Kristen Stewart admitted saying goodbye to “The Twilight Saga” franchise, which wraps up this November in theaters with the release of “Breaking Dawn – Part 2,” is hard.
“I’m definitely not excited for it to be over,” she said during a press conference in Japan earlier this week. “But, now that the whole story is told and everything is done and we don’t have those big moments weighing on us [and now] that Bella can finally have everything that she wants, I can’t wait for everyone to feel that as well.”
While Kristen’s Bella character is now married to Robert Pattinson’s Edward, Kristen said the love triangle, which was a part of earlier films, and included Taylor Lautner’s Jacob, was integral to the characters’ overall arcs.
“The whole love triangle thing — she needs Jacob in her life, he needs her in the same way, it’s not like unbalanced thing,” Kristen said. “I think that they really offer each other so much and if you can get past conventions and what everyone else is thinking, and have what you want, then you’re gonna be a much happier person…. They really do get to a point where they get to have everything and it’s nice.”
Asked about why the film franchise has been such a phenomenon, Kristen said she thinks it has something to do with Bella’s strength and her remarkable “Twilight Saga” journey.
“I think it represents a stage of life that is so full and it’s so full of feeling and I think that it really attracts people that have faith in those feelings and it doesn’t discredit them,” she said. “I think it’s fairly rare to have a story that really gives a lot of credit to young girls that haven’t figured it all out yet, but are incredibly trusting of themselves. I think that a really good, hard-hitting, fundamentally charged love story is always gonna — I don’t know – it’s always going to fuel something inside of us.”
