Despite the praise for her on-screen parenting prowess, Stewart said she's not quite ready to be one in real life.
“I can't wait to be a mom, but like, no. I can wait,” she said with a grin.
“It was one of my favorite things about the story from Day 1. There was never enough about that in the script for me. And, luckily, Stephenie's been really involved in this last one (movie) especially, because ... it was something that we were really together about,” she added. “It was one aspect of her that I was really most excited to play. It feeds into, you know, vampires have slightly more animalistic nature.”
Although she isn't sprinting away from the “Twilight” phenomenon with supernatural speed, the longtime actress is thrilled to get the final chapter of Bella Swan's saga to the big screen.
“I'm so happy that the story is told. You have no idea. Usually you've got five weeks, five months to look at a schedule and go, ‘Whew, that day's coming up, that day's coming up.' We had five years. And so, you know, the fact that this thing is out and it's not weighing on us anymore, super excited about that. But I don't want it to sound like I'm excited just to be done with the experience, because to be honest, it's like such a particular tone; anything, you do an interview for ‘Twilight,' you go back,” she said.
“It's a feeling, and I will definitely miss that. But again, I feel like it's not going anywhere. ... I mean, it is sad, it is strange. But I mean, it's normal, things shouldn't stay stagnant. Got to move on.”
She added that she can't get specific about what is next.
“I think scripts can really surprise you. ... Things have fallen in my lap and I've gotten incredibly insanely lucky to get the right feelings and meet people that share them. You know, if I can keep doing that, I will be a happy girl.”
