Kristen Stewart: “Nikki Reed is My Best Friend!”

December 19, 2008


Twilight leading lady Kristen Stewart is starting to settle down after a whirlwind press tour for her blockbuster movie and just squeezed in a Q&A session with BlackBook magazine.

The 18-year-old Los Angeles native talked everything from boys to books.

On working with Sean Penn: It definitely opened my eyes to a different creative process. His direction is very specific, but still, he lets things happen. He just wants you to go for it. Once he picks his characters, he gives you that confidence. Plus, I really enjoyed working with Emile [Hirsch]. He’s such a good friend of mine. That was like a little section of my life. It was very fruitful.

On her favorite book: I’m into classic literature. My favorite book is “East of Eden.” Steinbeck calls it “The Big Book.” It covers fundamental ideas of good and evil. Other favorite writers … oh, it’s so hard when you can only pick a couple of writers. It always seems like you are trying so hard to look like an intellectual.

On friends and free-time: My friends are actors. My best friend is Nikki Reed, who is also in Twilight. And my boyfriend, Michael Angarano, is also an actor. I never thought I would date an actor, but he’s my best friend. I’ve known him since I was 13 years old. I live in the Valley. I’m sort of a typical Valley Girl. We just sit around and play guitar and watch movies and hang out.
