. She may not have proven to me that she is a star, but she has pretty much proven to the WORLD that she is. People want to see her movies and they prove that time and time again by buying tickets and making them huge hits. She clearly has something and that should be the end of it. Making a mistake in her personal life should NOT be the end of it. (It shouldn’t be the end for him either.)
What do you think about K-Stew’s punishment? Will you see Snow White without her? Let us know in the comments!
