Emma Watson Defends Kristen Stewart, A.K.A. “Trampire”

Emma Watson is one of Hollywood’s sweethearts; anyone who can come out of eight Harry Potter movies and avoid over-saturation while simultaneously getting a famously adorable haircut and still charm us to death deserves to be fawned over.

But the media isn’t used to Watson speaking out on behalf of other celebrities, especially on a topic that’s been so controversial and blown-up. So when she defended Kristen Stewart recently regarding the “Twilight” actress’s affair and subsequent relationship turmoil, everyone sat up to listen.

“Those who criticized her are the same people that think that being rich and famous is like being covered in some kind of magic powder that makes life perfect: Nothing can go wrong in your wonderful world,” she said. “For these people, Kristen deserves all the bad things that have been thrown at her because she had an amazing life and she ruined it. I don’t know how to explain it, but it sure isn’t perfect. I thought that the media picked on her in a very horrible way. Kristen is human, just like everybody else, and she’s so young. Everyone makes mistakes, everyone. It’s not fair to consider them matters of public interest. On one hand, I can understand why it happened: people felt really involved in her relationship with Robert Pattinson.
But it’s also true that they both have done everything in their power to keep their relationship as far from the public eye as possible.”

Stewart was thrust into the negative side of the Hollywood spotlight last year when paparazzi photos hit the web of her getting intimate with her “Snow White And The Huntsman” director, Rupert Sanders, who was married at the time. She and her boyfriend, “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson, broke up in the aftermath but have since reunited. She was on the receiving end of some pretty harsh backlash from the Twihards, who took to social media to label her a “Trampire”, and has also had former co-star Jodie Foster come to her defense.

    I love Emma and Kristen. Kristen doesn’t deserve half the shit she gets 24/7 and people need to calm down. She made a mistake, and I’m sure she paid the emotional price for it. How many people out there have made the same mistake? Quite a few. So stay out of everyone else’s business.

    Even Emma Watson is defending her! THANK YOU! I love Kristen, she is so much different from other celebs out there!
    And Emma is right, everyone makes mistakes, thats how we learn in life.

      Because even he is not as popular as Kristen and nobody cares about him.

      oh….because he is a male and when a male cheats it’s really not a bod deal….She’s a slut….he’s a stud.
      It’s our society we live in …

      • aria

        *big deal

    This shouldn’t be a big issue.
    So what. She was basically defending her on how she was treated by the media/tabloids.
    Okay so she cheated. She is NOT the first celebrity to have done it, and won’t be the last.
    Rob and Kristen are moving past this it seems….. it’s in the past now. I am sure they talked this over, and however they dealt with this is THEIR way.
    If he has forgiven her, and loves her enough to continue on with her then RESPECT HIS choice to do so.
    Off the cheating topic: The media, and tabloids are awful. They stretch stories out to make them bigger than what they are, they twist things, they like to stir the pot to keep a story going.
    I mean think about how many times has Jennifer Aniston been on the cover of a magazine with the words that she’s having a baby? Lots! How many times has Kim Kardashian been pregnant before this real pregnancy according to magazines?
    Emma defended her on how harsh the media is… okay. Let’s move on!

    Cheaters are cheaters wherever they come from rich or poor.
    It’s just double Hollywood moral. Kristen is so desperate for roles, she breaks into other people families. Well, she is not the first, isn’t she?
    Angelina Jolie, another “darling”, broke up two families before settling down with the “man of her life”. And… we love Angie soooooo. Really, poor girl Kristen, why we are so hard on her?

    Kristen is a slut and a home wrecker. She did this to get other parts, but it back fired. Sure she made a mistake, but there are thousands and thousands of pretty girls in Hollywood looking for the big parts in movies. Maybe give one of them Kristen’s next movie part and they perhaps would not be so stupid with the opportunities handed to her.

    No one pays attention to the director because know one knew his name before all of this attention with the Trampire affair. Its not a society issue of him being a stud. Most people think he is an ass!

      First, I doubt she did it to get parts. But thinking she’s not gonna work anymore doesn’t seem very smart since she just got cast in two high-profile movies. Moving on, the HP cast went through major issues as well, such as Daniel Radcliffe’s addiction problems, that didn’t get picked up by the media right away. Maybe she just feels bad that Kristen’s did. And let’s remember that despite what many tabloids might want you to believe, the two have seemed to be quite fond of each other. I don’t get why it’s wrong to say it’s a personal matter and we should forgive in this situation, but in other high profile infidelity cases (Bill Clinton, etc.) it was wrong to criticize them for it. Seems like hypocrisy and double standards to me.

    what amazes me is how Pattinson has avoided any scrutiny about his past which is dubious at best. Sociologoical surveys say 90% of all men cheat and 70% of all women cheat and rising. Me thinks there are a lot of hypocrites out there.

  • Lulu Collazo

    Let’s turn the tables on Liberty Ross. I doubt she even loved Rupert. I believe she had a struck of luck with Kristen’s mistake and has been using what happened to further her career. She doesn’t give a darn on what happened, I bet she’s just glad it happened, in fact she said in another article she was the one who tipped the press, sooooo, who’s the bad guy in this scenario, Kristen or Liberty? You be the judge, given the facts. Good for Emma Watson! It takes courage and loyalty to stand up for a friend in need.
