Kristen Stewart acknowledged that she made a mistake by having a fling with married director Rupert Sanders, a real-life indiscretion that complicates, among other things, her life-imitating-art romance with “Twillight” co-star Rob Pattinson.
Oddly, the KStew cheating incident has echoes in a non-“Twilight” film in which she recently starred: “On the Road,” in which her character freely explores her sexuality (among other things).
In the adaptation of the classic Beat novel, Stewart plays Marylou, the teenage wife of Dean Moriarty and part of a group for whom monogamy is, well, not exactly a way of life.
In talking to The Times at the Cannes Film Festival in May, Stewart offered a thought on the stage of life that the film attempts to capture. If her comment doesn’t explain what happened, it does offer some context for it.
