What's it like to be cheated on, especially under Hollywood's microscope? Liberty Ross is sharing her own experience, which came when then-husband Rupert Sanders was captured on film in mid-2012 necking around town with his "Snow White and the Huntsman" star Kristen Stewart. The affair would go on to demolish both Robert Pattinson's relationship with Stewart and Ross' marriage to Sanders, despite public apologies from both guilty parties. "It was horrible," Ross, 35, says in the December issue of Vanity Fair.

Before Lindsay Lohan acceded to a judge's orders, agreeing to enter 90 days of court-mandated lock-down rehab in New York on May 1, the struggling ingenue made an unusual detour: the backstage artists' village at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio. In a cordoned-off enclosure that has provided a fertile environment for every stripe of rock 'n' roll excess over the years, Lohan was spotted kicking it Friday night with her 16-year-old brother, Cody, prior to Blur's 10 p.m. set.   But Lilo was far from the only celebrity caught Coa-chillin' over the festival's first weekend.

Early in"Snow White and the Huntsman,"several droplets of blood fall to the frozen ground in extreme slow motion, a sample not only of the menace to follow but also of first-time director Rupert Sanders' truly painstaking attention to detail. The shot was the last sequence filmed by the veteran commercial director, and no matter how hard the crew tried, the production's artificial serum never had the proper viscosity or splatter. "It just looked like raspberry jam," Sanders said.

"Snow White and the Huntsman,"starring a fierce Kristen Stewart and an even fiercer Charlize Theron as warring sides of good and evil, is a baroque enchantment filled with dazzling darkness, desultory dwarfs, demonic trolls and beastly fairies. It is an absolute wonder to watch and creates a warrior princess for the ages. But what this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white. Perhaps they are saving the passion for the sequel, for it seems there is surely one to come after director Rupert Sanders' brilliantly inventive debut.

MARLOES SANDS, Wales - Nearly a hundred soldiers on horseback sprinted across the beach here last fall, dodging arrows and catapulted fire balls. Despite many casualties, the charging "Snow White and the Huntsman" army was determined to storm the castle of the evil Queen Ravenna, who not only can suck the beauty out of young women but also transmogrify into a murder of crows. Assessing the battle from an all-terrain vehicle was Rupert Sanders, a commercial director making his first feature film.

Hey, Rupert Sanders, it looks as if the rest of your home country (Robert Pattinson excepted) disagrees with you about the sexiness of one Kristen Stewart - at least in a new pre-Oscar poll. Stewart was voted the least sexy Hollywood actress in a poll conducted on behalf of U.K. gadget website MenKind (presumably to lure folks into its selection of Tetris Mood Lights, Zombie Gnomes and Star Wars Jedi Dressing Gowns, items likely to land on a woman's least-sexy list). "Our Oscars poll has been a fascinating insight into the minds of British men," said a spokesperson for MenKind ( via the Independent )

Kristen Stewart is still sorry, folks. In a sweeping, general, you-still-don't-own-me sort of way. "I apologize to everyone for making them so angry," the actress told Newsweek, presumably referring to her "indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders back in July, which rattled her relationship with Robert Pattinson and sent shock waves through the "Twilight" fan community. "It was not my intention. " What her intention was is not made clear in the interview , published Monday, though we assume it was something along the all-I-wanna-do-is-have-some-fun spectrum - something not unheard of for a woman in her early 20s. PHOTOS: Rob and Kristen through the years It's not the first time Stewart has expressed remorse after she was photographed in intimate embraces with her "Snow White and the Huntsman" director.

Actress Kristen Stewart was on the paparazzi radar again when she made an appearance at Paris Fashion Week on Thursday in one of her few public sightings since news broke that she had cheated on former boyfriend Robert Pattinson with director Rupert Sanders.

The actors have reportedly reunited following a very public fling between Stewart and director Rupert Sanders, with rumors of reconciliation ahead for the on-screen Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.  We can assume Pattinson hasn't seen Stewart since late July, when the "Cosmopolis" star moved out of the Los Feliz home he shared with her.  ...
