Rupert Sanders may have alluded to his affair with Kristen Stewart prior to his public admission as he is seen doting over the actress in a new video.
The "Snow White and the Huntsman" director made interesting statements about Stewart during the film's June 29 Los Angeles premiere and some critics suspect that his words may be proof that he is in love with the 22-year-old.
"She's pretty damn good actually, she outruns most she's very live and physical ... she runs like a sprinter ... she's very powered and she'll put herself in there. If the role demands it she'll throw herself off a cliff, or jump off a horse or whatever needs to be done," Sanders is heard telling a reporter.
"She's very spirited, very driven ... she's got the weight of the world on her shoulder she's been in the prison of 'Twilight' for many years ... so when I met [Kristen], I was very taken by this rebellious, very tough girl," he went on.
Sanders, 41, publicly admitted to cheating on Liberty Ross, his 33-year-old wife of 10 years, with Stewart after intimate photos of their tryst were released by the media.
The father of two then went on to discuss the relationships between cast members and film crew and admitted that they all got on "very well."
"It's always hard when you're casting people who haven't worked together, who have no kind of prior relationships and it's ... you know we all kind of fell in it together and those relationships kind of blossomed," Sanders said.
"We're a very tight unit of people making the film, although it's a big film it felt very small. It's great to collaborate with people and luckily we all got along very well," Sanders added.
Stewart, who has dated her "Twilight" Rob Pattinson for over three years, also publicly admitted to the affair but insists that she is "deeply sorry."
"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry," Stewart said in a public statement.
