Kristen i Us Weekly





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.”

“Rileys” director Jake Scott first took note of Stewart in Sean Penn’s “Into the Wild.” Her screen time is limited, but she made it her own. “I went for a drink with Sean Penn, and he said, ‘Check this kid out,’?” recalls Scott. “She didn’t do very much in that film, but she just had this quality that I’d always imagined Mallory would have—I always say ‘vulpine.’ Kind of feral, a bit of an alley cat. That really is strong in her, even though she’s come from a very happy, loving background. It’s interesting; maybe that’s why she can play such damaged characters, such complex characters.”

“Welcome to the Rileys” was in the works pre-”Twilight,” and Scott recalls having to fight a bit to cast Stewart. “I was lucky he thought I deserved it,” she says with a laugh. Stewart did everything possible to live up to the faith Scott had in her, throwing herself into research and character work. “I’m from the Valley, and I’ve had the most normal and privileged upbringing, so the fear in that is sort of ‘Who are you and what do you know?’?” she says.

Stewart read books on homeless teens, talked to real-life strip club workers, and even learned to pole dance. “You really don’t see it in the movie,” she says of the pole dancing, “which sucks—I mean, it doesn’t suck. Jake didn’t want to exploit Mallory any more than she already is, but I did find that they beat the hell out of themselves. I had bruises all over my legs, all up the sides of my body. I think we did everything we could to do it right. For the girls who can relate to a movie like this, it’s so necessary. We would be such frauds if we didn’t do the proper work.”

For Stewart, “the proper work,” the things you have to do to make a performance as authentic as humanly possible, is an integral part of the way she approaches a role. Those who do want to see her as awkward Bella Swan—a sometimes morose, sometimes wishy-washy teen—have likely never heard her talk about acting. There’s a striking passion that takes over whenever she discusses truly connecting to a character, and even though she hasn’t had to audition in a while, she doesn’t make her choices lightly. When she wants a role, she really wants it.

“If you have to sit there and ask yourself if you want to do something, then you don’t want to do it,” she says firmly. “If you sit around going, ‘Well, it’s a good story, there are a few things that confuse me, but I can work it out’? No, no, no. I couldn’t do that. I think I’d be so bad in whatever project that was. I can’t make something work that doesn’t completely speak to me. You just go, ‘I want to live that. I’d really like to learn from that.’ And you see it all so clearly.”

In the ‘Room’

When it comes to performing, Stewart saw things pretty clearly from an early age. Her mother was a script supervisor, so Stewart grew up hanging out on movie sets. “I would go to work with her, and I saw kids on set and I would be like, ‘Gosh, I want a job,’?” she says, chuckling. An opportunity opened up when someone spotted her “singing some ridiculous song in a holiday performance thing” at school, she recalls. “There was somebody in the audience that helps you find an agent as a kid. It really, really would probably only ever happen in Los Angeles.” At 9, she started auditioning for and landing movies. One of her early high-profile roles, as a diabetic youngster in the thriller “Panic Room,” put her opposite Jodie Foster and under the direction of David Fincher.

“I think I went in six times over the course of several months, because they’d started production and then shut down and then recast people,” Stewart says. “I really fought for that part. They made every kid that came up really work their asses off for it; it wasn’t a quick thing. I had to read for David Fincher numerous times, and every time there would be notes. It was really intense.” She understands the lengthy process better now, but at the time, she was just itching for the chance to prove herself. “I was like, ‘God, dude, fuckin’ relax, I can do it!’?” she says, laughing. “I was totally thinking that he should just trust me.”

“Panic Room” got Stewart’s career off to a nice start, but it wasn’t until she starred in the dark indie “Speak” at age 13 that things clicked, that she recognized that acting could be fulfilling to her as a career. “I realized that you could get more from the job than just entertainment and not having to go to school,” she says. “You could tell stories that people can take a lot from.”

She went on to mix big, kid-friendly flicks with thoughtful independent projects, including actor Mary Stuart Masterson’s feature directorial debut, “The Cake Eaters.” Masterson remembers being impressed with Stewart’s “Panic Room” performance, but she was even more blown away once they started working together. Stewart’s character in “The Cake Eaters” suffers from Friedreich’s ataxia, a disease that affects speech and movement. If the symptoms were depicted inaccurately, says Masterson, the result could have been offensive. But once again, Stewart was determined to do the work.

“She was totally committed to getting it right,” Masterson recalls. “I gave her some interviews I had taped and introduced her to some people living with the disease, and she immersed herself in the process. She was very private about it, and I knew that was a good sign, because I had been through similar work on real-life characters before and I knew that what she was experiencing was a kind of protectiveness for the integrity of those souls suffering with what she would only have to play at.”

When Masterson started doing festival Q&As for the film, “Twilight” hadn’t come out yet and Stewart was far from a household name. “After every screening,” the director says, “someone would always ask how I found an actress that good who had the disease.”

</b>’Road’ Map

Stewart was in Pittsburgh working on the indie film “Adventureland” when she first got wind of “Twilight.” At the time, she says, she didn’t really have “enough room in my head” to even consider a project of that magnitude. Still, she was up for the audition and recalls being thrilled when director Catherine Hardwicke and actor Jackson Rathbone flew to Pittsburgh to meet with her. “We worked together for four hours,” Stewart says. “And by the end of it, we didn’t want to stop talking about it, and Catherine was like, ‘Okay, well, I think you should do this. I’m gonna get on a plane now, but hopefully we can continue this discussion later.’ I was like, ‘Uh, does that mean…?’ I couldn’t believe it.”

Like Scott, Hardwicke was charmed by Stewart’s brief “Into the Wild” performance. “I felt her vulnerability and yearning leap off the screen when she sat on that bed in the trailer, trying to seduce Emile [Hirsch],” Hardwicke recalls. “Kristen has to feel everything—to connect, to make it her own. She is intense and powerful and athletically gifted. Bella Swan is clumsy. Kristen had to be the most awkward volleyball player in ‘Twilight,’ but in reality she’s a superstar.”

Stewart wasn’t necessarily prepared for the “superstar” status “Twilight” would afford her, but she has tried to remain grounded and keep her decision-making process basically the same. “A lot changed, but at the same time the process of choosing stuff doesn’t change,” she says. “I guess I wouldn’t know the difference if I didn’t have ‘Twilight,’ because the things that have rolled in probably wouldn’t have rolled in. I’m aware and thankful for that. And when something like ‘Welcome to the Rileys’ speaks to you, you have to jump on it.”

That said, she’s still genuinely surprised when filmmakers want to cast her in certain things—like Walter Salles’ upcoming take on Jack Kerouac’s novel “On the Road.” “When it was sort of coming to be and I was the right age to play the part of Marylou, I didn’t even want to think about it a whole lot, because I was like, ‘They’re gonna hire Scarlett Johansson,’?” Stewart says with a laugh. “Which would’ve been fantastic, but I just couldn’t imagine inserting myself into that equation.”

Now that she is part of the equation, she’s bringing her usual commitment to the role—and, refreshingly, with a sense of wonder not typically found in young stars who have been working as long as she has. “I worked with my friend Tom Sturridge, and he plays Carlo Marx, who’s Allen Ginsberg,” Stewart says, excitement creeping into her voice. “And I would look over at him, and he’s doing this fucking full-on Allen Ginsberg crazy monologue in the corner of some thumping, raving party, and I’m dancing to bebop jazz, and I’d be like, ‘Tom, we’re doing “On the Road.” Just so you know? “On the Road.”?’?”

Strategy Game

Though she has a distinctive way of evaluating potential roles, Stewart confesses that she avoids heavy strategizing when it comes to her career, “because to have a strategy, I couldn’t have that thing where I didn’t know what I wanted to do until it really screamed at me. But eventually—who knows how close or how far away this is—especially now that I’ve been given this enormous gift of ‘yes,’ I would love to develop projects and do them with people that are already close to me.”

The “gift of yes” that the success of “Twilight” has given her is something Stewart still marvels at. But she understands the gift’s limitations—and she doesn’t want to use it to rehash Bella Swan. “I haven’t tried it yet, but apparently it would be easy for me to greenlight a movie where I play the main part if I play a fairly normal-looking, pretty girl,” she says. “There are a lot of those movies. But if I wanted to play, say, a transgendered prisoner [in in-the-works indie 'K-11'], which I really want to do, that doesn’t hold the same weight.”

Stewart knows that a lot of eyes are on her at this point. And she knows there are some people who will always see her as “the ‘Twilight’ girl.” But she’s determined to keep pursuing edgy parts, to build her career by always demonstrating her full commitment to whatever projects she takes on and by working hard for the writers and directors who entrust her with their visions. “Really,” she says earnestly, “I just want to keep doing what I’m doing.”

Bilderna är tagna av John Cassady  när han fick träffa skådespelarna: 

John Allen Cassady was in England visiting his mother, Carolyn Cassady, when he got the call from Walter Salles, Director of "On The Road". Walter wanted to know if John would be willing to interrupt his visit with Carolyn so he could meet and give a talk to the cast and crew of the movie while they were filming in Montreal. Walter promised a round trip flight from London to Montreal and that John would be back at his mum's place in a few days. John only wanted to know one thing: "Will I get to meet Kristen Stewart?" He was assured he'd meet everyone so John boarded that silver bird. 

They picked John up in a limo and delivered him to a five star hotel in Montreal. To his chagrin, Kristen wasn't waiting there for him. They brought him to a party where he met everyone. He spoke to people he recognized and people he didn't. John took photos with disposable cameras because he'd left his digital back in London. He took pictures of everyone and everything. The next day he's having lunch with the producers and asks, "So when do I get to meet Kristen Stewart?" "John," they said, "You met her last night. You flirted shamelessly for hours. You got photos of the two of you together." John didn't know what she looked like! "And I wasn't even drinking," he said. 

Back in London John got all his pictures developed. One of them was lost by the photo company. It was the one with all the photos of John and Kristen Stewart. "Story of my life," John said.

Joan Jett, som spelades av Twilightstjärnan Kristen Stewart, säger att hon är imponerad att filmen har inspirerat en ny generation av unga kvinnor att plocka upp gitarren. "Det är verkligen sött - men nej, de kommer inte springandes och skriker som de gör för Kristen. Kanske är de rädda för att göra det eller något."

Joan Jett, som kommer håller hov på den lokal rockinstitutionen Annandale Hotel den 7 januari, säger att hon är angelägen om att starta ett nytt kapitel med sitt australiska besök.

Kristen Stewart is the lead actress in one of the biggest Hollywood franchises ever, and if she seems caught off guard by her massive fame (and she does, often), she's not as shocked as Jodie Foster. "I am surprised she is an actress," Foster recently told E!. When Stewart was just 11, she played Foster's daughter in the David Fincher thriller Panic Room, and "I didn't think [stardom was] where she was headed," Foster confessed. "And even though her mom said, 'No, she really, really wants to be an actress,' I felt like, 'Nah, she won't because she really doesn't have the stereotypical personality.'"

What Foster means, of course, is that we're used to seeing our female movie stars a certain way: bubbly, ambitious, and willing to do hard time in run-of-the-mill romantic comedies if it eventually leads to eight-figure paychecks and one prestige picture that nets them an Oscar nod. To say the least, the 20-year-old Stewart has circumvented that route on her path to the top, but what comes next for such an unconventional starlet? Does Kristen Stewart actually want to be a movie star, and what kind of post-Twilight prospects does she have? Vulture asked industry insiders those questions to answer that Star Market perennial: If Kristen Stewart were a stock, should you buy, sell, or hold?



Kristen Stewart blir ofta uppmålad som en av Hollywoods mest obekväma stjärnor- smärtsamt blyg, dåligt anpassad till rampljuset och, på gott och ont, vävs samman med Twilight Saga och hennes uttryck för sin romantiska hjältinna, Bella Swan. I Welcome to the Rileys spelar den 20-åriga skådespelaren Mallory, en tonårig strippa på rymmen som snabbt bildar ett intensivt band med sörjande Doug (James Gandolfini), som förlorade sin dotter i en dödsolycka. Tillsammans skapar de en ad hoc-familj som är lite mer disfunktionell än de flesta familjer. Vi talade med Stewart om Twilight, Rileys och att hänga på strippklubbar.

Du verkar vara väldigt attraherad av roller där du spelar någon som är trotsig, ständigt kämpar för något- emotionellt, fysiskt. Vad är det svåraste som Mallory kämpar för?
Jag tror att hon bara försöker överleva. Hon har haft en tuff uppväxt, som togs från henne på en riktigt grundläggande nivå. Det är svårt för en ung flicka i den vanliga världen, men sätt henne på gatan... hon inser inte att hon faktiskt behöver människor, att hon måste ha en kapacitet att lita på, acceptera och älska andra människor. Hon ser och smakar på det med Doug, och inser att hon kan ha det, och hon är inte död än.

Du filmade denna film mellan Twilight och New Moon, innan Twilight ens hade släppts, och du var fortfarande mycket ung. Kände du dig redo att spela en strippa vid den punkten i ditt liv?
Jag tror jag var 16 eller kanske nyligen 17 år när jag först läste manuset till Welcome to the Rileys. Jag var verkligen rädd, och jag är verkligen glad att filmen tog sin tid det gjorde att hitta sina ben, eftersom jag inte var i rätt stånd i livet att spela rollen då. Jag skulle inte ha hoppat in det så mycket. Jag skulle ha varit rädd för det.

Vad ändrades, förutom att du blev lite äldre?
För att kunna spela det rätt och inte vara en total bedragare, gick vi till strippklubbar och jag pratade med flickor i, liksom, riktigt äckliga barer. Regissören Jake Scott gav mig alla dessa riktigt bra böcker och inspelade band och nedskrivna samtal och berättelser från barn som vuxit upp på gatorna.

Har du pratat med tjejer som har vuxit upp på gatan, eller var du bara på klubbarna?
Jag gick inte och pratade med rymlingar på logier för hemlösa. Jag träffade inte någon som var under, jag skulle gissa, 25? Jag pratade bara huvudsakligen med flickor som berättade roliga historier. Vi grävde inte riktigt i deras historia, men de böcker och saker som Jake gav mig var verkligen mitt i prick.

Vilken var den bästa boken?
Gud, det är ganska roligt att berätta detta- det var en speciell bok som perfekt och bilder som var riktigt vackra och hjärtskärande, så konstigt. Den heter Raised By Wolves. Den är så bra. Den här killen gjorde sig omtyckt till världen av gatubarn i Hollywood.

Vad tycker du om unga människor som har fallit mellan springorna i livet?

Det är ett märkligt litet samhälle. Det är en värld av människor som lever i en ond cirkel, du vet, en förändrad, trasig, konstig existens. Men de är alla en familj, och de får det att fungera. Mallory tar sig ur det.

Skrämdes du av något medan ni filmade?
När jag filmade förlorade jag mitt sinne lite. Jag var så bekväm. Jag bokstavligen stampade runt i staden i fisknät och hälften av en morgonrock, typ gick från inspelningen från baslägret och tänkte "Nej, skit i det, jag bara går, oroa er inte för det." Jag hade absolut ingen rädsla i världen. Man vet aldrig om du kan göra något förrän du gör det.

Du är under större press än de flesta skådisar på grund av Twilight, och uppfattningar om att bli fast i ett fack.
Ja, och du vet, det avskräcker mig inte på något sätt, men det är något som jag tänker på när någon frågar: "Har något förändrats" Det har det, men arbetet har inte förändrats.

Du är på väg att filma den sista filmen i Twilightsagan, Breaking Dawn. Njuter du fortfarande njuter av det, eller är du desperat för att det ska sluta?
Jag kan inte vänta med att göra det, kan inte vänta med att få ut det... det är den galnaste, längsta uppbyggdnaden. Det är precis som, Kom igen och gör det någon jävla gång, vet du vad jag menar? Men samtidigt är det sorgligt. Inte för att vara helt och fullständigt uppriktig, men- jag vet att en del människor tycket att de är dåliga, men de skulle bli riktigt dåliga om skådespelarna inte älskade dem.<3


På engelska

I'm about to play an emaciated pregnant vampire, so I've stopped using as much butter as Paula Deen – just until Breaking Dawn is over." 

– Twilight star Kristen Stewart, who's cutting out recipes from the Southern cooking diva to prepare for the franchise's fourth film, to People.

På svenska>

"Jag ska spela en utmärglad gravid vampyr, så jag har slutat använda så mycket smör som Paula Deen - Bara tills Breaking Dawn är över" - säger Twilightstjärnan Kristen Stewart, som klipper ut recept från Southern cooking diva för att förbereda sig för seriens fjärde film, till PEOPLE.



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."

Stewart, it's clear, is still grappling with fame, which came at her hard and fast when at age 17 she took on the role of Bella Swan in the "Twilight" vampire franchise, whose fourth installment begins production next month. She's always trailed by paparazzi. A frenzy breaks out whenever she's spotted off-set with "Twilight" co-star Robert Pattinson; tabloids speculate breathlessly about their personal lives.

(One celebrity website, for example, recently gushed about its "exclusive new details" on the pair's visit to a Play N Trade video game store in Prairieville, La., where they are preparing to film the first part of "Breaking Dawn." If you must know, they reportedly bought the game "Fallout: New Vegas.")

Unlike other young stars like Justin Bieber or Lindsay Lohan, who seem to relish sharing tidbits about their lives with fans on social networking sites like Twitter, Stewart has strenuously resisted constant demands to divulge more of herself to the public.

In past interviews, she's displayed a penchant for stuttering and eye rolling, consequently developing a reputation for being sullen, or awkward. During a 2008 interview with David Letterman, she self-consciously referred to herself as "actually really boring."

"I don't have a personality fit for television. I just don't," she admitted, sounding genuinely friendly. "Even when I really feel like I've had fun with something and been totally fine and we talked about stuff that I thought was interesting — even then. I don't know. It's getting easier. It used to be a lot worse. And it's totally my fault, too. I guess I just put too much pressure on myself before, and it showed."

Though she started acting half a lifetime ago — garnering early acclaim from the likes of Jodie Foster, who co-starred with her in 2002's "Panic Room," and Sean Penn, who directed her in 2007's "Into the Wild" — Stewart says she's been unable to nail a performance as a carefree, charming or cute interview subject, because that's simply not who she is.

Sixteen-year-old Dakota Fanning, who costarred with Stewart in "The Runaways" this year, picked up on her uneasiness during the film's media tour.

"I think that her being uncomfortable doing interviews — Kristen is exactly who she is. It's something that I admire her for," Fanning said. "When she's doing an interview, she really thinks about what she's saying. She's a truthful, honest person, and wants that to come across so badly."

Things got so bad, her team sent her to media training.

"Basically, they told me that I should be ready for any question that's thrown at me, and I should have a stock answer, because then it won't confuse things and you'll never be caught off guard," she recalled. "And there's no way to do that. There's no way to be prepared for a conversation with someone you don't know about something that means the world to you."

Regissören för WTTR jämför Kristen med Meryl Streep!

Movie Trailers - Movies Blog

NEW YORK — “Welcome to the Rileys” director Jake Scott has used phrases like “emotionally naked” and “got dirty” to describe Kristen Stewart’s performance in the film. The 20-year-old actress plays a broken young woman thrust into a life of stripping in a seedy club and selling her body in fetid motel rooms.

At the film’s red-carpet premiere in Tribeca on Monday night, Scott continued to hit on those same themes of unvarnished emotionality, comparing KStew to one of the most critically lauded and emotionally expressive actresses in Hollywood.

“That’s like Meryl Streep stuff, you know?” he told MTV News.

He was speaking specifically about how Stewart took on such a demanding role at such a young age — and how she delivered such a top-notch performance. “I know that she put a lot of herself into that role,” he said. “She was exposing herself emotionally. In order to do that, you have to put yourself there. It was an act of courage on her part, especially considering she was only 18.”

Stewart’s co-star, Melissa Leo, agreed, telling us how she and James Gandolfini watched in awe as KStew blossomed on the “Rileys” set. “I met Kristen at a very special time,” she said. “She had just done ‘Twilight.’ She had been acting for a while. She has always carefully chosen her roles. Playing the character, she was acting for the first time as an emancipated actor. It was a treat for James and I to watch her spread her wings.”

That’s exactly what Scott was watching on the red carpet Monday, as Stewart strode confidently from interview to interview. “She’s grown up,” he said. “She’s a woman now. She was a girl when I first met her. I’ve now known her probably three years. She’s just becoming this wonderful woman.”
