Kristen Stewart Hangs Out With 'Twilight' Co-Stars at 'Elle' Women In Hollywood Awards

Kristen Stewart bares her shoulders in a long black dress while attending the 2016 ELLE Women In Hollywood Awards at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles in Beverly Hills on Monday (October 24).

The 26-year-old actress was joined by her Twilight co-stars Anna Kendrick, Dakota Fanning, and Nikki Reed, making it a mini Twilight reunion!

The Elle Women in Hollywood Awards are held to honor eight female stars who have made achievements for women in the industry, each featured on their own cover of the magazine. The event was presented by L’Oreal Paris.

“I’m a kid from the Valley. My mom was a script supervisor and my dad was an AD. I’m obsessed with the filmmaking process.” Kristen said during her speech. “I became obsessed with the search for something real, in tiny precise moments or splattered messy ones, and the precious and insane ways that we create those moments that make us feel less alone or at least valid. … Without that, we wouldn’t make art.” Watch the rest of her speech below!

Also in attendance at the event were Vanessa Hudgens, Brittany Snow, Lucy Hale, and Niecy Nash.

Besides Kristen and Anna, other honorees included Lupita Nyong’o, Amy Adams, Aja Naomi King, Felicity Jones, Kathy Bates, and Helen Mirren.

Dakota Fanning Reveals She's Been Mistaken for an Olsen Twin!

Dakota Fanning sits down with Harry Connick, Jr. for an interview on his show Harry, airing today on NBC.

The 22-year-old American Pastoral actress told Harry she’s once been mistaken for an Olsen twin!

“There’s one man that’s on my corner, I haven’t seen him in awhile but I used to see him all the time and he would scream at me. I didn’t know if he was talking to me but then I realized he was. He would scream at me, ‘Hey Olsen. Hey Olsen.’ And I was like Oh my God, he thinks I’m….he must think I’m an Olsen. I was like I’m not going to engage back because then I’m the crazy person saying I’m not an Olsen walking down the street, so I just let him think that,” Dakota said.

Tune in to watch her full interview.

Dakota Fanning & Ewan McGregor Stop by Build Series To Talk 'American Pastoral'

Dakota Fanning joins Valorie Curry and Ewan McGregor for a group pic backstage at the Build Series at AOL HQ in New York City on Thursday (October 20).

Together, the cast opened up about their new movie, American Pastoral, which Ewan also directed.

“It’s a first-person story of a woman who goes through the radicalization of these political groups. And it’s not just about these groups and the politics and the culture of America at the time, but it’s really specifically about what it was to be a woman in those groups—how marginalizing that was and the ways in which they would try to exert power or authority and how they were suppressed within their radical, marginalized groups,” Valorie shared with Vogue recently about the importance of the film.

Check out the vid below on why Dakota wanted to be in the film herself.

Dakota Fanning Admits to Being a 'Bit of a Control Freak'

Dakota Fanning looks positively exquisite on the new cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit.

Here’s what the 22-year-old American Pastoral star had to share with the mag:

On saying no: “Being empowered to say no is pretty cool. Even when I was little, any of my friends or family would say, ‘Dakota doesn’t do anything she doesn’t want to.’ And I don’t. I’m very sensitive to energy and vibes, and if a vibe is off somewhere, then I’m out. I’ll just go. If it’s not working for me? Just no.”

On her relationship with her actress sister Elle: “People unfortunately love to see conflict. And if it’s between family? Between sisters? Even better. The assumption that we’re really competitive, that people even ask that, is horrible. It’s implied our family [is] torn apart by jealousy. It shows people don’t pay attention to who we are, just surface stuff: sisters, blond, blue-eyed, kind of the same age… We don’t even think we look alike! Our personalities are worlds apart; we both feel that, we both know that. Anyone who knows us knows that.”

On not wanting others to take care of her: “It actually comes from being a bit of a control freak. I don’t like anyone doing anything for me. There are all these people on set who want to take care of you – ‘Can I get you water? Do you want this? Are you hungry? Are you tired? Do you want a Coke? Are you cold?’ It comes from a lovely place, and some [actors] need that, and that’s fine. Me, I feel like if you give into that, you become this person who doesn’t know how to do anything for yourself. I take a lot of pride in [being self-sufficient]. I’m a proud person.”

While on The Late Late Show the night before, Dakota revealed she sometimes gets confused for an Olsen twin!

“I watched all their movies that [the Olsen twins] made. We all went to the same high school at different times, and I’m friends with their younger sister [Elizabeth],” she explained.

Dakota added, “It’s funny, they come into my life a lot because there’s a man that lives — well, I don’t know where he lives — but he stands on my corner in New York where my apartment is, and he always would say to me, ‘Hey Olsen! Hey Olsen!’”

FYI: Dakota is wearing a Dolce&Gabbana dress.
