I have my doubts about Kristen Stewart’s capabilities as a dramatic actress, but I’ll gladly take her as a red carpet presence: in the last few months (or, really, publicity rounds) she seems to have emerged from her cocoon of hideously uncomfortable public awkwardness to flit around like a sneaker-clad fledgling butterfly (if only she would keep her damn hands out of her hair!). As far as beauty goes, the “Twilight” actress (duh) rarely ventures outside of a semi-safe smoky eye/nude lip or clean eye/red lip scheme, but this weekend’s appearance at Comic-Con saw her switching it up in the most on-trend way possible.

Someone took some naughty cell phone footage of “On the Road” at a Cannes screening. It’s very poor quality and there are French subtitles, but yes, that is Kristen Stewart topless, giving simultaneous handjobs to Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley in a moving vehicle. Firstly, that sounds very dangerous. Don’t try it at home. Secondly, I am now kind of excited to see this film. Thirdly, if only Jack Kerouac could see this … how proud he would be. [WOW; Fleshbot]
“Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 1″ had the wedding, the gown (!), and sexy vampire sexy sex. Oh, and shirtless werewolf hunks. Now the trailer for the last movie in the “Twilight” series, “Breaking Dawn, Part 2,” is here and there’s no way it can compare. The final part of the saga is all about Bella and Edward trying to protect their daughter Renesmee — who, this being a “Twilight” movie, is fearing for her life — and an epic werewolf/vampire battle with the Volturi. Twi-hards may be into it, but as a somewhat apathetic fan, I really think I could skip this one. But of course, I will take my movie-going cues from noted cinéaste James Franco, per usual.
Once upon a time, the highest paid actor or actress in Hollywood was someone who had a bit more gravitas than “Twilight.” But Kristen Stewart has topped Forbes magazine’s list of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, cashing in with $34.5 million in the past year.
This doesn’t sit well with Kathie Lee Gifford, who just doesn’t understand why the Kristen won’t smile. Join the club, KLG. And she even goes so far as to offer smiling lessons, although I think we can agree Tyra does it better. Now, what’s this about K-Stew’s “back end”?
“Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother’s clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn’t wearing Juicy jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. But it’s not like I didn’t care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me. I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, ‘Oh my God! That’s disgusting — you don’t shave your legs!”
— Kristen Stewart may prefer jeans and dirty sneakers in her downtime, but when it comes to the glossy, highly coveted cover of a magazine, the “Twilight” actress sure does clean up nicely. Stewart is an unlikely style icon, a rare breed who grapples to stay true to herself even when inundated with ideas of what she’s supposed to be like. It seems that the 22-year-old actress has even come to embrace her cover-girl side, and she plays the glamorous part better than we could ever have imagined when she first emerged on the scene as a messy-haired tomboy, but who’s counting? The upcoming July issue of “Vanity Fair” features Stewart glamorized to the utmost point in Paris, photographed by Mario Testino in avant-garde fascinators and lush gowns. The cover alone has me wanting more, more, more — I’m fascinated by Kristen and her dichotomy of soft, sensitive femininity coupled with headstrong boyishness. [Vanity Fair]
