After the affair between Kristen Stewart and her married "Snow White and the Huntsman" director, Rupert Sanders, went public in the summer of 2012, they each apologized to their significant others and went their separate ways — or so it seemed.
"They are still in contact, and incredibly Rupert is still hoping for a future together. But Kristen has come to her senses and doesn't want to damage her image more," a source tells Radar Online. "Even though he has admitted to everyone in his life that the long-brewing affair was a terrible idea, he still hasn't been able to get over his feelings for Kristen.
"He fell in love with her a long time before he laid a finger on her, and he's finding it difficult to shake."
While Stewart has since parted ways with then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson and Sanders was served divorce papers by wife Liberty Ross, a reunion doesn't seem likely, despite what Sanders might want. "Rupert, against all better judgment, still holds out hope that he and Kristen can get things going again, but he's completely deluded," the source explains. "She would never put her career on the line like that again."
