With both parents from the entertainment industry, Kristen Stewart was raised in an environment conducive to a career in movies.

Movie Career
When Kristen Stewart was just eight years old, she had participated in a Christmas play at school, where her performance was noticed by an agent. It opened the doors for a glorious career in Hollywood, starting with a tiny part in a Disney TV film, The Thirteenth Year. She started her professional acting journey with the portrayal of a character named Sam Jennings in the 2001 movie The Safety of Objects. The talented young woman shared screen space with the veteran Jodie Foster for the 2002 American thriller movie Panic Room. Her performance was critically acclaimed and she even got nominated for the Best Performance in a Feature Film - Leading Young Actress at the Young Actor Awards. She then acted alongside stars like Sharon Stone and Dennis Quaid for another thriller, Cold Creek Manor, in 2003.

The 2004 release, Catch That Kid, was the first movie where Kristen Stewart plays the lead role. She featured in the showtime TV film Speak in 2004, along with few other movies in the subsequent years. A notable performance was Stewart playing a minor role in Sean Penn`s critically acclaimed Into The Wild (2007), for which she even won her first Young Artist Award. In the same year, the actress appeared in the romantic movie In the Land of Women, alongside Hollywood stars Meg Ryan and Adam Brody. Kristen Stewart grew from strength to strength and started delivering some stellar performances. One such strong performance in The Cake Eaters, which was an independent movie screened only at film festivals.

Kristen Stewart`s stardom saw a massive spike as she started her vampire romance by playing the main character Bella Swan in the movie Twilight (2008), an adaptation of the Twilight novel by author Stephenie Meyer. Her co-star in this Twilight movie was Robert Pattinson, who played the character of her vampire boyfriend, Edward Cullen. Stewart won the Best Actress at the MTV Movie Awards for her compelling performance in this vampire flick. The grand commercial success of Twilight led to Stewart starring in the sequels of this movie, titled The Twilight Saga: New Moon (2009), The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (2010), The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011) and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (2012).
