Here’s How Much Kristen Stewart Has Changed Since Twilight

Kristen Stewart has come a long way since her days of playing Bella Swan in the Twilight films. While the role surged her career forward, she has played a variety of roles since the final film was released back in 2012.

Twilight is making news headlines again, years later, because Stephanie Meyer announced that she is releasing another book in the series called Midnight Sun. Because of the recent news, fans are recalling their Edward and Bella obsession from their teen years with either fondness or embarrassment, depending on the person.

Stewart has made quite a name for herself in Hollywood aside from those films. From biopics to major action flicks, she’s acted in a multitude of different genres. Her style has also changed quite drastically over the years. Bella has certainly grown up. Here are 15 Photos Showing How Much Kristen Stewart Has Changed Since Twilight.

15 An Edgier Look

Bella was supposed to look innocent and fairly plain, but that’s not how Stewart rolls anymore. She cut off her long brown locks long ago and has experimented with different lengths and colors.

She’s considered a rebellious dresser now and never looks the same as anyone else. She’s always mixing up her style.

14 Joan Jett

One of the first roles Stewart chose after the first Twilight film was in the movie The Runaways. She played rockstar Joan Jett alongside Dakota Fanning, who played Cherie Currie.

It was a drastically different role than Bella. She had an edgy, jet black punk haircut and a much more rebellious attitude.

13 Underwater

Stewart recently starred in an action film called Underwater. The movie didn’t do great at the box office, but the actor is definitely trying to break back out into mainstream movies again. 

She shaved her head and dyed it blonde, which is a much different look than usual. After successfully appearing in art-house films, her return to big action movies has been rocky.

12 Snow White

Snow White and the Huntsman came out the same year as Breaking Dawn: Part 2, as Stewart tried to break away from Bella Swan.

Her attempt at a new type of role just showed a similar style of apathetic acting to what she did in Twilight, but it was a start in a new direction.

11 Blondes Have More Fun

For a long time, Stewart rocked her natural, long brown waves, but she’s experimented with a lot of hairstyles since then.

Her short, blonde hair is one of her most iconic looks. Her edgy, dark makeup is quite a contrast to her bright, bleached hair.

10 Saturday Night Live

Stewart has hosted Saturday Night Live multiple times since her time in the Twilight movies.

She has definitely broken out of her shell in the past decade and wasn’t afraid to tell the world who she is during one of her times hosting.

Charlie’s Angels

Stewart has been trying her hand at action films as of late, including starring in the new Charlie’s Angels movie this past year.

The movie didn’t do nearly as well as people hoped, but it showed another side of Stewart completely separate from Twilight, pushing her career further away from roles similar to Bella.

Channeling Hayley Williams

Stewart showed fans her punk rock side during a Saturday Night Live skit where she channeled her inner Hayley Williams.

The Paramore singer saw the skit and thought it was hilarious. It showed a funnier side of Stewart that people don’t always get to see.

Seberg

Stewart took on a more controversial role in the movie Seberg. This is a far more political film than any others she had previously starred in.

She plays an actress who gets into trouble with the FBI because of her involvement in the civil rights movement and her romantic relationship with a Black Panther activist.

Tattoos

When Stewart was in Twilight, Bella was supposed to be innocent and plain. Since then, Stewart has become more rebellious with her style.

She has multiple tattoos on her arms and hands. It’s unlikely those would have worked with her character back during her vampire movie days.

Suited Up

When Stewart was in Twilight, Bella was supposed to be innocent and plain. Since then, Stewart has become more rebellious with her style.

She has multiple tattoos on her arms and hands. It’s unlikely those would have worked with her character back during her vampire movie days.

Pink Hair

Stewart has experimented with her hair quite a bit over the years. She changed the length and the color too many times to count.

For a while, she sported a bubblegum pink pixie cut. Her hairstyle proved that pink is just as punk as other colors.

Equals

Films about a dystopian future are all the rage, and Stewart has been a part of the hype. She starred in the film Equals alongside actor Nicholas Hoult.

They played two characters in a futuristic society that suppresses human emotions. If you show emotion, you are considered a threat and are taken out.

Camp X-Ray

In 2014, Stewart showed fans a new side of her as she played a soldier in the movie Camp X-Ray. Her character was an Army private assigned to be a guard at Guantanamo Bay.

She had never played a military role before and it was a completely different character than Bella Swan.

Dating Life

Back when Twilight was at the height of its popularity, Stewart was dating her co-star Robert Pattinson. They were the “it” couple of Hollywood.

Her dating life today is very different. She has dated both men and women and is currently in a relationship with screenwriter Dylan Meyer.
