Since Kristen Stewart Is Destined To Be A Single Homewrecker, Here’s A Taste Of Her Playing The Loving Mom In Breaking Dawn

We noticed something interesting when watching the latest trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 on ClevverTV: While it’s mostly the same footage of the Cullens banding together with other international vampire covens against the Volturi, new trailers are now really playing up the angle of Kristen Stewart as a mother. Probably because everyone thinks she’s heartless for cheating on Robert Pattinson—I’m not surprised that Summit and the producers are pushing out a more sympathetic Kristen.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with the series, here’s where we’re at when Breaking Dawn, Part 2 hits theaters on November 16th: Bella Swan has fulfilled her dream of becoming an agile, superstrong vampire and joining the Cullen family along with her newborn baby Renesmee. Except, because “Nessie” (Mackenzie Foy) is a human/vampire hybrid, she grows at an alarming rate and in just a few months already looks and acts like a little kid. And because Nessie is basically a Mary Sue, everyone just can’t get enough of her. Including her new parents who got to skip past the “no sleep” stage — albeit after Renesmee almost killed Bella trying to get out of her stomach — and spend the whole trailer gazing adoringly at their offspring.

Warning: This is a lot of emotional weight for Kristen to take after years of just giving the same facial expression. So look at these screenshots at your own risk, because the soft smiles and fierce mama bear glares might shock you.

When she’s not tackling mountain lions in mid-air, Bella keeps her (newly red) eyes on her daughter.

This is what Bella looks like even before they find out that the Volturi want to burn Renesmee alive—so overcome with emotion that she gets to have sex and drink blood and stay young forever with Edward, but also ready to take on all the haters. (Perhaps Kristen was already looking ahead to the people who would deride her for cheating on Rob with Rupert Sanders?)

Before that great .gif of Edward using Bella as a weapon came out, this was my favorite part of every Breaking Dawn trailer. When Alice informs the rest of the Cullens that the Volturi think Renesmee is an immortal child — that is, a kid who got turned into a vampire instead of some vamp/human hybrid — Bella splutters, “She was born, not bitten! She grows every single day!” After years of Kristen playing Bella so deadpan, this outburst of emotion mostly prompts laughter.

Kristen seems to have decided that the way to most accurately communicate that human emotion of love is by clasping her on-screen daughter’s hand to her face and staring longingly into her eyes. You know, basically what Bella did with Edward, minus the sexual tension. Here’s the top photo from another angle, via E! Online:

Similarly, you have Bella tenderly telling little Nessie, “I’ll never let anybody hurt you.” I imagine that Kristen channeled her most famous on-screen mother, Jodie Foster circa Panic Room, for this interlude.

Then we come to the final battle, which of course takes place in the snow. Here’s one more screenshot, this time in .gif form to give you a better sense of the united “BITCH PLEASE” faces on these three:

    And yet, Renesmee is still not a name.

    • Jenni

      Sometimes I start to think you know NOTHING about vampires.

    • Lo

      Thanks to the Cleolinda reviews, I still call the kid Edwob Charlisle.

    • Irish Girl

      I know David Boreanaz looked GREAT shirtless.

    • Jenni

      That’s a valid statement.

    • Irish Girl

      Thank you. I’m still kicking myself for not really knowing or caring who he was when I met him fifteen years ago.

    • lizzy

      Oh yummy, lucky woman.

    • Irish Girl

      Well, yeah…except not so much. I really didn’t know who he was – I just thought he was “some supporting actor on Buffy that plays a vampire”. But that was FULL of vampires, so how was I supposed to know? Plus, he was kind of shy back then; not nearly as outgoing and gregarious as he is now. So I pretty much met him, “how nice, thank you, please take your itinerary” and that was it. I didn’t notice him much after that.

      Calchi – Novati deconstructs the Renesmee name. she is the merging of two species. this is about embracing the Other, NOT tolerating the Other, but welcoming the Other.

      The whole armpit thing was Kristen putting her on.

    Nessie puts her hands on people’s faces because she can communicate that way. She’s got the “opposite gift” of her father. It looks ridiculous if you don’t know that though.

      Ohhh right! I have actually read the book, but I totally forgot that part. Thanks for the reminder!

    • Irish Girl

      I was just about to say the same thing, just to clarify the issue. You’re absolutely right; that’s her preferred method of communication.

  • http://robinvandam1.tumblr.com/ Robin Van Dam

    Dear Natalie, Well done. I love the way you are putting those “Haters” and complacent idiots that say she has only one expression, in their place. I will tweet this, it deserves it because it speaks to all of us, at least the one’s that are listening and take the time to understand what you are writing. Bravo!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1041690054 Natalie Zutter

      Thank -you-! Appreciate the link love.

  • Irish Girl

    …I am getting whispers and tricklings that they may have secretly gotten back together. If this is true, y’all know it doesn’t surprise me a bit. I’ve suspected they might have been back together for a couple/few weeks now. Will let you know if I hear anything more definite. If you’re interested. And if Jenni doesn’t get there first. :P

    • lizzy

      Share away – we’ll have to call you Detective Irish Girl (or DIG)! Maybe you can work with Benedict Cumberbatch…

    • Irish Girl

      You know, the first time I heard that name, I honestly thought it was a fictional character in some movie I hadn’t heard of yet. I mean, come ON.

    • lizzy

      But the fun you can have with that name…plus, the geek in me adores him.

    • northGAgirl

      It’s been a while since I have been lurking on the comments here at crushable…so Irish Girl, are you now thinking the cheating was real?

    • Irish Girl

      I was never sure one way or the other, actually. But I still lean towards the likelihood that Stewart was maneuvered, manipulated, or otherwise lured into a situation not entirely of her choosing. And I still hold firm that if it was a seduction/indiscretion, Sanders had a hell of a lot more responsibility for it. That’s just my own opinion; it doesn’t make me right.. But that’s where my barometer is holding right now.

    • northGAgirl

      I can actually see both sides of the issue…I can see that the photos were real, etc. and I can see that it was a total setup. I will say this, KS’s appearance the last few days has definitely left me thinking this girl is going through something. She’s so super thin and I know she’s always been awkward in interviews but clearly she is now just uncomfortable. And, the pictures from the NYC showing of her, Walter and Garrett she’s not touching either one where before in photos at movie events she always looked comfortable.

      Also, if this girl was really having an affair or “into” Rupert Sanders then I think she wouldn’t have made the apology or being wearing all of RP’s stuff…so I agree that if it all is for real then it was truly a one time thing and not something long lasting…if it had been a true affair then she and RP would be dunzo for good…no matter what. (well, I would be dunzo if it were me)

      Anyway…like I said, I could see it both ways. Regardless, as soon as I put my son to bed tonight I’m renting SWATH because I heard it’s a great movies and she’s really good in it (and I’m ignoring that the director is clearly a douche)

      Last thing, are you on Twitter?

    • Irish Girl

      Who, me? Yeah, I sure am. @Rowaenthe . Come join the crazy train!

    • lizzy

      Would love your PR insights on one detail that has niggled at me: Flameflynet. Flameflynet sold the original photos to US Weekly (really crap photo quality, no video shared to our knowledge). Then, the only other photos of Kristen for weeks “Kristen emerges” in crop top, etc. – very brief, very contained photo moment, had to be arranged by Kristen’s people- sold exclusively for 2 days to PopSugar (one theory was it was to track for marketing response) – these photos were sold to PopSugar by none other than Flameflynet.
      My question: What are the odds Flameflynet would be the only photo agency in this game if she was not involved in setting up the US Weekly photos? Certainly she would have not given them the exclusive “Kristen emerges” photos if they were the enemy? And lastly, isn’t a big part of the Fameflynet business celebrity PR?

    • Irish Girl

      Well, you kind of answered your own question with that last sentence, actually. Or, shall I say, you at least provided a possible answer. ;)

    • lizzy

      Clear as mud! Go check out the video posted on the last Liberty Ross article from a couple of days ago – newest post in the discussions, with a analysis of the actual photo site, etc. If accurate it is mind-blowing.

    • Irish Girl

      Wait, back up. I don’t know which Liberty Ross article you mean. You’ve piqued my curiosity.

      And what I meant was that last sentence of yours: “Isn’t a big part of Fameflynet business celebrity PR” could be the answer to why Kristen’s PR people would use them (if they indeed did broker a deal): it’s the business of promotion and image rehabilitation. In the long run, it doesn’t matter if that photo service sold the Sanders images to USMagazine, and it doesn’t necessarily mean that Stewart is in cahoots with the service. It’s just business.

    • lizzy

      Sorry, this article:

      I get what you were indicating about the PR, I was just being silly. In an older forum, I had also linked to an article about how closely aligned FameFly directors Simon Bridger and Danny Hayward were with Jade Goody, I don’t know if you read it? Here’s the article:
      http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2355293/Jades-life-in-picture-album-for-her-boys.html
      The character of these men made me wonder about where the $ went for photos sold to US Weekly and if it supported the theory of the 4 key players being in cohoots to bust the tabloids on how BS it all is.

    • Irish Girl

      Hmm. That vid is rather interesting. Lemme cudgel my brain over that one for a day or two before I speaketh. Gonna need some time to process and ruminate. :)

    • lizzy

      Hey just got back online and here you are – Jenni has created a new story around the video & it’s crazed with posters already.

    • Irish Girl

      Yeah, I saw that. People need to calm down and take a deep breath. Nothing is ever as good or as bad as our imaginations conjure. Okay, wait…the Katie Holmes Great Escape was pretty badass.

    • Jenni

      Before RobstenGate2k12 I thought the Katie Holmes Great Escape would be my favorite scandal of 2012.

    • Irish Girl

      I actually think it’s still my favorite scandal of 2012. But we still have a couple months left before the end of the year, so who the hell knows what could happen.

    • lizzy

      That was completely badass!!! Though I was pretty impressed way back when with Sandra Bullock when she disappeared for that month and then showed up on the cover of People with a new baby!

    • Jenni

      I always use the Sandra Bullock example when celebs complain that paps follow them around. If Sandra Bullock can HIDE a child for several during an incredibly high point in her career, then anyone can hide a child if they want to.

    • lizzy

      Kind of like Beyonce’s pregnancy ;-)
