Ok..I'm not trying to rag on Kristen, because I honestly think she is a good actress and did a pretty good job as Bella, but the twitching/blinking/stuttering was a bit much for me. I could bare it for most of the movie, but the last hospital scene was too much for me. Now this is only my opinion, but it seemed like she suddenly forgot all her lines, but knew what her reaction should be to what Edward was saying so she just sputtered out whatever popped into her mind at the time. She was trying too hard to do the overwhelmed "oh shut up Edward, how dare you think that we could be apart" thing. I'm actually starting to wonder how many times they did that scene.
The (maybe?) Good:
Now about the whole blinking thing, I can only come to one conclusion. It had to be the contacts. As someone who wears them (just so I don't end up running into things because I'm blind as a bat), I have to say that I blink about 100 times more than I do with just wearing glasses. Especially when I'm under bright lights. Maybe it's just me who does that though. Who knows? I think I only ever heard her complain once about them when she was doing an interview with Rob. As we all know, Rob is a whiney baby when it comes to the contacts.
So like I said, it could have just been them.
And there are too many of us out there who put ourselves in the role of Bella while reading the books for ANYONE to do the part justice. The ones who don't see themselves as Bella have her built up in their mind in a way that no one would be able to be her either. I'm pretty sure no matter who they would have gotten to play her, we would all be picking that girl apart too. Because (some) girls are spiteful that way.
The (sometimes) Good:
Some people just plain don't like Kristen, and that's fine. I know 100% without a doubt that the only reason I have for not liking her is because of jealousy. I admit it, I'm jealous of her. She gets to have the job she wants and she loves doing it. She gets to work with other talented people. She gets to work with (and make out with, at least in the movie) Rob for sobbing out loud. Hell yeah I'm jealous. She's talented. Others may not see her as being talented, but whatever. That's cool. Sure she does and says things that annoy the hell out of me to no end, but so do some of the people I love dearly.
I think I'm done critiquing her to death. I shall step off my Oprah box now. Lol. I am wholeheartedly sorry if nothing I said made sense. It is almost 6a.m. and I'm still at work and still tired to no end. I shouldn't even be on here right now. Haha.
Wow. I REALLY shouldn't be on here. I totally just posted this in the Rob thread. Hahahaha. Mandy completely threw me off since she was the last to post in both his and Kristen's.
Oh Lord. Someone slap me! Lol. Ok I be quiet now. *runs back to the Rob thread where it's safe*
