London: `Twilight` star Kristen Stewart is reportedly training hard to get a muscular look for an action movie.

The 23-year-old actress is reportedly a martial arts expert and is reinventing herself by training with a top combat solider for her new film, reported Daily Star.

"No-one knows this but Kristen is a martial arts expert, she`s practised karate since her fifth birthday. Teen romance roles like `Twilight` are her past," a source said.

"She has learnt brutal torture skills for her new movie to prove she`s a great actress and not just Robert Pattinson`s ex-girlfriend," the source added.

Stewart has already developed an impressive six-pack by training with a soldier from the Israeli army who fought in the Lebanese war.
