Why Kristen Stewart Dropped Out of 'Cali'; Amber Heard, Carey Mulligan Eyed as Replacement (EXCLUSIVE DETAILS)

Kristen Stewart has dropped out of the Nick Cassavetes movie Cali in attempt to win back Robert Pattinson, a source close to the production has revealed to Celebuzz.

"She is so distraught over Rob that she can't focus on anything but getting him back," the source, who asked not to be identified but was briefed on her decision, said Thursday.

"She can't bare to be without Rob."

In doing so, Stewart -- who in July was caught cheating on Pattinson with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders -- has put those still involved with Cali in a major bind, the source revealed.

After the jump, get the scoop on who's in the running to replace Stewart.

The reason: Stewart had spent the past few months working as a producer on the project, which allowed her to oversee the selection of its director (Cassavetes) and her co-star (Alex Pettyfer). Both Cassavetes and Pettyfer were said to have turned down other projects to work with Stewart, according to the source.

 

"Everyone has been so understanding of her current situation," the source said. "Despite film scheduling and budget, [they were] willing to give her the time necessary to recover from the media storm.

"But it doesn't seem to matter. She's lost all interest in work and the projects that she was so passionate about just two weeks ago. Even though everyone has been pulling for her and trying to encourage her to stay on, the star's main focus remains on Rob and what she can do to get him back."

As of Thursday, some of Hollywood's biggest names have been mentioned as possible replacements for Stewart, including Amber Heart (The Rum Diary) and Oscar-nominated beauty Carey Mulligan (An Education; The Great Gatsby). The film, about a couple who comes out of hiding to save the girlfriend's sister, is supposed to hit theaters next year.

 

On July 25, the same day that US Weekly released photos exposing her affair with Sanders, Stewart released a statement apologizing for her actions.

"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected," Stewart said. "This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."

In wake of the scandal, Pattinson, 26, is said to have moved out of the home the couple shared in Los Angeles. After keeping a low profile over the last couple of weeks, he's expected to make his first public appearance Monday on The Daily Show.

He'll follow with an appearance on Tuesday's Good Morning America.

    NO need to be rude 212! I'm not saying I know anything more than anyone else! What we all know is that the bitch cheated!!!! And why should I shut up about that?!

  • Agreed
    Agreed

    I really hope Rob speaks up and says something next week in defense of himself and Kristen. Tells people to mind their own business and let them work this out on their own terms and in their own time. It's really no ones business but their own and all the cheating talk really needs to stop. He could shut that down completely by saying point blank he's never been a cheater with any of those women and their working on getting past Kristen's own indiscretion right now. That doesn't mean they'll get back together but at least they can try to forgive and move on as colleagues/friends again. I hope his team advises him that would be the best thing to do for BOTH of them right now, or if not he just does it on his own. He's always kind of done that and not followed what his handlers said to do anyway. He's been his own person. That would nip this all in the bud. Period.

    word is ballenciaga might be dropping her from the ad campaigns. apparently their ran their commercial teaser without featuring her as the spokesperson and taystew hinted at somthing about it on facebook recently. if that happens i know i won't be buying it. kristen still has a lot of fans despite her fall out with pattinson and they won't buy the perfume if kristen's dropped. no one will be buying it at all then. the media has overblown this by tremendous proportions.

    What I hear about Kristen I will be her fan and go out and support her projects and buy her perfume too. And to the haters that think they are convincing anyone with all their noise and nastiness, they are achieving the contrary... more support and love for Kristen. Each new pathetic youtube video makes me want to give her a bear hug and stand by her taller than ever :^)

    Shut your trap Rose, you know just as much as we all do until Monday when Rob gives him interview. You may think you know the whole story, but there are SO many false accusations going around, so the only time you'll know the FULL truth, is on Monday, so i suggest you keep your mouth closed til then, CIAO! xxx

    yeah, she is sorry but only because she got caught you don't go around doing that but if he takes her back that means he really loves her. I would hope she wouldn't make the same mistake twice. why feel sorry for her now, I don't you don't do that to your soul mate lover and love of your life!

  • Rose

    Behind the scenes at TCA they were seen acting happy as any normal couple! You're implying that he already knew then and continued to play the happy BF until the pics came out!? Why would he do that?! It what makes me so sad for him cause up until two days before the pics came out he was completely ignoring what a heartless bitch he had for a GF!!

  • Mi

    So what is this? We should feel sorry for her! The bitch did her bed now she has to go lay in it! The only one I'm sorry for is Rob! She cheated on him and she only confessed cause she got caught! (The Sunday before the pics came out she was playing the perfect girlfriend behind the scenes of TCA) and she humiliated him in front of the world!! He deserves better!!!

  • Rob's own cheating history
    Rob's own cheating history

    Some of this sh it is going to come to light and it’s going to bite Rob in the azz if he dumps Kristen for this thing with her director. This is not going to go away and it’s going to get worse for him before it gets better. If he forgives he and takes her back (at least publicly) he might be able to avoid the backlash. Otherwise they’re going to start coming out of the woodwork against him and it’s going to be Tiger Woods all over again. She’s the one who got caught, but he’s been doing it for a long long LONG time before this. While these stories of him hooking up with other woman haven't yet been 100% proven with high definition pictures (because there have been multiple sightings by fans and random people of him with these and other women), he’s only gotten a free pass on all this so far because Kristen has always stuck by him through it all and looked the other way despite the constant cheating surrounding him. This is not going to go away if he dumps her permanently. He’s going to reap a huge backlash so he’d better think wisely before condeming her for something that he’s done since the beginning of their ‘relationship.’ She’s not the only guilty party here. If he wants to keep this all under wraps and out of the mainstream media (as in not just in the comments section on gossip sites), then he’d better be careful. Kristen was stupid with how she handled her affair. Will Rob be smarter than she was? We shall see.

  • Rob's own cheating history
    Rob's own cheating history

    He was hooking up with his director David Cronenberg’s youngest daughter Caitlin during Cosmopolis filming that following summer, hitting lots of late night hot spots and parties "spreading their DNA" all over Toronto together. Kristen was asked not to visit him on location at this time. He was hooking up with LA bar sk anks like that Shea Marie chick who tweeted she shared “Jameson and Gingers” with him at Jimmy Fallon’s Emmy after-party and went back to Rob’s house to hang out following. There were all the bars he was hitting in Los Feliz and Silverlake closing them down at 2-3am every night while Kristen was busy in London filming Snow White and the Huntsman, girls tweeting about sharing drinks and ciggies with him on the patio and him flirting it up with them. He only visited London once while Kristen was filming in his hometown and not again until the very end after he'd finished the international promo tour for Breaking Dawn 1. There were the Sarah Roemer hook up pics and word that she went home with him from Soho House after they’d been partying with friends all night there and at La Poubelle. There were the Katy Perry texting stories that he’d been trying to console and hook up with her after her break up with Russel Brand–something that Kristen completely covered for him for I might add. There were the Lindsay Lohan cheating rumors AGAIN after that (didn’t believe those were true though-Linsday is too gross now even for bottom feeders like Pattinson). He gave an interview saying he frequented the KittyKat Club in Berlin when he was in town-a known fetish club where people openly engage in lewd acts and group sex.

    Rob's own cheating history

    Robert Pattinson has been cheating on Kristen Stewart since the start of their relationship. He hooked up with Megan Fox AFTER the Twilight premiere in Tokyo when he first got together with Kristen. He was sleeping with Nikki Reed at the start of New Moon filming and Ashley Greene all throughout. He hooked up with that Erika Dutra chick in Cannes that year and Camilla Belle in NYC when she went to visit him there during Remember Me filming. There were rumors of him and Emilie de Ravin having and on-set fling that same summer during filming. He was cheating with Ashley Greene again during Eclipse filming that fall while Kristen was on set. There were the rumors of him leaving Leighton Meester’s apartment in NYC early the next year. He cheated with some burlesque dancer Caroline Jones during Bel Ami filming in London causing him to be late for Eclipse reshoots and also his co-star Natalia Tena who he’d already had a history with before too. He cheated with Lindsay Lohan during Water for Elephants filming in LA that summer at Las Palmas and was photographed with bartender Nancee Bingenheimer from Saddleranch crawling all over this lap poolside at the Thompson hotel that July after Kristen had already left for Montreal to begin On the Road filming. There were rumors that he was going to co ke parties in Malibu and hooking up with sk anks like Teresa Palmer then too. He continued seeing Ashley Greene in Baton Rouge and was hooking up with Maggie Grace during Breaking Dawn filming while they back in Vancouver, spotted leaving her hotel frequently while Kristen was in LA. There was the Slovenian model Ana Colja who was interviewed saying how she’d been ‘close’ with Rob since attending the Oscars with him years back and they still saw each other all the time and were very happy together.

    and if she feels she can't do the picture justice and is too depressed to act, then there's no way around it. were they supposed to delay the film months and months until she's rebounded? of course not. no one can expect an entire production to postpone until next year until kristen is good to work again. think before you type for a change-if you're capable of any logical thought at all that is, which i seriously doubt.

  • jey

    By the way, it's nice to hear that Casavettes and Alex Pettyfer dropped their other projects just to work with her. That still says a lot about Kristen's credibility in the movie industry. She's a force.

  • jill

    Very few people are turning on her. You don't know exactly what you're talking about. There are fan vids of support from all over the world posted on YouTube by fans themselves just to show their love for Kristen. Her real fans, who are more concerned of her career than her personal life, are still supporting and admiring her. Whatever mistake she did doesn't define her professional life.

    Please stop lying, this is Kristen's team plan to handle this " Kristen loves Rob and she is suffering" they know people are turning on her because she hurt Rob so they are trying to make it seem like she is devastated when in fact she is still with Sanders living together in Malibu. Ruth you should resign right now.

    people like you need to stop saying she cheated on him for weeks cos you know f**k all and only what the media is saying.i don't know what happened but i aint going to judge her.she is human,we all do dumb things or make an error in judgement.

  • lv013

    I'm just wondering if most of the comments I read are made by humans or robots. Kristen and Rob are REAL people trying to live in a REAl life. The fairytale off screen has not been played the way the world wants. Things happen for a reason and life is one big lesson where you never stop learning. It's only now that Rob, beyond all of the media and fan B.S.will see the real Kristen for the first time. She has been stripped to the core with nothing left. She loves him completely and he will always love her. She may have failed him as his girlfriend but she won't fail him as his wife.

    if Rupert and Kristen are capable of cheating while Rob and Liberty are nearby how much more overseas away from suspecting eyes,they cant control themselves cheating on the broad daylight in the opened how much more when they were abroad with so much oppurtunities to cheat.they already had sex with each other this is not a momentary indiscretion.this been going on for a while.what if they didnot get caught ?how long this affair will go on? how could she look Rob in the eyes as if nothing happened when she came home that day after cheating on him.Rob is not stupid He can figure it out by looking at the pictrues.he is very intelligent and smart has class and moral.Kristen know what Rob standing and beliefs about cheating but she did it anyway.she need to reap what she sowed

    She has humiliated herself, hurt the person she loves the most and involved herself in someone else's marriage and family. I think it is time to call off the dogs. I am not condoning what she has done, I am saying, enough is enough. She is obviously suffering, let's not add to her misery. I cannot imagine the regret she is feeling, but please understand I am not putting her misery ahead of Rob and Liberty's, but she is the one getting crucified. Let us have compassion, except for Rupert. He's just a dick.

  • stormer

    Um no she didn't make a mistake, she made a choice to cheat on the person she claims to "respect and Love." Just like Rupert made a choice to cheat on his wife. Rob doesn't have to anything and he doesn't owe Kristen his forgiveness. If he does good on him but that is his choice... not Robsten fans.

  • Vivienne

    Oh good, another nameless close source. Insert eye roll*. And she only cares now because she got caught cheating on him and humiliating him to the world. Was even smiling at the cameras. It's all a sham. I doubt she is remorseful, only so because she got caught. If she didn't she would still be sleeping with that director and the bf wouldn't know a thing. But then again it's no one's business but theirs. Just don't be so gullible to listen to gossips by socalled sources. JS.

    Oh please, she didn't give a sh*t about Rob as she let Rupert feel her up in the middle of a parking lot. I don't buy for one second that she is concerned about him now. This is just more of her PR team trying to spin a "pity sad little Kristen" story. Rob is sticking to his work obligations, she should do the same.

    amen. I was a Robsten fan before but I’m srsly sick of the lame excuses and delusions and I can’t turn a blind eye to the shit I see. I don’t know how these people can. The trust between the two of them has been destroyed. She publicly betrayed and humiliated him.

    I don't understand why people want them back together. She cheated on him for weeks. Lied to his face. Didn't even have the decency to tell him until she got caught. She'd STILL be cheating if Us Weekly hadn't got those pictures. It's obvious she's not in love with him and doesn't respect him. They both need to move on. Getting back together would be the worst thing for both of them.
