Mackenzie Foy celebrated her birthday on the “Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon and guided him through the ins and outs of outer space and, closer to earth, her skill at Tae Kwon Do. Yes, she’s a black belt.

Foy is on the talk show circuit promoting her new movie “Interstellar,” with Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey.

Mackenzie, who turned 14 yesterday, made a mark in film with her appearance in the “Twilight” vampire series as the half-human half-vampire child of Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart).

Aside from “Interstellar,” she’s appearing in two television movies and another feature film “Black-Eyed Dog.” She’s also voicing a character in a 3D computer animated fantasy film, “The Little Prince,” with Marion Cotillard and James Franco.

On the show, Jimmy pulled out all the stops with birthday hats and root beer flavored cookies to celebrate Mackenzie’s birthday.

The young star revealed that she just got her black belt in Tae Kwon Do in September, and she showed Jimmy a few moves.
