Kristen Stewart returns to the spotlight at Toronto Film Festival
TORONTO (AP) - Twilight's Kristen Stewart made her first public appearance in nearly two months on Thursday night at the Toronto Film Festival.
The 22-year star went into lockdown mode after she publicly apologised for having a tryst with the married director of her last film, Snow White And The Huntsman. For her return, hundreds of fans eagerly gathered early in the morning on Thursday, awaiting her walk on the red carpet for her latest film, On The Road. It's based on a classic Jack Kerouac novel, and one of Stewart's favourite books.
I'm somebody that has loved the book their whole life," Stewart said, first reading it at age 14.
Dressed in a slinky, floral Zuhair Murad dress, the young actress held her head high but, at times, showed signs of nervousness. On several occasions, she broke away from the press line to greet fans behind the barricade. It seemed her fans were providing the support she needed to carry on through the mobbed press event.
