In a brand new interview, Kristen Stewart adamantly stands up for ‘The Twilight Saga’ and her character Bella Swan. She’s furious her character doesn’t get respect!
Kristen Stewart may act indifferent and disinterested during interviews and red carpets, but when it comes to The Twilight Saga and her character, Bella Swan, she’s furious they don’t get the respect they deserve.
“I sound so lame, but vampire Bella really is my favorite character—she’s very representative of a matriarch. She’s very intuitive on almost a psychic level and no one ever acknowledges it, which is interesting,” Kristen, 21, told Boxoffice Magazine in a brand new interview.
“Maybe that says something about Stephenie that she doesn’t get respect for all of her f–king amazing qualities. And that’s also one of the things that makes her appealing to me, so that’s not a strike at it—that’s something that I like about it.”
Critics have complained that Twilight and Bella, in particular, are too simple and immature to be taken seriously. However, Kristen loves how Bella lives happily ever after.
“And I think it’s nice to see her finally get what she wants. That’s probably the best thing, even if it sounds simple and indulgent, which is why the f–king thing is criticized all the time,” she explained. “It’s nice to see people be happy. And she really—if I’ve played it right—is born to be where she is.”
It’s refreshing to hear Kristen defend her film so passionately — and we cannot wait to see the many sides of Bella when Breaking Dawn hits theaters Nov. 18.
