Kristen Stewart may have been one of the most popular young starlets on the scene, what with her romantic relationship with Robert Pattinson, her blockbuster film cred and her cool-girl style and attitude. Her likeability factor, though, took a major hit after news broke and photos surfaced confirming her cheating scandal with Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, instantly catapulting her into the status of a bigger villain than the Evil Queen herself. Co-stars like Charlize Theron reportedly denounced her actions, fans rallied against her (she's even rumored to be receiving hate mail) and Sanders' wife, Liberty Ross, must have some incredibly negative feelings towards the actress.
Of course, it would seem that Stewart's British boyfriend might be her biggest opponent at this time, given the emotional pain and perhaps the embarrassment that she's caused him. But relationship expert, Dr. Phil Dembo, believe she is actually her own worst enemy.
He told Hollywood Life, "Kristen Stewart does need help. She is in a free fall. She has destroyed all that matters to her and seems to have given up trying. Kristen needs counseling or therapy to look at several important issues." Dr. Dembo certainly has a rather dramatic take on Stewart's situation and her indiscretion. She's obviously dealing with some tough backlash, both personally and professionally, but hopefully it will blow over and be replaced by another scandal in young Hollywood.
Still, Dr. Dembo referenced three issues that seem to be problematic in Stewart's psyche, including her "I don't care attitude," her missing "strength" when it comes to integrity, and her seeming self-sabotage when she had a "new movie, great boyfriend, celeb status."
Regardless of this expert's analysis or any others, and aside from whatever enemy lines have been drawn for Stewart either externally or internally, her status atop the pedestal of celebrity obviously doesn't make her immune to making mistakes just like anyone else--hers are just in the spotlight for all to see.
