Kristen Stewart: Bella and Edward's Breakup Was More Like a Death

It's no secret that young girls everywhere are counting down the hours until New Moon hits theaters on Friday. But the second film in the Twilight saga is definitely not your typical fluffy tween obsession: It's darker, edgier and full of heartbreak.

"When you're told after a really daring move that you were really wrong, you feel really stupid," Kristen Stewart, who plays heroine Bella Swan, tells iVillage about her character. "And that's where we find her in New Moon. She's sort of lost everything that she thought completed her."

In the beginning of the movie, Bella goes through an emotional breakup, but the 19-year-old actress says she wasn't drawing from her own life. "I can't really draw from personal experience," says Kristen, who's been romantically linked to costar Robert Pattinson. Reading Stephenie Meyer's New Moon book was the only inspiration she needed.

"It's written really well," Kristen says. "It's the worst breakup I've ever read -- ever. Instead of a breakup scene, I called it a death scene."

Check out our exclusive video to hear Kristen dish about her onscreen chemistry with Robert and share her thoughts on the "hot" Bella Swan Barbie doll.
