It was revealed last night that Stewart has been dropped from the planned sequel to Snow White and the Huntsmen, in which she was the star and also during which she met director Rupert Sanders and the two purportedly started a tawdry affair that broke the hearts of Sanders’s wife and children, Stewart’s long-time boyfriend and legions and legions of Twilight fans who were thrilled that their real-life Edward and Bella were riding off into the sunset just like their fictional counterparts.
Of course, I am the very last person you want to come to if you are looking for a defense for cheating on your partner or spouse. Clearly there are reasons beyond our knowing why Stewart and Sanders chose to disregard the feelings of their romantic partners and mess around with each other for however long they messed around before getting caught. But, I can only imagine that there was something they found in each other that they felt was lacking in their “real” relationships. Okay, understandable. That is the time when, in my opinion, you fix the relationship you’re in or you get out and find what it was you were missing.
