Kristen Stewart is speaking publicly about the scandal for the first time. In an interview at TIFF promoting 'On the Road', in her first public appearance since the cheating scandal, she was asked about how she and Robert Pattinson would handle their promotional duties for 'Breaking Dawn: Part 2'. She replied "We're going to be fine. We're totally fine."
This is pretty much the only time Stewart opened up about her relationship troubles, especially as all the media outlets were given strict instructions on what they were and weren't allowed to ask Stewart on the red carpet.
Lainey from Lainey Gossip is also reporting that people at TIFF were told that Pattinson and Stewart were still together, in some form or another, and that they haven't officially broken up yet, but they're trying not to make it big news because they're afraid of how it will affect his career. It's an interesting choice to keep a lid on this - if it is true that they are still together, it would boost Stewart's image in some manner.
People (especially Twilight fans) may forgive her easier if Pattinson apparently has. However, what will the public reaction be to Pattinson if it turns out he went back to his cheating girlfriend? It was common knowledge that Pattinson adored Stewart, but the scandal had to have humiliated him and really made him think about whether their relationship was on the right course. It seems as if both want to keep the status of their relationship secret from the public, mostly for the sake of their careers right now.
Stewart's appearance in Toronto was also met with mass media coverage - every major press outlet was there, along with a majority of her fans who were still incredibly supportive of her.
Some people reportedly screamed names at her, but they were few and far between. The majority were said to be supportive, even the movie itself was met with mixed reviews. Most reviewers are singling out the performances as the best part of the movie, although everyone says the movie still lacks the inspiration that made Kerouac's novel such a classic.
