Runaway Talent

Posted by . Filed in Gallery, Interviews

To some, Kristen Stewart is simply “the ‘Twilight’ girl.” Her arresting turn as love-struck teen Bella Swan in the swoony series of vampire romance blockbusters put her on the map and earned her the mantle of “movie star.”

And for many young actors, this would have represented the chance to cash in, to do a whole bunch of well-paying wannabe hits with various supernatural love interests. Stewart, on the other hand, prefers the more challenging route: offbeat indies, parts that speak to her in a genuine way, and the occasional portrayal of an icon (like, say, Joan Jett). She only hopes that those who want to see her as nothing more than Bella will give her a chance.

“There’s a road I’m going down now, and I’m aware that there’s not as much of an audience for strange movies—for different, eclectic movies—and I totally accept that,” she says. “But at the same time, if I do films like that, I want people to take it for what it is instead of going, ‘Oh, let’s see the ‘Twilight’ girl try to do this.’”

Stewart says she is deeply grateful for all the opportunities the runaway vampire franchise has sent her way, but she has made sure the personas she has taken on since have not been terribly Bella-like. Take her nuanced performance in the recent indie sensation “Welcome to the Rileys.” As foul-mouthed teen runaway/stripper Mallory, Stewart is raw and real, a believably bruised troublemaker, and she more than holds her own opposite co-stars James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo. “I’m really glad that it took the time that it did to get made, because I think by the time I was 18, I was ready and more confident and mature enough to play the part,” says the actor, now 20. “I had read the script when I was 16, and I was just too young. I would’ve shied away from stuff, I think.” Continue Reading at the Source

Kristen detours from ‘Twilight’ to a different kind of drama in ‘Welcome to the Rileys’

Posted by . Filed in Interviews, Kristen


For once, Kristen Stewart seemed at ease.

The 20-year-old “Twilight” star was enjoying a rare moment of anonymity at one of her favorite restaurants, a rustic hideaway shrouded by a canopy of ferns, perched alongside a twisty road in Topanga Canyon. Notices for a local farmers market, a childbirth preparation class and a 70th birthday celebration for John Lennon decorated the haunt’s bulletin board.

A few honeybees circled the veggie burger on her plate as she chatted about playing a teenage runaway-turned-stripper in her latest film, “Welcome to the Rileys,” a drama coming to theaters Friday. She wasn’t running her hands through her hair, or incessantly shaking her leg, or stuttering as she tried to express herself — all of the characteristic nervous tics she’s often displayed in public since the first “Twilight” film rocketed her into a frightening orbit of celebrity two years ago.

Then, suddenly, her face fell. A stranger was timidly inching over to her table.

“Could I take a picture for my girlfriend in Thailand?” the man, who appeared to be in his 30s, asked. “She’s a great-looking girl. I just recently got into your movies with her. Is that cool?”

Stewart paused, her left leg slowly beginning to bounce. “Yeah,” she sighed. “Yeah, sure.” She posed for a photo with the interloper.

Oblivious to her agitation, he lingered. “What’s your name again? Kristen, right? Want me to show you my girl?” he asked, beginning to flip through images on his digital camera. “Just for her to know that I picked up breakfast at your restaurant. You know, we’re the type of people that don’t get out much.”

Finally, he retreated. Stewart pulled the hood of her black sweatshirt over her head.

“It’s strange when you become a novelty,” she said, slouching down into her seat. “It’s sort of like, ‘Yeah, sure. Go put this on your Facebook so your friends can laugh at it.’ Because that’s what they will do. And I usually say no to people like that, when they’re like, ‘Yo, yo, can I get a picture of you?’ And it’s like, ‘No, … you,’ ” she said, interjecting an obscenity. “That’s what I’m thinking.” [Read More]

Kristen hasn’t met her “Breaking Dawn” Daughter Yet!

Posted by . Filed in Interviews

Kristen Stewart hasn’t met her daughter yet. “That sounds so weird,” she told MTV News recently.

That’s just the way things work in Hollywood. “Breaking Dawn” has not yet started shooting, and so Stewart has not yet had a face-to-face meeting with Mackenzie Foy, the 9-year-old actress who will play her daughter in the next installment of the “Twilight” saga.

Director Bill Condon, though, is convinced that Foy — who will play the vampire/human hybrid Renesmee — looks exactly like the child that Stewart and co-star Robert Pattinson would spawn (if they ever decided to spawn, which is a topic for an entirely different story).

“He was like, ‘Wait until you see this kid. If you and Rob had a kid, this would be it,’ ” Stewart said. “I was like, ‘That’s so weird.’ She just looks like — she sort of looks like Bella. Which is absolutely right. Although the funny thing is, she has green eyes, and we both have to wear brown contacts together.”

The other elements of Bella Swan’s married life are coming together. Stewart has already gone through a fitting for Bella’s wedding dress, though in the 20-year-old actress’ words, “I haven’t put the one on yet.”

And when it comes to what happens after Bella walks down the aisle and the couple departs for some feather-filled honeymoon bumping-and-grinding, well, rest assured that the movie will stay faithful to the book.

“Of course,” Stewart said about those famous feathers. “Come on. That is important. I don’t know how we would not have that, actually.”

Kristen Got Bruised Learning Pole Dancing for WTTR

Posted by . Filed in Interviews, Kristen, Media

Kristen Stewart learned to pole dance for her new movie, ‘Welcome to the Rileys,’ and she told ET it was painful and that she even got bruised during the learning process!

The ‘Twilight’ star stepped out for the premiere of ‘Welcome to the Rileys’ on Monday night in New York, and she told ET, “I did two weeks of it. … I did learn how to do it and I got bruises all over my legs. It’s hard, but it actually doesn’t look painful, but it is. It kinda beats you up.

“This is something that any girl can relate to: if you love yourself and you respect yourself, that’s the only way anybody else is going to,” Kristen says when it comes to her character in ‘Rileys.’

Kristen, who’s rumored to be dating her ‘Twilight’ onscreen beau, Robert Pattinson, also had words for another celeb couple — Katy Perry and Russell Brand. She sent a message to the pair, who are rumored to be about to get married any day now in India, saying, “Congrats, have fun in India. That’s great.”

In ‘Welcome to the Rileys,’ which opens in select cities on October 29, Kristen plays a 17-year-old runaway who impacts the lives of a couple (played by James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo) grieving the loss of their teenager.
