KRISTEN STEWART IN PARADE MAGAZINE
Kristen Stewart was recently featured in an article for Parade Magazine in which she talked about her upcoming film “The Runaways” in which she co-stars with fellow Twilight cast member Dakota Fanning. She talks about playing Joan Jett, her opinion of Rob Pattinson in “Remember Me”, and what it’s like to play Bella Swan.
Kristen on Twilight Fans:
“I’ve never been so fanatical about something. I never had that thing that I’m obsessed with. But, I’ve followed things for years like bands and movies and actors. I completely get what they’re feeling. Personally, it’s just so cool for me to be able to go back and follow a character for so long in successive movies. The fact that fans love them helps give me the chance.”
Kristen on Playing Bella Swan:
“You have to live something when you film it. I know from the outside Twilight looks a big commercial movie. But, it was more difficult to play Bella than a lot of other parts I’ve done. And, she’s still developing because I’m not finished yet. It’s more of an exploration of a person’s journey.”
TWILIGHT: THE LOVE STORY THAT NEVER DIES
ou’ve devoured the Twilight novels, swooned at the glossy movies and bought the Bella and Edward action figures. You’ll be at Oxford Street at midnight on Sunday for the release of the New Moon DVD (hmv.com’s most pre-ordered title to date). You’ve read all 12 leaked chapters from Stephenie Meyer’s unpublished sequel, Midnight Sun. You’ve booked your tickets to see Robert Pattinson in his new romantic drama Remember Me, and you’ve cancelled your July holiday because that’s when the third Twilight instalment, Eclipse, is due for release. You are what’s known on the blogosphere as a Twi-hard, and this is a special day for you. Twilight: the Graphic Novel is here.
Claudia Mody, children’s fiction buyer for Waterstone’s, is just as excited: “The Twilight graphic novel is our biggest single order for a new graphic novel. Even fans who have read the books and seen the movies many, many times should love it.”
KRISTEN STEWART SINKS HER TEETH INTO THE “BACKWOODS”
How does a girl keep busy between Twilight movies? More work: Kristen Stewart is set to star in Backwoods, an end-of-the-world drama. Stewart’s costar will be the impeccable Julianne Moore, whose husband Bart Freundlich is directing.
Oh, how I wish that I could bid on that guitar!! As of right now, there are no bids but there is a reserve so it’s not like you can swoop in and get it for nothing.
I appreciate the DVD guide because there are so many variations of the DVD going on sale this weekend. I still want to know who will offer the free iTunes download like last year. I’m crossing my fingers that Target will have that included in their 3-disc set!
I appreciate Kristen’s honesty about how it’s difficult to play Bella. Bella Swan is an interesting study in character and personality – she’s a fragile human with a stubborn, strong spirit. She’s clumsy and thinks of herself as plain and ordinary while people all around her find her to be beautiful. There’s so many internal and external characteristics that Twilight fans obsess over that it’s truly impossible for anyone to live up to the fans’ expectations.
What do you think of the graphic novel? Have you bought it or do you plan to buy it?
