Kristen Stewart's affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders didn't just destroy her relationship with Twilight costar Robert Pattinson--it destroyed his marriage with wife Liberty Ross as well. Now, two years after the sordid fling, the director's divorce is final and Liberty Ross is rolling in the dough--his.

Kristen Stewart was quoted as calling the affair a "momentary indiscretion" back in July of 2012, but that 'indiscretion' didn't sit well with Pattinson, who later gave the relationship another try, only to split up again with the moody actress. Liberty Ross, on the other hand, shied away from the cameras and eventually filed for divorce from Rupert Sanders. One of the results of said divorce now nets her $25,000 per month in spousal support. She will also receive child support for the couple's two children, and a percentage of profits from Sanders' films. Interestingly enough, however, there will be no receipt of profits from Snow White and the Huntsman. Liberty Ross is clearly holding a grudge.

When Ross finally opened up to the media about the cheating scandal, she spoke to Vogue magazine.

“It was horrible. It was really the worst, really the worst," she said.

Despite the sad demise of what once was probably a happy household, Kristen Stewart claimed recently that she has no regrets thus far in her young life. She shared those thoughts in an interview for Marie Claire.

"I stand by every mistake I've ever made, so judge away," she said. "You don't know who you will fall in love with. You just don't. You don't control it. Some people have certain things, like, 'That's what I'm going for,' and I have a subjective version of that. I don't pressure myself."

"If you fall in love with someone, you want to own them—but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love. I'm much too young to even have an answer for that question," she added.

It seems kind of interesting that in light of this affair, Liberty Ross at the very least wound up with a boatload of Rupert Sanders' money. Rupert Sanders was replaced by director Frank Darabont for the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, and Kristen was dropped as the lead, as noted in the video clip above. So what did Kristen Stewart get? She lost Robert Pattinson, the love of her life--right? And have you seen her recently in anything spectacular on the big screen?

Enough said. Maybe it really doesn't pay to play in Hollywood?
