Hahaha. I know how you feel! We have both been saying the same things!
Oh well.... at least we agree.
I have tried really hard to not come down on one side of this or the other, but I have to admit that I agree with you both. Not just because I really think Kristen made a great Bella, and I know that I would not want any other current actress in the role because only Kristen could have really done it right. That is just my opinion. The fact is that people who call themselves fans of Twilight need to get over themselves and their jealousy and support Kristen as a part of what we love.
I want to make a few things abundantly clear to those of you who have nothing but hate and disrespect for Kristen Stewart:
She plays Bella, which is very different from the statement I see flying around here claming that she isBella. Any one of us could run around pretending to be Bella, and for good or for bad that would not make us Bella. Bella is a character in a book that we all love and feel a part of. Why should we hate Kristen for wanting to be a part of that book too? Answer: we shouldn't! You can identify with Bella, right? Well, so can she. And she was the one lucky enough to get the part of playing Bella in a fairly big production. GET OVER IT! Or go make your own movie and cast yourself as Bella, if you really can't stand to see anyone else in the role.
The point is that she is human, just like you and me and everyone else in this sorry world, and she is not perfect. We all say and do things that come out wrong and get misinterpreted, and we all get angry and annoyed with people we love. I really think Kristen loves Twilight (the book), she loves playing Bella (her job), and she loves us, her fans (people she loves)! But she can be annoyed with those things too! I know I have personally been fustrated with parts of the book, with my job, and with my friends and family. It's the same thing!
And stop with that crap about "Oh, I'm so sorry, I thought this was a place to share our opinions! I just wanted to talk about my opinions! You can have your opinions, and I'll have mine."
There is a difference between an opinion and a straight up hate fest! Ever hear the saying "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all?" Yeah? Well, heed it! All this anger and hate for Kristen is rather pathetic, and it makes those of you who participate in it appear immature and ugly (not physically, but ever hear of inner beauty? Well you have none when you speak with such hate and disgust). Just keep it to yourself or cry about it in your diary or something. Most of us don't want to hear it!
