But fellow attendees back stage at the ceremony detected some tension between them away from cameras, with a source telling the New York Post: 'Rob and Kristen were having a long and intense conversation backstage, and he looked miserable, heartbroken and humiliated. She was pleading.'
The actor made his feelings regarding
infidelity clear in April, telling Vanity Fair: 'There's a thing I've
never got: That is, why do people cheat'
He explained that while he 'can
understand the impulse' to cheat, he doesn't comprehend 'how you can
keep two relationships going at the same time for long.'
'I'm not the casual-affair kind of
guy,' he said. 'If I choose to be with someone, it's because I really
want it. When I have a relationship, I'm 100 percent into it.'
Kristen said in her apology statement: 'I love [Rob], I’m so sorry.'
The star has not emerged since details of the dalliance hit the press.
Us Weekly detailed the liaison, with a source saying Rupert was 'all over' Kristen.
Another source added they 'would only take a
break [from kissing] when they thought someone was walking by.'

A photographer followed Kristen from her Los Feliz home and
when the actress pulled into the parking lot of a deserted building and
Rupert got into her car.
The source explained: 'It seemed like they couldn't get enough. Kristen
was sitting up with her back against the driver's-side window, and this
guy was kissing her entire body.'
The pair left when they thought they were being watched and drove to an
area near the Hollywood sign and Kristen appeared 'swept up in the
moment' as they kissed and cuddled outside the car.
While the area they were in was quite deserted, they were disturbed by
some dog walkers and each time 'as soon as they heard a voice, they
would split up and walk in opposite directions'.
