The dedicated Kristen Stewart fans out there are likely very well aware that she wears colored contact lenses for her role as Bella Swan in the "Twilight" movies. And in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2," Stewart dons the amber lenses her co-stars Robert Pattinson, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Jackson Rathbone and Kellan Lutz have been wearing for years as part of their official Cullen vampire clan costuming.

When MTV News caught up with Stewart recently, we asked about that experience and she revealed that, although she's experienced with contacts, her new vampire ones weren't much fun to wear.

"They are worse. The yellow ones sort of limit your vision even more, and so you feel a little bit more closed off," she said. "That is one thing I can't wait to say goodbye to, is the contacts. They just kill you. [They give you] dead face."

Pattinson recently told us he was delighted that his co-star had to suffer with the rest of them. "She's like, 'I wear contact lenses. Why do you always complain about yours?' " Pattinson said. "When she finally wore them and then was complaining about them every second of the day, it was kind of satisfying."

Stewart said the yellow lenses were totally worth the trouble, because she was so excited to play the vampire version of Bella.

"I've been waiting. To see her thrive anytime, it's — she's always so full of something that she knows, and it's like, at this point, you finally go, 'Oh, she was right,' and she can also go, 'OK, great, I'm not crazy, this was supposed to happen.' "

Stewart said Bella's previous feelings that she was different from others are validated in the final film. "The whole vampire thing, I wasn't excited to be white and all that; I was really more excited to finally get her there, because she wants it so bad."

Robert Pattinson Relishes Kristen Stewart’s Contact-Lens Discomfort

Stewart didn't understand why her co-star complained about his 'Twilight' vampire contacts until she had to wear her own.

Aside from ending what has been roughly five years of hard work and incredibly pale skin, "Breaking Dawn" brought a different type of satisfaction to Robert Pattinson. The end of the "Twilight Saga" meant that his co-star Kristen Stewart would finally understand the pain he's had to endure the entire time they've spent shooting the films.

It's not a great spoiler to say that Stewart's Bella will become a bloodthirsty, red-eyed vampire at some point during the two-part finale, whose first installment opens on November 18. This has been a long time coming for Bella, the fans and, it turns out, Pattinson.

Getting into character meant a change of eye color for Stewart and some vindication for her co-star. In the nicest way possible, Pattinson explained to MTV News' Josh Horowitz that knowing Stewart would have to experience the discomfort of his vampire contact lenses was "a great feeling."

Stewart had her own set of contacts to wear as the human version of Bella to turn her eyes brown, but those apparently did not hurt, unlike the gold contacts that Pattinson had worn since the beginning of the series. "She's like, 'I wear contact lenses. Why do you always complain about yours?' " Pattinson said.

When Stewart finally did change into her vampire eyes, Pattinson got what he had been waiting for. "When she finally wore them and then was complaining about them every second of the day," he admitted, "it was kind of satisfying."

Foo Fighters ‘Frustrated’ After Fans Turned Away From London Show

After hundreds of Foo Fighters fans were denied entry to the band's Tuesday show at London's O2 Arena, Dave Grohl and company issued a statement blaming "unscrupulous secondary ticket agencies" for the widespread pre-gig confusion.

The Concrete and Gold sextet, along with promoter SJM and the O2 venue, wrote they were "frustrated and saddened that, despite their best efforts," tickets wound up on the secondary ticket market. "Unfortunately, this meant a small number of fans purchasing bogus tickets from these unscrupulous outlets did not get into the sold-out show," they wrote, per NME. "Foo Fighters, The O2 and SJM strongly advise and sincerely hope that in the future ALL fans buy tickets only from legitimate sites to ensure they are not defrauded out of their hard-earned money."

Numerous fans were reportedly turned away by the venue after failing to present a photo ID that matched the name on their booking. After customers complained, security eventually allowed entrance to ticket holders without matching ID – but many of said fans had already left the arena by that point.

"Fans that bought tickets through our official box offices had to agree that they were buying named tickets prior to purchase," SJM said in a statement. "This was not a 'last minute' decision but was clear from the outset. We did this to prevent tickets being re-sold at extortionate prices. The vast majority of fans understood and adhered to this.

"As event organizers of last night's concert, we implemented a policy from onsale to limit secondary reselling of tickets," the promoters continued. "The only official outlets were the venue box office and SEE Tickets and all purchasers were clearly informed that ID checks would be in place on entry."

The O2 added, "Some ticket holders who arrived without ID or who had bought through secondary sites were unfortunately left disappointed."

The Evening Standard spoke to several fans who were turned away by the venue – including some who paid over £200 ($270.74) per ticket. Tori Rosenbaum purchased four tickets and offered them to her brother after she couldn't attend.

"I totally understand the thing of stamping out touting, but this is punishing actual fans and is so easily avoidable by saying bring a copy of the ID or card that bought the tickets, or their confirmation, or anything," she said. "It's a shambles. It's not even the money that bothers me, it's knowing that people are having their excitement crushed."

Even some fans who purchased tickets through official resale partner Stubhub were refused entry. "At the request of the band, all tickets are being verified for tonight's show at The O2," an O2 spokesman told The Evening Standard. "All fans are required to show proof of ID. This does mean that some who have bought through secondary sites, including our partner Stubhub may not be able to see the show. Ticket buyers should contact their original point of purchase if they encounter issues."

On Wednesday, a Stubhub representative said that ticket-holders who were denied entry for the concert would be eligible for refunds, calling the ID policy "not fair to customers."

Watch Chance the Rapper Announce $2.2 Million Fund for Chicago Schools

Chance the Rapper announced Friday that his SocialWorks organization has raised $2.2 million for the Chicago Public Schools' arts programs.

"Quality education for public schools is the most important investment a community can make," the rapper said at Chicago's Harold Washington Cultural Center, four days before the school year begins in the city.

"So today, all of us at SocialWorks are excited to take our biggest, boldest step yet and announce our first-ever grants from the New Chance Fund. Today we're giving a new chance to kids in 20 more schools across our city."

The donations will be spread be 20 schools in the Chicago public school system, with each school receiving $100,000 over the course of three years.

Chance also announced the inaugural Twilight Awards, which will take place in Chicago in June 2018. The event, hosted by James Corden and featuring special guest performances, will celebrate "teachers, parents, principals, and students that convey leadership."

For the announcement, the rapper wore a black turtleneck tucked into his faded jeans, a nod to late Apple CEO Steve Jobs he noted. Chance the Rapper opened his presentation by discussing two things that have weighed upon him since his return to Chicago after his latest tour.

"Twice, just in the last month that I've been back, I've had someone tell me that they were going to shoot me," Chance said. "This is obviously just talk; both were small altercations and I could tell immediately upon point of contact that these young people had a chip on their shoulder. That they felt undervalued or cheated. And that's the way Chicago is."

At the same time, the rapper has seen how much his young daughter has grown and has begun weighing early education programs for her. "These are the two most pressing things on my mind: The thought of finally sending my daughter to school, and the unease of the city she's entering into."

Following an initial $1 million donation in March, SocialWorks will provide another $1.2 million in addition to Chance the Rapper's other charitable efforts, including providing 30,000 Chicago schoolchildren with backpacks stuffed with school supplies.
