Kristen Stewart Begins The Long Good Bye To Twilight In Japan
Kristen Stewart gave her first farewell comments to Twilight and her character Bella in Tokyo ahead of the super-popular franchise's final installment, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which opens in November. She said parting with Twilight is hard, but Bella, Robert Pattinson's Edward and Taylor Lautner's Jacob have been able to get "everything."
"I'm definitely not excited for it to be over," Stewart said at a recent press conference in Japan as quoted by Access Hollywood. "But, now that the whole story is told and everything is done and we don't have those big moments weighing on us [and now] that Bella can finally have everything that she wants, I can't wait for everyone to feel that as well."
Stewart said the love triangle between Bella, Robert Pattinson's Edward and Lautner's Jacob carried the story in the earlier installments of Twilight carried the story, but her marriage and subsequent conversion to vampirism ushered in a new relationship.
"The whole love triangle thing -- she needs Jacob in her life, he needs her in the same way, it's not like [an] unbalanced thing," noted Stewart. "I think that they really offer each other so much and if you can get past conventions and what everyone else is thinking, and have what you want, then you're gonna be a much happier person.... They really do get to a point where they get to have everything and it's nice."
Down in Australia promoting the film, Pattinson said recently that Stewart's entree as a vampire had been quite an experience for the actress, and unlike others who had been playing parts of the undead in other installments.
"Yeah, she was really excited about being a vampire. Everybody else who’d been pretty consistently in the movies, they’d obviously been playing a vampire like every day for ages. And so it’s funny seeing someone suddenly come into it and try and figure out their own version of the physicality and the mentality of it. But her character has a different thing, because she’s supposed to find it really easy. It’s supposed to be a natural progression for her to become a vampire, it’s supposed to be simple. So I guess it was kind of different."
"I think it represents a stage of life that is so full and it's so full of feeling and I think that it really attracts people that have faith in those feelings and it doesn't discredit them," added Stewart. "I think it's fairly rare to have a story that really gives a lot of credit to young girls that haven't figured it all out yet, but are incredibly trusting of themselves. I think that a really good, hard-hitting, fundamentally charged love story is always gonna -- I don't know - it's always going to fuel something inside of us."
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 opens November 16th.
