Kevin Hart decided to "address the elephant in the room" by discussing Kristen Stewart's affair with Rupert Sanders at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Thursday.
"Everybody's mad at Kristen Stewart for making a mistake," Hart, 32, told the audience at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. "She allegedly messed around with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman. If she did, so what? It's over. Move on. Look on the bride side, they're now a part of the seven dwarfs. You've got sleepy, grumpy, adultery, cheating."
Stewart was caught cheating on her Twilight costar and real-life boyfriend of three years, Robert Pattinson, in mid-July. Us Weekly revealed the exclusive photos of Stewart and the married director, 41, engaged in a steamy makeout session.
"The point that I'm making is this, if you made a mistake . . . so what!" Hart said. And he wanted everyone to know he will be making mistakes hosting the award show. "I'm going to make mistakes because people made mistakes before. Kanye West . . . Britney Spears and Madonna when they kissed . . . Russell Brand hosted -- twice!"
Instead of attending the VMAs with her estranged boyfriend this year, Stewart made her post-scandal debut at the premiere of On the Road at the Toronto International Film Festival Thursday.
