The 31-year-old actress showed off her fiery new 'do as she prepared to play Julianne Moore's daughter in the upcoming drama, Still Alice. Sporting a grey T-shirt, a black jacket, and a pair of skinny jeans tucked into some funky-looking boots, Bosworth appeared ready to do business. One of her other costars, Kristen Stewart, was also on hand as well. The Twilight highlight portrays Bosworth's sister in the flick.

"...I have no idea what I'm doing, and that's kind of how I love it," said Stewart. "I had no idea 'Twilight' was going to be huge. Certain movies I've done I thought were going to be amazing did nothing. So it's fun not having so much control. It's kind of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants lifestyle—it's fun, but it's scary as fuck.
"If it's not scary, it's usually—you kind of have to step back and go, 'You're probably making this decision because it's right on paper.' But unless you get that irking fear, it's not right..."

It looks like Kristen Stewart is happy to be back at work. The 23-year-old actress stepped out on the NYC set of her new movie Still Alice earlier today grinning from ear to ear. Bundled up in two shirts and a black denim jacket paired with red pants, sneakers and dark sunglasses, K.Stew was snapped arriving to set while carrying a backpack. Stewart was all smiles while walking down the Big Apple street as she munched on an Apple and sipped on a green juice. Still Alice, which also stars Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin and Kate Bosworth, tells the story of a psychologist who discovers that she's suffering from an early onset of Alzheimer's disease.

Kristen Stewart is on the opposite coast of her La home to shoot Still Alice in NYC, but her routine seems to be consistent. On Monday, the actress picked up a healthy juice, just like she did with friends last month, smiling and eating an apple as she arrived on her new film's set. Dressed in a denim jacket, maroon jeans, sunglasses, and sneakers, Kristen looked cute and comfortable in spite of the cold weather and wind that blew her hair around. It's been a few weeks since we saw her out and about - the last time she made the rounds, she was fresh off a whirlwind trip to Paris, where she shot her first-ever Chanel campaign. We're excited to see what else she does during her time in the city that never sleeps, since she'll definitely be spending a lot of time with Julianne Moore, who plays her mother in the indie drama, »

Kristen Stewart looks like an edgy Disney princess. Sitting across from her at a posh suite decorated with her recent campaign for Balenciaga's Rosabotanica fragrance at the Bowery Hotel in NYC, I am taken with her charisma. She has creamy (dare I say snowy?) white skin that she credits to her lifelong addiction to Proactiv, soulful green eyes outlined with a smudge of smoky eye shadow, and a curvaceous, rose-hued mouth. Juxtaposed with her delicate features is her enviable, naturally beachy hair, casually thrown to one side and spilling over her light denim button-down, which she paired with dark denim jeans. If she passed me on the street in a hat, sunglasses, and puffy coat, I would probably mistake her for another petite brunette New Yorker. She's that girl-next-door. But she's undeniably charming, and as she earnestly answers all my beauty questions, I feel myself rooting for her, just as »
