It’s been tough for Kristen Stewart to be back out in public after revelations of an affair that led to her breakup with “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson.
Yet, tempting as it may have been, she didn’t pull out of her planned appearances over the weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival to plug her next movie, an adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s 1950s Beat Generation novel On the Road.
“We have been waiting for this thing to be unleashed for so long. It was sort of one of those situations where you just have to put yourself in your body and go appreciate the moment,” Stewart said in an interview.
“On the Road” comes out in December. The Toronto premiere on Thursday was Stewart’s first public appearance since, and she was greeted by hundreds of “Twilight” fans who came out to show support for the 22-year-old actress.
In November, Stewart faces some awkward public appearances when she and Pattinson will be promoting the final “Twilight” movie, but Stewart is confident they will get through that all right.
“We’re going to be fine,” Stewart said. “We’re totally fine.”
