Kristen Stewart is no longer the fairest of them all. It appears the fallout of Stewart's affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders has spilled from her personal life into her professional life. As if losing boyfriend of four years Robert Pattinson wasn't enough, the 22-year-old actress has reportedly been dropped from the follow-up to Snow White and the Huntsman. The consequences of Stewart's indiscretions are far-reaching. Instead of doing a sequel to the wildly popular film, Universal Studio has opted to do a spin-off with leading man Chris Hemsworth. Meanwhile, sources tell Radaronline.com Stewart will no longer be associated with the project. It's ironic considering initial reports had the studio firing Sanders, not Stewart. Now, it seems Universal may have had a change of heart. So far, it's being reported that the cheating father of two will be given another shot at success in the director's chair. That's good news for Sanders' estranged wife Liberty Ross, who supposedly laid down the law that the two philanderers will never, ever work together again. One insider told Radaronline.com: "Liberty let it be known in no uncertain terms that Rupert can’t direct the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman. They are trying to work things out after he was caught having an affair, and that is one of the sticking points. She just doesn’t want him to ever work with Kristen again. Rupert is obviously disappointed because Snow White and the Huntsman was his directorial debut, and he had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent reviews. But he knows his actions were inexcusable, and he’s going to have to bite the bullet and listen to his wife on this one." If the rumors are true, Sanders caught a major break on this one. Stewart, on the other hand, not so much.
