Kristen Stewart has an obsession, but it’s not “Twilight” or rumored boyfriend Robert Pattinson. Thankfully, it’s one that saves lives.

Stewart was on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” yesterday talking about her new rescue dog named Bernie. (Aren’t we glad Ripa didn’t use the opportunity to make another unfortunate pit bull comment.) The actress said Bernie knew just how to play it to get adopted. She said, “She was very emotionally manipulative. She really milked it. Then I got her home, and she was like, ‘I have arrived.’”

Once home, the pooch didn’t waste any time getting situated. Stewart continued, “She was very comfortable instantly taking Bear’s stuff. I was like, ‘You need to slow your roll, girl. You need to watch it!’”

As for why the “Twilight” actress decided to adopt again, she said, “I’m just sort of obsessed with rescuing the pooches.” Hear that Twihards? Bella is all for saving lives. Head to your local shelter and help her save as many as possible.

Rumor is, Stewart adopted Bernie with on and off flame Robert Pattinson, but we can neither confirm nor deny those reports.
