Every gossip magazine has been dying for the inside scoop on how Kristen Stewart is coping, after her affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders was exposed through a series of photos in July. So far, she’s lost her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, to the scandal, and everyone has been wondering how this will affect her blossoming career. Will she make the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman as planned? Will she be a part of the promotional tour for the last installation of Twilight, Breaking Dawn: Part 2? It’s not easy being 22 years old, and we can only imagine that being 22 and one of the most famous people in the world who happens to be going through a serious personal life drama must be nothing short of terrifying. Nevertheless, Kristen Stewart made her first scheduled appearance on the red carpet at Toronto International Film Festival since the scandal, and proved that she’s here to stay. Here’s how to handle a scandal, starring Kristen Stewart.

Own Up To It Immediately
Sure, Kristen Stewart got a lot of flack for immediately issuing a statement confessing to both her “momentary indiscretion” with Rupert Sanders as well as her undying love for Robert Pattinson. While some Kristen critics thought her public apology was unnecessary, we like that she followed the lead of people like David Letterman (cheating scandal) and Scarlett Johansson (nude photo scandal) by sticking to the truth. Everyone makes mistakes, and mistakes are forgivable. Dishonesty, however, is more of a serious character flaw. Read all about Kristen’s public apology here: Kristen Stewart Admits To Affair! Apologizes To Rob!
Stay Out Of The Limelight For A While
Instead of going on TV to tell her side of the story or giving an interview to Oprah, Kristen Stewart decided to lay low after news broke of her scandal, save for the public apology she sent out via her publicist. Robert Pattinson was the first to go out on a press tour for his new movie Cosmopolis. He handled his public appearances with grace and paved the way for Kristen to do the same. We know that Kristen was definitely heartbroken by what her affair caused, and we think it was smart for her to lay low for a while. You never know what you might say or do when your emotions are running wild! Here’s how Rob handled the press when he stepped back into the spotlight: How To Survive A Breakup, Starring Robert Pattinson.
Subtly Show That You Still Care
Kristen Stewart has been photographed wearing Rob’s baseball cap and backpack all over LA. She made a statement without saying a word when she got on a plane for Toronto this week wearing Rob’s old Erie T-shirt. She’s also been photographed wearing a ring and pendant that Rob gave her back when they were together. Obviously, she still deeply cares about Rob, and by wearing his clothes, we can definitely see that the girl has a good heart, despite her mistakes.

Own The Red Carpet When You Make Your Comeback
All eyes were on Kristen Stewart at the North American premiere of On the Road at Toronto International Film Festival. The actress wowed the crowd in a Zuhair Murad Couture dress and stayed on the red carpet for 40 minutes! Everyone there to see Kristen seemed supportive of the actress. Fans held signs that read: ”Talent, Beauty, Strength and Courage — We stand by Kristen always,” and “We are always with you Kristen Stewart.” She was definitely the biggest attraction of the first day of Toronto Film Fest, and we think all the choices she made leading up to her return to the limelight helped make fans align with Team Kristen.
