Kristen Stewart Transformation: From an Extra to Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actress [PHOTOS]
Who thought that a tomboy would become the highest paid actress in Hollywood for 2012? Kristen Stewart definitely broke the borders and emerged as one of the sought after actress in all of Hollywood.
Stewart's first role was a small nonspeaking part in the Disney Channel original film The Thirteenth Year. Then, she had another part in the film The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas as the "ring toss girl." She was cast in her first major role in the movie "Panic Room" as Jodie Foster's daughter with diabetes.
Her career eventually was catapulted after she was casted to star in the Twilight series as Isabella Swan, the human who fall in love to the vampire Edward Cullen. After filming the first few Twilight films, she then developed an off screen romance with her co-star Robert Pattinson.
From her stardom in Twilight, she starred in other films such as "Snow White and the Huntsman," "Welcome to the Rileys" and "On the Road".
Last summer, a controversy came out concerning Kristen and her "Snow White and the Hunstman" director Rupert Sanders. The two had an illicit affair on the set of the movie. Both released a public apology and to their repective partners.
Just when everyone thinks that their relationship is over, they made up just right before the premiere of their latest movie, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2". The two were seen together at the premiere party last week. Now, the film is doing very well in the box office.
