    If Kristen is going to be there, she should be leaving today (it’s already May 30th in Japan, I think).

  • Eme

    Crossing my fingers that she’ll be there! Maybe she left from NOLA after the after-party that featured a sorry ass Mrs. Fields’ cookie cake and strange pink balloon. Sorry, just had to say it. I’m a bad girl!!

  • Eme

    Thank you, Anna, for this and for suggesting we move to a new board!

  • Anna

    You are welcome.

    It was time. I would have done it earlier but I kept hoping old comments will come back somehow. Since that isn’t happening …………………..

  • Anna

    Hey, as long it tasted good ………………… LOL
    No comment about that pink thing.
    IDK, I hope she did but I wouldn’t be surprised if she doesn’t attend.

  • Eme

    It’s just that the show is featuring the Gabrielle bag promo, plus she has the new fragrance to rep so it just seems like it would be part of her contract to be there. Oh well. We’ll see.

  • Eme

    Yeah, those comments are in another universe never to be seen again.

  • Anna

    Yeah, it really makes sense for her to be there but she just wrapped the movie that, based on what she said, was killing her so who knows, maybe she’ll just go home to get some much needed rest.
    We’ll find out soon enough.

  • Eme

    Pfft! PS killed her also but she managed to attend at least one event while they were filming! Girl has the stamina of a bull! This is my selfish fan coming out because I’m having withdrawals!

    New fall/winter makeup collection campaign.

  • Anna

    (I like that nail polish *very* much.)

  • CJ

    She looks so good with the red lips.

  • Anna

    That’s more like coral shade on her but yes, she looks good.

  • Eme

    Beautiful.

  • Eme

    Is this a new makeup campaign?

  • Anna

    Yup!

  • Eme

    Any sightings of our lovely Kristen Stewart? Good day, everyone! For USA people, it’s Memorial Day – to honor those that have/and are serving our country. Stay safe, everyone, and have a good day.

  • Eme

    Damn! Chanel really knows a good thing when they have it!! I love the colors of the makeup line and I agree, Anna, I like the nail polish color very much!

  • Anna

    Campaign isn’t officially released yet, if I’m getting that right, so we might be getting more pics/ads.

  • Anna

    No sightings.

    Happy holiday, Eme.

  • Anna

    I want to see what she’s wearing. I like it from what we are able to see.

  • Eme

    Thank you, Anna. Hoping this means she’s in Tokyo!!

  • Eme

    Yes! She’s got color on!! And I do like what I am able to see, also.

  • Anna

    Or she’s sleeping 12 hours straight in her home in LA. LOL
    The show is soon so we’ll know.
    You are welcome.

  • Eme

    Aww, my fangirl heart wants it to be Tokyo. Sleeping is overrated and can be done on a first class jet cabin on the way there. I. am. such. a. selfish. fan. LOL

  • Anna

    Well, you are not the only one 😉

  • BrendaStar

    I second Eme’s thank you, a new board is much appreciated.

  • Anna

    LOL

  • Eme

    😉

  • Stephanie

    Same 🙂

  • Stephanie

    Yup 🙂

  • Anna

    Lucia Pica was apparently inspired by LA while creating it.

  • Eme

    🙂

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Thanks!

    Oh, man!
    I opened to see more expecting it to be another campaign pic but then . . . poo (sorry for my French but they deserved it.). Ugh!

    One silly question, though: do you think people know that’s Kristen they are looking at?

    PERSONAL SHOPPER

    Kristen Stewart shows, once again, that her inscrutability is one of her greatest assets. As the titular personal shopper in her second film with French writer-director Olivier Assayas, she might be described as a portrait of grief — so long as we can agree that grief is an abstract, enigmatic and altogether finicky subject for portraiture. Part ghost story, part psychological thriller, the genre-bucking film is an argument in favor of a long and prosperous Stewart-Assayas partnership.

  • Anna
  • CJ

  • Anna

    And here’s better view of Kristen (well, it’s *very* blurry but still).

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DBEgqW4UwAEqNyq.jpg

  • CJ

    Same clothes she was wearing at the director’s pic.

  • Anna

    Yeah. That was after they were done done. And then some of them went out to that bar later that evening, I guess.

  • CJ

    Possibly.

  • Anna

    And I think she wore those or very similar pants for taping of that French TV show while promoting PS back in Nov last year.

  • CJ

    Yes.

  • Anna

    OT

    What do you think, do we have an Oscar nom/winner here (well, at least till Meryl’s film starts its promo, that is)?

    https://twitter.com/IMDb/status/869565150537416705

  • MCR

    It’s cute that she lets her dog come to the party. 🐕

  • gillian kemp

    I hope she gets some recognition for this role. I know the possibility is extremely low, but she deserves it.

  • Eme

    Agree with everything you said.

  • Eme

    Maybe. It looks like a *meaty* role and Dame Judi Dench brings it every single time so I wouldn’t count out anything when it comes to her (or Meryl).

  • Eme

    Well. Sigh. I guess she’s not in Tokyo.

  • Anna

    I hope so, too.
    But I don’t really believe she will (with CoSM, winning that Cesar kept her in the game — she has nothing like that working in her favor this time around).

  • OG Guest

    I think it’s very possible that she’ll earn some recognition from critics awards. I have no expectation for anything else.

  • Anna

  • Anna

    What makes you say that?
    She probably isn’t but I don’t think that show happened yet.

  • Anna

    That dog was so many days on set that she deserves her own wrap party treatment. LOL

  • Anna

    You think? She would be in Best Actress not Best Supporting category this year and the way competition is shaping up already . . . IDK.
    IMO, her chances are almost nonexistent (even in theory).

  • OG Guest

    Great interview.

  • OG Guest

    I think critics really loved her performance. It was rather singular and mostly solitary. I wouldn’t say nonexistent though we may see her get named as runner up more than winner. The only thing that makes me hesitate is that it’s only 2 years on the heels of CoSM and a critics group like NYFCC or NSFC may not want to award her again so soon for working with the same director. So maybe LAFCA is her best chance 😉

  • Anna

    I do hope you are right.
    I, on the other hand, really don’t expect anything. Competition is/will be too strong and PS isn’t critically acclaimed like CoSM (nor is her performance). Back in 2015 she was riding on a wave of success (Cesar + all those promising projects lined-up to be released).
    She has *none* of those elements this year.

  • CJ

    Great interview!

  • OG Guest

    I’m not expecting it. I’m optimistic that there’s a good chance it might happen. I don’t think anyone should be surprised if it does like they were for CoSM – even that I was optimistic about.

  • Anna

    Oh, I won’t be surprised. We went through all of that already.
    (And, *if* it happens, we will again have days filled with hate aimed at IFC.)
    But . . . I personally am not going to even think about it happening.

  • Anna

    You are welcome, Brenda.

  • Eme

    It’s just we haven’t seen or heard anything. I’m just impatient. So there’s still a chance she’ll be there?

  • Anna

    I don’t think we knew she was going to be in Beijing last year either. Until she just showed up there.

    In theory, yes. But, who knows. I’m not counting on it (because Underwater just wrapped and she said she’s so tired).

  • Eme

    Sigh. Thanks, Anna. Good day to you.

  • Anna

    Same to you, Eme 🙂

  • Anna

    Tara’s new interview. She talks about Kristen and few other things.

    (I must say I don’t like one of her newest clients . . . at all. I hope she won’t become one of Kristen’s friends. Because . . . that girl is trouble. In the worst way. #sorrynotsorry)

    https://www.wmagazine.com/story/kristen-stewart-stylist-tara-swennen

  • Anna

    … After about five years I branched out on my own, and that’s when I began working with Kristen Stewart.

    How did you first meet?
    Her publicist of 15 years, Ruth Bernstein, put us together when she was only 14 years old for Into The Wild. We have remained tried and true ever since. Kristen was one of my first clients I got within the first year I started styling. It’s funny because the first look I dressed her in happened to be Chanel.

    Kristen Stewart has great personal style. How do you take that into consideration with your work?
    One of my greatest goals as a stylist is to create a balance of what my clients would like to wear, what styles are trending, and how I envision their fashion evolution. It is paramount to me to showcase their personalities, so the end goal is to refine and elevate whatever their own tastes may be. Kristen’s fashion sense has evolved as she has grown into an ever-expanding repertoire, so it makes it that much more fun for me!

  • Anna

    How does a new beauty look, for example Kristen’s buzz cut, influences the styling of their look?
    A new beauty look can have an enormous effect on the styling. I welcome this new bleached buzz cut on Kristen. It suits her perfectly and allows us to go in a new direction. I feel my part in it is to facilitate their evolution as its coming.

    The Cannes Film Festival is known for having super strict dress codes. How have you been able to work with the rules and maintain a look that feels appropriate?
    Kristen simply happens to not really be a gown person, so we have adapted her unique style to the event by keeping her dressy yet with her own unique twist on it.

  • Anna

    How does this more conscious way of styling work when you’re dealing with a client?
    Lately, I will just reach out to vegan brands I see on Instagram or hear about and will ask them to send me things to dress my clients in. Most of my clients share the same thinking, which is great. For example, Kristen won’t wear fur or wear snakeskin, but sometimes will wear leather – so we can be more responsible and shape the look. We are in an age where we need to become more responsible on all fronts and as a passionate fashionista- I think it’s part of my job to help from within now.

  • Anna

    !!! @ the first part and “please, god no!” @ the second.

    What else are you working on now?
    Tons of things! Kristen is launching a new project with Chanel, so tons of stuff for that. I also just picked up a few new clients like Ashley Benson and Bella Thorne!

  • Eme

    Interesting to see the whole clip. Is it just me – seemed at some moments during the interview that Kristen got distracted & was looking at the TV screen which appeared to be showing a Cannes panel?

  • Eme

    Well, let’s not borrow trouble. Hopefully, separate appointments weeks apart would do it.

  • Eme

    Yes!!! No fur or snakeskin!!!!

  • Anna

    That girl is asking for it, though (dropping Kristen’s name in interviews, talking about her on twitter . . . if she gets a chance, she’s gonna use it).
    Before Soko happened, I would have said “No way, Kristen would never!” but Soko did happen so …………………………….

  • Eme

    She looked great in the halter gown at N.Y. PS premiere! More fitted, sleek gowns like that would be great to me!

  • Eme

    She and Stella appear to be doing fine. I think the Soko episode was a really bad reaction to something going on in her life at the time. Who knows.

  • Anna

    They *appear* to be fine. For now. (Don’t get me wrong, I want this to last because . . . she had enough of drama related to her personal life.)
    But that girl would be a bad news even as a friend. Of any kind.

  • Anna

    Well, with Tara it seems to go this way: one solidly done fitting followed by many badly done ones (see: Cannes). Sigh.

  • Eme

    I don’t know anything about her. The only thing I know is that she dropped Kristen’s name weeks ago – and we had tabloid fodder for a few days about her saying Kristen was hot, blah, blah, blah.

  • Eme

    Yeah, smh that one of her pet peeves is “bad tailoring”. All I could think of was – does that include bad fittings?!!

  • Anna

    From what I know, she’s long past using/smoking pot only, if ykwim.
    And is letting men to treat you like peace of meat (I don’t see her minding that at all), if ykwim. If Kristen having new GF every 3 months last year wasn’t looking good, imagine switching them up (with photographic evidence) every week (I’m not exaggerating!).
    Yes, she’s only 19, I think, and she has a lot to learn but, right now, she’s walking talking trouble.

  • Eme

    That dog, as well as the other two, are probably very spoiled by their mom & extended family. They truly have *a dog’s life*!

  • Eme

    Wow. No words except where the f**k are her parents?! Jeez!!!

  • Anna

    Yup!

  • Anna

    She’s Disney child “star” so who knows. Stage parents maybe?

  • Eme

    Non-existent is what I say. Man, I’ll never understand the celebrity fame game.

  • OG Guest

    Bella? Idk if she’s trouble but she’s definitely a mess who is falling into the former Disney star trope.

  • OG Guest

    The first part is probably the Gabrielle fragrance.

  • Anna

    Yes, her.
    I think she’s a mess *and* a big trouble.

  • OG Guest

    She was definitely looking off to the side. Didn’t notice if it was a tv screen or someone from her team talking to her.

  • Anna

    I figured that part out. But, if Tara is involved, that probably means there will be public appearances and more than one.

  • OG Guest

    Yeah, at most she’ll get critics prizes.

  • OG Guest

    Yes. She did quite a few during her Balenciaga fragrance days.

  • Anna

    I think it was someone from her team as she looked distracted even during that Gala (Grazia?) interview but who knows.

  • Eme

    Thanks. It kinda distracted me, too. Like I was listening and looking at the video and then she turns her head and in my mind I’m immediately thinking – “what’s she looking at?” (or maybe “who’s she looking at?”).
    Talking about distractions – how is that top staying put? I’m kinda amazed (yes, I know it sounds petty but I am really curious).

  • Eme

    Oh goody! My fangirl heart is happy to know this!!

  • Anna

    LOL

    It will be appearances and/or photoshoots even.

  • nonA

    yes i think the tv screen was right next to them and she was distracted by it a few times. a great interview though. all that passion and intensity for the work!

  • Anna
  • OG Guest

    The wonders of double sided tape! Seriously, they use tape all the time to keep things in place.

  • Eme

    Yes, I have heard that but there isn’t much to the top so placement of the tape was done quite well. It is truly invisible and strong! Lol.

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • Anna

    These pics are from last night (she was with Stella and others at some kind of house party — probably her get together with her LA friends she hadn’t seen for awhile).
    The *only* reason I’m posting this is because it looks like she has full makeup on (at least on her eyes she does — that, to me, looks like professionally done smokey eyes thing; or maybe that’s just the angle and lack of good light fooling me).
    If it is makeup . . . new photoshoot is coming? (Wish we could see her nails, LOL.)

    PS very close to $1.3M. Any New Yorker here? It’s still playing at IFC Center. Go see it! LOL https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/95b652b9b9d3d039249fb66db58f3586b30e20918b5e7f9662ee2e46d5ae93cf.png

  • Anna

    Only $22 more? How many tickets is that exactly? Can someone just buy them? LOL

  • Anna

    New pics.

    Kristen and Stella. To me it looks like those are from when they still were in NOLA.

  • CJ

    It seems that Kristen is wearing the same T-shirt and Stella the same shorts they were wearing at the set. The pics are probably from Sunday in NOLA.

  • Eme

    And who better to represent the line other than a truly LA girl. Js.
    Colors of the ocean, sunlight, & a little neon glitter.

  • Anna

    Stella is wearing the same shorts she had on in that video from after party so probably yeah.

  • Anna

    New pics part 2.

    Kristen and Stella leaving NOLA on Monday, the 29th.

  • Anna

    OT

    Another trailer for a movie with actress I would *love* to see Kristen working with (plus, she herself is a huge fan so, universe it’s your turn now).

    https://twitter.com/IMDb/status/869908374468669440

  • Anna

    (P.S. That actor ain’t bad either so maybe two birds with one stone, universe? LOL)

  • Anna

    So Gabrielle perfume is jasmine + orange-flower + ylang-ylang blend.
    I think I might like it.

    Good short interview, btw.

  • Eme

    Yes, please. And Idris Elba, too.

  • OG Guest

    That’s like 1.5 tickets.

  • OG Guest

    Maybe. That does look like heavier makeup than she usually wears on a regular day.

  • Anna

    Well then, I hope someone goes and buys two.

  • Eme

    Can we order them on-line?! LOL

  • Eme

    Yes it was. Good for her.

  • Anna

    IDK? It’s IFC so probably not but maybe we should check. LOL

  • Eme

    Yeah, it’s IFC so ……………… And, I was kidding . . . sorta.

  • Eme

    Not my favorite picture of the ones in that shoot. Oh well.

  • OG Guest

    I’m sure someone will.

  • Anna

    Well, we know that there’s at least one pic that is far worse so ………….
    And, it’s Vogue, of course they won’t present her in the best light.

  • Anna

    Well, you know, that number is doing things to my OCD tendencies (LOL) so I would rather see $1,300,000 instead. Just kidding . . . sorta ;P

  • Eme

    Yup! I’m partial to rounded numbers myself. ;P

  • Eme

    MTE!!!

  • Anna
  • Anna

    So, JT and then gun control short? And the her first future film?
    Sigh.

  • OG Guest

    She didn’t say that.

  • Anna

    She didn’t. But it sure feels like that will happen. To me, at least.

  • CJ

    yep.

  • Toooten

    Hi guys, long time no see – I’ve been out of ‘commission’ for almost three weeks now. I caught a very aggressive virus infection in my lungs, and was rushed to the hospital. I was under oxygen life-support for the most of two weeks, and just got released from the hospital this afternoon – this experience has been a real eye-opener to me! I’m still sick, and will probably be so for at least another month, maybe two, but I can be at home which is a good thing. 🙂

    I have a lot of catching up to do – so many things happened while I was gone, so I’ll spend quite some time inhere the next couple of days, reading all the news about Kristen. Again thanks a lot to you guys for all the news you put up here, and especially Anna shall have a big thanks for all her hard work. 😉

    See you guys around. Cheers. 🙂

  • MCR

    Get well soon, T.

  • Toooten

    Thanks a lot MCR. 🙂

  • Anna

    OMG, Toooten!
    I’m sorry that happened to you but I’m glad you are on your way to recovery. Just . . . take care of yourself.

    (As for catching up . . . *something* super odd happened to this site and we lost *all* old posts, older than 2 weeks or so — that’s how far back you will be able to go now. But, as long as you are OK, everything else is . . . manageable. You may check “team Kristen” fansite, as well, for all non-paps pics news that aren’t on these boards any more, if you really wish.)

    Just . . . get well soon! 🙂

  • Stephanie

    I’m glad you released from hospital. I wish you a speedy recovery. Take care.

  • Eme

    Glad you’re home and on your way to recovery. Welcome back. Take good care of yourself!

  • BrendaStar

    So glad you’re getting better and visiting us here. Get well soon.

  • ME

    Happy to hear you’re doing better. Rest up.

  • Toooten

    Thanks a lot guys – it’s heart warming to read your comments, and I will be better soon. The doctors said I was lucky that I’m in such a good shape and overall quite healthy, so that will help me to a ‘speedy’ recovery. 🙂

    – I will start to take better care of myself, no more stress, and no more working 16 hours a day (the doctors AND my wife forbid me!) so I’ll stepping down in the firm and let the younger guys take over at lot of my workload, which is about time if you ask my wife AND my partners in the firm.

    I was with out a doubt the one that worked the most of the partners, but it was by my own choice – you know, you don’t think anybody else can do the job as good as you can (yeah I know, I’m full of myself! LOL) but of course they can, I just have to let go and give them more responsibility, and they’ll do the job just great. 🙂 so a lot more free time for me (maybe I’ll take up golf – naa I hate golf! ;-D )

    Yeah I’ve noticed something was a bit ‘odd’ on the site!? How come? New owners/mods/admins? I don’t know ‘team Kristen fansite’ is it any good? 🙂

  • Anna

    I’m glad things are going well, everything considered. You really were lucky, Toooten.

    As for the rest . . . man, do I understand you. I’m also one of those “if you want it done right do it yourself” people. Which isn’t exactly the best approach nor the fair one, not to us and sometimes not to others either. So, you just listen to your wife from now on — women always know the best 😉
    Joking aside, wish you the best in this new phase of your (professional) life. Just take it easy.

    We have no idea how nor why this mess with comments happened. Eme emailed owners of this site (same girls as before, no new mods) but they couldn’t fix the problem. It only happened here, Disqus works without any glitches elsewhere. So what the hell that was is a mystery I’m afraid we’ll never resolve. I’m just sad we lost everything that was ever posted here but it is what it is. Maybe it has to do with the memory space this site has (maybe storing all that info became impossible). Who knows? Anyway ………………….

    That other place I mentioned is the only good Kristen’s fansite left (it’s kinda like OKTBY because they have no paps pics policy too). It’s updated and has everything that is important posted.
    Of course, some of the things that happened can only be found in comment section like this one because it’s not like you can make a new board about one tweet or new fan video or those Chanel ads murals in NYC or something else (you know, the things we usually talk about).
    So . . . good luck with your catching up mission 😉
    And welcome back!

    “Totinos”

    Not just one of this past season’s highlights but one of SNL’s in general, this sketch brings back Bayer’s pizza-roll-obsessed mom for a spiritual awakening (with a little help from Kristen Stewart). A perfect end to an underrated trilogy.

  • Anna

    7. “Totinos”

    Repeating sketches is part of the fabric of SNL, but they are a challenge. Often, a revisited sketch will follow the same beats as the originals but with altered jokes. It’s why, as Seth Meyers pointed out when I interviewed him about the best Lonely Island short, the writers are maybe most impressed when their co-workers are able to revisit the world of a sketch and find not just something new, but something better. Airing before the Super Bowl each season, the “Totinos” sketches flew under the radar this year, but in its third incarnation, they were able to find something new, funnier, and more satisfying. It is a perfect end for the trilogy.

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • Eme

    I re-read this article again just to see if I thought the same thing I did when I first read it. I do.. It’s a measured, balanced write-up of the interview video below. She did a good job melding all Kristen’s answers in a readable, non-judgemental article without any tabloid references. And, she used Kristen’s quotes judiciously and without pushing any narrative of her own. I doubt any tabloid could use this article to spin Kristen’s words or answers into a negative narrative. To that I say, good job Anne Thompson.
    That being said, it isn’t exactly an enthusiastic write-up of our Kristen. To me, the neutral tone was almost too neutral, if that makes any sense. I get the idea that she was so focused on maintaining a balance and fair article that it almost seemed she was holding back as a writer. Oh well. Just my opinion (and I’m such a selfish fan I always want enthusiasm for Kristen). Don’t get me wrong. It was a good read.

  • Anna

    Like I said, she sometimes can make her preferences known but she tends to at least try to be a real professional (and it mostly works).
    Agree about your second point as well. That’s exactly the tone of that article and it’s soooooooooooooooo obvious. Anne is not and probably will never be Kristen’s fan. But, at least, she doesn’t hate her (as much) anymore.

  • Eme

    And I give her credit for the attempts to be neutral. She isn’t like others who don’t even try, ahem, Jessica Kiang- cough, cough.

  • Anna

    That Jessica woman is full of prejudices — about everything. RME

    Angelina Jolie is now officially one of Kristen’s neighbors.
    Man, paps are now going to have a permanent post at each gate of that community. SMH

  • BrendaStar

    Gorgeous picture and one I had never seen before. Thanks.

  • BrendaStar

    My uninformed response is surprise that Angelina would live in Kristen’s neighborhood even though I’m sure it is lovely. I imagined Angelina living somewhere even grander and further removed from other people. Hope it works out though for Angelina & family as well as all the neighborhood.

  • BrendaStar

    They are adorable IMO, and it must be true. Even some website wrote that 😉

  • Anna

    From Rosabotanica promo.

  • Anna

    Well, Kristen’s home is probably (one of) the most ~modest one(s) in that community but that doesn’t mean other are the same. Angelina apparently paid $24M for hers.

  • Anna
  • ME

    Is it too much to hope that they end up hanging out.

  • Toooten

    Yeah, didn’t Kristen pay about $3.5 million or so for her house?

    Actually quite ‘cheap’ for a Hollywood star.

  • Toooten

    I don’t think they will, they’re very different people.

  • Toooten

    Probably but I think it’ll pass soon.

  • OG Guest

    Have you seen any link to the entire collection? Other than some pictures on twitter here and there and I haven’t seen the full collection.

  • BrendaStar

    Thanks, I didn’t see much of the promo for that. I think it happened after the July 2012 scandal while Kristen’s position was still vulnerable.

  • BrendaStar

    I thought it was a beautiful collection, presented in a charming way.

  • Anna

    They are now when AJ is mother and want’s to get into politics and all that. But before all that happened ………………. So, who the hell knows what tomorrow will bring. LOL

  • Anna

    Kristen paid $1.95M, I think.
    Yup! I think the biggest luxury she “allowed” herself to have was/is that Malibu house. She even drives used cars (except for that Mini of hers). So, unless she’s giving money to people (and when I say people I include her family ::: cough ::: her mother ::: cough ::: too), I don’t think she’s a big spender. Which is good because we all think she has $75-100M based on how much $$$ she gets from her movies but if anything became clear from this mess J. Depp is in right now, is that, in the *best* case scenario, they only get to keep *half* of the money they earn (in which case, it’s not like Kristen has a lot to spend so if she’s not being careful about it ………………………………….).

  • Anna

    That’s an old collection presented last Dec in Paris (just like Paris-in-Rome show from Dec 2015 was recreated in Beijing this time last year).

  • Anna

    Yeah. It’s nice they let models to do a bit of dancing on the “runaway”.

  • Anna

    IDK. It’s a complicated situation. Pics of AJ + kids (and Brad possibly visiting them) are still quite pricey, probably. And then, stories about who moved on first (her or Brad) and with whom will start soon so paps will be watching to get exclusives, ect. That’s not ending any time soon, I’m afraid.
    And we are not talking only about “ordinary” paps here either — TMZ and FFL (agency that took those July 2012 pics) and other lowlives will be there too. Which . . . is not good. At all.

  • Anna

    That was for Florabotanica and it was badly handled by Balenciaga (everyone cringes at that live interview they set up for Kristen) but Rosabotanica came out in Nov or Dec 2013 and promo was in Jan 2014 (so everything was so much more relaxed).

  • Anna

    Brad lives fairly close to LF and that is why she picked Kristen’s gated community (it’s easier for him to visit his kids and for kids to go to his house that way), apparently.

  • Toooten

    Yeah I know she was a rebellious young woman in her youth, but as you know I’m not the biggest Angelina Jolie fan, and I still think there’s something cold and calculating about her, just like Jennifer Lawerence – they’re not all they seems to be, there is something hidden beneath the surface, something dark.

    Please don’t rip me a new one – it’s just my opinion. 😀

  • Toooten

    I think in the case of J.Depp, Mel Gibson and Jeremy Renner, just to name a few, that they’re not exactly truthful when it comes to their wealth and fortune, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it turns out that they have a lot more than they tell the court and the public.

  • Anna

    I can see that (IMO, better example is Taylor Swift). But, I don’t think they are using that trait in the same way/for the same things. Simply said, their goals are different and that *does* make a difference.
    Plus, and don’t get me wrong, it wouldn’t be bad for Kristen to pick up a bit of that, just a tiny bit — it will make her career so much more easier (especially, that one of a director). They way she thinks about certain things (in her line of business) now . . . not good.
    Whatever we may think about AJ (and she ain’t a saint, that’s for sure), she is managing to survive and even improve her professional life (in the industry and that one she created with her charities and stuff) living and dealing with *very* powerful men. And she did it on her own. Not everyone can do that.
    Complicated people are complicated people.

  • Anna

    Maybe. That wouldn’t surprise me at all.
    But still, the fact remains that half of the money they earn they have to give to the state, their agent, publicist, lawyer, ect. (and Kristen has all of them in her team).

  • Eme

    Greetings from the West Coast, USA. Happy weekend, everyone.
    Sigh. So no Tokyo pics. My Hope Train didn’t stop there. Oh well. We’ll be getting some promos for the perfume and fall/winter makeup collection soon enough. Patience is the word here.
    And as far as paps central for Kristen’s neighborhood now that AJ is there – ugh!! Crossing my fingers that whenever they are there (I agree with those who believe that it’ll be even more difficult to maneuver in/out of that neighborhood without getting papped), Kristen will ignore with radio and gesture silence. Js.
    And, if AJ ever does a sequel to Maleficent – I’m in with Kristen having a role in it – hardcore, baddass villian – YES!!

  • Anna

    I think Kristen didn’t exactly fit in what Chanel had on mind for that show: it was more of a showcase of their stars’ offspring ambassadresses/influencers, like J.Depp’s, W. Smith’s or S. Stalone’s daughters, and local celebrities so I kinda understand why she wasn’t there. Although, it would have been really nice seeing her there.
    IDK, Eme. She’s now showing middle finger salutes even on red carpets so I don’t think she will care how she will look in pap pics. Heck, she already doesn’t care. At all. And seeing how some of her friends are behaving, she’s just going to become more and more ~childish (I’m trying to be nice about this whole thing). So I wouldn’t expect anything good if that place indeed becomes new pap central. But I do hope your crossing fingers will work for the best. Because . . . we so need it.
    Maleficent 2 was announced back in 2015 (or was it last year?) and AJ will return for that sequel but since then it’s been radio silence about it. And I’m not sure I would like to see Kristen in it (I’d rather they make a drama together or a dark comedy). Also, it’s not likely they would want a former Snow White.

  • Anna

    Great weekend to you, too, Eme!

  • nonA

    hi and happy weekend back at you!

    some fans saw Come Swim as part of the Sundance traveling festival & they loved it, of course they/we are biased but it seems to be well-accepted by Cannes critics as well, which has been great news.

    it seems like i read that Angelina uses decoys alot of times to fake out the paps. but yes they’ll be circling the gate like vultures. however, kristen seems to be living her life openly so i don’t think she is as in demand by paps now for the ‘gotcha’ shot, even with Stella’s constant companionship. wondering if Kristen (& Stella) will go to S.F. to film “JT”, or if it will be shot in a studio somewhere.

  • Eme

    OMG! Forgot about Snow White! Not surprising since I try not to give that show any relevance, iykwim.

  • Anna

    LOL!
    OK, ikewym.

  • Eme

    Hi there! Lucky fans that got to see Come Swim!
    Let’s hope you’re right about the paps!
    If she films JT in SF area, I just might become a *stalker* just to see her in person, lol.

  • OG Guest

    Oh, I didn’t know. Thanks.

    These attacts in London are just soul destroying. Why?? Anyone in the UK?

  • Eme

    It is so incomprehensible. Your words so accurately describe these terrorist attacks – soul destroying. My thoughts are with all affected by these senseless attacks. Take care out there everyone.

  • gillian kemp

    The people of London haven’t recovered, from the last attack.

  • Eme

    It is pure evil that these attacks happened just days after Manchester. Terrorists have no souls.

  • Anna
  • Alfred Birchall

    I am in UK and unfortunately a relative of my husband ( Cousins son 29 year old Martyn Hett )was killed in the Manchester Arena attack last week. We had never met Martyn so it was by association but he had a very large Social Media following and a You Tube channel. He was a profile for LGBT in the Manchester area and lovely tributes have been made to the way he touched other peoples lives..This is a very bad time in Europe and the terrorists are obviously elevating their activity. Maybe its because of our coming election Jun 8th…It really is out of hand now ..So sad.. Sue B.

    #7 is . . . terrifying (because it’s accurate). All are but that one especially.

  • BrendaStar

    You have my condolences too on your loss. I just saw film taken earlier of Ariana Grande visiting hospitalized fans in a Manchester hospital. I also saw film of the Brandenburg Gate illuminated in colors of the Union Jack in sympathy with London.

  • nonA

    woah, these are funny AND realistic AND disturbing – he sure has a grip on today’s issues that we take for granted or ignore the gravity of.

    they remind me of Kristen’s ex Alicia and her illustrations, which are much lighter in nature, more “punny” than anything else. i saw a tweet that a couple of Alicia’s drawings were in Come Swim – had not heard that before. kind of awkward if those are in the film, but she would have been in the loop during the development of the project. (went over to her tumblr & saw that she posted how hard the past year has been for her.)

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • Anna

    New pics.

    Kristen at a gas station.

  • Anna

    And she met with Alicia after that. At Alicia’s place, apparently.

    Just …………………………………………………………. She simply can’t sort these things out, it seems, and move on.

  • Anna

    For the record, she was went out with Stella on June 1st, 2nd and 3rd. These new pics are from yesterday (the 4th).

  • OG Guest

    There are indeed pics of her with Alicia, it’s not just the paps’ word. They may just be catching up or trying to be friends. Who knows though, given their history. And there’s a lot of history…

  • Anna

    I know that there are pics. I saw them. I never said it was only paps’ word.

    Even if they are trying to be just friends, it’s still a mess, IMO (and I’m not even talking about public perception — that is in trash can since last year). Precisely because of all that history. It’s not like it’s been years since they broke up and both have new fully established lives (and even then, it would something that rarely happens). How can she work on her current relationship (if she wants to keep it, that is) while she’s having a recent ex in her life at the same time? If I was her new partner …………….

  • OG Guest

    I wasn’t accusing you of going by the paps’ word. I initially saw the Daily Mail said she went to Alicia before there were actual pics, so I thought you did too.

  • Anna

    When I read it, I though they were being usual s**t stirrers so I didn’t say anything.
    And then full set of pics was posted so I made my second comment based on that. BTW, Daily Mail will publish those, too. They’ll get more clicks for two instead of one article.

  • Anna
  • OG Guest

    Well Kristen carries a backpack around often. Doesn’t necessarily mean she was “spending the evening”. We’ll see.

  • Anna

    IDK.
    Either way, it doesn’t look good. I mean, I bet paps did try to wait for her to leave (so they could get more pics). If so, I guess she either stayed the night or she left very late.
    You don’t do that the moment your current GF leaves town, even if you are just friends with your ex.

  • Eme

    Monday greetings to all. Hope everyone had a safe weekend. Sending positive thoughts and hope out to the world, especially UK.
    So, pictures of Kristen with Alicia yesterday. Hate the paps and the ongoing narrative about Kristen. Sigh. Who doesn’t do herself any favors with these new pics.
    That being said – no one knows anything. This meet-up could have had Stella’s blessing. It could be work-related (after all, didn’t Alicia do something for Come Swim?). It could be a lot of things. And, it could be nothing. I remember there was some questioning when Kristen was hanging out with Chloe a few months back which ended up being all ado about nothing. Yes, I know, Alicia is her ex so there’s history there. All I can say is – JT LeRoy can’t begin filming soon enough.
    Have a good, safe day everyone. Bbl.

  • OG Guest

    I think at this point it’s plausible to think that Kristen just doesn’t have traditional relationships. We don’t know what goes on or what she might disclose to her partners or what they’re aware of or not.

  • Anna

    Well, it doesn’t matter what she tells them because . . . she’s letting the whole world to see all that mess.
    You have open relationship(s)? Or multiple friends with benefits? You are a bed hopper? Fine, do as you wish. But, please, stop showing it for everyone to see. Especially when her whole career (which seems to be the most important thing in her life) depends on what people will think of her. Be at least mature enough in that way, ffs!

  • CJ

    where’s it from?

  • Anna

    Unfortunately, it’s not what really happened, it’s how she/it is perceived. I’m afraid, this only confirms what big majority of general public thinks of her: once a cheater always a cheater. And people hate cheaters, people don’t want to have anything to do with cheaters, people won’t support cheaters’ work.
    Kristen used couple of Alicia’s doodles in Come Swim but she didn’t give her any credit (which, IMO, wasn’t fair). I doubt they have any new business deals. And even if they did, such things can be discussed at some public place like a restaurant or something, no need to go to your ex’s house for that.
    As for Chloe, she’s now part of Kristen’s closest friends group. And I wouldn’t discount anything yet when it comes to her (Stella was a friend for months before they started dating).
    I have a feeling that not even JT filming will be able to stop this mess.

    Have a great day, Eme. Stay safe! Bye!

  • Anna

    Pap agency site.

  • Guest

    Hi, what’s the name of the site?

  • Anna

    Update #2.

    Pics of Alicia alone.
    Which confirms my theory that paps did stay there to see when/if Kristen will leave. And since we didn’t get those pics and, if these Alicia pics really are from the same day, they went inside, did whatever they did, Alicia changed her clothes and came out to pick up a bag from Kristen’s (?) car. Hell, even if that’s not what happened, you know people will see it that way.

  • OG Guest

    I think paps may be fudging with the dates. Alicia has different clothes in the pics of her alone. Supposedly she was seen in the same clothes as she was wearing in the pics with Kristen at a party on Saturday, which is when Kristen was still hanging with Stella. Maybe Kristen saw Alicia on Saturday with Stella’s knowledge, and then the paps just took pics of Alicia alone on Sunday (it’s happened before).

  • Anna

    Oh, definitely. That’s why I said if Alicia alone pics were indeed from the same day.
    But, here’s the thing: it doesn’t really matter. Because, they are trying to sell “she’s cheating again” narrative — that much is obvious.

    Do you have any proof of that Alicia at the Saturday party story?
    Kristen did wear the same jacket and a beanie in that CJ’s video from Saturday but she’s been wearing them constantly since she came back from NOLA so we can’t go by that (plus, I think she had different pants on in that video).

  • Anna

    For what is worth (and it probably isn’t much at all), I zoomed in and, to me, that car key Alicia is holding in her hand really doesn’t look like it’s from Kristen’s Mini.

    (And that pic of Alicia standing next to Kristen’s car seems somehow out of order. IDK.)

  • OG Guest
  • Anna

    Hmmm. Definitely the same sweatshirt and shorts and probably sneakers.
    Thanks!

    (And, please, re-fresh so you can see my edited post about car key.)

  • OG Guest

    I have no idea. We’ll know soon enough but my guess is that this was just a friendly visit. I’m just not sure how long those two can stay just “friendly”.

  • Anna

    Yeah. We have to see Stella’s next move. Kristen has that charity event on the 7th and Stella will probably walk that Moschino show in LA on the 8th. If Kristen doesn’t show up for the after party ………………………

    Agree. This is playing with fire and someone will get burned (if they are just being friendly and not actually going for more because if they are doing that, they are asking for it).

  • Anna

    Hi!
    I just got that screencap. From person who is buying those pap pics. Sorry.

    Someone both those 2 tickets, you guys, and PS crossed $1.3M mark at BO. LOL

  • BrendaStar

    Hopefully Kristen is just helping out Alicia who may be going through a bad time. One thing that I don’t understand is why did Kristen use Alicia’s doodles in Come Swim? Surely she could have avoided that.

  • Anna

    Good question, Brenda. Maybe the main characters draws them so she used Alicia’s? I honestly don’t know. What bothered me more is the fact Kristen didn’t credit it her (per people who saw Come Swim the other day) which isn’t fair (well, unless in case Alicia herself asked her not to).

  • BrendaStar

    Thanks. Kristen was careless as a director if she didn’t get Alicia’s approval. I knew nothing about Kristen’s visits with Alicia until I stopped here. I just googled Kristen and there were no blazing headlines yet. The DM story was referenced as Kristen pumping gas. Inside the story casually mentioned that Kristen afterwards visited Alicia who she dated in 2016. It is not a bad thing if Kristen is just helping out Alicia. Some people have a hard time getting over breakups. It will eventually get sorted out if that is the case. I am looking forward to the filming of JT Leroy project even though the film does not excite me.

  • Anna

    Yeah, I didn’t like that fact. But, who knows, maybe it was Alicia’s wish (to remain uncredited) so I’m not going to make any final conclusions about that.
    Well, even if she really is only helping Alicia it’s still a very tricky situation to handle because Stella is now part of Kristen’s life too. IMO, it’s like playing with fire.
    The subject of JT, the movie, is only interesting to me as a dark comedy/satire but I don’t think that’s what they will be going for. I just wish it had a much better director because certain potential is there but oh well.

  • Eme

    LOL! Well, here’s to Kristen’s N.Y. fans!
    OT: How about the great BO for Wonder Woman! Female superhero film directed by a female!

  • Anna

    Great numbers for WW. I just hope Hollywood won’t stop there (you know, like we are *still* waiting for Best Actress Oscar win by another African American actress more than a decade and a half after H. Berry got it — I remember everyone thinking things will surely change after that happened and yet, here we are).

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • Eme

    Yep.

  • BrendaStar

    I think I agree because if it is a dark comedy about how foolish Hollywood, celebrities, and the media are, then I would find that amusing.

  • nonA

    thanks for the quick synopsis, i missed all of this today….it’s ironic i just posted here yesterday that Alicia’s webpage had a post from a month or so ago saying that the past year had been hard for her. not necessarily that the breakup was 100% of that, could be other/family/work issues, but probably the relationship was a significant part. so i would not be surprised that she & Kristen are still in contact as friends, or potentially reconciling. however, the photos of them together show a degree of tension. jmo.

    so, who knows? she’s not the best, nor the worst, of people….and like all of us, they all deserve to live and love as they choose!

  • Anna

    New pics.

    Kristen in LA (Los Feliz). Alone.

  • Anna

    Update:

    Kristen leaving Alicia’s house, today, backpack and everything (in clothes from those pics that paps said were taken yesterday, June 4th).
    Draw your own conclusions.
    Me personally? I’m just getting *really* sick and tired of all of this. Because . . . everything has limits and, in some aspects, Kristen is this close to cross my red lines. I’ll wait to see what happens in the next few days but . . . I just feel like I’m so done with this s**t, with everything.

  • Anna

    When I said her gated community is going to become pap central this is *not* what I head in mind. But oh well, she’s digging the whole she’s in by her own choice.

  • Anna

    When even mods of your own fansite are stunned by your behavior and need to take 1 hour to post the rest of those pics ………………………… Kristen, you just touched the bottom.

  • OG Guest

    The pics are probably from the same day as the pics with Alicia. She was not wearing that today, there are different pics from today.

    And Kristen owes you nothing for you to be done with.

  • Anna

    Well, here’s the thing: why would paps go these lengths to fabricate a story? Because this right now isn’t just messing with one set of pics, it’s multiple sets on multiple days. This isn’t tabs creating narrative but paps. Something is off, you must be able to realize that yourself. When they said she went in to probably spend the night (in that description of yesterday’s set of pics), they never mentioned pics of her leaving, those were uploaded today. She could have left Alicia’s house in the morning and then went out in LF later on the same day (thus different clothes).
    It’s terrible when you are more inclined to believe paps than her because, well, her past behavior isn’t exactly working in her favor now. It simply isn’t. That doubt shouldn’t exist. Not for a second. And yet, 99% of fans are in the same state of big disappointment — this now has no way to be defended.

    You are right, she doesn’t owe me anything. But that doesn’t mean people will be willing to tolerate absolutely everything she does. She will keep living her life in the way she wants to, and she has every right to, and fans will do what’s best for them. Right now that means — moving on away from her. Just read their thoughts posted all over the internet.

  • Anna

    P.S.

    Just to be clear about this whole thing: I *will* wait to see what happens next as I don’t think it will take us long to figure out what’s real and what isn’t.
    But the sole fact that she found herself in this mess . . .again — ffs, girl. Even if it’s nothing, she’s old enough to understand that it won’t look like that to people. How many times she will have to fall in order to be more careful? You can’t beat that sh**ty system you are part of, willingly or not, Kristen, so accept it and act accordingly.

  • Toooten

    We don’t really know what happened – maybe Stella and Kristen have run their course, and maybe Alicia and Kristen is just friends now, but regardless of that I think Kristen simply doesn’t gives a s*it anymore.

  • Eme

    It’s been a very long time since she’s been papped by herself. From someone who believes that quiet, alone time replenishes the soul, I welcome this sight.

  • Anna

    I’m not interested to find out what really went down as much as I’m just puzzled by her behavior. There is that IDGAF attitude, with all its pro and cons, and then there’s this. Because this — going out with your GF one day and spending time (maybe even night?) with your ex in *her* house on the next day — is just not right. It isn’t! Not for someone who is 27.
    As I said below, it’s her life to live, she will suffer the consequences. But there is something really sad about this whole mess (because this *is* a mess even if it turns out she and Alicia are just friends).

  • Anna

    True, we don’t get to see her alone very often.
    But this is probably because her usual company is not in LA (CJ is with Stella, Suzie’s in France with her BF, Gabby in Las Vegas, ect.). It’s probably just a result of these special circumstances, not because she felt like it.

  • Eme

    Who knows? Maybe It’s the start of something new for her. Personally, I’d like to see her go it alone for awhile just to mix it up a little in her life. There’s nothing more empowering than to learn about yourself by being alone. Give yourself a year or two to breathe, Kristen.

  • Anna

    I so agree, Eme (and I think a bit of ~separation from some of her friends falls in the same category). But, we’ve been saying that for, what, a year and a half now and she did exactly the opposite so I don’t think things will change. IMO, she’s not doing what’s best for her (in the long run), not career wise nor private life wise.

  • Eme

    Well, it will be what it will be.

  • Anna

    As always. Sigh.

  • Anna

    I just compared light in those pics — Kristen having lunch with Alicia vs. Kristen leaving Alicia’s house — and it definitely is not the same, IMO. In the first set of pics, it’s late afternoon light and in the second set it comes from opposite direction and it looks like morning light (and that lamp above Alicia’s front door is turned on, like when you leave it over night and are yet to turn it off in the morning). For what is worth.

  • Toooten

    I agree, it’s not interesting what really went on, but on the other hand, these papz and tabloids always take things out of context, so as said we don’t know anything but what they ‘tells’ us, and I don’t find that interesting – they’re lying 99% of the time and twist the truth the last 1 %.

  • Anna

    IDK, Toooten.
    Even if they are lying, people will eat it with big spoon. So, it won’t matter in the end. And *that* is quite a problem.

  • Toooten

    Yeah I know some people will eat it raw, but then again, those people will hate her anyway and regardless what she’s doing, so I don’t think the damage is so big after all. At least I hope not.

  • Anna

    See, I kinda disagree.
    It’s one thing when they hate her because of 2012 as we can always say she apologized for it, she was young, she paid for it and she didn’t do it again. Plus, her reputation was becoming somewhat better because people were starting to be like “let her live, ffs, she didn’t kill anyone and it was one time thing” after good things that happened in 2014 and most of 2015. And not even 2016 and multiple partners didn’t manage to fully “restore” that cheater label as there was no evidence of those relationships overlapping. All of that changes with this mess. whether it’s real or not. So, IMO, there will/could be damage. And a big one.

  • Anna
  • Anna

    I guess this is kinda like confirmation Kristen will be there (yes, I have my doubts because there were few times she was announced for events like that one only to cancel them in last minute).

    (Full gallery was finally posted. Pics are dated as June 5th.)

  • OG Guest

    Not according to AdoringKS, which historically has the correct dates more often than the Brazilian account.

  • Anna

    IDK.
    Like, that *really* looks like morning to me (but I could be wrong).
    And even if it’s Sunday — it’s bad. Because instead of saying good bye to her current GF and her best friend who left town that afternoon, she spent time with her ex. That’s wrong on so many levels.
    In crazy case those pics are from Saturday (because of Alicia’s and Kristen’s clothes), IDK how she managed to get from Alicia to her home and then go to see Gabby performing with Stella and others as that show was at 7 pm PST. Even if she managed to do it, the question remains: why the hell are paps lying *this* much?! What do they want?

    So all 3 scenarios/options are bad, no matter how you look at it.
    Why does she have to put herself in positions that always turn into a mess? Once – I can understand it, twice – I’ll rise my brow but won’t say a thing but 3rd, 4th, … 10th time?! That’s just being reckless (to but it nicely).

  • Anna

    P.S. Even if they are just trying to be friends, I don’t think that’s a healthy situation. I mean, Kristen herself said they had on-again off-again relationship so why the hell continue that push and pull thing any further. It takes two for tango so this can’t be all on Alicia which means Kristen has serious issues she has to deal with ASAP (for her own good). JMO.

  • OG Guest

    It’s going to be pretty amusing to read your meltdowns in hindsight when she’s papped with Stella by the weekend, if not sooner.

  • Anna

    There’s no meltdown. That’s just me analyzing every option.
    You are operating under assumption that I’m not expecting it to happen and you are wrong. FYI, I think that very well might occur which will only make this whole mess even bigger than it already is. Because I don’t think we saw last of Alicia either, far from it.

  • Eme

    Hi, Anna. Just wanted to comment on one thing you asked – about paps “lying”. I absolutely have no respect for the paps and their agenda to me has been very clear since 2012 happened – and that is to continue the *Kristen is a cheater* narrative. So, I can absolutely believe that the paps are *lying* – they lied in 2012 by posting 50+ pictures that were repeats of the same moment to support their lies/agenda.
    Personally, I don’t care to explore any more of this *issue*. She met up with Alicia for whatever reason. Both were papped alone after the meet-up. I don’t know how this will affect Kristen’s career/personal life. All I want is for her to get back to working on projects (whether it’s filming or directing) so that I can read and see pictures of all of those projects.
    Sorry for being so blunt and I do hear your concern. Would I like Kristen to be a little more media savvy? Yes, but wanting her to do so has only frustrated me so I’m learning to accept who she is. And, I’ll be honest, some of what I am *seeing* doesn’t make me feel good. Js.

  • Anna

    I get you.
    You say “some” of what you are seeing. It’s been a year and a half since *most* of what I’m seeing is making me quite disappointed (mild word).
    I know I’ve said this so many times before but I really do wonder if there will be career worth following say in 3 or 5 years. Because, if people think those in the industry who have power over her career aren’t seeing this and aren’t shaking their heads…………………………………. Why would they pick her over someone equally as talented but with zero baggage who does follow all the rules of the game?
    Back in 2014 and most of 2015 we had rare moments of trouble/drama. Now we have rare moments of satisfaction while everything else is a mess.

  • Anna

    As for paps lying . . . I have no doubt in my mind that they do that. Quite often. But there’s something about this particular case that seems way off, even for their standards. There’s just too much “work” on their side invested in pulling this scam off. IF this is a scam. And it’s not even about wrong dates, that’s old and something we are all used to. No, this is them either telling us nasty truth or working too hard on putting her in the center of another affair. Either way — it’s bad!

  • Eme

    I say “some” because I am only *seeing* a split second or a moment in pap pictures. And the narrative of those moments are what others put on them – which may or may not be true. But, like you, I have been disappointed by some of those moments. But, I also remind myself, that the disappointment is coming from inside me and the expectations I place on her as her fan. Sorta like what I do with my heroes. Everyone has feet of clay.

  • Eme

    The operative word is “invested”. I think they definitely are that all of the time – invested in moving their agenda, whether it’s Kristen or some other public figure. And, I don’t know if I’m privy to everything about Kristen, but I did a quick google search of her today and only found *articles* about her pumping gas or the alone pics from yesterday. But, I also didn’t click on the articles so don’t know what the narrative was in the write-up.

  • Anna

    It’s the pattern these moments are creating that worries me. On their own, majority of them can be explained but when you step back and look at a bigger picture . . . they don’t make pretty view.
    There comes the time when finding excuses/explanations becomes pointless.

  • Anna

    No, these pics didn’t hit tabs. Yet. Which is one more odd thing about this whole ~case.

  • Eme

    Agree. That’s why I’m focusing on the work. And, if the time comes (which I hope won’t) that there is no longer work that interests me, then I’ll move on as I have done before with others.

  • Anna

    Yep!

  • Anna
  • nonA

    it would nice to be idealists & hope she “behaves” in accordance with each one’s expectations….but nope, that’s NOT realistic NOR fair to her. there are alot of twists & turns when you’re in your 20’s, so fans are just going to have to get over it….or bail out.

    P.S. i don’t think she’s doing anything ‘wrong’ because it’s her life to live. (there’s probably “less” here than meets the eye, anyway.)

    it’s healthier to focus on the projects, that is good advice!

  • MCR

    I agree. Also, her projects are the only part of her life which are legitimately our business.

    I don’t feel I have any right to expect that actors “behave” according to my standards in their own private lives. Which is a good thing, because probably <1% of them do. Not remotely my business. Kristen's love life is not mine to judge, or even, really, to be concerned or disappointed about.

    For that matter, neither is her failure to keep her private life out of the hands of the gossip press. I'd certainly prefer they get nothing, but if the only way to manage total privacy is for Kristen to skulk around like a double agent, I can understand her giving that a miss.

  • MCR

    Has she really done anything that reasonable people should be “stunned” by? Much less anything that should be considered hitting rock bottom or becoming a train wreck? I mean, WTH?

  • MCR

    Somehow I could never warm up to her. Chelsea Handler, that is. She seems snide rather than satirical, and her humour IMO isn’t funny enough to make up for it.

  • Anna

    Agree.

  • nonA

    yes, and she & Lohan enjoyed ripping Kristen one time i recall. although she did defend Kristen once in ’12. never liked her humor in general either.

  • Anna

    Well, lets put it this way: going from one relationship to another without having even a week or two of break for a whole year, spending the night with your ex (*if* paps are not lying) just a day after she went out with her GF is not something people will accept with approval. People will judge her, fairly or not. That’s simply how society works. And if you are to ask them, her behavior is only getting worse. It’s very easy to lose all respect for person like that, especially with her past. People may not have the right to think any of those things but, lets be honest here, that won’t ever stop them. And once you get labeled …………………….

  • nonA

    i think sometimes the gossip press trolls twitter & the fansites before writing (fabricating) the story….so fans create the narrative oftentimes.

  • MCR

    I wouldn’t be at all surprised.

  • Anna

    No one wanted this so your theory is wrong.
    Dates, descriptions and the rest came from paps. The rest is just people reacting to it.

  • MCR

    We don’t know exactly what is going on. We haven’t known for virtually her entire career. We can say, “Sure we know, or at least have a pretty darn good idea,” but in fact, we don’t. That “if paps are lying” is a huge IF, because even when they’re not lying, they’re trying to spin things to make them a little more scandalous. All we really get is a glimpse of her with one person, then with another, without knowing exactly when one relationship wound down and another started, or if it started, let alone how or why. The rest is pure speculation.
    I do know how this works, and that some people will judge her and label her, as they do any female celebrity past puberty who doesn’t spend her nights in a locked convent. That doesn’t mean we have to participate.

  • Anna

    I never disagreed with any that. Never ever. I *know* we don’t know much, if anything, for a fact. That’s why I always try to keep all options open, even when I feel one is more likely than all others.
    But that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be aware how something can be and often is perceived by the public. Because then *that* becomes reality everyone must deal with. So why then keep doing certain things that will for sure provoke such negative reactions? Why the need to test your luck all the time? Shouldn’t that energy be used for something far more productive? Are these stupid things/acts/decisions really worth it? Why not be a bit smarter/wiser? See, IMO, all of that are things that fans should be allowed to talk about without fear of being accused of being disloyal or contributing to those who hate. Because neither Kristen nor we are living in a perfect world. What’s right and what’s our reality are too often two very different things.

  • Eme

    Man, am I in total agreement with you about her! Have never liked her & think she’s just a “mean girl “. Not funny at all.

  • Eme

    Thank you, Anna. My favorite look of all time!

  • Anna

    You are welcome.

    Best fitting of all time 😉

  • Eme

    Everything about the look was perfection! Especially the young woman! !

  • Anna

    Tara used to put so much more effort while styling Kristen. I miss those times, tbh.

  • Anna
  • Anna

    New pics.

    Kristen and her friend Lily out in LA..

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Before I let you go, I know you have a film coming up called Lizzie with director Craig William Macneill. Is there anything you can tell us about that project?

    Kim Dickens: Well, I play Emma Borden, who is Lizzie Borden’s older sister. It’s about Lizzie Borden, who murdered her father and stepmother, supposedly, in 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts, and it becomes sort of a horror film in a way, or psychological thriller. I thought the script was just incredible and I felt very fortunate to get to play the role alongside Chloë Sevigny, who plays Lizzie Borden, and Kristen Stewart, who plays the maid who was in the house at the time of the murders. It was really exciting material, and it was great to go work with Chloë and Kristen and Craig, who’s a phenomenal director.

  • Anna

    Daily Mail got those pics with Alicia and the story about her spending the night (it’s ironic that this time we can’t really blame them for the “she’s cheating again” narrative as paps were the ones who started it, not DM). Watch it being picked up by everyone else now. New scandal (can’t be compared to that one from 2012 in size and importance but this one will cement her very negative public perception). I guess there are some things she’ll never learn……………….

  • BrendaStar

    Chelsea often attacked Angelina in her “comedy” routines for adopting several children. I am all for loyalty, and I think many attributed this to her friendship with Jennifer Aniston, but it is/was a hateful,stupid routine. I think Chelsea is a horrible spokesperson for any cause. She used to joke about Twilight actors “coming out” too.

  • MCR

    What I don’t really share is this exasperation you seem to feel over Kristen not putting on the right appearance – the perception that she’s “testing her luck,” doing reckless things and all but asking for negative press. She’s just living her life as she pleases, not making a show of it by any means, but also not hiding and being secretive. And a lot of what she does would get exclaimed over in the gossip press anyway – like when she began dating women, which is apparently still an issue for some. Should she therefore have employed a man as a beard, to avoid “provoking” reactions? She could wear herself out avoiding bad press, and probably still not be successful.
    I can understand feeling “sick and tired” as you say, of the gossip itself, but why so annoyed with Kristen herself? You agree it’s nobody’s business, that things are exaggerated by the press, and that it’s unfair; but you still blame her for not tiptoeing around her life to avoid the unavoidable gossip. #&5$*@ that!

  • Anna

    Don’t put words in my mouth.
    Hiding, pretending, faking it are things I never mentioned nor talked about.
    Things aren’t b&w. When someone suggests that Kristen should try to change some stuff, that doesn’t mean everything she’s doing is wrong. It’s about *how* some things are done. Wear whatever you want but make sure your clothes are clean and that they fit you. Have a crazy hairstyle as long as you like but please wash your hair regularly. Count till 10 before you put your middle finger up for world to see. If you are just hooking up with someone and you know it won’t last longer than several weeks, try to skip hand holding and other PDA in public so that people wouldn’t label you as bed hopper (it’s not worth it). Formulate answers to questions you get asked all the time and memorize them in your head so that interviews would be easier for both, you and journalists. And so on and on and on and on and on. She’s intelligent girl, it’s time for her to pick her battles far more carefully. Not every hill is worth of dying on and she’s been doing exactly that as of recently — wasting that little of good will people had for her on stupid things.
    She could have met Alicia in private without giving them a chance to get those pics and then, depending on what this is all about, go with it in the public — but weeks, not hours, after she was seen with Stella. You know, just factoring how people may interpret certain things before deciding *how* to do them. That’s called being mature.

  • BrendaStar

    I checked out the story. DM asked a few times “Where’s Stella?” That was it. There is no scandal here. Kristen can visit her ex-girlfriend. Everything else is speculation. I doubt people or Hollywood will care too much about any of this. Kristen was in a popular franchise back in 2012. She was also in a high profile relationship. There were scandalous pictures and video. None of that applies anymore.

  • Alfred Birchall

    Well there will always people who jump to conclusions (Their problem ) What if Kristen spent the night with an old friend because all her other friends ( CJ is with Stella .Suzie is in France with Jack ) are not in LA at the moment .Maybe she didn’t feel like spending the night alone ? As was said yesterday on the pics where she is walking in LA alone ,its not often you see Kristen on her own ! Alicia has been messed up on her Tumblir recently .. Maybe it was just friends talking We will see if Stella is back at the weekend She has stayed in LA for the gun thing tonight She would have probably gone to London if she didn’t have that prior commitment People are so judgemental and unforgiving in their criticism. Sue B

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • Eme

    The pics look like they were taken outside someone’s house. How are the paps getting pics in a gated community if these were indeed taken in her neighborhood? Or were they? And isn’t the gun control event tonight? Passport, hmmm?

  • Anna

    That’s not her neighborhood.
    In one or two pics it looked like a driveway to Tara’s home but I’m most likely wrong.
    What worries me (and is giving me huge feeling of déjà vu) is the fact they are following her wherever she goes. It’s like paps are on her 24/7. We used to get daily pics but that was because she was constantly going to same places for days (coffee shop, a studio, gym, ect.) but now, she’s been all over LA and they are still getting pics of her.
    Have no idea what she was doing with her passport. That’s puzzling.

  • Anna

    @damon_baker
    I had the pleasure of photographing cool and talented #KristenStewart for @chanelofficial & @madamefigarofr in #Cannes – Kristen once asked me what I did for work but I never like people to judge me based on my work alone so I didn’t clarify, when she walked on my set I gave her a wink and told her ‘Now You Know!’

    Nice, MCR!

  • Eme

    Like I said – they’re *invested* in their lies and agenda.

  • OG Guest

    It probably was Tara’s home. You can hear Kristen in Lily’s IG story where they are playing with a little pig. Tara just got a little pig and I think you can hear her too.

    Maybe Kristen is leaving the country soon. Or it could be necessary for the JT Leroy movie. Passports are regularly used as a type of identification on work forms.

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Yeah. There was a reason that driveway looked familiar but I wasn’t sure (it’s not like I can memorize all of their houses, lol).

    I crossed traveling because of this charity event tonight so yes, that passport was probably for something else work related.

  • Anna
  • Anna

  • Anna

    That top doesn’t really go well with that skirt (and isn’t exactly appropriate for the occasion).
    And I would’ve never guessed she would wear a skirt with that floral pattern. LOL
    I meed to see the shoes.

    Glad she stopped bleaching her hair.

  • Anna
  • Eme

    Thank you for the pics, Anna! I want to see the whole outfit. I kinda like the black against that light floral – it’s unexpected. I also want to see the shoes. Liking her hair getting back to the natural color (I hope).

  • Eme

    Why isn’t the top appropriate for the occasion? She looks like she’s fitting right in with the crowd (at least from what I can see).

  • Anna

    You are welcome, Eme.

    I can’t say I like anything about that combo — it looks cheap. And lazy.

  • Anna

    It’s something she would wear during her off time with those stained boy jeans she tends to wear so often.
    She’s not just one of the guests there, she’s a co-host ffs.

  • Eme

    I need to see the whole outfit and have a better view of it. From what I can see I don’t know what’s cheap or lazy about it.

  • Anna

    It’s lazy because neither Tara nor Kristen didn’t put any effort in it.
    And again no bra (I think) which is just . . . a big no.
    It’s cheap, IMO, because that skirt looks like something one would buy on sale for few $$$. In that pic, it looks like a curtain.

    I’ll wait for more pics but this outfit is one of my least favorite she ever wore.

  • Anna

    See, that skirt really is like a curtain IMO.

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DBxHp9EUMAEtvC5.jpg

  • Anna

    Such a mess (that top goes well only with sweatpants).
    Especially, when you see her next to those ladies.
    You are a co-host at a charity event for a cause you supposedly care a lot about with quite a few high profile guests expected to show up and yet you look like you don’t give a s**t., like you couldn’t be bothered by any of it.
    I miss those times when she was, together with her team, always giving her best, no matter what, but those days are long gone it seems.

  • Eme

    I like her shoes. They go well with the outfit. I like the skirt – it looks like silk with a soft overlay of fabric – I don’t think it looks like a curtain at all. And I like the top with it. It’s not my favorite look of hers but I don’t think it looks bad. (And, not trying to be snarky, but Chelsea’s outfit is just – no. And the other lady’s outfit with the stars – um, no).

  • Eme

    Be still my heart!! ICY HBG!!!

  • Anna

    Neither of those looks is great but Chelsea’s and January’s dresses are better fitted for the type of event they are at.
    Plus, what Kristen is wearing isn’t doing anything (good) for her figure. A big fail, IMO, but everyone has different taste so …………………………………

  • Anna
  • Eme

    Um, I guess we’re going to have to disagree on this one, Anna. She looks put together, she’s clean, has makeup on and is there supporting gun control. And, honestly, from what I can see of other people (besides the two women standing with Kristen who, imo, aren’t exactly looking great in their outfits), Kristen doesn’t look out of place. Jmo.

  • Anna

    Well, see, we are so used to her looking rather unkempt that every time she’s just clean we say she looks well put together. That’s such a law standard, IMO. So yes, we are definitely disagreeing on this one.

  • Eme

    Well, I was kinda being a bit sarcastic about her being clean but I guess it didn’t translate, lol. It’s okay. We can disagree, nbd.
    Still, I think she looks lovely. And I do like the skirt. The look fits her style – I’m waiting to have Fashion Court identify the designers.

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • Eme

    Very important moment for all of them. Important that they were there to drive the point about gun control home.

  • Anna

    I like Ruth’s shoes (and I think they’ll get MCR’s approval, too, lol).

  • Eme

    Yup! Like them, too – that’s about as high a heel that I will wear!!

  • Anna

    HBG was born to wear the hell out of those suits. LOL

  • Eme

    Yeah, that’s right. We’re looking at the suits – LOL!!!!

  • Anna

    Shhhh. We have to keep this board work place friendly ;P

  • Eme

    ;P !!!

  • ME

    I disagree as well. This is not her best look but it’s better than CH’s and JJ’s outfits.

  • OG Guest

    Kristen is the best dressed of the three. Chelsea’s is literally falling down her chest and the dress itself is one big zzzz. January’s dress is a ridiculous cowgirl costume and it’s horribly wrinkled. Kristen’s top is probably cashmere and worth more than you or I earn in a week. It’s a little heavy looking for the skirt, which is fun and completely appropriate for a cocktail event.

  • ME

    Agree. Can’t stand Chelsea.

  • Anna

    Like I said, that whole outfit looks cheap to me (regardless of its real worth), especially the skirt (it looks like something those beginner fashion designers would put on a mannequin as their first “draft” of a spring skirt). Well, OK, shoes are fine.

  • Anna
  • Eme

    Ouch. LOL, Anna. Beginner fashion design and a “first draft”. You are cracking me up with the hate for the skirt. Poor skirt!!

  • Anna

    That skirt deserves it (WTH was Tara thinking?!). LOL

  • Eme

    Awww, I guess my taste is suspect because I quite like the skirt. I even like the top with the skirt because it gives it an edge. I could never wear it because I don’t have the shape for it but I would if I could. I’m defending the skirt!!!

  • Anna

    It’s OK. I was forced to defend *the* hat so I know how you feel ;P

  • Anna
  • Eme

    I knew you were going to bring up *the* hat. Which I will hate on whenever I see it because ……. it has no purpose in life. So, we’re even ;P.

  • Eme

    Whoever organized this is hitting all the symbolic high notes about the deadly cost of gun violence. Well done.

  • Anna

    Well, not really. That skirt won’t be coming back while *the* hat ……………… I always get the hardest tasks. LOL

  • Eme

    Well, you could put a hit on it so that it’ll never come back!! JS!!!

  • Anna

    Wait!
    Scratch that. You were right — it *is* easier for me because I won’t be forced to look at that curtain skirt anymore while you and the hat ………….
    Sorry, Eme. LOL

  • Anna

    True. I could. But a person needs something to hate for fun ;P

  • Eme

    LOL!!! And it is not a curtain skirt!!!! It’s quite lovely.

  • Eme

    The hat on the other hand is just butt ugly.

  • Anna

    It’s not ugly. It just has identity crisis so it acts like a helmet on Kristen’s head ;P

  • Eme

    Please. I can think of other things to hate for fun that are more pleasing to look at then that ugly, ugly hat.

  • Eme

    OMG!!!! Yeah, right. Go ahead and try to rationalize it’s butt ugly look – identity crisis, lol. I’ll give you pointers for your creativity, though!!!

  • Anna

    Nah. *The* hat is special because you can always count on it to provoke such a strong passion in people. LOL

  • Eme

    It’s *special* all right. Unfortunately, Kristen thinks so too. LOL.

  • Anna

    Which automatically makes that hat a winner. Sigh. LOL

  • Eme

    Thank you, Anna, for bringing all the goodies from the event tonight. Will bid adieu until the morrow.

  • MCR

    Sorry to be inflexible, but nope.

  • MCR

    I like the outfit too. The plain, form-fitting black top offsets the pink floral skirt, which I think makes for a nice look overall. I recall something similar worn to the Oscars a few years ago, except that the floral skirt was floor-length, and it looked great. Seems like a good choice for the event. (No comment on the shoes.)

  • Anna

    Not really. Look at the difference in color between Kristen’s face and her neck – a beginner’s mistake.
    (Also, Kristen needs to start taking care of her neck because it looks like it’s aging faster than her face. Same goes for her forehead.)

    Kristen Stewart was also present at the event — the goal of which was to raise funds to continue to prevent gun violence and reduce the number of gun deaths by half in 2025 — where she served as both a co-chair and presenter. Brady Center president Dan Gross told PEOPLE that although Stewart’s involvement is relatively new, he is impressed with what the actress has brought to the table thus far.

    “She came to us because she has something she wants to do with this issue,” Gross said. “She eagerly shared her idea and without hesitation and is showing up tonight. She is committed to actually doing something, not just lending her name.”

    While Stewart and Gross didn’t divulge many details about what the actress’s big idea involves, she did hint at its inspiration: classic American depictions of our fascination with guns.

    “I was infatuated with a few classic Americana images that were a little skewed and maybe not as beautiful or as comforting as they might seem on the surface,” Stewart explained. “One of them involved the shattering of the idea that it’s cool to play with toy guns and little kids grow up thinking that’s going to protect and empower them. We kind of take that idea and go, ‘Actually this is something else that could happen,’ and that needs to be considered by people who might not think about that kind of thing.”

  • Anna

    And you can see how much better Kristen’s skirt would look without that pink curtain on top of that floral material.

  • Anna
  • Anna

    (Difference in Kristen’s face vs. neck skin tone also obvious in that pic.)

  • BrendaStar

    Nice background information. I admire Kristen for reaching out to these organizations. She did the same in attending a Thirst fundraiser event a couple of years ago. I wonder if Ruth helps her with this.

    I think she looked just right for the event_ both pretty and serious or professional. This is a great pic!

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Which means almost all fansites will lose all of their galleries/archives. Sigh.

  • gillian kemp

    I hope this doesn’t bring Kristen negative attention. Other actors have been called hypocrites for making gun filled violent movies, like AU, then supporting gun control. Liam N. was being ragged on last week on the radio, for the movies he makes. He said Americans are obsessed with guns, yet he makes very violent movies. It is nice that Kristen seems more open and relaxed supporting causes important to her.

  • Anna

    Kristen isn’t advocating for ban of guns, she simply supports responsible ownership. Two different things.

  • BrendaStar

    That is certainly a valid concern because this is really a controversial issue. However, people who do something concrete and thoughtful as opposed to those who just preach or speak off the cuff might fare better. Also, other than AU, Kristen has not done any violent films. Liam really is identified with violent films and truly made a fortune on it IMO.

  • Eme

    This is the second time (that we know of) Kristen has reached out to organizations to support their causes through her art (the first one I know of is the Planned Parenthood video she did with the musical group) so she definitely is proactive in her support of causes she believes in. Good for her.

  • Anna

    I can’t remember how that campaign against college campus rape she did years ago happened so maybe she approached them too.

  • Eme

    Oh, don’t know about that one but no surprise since I’m a newbie Kristen fan. I’ll be interested to see what she does with the gun control film (or is it a short/video?).

  • Anna

    She said it will be a short.

  • Eme

    Thanks, Anna.

  • Anna

    You are welcome.

    I’m waiting for that THR guy to post his interview with Kristen so we could find out more about that short.

  • Anna

  • gillian kemp

    I hope it didn’t come across that I believe she wants to ban guns. I do however believe some in the media can turn a story in any direction they want. I am still upset that mess from Camp X Ray was never cleared up.

  • OG Guest

    Breitbart and the NRA have already called her out for being a hypocrite, posting pics from AU. I said anything that makes them mad is a good thing. It’s a fair enough point though and I’d be curious to know what her response would be to her thoughts on acting in violent movies.

  • Anna

    Well, excuse her for making a movie with agents who use guns.
    Idiots!

  • Anna

    Honestly, there’s no talking with people who use Breitbart (which started that BS narrative re CXR) and the like as their main source of information. One can slap them with facts and they would still continue with their agenda. You can’t fix stupid. #sorrynotsorry
    Staying quiet is not a solution. Especially not now. So if that kind of publications/sites are going to get mad at her I say she’s doing it right.

  • Anna

    P.S. I don’t think that’s a valid point. Not in the sense they (NRA) are presenting it. It’s a lazy argument, quite obvious substitution of theses they are using as distraction because they don’t want to talk about real issues in the heart of the problem.

  • OG Guest

    True, but I think Hollywood does need to take a look at themselves as well. They’re guilty of glorifying violence.

  • Anna

    Hollywood, certain parts of music industry, video games industry, toys for boys industry, ect. It’s far more complicated than just movies.
    And this is not Hollywood going against them (movie industry as a whole has quite lucrative business relationship with gun lobby), these are actors acting as any other USA citizen expressing their right on free speech and political/social activism. So NRA needs to STFU.

  • Anna

    Like I said, whole archives will be gone. That includes rare photoshoots/events/scans/fan pics, ect.

    https://twitter.com/TeamKristenSite/status/872936475255492608

  • Eme

    Wow. No words. I guess it means, for me, never seeing some pics before 2012.

  • Eme

    LOL!!! Yeah, critical thinking is in short supply these days.

  • OG Guest

    I don’t dispute any of that. But Hollywood is definitely part of the issue Kristen was talking about, where kids think guns are cool.

  • OG Guest

    New pics of Kristen, Stella, and CJ.

  • Anna

    I get your point.
    But, Kristen is an actress who made only 1 freakin’ movie that is violent in her 17 years long career. One! Just like she’s not fighting against all guns, action movies won’t ever fully disappear either. So actors being in one of them every several years shouldn’t be an issue. But she didn’t make a name by acting in such films. We are not talking about, idk, S. Stalone here. My point is: in this case, Kristen is not Hollywood, Kristen is representing only herself.

  • Anna

    All of them + middle finger, vulgar edition. SMH

  • Anna

    Kristen, you are 27 years old!!! And, I’m sorry, but this time you can’t be mad at paps because you were on your own giving them enough material for their BS. So, grow the f**ck up already.

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Yeah. Some things can be found by simply googling them. But nothing can replace fansites and their archives. Fans moving on, sites closing and now the most important content on those that are still open will be gone . . . too much, if you are asking me. Sigh.

  • Eme

    Not that I care to see the vulgar edition, but I only found the PG version, lol! The ones I saw – Kristen & Stella look cute.

  • Anna

    Well, the Kristen is licking her middle finger salute one is everywhere.

  • Anna

    Also, one more thing: not only that they are on her 24/7 since she came back home from NOLA and that they are managing to find her all over LA, but they are following her with multiple crews (this new set and the previous one with Lily were done by at least 2 crews of paps). This is not good (and, for the record, it wouldn’t be good even in case of all pics being great and mess free).

  • Eme

    Forgive my naivete, but I always thought there were multiple pap crews on her. What are you implying – that they know something about Kristen & want to get the money shot? I hate them & they act like parasites so what’s different now?

  • Eme

    Found the pic. Well, I have no idea what she is reacting to but after I saw a video of the parasites provoking her with vile comments a few years back – meh.

  • Anna

    No, it’s usually (like, in 95% of cases) just one crew (a pair of paps) sitting in one car and waiting (or being on foot but that’s reserved for NYC).
    This what we are seeing now is not their normal. I have no idea what’s going on.

  • Eme

    Hmmm. Glad she’ll be filming soon.

  • Anna

    Nah, these today were keeping their distance.
    And it’s pretty clear what she’s doing — well, what she *thinks* she’s doing — which is getting back at them. Only, she’s working against herself with that kind of behavior while they are getting nicely paid.

  • Anna

  • Eme

    How do you know that they weren’t saying things to her? Is there a video on Twitter that shows that? I’m not excusing her, just giving her the benefit because I’m biased against them.
    And, yeah, agree she’s working against herself providing the money shots.

  • Anna

    I haven’t seen any videos yet but it’s pretty obvious those pics were taken from a car so I doubt they were yelling at her.
    And even if they were — she needs to deal with it in a far more appropriate way. Because they are here to say, unfortunately.

  • Eme

    Wow. I am so inexperienced with all this. It isn’t obvious to me that the shots were done from a car (what? Like a moving car?).
    And, agree that she needs to deal with the parasites appropriately – but sometimes ……..

  • Anna

    I get her. As a human, I really do get her. I mean, I can’t stand those idiots and I wasn’t hunted by them for more than a decade now (she became kinda interesting to them even before Twilight). But, just like with all other negative things in life one can’t change, she needs to suck it up and deal with it. Just stop paying attention to them.

  • Eme

    And most of the time, from what I’ve seen, she does ignore them. The reactions are times when they are provoking her in some way. For instance when she reacted to them during the night filming scene for PS. Even Olivier alluded to it in one of his interviews – that it distracted her during filming scenes out in the streets of Paris. And, sometimes, I think it’s just being sick of them being present and just having enough of it in that particular moment.

  • Anna

    I never said anything against those PS set pics. I mean, against her reaction that one time. I do pay attention to circumstances.
    But in situations where she’s just walking down the street and they aren’t blocking her way, she needs to keep going without showing them how their presence is affecting her (they are like sharks — once they smell the blood…………..).

  • Eme

    She has been doing better until just recently, I think. It seemed to me after that article came out last year about a year of her middle finger salutes, she seemed to cool it a bit. Oh well. Moving on, sigh.

  • Anna

    IDK, I didn’t get that impression.
    Yeah, moving on. Till the next time 🙁

  • Eme

    If you scroll down you will find my post in which I said *to you* I was expecting to see them together again. And you’ll also find out that I think that is only going to add confusion and “ewww” factor to this messy narrative tabs are pushing. People outside this small fandom will believe what they are told and you know that it involves insinuations of another cheating. Hell, majority of fans think she’s a mess right now.
    So . . . get off my back, will ya. Just because I’m fan it doesn’t mean I’m blind.

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • OG Guest

    No, you only follow the miserable fans like yourself. Most sane people don’t think anything is wrong with her, but you’ve basically been implying all kinds of terrible things about her, none of which have come to fruition.

  • Anna

    Honey, I follow very reasonable open minded and quite funny positive people (with few exceptions), thank you very much.
    When even LGBTQ+ community within this fandom is calling her messy you know she is doing it wrong.
    Finding excuses will only serve you for so long. I suggest you to leave this bubble from time to time and see what people are actually saying. It ain’t pretty out there.
    You might look nice with pink glasses on but those were never my thing.

  • OG Guest

    I don’t have pink glasses, sweetie. I see everything pretty clearly. Whereas with you, it’s a wonder you can see out of glasses so black. Because that’s literally all you see. It is beyond insanity that you even pretend to be a fan of someone who you hate everything about. There’s nothing you like about her. It’s sad that you can’t recognize you have a fantasy version of her in your head who she will never be. Stay mad 24/7 though.

  • Anna

    LOL!!!
    OMG, you are so delusional when it comes to this. Me. How I feel about Kristen. But hey, whatever makes you happy.
    Fantasy is where you are at, unpleasant truths are my thing. You are satisfied with whatever you can get, I always wish for the very best. When I care about something or someone, that is. And Kristen fits that description.

    P.S. Thank you for paying *so* much attention to my thoughts and opinions (and here I thought, those were irrelevant to you because you know better). Sadly, I can’t say the other way around applies.

    (Colin Jost is one of show’s writers.)

    Jost: It was surreal, for sure. It’s kind of a sad moment, I don’t know—a sad moment in the sense of, why is this the thing that bothers him, versus so many other issues and problems? I mean, the Kristin Stewart monologue that she did on the show this year, which was fully based on what happened in her real life, when she and Robert Pattinson broke up, and Trump tweeted at her like 20 times to run her down. It was just, who is this guy? On some level, it is his genius. Of course, you have to figure out how to handle it on the show. Do you address it? Do you respond directly to him? I think Lorne smartly didn’t want to have a sketch that was just talking at Trump, because then you’re suddenly engaging in a way that’s not helping you keep some sort of distance. It’s a weird rabbit hole to go down.

    Come Swim review.

    “So everything is worthwhile, starting with the first piece, Kristen Stewart’s “Come Swim” (one of several U.S. entries), which is a largely impressionistic, sometimes confusing exploration into a young man’s struggle to maintain his sanity in the face of despair. Hollywood star Stewart (of Twilight series fame) makes her directorial debut and employs jump-cutting and odd angles to mirror the man’s fragmented existence in a way that echoes Lodge Kerrigan’s Clean, Shaven (1993) and the oeuvre of Darren Aronofsky. “Come Swim” isn’t necessarily original but it isn’t poorly made either, and its inclusion was probably not based solely on the natural curiosity regarding Stewart’s chops behind the camera.”

    You are welcome.

    IDK. When you google that place (it’s more of a village with less than 900 residents), Coco and that watch design are everywhere.
    I think this will be Gabrielle perfume campaign related trip because, if we are going by their previous ads, they don’t go through all this trouble for their collections of watches (they just take ordinary pics of models wearing them and that’s pretty much it).

    Update:

    It’s HBG! Sorry, it’s just that I’m always glad to see him.

    Video is out.
    Well, I’ll give one thing to those French airport paps: they didn’t yell.
    And that was one unusually slow walk for Kristen. I think she thanked that airport security guy (you can see him in pics) and she said something to one of paps in the end.

    I was thinking about that, too (Stella working because season of fashion weeks is starting) but HBG is with them and that usually means Kristen is there to work (well, it used to be mean that).

    She has both HBG and BG1 with her so my guess is she’s doing something for work. There’s also another woman in the group that is obviously with them (probably a handler of some kind for the project). My guess is it’s another photo shoot.

  • Eme

    Yeah, that was nice that she thanked the security guy and I thought I heard something like “nice” to the pap who I think replied off camera “yeah, it was nice” or something to that effect. Or maybe I’m just imagining the comment in my head. The paps were decent – Europeans tend to be decent overall. Sadly, can’t say the same for us Americans.
    And, it was kinda slow going there for awhile – HBG kept moving ahead and having to turn and sorta wait for them to catch up, lol.

    Forbes just announced their Top 100 Highest-Paid Celebrities in the World for 2017 list.
    It’s quite ~interesting and even more telling.
    The only actress on the list is Sofia Vergara ($41M). But then you have something like 6 or 7 actors (didn’t really count) and among them Adam Sandler, for example, who earned $50M+ in the last year (June 2016 – June 2017). Enough said.

    Anyway, here’s the list: https://www.forbes.com/sites/zackomalleygreenburg/2017/06/12/full-list-the-worlds-highest-paid-celebrities-2017/#146b579949ec

    Regarding Adam Sandler, he’s not just earning his money by acting, he’s also a producer, a writer and a composer, so in many of his movies, he gets more than one paycheck, maybe two or three or even more.. The guy sure knows how to squeeze a lemon!

    — and if we take whole entertainment industry as a whole, I think it’s great that both 2. and 3. place is occupied by women; Beyoncè and J.K Rowling.

  • Anna

    True that.
    But he’s a good example that you don’t have to be in good films to earn a fortune. The guy is simply a good businessman.

  • Toooten

    I fully agree.

  • Eme

    It’s not so much confusion as it is fully understanding the writer’s premise and if that premise was supported by the examples of Raw and Personal Shopper. Blame my English teachers for drilling into me the finer details of thesis writing. It’ll take at least another read for me (or more) to be satisfied that I understand the whole article. That’s all. Nbd.

  • Eme

    It is an interesting list. Obviously, business acumen is the name of the game. Some of these people have not been as visible in the past year and are still earning millions, e.g., Tiger Woods comes to mind immediately. And, we won’t even go into whether *talent* in one’s field has anything to do with earning power. (See convo below).

    He’s ahead of the group but visible in the video. But it’s understandable that he’s not the first one our eyes go to, lol!!!

    The first thing? Poor HBG! Relegated to second place after NS (new shoes)!

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Well, the very first two pics that came out didn’t have any part of HBG in them. So . . . the shoes. LOL

  • Eme

    You don’t see him? He’s the older one and sometimes is in full view of the camera for a few seconds. Okay, now you’ve got me wondering about my own eyesight. I’m going back to review the video again, lol!

  • Eme

    Figures it would be a French label!!! Well, when in Rome (or Paris, in this case) . . . .

  • Anna

    The guy in white shirt? That’s not *the* BG#2.

  • Anna

    Exactly. LOL
    Although, when she was in Cannes she didn’t exactly follow that rule but oh well.

  • Eme

    Well, he was with her in the past year. So, I’ve put him as BG#2. BG#1 I haven’t seen in awhile (he’s the hefty one and younger than HBG and BG#2). LOL. I. am. confused. Is BG#2 the one we saw at Cannes – the tattooed guy? If so, then no, he’s not with them now. So maybe we should call the mustached guy BG#3. LOL!!!!

  • Anna

    IDK. I don’t remember seeing this guy.
    We have HBG, then there’s that other guy with undercut (and few tattoos) who is with her when HBG isn’t, thus the name BG#2 (see: pics from the first day of Underwater filming) and back in 2015 there was one more guy working with BG#2 or HBG, maybe couple of years younger than them, who didn’t do his job well (paps were getting way too close to Kristen literally touching her) so he was replaced.

  • Eme

    Her RC look was Chanel at least. No comment on the *other* look.

  • Eme

    Oh, is that what happened to him. I swear I have seen the mustached guy as her BG recently. Not at the Underwater filming but, I thought, at one of the European festivals. Somebody, anybody, tell me I’m not imagining all this!! LOL!!

  • BrendaStar

    Congrats Eme to you and your Golden State Warriors. An NBA championship is a huge deal.

  • Anna

    Maybe that was one of local guys.

  • Eme

    Thank you, Brenda!! I am really proud of them for pulling through this year; it was such a heartbreaker last year!!

  • Anna

    Was thinking ………………..

    Chanel is finally officially posting about this Ombre campaign (on their instagram, FB, ect.) and magazines are doing the same. Could it be that there is some kind of event planned for official launch of this makeup collection and that’s why Kristen is in Paris?

  • Eme

    Ah, that could be it since I haven’t seen him but once and it wasn’t in the US (I do believe it was in France). Well, we’ll leave it at that for now. He’s a local guy, lol!
    Thanks for playing along with me, Anna, if all of this ends up being just my imagination!

  • Anna
  • Anna

    No problem.
    I rather like this “guess the BG” game. LOL

  • BrendaStar

    I understand. I think I’m the same way. I take my team very seriously. It is great that you can celebrate now!

  • Eme

    LOL!!!

  • Eme

    😉 Yeah, my hubs thinks I get a little too involved and emotional (I do scream a lot) so now I go to another room and just listen to the play by play. Yesterday, I actually left the house to exercise class, came back and only looked at the TV for the last couple minutes – you know, when I knew they would win. LOL!!!

  • Eme

    Sounds reasonable to me. They had that small launch party for Lucia’s makeup in LA last year so you’re probably on to something here.

  • Anna

    You are me, I am you.
    I literally have to take a walk sometimes while watching important games because if I don’t ………………………….. LOL

  • Eme

    Sigh. Vogue trying to be witty and relevant again. Seriously. “The art of twinning”?

  • Anna

    That one was in London, but yeah.

  • Eme

    IKR?!!!

  • Anna

    Well, their looks do match (in style) but twinning sounds like high school.

  • Eme

    LOL!! I just cannot keep up with the who, what, where of Kristen’s beauty and fashion projects. Thanks for the correction, Anna.

  • Anna

    (You saw what your team just decided re that traditional visit to White House? That will make you even happier.)

  • Anna

    I’m here to ~help. LOL

  • Anna

    That plus how she looked after RC was over (green bomber jacket and the rest). Kwim?

  • Eme

    They dress like the age group they’re in so no surprise there (I mean, I’d wear some of what both of them are wearing but I’d probably come off as trying too hard because I might be a little bit too old to pull off the vibe) so this trying to make it something else (yeah, *twinning*) is just . . . nah.

  • Eme

    😉

  • Eme

    LOL! I forget how she looked – I think I was still trying to come to terms with the *other* look.

  • Eme

    No, I haven’t seen it yet. But if what you’re saying is what I think you’re saying – I’m a very proud fan.

  • Anna

    I am saying what you think I’m saying 🙂

  • Anna

    Agree.

  • BrendaStar

    I can identify with that too. I have been told something bad always
    happens when I start screaming “No, no”. So, I stopped doing it. I leave sometimes too because I’m so afraid they will lose that I cannot bear to watch.

  • BrendaStar

    Me too!

  • Eme

    Just saw an update: “Today is all about celebrating our championship. We have not received an invitation to the White House, but will make those decisions when and if necessary.” Warriors response to a Business Insider request for comment.

  • Anna

    Saw Independent reporting that team made unanimous decision not to go but I didn’t read the whole article.

  • Eme

    Yeah, it’s a fluid situation. I’d like them to just enjoy the win and leave all that crap behind. The honor is in the win – not an invitation. Js.

  • Anna

    You are forgiven ;P

  • Anna

    Agree. (Well, with this POTUS it is that way.)

    Here’s that report:

    A good read. (And while reading it, I couldn’t get Underwater out of my head. Sigh.)

    https://twitter.com/ScottMendelson/status/874672728921518080

  • Anna

    (Also, all these articles make me wish for Kristen to consider doing high quality TV show/limited series. Sometimes I think she’s already kinda late to jump on that train but still, the right project could do wonders for her. And if it happens to be something that will put her outside of her narrow comfort zone than even better. Movies like CoSM, CW and PS are great but, lets be honest, very few people see them. Anyway …………………………)

  • Anna

    Scott’s piece is about blockbusters and Rotten Tomatoes, this one is about indies and Cinema Score (so we have the whole spectrum covered) and is an equally good read.

    https://twitter.com/IndieWire/status/874846361291829249

  • Eme

    BG#3 spotted in the bar pics (purple shirt/jacket) so she’s got both HBG and him with her and Stella. What is our girl up to in Paris? And lol, wonder how HBG liked going to a bar full of young 20 somethings – he’s not old, but still not his group. Oh well. Life of a HBG! Bbl.

  • Anna

    Huh? I only see HBG. There’s a guy talking to Kristen and Stella (together with 2 more people) but he’s just a friend, I think. There are no other BGs in that video either (but I saw it only once).

    Have no idea why she is there. Maybe there will be some kind of even this evening. Or she’s having a photshoot. Paps are on her so there will be pics.

    LOL. I was thinking the same. But that place is more of a bar than a club and bars don’t have age limit (well, you have to be 18+ but aside from that………..) so I think HBG was just fine. And Kristen wasn’t drunk or anything, she wasn’t acting stupid or something (like some celebs do) so I think he’s grateful for that (I bet he hears all kinds of stories from colleagues, iykwim). In that sense, she’s making his job much easier.

    Stay safe! Bye!

  • Anna

    New video (with pics to follow).

    Kristen and Stella at one of Paris’ smaller airports boarding a domestic flight (so, they are off to some place in France).

  • Anna

    Per paps, she’s off to that town in central France for campaign shooting (the one Chanel denied). Who knows. Either way, she’s working on something.

  • Anna

    Ken (hairstylist) and Emma (makeup artist) are with her so yeah, definitely a shoot.
    (Although, if this really is for perfume ad shoot, one would think that’s Chanel beauty team’s job. I mean, all those campaigns she did in Paris, it never were her people working on her looks. IDK, I’m not an expert.)

  • MCR

    I see and approve!

  • MCR

    Could mean it’s not a Chanel thing at all. Other work, in France, is fairly auspicious.

  • Anna

    Definitely possible.

  • Anna

    Pics are out.

  • Eme

    OMG! This game is something else. Ok, there are pics when they are first going into the bar and BG#3 is facing the camera (mustache and all!) and then that’s the back of his head as he’s standing next to the vehicle as Kristen is coming out of the bar (with HBG in front of her). I saw the pics on @adoringKS site.
    It isn’t BG#2 because I went back and saw the Underwater filming pics and now remember what he looks like. Please tell me you’re seeing what I am seeing. I’ll go look at the video which I haven’t seen.

  • Anna

    Short interview from that charity event.

    https://twitter.com/Korita05/status/875036340009684992

  • Eme

    And, he’s in both videos. He’s standing by the vehicle waiting for HBG and the girls after they leave the restaurant.
    And, he’s part of the group at the airport today – wearing a white shirt and gray jacket (and he has a bald spot back of his head).

  • Anna

    OK, post that darn pic (just a link to it or give me its number from the callery). LOL
    Because I don’t see any other BGs except for HBG and one local guy who is there to help. Well, at least I *think* that is what I’m seeing. LOL

  • Anna

    That guy! I think he’s one of locals.

  • Eme

    So, he’s just a local helping out – HBG? Thank goodness you finally saw him. At this point, I just wanted you to see him, never mind if he’s a BG! LOL!! Well, that was fun!!!

  • Anna

    I saw him right away but I thought he’s there as just a help (I don’t think anyone in Kristen’s team speak French) so I didn’t really count him as a regular BG. LOL

  • Anna
  • Eme

    Ok. So, this is a fun game. We’ve got HBG (yay!), then BG#2 (Underwater filming) then there’s the one recently at Cannes with the tattooed hand and mohawk hair (he’s younger than BG#2 and HBG). So, three of them, right? Although I haven’t seen mohawk lately. (We’re not counting mustache guy as a BG because he’s just a local, lol!!).

  • Anna

    Well, the only BGs that count are HBG and BG#2. Others come and go.
    She used to have her permanent French BG (google pics from PFW 2014 Z. Murad’s show, arrival) and then there’s that guy who was her BG/driver/guide/translator during CoSM and PS filming (hell, you could call him her friend judging by the way she hugged him at the airport than one time).

  • Anna

    Aaaaand they arrived. Hello there, Ken! Beautiful place.

  • Eme

    She gives great hugs! Okay, just HBG and BG#2. Still, it was fun trying to determine who’s who in the BG world of Kristen Stewart!

  • Anna

    I’m all for these fun games. I mean, we don’t have *the* sweater to mock anymore so …………………………… LOL

  • Eme

    Awww, miss *the* sweater (actually, the person wearing it)! But I definitely don’t miss *it*!

  • Eme

    She’s wearing the shoes we like again! She’s changing her look a bit . . . but I don’t like that jacket. It looks too . . . preppy for me. No edge.

  • Eme

    She’s wearing the shoes we like! The jacket looks . . . boring to me. No edge. But I do like that she’s changing her look a bit these days!

  • Anna

    Don’t know, exactly. I’m not 100% sure that’s the same place we talked about yesterday (the one Chanel denied). If it is, it’s in central France, middle of French countryside.

  • Anna

    Jacket is OK. It fits her, at least. And is comfy enough for travel.

  • Eme

    LOL! Disqus is playing tricks on me again. I repeated my comment because it didn’t post the one further up – and then it showed up. Ignore either one. Or both. Sigh. Disqus.

  • Anna

    Just delete one and done.

  • Anna
  • Eme

    We’ve been meaning to get to France soon – my brother-in-law lives in France – somewhere in the countryside in a small village (I know, I know, France is full of villages – I just can’t remember the name right now – have to look it up). This picture reminds me that we need to get there sooner than later. It is beautiful.

  • Eme

    Those are the only redeeming qualities it has for me. I guess I’m so used to her in leather or bomber jackets that this was a bit of a surprise.

  • Anna

    French villages (and Spanish and Italian ones, from what I saw) are like museums under open sky. Just beautiful, especially the tiny ones.

  • Eme

    Well, it was from one of Picasso’s paintings so . . . not so random or stretch that Kristen’s tattoo would be mentioned . . . I guess. LOL, indeed!!

  • Anna

    Oh, she used to wear jackets like that one all the time. So this is like a blast from the past. LOL

  • Anna

    Yeah, but to think her tattoo is *that* famous that even director of Picasso’s museum is going to mention it? That’s . . . bizarre. LOL

  • Eme

    Done. 😉

  • Eme

    Really? I do remember a behind the scenes pic of her during first Twilight film and she was wearing a cute cardigan & looked so young and *preppy* – this jacket would fit right in with that look. Blast from the past indeed.

  • Anna

    (Psssttt. Apparently, they aren’t in Aubazine, which was mentioned yesterday, but at a place in Dordogne department, which is even better as in, even more gorgeous part of France.)

  • Alfred Birchall

    Why does Kristen need her hairstylist ? She can wash and go with hair that short !

  • CJ
  • CJ

    idk if that’s a coincidence, but this site from Dordogne posted on Tuesday about the Chanel shoot at Aubazine tomorrow http://www.chambres-d-hotes.le-relais-de-chantecor.com/index.php/24-evenement/1151-chanel-s-installe-dans-l-abbaye-d-aubazine-pour-sa-prochaine-publicite

  • Anna

    Hmmm. And thus we made a full circle.

  • Anna

    Why still no wrap date, PW?

  • Anna

    Scratch that!!!
    SMH @ myself. There is a wrap date: Aug 17th.

    Interesting place of filming, BTW.
    MCR, she’s gonna be in your country for at least two months.

  • nonA

    didn’t expect that!

    she’s had an ‘eventful’ couple of weeks – lots of public events (& apparently a non-event with the ex, but who knows)

  • Anna

    OT

    I was wondering when will they, the industry, finally start officially tracking this data and rank all the stars.

    https://twitter.com/THR/status/875151639480602624

  • Eme

    Wow. Can’t even imagine.

  • Eme

    Hmmm. “An American actress should be present . . .” (Google translated).

  • MCR

    Yes, but off in Winnipeg. Not our #1 scenic tourist destination, poor girl; but at least the movie will keep her occupied.

  • Anna

    Well, she can’t score every time (with locations) in the way she did now with France.

  • CJ

    This is the hotel Ken (and probably Kristen and the others) is staying. About 25min from Aubazine. http://www.castelnovel.com/en/home

  • Anna

    Great place. I hope they’ll have a good time there. Maybe even stay few more days after she’s done with Chanel thing, just to have a short vacation with Stella? That would be nice, too.

  • CJ

    It would be very nice.

  • CJ
  • Anna

    Chanel denied the whole thing precisely because they wanted to avoid possible media (and paparazzi) circus at the spot. Sigh.

  • Anna
  • CJ

    yeah, but Kristen, Stella and team being papped at the Orly airport kinda confirmed the rumors. And this is a small town, so a celebrity going there is huge news, they couldn’t keep it to themselves.

  • Anna
  • Anna

    No, I get it.
    I just hope things will stay that way: only locals being there, snooping around. Bigger crowd would be bad.

  • Anna

    Oh!
    Site has a new layout. Very . . . summerly look.

  • Anna

    (But those comments are still missing. Gone forever more likely.)

  • CJ

    I agree.

  • Eme

    Just breathtakingly beautiful.

  • ME

    For a second I thought she dyed her hair dark again and got excited.

  • Eme

    Me too!!! But then the write-up mentioned a hat so I took a closer look. Sigh.

  • Eme

    Wow. Just wow.

  • Anna

    No more dyeing! Her natural hair color will come through (it already is for the most part). This is her opportunity to grow out/have a healthy hair.

  • Eme

    That too. I actually would like to see her hair’s natural color.

  • Anna

    Back of her head is almost only her natural hair color now. And somehow it looks a bit darker than it used to be.

  • Eme

    It looks like denying it did the opposite. Created more curiosity. I’m a bit surprised about the amount of attention this is getting. Or maybe it’s just the bubble I’m living in as her fan.

  • Eme

    Maybe because the hair is so short and the color will lighten as it grows out? I have no idea since I know close to nothing about hair!

  • Eme

    I thought I logged into a different site when I first saw the layout. Agree it looks summery.

  • Eme

    🙁

  • Anna

    Well, we didn’t have stalker-ish TV reports about other campaigns she did. But, then again, all of them were done in Paris while this one is in the middle of French nowhere. So, it is a bit odd, this attention and all. Good thing is that it seems to be mostly locally focused.

  • Anna

    That’s quite possible.

  • Eme

    Yup.

  • Anna
  • Eme

    I do hope she & Kristen will have some down time to enjoy this beautiful place after the shoot. And for Kristen to mingle with the locals and practice her French so she can learn to speak the language “for reals” (as my toddler daughter used to say back in the day)!

  • CJ

    Chanel trying to protect Kristen from papz https://twitter.com/JuneHowardL/status/875343904471744512

  • Anna

    Me, too!
    I mean, they do spend as much time as they possible can together (it seems that way) but this is their opportunity to spend few days away from everyone and everything, just the two of them, and to experience something (French countryside) for the first time together. That kind of stuff builds relationship (when it’s good). So yeah, I hope they’ll have the time for all of that.

  • CJ
  • Eme

    Absolutely agree.

  • Anna

    That person is acting like entitled brat. Scandal? What scandal?! SMH

  • Eme

    Yeah, I got that he was saying scandal. So he’s upset because they’re putting up barriers to avoid intrusive pics from curious fans?

  • Anna

    Yes. Because they are protecting Kristen (and their campaign because they obviously wouldn’t want pics of it/her to leak). That guy is a fully grownup brat!

  • CJ

    Sorry, now I see you’ve posted it.

  • Anna

    No problem.

  • CJ

    He is!

  • Anna

    (I’m sorry if I’m being too harsh but I really don’t like when someone is given a clear sign they aren’t welcomed, for very obvious reasons, and they still insist on being there. It’s just my pet peeve, I guess.)

  • Eme

    What did he say exactly? So, he was told to leave?

  • Anna

    IDK.
    There’s nothing about that (him being told no and asked to leave) on his timeline.
    But the fact he said it is a “scandal” he isn’t allowed to see Kristen should tell you everything. And he’s being all annoying, repeatedly tweeting to Chanel:

    https://twitter.com/JuneHowardL/status/875318322774110208

    P.S. He’s not a fan so he’s giving all of us a bad name acting that way. SMH

  • Anna

    (But you didn’t like that look on her so I’m guessing this isn’t your favorite layout.)

  • Anna

    I’m keeping track because of Underwater. Good timing is the key. So . . . April? Or March?

    Kristen and Stella landing at the local airport in Brive, France yesterday.

  • Anna

    Their faces when they first left the building . . . LOL!

  • Anna

    And poor HBG with those big suitcases. LOL

  • Eme

    Caught Kristen in mid yawn and Stella in mid sneeze!

  • Eme

    So, answer me this . . . how is he suppose to protect her if he’s responsible for those big ass staircases?! A little help from the others would have been nice, js. (And I’m including Kristen & Stella in the *others*).

  • Anna

    No. I think they looked just like real — tourists. LOL
    You know, “OMG, look at that thing! No, you look at this thing!” kind of behavior. And then Kristen laughing at something. It looks like they had fun.

  • Eme

    Yeah, I got those pics. But the doorway pics were what I was referring to.

  • Anna

    Nah. Those were special circumstances: not so many people, mostly their team members and vans were right there waiting for them. He had it under control. Plus, everyone else was busy with their luggage.
    As for Kristen (and Stella), how can you expect her to run from possible danger if she was handling that huge suitcase (I think the silver one is hers, if my memory serves me well)? LOL

  • Eme

    Ok, point taken.

  • Anna

    IDK. I choose to believe that was a Wow! instead of a Yawn!, iykwim. LOL

  • Toooten

    Oh Eme, I’ve got gray temples as well, but with dark blonde hair, it’s not very visible – yet! LOL!

  • Eme

    Body language, lol. Always open to interpretation. So, okay, let’s go with yours. Ikwym.

  • Anna

    Maybe she was yawning and then laughing at herself because of it? LOL

  • Eme

    Well, I’m obviously older than you!!! But much more vain as my gray isn’t visible very often thanks to a certain hairdresser in my city! 😉

  • Eme

    Ah, always the diplomat going with the middle road! LOL!! 😉

    Well, for stubborn people like me (ugh!) that is a necessary skill to have. LOL

    It’s a skill everyone ought to have!

    OT: Miss my miniKristens. Didn’t see any of them during recent events, particularly Cannes. Js. 😉

  • Anna

    Person who is making them isn’t as active as she used to be.
    You know, fandom slowly disintegrating and all that.

  • Eme

    April look less crowded. March has A Wrinkle in Time and Tome Raider that might be films that will divide audience interest, imo. (Although I don’t see anyone but AJ as the Tome Raider, js.).

    ‘The Runaways’
    2010

    Making a departure from her famous role in the Twilight franchise, Kristen Stewart portrays rocker Joan Jett of famous 1970s-era band The Runaways. The Floria Sigismondi-directed film was based on Neon Angel: A Memoir of a Runaway, a biography penned by the band’s former lead vocalist, Cherie Currie (portrayed by Dakota Fanning). The rocker film details the early inception of the band to the stress that ultimately led to Currie’s departure. Currie praised Fanning’s portrayal of her, but noted that the film didn’t include everything in her book. Jett believed the film captured the time well, but said she saw it as more of a narrative rather than a biopic. The film grossed close to $4 million domestically (adjusted for inflation).

  • Eme

    Ah, pity. I think she’s really talented.

  • Anna

    Yeah, April is my first choice too. But it might end up in Aug (dump month) if it’s bad.

  • Anna

    She’s still a fan just . . . not as avid. Or maybe she has things in her real life happening.

  • Eme

    We’ll see soon enough! This year is going by really fast!

  • Eme

    Well, hope all is well & that we see the minis again soon! (I’m such a selfish fan sometimes, always wanting more, lol!).

  • Anna

    Yeah, it kinda is. We thought we won’t have much to talk about but so far we had something, good or bad, happening every month.
    I wonder if she will go from JT to directing that gun control short. Second half of the year — well, fall — looks empty-ish right now.

  • Eme

    She’s a master at surprising us, so who knows! My preference is to be totally and happily surprised with good film project news.

  • Anna

    I hope something good will pop up. And the sooner the better.

  • Eme

    Yup!

    I think you’re right. Kristen was in mid yawn and Stella was sneezing. Then Stella saw the roof garden and show it to Kristen. She probably said something funny because Kristen couldn’t stop laughing.

  • Anna

    “looking forward to next time”
    Are they already done?

  • Anna

    There will be new pics.

    Kristen and Stella enjoying their time off in that hotel (or near that abbey), acting like a couple and all of that.
    Paps couldn’t even give them that much of privacy (pics look to be taken from a long distance).

  • Anna

    New pics, set#2.

    Kristen and Stella at that local airport leaving. I think.

  • ME

    Where can I see the pics? I have been out of the loop for so long.

  • Anna

    I haven’t checked Daily Mail, but I think they have those airport(?) pics. If not, @sogaydude has 2 of them. She also has one from that set #1 I mentioned bellow (the rest of them you can find on @krisiantothend’s timeline).

    If you are talking about all the pap pics we got recently, @adoringKS has them all (but not yet these 2 new sets).

  • Anna

    New pics, set #3.

    Kristen on set shooting that campaign. Yes, they caught her so if Chanel was planing to keep her look for it hidden, it didn’t work.

  • Anna

    P.S. Couple of LQ pics from set #3 you can find on @A_nchena’s account.

    (Set #1 and set #3 are yet to come out while set #2 is already available in HQ but not all pics.)

  • MCR

    I just hate that stuff!

  • Anna

    Terribly invasive.

    I mean, when she’s walking down the street or is at some other public space – I get it. I don’t support it but in those cases paps have the same right to be there and take pics of her. It sucks but it is what it is.
    But pics like those . . . hell to the NO! I still cringe so hard remembering that set taken after Still Alice director’s funeral. They would truly do anything to get pics. Sick people!

  • Eme

    Hey everyone! Sigh. So Kristen & Stella didn’t stay longer in the beautiful French countryside. Not that they would be able to enjoy it since the paps swarmed in like the parasites they are. Oh well.
    Back to the states to, hopefully, dig in to prepare for JT. And, crossing fingers, other film project announcements.
    Have a safe, good day everyone. Bbl.

  • Anna

    Stay safe!

  • MCR

    Couldn’t agree more. I can’t even imagine a life in which every action might be spied on and displayed to the public.

    Update:

    They arrived to Paris.

  • Toooten

    As far as I can tell, it is on the list — it will be shown August the 17.

  • Anna

    You are right, Toooten. My mistake.
    Thanks!

  • Toooten

    Yw Anna. 🙂

  • Anna

    Update:

    Pics are out and they are a bit more . . . tackier than they first appeared. Nothing OTT but there’s enough material for those who want to s**t on her to do so. Because she never gets a pass for anything in the media.

  • Anna

    Update:

    Pics are out. And I’m . . . confused. This Gabrielle fragrance campaign won’t be anything like any other campaign Chanel ever did if we are to judge by Kristen’s outfit (and the fact she will have a buzzcut in it). Risky move because perfume ads are usually so . . . classically cheesy and (teasingly) sexy (but in a conventional — read: typical male gaze friendly — way). We’ll see how all of this will turn out. There’s a quite a pressure as they are aiming to make Gabrielle their new Coco Mademoiselle (world’s best selling fragrance which had and still has Keira N. as its face ever since its launch back in 2007) for this new generation. Hopefully, they have a damn good concept.

    And finally! CW will become part of Criterion collection this September.

    “…even though Im not a fan of the Twilight movies, I didnt hold her personally responsible for my dislike of them, Kristen Stewart is a fine actor…” If only more critics could be this objective.

  • Toooten

    Well we are heading there with the increasing surveillance of everything and everyone, in modern society – you can’t step out of your house, without a surveillance camera watching every step you take and every move you do.

  • ME

    The Gabrielle fragrance has a gardenia base and I know Kristen says that’s one of her favorite smelling flowers so I think she will be able to authentically promote it.

    Done subtly, I think the fragrance can be quite a success. Unlike other products, I think fragrance sales are based almost exclusively on the smell itself.

  • Anna

    Oh, I don’t doubt Kristen will do her best to promote it.
    It’s just that . . . those Gabrielle bag ads, the videos, aren’t exactly good. IMO. So I hope whatever concept they have for this fragrance, it’s much better.
    I agree. It’s essential for success of that perfume that ladies actually like its smell. But good campaign can and should help all of them to get that initial interest to want to check it out.

  • Anna

    I went through those perfume ad set pics again.
    And . . . there was no camera(man) there, only a photographer. Of course, maybe he/they were inside so paps didn’t get that part but, based on those pics, it looks like it was more of a photoshoot than filming of a video ad (that we know we’ll go together with the photo ad campaign). Plus, are we 100% sure that was for Gabrielle fragrance and not some magazine shoot Chanel organized for the promo she’ll do when they finally launch that campaign?
    Anyway, don’t mind me, just thinking out loud.

  • Anna

    New artsy short film for/inspired by re-designed Chanel N°5 that was released last fall (Lily-Rose Depp is its face). Interesting aesthetic and theme, definitely not mainstream in any way.

    https://twitter.com/CHANEL/status/876011792324935680

  • ME

    I liked it except for the last line. I love that they used Lisa Bonet for this.

  • Anna
  • Anna

    What did you learn, then, from your most recent projects, Clouds of Sils Maria and Personal Shopper?

    I think that, in both movies, I’ve been able to touch on something that was a little bit of a puzzle in my films so far, which is the supernatural. In a certain way, both films are ghost stories, and I think these genre elements help me communicate with the subconcious ideas there.

    While on the subject of Clouds and Personal Shopper, what do you look for in a regular collaborator such as Juliette Binoche, who you’ve partnered with for five films, and Kristen Stewart, now up to two?

    It’s a form of complicity, and friendship. Using an actor again, there’s a pleasure you gain, because you feel they understand the way you think. It’s also a matter of being mutually beneficial – it has to be. With both Juliette and Kristen, I had the opportunity with Clouds of Sils Maria to give them something they had not really been doing in films before. With Juliette, while writing Clouds, I was thinking, “What can I offer her that she has not explored yet?” I realized she had never played herself, or a version of herself. It was similar with Kristen. She has always been a remarkable actress, but I was the one person who was able to tell her it was okay to be herself, to play off her own character.

  • Anna

    Good luck with that new project, Olivier. I guess Cannes 2018 is a real possibility for him now.

    “Going back to your desire to experiment – what’s that next experiment for you?

    I’ve written a screenplay for what will be my next film, which I’ll be shooting in the fall. It’s very, very, very dialogue-heavy. Very.”

    THR — ‘2017 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour’: Film Review

    Short-subject highlights from this year’s Sundance fest include a deservedly popular viral video and the directing debut of Kristen Stewart.

    Kristen Stewart’s directing debut may be the biggest draw in this year’s touring package of Sundance-alum short films. But as usual with these anthologies, the real stars are sometimes filmmakers you didn’t know you came to see. A varied program ranging from naughty animation to a viral-video gem, the presentation likely contains an Oscar contender or two; supporters of shorts-in-cinemas efforts will be happy to have bought a ticket.

    Stewart’s Come Swim is by a wide margin the most self-consciously arty entry here, an expressionistic collage full of drowning imagery and whispered voiceover conversations. Is it a dream? A pre-death vision? A psychotic break? What’s clear is its visual and auditory lushness and the high ambitions of its maker.

    http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/2017-sundance-film-festival-short-film-tour-1014394

  • Anna

    I like colorfulness of it. And yes, Lisa always looks good on the screen.

  • Eme

    I kinda like the artwork. Of course, I am partial to watercolor (which, I think, is the medium, but I could be wrong).

  • Anna

    Think that might be more like oil on canvas (well, the hills part) but it’s pretty either way. The truck just blends in the scenery which fits the movie.

  • Eme

    Gosh, I’m impressed both visually and intellectually by this artist. Her artistic process was fascinating to read and the way she described herself, the way she works, her internal process and what moves her – I’ve never read an interviewee that was as articulate in her description of her inner life than her. Well done. I’m looking out for her future work because she’s a stunner to me.
    And, anybody that films the beautiful Lisa Bonet has a thumbs up from me.

  • Eme

    Yes to your last line. And, yeah, I couldn’t be sure about the medium after I posted my comment. And it is very pretty.

  • Eme

    He’s such a hard worker for his films. Nice photo of him.

  • Eme

    Hmmmm.

  • Anna

    I think that’s that small French film he mentioned before.

  • MCR

    “Self-consciously arty,” story confusing, lush in look and sound, and highly ambitious. It’s not a rave review, but it’s honest and to the point, without making the director’s fame a reason to either love or hate it.

  • Anna

    It goes with what everyone else is saying: storytelling is its biggest problem (it’s not terrible nor anything like that but it definitely needs to be better to match the high quality of other elements in her film). She said she’s writing so we will most likely get more shorts (maybe even a feature film) based on her own material — I can only hope she will get a great script supervisor for those projects.
    She also said she regrets not going to college. Maybe taking on few writing courses wouldn’t be a bad idea. But that probably won’t happen.

  • Eme

    Totally agree.

  • MCR

    Probably not; her presence in a college writing course would bring unwanted attention, for one thing.
    The question is whether she has the innate writing talent – whether the short is the best she could ever manage or shows real ability that only needs development. Without that, a writing course won’t do much. It remains to be seen whether the problem is her writing skill overall, or that she simply needs to fine tune and polish a talent she already has.

  • Anna

    Not exactly. There are many ways one can take certain courses which don’t include daily presence on campus. You have people who work full time jobs and study. She has the means to find one of those special programs if she really wants to do it. But I doubt that will ever happen.
    Agree about your second point. Maybe if she goes with more traditional narrative/type of storytelling for her next short we (and critics) will find out how exactly talented for writing she is.

  • Anna
  • nonA

    since she’s more into poetry, her narrative writing skills will still be uncertain until she expands Come Swim to a feature. Peter Sattler recommended she write an adaptation of a book or other story as her first feature – probably good advice. she may need an experienced co-writer to collaborate with her. not a bad thing, & she likes to collaborate on projects, gets a charge out of it.

  • nonA

    i like it too. will the regular non-Criterion DVD be released on amazon, etc., before Sept? if it is July like was once mentioned, i won’t be able to wait until Sept for the deluxe version!

  • MCR

    I agree, making a film based on a book might be a very good idea for her. She would start with a story someone else had already organized and structured, and she’d perhaps be less likely to wander into the heavy symbolism or become too vague and mystical – which seems to be (by some accounts) a flaw in her short film.

  • Eme

    Ah, the choices we have to make when we like something very much! Go ahead, nonA, buy both!!

  • Eme

    PFW 2013?

  • Anna

    Yup!

  • Eme

    I’m getting good at this. And, I didn’t like the see-through lace pants of that outfit. But she sure looked pretty otherwise.

  • Anna

    You can rent it on iTunes next month and then buy Blu-Ray in September.

  • Anna

    Practice makes perfect ;P
    I was OK with that outfit (although, those pants could have been slightly better fitted).

  • nonA

    birthday gift for myself…x 2! never got to see it in the theater.

    on a related search, i was just browsing the Criterion Collection site & saw this in “Bill Condon’s top 10”. he’s a CSM fan.

    4. Clouds of Sils Maria

    Olivier Assayas directs Kristen Stewart, having fun with her public
    persona, in a hall-of-mirrors movie that hinges on a mysterious
    disappearance. This is a fantastic film to rewatch, since it allows for
    so many interpretations. Recently I decided Kristen’s character never
    existed at all, except as a manifestation of Juliette Binoche’s younger
    self. But who knows?

    https://www.criterion.com/explore/307-bill-condon-s-top-10

  • Anna

    I’ve been saying that (about book adaptation) for months now.
    And maybe she’ll do it . . . one day, when something interesting enough comes along.

  • Eme

    😉

  • Anna

    Oh no! He’s in the “Valentine is a ghost” camp. I don’t like that camp very much. LOL

  • Eme

    Aww, then you definitely should have both versions to make up for not being able to see it at a theater!
    And, thanks for the link above. I’m kinda on the “it’s all in her head” camp myself. But, I still haven’t made up my mind yet, lol!

  • Eme

    The subconscious always rules, Anna!!

  • Anna

    What do you mean by that?!

  • Eme

    That our conscious mind (and thus our thoughts and actions) is based on our subconscious mind (which holds desires and beliefs that we are not aware of in our awake life but get played out in our thoughts and actions). Thus, Valentine is the creation of Maria’s subconscious needs and desires to be youthful again and to replay and do differently the mistakes of her youth (it’s a little more complicated than that in my head but that’s the gist of my thoughts so far). And, what the film depicts is the *struggle* between Maria’s conscious and subconscious minds.
    LOL. Hope that made sense.

  • Eme

    P.S. And that’s only one layer of that film in my head!!

  • Anna

    Oh, I absolutely and completely get that reasoning.
    But I don’t agree. Because, I don’t think Maria was that wrapped in her head to imagine Valentine in public spaces like that bar, for example. If their scenes were limited only to that mountain house I would totally agree with the ghost theory.
    But who the hell knows. LOL

  • Anna

    I get it.

  • Eme

    Ah, but you see, we don’t really know if those scenes were real or whether they were being played out in Maria’s head. At least, that’s where I go when processing the totality of the film.
    But, yeah, the beauty and genius of this film is that it leaves the audience to decipher what really went on and we’re all going to have different interpretations. So, the film is going to be analyzed and discussed for a very long time. If I were teaching a psychology class, it would be one of the films I would ask my students to choose to illustrate a mental process of their choice. That would be so wicked to do. I love it!

  • Anna

    Yeah.
    Olivier’s mind is one very ~intriguing place. LOL

  • Eme

    Can you imagine living with him 24/7? I think I’d end up questioning every little interaction I have with him.
    Hmm, is Mia his second wife? LOL!!

  • Anna

    I think she’s his 3rd wife (but I’m not 100% sure).
    And she too has very interesting mind of her own. So being their daughter is probably a lot of ~fun. LOL

  • Eme

    Oh. Well, hopefully she has other adults in her life that aren’t as *creatively inclined* shall we say. That’ll give her a sound foundation to offset the other more *airy* influences. LOL.

  • Anna

    Yeah, agree.
    But one thing is sure: that girl’s mind will never be not stimulated. LOL

  • Eme

    True that!!

  • BrendaStar

    I agree with all of the comments on this subject even if that seems contradictory. If she is innately talented as a writer then she may not need classes. However, it could really help her to learn more then she has intuitively picked up. Education is a wonderful thing. She seems to have a great imagination, a love for poetry, and a great desire to express her thoughts in a beautiful way.

  • BrendaStar

    That was beautifully said. You may have convinced me.

  • BrendaStar

    Thanks. I think of it as an honor for a film to be selected for a Criterion edition. It makes me a happy fan that Kristen already has 3 of her films selected.

  • Eme

    Aw, thank you Brenda. Very sweet of you to say that.

  • BrendaStar

    Not really. You really presented your interpretation in a way that made sense to me. I tend to take things too literally. I hope you have a great day : )

  • Eme

    🙂

  • Anna

    Exactly.

  • Eme

    So, Kristen is still in Paris? Checked @adoringKS & there was a sighting of Kristen in the am (Paris time). Where is our lovely Kristen?

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Kristen is apparently on her way back to home.

  • Anna

    Sorry, just posted above before refreshing and reading your question.
    She’s on her way back.

  • Eme

    Yay for the Binoche! Sigh. Kristen please learn to speak fluent French!

  • Eme

    Thank you, Anna. Sure wished she had more time in France. Oh well. It’s not like it’s the last time she’ll be there! 😉

  • Anna

    Yeah. I’m glad for her but sad for Kristen, if that makes sense.
    (Unless, there is role of a young American tourist somewhere in that script.)

  • Eme

    Totally makes sense. Felt the same way when I first read the post.

  • Anna

    Yeah, same. Especially with Stella there.
    But Kristen’s probably busy with JT preps so …………………………………

  • Eme

    Yeah, from what we know about her role (which is actually 2 roles) it will require preparation. So, back to LA!

  • Anna
  • CJ

    She may be back for PFW in July. Chanel show is on the 4th.

  • Eme

    Oh. Nice to know that, CJ. But won’t she be filming JT then? I can’t remember the actual dates for filming – maybe later in the month which would be nice.

  • Anna

    Lets hope she will. Because it’s about time she attends one of those. It’s been more than a year since the last one.

  • Anna

    JT is scheduled to start on July 17th.

  • Eme

    Yay! Come on, Kristen. Give your long-suffering fans a break and grace us with PFW fashion! Lol!

  • CJ

    According to ProdWeekly it will start filming on July, 17th.

  • Anna
  • Anna
  • Eme

    Well, wherever they are I hope it’s exclusive enough that the paps can’t intrude.

  • Anna

    Well, if they really are where people think they are, there are paps there but not many of them and if they don’t know she’s there she should be fine and able to stay under radar.

  • Eme

    You think this might be another location for Chanel? Are HBG & random guy still with them? Just curious.

  • Anna

    IDK. But this looks like a very much private trip for her and Stella.

    “…the film, which will be submitted to festivals soon.”

    Brb, I’m just gonna google submission dates for fall festivals (as I think some of them have already passed).

  • Anna

    OK, so here it goes:

    TIFF — submissions are closed;
    NYFF — submissions are closed (May 12th was the last day);
    Sundance 2018 — submissions open till Sept 18th (last day for late submissions);
    Berlin 2018 — submissions will open in early Sept (and the whole process is usually over by the end of Oct).

    These were only the biggest film festivals. They may decide to go to smaller ones like Tribeca (if it gets there then it almost certainly means Lizzie is bad) or SXSW (submission deadline is Oct 20th) which is an OK choice but nothing more.

  • csm123

    I think she means that they are going to soon show the movies to film festivals. Submission is just paperwork and can be done in minutes at any point after the movie was filmed. Lineups at Telluride, Toronto, NYFF and Venice are going to be finalized in the next weeks and the programmers are in the process of watching the eligible movies.

  • Eme

    That was fun for me because I’m a fairly new fan & haven’t seen most of these posters.

    This little film traveling the world!

  • CJ

    Stella is on a set in London for a MaxFactor shoot. Possibly Kristen is with her.

  • Anna

    Her leather jacket is there even if she isn’t. LOL
    (I bet she is, though. They are spending more time on planes than enjoying those cities.)

  • Anna
  • MCR

    I might gauge career progress from the posters that featured Kristen’s face alone, where she was the main attraction rather than co-star or ensemble member: The Cake Eaters, excellent performance but little-known movie; the last Twilight, which was so-so but famous; Camp X-Ray, much better movie that her fame helped carry; and Personal Shopper, interesting movie by a great director, and a virtual one-woman show written for her.

  • CJ

    I’d bet she’s there too. It’s good that they can mix working and spending quality time together.

  • Anna

    No Speak, no Undertow, ect. but yes to Jumper. Odd list.

    What I got from that slide show is that her career is, if we are to ask general public, quite unremarkable: her good (best) films are so unappreciated, awfully so, because only few people ever saw them while her worst performances are *everything* she’s known for (and even that comes after the scandal and other private life related mess). No cult films (Adventureland is closest she came to that), no movies that might end up on the best of the decade lists, no mainstream awards attention/acknowledgment neither for her nor her films, no confirmation of BO clout outside of Twilight saga (and SWATH). I don’t think that some random person is able to say “OMG, I loved her in that!” like they can do with others in her generation. It’s all just so . . . underwhelming.
    If that list was made as an endorsement of sorts — it’s failing terribly.

  • Anna

    If they are planning to last as a couple, they have no other choice: Stella was there for Kristen, now it’s time for Kristen to return the favor. Creating that sort of balance is and will be essential, IMO.

  • Eme

    There was a poster for Undertow. And, I didn’t see this as an endorsement of her career – just saw it as IndieWire using clickbait on a slow entertainment news day. And, I did have fun looking at all the projects she did starting when she was very young. Bbl.

  • Anna

    I respect that.
    In my case, there was nothing new on that list as I already know those films/posters but seeing them like that in one place in chronological order made me realize we think her career is (far) bigger than it is in reality. There’s nothing truly exceptional in any way listed in that piece. And she did have 17 years to get to that point at least once. IDK, maybe it’s my fault because I’m seeing her with the same eyes I observe every other actor/actress which then probably makes me harsher than necessary. But that’s how I am.

  • Eme

    Idk. So, I’m thinking of her peers – Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Alicia Vikander, Dakota Fanning come to mind for me. Both Emma and Jennifer starred in blockbusters, same as Kristen, and both have done ok (as has Kristen in my book) post Harry P. and Hunger G. We can give Jennifer some points for the Oscar but Kristen made cinema history by winning a Cesar, the first by an American actress. All three have not, in my opinion, garnered the kind of BO status that brings in the big bucks – Passengers was not a huge success despite it starring Jennifer and one of the Chris (can’t remember which one – lol, my bad. I obviously didn’t see the movie). And until Beauty and the Beast, Emma W. has not starred in anything that garnered her any further BO status. Alicia Vikander has yet to prove her BO creds despite her Oscar. That may change with Tomb Raider but I’m not betting on it. And Dakota Fanning’s career hasn’t exactly been on fire either – her move to TV series is a very smart move which is something many other actors are doing given that the film industry is all about franchises and blockbusters now.
    So, in my book at least, Kristen’s career is comparable to the others. No, she hasn’t won an Oscar but others that I thought were deserving of one have not won either. And, I don’t see winning an Oscar as synonymous to *deserving* one in many cases. Jmo.

  • Eme

    And to be clear, I try not to compare because I believe every person’s path is different. I did so above just to illustrate that imo Kristen’s career so far has been fine. We’ll see what the next few years bring.

  • MCR

    But it is disappointing that Speak wasn’t included. She was wonderful in that, especially for her age.

  • Eme

    Agree. And my bad, I still haven’t seen it (I haven’t seen a lot of her earlier films but have seen everything she has done since Camp XRay).

  • Anna
  • Anna

    Fair.
    But I disagree. Also, Dakota F. is not her age (but belongs to her age group of 20-30 yo actresses) so comparing them is kinda pointless. Plus, both her and Emma W. used majority of their time to finish their studies so it’s yet to be seen what will they do when they go back to being full time actresses (but that doesn’t mean we should wait for them forever — next year or two is all they have in my book to prove themselves in some capacity). IMO, Kristen should be compared with the likes of JLaw, Emma S., Vikander, Larson (Robbie is also coming for her critical acclaim and Oscar nom this or next year) and when you do that, you realize that Kristen is trailing behind them in almost all aspects except tabloid coverage. Critical acclaim they all have, mainstream awards they all have, BO wise successful films in recent couple of years they all have, 1 or more cult or beloved by general public movies in their whole careers they have, making films on their own terms they all did/are doing (they all except for JLaw have their own production companies, Brie even directed her own first feature film while JLaw wrote one that should be made soon, ect.), big fashion contracts they all have (except for Brie), big projects in the near future that will help them maintain their A star status (in JLaw’s and Emma S.’ case) or put them on the map of worldwide stars (Brie, Vikander) they all have, awards bait or some other kind of high profile films in this or next year they all have, and so on and on and on. Long story short: they have their careers fully in their own hands while Kristen still depends on decisions/good will of other people (that goes for her directing career as well because she’s not the one whose production company is making her movies). I never mentioned public perception and I didn’t compare their treatment in the media nor their private lives (that part that affects their images) on purpose because, well, it’s pointless as Kristen will be never able to compete with them and come out wining. I know she doesn’t care about what others are doing in/with their careers but she *is* in a very competitive industry and she *is* part of the race (for those very few good roles created for women) whether she likes it or not and those ladies *are* her competition in one way or the other (not mentioning new wave of 22-24 yo actresses indies darlings that are coming to take place of the group I mentioned above when they cross into the next age group 30+). It’s underwhelming that we have to hope for miracles and surprises in order to see Kristen having a career in, say, next 5 years — relying on luck only never works well.

  • nonA

    that’s true, all are doing well, each in their own way, including Kristen. the era of Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Angelina Jolie mega-stardom has passed.

    when i flipped through the posters, what grabbed me was the “diamond in the rough” aspect of her movies. she is very watchable, unique in her intensity & delivery, more “real” than the others. she doesn’t want the big-deal career nor a production company, but that doesn’t mean she’s not successful pursuing her own unique interests.

  • nonA

    yes i missed Speak, she’s said that was a turning point for her. (Fierce People was just before that i think, it wasn’t included, unless i just missed it.)

  • csm123

    You are completely wrong about “they have their careers fully in their own hands while Kristen still depends on decisions/good will of other people …” because this statement completely ignores that other than JLaw ,Emma W and ,to an extent, Emma Stone , Kristen is the only actress in that age group that has made people in Hollywood a lot of money. She doesn’t own anything to anyone at this point in her career which means she can do whatever she wants. She has been with her agents for 15+ years and they have also made a lot of money because of her. Actresses like Robbie, Vikander and Larson have a lot of money invested in them which means that they don’t have a lot of freedom to chose their projects. Robbie and Larson have also signed multi-movie deals with comic book movie franchises which further limits their freedom. Kristen may have a net worth in excess of $50 million and almost all of that money was made outside the studio system. It is one thing to criticize Kristen’s movie choices but to say that she needs goodwill of other people is completely ignorant.

    And the answer is — no. They never said a word about Underwater (which, IMO, only confirms that FOX doesn’t give a s**t about it). And they should. I mean, per some of you here, Kristen starring in it should have been enough of a reason for them to do it because she’s still “big”. But they didn’t. How the hell they are planning to earn $200M on that film (if the $65M budget story is true) without putting any kind of word about it out there even now is beyond me.

    https://twitter.com/DEADLINE/status/877451819403718656

  • Anna

    Also, in all of those interviews TJ Miller did around Cannes (promoting his stand-up or something like that show and that animated film he stars in), Underwater was never mentioned by journalists as part of the list of his feature projects (which just goes to show that not even industry people are aware of it or that they don’t think it’s worthy of their attention). It would have gone completely under radar if it wasn’t for TJ mentioning along the way he was in the middle of its filming. Sure, some of you will say it’s not a big deal, there’s time and this is nothing but we aren’t talking about some indie here that would be good with couple of millions earned at BO — being left out from articles like those interviews is a pretty great sign of how much no one cares about it.

  • MCR

    It could very well be that the studio is indifferent to Underwater. It depends, for one thing, on which other movies were also omitted, and why. Underwater doesn’t even have a release date yet; maybe that made it ineligible. It’s even possible that not every film presented was included in the article: it says “among the other films highlighted were…”

  • Anna

    I’ve read other reports that are mentioning few films left out in that article above but still no Underwater.
    And no, not all of those films have precise release dates (some are yet to be filmed so they only presented their concepts for them).
    Of course FOX didn’t talk about all the films they have on their slate but it is quite telling that Underwater is one movies they’ve chosen to leave out even though, because of its budget, it needs to earn a lot to be profitable thus also needing a lot of promo.
    In the past, the sole fact Kristen was in it would have been enough for a studio/production company to mention this project. Those days are long gone now.

    “. . . my everything crush!” ’nuff said!

  • Eme

    You’re certainly much more in the know about all the workings in terms of the film industry so I’ve learned to not discount your views and opinions on them. I certainly agree that Kristen’s name isn’t as *big* as it used to be and that her place in HW has changed since Twilight. But I also see that as an expected outcome for someone who doesn’t wish to pursue franchises or blockbusters. And, I’m ok with it.
    From the poster history below, I get that Kristen has always moved towards indie films. I view the Twilight Saga and Snow White and the Huntsman as exceptions rather than the rule based on her filmography. They were both a blessing and a curse – a blessing financially and a curse creatively and professionally. So, given that that is where I start from as a fan of hers, I tend to take a *wait and see* attitude and try not to get bogged down on the specifics of whether the project will enhance her marketability or keep her in the *A – list* game. Honestly, I’m just allowing myself to follow her wherever she takes her career and, if there’s disappointment in doing so, then I’ll evaluate whether I want to continue to fangirl her. I have a feeling that I’ll continue to do so despite any disappointments I may have because I’m intrigued by her persona and what she does or doesn’t do in her pursuit of her art. I view her projects as windows to her inner life, as she has always said that a project has to *speak* to her in some way in order for her to do it. Blame it on my interest in artists’ inner lives and how that translates in their work and art rather than what is *success* as translated by the whims of Hollywood. As always, just my opinion.

  • Anna

    You know, and believe it or not, I share your views. I really do.
    But . . . I’m also very practical (although, that maybe isn’t the best word for it) so I tend to see the other side, as well. Meaning, the business. And there’s also a fact that, at the end of the day, results are what counts (world only remembers winners and all that). In this case, as I already said many times before, I have high confidence that Kristen will find her way to feel creatively fulfilled and accomplished. And happy. It’s just that I’m afraid it might mean we’ll somehow, along the way, lose this opportunity to actually see and enjoy in her work. Because if her movies become too small (or too niche), people living outside few selected big cities in the US won’t get a chance to see them. It’s that simple. That’s why maintaining career on a certain level is bloody hard.

  • Eme

    Yes, I agree with you about the practicalities of business and maintaining a career. I think about people who have won acting Oscars and see that winning it doesn’t guarantee a lasting, successful career (unless you’re Meryl Streep or Helen Mirren, but they are aliens from another galaxy) so it is all about business, talent, visibility and, yes, power in all its manifestations. So, it may very well be that Kristen’s career trajectory might not translate into greater visibility or staying power. We’ll see.
    And, good day, Anna, you practical person, you! 🙂

    Underwater will likely be a 2018 second half release. It is also not an established IP so why would it be mentioned there ? CineEurope presentations are usually a repeat of Cinema-Con presentations so chances of it getting mentioned were very slim unless Peter Chernin was there and mentioned it in his presentation.

  • csm123

    How many studio films has Kristen done since 2008 ? SWATH is the only movie that I can think of and it cost $170 million to make so they were going to go all out on it regardless of who was in it.

    I have the same problem, and we live in our capital, Copenhagen! But as a fairly small country, we don’t get those small (Indies) movies very often, and when we do, it’s usually in a tiny ‘obscure’ hipster theatre/café with 12 seats, and a minute screen or something like that – luckily PS will be shown in a medium sized theatre, with a ‘biggish’ screen, and I have my reservation in place for the 4th July! 🙂

    It’s the kind of thing a good assistant would suggest to her.

  • Eme

    Idk. They both seemed to have a special bond during interviews together. And he supported her in NY attending that special night to honor her. Just seems to me that she wouldn’t need anyone to suggest that she could show how much their work together means to her by attending this honor for him. But that’s just me.

  • Anna

    She was always able to form nice friendly bonds with majority of people she has worked with in her career. But . . . she doesn’t stay in touch after whatever time they had to spend together is over.
    Plus, that girl has ZERO sense for survival in that industry (for which keeping people like Assayas close is essential). She also has no sense whatsoever for business. And is quite self-centered (in a negative way). Put all that together and we have what we have.

  • Anna

    I’m with Eme: she should be able to come up with that idea on her own.
    But, your comment is true, too — she does need 100 times better team. And someone who will force her to have reality check re certain things.

  • csm123

    Jesus Christ. This isn’t about Kristen. He had made 14+ movies and only two of them starred Kristen. Binoche, Maggie Cheung and other actors have done more movies with him. Why should she be there ? This isn’t some Hollywood PR event. This is a serious retrospective which will feature his movies, Q&As and mastertalks. Kristen doesn’t belong there. period.

  • csm123

    If she had zero sense of survival she would’ve been done back in 2012 , if not before that. How many actors survive after a long career as a kid in Hollywood ? How many young actresses can survive the tabloid frenzy and Hollywood scandal ? If Kristen has no sense of survival then people close to her must be really good because the odds were completely against her.

  • Anna

    Kristen on the cover of IO Donna (supplement in Corriere della Sera, biggest Italian daily newspaper). I’ll check the interview a bit later to see if there’s anything new (it’s about Come Swim, judging by the quote on the cover).

    (P.S. Sorry for the source but it landed on my timeline and we can’t be too picky as our fandom isn’t interested as interested in Kristen’s work related news anymore.)

  • Anna

    (P. P. S. If you open that tweet you’ll see her famous ex is also featured in the magazine and you’ll also notice that his piece has *zero* mentions/pics about his private/love life while in article about Kristen it’s almost all you see. For the record, both interviews are Cannes/career related so the fact they decided to include other stuff in hers is telling. And it happens *all the time*. Sexism and usual double standards, sure, but here’s the thing: he is working on shaping his public perception while she doesn’t care about the chaos she sometimes/often creates. Oh well, she’ll suffer the consequences. Anyway………………………)

  • Anna

    The interview is short-ish (those pics and stories about her love life and style evolution took too much space) and there’s nothing new in it (this journalist was probably part of some round table interview Kristen did while in Cannes so we are already familiar with all those questions and answers).
    But, the intro/lede is quite interesting. Here’s how it starts (via google translate and edited by me):
    “Deductive premise [disclaimer?]: I’ve always had a weakness for Kristen Stewart. On the t-shirt she wore during our first meeting – she was 16 – there were Yohn and Yoko, and to explain me her projects she cited the writers who had struck her, her most favorite artists and poets.
    I had scribbled in the notes from that day: “Cute to die for, slim, sweet, awake [woke], expressive”. We spent two hours together: she fought with some oriental appetizers and told me that she lives with her family in the Los Angeles Valley, that she likes to play guitar, read and write poems but that she had few friends. I remember she was reading Cannery Row by John Steinback and Jodie Foster, with whom she had shot Panic Room, was her idol. After that, followed her always with great sympathy, perhaps affection (she is the same age and has the same idiosyncratic reactions of my daughter) in her different incarnations: from the teenager tormented to the international superstar of Twilight, from the heroine of independent cinema to the unpredictable icon for Chanel. After complicated sentimental moments – her story with Robert Pattinson was obsessively followed by the press from all over the world – now she’s in relationship with the top model Stella Maxwell. Kristen today is a young woman with hybrid sensuality, uninhibited.”

    After this, the journalist talks about her coming out during SNL monologue, her reasons to do it (posting that old quote how she wasn’t going to let people think she was ashamed of her female partners) continuing with the historic Cesar win mentioning her collaboration with Olivier saying both CoSM and PS were at Cannes and that this year she came back with a movie of her own, Come Swim.
    The end of that intro is about making a full circle and the journalist ends it this way (again, via google translate and edited by me):
    “The twenty-seven-year-old actress, more talkative than ever, talks about it today. Me, I strongly confirm the impression of that I had ten years ago: Kristen is lively, attractive, intelligent, expressive and sensitive. Today I would add: courageous and undeniable talented.”

  • Anna

    There’s this just one more thing.
    She was asked about her future plans/projects and she said she’s preparing to shoot JT (she likes Savannah very much, she thinks she’s nice and a very creative person who was thrown into a situation she didn’t know how to manage/wasn’t able to control which, and this is JMO, is exactly what Kristen can relate to and probably the reason she wants to do that movie) and then she added this (direct quote via google translate, not edited):
    “Between one film and another I write and look for another project to direct.”
    which is . . . confusing (is she talking about JT when she says “one film” or there’s is another one she’s working on; also, is the movie she’s writing different from the movie she’s looking for to direct or the same one; basically, about how many films/projects she’s exactly talking about?).

  • Anna

    They picked a nice pic of her (those eyes!). Wonder if there’s an interview inside.

    Thank you, Anna, for the translation of the interview. I like the journalist’s last quote and the write-up is fair to Kristen (I would even venture that the journalist likes her).

  • Eme

    Well, my fangirl heart says there’s at least another film project we don’t know about but my *practical* side says it’s just her talking in generalities about what she does currently in terms of her interests and work.

    That’s just part of the intro translated. The interview itself is her talking about Come Swim, her inspiration for it (that painting) and how she made it (that special technique she used), her fear of water, obtaining/losing control, her buzzcut, working with Karl, about JT and then at the end about whether there are things that can surprise her knowing she’s been acting since she was 9 years old (she said there aren’t and that acting is something that she now must do as her body demands it).

  • MCR

    Sorry to nitpick, but *she* doesn’t create the chaos; sexist gossip media creates it, whether out of an actual event or out of nothing. Saying “she’ll suffer the consequences” seems to imply she deserves it for not trying to divert gossip that will probably happen anyway. I don’t really follow her ex, but I don’t see him doing that much to shape perception and avoid bad personal press, apart from having a Y chromosome. Maybe she’s right to ignore it.

  • Anna

    I admire your patience because . . . the way I see it, this now is somehow much harder to wait out than the spring of 2013 ever was (when she didn’t have *anything* lined up except for that lame The Big Shoe movie). Back then I felt really hopeful, I was in a “no way this (OTR) is the last we saw of her” mood but today . . . IDK. She will work, yes, but I’m scared that will be way bellow her potential.

  • Anna

    Well, see, I think she could have avoided that Alicia mess, for example, that happened recently (and is now mentioned in majority of articles about her and Stella). That encounter could have been handled differently (in complete privacy or in public but with group of friends present). Especially because she was well aware that she was being followed that day and on all days prior.
    And there are also other problematic situations not directly connected to her love life. Like, for example, that time she went to grab a coffee while in NOLA wearing Underwater body makeup which made her look like she was covered with bruises (or with mud). More publications run with those pics than when she looks OK and reactions were down right terrible (everyone was sure she’s a junkie now). Being aware of that kind of reactions, thinking/planning few steps in advance is something she must do, she’s not a child anymore. It costs her nothing but can help *a lot*. Drinking that coffee in her trailer that day wouldn’t kill her.
    So, she might not be the one who is writing those articles but she is giving them enough material to start with their BS. Add to that the fact her team (well, Ruth) is utterly incapable of controlling narratives even when there is a clear opportunity to do so and you have a chaotic public perception/image that is quite negative.
    As for her ex . . . he’s playing the game (I can write a long essay about that but this is not the place nor the time) even though his public image was *never* problematic to begin with. But he’s preparing for his big come back (possible awards, multiple, as in more than 6, projects lined up + a studio film he announced, probably a TV show and diving into producing work) so he’s being smart and is doing it all by the book.

    I don’t *want* her to suffer the consequences but she will. Because every decision comes with that.

    I don´t know who „some of you“ is. I only speak for myself. But nice deflection. It´s ok if you´re too embarassed to go there.

    And btw going on and on in several paragraphs over a complete stranger´s mental state and innermost workings, talking about losing faith and being disappointed etc does sound like a meltdown to me. Guess I´m odd.

  • Anna

    Honey, I went there. I said I find your definition of a meltdown weird. Which, if you know how to read, should be enough to tell you I very much disagree with your ~interpretation of things.

    We are Kristen’s fans *because* of her inner world (it’s obvious as hell, we aren’t here because she likes to wear pretty dresses and is all bubbly and sweet and huge entertainer — she doesn’t have to be, btw, in case you are thinking that’s what I’m saying). Everything she does, good or bad, is connected with how she feels and thinks. So if discussing that is a problem for you, skip my posts (use that block button, ffs) and done. Plus, I don’t see any of you complaining when we are talking about how relaxed she looks or ecstatic or in love or whatever (those are also her “innermost workings” but you don’t care as long as it positive — god forbid someone dares to talk about negative stuff).
    Again, please, spare me.

  • Anna
  • kilkxi

    You can disagree all you like. Facts are there whether you
    like them or not. Your reaction to those pics wasnt rational by any measure.Sorry if that´s uncomfortable to hear.
    And again I speak only for myself, your reasons are not why
    I am fan nor do I claim to know anything about her inner world that she hasn´t said herself.
    I barely write anywhere, that´s why I don´t complain when someone
    talks about how she looks, good or bad. Although there is a major difference in saying someone looks sad/happy and in going on about really intimate details in depth

  • Anna

    Facts. Strange. For someone who’s advocating against stating opinions as facts you sure like to do exactly that.

    Your reaction to those pics being irrational is not a matter
    of interpretation or opinion . It´s on a public forum and available for all to
    see. I don´t know if you lack perspective or self-awareness, but any adult that does something like that, should really look into themselves.
    I don´t block anyone, that´s weak and basically admitting you´re in over your head and can´t handle what someone else is saying. I clearly am dealing with it, by pointing out your hypocrisy. I feel no need to run and hide.

  • Anna

    Hmmm. You were right about one thing: you really don’t read other sites because what I said is *nothing* compared to articles/comments out there.
    And yes, how you are reading something is only your opinion. Because, if that isn’t the case, then what we (sometimes) see in Kristen’s pics/read between the lines in Kristen’s interviews is also a fact and not our interpretation/guess. You can’t have it both way, dear.
    No, blocking is quite useful tool for situations that are clearly going nowhere but tend to happen often because ~some can’t let it go and learn to deal. It’s not created for nothing. And for the record, you will be only the second person I’m willing to block on all of my social networks accounts. Congratulations on that achievement.

  • kilkxi

    Funny that you accuse me of not being able to read. I said I don´t often write on sites, not that I don´t read them. And them being *worse*
    is a weak argument. And btw I have called out people on various sites for
    homphobia/bs about her dressing, cursing etc.

    That comparison doesn´t hold up at all. Your public meltdown
    with is a real thing that happened, you can reread it, there are people who read it. Ask anyone in your real life whether that was rational or not..or would that be too embarassing?

    What you see in pictures is nothing controversial or bad, but you choose to view it that way. Same with what you read in interviews. I choose to take it as it is, rather than write an essay on what horrible thing it might mean.

    JT casting call.

    “… producers are looking for as many as 30 actors and some roles will include lines.
    Auditions are scheduled for June 29 with shooting to take place between July 17 and August 21.”

  • Anna

    (Pssst. I still don’t understand how Winnipeg is good replacement for California but that’s just me. Sigh. And, please, no offense to Winnipeg.)

  • Anna

    Hmm. Saying she looks butch (or unkempt) these days (compared to her Twilight years which is how almost everyone knows her) is not always homophobic statement because, guess what, LGBTQ+ community thinks the same (they are even joking about knowing who is the man in her relationship with Stella) and also sorry but people have eyes. Are those all stereotypes? Sure they are! But in Kristen’s case, it’s something that’s quite real (at the moment).
    I’m *all* for defending her . . . but it needs to be a reasonable defense. And it needs to lead somewhere. Which most of the time isn’t happening because it’s either something obvious, even if we don’t want to admit/accept it, or it’s just that people are set in their ways so trying to change their mind is waste of time (but you can note how many of them thinking like that is out there because *that* does matter).

    Honey, keep chasing your tail re that meltdown talk. I have already said everything I wanted to. And yes, you want it both ways. Won’t work.

    You need to introduce yourself with the word context. Because nothing exists without it. Including those pics. That’s what is giving them (part of their) meaning. Also, while you are at it, try to grasp the idea of general public, its perception (be it fair or not) and consequence of it all. As Patti Smith once said to Kristen, clean name is what matters the most. So what’s controversial or not is something that is quite debatable.
    Oh yes, you are one of those who choose to see it “as it is” but when someone is able and willing to understand more and likes to share those thoughts with others you are quick to disapprove all of it instead of letting it go. Well, honey, I’m so sorry that I can conclude more than what it is written/said. Wait! No, I’m not.

  • ME

    Completely unrelated, but I will be at vacationing in Winnipeg on June 29. Also unrelated, my shoulders feel dry and could use a good rub.

    And not to toot my own horn, but I can play a mean nondescript girl number 2 crossing the street, or girl eating a cupcake, or girl eating pizza, or girl eating a burger, or girl eating chocolate….

  • Anna

    Why settle with so little? Go for those speaking parts! 🙂

  • ME

    I might fumble that up.

  • Anna
  • kilkxi

    I don´t care if people say she looks unkempt or butch, thats
    another thing completely but fans whining about her style are in most cases homophobes because they don´t want her to be who she is. That wasn´t what I meant at all. I don´t know if you´re being obtuse on purpose or you really missing my point.
    Being rational won´t work? I guess that shouldn´t surprise
    me at this point. You haven´t really said anything except trying to deflect from the truth. Maybe that´s a good thing, feel some embarassment now and try to take a step back the next time something like that happens to evaluate what kind of investment is appropriate.
    The context was her meeting up with an ex and that´s the extent of our knowledge. Not „losing faith“ because of that makes me a weirdo, I guess.
    You can´t conclude any more than anyone else because you do
    not know her or her business. You interpret and project your negative feelings onto everything she says and does, you might as well make “Sigh” your signature.That whole attitude is very disturbing, you may think of yourself as someone in the know but that doesn´t mean other people will buy it.

  • Eme

    Go for it! The major perks to do it – Kristen, Laura – being in the same vicinity they are – just saying!!!

  • ME

    I was being facetious. I don’t even know where Winnipeg is besides it being some place in Canada.

  • Anna

    Well hell, we agree on something! Yes, discussions about her style are close to crossing the line. My stand is this: it’s one thing looking unkempt (which she often does and I think it’s fair saying it) and completely different hating the fact she wears baggy jeans instead of cute skirts (who the hell cares). Although, this goes for when she’s just living her life, public appearances are something else.
    You said “how she dresses” which covers a lot of topics. Next time be more specific, please.
    Yes, rationality doesn’t always work (see: that other fandom or recent presidential elections — enough said).
    Honey, I don’t feel embarrassed at all. Because I was right when it comes to her films (sorry you can’t deal with that) while the jury is still out re those pics and all that.
    Um, look who’s talking: you are over-invested in what *one* fan thinks. Pot meet kettle.
    Context is also how everyone else might see it based on her past. I know you hate it, but that’s her reality. And is exactly what happened.
    I’m disturbing you? Use damn block button, girl! See, easy solution.
    Honey, that’s why it’s called guessing. And there is no law against talking about. You don’t like it? Your right but that won’t and shouldn’t stop others doing it.

  • Eme

    I know. I was just playing. I don’t know where Winnipeg is either. But it sounds cold there, lol.

  • Anna

    It’s not. (Yes, I googled it and read quite a bit about it. LOL)

  • Eme

    Really? Shows you how much I know about Canada. I always have visions of snow there for some reason. I ought to go visit Canada – sooner rather than later. It might become my new home . . . . js.

  • Anna

    Winters are really cold bur summers are hot (but not too hot like in LA).
    I got you……………………………………….

  • Eme

    For some reason, I love her expression in this photo. Don’t know why, but I do.

  • Eme

    Yeah . . . . sadly, yeah.

  • Anna

    Same! It’s just so . . . beautiful. Plus that serene and contemplative look on her face. And then there’s so much more in her eyes.
    Simply a great pic.

  • kilkxi

    Good for you in taking pride over being right that a movie
    was bad. Everyone has to get their validation somewhere and there´s only a 50/50% chance in being wrong. But I wasn´t talking about her films and you know that. You´re by far the most active user here, so your meltdown was all over blog. Calling that out is hardly being over invested.
    I already said what I think about blocking, it´s weak. You
    on the other hand have said you would block me and that the conversation was over. Kinda like you said you were losing patience over K.

  • Eme

    Yes! Serene & contemplative are great descriptions. And her eyes seem so big – like I get drawn to them and get lost just looking at them. It really is a beautiful picture of her.

  • Eme

    Uh oh. I think I was wrong – he did get a nom for Brokeback Mountain.

  • Anna

    Who said I was happy because of it?!!! SMH
    Collapse, dear, just collapse if you don’t want to read people’s opinions.
    Nothing weak about it. It’s practical.
    Don’t you worry, as of now you are joining that cm something person on the blocked list.
    Bye!

  • Anna

    Ugh oh. LOL

  • Anna

    Yes but he was snubbed 2 (or was that 3) years ago so……………………

  • Eme

    Yeah, he’s one of those underappreciated actors whose work gets overlooked because it isn’t OTT.

  • Anna

    Yup!

  • Eme

    Sorry, had to leave the board for awhile so I’m just catching up. Sorry for the late reply which is . . . that’s me, Anna, Hope Train riding always. Patience or stubbornness, take your pick. Lol.

  • Anna

    Enormous patience, IMO. And quite a lot of curiosity (that, I still have).

  • Eme

    Yup. Like I said before, I’m intrigued by her (I’m still not sure why that is for me – I’m still analyzing it all) and what she is doing with her work and art.
    I’m hoping to see Come Swim on some level (hopefully in theater) sometime soon. That’ll be something I’m looking forward to discussing and analyzing.

  • Anna

    I hope you’ll get to see it on the big screen 🙂

  • MCR

    Toronto and Vancouver offer themselves as less expensive stand-ins for various American cities, for movie purposes. Maybe Winnipeg is trying to establish itself as that kind of site. They might manage it if they select neighbourhoods carefully, in the summer at least.

  • MCR

    I don’t get that channel, but many thanks. DVD will arrive soon enough. 🙂

  • MCR

    LOL You should go for it. I’m sure they could use a good burger-eating girl somewhere in the film. I could only manage Surly Onlooker at best. 😉

  • MCR

    I sometimes wonder which represents her real personality best: pictures like this, or her manic talk-show persona. Probably a mixture.

  • Anna

    Maybe.
    Plus, this looks like tiny production so there probably won’t be (many) wide frame scenes (more expensive to film) which will prevent people from noticing differences between Winnipeg and Cali.
    I hope they have good enough location scout. And I hope Winnipeg wasn’t chosen *only* because one of production companies behind the movie is located there.

  • Anna

    70/30 in favor of her talk-shows persona, IMO.

  • Eme

    Yes, agree a mixture. Would love to see this side of her in an in-depth interview with a respected, professional interviewer.

  • Eme

    I think it certainly was one factor in the choice.

  • Anna

    Devil’s advocate here (sorry!) but we already had couple of those: that interview with VF editor-in-chief (?) from TIFF 2015, this one with Anne from Cannes, that Rose something talk show (although Olivier was there with her) during PS promo and so on and on. She’s always/still her usual nervous self. That’s just who she is and I don’t think it will ever change.

  • Anna

    Yes, I agree! I just hope it wasn’t the *only* factor, iykwim.

  • Eme

    Yup.

  • Anna

    I would love to see her wearing something similar again.

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DC8uesnXkAAYldR.jpg

  • Eme

    I still think she has that kind of interview in her. The closest we got to it, imo, was the interview with Anne Thompson (I think that was who it was) 2 or 3 years ago. She was more calm than I have ever seen her in an interview and it just seemed like the environment (1 on 1 and without an audience) added to the calm.

  • Anna

    Hmmm. Anne interviewed her only twice but the first one (CoSM promo, April 2015) wasn’t taped which leaves us only with this one from Cannes.
    Wonder what interview you are talking about. How did it look like (the set up)?

  • Eme

    Just her and the female interviewer. And I remember something being said that Kristen finally got the interview she deserved. And the only criticised moment was when the interviewer said f*ck which, at that point, Kristen hadn’t cursed – people thought the interviewer kinda egged Kristen to curse. Hopefully, somebody remembers this interview, lol!

  • Anna
  • Eme

    Lol. I’m not sure. It was a longish interview not a brief one (like they have on the RC). Where is this one from?

  • Anna

    That’s from VF interview I mentioned, TIFF 2015, a long one (close to 30 min?). It’s just Kristen and Krista Smith, VF’s editor, sitting on two bar like chairs talking.

    http://68.media.tumblr.com/de7508dc2f7a6246b9bb5c553ffaa262/tumblr_inline_nutwjlJAo81qega5p_500.gif

  • Eme

    Yes, I think that was the one. I thought she did very well in that interview or am I misremembering the whole interview, lol. Although, both of the snippets you posted she seems calm, with a sense of humor and some self-deprecating moments.

  • Anna

    That one was solidly done. A bit of usual leg shaking but that’s about it. It was good. But she never managed to act like that again. Don’t know why.

  • Eme

    The questions were good and I thought the interviewer had a calmness about her that I thought helped Kristen calm down, also.
    If she can do it once (that kind of interview) she can do it again.

  • Anna

    I agree, in theory.
    But Anne T. is also usually very calm person and yet………………………..

    (P.S. It’s ironic that an interview with VF went that well as they were one of those publications leading the witch hunt back in 2012/2013. Like, they totally were far worse than almost everyone else. And you know all of them were despicable so imagine what it means being worse than that.)

  • Eme

    My favorite is still the one with black (leather?) shorts, the loose top and striped high heels from some promo with other Twilight cast members.

  • Eme

    Yeah, I was a bit surprised when you told me it was VF. The planets must have shifted to the left that day, lol.

  • Anna
  • Eme

    Yup, that’s the one. She sure has thinned down since then. Or maybe it’s just the fit & lighting.

  • Anna

    Yeah.
    Imagine how she feels when she has to talk to VF, E! News and the likes or with all those talk show hosts who were mocking her endlessly for years? Like that Chelsea person, for example. Frankly, I’m not sure I would be able to contain myself.

  • Anna

    I think she’s pretty much the same now (when she’s not working because then she gets thin).
    But her face is quite slimmer nowadays and that’s how it will stay.

  • Eme

    Me either. Yeah, that Chelsea & Mark guy are the absolute bottom as far as I’m concerned. It gave me great pleasure to see Chelsea in that ill fitting dress the other night. Ugh. And Kristen had to stand next to the witch.

  • Eme

    Yeah, she has her *woman* face now.

  • Anna

    I haven’t checked, but apparently Chelsea only posted pic of her and January J. on her instagram from that night (no Kristen). If true, that’s whole another level of pettiness.

  • Eme

    She’s the Queen of Petty! And, hahaha, Kristen looked too good to be in her posts. What a royal B!

  • Anna

    Yup!

    BTW, I like that look very much, too. Wish it would make a come back in some form.

  • Eme

    We got the romper look at the American Ultra premiere in LA and then that very leggy outfit during the last Fallon promo so we’re getting kinda that look in different ways – lol!

  • Anna

    Both rompers (AU premiere and Fallon show) were great. But that kind of look is too rare now. I want more, Tara! LOL

  • Eme

    I always want more! But, I guess we’ll just have to re-live our favorite fashion moments until the next event.
    Oh, PFW is in early July, right?

  • Anna

    Yeah, Chanel show is on 4th of July, I think.
    We’ll see if she goes or stays in LA celebrating.

  • Eme

    She needs to go to PFW! I’m traveling around that time so I need Kristen’s beautiful pictures (Tara, bring your A game) to distract me, lol. After all, it’s all about me, you know! LOL!

  • Anna

    Hey! Get in line, Eme. It starts after me. LOL ;P

  • Eme

    You have your line, I have mine. JS. ;P

  • Eme

    And, we’ll fight for Stephanie to choose which line she wants (Or maybe she’ll start her own)!

  • Anna

    So that’s how you want this to play out?! Okay…………………….. Be prepared! ;P

  • Anna

    Nah. She’s gonna be the judge. LOL

  • Eme

    Awww, she’s not gonna want to be the judge! That’s too boring! She wants to get down with us and play! LOL!
    Hey, let’s have Olivier be the judge!
    I win!!!!

  • Anna

    Nope! Stephanie is gonna be the judge and she gets to make up the rules and change them along the way, if she wants to, just to mess with us ;P
    Olivier needs to work on that idea he has for his next movie with Kristen. Lets not distract him.

  • Eme

    Ok, that sounds like fun for her. Especially the part about changing the rules on us!
    All work and no play makes Olivier a dull boy. He needs to be distracted! I’ll volunteer, lol!!

  • Stephanie

    Lol. Love you Anna.

  • Stephanie

    Lol. I have not had smile for awhile. You and Anna just did as I am reading the posts from you two. Thank you my dear.

  • Eme

    :)) <3

  • BrendaStar

    Yes, thanks for the translation. It was rather a touching reflection on Kristen, rather different, and enjoyable.

    Hehehe. Seriously, though. In his presence . . . I would freeze. LOL!!

  • Eme

    Wow. Can’t remember for what event this was for but those are some serious eyes! Love!

  • Eme

    Still would love to see her play a badass villain!

  • Eme

    I am very pleased that his career is going well! I haven’t seen Mr. Robot yet but it’s on the list to binge watch. May he continue to soar and get great parts after the series wraps up. I’d love for him and Kristen to work together again.

  • Eme

    Hahaha!!! Cute!

  • Eme

    I thought the same thing but didn’t want to say it – better you than me, Toooten!

  • nonA

    i like the way you stated this, she goes on with her life & doesn’t play the publicity game – and that is what many of us appreciate about her. i still don’t think she ‘gets’ why people are obsessed with her & her personal life – because she doesn’t have the big ego that comes with celebrity culture (another thing i love about her). she DOES have ambition and drive to use her talent.

  • nonA

    wondering if Lizzie will play the Savannah Film Festival in late October
    http://filmfest.scad.edu/
    that would be a good addition for this small festival.

  • MCR

    I do appreciate her approach. People usually call it “playing the publicity game” when a celebrity purposely seeks out publicity; but arranging your life around avoiding publicity might be just as much of a game, and as much of a disruption in your life. At least, it’s possible that Kristen sees it that way, especially since she’s already tried hiding from it.
    It might be useless anyway; so much gossip about her is invented or distorted. Suppose, for example, she’d been ultra-cautious about meeting with her ex-girlfriend recently, and done it covertly so it wouldn’t get reported. For one thing, it would give their meeting a feeling of furtiveness that would make it uncomfortable, and thus allow the press to impact her private life negatively; for another, if it *was* discovered by the gossip press, the secrecy would make it look much more suspicious.
    It’s kind of a no-win situation, but her approach might well be the most sensible choice.

  • MCR

    Seems likely, since it was filmed there. Last year our local cinemas actually screened a tiny little indie, just because it was filmed on location here; and Lizzie Borden isn’t that minor a movie.

  • MCR

    I thought her interview with Tavis Smiley in 2014 came close. It was an unrushed 30 minute talk, he asked intelligent questions about her movies and her roles, and that must have helped.

  • gillian kemp

    Cute little thing!

  • BrendaStar

    Kristen’s closeups are always beautiful!

  • BrendaStar

    It has been awhile. Happy to see mini Bridget.

  • Anna

    Oh, I wish things are that simple.
    She makes movies. She needs people to see her movies (what’s the point otherwise). If people think she’s a shitty person (like they do) they won’t watch her movies. Because they have SO many other options to pick from. So, knowing where her place is in that food chain is a way to make sure she gets to keep doing what she likes the most — making movies.
    If you think walking around unkempt too many times to count, spending the night with an ex — it doesn’t really matter if that’s the truth or not because that is what they, the media, said (or do you want me to refresh your memory and remind you of those scandal pics and what they were showing vs. what was said they were showing aka that whole full on affair narrative and the irreparable damage that caused — it’s not what it is, it’s how it’s being perceived!), acting out on red carpets and so many other things is nothing then, I’m sorry, but that’s being more than just naive.
    No one is asking her to chop off her arm or leg and give it up, ffs! It’s just making small changes so that some bigger problems could be avoided.
    Kristen isn’t nor the most beautiful nor the smartest nor the most talented nor the most successful actress out there so that the rules will be bent to “accommodate” her personality. She simply isn’t special enough to be able to function outside the system.
    So, I’m sorry but IMO making sure you are wearing clean clothes, making sure public doesn’t know too much about your dating life, making sure you look and act like the best version of yourself while working and promoting your work isn’t much to ask for. Especially not having in mind real world out there and how everything messed up is for too many people and how easy she has it. Public sees that, fairly or not, as a spoiled brat attitude. And if you think producers, who are basically her employers, don’t see that way too then I have a bridge to sell you. No one is irreplaceable. Especially not in Hollywood.

  • nonA

    Savannah had “On the Road” for the festival just after TIFF, but i don’t think any of the cast or crew was there.

    for Lizzie, there is certainly the selling point of Kristen & Chloe as the film/fashion rebels from different decades. film twitter will have alot to say about it. husband & i are interested in how it turns out – he was amused when he saw the still photo of the cast with Kristen in character looking so devastated/guilty!

  • MCR

    I just don’t see it the same way. She spent several years working like a dog to not merely sugarcoat her dating life, but actively hide it from everyone and refuse to say a word about it. How’d that work out for her? There was constant speculation, endless gossip, some of it very nasty. Like I said, there’s no way to win this ridiculous game, especially if you’re a young woman, so why play? It’s not about being someone special and above the system; it’s opting out altogether, because the system is too screwed up to even work with any more. (I’m talking about the gossip media system, not the movies.)

    Besides which, I think you tend to exaggerate just how severe and career-destroying various supposed public reactions are. I’m mostly unaware of them except for what i hear on this site, so I could be wrong; but if it were really that extreme, wouldn’t someone who follows her career and watches her interviews pick up a little of this enormously negative response to her every action? People know that celebrity news is mostly nonsense, apart from insane internet trolls.

    Being neat and clean during public events is to be expected, sure; but then, I don’t agree that she’s constantly turning up dirty and looking like a hobo — that’s your impression. Even in casual private situations (which supposedly she shouldn’t expect to have photographed and published) she’s no more shabby, and certainly no dirtier, than the average 20-something at a party or going out for coffee. She’s not up to red-carpet standards, of course; and maybe the fact she’s in a published photo makes us unconsciously apply these standards, but that’s unreasonable. And having to be done up like a starlet on Oscar night every time you leave the house is also unreasonable.

    Do producers really take this stuff into account? I don’t know, but I’m sure some do, and I’m also sure some are only interested in the quality of the movie. Some of them, I’m sure, also take into account whether an actor is gay; whether an actress will sleep with them. Should she also toe the line for those expectations? If it costs her good roles? The point is, maybe she’s right not to pander to unreasonable expectations that don’t relate to her actual work, period, and I’m behind her if that’s what she’s chosen to do.

  • Eme

    Yes, I remember that now. That was a good interview. It makes such a difference when the interviewer asks intelligent questions focused on her career and work. And, I agree with you. When there’s time for the questions and answers, she does seem to do better.

  • Eme

    And, I meant that about the picture, not about the real-life Kristen, lol!

  • Anna

    Well, here’s the thing. Movie industry and tabloids go together hand in hand. Well, when you are a star like Kristen they do. Once one loses anonymity one can’t get it back. Unless she leaves the business for good (not even then because there always will be someone who might recognize her), she is stuck with dealing with the media and the consequences of their stories. That’s her reality and she needs to accept it.
    You are comparing two situations — Twilight years vs. this now — that have almost nothing in common. Second, who said anything about freaking hiding?! It’s about different ways of doing things, not stopping doing them! Or do you think those stars that we know almost nothing about outside their work aren’t dating, having their messy private lives?!

    I don’t think I’m exaggerating. Not at all. People don’t read/follow gossip? Then how the hell did she end up being the second most hated person in the whole USA back in 2013? And now, not only that she’s stuck with the cheater label, she has to deal with the one that says she’s a junkie or that she’s dirty and nasty looking or that she sleeps around, ect. If tabloid industry was so irrelevant, if people really don’t care, how come it’s growing every year?
    You and I definitely see this world differently. You are ready to dismiss opinions just because you know they are stupid while I think that needs to be factored in decision making because, stupid or not, those opinions are real and have consequences.

    That’s where you are wrong. Kristen is *not* your average 20 something girl. She is a Hollywood star. Period! Her life is in many ways easier than ours because of it but it also has a price she has to pay. No one here is asking her to wear designer clothes during her off time. No! But she must look clean. Sorry, but *that* is not any kind of sacrifice.

    Yes, they do. I’ve said it so many times: go and check those Sony’s leaked emails. You’ll see that those producers/executives were getting daily notifications about tabloid world. You’ll also read that they were taking in count public perception actors have during casting process and that some were out of running for roles because of negative publicity. I don’t tend to invent stuff, MCR.
    Like I said, she’s not *that* good to not pay attention to any of that. She’s free to decide not to, of course, but that *will* cost her. Hollywood is a cut throat place.

    Lol it was meant as a complement because I’m a big fan of Davis Bowie too, rest his soul.

    Is disagreement really likely to shut down the board?

    I highly doubt that. It’s not like we’re name calling each other, or even worse — I think we’re mostly quite civilized and respectful towards other people. 🙂

  • Toooten

    Why would disagreements close the board?! O_o

    — We can’t all agree all the time, that would make life boring. 😉

    This fansite and message-board is actually one of the most civilized out there, and I’m sure the most of us would like to keep it that way, despite minor disagreements. 🙂

  • BrendaStar

    Thanks, that was a cute clip. I like this board too, and hope it continues.

  • MCR

    I definitely agree.

  • Eme

    JMO: No, disagreements probably won’t shut the board down. Not having a consistent stream of pictures, articles, throw back pictures for a blast from the past, etc.might stem the traffic on this board. At least for me that’s one of the reasons I come to any Kristen board is for updates, pictures, history, etc. and to have reasonable and sometimes even humorous discussions with people on the board. That’s something I do appreciate Anna for – what she brings to the board in terms of Kristen news, updates, etc. I certainly don’t have social media or even the patience or desire to do all that so I appreciate her efforts in doing so.
    Most of the disagreements have been civil but, in all honesty, the past three days were not very pretty on this board. I don’t mind it when the discussion is reasonable and people are clear that their statements are their own opinions but when it starts moving in the direction of implications of not being a *true* Kristen fan (whatever that means), a hater or homophobic – then, in my opinion, that crosses the line. I view all posts and views as someone’s opinion, not facts, and therefore don’t feel the need to defend or contradict anything. I will give my opinion and consider others also – I might even be inclined to change my opinion based on what others say – that’s reasonable discourse. Sadly, I didn’t find it in some of the *discussions* these past three days and it has made me think whether I want to continue to post on this board. By the way, to be clear: I am only speaking about myself and my thoughts about this board.

  • MCR

    Well, I’m sorry if my comments have contributed to that.

  • Eme

    No, they absolutely did not. I have always found your comments to be reasonable, well thought out and diplomatic.

  • MCR

    Thanks, Eme. Yours likewise.

  • Eme

    Thank you. And, you’re welcome.

  • Alfred Birchall

    Whats going on here then I have had trouble getting on the net just recently and I finally get here and there are comments about dissent that I don’t get ! At the moment its quiet on the Kristen front and we shouldn’t expect excitement all the time . Cannes was really good But its bound to be quiet till Lizzie gets some traction and then Underwater !. This board is at least always true to its purpose . We fan an actress we care about but we cant demand she performs to our expectations. that’s unrealistic. GC has cleaned up but its dying a death because there are only so many times the same comments can be trotted out . This place is respectful but we cant all think the same .I am for one grateful for that realism .

  • Toooten

    I’ve just been reading a bit back in the tread, and I can see what you mean about the not so friendly ‘discussions’ but we have to expect, that sometimes provocateurs will come to the board and try to stir the pot, and the only way to deal with them, is to put them on ignore/block and they’ll probably disappear again fast – no fun if nobody respond/react.

  • MCR

    It’s definitely one of her triumphs, no matter how much or how little attention the movie gets.

  • Toooten

    I think so too, and I can’t wait to see it the fourth of July.

    Btw. Has Anna left the board, or is she on vacation or something? Anybody know?

  • Stephanie

    I was wondering about that too, Tooten. I hope everything is well for her and wish she will come back soon.

  • Eme

    I also hope she comes back soon, Stephanie. But I have a feeling that she has left the board. After all, it gets tiring having to defend oneself from accusations of not being a Kristen fan. If that is the case, I wish her well and hope she knows that I have appreciated all she has done for this board and our conversations (even when we disagreed on some things).

  • Eme

    And, hello Stephanie. Hope all is well with you in SoCal!

  • Toooten

    I too hope everything is well for her, and I would hate if she has left for good – she’s a genuine treasure chest of any Kristen related stuff, and she does a great job in here.

    I would hate to have to find another place to get my Kristen Stewart fix! 🙁

  • Eme

    Me too, Toooten!

  • Toooten

    – That would be really sad news, and I’m hoping you’re wrong. 🙁

  • Eme

    I am also hoping I am wrong. I miss her and the board is not the same without her. But I also understand fully if she has left.

  • Toooten

    Yeah me too, but I’m hoping, no praying, that she’s only taking a little time out, and will come back soon.

  • Eme

    That would be great if that were to come true. Prayers always help. Thanks, Toooten. Have a good day. Stay safe.

  • Toooten

    Yep, and I’m not even religious in any way! 😉

    And you have a good day too Eme, and yes stay safe. 🙂

    Me too. Hopefully, all is going well with Anna.

  • BrendaStar

    Kristen and Stella appear to be doing well. DM has some pics. https://www.google.com/amp/www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz

  • Gina

    Hey BrendaStar, long time no seen… I hope you’re OK. Still in fandom as many of us…As for Kristen and Stella – I’d be glad if they are going strong. Some stability would be good for Kristen’s PL, in my opinion. And I like Stella. Not as a person – I don’t follow her so I have no personal opinion of her, but visually… She isn’t classic beauty but attractive and not “dolled up” too much.

  • BrendaStar

    Hi! Nice to chat with you. Hope you are doing well too. K & S look happy together, and I totally agree about Stella providing some stability. She seems nice too from what I have seen.

    13) Personal Shopper
    Release date: March 10

    What makes it great: It’s an eerie, meditative ghost story that glides between worlds, from high fashion and wealth to the search for the supernatural. In her second collaboration with French director Olivier Assayas, Kristen Stewart plays a personal shopper to a wealthy socialite and, on the side, an amateur ghost hunter who’s searching for her dead twin brother.

    Personal Shopper isn’t to everyone’s taste (it was booed at Cannes), but it’s deeper than it seems at first blush, a meditation on grief and an exploration of society’s “between” places — on the fringes of wealth, and in the space between life and death. It also has one of the most tense, extended text-messaging scenes ever seen onscreen.

    How to watch it: Personal Shopper is slated for digital release on iTunes, Google Play, and Vudu on July 10.

    9. ‘Personal Shopper’

    Kristen Stewart hits a career peak as an American in Paris who buys clothes, shoes, jewelry and fashionable accessories for an entitled celebrity – meanwhile, in her spare time, she’s trying to make contact with the spirit of her twin brother. In this magical mystical tour of flesh and spirit, Stewart and her Clouds of Sils Maria director Olivier Assayas create a ghost story that works on many levels, especially the high plateau of pure cinema.

    Hey, Stephanie!
    I hope you are doing well.

    I’m OK but I’ll be in and out from now on (except maybe when something big/important is scheduled to happen). Don’t expect daily updates (at least not from me).

    Thanks for letting us know so we don’t worry (at least for me). You update whenever you can Anna. Love you 😘

    Hi Stephanie. Sorry for the late reply. Family day today so just catching up with the updates.
    Yes, totally agree that Anna is a strong woman and that she can handle anything anyone throws at her. It was just me reacting to some of the negativity a few days ago and hoping that Anna had not left us (which she has not, yay!)
    Glad we can all still touch base with each other on this board. Love you, too. <3 <3 <3

  • Eme

    Thank you so much for this, Anna. Great, great news! About damn time is what I say!!!!

  • Eme

    All is right with the world at this moment. Glad to hear from you, my friend and that you are well and that you will still be here so that we can still touch base with you.
    I am beyond thrilled that Kristen has gotten an invite from the Academy. Even though I dislike the politics of the Oscar race, I do still acknowledge it and the invitation’s prestige. Hope she goes for it (and I think she will accept).

    i’ve seen both, but this does make me want to re-watch. because, of course, your favorite director makes everything multi-layered! both of these seem to be very personal for him. both are available via streaming sites.

  • nonA

    just catching up after busy real life this week. fantastic news about Kristen being invited to join the Academy – overdue by a few years, but that’s ok, because now the membership is opening up to actually represent real (diverse) audiences. hopefully! i look forward to seeing a more open playing field, so to speak.

    if nothing else – fans can look for a stack of DVD screeners in the background of Kristen’s friends’ photos at her house next winter!

  • Eme

    Oh, thank you for the info nonA. Two more films on the To Watch list. And, yes, Olivier does make films that make one think hard! Love it!!

  • Eme

    Hey everyone! Any sightings of our lovely Kristen in Paris (I’m assuming that’s where she is with Stella – saw a couple of tweets on @adoringKS from CJ who is in Paris)? I really do hope she is there for the Chanel show and PFW. Crossing fingers we get to see some pretty pictures of her soon. Take care everyone. Stay safe.

    PERSONAL SHOPPER
    (Dir. Olivier Assayas)

    The twin in me can’t help but admire Olivier Assayas’s ghost story Personal Shopper with a chill and a grin. Kristen Stewart gives one of the best performances of her career as personal shopper and psychic/medium named Maureen in her second collaboration with the great Olivier Assayas after Cloudsof Sils Maria made her the first American actress to take home a César. (France’s Oscar.) Stewart is hypnotic and unsettling as tries to connect with the spirit of Maureen’s recently deceased twin brother Lewis through a dangerous cat-and-mouse game full of text messages with horrifyingly bad punctuation. As Maureen finds herself consumed with these haunting messages, the film brings to life that weird sixth sense that twins share. How we connect with our loved ones between one world and the next is a mystery, but I hope for my twin’s sake that I die first since I can only afford Freedom Mobile—I don’t even get reception in the Lightbox, so reaching the afterlife could prove tricky.

    Personal Shopper is now available on home video.

    I wasn’t expecting it to happen so soon (I thought they had it all planned for August). But they have all those top fashion journalists/bloggers/buyers in Paris for PFW so this is a good opportunity as any for maximum media coverage.
    Now I’m not so sure there will be LA launch party/event but oh well.
    I just hope the actual campaign is well done. And that Kristen will show her best self during that promo. Tbh, I’m not too confident either will happen but, at the same time, I so wish to be proven wrong.

    Because of this reply/comment from Lily Collins:

    @lilyjcollins
    We were JUST there!

    I think they were shooting those videos Chanel always posts after their shows. Also, having Kristen in Paris earlier than usual (I don’t think this was only so she could be there with Stella who had fittings and started working yesterday) together with, what it looks like, other ambassadors and knowing about that award Karl will receive, I wouldn’t be surprised if this show turns out to be quite different just like the one from July 2015 (casino theme) when Kristen opened the whole thing.
    We’ll see.
