I Am Number Four Star Teresa Palmer Discusses Her Twilight Look-Alike, Kristen Stewart

TeresaPalmer225.jpgThose not yet familiar with Teresa Palmer -- the up-and-coming Aussie actress (and former Verge subject) who stars in this weekend's I Am Number Four -- may have been a bit confused when they first saw the trailer for the DreamWorks sci-fi film, if only because the 24-year-old bears a striking resemblance to Twilight star Kristen Stewart -- a theory substantiated by the many Internet message boards devoted to this very subject. In a recent conversation with the actress, Movieline discussed the online comparisons with Palmer, who was relieved to finally address her cinematic doppelgänger head-on. Er, face-on.

"I get mistaken [for Kristen] all the time!," the actress exclaimed when Movieline first broached the subject. "The three [actresses] I usually get are Kristen Stewart, Naomi Watts and Scarlett Johansson, but hands down the number one I get is Kristen Stewart. It's all over the Internet. I can definitely see the resemblance. We have a similar shaped chin and we're both dark under our eyes with similar lips. I've been recognized for her before."

But the confusion is not limited to the Internet.

"Fans will come up to me and say, 'Oh, I loved you in Twilight' and ask for an autograph," Palmer explained. "One woman came up to me crying so hard -- absolutely sobbing. I was so confused. I thought, 'Did you see [my film with Adam Sandler] Bedtime Stories or something?' [Laughs] Then she was just going nuts about Twilight."

As for whether the comparisons ever get tiresome, Palmer explained that they are quite the contrary.

"I'm not sick of them. It's all flattering. What I love about Kristen Stewart is she is so edgy and so plays it against the norm. It's very refreshing to see an actress like that really get into the fact that she is different from everybody else and that's just the way she is. I've never met her but I love watching her onscreen. I think there is something dark and sexy about her. I think she is fiercely talented as well."

Look out for the rest of Movieline's conversation with Palmer next month.


  • speaks the truth says:

    she is waaaayyyy prettier than Kristen and doesn't have that whole "emo" thing going on, which for the record is so last decade.

  • Gavin says:

    You got that right mate! Kristen's got the dark and sexy look and the attitude to go along with it. She is unique in the midst of plastic.

  • BillW. says:

    Kristen is beautiful and unique and not Barbie plain like most actresses. At least Theresa knows KStew is prettier. Smart woman

  • Abbylee says:

    She never said Kristen is prettier and I see the resemblance but also, both of their acting abilities are lacking.

  • Teresa Palmer is an improved version of Kristen Stewart... Teresa is and relatively flawless and absolutely amazing!

  • Chris says:

    Uhm...sorry but she looks nothing like K-Stew..I doubt if what she said about fans going after her the whole time mistaken her to Kristen is true. Especially Kristen's fans would be able to know that she is not Kristen easily. She can try to look like her, but she will never be able. Sorry Teresa.

    • Jeremy Willer says:

      Hrm, she looks exactly like her lol. There's literally thousands of picture comparisons in google search. Which is what brought me here after seeing her in a film. I googled Kristen stewart lookalike and this article came up with Teresa's face. They look like they could easily be sisters, if not twins.

      • Chris says:

        Anyone can upload pictures with them. So what google says or shows is nothing. And you should check a bit better. Completely differen eyes, nose, lips, and teeth especially teeth. Sorry but, no.

    • Shanss says:

      This is just kind of honesty sharing that some kind of people like you will not understand ever. You can just through a opinion like shit. She does not try to look like her...!!! I like both of them respectively.

  • amber says:

    Teresa Palmer is gorgeous..
    Though they have some similarities but i say TPalmer is way better.

  • Kstew is better says:

    Sorry but she looks nothing like KStew. She looks like Amber Heard....kinda....Kristen is way more pretty!!

  • prabha says:

    she is older thn kristn why she try to look like her besides she is preetist thn her u r a big fan of stewart that's why u r joulous..u can see kristn pictures she is become worse now

  • Hailey says:

    I say Teresa palmer is more prettier!!!!!!!!

  • grant says:

    I remember when i saw Warm Bodies. I said to my buddy who was watching it with me that the twilight chick looked better than ever in that movie. He agreed, but my gf who liked those awful twilight movies said thats not kristen stewart thats teresa palmer! me and my buddy said "that explains it" you can see an extremely close resemblance between the two in a lot of pics and a few movies, but Tpalmer is in me, my friends, and my gfs opinion both prettier and a better actress. Really theres no reason to hate on either personally and opinions are like a$$holes, everyones got one and they all stink. Ppl who argue opinion like its fact are stupid.

  • Richy says:

    TPalmer is honest about mistaken her with KStewart and says something good about KStewart. Like the way TPalmer said about the confusion. TPalmer has clear mind. I like both of them respectively.

  • Pablo says:

    hahaha she is trying to be more known through that, but no she looks nothing like kstew. Also, even Kristen has better acting skills than her (and that says a lot)
