One of Kristen Stewart’s last interviews with author Talia Soghomonian (of the new book detailing the Twilight phenomenon) has been published online, and in it she talks about how people’s perceptions of her and Bella changed over the years, and even how she started being treated differently.
She says, “On the Twilight sets, towards the end, I found that people didn’t really talk to us anymore, which was weird. It was like they possibly were even told: "Hey, leave them alone. If you don’t have a reason to talk to them, don’t just go up to them." And I hate that. Don’t protect me, I’m fine, it’s like, now you are just completely isolating me, so thanks. And then it makes them seem like you are the one possibly who said that to people, which is like, do not represent me, ever. That is the most horrifying idea that that happens unbeknownst to me, but I am sure it does. Just really annoying.”
She also talks about giving Bella a new attitude in the final movie (Breaking Dawn: Part 2) – she says, “One answer to that is that Alice dresses her after she becomes a vampire, because she’s so busy afterwards and she’s so focused on other things, like having the self-control to not rip everyone’s throat out. And the fact that she’s got this child. So, they dress her. For a second, I was like: "Do we hold onto the idea that Bella doesn’t think about it, and so she just kind of looks plain [laughs] and puts on whatever is handed to her and it’s a natural, easy thing, or did she choose these things?" Now her clothes are pretty straightforward but she will wear a random pair of high-heeled boots, so it’s like: "Whoa, Bella, what are you doing? This is weird."
Breaking Dawn: Part 2 will be released November 16th, 2012.
