She was completely blind sided when her ex-husband revealed his affair with Kristen Stewart in 2012, and now Liberty Ross is opening up about the ordeal in the December 2013 issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

During her interview, the 35-year-old model-turned-actress shared details about discovering Rupert Sanders' cheating scandal and the end of her marriage.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Ross' Q&A session below. For more, be sure to visit Vanity Fair!

On finding out about the affair:
"It was horrible. It was really the worst. I have no words to describe what we went through. But I think, for me, something always has to completely die for there to be a rebirth. And, for me, I feel like I'm going through a rebirth."

On staying at a friend's home during the situation:
"I was able to be there completely secluded. I just visualized [being] this sort of Masai warrior. I was just going to stand very still and very strong, and must let it all roll past me. I tried to keep as far away from it as I could and to understand that this is my family and it's the most precious thing to me."

On moving on from her failed marriage:
"It's been very strange for me because my parents have been together for 50 years, so divorce is something I never, ever thought I would do. I'm not a quitter. I've done everything I could to be the perfect wife and mother and really support my husband. But I didn't have any more to give, you know? We were together for 16 years, and that in itself is really beautiful. And we've created two exceptional lives together."
