As The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn gets closer to its release, star Kristen Stewart is opening up more about what it was like filming the final Twilight movie and the huge transformation her character undergoes.
For Kristen, taking on the character changes for Bella was a welcome challenge.
“It felt good. It was really weird,” Kristen tells Box Office Magazine. “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.”
So which version is her favorite?
“I sound so lame, but vampire Bella really is my favorite character — she’s very representative of a matriarch,” she revealed. “She’s very intuitive on almost a psychic level and no one ever acknowledges it, which is interesting. ”
“And I think it’s nice to see her finally get what she wants,” she added. “That’s probably the best thing, even if it sounds simple and indulgent, which is why the f***ing 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.”
Kristen is also currently taking on the very challenging role of Snow White in the upcoming film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
“Not to trivialize it at all, but it’s hard to play an action hero who is also the most compassionate person on earth,” Kristen said. “You can’t hate. You epitomize bleeding hearts, so how the f*** do you do an action movie like that?”
“I’m exhausted right now and I was thinking, ‘The fight stuff is coming up, maybe that won’t be so bad.’ And then I realized that they’re probably going to be my most emotional scenes because I’m killing people and I’m Snow White,” she explained. “It’s a really f***ing cool way to approach a movie where so many people die. Not that I’m criticizing violent movies — I love them, generally — but it is nice to do it this way.”
We look forward to seeing how Kristen played both roles!
