Following the huge global success of the Twilight novels, it was no surprise when it was announced that the books were being adapted for the big screen, and also no surprise when these movies went on to become hugely successful at the box office. However, the movies themselves were actually heavily criticised, especially the performances of the lead stars in the films.
The Twilight movie franchise managed to gross over $3.3bn worldwide and, while it has made global superstars of the likes of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, among others, they still came in for some heavy criticism. It has been interesting to see how these young stars have coped with the criticism and how their careers have developed since the end of the Twilight franchise.
Kristen Stewart received a lot of criticism for her performances in the role of Bella Swan, with many saying that she was emotionless and unconvincing as the character. However, rather than sit back and let these negative comments get the better of her, Kristen has gone on to land some impressive acting roles, in some exciting projects giving us some strong performances along the way.
There is no denying that Kristen Stewart is a very talented actress and, while the negative Twilight comments will always come back to haunt her, all she can do is continue to prove herself in the acting industry and leave those comments in the past. Kristen is still only 24 years old and has a long and promising future ahead of her, with the potential to be one of the biggest and best stars in the business.
As far as her acting career is concerned, Kristen Stewart appears in the new movie Anesthesia, which co-stars Corey Stoll, Glenn Close, and Michael Kenneth Williams. Anesthesia has been written and directed by Tim Blake Nelson, who also has a role in the movie, with the film set to debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.
