The saying that “time heals all wounds” is turning out to be true for Liberty Ross. The model talked to Harper’s Bazaar about the aftermath of her ex-husband’s affair with Kristen Stewart.
She’s forgiven both of them for their transgressions, because she now has perspective on the paparazzi-revealed event.
“People need to learn to forgive. I have no problem with anyone involved. I’m completely compassionate, I really am. No life is perfect, we all have our problems and issues and I believe that it’s good to be true to who you are,” Ross said.
The British actress also realized that she got involved with Rupert Sanders at such a young age and they had both started to grow apart.
Ross explained, “Rupert and I were together since we were very, very young. I was 18 — essentially, I married my first boyfriend. I always used to say we were more like a brother and sister anyway. We’d been together for so long, we weren’t really evolving together as a couple so much.”
What she doesn’t miss is the tabloid explosion that occurred after the affair was exposed.
“Unfortunately, we live in a world where everything is so overexposed that it’s actually terrifying. I was horrified at how relentless and extraordinary going through something like that was,” she told the fashion magazine.
“I was able to go and be somewhere secluded for a good month. And then when school went back, I had no choice but to be as strong a woman as I could be for the children.”
Ross is now dating music industry executive Jimmy Iovine, but don’t expect her to walk down the aisle any time soon.
“Not now. I don’t know, gosh. I believe in love and I have no problems with marriage, but I need this time to be strengthening for me and I wouldn’t commit to anyone until I know I am the absolute best person I could be.”
