Bill Condon: Stewart has feelings, too

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon wants fans to stop giving Kristen Stewart such a hard time in the aftermath of her cheating scandal. Is he right?

Bill Condon: Stewart has feelings, too

Fans came unglued in July when Kristen Stewart admitted she cheated on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. Pattinson ran away to Reese Witherspoon's house and Stewart dried her tears on Jodie Foster's shoulder.

Then, Lady Gaga came out in support of the actress with a simple tweet.

"Geez this kirstew rob stuff is brutal," the Lady known as Gaga tweeted. "Makes me sad the way press acts."

The singer was about the only one to take her side — other celebs joked that she's nothing more than a "trampire." Well, now she has someone else on Team Kristen: Breaking Dawn director Bill Condon.

"The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it's not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that," Condon told Entertainment Weekly. "Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon."

"Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them," he added.

We do feel for Stewart, especially since she seemed genuinely upset in her apology statement. Many wondered why she'd even be honest when she could have just ignored the whole thing. Well, it seems like that's just who she is.

"I don't like people like that," she recently EW of being fake on the red carpet. "People who are a complete non-person but somehow through the lens seem like they are on and interesting and engaged… I don't want anyone leaving and saying, 'God, that girl is so fake.'"

"I'd rather be me," she added.

We can't blame her for that — and real people make real mistakes, hers are just under the scrutiny of the public.
