Kristen Stewart thinks she will be working for her on-screen daughter in the future.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 star has revealed she is completely smitten with her "amazing" young co-star Mackenzie Foy - who plays her daughter Renesmee in the new movie - and would love for the 12-year-old actress to direct her in a movie when she is older.
"She's like one of the coolest kids I've ever met. She use to always be like, 'I want to be a movie director.' I think every single member of the cast was like, 'Cool! Call me for a job because I will work for you!' She's amazing," Stewart said.
The 22-year-old actress - who wowed onlookers in a sparkling lace jumpsuit by Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad paired with Louis Vuitton heels - also paid tribute to her fans and admitted they kept her going over the past five years: "To sustain energy from one project for five years is pretty remarkable and we wouldn't have been able to do that if we were the only fans. But to turn up to here and have a million people doing that with you is insane and amazing. It's contagious. A once in a lifetime."
