Her co-presenter, Daniel Radcliffe, smiled blithely and walked beside her, but never offered to give her a hand.
Maybe she wanted it that way, but he should have extended his hand.
Stewart, 22, walked gamely, but looked like she was in pain as she limped to the microphone. She must have wanted to make the appearance pretty badly. It may be her only chance to ever set foot on an Oscar stage.
There were some reports that Stewart would be a no-show because of her injury, but ever the trouper, she appeared on the red carpet with crutches.
She handed them to an assistant while she did her photo call and then was helped inside the theater.
But she was on her own when she took to the stage. She bobbed up and down as Radcliffe walked next to her. She audibly grunted when she got to the microphone before reading her lines.
Much was also made about whether boyfriend Robert Pattinson would show up to support her on the red carpet. He’s been in Australia filming his new movie “The Rover.” But Kristen still showed solidarity with her “Twilight” cast mate.
She wore the ring that Bella wore when she became engaged to Pattinson’s character Edward Cullen in the movie. If that’s not a sign of love, nothing is.
