This afternoon’s entry in our annals of Breaking Dawn Superfan Week salutes is a three-for-one special! Jess, April and Ashley run KStewartNews.com, a beautifully designed hub for all of Kristen Stewart‘s interviews, photos and movie news. While they’re lucky enough to run a site that will likely have plenty more to do long after Breaking Dawn Part 2 leaves theaters, they’re serious Twilighters too. Here’s what they have to say about the franchise that launched their girl into superstardom.
TheFABlife: When did you first fall in love with Twilight?
Jess: I fell in love with the story after reading the first book. I feel in love with the films after seeing Rob and Kristen’s amazing chemistry and how well they brought Edward and Bella to life.
April: During Twilight promo, some chap named Robert Pattinson came to a Philly mall, and it was ALL over the local news — pandemonium! It piqued my interest and made me curious as to what the excitement was about. I picked up the books and have been hooked ever since. Then, I saw Kristen and Rob onscreen together, and I was a goner.
Ashley: Late January 2009 my sister and I had a hard time deciding on a movie to see and settled on Twilight. Call it love at first sight. I literally got in my car and bought New Moon immediately. Kristen and Rob hooked me.
TFL: What’s the moment you can’t wait to see in Breaking Dawn (1 or 2)?
Jess: I am gonna be captain obvious here and say the wedding, honeymoon and vampire Bella. We have been waiting all these years to see Bella as a vamp. I think Kristen is gonna kill it!
April: Don’t make me choose! I guess the honeymoon. It’ll be nice to see Mr. and Mrs. Cullen so happy.
Ashley: Honeymoon would be my first, but seeing Kristen as a crazy, protective, “tiger mom” ranks pretty high too.
TFL: How many times have you read the books? How many times have you seen the previous movies?
Jess: I’ve read the books a few times each. Watched Twilight way too many times to count, New Moon maybe four times, Eclipse (with commentary) endless amounts.
April: I can’t even count how many times I’ve read the books, but it’s been awhile. I’ve watched Twilight enough that I’m on my second DVD
Ashley: I read them several times each when I first discovered them, but it’s been a really long time now. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen Twilight. New Moon probably a good amount. Eclipse maybe handful of times, I listen to the commentary on my iPod instead.
TFL: How many times do you plan on seeing Breaking Dawn Part 1?
Jess: I usually average three visits per film.
April: I’m with Jess. Probably three times
Ashley: Three or four times, depending on who wants to see it.
TFL: What will you do after you’ve seen it that many times?
Jess: Hopefully find new things I like about it each time. Compare favorite moments. Gush like a 13-year-old girl. You know, the usual.
April: Gab with my gal pals about our favorite parts, the parts that make us awww and the parts that make us laugh inappropriately.
Ashley: Discuss everything in so much detail you would think we were solving world peace.
TFL: What will you do after the final movie is out?
Jess: It will be bittersweet to see it all end, but I will continue to support Kristen and her career and look forward to seeing what the future holds for her.
April: +1 on Jess’ answer. Can’t wait to see what the future holds in store, professionally speaking, for Kristen as well as Rob.
Ashley: In agreement with my counterparts, can’t wait to see what’s next for them.
TFL: Have you ever felt this way about any other book/movie/person/thing?
Jess: I have never been this drawn into a book series. I was pretty obsessed with Sex and the City and those characters. And I adore Brad and Angie as far as celebrities go. But I have never felt so passionate to put in the time and work I do “for” Kristen.
April: I’ve always been a huge Buffy fan, so that was my first pop-culture obsession.
Ashley: I was pretty obsessed with Hanson when I younger. Harry Potter was a big part of my life as well, but this takes the cake easily.
TFL: Do you think anything will ever take Twilight‘s place for you?
Jess: Twilight holds a very special place in my heart so I can’t imagine anything else taking its place. Though after seeing that amazing Snow White and the Huntsman trailer, I may have second thoughts.
April: I don’t think anything will bring this much community in my life. And man, I wouldn’t have any time!
Ashley: Nope. Everything we built is too special to be replaced.
TFL: Will anything ever become the phenomenon that Twilight has? What?
Jess: I think there is always gonna be some “phenomenon” going on in pop culture. But I think Stephenie Meyer, the cast and everyone who has worked on the films have done a great job of making it unique. Plus chemistry like Rob and Kristen’s is a very rare, special thing.
April: I’d like to think that this is unique, but every generation has its own Twilight-esque phenom. I, for one, am really excited for The Hunger Games films. But, there is only one Kristen Stewart. And only one chemistry duo of Kristen and Rob.
Ashley: Something will always come along to grab the world’s attention, but I like to think there is something so special about this cast and story that nothing will compare to it.
TFL: Do you think Stephenie Meyer should do a spin-off series? On which character?
Jess: Definitely not. I am a big believer in leaving people wanting more vs. having people wish you would just go away.
TFL: Twilight tattoos: yea or nay?
Jess: For me, personally, tattoos are a big nay, but hey, if people feel that passionately about it then I say go for it!
April: Only if it washes off with baby oil.
Ashley: Tattoos: yea, Twilight tattoos: nay.
TFL: How has Twilight changed your life?
Jess: I have met SO many amazing people because of Twilight/Kristen. Including the two fabulous girls who help me with KSN. I found my friendship soul mates because of it. (Gag, I know!)
April: It’s been the ultimate not-so-guilty-pleasure! And, it’s introduced me to two of my closest friends ever (see above and below me! *wink*).
Ashley: So cliche but it brought me the most amazing people, the two above and many more. I feel blessed that a simple story brought me my best friends.
TFL: Favorite line from the book/movie?
Jess: My book fave will always be Edward saying to Bella in Twilight, “Do I dazzle you?” I am forever saddened that it wasn’t put it the film. My movie fave is probably from New Moon, when Bella says, “Don’t make me choose, because it will be him. It’s always been him.” Mostly because I know that gutted Jacob, ha-ha.
April: “It’s time!” But that’s because it is my greatest pet peeve. Alice should have said it BEFORE the thunder/lightening. SHE CAN SEE THE FUTURE! /rant. Well, that one and, “I was standing right next to you, Bella,” because I love Rob’s delivery.
Ashley: My favorite line is also my favorite scene from Twilight, when Bella and Edward “go public.” Edward says, “Breaking all the rules now anyway, since I’m going to hell.”
