lady4string ~ Are we talking about the same Bella? Have you even been reading the same books?
Bella was never emotive, or highly animated. She was stiff, shy, introverted and flatly sarcastic. She doesn't have many 'out-there' characteristics. She doesn't smile that often. She doesn't laugh that often.
What do you expect Kstew to do? I think Kristen is spot on with her portrayal of Bella. She understands her. She is her.
And Kristen has said time and bloody time again that she loves these books, and her character. Just because she doesn't play Bella how you want, doesn't mean shes not doing a fantastic job.
Maybe you're so used to all those other 'actresses' (Disney actresses, perhaps?) who are so forced in their acting, and are obviously over-acting, that when you see a gifted and talented real actress like Kristen, who is very serious and intense about Bella, you think she's no good.
But again, I'm still not sure what Bella you're referring too. Cause it certainly isn't the one we're talking about.
I don't know if you're holding a grudge against Kristen, or do not like her for some reason, but do not bring her acting into it.
And did you say that Rob didn't 'pull his weight' because he was 'barely in it'? How the hell is that his fault, and why should he be criticised for it? Rob has improved immensely.
