Kristen still in hiding

Kristen Stewart is reportedly refusing to talk about ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson.

The star has been keeping a low profile since news of her fling with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders broke, and is expected to remain in hiding until next month's Toronto Film Festival, after which she will go into full promotional mode to sell her latest movie On the Road.

However, the actress does not plan on doing any interviews addressing her cheating scandal.

A source close to the actress revealed to Radar Online: "Kristen has been hiding ever since the story of her affair with Rupert broke - and she doesn't plan on breaking that habit just yet.

"Unlike Rob, who faced the music and threw himself into promoting his new movie Cosmopolis, Kristen isn't comfortable with facing a barrage of questions about the cheating scandal."

Friends have apparently advised the Twilight Saga star to "face the music" as soon as possible and smooth over her public image, but Stewart is reportedly terrified of the backlash from fans of the vampire franchise.

The insider continued: "Her pals have urged her to follow Robert's lead and do some interviews for On The Road - just to get it over and done with. The sooner she faces the music, the quicker it will all end and the media glare will fall on someone else.

"However, Kristen is scared. The backlash from her Twilight fans has upset her - she's lost and doesn't know what to do."
