"The Twilight Saga: New Moon" star Kristen Stewart spoke to Ryan Seacrest, the host of "On Air with Ryan Seacrest," about playing Bella. Here is what she had to say.
"I so see why they are obsessed," she says of fans of the "Twilight" franchise. "It is so weird to get the question: What is it like to be such an icon? I am not an icon. I am playing a character that is an icon. I really like her and love her. I think she is a good representation for these chicks."
Kristen goes on to explain what it is about Bella that she likes: " think she has an undeniable presence that every single girl has. It is innately female, even if you are weird, a little awkward and self-deprecating. Bella very much owns the fact that she is different. She makes a lot of mistakes that she owns as well. She is not ashamed of herself and I think that is pretty cool."
Once all the furor is over for the release of the second movie in the saga, Kristen tells Ryan, "I just want to sit with my cat."
'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' opens in theaters on Friday, Nov. 20.
