Kristen Stewart received the praises of her producers for her dying scene in Breaking Dawn Part 1. It seems that while most actresses never want to be seen in an unflattering light, Kristen was all about looking ghastly as a dying Bella Swan.
According to a report from Hollywood Life, the Breaking Dawn producers were impressed with Kristen’s ability to be such a good sport.
“Kristen was a great sport. What we’re saying to her is, ‘We’re going to make you look not good.’ As an actress her whole thing is about beauty and looking great; what we were going to do was beyond her control and she let us do it,” visual effects supervisor John Bruno says.
Edson Williams was part of the Breaking Dawn visual effects team, too. He also weighs in on his thoughts about the scene.
“Over the last 35 minutes of the movie, one of the characters says, ‘You look terrible.’ Kristen is a good 10 pounds thinner. You would have to A/B the [before and after] pictures to see that. Then there’s a scene where she stands up, lowers her robe and stares at herself in a mirror; her bones and ribs are showing. It gets a gasp from the audience.”
Given what these two men say, can you imagine how difficult it must have been for Robert Pattinson to view Kristen Stewart looking so sickly and pale? He must have imagined what it might be like if Kristen herself were on her deathbed. How awful!
Fans of Kristen Stewart might not think it all that unlikely that she would willingly embrace looking so bad. Kristen never seems to care about what most people think. She does her own thing and definitely walks to the beat of her very own drum. She’s by no means a diva who has to look perfect at all times.
