Kristen Stewart was picked on, says Watson

Emma Watson is speaking out in defense of Kristen Stewart regarding last summer's headline-grabbing scandal. So what if the Twilight star cheated with married director Rupert Sanders, says the Harry Potter sweetie — she's only human.

"Those who criticized her are the same people that think that being rich and famous is like being covered in some kind of magic powder that makes life perfect," Emma Watson recently told Vanity Fair Italia of Kristen Stewart.

"Nothing can go wrong in your wonderful world. For these people, Kristen deserves all the bad things that have been thrown at her because she had an amazing life and she ruined it."

"I don't know how to explain it, but it sure isn't perfect," the 22-year-old English actress continued of her 22-year-old American counterpart. "I thought that the media picked on her in a very horrible way. Kristen is human, just like everybody else, and she's so young."

"Everyone makes mistakes, everyone," Emma Watson added, noting that Kristen Stewart's romance with Robert Pattinson drew a massive amount of interest from Twilight fans. "It's not fair to consider them matters of public interest."
