While filming the Joan Jett biopic, The Runaways, this summer Kristen Stewart really got into character. From the rocker T-shirts to the jet black shaggy haircut, Kristen was the spitting image of a young Jett — in fact, when the starlet and the rocker were spotted hanging out in L.A. we could hardly tell them apart! Now, Kristen is back on set in Vancouver to shoot Eclipse, the third installment of Twilight, reviving her role as high school coed Bella Swan. Gone is Joan Jett’s mullet and back is Bella Swan’s long luxurious mane of thick brown locks. We’re just impressed with how versatile Stewart is! But what do you think? Tell us: Do you like Kristen Stewart better as Bella Swan or Joan Jett?

Kristen is a beautiful woman and talented actor. She was amazing in Adventureland and I cant wait for the next Twilight movie!

Neither! Most actors improve with each film and are different in each genre. If you look at her body of work, she’s the same character, same acting, every single time.

Several people here have stated that Joan Jett almost went into Opera in her youth. Wrong. You are thinking of Pat Benatar, a contemporary of Joan Jetts.

I thought Bella was supposed to be very pretty. Kristen is just a little better looking than an average girl her age. She does look better as Bella.

no one could have looked better playing joan jett except joan herself. i think the mad rocker look is a great change for kristin. i also think she looks great as bella. she is an actress that can do both sweet and sassy and crazy punk…….shes awesome

Leah on

I hate her either way.
Horrible acting, a disgrace to the novels Stephenie Meyer wrote.

Leah on

Um, I think all you demonstrated is that she has a good hair stylist who knows how to weave. Because her acting is pretty abysmal. I mean who gets paid that much to be the same character over and over again… oh that’s right, Keanu Reeves. Another AMAZING actor with a HUGE range and multiple hairstyles.

she sucks at both
