Kristen Stewart, who’s seen her public image decimated in the wake of a scandal in which she cheated on her boyfriend and ‘Twilight’ co-star Robert Pattinson, is turning to an unusual source for comfort: Gandhi.

Just over a month ago, photos were published that showed Stewart, 22, canoodling with Rupert Sanders, her very married and much older ‘Snow White and the Hunstman’ director. Stewart issued an angst-filled public apology to Pattinson, but he moved out of their home and Stewart has stayed mainly in hiding ever since.

Now she’s said to be reading Gandhi’s works on enlightenment, philosophy and spirituality to help get her through the emotional turmoil and “forgive herself.”

No word on how that’s going, but hopefully she’ll find a little inner peace before she has to face reporters on the red carpet when the final chapter of the ‘Twilight’ saga opens November 16.
