Their relationship ended with a scandal, when Stewart was caught making out with director Rupert Sanders in the front seat of her mom’s Mini Cooper. “When I was dating Rob, the public were the enemy — and that is no way to live,"Stewart tells the “Sunday Times.
"I hated it—that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world."The fallout over their breakup—particularly from blow-up as being generally traumatic," she admitted.But then I can't walk outside holding somebody's hand, as I'm followed everywhere," she says."When I was dating Rob, the public was the enemy—and that is no way to live."It would take someone with a really unhealthy amount of ego to be upset that everyone doesn't love them.It would be silly to say I don't care what people think of my work and who I am, but stuff is polarizing, period." Stewart changed her approach with relationships after Pattinson because she had an epiphany that her experience could help others.
