In the aftermath of Kristen Stewart's cheating scandal, her boyfriend (or likely ex-boyfriend) Robert Pattinson has reportedly taken shelter at his friend and "Water for Elephants" co-star Reese Witherspoon's vacation home, and he's not the only one turning to famous friends at this difficult time.
RadarOnline reports that as Hollywood is buzzing that Stewart's "momentary indiscretion" with director Rupert Sanders could be the end of her career, Stewart has at least one Hollywood hotshot in her corner.
Stewart's mentor and "Panic Room" co-star Jodie Foster has reportedly offered the 22-year-old actress a shoulder to cry on.
“As soon as she heard the news, Jodie contacted Kristen to offer her support,” a source told the website. “They have been close friends since they starred opposite each other in the 2002 movie 'Panic Room,' and Jodie is a mother-like figure to her."
The source claims that Foster advised Stewart to ignore the intense media scrutiny, but if she ever wanted to "cry her heart out she's always available."
Foster and Stewart are incredibly close and while at Comic-Con in July, Foster told Us Weekly:
"I'm proud of [Kristen]. I feel like she's my daughter too!" she told the magazine, adding, "She's doing great. I just saw 'Snow White and the Huntsman,' which I thought was extraordinary and I thought she was absolutely brilliant in."
Ever since Stewart admitted to cheating on Pattinson, there have been a number of rumors that have proved false. RadarOnline also previously reported that Stewart's "Snow White and the Hunstman" co-star and pal Charlize Theron was furious with the actress about the affair. Those claims were quickly refuted by Gossip Cop, who were told by a source close to Theron that she's busy shooting a movie in Africa and hasn't involved herself with the scandal in any way.
Though reports about Theron may not have been true, it's likely that Foster did reach out to Stewart given their long history and close relationship. Plus, Foster has never been one to judge -- she stuck by Mel Gibson after he made a series of racist and anti-semitic rants. In 2011, Foster told The Hollywood Reporter:
"[Gibson is] so incredibly loving and sensitive, he really is. He is the most loved actor I have ever worked with on a movie. And he's not saintly, and he's got a big mouth, and he'll do gross things your nephew would do. But I knew the minute I met him that I would love him the rest of my life."
