British model Liberty Ross learned that her husband of 10 years, director Rupert Sanders, was cheating on her with his Snow White and the Huntsman star, Kristen Stewart, only 20 hours before paparazzi photos of Sanders and Stewart hugging and kissing were published in a magazine.
"It was horrible," Ross tells Vanity Fair. "It was really the worst, really the worst."
Stepping in to protect his sister was Ross's brother, Atticus Ross, the Oscar-winning composer of The Social Network.

A Snow White and the Huntsman sequel may hit the silver screen without, well, its Snow White.
On Tuesday, the Hollywood Reporter ran an article saying that Kristen Stewart will not be invited back to star in a planned sequel to last summer's Snow White and the Huntsman. Instead, the story said, the film would focus on Chris Hemsworth's Huntsman character, and it would begin shooting this summer once the actor's schedule is free.
Soon after, though, the Los Angeles Times reported that Stewart's future in the planned Snow White sequel was not yet determined and that she could still play a role in the Hemsworth-focused film.

Robert Pattinson – live in Times Square!
Hundreds of fans lined up overnight to see the star arrive at the Good Morning America studios on Wednesday, but those hoping to hear Pattinson, 26, pour out his broken heart over his long-term girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheating on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders might have walked away somewhat frustrated – and yet still enlightened.
Referring to the cheating scandal as the elephant in the room that could not be avoided, GMA co-anchor George Stephanopoulos pressed Pattinson on the subject, with the actor refusing the bait for as long as he possibly could. (He did, however, take one thing from the anchor: his his favorite cereal, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which Stephanopoulos presented to him at the top of the interview.)
"I've never been interested in selling my personal life," said Pattinson, who said he was there to promote his new movie, Cosmopolis, which opens Friday. Still, the actor acknowledged that his being on TV made him a target for personal questions.

Can the romance between Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart be saved?
In the wake of the cheating scandal that has rocked their three-year relationship, the two stars are not speaking to each other, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Pattinson, 26, and Stewart, 22, have both left the Los Angeles home they shared pre-scandal and are living separately elsewhere.
But they won't be able to avoid each other indefinitely: They are scheduled as co-presenters at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sept. 6, followed by their massive promotional tour for the final film in the Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn: Part 2, due out Nov. 16.

After their smoldering chemistry in the Twilight films, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson confounded their fans and bewildered prying reporters by keeping their real-life relationship cloaked in secrecy for as long as possible.
So it was Stewart's gut-wrenching apology to Pattinson, punctuated by her double "I love him, I love him," that shocked in its bare expression of emotion nearly as much as her admission of a fling with Rupert Sanders, the married director of Snow White and the Huntsman.
So how did Stewart, 22, go from private love to public pain? And were there any signs along the way? Here's a timeline of the key events leading up to the cheating scandal:

Robert Pattinson has packed his bags.
Following Kristen Stewart's public apology for having a fling with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, the 26-year-old actor has left the Los Angeles home he shared with Stewart, PEOPLE has confirmed.
"I'm not sure they'll be able to recover from this," a source says of the couple of three years, who met making the Twilight trilogy.
In seclusion and not in contact with Stewart, 22, the British star "is heartbroken and angry," says the source.

Before a cheating scandal rocked the lives of both Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders, the pair spent months together on the sets of Snow White and the Huntsman.
While filming SWATH, Sanders, 41, seemed infatuated with Stewart, 22, but it never went any further, a source tells PEOPLE. One of the reasons could be that Sanders's wife, actress-model Liberty Ross, starred alongside Stewart in the film, playing Snow White's mother. Sanders even cast the couple's two children, Skyla, 7, and Tennyson, 5, as extras in the film's final scene.
But a photo unearthed from May shows Stewart and Sanders enjoying dinner with a small group, which included fellow castmember Charlize Theron, at Berlin's Monsieur Vuong Vietnamese restaurant.
