Us Weekly, which advertised that it had caught the two in a "steamy rendezvous" on July 17 in Los Angeles, has now posted the photos on its website.

According to the magazine, the 22-year-old Stewart and  Sanders, a 41-year-old married father of two, were driving around L.A. looking for discreet places to embrace. A witness told the magazine they were "kissing like crazy."

Before the magazine hit newsstands, Stewart issued a statement last week to People apologizing for her "momentary indiscretion" and saying that her choice "jeopardized" her valued relationship with her boyfriend and "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson.

Saunders issued a statement to the magazine as well stating, "I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together."
