Light it on Fire: Kristen's First ET Interview

Kristen Stewart is poised to ride into battle in Snow White and the Huntsman this Friday, and we're flashing back to her first-ever on-set interview with ET when she was just 12 years old!
Following the success of playing Jodie Foster's daughter in David Fincher's 2002 nail biter Panic Room, Kristen was picked to play the daughter of Dennis Quaid and Sharon Stone in the thriller Cold Creek Manor.
In October of 2002, we caught up with Kristen and her onscreen brother, fellow child star Ryan Wilson. The pair talked about working with snakes, playing the offspring of Quaid and Stone, and the types of movies they like.
"I don't really go see the stuff where you take your two-year-old brother," said Kristen, displaying an early version of her fidgety self.
In Cold Creek Manor, Kristen's family buys an old foreclosed manor in the countryside, only to find themselves terrorized by the former owner. Asked what she'd do if she had her own house and wanted to get someone out, Kristen replied, "I'd, like, say that it's haunted or something. I'd, like, pull the Scooby-Doo thing. I don't know. … Or I'd, like, light it on fire."
When the ET interviewer points out that if Kristen lit the house on fire, then she'd burn it down, the future Twilight star feigns scratching her head and ponders the consequences… Cute!
