Kristen’s betrayal of Rob was not only cruel, but hypocritical, in light of an interview from May where she spoke out against cheating. Read on for details!
Kristen Stewart has taken a lot of heat in the media for having cheated on boyfriend Robert Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders, and, frankly, she’s deserved it. While it certainly takes two to tango, an interview from back in May in which Kristen says she wouldn’t want her boyfriend to cheat on her just makes her look extra cruel.
The interview in question, dated May 24, was part of a press tour for her upcoming film, On The Road. While discussing her character, Marylou, and the abuses she takes from men, Kristen said, “Being a fairly normal girl who would not want my boyfriend to cheat on me, it was good to know the woman behind the character.”
While Kristen has maintained that her affair with Rupert was nothing more than a “momentary indiscretion” that occurred on July 17, photos have surfaced showing the two at dinner together in Berlin, in May, looking awfully close. These photos have led a lot of people, myself included, to wonder if Kristen’s account of things is false and if there was more to the affair. And if there was, she very well could have spoken in this interview while cheating.
Either way, for Kristen to publicly state that she wouldn’t want to be cheated on and then go and cheat herself is enormously hypocritical, not to mention cruel. She showed an utter lack of regard for Rob’s feelings. Why should she expect and want people to be faithful to her if she can’t find the strength and compassion to be faithful herself?
It also needs to be said that Rupert is no angel here. Much of the attention has been placed on Kristen in this situation, but it shouldn’t be forgotten that it does take two people to cheat. Rupert risked a marriage of seven years to Liberty Ross, a marriage that has produced two children, when he took part in the affair, and he deserves to be taken to task for his actions, as well.
However, that doesn’t make what Kristen did to Rob any less shameful. Whether she truly gave into a mere moment of weakness or she carried on a months-long affair, her actions betrayed her words. She betrayed Rob, she betrayed us, and that wasn’t cool.
