Kristen Stewart Pulls Out Of ‘On The Road’ Premiere

Although is preparing to emerge into the public eye to promote his new film, ‘Cosmopolis,’ isn’t ready yet. She’s opted not to attend the premiere of her upcoming release, ‘.’ A source told :

“Kristen won’t be doing the red carpet for On The Road – she’s too ashamed to show her face in public right now. After everything that has been said, and in light of the revelations that she cheated on Robert with director Rupert Sanders, she’s running scared at the moment.

“There’s also the dilemma of standing next to her co-star in the movie, Tom Sturridge. He’s very close to Rob and Kristen thinks it would be awkward for her to promote the movie on the red carpet alongside him.

“Kristen is very proud of her work for On The Road, she grew up reading Kerouac novels and this is a production she always wanted to star in. If she appears at the London premiere, it will detract people from the movie itself and Kristen doesn’t want that at all. She wants her performance and this film to be recognized for what itis – a great adaptation of a classic book.”

I don’t blame Kristen for not wanting to come out in public, but I’m not sure this is the best move. She isn’t the star of ‘On The Road’ (the main characters are played by Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley), although she’s the most high-profile actor in the movie. Kristen could make a brief appearance on the red carpet and leave the interviews up to them. She’d be over the hurdle of making her first public appearance post-scandal.

Making her first public appearance at ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2′ events, where she will be Front and Center, seems MUCH harder. And something tells me Summit isn’t going to accommodate her request not to attend the ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2′ promotional events…
