This may come as a shock, but Kristen Stewart is turning 31 years old on Friday, April 9. The actress was only 18 when she starred in the first Twilight movie, which means it has been more than 12 years since it premiered! Wow, it feels like just yesterday that we were watching Edward Cullen and Jacob Black duke it out over Bella Swan, and we cannot believe how fast time has flown by!
For those who forgot, the flick premiered on November 21, 2008, and it also starred Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Billy Burke and more. It was about a high school student whose life got pretty complicated after she fell in love with a vampire. Especially because her best friend (who was a werewolf) fell for her, making it one of the most intense love triangles of all time. It was definitely a huge part of a lot of our childhoods, so the fact that it’s been more than a decade since it hit screens is seriously blowing our minds.
But wait, what is the cast of Twilight up to these days, you ask? Well, in honor of Stewart’s birthday, we decided to investigate and boy, have they all changed a lot! Here’s what the stars are doing now…
