Backstage.com has a very long, in-depth interview with Kristen Stewart just posted on Nov. 3rd. It's a great article with tibits about Kristen.
Things we learned about Kristen from this article.
1. Sean Penn is a Kristen fan!
"Rileys" director Jake Scott first took note of Stewart in Sean Penn's "Into the Wild." Her screen time is limited, but she made it
her own. "I went for a drink with Sean Penn, and he said, 'Check
this kid out,'" recalls Scott.
2. If Kristen read the 'WTTR' script at 16 she wouldn't of taken the role.
"I'm really glad that it took the time that it did to get made, because I think by the time
I was 18, I was ready and more confident and mature enough to play
the part," says the actor, now 20. "I had read the script when I
was 16, and I was just too young. I would've shied away from stuff,
3. WTTR was in the works before she took Twilight.
4. Kristen's a valley girl.
"I'm from the Valley, and I've had the most normal and privileged upbringing, so

5. A role has to really speak to Kristen before she takes it.
"If you sit around going, 'Well, it's a good story, there are a few things
that confuse me, but I can work it out' No, no, no. I couldn't do
that. I think I'd be so bad in whatever project that was. I can't
make something work that doesn't completely speak to me. You just
go, 'I want to live that. I'd really like to learn from that.' And
you see it all so clearly."
