Kristen Stewart Looks Back at ‘Twilight’ Fame: It Got Pretty Uncomfortable

Bella and Edward forever! Kristen Stewart looked back at her Twilight days during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday, November 11.

The Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk actress, 26, joked about her look back then when host Ellen DeGeneres shared pics of her with the cast. Watch what she had to say in the clip above!

“Really uncomfortable hair extensions?” Stewart teased of what she remembered. “I look at those photos and I feel like I’m looking at a college yearbook. It was just after my high school experience would have been, so it feels like just after. I don’t jump right back into those memories, but as soon as you see a picture you’re just, ‘Oh, god, it’s like yesterday.'”

Stewart became a household name thanks to the vampire franchise, which was based on the books by Stephenie Meyer. The film series includes Twilight (2008), The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 (2011) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 (2012).

“[Twilight] was something I really invested in. It mattered to so many people. Something personal became not the most personal thing, which is awesome because to share that is great, but at the same time I was 17 or 18 when it all kind of went down, and that’s the most uncomfortable, terrible, weird [time],” she told the comedian. “But at the same time, it was good. It kind of forced me to stand at attention in this way.”

Stewart’s high-profile romance with costar Robert Pattinson also threw her into the spotlight. The pair ended their four-year relationship for good in 2013, months after Stewart cheated on him with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. (Us Weekly posted exclusive photos of the affair in July 2012.)

“It was incredibly painful,” Stewart told The Daily Beast of the breakup in September 2015. “Not all of my friends have been through what I’ve been through, or what some people have tasted at a relatively speaking young age, and we were not expected to do anything. Everything that we did was explorative, and a meditation on what we already knew.”

The exes have both moved on. Pattinson and FKA twigs got engaged in April 2015. Last month, Us broke the news that Stewart is dating alternative rocker St. Vincent.
