Kristen Stewart makes history

Kristen Stewart is the first ever American woman to have won France’s César Award.

Kristen Stewart has made cinematic history by winning a César Award.

The 24-year-old actress picked up the trophy in Paris, France on Friday for her work in Cloud of Sils Maria.

The César is the French equivalent to an Academy Award and Kristen is the first American woman to ever win one.

According to uniFrance Films’ Twitter account, Kristen was “ravaged by emotion when receiving” her award for best actress in a supporting role.

Cloud of Sils Maria, which is directed by Olivier Assayas, also stars Juliette Binoche and Chloë Grace Moretz. The picture centres on Juliette’s character, an actress who finds herself in an uncomfortable position after accepting a part in the revival of a play that launched her career more than 20 years earlier.

Kristen confirmed with Variety backstage at the Césars she will indeed be starring in another French movie, but she declined to provide any further details.

It appears she’ll be involved in France’s film industry for years ahead, as the star loves working in the country.

“The reasons why people make films here in France are very different from the reasons why people make movies in Hollywood and I prefer it here a little bit,” she told Variety.

Kristen became famous portraying Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga, but the star doesn’t think about Twilight any differently to the other movies she has taken on.

“I’m always asked about what type of things I want to do, and if I make decisions based on my last project,” Kristen told Interview magazine recently. "Say I do a big franchise movie about a vampire that falls in love with a normal girl. It’s like, ‘Now do you want to show them that you can be a real, serious actor?’ It’s like, ‘Was I not being a real, serious actor?’
