Kristen Stewart fears assassination by ‘Twilight’ fans

Actress worries about red carpet security

Kristen Stewart, who plays Bella Swann in the Twilight movies, has admitted she worries about being killed by a zealous fan.

Speaking to Hello magazine, she confessed she has to “keep [herself] from crying sometimes” when on the red carpet due to her fears.

“I don’t feel very comfortable on the red carpet,” she said. “I look out there at a thousand people and I realize they could rush me and assassinate me. No security could protect me.”

Like co-stars Taylor Lautner, who plays werewolf Jacob Black, and Robert Pattinson, who plays vampire Edward Cullen, Stewart did not attend the UK premiere last night, citing work commitments.

Meanwhile, the actress was recently named number 66 on the Forbes Most Powerful Celebrities list.
