Kristen Stewart steps out in public

2012-09-07 11:10
Toronto - Kristen Stewart has made her first public appearance in nearly two months at the Toronto Film Festival.

The 22-year star of the Twilight series went into lockdown mode after admitting that she had an affair with the married director of her last film, Snow White and the Huntsman.

For her return, hundreds of fans eagerly gathered early in the morning on Thursday, awaiting her walk on the red carpet for her latest film, On the Road. It's based on the classic Jack Kerouac novel, and one of Stewart's favourite books.

'I'm fine'

"I'm somebody that has loved the book their whole life," Stewart said, first reading it at age 14.

Stewart posed for photographers, spoke to a few television crews - while paired with co-star Garret Hedlund - and signed lots of autographs for fans.

Dressed in a slinky, floral Zuhair Murad dress, the young actress held her head high but, at times, showed signs of nervousness. On several occasions, she broke away from the press line to greet fans behind the barricade. It seemed her fans were providing the support she needed to carry on through the mobbed press event.

In July, Stewart apologised for her affair with 41-year old director Rupert Sanders. The announcement put her romantic relationship with Twilight star Robert Pattinson on hold.

When asked how she was doing, Stewart responded: "I'm doing fine." Then, she walked away.

Do you complain to wheels24 that they dare write and article about Bond's car that is on auction while Malema is bla bla bla whatever...? No you dont because it is under...say it with me...motor news...good boy. Just the fact that you read the article makes me think you are a closet-twihard.
