'I Lit My Universe On Fire' - Kristin Stewart Speaks Out On THAT Affair With Rupert Sanders

She has mostly remained schtum since her affair with director Rupert Sanders hit the headlines but Kristin Stewart has now opened up about the scandal in a new interview.

Stewart was in a relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson when she was photographed kissing Snow White And The Huntsman director Saunders in 2012.

At the time, Sanders was married to model Liberty Ross, mother of his two children, and the affair caused both relationships to come to an end.

In a new interview with Marie Claire, Stewart talked about "starting over after a batsh*t crazy year".

"I lit my universe on fire and I watched it burn. Speaking very candidly, it was a really traumatic period in my early 20s that kick-started something in me that was a bit more feral."



She is now believed to be dating her assistant Alicia Cargile and told the magazine that she had learned to take a more rational approach to her life.

"I’m really proud that I am able to move forward and not fall into every mental crater. That’s a new thing for me. Age has made me smarter and calmer. And it is f***ing awesome," she said.

"Between ages 15 and 20, it was really intense. I was constantly anxious. I was kind of a control freak. If I didn’t know how something was going to turn out, I would make myself ill, or just be locked up or inhibited in a way that was really debilitating."
