She's emo's pin-up girl, the perfect Bella, but Kristen Stewart also knows how to give the finger to Hollywood by tackling real roles in real movies. For someone who's as reluctant a celebrity as she clearly is, Kristen Stewart more or less leaves it up to her hair to speak for her.
Just as her new movie, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, opened in South Africa, the actress caused a major cybersurge when she turned up for an interview with David Letterman sporting a head of chic, auburn hair.
Seconds after the 20-year-old strode onto the set of The Late Show, clad in a one-shoulder little black dress, the bloggers were at it: "Kristen Stewart debuts new hairstyle: love it or loathe it?" demanded a gazillion blogsites and, seconds later, a gazillion-plus pundits were weighing in.
It had been no different when Stewart was first seen out and about in 2009 with her hairdo during filming for the biopic, The Runaways.
"Kristen's got a mullet," shrieked the tabloids before those in the know scrambled to archly correct the writers of the horrified online posts that it was actually a "glam-rock shag" favoured by the guitarist for The Runaways, Joan Jett, whom Stewart had been cast to play.
It's no real surprise to find Stewart happy to let her hair ratchet up media space for her: no matter what she does, the actress can't properly escape the moody, twitchy, lip-bitingbox she's been shoved into since her career went supersonic on the back of the first Twlight movie in 2008.
