Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart discussed Still Alice at AFI Fest
The days of Twilight are long gone for Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, but just because they’re over doesn’t mean they’re forgotten.
Stewart, who played the lead in the young adult series film adaptation (like we could forget Bella Swan), has since moved on and has even tried to drop her teenybopper persona with other hard-hitting roles, but she dishes to Interview magazine (by way of Patti Smith) that those movies remain an extremely important part of her life.
“Anybody who wants to talk s–t about Twilight, I completely get it, but there’s something there that I’m endlessly, and to this day, f–king proud of,” she Smith. “My memory of it felt—still feels—really good.”
Thank goodness she has no regrets about it, because we certainly don’t either! #TeamEdwardForLife.

Here is what the 24-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On women in film: “It’s silly to play the devil’s advocate when having a conversation about female roles in Hollywood, because then you’re doing this ‘reverse feminism’ thing that has become weirdly trendy recently. I feel like some girls around my age are less inclined to say, ‘Of course I’m a feminist, and of course I believe in equal rights for men and women,’ because there are implications that go along with the word feminist that they feel are too in-your-face or aggressive. A lot of girls nowadays are like, ‘Eww, I’m not like that.’ They don’t get that there’s no one particular way you have to be in order to stand for all of the things feminism stands for.”
On scriptwriting: “I wrote a sick short film that I’m really proud of. It’s more abstract rather than super narrative. It’s like a poem; it’s about water. People ask, ‘Why not just direct a feature?’ But I want to play around first. I want to have experience. I think the first thing I’m going to make will live in the in-between moments.”

(Reuters) – Despite selecting characters that would remove him from his best-known role as a hunky, brooding teen vampire, British actor Robert Pattinson cannot seem to shake his “Twilight” past.
At the Berlin Film Festival premiere of “Life,” in which Pattinson plays a photographer renowned for taking iconic photos of actor James Dean, a bevy of screaming girls awaited the 28-year-old actor, some lining up for hours to meet their “Twilight” idol.
Pattinson reflected on his career, being the inspiration for “Fifty Shades of Grey” and the “Twi-hard” fan base.
David Cronenberg specializes in psychological horror, so it’s no surprise that his skewering of Hollywood in Maps to the Stars is as disturbing as any film he’s ever made. Written by novelist Bruce Wagner, Maps tells the story of the scarred Weiss family—most famous because of son Benjie (Evan Bird), a Culkin-like star of the hit comedy Bad Babysitter who’s growing uncomfortably comfortable with his growing clout while he simultaneously crashes in to puberty. His chain-smoking mother (Olivia Williams) plots his next career move, while his father (John Cusack) is a renowned TV psychologist with famous clients. One of them is the aging actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), who is obsessed with starring in the remake of her famous mother’s greatest film.
Any sense of serenity is disturbed when Agatha (Mia Wasikowska) arrives in L.A. on a bus from Florida. Sweet but awkward, with severe burns on her body, she befriends her limo driver (Rob Pattinson), expresses an interest in tracking down the Weisses, and finagles a job as Havana’s assistant based on a recommendation from Carrie Fisher. Hollywood is a small, small world. Practically incestuous.
Kristen Stewart’s had a whirlwind past few years, and the Still Alice star is ready for some well-deserved downtime.
During a stop on this morning’s Live! With Kelly and Michael, the former Twilight star explained that she’s been enjoying taking a break from Hollywood to relax and focus on other hobbies.
K.Stew admitted that after working “for a solid two years” she just wants to keep a low profile.
“I need to breathe,” she shared, before hesitating about divulging exactly what she would be doing on her time off.
“You can say one thing about a detail of your life and it expands like wildfire. Like, ‘Oh, so you’re a painter now!’ I’m like, ‘Not at all, I’m like in middle school art class in my garage, basically.'”
Let’s begin by making things clear: Kristen Stewart is not, at the age of 24 and with 33 film credits in the past 15 years, quitting Hollywood.
But Stewart has been carving out her own career path since graduating from the Twilight series, focusing on such smaller, independent features as Camp X-Ray, Clouds of Sils Maria, and, most recently, in Still Alice, where she plays Lydia, a daughter who must care for her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother — played by the Golden Globe-winning, Oscar-nominated Julianne Moore.
Stewart, however, wants to keep things unpredictable and is always willing to take a chance. Like, perhaps, a blockbuster Marvel or DC film. “I love watching those movies,” she tells Yahoo Movies. “I would love to show people that I can do more than just be ‘Kristen Stewart’ in a different movie, in a different circumstance.” She notes her past role as Snow White in the big-budget fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman could be a jumping off point for a superhero role. “I’m sure I could get on board with Captain America, you know what I mean?… It would just have to be the right thing.”
It’s no secret that Kristen Stewart is a huge fan of Julianne Moore (who isn’t, right?!).
While appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night, the 24-year-old actress opened up about playing the daughter of a woman with Alzheimer’s in her and Moore’s flick Still Alice.
“With anything that’s worth doing it’s always gonna scare you a bit,” Stewart said of the heavy subject matter. “And you’d have to be a bit of a sociopath to not stand in front of what Julianne did and be affected by it. Anything in that movie that you see, it’s so real. We were so honestly just there together.”
Well, hello Kristen Stewart!
The actress was a showstopper tonight at the New York screening for her new film Still Alice when she showed up to the red carpet in this stunning little number by Roksanda.
K.Stew turned heads in this sleeveless sheer black silk Ellsworth dress with cobalt blue and black piping from the Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Collection that gave a glimpse at her black bra and skirt. Stewart added a bright coral belt for a pop of color and showed off a sultry smokey eye.
Seriously, she looks amazing.
Kristen Stewart may look like a badass, but she doesn’t always feel like one.
Recently, Salon’s deputy entertainment editor Anna Silman paid the 24-year-old Still Alice actress a compliment, saying, “You are kind of a hero to people, in a way. A lot of people admire what they see as your give-no-f–ks attitude.” The comment surprised Stewart, who replied, “I’m like, actually, ‘No one gives a f–k like me. No one gives more of a f–k than me.’ It’s just ironic to me. I’m always like, ‘Really?'”
Who could blame her for being wary of the spotlight?
Stewart has been a tabloid target since ever since Twilight was released in November 2008. “I have not always been completely comfortable being shoved into the brightest, most blinding spotlight you can imagine,” the star admitted. “That was always tough, but on the other side of it, what I do, I love that.”
