In recent interviews, the 25-year-old actress indicated she has put the “Twilight” phenomenon behind her, both professionally and personally.
The actress thrilled Twihards when she attended the Tuesday premiere of her comedy “American Ultra” with Taylor Lautner.
“[Allen] wasn’t in the room, but I did audition for it”, she said on the show, according to MTV. “I just want to get this one out first, and then we’ll starting thinking about a sequel”.
It follows the story of stoner Mike Howell (Eisenberg) whose plans to propose to long-time girlfriend Phoebe Larson (Stewart).
While she won’t talk about her relationships, Stewart did tell Uproxx that she would be interested in resurrecting her role as Bella Swan in another “Twilight” film. In addition to Stewart and co-star Jesse Eisenberg, Connie Britton, Topher Grace, and John Leguizamo were all in attendance. This is the first time in a long time two of the main stars were spotted together. “And so I just wasn’t sure”. One day a mysterious woman visits Mike at his job and says some kind of Central Intelligence Agency brainwash sounding code words in the hopes of “activating” him. It seems Stewart chose to have a fun night with her old pals. Online. “People who write mean things are on the outside”. She added that years later, she still feels “fascinated” of the Stephenie Meyer movie adaptation.
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh, the R-rated action comedy is set to open wide in US theatres on August 21.
In fairness to the marketing team at Lionsgate, this is not an easy movie to market, so I see why they’re going the “stoner” route, even if that’s not necessarily the best fit.
“Only at the end, with completely off-the-wall animated closing credits that embrace the film’s latent surreality, do we finally get a glimpse of what “American Ultra” has been aching to become”.
