Lorena Says: Kristen Stewart Needs Vampire Confidence!

Posted Sun, January 9, 2011 6:00pm EDT

Will K-Stew have difficulty playing the newly confident Bella vampire — or is she more comfortable as human Bella?

We’ve shrieked over Kristen Stewart’s vampire confession. We’ve thought about Kristen as a vampire mom. But now it’s time to ask whether Kristen will find it challenging transforming from the clumsy human Bella to the new, effervescent, graceful vampire she becomes.

I’m a huge Twilight fan. I have serious discussions with my friends about Team Jacob vs. Team Edward, I have a Robert Pattinson Google alert set up, I once worked with a life-size version of Taylor Lautner as Jacob next to my desk. And for the record, I love Kristen. I love the shy looks she shoots Rob, her awkward speeches, and her propensity for tripping on stage.

But these things are what make Kristen perfect for the role as Bella, a character who Stephenie Meyer portrayed as an awkward, unassuming teen. Unfortunately, these Kristen/Bella traits don’t work for the part in which she transforms into a vampire.

Vampire Bella is astonished by her beauty, delights in her graceful way of moving, and is physically the opposite of her human form. She also gains self-esteem throughout the story, coming into her gifts and projecting a confidence dreamed of by human Bella.

Will Kristen, in all of her endearing self-consciousness, be up to the task? I certainly hope so!

I personaly think that her best role yet was when she played in (PANIC ROOM). Since then her characters seem to be one type of character,no offence.She will probibly play this part well.

Kristen is not Bella. Kristen is an actress. Maybe a chararcter could be easyer than anoter for any actress, but she could act any role, has nothing to do with to be yourself! come on! it’s a job! if you are an actress you could become anything and anyone. and she can, her performance are always true.

you’re joking right? I mean, Robert is my favorite of the whole series, but he’s 10 times more uncoordinated than Kristen, he can’t even run! Kristen can totally be graceful- watch her in the yellow hankerchief or what just happened where she plays a dancer in both – she’s quite graceful. And Kristen has so much swagger already, she just isn’t big on red carpet posing and preening. She’s gonna be the coolest vampire of them all!

Dude, have you seen her act in anything? She’s fearless and a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the right part. Welcome to the Riley’s, The Runaways, Cake Eaters – these are just a few of the projects she’s done where she shows nothing but steely resolve. I’m not sure why you are confusing her penchant for being awkward at public promotional events with her actual acting. Apples, oranges.

said the poster who shoved another twinkie in her piehole. You sound like those bitter, chubby nonstens who always rag on her legs and bodies, and yet their twitter pics show them to be fat, plain, and homely. Jealous heffas! lol

Kristen will do a fantastic job with the transformation. I think it will be harder for the other actors to interact with her as a vampire instead of “human” Bella.

This article is a joke. Kristen is an actress. Of course she can pull it off. Just because she’s shy and awkward in real life doesn’t mean she can’t play the part of vampire Bella. You’d be surprised as to how many people in the entertainment business are actually shy people.
