Kristen Stewart: Leave Bella Swan alone, 'Breaking Dawn' will be awesome

October 19, 2010 |  5:00 pm

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson For those audacious enough to challenge the reign of Bella Swan, Kristen Stewart is here to tell you — she's about to get so much better.

Character Bella is "criticized sometimes for being, like, you know — I don't know, selfish and overly emotional and silly and frivolous and annoying and young,” Stewart told 24 Frames. "That’s sort of like a very judgmental way of looking at it."

So why should you give Robert Pattinson's on-screen love a shot?

"This one really goes there, finally ... this one is like the forming of a family. You see everything really come to fruition, because I feel like [Bella] has sort of gone through an accelerated growth period."

Growth indeed — "Breaking Dawn" sees a ton of development in Bella's world, like [spoiler alert] the birth of a half-human, half-vampire and transition to a "bloodsucker" like her baby daddy Edward Cullen. Rehearsal for Parts 1 and 2 of the closing "Twilight Saga" chapters are underway in Louisiana. 

Are you jazzed for "Breaking Dawn"? Tell us all your thoughts in the comments section below.
