Jodie Foster: 'Comforts' Kristen Stewart after Robert Pattinson cheating scandal
Much-troubled actress Kristen Stewart has apparently been receiving emotional support from Jodie Foster following her recent cheating scandal.
In July, the Twilight actress admitted to being unfaithful to boyfriend Robert Pattinson during what was described as a "brief fling" with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
Robert Pattinson has allegedly asked Stewart to move out of their shared California home.
The actress, who has been close with Foster since the pair starred together in the 2002 film Panic Room, looked to the older star in the wake of the scandal, reports Radar Online.
"As soon as she heard the news, Jodie contacted Kristen to offer her support. 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," a source told the website.
"Jodie told Kristen to take no notice of the media bashing and said if she wanted to cry her heart out to her she's always available. Jodie loved Rob and is disappointed with Kristen for cheating on him.
"However, she knows at 22, she's still very young and unfortunately people make mistakes in life. She thinks Kristen will learn from this and will only grow into a more mature person because of it."
Pattinson is thought to be staying at Reese Witherspoon's ranch following the split to avoid media attention.
