How does Kristen Stewart convince herself that her character Bella could love a blood sucking vampire? (Even one as sexy as Robert Pattinson?) She thinks of him as having a relatable, human struggle.
“You give them issues that a normal person might have and play off that,” the actress told The New York Times. In order for Bella to fall in love with the blood-addicted, Edward, she thought of him “not as a Vampire but rather a heroin addict.”
Her director says, “It’s not easy to make falling in love with a vampire look real.” Seriously, though, it’s R-Patz we’re talking about!
