Trivia / Kristen Stewart

  • Cloudcuckoolander: She seems to view herself as one.
    "Really, I'm incredibly disjointed and not candid. Just in general, my thoughts tend to come out in little spurts that don't necessarily connect. If you hang around long enough, you can find the linear path."
  • The Danza: In Cold Creek Manor, she played a character called Kristen Tilson.
  • Doing It for the Art: She agreed to a salary of less than $200,000 for her role as Marylou in the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road after its budget was drastically cut, purely out of love for the novel.
  • Dyeing for Your Art: For her role as a runaway teenage stripper in Welcome to the Rileys, she learned how to pole dance, deprived herself of sleep, chain-smoked, and ate mostly junk food. As a result her body and legs were covered with bruises, her skin was blemished, and she constantly looked tired.
  • Fake Brit: As seen in her Snow White and the Huntsman, she's actually pretty good at it, as this clip from Conan showcases.
  • Funny Character, Boring Actor: Inverted. She's quite the jokester in real life, whereas her most famous character tends to be dull.
  • I Am Not Spock: As far as her fans, her haters, and the media (especially the tabloids) are concerned, she and Bella Swan are the same person.
  • Playing Against Type:
    • Best known for playing the virginal, moody and self-conscious Bella, Stewart plays the sensual, free-spirited Marylou in the film adaptation of On the Road.
    • She is also a lot livelier as the teenage sister in Zathura than viewers who only know her as Bella would expect. When she isn't frozen solid, that is.
  • She Really Can Act: Zig-Zagged. She was pegged as a rising talent in movies like Panic Room and Zathura, but her casting in the Twilight series made many believe she lacked expressiveness or range. Then she became the first American actress (and only the second American actor) ever to win a César Award (basically, the French Oscars), for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria; as far as the critics concerned, all her Twilight sins were forgotten, or at any rate blamed on bad writing. The fandom is taking a little longer to catch up.
