A day after US Weekly obtained photos of Kristen Stewart's "steamy rendezvous" with married director Rupert Sanders, the 22-year-old "Twilight" star has released a statement publicly apologizing to boyfriend Robert Pattinson for what she called a "momentary indiscretion."

Soon after, 41-year-old Sanders, who directed Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman," also issued a statement apologizing to his wife, model Liberty Ross, and the couple's two young children.

The blogosphere -- and "Twilight" fans everywhere -- may be shocked by the affair, but Stewart and Sanders are hardly the first pair to cheat after meeting on the set of a movie. Click through the slideshow below for six of Hollywood's most shocking on-set affairs.

  • Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

    In 2004, rumors surfaced that co-stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were doing more than just acting on the set of the action flick "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." Pitt, who was married to Jennifer Aniston at the time, would go on to <a href="http://www.justjared.com/2009/01/07/brad-pitt-denies-angelina-jolie-affair/" target="_hplink">deny the affair allegations</a>, as did <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20004139,00.html" target="_hplink">Jolie</a>, but tabloid reports continued nonetheless. In March 2005, <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,1042412,00.html" target="_hplink">Aniston filed for divorce</a> from Pitt. Still, Jolie raised eyebrows again in October 2008, when she told the <em>New York TImes </em>that she <a href="http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/27242037/ns/today-entertainment/t/brangelina-affair-started-mr-mrs-smith/#.UBA4dzHLyRk" target="_hplink">looks forward to the day her six children with Pitt can watch "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."</a> "Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love," Jolie said.

  • Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

    Before there was Brangelina, there was Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Screen siren Taylor famously took up with British thespian Burton while filming 1963's "Cleopatra." The only problem? Both were married at the time -- Taylor to fourth husband Eddie Fisher and Burton to Sybil Williams, <a href="http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1957&dat=19920621&id=4GZGAAAAIBAJ&sjid=3OgMAAAAIBAJ&pg=4546,5429384" target="_hplink">his wife of fourteen years</a>. On March 15, 1964, just <a href="http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=wwIqAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ZicEAAAAIBAJ&pg=7447,4620597&dq=elizabeth+taylor+marries+richard+burton&hl=en" target="_hplink">nine days after her divorce from Fisher was finalized</a>, Taylor made Burton her fifth husband. The couple divorced in 1974, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/23/elizabeth-taylor-divorce_n_839611.html" target="_hplink">remarried in 1975</a> and finally divorced for good the following year.
