Nearly 3 years ago now, Kristen Stewart walked down the aisle in a white wedding dress and had Bella's ultimate fantasy honeymoon in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, alongside her hubba-hubba co-star Robert Pattinson. The film went on to become one of the highest grossing movies of all time...
And while KStew's now signed up for the second Snow White And The Huntsman movie, the actress revealed in a recent interview that a blockbuster franchise is not where she "thrives". Speaking with Marie Claire, the Twilight star revealed:
It's not where I thrive... I really like being thrown into the unknown and then finding my way. I don't want to show someone something. I want people to watch me find something.
As far as I'm concerned, Snow White is a better role than Bella. The Rupert Sanders-directed movie is pretty much a Hollywood anomaly in that it's led by two strong female protagonists. Nevertheless, be grateful for Twilight, KStew! It's put you on the path to a long, lucrative career and paid your electricity bills. Nothing wrong with that!
Reflecting on the role of Bella Swan, which shot her to instant Hollywood stardom and was the reason behind her four year relationship with Robert Pattinson, the actress also revealed that she never knew Twilight would become so huge. She continued:
I had no idea Twilight was going to be huge. Certain movies I've done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it's fun not having so much control. It's kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle - it's fun, but it's scary as f**k. If it's not scary, it's usually - you kind of have to step back and go, 'You're probably making this decision because it's right on paper.' But unless you get that irking fear, it's not right.
Kristen Stewart is one step closer to breaking out of her own Twilight-shaped prison as her new movie, Camp X-Ray, has been picked up by IFC Films. The movie tells the story of Amy Cole (Stewart) who gets a job with the army and is hoping to hightail it out of her claustrophobic small town to Iraq. Instead she is send to Guantanamo Bay. While most Muslim men in her charge seem to despise her, Cole forms an unlikely bond with Ali (Peyman Moaadi), who has been imprisoned at Gitmo for eight years.
Does Camp X-Ray sound like sort of flick you're interested in watching Stewart in? Or would you rather see her in something more blockbustery, like the The Huntsman? Drop me a line below and let me know your thoughts.
