10 Things You Didn't Know About Kristen Stewart

She's more than just that girl from Twilight.

Everybody thinks of Kristen Stewart as "that girl from Twilight," but to label the actress as such as to does her varied career something of an injustice; after all, she's also "that girl from Adventureland," or "that girl from Panic Room," or "that girl from Still Alice, On the Road, Snow White and the Huntsman and Into the Wild." What's instantly apparent about the likes of Kristen Stewart, then, is the way in which she moves effortlessly between big blockbusters and more intimate indie fare. What's also apparent is the fact that she tends to split opinion. Whilst many view her as a talented performer of the cool and beautiful kind, others are quick to peg her as a talentless hack of the highest order, capable of delivering one-note performances in a jarring, edgy, angst-like manner. However you feel about Kristen Stewart, though, there's no denying the fact that she's one of the biggest movie stars on the planet - a natural side effect of having starred as the lead in the Twilight movies. Is there more to Stewart than meets the eye, then? As is the case with most people... of course there is! Here, then, are 10 things you probably didn't know about the woman who just so happened to be the highest-paid actress in the world back in 2012 (yep: she pulled in an estimated $34.5 million dollars)...
