Kristen Stewart has revealed that she secretly sobbed before shooting an emotional scene for the film The Twilight Saga: New Moon, fearing that she might fail to give a great performance. The actress plays heroine Bella Swan in the famous vampire franchise, which tells the story of a mortal who falls in love with a kindly bloodsucker, played by Robert Pattinson.
She was worried that her fans would be disappointed if she did not properly portray the intense sadness her character feels when her vampire lover leaves her. Thinking that, she sobbed uncontrollably before she was due on set.
“Before the scene, I was sitting in my car, like, f**king crying - crying so hard you can't breathe, because I was really overwhelmed and intimidated by the scene,” Contactmusic quoted her as having told MTV.com.
“Everyone says, ‘She better be able to pull off the emotion in this movie!' And it's such an important moment in the book, when he leaves. I'm thinking, We have to be done now. Just tell me we're done,” she added.
