Though Kristen Stewart has been acting since she was nine-years-old, earning acclaim for her roles in David Fincher's The Panic Room (2002) and Cold Creek Manor (2003), most will know her as Bella Swan from the Twilight movie series.
Stewart's off screen romance with co-star Robert Pattinson has thrust her even further into the national spotlight, causing the two to be regulars on the covers of tabloids everywhere. The couple (we think) has been rumored to be everything from living together to married since the series began in 2008.
"What you don't see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questionsÂ being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction," she told Elle Magazine, "All you see is an actor or a celebrity lit up but a flash."
Stewart topped Forbes Online's list of Highest Paid Actresses in 2011 by earning $34 million dollars from her Twilight: Breaking Dawn " Part 1 and Snow White and the Huntsman (2012). Before Twilight, Stewart was making her career acting in children's movies such as 2004's Catch That Kid, and indie fare like Into the Wild (2007). In 2012 Steward was also named #15 on Maxim's Hot 100 list.
