Kristen Stewart is one of the most in-demand young actresses in Hollywood, but her former co-star, Jodie Foster, swears she didn't see it coming.
"I just love Kristen Stewart, but I didn't think she'd choose to be an actress," Foster, who played Stewart's mother in the 2002 thriller "Panic Room," tells the Hollywood Reporter. "I said to her mom, 'She doesn't want that, right?' And she's like, ‘Well, yes, she kind of does.'"
Foster believed the "Twilight" star would opt out of show business because she seemed so reserved.
"She's very much like me: She's not comfortable in life being a big externally emotional person, beating her chest, crying every five minutes," says "The Beaver" director. "I felt she was such an intelligent technician, so interested in camera – I thought that would translate to other things.”
