CelebStoner Kristen Stewart has come a long way since  Adventureland. Today, the 31-year-old actress received an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of Lady Di in Spencer.

Stewart is also one of the few LBTGQ actors to be nominated.

Before she became a big movie star, Stewart wore pot-leaf bikinis and was photgraphed smoking pot.

Born in 1990 in Los Angeles to parents who work in the movie and television industry (she oftens refer to her dad, John, as a hippie), Stewart started her professional acting career when she was just 11. She first drew raves for her role as Tracy in Sean Penn's Into the Wild in 2007, then established herself as Bella Swan in the five Twilight movies.

She and Jesse Eisenberg teamed up on two stoner movies: Adventureland in 2009 (Stewart's Em bakes infused cookies) and American Ultra in 2015. Stewart also played Marylou in On the Road in 2012

In 2009, the tabloids claimed Stewart "courts controversy in marijuana leaf bikini." This was followed by photos of her smoking a pipe on a stoop.

In September, Stewart was seen leaving the MOTA pot shop on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles wearing an Oasis t-shirt and carrying a white paper bag.
