Kristen Stewart: I love me a vampire

Kristen Stewart catches a lot of flak for mentioning in interviews how "Twilight" fandom has kind of/sort of taken over her life, but she didn't sound as down and out in a new interview with W magazine.

In a word, the "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" wedding was "Awesome," she tells W in the September issue. "This was my first wedding. It was insane. And odd. The wedding dress experience was a huge deal. I tried on one version of the dress, and it was like tweak and tweak and alter and tweak and change, and then it’s done. BFD [as in big f-–g deal] dress. Huge deal."

Read more from Kristen Stewart's interview with W magazine

"It was major," she goes on. "The last 'Twilight' book is filled with BFDs, things that people have been waiting for for so long. For me, it was ridiculously dramatic: I get married, give birth, the baby has an incredibly accelerated growth rate we’re all very concerned about, and I say goodbye to my dad for the last time ever. It was all big—I could never go, 'Whew, I’m losing this character.'"

And although she still admits that the "Twilight" fame can make her uncomfortable, it doesn't sound like she'd trade in her work on the franchise for lower wattage stardom.

"I f-–g love me a vampire," Stewart laughs. "I was 17 when I read 'Twilight,' and at the time it was so perfect for me. The script was about young kids who think they can handle stuff that they just can’t. And they’re going to do it anyway. Because, why not? Just torture yourself. I relate to that. Vampires are a little dangerous—and we girls like to test ourselves."

The final installment of the series, adapted from books by Stephenie Meyer, has been broken into two parts, with "Breaking Dawn - Part I" bowing on November 18 and the second half arriving in theaters in 2012. Seeing that she's played Bella Swan from the age of 17 to 21, Stewart was understandably expecting to have a certain kind of "moment" when the movie franchise wrapped, although it didn't come as she thought it would.

"I was going, 'Oh, my God—I wonder how I'm going to feel.' And the last scene of the shoot was at the wedding. Every single character was there on set. At the end of that day, I was kind of whacked. And so I never really had that moment then," Stewart recalls. "Instead, it happened later. We needed to film one more sort of honeymoon scene and we went to the Virgin Islands. After that scene, my true final scene, I felt like I could shoot up into the night sky and every pore of my body would shoot light. I felt lighter than I've ever felt in my life."

    Once they release the behind the scenes of the shoot then all you losers can shut up. She's a naturally pretty girl. The makeup just highlights her good traits. Airbrushing yes, photoshopping no. Too much makeup? Turn on a kardashian show and you see what too much makeup looks like.

    It's so funny to see some of the comments...I agree the Twilight films was not great acting but check out the movie "The Cake Eaters" Kristen was really good. Give her some slack....I can't figure out the animosity in what some of you have to say. In these photos she was supposed to represent the 60's and did that beautifully. She would be great as Natalie Wood!

    1. This girl is a terrible actress. One of the worst I've ever seen. She's wooden, she's boring, and I don't ever believe a word out of her mouth. Then again, Twilight anything sucks really bad. Its like a teenage girls diary. Most people are too embarrassed once they grow up to actually show this kind of garbage to people.

    2. Those photos look like they are straight out of the 60's. That is not a good thing. This is 2011, not 1969. The photographer should be embarrassed and then fired.

    I don't understand the USA. This is the only country where a girl that is so awkward, bland, and talent-less can have a successful career in the entertainment industry. She is a horrible actress and it is disturbing that there are millions of young women with superior acting skills compared to K. Stewart. Her acting roles are equivalent to her real life personality. No range, no emotion, just that same tired a$$ look.

    This girl always has the same deer in headlights expression on her face, just no personality at all, plus what's up with the gaping mouth thing she always does? These pictures are so airbrushed, yes she's "pretty" but this is an obvious overdone airbrush job. How is she still getting work? She's a horrible actress, nice to look at though.

  16. Makeup by Jules

    As a makeup artist you can use an actual airbrush machine for everything from foundation, blush, eyes, and yes even draw by hand wider/fuller lips with either a colored liner or nude liner and then the artist can either add lip color by brush or use the airbrush color. You have to have a wonderful primer on the face and even before a photo is taken the person looks "airbrushed" it is amazing add the right lighting and you get an awesome picture. *** The industry is actually frowning upon post photo airbrushing (as in photo shop airbrushing) like Julia Roberts makeup ads that were pulled from a few countries

    Man, it's called "Makeup", you never looked at someone at night all done up and then seen them the next morning. You can't all be that naive. Was the person in the club "airbrushed", or just done up nicely?

    Ugh! One of the worst "actors" ever. (if you can even call her that) She has never been good at making her self seem even slightly intelligent. She has one facial expression, a flip of the hair and a half ass smile. Yes, I'm hating. Because there are many other more deserving people than this gal.

    She smokes pot and she swears. Ages human. However, she definitely doesn't look like those pictures. Just google her and you can see her without any makeup. In most pics it may look like she doesn't wear any, but there is usually major cover up going on with a bit of mascara and light shadow and maybe some blush and bronzer. But there is one pic on Google of her without any makeup and she is NOT attractive because her face always has so much on it, and when women wear tons of makeup, then take it off, they look horrible because their face is all worn Nd so used to that crap.

      and....this is where I eye roll. Because what are you trying to prove? That she doesn't look as good without makeup? Yeah, that's like a given. lol I've seen her sans makeup, and there are times where she has really dark circles under her eyes and even bags and she looks like she needs a year of sleep. that doesn't take away from the fact she has some killer features that makeup alone can't cure. Great nose, great eyes, good bone structure, symmetrical face, great skin-these are the things that make transformations like this one possible – along with makeup and yes, even some airbrushing.

    • tera

      she's beautiful, so when she's glammed up like this the pictures, the end result is wowza. Editing and airbrushing isn't able to make that big of a difference, unless they photoshop to high heaven. Look at pictures of her normally. She's got clear skin, delicate features, wide set eyes, straight nose, nice cheekbones. There isn't a lot of "editing" needed to be done as a result. All I see is some airbrushing and lip plumper going on.

    • dena

      Don't fool yourself . Airbrushing doesn't make everyone beautiful. They used her beautiful features and worked with her main assets. I don't get why she doesn't glam herself more often, she beautiful, with a beautiful skin and stiking eyes. She manages to pull off being seductive, classic Hollywood glam, while still maintaining a subtle drop of innocence. you can see her awkward look on the cover. It's her but with more makeup than usual.

      it's a cover shot of W magazine, of course it's air-brushed. But I don't see much photoshopping at all. Those look like her features there, they are good features to play off of in terms of makeup and styling. the only real alteration is drawing a wider outline for her lips and then painting it in. Makeup and airbrushing only get you so far, you have to have a good foundation to get these kinds of results.

      porto – I"m sure you make a glorious woman if dragged up, but no, you wouldn't look as good as kristen. I get what you're saying-put enough makeup on and you can achieve a look. But the more makeup you have to slop on, the more you end up looking like a drag queen, that goes for women too. That's why heavily made up women using the same techniques as Kristen here end up looking like trannies, cause the heavy makeup may glamourize, but it also makes them look more garrish too. KRisten does not look like a drag queen-the end result is her looking like an Elizabeth Taylor Jr. BIG DIFFERENCE between tranny and Elizabeth, and that has to do with the fact that Ms. Kristen actually has some great features that are enhanced by the stylizing.

We do not want Bella to sound like that and will not support a actress who does, so after Twilight I will not see any more of her movies! I think a lot of people feel this way.SO CLEAN Up your act ISTEN
