Like most people, Kristen Stewart mistakes. Unlike most people, she’s also good at admitting them, thanks to some teachings from her mother.
Stewart has admitted that her affair with director Rupert Sanders during the filming of Snow White and the Huntsman was a mistake and she has now set her sites on stabilizing her relationship with Robert Pattinson. It may be a risk, but it’s one her mom is encouraging her to take.
A recent interview with Stewart’s mother Jules, indicates that Stewart has been taught it’s ok to take risks, in relationships and otherwise.
“Well I tried to raise my kids…I didn’t raise them to be children, I raised them to be adults,” Jules told alternative lifestyle website SuicideGirls in a recent interview (via Hollywood Life).
“That is a concept that might be lost on a lot of people,” she continued. “I also tried to make them understand that it’s OK to make mistakes, so don’t be afraid to have a go at doing something different. And in that vein of ‘I’m interested in this, let’s try it, let’s see what happens’ my kids have always been the first ones on the line ready to have a go at something different.”
That statement seems directly applicable to Stewart’s rocky relationship with Pattinson that has been made very public in recent weeks.
“Kristen is really missing Rob,” a close friend of Stewart’s told Hollywoodlife.com. “Regardless of their ‘romantic’ relationship, they are still really good friends. That is something that won’t change.”
So she hasn’t failed at friendship, but the romantic aspect of their relationship might be more of a risk.
“Kristen is not ready to say goodbye to this relationship, and will do whatever it takes to make it work,” the friend also said. “She is just being patient and spending a lot of time with her mom. Her mom has been very supportive and just keeps encouraging her to be true to herself and to keep things simple.”
Only time will tell if the relationship between the two Twilight stars will actually work out. But we can rest assured that if it doesn’t, Stewart will be the first to admit her mistakes in relation to it.
