Bill Condon: Please respect Kristen Stewart!

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart

It’s been a couple weeks since everyone found out that Kristen Stewart was totally biting on some married father’s lower lip behind Robert Pattinson‘s back, HOW COULD SHE BREAK EDWARD CULLEN’S HEART, HE LOVES YOU BELLA SWAN EVEN IF HE IS A BORDERLINE EMOTIONALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY ABUSIVE VAMPIRE?! Ahem, sorry, I get caught up in books that glorify unhealthy relationships. Anyway, Bill Condon, the director of the upcoming final Twilight Saga movie was worried that this would put a damper on The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn: Part 2, so here he is trying to convince everyone to see it anyway, while showing the actors some respect.

Fans have turned on the actress after she confessed to a fling with her married Snow White & the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. The big reveal appears to have ended her romance with Twilight co-star Pattinson.

And as the couple’s legion of followers attempt to deal with their own heartbreak about the break-up, filmmaker Condon is asking them to be as respectful to the former couple as Pattinson and Stewart have been to fans.

He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, “The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that.

“Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the Twilight movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon.

“They have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”

Wait, really? Because I think both of them went on the record bad-mouthing their characters in the Twilight Saga and coming clean that the relationship depicted in the series is grossly unhealthy, but they continue to show up in the movies and cash the paychecks. So yeah, tons of respect for their fans. Anyway, personally, if you’re not going to see the Twilight movie, don’t let it be because you can’t separate the actors from their characters; let it be because the movies are just not good.
