Kristen Stewart: Bella Is So Confident

Kristen Stewart: Bella Is So Confident

Kristen Stewart recently caught up with Parade magazine and dished on costar Robert Pattinson, how she handles interviews now and how she embraced Bella Swan. Check out what the 19-year-old actress had to say:

On Bella Swan: “She is confident but not arrogant. Bella is like, ‘I’m allowed to make mistakes and I’m going to do things and take chances and not be ashamed of it.’ You see this girl really build herself back up, and by the time she makes this sort of rash decision to spend eternity with a vampire, you believe her. She’s lived life. She’s grown up.”

On the rumors surrounding her and Rob: “I get why fans want to know more about the cast as real people and they want us to be together and all of that. I just have to sort of not think about that. People have a hard time separating us from our characters. There’s an incredibly large group that spends most of their time absorbed in the lives of people who’ve gotten some notoriety. It’s strange to me. I can’t have anything to do with it or else I’d step in and mess it up for myself, I just let it fall by the wayside. It doesn’t really affect me.”

On the toughest scene to film: “It’s when Edward tells Bella it’s all over and they’re never going to see each other again. There’s nothing like it in reality. It’s not even like a normal breakup scene because I know what it’s like to get broken up with. I don’t know what it’s like to get broken up with by a vampire. It’s like suddenly whatever has addicted an addict is taken away from them and they go through total withdrawal. That’s what Bella was going through. To portray that was really intimidating.”

    Kristen, you do not know what you are talking about when it comes to Bella’s personality.
    You may be a nice person, and smart in other areas. But when it comes to this subject, you really have no clue. I’m sorry.

    Confident? Who, Bella? Ha! Maybe the movie Bella is (I wouldn’t know, since I didn’t feel like watching it).

    I just see this as an attempt to liven up one of the worst examples of female strength in all of fiction, seeing as “confident” is the LAST word most objective readers would use to describe Bella.

    Ah well, still love you Kristin, even if I can’t stand Bella.

    Brittany -

    What an idiotic comment you made.

  • jane

    i never saw bella as confident. in the book she is so insecure with herself. i never liked the character of bella

  • magick_girl786

    Bella is so not confident.

    The Bella that they made for the movie might be but the book Bella is not confident at all. She’s timid and weak.

    And what Kristen says about her not being afraid of making mistakes is completely and utterly wrong. If she was truly not afraid of making mistakes, she wouldn’t have been so afraid to tell Edward that she wanted to hang out with Jacob instead of making some elaborate scheme to meet him because she was too scared to tell Edward.

    Kristen obviously has never read the books or doesn’t relate to the character because Bella is insecure and needy. The movie Bella (aka the Bella that Kristen portrayed) is not the same as the Bella in the books and people need to realize this.
