Here are some new production stills of Kristen Stewart in ‘Anesthesia’ film.
Kristen Stewart has recently featured on ELLE magazine, September issue. Kristen discusses about American Ultra and her other involvements in projects.
Have you ever seen Kristen Stewart take a selfie?
The answer to that question speaks volumes. She’s the only millennial A-lister who has built her career entirely on being a mysterious, kickass brand of cool. In a sea of giddy all-access-granted starlets, Stewart has the mysterious persona of a rock star – much like the Joan Jetts, Kim Gordons and Patti Smiths of the world.
At 18, she became the most famous actress on earth for playing an angsty, lip-biting teenager who falls in love with a vampire. As Bella Swan, the central part of the £2.14 billion grossing Twilight cash cow, she topped the annual Forbes list of highest-paid actresses in 2012, earning over £8 million per film (there were five).
For most actresses, this kind of box office win would be a blessing and a curse. It can be hard to escape such a defining role. And a lesser actress would have been stuck in tween hell forever. Not Stewart. She broke the mould, and then every rule, to find her cool.
She chose the indie parts more akin to a Hollywood rebel – Joan Jett in The Runaways, wild child Marylou in Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On The Road and Julianne Moore’s sulky daughter in last year’s harrowing Still Alice. And she worked with the most rarefied of fashion houses, Balenciaga and Chanel. Now there’s her latest, American Ultra, an offbeat action thriller centred on two stoners, played by Stewart and her Adventureland co-star Jesse Eisenberg.
In many ways, Juliette Lewis, a fellow Los Angeles-native who understands what it’s like to reluctantly grow up in the spotlight, was the Kristen Stewart of her time. She received an Oscar nomination for Cape Fear at 18, then went on to star in critically adored films such as Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers and Quentin Tarantino’s From Dusk Till Dawn. And Lewis too dated the big star, Brad Pitt being to 1990 what Robert Pattinson was to 2010. But she rebelled – and found new life with her band Juliette and the Licks.
After first meeting on set 13 years ago, the two reunited in Lewis’ LA home to discuss refusing to compromise and the power in ‘keeping it dangerous.’ ELLE listened in.
Juliette: I’m just going to introduce Teddy, my dog, on this tape, he is smelling Kristen. He usually doesn’t approach people [he doesn’t know] right away, but he’s being really nice to her.
Kristen: I can’t take any credit for that. I have three dogs.
J: Are you a dog person, or a cat person?
K: Well, I have three dogs [Bear, Bernie and Cole]. They make me feel safe. But I love cats, too. I had a cat for a while who I was really obsessed with, but when my dad, John, got cancer, he took him, and I didn’t really have the heart to take him back when my dad was better. They’d become so close.
J: You have the same energy from when I worked with you 13 years ago [on the set of Cold Creek Manor].
K: I thought you were so cool when I was a kid.
J: You have a distinct voice. Not just in the way you talk, but in your nature – it’s empowering. I’m just going to be goofy and say you’re the female James Dean.
K: Oh, f*ck you.
Here are the following transcripts of Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg interview with Buzzfeed for ‘American Ultra’.
Pretended to be someone your not?
Jesse Eisenberg: By profession.
Kristen Stewart: It’s what we’re good at slash we’re really good at pretending.
JE: I’ve been in handcuffs a million times for movies.
KS: Me too.
JE: this might not work with us, but keep trying.
Gone 72 hours without showering?
JE: Oh, 72. I thought you were going to say days.
BuzzFeed: Have you gone days?
JE: No, I would have said no way, but still I thought you were going to say days.
Watched a movie high and then had to rewatch it sober?
JE: No, there’s no reason to do that.
BF: You just watch it once and that’s fine?
JE: Yeah, it’s usually better.
Laughed so hard you peed?
JE: I peed so much I started laughing.
KS: You know what, unfortunately for us, I think that’s kind of a girl thing. You know what I mean? This is good.
Been high in public?
JE: I was once on the CN tower in Toronto.
KW: Yeah, me too.
What was that experience like?
JE: No, it’s just like very high up. In public. [Read more…]
