After nearly five months of keeping quiet about her scandalous affair with married director Rupert Sanders, Twilight star Kristen Stewart has finally opened up about her behaviour.

The last time Stewart spoke of her cheating scandal with the Snow White and the Huntsman director was in July, when she issued a public apology to boyfriend Robert Pattinson and, for the first time, publicly declared her love for the 26-year-old Brit.

But in a recent interview with UK's The Sun newspaper, Stewart opened up about her "momentary indiscretion", even revealing she stayed cooped up in her hotel room to escape the media frenzy.

"You have to be OK with your own fears," she said.

"If you're an honest person you'll make mistakes, but that's when the most interesting things happen.

"I used to just stay in my hotel room rather than deal with everything, but if you get too caught up in what others think you become a really disjointed person."
