Kristen Stewart is Bella in Twilight movie


It’s REALLY happening, Twilight fans. The movie is really in the works! The lead character of the series, Bella Swan, has been cast. Actress Kristen Stewart is Bella.

Stewart has starred in a lot of movies. Among them are Panic Room, Into the Land of Women, Zathura, Fierce People, Into the Wild. Her filmography looks pretty impressive.

Read the press release in Stephenie Meyer’s site. Check out Stewart’s pic in that announcement. I’m loving it! It’s set against greens too. Imagine it’s the Hoh Rainforest and she is BELLA.

And now we wait for Edward Cullen.

    I cant believe they cast Kirsten Stewart as bella! shes so f’n ugly and i cant see her having chemistry with Edward, whoever they cast for him. And you can tell that Stephenie’s pissed too from her comment – she’s just trying to sound like she’s happy

    Let’s see how she does in the film. :)

    she is an amazing and unique actress, she will be perfect as bella

    I can’t wait to see how she’ll handle the character!

    Yey! It’s really gonna happen!

    Even though I was really rooting for Aussie actress Emily Browning for the lead role, I must admit that Kristen Stewart as Isabella Swan won’t be that bad at all. She has that every girl quality that Bella possesses (as Stephenie Meyer described in the book) plus she has the acting chops. I’ve only seen Panic Room but she did good in that film!

    Now, for more important matters: the casting for EDWARD CULLEN!!!
    Hope they don’t screw it up!

    I’m really hoping they don’t cast some “pop” guy like Zac Ephron. Oh please no….

    she doesnt scream Bella for me. She looks like she can handle everything herself with out edwards help when Bella needs to look like she depends on him. And I agree, Stephenie was mad when she wrote the comment. You can tell by her use of words. Emily Browning would have been perfect ahhhhh well if they screw edward up 2 im going to be incredibly angry!

    Let’s see how she does in the actual film! :)

    i wonder who’s playing edward? do tell if you know already! hehe

    There are a few names cropping up but I think they’re all rumors! Once an official press release is published, I’ll let you know.

    well,i don’t think she is that perfect.i thought Stephenie said that bella has a heart-shaped face, i don’t think kristen stewart has one.

    Or full lips, but that’s nothing make-up can’t fix. I don’t know about the heart-shaped face though. Nevertheless, I think she’s pretty and emanates the raw solace Bella has. I can’t wait to see how she’ll interpret the role.

    I just found you tonight, fellow Twilight fans. :-)

    Haven’t read New Moon yet – because it’s always out of stock, argh! – and I can’t read Eclipse because I haven’t read New Moon.

    So now I’m contenting myself with the first chapter of Midnight Sun.

    I am SO into Edward. (sigh)

    I agree that Kristen Stewart is a good choice, although I was rooting for Emily as well.

    Right now the only actor I could think of – when I think of Edward Cullen – is Drew Fuller!

    I’ve been influenced by YouTube Twilight fans, especially by these vids:

    Those eyes can make me forget ANYTHING… :-)

    Hi Kitty! Thank you for the visit. It’s so great to meet another Twilight fan! I do hope you get to read New Moon and Eclipse soon. They’re both really wonderful reads! And thanks for the video leads! I always enjoy watching Twilight fanvids!

    can’t wait! the books were great…i’ve read the series
    hope i’m allowed to watch it but that would mean it would have to be PG cause i’m 13! DAMN!!!
    :) i’d love to see the movie hope it’s better than the books!

    I’m certain the movie will be PG since the readers of Twilight also reach those in their younger teens!

    Maybe you should give Kristen Stewart a chance. I’m sure that you probably didn’t think Emily Browning for the part of Bella. The studio just gave out her name as a POSSIBILITY and many people (like myself even) were desperate to find out who would play Bella. Since they gave her out as the first and only option, many people have stuck with it. Certainly not this big of a group of people can choose the same actress. I’m sure they wouldn’t have picked Kristen Stewart if they weren’t SURE and haven’t THOUGHT through it carefully enough. Bella is a fictionaly character and they can’t choose everyone’s exact picture of Bella but they’re trying awfully hard to come close. I guess you should see the movie before you judge if she would fit it or not. But that might prove difficult for some people because they might be biased. And also, I don’t know if Stephenie Meyer actually spoke the words aloud in an interview or some sort, but I only read her words from her site and I can’t actually judge from typed words if she is angry or not. Well, I’m just excited to see how the movie will come out. And instead of insulting it and saying it will be horrible, I will hope for it to come out well.

    Hi Anonymous. I personally do not have any problems with Kristen being cast as Bella. In fact, I do think she’s a good choice! Very good filmography, she’s got the look down, etc. I’m looking forward to how she will be portraying Bella. As for the others who are finding it difficult to accept that Kristen will be playing Bella, oh well, that’s something they should learn to accept and move on. Let’s put our differences aside and support the making of the film!

    I’m kind of irritated that they’re turning Twilight into a movie.

    I don’t think it will matter who they choose for the actors, they won’t ever do justice to book.

    Bella has so many thoughts and emotions that are just private, how are you supposed to portray those in a movie? I won’t ever see Twilight, because the movie won’t even hold a candlestick to the book and that will ruin the book for me.

    It’s always quite a scare when our favorite books get turned into movies! I am curious how they are going to present the film — still from Bella’s point of view perhaps? Or maybe they’ll take another spin. Whatever approach they choose, I hope they do it well. I think the book will still be immensely better no matter how good a job they will do, but I still am curious as to how they’ll do it! If it sucks though, I hope it doesn’t discourage non-readers to still read Twilight.

    kristen stewart isnt the first person who came to mind when i thought of an actress to bella, but she does have some of bella qualities! i actually thought of rachel hurd wood when i thought of bella, she looks like i pictured her! as for edward, im not sure there are los of nice looking guys, but edward is a hard one to picture when im readng the books! well, im sure they will do a great job picking out the characters for the up and coming movie…. i hope!

    Hi Paige! I googled Rachel Hurd Wood after reading your entry and YES! She does look like Bella! She would’ve been a good option too. I saw her in Peter Pan. While she was very young there, she already showed great acting range. And you’re right about Edward being difficult to cast. His character was set up so perfectly it’d be really hard to find a guy who can fulfill those Edward qualities. Ah, let’s see how he’s cast! I can’t wait to find out who’ll play him.

    OMG!!!! on IMDb message board there is this rumor that channing tatum is going to play edward, now i think he’s cute enough to play a jock in she’s the man and a dancer in step up, but i do not think he is cute enough to play edward! GOOD thing it’s no true, i hope! but there is someone else that was rumored to play edward on the message board that i do not think is cute at freakin all!!!! his name is tyler hoechlin, he’s martin on 7th heaven, and im not so sure that one is a rumor…. sad:( newho, i looked at a couple of pics of kristen stewart today, and shes not that bad…. i guess. i mean she doesnt look like bella’s description in the least, but to others she may! i wish drew fuller was a few years younger, because honestly he is the only one i can think of as edward, drew is beautiful! neway, hopefully we find out soon, and can only hope to not be disappointed!


    Channing Tatum? Noooooo. He’s Emmett to me!!!
    Tyler Hoechlin? *google google* Nooo. He has a Jacob-esque quality to him though. An Eclipse Jacob, that is.

    Well, those are just my opinions. 😀 Thank you so much for the updates, Paige! When will they finally tell us who Edward is, I wonder!!

    I heard that Henry Cavill will play Edward.
    Henry is Cedric Diggory from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
    He’s so SEXY!

    *crosses her fingers* I want Henry too!!!!!!!!!!

  19. paige
    December 7, 2007 at 8:34 am (16 years ago)

    i heard that they might let everyone know who edward is on friday, if not then this weekend! i so hope thats true, i like henry cavill’s really cut, but kinda old. i like him though, because th younger edward selections like tom sturridge looks really young, and i picturd him like an older type with a flawless face. well, hopefully this weekend they announce who edward is!

    Aaaack! It’s Friday here already!!!!!!!!!

    i really wanted emily browning or danielle panabaker to play Bella, because they have Bella’s qualities or at least what they are in the books. I’m not saying i don’t like Kristen Stewart its just that she seems so tough and able to take care of herself and Bella’s not. Bella is sort of vulnerable and im afraid risten might not pull it off. oh well we’ll just have to see

    Kristen has been playing strong-willed ladies in her movies, true. Let’s see how she interprets Bella. I can’t wait!

    Oooh! I hope you enjoy Eclipse!!! :)

    so edward has been picked, they got robert pattison from harry potter, he’s kinda cute i guess…. now that bella and edward have been picked i wanna know who is playing alice and jasper! im just happy they didnt get tyler hoechlin to play edward, he’s to old and and doesnt look mysterious to me, like i picture edward!

    Hi Paige! I’m also curious about who’s playing young Jacob!! :)

    December 15, 2007 at 1:17 am (16 years ago)

    So basically, as for Kristin not being able to play vulnerable Bella, HELLO?! anyone ever seen “Speak”(which is also a book-turned-movie). Kristin is an amazing actress and I’m sure she’ll do Bella justice. As for all the Edward suggestions, have any of you read the book?! Edward is supposed to look 17 and he’s definately NOT a brunette. All these guys you are suggesting have dark eyes and hair and look way to freakin old to be 17. Even though I’ll probably criticize the movie to bits, I still can not wait for the movie to come out. The Twilight Series is my favorite series of all time (and I’m a total Jacob Black fan), and I think it will be fun to sit down and watch someone else’s take on the book. If I don’t like it-tough-I can make my own movie in my head while I re-read the books for the zillionth time. A ton of movies are made into books, but this is one that definately deserves it.I can not wait to see who Edward is, even though I’m a total Jacob-drooler. I won’t be satisified until New Moon is a movie 😀
    Peace, love, and Twilight.

    Hi Brittany! I am so looking forward to getting a DVD of “Speak” so I can see how Kristen Stewart was in it.

    And hey, we’re both on Team Jacob. W000000t!

    I posted about Edward here: :) Yey for Robert Pattinson!!!

    CHANCE CRAWFORD can play edawrd

    Oh well, Robert Pattinson is THE Edward now!

    December 15, 2007 at 2:01 am (16 years ago)

    i wasnt suggesting that i thought robert pattison should play edward, go to stephenie’s home page, that’s who they got to play edward! summit entertainment announced it three days ago! and as for the whole thing about edward not looking like any of the suggestions anyone put out there, dont worry its hollywood, that’s what makeup and hair dye is for! im sure that they will make everyone they cast look just as they should! and under robert pattison’s pic on the bottom stehenie seemed to be very happy with who they got to play edward! i like kristen stewart, she is very young and already such a great actress, i think she will do bella justice also! ive never seen speak, when they announced who was going to be playing bella i went to see who kristen stewart was, and i read about the movie speak, it looked like something worth reading and watching. newho, robert pattison is the offical edward!

    I posted some pics of him here:

    Aaaah he’s sooooo purrfect!!!

  27. paige
    December 15, 2007 at 4:54 am (16 years ago)

    I am way excited, Kirsten Stewart is going to be freaking perfect for the part she is freakin gorgeous…this stupid Alexandra character who left a comment saying she is freakin ugly is just jealous cause she isn’t as pretty as Kirsten. Kirsten Stewart you totally rock!!

    December 16, 2007 at 9:44 am (16 years ago)

    The person who is going to play Edward is Robert Pattinson. If you don’t know who he is he was in Harry potter and the goblet of fire. At the end he is the one who dies. Not my favorite person for the role but I can get over it. It would have been really wierd if they found someone who looks like my Edward. As for Kristen Stewart I think she is a good choice for Bella. She is a really good actress and will do just fine.

    Robert Pattinson is ♥ !

    I’m sooooo beyond excited that the movie is happening! i just finished reading the series- it was so good im to reading it again!- the lead choices are perfect! people were saying that they wanted Hayden Christensen? No way! ugh!- Robert Pattinson is perfect and Kristen is perfect- ahh im so excited! lol

    They are both incredibly perfect for the roles. I can’t wait for the movie to come out!

  35. dissapointed
    December 21, 2007 at 6:55 am (16 years ago)

    OMG!!! Are you guys joking??? Robert Pattinson for the part of Edward. Edward is suppose to be this in-humanly beautiful guy who can make your heart melt with just one look… Ok i admitte that there isn’t anyone in the world that can fit the perfect description for Edward but im sure they can do sooo much better. When i thought of Edward i always kinda pictured Chance Crawford. I think he’s gorgouse and would fit the part of Edward pretty well. I just hope that the hair and make-up people can do a good job of at least making him look better. As for bella sure Kristen Stewart doesnt really fit her discription. She looks independent and like she can kick someones a** if anyone messes with her and bella is suppose to be gentel and delecate… Im a little disappointed but i guess i always knew that the book was gonna be better then the movie. But ima watch it regardless. i jus REALLY hope that the actors do a good job…

    They’re both good actors so even if they don’t look the part NOW, for sure they will be given workshops and makeovers to look like Meyer’s characters. Let’s see and hope they pull of our favorite characters. 😉

    who ever plays edward better be hot or i will be very depressed. I can’t wait to see the movie, but i almost don’t want to because I already have all of their pictures of the characters in my head and don’t want to be dissapointed. But, anyway, I hope its good!

    Let’s cross our fingers and hope for the best!

  41. Jodie
    January 1, 2008 at 8:07 am (16 years ago)

    Yeah Edward is going to be played by the guy who played Cedric Diggory. I really want to see the whole cast list. Not just Bella and Edward. And it’s such a good book im going to be depressed if they leave out too much.

    I’m excited about the rest of the cast as well, especially Jacob!

  42. marie
    January 2, 2008 at 3:26 am (16 years ago)

    I really don’t think kristen stewart would be a good bella. and the guy who’s playing edward isn’t right for that role. he’s too old and doesn’t fit as edward. sorry to ruin your hopes and dreams.

    Hmmm. We all have reservations, but let’s see how the actors hold up when the movie comes. Only 11 months to go!

    ^ Check out the Trailer for Twilight someone made!, not the real trailor of course :) but id have to say it was amazing for not being the real
    and i think Gaspard Ulliel in the trailer video would be the perfect Edward :]

    January 4, 2008 at 11:05 am (16 years ago)

    I think Kristen Stewarts will be perfect as Bella. She is a great actress! But I have to disagree with Robert Paterson as Edward. I just don’t see it, but I’m sure it will be a good movie anyways!
    I can’t wait! Can you all?

    Yey! I love Kristen Stewart for Bella too. Not everyone agrees though. 😀 Can’t wait to see the film either.

  46. Brooke
    January 5, 2008 at 10:44 am (16 years ago)

    Yes! It comes in October ’08!!!

    January 13, 2008 at 8:36 am (16 years ago)

    ahhhh i’m so excited for the movie!!
    but the actor for edward is that pattison dude who played cedric diggory in harry potter 4 and 5.
    that’s totally wrong but who knows what will happen….
    edwards supposed to be ‘beautiful’… that cedric diggory dude is not even close to okay… he’s farther down the road towards ugly beyond belief.
    i hope kristen stewarts can really pull this off…

    There are so many different opinions about these two that I can’t wiat to see how they will deliver on-screen!!

  48. Allie
    January 15, 2008 at 5:44 am (16 years ago)

    im so mad that kristen got the part. my best friend was going to be cast as bella but something came up. When she was going to play the part they had this really hot guy playing edward but when she said no they found that other guy.(hes not even that cute) i hope they can pull this off

    Your best friend? Wow. Maybe there are other movie opportunities for her then. :)

    I know who’s playing Edward, Robert Pattinson!!! He was the guy who played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter 4. I don’t think he’s good because he doesn’t have golden(or topaz) eyes and he doesn’t has bronze hair. I don’t think anyone can play as Edward.(MAYBE…)

    Robert Pattinson as Edward is absolutely perfect casting. He’s just beautiful. He’s got those great eyebrows that can make him look slightly dangerous if need be. I just watched Goblet of Fire (to refresh my memory) and he definitely looks like he could play a vampire. Trivial things like hair/eye color are no big deal (even though, in Goblet of Fire, his hair does look reddish-brown).

    Very chiseled looks, right? Perfect for playing a gorgeous vampire. 😉

    Check out disk 2 in Harry Potter Goblet of Fire. I enjoyed Robert Pattinson as Cedric Diggory in the movie – even better than the character that I loved in the book – brilliant job. The second disk gives cast interviews etc and you get a better idea of what he’s like. Super charming, great hair (bronzy from what I could tell), a great smile, great voice. I can totally see it. I think he will be perfect and wasn’ totally convinced initally….looking forward to it.

    Kristen Stewart will be great as well, though I think Pattinson’s performance will either make or break the movie. I think he’s up to the challenge.

    Excited to about the movie…

    Hi Kathy! I am super excited too. I can’t wait to see how they interpret Bella and Edward. True, both their performances will either extremely ire the fans or let them gain a solid following!

    i agree with dissapointed!!! Robert Pattinson is, in my opinion, not gorgeous, good looking, and mysterious at all!!! Edward is suppose to be gorgeous, the way bella describes him in the book!!! As for kristen stewart, she is perfect, better than Emily Browning! U rock kristen! Here are my ideas for the characters: edward- jackson rathbone, drew fuller, tom sturridge, logan lerman; jacob black- tyler posey: Carlisle- maybe hayden christensen; Alice- rachel leigh cook(she would be perfect!!!); emmett- daniel cudmore; laurent- ewan mcgregor; jaspar- trent ford; rosalie- gosh she better be pretty!!! she is hard to find. Maybe olivia wilde, but i doubt it she is as close as i can think.???? But i already think they ruined the part for edward!!! i am dissaponted!!! :(:(:(:(:(

    Awww let’s see how Robert Pattinson fares. Who knows? He might DAZZLE us! 😉

    I can’t wait for the movie! Not so sure about Bella but I’m sure they wouldn’t have picked her if they didn’t think she could do it so… hopefully all goes well there. As for Edward, what can I say that everyone doesn’t already know. He better be as perfect as he is in the book.

    At first I was a little disappointed in the pick for edward (Robert Pattinson) but after I watched the movie he played in (Harry Potter 4) and read the twilight series books over and over again, I finally accepted his image as edward as close as it gets to the image in my head of edward.

    As for bella, I think Kristen Stewart fits the part. I’ve seen most of her movies and I think her looks are close to the image of bella I have in my mind. I can’t wait for the movie to come out! And the fourth book to the twilight series (breaking dawn)!

    Hi Jacy! We are on the same page then. :) Shooting starts in February — I can’t wait till Dec. ’08! (And Fall for Breaking Dawn!)

    I heard they have cast Cam Gigandet as James :)!! but, have not heard of any other castings yet. I can’t believe they are taking so long….

    Really? I can’t wait for an official announcement!!!

    Since Edward is so hard to cast I think they did an ok job.Robert Pattinson kinda looks 17:/i’m a little dissapointed Emily Browning didn’t get casted for Bella but I think Kristan Stewart will do a good job. I’ll be checking the internet constantly now for the rest of the casting list. Now i just hope Rachel Leigh Cook gets the role for Alice! Can’t wait for December!

    I’m so curious about who’s playing the whole cullen family too! And of course, Jacob. 😀

    I personally really love the idea that Robert Pattinson will be playing Edward, because he’s absolutely adorable, and he really won me over with his role as Cedric Diggory. Although I really did want Henry Cavill to get it (sucks he’s too old), because he’s exactly how I pictured Edward to be when I first read the books. I think Kristen Stewart will be a great Bella, because although she may not look like ‘Bella’, she does fit the character well. I also really want Rachel Leigh Cook to be Alice, because she’s just so ‘Alice’.

    Yay for Robert Pattinson! I really look forward to seeing how they make him into ‘Edward’. It’s gonna take some killer contacts and some kind of hair dying genius (or a REALLY convincing wig haha). But I can so see him being the most gorgeous guy in Forks. =D

    Yipee! Another happy fan. Let’s support him!!!

    I never really liked the idea of Emily Browning as Bella, though. Although I would’ve liked to see her play the part, I think she has such unique and beautiful features that she wouldn’t be able to capture the ‘ordinary’ side of Bella very easily.

    Emily Browning is so pretty! Bella is ordinary, right? Kristen Stewart, while not really ordinary, can play down her beauty excellently. I’m basng this on the trailers of her other movies. So let’s see how she fares!

    hey i was just thinking that she would be perfect for the part

    She looks the part and acts pretty well so I hope she does justice to Bella!

    Hm…well personally i think Kristen Stewart is a pretty good choice. I’ve seen panic room, and a few of her other films; she defiantly can act. I was edging toward Emily Browning, because she had the entire look; but Kristen Stewart fits the description too. Than theres Robert Pattinson, whom i adored in Harry Potter, but came to consider his role in Twilight. After all, Edward is important! But when you think about it, – and consider this very carefully – he actually is right for the part. He has the jaw line, and cheek bones; and defiantly is gorgeous. You can color his hair if you must, and give him topaz/golden contacts to pull off those’s “edwardish eyes.” So, in my opinion he is a good choice.

    However, what puzzles me is the ACCENT; after all our Edward is from Chicago. I’m sure though, whoever considered Robert Pattinson did think of the accent. I’ve seen many actors who’ve been able to change their accent, so i’m sure he can too^^

    *Remember, Stephenie Meyer will be strict on casting too, so who ever is chosen to play will have to meet her expectations too. I, personally, am also looking forward to Carlisle, Jacob, and Jasper:)

    I think there was a mention that Robert Pattison did his audition with an American accent and he absolutely nailed it! 😉

    i think robert pattinson is perfect for edward!
    he is soooo cute!
    hes gorgeous.
    hes not photogenic though.
    & i think kristen is perfect for the part too!!

    Hi Jozel! It’s great that you’re agreeing with the casting. I’m sure they’ll do a splendid job.

    I can’t wait till this movie comes out! To all the nay sayers in regards to Robert Pattinson as Edward, I couldn’t disagree more…that man it utterly beautiful, and while I was iffy about Kristen Stewart being cast as Bella I am now a fan. I think these two could really pull it off. Kudos to the casting directors! Can’t wait to see who will be cast as Jacob, that will be a toughie…but those other two-namely Edward-….ahhhhh…just can’t wait. He’s perfection!

    Eric and Jessica have been cast as well!!! 😀 😀 😀 I can’t wait to see the rest of the casting!

    I cant belive they chose her over Emily. Emily is the person who should be playing Bella. There is no doubt that Kristen is a good actress but she looks nothing like bella and i dont think this part is right for her. She is more of an “adventure” actress. shes the one whos tough, Bella is fragile and i think that she shouls NOT play her. Give emily the roll, she deserves it. Emily is the true Bella.

    Did Emily audition? I wonder.

    ya, well i think Kristen Stewart is a lovely girl and will do amazingly well in “Twilight”… She fit s the part perfectly.. and is exactly how i pictured her. I actually saw her in a magazine once and i fell in love with her look. She had a great filmography and is a one of a kind actress. She will do well :)

    Hi Preston Lyn! Great! Let’s support Kristen Stewart. 😀

    The whole Cullen family has been anounced, you can check the Stephenie Meyer website to see their pictures in costume.

    I think that they did a ver good job picking actors. I can’t wait for the movie to come out!!!

    Yes! Me too!

    okay so i dont know why everyone has a big fuss about the actors and actresses they would not have picked them if they did not think that they were the best for the parts…personally i think that they will do great although they have some pretty big shoes to fill. for bella i think that kristen stewart is going to act it out very well but as for the looks i think that Emily would have been better but non the less kristen was a good choice. for edward i think that robert will do a good job as edward due to his past acting skills. and yes the accent will be a bit of a problem however i think that maybe the accent might put a little more of an interesting edge to the movie, and plus edward has been around for what 80 years dont you think that 80 years is long enough to learn how to put an accent on his vouice. maube that is what the directors are going for. well all-in-all i think they did an excellent job on casting the actors and actresses for the movie. here is a list of the other actors and actresses:
    Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Ashley Greene as Alice and Kellan Lutz as Emmett.

    I can’t wait for the movie to come out! W00t! Dec. 12!!!

    Well I personally hope that the Twilight movie sticks to the book. I positivly hate it when a movie based on a book is made and it doesn’t follow the book at all!! That just makes me so mad! Anyway… I don’t know why people are making such a fuss over the actors! I mean it is impossible to find an actor that looks exactly how you imagined the character to look!(especially when every one imagines a different face for any given character!) I think Kristen and Robert will do a spectacular job! But as I was looking at their offical pictures I noticed that the Cullens didn’t have golden eyes and that their skin wasn’t as white as it should be! I really hope that it was just the picture and that they look better in the actual movie! And what is this talk of Kristen being too “tough” to be Bella? Kristen has just portrayed a tough girl, that doesn’t mean she is one! And besides, have you met and spoken to her? I think not. So don’t make judgements about people you don’t even know! I also am reading complaints about Robert’s accent. As an actor I am sure he can act with an american accent! I have personally seen movies where a foriegn actor has faked an american accent! So it is not impossible so stop complaining! And on the subject of age..well Edward is nearly a hundred and ten years lod, so it makes sense for him to look older than seventeen.(even though he doesn’t age!) So stop giving Robert such a hard time! At least be happy that Kristen really is seventeen!

    Hi Claudia! I’m in total agreement with what you shared. I do hope the movie is faithful to the book. I do hope that fans stop giving the actors such a bad time and give them a chance instead to portray the characters.

    I don’t like her. I wish we could have a better choice.

    Kristen Stewart will make a perfect Bella. I wish I could have, lol, but I’m very happy with their choice. Robert Pattinson is beyond perfect for Edward and extremely happy they picked him. But the other actors are confirmed as rumos I really don’t want to see Nikki Reed in it. She looks like she has an attitude problem.

    I had an initial discomfort with Nikki Reed too! But oh well, that’s just me. I’m certain the casters saw something in her that’s why she’s playing Rosalie! Nice to meet another Twilight fan!

  71. Claudia
    March 2, 2008 at 1:42 am (16 years ago)

    I noticed that Rosalie has a bit of an attitude problem in the book so if Niki Reed has a bit of an attitude problem, she’ll be perfect for Rosalie!:-)

    Good point there!! 😉

    Ok..saw the pics for the Cullen family. I’m not really on board with Peter Facinelli playing Carlisle. Never really been a fan of his. Loved your pick for Carlisle…Simon Baker. He would have been perfect. Is the guy playing Jasper wearing a wig in the fam pic? He looks better in his press photos. He’s not as tall as I pictured Jasper. I did completely agree with Elizabeth Reaser being cast as Esme. She seems perfect for the character. The biggest disappointment I had was Alice. Alice is a major character in the book, and she has to be very special. They needed to pick someone who can capture Alice’s grace and “other-ness”. She is a singular girl. I kind of pictured a young Winona Ryder (I know, that’s asking waaaay too much!) I guess physically she fits the character (petite, pixie-like). We’ll just have to see. Still super excited about the movie!! Can’t wait.

    On Carlisle: I like Simon Baker because he’s so charming!! But yeah, he’s probably too old.
    On Jasper: I think that’s a wig!! I pictured Jasper to be hell tall because of his being in the army and all.
    On Alice: I like that Winona Ryder suggestion! That’s right! Perhaps if she were much younger, right? She does have a lot pixie-ness in her!

    Thanks for the visit, fellow Twilight fan!

    OMG i cant wait for the movie to come out!!! I think that Kristen Stuart is perfect for the part of Bella, though i could do way better, but i dont know that Robert Pattison was a total wrong choice for Edward. They could have found someone WAY cuter. Though, im glad they finally revealed Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black, hes pretty cute. I think that Jackson Rathbone was kinda cute, except for the hair. I think that Ashley Greene as Alice is perfect. Im also glad that Kellan Lutz is Emmett. All in all, i think that all the actors will work good.

    Honestly, Taylor Lautner is beginning to grow on me! I’ve been seeing more recent pics of him on the net and he’s not bad at all!

    Nice to meet another Twilight fan. Hello!

    i know they dont show edward on here but he is not how i thought he would look at all :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :((

    Aww really? Perhaps when you see him on-screen Robert Pattinson will change your mind.

  75. Sophia
    March 18, 2008 at 12:31 pm (16 years ago)

    Well for my opinion i think they should find someone else that look better than Robert Pattinson I guess Steven Strait can be Edward, thats just my opinion.

    And we respect opinons in here. 😉

  76. Claudia
    March 22, 2008 at 6:27 am (16 years ago)

    Well I must say Steven Strait would make a great Edward, but he looks a little old to be him. I mean, I’ve heard people complain about Robert’s age and I can only think that they’d go on and on about how Steven is too old. I think everyone will just have to accept that no living human could possibly live up to everyone’s expectations of what Edward should look and act like. So people, please, just save your complaints about the casting choices untill you’ve actually seen the movie!

    I agree! :) Great words, Claudia!

    i’m really glad that Robert is playing Edward, that’s who i’ve always thought of when i read the books. i think he’s gorgeous and i loved him as Cedric in Harry Potter. i don’t, however, like the boy who is playing jacob, come on, there are plenty of hotter guy out there .

    Fantastic!! I bet you can’t wait to see the film.

    Is it just me, or should edward be a lot hotter?

    I think he’s plenty hot now! 😛

    i really wish they would change the person who is playing jacob, i don’t like him at all :(

    Perhaps he’ll surprise us?
