Hoping to see Bella Swan, Katniss Everdeen and Hermione Granger together in a big-screen crossover some day? Don’t hold your breath. You’re much likelier to see the actresses behind these iconic characters hanging out in real life.
“Twilight” superstar Kristen Stewart revealed to MTV News that she got to spend some time with “Hunger Games” and “Harry Potter” actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson recently. Although they didn’t compare notes exactly, Stewart said the three of them were able to relate to one another through the enormity of their respective fantasy franchises.
“She’s so cool,” Stewart said of Lawrence. “I was a lot younger than her when I first sort of entered this world of franchise land, and I don’t know, I guess we sort of both went, ‘Wow, this is so weird.’ We were actually sat in a corner with Emma Watson as well, the three of us. We were like, ‘Wow, this is strange. This is really cool.’”
Does it seem strange to hear about Stewart, Lawrence and Watson hanging out? It’s not as bizarre as it sounds, according to Stewart; just because the actresses starred in rival series doesn’t mean they aren’t interested in socializing with one another.
“I think people assume that actresses don’t want to [be friends],” said Stewart. “It was kind of a great feeling, to be honest. I was like, ‘This is kind of just awesome.’”
Though Lawrence still has three movies to shoot in the “Hunger Games” series, Stewart’s work on “Twilight” is at an end, making her an official veteran alongside “Potter” star Watson. The vampire romance tale truly comes to a close this Friday (November 16) with the release of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2.”
