Kristen Stewart has made her first public appearance since her highly publicized split from “Twilight” series co-star Robert Pattinson, at the Toronto Film Festival.
The 22-year-old actress greeted fans and braved the crowd of photographers Thursday on the red carpet at the premiere of her latest movie, an adaptation of Jack Kerouc’s 1957 novel “On the Road.”
“I’m somebody that has loved the book their whole life,” Stewart told The Associated Press, saying that she first read the defining novel of the postwar beat generation when she was 14.
Fans flocked to the red carpet gala of the new movie to see Stewart, who wore a Zuhair Murad dress. At one point she broke away from the crowd to greet fans.
The typically press-shy Stewart received widespread public backlash after her affair with 41-year-old Rupert Sanders –the director of her last movie, “Snow White and the Huntsman” — led to the break-up with live-in boyfriend Pattinson. Stewart publicly apologized for the affair.
When asked about how she’s doing Thursday night, the actress replied, “I’m doing fine,” The AP reported.
In “On the Road” Stewart stars alongside British actor Sam Riley, Amy Adams and Kirsten Dunst. The film is slated for U.S. release Dec. 21.
