Kristen Stewart Biography

Though she spent some time in Colorado as a youngster, Kristen Stewart’s formative years were primarily spent in and around the Los Angeles area. The daughter of television producer John Stewart (FOX TV), Kristen Stewart’s interest in acting sparked at a very early age and the would-be starlet consequently took on roles in school plays whenever possible.

It was at just such a production that an agent spotted her and -- by the time she was just 8 years old -- Kristen Stewart had become a fixture on the auditioning circuit. Her professional debut came with a small role in a 1999 Disney Channel movie called The Thirteenth Year (she played the “girl waiting to get a drink”). It quickly became evident to Kristen Stewart’s friends and family that she stood a real chance of achieving stardom.

Her first real taste of fame came in 2001, when she was cast opposite folks like Timothy Olyphant, Joshua Jackson and Glenn Close in the acclaimed drama The Safety of Objects. Her place as an up-and-coming performer worth watching was cemented the following year with her role in David Fincher’s electrifying thriller Panic Room, in which she spent many of her scenes working alongside no less than Jodie Foster.

Kristen Stewart spent the next several years popping up in one box office success after another, including Cold Creek Manor, Catch That Kid (2004) and Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005), but it wasn’t until 2007 that she was cast in the leading role of a major Hollywood motion picture -- The Messengers.

Although The Messengers was the underwhelming horror flick, Kristen Stewart’s fans were treated to a tantalizing glimpse of her future as an A-list star. By mid 2007, Kristen Stewart had completed work on Into the Wild, Yellow Handkerchief, and What Just Happened?

And 2008 was a year when Kristen Stewart worked on more movies than any previous year. In '08 she added Jumper, What Just Happened, Yellow Handkerchief, Adventureland, and Twilight to her resume.
