Kristen Stewart reunited with Mackenzie Foy, the child actress who played her character Bella Swan's daughter Renesmee in the 'Twilight' saga, almost seven years later. Foy, who was merely ten back when the first and second parts of 'Breaking Dawn' were being filmed, is now 17 years old.
The two actresses met at the Chanel Beauty House in Los Angeles on February 28 as part of the 'We Love Coco' beauty bash, and were joined by Cindy Crawford, Chloe Kim, Billie Lourd, Ava Phillippe, and the Haims, who promoted the brand's new lipsticks. The party also featured a performance by Tove Lo.
Foy played the dhampir (half-vampire, half-human) child of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen in the final two movies of the franchise, who gains supernatural abilities, including the ability to show her thoughts through touch and break through people's mental defenses.
'Breaking Dawn: Part 1' and 'Breaking Dawn: Part 2' in the 'Twilight' series both received negative reviews from critics, but the two films went on to gross over $1.5 billion worldwide. Foy eventually won the Worst Onscreen Couple Razzie along with Taylor Lautner at the 2013 Golden Raspberry Awards.
Despite the negative reviews, Foy went on to star in Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar' that received positive reviews from critics and managed to land the role of Clara in Disney's 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms' that will also star Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman, scheduled for release in November this year.
Stewart, on the other hand, is looking to play a role in Sony's reboot of 'Charlie's Angels' that will be directed by Elizabeth Banks. She told ET Online, "I would love to do it. I hope that that comes together. You never really know that you're going to be making a movie until you're, like, standing on that set."
Stewart also expressed her desire to work with Banks, saying, "I'm an enormous fan of Liz Banks and I think that she's the perfect person to tell that story in this era. I would back her absolutely all the way." She added, "The movie should still be fun, but if you ground it and make it about women that really know how to help each other, it'll be perfect to release now. We're all together and strong," in reference to the recent Time's Up movement.
