Movie Profile: KRISTEN STEWART SINKS HER TEETH INTO 'TWILIGHT'

Or what it's like to be in a vampire movie when you're not a vampire

By CARLOS DELGADO, Contributing Writer
Published 10/31/2008

In case you haven’t heard, TWILIGHT is set to be released Nov. 21, 2008, oh but the buzz has been around for a while already. Tons of fansites have been created. The movie trailer was one of the most viewed in iFmagazine’s history. Fans are waiting in eager anticipation for the big screen rendition of Stephenie Meyer’s vampire saga. But at the swirling center of all the media madness and hype is little Kristen Stewart, the young actress chosen to portray Bella Swan. Remember her alongside Jodi Foster in PANIC ROOM? Well she’s grown up now and ready to tackle the juicy role of trying to avoid being vampire bait. She’s also ready to tackle some serious teen issues like divorced parents, isolation, and love.

TWILIGHT tells the story of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), two teens that fall in love. Bella is the new girl in town and attracts lots of attention from all the boys. As fate would have it, she meets and falls in love with Edward. But like star-crossed lovers of yore, they have plenty of obstacles to overcome, the most obvious being that Edward is a vampire. He must resist his temptation to kill Bella while defending her from other vampires who seemingly have no qualms about making her their dinner.

Leave no doubt, TWILIGHT is a love story. Stephenie Meyer has written several books chronicling the struggles that Bella and Edward have been through as they fight for their love. It is a familiar story, forbidden love, but in this particular case, it’s not one that Stewart was familiar with.

“No, I don’t know what rock I was living under,” admits Stewart. “I hadn’t heard about it. I think it reaches―I don’t know, I think it’s sort of a random―some people are saying, ‘How could you not have known about it? I mean, it’s like shoved in my face every day,’ and then other people are like, ‘Twilight?’

Stewart’s lack of familiarity with the story, however, did not dissuade her from taking the part of Bella. It seems the script by itself was enough to convince Stewart to jump on board.

“I read the script before I got the part and agreed to do it, but I soon delved into the book,” says Stewart. “But the script was solid and there and something worth doing.”

That’s a good sign, I would imagine, because as we all know, oftentimes the movie adaptation of a popular novel can go terribly, terribly wrong. To feel the script was strong enough to take the role without even reading the novels―which, by the way, has a rabid fan base―says plenty about Stewart’s moxie and the quality of the TWILIGHT screenplay.

But like every good movie, characters are what pave the way. They’re what get us, the viewers, to relate and emphasize with the characters onscreen. So what does Stewart think about Bella?

“I think the cool thing about her is that she is this seemingly, like she’s supposed to be the victim in the story, she’s supposed to be the girl, the damsel in distress sort of a deal, and she’s not,” explains Sewart. “The power balance is so different from that. She’s very sure-footed and, in an odd way, caught up in something that is crazy and intimidating and, frankly, bigger than her, yet she is there for a reason and willing to fight for that.”

An interesting characterization, for sure. It’s not often that the mortal character in vampire movies is the strong character. Like Stewart states, they are often seen as victims in need of rescuing. Yet Stewart approaches Bella from a unique direction, from a position of power almost, despite being fragile, at least in the mortal sense.


“I feel like she’s a strong character―I don’t know, maybe that’s just me,” says Stewart. “But hopefully both come across in the movie―I can’t tell you that, because I’d be a very biased opinion. But she’s not the typical―she doesn’t think necessarily, if you were to ask Bella, ‘So do you feel like you’re a strong character?’ ‘No.’ But she is. That’s the point. She’s like any girl, not sure of herself, but her actions say otherwise.”

Surprisingly, Stewart has a pretty strong opinion about her character and who she is, but unlike many of the other characters of the movie, she’s not exactly sure who Bella was. The other vampires are hundreds of years old with countless stories stored in their undead heads. Bella, in contrast, is just a seventeen-year-old girl who hasn’t really lived yet. But maybe that’s not really important.

“My character was the one person without a back story, really,” begins Stewart. “I mean, she sort of―it’s very much―we’re trying to figure out how long she’s actually been away from her dad. That was sort of a consideration, like how long she’s―like, the homecoming, how long it’s been since she’s been there. But she was very―the story for Bella starts at the beginning. I mean, she’s sort of just cruising along life, and then the story really starts at the beginning of our story. All the rest of the characters have immense back stories that absolutely affect the way they act, but mine didn’t.”

So no real back-story, got it. Stewart believes that who Bella is once her romance with Edward begins is what this story is really about anyway. Such a lack of character history, however, leaves plenty of room for interpretation. It allows Stewart to create a character that she likes, the details of which she is not shy sharing. When asked what about Bella she enjoys the most, Stewart quickly responds:

“That she doesn’t fit into the role that everyone thinks that you would―you know? She’s very simple, you know? It’s like, she’s just a girl who’s going to high school in a new town, and finding that sort of difficult to deal with. And we’ve always sort of joked around that Bella would be like the ultimate queen vampire because she’s so, like, unassumingly strong. You know, everybody’s sort of interested in her, and she can’t tell why. And there’s sort of an innate power that she has, just like the vampire’s powers are sort of just physiological. It’s nothing about her personally; it’s just sort of like she has this power over these sort of mystical creatures.”

I suppose we’ll have to wait until TWILIGHT is released to see if Stewart is right about Bella. Until then, we’ll have to be satisfied with movie trailers and fan blogs. Oh, yeah, and if you have time, you could even read the books.

'Twilight' Tuesday: Stars Answer More Of Fans' Burning Questions ... Like What It's Like To Kiss Robert Pattinson




By Larry Carroll (MTV.com)

Ever dream of bumping into Kellan Lutz at Costco while he's buying a bulk bag of Runts? Grabbing a Can't Hardly Wait DVD at the store, only to find Peter Facinelli reaching for the same one? What about cornering Robert Pattinson in an elevator, just as it gets stuck between floors?

Luckily for you, MTV News is once again saving you the messiness of all that uneasy eye contact, "OME!" shrieks and possible restraining orders. The movie comes out next month (Wow! I can't believe I just wrote that!), and some of our most popular Twilight Tuesdays have been the first and second times we had the stars answer fan questions.

So, without further ado, we hereby present the third entry in our Twilight Stars Answer Fans' Burning Questions series. Feel free to keep submitting your wildest queries, and look below for all you've ever wanted to know about Anna Kendrick's lung capacity, Lutz's love of velour, and RPattz's promise to suck on your neck.

"What's it like kissing the most gorgeous man alive, Robert Pattinson?" - Ceejay

Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan): His teeth are pretty sharp. It's great. I like it. It's cool.

People are also debating whether Edward and Bella will French kiss.

Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen): It's more of a Chilean kiss.

Stewart: What's that?

Pattinson: That just wasn't funny. Whenever we kiss, I just try to kill her all the time.

Stewart: And I love that. She's a total sadomasochist, if you think about it.

Pattinson: And I'm just gay.

Stewart: Or impotent.

"Kellan Lutz likes Runts. Do you have a favorite candy?" - Liz

Cam Gigandet (James): It changes a lot, because I do something I shouldn't do: I will lock in on a candy, and I will eat it until I can never have it again. I don't know why. I do love cookie dough more than anything in the world, but that's not really a candy. I would probably say, right now, it's Heath bars. No, Skor. Skor bars! That's it for sure.

Well, Mike Welch was sent thousands of socks after he made a comment about how he needed them. Are you ready for thousands of Skor bars to come your way?

Gigandet: Hmmm ... I love Lamborghinis. [Laughs.] I love them, I really do.

"If you had a choice to play any character (gender aside), who would it be?" - Bob

Kellan Lutz (Emmett Cullen): I'd play Rosalie. She's just so feisty. And you know, to think about the gender thing, playing a female would be quite fun. It would be a stretch for an actor who is male, so yeah, I would enjoy playing your role.

Nikki Reed (Rosalie Hale): Well, thanks, babe.

Lutz: And she has a hot outfit. I'm wearing velour, by the way, so I doubt anyone said Emmett.

Reed: My monkey man! I think I would play Alice. There's something about Alice that's just [intriguing]. I'm sure a lot of other people feel this too. Like her psychic abilities ... and that she was in a mental hospital. They checked her into a mental hospital before she became a vampire because she could see the future, and so they thought she was crazy.

"Do you have the lung capacity to speak as fast, for as long, as Jessica? Because I don't." - Evangeline Annie Van Holzen

Anna Kendrick (Jessica Stanley): It was a cake walk after Rocket Science! I remember Stephenie Meyer [being on set] the day that I was doing that big speech about the Cullens. It was just a lot of dialogue. ... She is quite a chatterbox, but it wasn't too bad, because it all seemed to make sense and come from this really sweet, desperate place.

"Are you aware that you're being stalked?" - Serena

Peter Facinelli (Carlisle Cullen): Am I? Yes, and I wish you would take the tent down from the front of my house - now. That's kind of rude! No, I had no idea.

"If there were such a thing as vampires, would you want to be turned? - Kristin

Christian Serratos (Angela Weber): I don't know. I probably would, just out of pure curiosity.

Would you want to be frozen now or later on in life?

Serratos: There's a lot of thought that's going to go into me becoming a vampire. I'd probably wait - no, why not? If I'm going to do something crazy, I'm going to do it now. I'd become a vampire right now.

"If you could describe yourself in three words, what would they be?" - Em

Ashley Greene (Alice Cullen): I would like to think that I'm kind of chipper, upbeat and fun.

Jackson Rathbone (Jasper Hale): Um ... I'm a loner who loves company.

Greene: [Laughs.] He's a weirdo, basically.

Michael, how does working on a production like Twilight compare to the work you've done in the past? - Ann

Michael Welch (Mike Newton): Well, I started out my career in television, just doing different guest spots. [I] started out with sitcoms. Actually, my first role that I got was as Young Niles on Frasier, because when I was younger, I was always doing impressions. That's how I broke into acting to begin with. That allowed me to break into the sitcom world, and then from there I made the transition into dramas and then got lucky enough to be on a show called Joan of Arcadia, which was on for two years. Since then, I've been doing independent movies that probably will never come out, most of them. And then all of the sudden, this Twilight just came out of nowhere! It's the biggest thing I've ever been a part of, man. It's so exciting.

"Robert, will you suck my blood out?" - Alley

Pattinson: Yes. Right now? Do they give their addresses and stuff?

They give their names, and I am sure if you click on MTV.com, you could e-mail any of them.

Pattinson: "Will you suck my blood out?" Is that, like, a worried question? Or is it kind of a desiring question? I won't if you don't want me to.
