Kristen Stewart Says ‘Dawn’ Plot ‘Rooted In a Reality I See Myself In’
We wanted to make sure to get a question to Kristen Stewart about what it was like emotionally this time around. Bella gets married, has an intense honeymoon, gets pregnant, and decides to keep the child when it could ultimately kill her. So how did this heavy material affect Stewart personally? Is it something she could relate to? We’ll let her tell you herself:
“I can’t draw a line between myself and stuff that I do. It’s funny, I don’t want to make it sound like it’s not just about this, but really with everything I do it’s hard to take myself out of it. I’ve been building up to these moments for four years- I was 17 when I started doing this [franchise]. This one really is loaded with those cathartic, impacting, huge life moments.”
“We just went for it, a lot of it is very close to the book and it’s a sincere telling of the story, but at the same time we added bits,” Kristen continued on to said. “There are surprises that surprised me too in the more iconic bits, like the wedding, and at the honeymoon.”
Oscar winning director Bill Condon quickly chimed in:
“I feel like that’s such a self-conscience answer,” Kristen said about her long response to our question.
“But it’s true,” defended Condon.
Trust us Twi fans, it is! You can tell by the way Kristen spoke about how passionate she is about Bella, and that she stands behind her characters choices.
