She’s pure poison.
Even in amoral Hollywood, where sex is frequently confused with a handshake, actress Kristen Stewart is leading the race to the landfill.
At 22, Stewart had won the heart and various organs of a guy some consider the hottest vampire in the land, the pale and sparkly Robert Pattinson.
Stewart was blessed with a soaring (if whiny) presence. She posed as an intelligent, wholesome and virginal role model to ’tween and teen girls everywhere. For this was the one gal who saved herself for true love, and occasional bloody bruising, with the man haunting her dreams.
On screen and especially off, she was the picture of passion, devotion and fidelity.
It was all an act.
Stewart belly-flopped into the sewer, turning from skinny starlet to the worst example of female hussy — a selfish, home-wrecking bloodsucker more interested in advancing her career and satisfying a common itch than a fairy-tale romance.
I guess she should have gone with the werewolves and bedded down with Team Jacob (played by the scrumptious Taylor Lautner), and saved us, and Pattinson, a whole heap of trouble.
Last week, Stewart confessed to a lapse that was startling even by the low moral standards of Tinseltown. While living with Pattinson, 26, she carried on a sleazy affair with Rupert Sanders, who directed her in the flick “Snow White and the Huntsman.’’
At 41, Sanders could be Stewart’s dad. Worse, he’s married to model Liberty Ross, with whom he has two young kids.
Summoning every ounce of her weak acting chops, Stewart begged forgiveness from Pattinson, calling the dalliance with Sanders “a momentary indiscretion.’’ Sanders also said sorry to his wife. But Pattinson wasn’t having any of it. He booted Stewart from the house they shared.
Also not having any of her rot was my 13-year-old daughter, who has long hated Stewart for her monotone delivery and lack of spunk, not to mention her romantic rejection of werewolf Jacob Black.
And now she hates Stewart for sleeping with a married dad. Yeah, it takes two to tango. But Stewart should be terrified of my daughter’s condemnation.
For Stewart’s target audience consists of paying youngsters who see her pictures, over and over.
Now she’s fated to ask the immortal professional question, “You want fries with that?’’
This appeared to be more than a one-time thing. The middle-aged guy and his young muffin were spotted around Los Angeles, pawing each other like kids in heat after ducking inside Stewart’s Mini Cooper.
Quotes attributed to Leopold Ross, brother of Sanders’ wife, in the UK newspaper The People said the affair went on “from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week.’’
But adding strangeness to the sordid business, a Ross family source said the quotes were fabricated. And despite Kristen’s teary apology for cheating on Pattinson, a tweet, since deleted, from Team Kristen pal, director Giovanni Agnelli, said: “Kristen Stewart did not have any type of sex with Rupert Sanders.’’ Mmkay.
Sex or none, it was clear from Stewart’s apology that she knew she’d stepped in deep doo-doo. With a new “Twilight’’ movie scheduled for release this fall, and a “Snow White’’ sequel in the works, she could turn from poison to box-office poison.
Stewart may be responsible for two kids raised in a broken home. Pattinson is said to be “heartbroken.’’
Fear not, vampire fans.
Another actress will take Stewart’s place.
