Kristen Stewart Hollywood success 

Kristen first captured attention at the age of 8 after her performance in a grade school Christmas play. Shortly after that, she was reached out by a talent scout who cast her in a Disney movie called “The Thirteenth Year”.

At age 12, she landed a more substantial role in the independent feature “The Safety Objects” and “Panic Room,” where she shared the screen with Jared Leto, Forest Whitaker, and Jodie Foster. She was soon nominated for a Young Artist Award for her remarkable performances of playing as a tomboy daughter in both films.

Her career received a boost, and she started getting calls for many films thus, she started homeschooling because of her irregular schedules. Before getting her call for Twilight, in 2007, by Summit Entertainment, a movie based on the books of Stephanie Meyer, she played many remarkable characters that critics praised. Age 13, she played as a high school freshman who stopped speaking after being raped, in “Speak” (2004) and the New York Times mentioned her performance as a convincing character full of pain and turmoil and the Chicago Tribune noted that she portrayed a vivid sketch of the role that touched hearts of the audience. 

Success and accomplishments 

Kristen’s performance in Twilight was described as the ideal casting choice, and the movies ranked amongst the high grossing film franchises. She was also awarded the BAFTA Rising Star Award. In all, the Twilight movies earned more than $3 billion worldwide and helped Stewart continue her career in other box office successes, including “Snow White and the Huntsman” with Chris Hemswork, Camp X-Ray, and Clouds of Sils Maria.

In her recent film “Spencer” she played the role of Princess Diana. The movie takes place during the Royal Family’s Christmas holiday at Sandringham House in 1991, a breaking point in Diana’s marriage to the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles. Throughout the movie, Diana is mentally dressed up in gems; as a source of humiliation that Charles bought the same present for his wife and his mistress.

Kristen uses mystery and magnetism to push her styles of performance into Diana’s roles, she also imbues the character with a melodramatic hyperbole that takes her beyond historical depiction and, at times, into comedy. In early February 2022, Stewart earned her first Oscar Award for her heart-touching role in Spencer, at the 94th Annual Academy Awards. In her acceptance speech, Kristen got emotional as she never expected to win an Oscar when she accepted her role in the movie. Spencer has now made over $18 million in the worldwide Box Office.
