The actress has been in a similar situation to her character Bella Swan

Kristen Stewart understands how her Twilight character Bella Swan found herself in a love triangle with vampire Edward Cullen and werewolf Jacob Black.

The actress told fans in Tokyo yesterday that she doesn’t think Bella was wrong for developing emotions for two people at the same time.

‘As a woman I think it’s really important not to discredit feelings,’ said Kristen, 22.

‘There weren’t too many difficulties with the whole love triangle thing.’

Kristen ended up in an awkward romantic situation of her own when she admitted to cheating on her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson with married director Rupert Sanders in July.

She’s pleased Bella resolves her issues with Edward and Jacob in the final film, which is due out in November.

‘I mean, she needs Jacob in her life. He needs her in the same way…if you can get past conventions and what everyone else is thinking then you can have what you want,’ said Kristen.

‘They get to a point where they get to have everything and that’s nice.’
