One woman is married with kids. The other in a relationship with an equally famous star. But after today, Kirsten Stewart and Liberty Ross will forever be etched in internet history after it emerged that Stewart was having an affair with Ross’ husband, Rupert Sanders.
Stewart and Sanders treacherous behavior is made all the more worst by the fact that during filming for The Snow White And The Huntsman, for which Liberty also starred in, the three, alongside Pattinson, would all hang out together.
“Rob and Kristen are both very down-to-earth, very nice people, ” Sanders said. “We all became very close friends.”

Liberty: “I went from the glamour of working with Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano to living on an isolated hilltop, with my husband gone most of the time. But that’s why everything feels so amazing now. We rode through the really hard times and we stuck it out”
