SheWired Shot of The Day: Kristen Stewart, Que Bella ‘W’ Cover

There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value. Twilight’s Bella Swan, actress Kristen Stewart, transforms into an almost unrecognizable glamazon for W magazine’s new cover feature.

There is a moment in just about every workday when we come across something sexy, gratuitous and completely pointless that we wish we could post but don't under the auspices of there being nothing lesbian about it and often there being no redeeming value. Well, we at SheWired have made an executive decision to just throw any of our pseudo-feminist caution to the wind and to just post our favorite shot of the day, whether it be sexy, salacious, or just because…

Twilight’s actress Kristen Stewart -- Bella Swan-- transforms into an almost unrecognizable glamazon for W magazine’s new cover feature. Looking like an irresistible mix of Penelope Cruz and Kate Beckinsale, with a hot heap of Jean Shrimpton old school glam, Stewart shows off her luscious dark locks and penetrating eyes in the stylish shoot.

The accompanying interview, a more familiar picture of Stewart emerges. Mature, honest yet private, and obviously passionate about her work. Stewart discusses her early work as a child, costarring with Jodie Foster in Panic Room, and her “tomboy” look that set her apart.  I have brothers, and that so-called boyish quality was something that I was deathly self-conscious about when I was younger,” she shares. “I was, like, No, I’m a girl. Actually, I’m still embarrassed to say that… I don’t really know what to say. I just knew I wanted to work. And I did. I was working when I read the script for Twilight. I read the script before I read the book. I actually did the audition before reading the book, which was kind of crazy. Obviously, I tore all four books apart over the course of three years, but initially I had no idea that Twilight was such a big deal.”

Stewart said she was taken with the themes of Twilight at a time in her life when she was experiencing a lot of similar emotional peaks. And the allure of vampires didn’t hurt: I fucking love me a vampire [Laughs]. I was 17 when I read Twilight, and at the time it was so perfect for me. The script was about young kids who think they can handle stuff that they just can’t. And they’re going to do it anyway. Because, why not? Just torture yourself. I relate to that. Vampires are a little dangerous—and we girls like to test ourselves.”

The most anticipated moment of Breaking Dawn, the wedding scene, was a big production for Stewart to shoot. “This was my first wedding. It was insane. And odd,” she tells W. “The wedding dress experience was a huge deal. I tried on one version of the dress, and it was like tweak and tweak and alter and tweak and change, and then it’s done. BFD dress. Huge deal.”
