Kristen Stewart is still in the thick of the promotional tour for On The Road. She met the challenged head-on by staging her post-scandal “coming out photos” ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival (staged with the same paparazzi agency who outed her as a cheater in the first place, FameFlynet Pictures).
She wore Robert Pattinson’s clothes for the staged candids in a contrived attempt to appear sympathetic. It inspired some vitriol. But she wore more of Pattinson’s clothing on the way to TIFF as though to suggest reconciliation. At TIFF, says LaineyGossip.com, Stewart’s people told journalists that Stewart and Pattinson were dating quietly so as not to harm his reputation further. It seemed like planted spin, as in not true, spoon-fed by her publicist. And now the rumours are so tangled, no one knows what’s going on.
Reports (started by her) that Stewart and Pattinson are back together are doing nothing to win back disillusioned fans who, alleges National Enquirer, have resorted to physical attacks and public censuring to express their displeasure. Enquirer says Stewart recently beefed up her security to ward against deranged fans: “The first attack came when she was exiting an office building in the San Fernando Valley: two young women came running at her, screaming that she was a ‘cheating villainess’ and ‘lying b****.’ Kristen, who was alone, made a beeline for her car. She jumped in and slammed the door shut. But these vicious girls grabbed the door handles and began rocking the car back and forth. Kristen burst into tears, hit the accelerator and sped away. But the attack really shook her up. That’s when she hired her bodyguard/driver who’s got orders to pull right up to the door of wherever she’s exiting so she can hop in fast.”
In other Stewart news today, she did an incredibly poorly-worded interview with MTV News about On The Road’s nude scenes: “It didn’t bother me. You can do no wrong with [director Walter Salles]. He puts so much inside of you. In the four-week rehearsal process, it was okay to ask any question, to bring up any story, to really overanalyze everything and intellectualize everything. Once we got on set, it was so about just breathing and letting it happen. He put so much trust in us. So it was like, ‘OK, so I have to take my clothes off?’ It’s so not a big [deal].”
The director “put so much inside” Stewart on set, where she asked “OK, so I have to take my clothes off?” Yeah, she should have worded that better. The photos of her cheating with Rupert Sanders in July are still fresh in people’s minds.
