If you haven’t heard of Kristen Stewart, the chances are that you aren’t a teenage girl or the parents of one. If however you are above the age of 19, are an avid reader, and like to keep up with what’s new and hot, you may have also heard of her. She is the new starlet who has been cast into a very bright spotlight after her character, Bella, has helped the Twilight movies and books take the world by storm. In the trilogy, Bella, played by Stewart, is the love interest of Edward Cullen, a vampire.
I, being above the age of 19 and an avid reader (although not so up on what’s hot) have both read the first book as well as seen the movie and I can tell you in both, the chemistry between Bella and Edward is hot. I was a huge skeptic at first but you kind of want to forget the fact that he’s a vampire and just root for this couple to make it. While this works out terrificly for those who made the movie, it doesn’t work out so well for Kristen Stewart, the actress. When I first heard this, I assumed it must be because all the teenage girls falling in the love with the film are jealous. Robert Pattinson, who stars as Edward Cullen, is also hot, hot, hot and teenage girls are petty. Sooo petty. But in fact, it seems the exact opposite is the problem. Apparently, fans of the movie want the two to get together. From Gossip Girls,
“But in real life, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are not dating, although “Twilight” fans wish they would.
The “Bella” actress tells USA Today newspaper that she thinks fans hate her – because she isn’t dating Robert Pattinson. She explains, “Girls are scary. Large groups of girls scare the crap out of me. They covet Rob. I think half of them are so jealous that they hate me.”
I guess things have changed since my day, although the screaming, crying, scratching girls all sounds about right. Teenage girls definitely can be a frightening bunch. I actually don’t really care whether or not Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson get together in real life, as long as they keep making these great movies.
