Twilight’s Kristen Stewart on Teen Vogue Cover

Teen Corner

Twilight’s Kristen Stewart is on the December/January cover of TEEN VOGUE.

I honestly haven’t read the Twilight books but, whatever, neither has Kristen:

Twilight is the hotly anticipated adaptation of author Stephanie Meyer’s smash-hit debut novel – all four titles in the now-complete series continue to be best sellers – but before Kristen got the script she had never even heard of the books.  ” I guess I was just living under rocks and mountains,” she says cheerfully.  “And though we were warned, I figured it would be a pretty exclusive fan base.  I thought we were making a cult movie; I had no idea it was going to be this, like, phenomenon.”

Despite having Kristen’s merits debated on Internet message boards before she had even shot a frame of film, she is almost improbably perfect to play the part of Bella Swan, a recently relocated high school junior who falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson.  “Bella’s a very relatable girl,” says Kristen.  “She inhabits qualities that most girls have, even if it’s not on the surface.”  Physically, Kristen works:  she is capable of being both slightly plain (as Bella feels) and impossibly beautiful (as Edward sees her).  “What I love about the story and what puts it on a different level is that it’s ‘chemical’…there’s nobody else for either of them.  Period.”  The romance, which Kristen describes as “unworldly but not fake,” was a big draw. She did, on occasion, draw from her own romantic life – she’s been with boyfriend Michael Angarano “forever” as she puts it.

Kristen lived in an apartment on her own for the first time while shooting Twilight. “You are an insane person after you wrap a movie!”, she says. “Especially with Twilight.  You spend three and a half months living the story. We all had one main goal, we were all equally invested and focused – it was just a very intertwined experience.”

What about Kristen’s take on fashion? “If I’m just chilling out, then people can see me any which way, but it’s different when you’re putting yourself together to do something professionally,” she says. “You’re under a lot of scrutiny,” she admits.  “It’s a bizarre thing, to me, to consider that what I wear or what I do with my hair, can affect my career.” But Kristen respects the process and takes it in stride. “I’m not the type of person who has a million things in my closet to put together, so I’ve begun to work with a stylist and we’ve started to figure out what I like.  Simple, classically pretty things; I love Chanel.”

You can catch Kristen as Bella Swan in Twilight, on November 21, 2008.  You can also see Kristen in the upcoming coming-of-age comedy Adventureland with Ryan Reynolds in 2009. The Dec/Jan 2008 issue of TEEN VOGUE is on sale nationwide November 18, 2008

  • wow. she usually strikes me as very pretty but i just don’t find her attractive at all here.

  • Wow, she looks amazingly fragile, yet at the same time naturally stunning. She was amazing in Twilight, I’ve been a fan of the books since th ebeginning and I was worried about the hype and what the movie would be like, but Kristen played Bella perfectly, Robert was a bit stiff as Edward, I imagined him to have a better sense of humour but hey, that’s how my mind saw it. Thanks for the exclusive
    Chanel is great:) xxxx

  • Are you Bella, Rosalie, or Alice?

    Watching the movie and reading the books you probably related most to one of the Twilight Series Characters. Give your input and vote on which Twilight character is most like you. Check back often to see the results of this online poll.

    * Isabella (Bella) Swan:Is a serious girl with a very giving and self sacrificing nature. Being passionate, loyal, and intense make Bella a perfect choice for a serious relationship. While Bella is clumsy and uncoordinated, she knows exactly what she wants and goes for it.

    * Rosalie: Rosalie is intensely beautiful and she knows it. She uses her beauty to get the upper hand and take control of any situation. She will use her strength and intelligence to protect the ones she loves.

    * Alice: Alice may look sweet and innocent on the outside but watch out! She’s fiercely self assured and never looses her cool. Though Rosalie would never admit it, Alice can top her in any situation. The opposite of Rosalie, Alice uses her inner beauty to protect her loved ones.
