Kristen Stewart Cried While Filming Twilight Eclipse
As the star of the ‘Twilight Saga’ Kristen Stewart knows that millions of fans wait anxiously to see her on screen as Bella Swan. But fame also means pressure – and in trying to give Twi-hards her best performance possible, Kristen often broke down in tears.
In an interview with the Vancouver Sun, Eclipse director David Slade admits, “there were tears” on the Twilight set, revealing Kristen’s struggle to relate to her character Bella.
“[Kristen] would say, ‘I don’t know who Bella is to me.’ In a lot of ways, I think she felt Bella was the antithesis to her, which presented a lot of challenges for Kristen… She would beat herself up about it, because she wants to be there. She never wants to leave a scene undone”
“Kristen, in particular, was very tough on herself,” David added. Noting that all actors can get insecure –especially when facing the rabid anticipation surrounding a series like Twilight. “Even in rehearsals with Rob, there was a similar spiraling that would happen,” he said.
