Although Kristen Stewart developed a robust resume at a very young age as a child actor (she appeared alongside Jodi Foster in 1999's The Panic Room and starred in 2004's Speak), it wasn’t until she was casted in the film adaptations of the popular young adult book series, Twilight, that the actress became a household name. Stewart delivered a moody and mysterious portrayal of the series’ protagonist, Bella Swan, who becomes the love interest of the troubled vampire Edward Cullen, played by British actor Robert Pattinson. Stewart and Pattinson’s romance would become a reality off-screen as well, with the two dating for four years. However, the relationship later ended with a very public breakup in 2012. Following the conclusion of the Twilight film series that same year, Stewart continued to establish herself as a respected actress in the industry, appearing in 2012's Snow White and the Huntsmen and the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, along with the award-winning 2014 film, Still Alice.
