Kristen Stewart issues public apology for cheating scandal

Moving quickly after allegations of cheating surfaced, actress Kristen Stewart, 22, and "Snow White and the Huntsman" director Rupert Sanders, 41, have issued very public apologies for the cheating scandal that surfaced after photos of the two of them in a close embrace were leaked.

Stewart, who has been dating "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson for three years, first issued a statement to People saying, "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."

Not long after, Sanders apologized via People saying, "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together."

Sanders is married to British actress Liberty Ross (who actually played Stewart's mother in "Snow White and the Huntsman") and the couple have two children. Ross has not spoken publicly about the "indiscretion," but interestingly, she's said to have deleted her Twitter account after hearing about the allegations that her husband and Stewart had an affair, but not before tweeting the singular word, "Wow."

Pattinson has yet to comment.
