She may be a longtime script director in Hollywood, but as it often goes, the well-known in Tinsel Town aren't usually known for their careers but their connections. And Jules Stewart has the ultimate connection to the A-lister set: She's Kristen Stewart's mother.
Being the "Twilight" star's mom means that she's also fair game for the tabloids. TMZ, among others, recently reported Jules Stewart's conflict with a neighbor over whether Stewart owns "wolves" as pets. A connection to "Twilight," perhaps? Stewart says they are wolf-hybrids and recently got a restraining order against the upset neighbor.
Perhaps that dispute led Stewart to buy a new home for herself and her pack. According to property records, she paid $990,000 at the end of April to buy an "East Coast traditional" off Valley Vista Boulevard in the Sherman Oaks district of Los Angeles.
Described as the "ultimate in casual living," the 2,308-square-foot home has the standard must-haves for a celeb home: pool, spa, a generous-size master suite and updated kitchen. The home won't need any updates, as the property includes recent upgrades to the roof, water heater, and exterior and interior paint.
Stewart, who made her directorial debut on the B-movie "K-11," also owns a home in Malibu, which she purchased for $4.8 million in 2011, and an apartment in Pasadena.
