By now, we all know what transpired between Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders, the actress’ director on Snow White and the Huntsman.
But we weren’t sure how Bill Condon, the man behind the camera for Breaking Dawn Part 2, felt about the scandal that has enveloped his upcoming blockbuster… until now.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly about its upcoming Fall Movie Preview – which features an unfortunately ironic photo on the cover – Condon says Stewart and Robert Pattinson were nothing but professional, respectful and hard-working on set.
They are also just regular people, despite the pedestal on which many fans have placed them.
“The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that,” Condon tells EW. “Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon.
“Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”
That’s certainly a fair request. Twihards will get their first look at Pattinson since the drama broke when he makes an appearance this Monday on The Daily Show.
