Emma Watson is sticking up for one of her own. In the most recent issue of Vanity Fair Italy, the Harry Potter star speaks out on how the Twilight star was treated during the very public scandal in which she cheated on her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson.
Opening up about the Kristen’s incident, Emma said, “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.”
However, Emma understands where the intrigue comes from, adding, “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.”
Emma also speaks about those critics who think celebrities have such easy lives, saying, “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. 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. I don’t know how to explain it, but it sure isn’t perfect.”
And Emma isn’t just saying these things for the sake of saying them. The two actresses, along with Jennifer Lawrence, all got together in NYC last November, and Kristen only had the nicest things to say, telling MTV “It was kind of a great feeling, to be honest. I was like, ‘This is kind of just awesome.’”
