“I remember the very first time I saw Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson together, when they were younger, and I thought, Those two kids could have easily played us when they were first starting, Kristen has a very special quality. She’s not conventionally beautiful, but very charismatic.”

Patti Smith, on who she’d like to have play herself and Robert Mapplethorpe in a film adaptation of her memoir, Just Kids. She also said that maybe Mia Wasikowka and Saoirse Ronan would do, but says she’d actually prefer an unknown, since she and Robert were “unknown.” [NYMag.com]
