Kristen Stewart was grumpy at the Oscars because ‘she has insecurities’ of course

Everybody is still talking about Kristen Stewart’s grumpy, greasy, grunty appearance at the Oscars. Everybody is still analyzing what went wrong, although I think they’re asking the wrong questions. Like, people are too focused on the issue of her limp and this “stepped on glass” story when we should be asking: why didn’t she just cancel her appearance? It’s not like she was nominated, you know. She was just a presenter! Another questions we should be asking: why does she always look so greasy? Why didn’t she wash her hair? Why did she look and act like she smoked a massive blunt before she came on stage? Hilariously, everyone who interacted with Kristen now has to comment about her. Daniel Radcliffe (who co-presented with Kristen) had some nice things to say:

Kristen Stewart didn’t really need to limp onto the stage when she presented with Daniel Radcliffe last night at the Oscars.

“I felt so bad,” Radcliffe said at the Governors Ball. “I just wanted to pick her up, put her in my arms and carry her onto the stage.”

Or maybe not. “I probably would have dropped her and opened her wound again,” Radcliffe added with a laugh, referring to K.Stew’s reason for hobbling on crutches: cutting the bottom of her foot on glass!

Kidding aside, the Harry Potter star said it was about time he and Stewart met.

“I felt like this was a long time coming. I feel like we’ve been meant to meet,” Radcliffe said. “This was the perfect way. And you know what? She is so nice—really, really nice.”

Radcliffe also dished on dancing during the show. At one point in the night, he said, he was backstage with fellow Oscar dancers Channing Tatum and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

“I looked at them and was like, ‘Remember your first day of work on your first job? Could you believe we’re doing this now?’” Radcliffe said. “They were actually thinking the same thing. The night has been surreal. I never thought I’d be doing any of this.”

[From E! News]

Kristen also met Anne Hathaway backstage, which would be an interesting pairing – Anne is so cloying and Kristen is so grumpy. It would be like Franco/Hathaway all over again.

According to the Associated Press, the blockbuster actress encountered another A-list actress backstage before that presentation– Anne Hathaway, immediately after her Best Supporting Actress victory — and finally dispelled the mystery behind her unexplained injury.

“Oh no!” the Prada-clad Les Miserables star, 31, exclaimed in sympathy, seeing Stewart’s crutch.

“I know, I’m an idiot,” Stewart (stunning in a Reem Acra gown, Jimmy Choo heels and Fred Leighton jewelry) replied. “But congratulations!” she said, eyeing Hathaway’s hard-earned Oscar.
“Please tell me you’re going on stage with those [crutches],” Hathaway said, the AP reports. “Nope,” Stewart replied. “I’m gonna hobble.”

Quipped the “I Dreamed a Dream” singer: “Well, break a leg . . . Oops!” Stewart then explained that she cut her foot recently after stepping on glass. “I just hope [the wound] doesn’t open up right now.”

Indeed, Stewart’s glam squad told Us Weekly more about the young star’s injury. “She had sliced her foot and everyone was worrying about would she wear heels or flats or one heel, crutches or no crutches,” manicurist Ashlie Johnson told Us. “She tried so many options, she was really a trouper.”

“Kristen was nervous about her crutches so having her friends around playing music was just what she needed,” hairstylist Danilo said. “We all were trying to make her feel better and her friends were trying to tell her she’d be fine, she has insecurities about being in front of people so today was even tougher.”

[From Us Weekly]

“Break a leg! Oops.” Bitch move, Annie. I kind of love it. As for how Kristen was trying different options – crutches or no crutches, flats or no flats – seriously, why couldn’t she just cancel? They had plenty of celebrities who were already scheduled to appear, and one of them could have easily filled in.

    I like her. I like that she is imperfect. She’s a mess with messy hair, a work in progress and is not pretending to be otherwise. She comes across as human and vulnerable. She’s young and it will be interesting to see her journey. I hope she doesn’t let the embarrassment of recent bad choices get her down too much. The important thing is to learn from mistakes.

    • BB says:

      She always looks like a junkie to me. Kristen does not clean up well. How hard it is to look nice and glamorous for one night?

      • c'est la vie says:

        Apparently, for her it’s impossible. She should have canceled. She just damaged her image – again. Didn’t think that was possible, but there you go. She’s a train wreck. And what an ugly dress.

        Where, oh where is her pr team? Or stylists?

    • bns says:

      I think she tries way too hard to emphasize just how imperfect she is to separate herself from other young actresses and make herself seem unique and edgy somehow.

      • booboocita says:

        Problem is, there’s edgy and there’s slovenly, and I don’t think KStew ever learned to tell the difference. There can be some overlap, of course, but “edgy” isn’t always “slovenly.”

        I hadn’t realized until I saw these photos that her hair was that mussed. She looks as if she stepped outside in a high wind. Must be quite a draft in the Kodak Theatre.

    • Jane says:

      Ummmmmmm…no. She’s an actress and is an adult surrounded by professionals. She. can. fake it.

    • Annie says:

      She’s too old for that perpetual sullen teeenager face/attitudes though!

    • andrea says:

      She’s a contrived mess. She thinks it makes her cool or deep or whatever to be like that. Which is fine, it’s her life, but if she can’t pull her head out of her own ass long enough to show respect and professionalism where it counts, I really don’t see her lasting much longer in the business. She’s just not that good an actress to make it despite the attitude.

    • Claudia says:

      I like her too, for the same reasons. She’s awkward, she has a bit of social anxiety, she’s very much her age. I’m only a few years older than her, and I can still relate to that.

      I think if she had canceled she would have been criticized for it. Damned if you do/don’t, blah blah. I think she wanted to stick it out for herself, though.

      • Marigold says:

        Stick it out for herself? She walked onstage and did a poor job of reading a TelePrompTer. You act like she was attempting to climb Mt. Everest.

      • Claudia says:

        Holy exaggeration Batman! Climbing Mt. Everest from “stick it out”? Seriously?

        No. Her foot was hurting, she was obviously nervous and insecure, and probably going solo (which makes things less fun for us 20-some-year-olds). In any case, what I meant is that sometimes people with social anxiety issues try to force themselves through situations that bring them that anxiety, to sort of challenge yourself for the better. I’m probably just projecting, but that’s how I am when I feel incredibly anxious about going to a party or some community event (e.g. “I’m going to just go and stick it out, see how it goes.”)

        Edit: I just wanted to add, I didn’t watch her present so if she sucked that’s really unfortunate. I am lumping her attendance to the Oscars with her presenting, since I doubt if she had cancelled as presenter that she would have attended anyway, as that would have resonated badly with people.

      • Moore says:

        I agree that if she had canceled then we would have at least a hundered comments on this board about how unproffessional and disrespectful canceling at the last moment is. Girl really can’t win.

      • Marigold says:

        She’s had about a million chances to work through her anxiety. If she’s trying to face her fears to overcome them, it’s not working.

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        Claudia please stop making excuses for this adult! I’m in my 20′s as well as Daniel and Jennifer. If those 2 can act professional how is it that Kristen can’t? She’s been acting longer than them. She’s too old to be angsty and if she’s so insecure and hates walking the red carpet, getting dressed up, etc… she should find a new job. She’s not even a good actress.

        If she pulled out of the oscars no one would have cared past the blog sites for maybe 2 days. She wasn’t hyped and wasn’t up for an award. Also, she looked like hell. If I was insecure and went looking that bad I’d be asking for it.

        She’s an adult who has made her own decisions and has yet to show she’s learned from any of them.

        Side note: wearing strapless tops while walking in crutches is always a bad idea. Your top flexes in an unflattering way and the crutch could pull your dress down.

      • Haha27 says:

        I don’t think she looks her age, nor is she awkward or original. I don’t know her, but she comes across as a bit of a junkie to me, and I won’t be surprised if she takes a Lindsay Lohan turn. Actresses like Jennifer Lawrence, Dakota Fanning and a few others are proving that it’s possible to gracefully do what they do even though they’re young. And those actresses come across as real without being a hot mess in the process.

    • Elsie says:

      She didn’t even need to cancel, she could have GASP…skipped the red carpet. It’s not compulsory and if you claim to be in pain, that you’re only there to fulfill your professional obligation (ie not there for publicity…eye roll) and you’re “insecure”/under the influence, there is no reason to walk. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. I would have more respect for her if she was consistent. You can’t hate the paparazzi and the big bad media and then pander to them whenever your career needs a boost. That’s bad business.

      • pepper says:

        I agree. She could’ve easily skipped the red carpet. She need not have bothered with a red carpet interview either. Why did she have to do that? Has no new movie coming out. She needed that attention on her pure and simple.

        She could’ve walked on stage with her flats on instead of one heel and one flat shoes like she did which ended up accentuating her limp more. What a fake person. I cannot believe Rob wants to be associated with this POS.

    • Chickenlishus says:

      I really like this outlook…I feel the same way! Btw, this refers to the first comment written.

  2. mel says:


  3. treefingers says:

    All I can really think about is how much of a sweetie Daniel Radcliffe seems.

  4. C. C. Cedras says:

    Yeah, I can believe her hairstylist sat around playing music. SHE HAD A HAIRSTYLIST???!!!

  5. Meryl says:

    This girl has a hairstylist?!! Sounds like a dream job, getting paid for doing absolutely nothing…

  6. shewolf says:

    I can’t hate on her, I just can’t. She seems like a normal girl and I think her hair looks alright. She probably left the salon with a fantastic blowdry but didn’t primp or preem like she should have to keep that hair style from looking a mess.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      She is a normal girl. She’s got a hand full of normal teenage angst and issues. It’s just a shame it has to all play out in front of the world. But that’s her fault. She wants to be an actress on only her terms. No paps, no rumors, no red carpet responsibilities, and no being presentable to her young fans.

      JLaw hates getting dressed up and schmoozing, but she admits it has to be done so she sucks it up. If Kristen really hates that side of being an actress so much she needs to quit and do theatre.

      And her hair is only so awesome because she never washes it. It’s thick and full because it’s slick with grease.

  7. elola says:

    I like her a lot more than Jennifer Lawrence, that’s for sure!

  8. Relli says:

    Personally i loved everyone’s reaction in my living room when she came on the screen, “uh whoa, whats wrong with her.”

    Like o said before her face is not going to age well.

  9. Gine says:

    How was she grumpy? She was smiling and joking about her injury on the red carpet and yeah, she seemed kind of out of it onstage, but I chalked that up to painkillers. Or pot. In all the candid pics I’ve seen, she’s happily chatting with/hugging people.

    I’m not a fan of hers (she’s a TERRIBLE actress), but I feel like a lot of people have just decided she’s a certain way and stick to that no matter how she actually acts.

    • Another Ann says:

      I agree with you. Her acting and presentation abilities aside (she’s awkward to be sure), I think people tar her with the same brush regardless of what she does.

      The clips I saw of her at the Oscars, in the crowd and on the carpet, she looked fine. She was smiling and chatting with people like everyone else. I didn’t see grumpy. DanRad (who I love!) said she was really nice. Maybe the people who actually know her know better than the critics at home?

      • jaye says:

        As someone who was REALLY awkward at that age (and still am, to a degree some 20 years later) I guess I can kind of relate to her being awkward in situations where she can’t just disappear behind a character. I DO think that whole “I’m a badass” schtick is a defense mechanism because she is so self-conscious and awkward.

    • Miss Bennett says:

      I agree, she didn’t look grumpy. However, she did look out of it. What is it that Lainey says, “pinned pupils”? It would have been better if she had stayed home.

  10. Maria says:

    english gentleman. he had a very ungrateful task to present with her.
    if you are not happy to be there, dont go there or act happy, thats your job.

  11. Babalon says:

    Anybody remember when Cam Diaz broke her heel on the red carpet, went barefoot and was later proclaimed saintly for doing so? This is the same sort of thing. It’s a foot. A cut. Crutches. BFD.

    I don’t dislike her, despite her insistence at being Eeyore in public. However, I do think she should have stayed home, uncomfortable-in-her-skin and vulnerable, in private.

    It’s the Oscars. I don’t need to see this crap.

  12. Mira says:

    I like her necklace (??). It’s simple and beautiful. This girl along with Aniston cannot win on CB.

  13. marie says:

    here’s my question.. if she’s on crutches why is her gown strapless? I’d be so afraid that the dress would fall-that would have to be some heavy duty tape.

    • Another Ann says:

      That gown would have been decided far in advance. The injury apparently just happened a day or two before the show, by which point she already had the dress.

      • marie says:

        I understand that, but had it been me I would have chnged it up for fear of the crutch catching my dress and causing it to fall. plus, since it was picked in advance you’d think that they would have sized the dress better, the thing makes her look box-y.

      • Another Ann says:

        Do agree with you about the fit of her dress.

        However, the day before the show, the pickings would be mighty slim if she wanted to find a new dress. That’s how Anne Hathaway ended up with that pink disaster with the nipple arrows. There was some kind of last minute change from the Valentino she was supposed to wear. If Anne, as a sure award winner, could only come up with that mess at the last minute, imagine what little would be left for a presenter.

      • Miss Bennett says:

        Sorry, with her connections, there was no excuse for the horrible fit on that dress or getting another dress more appropriate. I’m positive Mrs. Weinstein would have been happy to send her something.

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        I agree with you ladies. She could have found another dress or at least had a back-up or post oscar party dress.

        She’s a slender girl. It would not be hard to fit her type in a pinch.

        Annie is a poor comparison. She’s picky and knew the dress she wore was the dress she’d get her oscar in. Her nips didn’t offend me though.

  14. Lisalou says:

    Ok, she needs to get some sort of color rinse in her hair so it doesnt have golden highlights at the top and red at the bottom. My hair is the same right now and i am just being too cheap and lazy to get it fixed. She also needs to use less conditioner because her hair never really looks too clean.
    She wears the absolute worst colors for her complexion. If she wore some jewel tone gown like purple she would look great but instead she chooses washed out ivory that makes her skin look unhealthy and shows off her bruise. Please girl. Get a stylist or at least get a bit more taste. You could look so much better.
    That is all.

  15. T.C. says:

    Quipped the “I Dreamed a Dream” singer: “Well, break a leg . . . Oops!” Oh AnnE. LMAO.

  16. B says:

    I would like to see her attend or promote one thing without drama. She reminds me of Lindsay Lohan. It’s always something with these two. Act, promote & shut it! Be a hipster douche on your own private time.

  17. freeloveforall says:

    I watched some of the red carpet activities the night of the Oscars and they were flipping back to some of the best dressed actresses. Kristen was in the background, posing on the red carpet. Her right leg was fidgeting all around while she was getting her photograph taken. Not sure if that was the injured leg or not but it sure looked like nervousness to me.

  18. Nicolette says:

    I can’t hate this girl. Yes she’s awkward, she seems really uncomfortable a lot of times, and she could use a better stylist. But the level of hate that’s been hurled upon her is too much. I wasn’t aware that everyone else in Hollywood was so sacrosanct compared to her.

  19. Dani says:

    I want her to make a play for Dan Radcliffe after Sparkles dumps her. My life would be complete.

  20. bns says:

    Her attitude makes her impossible to like. I liked her dress and I didn’t even mind the messy hair, since it’s kind of a signature style for her, but her eye rolling and sulking makes her insufferable. And her injury isn’t really an excuse because she’s always like this. I can’t wait until people are over her in about a year or two.

  21. Merman says:

    The hate for this woman is amazing.It’s not gossip anymore it’s straight-up bullying(which should be reserved for the likes of Chris Brown).And it’s possible to like her and Lawrence.Radcliffe too.The horror.

    • flor says:

      The hatred towards Kristen and Anne are unwarranted. People take it so personal, is embarrassing that they act like this over people they do not even know

    • HK9 says:

      If you’re having trouble with this then take a look at the Kate Middleton threads and come back. This is warm and fuzzy my dear, warm & fuzzy.:-)

    • Moore says:

      It is like chickens. If one doesn’t act quite right all the others peck it to death.

    • Miss Bennett says:

      I don’t see hate, I see constructive criticism and unbiased observation. It’s unfortunate that Miss Stewart’s fans see any negative comment on her as hatred. Hatred involves emotion and energy and frankly, no one here cares enough to expend either. Her dress was not tailored correctly, her hair was a mess and it’s obvious that she was in some way altered. Miss Stewart is in desperate need of new management and a new stylist and hairdresser. Time away from Hollywood and some intensive acting lessons could save her career. The truth is that she is no more immoral or flawed than any other spoiled young actress in Hollywood, she just got caught. It’s her reaction to these events that have extended the negative press. If you would assist her in the rise to the top of her profession, refusing to see that Miss Stewart is her own worst enemy is not the way to help her.

      • lady mary. says:

        @miss bennet ,very eloquent words,u just read my mind,kstew has such an attractive face ,if she indeed pulls her act together she could rise well in her field

      • @Miss Bennett says:

        SLOW CLAPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Another Ann says:

        I agree with much of what you said about her, and the way you phrased it is indeed constructive criticism and perfectly valid. She needs a new publicist, stylist, and probably manager as well. And time out of the spotlight.

        However, there are many others on any Kristen Stewart thread that do spew intense hate for her. Calling her names, hoping she never works again, insisting that she smells (apparently you can deduce this from a picture), picking apart her every move and so on. This particular thread is actually tame compared to many others.

        You’d think that only her fans would care about her, but most comments here are from people that supposedly can’t stand her. Check out how many comments a KStew thread has vs others. Most are negative comments.

        It’s a really interesting social phenomenon how this girl generates such extreme responses. She has fans that love her to death and support her even when she’s done wrong, and she has detractors that despise her and slag her even if she does something harmless. It’s kind of fascinating to observe if you’re into that sort of thing.

      • Nina W says:

        No one would react to her like they do if it weren’t for her being in Twilight. She would be completely forgotten otherwise.

  22. Original A says:

    Look, I think it’s dumb that she didn’t cancel (the bruising, the limp) because she was clearly unwell. Simeone said there were photos of her partying two days before, and that she likely got drunk and stepped on a bottle or something and fell. Also, she needs to fire that hairstylist. That said, I really don’t get why there are several articles on why Kstew was awkward (as she always is)…I even used to be a fan and now am meh, but this is just a boring subject for several articles (I guess she’s good for Internet hits)? Rene Zwelleger being drunk as a skunk, Heidi Klum and Brandi Glanville’s dresses, are more interesting than what DanRad thinks about KStew being injured.

    Also, someone at my Oscar party said something interesting….If you are a crappy public speaker no matter what, then you (and the people around you or in KStew’s team
    her PR) need to avoid unnecessary situations which involve public speaking.

  23. MonicaQ says:

    I don’t care for her acting style but I was absolutely smh at all the facebook comments.

    “She has no obligation to any of you, stop slut/body shaming her!” <– summed up the torrent.

    Meanwhile not a peep about Quvenzhane Wallis. Nice to know people love to pick their battles. (Not here, that was mentioned but I'm talking about on fb).

    • @MonicaQ says:

      IKR? 22 year woman is a young victim but apparently a 9 year old child is old enough to be humble, wtf?? This is why I will never support these delicate little trampy Hollywood actresses, they get everything so easily while everyone else is put through the ringer for the simplest things.

  24. Annie says:

    She should’ve just cancelled. She looked all drugged up from the pain meds, obviously uncomfortable, antisocial and awkward as always, why go? The only thing she managed to do was piss everyone off because her attitude sucked as per usual. She did no favors for herself with this appearance. But oh no, she has to trick people into thinking she’s still super relevant despite all her upcoming roles being canned or being nothing major, really.
    Also, she’s insecure because no one in that room has been called a bad actor over and over and over again, and have never been caught being an idiot with a married person (even if plenty of people do a lot worse! But they never get caught). Everybody knows she was caught with her director. Not cool that your peers now know how you get those roles. Those are her insecurities.

    Seriously, if you’re not going to enjoy yourself, have fun, feel good, socialize, DON’T GO. She looked like a teen being forced to go to church. Enough with that face.

    • Michele says:

      “Seriously, if you’re not going to enjoy yourself, have fun, feel good, socialize, DON’T GO. She looked like a teen being forced to go to church. Enough with that face.”

      Sorry, but she DID seem to enjoy herself on the red carpet. She was socializing as much as the next celeb occupying the red carpet. She chatted with and even hugged Jennifer Lawrence. Jamie Fox asked for a pic of her and his daughter and Kristen happily obliged and posed for pics. She was seen chatting and hugging Eddie Redmayne and his girlfriend on the carpet. She joked with MTV’s Josh Horowitz about her injury. She chatted with Anne Hathaway backstage. Later that night, Anne complimented both Kristen and Jennifer for being young, talented actresses. Hung out with Dan Radcliffe backstage long enough for him to form a very favorable impression of her. And those are only the people we know of because we saw pics.

      I saw lots of pictures of her smiling on Oscar night. Of course, the blogs and tabloids will pick the ones of her not smiling to reinforce their bs stories about how grumpy and sullen she was at the Oscars.

      Another thing. Her stylist released a pic of Kristen’s Oscar dress, shoes and also an adorable black mini dress she would have worn to the afterparties, but since her foot was really bothering her, she didn’t attend any.

      • Annie says:

        I love how you’re always inside her mind Michele. Must be fun to read people’s thoughts. While we all go with the photographic evidence and everyone agrees with what we’re seeing: snotty tired bored face, eye rolls and awful attitude, you know the inner workings of her mind.

        Out of all the people to admire in this world, you choose an immature, immoral, untalented brat living an extended adolescence because she doesn’t know who she is, so she uses the same defense mechanisms insecure girls use in high school. What is likeable about that? No idea.

      • CC says:

        Add horrible posture in her chair during the awards, the bored voice while listing the nominees. But I guess it’s too much to ask a 22 yo to be professional and appear interested.

      • Michele says:

        “I love how you’re always inside her mind Michele. Must be fun to read people’s thoughts. While we all go with the photographic evidence and everyone agrees with what we’re seeing: snotty tired bored face, eye rolls and awful attitude, you know the inner workings of her mind.”

        Sorry, but every encounter I described on the red carpet has photographic/video proof. I know, because I saw the pics and videos. Kristen was NOT snotty, rolling her eyes and looking bored the whole time there. She was very sociable on the red carpet with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Jamie Fox and his daughter, Eddie Redmayne and his girlfriend, Anne Hathaway, etc…

        I’m sorry if photographs and videos of Kristen socializing and smiling at the Oscars doesn’t support your anti-Kristen agenda. Funny, YOU seem to be the one inside HER head! HA!

      • Janet says:

        Oh come on, Michele, the excuses you keep making for this woman’s behavior are getting lamer by the day. She was slouched in her chair at the Oscars, couldn’t even be bothered to sit up straight, looking like she just wanted to book the hell out of there. If she didn’t want to be there, she shouldn’t have gone. If she did want to be there, she should have acted like she wanted to be there, instead of acting like a spoiled, pouty brat with this I’m-too-cool-for-this-shit attitude she puts on. It’s not impressing anybody but her Twihard fans and even some of them are growing tired of her.

      • lady mary. says:

        @ Michele ,i would love to hear your thoughts abt Kstew as a presenter ,was she inefficient or as usual its all in our minds?

      • pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        Everything Kristen does is positive in Annie’s eyes, I guess it balances out the criticisms Kristen receives on here.

    • B says:

      It’s getting very disturbing that a 22 year old women still acts like a rebellious 14 year old. Her parents are solely to blame for her cocky, pretentious attitude. She should learn to be humble esp. since Kristen doesn’t even have any talent to back up that swagger.

      • Annie says:

        They didn’t teach her any manners. The typical parents who believe their kids are geniuses and special and artsy and creative, eventhough they’re nothing great, and so here she is at almost 23, acting like a teen that just discovered Kurt Cobain, with her instagram quotes: “you laugh at me because I’m different, I laugh at you because you’re all the same” but, oh! Spoiler alert: she’s just like every unbearable snot out there and people don’t like because of her bad attitude, not because she’s “different”.
        Everybody wants to be unique. Truth is, we’re all people and everything has been done before. Adults know this. She’s still completely unaware of it.

        Not finding a place where you think you belong is quite sad, and it’s mostly all in your head. She acts like this EVERYWHERE. She’s the problem. Even in pictures with friends she just can’t smile.

      • pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        Whoops, meant to say Michele.

  25. Vanessa says:

    I’m sure she is really shy and it must be difficult for her to present, but unless she has some severe anxiety disorder, that makes her twitch and grunt, she is definitely on drugs. Looks like cocaine to me. I feel bad for her, I think she is very pretty and I don’t get all the hate. Someone mentioned on yesterday’s thread that she is probably in the closet and the stress is taking its toll. I have always thought she was a lesbian. I don’t think her romance is real. Hopefully one day she can come out and be herself.

    • Annie says:

      Right after she came out and presented, Mia Farrow tweeted “You can clearly tell who’s on coke.” She gave that impression to lots of people.

      @Vanessa – You bring up a good point about her possibly being gay and that is creating a lot of stress. I don’t know if she is and I agree with you, I have always thought she might be but that might just be because she looked like one when she cut off her hair to do that gross Runaway movie (it was gross to me because she looked so ugly I couldn’t watch and also I just wasn’t interested in the story). I had a boss who was gay but pretended like she wasn’t and she was all kinds of crazy and the interesting thing is I was married and had to keep that a secret because I didn’t want her to know since she would think that it would take away from my devotion to the job meaning her so I had to live a lie for 4 years pretending like I was only dating him and that we hadn’t moved in together and that I also hadn’t moved to another city with him. It was so stressful that I nearly had a nervous breakdown. I think in large part because I had to or felt I had to live a lie and it can really mess with you and I think that is one of the reasons she was the way she was as well.

    • MissA says:

      She got caught with a married guy & became a joke in the industry.That’s what taking a toll on her.I don’t believe that she’s gay and her affair with Rupert was 100% real. But even if she were,this is not the time to be stressed about ‘being in closet’ cause she has much better & crucial things to worry about.

  26. RobN says:

    There’s a reason there’s an entire internet meme about comparing Stewart’s face to Grumpy Cat. Her natural expression is dour and unfriendly and she doesn’t seem to see the benefit in trying a little harder when she’s in front of people. Maybe that makes her more real, maybe that just makes her a dour pain in the ass.

  27. Annie says:

    One question though? What is up with the bruises on her arms? They’re at the same level, on each arm, same spot, making me think someone grabbed her strongly by the arms, shook her maybe and left those bruises. Try to take a look at the pictures. That’s what it looks like when someone has been grabbed strongly. Curious how they’re both on the same spot.

    And then there’s the foot injury. Maybe she actually got into a fight…

  28. OhDear says:

    The irony is that she’d get less attention if she’d fake being comfortable on stage.

  29. alison8761 says:

    I bet she felt really awkward being there. In addition to hobbling, she’s just… out of place at the oscars. After the Sanders thing, and just generally being in twilight, if I were her, I’d just would be so uncomfortable around all those celebrities. I’d be thinking “are they judging me? they’re probably like ‘why is SHE here?’ oh god dont look at me”.

  30. MsAubra says:

    I just don’t get this brawd! I get that there are people out there who just don’t feel the need to be “on” or animated all the time, I am that way. But she takes it to a whole other level…

  31. The Original Mia says:

    That’s the closest she’ll ever get to an Oscar. Hope she enjoyed it.

    She should have worn flats, instead of trying one flat shoe/one heel. She should have worn a dress that wasn’t in danger of slipping off her boobs and showing everyone Bella Swan’s nips. She should have stayed home. No one would have missed her.

  32. lucy2 says:

    I can understand not wanting to give up the experience of going and even presenting, but I think the red carpet was a mistake with a foot injury. She should have sat that one out.

  33. Tig says:

    I hope this convinces her and her”team” that such appearances/public speaking should be off her calendar for quite some time.

    As far as “body shaming” or whatever else it’s being called at this moment- news flash- TV is a visual medium- how one looks at one of the most watched events on the planet will be commented on- again, her appearance and presentation were so poor. If her pain level was such that she had to be medicated to that extent- why was she there?

  34. Dani V says:

    This is not complicated but really quite simple. Be respectful and that involves grooming. End of story. Drives me nuts how now the PR team is spinning this.

    If she looks in the mirror and doesn’t recognize the fact that she appears dirty, will I assume she wants it that way. She is a big girl now. Same goes for the attitude, insecurities aside. One can still behave respectfully.

    On the other hand if this is the persona she wants to put out there, just own it and move on. Let the chips fall where they may but stop with the PR crap because is really insults my common sense BS factor.

  35. Thiajoka says:

    Okay, Anne, you’ve got my attention–keep ‘em coming and we’ll try to overlook this Oscar season.

  36. SRobin says:

    Hairstylist? He/She could have at least washed the hair… And at least in my opinion, when you have crouches, wouldn’t it be better to do an up-do?

    I get that Kristen is uncomfortable and looks grumpy because of that, but smiling and looking like you’re interested at a party isn’t the ‘Hollywood game’. It’s common curtesy. People would moan about me if I would go to a work related fancy dinner party with dirty hair and looked like I couldn’t give a rats ass about being there… EVERYTIME!!!

    But nonetheless, my problem with Kristen is that she’s the same on screen. In every role. Uncomfortable lip biter. There’s no range. I’ve seen maybe 4 of her films, one being the first Twilight (urgh), and it’s all the same, really.

  37. WOW says:

    Quvenzhane Wallis a 9 year old child gets called the “C” word (amongst several other horrendous things)for being a Oscar nominated confident person of color. But a grown a$$ 22 year women who helped a 42 year old perv cheat publicly on his wife and kids is a “baby girl & an innocent victim”. Gimme a break!

  38. Happy21 says:

    She’s probably grumpy because she has pretty much nothing in the works. IMDB shows 2 movies in pre-production without even a year and Snow White and the Huntsman 2 announced. That’s not a whole lot. She should have been happy, she may never make it to the Oscars again…

  39. another nina says:

    What’s with this foot cutting, stepping on nails, etc? Did she self-sabotaged so that Charlize would not beat the heck out of crip on crutches?

  40. annamaggie says:

    I just watched a video of her presenting. Regardless of how injured her leg is, she was blatantly unprofessional. The hair is one issue, and it may/may not be clean (my bet is that it’s grease central), but there’s more to this than that. During the presentation, she wasn’t ready on cue. She didn’t make an effort to fake being at ease, and because of this she’s getting bucketloads of attention. I mean she was injured, grumpy… whatever. They’re more excuses for her behaviour. I felt sorry for Daniel Radcliffe. I’m 20 and I’d be embarrassed to have behaved like that and have people talking about me the way people are talking about her. She should have had the balls to cancel.

    Ridiculous decision to ask her to present, and I’m in the demographic they were targeting by asking her. She was the reason that I didn’t watch the broadcast on RTE (I’m Irish). I used to love her and now I can’t wait for her to just man up and decide that her current job (or lack of them) isn’t for her.

  41. Moore says:

    If she canceled we would all insult her for that.

  42. Tig says:

    Her canceling would have criticized to some extent- but no where near what this train wreck has turned out to be. Brings to mind the old quote” better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt”.

    To give credit where credit is due- she can pull off RC outfits- exc the BD 2 horror shows. Whoever styled her for the VF story last spring ( I think it was then) should be brought back)- she looked amazing in the gowns. Yes, I know they were airbrushed etc but the styles and colors really worked on her .

  43. taxi says:

    She limped across the stage, slow to get to the podium, and was fumbly-awkward with the prompter. She probably thought she could do the gig & didn’t want to bail. Hobbling on the carpet, the foot pain got worse & she may have popped a pain pill in the Green Room.

    Pain pill+probably empty stomach+sore foot+ nerves=poor showing at the mike. Better if she’d canceled but I’ll cut her some slack & I’m no Twilight fan. She was rubbing her hands standing next to Daniel – crutch cramps? I’ve had them.

  44. Amory says:

    Do we really need to make so many excuses for someone who couldn’t articulate and show a little enthusiasm for a whole 90 seconds on stage? Do we really expect so little of people?

    I don’t care that much about the outfit, but I do think that committing to walk the red carpet at the Oscars means committing to a tailor at the very least. This show is supposed to show Hollywood at its best – it’s worth a little effort. She also had the choice to skip the red carpet (Jennifer Aniston did a few years ago).

  45. Elizabeth says:

    Haha imagine what the vultures would say if she didn’t turn up.

    “Kristen Stewart was scheduled to present an award but pulled out at the last minute. Can’t face Hollywood because of her disgusting whorish behaviour? Most likely.”

    She showed up to fulfil her promised duties. What does it matter if she doesn’t look her best?

    • pastyousayyouneverknew says:

      It matters because she was at the Oscars aka the biggest night in the movie industry. You don’t seem to understand that the majority of the criticism on here is not her “whorish” behaviour – Hollywood is not about sainthood. Her dress was ill-fitted, her hair is quite frankly messy, it was painful to watch her present, in her chair, she looked like she’d rather be doing a million other things, in close-up pictures, she had bags under her eyes, the girl needed a good nights worth of rest, not to be at the Oscars and give ammo to those who don’t like her. All you need to do to gauge the general publics reaction to kristen is to look at twitter – tweets mocking her got 100+ retweets, very few people think the night was good for her overall, I’m not a fan but I think she keeps giving people excuses to mock her.

      • lexy says:

        Actually it seems you do not understand. People flat out hate this girl and will use any excuse to hate her.

        If she turned up looking amazing people would criticise saying she was stealing spotlight from the stars and that the night ‘isn’t all about her’. She would be ‘rubbing it in Liberty’s face’, no doubt.

        This girl has been ganged up on enough. Perhaps if you stop paying her so much attention, she won’t annoy you so much. If you don’t like her, ignore her and say nothing.

      • pastyousayyouneverknew says:

        @Lexy sorry I never received a memo saying that you were the Internet police. Celebitchy is open to members of the public to voice their opinions, your disagreeing with my opinion doesn’t make it invalid neither does it mean that I should refrain from voicing it. My comments were criticisms, not personal attacks on her.

        For the record, if she came to the Oscars looking her best, if she had presented better, then the hate would be just that – hate. But as that was not the case, people have valid reasons behind their criticisms.

        If people hate her, that’s not my fault either, I agree that there is something about her that has always aroused dislike but don’t go around telling people what to do. Kristen is an adult in Hollywood, open to public scrutiny and criticism, that’s just the way it is.

      • lexy says:

        Hahaha by saying ‘don’t tell people what to do’ you are doing the exact same thing genius!

  46. OOOOWL says:

    Her hair doesn’t look greasy in that first picture. The problem is that she can’t keep her hands out of it and so she messes up whatever styling that was done.

  47. Katija says:

    I’m surprised that no one has made the connection that there are tons of pics of her drunkenly running around LA with her hipster friends on Saturday night like she was auditioning to be a Kesha backup dancer.

    Homegirl brought this on herself with poor life choices. Tsk.

  48. Bored suburbanhousewife says:

    I just don’t get it. She could look beautiful and classy with the right styling. I recall a photo shoot she did with RP in a very high glamour, Old Hollywood style. Her hair was gleaming shiny shampoo ad hair. Simple well cut stunning gown. Surely a stylist could replicate this for an Oscar appearance? If I were KS, I would dress and style just that way to totally make my critics eat shit. Instead she seems to go out of her way with the naked dresses & dirty messy hair to validate the stereotype.

    Also do not think manners were emphasized in her home growing up, judging by the parents personal style.

  49. Tansey says:

    Alright, I’m without a doubt no fan of KS, but the thing is, I think she just has severe social anxiety. I have social anxiety. It sucks. It sucks so hard. Someone with that kind of anxiety constantly thinks everyone around them is judging them and it causes massive insecurity and self consciousness. At one point, it was so bad for me that I’d start to have a panic attack in the checkout line at the grocery store because it felt like everyone was staring at me. At my wedding (we had almost 200 guests), I had to take a shot of vodka before walking down the aisle so I wouldn’t panic with all those eyes on me, and as soon as we got to the reception I went straight for the bar just so I’d be loosened up enough to talk to our wedding guests. I let my SA go untreated for a long time and I regret it.

    My point is, when I see KS interacting with people for interviews or whatever, I empathize, because I know just how uncomfortable she is. I’ve no doubt she’s grateful for her success, she just doesn’t know how to show that gratitude appropriately.

    • Elsie says:

      You would think she would have mentioned it somewhere between her lack of an “emotional toolbox” and her wanting something bad to happen to her too perfect life. It’s been what, 5 years of the Twilight press train and she never once explicitly said those words nor did her PR share that information (if camp Kristen isn’t saying it how can we?). In my opinion it’s not a fair leap to make…as to how to express gratitude…it’s just as easy as dropping an F bomb. Simply: “I’m grateful” no pomp or flourishes, two words, no eye roll, not hard. No one is asking her to explain the duality of light or anything it’s not hard to express gratitude. Generally if you feel it, it shows, there really isn’t a look of gratitude more of exuding a feeling which is innate. Even I think she is more than capable of doing so, in fact she has when she wanted to.

    • boredsuburbanhousewife says:

      I have a child with bad social anxiety and I sympathize with your struggles. But I am betting at your wedding and when you went out in public “on display” you went out of your way to groom yourself and look as impeccable as possible so as to avoid the possibility of people whispering about you. She seems to go out of her way to invite exactly the kind of scrutiny you rightly feared.

      • G says:

        Tansey, YOU may have a social anxiety disorder( and thank you for sharing your point of view)

        KRISTEN is paid double digit millions to perform. To look nice, speak nicely, get along with her colleagues and promote her films/business. Save your sympathy.

    • CC says:

      in her profession, dealing with people isn’t a “surplus to requirements”, she needs to shape up or a new job. Or she can simply retire from public life, she can afford it, she has enough cash.

  50. Sandy Pandy says:

    Her dress was a crappy fit and I imagine she was nervous about facing the biggest night in H’wood with the stain of sleeping with her director and causing that havoc. She’s a yawn in my books. Too old for teenage angst.

  51. Ginger says:

    I just want to jump her with a can of dry shampoo!

  52. CAM says:

    Why didn’t she cancel? Why did she insist on wearing heels even though you could barely see them under her dress? She wanted attention. Simple as that.

  53. Melons says:

    After skimming through all the comments, I felt the need to put in my 2 cents. I am not a huge fan of Kristen Stewart’s, I have seen a few of her movies and thought she was good in them. At 22, I can’t imagine dealing with all the vitriol directed at her. She expressed that she wasn’t fake and was maybe more mature than most her age. But, who doesn’t think that of themselves at 22? Yes, she made a huge error in judgment that unfortunately hurt a lot of people, but I feel as if these comments have moved past criticism into bullying. Also, how different would we see this if it had been a male that did the same thing? I thought we were better than this.

    • El says:

      Are you really citing feminist theory right now because really it’s inappropriate to use that defense unless you KNOW what you’re talking about. SO please continue…if a man in his early twenties of arguably ill-repute (affair with his married female director and a long standing history of being surly,pretentious, ungrateful and unprofessional) showed up to the Oscars hobbling, disheveled and seemingly under the influence our reaction would be…

    • LOL says:

      All the Kstew supporters seem to start of with “i’m not a Kristen fan BUT….(essay on how Kristen is misunderstood little creature).

    • Melons says:

      Even the worst male actors in Hollywood with the worst reputations don’t have to deal with these types of personal attacks. Do I think she is suited for fame? That’s not really my choice to make. But I won’t sit here and spew hate at her. I’m not interested in seeing any of her recent movies and I don’t know if that will ever change but if you hate someone so much why bother with them. And to your comment about feminist theory, you have no idea how educated I am, please don’t assume I am some idiot behind a keyboard. I can assure you, I’m not.

      • El says:

        I never called you an idiot or questioned your education, I invited you to expand on THIS specific topic: feminist theory because YOU opened the door to the questioning and didn’t explain your rationale. Don’t hide behind what you think I may or may not be implying because I said exactly what I meant. Tell me the basis that supports a gender based defense and we can either agree or disagree plain and simple. Don’t cite something (that is notoriously misquoted and convoluted) and then tell me I’m insulting your intelligence when I ask you to explain.

  54. Quniten says:

    Not a fan but I don’t get all this hatred for Kristen Stewert.
    Her peer Jennifer Lawrence might have won an Oscar but she is not anymore or less mature, talented then her.
    I’m sure that Weinstien could buy Kristen an Oscar like he did with Jennifer. I think their acting is on the same level.
    The Oscars have lost their touch a long time ago.

  55. d says:

    I am wondering if Kristin is contractually obligated to attend these sorts of functions, to keep up publicity for these films, and that may be a source of additional stress for her. I go back and forth on whether to believe she’s got social anxiety; maybe she does, but is handling it badly, or she doesn’t and it’s just…immaturity?
    Anyway, I sort of think this situation is like Lindsey’s now in that no matter what anyone says, no matter how good or right the things people say about professionalism, etc., etc., ain’t none of it going to matter because it pretty much looks like Kristin’s gonna do what Kristin’s gonna do, so it’s really just a waste of time at this point.

  56. LisaMarie says:

    Meh, it makes sense why she showed. The Twilight films are done and her star is falling. She may be angsty, she may act like she’s above it all, but girl doesn’t want to have to get a 9 to 5 job so likely she knows she has no choice. At this point in her career, she needs to be visible.

    Having said that, though, I doubt it’ll work.

  57. leslie says:

    When she walked out on stage, it reminded me of the cashier dragging herself to work in the final scenes of the movie Go.
    I was shocked by how disheveled Kristen looked. I figured she just had a huge bong hit, a few shots and a massive f-ck before presenting.
    Now that really think of it, maybe she has anxiety issues.

  58. Andrea says:

    My dad usually doesn’t mention anything about celebritys, but he did mention how he thought her eyes looked dead all the time.

  59. CC says:

    Read on E! that she was wearing a flat and a high heel shoe. What kind of insane person does that, unless vying for extra attention? It’s actually dangerous, you can break something doing that.

    You’re injured, you wear flats, especially considering her past history with sneakers on red, and the fact that the flat in question was a ballerina-type shoe, which is completely discrete, it’s still a shoe and far better than her past options to begin with.

    In any case it just reinforces my “crutches were for attention” theory. Or that she’s completely insane. Or both.

  60. Oscars says:

    Why would she wear super high heels & flats together? Would you not need to use your crutches everywhere if the injury was severe? She just wanted attention as always, all for herself. At this point I think she has substance abuse issues. This kind of strange love with the camera aka Lindsay & Amanda & now Kristen is not the typical starlet attention seeking ways.

  61. LeeLoo says:

    I sense Kristen being somewhere between a Britney Spears (in that I think she has some legit mental health issues) and between a Lindsay Lohan (in that she got a pretty heavy narcissistic streak). But I don’t think her actual career in Hollywood will last a whole lot longer. Rob is to Kstew what Justin was to Britney and I think part of the reason for her poor appearance at the Oscars was due to issues (or breakup) with Rob. This chick has never been able to hide her emotions (reason # 2,300,754,693 this girl is a terrible actress) very well so it makes sense she’s having boy problems along with being hung over or coked up or whatever was wrong with her. Notice how there’s been radio silence from Rob? The only reason this girl still has a career is because her PR team somehow makes her seem awesome. If she had half the talent her PR team has, then I don’t think this would be a big deal.

    Sunday signaled the end of Kristen Stewart’s acting career. Every major player in Hollywood was there and saw her behavior. Every job that could have been offered to her will now be going to Jennifer Lawrence or someone who is willing to promote the movie with a fake smile on their face.

    Who wants to bet whatever weed Kristen smokes that Snow White 2 will be canceled before blockbuster season starts?

  62. TG says:

    Since she is such a pot smoker and everyone thinks she is so nervous and has social anxiety than why isn’t she lighting up before an appearance? Wouldn’t that take the edge off? She always looks half stoned anyway so not sure what is going on.

    I too agree @LeeLoo that she was such a mess on Sunday because Rob dumped her or something like that. I think she was desperate for attention, but everyone yelled at me for that. It might just be as you said that she is just a mess because of her personal life and not that she was trying to get attention. I can just see her injuring herself so that Rob’s protective insticts would kick in and jump on a plane to take care of her or something like that.

  63. Shani says:

    All I can say is that if this is her a mess I am very jealous. When I’m a mess it’s nowhere near as presentable as this. Seriously people? Wouldn’t we all like to look like this on a bad day?
