She has already won millions of hearts with her role as the leading lady in Twilight, but Kristen Stewart might be in for a chance at knocking our socks off as Belle in Beauty and the Beast as well!

According to Hollywood Life, The 23-year-old actress is being eyed up by the newly named [Beauty and the Beast](movie:362071) director, Bill Condon for the leading role.

A source close to the director told the website that;

The process and the script for the movie are still in the beginning stages but as it fleshes out, Bill Condon has definitely thought of Kristen Stewart as a possible Belle

But, there are a few minor problems that might stand in Kristen's way. According to the source, time is of the essence. They explained that;

By the time they make the film, it might be 2015 or 2016 and they think she’ll be busy and they might go after somebody younger. Disney’s thoughts are, the big name for the film should be devoted to the Beast so Kristen has a 50/50 chance to be Belle

Hmmmmm a convenient disclaimer there!

Kristen Stewart has proved she can totally own the young adult fantasy genre with both Twilight and [Snow White and the Huntsman](movie:44630) , but Hollywood Life has not exactly proved itself as a reputable source of information in the past.

That being said, I think Kristen would make a totally amazing Belle....

5. She's already well acquainted with beasts!

4. We already know KStew can rock a period dress... Even on a horse!
