Following the tabloid explosion of her cheating scandal with Rupert Sanders, Kristen Stewart has pulled out of the UK premiere of her upcoming movie On the Road.
The 22-year-old actress was due to appear on the red carpet on August 16, alongside her co-stars Garrett Hedlund, Tom Sturridge and Sam Riley, but following the scandalous revelations of her affair with Sanders, the Twilight actress has decided to avoid embarrassment and pull out of the premiere.
Apparently, Stewart is too ashamed to pose alongside Sturridge, as he is close friends with Rob Pattinson and Kristen sees any potential red-carpet posing as extremely awkward.
It has been reported that Kristen grew up reading Kerouac novels and it was always a childhood dream of hers to star in a movie adaptation of his greatest novel, On the Road.
However, in the light of recent revelations, she feels that any appearance at the premiere would take attention away from the movie, and as a massive Kerouac fan, that’s not she wants. Yeah right.
On the Road is due for release in the coming months and it is the movie adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s generation-defining novel about 50s Jazz America and is the epitome of Beat literature. It’s my all-time favourite book, so I hope the movie does it justice!
