I’ve said it before and I will say it again: if I were a young actor today I would quit before I started. If I had to grow up in this media culture, I don’t think I could survive it emotionally. I would only hope that someone who loved me, really loved me, would put their arm around me and lead me away to safety. …
In 2001 I spent five months with Kristen Stewart on the set of “Panic Room” mostly holed up in a space the size of a Manhattan closet. We talked and laughed for hours, sharing spontaneous mysteries and venting our boredom. I grew to love that kid. She turned 11 during our shoot and on her birthday I organized a mariachi band to serenade her at the taco bar while she blew out her candles. She begrudgingly danced around a sombrero with me but soon rushed off to a basketball game with the grip and electric departments. Her mother and I watched her jump around after the ball, hooting with every team basket. “She doesn’t want to be an actor when she grows up, does she?” I asked. Her mom sighed. “Yes … unfortunately.” We both smiled and shrugged with an ambivalence born from experience. “Can’t you talk her out of it?” I offered. “Oh, I’ve tried. She loves it. She just loves it.” More sighs.
– Jodie Foster penned an absolutely beautiful essay on The Daily Beast about acting, celebrity, and juggling vulnerability in one’s craft with impenetrability in one’s personal life. The essay is about Kristen Stewart’s hell-hole of a life right now, of course. But Foster does not address the cheating scandal head-on; instead, she asks readers to remember “a salary for a given on-screen performance does not include the right to invade anyone’s privacy, to destroy someone’s sense of self.” Not only am I impressed with Jodie Foster’s writing chops, but I find it touching that she’s written a piece standing up for a younger actress — and reminding us all we’re just human beings.

Just days after eating his feelings with Jon Stewart over a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, Robert Pattinson hit up “Good Morning America” for some awkward conversation about “the elephant in the room,” as interviewer George Stephanopoulos put it.
“I want my fans to know Cinnamon Toast Crunch has only 30 calories a bowl,” he deflected when asked about the K-Stew cheating drama. Stephanopoulos pushed and pushed but all R-Patz would say was:
“You get into it to do movies. I’ve never been interested in trying to sell my personal life. The reason you go on TV is to promote movies.” Keep reading »
Back in the late ’60s, psychologist Elizabeth Kubler-Ross wrote a book called On Death and Dying, which offered up an analysis of the stages of grief. The book revolutionized our cultural thoughts about grief, explaining that most people go through five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and finally, acceptance.
And that’s exactly what Twihards — fans of Twilight and all things Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart — are going through right now. They’ve taken to Twitter to express their grief about Robsten –what Twihards call the union of Kristen and Rob — in the wake of news that Stewart cheated on Pattinson with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders.
Twihards have so many feelings! And are maybe a little unhinged? After the jump, we’ve found Robsten devotees going through the grieving process online.
