Best known for the “Twilight” franchise, Stewart first followed her parents’ footsteps into Hollywood when she was just eight years old.Her first major movie role came in 2002’s “Panic Room,” alongside Jodie Foster.
She also joined forces with both Balenciaga and Chanel, and, following the “Twilight Saga’s” end, worked on “Camp X-Ray” and “The Clouds of Sils Maria,” “Still Alice,” “American Ultra,” “Equals,” “Café Society,” “Personal Shopper” and more.
Stewart racked up a number of wins for her role in “The Clouds of Sils Maria.” In addition to nabbing awards from the New York Film Critics Circle, the National Society of Film Critics, and the Boston Society of Film Critics, the actress won a César Award, France’s equivalent of an Oscar.
The film received mixed reviews, Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter praised Pattinson's performance, stating that "(he) makes you forget the white makeup and weird eye contact lenses – to focus on a character torn between his love for the human Bella (Stewart) and the knowledge that she'll have to let go of her beating heart if she's to stay with him forever." Will Lawrence of Empire Online praised the performance of three leads of the film by saying that "All three corners of the love triangle look sharper than before: the most accomplished actor, Stewart, still lip-biting, Lautner still pec-flexing, and Pattinson not fully shaking that fiery-eyed pout.
But all have grown into their roles, cutting loose in a film that (thankfully) sidesteps the melodrama of its prequels." Though the film received mixed reviews, some critics praised his performance.
She got her big break at 14 in the children’s action-comedy “Catch That Kid.” After a number of other big screen appearances, including the films “Zathura,” “The Messengers” and “In the Land of Women,” Stewart was cast as Bella Swan in the film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling young adult novel, “Twilight,” opposite Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
The film’s worldwide success turned Stewart into a global superstar, whose fame continued to rise with each of the subsequent installments, “New Moon,” “Eclipse,” “Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” and Breaking Dawn – Part 2.” Stewart began dating “Twilight” co-star Pattinson after meeting on the set of the film in 2008.
