While the ghosts of the cheating scandal are still haunting Kristen Stewart, co-star Jodie Foster has assured the her that "the public horrors of today eventually blow away".

The pair became close after starring together in 2002 thriller Panic Room, where Foster played the onscreen mother of Stewart.

The Silence Of The Lambs icon has penned a blog for The Daily Beast expressing her concern for the Twilight actress, and has told her that the drama will soon be a thing of the past, the Daily Mail reported.

“My mother had a saying that she doled out after every small injustice, every heartbreak, every moment of abject suffering. This Too Shall Pass, she wrote.

“God, I hated that phrase. It always seemed so banal and out of touch, like she was telling me my pain was irrelevant. Now it just seems quaint, but oddly true… Eventually this all passes.

“The public horrors of today eventually blow away. And yes, you are changed by the awful wake of reckoning they leave behind. You trust less. You calculate your steps. You survive.

“Hopefully in the process you don’t lose your ability to throw your arms in the air again and spin in wild abandon. That is the ultimate F.U. and - finally - the most beautiful survival tool of all.

“Don’t let them take that away from you,” Jodie added.
