7 December 2012

London, Dec. 7 (ANI): Kristen Stewart has ended her year on a high note after being named one of the most inspiring stars of 2012 by a website.

The 'Twilight' star hit the headlines this year, when she split from her boyfriend Robert Pattinson after confessing to a "momentary indiscretion" with married director Rupert Sanders.

The 22-year-old actress earned 7th spot on E!'s end-of-year round-up for handling the controversy with dignity, the Daily Star reported.

Explaining Stewart's position at number seven on the list, editors at EOnline.com wrote, "What do you do when you screw up, and get caught?"

"If you're the Twilight actress, you apologise, put your head down and do your work, even if doing your work means putting you in front of the same people - the press and the public - who spent their summer scrutinising and criticising your every move.

"It may not be the classic feel-good tale, but it's a blueprint nonetheless on how to take your lumps," they wrote.

Other stars who made the list include R and B singer Frank Ocean, who "came out" as gay in July (12), and female punk band Pussy Riot, three members of the group were jailed in August (12) for performing a protest song against Russian President Vladimir Putin in a Moscow church.

1. The heroes of Aurora, Colorado

2. Lana Wachowski

3. Robin Roberts

4. Frank Ocean

5. Abraham Lincoln

6. Lizzie Velasquez and Jennifer Livingston
