We’ve seen this happen a bunch to both Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. They give an interview and someone takes a comment out of context and tries to warp it into something it wasn’t. Oddly enough this doesn’t happen so much Taylor Lautner, but he hasn’t had as many outside projects and doesn’t do the same amount of press, so maybe that’s the answer.
Here’s how a self-professed Kristen Stewart non-fan came around after exploring Kristen Stewart’s coverage in the media.
The latest in Stewart’s supposed anti-Twilight campaign came during an interview with Australia’s Film Ink magazine, in which she reportedly flat-out says that that Snow White is a better role than Bella. Again, that’s the spin—here’s what she actually said:
It is fairly common to have your story as a woman, even if you’re the protagonist, facilitated by all of the male characters. It’s so rare to have a female lead character being so proactive. She pushes her own story forward, rather then being affected by all of the outside elements. Hopefully we do that, I’m really proud to be a part of something like that. It’s always food for women to feel empowered.
I mean, I can see how she probably finds this role more rewarding than Twilight, but is this really “harsh words for her passive character Bella Swan”? Or is she just echoing what many are saying about Snow White and the Huntsman: that it’s a Hollywood anomaly because it’s led by two strong female protagonists? For all I know, she may just be spouting off one of the marketing bullet points for the film, but at any rate, I hardly think it’s a deliberate dig at Twilight.
The author goes on to cite several more examples including a recent interview from Snow White and the Huntsman. Check it out here
