Does Kristen Stewart really deserve to lose roles because of affair?

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 undetermined.

Still, those “in the know” say that Universal Studios is considering focusing on Chris Hemsworth’s Huntsman character instead of Stewart’s Snow White.

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 too long.

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 move on.

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 fantasy go.

What do you think? Is Stewart getting what she deserves?

While I agree with you in theory - it's the married guy with kids who actually broke a vow, and the single woman he slept with shouldn't be punished for it - it sounds like the studio basically decided they wanted to keep the director over Stewart. It may be sexist, but they are the ones footing the bell. I think the Twihards are turning on Stewart, though. I don't think they are going to come out in droves to see anymore of KS's drivel. If they were, that Joan Jett movie would have been a bigger hit. They are only interested in her playing Bella. She can't open a movie on her own.
