Kristen Stewart said she struggled mightily in the days following her affair with "Snow White and the Huntsmen" director Rupert Sanders became public five months ago, but hinted that ordeal made her a stronger person.
"You have to be OK with your own fears," the "Twilight" star told Britain's The Sun. "If you're an honest person you'll make mistakes, but that's when the most interesting things happen."
Being chased nonstop by the paparazzi and having Robert Pattinson fans call you names on the Internet is now "interesting?"
The 22-year-old actress admitted she struggled with the media spotlight, but found a way to move on from her the affair.
"I used to just stay in my hotel room rather than deal with everything," she said. "But if you get too caught up in what others think you become a really disjointed person."

"You should never step outside of your life and look at it like it's this malleable thing you can shape so that people view it a certain way," Stewart said. "I would never not have gone to something like that. I've been working on this for five years. I love this movie. I'm so proud of everyone involved -- I feel so strong standing next to

With the fans and stuff, it's just human energy that you simply cannot deny. People are standing there and sort of screaming for you and I'm not about to turn my back and walk away and go get warm inside, you know what I mean?"
Yes. Yes, we do.
Stewart and Pattinson, 26, are back together. They promoted the final film in the "Twilight" franchise, "Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" in November. "On The Road" opens in limited release on Dec. 21.
