Born on April 9th, 1990, Kristen Jaymes Stewart is the female star of the 'Twilight Saga' movies, where she plays the role of 17 year old Bella Swan. The 'Twilight Saga' is a series of five movies which have propelled Kristen to the height of fame - and earned her an army of adoring fans.
Since Kristen was born and raised in Los Angeles to parents who were both employed in the movie industry, it might seem unsurprising that Kristen has a successful career as an actress. But this was never her intention: as a young girl, Kristen planned to become a screenwriter or director. Her talent for acting was spotted during an elementary school play, and she's never looked back.
On top of her work in the 'Twilight Saga' movies, Kristen has also starred in a number of other films, including the drama 'The Runaways' alongside Dakota Fanning. She also had a role in the movie 'Adventureland' alongside Hollywood heartthrob, Ryan Reynolds. Kristen is a loyal supporter of independent movies and has featured in several. Critics have praised Kristen's sincere, slightly spooky performances – perfect for the vampire-themed 'Twilight Saga' series.
Kristen's clear green eyes and thick, auburn hair are her stand-out features and she's not afraid of using plenty of black eyeliner to complete her look. Although she looks elegant in full-length gowns on the red carpet, Kristen's also pretty good at rocking the edgy, alternative look – think sassy blazers, black lace-trimmed dresses and killer heels.
