The news broke yesterday that Kristen Stewart had an affair with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, and a recent interview with Sanders' wife Liberty Ross reveals that the couple hit a rough patch right before the cheating scandal started.
In an interview with YOU Magazine, Ross talks about some of the difficulties in their marriage, including raising the couple's two young children while her husband was working. Ross admitted that moving from London to Los Angeles as her husband launched his Hollywood directing career was "isolating and daunting." Ross added, "I would never say out loud that I am raising my children alone, but a lot of the time it has felt like that."
"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," Ross continued. "But that's why everything feels so amazing now. We rode through the really hard times and we stuck it out." I bet she's kicking herself for that quote right about now!
Ross and Sanders have been together ten years, and the couple share two young kids, aged 7 and 5. Sanders said in a statement on Wednesday. "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. 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."
Stewart also issued an apology, seemingly begging for forgiveness from her boyfriend of four years and Twilight co-star Rob Pattinson. "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected," she said. "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."
Neither Ross nor Pattinson has issued a statement on the cheating scandal...
