Kristen Stewart was born in Los Angeles, CA. Her father, John, works as a stage manager and TV producer for different organizations, most notably FOX. Her mother, Jules Mann-Stewart, is originally from Australia and works as a script supervisor in Los Angeles.
Her acting career began after an agent noticed her performing in a school Christmas play when she was eight years old. After a non-speaking part in a Disney TV movie, Stewart acted in the role of Sam Jennings in The Safety of Objects. Shortly after completing this film, Kristen landed the part of Jodie Foster’s daughter in Panic Room (2002). Then only 12 years old, she was already working with one of the biggest names in Hollywood. She received praise for her performance in the film, and, as a result, garnered the respect of the Hollywood community and was nominated for a Young Artist Award.
Since the start of her Hollywood career, Stewart has entertained moviegoers with her impassioned character portrayals, specifically that of Bella Swan Twilight. She also has multiple projects currently filming or in the production phases as she heads into hosting duties for Saturday Night Live. She’ll be joined by musical guest Alessia Cara on February 4th.
