Charlize Theron is said to be “absolutely fuming” with Kristen Stewart over her fling with married movie director Rupert Sanders.
The South African beauty starred alongside Kristen in Snow White and the Huntsman, which Rupert directed. His model/actress wife Liberty Ross also starred in the blockbuster, with the three girls becoming incredibly close friends during filming.
Now according to sources Charlize has been left feeling betrayed and hurt after the shock affair came to light.
An insider told celebrity website radaronline.com: “Charlize is absolutely fuming with Kristen for having an affair with Rupert.
“She is very tight with Liberty, has often socialized with the family over dinner and cannot believe Kristen has done this.”
The source added: “When they were filming Snow White and the Huntsman, Charlize felt like an older sister to Kristen, and they were always sharing advice.
“Charlize confided to her new pal about her adoption plans. She even asked Kristen if she wanted to be her baby Jackson’s godmother – that was how close they were.
“But Charlize had no idea what was going on between Rupert and Kristen and now feels completely betrayed by the whole incident.”
The source added that Charlize now feels torn between her sisterly bond with Kristen and her sympathy for Liberty.
Movie fans around the globe were left shocked when formerly squeaky-clean Kristen issued a statement confirming the ‘affair’ to People magazine, after being snapped in a compromising situation with Rupert. As well as Rupert cheating on his wife, the fling also took place behind Kristen’s former co-star and long-term love Robert Pattinson’s back.
Kristen's statement said: "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.”
Rupert then followed this up with his own statement which said: “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.”
Rob and Kristen are now believed to have split up, with both seen moving their possessions out of the £5million home they previously shared in Los Feliz, California.
Rupert and Liberty, who have two young children together, are believed to be trying to work through their issues and save their marriage.
A source is quoted telling The Guardian: "She is prepared to give Rupert a second chance.
"She accepts that it was just one of those silly flirtations."
