Kristen Stewart was spotted enjoying a casual post-Christmas lunch with friends in Los Angeles.

The Twilight actress is spending the holiday week with her new pals.

The barefaced 24-year-old kept it cool and casual, as she went to the restaurant Forage in LA's trendy Silver Lake district, reported Mail Online.

The Twilight star was joined by assistant-turned best friend Alicia Cargile and two others.

The group was reportedly seen enjoying their meal while seated at the cafe's outdoor patio.

Kristen was spotted grabbing healthy drinks with Alicia.

The actress was seen in a relaxed holiday mood, as she prepares for the upcoming release of her new film Still Alice.

She portrays the daughter of a renowned linguistics professor, played by Julianne Moore, who is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in the movie.

The role is special for Stewart, who recently revealed how the character was not that different from who she really is.

"There was no effort on my part to hide myself," she told IndieWire.

"All I tried to do with this part was to find myself and show myself. The best way to service this character was to be there honestly, so all affectations were meaningless. I could just have my own," she added

Still Alice is set for release on 16 January in the US.

Meanwhile, Kristen's ex-boyfriend, Robert Pattinson has planned to propose to current girlfriend FKA Twigs.

A new report claims that Pattinson's family adores Twigs, even more than Kristen Stewart.

A source told Hollywood Life, "Rob's family absolutely adores FKA twigs. His sisters have never seen him happier. Both Lizzy and Victoria totally approve of FKA twigs because they know how dedicated and committed she is to their brother."

"They love how easy going she is and how she really brings out the best in Rob — he's never been so at peace and blissful," the source added.
