I can't honestly say that I knew her as a recognizable figure before Twilight. I had seen her other movies, like Speak, but she wasn't someone I really recognized. But then when the movie came out, I had already read the books, and was all in to Alice and Jasper, so I didn't pay much attention to Kristen. But then, a friend of mine had a huge girl crush on her, and she sat suivant to me in chemistry, so I always heard about Kristen from her,and eventually something clicked in me, and I realized that she is the most amazing actress. I can't honestly tell toi I knew of her before Twilight, but I can honestly tell toi that my l’amour and respect for her as an actress has nothing to do with Twilight.
I liked her way before Twilight, the first movie I saw her in was Panic Room but I didn't really care about the jouer la comédie then, then I saw Speak in 2004/05 and I started to like her, then I started to se plus of her films and now (before Twilight) she is my favori actress. I liked Twilight to before the movie, so I was happy that she was going to be Bella. So I liked her before Twilight.
I'm pretty sure there's a lot of people who are going to say they liked her since Panic Room ou some shit like that, but I seriously can't believe that. Why would toi become of fan of hers since Panic Room? Since then she always done smaller films and,as musiclikelove said, her roles didn't make her all that recognizable. I mean, I liked her in Zathura [the most character she's ever had] and Speak, but still wasn't something to become a fan of her over for. It was Twilight that made me a fan [kind of] of hers, but....eh. I like her look half the time, everything else, such as her jouer la comédie skills and interview skills, make me carve my cœur, coeur out with a spoon.
I didn't really know Kristen yet, even Panic Room I didn't know. When Twilight became famous, I absolutely LOATHED it, but when New Moon began to montrer its videos, pictures and other stuff, I became a bit interested so I watched the movie and I was amazed par Kris and I became a fan of hers then I watched her other films like Adventureland, Zathura, Panic Room etc.
So what I'm trying to say is, I became a fan of her thanks to New Moon, but now I don't l’amour her JUST BECAUSE of the Twilight Saga. :)
Well i am! my first moviue par her was zathura! and i was ok she acts good! and i liked her work! but i dnt think that twilight is the best work par her! i think its the worst! idk why but i just dnt liked the way she acts in twilight! otherwise in other films she did good! idk her jouer la comédie seems like fake and expressionless in twilight! PLZ GUYZ NO OFFENCE i am A KRISTEN fan and i like her a lot!!!
I have seen Zathura and Panic Room before Twilight and I thought she's a great actress and she deserves plus credit.Then I saw Twilight,and even though I was happy she's finally recognisable to the wider public,I thought that it's a shame to be donné such a two dimensional characters as Bella Swan.To sum up,I l’amour Kristen Stewart mostly because of her earlier and upcoming work(e.g.The Runaways)than for the Twilight Saga.
I know there's a lot of people who say that they've been serious fans of Kristen before Twilight [since Panic Room]. To be honest, most time I think people are bullshitting. It's kind of a hypocritical thing of me to do, but I've ~liked her since Speak. I guess it was Zathura and Into The Wild that made me kind of a 'fan' of hers. But yeah, I definitely don't like her because she was in Twilight. That really isn't a contributing factor for me. Although, time to time I wonder why I actually like her that much [I do have my reasons], since her jouer la comédie skills are pretty crap and her interviews drive me crazy.
