Kristen Stewart put on a brave face when she stepped out in the daylight just two days after cheating on boyfriend Robert Pattinson with a much-older married man. Dressed casually in a pair of ratty gym shorts and a white T-shirt, the 22-year-old actress was spotted looking somber with dark circles forming under her eyes while out in Los Angeles on July 19.
At one point, the attention-loathing star was seen pleading with photographers to leave her in peace – something that will most likely not happen now that details from her brief tryst with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders, 41, begin to emerge.
In a groveling public apology issued Wednesday, Stewart took responsibility for breaking Pattinson’s heart and coming in between Sanders’ marriage to British model-actress Liberty Ross, with whom he has two children.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” the “Twilight” actress said in a statement.
“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.”
Despite Stewart’s public pleading for forgiveness, Pattinson has reportedly packed his bags and left the Los Angeles home the couple of three years shared.
A source told People that Pattinson, 26, is “heartbroken and angry” by the betrayal and has not been in contact with Stewart since news of the affair broke.
“Kristen really loves Rob more than anything,” the insider said. “He’s all that matters to her right now.”
