The actress — who plays Bella in the vampire movie franchise Twilight — apparently keeps pouches of garlic everywhere — including in her car, her dressing room and on her bedroom door.
“People are always remarking how smelly it is, but Kristen doesn’t care,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer. “She’s been afraid of vampires for years, even before she signed up to do the movies, and read somewhere that garlic is supposed to repel them.”
Although Kristen might be scared of vampires, the 19-year-old — who’s currently dating her Twi costar Robert Pattinson — does admit she finds them sexy.
“Well, classically vampires are meant to draw you in, just to the point where they have you in a complete submitting state to where they can kill you,” Kristen recently revealed.
“So that’s a bit sexy, to give yourself to something to accept, to let something take over. It’s forbidden fruit, something you can’t have but you want more.”
