Look, I’m as invested in this ridiculous Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson publicity stunt as much as the next celebrity stalker. But we have to draw the line at stories that go beyond rumors and just enter the land of make believe. I’m not saying we have to rule out speculation or barely substantiated stories. I’m just saying we need to write stories that have at least one fact, before we start spinning wild fictional tales of betrayal and deceit.
Like this one about Liberty Ross giving Snow White and the Huntsman sequel an ultimatum. One where the producers need to choose between Kristen Stewart or her.
“That would be awkward should they work together in the next movie,” a source tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “That’s just not going to happen and one of them won’t be returning. My guess is Liberty will walk away from her role if Kristen’s returning. It’s just too close to home. The entire situation would be uncomfortable for everyone involved.”
This is obviously untrue for the following 5 reasons:
1. Liberty Ross plays Snow White’s dead mother who died five minutes into the film. Unless the movie was a prequel, she’s not going to be in it. And if it is a prequel then the Huntsman is like 13 and probably not even a huntsman yet. I love Chris Hemswoth, but I don’t think he can pull off the “tween” role. Sure, they could do flashback scenes, but the only reason to do those would be so rubberneckers could watch Kristen Stewart and Liberty Ross acting together in the same scene.
2.. No one even remembers what the mother looks like. If this scandal hadn’t erupted, they could have replaced Liberty without us noticing. Replacing Kristen Stewart would be more of a challenge.
3. Liberty’s role in the movie was so small that I can’t even find a photo of it on the Internet. And I just spent a lot of time looking in the darkest corners of the world wide web.
4. Despite the fact that many people hate Kristen Stewart right now for her alleged affair with Liberty Ross’ husband Rupert Sanders, she still has fans. I assure you, based on tweets and emails and comments we’ve received in the past few weeks, she still has a lot of fans. Fans go to see their favorite actors in movies. Even if they have no interest in the movie. That’s why I paid money to see New York Minute – to support Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen — not to see twins ditch school for a day. So from a marketing standpoint it would make no sense to choose Liberty Ross over Kristen Stewart.
5. People only know the name Liberty Ross because Kristen Stewart kissed her husband. She’s barely an actress, let alone one that can walk around Hollywood making wild demands.
Therefore in conclusion, can we all agree to only talk about rumors that are based in some kind of truth?
Like making up a story about Robert Pattinson hosting a wild sexy orgy at Reese Witherspoon’s house works for me. Saying Robert Pattinson murdered Kristen Stewart with the help of the Good Morning America hosts doesn’t.
See the difference?
