Actually Kristen Stewart can act, and does fit the role, otherwise the director/producer woudn’t have appointed her. It annoys me when people say “oh so and so is rubbish at acting and don’t fit the rol”, because they are obviously wrong. I mean who are you gonna trust more, some random person or the professional?


April 30th, 2009 at 6:35 pm

Kristen Stewart can act. I’ve seen a few other of her movies and (trust me)…she can act. I’ve read the book over a million times and she has the role of Bella down perfectly! All the peeps who think she is terrible at acting…i’d love to see you try to portray the role of Bella. Don’t go and make judgments about Kristen Stewart when you know that you couldn’t of done a better job at it than she did. No one can top her acting job!


May 2nd, 2009 at 4:16 pm

hey dena i agree 100% with you about kristen stewart! she nailed bella in twilight and with the new moon trailors on youtube i’ve seen new moon will be even better! in the book you could imagine the kind of person bella would be but bella just tops it! she fits the charcter PERFECT!…;)

I read that a lot, the whole “Kristen Stewart can’t act” thing, and I must say that I am Team Switzerland (Twilight thing) on this debate. Firstly, I dont think anyone has the right to say whether a person is talented at something or not. That’s one third of my opinion. Also, the Kristen-haters are simply jealous. I’m not sticking up for her here, just stating an obvious fact. The ones who criticise her are jealous – maybe because of co-star Robert Pattinson, or landing the Bella role, or just being a damn good actress, which is proved by the sheer achievement of her beating thousands of other girls who also wanted the role. And finally, I think that all the people who comment on either “side” should just stay Switzerland. Whoa, that was a long post. And, to be totally fan-girl: Twilight Rock and I suffer from OTD, OED, OECD, OCD, etc…

Hey there guys
I have to agree with those that feel Kristen Stewart isnt right to play Bella. It’s not because she cannot act but, i read the books after the film and reading on from twilight to new moon, right through to breaking dawn, i just couldnt picture bella as a kristen stewart i’m afraid. She is a wicked actor and if she adapts to the role that bella takes then more the better but i reckon it will be a tough job, but then what do i know i can’t act.


May 27th, 2009 at 1:10 pm

just to say kristen stewart is right she is the best person for the role and i love her acting shes wonderful and so is robert pattinson both of them is really good so no matter what other people say kristen is the right person for bella swan

June 7th, 2009 at 3:59 am

um twilight is awsum!!!
well every1 knows dat bu um, seriously some gurls need 2 get a life(not tryna be mean) but honestly Kristen Is AWSUM…
she the rite gurl 2 play bella. and she does ac well 4 the part… she deserved iht, so sum peeple shuld onestly keep their thoughts 2 themselves… shes gorgeous… her and rob make the best couple in the movie. so jst leave her alone shes only human lyk da rest of us… ur’ll jst hav 2 wait 4 ur turn if ur so jealous… mayb u MYT end up livn ur dream…
if u hav a brain….

but yeh rob in kris are awsum… and cant wait 4 new moon or the other movies 2 cum…


June 18th, 2009 at 2:33 pm

Hey, i dont think that kristen stewart played bella too bad but she hast to work on her facial expressions ( they were quite the same at some points). But what i really find unfair is that her father is television producer for fox which shows again that if you really want to achieve sth in acting you have to have the right connections. I am acting myself and i know that there are sooo many good actors and actresses which would have fitted into her role and be talented aswell! well to come to an end you just have accept that this is life, not all of us have the same possibilties and that not even america lives the american dream always . By the way sry for my bad english but iam not a native speaker.

September 4th, 2009 at 10:59 am

Really? you guys are really stupid. Yeah Kristen isn’t the greatest actress, but she’s better than you guys and she fits well in my eyes. Robert Pattinson can’t act, he has no real emotion, and yes i know in the books he really doesn’t have much emotion, but when you’re upset about something, make a different kind of face than looking constipated. It’s retarded. I think whether you like the characters or not, it’s out of your hands, so if you don’t like it then don’t watch it. seriously. stop acting immature.


September 9th, 2009 at 9:51 am

agree with everyone who thinks she fits the role. I mean come on. Kristen nailed the part of Bella and you all are just selfish! If you read the book which I’m sure most of you have, then you know bella is very insecure of herself and she isnt and open person she is very close mineded. And kristen seriously did an amazing job at playing that role. At times i think she could have done a tad bit better but she played the role just as most pictured Bella to be like.


October 10th, 2009 at 12:53 pm

kristen stewart fits the character perfectly because her hair


October 24th, 2009 at 9:27 am

I think kristen its a brilliant actor, i think Bella is one of the most complicated person ive ever read about, and has alot of emotions and kristen does it perfectly, i think some actors would find it difficult to play bella, and when you read the books you picture kristen now as bella, i dont think anyone should slate her, shes doing great:)
cant wait for the new film, YAYA!


December 26th, 2009 at 11:43 am

ok so i think Kristen stewart can act but i think that she stutters sometimes when she produces the lines… but i also think Kristen is a GREAT Bella


March 23rd, 2010 at 4:01 pm

i think kristen stwart good at acting and shes my favorite girl person on there but roberts pattinson is the best out of all of them thinking about it i like all of them i chose vampire how about you guys which one vampire or werewolf

persnoally i think bella a edward do suit eachother. I mean before i was jelouse because everytime bella used to kiss edward i was sitting there just wishing i was her. But now i know im never gonna get him. Whats the point of you trying girls he will never be yourzzz. 🙁


July 30th, 2010 at 12:40 pm

Personally I do’t think any of u’s would have th guts to do what she does she its the role perfectly well and whos to jdgesome one elses work if she wasn’t good enough to be bella why would the professionals have chosen her get a grip don’t judge a book by it’s cover and if you played bella I bet you wouldn’t be half as good as her so just leave her alone all the actors and actresses are awesome. I watched twilight eclipse in the cinemas and was not happy they hurt my jacob and edward is so understanding he is babe i love him hs mine xxx


September 14th, 2010 at 11:59 pm

I agree with number 7. and Kristen’s the one who picked Rob as Edward.

no Anonymous u are wrong!! Kirsten Stewart never took any acting classes at all. So, I’m not saying she was a bad actress, but she did not fit the role of Bella even though she tends to be socially awkward and clumsy. I feel like they could of found some other random person, they probably would have done better than her. I mean if you really try and look at the films, she has the same facial expression throughout all four films…


February 21st, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Ok, I read the books over and over again and i can tell you Kristen did not do good at playing Bella. She did have some good parts but most of her acting sucked. Why do you think rob and Taylor are getting so many more acting gigs then she is now, cause they are better actors. And also for that girl who said she did better then any of you, how do you know if you never even seen some of these people act. And sadly some people don’t even really have to act to play Bella, I am talking from the books. I am the same type of person Bella is minus faling in love with a vampire (lol), my whole life. Old soul, keeps to herself and very insecure. Like my friends and people in my town said they could have wroten bella off of me minus my blue eyes. And there are plenty of other girls like that who coupld have done a better bella. I am pretty sure there are girls on here who could have done a better bella.


April 12th, 2012 at 4:37 pm

She is amazin i hate when people say she is bad when she is like the best actress in the world, yeeea dena u r rite nobody can make judgements to Kirsten when u couldn’t do a better job yourself. Why would the director pick her if she woesnt good, well ofcourse he did because she is amazing. Learn how to write guys. I totally agree with Dena i am sure if u actully watched the film you would see how professional she actully is so DON’T judge people she is a good actress so yeea. It would be better if u watched the film.
