Kristen Stewart Bulimic

In order to make Bella appear like she was 30 pounds thinner and dying, visual effects supervisors observed runway models and shaped Kristen Stewart’s face to look like she had an eating disorder

Kristen Stewart has talked before about dropping weight to look toned and sexy in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1, but she did get some extra help looking emaciated in her dying scenes. In fact, the visual effects supervisors changed her face shape to make her seem like she had an eating disorder.

“In movie one, Bella was going to lose weight and look very bulimic,” John Bruno said in a recent interview with Flickering Myth.

In order to do that, Kristen, 21, actually wore appliances that exaggerated her cheek bones, chin and collarbones. The rest was done in post-production.

“Altering Kristen Stewart’s body was incredible challenging,” Edson Williams said.

He explained, “During our initial development phase of the ‘Bella Effect’ we viewed images of starving young women. The images were horrifying, and we immediately began to search for another source, something much softer. We ended referencing thin fashion and runway models with very defined jaws and cheekbones.”

The end result made Bella appear pale, thin and dying…hardly a runway model, but we understand what he meant. We’re just glad Kristen didn’t have to drop 30 pounds off her already tiny frame — that would have been unhealthy!
