Emma Watson is definitely on 'Team Bella.' In a recent interview with Vanity Fair Italy the 'Harry Potter' star went on the record about Kristen Stewart's affair with Rupert Sanders and how the media managed to distort it all.
"Those who criticized her are the same people that think that being rich and famous is like being covered in some kind of magic powder that makes life perfect: Nothing can go wrong in your wonderful world," Watson said. "For these people, Kristen deserves all the bad things that have been thrown at her because she had an amazing life and she ruined it."
Watson went on to say Stewart's mistake is a common one for people her age and that it was the media who blew the entire thing out of proportion.
“I don’t know how to explain it, but it sure isn't perfect. I thought that the media picked on her in a very horrible way. Kristen is human, just like everybody else, and she’s so young. Everyone makes mistakes, everyone. It’s not fair to consider them matters of public interest.”
Nevertheless, the 22-year-old actress can understand why the public was so upset.
“On one hand, I can understand why it happened: people felt really involved in her relationship with Robert Pattinson. But it’s also true that they both have done everything in their power to keep their relationship as far from the public eye as possible.”
