“Suddenly there were thousands of people who wanted to see us. The bosses of Summit were there rubbing their hands. I could see the dollar sign in their eyes. I thought ‘what the hell is this?’ And in fact that’s when the craziness, the tight schedules, the photoshoots and the interviews started.” she tells. I ask her when she felt the turning point happened. “When I couldn’t take a stroll without having to watch my back.” she says with an expression of horror. And Kristen was already familiar with this world. She was born in the San Ferdinando Valley, LA; her parents, “eccentric, funny and kind of hippy” as she describes them, worked in the business. Her childhood was happy and stable – “I come from a close-knit, warm and loyal family” – which is something rare for young stars.
“BELLA HAS GIVEN ME EVERYTHING”
I’ll be clear, Kristen has never turned into someone she is not. Nor does she feel like she has to free herself from Bella’s characters in order not to be type-cast. “I’d go crazy if I did it. Thanks to Bella I don’t have to fight for every role I want to play.”
