A new report claims the ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ director is ‘still hoping for a future’ with Kristen, after their affair contributed to the end of his marriage!
It was a huge scandal when news broke in 2012 that Kristen Stewart had cheated on long-time boyfriend Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. While Rupert’s wife, English model Liberty Ross, stood by him at the time, she filed for divorce early in 2013. Both Rupert’s and Kristen’s careers and personal lives were tarnished, but is Rupert still in love with Kristen? A source tells RadarOnline.com that they are still in contact — and that he is “still hoping for a future” with her!
Rupert Sanders Still In Love With Kristen Stewart
While Kristen, 23, and Rupert, 42, split soon after their affair was exposed, it appears he may still have feelings for her! The source tells the site that “[Rupert] fell in love with [Kristen] a long time before he laid a finger on her, and he’s finding it difficult to shake.”
Apparently, the scandal did more than ruin his marriage — this new report claims Rupert is having trouble landing a feature-film directing role and has been “laying low,” directing commercials!

And yet, despite all that, the source adds that “against all better judgement, [Rupert] still holds out hope that he and Kristen can get things going again, but he’s completely deluded – she would never put her career on the line like that again.” Not to mention her personal life!
This scandal was a disaster for all involved; it may be best for Rupert to continue to stay the course and lie low. After all, this totally devastated his personal life, leading his wife to file for divorce! Luckily for him, Liberty is seeking joint — not sole — custody of their two children, but we can’t imagine that his children are too pleased with him following this cheating scandal, either.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Is Rupert still in love with Kristen? Should he pursue that or let it lie? Vote and tell us what you think about this shocking report below!
