Call it a PR stunt if you want, but the RobStew saga just got a whole lot sadder. As Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders attempt to rebuild their broken relationships, a recent interview featuring the director's wife Liberty Ross pretty much shows just who the real victims are in this drama-rama.
For those of you who don't know, the 33-year-old actress played Queen Eleanor in the Snow White film that was directed by her cheating husband and had starred Kristen Stewart. Once word of the tryst got out, Liberty responded by tweeting just one word before deleting her entire Twitter account.
In an interview conducted just two weeks ago with YOU magazine, Liberty had spoken frankly about how her ten-year marriage had suffered due to Rupert's catapulting career in Tinseltown. Below are a few excerpts from the interview:
'I think that having been a model and so self-sufficient for those years, I was very ready to get married and have babies.
'I romanticised domesticity for a while, and loved having a shopping list of groceries stuck to the fridge for the first time.
'But moving here (from London to LA) and starting a life all over again was a lot harder than I had anticipated. I just didn’t think it would be as isolating and daunting as it turned out to be.
'I can honestly say that it took me five years to feel happy here.'
The 33-year-old implied she lived life as a single mother, but never actually saying a bad word about her husband. She also seemed to think they had conquered their differences:
'I would never say out loud that I am raising my children alone, but a lot of the time it has felt like that.
'I went from the glamour of working with Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano to living on an isolated hilltop, with my husband gone most of the time.'
'But that’s why everything feels so amazing now. We rode through the really hard times and we stuck it out...
'Without them (her siblings, four out of six whom also live in Los Angeles) I probably would have packed up and gone back to London.'
And the worse part is that the infidelity was revealed just months after Robert gave an interview to Italian Vanity Fair magazine saying that he has 'never understood' people who cheat.
'There is one thing I've never understood: Why people cheat. My parents met when my mom was 17 and my father 25, they are still together, and seem very happy.
'I grew up believing that you can be together all of your life.'
Tell that to the divorce attorneys Rupert. As for Kristen, the actress hasn't commented any further after releasing her apology statement. Only time will tell how this fairytale is going to end.
