Actress Kristen Stewart made history last night

Huge congratulations are in order for actress Kristen Stewart today after her latest achievement.

The 24-year-old made history last night after becoming the first American actress to win a Cesar Award, the French equivalent of an Oscar.

Kristen picked up the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film Clouds of Sils Maria, which tells the story of an actress who agrees to take on a role in the movie remake of the play which made her famous in the first place.

Paying tribute to her co-star, French actress Juliette Binoche, as she accepted the award, Kristen shouted in French: “I love you Juliette!”

In an interview backstage after her win, the Twilight star admitted that she likes the French attitude towards filmmaking more than that of the States.

“The reasons why people make films here in France are very different from the reasons why people make movies in Hollywood. I prefer it here a little bit,” she said.

Needless to say, the star looked absolutely stunning in an haute couture strapless Chanel gown, belted at the waist and teamed with black heels.

Well done, Kristen!
