“This is not the life I would have chosen for myself. I wish there had been someone to vote no for me.”

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: In the Twilight saga, immortal children are known to be a problem for concealing the vampire's secret. Because of that, any immortal child created is usually destroyed shortly after. However, exact ages for what constitutes as an immortal child is never explicitly stated. It is assumed that if the child in question is able to follow the laws set by Volturi, then they will be allowed to continue their existence. Two vampires that fall under that category are Jane and Alec. Both are cannonly around the ages of 12 or 13, and tend to be shown as sadistic and aggressive, especially Jane. They seem to have no problems harming others, and even enjoy it. Is this really their fault though? The two of them are expected to conduct themselves like fully grown adults, which they aren't and can never be. They are forever mentally 12/13, which is most likely extremely frustrating for them. They are both permanently hormonal preteens, who are stuck in the middle of puberty. The only acceptable way for them to take out their inner frustrations is through harming others. Perhaps that is why those two are so filled with anger, and why they enjoy hurting others. They were just turned too young.

The Kids Are Alright: How YA Stars Have Become The Unlikely Saviors Of American Indie Film

Kristen Stewart, a severely talented starlet immortalized by “The Twilight Saga,” has followed the tween mega-franchise with roles as guard at Guantanamo Bay (“Camp X-Ray”), a muse for Jack Kerouac (“On the Road”), and — in recent Cannes sensation “Personal Shopper” — a haunted ex-pat who spends 20 minutes of screen-time text messaging with a ghost. When not selling tabloids, she can be found working with major auteurs like Kelly Reichardt, Woody Allen, and Olivier Assayas.

Robert Pattinson broke free from his YA series like a rabid dog let off his leash, racing towards David Cronenberg’s twisted embrace before the last installment of the “Twilight” saga even hit theaters. Since those collaborations (in which he seized control of his own career, graduating from a limo passenger in “Cosmopolis” to a limo driver in “Maps to the Stars”), Pattinson has been a post-apocalyptic simpleton for David Michôd, T.E. Lawrence for Werner Herzog, and a WWI-era political stooge for first-time director Brady Corbet. “I can’t speak for anyone else,” Corbet told Indiewire, “but from what I know of those actors, they are very film-literate people. Someone like Kristen Stewart has always worked with great filmmakers. She started out with David Fincher, after all. The ‘Twilight’ franchise was the curveball, not the auteurist works she’s just continued to work on.”


Love what Brady had to say about Kristen. Interesting don’t you all think?!
