Twilight star Kristen Stewart appeared on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” this week talking about her new rescue dog, Bernie.

Rumor has it the actress and her on-again, off-again beau Robert Pattinson adopted the pooch together.

The actress said Bernie knew just how to steal her heart. Stewart said, “She was very emotionally manipulative. She really milked it. Then I got her home, and she was like, ‘I have arrived.’”

This is Stewart’s second dog, as the Twilight couple have also adopted a rescue dog named Bear from a high-kill shelter in New Orleans, LA. In Stewart’s interview with Ripa, she gushed about Bear, saying, “He’s my child, I love him.”

Stewart says Bernie was “very comfortable instantly.” She continued, “taking Bear’s stuff. I was like, ‘You need to slow your roll, girl. You need to watch it!'”

While Bernie wasted no time making herself at home with Forbes’ highest-paid actress, Bear didn’t fare as well with the adjustment.

Ripa asked Stewart if her intentions were to provide a playmate for Bear, but the 22-year-old simply said, “I’m just sort of obsessed with rescuing the pooches.”
