‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2′: Kristen Stewart on Bella as a Feminist Role Model



Let’s be real, here — love her or hate her, Kristen Stewart has endured her fair share of vitriol from feminists, fan-girls, and fidelity-loving press alike since she first took to the screen as the lovestruck Bella Swan in 2008. So when Hollywood.com sat down with her to discuss Breaking Dawn – Part 2, we were determined to give Stewart a chance to fight back: How does she see Bella as a positive female role model?

To say we were impressed with the actress’ intelligence and candor is an understatement. She provided thought-provoking answers to all of our questions, and, well, made us wonder why we were so focused on them in the first place. Of course, we also had to ask about Breaking Dawn 2‘s more, ahem, ferocious sex scene, so be sure to stay tuned for her thoughts on that as well.

In case you were unaware, Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 hits theaters this Friday, Nov. 16. Check out the video below, and let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Largely shunned by her peers, she struck up friendships with the likes of Buffy Summers and the X-Men in their stead. After graduating from NYU where she studied political journalism, she moved to Los Angeles when she realized that writing about reality TV is a much nobler pursuit. She now lives in New York, again, with her two cats — Arya Stark and Joffrey Baratheon.
