Kristen Stewart delighted hundreds of fans, including the scores who had camped out days beforehand, as she walked the black carpet at the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1" in Los Angeles on Monday, November 14.
The film is the fourth installment of the hit vampire franchise, which has a loyal fan base that is mostly made up of teenage girls. Stewart, 21, plays Bella Swan, a mortal who falls in love with vampire Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson.
When asked what the crowd's anticipation for the movie does for her level of excitement, the actress told OnTheRedCarpet.com and other outlets: "I'm never going to be able to have the experience that most actors do the job for. It's a shared energy. It feels good with a director, it feels good with an actor or a writer. When you have it with this many people, you have to acknowledge that's not going to happen again. To be honest, it's the coolest thing ever."
"It is a different energy," she added. "These guys have all been here before."
Swan puts on a gorgeous wedding dress and marries Cullen, in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1." Her co-star Jackson Rathbone told OnTheRedCarpet.com in October that Stewart rendered him and their other co-stars breathless as she walked down the aisle while filming the scene.
"I was not that kid who sat drawing her wedding dress," Stewart said at the premiere, when asked about plans for her own future wedding. "It was very beautiful but it was so hers. I would think it's very strange for myself to have anything similar."
The actress turned heads at the event with her sheer, sequined, sleeveless indigo and black printed dress with a thigh-high split from J. Mendel's Spring 2012 collection (which main female star looked best at the premiere? Vote in our poll).
