Rupert Sanders Calls Kristen Stewart 'Amazing' On 'Snow White' DVD Feature

Oh, well this is awkward for everyone.

"Snow White and the Huntsman" will be released on DVD on Sept. 11 and the film's director, Rupert Sanders, is probably regretting a few of the things he said on the commentary track.

Compromising photos of Sanders, 41, and the film's star Kristen Stewart were published in July, prompting Stewart to issue a public apology for her "momentary indiscretion" with the married director.

Us Weekly managed to snag a copy of the DVD, and reports that Sander's commentary lends insight into his feelings towards the 22-year-old actress.

"First time we see Kristen Stewart!" Sanders says with audible excitement in his voice, as Stewart appears as the titular character. "This is the first dialogue I shot with her, I said maybe you do a prayer. Her accent was flawless, she did such an amazing job on it."

Sanders reportedly continued to gush over Stewart's performance:

"Kristen was amazing. I'd sit down with Kristen at lunch and say, "What do you think?" he recalled in the commentary.

Though their "momentary indiscretion" is said to have taken place months after the film finished shooting, it's rather telling that Sanders can be heard jokingly telling Stewart off-camera, "I loved getting off with you," following a scene where she shared a kiss with actor Sam Clafin, whose character is supposed to be possessed by Charlize Theron's evil Queen.

Things become even more awkward after learning that Sanders' wife and mother to their two young children, Liberty Ross, appears briefly at the beginning of the film and in the voice over. Sanders says, "That's actually my wife!" when she appears on screen.

In the weeks since the cheating scandal came to light, the media has extensively documented the fallout between Stewart and her "humiliated and brokenhearted" boyfriend Robert Pattinson, and their relationship looks like it's over. Sanders and Ross' relationship hasn't garnered quite so much attention, but it was reported that the model had issued a list of demands that her cheating husband must agree to if he wants to save their marriage. The Daily Mail reported that Ross demanded that Sanders make only one film a year, and join her in counseling among other things.

If the couple is trying to work things out, it's safe to say that Sanders' DVD commentary isn't going to earn him any points with Ross.
