Although Kristen didn’t spend her birthday with Robert Pattinson, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she did get a big surprise from her fans who raised over $20,000 for a cause close to the actress’ heart.
Kristen Stewart isn’t one to get wrapped up in materialistic things, even when it comes to birthday presents. So she had more generous wishes for her 24th birthday on April 9, and when she learned that her fans have raised over $20,000 for Alzheimer’s research, she was “blown away” with their “support” and “generosity,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Kristen Stewart: ‘Blown Away’ By Caring Fans
Kristen may have the most dedicated fans ever! In just a few short weeks, they managed to raise tons of money for Alzheimer’s research, knowing that the cause is dear to K-Stew’s heart.
“Kristen is absolutely blown away by the support and generosity of her fans. So far, that have raised over $20,000 for Alzheimer’s research. This was by far her favorite birthday gift,” a friend of Kristen’s tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
In the upcoming movie Still Alice, Kristen plays the role of Julianne Moore‘s teenage daughter who discovers that her mom is suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s.
“She learned so much about Alzheimer’s working on Still Alice and is overwhelmed that so many of her fans are contributing to the foundation (Cure Alzheimer’s Fund). She wants to do more to help raise awareness, especially with the younger generation,” the friend adds. How cool is it that K-Stew has taken up such a worthy cause, and that her loyal fans have joined her in fighting for it?
Will Kristen & Robert Pattinson Reunite At Coachella?
“She wants Rob to come as well,” an insider told us EXCLUSIVELY. “We are still going to Coachella, it’s our annual thing. If she decides to stay put [in New Orleans], Kristen says she’ll go to the French Quarter Festival which is also this weekend. As long as music is involved, she will be happy.” Getting R-Patz to go to Coachella would be an amazing birthday present, but it sounds like K-Stew is already thrilled with what her fans have given her.
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers, does Kristen have the most devoted fans ever? Do YOU think Kristen should go to Coachella to celebrate her birthday?
