Bye-Bye Mullet, Hello Long Locks! Is Kristen Stewart Better as Bella Swan or Joan Jett?

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?

With the wig Bella looks like a werewolf. The wig you can tell is fake. She should have worn a wig for the Joan Jett movie and kept her hair for the twilight movies.

It was Pat Benatard not Joan Jett that almost went opera. And yes she would have had sweat on her T-shirts. She has been a rock star since she was 15. Rock Stars sweat.

I definitly prefer the long brown locks, she looks more her age the long hair.

I love her as Joan Jett. She looks sweet and edgy. It’s a departure from a somewhat boring Bella.

Cutting one’s hair and piling on eyeliner doesn’t mean you suddenly possess versatility. She still acts the same way no matter what role she’s in (and it’s not different from how she acts in real life, either)
