Kristen Stewart Defends Stephenie Meyer

Kristen Stewart talks respect for Stephenie Meyer in an interview with Box Office magazine.(FYI bleeped language on the interview)

You know this character so well, what’s it like to take her through this huge change when she becomes a vampire herself?

It felt good. It was really weird. It was such a long process of the two movies being shot at the same time as if they’re one. You shoot, obviously, out of order and you keep going back and forth between pregnant, human and dead vampire Bella. There’s so many different versions of Bella in this, it’s insane. It was a strange experience walking on set the first time I played a scene as a vampire because I’d watched everyone around me doing it all the time. I sound so lame, but vampire Bella really is my favorite character—she’s very representative of a matriarch. She’s very intuitive on almost a psychic level and no one ever acknowledges it, which is interesting. Maybe that says something about Stephenie that she doesn’t get respect for all of her f–king amazing qualities. And that’s also one of the things that makes her appealing to me, so that’s not a strike at it—that’s something that I like about it. And I think it’s nice to see her finally get what she wants. That’s probably the best thing, even if it sounds simple and indulgent, which is why the f–king thing is criticized all the time. It’s nice to see people be happy. And she really—if I’ve played it right—is born to be where she is.

  1. Gawd, as if I couldn’t love Kristen Stewart any more, she goes and says this which just makes me fall for her even more! Lol. This woman understands Bella and the saga so well. I don’t care what flack people have to say about her, she was the perfect Bella and did justice by the character and she made sure of that. Kristen is amazing.

    • i agree. Kristen is Bella’s number one fan. Kristen’s performance as Bella is amazing. to me she is the perfect Bella. i disagree when people say that Kristen has no facial expressions. she is very expressive.

  2. She has a bit of a potty mouth doesn’t she?

  3. The Twi-haters ignore what an incredibly brave and willful person Bella is even when she’s a physically weak, clumsy human. Which is reflected in how as a vampire she’s the most powerful – as well as the most in control of her impulses – of all.

    Kristen Stewart has been an excellent Bella, just like she was great in The Runaways and Adventureland. (And has anyone else seen Skateland? Ashley Greene gave a terrific performance.) Catherine Hardwicke assembled the perfect cast.

    I was reading the Twilight graphic novel volume 2 (great!) today and a lot of moments reminded me what an ingenious storyteller Stephenie Meyer is.

    • YetToHaveAName says:

      She is incredibly brave and willful? All I see is this weird mind-shield thing she has. Somehow, that gives her ‘control’. I don’t see her as a physically weak, clumsy human. I see her as a lustful girl, who seems to always get what she wants. I could go on, but I will save that for a later day.

      Kristen Stewart a great actor? I’m not going to agree with that. I hate the character Bella. Kristen plays Bella fine but the character Bella is boring and dull, so therefore I don’t consider it to be great acting to play Bella. I think she is okay in her other movies, I’ll give her that.

      Well, if consider a story about an 108 year old vampire and a teenage girl fall in love in a week, sure she is a great storyteller.

    I just adore Kristen. She works so hard at what she does, takes it so seriously, and it so shows in everything she does and says. Thank you for everything, Kristen!

  5. Omg …

  6. Kristen is number one in my book. She strongly defends her character and what Stephenie was trying to convey in the series,about Bella’s choices. Her choices are her own and you can either agree or disagree with them. I agree with what everyone else has said,that while Bella may be weak,physically,it enhances her strength when she becomes a vampire. It’s the abilities she already possessed that she didn’t know she had. That was one of my favorite parts of Breaking Dawn,was that Bella was willing to protect her family and friends from harm. Great interview with Kristen. Can’t wait to see her as beautiful and brave Bella Swan in BD part 1.

  8. AMEN Kristen!! You are an amazing person and standing up for what you believe in!! You’re incredible actress!!

  9. All I want is for this grate author to continue to write about LEAH ! REALLY BAD!
