In a revealing new interview, K-Stew dishes on how the biggest movie role of her life has affected her. She claims that all of the changes she’s experienced since the ‘Twilight’ saga began don’t get to her, but is she just putting on a tough face? Click to find out!
Kristen Stewart probably knew when she signed on to be Bella Swan in the Twilight movies — her life would never be the same. Talking to the Chicago Sun-Times, the actress reveals just how different her life is now.
Kristen Stewart: ‘Bella Didn’t Stick With Me’
Though Kristen says that “Bella didn’t stick with me more than any other character,” she acknowledges that she’s probably in the minority in feeling that way.
“There are people who so genuinely love the Twilight movies and books that they’ve said, ‘Every single time I see you in a movie, you’re still Bella to me.'” Think about it — that’s pretty weird. For the rest of her life, Kristen will only be thought of as a fictional character — a girl who fell in love with a vampire and knew werewolves.
Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson, Or Bella Swan & Edward Cullen?
This unique state of things is what led to Kristen receiving so much hate and venom in the days following her cheating scandal with director Ruper Sanders and split from Robert Pattinson. People reacted as if she sullied a sacred relationship — Bella isn’t supposed to cheat on Edward!
Twilight director Bill Condon commented on the problem back during the scandal’s height: “The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that.”
Kristen Stewart: How She Deals With Being Bella
Amazingly, Kristen still asserts, “It doesn’t bother me.”
But she also admits that Twilight has caused her to have a chip on her shoulder: “I do think people assume that I’m Bella. I have to prove to them that I can do other things and that she was just a character.”
That has to be the best attitude someone in her position can have — she doesn’t let it bring her down, she lets it motivate her. We’re proud of you, K-Stew!
