Like Stewart, the filmmaker, 41, released his statement to People magazine, America’s top news source for post-tryst Hollywood apologies.
“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” he said, referring to his wife, Liberty Ross, and their two kids. “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
Ross, by the way, was in “Snow White and the Huntsman” as well; the model and actress played Queen Eleanor, Snow White’s mother who — spoiler alert — dies early on in the film and is “replaced” when her husband marries a new bride (Charlize Theron).
So, to recap: Stewart cheated with the man who is married to her dead mother. In a manner of speaking based entirely on a work of fiction, that is.
Good lord, what a mess this is.
Robert Pattinson has not issued a statement yet, but set your iPhone stopwatch apps. At this rate, one could be coming any minute.
