Why We Shouldn’t Be Surprised by Kristen Stewart’s Cheating Scandal

Yahoo Contributor Network

Sooner or later Hollywood was sure to be rocked by another cheating scandal. This one happens to involve "Twilight" darlings Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. People magazine reports that the "vampire bride" had a fleeting encounter with "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders. While many eyebrows are raised by the news, Kristen has perhaps been offering signals of troubles to come. Should these shocking reports really surprise us?

She's young.

At 22 years of age, many would say that Kristen still has some wild oats to sow. Her supernatural movie character may have tied the knot with Rob. But the early twenties have a way of drawing out restless energy. Her dalliance with a married movie director may have been impulsive and reckless. But in the moment the excitement might have been too much of a temptation.

She unconventional.

The tomboyish movie star often eschews the hullabaloo of Hollywood, preferring to keep her private life out of the spotlight. For a good amount of time, no one even knew whether she and Pattinson were really an item. Privacy aside, the young actress is no stranger to offering her blunt perspective on social matters. An affair with a married filmmaker certainly fits into a "rebel" lifestyle.

Totally Random Theory…

What if in the magical world of Hollywood, Kristen's PR team created this entire scandal as a clever publicity ploy? Inventing a story such as this might help her transition into a sophisticated persona and perhaps lands more adult movie roles. She's already had some practice in "The Runaways"; still, playing a tomboyish rock star didn't seem like much of a stretch."

She had to do something to be more interesting than Charlize Theron.

One might have thought that upon the heels of the "Twilight" series' success, Kristen would have outshined her supernatural cast in "Snow White and the Huntsman". But a fascinating thing happened upon the movie's release: all eyes were on Charlize Theron. As the evil Queen, the sultry blonde sizzled, squeezing every ounce of fairytale charm out the film's character. How better than to top that on screen steam than with real-life sizzle?

She wanted to be "(BLEEPED) over"…

In a magazine interview the outspoken actress implied (via pretty colorful language) she's never suffered serious heartbreak. If Pattinson wasn't getting the job done, maybe she felt compelled to do it herself. Cheating on "Twilight's" bloodsucking hunk does more than shake up things up a bit. Stewart admits that her incident with Sanders was a "mistake" that she seriously regrets. But with the damage done, this little ripple in their love story is certain to set off big waves.
