Over the past couple weeks, THG has been counting down the stars that made 2012 such a memorable year, from their sex tapes to their Billboard hits to their nude photos and royal babies.
We ranked Kate Middleton at #4, followed by Taylor Swift and then Rihanna at #2. Who does that leave as our undisputed Celebrity of the Year?
The actress starred in two blockbusters this year: Snow White and the Huntsman and Breaking Dawn Part 2. She also established some indie cred via On the Road.
But let’s face it: these roles are not the main reason Stewart made so many headlines in 2012.
Instead, Kristen’s most buzzed-about accomplishment (perhaps for the rest of her years) will be her affair with Rupert Sanders, a story made for this tabloid age and made even more unprecedented when Stewart actually came out and admitted to the scandal!
Her statement and public apology to Robert Pattinson may go down as the year’s most shocking moment.
This relationship – previously kept under wraps as much as possible by the duo involved – was suddenly front page news. Would they get back together? What, exactly, happened between Stewart and Sanders? How would it affect the Breaking Dawn box office?
In the end, the film fared well and Kristen and Rob appear back together.
Other numbers/facts related to Stewart’s big year include:
- She became the face of Balenciaga perfume in June.
- She ranked #7 on AskMen’s list of Top 99 Women.
- She earned $34.5 million, more than any actress over the past 12 months.
- She was named one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood.
Without The Twilight Saga, but with Pattinson, what does 2013 hold for Kristen Stewart? Marriage? Pregnancy? Another hit film?
