Finally, someone is defending trampire Kristen Stewart. The entire industry it seems has rallied behind Robert Pattinson now that the dust has settled on the Kristen/Rupert Sanders scandal. It was just announced late yesterday that in addition to be the most hated girl in the Twihard world, Kristen just lost her gig in the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, while as of now at least, the much older, married man she was running around with still has his job.
Her old on-screen mom from Panic Room Jodie Foster says we should all back off and that her f— ups had been so publicized, she would have never made it.
In a blog written for The Daily Beast, Jodie — who starred alongside a young Kristen in 2002′s “Panic Room” — stood up for the “Twilight Saga” star, blasting the media for scrutinizing her every move since she publicly apologized for having a fling with married director Rupert Sanders.
“If I were a young actor or actress starting my career today in the new era of social media and its sanctioned hunting season, would I survive?” Jodie wrote in the blog posted on Wednesday, after chastising the tabloid-devouring public for “unknowingly” destroying “childhoods.” “Would I drown myself in drugs, sex, and parties? Would I be lost?”
Jodie, who has been in the industry since the age of 3, said she wouldn’t be able to endure film career in this day and age.
“I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally,” the Academy Award-winning actress wrote. “I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety.”
