After the cheating scandal that thrust her into the spotlight in a way she’s never experienced before, Kristen Stewart has come to the realization that, should someone set their mind to harming her, it would be no difficult task.
Kristen admitted to an “indiscretion” with Rupert Sanders, her director in “Snow White and the Huntsman,” even though she was at the time with Robert Pattinson, her “Twilight” co-star.
Some fans of the vampire franchise did not take the news of her cheating kindly, reacting to it the only way they could: by going online to spew venom
and, in some, very isolated cases, manifesting their disapproval with all kinds of anti-Kristen products, such as T-shirts.
In this context, it would make sense for Kristen to live in fear of her life. The fact that social media is making celebrities all the more accessible to fans doubles her worries, she admits in a new interview cited by Fashion & Style
“Nowadays it’s harder because everyone is on Facebook and everyone knows where you are all the time, and everyone’s twittering,” Kristen says.
She doesn’t have a Twitter and / or Facebok account but clearly she’s well aware of how well her fans are communicating via these two social networking websites.
“Like I’m going to die because somebody is going to say where I am and somebody is going to kill me. Someone’s going to twitter my location and then it’s going to be like, boom,” the star goes on to say.
“So, I actually think too much of anything can be scary, but at the same time it’s also an opportunity. I mean mass communication is a good thing. It’s actually a really great thing, it’s just scary,” Kristen concedes.
Kristen isn’t the only “Twilight” cast member to say something along these lines. Robert Pattinson, her co-star and, according to reports, still real-life boyfriend
, also believes that social media can often translate into the most gruesome violation of privacy
for the stars.
Luckily for Rob, his fans are a bit more understanding, even taking action on more than one occasion to “protect” him from the media
and unnecessary exposure.
