Kristen Stewart In The Daily Mail

kristen elleukKristen Stewart talked to the UK’s Daily Mail to promote The Runaways, which just came out on DVD. She talks about her Twilight experience and media perception. The way the reporter describes Kristen’s reaction is the one that we have always personally had with her, that she trips over her words because she is so wrapped up in really wanting to say what she means the right way, not that she is arrogant or doesn’t care.

“It was tough because I only had a really tiny window of free time, but I wanted to make the movie. And I didn’t want to get any older because I’m already older than Joan was when she was in the Runaways,” says Stewart. “I just crammed it in, and hoped that it would work. And it did. It’s nice to switch to movies like this between Twilights, but I’m excited to go and do the next couple of years of Bella’s life.”

She arrives for our interview looking elegantly sophisticated in a black mini-dress with her dark hair pulled up behind her head in a bun. Yet she confesses: “When I dress up, I have to have a lot of help. I was in a T-shirt until a few minutes ago.”

Like the teenage Joan Jett, Stewart has a sullen, almost surly look, which proves to be misleading, because she willingly attempts to answer questions, thinking carefully before she speaks but sometimes finding herself unable to articulate her thoughts.

“It’s impossible to always get across what I’m trying to say, but, if I just stay honest, then I’m not going to look back on any of these interviews and wonder what I was trying to do or be,” she says.”

    I love her! I find her awkwardness to be so endearing. Some think it’s an act, but I like her honesty.

  2. Rogue
    Clumsy as a poison because of your mouth
    Poisoning my wounded heart
    There is a chest inside this mad desire
    Bleeding lips of those poisoned
    In a lacerating bite so deep
    Painfully in which the blood floods
    The lush floor of your room
    If I spill my blood as I speak softly
    Not only will this drain my
    For the love of me is not torture
    And yes indeed an adventure
    Ah! How would it be? Ah! My God, how would it be?
    Dying in your haste to vampire
    Numb love in your waist

  3. You don’t have to be anything more than who you are right now, Kristen. Your fans get you. That’s it 🙂

    • I agree. I really love her and love her honesty and that she just tries to be herself. You’re great Kristen!

    • switzy4ever14 says:

      I completely agree with you. While the media grasps her awkwardness as not caring, we see it as true care about the movie and her character.

  4. I thought she did a great Joan Jett, I was pleasantly surprised. As for the movie, I didn’t care for it. I lived through the 70’s and they were wild, but its a miracle those girls survived. I felt like I needed a shower after I watched it…. but Kristens acting was really good.

    • Vampire-girl says:

      I agree am an 80s born girl so didn’t know of them but had heard a couple of songs on Guitar Hero. I didn’t really like the movie not my thing but I loved Kristen’s and Dakota’s performances especially the bit where she had enough and refused to sing.
      I like how she is awkward and so appreciative of how she is and where she is now great down to earth girl
