Kristen Stewart News: The Indie Road

Kristen Stewart News
Kristen Stewart

April 3: Kristen Stewart news of a while back … In the above picture you can see none other than Kristen Stewart, a.k.a. Bella Swan a.k.a. Snow White a.k.a. KStew a.k.a. the second half of Robsten, at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Nov. 3, 2011. Stewart and fellow Twilight players Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner were present to get their hands dirty in wet cement.

Some were highly critical of the Twilighters becoming immortalized at the Chinese Theatre, but one of us at Alt Film Guide clearly disagreed with the naysayers. Among those who had their hands and/or feet set in cement before Stewart, Pattinson, and Lautner were Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Joan Crawford, Tyrone Power, Mary Pickford, Carmen Miranda, Daniel Radcliffe, Bette Davis, Jack Nicholson, Sylvester Stallone, Cher, and Doris Day.

This year, Kristen Stewart will be seen in three movies:

  • In June, Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman, with Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Ray Winstone, Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, Lily Cole, Vincent Regan, Noah Huntley, and Nick Frost. [See cool Kristen Stewart/Snow White and the Huntsman close-up.]
  • In November, Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, with Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Dakota Fanning, Nikki Reed, Michael Sheen, Mia Maestro, Booboo Stewart, and others.
  • Walter Salles' On the Road, with Sam Riley, Garrett Hedlund, Amy Adams, Kirsten Dunst, and Viggo Mortensen. On the Road will probably screen at the Cannes Film Festival, and already has opening dates in various countries including France, Portugal, and Brazil. There's no US release date (or distributor) as yet.

The American Bel Ami trailer, prominently featuring Robert Pattinson, has been launched online. (Please scroll down.) It looks exactly – or rather, almost exactly like the British Bel Ami trailer released last December. The one difference that I could find: The US version begins with the Magnolia Pictures logo; the British version begins with the StudioCanal logo.

So, as mentioned in our previous article on the Bel Ami trailer, instead of making romantic – and mostly quite chaste – love to Twilight's Kristen Stewart, in Bel Ami we get to see Pattinson seducing (and being seduced by) the likes of Kristin Scott Thomas, Uma Thurman, and Christina Ricci. British stage veterans (but film newcomers) Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod directed this most recent movie adaptation of Guy de Maupassant's classic 19th-century novel about an impoverished but ambitious ex-soldier who, and I'm quoting from André Soares' Bel Ami article here, “uses his drive, his wit, and his penis to get ahead in life.” And get ahead he does.

Adapted by Rachel Bennette, the R-rated Bel Ami also features Colm Meaney, Natalie Tena, Holliday Grainger, Pip Torrens, James Lance, and Todd Peterson. Bel Ami opens in the United States on June 8.

Kristen Stewart Snow White and the Huntsman Chris Hemsworth
Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Snow White and the Huntsman

Can't say I enjoy featurettes as they're nothing more than movie infomercials. The interviews are likely staged or, at the very least, carefully planned. Those interviewed aren't going to be impartial, and if they do say anything that could be perceived as negative, that will be edited out of the final featurette talking-head-and-torso compilation. I much prefer watching the actual trailers, as they give you (or at least they're supposed to give you) an indication of what the movie is actually about – and how it has turned out.

Anyhow, those who are into featurettes may enjoy this one. Among the interviewees are Oscar winner Charlize Theron (Monster), Twilight's Kristen Stewart, Thor's Chris Hemsworth, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Sam Claflin discussing the making of Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman. (Those who are into watching the actual trailers – and the ones for Snow White and the Huntsman are first-rate – should check out this SWATH TV spot.)

Distributed by Universal, Snow White and the Huntsman opens June 1. Also this year, Kristen Stewart will be seen opposite Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kirsten Dunst, Amy Adams, and Viggo Mortensen in Walter Salles' On the Road, which will quite possibly be screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May. In mid-November, Stewart will be seen with Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, the last installment in the Twilight movie saga.

Charlize Theron will next be seen in Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror thriller Prometheus, co-starring Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace. Among the busy Chris Hemsworth's upcoming movies are Joss Whedon's The Avengers, with Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner, and Drew Goddard's horror thriller The Cabin in the Woods.

Snow White and the Huntsman's screenplay is credited to Killing Season's Evan Daugherty, The Blind Side / The Rookie's John Lee Hancock, and Drive / The Wings of the Dove's Hossein Amini. In addition to Stewart, Theron, Hemsworth, and Claflin, the Gothic adventure / fantasy features Hugo / The Sweeney's Ray Winstone, Jack the Giant Killer / Sexy Beast's Ian McShane, Mona Lisa / Mrs. Henderson Presents' Bob Hoskins, and The Hunger Games / Captain America: The First Avenger's Toby Jones.

Also: Sherlock Holmes / Vera Drake's Eddie Marsan, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus / The Moth Diaries' Lily Cole, Clash of the Titans / 300's Vincent Regan, Your Highness / The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe's Noah Huntley, Attack the Block / Kinky Boots' Nick Frost, and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen / The Young Victoria's Rachael Stirling.

Relativity Media's comic retelling of the Snow White tale, Mirror Mirror, opened to poor reviews and disappointing box office ($18 million) this past weekend. Directed by Tarsem Singh, Mirror Mirror stars Lily Collins as Snow White, Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen, and Armie Hammer as Prince Charming.

Snow White and the Huntsman poster Blanche Neige et le chasseur
Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth: Snow White and the Huntsman French poster

Snow White and the Huntsman is an action film, in case you didn't know. The French poster for Blanche Neige et le Chasseur makes sure you get it. Kristen Stewart's Snow White / Blanche Neige is holding a long knife, Chris Hemsworth's Hunter / le Chasseur is holding both an axe and an adze, and Charlize Theron's Evil Queen / la Méchante Reine is holding the longest, most deadly dagger ever made. The thing is so long and so curved that if she stabs you on the upper torso, the dagger's tip will come out of your big toe.

Also note the billing: Although the trailers have mostly focused on the Evil Queen (and The Mirror), Kristen Stewart comes first, followed by Charlize Theron (soon to be seen in Ridley Scott's Prometheus) and Chris Hemsworth (currently on North American screens in The Cabin in the Woods, and soon to be seen in another action-packed flick, Joss Whedon's The Avengers).

Kristen Stewart, for her part, has two more movies coming out in 2012:

  • Walter Salles' On the Road, which opens in France on May 23 and will quite likely be screened at the Cannes Film Festival, features TRON: Legacy / Inside Llewyn Davis Garrett Hedlund, Byzantium / Woman in Love's Sam Riley, Julie & Julia / Man of Steel's Amy Adams, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring / Eastern Promises' Viggo Mortensen, Waiting for Forever / Being Julia's Tom Sturridge, Off the Hook / Ideal's Danny Morgan, Elysium / Predator's Alice Braga, Mad Men / Get Him to the Greek's Elisabeth Moss, and Spider-Man 3 / Melancholia's Kirsten Dunst.
  • Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, which opens Nov. 16, features Remember Me / Cosmopolis / Bel Ami's Robert Pattinson, Abduction's Taylor Lautner, in addition to Twilight, New Moon, and/or Eclipse cast members Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen, Booboo Stewart, Julia Jones, and Dakota Fanning.

Taylor LautnerMultiple Razzie winner Adam Sandler has a comedy sequel in the works, Grown Ups 2. Sounds bad? Well, it's about to get either better or worse – depending on your take on the Twilight movies and its stars: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Taylor Lautner (photo), the werewolf Jacob Black, is “in talks” to play opposite Sandler.

Thematically quite similar to Mario Monicelli's Amici miei (and perhaps to some extent to John Cassavetes' Husbands), Grown Ups – about men who grow old without growing up – featured Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, and Salma Hayek. The original cast members are expected to be back, and so is director Dennis Dugan. Project X's Oliver Cooper has been announced as another addition to the cast.

Though massacred by critics, the original Grown Ups grossed more than $162 million in North America and $109 million overseas. Sandler's Jack and Jill, however, was a box office disappointment. Sandler, who turns 46 next September, is perhaps in need of a younger face in his movies.

Besides Grown Ups 2, Lautner has also had his name linked to the likes of Michael Bay and Gus Van Sant. Stretch Armstrong was to have earned him $7 million according to reports of a year or so ago, but this past January it was announced that Lautner was no longer attached to the project.

Now, before Lautner goes imprinting his mark on Sandler – and I'd rather see that than the other way around – he'll be paired for the last (?) time with fellow Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 next November 16.

Kristen Stewart On the Road movieKristen Stewart beautiful On the Road movie Marylou photo. Kristen Stewart looks quite beautiful as Marylou in this On the Road picture posted earlier today on the movie's website. Best known for playing Bella Swan in Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn - Part 1, Stewart has recently been featured in several independent productions.

Kristen Stewart pre-On the Road indie movies

Most notably among those was a supporting role in Sean Penn's Into the Wild (which led to Stewart being cast in On the Road), and leads in Greg Mottola's well-received Adventureland, opposite Ryan Reynolds and Jesse Eisenberg; Floria Sigismondi's The Runaways, with Kristen Stewart as singer Joan Jett next to Dakota Fanning's Cherie Currie; and Jake Scott's little-seen Welcome to the Rileys, with Stewart as a pole dancer/sex worker “rescued” from a fate worse than death by James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo.

Directed by Walter Salles, and adapted by José Rivera from Jack Kerouac's classic 1950s novel, On the Road will probably be screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May. In addition to Kristen Stewart as Marylou, On the Road features TRON: Legacy's Garrett Hedlund as Dean Moriarty and Woman in Love's Sam Riley as Sal Paradise, plus Amy Adams, Viggo Mortensen, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan, Alice Braga, Elisabeth Moss, and Kirsten Dunst.

On the Road opens in France on May 23. The film should hit US shores some time in 2012, though it still lacks a North American distributor.

Kristen Stewart's 2012 movies

Also in 2012, Kristen Stewart will be seen in two other movies:

  • Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman, with Prometheus' Charlize Theron, The Avengers' Chris Hemsworth, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Sam Claflin.
  • Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, in which Stewart's leading men are Bel Ami's Robert Pattinson and Abduction's (and maybe Grown Ups 2's) Taylor Lautner. Also in the Breaking Dawn - Part 2 cast is the usual twicrowd: Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen, Booboo Stewart, Julia Jones, and Dakota Fanning.

Kristen Stewart reads – or pretends to read – Marcel Proust's Swann's Way in this photo on the On the Road “set.” Based on Jack Kerouac's classic novel, On the Road was directed by Walter Salles from a screenplay by José Rivera (Salles' collaborator on The Motorcycle Diaries).

Stewart's On the Road co-stars are TRON: Legacy / Inside Llewyn Davis Garrett Hedlund and Byzantium / Control / Woman in Love's Sam Riley. Also in the cast: Enchanted / Doubt / Man of Steel's Amy Adams, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King / Eastern Promises' Viggo Mortensen, Effie / Being Julia / Waiting for Forever's Tom Sturridge, Off the Hook / Ideal's Danny Morgan, Elysium / Predator's Alice Braga, Mad Men / Get Him to the Greek's Elisabeth Moss, and Marie Antoinette / Melancholia's Kirsten Dunst.

Mostly shot in late 2010 (in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Argentina), On the Road opens in France on May 23. Prior to its French release, the film will in all likelihood be screened at the Cannes Film Festival. (The official Cannes selections will be announced on April 19.) On the Road should hit US shores some time in 2012, though it still lacks a North American distributor.

Also in 2012, Kristen Stewart will be seen in two other movies:

  • Rupert Sanders' Snow White and the Huntsman, with Young Adult / Prometheus' Charlize Theron, Thor / The Avengers / The Cabin in the Woods' Chris Hemsworth, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Sam Claflin.
  • Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2, with Remember Me / Cosmopolis / Bel Ami's Robert Pattinson, Abduction's (and maybe Grown Ups 2's) Taylor Lautner, and the usual Twilight cast members: Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen, Booboo Stewart, Julia Jones, and Dakota Fanning.

Though best known as the Twilight movies' Bella Swan, torn between vampire Edward Cullen (Pattinson) and werewolf Jacob Black (Lautner), Stewart has appeared in several independent productions. Among those are a supporting role in Sean Penn's Into the Wild (which led to her being cast in On the Road), and leads in Greg Mottola's Adventureland, with Ryan Reynolds and Jesse Eisenberg; Floria Sigismondi's The Runaways, as singer Joan Jett opposite to Dakota Fanning's Cherie Currie; Udayan Prasad's The Yellow Handkerchief, with William Hurt, Maria Bello, and Eddie Redmayne; and Jake Scott's Welcome to the Rileys, co-starring James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo.

Robert Pattinson's Georges Duroy is about to be seduced by Uma Thurman's Madeleine Forestier in the Bel Ami online clip below (please scroll down). While getting ready for some erotically charged entertainment, Thurman's Madeleine tries to come up with a new name and origin for Pattinson's Georges, an impoverished ex-soldier thrown into the living rooms (and boudoirs) of Parisian high society.

Directed by Nick Ormerod and Declan Donnellan, and adapted by Rachel Bennette from Guy de Maupassant's classic 19th-century novel, Bel Ami also features Kristin Scott Thomas, Christina Ricci, Colm Meaney, Natalie Tena, Holliday Grainger, Pip Torrens, James Lance, and Todd Peterson. Bel Ami will be available on VOD in the United States on May 4. It opens in the US on June 8.

Also in 2012, Robert Pattinson will be seen in two other movies:

  • David Cronenberg's likely Palme d'Or contender Cosmopolis, featuring A Dangerous Method's Sarah Gadon, A Monkey on My Shoulder / Certified Copy's Juliette Binoche, Sideways / Win Win's Paul Giamatti, Elizabeth: The Golden Age / The Messenger's Samantha Morton, Real Steel / X-Men Origins: Wolverine's Kevin Durand, A Christmas Tale / The Diving Bell and the Butterfly's Mathieu Amalric, and The Sorcerer's Apprentice / How to Train Your Dragon's Jay Baruchel.
  • Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 opens on November 16.

Kristen Stewart hotCharlize Theron wishes Kristen Stewart (photo) a Happy Birthday in the video below. Stewart, one of Theron's co-stars in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, turns 22 today. I'm not used to hearing a woman being referred to as “dude” or “man,” but perhaps I've been hanging out with the wrong crowd?

Stewart's 23rd year (do your math: this is the beginning of her twenty-third year on this planet) will be a busy one on screen. She has three movies coming out: Walter Salles' On the Road (as Marylou), Rupert Sanders' aforementioned Snow White and the Huntsman (as Snow White), and Bill Condon's The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 (as Bella Swan). Snow White comes out on June 1; Breaking Dawn 2 on November 16. On the Road will likely be screened at the Cannes Film Festival; it opens in France on May 23, but it has no US released date yet.

Here's the list of cast members for each of those films:

  • On the Road features TRON: Legacy / Inside Llewyn Davis Garrett Hedlund, Byzantium / Woman in Love's Sam Riley, Julie & Julia / Man of Steel's Amy Adams, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring / Eastern Promises' Viggo Mortensen, Waiting for Forever / Being Julia's Tom Sturridge, Off the Hook / Ideal's Danny Morgan, Elysium / Predator's Alice Braga, Mad Men / Get Him to the Greek's Elisabeth Moss, and Spider-Man 3 / Melancholia's Kirsten Dunst.
  • Snow White and the Huntsman features Monster / Prometheus' Charlize Theron, Thor / The Avengers / The Cabin in the Woods' Chris Hemsworth, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Sam Claflin.
  • Breaking Dawn 2 features Remember Me / Cosmopolis / Bel Ami's Robert Pattinson, Abduction's Taylor Lautner, in addition to Twilight, New Moon, and/or Eclipse cast members Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz, Nikki Reed, Jackson Rathbone, Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen, Booboo Stewart, Julia Jones, and Dakota Fanning.

Among Stewart's previous movie appearances are those in Sean Penn's Into the Wild, with Emile Hirsch; Greg Mottola's Adventureland, with Ryan Reynolds, Jesse Eisenberg, and Kristen Wiig; Floria Sigismondi's The Runaways, as singer Joan Jett opposite to Dakota Fanning's Cherie Currie; Udayan Prasad's The Yellow Handkerchief, with William Hurt, Maria Bello, and Eddie Redmayne; and Jake Scott's Welcome to the Rileys, co-starring James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo.

Robert Pattinson Breaking Dawn 2
Kristen Stewart's hair, Robert Pattinson, Breaking Dawn 2

Bill Condon, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Guillermo Navarro are some of the cast and crew of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 heading back to Vancouver for a few pick-up shots that Condon (and/or the film's editing/production team) has deemed necessary for the film's continuity. Condon (or someone writing for him) posted the news earlier today on the Breaking Dawn 2 Facebook page. (Please scroll down & see also: image of Bella kissing Edward in Breaking Dawn 2.)

According to online rumors, the Breaking Dawn 2 pick-up scenes will be shot April 30-May 3. If so, it'll not interfere with the Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off on May 16 and will quite likely feature films starring both Kristen Stewart (Walter Salles' On the Road) and Robert Pattinson (David Cronenberg's Cosmopolis).

Bill Condon's announcement follows. Note that although Condon makes no mention of Taylor Lautner, that doesn't necessarily mean Lautner won't be needed for the pick-up shots.

Hello Twihards!

Greetings from Los Angeles, where we're hard at work on Breaking Dawn - Part 2. It's truly crazy to think that it's been a year since we wrapped production in Vancouver, since for those of us in the editing room the work has never stopped.

A film is a lot like a puzzle, with each piece – each shot, no matter how brief – needing to fit exactly with the ones around it. Our Part Two puzzle is finally coming into full view, and in a few weeks we'll be heading back north to pick up some additional shots – the last tiny missing pieces. We're not shooting any new scenes or dialogue, just some technical work with some of our cast and stunt actors.

I am really looking forward to being back on set with some of the friends I've made on my Twilight journey, like the great Guillermo Navarro, our cinematographer, and his crew. And yes, Rob and Kristen will be there too, to pop in those gold contacts one last time…

I'm excited to report that before too long we'll have another trailer for you to decode. And wait until you see the first posters – they're unlike any Twilight images you've seen before. And then November 16th will be upon us and the final film will be yours!

Until then, have a very happy spring, and I'll check back in with you soon.

Best wishes,

Bill

Directed by Condon and adapted by Melissa Rosenberg from Stephenie Meyer's bestselling novel, Breaking Dawn 2 opens Nov. 16. Besides Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, the Breaking Dawn 2 cast includes Peter Facinelli, Elizabeth Reaser, Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, Dakota Fanning, Anna Kendrick, Michael Sheen, Jackson Rathbone, Booboo Stewart, and Billy Burke.

Also: Maggie Grace, Jamie Campbell Bower, Julia Jones, Christopher Heyerdahl, Mackenzie Foy, Lee Pace, MyAnna Buring, Angela Sarafyan, Cameron Bright, Rami Malek, Joel Anderson, Noel Fisher, Alex Meraz, Christian Camargo, Mia Maestro, Ty Olsson, Charlie Bewley, Daniel Cudmore, Kiowa Gordon, Omar Metwally, Casey LaBow, Bronson Pelletier, Erik Odom, Guri Weinberg, and Lisa Howard.

    Kristen Stewart is beautiful and a great actress. I loved Kristen in Snow White and the Huntsman. I lvoe Kristen in The Runaways. and I can't wait to see Kristen Stewart in On the Road. I think it's going to be an excellent movie and I think Kristen will finally get the recognition she deserves as an actress.\

    Kristen Stewart is the star of the future!

  2. sss

    heddy, get lost..snowhiet looks perfsct. You are obviously not into movie

  3. Heddy

    Who are they kidding? This poster makes it looks like sullen Bella Swan and Thor (could they make his axe look any more like a hammer???) meet the gorgeous Charlize. The marketing department has really been working overtime to insure the other fanbases know where to plunk down their money. The trailer made it look like Braveheart meets LoTR in Sherwood Forest. Snow White has a lot to live up to if she wants to get anywhere close to Katniss and neither the trailer or this poster do anything for me.

  4. @Crystal

    Um, Crystal. I read Alt Film Guide regularly and I think Sam Riley's amazing, so I've been reading the postings for On the Road. You seem to often post and have this weird, over the top reaction to Kristen Stewart. Chill. You are also wrong about this film dying. Pretty much every source (THR, Variety, etc.) thinks this will be at Cannes. This isn't going to make a lot of money and we are coming into summer blockbuster season, so there most likely will only be attention at Cannes and then later on in the Fall during awards season. Pretty much EVERY indie performs like that…With a director like Walter Salles, this will most likely get some awards attention, at the very least in terms of the Indie Spirits, etc. Lastly, I believe it was THR that said the case with this film was that they want more money than the distributors are willing to pay without it being shown at Cannes and seeing the critical reactions, etc. So no, it's not like US distributors aren't interested.

  5. cedrica

    stop being so overly judgemental people, she has the same face in her movies not the same expressions, the girl is amazing in the right movie and she can't possibly change her face though it comes with the body that your born with.

  6. Crystal

    This film has a surprising lack of buzz, considering the source material. The teaser came out and basically died. No US distribution, no word of mouth. No one seems excited about this except for a few of KStew's rabid fans who praise everything she does, no matter how bad it is. OTR is starting to have the stink of another failed indie.

  7. maya

    I am proud of Kristen, Taylor and Robert! I will support every movie the three of you make! God Bless the three of you and you guys will always be in my prayers!

  8. karen ellington

    That is such a beautiful and innocent looking picture i have seen in along time,it takes my breath away.Can't wait for On The Road to come out on the East Coast.. As all so Rob's Movies can't wait to see him in action with all those gorgeous women…Please hurry Canne's Film Festival..Kristen and Rob will be to support one another..Peace and Prayers to you both and your families,and your all your animals….Peace. Karen.E

  9. @Crystal

    Ok, so I have admittedly not seen her in the Twilight films…but I don't get why everyone think she's such a horrible actress. Roger Ebert is pretty complimentary of her and so is Dargis. Stewart got decent to really good reviews for The Runaways from what I remember and she's pretty decent in the other indies I've seen her in. So yeah, like I said before (I'm the poster Jack) I don't get the people on the internet who go on about how ugly or plain she is (really?) or how they think she is such a bad actress. Maybe it's because I tend to separate the actor/actress from the public persona? It's just, Ebert is usually spot on in my opinion. Then again, everyone has different opinions.

  10. Jack

    I never understand the people who call this girl ugly or plain. Half the time she looks like she's going to a 1992 Seattle grunge concert, but she has a beautiful face and a cute body. I find her moderately talented (I've never seen Twilight, so I can't judge her by that) and I'm interested to see how she fares in this film.

  11. Crystal

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I see they didn't bother with concealer to hide the dark under eye shadows. Stewart looks like a Sullen Cullen here, same vaguely annoyed expression she has in just about every film. Same on as in the trailer for SWATH. It continues to escape me why having a blank expression is considered great acting. At least they picked a shot where she has her mouth closed for once. Score!

  12. xxx

    Jennifer..who..what a classy girl

  13. spy

    A failed artist Kristen Stewart

  14. @Bailey

    Seriously. I never get the people who call this girl ugly or plain. I think she's one of the more attractive actresses out there. I agree with this blog post. The Twilight movies are total crap, but so were half the things that were honored back in the day. Despite how crappy the films are, they have made an incredible amount of money and helped fuel the whole vampire craze that has been going for the past few years.

  15. Tammy

    What does this have to do with anything?

  16. Bailey

    WOW what a stunning girl!
