Kristen Stewart recently got candid about the on-screen love triangle that plays out in the Twilight Saga, as she herself has personal experience with such trials of the heart.
Stewart, who plays Bella Swan on screen, feels for both vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner).
The 22-year-old actress discussed the topic of love triangles while promoting Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 in Tokyo, Japan, on Wednesday.
“There were times when it was difficult to agree with every decision she [Bella] made, but at the same time it was always coming from such an honest place in her heart,” Stewart told Huffington Post.
“As a woman, I think that it’s really important not to discredit feeling. You say, ‘I don’t know why I feel it, but I do. And I’m gonna figure out why pretty soon.’ The whole love triangle thing... She needs Jacob in her life. He needs her in the same way.
“It’s not like an unbalanced thing. I think that they really offer each other so much. If you can get past conventions, and get past what everyone else is thinking, and have what you want, then you’re gonna be a much happier person,” she added.
Her real-life love triangle unfolded in the public eye when the actress issued an apology to Pattinson for her fling with married director Rupert Sanders in July.
