In this kid-friendly flick, Stewart played Maddy, a girl who convinces her two best friends to break into a high-tech bank vault so she can get the money to pay for an operation her dad needs. (Fortunately, she followed this with a role in David Gordon Green’s southern thriller “Undertow,” opposite
Stewart, who played the cranky older sister in this family film, spent more than half the movie being cryogenically frozen. That was probably for the best. The movie only grossed $29 million.(Merrick Morton / Columbia Pictures)

Times film critic Betsy Sharkey writes: “With each new film role, her performances continue to deepen; more layers of a complicated interior life are exposed. Stewart treats acting as a craft and one that she is constantly honing, working almost nonstop since she began at age 8 -- 30 roles in 14 years.” (Sundance Selects / IFC)
Hey, Kristen Stewart, tell the paparazzi how you really feel.
The “On the Road” star, who’s never been a fan of this particular shade of limelight, went berserk when a shutterbug tried get an informative glimpse of the 23-year-old actress as she was standing by a Los Angeles building Monday, according to TMZ, which obtained the footage.
Stewart colorfully told the photographer — in a manner that isn’t fit to repeat on this particular news site — to go away. When he asked her why, she didn’t hold back.
“Because you’re a piece of ... and don’t deserve to breathe the same air I do,” she said.
It’s unclear what prompted the profanity-laced tirade, but it was very clear that Stewart was furious even before the camera started rolling.
KStew has fiercely guarded her personal life ever since she was launched to super-stardom with the wildly successful “Twilight” films. But her now-defunct romance with vampire-saga costar and off-screen love interest Robert Pattinson has further fueled the it-girl fire.
A clip from Monday’s footage shows the “Snow White and the Huntsman” star yelling next to a dumpster behind a fence, with another woman waiting out front. When the photographer proceeded to ask the actress about ex-boyfriend Pattinson, Stewart wised up, said nothing more and just followed a handler into a waiting vehicle. She and Pattinson reportedly called it quits last May after four years of dating.
Maybe she can text pal Katy Perry for a bit of solace?
