It’s been awhile since Kristen Stewart has paid a visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, as DeGeneres herself pointed out when Stewart made her first appearance on the show in five years.
In fact, DeGeneres reminds Stewart that the last time she dropped by she was accompanied by her “Twilight” co-stars, which brings back a flood of memories about the blockbusters vampire franchise.
After seeing some photos from her previous appearance, asks DeGeneres, what springs to mind for the actress? “Really uncomfortable hair extensions?” she jokes. “I look at those photos and I feel like I’m looking at a college yearbook. It was just after my high school experience would have been so it feels like just after. I don’t jump right back into those memories, but as soon as you see a picture you’re just, ‘Oh god, it’s like yesterday.’”
Stewart also opens up about the life-changing fame from the role of Bella Swan, admitting that the intense fandom surrounding “Twilight” was tough to handle.
“It was something I really invested in,” she says. “It mattered to so many people. Something personal became not the most personal thing, which is awesome because to share that is great, but at the same time I was 17 or 18 when it all kind of went down and that’s the most uncomfortable, terrible, weird… You’re 17-years-old and like ahhh. But at the same time, it was good. It kind of forced me to stand at attention in this way.”
