Kristen Stewart’s illicit affair with her much older married director, 42-year-old Rupert Sanders, is still coming back to haunt her. Since news of their affair scandal surfaced in July 2012, Stewart’s relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson crumbled, along with Sanders’ marriage to model Liberty Ross.
Now, sources are claiming that the affair was more than just a moment of weakness or indiscretion for Sanders, because he supposedly still has legitimate feelings for the young actress—she’s 19 years younger than he is. “Even though he has admitted to everyone in his life that the long-brewing affair was a terrible idea, he still hasn’t been able to get over his feelings for Kristen,” the insider revealed to Radar Online about the former celebrity couple. “He fell in love with her a long time before he laid a finger on her, and he’s finding it difficult to shake.”
The source goes on to claim that Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders are still very much in contact with one another, and he’s still hoping that they’ll be able to salvage their May-December relationship one day.
Meanwhile, Stewart is said to be more concerned about repairing the damage that this affair scandal has done to her reputation, although she doesn’t seem to be very regretful about what she did. “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made, so judge away,” she said in a recent interview with Marie Claire magazine. “You don’t know who you will fall in love with. You just don’t. You don’t control it.” It sounds like there might still be something going on between these two.
What do you think: Now that Robert Pattinson and Liberty Ross are out of the picture, should Kristen Stewart give her May-December relationship with Rupert Sanders another shot?
