'''Kristen Jaymes Stewart''' (born April 9, 1990) is an American actress, best known for playing Bella Swan in the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' film series.

Prior to ''Twilight'', Stewart was a little-known actress who appeared mostly in independent films, occasionally getting supporting roles in studio films. At age ten, she had her first major role playing Creator/JodieFoster's daughter in ''Film/PanicRoom''. During this period, she was generally considered to be an up-and-coming talent by those who were aware of her.

However, after her role in ''Twilight'', public opinion of her has deteriorated a bit. Stewart, who comes off as a bit of a ShrinkingViolet, makes it pretty clear that she does not enjoy being famous, doesn't like the series and generally preferred her pre-''Twilight'' life.

She has also played Literature/SnowWhite in ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''. After finishing the ''Twilight'' series, she returned to small independent films. Her acting fortunes appear to be looking up in 2015, as she became the first-ever American actress to win a César (the French version of the Academy Awards), Best Supporting Actress for ''Film/CloudsOfSilsMaria''.

* CharacterTics: She has a habit of biting her lower lip, which she shares with Bella Swan.
* ClusterFBomb: She has been known to drop these on set when she messes up a take. She also curses like a sailor in interviews.
* DullSurprise: A common complaint against her acting.
** Amusingly, her role in [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3289728/ "Equals"]] is pretty much built around this.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Fond of going barefoot on and off camera.
* FanDisservice: Recently revealed this is why she rarely - if ever - smiles when being photographed, on the grounds that she believes she'll somehow be a sellout to her fans for doing so. She also said in another interview that she doesn't smile much because [[BrilliantButLazy she's too lazy to.]]
* SirSwearsALot:
* ShrinkingViolet: As noted above, she has a tendency to come across as this, especially in interviews.
* TheStoic: Isn't generally known for her emotive acting. [[TropesAreTools That said]], it's worked well for her in some roles, such as the one she played in ''Speak''.
