Kristen Stewart pulls out of premiere

Los Angeles - Kristen Stewart has reportedly pulled out of the London premiere of her new movie On The Road because she is too embarrassed to appear in public in the wake of her cheating scandal.

The 22-year-old actress was originally planning to walk the red carpet for the film version of Jack Kerouac's classic novel on 16 August - but with her co-star Tom Sturridge, a close friend of Robert Pattinson.

A source told website RadarOnline: "Kristen won't be doing the red carpet for On The Road - she's too ashamed to show her face in public right now.

"After everything that has been said, and in light of the revelations that she cheated on Robert with director Rupert Sanders, she's running scared at the moment."

Detract people from the movie itself

The insider continued: ''There's also the dilemma of standing next to her co-star in the movie, Tom Sturridge. He's very close to Rob and Kristen thinks it would be awkward for her to promote the movie on the red carpet alongside him.

"Kristen is very proud of her work for On The Road, she grew up reading Kerouac novels and this is a production she always wanted to star in."

They added: "If she appears at the London premiere, it will detract people from the movie itself and Kristen doesn't want that at all.

"She wants her performance and this film to be recognised for what it is - a great adaptation of a classic book."

    My hope is that someone could be thoughtful enough to pass on to Kristen Stewart that not everyone is against her. She is not the first, nor will she be the last, person to be a part of an indiscretion. Kristen Stewart is only 22 years old, she's made a mistake and i've no doubt at all that Kristen can be a better person from this. Have a rest Kristen and take some time to relax and re-focus your personal direction -finder. You're a lovely woman and you shouldn't allow this to overcome you.
