I don't know if anyone has brought this up yet, but she has A LOT of AS symptoms. I mean, just watch an interview with her and it's kind of like, WHOA, you know? She's incredibly socially awkward and the way she thinks and talks about things, to me, isn't how an NT would talk/think.

Thoughts?

Never heard of her myself.
Only public figure I have ever believed might be aspie is Morrissey, the singer.

She's Bella in Twilight, so she's pretty big all over, and while I really could care less about that movie, I can't help but notice how she acts in interviews and in public, it's not really "normal". And yeah, I probably should have posted a link to something. What made that possible AS scenario pop into my head was once I saw her on the MTV Movie Awards. (It's about a minute in)

That was a lovely scene where she dropped the award :!:

I don't win MTV awards but I do that with mugs and cup ALL the time :D

I've never seen it and I don't have any plans to watch it.

Why do you think Aspies in particular should avoid this show?

You don't sound like you are a fan :jester:

She uses sarcasm. Talks fine. Seems to look at the person, suggesting eye contact. Uses hands while talking.

She seems to move around a bit, however. More indicative that she is nervous.

lol, probably because it's terrible.
Also, a less mean reason might be that it's super relationshippy. D: Not really an AS type thing, is it?

Anyway.. she seemed pretty normal in that interview. I mean, she's just not really one of those super perky actors, so I wouldn't expect her to be acting all girly and energetic. (Like a lot of actresses act in interviews.) But she seems quite comfortable and she's speaking easily and her expressions and movements all seem normal to me.
