Liberty Ross: 6 Things to Know About Rupert Sanders' Wife (ABC News)

Twihards are obviously in a tizzy over the shocking (shocking!) revelation this week that Kristen Stewart had cheated on her sparkly vampire-playing boyfriend Robert Pattinson with the director of "Snow White and the Huntsman," Rupert Sanders.

Pattinson has supposedly moved out of the couple's LA house and, in those fans' dreams, nursing his broken heart by reading their psychotically supportive tweets.

But what about the other person hurt by Stewart and Sanders' "marathon makeout session" -- Sanders' wife Liberty Ross? Who is she? Here's what we know about her...



Liberty Ross, Wife Of Rupert Sanders, Uses Instagram To Express Her Displeasure With Kristen Stewart

She's had a successful modeling career

In addition to appearing on the covers of Vogue, i-D, and Elle, she's also been featured in ad campaigns for major brands like Burberry, Chanel and Dior and walked the runway at fashion weeks in New York, Milan and Paris. I think she's a dead ringer for Rooney Mara, who played Lisbeth Salander in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo."

She was also in 'Snow White and the Huntsman'

Sanders cast his wife as Snow White's mother in the film. Though Liberty didn't share any scenes with Kristen Stewart, they were photographed together a bunch while promoting the film. Ross has also acted in a few other films, including the Madonna-directed film "W.E."

She's been married to Rupert Sanders for 10 years

The two met through Ross's brother, who's a good friend of Sanders. Just a few weeks ago, the couple and their two kids were vacationing in Hawaii, posting pictures of the fun they were having online. In his apology statement, Sanders said, "My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart."

However, two weeks ago, an interview with the magazine You revealed that though the couple had their problems, Ross felt they were in a good place. "Everything feels so amazing now," she told the magazine. "We rode through the really hard times and we stuck it out..."

She is now basically a stay-at-home mom

Sanders and Ross have two kids, ages 5 and 7, and ever since the couple moved to LA for Sanders' career, her focus has been on being a wife and mom. "I romanticized domesticity for a while, and loved having a shopping list of groceries stuck to the fridge for the first time," she once said. "But moving here and starting a life all over again was a lot harder than I had anticipated. I just didn't think it would be as isolating and daunting as it turned out to be ... I went from the glamour of working with Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano to living on an isolated hilltop, with my husband gone most of the time ... I would never say out loud that I am raising my children alone, but a lot of the time it has felt like that."

She starred in a short video about fetishism called 'Dollywood'

Just a few months ago, Liberty starred in a Patty Borland-directed short film for SHOWStudio called "Dollywood." The film, Liberty said, set out to "blur the line of primitive sexual fetishism with naive and childlike play. To me the act of dressing up, tying up and fetishism has its primal urges in childhood."

She's used social media as an outlet for her anger/sadness

Ross posted a photo of a crying and drunk Snow White on Instagram, writing, "Not so pretty or so pure after all…" in obvious reference to Kristen Stewart. Is a Facebook status update about Sanders on its way?

Possibly a bigger indicator of where Ross stands on her marriage appeared on her since-deleted Twitter account. When the cheating scandal broke, Ross retweeted the following: "Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
