When it was revealed that Kristen Stewart had cheated on Robert Pattinson, no one could quite believe it.

Following the star's admission that she had been unfaithful to R-Patz, Kristen Stewart went into hiding to avoid the inevitable backlash from fans.

Talking about this period in her life, Kristen Stewart has now admitted that she wished she had ignored what other people were thinking.

She said:"If you're honest you'll make mistakes but that's when the most interesting things happen.

"I used to just stay in my hotel room rather than deal with everything, but if you get too caught up in what others think you become a really disjointed person."

Kristen cheated on Robert with 'Snow White and the Huntsman' director Rupert Saunders earlier this year.

The affair led to the break of not only Kristen and Rob's relationship, but of Rupert's marriage to wife Liberty Ross.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have of course since put her indiscretion behind them and are very much a couple once again.

Many people thought that the couple may have been putting on a brave face during the promotion of the final Twilight film 'Breaking Dawn Part 2'.

However, it seems that the two are still going strong.

The same, unfortunately, cannot be said about Rupert and Liberty.
