Twilight-famed star Kristen Stewart is turning towards directing movies. The 26-year-old star told in an interview that she’s working on a full-length movie following her directorial debut with the short film Come Swim at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

“That is the most satisfying thing I have ever done,” the star said of directing. “As an actor, you’re like a little thing that can help everyone feel this, but when it comes from you — it’s like validation in the most ultimate. You’re not alone. Like, ‘I see you, girl. I see you, and I get it.’” Stewart said.
