Kristen Stewart: Twilight Star Keeps Indie Cred - Profile By Variety

 

Kristen Stewart's been living a double life. By twilight, she stars as Bella Swan in the red-hot vampire franchise (the first two, "Twilight" and "New Moon," have grossed more than $1 billion worldwide, and "Eclipse" earned nearly $300 million domestic).

But while these global blockbusters have supercharged her career, the 20-year-old actress has also been moonlighting in such edgy indie films as "Welcome to the Rileys" (as a strung out New Orleans stripper) and "The Runaways" (where she portrayed hard-living '70s rocker Joan Jett). Both premiered at Sundance and further cemented her reputation as that Hollywood rarity, a beautiful actress more interested in substance than glamour, and with the acting chops to back it up.

The L.A. native has showbiz in her DNA -- her father's a TV producer, her Aussie mom a script supervisor -- and was discovered by a talent scout at a school Christmas play. After some small TV roles, she appeared in "The Safety of Objects" and then got her big break playing Jodie Foster's daughter in the David Fincher-directed 2002 thriller "Panic Room," mixing it up with provocative dramatic roles along the way, including a memorable turn as an underage, desert commune-dwelling seductress in Sean Penn's "Into the Wild."

Despite her new career trajectory, Stewart shows no sign of wanting to leave her indie cred in the dust. She just wrapped production on "On the Road," an adaptation of the Jack Kerouac novel directed by Walter Salles that shot in Argentina, and will play a male-to-female transsexual in "K-11," a prison drama co-written by her mother, who will also direct.

Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart - LATEST! Eclipse producer confirms R-Patz and K-Stew relationship - Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart - Twilight - Eclipse - Eclipse Premiere - Eclipse Premiere Pics - Robert and Kristen latest - Celebrity News - Mar
As filming for Breaking Dawn finally gets underway, Twi-stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been making themselves at home in a swanky New Orleans pad,where they’ll play house while shooting the first installment of the final Twilight films.
The pair reportedly moved into the low key, rented accommodation after arriving on location earlier this week, ready for the final round of pre-production checks.
But far from ultra-glam, it’s said their £2,535-a-month love nest is relatively understated, featuring a games room and hot tub to keep them occupied.
And after being kept apart by a whirlwind of filming and publicity tours this summer, it seems the loved-up stars are looking forward to spending somemuch needed alone time together.
‘Rob and Kristen had a chance to stay apart... but they turned it down and asked for a place together,’ one insider revealed.
‘Rob flat out said, "I can’t complain, I get to be with Kristen the whole time"' another source added.
‘He’s head over heels in love with her.’
‘They are completely inseparableRob feels like she is the only person who understands him.’

The Buried Life Cast Reveals How They Stole A Lock Of Robert Pattinson's Hair



On Monday's all-new episode, cast members Dave Lingwood, Ben Nemtin and Duncan and Jonnie Penn accept a dare from their fans to steal a lock of Robert Pattinson's hair. "It seemed like the most impossible thing to do from the list our fans sent," says Jonnie Penn. Now able to cross another item off their list of things to do before they die, Jonnie dishes to UsMagazine.com on the group's R-Pattz game plan.

UsMagazine.com: Way to be the envy of women everywhere now that you've bonded with one of the world's hottest vampires! How did this whole plan come together?
Jonnie Penn: The item we wanted to cross off our list was No. 48: accept a dare. This season on the show, we wanted to do things that were really difficult and we asked the audience to challenge us to do something we didn't want to do. Stealing a lock of Robert Pattinson's hair seemed like the most impossible from the list our fans sent us on Facebook. Someone wrote in asking if we'd steal Mike Tyson's tiger from The Hangover, which sounded also very difficult, but could also be deadly, so we decided not to do that one.

Us: Were you a Twi-hard when you began this task?
JP: I was as familiar with him as the next person, but we had to do research online and on Twitter beforehand.

Us: You didn't have R-Pattz posters on your bedroom walls?
JP: No. But now I do! [Laughs]

Us: Dave and Duncan joined you on this task, which involved a movie premiere, an after-party and a tiny pair of scissors. Who was the one who actually yanked out his hair?
JP: Honestly, it wasn't a tackle and take down. We told him Rob we were dared to steal a lock of his hair and asked if he'd do it. He looked at me like I was crazy, but he ultimately said yes. We explained that it wasn't something necessarily that we were asking him for, but we told him the truth that we were put up to it. I guess he considered it and figured one little hair wouldn't hurt. He played along, which I commend him for. We chatted a little bit -- he was with two friends.

Us: Do you know if Rob watches The Buried Life?
JP: I don't know, but I wouldn't be surprised if he gets asked about this. That would be cool if he watches. We could use a vampire on The Buried Life!

Us: So, do you prefer Rob bearded or clean-shaven?
JP: Well, No. 15 on our list [of 100 things to do before we die] is grow a moustache, so anybody who can cross that off before me I commend!

Us: So where did the hair end up? On eBay?
JP: We talked about exploding it out of a cannon, and Duncan joked about putting it under his pillowcase so he could sleep at night. We also considered using it to grow another Robert Pattinson, but none of those ideas panned out. I feel like we did the right thing with the hair in the end, which you'll see on Monday's show.

Us: While you were vampire hunting in L.A., Ben traveled to Rochester, Minn. to visit with Lexie, who wanted help crossing an item off her own life list.
JP: It's a cool opportunity to become friends with someone that lives across the country just by sharing a common experience and Ben and Lexie really hit it off. Lexie's list item was to make it OK to talk about depression, which is a pretty big goal. We thought that maybe we couldn't solve the whole thing in one fell swoop, but wanted to try. She emailed us and we contacted her from there. The big saving grace in helping Lexie was the charity To Write Love on Her Arms. We're big fans of them for sure. They helped Ben put on this event and made Lexie feel like she wasn't alone in this goal. It takes a lot of courage to be that one person to speak up.

Us: I hear you had a special guest at the event.
JP: It didn't make the episode, but Ben told the audience he had a special guest who was filming some vampire movies and everyone went nuts. Everyone was surprised it was just a Robert Pattinson cardboard cutout! I think Ben even cut out a bit of his "hair," but that didn't count.

Us: You got the real thing anyway!
RP: The challenge was to get the biggest celebrity in the world and get a piece of his hair and we managed to do it in a way that anyone could do. So this is your step-by-step guide to meet Robert Pattinson!

Find out what happened when the guys cornered Rob to steal his locks -- and what they did with the famous strands -- when The Buried Life airs Monday at 10:30 p.m. (EST) on MTV.

James Woods Says Kristen Stewart Is “One Of The Best,” Compares Her To Brando


Talk about the compliment to end all compliments. We spoke with uber-iconic, Academy Award-nominated actor James Woods at the Welcome to the Rileys screening and he gushed - GUSHED - about Kristen Stewart (photos).

The pair may be working together on the movie American Girl (he’s directing), and he could not say enough nice things about the actress. You know, like comparing her to Marlon Brando and Robert DeNiro and calling her “one of the best of her generation, if not the best.”

No pressure or anything! Do you think Kristen Stewart is the best actress of her generation? The next DeNiro? Oscar-bound? Share your thoughts in the comments and check out pics from the screening below.

Breaking Dawn Source: Sexy Stuff Is "Dead On"




Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, EclipseSummit Entertainment
The Twilight gang has taken over New Orleans, with Breaking Dawn filming set to start in about two weeks. And while Marc Malkin has told you all how "intense" that birthing scene is going to be, we're dying to know about the sex stuff!

Aren't you?

One of our New Orleans sources got their hands on the script, since the cast is in pre-production. So naturally we needed to know if that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, er, Edward and Bella, sex scene is going to be all that hot:

"It's dead on with the book," our source says of Melissa Rosenberg's script. "In fact, there is a little more sex in the movie, and more sexual dialogue. The script is actually good. Really good."

Too deelish! If you need a refresher, Rob and Kristen's characters finally get it on during their honeymoon, and it's pretty rough (for lack of a classier word).

"The script has a pretty sexual tone with a lot of the characters this time around, not just Edward and Bella."
Do tell!

"There is obviously a big emotional factor in how it's written," emphasizes our source. "Still—a lot of this will be left up to Bill Condon to decide how to portray it."

Now that, Twi-hards, is a great thing. Take Gods and Monsters—that is an incredibly sexual film without seeing too much. And apparently we will see something in Breaking Dawn!

We have a feeling Condon will keep the sex scenes (he better!) and make it even more hot on the big screen.

"Remember, the most important thing above everything else is the rating," 'fesses our insider. "We have to keep that in mind. It's essential."

Melissa Rosenberg has told us she thinks Breaking Dawn can get "awfully sexy" with a PG-13 rating, and we'll take what we can get.

So does this get your blood pumpin' for the final Twilight films? It certainly does us, we can assure you.

Breaking Dawn Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg Expands On Twilight's Story - "It's An Adult Story, But Sexy"

"Breaking Dawn" Screenwriter Expands on "Twilight's" Story

Fans of the “Twilight” films are going to have a little added story to sink their teeth into.
The previous movie adaptations of Stephanie Meyer’s vamp-lit juggernaut have gone pretty much by the book, but with the final novel “Breaking Dawn” being broken into two feature films, screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg tells PopcornBiz she’s enjoying a little more leeway to add some fangy flourishes of her own.
“I did actually [get to do that], because we got to fill out the story because we're doing the next two movies,” said Rosenberg. “So there was room to play and expand on some of the characters that Stephanie introduces. That was a lot of fun.”
“It's a much more grownup movie – It's an adult story,” the writer said of evolving the franchise beyond its high school origins. “The stakes are raised even higher because it's not the story of teens. It's the stories of grownups, so we're talking about marriage and children and family – and these are pretty grownup things, but sexy.”
If you haven’t read the books, beware of the SPOILER up ahead.
Rosenberg says the highlight of the story will be seeing Kristen Stewart’s character Bella become a vampire at long last. “Kristen gets to make the transformation and that is going to be so exciting to see. [Director] Bill [Condon] and I talked about it in developing this script and the screenplay. Now she's going to embody it. It's going to be so great.”
Rosenberg, who penned all of the “Twilight” films and previously wrote for Showtime’s “Dexter,” hasn’t quite adjusted to the fact that, minus a few rewrites, her bloody good run is coming to a close.
“It's a shocking experience after four years to not be writing ‘Twilight!’” she said.

Preview Clip & Stills Of The Robert Pattinson/Edward Themed Simpsons Episode










Above: New stills of the Twilight-themed episode of The Simpsons have just landed
ABOVE: Robert Pattinson-inspired 'Edmund' falls madly in love with Lisa Simpson
ABOVE: Edmund the vampire and Dracula sink their teeth in the Homer's neck!
ABOVE: Twilight meets The Simpsons: Homer gets a ride on Dracula


WHEN we heard that The Simpons have created a Robert Pattinson-inspired Twilight character for their Halloween special, we knew we had a treat in store.
But after seeing these brand new stills from the Robert Pattinson Twilight episode of The Simpsons, we simply can't WAIT for Halloween!

In the special Tweenlight epsiode, 'Edmund' the vampire falls head over heels in love with Lisa Simpson.

And the creators of the animation have made sure that Twi-hards get their fair share of Edward/Bella references as the pair's love grows.

Check out the forest backdrop as the two get cosy, the moment when Edmund saves Lisa from the school bus with just one hand and the time when she rides his back as they scale a building.

And it's not only Lisa who gets involved in the Twilight action in the new epsiode. 

Hilariously, Homer Simpson is targeted by both Edmund and what looks to be Dracula, with the pair sinking their fangs into either side of his neck.

We laughed when we saw the classic Simpsons character trying to ward off the vampire with a wooden cross. 

And now we are dying to see it in full!

Kristen Stewart Reveals Her Aspirations To Work As A Movie Producer







Kristen Stewart (photos) is just 20 years old, but she clearly has a knack for picking varied, interesting and challenging projects to work on. Let’s review, shall we? High school rape survivor (Speak), terminally ill teenager trying to lose her virginity and experience love (The Cake Eaters), iconic rocker Joan Jett (The Runaways), an angst-filled teen prostitute (Welcome to the Rileys) and a clumsy vamp-lover (Twilight)… to name a few. Her obvious interest in exploring unique, character-based stories has left us wondering for a while: when is this woman gonna produce her first movie? WHEN, god damn it!?


Co-star (and, er, brother?Robert Pattinson (photos) has been quietly producing some of his films recently, and we wanted to find out if and when Kristen was gonna do the same thing. Here’s what she told us Monday night at the Welcome to the Riley’s screening. “Sometimes you have ideas or you read a book or something and you go like, ‘I don’t want to give that away to somebody else, I’d really like to do that myself,’” says Kristen, “but the more you work with people you really respect and that are incredibly talented and smart the more you realize you should probably wait to do that. But eventually, definitely.”


Clip above! And be sure to check out Kristen talking to theFABlife about being a mom in Breaking Dawn and relating to her character Mallory from Welcome to the Rileys.
