The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is nearly upon us, and our own Andrew Gunsberg scored the biggest ticket in Hollywood – the chance to interview Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
Over the years, Kristen Stewart’s character Bella has been criticised for wanting nothing more than to be with Edward, and not really displaying any feminist leanings or interest in life in general.
But Kristen is thrilled to be playing such a strong female character, who really comes into her own once her transformation to vampire is complete in Breaking Dawn Part 2. And Kristen told us she wishes there were more great roles out there for females.
“The fact that it’s been acknowledged, this gaping hole that has been wanting to be filled for a long time which is movies that are female oriented... and you’re not just playing a girlfriend and you’ve got a female protagonist who is actually a girl,” Kristen told thehothits.com.
“I read so many scripts now that it’s like they’ve changed Bobby to Sue, and it’s like OK cool, but let’s actually make her a girl. A strong girls great, but this fake girl power thing is the most nauseating, disgusting thing. I want no part of it.
“So I feel like anything, the fact that she actually represents a woman’s strength, not to totally generalise but when a guy feels something really a lot, and you can’t put your finger on it, you move past it, it doesn’t exist.
“Girls kind of have an innate trust in those feelings, and seeing those through to the end was the most satisfying, validation for being “a crazy girl”, which we all tend to be sometimes.”
And Taylor revealed that he absolutely loved getting beaten up by Kristen in a fight scene, while Rob was just his usual charming self.
