It’s been two years since the end of Twilight and that tabloid hullabaloo. Now, the actress is back with a trio of standout performances in indie films. She opens up about her latest chapter.

She’s been forged in the crucible of Hollywood, enduring a polarizing film franchise (Twilight), tabloid controversy, and incessant scrutiny—and emerged all the wiser.
These days, she’s decidedly more Joan Jett than Bella Swan.
