Kristen Stewart: I'd Make Bella a Vampire
Although her New Moon character is torn between a vampire (Robert Pattinson's Edward) and a werewolf (Taylor Lautner's Jacob), Kristen Stewart would like some dark superpowers of her own: the undead, bloodsucking kind.
At Wednesday's "fan party" following the New Moon premiere in London, Stewart mused on what she'd like to change about her protagonist, Bella. "I'd make her a vampire," the 19 year-old actress said.
Yet she did weigh in on the "Team Jacob vs. Team Edward" debate: "I'd make [Bella] pick Jacob for sure."
Surprised? Don't be: the actress has explained this sensible choice in the past. "Objectively, from the outside, she should be with Jacob," she has said. "She's best friends with him, he's warm, it's easy, there's no problems there."
But there's absolutely no real-life rivalry between the young men playing Edward and Jacob. "Absolutely not!" Lautner, 17, said at the London event. "It's hard to pretend to hate [Pattinson] because he's the nicest guy."
The bromantic feelings are mutual. Pattinson recently told Vanity Fair that Lautner deals with fans and press "much better" than he can. "He's completely handling it. I'm just freaking out all the time."
