Kristen Stewart Explains Christmas

Jess’s Team Pick:

What do Bella from Twilight and the Virgin Mary have in common? Faux Kristen Stewart (comedian Laura MacDonald) awkwardly explains the origin of Christmas.

“One thing [eye flutter] I know about… [swallow] women who are pregnant is [hair touch] they’re like they rub their stomachs constantly. I know that because that’s how I played Bella. Like, you just rub your stomach and then you give this freaked-out look, like… [silent gasp].”

And just for shits and giggles:

  1. Thank you for the LOLZ… Laura McDonald is a genius. And I posted the Christmas video to my FB, which is sure to offend numerous conservative relatives while entertaining my Twilight-hating friends. WIN.

  2. I’m not a fan of her acting but I do like Kristen Stewart. I also like that she’s half Australian like me :D My dad saw a picture of her once and asked who it was cause, “She’s pretty.” *Omar Little voice* INDEED.

  3. I definitely thought that was ACTUALLY her for a while. I was sitting here like “d’awww, she’s so awkwar- wait a second…”

  4. Bahahaha that declarative sentences-into-questions thing is such an Aussie trait!!
    I was taken in too, but wondered when did KStew become closer to my size.

    • I know. She really IS Aussie that girl. I really ‘get’ her in an Aussie-to-Aussie way. You know what I mean I’m sure ;)

      • KStew should just come back to Queensland on the excuse of visiting her mum and visit my pants instead.

  5. My friend said Bella/Kristen remind her a lot of me and I don’t know if I should be flattered or offended. I haven’t seen any films she plays in but in youtube-clips she’s either weird or it’s somebody parodying her weridness (like these clips) (brilliantly).

  6. I. love. these. videos. It is uncanny how well Laura Macdonald imitates Kristen Stewart. I used to be so appalled at how bad KStew’s acting was in all of the twilight movies, but have any of you seen the most recent one, breaking dawn part 1? I was impressed. She was pretty good!!!!!
