Don’t you agree that K-Stew’s future looks incredibly bright?

News flash: Kristen Stewart has worked on other projects besides the Twilight Saga. Though it seems like we only see the 19-year-old fighting vampires and cozying up to Robert Pattinson, her The Yellow Handkerchief co-star Maria Bello thinks Twilight is all fluff compared to what she’s capable of in the long run.

“I think that the Twilight thing is just a bunch of bells and whistles, because I think she will have an amazing career.” Maria told at a special screening of their new film Feb. 19 in Los Angeles, adding, “I was so impressed with her depth and integrity, and I was so thrilled to do this film with her.”

Maria, 42, has been following Kristen’s career from the very beginning; they actually shot The Yellow Handkerchief in 2007, which was way before the young starlet even auditioned for the role of mopey Forks teen Bella Swan. In fact, until Kristen hit it big, this film was collecting dust on a shelf and wouldn’t have made it to theaters if not for Twilight’s “bells and whistles!”
