Watch: Kristen Stewart explains 'Twilight' stutter

It took more than a pair of colored contacts to transform Kristen Stewart's "Twilight" character, Bella Swan, into the vampire Bella Cullen.

As the 22-year-old actress explains in a special feature clip from the DVD/Blu-ray edition of the final "Twilight" installment, she had to ditch the quirks that came naturally to her in order to portray an assured, super-strong and speedy vamp.

"I've yet to play somebody who was a huge departure for me. I mean, to be completely still and controlled, and to know that your mind works faster," Stewart said of the character transition. "Being a clumsy person, it's not the easiest thing to do. The way I usually learn my lines is I learn the idea, which is why I stutter a lot in 'Twilight.'"

Check out how Stewart adjusted to her new character in the clip above. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, digital download and video on demand March 2.

  3. Where is Truth?

    So this is what adults do with their time? Comment on a young 22's life- grading her abilities and mapping out her future along with snipnets of bodily function talk. What a great group with a need to be heard and nothing to say. I know that as long as I have never walked in Kristen's shoes, Jennifer's Lawrence's, Julia Robert's, or Anne Hathaway's I never have a right to criticize. From what I can tell of Kristen Stewart she is a very hard worker, who loves to act and I think is very good. She's young and I think will be around long past Twilight- she likes the business and has earned her place as an actress and that she will do. She's not interested in being a star to please the critics- she will get to do what she loves and I think she will be gracious and thankful. I know she certainly admits her mistakes and doesn't try to pretend she didn't make them or blame anyone else. Much more mature than adults talking about poop.

    She is good looking, has ok talent, but yes no personality.

    The only reason she looked like a cracked out mumbler at the

    I've enjoyed every movie I've seen that she has appeared in recently. I enjoyed all of the twilight movies. The Yellow Hankerchief was amazing and Welcome to the Rileys was compelling acting as well.
    The girl has talent. And anyone that thinks she's not attractive has a valid opinion just like anyone else. But the numerous magazines and fashion blogs that show her in pictorial after pictorial as a glamour model would tend to disagree with you. She's beautiful.
    Now as a person...yes I have some issues with her. She's slovenly and appears lazy much of the time...but I don't work 18+ hour days like she does. I wont judge her until walking in her shoes. My opinion she's pretty kewl.

      Really? Know her that well personally, do you? And her father is not an entertainment lawyer, do your homework. She's been a working acress for years, and is stil highly sought-after, and this 40-something has seen too many movies to mention, and she (Kristen) does rather well, comparatively, to most acresses out today or previously. Keep your personal venom to yourself; it isnt constructive dialogue.

    Jennifer Lawrence has blown her out of the water. There was supposed to be a sequel to Snow White, but her little "mistake" killed that. Charleze Theron jumped all over her for that because she cost them all the chance to make a lot of money. Never sleep with a married director and get help for the stuttering.

You don't personally know her and you say things like that. Could you say that straight to her face? Stand in front of her and say it and wait for an answer or have someone do that to you? Would you like to have people start rumors about you and say bad things about you whether they were true or not?
      Also, remember that what ever you put up on the internet is there forever. Would you like your boss or someone of authority read what you post? Think about it.
