For many years Kristen Stewart was practically an episode of Married At First Sight come to life.
She was scoffed at, labelled problematic, and accused of wheeling out some pretty bad behaviour in a bid to score attention and headlines.
And yet, we couldn't stop dissecting her every move.
When the now 33-year-old actress first stepped into the Hollywood fishbowl at the age of eight, she was immediately labelled by critics as a 'serious actress'.
Even though she was still at an age where tying her shoes correctly felt like an achievement.
One of the Oscar nominee's first notable appearances was in the independent film The Safety of Objects, where she starred as the daughter of a troubled single mother played by Patricia Clarkson. It was a role that put her name on the critical radar, but it wasn't until she starred opposite Jodie Foster in David Finchers' hit film Panic Room at the age of 10, that the positive reviews and the award nominations began to flood in.
Up until 2007, Kristen bounced between being a solidly working actress whose name regularly appeared in the credits of well-regarded indie films, with a handful of lukewarm studio releases in the mix, and a 'regular person'.
At least until the day director Catherine Hardwicke visited her on the set of Adventureland for an informal screen test.
The result of the visit was Kristen being immediately handpicked for a role in Catherine's new vampire teen romance movie. In a part that would make it impossible for her to ever again hide from the spotlight.
