Kristen Stewart may have been fazed by all the attention lavished on the cheating scandal that drove a temporary wedge between herself and boyfriend Robert Pattinson, but that doesn’t mean she tuned in to the frenzy.

In a recent interview with French magazine Télé Star (via Hollyscoop), Kristen explained, “If I consider the opinion of others, respect for privacy, it can be very destructive. I decided not to pay attention.”

Or are her initial actions — the makeout sesh with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, which happened to be captured on camera to blame?
