Once upon a time, I took my hatred for Twilight out on Kristen Stewart. I was definitely not a fan of her. I hated that she played Bella, I hated her fake relationship with Robert Pattinson (sorry not sorry), and most of all, her extreme awkwardness made me really uncomfortable. Then one day, I watched Kristen Stewart accept an award and it hit me like a ton of bricks: OH. I am just as awkward as K-Stew.
From then on, I became a fan, and now I love Kristen. I appreciate her awkwardness, because if I were in her famous position, I would be the same exact way. I think she’s gorgeous, and I love that she seems so different from all of the other A-list stars out there. I don’t know, I just think she seems really chill and like someone I could be best friends with.
Today (April 9) is Kristen’s 24th birthday, and I decided to celebrate by putting together a bunch of GIFs of her being awesome. Here are 24 reasons Kristen Stewart would make the best friend ever… because we all need someone a little awkward in our lives, right?
