Divorce, cheating, break ups, they are perfectly synonymous with Hollywood these days. But no one expected the fabulous couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart to hit that road!. We fans are just too naive when it comes to believing in celebrity relationships.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson not only had the most magical on screen chemistry; they were the Hollywood ‘it’ couple for over four years. That’s a lot of time and a lot of love. But what went wrong; was what Kristen describes as “momentary indiscretion”, cheating on Pattinson with Rupert Sanders, the director of her new movie Snow white and the Huntsman. Not only is he 19yrs older than Kristen, he’s married with two kids. Whatever happened to wedding vows!. But then again, in Hollywood, everything is possible.
Kristen who’s known for keeping her private life in hush was devastated and issued a public apology in People Magazine stating, “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
Pattinson however, is steering clear from making any direct comment on being cheated on. And through many interviews has focused only on promoting his new movie Cosmopolis. He told George Stephanopoulos, live at the good morning America studios at Times Square, “I’ve never been interested in selling my personal life“.
What is more devastating is the effect of such stunts played by celebrities on their fans. Over and over gain, since years, the loyal fans believe everything their role model actors say. They believe in their relationships, that they would last forever. And time and time again, get disappointed by their movie idols. This is having not only a psychologically negative effect on the younger fans of the twilight couple, but also on how they view relationships in general.
Television and media, has undoubtedly had a great impact on the psyche of young kids, and what they see, is what they learn. With Hollywood depicting such unstable relationships, its causing harm larger in magnitude than a public apology can save.
Another thing to notice is the fact that media and fans are drawing sympathy towards the young couple, but not much attention is being given to the effect this cheating scandal has had on the family of the director!. Rupert Sanders is married to model and actress Liberty Ross. There will definitely be more pain in that house than between a couple who weren’t even married.
The fans have mixed opinions about them making it work or just moving on. But that is for them to decide. Yet another couple breaks up due to a cheating scandal. Will we ever get used to it?
