Kristen Stewart never has to ‘beg’: ‘I can get any role with a snap of my fingers’

kristen3

As I discussed briefly yesterday, Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart cover the German edition of Interview magazine (the September issue). They’re promoting Clouds of Sils Maria and the “interview” is pretty much a discussion between the two women, with no formal interviewer or anything. The Kristen fanatics finally managed to do a decent translation of the piece and I couldn’t even get through it because there was so much awkwardness and ass-kissing. You can read the full piece here. We got a tip about one part of their exchange where it seems like Kristen is bragging about where she is in her career and how she could get any part she wanted:

Juliette: I find it funny that people think strong feelings can be overcome while you’re doing only art-house movies. Of course, give me the freedom, and I’d do art-house only. But the success of these movies is an incredible luck. So you have to learn how to juggle, to experience the whole range of feelings in every movie.

Kristen: I also hate when people say, one role for yourself, one – for audience. Bulls–t.

J: I agree.

K: Everything I do, I do for myself. Blockbuster, art-house or Chanel commercial – it doesn’t matter. It could seem that after a successful movie I can allow myself anything. And you know what? I can! It’s incredible: I can do anything I f–king want. Yes, I’m in this unconscionably privileged position. And I’m not ashamed.

J: Good.

K: I never have to beg for a role, I can get any role with a snap of my fingers, and I don’t have to fight and struggle on my way up, like some other actors. I imagine a huge map with lots of streets and roads, and the only thing I have to do – is choose, where do I want to stay. Every door is open for me. I had a conscienceless amount of luck in my life. And it’s enough to understand: I love to play in blockbusters because I know, everyone’d watch them, they attract people, they’re easy to take and they’re enjoyable.

Granted, this is a translation so maybe there’s a tonal issue that we’re missing, but I believe this translation is probably pretty accurate. I think Kristen said this or something close to it. I think she was attempting to acknowledge that she doesn’t have to struggle and bust her ass like so many of the actresses in her age bracket. I think she was trying to own her elevated place in the Hollywood food chain. But I also think she’s wrong – her career took a major hit after her affair with Rupert Sanders and she’s only crawling out of that scandal now, two years later. I also think that while she’ll always be rich and famous, she’ll never be a top-tier Oscar-winner and respected and beloved actress like, say, Jennifer Lawrence. There are lots of scripts that J-Law gets that Kristen will never see, you know?

    Wow. Zero talent and no class. Get some humility.

  2. AuroraO says:

    But what if a role *doesn’t* call for a wooden hipster?

  3. Leaflet says:

    Arrogance comes before a great fall.

  4. bettyrose says:

    Meryl Streep better watch out. This pint sized whirlwind of talent is coming to take all the good arthouse roles.

  5. Lara K says:

    Well at least her ego is still strong…
    I honestly don’t see her ever reaching her Twilight fame again. She is just not that good an actress.

    Throw in her wooden personality, and it’s a total non starter.

  6. msw says:

    Lol. Whatever you say, kstew. She doesn’t have any depth as an actress. Most decent films are far out of her reach. Even if she got the roles, she would be awful.

  7. FingerBinger says:

    Kristen’s reputation took a major hit after the Rupert Sanders scandal. Her career has stayed intact. She’s done movies during,since and after the scandal.

  8. Ash says:

    You have one facial expression! How does she get cast in movies, she can’t act to save her life, how do talentles people that aren’t even gorgeous get parts? I could understand if, say she was drop dead gorgeous and couldn’t act, because then there’s eye candy for people to look at.

    She sounds like a total witch in this interview. Sorry, if I came off rudely, I think I just got set off by how pretentious he sounds.

  9. Dani2 says:

    If this was Jennifer Lawrence, I’d almost have to agree that this statement is valid but Kristen is just not at the level that she thinks she is, she is one of the many young actresses with several critically acclaimed indies to her name. I was beginning to like her again but I just can’t with the inexplicable arrogance. She’s not the most coveted anything in Hollywood.

  10. An says:

    Aaaaaaaaaaand we’re back to being over you, K-Stew.

  11. Janet says:

    She would benefit a great deal from a back-handed slap in the mouth. Who in hell does she think she is?

  12. bella says:

    this can’t be true.
    i know that she is an arrogant little twit…but would she really say such things?
    i need more before i believe this.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yeah…it was translated so I think what she *may* have said is that she has a lot of opportunities and that she gets a lot of offers for roles (probably crappy ones).

      I hate that I just defended her but with her image-problems, it’s hard for me to accept that she would say something this arrogant. Unless she really is that dumb.

      On a nicer note, that pic of her and Binoche is just gorgeous.

      • T.C. says:

        I don’t trust translated interviews either but this was translated by her adorning fan site so I would think they wouldn’t want her to come off poorly. On the other hand, they might think it makes her seem like a Boss and go for it. Maybe she meant she can get roles in any genre without having to audition. I will wait for more info because I know she tried really hard for that “Lie Down in Darkness” film. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/celebritology/post/kristen-stewart-not-yet-cast-in-lie-down-in-darkness/2012/08/02/gJQARscBTX_blog.html

        Both twilight actors are bad at interviews anyway. Kstew usually says ignorant things while Sparkles lies and bullshits through most of his.

      • Jane says:

        LMAO, as if her psycho stans would do anything to make her seem worse.

      • Redirected says:

        I got curious and checked the original – yeah, the translation is accurate.

      • Petrichor says:

        I’m assuming the original is printed in Interview in German? If so, wouldn’t that already be a translation? Am I wrong to assume that the interview was originally conducted in English? So now we’re twice removed from her original words. What’s on the fan site is a translation of a translation.

        I’m no Kristen apologist, but it seems to me that there’s an awful lot of room for (mis)representation of her words. That said, what’s printed in this article jives with my impression of her.

      • jwoolman says:

        I’m a translator and I wouldn’t trust that translation of a translation myself. Getting the tone right is very difficult, that’s why people can make a living as translators…

        It was obviously translated by someone who can read both languages but is not a skilled translator. I can’t do chatty general translation myself- I am only competent in certain scientific areas because I’m a scientist. One client insisted that I translate a three-sentence letter in the middle of a clinical trial project even though I told him how incompetent I was for that (“pleeeese, we need it tomorrow and nobody else is available and you know all about the project and…”). It took me huge gobs of time and I still had to tell the agency that they absolutely had to run it past a native Italian speaker, because in the last sentence I couldn’t tell if the writer was threatening to call the cops on the recipient or if he was just joking around…. Really! That kind of translation requires someone basically bicultural or wars can start from mistranslation. I am bicultural only in the laboratory in my fields, that’s why I can translate scientific papers.

        A good example of the problem is the “we will bury you” translation of something Khrushchev said to the US. Americans interpreted that as an active threat. Actually, he was using a proverb with the meaning that the speaker would outlive the other person, that he would come to the other person’s funeral. It wasn’t a threat to do harm, but just expressed his belief that his system would last longer. But that poor choice of a translation (so open to misinterpretation) was used repeatedly to justify the Cold War and a lot of little hot ones as well as the ever-increasing military budget that now is larger than the sum total of the military budgets of everybody else in the world, continuing to drain our own economy long after the “other side” lost interest in the international game of chicken we were all playing.

    • Rice says:

      Whew! I though I was the only one. I don’t trust translations because you never get the full tone. of the interview.

    • Jenny12 says:

      I thought the exact same thing. She’s so arrogant that it sounds just like her.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Ha! Wouldn’t surprise me at all.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      That makes sense. I don’t like her, but I didn’t think she would say that straight up.

    • Anname says:

      I think she would totally say something like this and it’s why I have grown to dislike her. With all her recent interviews you can see the ego growing – this comment is not like something out of the blue for her. Her arrogance and conceit are ringing quite loudly here. It’s the same problem Lainey called her out for – entitlement and thinking she is above everyone else.
      I can’t enjoy her onscreen anymore because of her personality – it just bleeds through everything she does for me now.

    • Illyra says:

      I was going to say this, and was hoping someone else would have said it already too. She is VERY sarcastic.

    • Luciana says:

      I’m not really sure if Kristen knows what sarcasm is…

    • Dolce crema says:

      That makes more sense!

  13. Brin says:

    With a winning personality like that, of course she doesn’t have to beg for roles.

  14. Jaderu says:

    I’m gonna give her the benefit of the doubt because I’ve read translated interviews or articles that sound like a stoned person wrote them.
    I just defended The Stew. That was my good deed for the week. *clappity clappity clappity*

    • mimi says:

      @Jaderu

      That’s why I prefer audio interviews. Translated interviews are sketchy at times and we don’t know the tone or if comments have been taken out of context. I’ve seen quotes attached to completely made up questions to sensationalize an otherwise unremarkable interview or to help create an agenda.

    • maybeiamcrazy says:

      I will too. Because she sounds extremely arrogant but she continuously acknowledges her privilege. I really believe something got lost in translation.

      • Jane says:

        But she is extremely arrogant, always has been. She can’t stop bragging how amazing her life is while whining about haters. She said just months before the scandal she wants something bad to happen to her because he life is too good.

      • maybeiamcrazy says:

        Admittedly I am not a KStew follower so I may be off the base. But the tone changes throughout the same paragraph. First she acknowledges her privilege and luck then she says “I can get any role with a snap of my fingers” after that she acknowledges strugling actors and how lucky she is that she found her place in Hollywood. If I cared enough, I would find the original one and read it but honestly, I don’t. At all. Not that you’d guess while reading it. Quite opposite it reads as if I care too much. :)

        Edit: Oops. Obviously I care enough because I clicked the link and turns out it is not German. I though it was because article says it is German edition.

      • FLORC says:

        Jane
        I think that’s reading too much into a statement made with no real direction. She says things like that all the time. Most of us do and don’t realize it. It’s not meant in a literal manner.

      • mimi says:

        I think she tries to own up to the great life she has by admitting it in interviews but her awkward way of conveying her thoughts aloud gets her in trouble. Some stars try to downplay their food fortune via self deprecation but Kristen admits she has a very good life with many opportunities and priviledges most actresses her age do not have. It’s the way she tries to express those feelings that end up sometimes sounding arrogant and boastful. She also has a very dry, sarcastic sense of humor that is lost on many. I think alot of her comments are taken too literally.

      • cyndi says:

        @mimi, @jwoolman, @maybeiamcrazy–
        Thank you! Exactly what i was going to say, you have saved my poor, arthritic hands from having to! 😝
        I think a lot of people just want to believe she’d say something like that and use it to kick at her once again without verification of what she “actually” said. 😓

  15. K says:

    Wow, some people never learn. Tired of this talentless, arrogant wannabe.

  16. Abbott says:

    I can’t stand the open-mouth posing. There are ways to relax your mouth without looking like a lobotomized dragon with sleep apnea. No offense to dragons with sleep apnea.

  17. Marty says:

    Wow. Kristen, please go find some chill. ASAP!

  18. winosaurusrex says:

    why do half of all Kristen photos look up her nose? that is just not pretty.

  19. Nick says:

    Much ado over nothing it seems. I don’t see arrogant at all. A little bragging but if that’s the reality then why is it so bad? Regardless how people feel about her acting she gets roles, as a matter of fact she’s been working back to back.

    I’m curious to see her performance in this film, every review I’ve read has singled her out as being a standout.

  20. InvaderTak says:

    Wonder how long ot will take before someone jumps on this and cries about it being a bad translation? Why is it translated anyway? K-stew only speaks one language right? Theres no original?

    • Wren33 says:

      Well, I imagine that the interview was in English, it got translated into German for the magazine, and now is being translated back from the German text in the magazine. So it has been translated twice. So, something like “snap her fingers” may not have been what she actually said, and it is mostly the tone of how she explained that she doesn’t have to hustle for roles and lot is offered to her that people are objecting to. She may have said exactly that, but translations can lose a lot of nuance.

  21. Algernon says:

    ” I also think that while she’ll always be rich and famous, she’ll never be a top-tier Oscar-winner and respected and beloved actress like, say, Jennifer Lawrence. There are lots of scripts that J-Law gets that Kristen will never see, you know?”

    I agree, mostly. Famew-wise, I think she’s hit a level that never really goes away, so she’s fine there. She can’t really get any more famous than she already is. And she’ll never be adored like JLaw, and I do think JLaw probably sees a lot of scripts Kristen doesn’t…but that’s because they’re two totally different actresses. I can’t think of many instances where they’d be up for the same things, now that they’re both established. I think Kristen’s competition is more like, Carey Mulligan, Mia Wasikowska, people like that. JLaw is on another plane, consistently playing older characters and actively taking roles from older actresses, while Kristen is still very much playing young women of a certain type. Will she grow beyond that? Who knows, but JLaw already has, so I don’t see them as being in direct competition. I know people like to pit women against each other, but if you step back and look at it as boxes of cereal on a shelf, JLaw is like Honey Nut Cheerios. She’s kind of good for you but also kind of sugary and who doesn’t like Honey Nut Cheerios? Honey Nut Cheerios go with everything. Kristen is like Cocoa Puffs. It’s a particular taste, not everyone has it, but it’s there for the people who like it.

    Also, I think she said it poorly (when isn’t that a problem with KStew?) but I do get what she means. Kristen has proven she can work in blockbusters and indie fare, and she’s one of the few people who can slide between both worlds at will. JLaw can do it, too, Emma Watson can do it, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Emma Stone. There is a point where you no longer have to make decisions based on financial need or career goals, and like her or not, Kristen has reached it.

    ETA: I think on that plane of people who can do whatever type of movie they want, Kristen is probably on the lowest rung. I think Emma Stone and Emma Watson are probably taking more roles from her than JLaw.

    • Jane says:

      She got Twilight due to her Hollywood connections, her than boyfriend recommended her to the director and so it was with every other role. She doesn’t earn it. Then after Twilight they gave her roles hoping those fans would watch her films. Well they don’t.

      • Algernon says:

        I’m not talking about how she got jobs, or any of that. I’m just talking about where she is right now, which is the sweet spot every actor dreams of being in: able to take jobs regardless of money or scale of production.

        Tangentially related, everyone assumed she was cut from the Snow White prequel thingie because of The Scandal, but I wonder if it was at least in part because they figured they could continue making movies in that universe but didn’t really need Snow White. You know? Like, enough people saw #1 to justify #2, but we maybe don’t need the name we thought we needed. Snow White & The Huntsman was not a box office smash. It just barely eeked by acceptable blockbuster standards.

    • Marigold says:

      Hasn’t she only worked in the one blockbuster (I’m not counting Snow White as a blockbuster-maybe 1/2 a blockbuster)? I mean, she was sort of guaranteed the next film in the series by virtue of being in the one before it (and that didn’t end up being the case with Snow White). I wouldn’t call that going back and forth. I think since doing crappy Twilight, she’s done a fair amount of underwhelming indie work offered to her mostly because of name recognition.

    • Lacey says:

      Lainey compares Kristen’s fame to Orly’s. He’ll always be famous, regardless if he works or not. I saw the Crucible recently and thought that Kristen is a lot like Winona Ryder, with weird ticks and a youthful awkwardness she’ll never outgrow. Winona felt very 90s, not buying her in a period piece. Kristen belongs to this decade and she’s got a Winona vibe. Very delicate, very odd. She’ll follow Winona’s career trajectory and eventually become too old to play immature characters.

      • H2O says:

        No comparison. Winona is a consumate actress. Before her downfall she amassed a slew of admired films. Has Kristen ever done anything like The Age of Innocence? Do you think Scorcese will ever seek her out? Just asking.

        PS Winona is getting some work now and is marvelous as always.

  22. serena says:

    There she goes again, spouting the same old BS and alienating everyone against her all over again… She never learns, does she?

  23. Frodo says:

    Did she mean to say the snap of her vadge? She’s not pretty. She has a terrible personality. Terrible character. What’s the appeal?

  24. Hissyfit says:

    Girl, NO! Nice try though. Lol.

  25. Cali says:

    Her success with Twilight had absolutely zero to do with her. Nada. The fans would’ve equally rallied around ANY actress who was in the role. They loved the books and the characters so vehemently and that just extended to those particular actors for that reason and that reason ALONE. I was “there” in the thick of the Twilight moms, the Twilight fangirls, etc. back when it was very “organic” and just getting started and before it blew up into the crazy thing it became. So, I do have really strong feelings about it, apparently. LOL

    It baffles me that directors, producers, etc think that she’s worthy of these huge paychecks and roles. She’s had maybe two roles where Kristen disappeared and a character emerged. Everything else so far has just been Kristen acting like Kristen, dressing like Kristen, and so on. I hate to be such a hater but there are so many talented actresses out there who could do better.

    I feel very similar about Rob and Taylor Lautner. I blame it on Catherine Hardwick for casting them. I’ve tried and tried to love their work but it’s just not good. My God, the TV actors on The Vampire Diaries can act circles around the entire Twilight cast (well, almost the entire cast – a few were great). I’d love to see the TVD writers, actors and directors do a remake of Twilight and see how amazing it COULD HAVE been! ;)

    • alex_r says:

      How amazing can it be given how juvenile and misogynistic the source material is?

    • Laura says:

      Hi Cali, I agree to most of what u said. The only one of the 3 main characters in twilight that has talent is Robert, and he is proving that, he has the best reviews in his last movies, specially in “the Rover”, maybe won’t be easy to get rid of the ‘vampire’ thing but I think he can prove that he is better than that.
      Anyway, I would like to add that Kristen always was an arrogant brat.

      • mimi says:

        Yes, let’s just conveniently forget all the wonderful reviews Kristen has received for Camp X-Ray and Sils Maria. While Rob is being praised for his work in THe Rover, Kristen is receiving similar praise for Sils Maria. Both Rob and Kristen are said to have given their best performances to date with The Rover and Sils Maria. And both have also had box office disappointments post Twilight as well. Welcome to the world of independent films.

    • mimi says:

      The success of Twilight is due to the insane chemistry between Kristen and Robert. Period. The first Twilight film was initially an indie with a very limited budget. Everybody from director Catherine Hardwicke to the producers to Kristen and Rob and the rest of the cast have always maintained in interviews that nobody involved with the first film ever predicted the mega success that the first Twilight movie became.

  26. mkyarwood says:

    This is her mother talking. Her career is more momagered than it seems.

  27. Mia4S says:

    Whoa! I hope this is a translation problem. She cannot be that dumb! Can she?

    Or she’s just so desperately insecure this is what she has to tell herself?

  28. meh says:

    Same girl who screamed at papz that they can’t breathe the same air as her, so not surprised.

  29. talia says:

    I don’t think she said it like that…
    I even think about buying the magazine to read it myself…
    If i do, I will let you know ;)

  30. Jaded says:

    I’m surprised Juliette Binoche didn’t get up shaking her head in artsy bemusement and walk out of the interview.

  31. FreeSpiritedGirl says:

    Yeah, I believe your words, KScrew. Snap your finger s for the next director in waiting, bang him and get the job.

  32. Cara says:

    At heart she’s just not a likeable person. Everything she says comes off arrogant and smug. She seems to have no one in her life that brings her back to earth and reminds her that her job is extremely unimportant in the grand scheme of things. And she’s also convinced herself that she’s an artiste who would never sell out despite doing so over and over again.

    I disagree that she was hurt by the scandal though. If anything that made her fans/Hollywood rally around her like the ultimate victim. What keeps her below the JLaws, Emma Stones, Rooney Maras, is her extremely limited range and unappealing presence. She’d be in this same position whether she got caught cheating or not.

    • Ll says:

      Agree. I also think that no one *wants* to see anything she’s in but do when it’s a built-in succes with more prominent actors or an already established fanbase, like a blockbuster – and that is definetely not thanks to her being in the movie. She really just can’t act.

      • mimi says:

        @LI

        What’s Robert Pattinson’s excuse for nobody wanting to see his films then? He’s one of the most likable and charming actors out there and yet his films bomb at the box office just as much as Kristen’s. Rob’s Cosmopolis, Bel Ami, and The Rover did no better than Kristen’s On The Road and The Runaways. Since Camp X-Ray and Sils Maria haven’t been released yet, we’ll have to wait and see how well they do in the theaters. Since both are small indies lacking in broard audience appeal, I don’t have high hopes that either will break indie box office records. And I’m a big fan of both!

    • Sunny says:

      I agree. I think she has an incredible face and has shown some talent but she is very unappealing, tone deaf, rude, and out of touch. That will keep her career at a certain level.

      I don’t think she has the talent that Mia and JLaw show.

    • lia says:

      Cara, I agree. Kristen is a VERY polarizing actress. She keeps chasing this Oscar dream, but it may never happen, at least not right now. Mia dropped out of Sils Maria and Jennifer turned down the lead in Equals. That’s how she got those jobs. I believe she also knows the producers from both projects. Interestingly enough, Jennifer recommended Amanda Seyfried to the producers for the lead. This particular project feels like stunt-casting. Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart in a film all about feels? I don’t get it.

      • @lia says:

        Please provide a source for where you read about Jen recommending Amanda Seyfried for the part. I haven’t seen that everywhere and I have read a ton on Equals. As for Clouds of Sils Maria, the role was offered to Kristen, who couldn’t do it because of scheduling, presumably because at the time she was attached to Focus. So then it was offered to Mia W., who signed on. Mia then dropped because it was thought that Alice in Wonderland was going to film at the time. So they went back to Kristen and the scheduling worked.

      • double says:

        I’m sick of hearing the Kristen was offered it first thing. What was the director going to say? “I really wanted someone else but they quit so I had to go with Kristen.”? These “we wanted them all along” statements happen all the time when an actor drops a movie. Most who follow film know what it means.

      • RPG says:

        Assayas said himself that the character Kristen plays in Sils was created for Mia. Can’t get any better than right from the horse’s mouth.

      • MaddieH says:

        @lia here, for example: http://www.vulture.com/2013/11/this-week-in-jennifer-lawrence-quotes-returns.html

        “Just recently, I read a script that had me sobbing. I’ve never been so moved by a story, and I thought it was so beautiful and amazing, and I just couldn’t wait for this script to get made so that the world could see it … but I just wasn’t her, I just wasn’t the character. And I also had an experience once where I read the script, and I loved it, but I couldn’t stop picturing Amanda Seyfried. So I e-mailed the people [behind the movie] and said, ‘You gotta hire Amanda Seyfried for this!’”

  33. Jess says:

    #1 Translations are always iffy.

    #2 She clearly acknowledges her good luck in all this. What’s wrong with recognizing that she has it easy, which she does? She’s spent the last year+ filming movie after movie. She’s recognizing that she has many choices in front of her and knows she is lucky that she doesn’t have to go on audition after audition like many other actresses her age she knows. Maybe her career took a hit, but she is still in a far better situation than others and she is now on the rebound. I know a lot of people want to think she has nothing ahead of her, but with the way she is going it seems that offers are still coming in. She doesn’t have to say that she auditions for roles if she doesn’t actually have to do that.

  34. Lola says:

    I am not a fan of hers, so I have not seen all of her movies. But, for me, she seems to play the exact same character in every single movie that I have seen of hers. And (if the translation is correct) the work comes to her? I don’t get it. Does she sell tickets automatically? …. all the R Pat fans go see her movies to bi/tch slap her performance, sort to speak? or more like ensemble projects were she is not the lead, cause God that Snow White & The Huntsman performance of hers was awful…

  35. Jenny12 says:

    Same arrogant crap as ever. Making excuses for doing things that are deemed sellouts, feeling smug about the indies, showing off and being entitled…. nothing new here. Really wishing this chick would fade into oblivion. This attitude says everything about her cheating on Pattinson and not caring how she affected Liberty and the kids- what I want, when I want it, I deserve it. And while Rupert is a total POS who got what he deserved, you just look at the photos and see he worshiped her and Kristen was completely disengaged. Sometimes I wonder if she set them up (look how close and clear they are) just to passively have an end to her relationship with Pattinson. She sees herself as in the same league as Binoche or Blanchett, and she’s the only one who thinks so.

  36. nora says:

    The film opens this week in France and all critical I mean all the reviews are rave, so may be that this girl has a head slaps but the french journalists who meet about a young and talented woman interressante; may be I’m wrong but I feel that it starts to make a long career with interressants and demanding films. (I specify that I have not seen twilight is not my genre)
    It’s funny for me to read the difference that there is between our countries in the image we have of certain celebrities

  37. may23 says:

    Not sure about ANY role… I doubt she’s being offered real serious roles. She is a bankable actress but that doesn’t meant she is a serious one. If she’s smart and careful, she will built it up to where she REALLY can pick any role. Like JLaw or Dicaprio. But not yet.

  38. Sally says:

    The thing that kills me the most is that I’m sure Kristen is getting better and more scripts that Lupita.

    • K says:

      Hollywood is racist and will be for a loooooong time, IF they ever change at all. It’s disgusting. As long as you’re white and skinny you will always get roles before a women who is the epitomy of talent because she isn’t the “right” color. If Lupita was white she would be getting roles, endorsements, magazine covers etc. thrown at her but she isn’t so she has to struggle to find any decent work or create roles for herself – and people saying she “just needs to get a job” obviously don’t understand that.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      This is the truth. The sad, terrible truth.

    • Dani2 says:

      That is actually something I’m offended by. Not Kristen or any of the other white actresses, just the institutionalised racism in Hollywood. I can also say without a shadow of a doubt that had Kristen been a woman of colour, she wouldn’t have been able to bounce back from the cheating scandal.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      What fictitious scripts are your speaking of? Forget the racism, let’s talk sexism, where are the female driven scripts? No where. Yes, by all means, give the best scripts to the Lupita’s rather than the Kristin’s but can we please get something better than Twilight or all these other weak ass schmaltzy male-driven sap fests?

      • Ll says:

        LOL. So just because racism doesn’t apply to you we should just forget it? Uh, bye. How many movies this year have you seen prominently futuring black, asian or native american actors? Close to none. These things are both important but if you’re going to look out for yourself and causes that only affect you, you’ll have a hard time finding support.

    • snowflake says:

      tbh, i didn;t think lupita was that great of actress. decent,yes, but I feel the gravity and greatness of the rest of the movie just happened to involve her, and she was the lucky beneficiary. there were other actors who i felt were more compelling in their performances. like the leo and the guy you call fassy.

      • Elyse says:

        Let me tell you everything wrong with you’re comment.
        1. Lupita has just started out acting in Hollywood.
        2. She can’t be considered a lucky beneficiary because she actually had to work to get in the movie, she couldn’t really rely on her looks and her Hollywood influence to get her noticed (even though she is beautiful and has a successful family)
        3. Actors and actresses aren’t even on the same caliber because they have different styles of acting. That’s why they have awards for Best Actor/Supporting Actor and Best Actress/Supporting Actress.
        4. I get the feeling that she could star in a slew of movies and get critically acclaimed for it and you would still only consider her to be decent.
        5. Leo and Fassy are both older and have more experience and starred in more films than she has (Leo wasn’t even in 12 years a slave)
        I also think you comparing Lupita to those two is kinda racist and really sexist.

    • Kimberly says:

      Yeah that’s true and so sad.

      Just goes to show you how messed up Hollywood is from its (producers, casting directors etc in the movie industry.)

  39. kri says:

    Those pics are gorgeous. Yes, she chose a blockbuster and is set for life…but she just isn’t that good of an actress. JLaw gets on my nerves, but she is so talented, I don’t really care. Also, KStew is just kind of an uninteresting, lip-biting b*tch.

  40. stacat1 says:

    yes, she has been lucky but she def cannot get ANY role she wants (she may later say after they pass on her- that she never wanted it anyway).
    And I agree…there are scripts that jennifer lawrence will get/chased after for that Kristen’s people will never see.
    Kristen has yet to show range. Until that happens…she won’t be oscar worthy/top tier. You can’t play one note and expect every variety of role to fall in your lap…not in this day and age.

  41. smh says:

    this interview has been translated from english to german to russian. if you really care what she said you should check the german translation because it’s probably closer to what was actually said. all she said was that she’s so lucky she doesn’t have to fight w/ other actors over the roles she wants. nothing about getting any roles with a snap of her fingers. i know y’all love to hate but there really isn’t anything wrong with what she said.

  42. lunchcoma says:

    I’m curious to see what this was before it was translated.

    If it turns out that she’s acknowledging that she doesn’t have to scrape and beg for any old role so she can pay her bills, that’s fine. If she actually thinks she can have any role she wants, I’m curious why she hasn’t wanted anything that’s been nominated for an Oscar or (since she says she’s not averse to blockbusters) anything since Twilight that’s been a megahit.

  43. Maria says:

    so much for all the stans telling us how Kristen was so horribly punished for her own mistakes. how her career suffered and bla bla bla. it does not seem like that at all.

    we also know how she gets her roles.

  44. Reece says:

    Whatever may have been lost in translation, which I suspect is a lot, it’s still the same attitude that she has always had. I get what she’s trying to say and I would still find it arrogant from anyone else.
    But I expect no better from Kristen.
    The only thing I got from this is liking Binoche a little less now. “I agree” and “Good” can’t that distorted from translation.

  45. skippy says:

    In life I find I like to get away when people are arrogant and brag like that. There are just so many nice people to be around.

  46. Peach says:

    Seriously, does she WANT us to dislike her? Because she seems more unlikable with every interview she gives. And if she’s right about getting any role she wants with a snap of her fingers why are all her roles in films that are either limited release or VOD? She says she loves both Oscar caliber indies and blockbusters but she’s had neither since Twilight ended.

    Kristen talks like it’s still 2009 and she’s still HW’s It Girl. Her ego can’t see that 1) she was replaced years ago by about half a dozen other actresses and 2) her success was because of Twilight and all the tabloid attention surrounding her relationship with Rob Pattinson. Not her mega artistic talent. Without Twilight and Rob most of her popularity is gone. And with her lousy attitude what little public goodwill she had is mostly gone too.

  47. Dany says:

    so these two women made an interview in english, then someone from the magazine translated it into german and then some fan (with google translator?) translated it back into english.

    Why are we even talking about this?

  48. Izzy says:

    *running after my eyeballs, which have just rolled out of my head…*

  49. wow says:

    Hmm “by the snap of my fingers”

    …”and the clap of my vagina.” I feel like they left that part out in translation. Or perhaps that’s just how I see her.

    This interview will h o down as yet another reason I’m not a fan. She sucks…literally.

  50. Di says:

    “I can get any role with a spread of my legs.”
    There.
    Fixed it for ya.

  51. thedarklady says:

    She’s played what, two decent parts in her life? Almost all her films are awful. She doesn’t even have the manners to be embarrassed. Biting one’s lips is not acting.
    I’d like to end by imploring you all to visit youtube and search for ‘Kristen Stewart Worst Line Delivery EVER!’

  52. MAC says:

    I have not gone to a movie that had her in it. The only thing I saw was when she was a child in Panic Room with Jodie Foster. She happened to be in that movie.

    I will not go see any movie she is in because of her interviews. What she says and her attitude are a turn off for me.
    I wish it would go back to how it was before all the social media. I enjoyed going to a movie and not knowing much about the actor as a person. Meaning their political and relationship status.
    I have lost a lot of respect for Leonardo for the same reason.

    I enjoy actors who act or direct but that stay in that arena. The recent quote from a previous Dr. Who was great. (What David Tennant said when asked what his stance was on Scotland’s Independence)

  53. lia says:

    I don’t know who asked about Jen recommending Amanda for the part, but she said this during her Yahoo chat ( I believe it was with Yahoo) during the Catching Fire campaign. Jen was with Francis Lawrence. She didn’t come right out and say it was for the film Equals, but it was understood. I also read it somewhere else, but right now it’s not coming to me. Basically, Jen said the script was emotional, but she couldn’t see herself playing the part and kept imagining Amanda S. in the role and even suggested her for the part. That’s the truth.

  54. Lux says:

    The delusion is strong in this one.

  55. St says:

    Honey – no you can’t. You can’t take role in 100 millions budget blockbuster. They just threw you out of the sequel of Snow White, remember? They resurrect Charlize Theron in some sort of prequel because she is real movie star.

    You can’t have even 50 millions budget movie. You think you can but you didn’t try. And if you would – you would fail. All you can do is to get roles iin small budget movies that no one will see.

    You know no one would take you for the role of Mystic.
    No one would place you in the role of the wife of Christian Bale in American Hustle
    No one would cast you as astronaut in Gravity
    No one would cast you as Wonder Woman
    No one would cast you in the role in Edge of Thomorrow
    No one would cast you i Les Miserables.
    And on and on.

  56. Jayna says:

    I sure a lot has been lost in translation, but I imagine even then, while maybe not quite as bad in how she said it, that she still comes across pretentious and self-important and insufferable in her response about her career. She’s an average actress. It’s not the affair that turns me off from her as far as not wanting to see anything she’s starring in. It’s her insufferable, pretentious interviews. Delusions of grandeur much, Kristen?

  57. H2O says:

    Kristen is not destined to have JLaw’s career but she may get to date Chris Martin someday.

  58. BlackBetty says:

    I thought she was great in The Runaways. But besides that nothing.

  59. birch says:

    Not a fan at all but this seems like it could be quite riddled with misinterpretation. She doesn’t speak German does she? What she said was translated to German and then translated back to English; probably by someone who knew what they were doing in the first case but there still can be problems there but in the second case possibly by someone who doesn’t know what they are doing much at all. I’d hate to be judged on anything I said that went forth to the world under those circumstances. Lots of reasons to find her unappealing but I give her a pass on this since it’s third hand at best.

  60. Adrien says:

    The ringtoss girl in The Flintstones was her best role. She lobbied for the part too.

  61. Dalovelee says:

    Very strange that she would think saying something so arrogant would be perceived positive. I will save my money and watch this. Juliet Binoche feature online. Stewart is off her rocker to say something so blatantly with her head up her a**.

  62. Sarah says:

    Ahm… random side note… from Interview Germany? On the kstew-Fanpage, it looks russian to me… Am I missing something? You sure it was translate from GERMAN?

  63. MM. says:

    I know this is a gossip website, but why twist words to rile people up. Kristen simple stated, that she is sent lots of scripts. She is offered roles (maybe because her movies have earned over 4 billion dollars). I read the interview and she was simple stating facts, she has been offered roles and has not had to struggle for work. Of course she is young and like all female actors the roles will start to dry up. That is just a fact in Hollywood.

  64. Diane says:

    Too bad she can’t snap herself some talent and intelligence. I’d like to slap that smirk right off her face. Little bitch.

  65. Godwina says:

    OMG Binoche has the patience of a saint. You know she is NOT buying any of this and wishing she didn’t have to be in that cover shot.

  66. Chris says:

    Snap your fingers and get the role of James Bond then.

  67. Sara says:

    J-Law has range and is truly a good actress. K-stew bites her lip and sulks and that’s about it. Ugh. Whatever. You know if she had never snagged Twilight she would be totally unknown and no one would care about her at all. The only movie she was good ever good in was Into the Wild. After that I can barely stand to watch her in a film because she is SO BAD. Her Snow White was a joke.

  68. pnichols says:

    Did she snap before she banged someone’s husband? she got that role down pretty quick. Time for little Miss to get over herself.

  69. Franny Days says:

    Snap of her “fingers”…haha is that a euphemism for something else?

  70. Tania2 says:

    Yeah, she’s hot now, but in about ten years she will be whining about “ageism” in Hollywood and the lack of roles for actresses over age 35.

  71. Maritza says:

    She’s has this snobby bratty like persona which is hard to like.

  72. Barristerette says:

    Classy, as always. Ugh, she’s insufferable.
