Kristen Stewart's role as Princess Diana in Spencer may have received lots of attention and even Oscar buzz. But still, to this day, the actress is arguably most recognized for her character Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga - especially since the notorious 2000's movies have re-surfaced in popularity this past year. Here's what Stewart had to say about it.
Ever since Netflix put all 5 movies of the Saga on their website for users to stream, fans remembered just how much they loved the films when they were first released in 2008. There was even a Twitter account made in 2021 named 'Twilight Renaissance.' With nearly 75 thousand followers (and counting), the page focuses on "bringing you the twilight content you crave in 2022." The account makes sure to give both old and new fans funny memes and edits.

The lead actress of all the Twilight movies, Stewart, was recently asked about how she felt about the reemergence during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. The 31-year old responded, "I had no idea, [but] it's great!" She explained, "I saw that it was on Netflix… like, it was on there while I was looking through." Stewart went on to discuss how in shock she was at how much time had passed since Twilight hit theaters: "Dude, it's weird because it feels incredibly far away and also still not that far away from me and my time in this film." The last movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 was released in 2012, meaning it has officially been an entire decade. Kristen went on: "On one hand, you're like, 'Oh, I'm old, my God, I did this five minutes ago. And now it's like, 10-year anniversary.'"
Stewart was then asked what her younger self would think if she could see how successful she's become in Hollywood. "I wasn't the little kid that desperately wanted to be an actress, but I wanted to make movies so bad, it's where I always wanted to be - a movie set," she gushed. "And that is what I've done, I couldn't have written it better myself. I just feel surreal gratitude for that."
