Although her character, Bella Swan, is under siege by raging newborns in “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” Kristen Stewart tells us her portrayal was a far less tortured one this time around. So much so that she ditched her plan to make an “Eclipse” playlist, a practice that helped her get into Bella’s moody headspace on “New Moon.” Instead, she went back to listening to regular old KStew tunes.
“I always listen to music, but I had particular music that I listened to on ’New Moon,’ but didn’t really have to for ’Eclipse,’ ” she told MTV News over the weekend, while promoting the June 30 flick in Los Angeles. “I just listened to my normal music. Bella’s less tortured. She’s less conflicted. I mean … it’s the most she’s conflicted about the love triangle [but] that happens sort of at the end.”
Stewart said that for the most part she “cruises through” the drama in the third movie, adding that the real dilemma is Bella’s struggle to adapt to her future as a vampire: “The main conflict is the danger and the fact that she’s losing her human life. That her family’s gonna soon maybe go away. When I was doing ’New Moon,’ I needed the music and I needed my iPod all the time and I needed to be in my own little head, but in ’Eclipse’ … the story was just different.”
“[I’ve] probably [been listening to] a little bit of both,” Stewart admitted. “But I don’t know, ’The Climb’ is my theme song — and I’m sticking to it.”
