A few days ago I wrote an essay on my personal blog called “Why Kristen Stewart Matters,” about the way the actress is presented in the press and why I think she’s a role model for women and girls. So many fans responded positively (wow!) and asked that I tell Kristen how she much inspires them. Because I’m a woman of my word, I did just that at the Breaking Dawn press conference yesterday afternoon. She knows, you guys, she knows! I also asked her if she had processed the important role she plays in the lives of her fans. Her response, which was adorably rambling and wonderfully KStew-esque, is as follows.
“I love that. That’s … it’s really hard to, it’s hard to, I don’t, um, I hate when people say, ‘What advice do you want to give your fans?’ But just to share … Oh god, I don’t even know how to explain this. People that I look up to, you find people in life that are your common, like, ‘Yeah, I’m like you.’ Everyone chooses differently. It’s just weird because this question always does sort of present: ‘So, why are you better?’ And I’m like literally the same, which is why it’s so cool. And I thank them too. The same reason they like me, I’m sure I’d like them, do you know what I mean? It’s like common ground. And because I’m like, placed on this pedestal, it looks like, ‘Wow, it’s so incredible that you can be this way,’ and it’s like, ‘Well, not really because this is so weird, trust me….there’s really no difference.”
She finished by adding: “It is hot in here.” KStew fans, what do you think of her answer? How does Kristen inspire you in your life? Tell us, and we’ll keep telling her!

Kristen Stewart‘s gorgeous mug made it onto four different magazine covers this past month, each with an entirely different look. Glamour gave us girl-next-door Kristen, W won us over with gothic, ’60s-inspired glam, GQ U.K. was an homage to Old Hollywood style and Glamour U.K.’s shoot was edgy and electric, with a rock-and-roll feel. Asking you to pick a favorite is like the Sophie’s Choice of magazine covers, but we have to do it. Yes, they are all stunning and so very different, but surely there’s one that you love just a little more than the rest. Go on, vote in our poll below the jump. Because really, any cover with Kristen on it is a winner in our eyes.
Robert Pattinson arrived back in Los Angeles this afternoon after finishing up a very busy week across the Atlantic promoting The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 with co-star Ashley Greene. We couldn’t help but notice that he was pushing a cart stacked with three enormous suitcases, luggage that he didn’t seem to have in tow with him when he departed for Europe last week. Hmmmm. Did he take a brief detour to London and grab girlfriend Kristen Stewart‘s stuff to bring home to L.A.? Did he cruise through the Netherlands and grab ALL the Heinekens? Did he smuggle Bear the dog (and Jella the cat, and a member of the Brit Pack) through customs? We take a stab at some guesses below — add yours in the comments!
Well, what have we here? A new Breaking Dawn trailer!? (Peep the first BD trailer here.) Don’t mind if we do! Fandango‘s got the exclusive first look, and we counted a few new moments form the movie jam-packed into the 30-second clip. Let’s review what’s new below, and feel free to tell us if we’ve missed anything, fellow fangirls. We’re counting on you!
1) :01-:05 — A new Edward and Bella interaction! Edward: “It’s not too late to change your mind.” Bella: “I know I can do this.” Eddie C.: “I’ll meet you at the altar.” Audience: “SWOON!”
2) :12 — A little bit more headboard breaking action! Like .25 of a second more, but we’ll take all the Robert Pattinson rippling back muscles we can get.
3) :14 — A shot of some pretty mountains. Very Lord of the Rings-esque, dontcha think?
4) :20-:24 — Wolves snarling atop some pretty mountains. The most realistic looking Wolf Pack yet?
5) :25 — A magical marriage moment between Edward and Bella: “Well, what’s a wedding without some drama?” Allow us to dork out for a minute here. How hot does Edward sound saying this? All confident and cocky and mature. A bit different from the sullen (yet still sexy) and introverted Edward of the Twilight days of yesteryear. Seems like the vamp hunk (and, dare we say, the actor who plays him) has grown into a strapping, self-assured young man who looks damn fine in a suit.
Kristen Stewart took some time off from filming Snow White and the Huntsman to step out at the Mulberry 2012 fashion show in London last night. In typical K-Stew style, she switched her attire from a sexy short skirt to an autumnal woolen cardie as the show went on. But the biggest change was her long dark tresses, which seemed dyed from her usual chestnut brown to jet black. Very goth! Or at least as goth as someone can look while standing next to a giant ice cream cone and watermelon beach balls. Regardless, we’re diggin’ the new ‘do. Check out more of Kristen’s London fashion tour (with special guest Kate Moss) in the gallery below!

Everybody’s putting a ring on it these days! First Britney Spears stepped out yesterday with a veryyyy engagement-y ring, and now prepare yourself for a double dose of the romantic rock. Twilight’s Nikki Reed was spotted strolling with American Idol beau Paul McDonald today sporting matching gold bands! Did the couple give the press the slip and tie the knot in a secret ceremony? They met in March and became engaged just a few short months later, so a speedy union wouldn’t be completely out of character. We can’t say for certain whether or not the two did the deed, but the new bling and adorable hand-play seem to suggest yes. Congrats guys! Check out more in the gallery below!

VH1 caught up with Elizabeth Reaser yesterday at the Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2012 fashion show. Despite looking fierce in a Rebecca Minkoff ensemble, the Twilight star verbalized her NY Fashion Week anxieties and her excitement over attending her very first fashion show this week. However, it wasn’t all fashion talk with
Esme Cullen Elizabeth. Watch the video above and see how she feels about the Twilight Saga coming to an end and what she’ll miss the most.
Here she is: the 2011 FABlife Bikini Awards Queen, Kristen Stewart! Yes, the darling KStew was the overwhelming winner, beating out second runner up Selena Gomez by over 5000 votes. While Kristen may not flaunt her body on beaches like some of our other contestants, she was spotted sporting a bikini or two while shooting Breaking Dawn this year, and boy, did she deliver. Svelte and sexy — that’s our KStew! Check out some of her skin-baring looks in the gallery below.

The FABLife’s super crush on Robert Pattinson got a little stronger today with this news of his sweet deed on the streets of LA. As R-Patz strolled down the sidewalk, he noticed a homeless street musician playing a busted up acoustic guitar. After putting some cash into the man’s collection cup, Rob, a well known music lover, ventured into a nearby music shop. A few minutes later he emerged carrying an electric guitar for himself, and a brand new six string which he handed to the street musician.
The random act of kindness was witnessed by two British tourists. “Robert quickly went back to his car and drove off,” one told Britain’s Sun newspaper. “We were gobsmacked when he handed the acoustic guitar to the tramp.” So was the musician, who couldn’t quite believe that this all was for real. “”The busker was totally shell-shocked. He had no idea who Robert was. I think he thought the guitar was stolen.” If this story of The Vamp and the Tramp doesn’t warm your heart, then check your pulse because you might be legally dead. Yes, like a vampire.

Look, we’ve been known to let out a chuckle or two while watching the Twilight movies (in between our non-stop squealing, obviously). You know, there’s Jacob’s dream-catcher, and the wolf pack’s jorts, and Bella’s Eclipse wig and all the serious staring. But there shall be no giggling come November, when we sit in the theater with one hand in some popcorn and another hand firmly planted on a box of tissues. This screen shot from Breaking Dawn: Part 1 confirms our destiny: we will cry.
Maybe it’s Charlie — in a tux! — staring so earnestly at Bella as she prepares for her wedding day. Perhaps it is Renee squeezing back tears as she stands next to her ex-husband and remembers her own nuptials, or Bella’s serene face in the midst of the madness. (Love that they went with a braided up-do a la Kristen Stewart at the NYC Eclipse premiere!) It could be the fact that Kristen has talked so candidly about how emotional and important the wedding shoot was for her that makes us turn to mush. Chances are all these things will join forces with our tear ducts and cause us to blubber non-stop as Bella walks down the aisle to Edward.
We’ll just have to dry our eyes by watching some good ol’ fashioned Brazilian island sex.
