Robert Pattinson has certainly moved on from his undead days, and it seems that vampires are a distant part of Kristen Stewart's past, too.

In a recent interview, the 24-year-old actress agreed wholeheartedly agreed with the reporter about the Twilight franchise seeming far from her mind. "Completely," she said (as excepted by Bay News 9). "I only have to think about that when someone asks me."

She might not be thinking about that, aka the five films she starred in between 2008 and 2012, but that's not to say K.Stew's not grateful for the opportunity to play Bella Swan.

Last October, E! News asked the actress how life had changed post-Twilight. "It's difficult to answer that question," she said. "On an exceptionally obvious note, it's opened a lot of doors, but I've become who I am because of that. It was five years of my life."

The Still Alice star spoke more about her Twilight experience earlier this year with Late Night's Seth Meyers. "Those are my high school years. I am in no way choosing indie movies to step away from it," she said. "There's a through-line in all of my projects. I don't know what I'm doing. I very impulsively go to one thing to the next to the next to the next. So, Twilight blew up, and I still look at it as being something that made me who I am. And in no way am I distancing myself. I'm just trying to do cool stuff."

One big project coming up in the pipeline for Kristen? Starring in an upcoming Woody Allen film alongside Bruce Willis and Jesse Eisenberg!

This big casting news came right on the heels of K.Stew winning Best Supporting Actress at the 40th César Film Awards for her role in Clouds of Sils Maria. In doing this, she became the first American actress in 30 years (!) to win France's equivalent of an Oscar.

It seems safe to say Kristen's accomplishing that goal of "trying to do cool stuff"!
