31-year-old Kristen Stewart may be far from her days playing the teen love interest of a vampire, but she still remembers the role of Bella Swan in Twilight fondly. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight‘s Matt Cohen, Stewart said she was aware that the franchise was experiencing a resurgence amongst young people after getting added to Netflix’s streaming library.
“I saw that it’s on Netflix, and I was like, ‘Oh, it’s on Netflix,’ like it was on there while I was looking through,” she says. “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. I don’t know, like, on one hand you’re like, ‘Oh, I’m old, my God, I did this five minutes ago, now it’s like 10-year anniversary.’ I’m like, wow, I have to go to my high school anniversary already.”
She continued, “It’s rad, I don’t know, I haven’t really … that hasn’t touched me yet. I can’t wait for someone who’s 12 or 15 to suddenly think, like, it’s like when you’re little and you tell your parents how great Jimi Hendrix is or something — not to say that I’m remotely comparing my life to Jimi Hendrix — but you know what I mean where they’re like, ‘Dude, you don’t even know, it’s like, so sick.’ I do, I was in that.”
Stewart is being awarded at the Palm Springs International Film Awards for her performance as the late Princess Diana in Spencer. She told Cohen that playing Diana was pretty transformative.
“The most resounding takeaway that I have from making this movie was probably how big and how small I felt as her,” she says. “I’ve never felt so big and so small at the same time. And I don’t know, just to sort of be aware of there are certain impactful and, you know, touching people that exist and they’re sort of lightning in a bottle, one-in-a-million special, but their inner lives are maybe not sometimes what it feels like for everyone outside, do you know what I mean? You know, it’s like this woman was able to reach out and touch so many people and responsible for so much good in the world, a just sort of unyielding, unbelievable amount of goodness, but at the same time it’s just really nice to, you know, to fall into sort of wake of her dreamy nature.”
Stewart added that she thought of Diana as a “sort of artist.”
“She was so good at touching those outside of herself,” she said. “That is a certain talent and connection and that’s what we’re doing and I think all of that was just the coolest thing.”
Though she is promoting Spencer, Stewart is also spending a great deal of time planning a wedding with fiancée Dylan Meyer. The couple dated for two years before getting engaged in November. Stewart is keeping her plans for the event somewhat private.
“I don’t even know detail-wise, I don’t know how many traditions we’re going to follow,” she said. “But I know what I’m gonna wear, and I can’t tell you. Like, the whole thing, we kind of have to do the surprise thing.”
