Kristen Stewart took a walk down memory lane to her ‘Twilight’ days on ‘Ellen’ on Nov. 11, and revealed the experience was SO uncomfortable — but not for the reason you’re thinking!
Uh-oh! Kristen Stewart, 26, sat down with Ellen, 58, to talk about her upcoming film projects as well as reflect on her time as part of the huge movie franchise, Twilight!
As the conversation began, Ellen noted that Kristen hadn’t visited her set in 5 years since she was filming Twilight. But while the saga definitely catapulted Kristen’s career into a whole new level of fame and fortune, the actress admitted her experience was a little awkward! When asked about what she remembered from that time in her life, Kristen recalled, “really uncomfortable hair extensions.” “I look at those photos, and I feel like I’m looking at a college yearbook. It was just after what my high school experience would have been… I don’t jump right back into those memories, but as soon as you see a picture it’s like ‘oh God,’ and then it’s like yesterday,” she continued.
Kristen also touched on how the social impact of the movie franchise affected her personal life. “It was something that I really invested in and that mattered to so many people,” she added. “Something personal became not the most personal thing, which is awesome because to share that is great. But it’s like at the same time, I was 17 or 18 when it all went down, and that’s kind of the most uncomfortable, terrible, weird [time of your life.]… It was good; it forced me to stand at attention.”
Okay, so those hair extensions were probably super annoying, but we can’t help but reflect on another moment during Kristen’s Twilight days that she so happened to leave out: her relationship with Robert Pattinson, 30! Kristen and Rob were romantically involved for a good portion of filming, and the actress has admitted in the past their romance didn’t feel like “real life” because it became a “story for entertainment value.” And to have your love made into a romance novel for people to watch and pick apart — that definitely sounds uncomfortable to us!
But nowadays, Kristen is keeping things a little more chill. In addition to working on smaller, independent films such as her most recent film Certain Women, the actress is also keeping her relationship with St. Vincent, 34, pretty quiet.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think was the real reason Kristen was uncomfortable?
