Kristen Stewart is set to play an entirely new role in Breaking Dawn Part 2. Not just a vampire, but a mother as well. And it turns out, Kristen recently became “mother” to a new addition in her life, a rescue dog named Bernie.
In a new interview with Kate Spencer from VH1, Kristen explains her real-life maternal instincts, admitting that she’s protective over her two dogs: Bear, the dog she adopted with Robert Pattinson that thankfully did not end in a nasty custody battle and Bernie, who she kind of mentioned in this recent Japanese TV show interview when she was asked what her treasure is. But in the new interview below, she confirms the happy news.
“I do have two dogs,” Kristen tells Spencer of her second canine addition. “I adopted Bernie when she was a bit older, so I feel like she’s kind of a roommate.”
The term ‘roommate’ is also exactly how she described her relationship with her cat Max to us during our interview with her in London for Snow White and the Huntsman. In that interview, she also described Bear as her child, which she repeated to Spencer.
“Bear is a child, I’ve raised him,” she says in the interview. “He was handed to me through a car window with one hand… on this movie actually.” She’s talking about the spontaneous decision to adopt him while shooting Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2 last year in New Orleans.
Other outlets such as Radar and The Huffington Post reported early this morning that Kristen is set to adopt another dog in the coming weeks, but clearly it’s already happened with the addition of Bernie to her family with Bear and Max, also known as Jella.
Fans will get to see Kristen’s maternal instincts on full display when Breaking Dawn Part 2 opens on November 16th. As for Bernie’s first public appearance, we’ll just have to wait for that.
