The pair met on set while filming SWATH, which also featured an appearance by Ross. After the affair made headlines, Stewart was not brought back for the sequel.

"They didn't put me in that movie because I went through such a highly publicized scandal, they were scared of touching that," Stewart said, adding, "I wouldn't say I fell in love with the director, it was kind of a weird thing ... but I definitely think that it wasn't that big of a deal, and the work is so much more important."

Stewart clarified that she never slept with Sanders.

"This is the most candid interview," she stated. When asked by Stern why she never publicly explained that the two didn't sleep together she replied, "Well, who's going to believe me?"

NCAA poised to move toward allowing athletes to make money

  NCAA poised to move toward allowing athletes to make money NEW YORK (AP) — The NCAA is poised to take a significant step toward allowing college athletes to earn money off the fame they have gained by playing sports. The Board of Governors will be briefed Tuesday by administrators who have been examining whether it would be feasible to allow athletes to profit from their names, images and likenesses while still preserving NCAA amateurism rules that are the bedrock of its existence. The move comes as the nation's largest governing body for college athletics faces increasing pressure from lawmakers across the country intent on following California's lead by dismantling compensation prohibitions that currently apply to more than 450,

"It wasn't innocent, that was a really hard period of my life," the Charlie's Angels star admitted. "I was really young."

Stewart also explained that she's never really been allowed to "say what happened" with her relationship with Pattinson. "Because I was so self-conscious about seeming like an attention-seeker," she said. "We were together for years, that was my first [love]."

Stewart, who called Pattinson "the best," scoffed when asked about speculation that their relationship was fake. "You really think at this point, after all these years, that's how I live my life?"

"Was there a point you would've gotten married?" Stern asked. "Do you think?"

"I don't know," a laughing Stewart replied. "I wanted to...yeah, no, I've never been in..."

"If he proposed, you would've gotten married," Stern pressed.

"I don't know," Stewart replied. "I'm not a super-duper traditionalist, but at the same time...every relationship I've ever been in, I thought that was it. I've never really been the most casual person."

Stewart is currently seeing Dylan Meyer, 32, and while she didn't mention her girlfriend by name, the actress said she will "absolutely" propose to the screenwriter in the near future.

"I have a couple of plans that I know would be the coolest thing to do," she said. The couple met on a movie set six years ago but only started dating over the summer.

"But the first time that I told her that I loved her, we were like sitting in this random bar… I’ve known her for like six years, but we only started seeing each other like two weeks in, and it was literally like the day that I met her, all bets were off," she gushed.

"I want to make movies and kids with this girl," Stewart shared. "I can’t believe I’m so lucky. I literally drew her in a dream, and now she exists."
