Take a look back at the roles that secured these celebs' spots on the A-list
Kristen Stewart, Into the Wild
Stewart had a few feature films under her belt before she signed on to 2007's Into the Wild (The Panic Room with Jodie Foster at age 11, most notably.) Still, her performance in the flick based on Jon Krakauer's book got her noticed by Twilight's casting director -- as well as her future boyfriend, Robert Pattinson.
