The fact that I’m being put into a position where I have to
defend Kristen Stewart makes me a little sick.
Just wanted to get that out of the way.
Yet, here I am.
Earlier this week news broke that Stewart might be bounced
from the sequel to ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ as payback for her affair with
the married director of the film Rupert Sanders.
Universal Studios was quick to issue a statement saying that
Stewart’s role in the sequel – which hasn’t even been written yet – was still
Still, those “in the know” say that Universal Studios is
considering focusing on Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman character instead of Stewart’s
They also say that Sanders would be back as director.
Here’s the thing, I saw ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and
was underwhelmed. I thought Stewart was flat and I thought the movie was way
That being said, if Universal Studios thinks that Stewart
wasn’t the driving force behind the box office for that flick they’re crazy.
Sure, Hemsworth has a solid fan base – but Stewart has
reached iconic heights for her role in ‘Twilight.’ I predict she’ll fall faster
than ‘New Kids on the Block’ and Corey Feldman after all the ‘Twilight’ hoopla
passes – but right now she is driving ticket sales.
My problem with this whole scenario is that Stewart is the
one being painted as some home-wrecking hussy.
The thing is, Stewart made a mistake. She cheated on her
boyfriend – and from all accounts she’s paying for it by being ostracized by
her friends and former boyfriend Robert Pattinson. She’s also getting
threatened by tweens everywhere on the Internet (shouldn’t someone be
monitoring their kids’ online time?).
Stewart is 22, though, and I don’t know about anyone else
but I wouldn’t want the choices I made as a 22-year-old to be broadcast all
over the world. That’s the age to make mistakes. Plus, she wasn’t married. She didn't promise to love and be faithful to someone until "death do them part."
Sanders is another story. He had a wife and two kids and he
was 19 years old than Stewart. He did know better.
There’s a whole group of individuals on the Internet – and most
of them are women – who seem to blame Stewart for this mess.
Well, here’s the thing, you can’t “steal” someone from
someone else. This goes to all those people still whining about Angelina Jolie "stealing" Brad Pitt from Jennifer Anniston, too.
Stewart was young and impressionable. Sanders was an adult
with a family. One of them is more at fault here, that’s for sure, but it’s not
the unmarried 22-year-old.
Yet, through all of this, I haven’t heard the possibility of
Sanders being booted from the sequel instead of Stewart.
Seriously, why don’t we just paint an A on her chest and let
her walk around so people can throw tomatoes after her.
I am not a fan of Stewart. I am not a fan of ‘Twilight.’ I
have made that abundantly clear.
However, people just need to get over it.
Stewart made a mistake. She acknowledged it. Now let her
Just a tip, none of you tweens are going to really bag
Robert Pattison now that she’s out of the picture so you might as well let that
What do you think? Is Stewart getting what she deserves?
