Why Kristen Stewart Matters

I was sent this blog post by a friend and I fell in love with it. As the mother of a two year old who refused to be anything but a princess for Halloween I can completely relate. I wanted her to be a witch but at some point you have to let your kids make some of their own decisions. I just didn’t realize that would start at two!

So, I dressed my little angel in the princess costume of her choosing but flat out refused to buy her the “glass slippers.”  I gave in on the crown but we don’t do glass slippers up in here!  For me, as a woman, glass slippers scream “I can’t do anything on my own and I need a man to do it for me” so I bought her an old pair of Chucks and glittered those puppies up.  She loved them and walked effortlessly through the night collecting tons of candy she’ll never eat.

Kristen Stewart gets a bum rap, if for no other reason than because she’s awkward and refuses to fit into a fluffy category of Hollywood’s making.  She also gets crap for who she dates and both things are absurd.  As women we should take it easy on other women from time to time and celebrate our differences instead of holding them against one another.  I love Kristen for her weirdness, which is literally the highest compliment I can give.  I find it refreshing that she’s the anti Kim Kardashian.  She’s young, beautiful and talented.  I would think other women would find that liberating.


Why Kristen Stewart Matters:

A Screed About Girls, Role Models And

Tearing Down Those Who Are Different


“Bill Condon, the director of Breaking Dawn, said the following about Kristen Stewart in an interview. “She was pitched a female role in a comic-book superhero movie that’s about to get started – I won’t say which one – and she was like, ‘Well, screw that. I shouldn’t be the superhero’s girlfriend, I should be the superhero.’”

Too late, Kristen. You kind of already are.”   ~ Kate Spencer

Kristen Stewart Talks Vampire Bella With BoxOffice Magazine!


This is a great interview with Kristen Stewart about shooting the Breaking Dawns, Vampire Bella and Snow White and the Huntsman!   This is part one of the interview and part two set to make an appearance closer to the release of Breaking Dawn Part I on November 18th!

From BoxOffice:

You know this character so well, what’s it like to take her through this huge change when she becomes a vampire herself?


It felt good. It was really weird. It was such a long process of the two movies being shot at the same time as if they’re one. You shoot, obviously, out of order and you keep going back and forth between pregnant, human and dead vampire Bella. There’s so many different versions of Bella in this, it’s insane. It was a strange experience walking on set the first time I played a scene as a vampire because I’d watched everyone around me doing it all the time. I sound so lame, but vampire Bella really is my favorite character—she’s very representative of a matriarch. She’s very intuitive on almost a psychic level and no one ever acknowledges it, which is interesting. Maybe that says something about Stephenie that she doesn’t get respect for all of her f–king amazing qualities. And that’s also one of the things that makes her appealing to me, so that’s not a strike at it—that’s something that I like about it. And I think it’s nice to see her finally get what she wants. That’s probably the best thing, even if it sounds simple and indulgent, which is why the f–king thing is criticized all the time. It’s nice to see people be happy. And she really—if I’ve played it right—is born to be where she is.

You’re shooting Snow White and the Huntsman right now which imagines Snow White as this warrior princess. What’s her fighting style like?

Not to trivialize it at all, but it’s hard to play an action hero who is also the most compassionate person on earth. You can’t hate. You epitomize bleeding hearts, so how the f–k do you do an action movie like that? She is sort of the last shred of hope for her land. She has this ethereal, spiritual connection to her people—she really feels things-and so it’s like we don’t really feel empathy. I’ve had some f–king eye-opening experiences on this movie. I think that to truly care for something isn’t just putting yourself in that situation aesthetically and then going, “Oh my god, I feel so bad for them.” It’s truly not thinking of yourself at all. The way that you fight is that you must take out anything that hurt your people. Basically, I’m fighting evil—I’m fighting the most evil motherf–kers-and it’s fine that they’re being killed. It’s anguish. It’s literally f–king anguish. She takes absolutely no pleasure in ever hurting anything. I’m exhausted right now and I was thinking, “The fight stuff is coming up, maybe that won’t be so bad.” And then I realized that they’re probably going to be my most emotional scenes because I’m killing people and I’m Snow White. It’s a really f–king cool way to approach a movie where so many people die. Not that I’m criticizing violent movies—I love them, generally—but it is nice to do it this way.

Make sure to check back for the rest of our interview closer to the November 18 release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part I.

Fun, French Interview with Kristen Stewart!

This is a translation from a French interview so keep that in mind.

29-09-2011 – 5:03 p.m.

While fans begin to rally for the release, November 16, the first part of Revelation , the fourth and penultimate chapter in the saga Twilight , Kristen Stewart has agreed to engage in an exclusive interview published in the latest First number. Here is the full version …

By Mathieu Carratier

First: The first Twilight  was a teenage love story, the second a love triangle and the third almost a war movie … How would you describe Revelation  ?

Kristen Stewart  : It’s more of a family drama. Unlike previous episodes, everyone is united in it. The beginning of the film displays a tone that contrasts sharply with the others, whose saga was badly needed in my opinion. It’s funny, light, we see the characters finally be happy. Of course, it will not last …


I admit to being partial to the first film of the saga, but I feel that the following two were content to stretch the story unnecessarily …

I understand what you say on 2 and 3, and I agree: the first was a trick. It was original and there by itself. Revelation is very satisfying, I feel really found there the book, the leg Stephenie Meyer is there. It is also the culmination of all that has been built for three films. The climax, with all the excitement that implies.


I read that Stephenie Meyer had laid the foundations of this fourth book after writing the first, which would explain the slightly “fill” the second and third …

I did not know … But it is true that it is not aberrant, in that we could go directly to the end of Fascination with engagement in four. At the same time, I remember that Stephenie wrote the fourth book while we turned the first movie. When I look back at that time, it seems crazy: no one knew, we were all so different … I can still see us, actors, director, writer, come out and say (it takes embarrassed) “Hello everyone … “Now we became so close, it’s just funny.


You were 17 when you shot the first Twilight . How do these past four years on the saga thee changed?

When you spend time on a project that requires hard work, you should feel invested, ready to defend the body and soul. This is what I feel for each of my films, and that’s why I choose them. Twilight allowed me to share this passion with an audience much wider. Like everything reached such a level of popularity, the story is much criticized, and I realized that it made ??me even more protective. The experience was also really open. When I was younger, I felt things in a very strong but I was not always able to express it. I have made ??tremendous progress in this regard. In terms of acting, each new project you shape, helps your inhibitions to fall gradually. I was a teenager when I started, and I think you get better as you get to know you, to take possession of your body. It acquiring this control you can then losing when scene requires. Like all films, Twilight made ??me grow. Can be a little faster than others.


Between Twilight , you played in The Runaways  and Welcome To The Rileys . Strong characters and independent …

It’s not a conscious choice. Since I am a natural introvert, I guess I also have to compensate for it by playing such roles. But I am not at all opposed to the idea of ??playing characters more weak or vulnerable. It would even be quite exciting.


Good. Otherwise, Hollywood would not necessarily have a lot of work to offer you …

It is true that these strong characters are rare. Notice that, in one way or another, a woman on the screen always needs the help of a man by the end of the film. It also requires that one is cute at all costs, the viewer must love us. I do not yet ready to do it myself, but I’m fascinated by actors who are willing to truly embody the characters unsympathetic.


How long was the shooting of two parts of Revelation  ?

Six months plus three weeks of rehearsals.


Some days you had to be a little long …

It was sometimes repetitive, indeed, so much so that I sometimes think back scenes from previous episodes. This does not mean they are not essential to the story, but there are days when I felt like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day . Especially when we were in Baton Rouge in the house. We shot all sequences within a row before going to shoot the exteriors. Intimate and emotional scenes, dialogue, they chained endlessly … I thought it would never stop. Especially me, who instead used independent films that are made ??in five minutes. After, we went to Canada where he was obviously a cold hell. Instead of being happy to finally find themselves in the open, we had only one desire: to get warm. The plan of shooting could not have been worse. Even when we shot the honeymoon in Brazil, it was the rainy season!


What kind of captain was Bill Condon  ?

I love Bill. It really is someone who invites you into his creative process. He is always listening, but we feel it is honest. I worked with directors who are very open, they encourage you to share your suggestions so that basically, they completely do not care. Nothing to do with Bill. I really felt invested in the project, where some could have been there just to capitalize on the success of the planned film. Comic-Con, I made ??a joke saying, “Look, we have to achieve a size! “But I am deeply pleased that Twilight attracts that kind of talent today.


What were the key moments of filming for you?

These are the most highly anticipated by fans of the book: the marriage, the first love scene, the birth … to finally play the hyper proved cathartic.


And the last day?

There have been two days, actually. One where we finished shooting the wedding with the whole team, which was consistent with the idea that I had done. I knew that everyone would return home at night without really realizing the importance of the moment, before realizing the next day it was well and truly over. A little later we found ourselves in St. Thomas, the Caribbean, to finish a scene we had more or less failed in Brazil. Plans with only Rob and me, which made the moment even more special. We were on the beach, facing the rising sun … I even caught Wick Godfrey, the producer who accompanied us since the beginning of the saga, to put it into the water. It was perfect. All we could hope for a moment like this.

Kristen Stewart Stars in Marcus Foster’s ‘I Was Broken!’

We got a hold of Marcus Foster’s new video today for‘I Am Broken’ and it is amazing! Not only is the song incredible but the video is a stunning black and white and it stars Kristen Stewart who is breathtaking as usual!!

As if all of that wasn’t enough, I just love Marcus Foster!  He can do no wrong in my book and I up the love factor when someone can sing a song like that and make it sound like it’s bleeding.   I got this today for the first time this morning while I was with my kids at the Train Museum trying to fill their day until my son’s school opens back up.  It’s still closed from the hurricane.  I watched it three times on my cell phone as my kids played in the play area.  When I got home, I watched it probably ten more times and am listening to it in my ear again as I write this.  This is by far the best version of this song I’ve ever heard.  Rob’s was so poorly recorded that I don’t think it sounded as good as it could have but this is amazing!  Thank you MSN Music for posting this great video today!

Please watch the video below and tell me that everything about it isn’t breathtaking!
