Kristen Stewart: Bella is Manic-Depressive

Kristen Stewart: Bella is Manic-Depressive

Kristen Stewart and costar Dakota Fanning continue to film on The Runaways on Monday night (July 27) in Los Angeles.

The 19-year-old actress recently dished at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con about her other flick, New Moon.

Kristen shared about her character, Bella, saying, “This movie’s not about discovery or falling in love, which is sort of an intense emotion, but this is like low, and there are high points for it too and she’s a manic-depressive, basically.

She continued, “It was just sort of heavier. There was more to think about. It’s a more mature part strictly because she’s older. She had more to deal with.”

Also pictured below is actor Michael Shannon, who plays The Runaways manager Kim Fowley in the biopic.

  • Milkshakeee

    I read the book LOL.I’m not a fan of the movies.At offence.but I LOVE the books ;)and what is she talking about?!it’s more mature but bellas only a year older.

  • vivs

    First R.Pattz says that Edward is a weirdo and now K.Stew says Bella is a manic-depressive… What a coincidence???

  • cami

    Gosh, i love her even more everyday i read something about her. She’s great and New Moon is gonna be AWESOME

  • thais

    ugh hate kristen stewart.. she is not right for playing bella. besides, she cant act.. lets see in this movie perhaps im wrong

  • Milly

    Kristen is perfect to play Bella!!
    She’s so talented, beautiful and much more!!! :)
    I love her!!!
    Can’t wait to see this movie too!!!

  • michelle

    Gahhh, I can’t wait t To seehe Runaways! The script was pretty good.

  • SARAH22

    love KStew so much!!!! and i love how introspective she gets in interviews. cant wait to see new moon and the runaways

  • Kris

    @Milkshakeee: She means after edward left her, bella had to grow up and learn from that experience.. In that way she was able to mature. i think anyway.@thais: && you can’t base her acting just on twilight.. she can act really well, though she’s got so much growing to do but she’s young. Watch the cake eaters she’ll blow you away.. but agree in twilight she wasn’t that amazing.

  • kamilah

    im excited for new moon and the runaways!! i agree with kristen when she says bella is more mature in new moon. even though shes just a year older a lot does happen to her which makes her grow up. im definitely not the same person i was a year ago.

  • mang keps


    She’s the most amazing, most beautiful girl in hollywood!!!

    suck it up haters!!
    She’s working non stop.. 3 more movies lined up for her after The Runaways..

    Kristen ROCKS! Have you seen her in SPEAK? She was amazing! I bet she rocked the Cake Eaters too.. At a young age, she was able portray very complex characters so well. I agree that Twilight wasn’t that amazing, but the casting was two thumbs up! Catherine H. took off all the amazing moments form the book especially the Meadow scene… uugh, in the movie it wasn’t that fascinating, where it supposed to be the height of the movie because they’re declaring their love for each other at their meadow and considering that is where Twilight all started (Stephanie Meyer’s dream)… but nooo, Catherine chose to do the kissing on Bella’s bed – so generic! I think CH anticipated that everybody who’ll watch the movie had read the books. Even the cast knew that twilight was not that good…
    But I think New Moon will rock! Weitz really sticked to the book, the motorbike scene and the Italy scene were great! It’s just how you would imagined it when you read the book.

  • dee
