Kristen out for Yellow premiere
Kristen Stewart smouldered in front of a barrage of flashes at the Los Angeles premiere of The Yellow Handkerchief.
The Twilight star, who wore a short black dress, walked the red carpet outside the Pacific Design Centre as the photographers snapped away, and then quickly made her way into the screening.
Kristen's co-star Maria Bello was full of praise for the young actress.
"I have to say I saw Kristen in Into The Wild and was so impressed with her depth and integrity and was so thrilled to do this film with her, which I think she's amazing in," she said.
"I think the Twilight thing is just like a bunch of bells and whistles because she's going to have a fantastic career because she's really great at what she does."
Kristen filmed the sweet tear-jerker almost two years ago before shooting Twilight, but only now has the movie secured distribution in select cities in America.
Director Udayan Prasad said he was pleased to finally be getting the movie out there. "A year and a half of frustration and at last it's going to reach an audience!"
He said Kristen's talent had shone from their first meeting.
"She walked into the room and there was just something about Kristen, she's a great enigma, she has a wonderful presence, you can see. She looks great on camera, she's very bright and mature way beyond her years, she is very serious about her work."
But the filmmaker confessed he hasn't managed to see much of her since the vampire movies came along. "I don't think any of us have had the chance to keep in touch with her because she's been so busy, but I've met her again today and she's more wonderful than ever," he laughed.
