Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella Swan in the movie Twilight and upcoming New Moon, is currently filming Runaways, in which she plays late 70s-early 80s rocker Joan Jett. The Runaways was the name of Jett’s band in the late 1970s before she did some solo work and started Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
Stewart goes all out in her portrayal of Jett, rocking the leather jacket, leather pants, and most significant of all, a mullet haircut. Now that’s dedication.
Not that the young actress will have much time to think about her hair. She is expected to return within a few days to filming the third installment in the Twilight saga, which is titled Eclipse. And as soon as Eclipse finishes shooting in October, New Moon will be just about ready to premiere, which means she’ll be on the road promoting it.
She also spent some time last week at San Diego’s Comic Con convention answering questions about her role in the Twilight movies. She is constantly asked whether she and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson are together as a couple, and she says no. Speaking with Britain’s Top of the Pops, Stewart said, “No. Rob and I are good friends. We went through a lot together, so we feel very close. I’ve acquired a good buddy and that’s a big deal, but I haven’t left my boyfriend for Robert Pattinson.”
