“I would never work with people who aren’t really creative and aren’t committed to what they do. Unfortunately, there are a lot of those people out there, they are fucking everywhere, and they try to suck the soul out of you. For example, I would never do a makeup campaign, even though the [final] photos with me would probably look good. Thank you, but it doesn’t interest me.”
― I want so badly in my heart of hearts to root for Kristen Stewart, but she makes it so damn hard. The cover star of the new issue of Glamour Germany had some pretty smug things to say, and I’m frankly kind of astounded by how conceited and ungrateful she comes across. What makes a makeup campaign any more superficial or “soulless” than her Balenciaga fragrance campaign (the tagline of which is, creepily, “the new eau de parfum worn by Kristen Stewart”) or, for that matter, the entire “Twilight” franchise? Let’s hope that at least some of this interview’s self-centered tone can be chalked up to the translation, and Kristen isn’t actually this unsympathetic. [Celebitchy]
Everyone else is as sick of the “Twilight” movies as I am, right? We’re just ready for this long national nightmare to be over. A second “Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2″ trailer debuted last night at the MTV VMAs, revealing how the budget for creepy contact lenses in this second movie was through the roof. And it’s weird to see Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart onscreen together after this summer of discontent. It’s going to be a long, uncomfortable autumn of movie promotion and frankly I’d love to put that behind us as well.
Sorry, Twihards, but “Twilight” is really terrible. Which is why I love this “Bad Lip-Reading” version of the movie so much. I mean, it can’t really get more ridiculous than it already is, can it? [YouTube]
“The fact is, these are actors playing parts, and maybe it’s not such a bad thing that people be reminded of that. Both of these actors gave heart and soul to the ‘Twilight’ movies, not only during shooting, but also by navigating so graciously the whole life-in-a-fishbowl aspect of the phenomenon. Above all they have always shown great respect for the fans who made these movies such a success. Now it’s time that some of that respect be returned to them.”
I know everyone is all ARGH SO OVER the Robsten breakup, but I couldn’t help but have my attention held just a millisecond longer by this quote from “Breaking Dawn” director Bill Condon. It sounds like the director is saying they are a real couple and fans/the media need to lay off them during this difficult time. Though I’m not really sure the way to get respect for your private life is to issue a public statement about cheating. [Crushable via Entertainment Weekly] [Photo: Getty]
I can sum up my feelings on “Twilight” with one brief anecdote: I was coaxed into going to the second (third? I don’t remember) movie with a friend for her birthday and bolted when she went to the bathroom half an hour in. Sneaky! Pretty mean, too, now that I look back on it.
The fact of the matter is that the teenyboppin’ vamp series just doesn’t do it for me. Ashley Greene doesn’t particularly do it for me, either, but I’m starting to warm up to her: of all the movies’ stars, she seems to be the most sartorially inclined, and it helps that, much unlike that harpy K. Stew (I kid, I kid), Ashley always looks comfortable in her clothes and happy to be where she is. I’m really into that — you’re rich, you’re famous, you’re beautiful — just smile, damn it!
