Kristen Jaymes Stewart (born April 9, 1990) is an American actress, best known for playing Bella Swan in the 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 Jodie Foster's daughter in Panic Room. 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 Shrinking Violet, 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 Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman. 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 Clouds of Sils Maria.

Filmography:


This actress provides examples of:

  • Character Tics: She has a habit of biting her lower lip, which she shares with Bella Swan.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: She has been known to drop these on set when she messes up a take. She also curses like a sailor in interviews.
  • Dull Surprise: A common complaint against her acting.
    • Amusingly, her role in "Equals" is pretty much built around this.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Fond of going barefoot on and off camera.
  • Fan Disservice: 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 she's too lazy to.
  • Shrinking Violet: As noted above, she has a tendency to come across as this, especially in interviews.
  • The Stoic: Isn't generally known for her emotive acting. That said, it's worked well for her in some roles, such as the one she played in Speak.
