Kristen Stewart Does ‘Teen Vogue’ Magazine


Kristen Stewart, the star of the much-anticipated movie Twilight, is featured on the cover of the December/January issue of Teen Vogue magazine (on sale November 18) all by her lonesome. Not sharing the coverspot with any of her Twilight co-stars, Kristen is featured alone. Here is her coverphoto and a portions of her Teen Vogue coverstory interview:

Kristen Stewart’s TEEN VOGUE cover shoot took place by the beach in sunny Malibu, California – a far cry from the dreary coastal city of Portland, Oregon, where most of the actress’s latest project, the dark thriller Twilight, was filmed. Kristen snagged the leading role after a four-hour audition with indie director Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown). And after almost a decade in the business – including a series of impressive roles in films such as Panic Room with Jodie Foster, Into the Wild the Emile Hirsch and the indie film In the Land of Women – she finally has a project that might just prove to be her first bona fide blockbuster. Twilight is the hotly anticipated adaptation of author Stephanie Meyer’s smash-hit debut novel – all four titles in the now-complete series continue to be best sellers – but before Kristen got the script she had never even heard of the books. “I guess I was just living under rocks and mountains,” she says cheerfully. “And though we were warned, I figured it would be a pretty exclusive fan base. I thought we were making a cult movie; I had no idea it was going to be this, like, phenomenon.” Despite having Kristen’s merits debated on Internet message boards before she had even shot a frame of film, she is almost improbably perfect to play the part of Bella Swan, a recently relocated high school junior who falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson. “Bella’s a very relatable girl,” says Kristen. “She inhabits qualities that most girls have, even if it’s not on the surface.” Physically, Kristen works: she is capable of being both slightly plain (as Bella feels) and impossibly beautiful (as Edward sees her). “What I love about the story and what puts it on a different level is that it’s ‘chemical’ … there’s nobody else for either of them. Period.” The romance, which Kristen describes as “unworldly but not fake,” was a big draw. She did, on occasion, draw from her own romantic life – she’s been with boyfriend Michael Angarano “forever” as she puts it. Kristen lived in an apartment on her own for the first time while shooting Twilight. “You are an insane person after you wrap a movie!”, she says. “Especially with Twilight. You spend three and a half months living the story. We all had one main goal, we were all equally invested and focused – it was just a very intertwined experience.” What about Kristen’s take on fashion? “If I’m just chilling out, then people can see me any which way, but it’s different when you’re putting yourself together to do something professionally,” she says. “You’re under a lot of scrutiny,” she admits. “It’s a bizarre thing, to me, to consider that what I wear or what I do with my hair, can affect my career.” But Kristen respects the process and takes it in stride. “I’m not the type of person who has a million things in my closet to put together, so I’ve begun to work with a stylist and we’ve started to figure out what I like. Simple, classically pretty things; I love Chanel.”

Truth be told, I’m not too crazy with this coverphoto but I do like the way she comes across in this Teen Vogue interview. I was unaware that I had previously seen Kristen in other movies (Panic Room, Into the Wild) and now have a better context to see her in. While reading the books, I never had a particular image of Bella Swan in my head but I suppose now that she has a face in Kristen Stewart, I can see how she might make a good Bella. I imagine there are many fans of the books that have a different image of Bella in their minds (mebbe an image that closely resembles what they look like) so we’ll have to see how those folks take to Kristen’s portrayal of Bella Swan when the movie opens on November 21. The interview gets a thumbs up from me … the coverphoto, not so much. Am I wrong … do any of y’all like the pic?

    truly a horrible picture! she’s a pretty girl, but you can’t tell that from this picture. who did she piss off at teen vogue?

  • Catherine

    Can’t stand the picture. I like her as Bella, though. She looks very girl-next-door, which is a good thing. I did picture Bella to be very plain in ways, but at the same time pretty enough that all the boys at school wanted her.

  • Kerry

    Awful picture, she looks like a boy.

  • christine

    i’m sorry, idk if it’s the pic or not but she is not attractive-at all

  • Kara

    Terrrrible picture

  • Totally agree. She looked far better in the Vanity Fair spread, but maybe this more realistic represention is a better image for the impressionable readers of Teen Vouge. I, however, enjoy her most when she appears with her hottie co-star Robert P.

  • nicole

    i’m not a fan of the picture.
    i remember seeing her for the first time in panic room and… honestly, i thought she was a boy at first. HAHA. =X
    but i think shes a perfect bella. the image i got of her in my head when reading the books is that she’s kinda awkward, plain and tomboyish… but strikingly beautiful at the same time… and i think that’s kristen to the T. she seems so laid back like the girl next door, but when dolled up is incredibly gorgeous.

  • Silvia

    Yeah, I agree. This is a TERRIBLE picture of her, she really does look like a boy in it. I mean, she can look really pretty– like in that Vanity Fair spread or even in normal times, she also looks older than she is– I would have never thought she was only 18. I actually just watched Into the Wild yesterday and I was impressed. I’ve always thought her as kind of a sullen girl, simply because she always looks like she’s in a bad mood in her interviews, but I think she might just make a good Bella.

  • Krystal

    I’m not gonna lie, I was shocked to see this as the cover, but I kinda like that she’s going all natural. Its totally Bella – which I can see her playing the role effortlessly. I can’t wait for this movie to come out, and I’m almost dying for her next book to be finished! Love the series & recommend it to ANYONE & EVERYONE!!! :)

  • Natalie

    this picture is so unattractive and I can’t understand how it would be appealing to teen girls. She looks like shes gone through chemo and hell and then was put in front of a beach for good measure. Maybe they were going for the emo look?

  • Nicola

    Boring. All this blog is lately is Britney and Twilight, it seems.

  • FK

    I like Kristen Stewart because of Into the Wild. I agree about the picture, and I must take issue with the description of one of the best cities in the world, Portland, Oregon as a “dreary coastal city.” I mean, yes, it rains a lot, but it’s a gorgeous city. If I weren’t living in NYC, I would probably live there.

  • It’s colorful! haha But it makes her look like a boy.



  • Sarah

    The picture is horrible, its a cover photo! and this is what they chose!?! come on even us “experts” wouldnt put a crappy photo like that on a magazine, she takes gorgeous pictures, especially high-end ones, why would they try to down play her so much? n what the hell! she doesnt even match. Shes a beautiful girl, why chose a sucky photo?

  • M

    I agree, she looks too boyish in the photo, but she is a beautiful lady.

  • Jaci

    You should see her in “Speak.” That was the first thing I saw her in, and I became a fan pretty quickly :D.

  • Val

    Portland, Or is neither a “dreary” or a “coastal city”. Since that’s my home town I’m a bit disappointed the author needs a fact checker.

  • g

    YAY!!!! MORRRRE TWILIGHT trent! I love it
    check out this site

  • Hoda

    Haha, she looks like a boy. Michael Angarano and her look cute together. I’m shocked the journalist didn’t list Speak as one of her important roles. She shined in that movie. I don’t want to speak too early (I think most of us did for Evan Rachel Wood) but she’ll be a phenomenal actor.

  • bella

    kristen gives a bad name to bellas everywhere… shes uggers yo

  • GiGi

    She looks much better in the other photos you’ve posted – this is pretty unflattering. I think they made here eyes look too pale and the short hair/pulled up hair thing isn’t working in her favor.

  • Joanne

    She looks fine (androgynous) but good. It’s the styling that’s all wrong!

  • wow horrible pic. sorry to say it but she looks really odd.

  • Chris

    She was excellent as the unrequited love interest in “Into the Wild” (Excellent movie if you haven’t seen it.) I think she’s got the chops to pull off Bella.

    Glad she’s getting a stylist, but I wouldn’t hire the one from Teen Vogue!

  • alejandro

    XD lol i dont realy like her and dont find her attractive in general, but when i first saw this i was like wow, finaly a nice picture and everyone here is hating it jajajaj :P
    we’ll i guess it IS cuz she looks like a boy ;)
    but nonetheless i find androgeny very hot :D

  • Brittny

    WTF…last time I checked Portland Oregon wasn’t a coastal city, and its far from dreary. Whoever wrote this is a complete jackass. Its actually a really upbeat and vibrant city, one of my most favorite cities to visit! Family lives there. And Kristin Stewart looks fugly here. Way fug. So apparently the people at Teen Vogue have shitty writers and could care less about how young actresses look on the cover of the mag. What a joke.
