While the Women's March and inauguration of Donald Trump swept the news at large over the weekend, American Ultra star Kristen Stewart is preparing to host Saturday Night Live for the skit show's upcoming episode after a month-long hiatus. Following on from stand up comedian and Master of None lead Aziz Ansari, Stewart spoke about the conduct of the president regarding his opinions on social media and her relationship to Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson circa 2012.
Talking to Variety on the eve of her movie Come Swim at the Sundance Film Festival, the 26-year old actress was not backward in coming forward about the billionaire's online remarks.
“He was mad at me a couple years ago!” said Stewart. “He was really obsessed with me, which was f***ing crazy, like what? I can’t even understand it.”
Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again--just watch. He can do much better!

Millions March As Celebs Lead Call To Arms
Some critics believed Stewart was a fading force when the Twilight franchise wound down to a close, but the Los Angeles native is now a box office regular, standing out in new features including Personal Shopper, Equals and Clouds of Sils Maria. Out in Park City, Utah over the weekend with the Women's March, the Cafe Society star outlined why she held a sign supporting Planned Parenthood as the protest movement grew larger, indicating that she was comfortable being a public advocate.
“I’ve never been the most politically charged person, but at this point,” Stewart argued, “it’s not political. It’s f***ing so humanitarian.”
The biggest headlines at the march came from recording artist Madonna, dropping back-to-back F bombs on stage as she held the microphone on international television. Joining the likes of Jane Fonda, Natalie Portman, Alicia Keys, Mindy Kaling, Amy Schumer and Maggie Gyllenhaal, the event was a whose who of elite females as the crowds surged in the US and around the world.

While her own microphone failed just as she was getting her message out to the people, actress Scarlett Johansson still found time to ask the American people and new administration to put their differences aside and make progress. The 32-year old Don Jon and Captain America: Civil War star sought a compassionate ear to the Republican.
"I didn't vote for you," remarked Johansson. "But I want to be able to support you. But first I ask that you support me."
