After photos surfaced of the 22-year-old actress canoodling with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, 41, Stewart had to come clean and make an apology to the world.
"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.

Another famous mea culpa came from Hugh Grant after he was arrested in 1995 for lewd conduct with a prostitute in Los Angeles.
In a now-famous interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, Grant said, "I think you know in life what's a good thing to do and what's a bad thing, and I did a bad thing. And there you have it."
Then there's Kanye West, who apologized for interrupting Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Taking to Twitter, West wrote: "I'm sorry, Taylor... We're both artists, and the media and managers are trying to get between us. She deserves the apology more than anyone. Thank you [Twitter co-founders] Biz Stone and Evan Williams for creating a platform where we can communicate directly."
