Kristen Stewart has never been heard saying anything negative about the Twilight movies. And, as always, the 27-year-old had some great things to say about working on the blockbuster franchise.

Speaking on the red carpet of The Museum of Modern Art Film Benefit in New York City on Monday, 13 November, Stewart said that the experiences she gained from working on those movies made her who she is today.

"Every part that I've ever played has shaped me in such a significant way..." she was quoted as saying by E! News about the Twilight films.

She added, "It's made me who I am. I know from an outsider's perspective you might have something to say about that, like in general. But I kind of view it as every other thing that I've invested in and really loved. And I'm lucky to have had that experience."

Stewart also revealed that although the experiences meant a lot to her, she would "never really look back at her life and go, 'What did that mean?'"

When told that Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was released in theatres five years ago this week, Stewart said, "I didn't realise that it was five years, that's trippy."

Stewart also revealed her feelings for Julianne Moore at the event, saying she wished she was her mother.

"I met you ages ago, but you're like my work mom... No disrespect, but I wish you were my mom. It's something deeply personal," Stewart said, according to Vanity Fair.

Meanwhile, Moore, who was honoured for her career at the event, took a dig at US President Donald Trump, saying, "We are currently living in very difficult times where our very humanity feels threatened and dismissed by a leader who continues to demean, berate, ignore, and debase us all... And our refusal to accept this behaviour is normal."
