It was the role that made her a household name – and now Kristen Stewart has revealed how she really feels about her role as Bella Swan in the ‘Twilight’ franchise.
In a recent chat with ‘Interview’ magazine Kristen revealed her real feelings about the experience, saying, “I mean, it was a long process, so it’s hard to generalize about it as a whole,” she explained.
“It wasn’t entirely cohesive. We ebbed and flowed. I will definitely acknowledge that. But the intention is so f**king pure in a weird way. Anybody who wants to talk s**t about Twilight, I completely get it, but there’s something there that I’m endlessly, and to this day, f**king proud of. My memory of it felt — still feels — really good.”
When interviewer Patti Stewart commented, “You have a gift for showing restraint. Even Bella Swan, she has a practical streak even though she does something completely, you know…” “Retarded,” Stewart was quick to add.
Kristen also moaned about how people always comment that her acting in Twilight wasn’t serious, saying, “Say I do a big franchise movie about a vampire that falls in love with a normal girl. It’s like, ‘Now do you want to show them that you can be a real, serious actor?’ It’s like, ‘Was I not being a real, serious actor?'”
“Like, comparing Twilight to things and trying to figure out why I’ve made certain decisions that I’ve made, and I always say every single moment that has led me to this moment has made me who I am."
"Every movie that I’ve done, they don’t stand independently from one another because a little bit of me is in every single one of those, and it’s part of my own personal growth," she continued.
“They have everything to do with each other. They are who I am.”
