Kristen Stewart 's July fling with director Rupert Sanders wasn't exactly as epic and supernatural as Bella Swan's relationships with a vampire (real-life love  Robert Pattinson) and a werewolf (Taylor Lautner) in the Twilight Saga.

Still, fans were reminded of Stewart's notorious affair as the 22-year-old actress promoted Breaking Dawn Part 2 in Tokyo, Japan on Wednesday. Speaking at a fan event, Stewart got philosophical and empathetic about her character's complicated connections to Edward (Pattinson) and Jacob (Lautner).

"As a woman, I think it's really important not to discredit feelings," she explained of Bella's attachments to both men. "There weren't too many difficulties with the whole love triangle thing. I mean, she needs Jacob in her life."

She continued: "If you can get past conventions and what everyone else is thinking, then you can have what you want. [Bella, Edward and Jacob] get to a point where they get to have everything and that's nice."

Having cautiously reconciled in private last month, Stewart and Pattinson, 26, embarked on their own Breaking Dawn Part 2 promo tours, with Pattinson touching down in Australia earlier this week.
