Kristen Stewart thinks she has a ‘weighted energy’ & that we need a lady 007


Here are some photos of Kristen Stewart out and about in New York on Monday. She’s in NYC doing the promotional rounds for Café Society, the Woody Allen movie. The suit is by The Kooples, and it’s actually a pretty good look. I don’t mind that she’s wearing flats, but I don’t care for these particular Chanel Resort flats. Otherwise this is a very clean, pretty look for K-Stew. This is what she wore for her Good Morning America interview, which you can see here. She says she adores Jesse Eisenberg, who is “stupidly smart.” She also talked a little bit about how she got the part – she had to audition for Woody Allen.

“I had to audition for the part because I tend to have a more weighted energy. And the character has this light, buoyant energy. Woody said, ‘As long as you don’t walk like a sailor you will be fine.’ So I auditioned for it and apparently did OK.”

[From The Daily Mail]

I never get tired of the younger generations’ constant self-reflection and need to define themselves to other people. They can’t just BE, they have to describe how they are to other people. Kristen thinks she has a “weighted energy” – does she? While I don’t think she’s a silly, “light” person, I also don’t think she’s as dark, weighted and mysterious as she thinks she is.

Kristen is also promoting Equals during the same promotional tour, and Kristen and Nick Hoult did a joint interview with E! a few days ago. It’s getting a lot of attention because Nick and Kristen riff on James Bond and who should be cast. Hoult says he’s not interested, mostly because he thinks he’s too young. Kristen thinks that the whole franchise is getting “a little stale” anyway, and when Hoult says that Idris Elba should be the next Bond, Kristen basically says that they should hire a woman. Hoult says if she was Jane Bond, he would be her Q.


Kristen’s also on the cover of the new issue of Elle UK.

    Love her look in the top photo. Otherwise, think she’s an annoying young woman who’s full of herself.

    • celine says:

      This is the first time ever that I like the way KS looks from top to bottom. She actually looks clean.

  2. Danielle says:

    I really like this look on her. The suit and shoes are great and I love that her hair looks soft and clean, without all the product they use on her for an “edgy” look i.e. crunchy or greasy.

  3. Tim Whatley says:

    Nothing quite as annoying to me as people who self-proclaim their own depth. The most profound and/or admirable folks in my experience are those that just “do” without all the ennui/naval gazing.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Thank you. If you have to say it about yourself, it’s not necessarily true so much as wishful thinking. It’s only legit when it comes from the people who know you best, otherwise it’s just more Goopy self-aggrandizing and humble-bragging. So, now we know. She WANTS to be deep and mysterious. That’s why all the faux resentment and surliness.

  4. Bex says:

    She looks good in that suit. What does ‘weighted energy’ even mean?

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      Yes to both. I picture her as dragging around small lead weights tied on with cords.

      Yes, that’s how she comes across: leaden!

    • Twinky says:

      “Weighted energy” is what wet blankets have. I do like that suit, though!

    • JenniferJustice says:

      The total opposite of light-hearted. Dark, solemn, simpering – basically every trait Robb’s vampire character was in Twilight. I have never heard it referred to as weighted energy. I think that’s a euphemism someone made up rather than telling her she’s a bore.

  5. DanaG says:

    If you have to tell people your a weighted energy you aren’t it’s like people who tell you they are funny. She looks good, but she is a snobby young girl who thinks she is so much more then she actually is. No way would she make a good bond she doesn’t have the style or class. Idris Elba is my favorite I think he would be amazing. He has the right attitude and can be funny he would look great in a suit. I do think it’s time for a James Bond change but not Kristen could be woman but it would need to be someone a little older then her if it was a woman and it would change the dynamic. While Bond is a womaniser and people are fine with his bed hopping ways I’m not so sure they would too happy about a woman doing the same thing! I do like the suit but not the shoes so much. She is lucky she is skinny she can get away with wearing all white.

  6. Sixer says:

    What is a weighted energy? Is it like an aura, only heavy? If only she had an Unbearable Lightness of Being instead. I’m sure we’d all breathe a sigh of relief.

  7. Tillie says:

    Kinda grossed out by Woody Allen’s “don’t walk like a sailor” remark.

    Like Stewart doesn’t perform femininity to that old creep’s standards?

    • adastraperaspera says:

      Yes, this is also how I interpreted his comment. I think it’s a combination of thinly veiled sexism and homophobia. One could refute this by using his support of Annie Hall in menswear to demonstrate he’s pro-feminist. I don’t agree with that, though. In my opinion, Annie Hall merely exemplifies Allen’s propensity for modeling many of his female characters on the Eliza Doolittle trope. I’m disappointed that Kristen is participating in this.

    • Bob says:

      I 100% interpreted that story as Woody Allen made her audition to prove she’s capable of not coming across as butch. I’ve also read comments from struggling actors that “he’s too light” is a common way of dismissing a gay actor from consideration (regardless of how traditionally masculine he is in his presentation), so I assumed the term “weighted” was something Kristen was told by others, not a word she was choosing to describe herself.

      • Another nina says:

        Oh this is so wrong… And for me the hottest masculine performance of all time was delivered last year by Thure Lindhard (in Danish original version of theBridge), who happens to be gay…

  8. Micki says:

    I summoned my energy to read her thoughts and a great weight was lifted off my shoulders after I finished.
    And I find her great in white.

  9. Carol says:

    She needs a translator. I never understand what the heck she is trying to say. I’m sure to her an orange is stupidly smart. Regardless, I think she’s quite a smart dresser, love her style and I love her hair.

  10. mkyarwood says:

    Totally disinterested in her opinion of herself, but I agree with the lady 007 bit.

  11. Queendolly says:

    I can see the whole weighted energy thing, she is as dumb as a bag of rocks after all (as is anyone who still chooses to work with that vile swine Woody Allen)

  12. Burgher says:

    Weighted energy = Zero charisma

  13. Mabel says:

    Not quite sure why all the criticism for her “weighted energy” comment. She is being interviewed, so, duh, she’s going to talk about herself! She was comparing her character’s energy to her own and how it differs. Love the white suit and loafers in the one pic but sorry, I still can’t get with the bleached out blonde hair she’s been sportin’ lately. If it was her usual dark shade, I’d love it because I do like this shorter length on her.

  14. CornyBlue says:

    Someone said in another site that Bond as a character itself is awfully misogynistic and casting a woman would try to tame that component and shine a better light on Bond that character does not deserve. We should have a new franchise with roles written for ladies as a kickass spy.
    I absolutely agree with that.

  15. Tig says:

    It is surprising to me that someone as woefully inarticulate as KS is still trotted out to talk shows. The pant suit looks good on her.

  16. littlemissnaughty says:

    Half the time she’s trying to sound smart and fails miserably because WHAT?

    So the industry insists that she’s a good actress and I keep thinking maybe I just haven’t watched the right movie. So I rent American Ultra and again, I fail to see the skill and talent. It’s always the same, whether it’s Twilight or Snow White or American Ultra. Those movies have absolutely nothing in common and yet, she plays the same person! Really, if someone can shed some light on this, please do.

    • madi says:

      It’s easy to explain: different taste, different perspective= different opinions.

    • CornyBlue says:

      I saw Into The Wild and Clouds of Sils Maria and thought she was great in both of those specially the latter. I also heard from a friend who was in Cannes that she was great in Personal Shopper and critics were very impressed with her.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        I honestly don’t remember her in Into the Wild but I’ll re-watch it at some point. I’ve heard great things about Clouds of Sils Maria so I’ll give it a try. I don’t think the issue I have is that she’s not capable of a good performance. It’s just … the DeNiro factor. She’s always the same person on screen.

      • Diana B says:

        I watched CoSM expecting the greatness and was sorely disappointed. She’s the same in every. Single. Movie. She plays herself and depending on the role sometimes that works and that’s where all the comments about her being great come from. She just gets lucky once in a while the character behaves like she does.

      • Hannah says:

        She’s good in certain movies, her droll delivery works well in those films. She’s a limited actress imo. Nicholas is a babe!

      • ashley says:

        You mean like the Village Voice critic who said ” It also doesn’t help that Stewart’s fidgety, mechanical performance indulges some of her worst acting tics.”

      • Nik says:

        No Ashley, Cornyblue probably meant the critic at Variety: “Stewart is a terrific actress, her brittle exterior barely masking whatever tempest she or her characters are battling underneath”

        Or the critic at the Guardian: “Kristen Stewart’s performance is tremendous: she is calm and blank in the self-assured way of someone very competent, smart and young, yet her displays of emotion are very real and touching.”

        Or the critic at the Wrap: “finding jittery — and, yes, sexual — energy in Stewart that no other director can seem to unlock.”

      • Another nina says:

        Oh yes, “calm and blank” are the two exact words I was searching for to describe Kristen’s usual acting efforts.

    • Aquamarine says:

      She only has a small part in Into The Wild – there’s a 10min video of her scenes cut together on youtube, just search for her name + Into The Wild (I’m pretty sure the video is called Into The Wild. Kristen Stewart and Emile Hirsch). There’s something about her in that movie, something really intriguing and wildly beautiful – can’t really put my finger on it. You can hear her play guitar and sing and she’s got THE MOST GORGEOUS SINGING VOICE. I definitely didn’t expect that.

      Also watch The Cake Eaters if you can – she plays a young girl with Friedreich’s ataxia who wants to lose her virginity. She’s amazing in that one! I went to school with a guy who had this disease and she really nails it. Mary Stuart Masterson directed the movie and apparently people would continually ask her where she found an actress with Friedreich’s ataxia -that’s how good she is. And I’m saying this as someone who knows a guy with that exact disease. Watch the trailer on youtube – it’s a lovely movie in general, very heart warming!

      All that being said – she’s not an everybody’s darling type and her acting style is definitely not everybodys cup of tea.
      Anyway – hope I could help! : )

    • Gatita says:

      She’s not a good actor but she has an energy that can be interesting in the right part. For example, the first Twilight film, she’s actually very convincing in her obsession for Edward. But she has no range and can’t do anything emotionally complex. I’d compare her to an actor like Keanu Reeves who has one note and is terrible in anything that requires stretching–but is very effective in parts that don’t require anything but that one note.

  17. Betti says:

    She’s upped her style game but she’s the same old ‘full of her own talent’ that she’s always been. While she’s not a bad as she used to be – she still comes across as that sullen, spoilt teenager who takes herself more seriously than the rest of the world does.

    Plus, she’s an average actress as best who got lucky with a few good roles.

  18. Mira says:

    Nicholas is so hot! And i agree with him on Idris, best bond out of the ones that are constantly mentioned.

  19. EMc says:

    Is the guy behind her a random, or is he with her and those white pumps were what she was wearing with her suit?

    I like her in this interview.. Not so twitchy.

    • mary s says:

      I noticed that. I like the suit with the flats, but I’m partial to flats. I love her whole look here.

  20. perplexed says:

    When she’s in an industry where she has to compete with people like Angelina Jolie, I wonder how this girl manages to remain so conceited.

  21. Sarah says:

    She looks very lovely in the ads for the Cafe movie – very beautiful indeed. And her costumes don’t look creepy or pervy as they did while she was filming – they mesh perfectly

  22. ashley says:

    She’s not promoting Equals in NY – that was all last week. Minimal stuff since its probably only going to open in a few theaters and then disappear like all of the other A24/Direct TV partnership releases have. Lionsgate/Amazon is paying for NY – studios don’t like it when you mention another movie on their dime.

  23. serena says:

    This looks is perfect for her (though I don’t really like her blonde hair), also I like when she’s with Hoult, they have a nice chemistry (and he’s so hot!).

  24. Another nina says:

    I do like this look on her. Other than that, Kristen Stewart epitomizes to me a Hollywood’s puzzle…Every time I see her in yet another movie, I grief of a killed career of some really talented actress – a girl, who graduated from Yale drama school or some other respectful school and who will never be given her chance because we are supposed to see a one-trick-pony Kstew 5 times a year. See, Tilda is an actress but why we refer like that to KStew? And no matter, how much older she becomes, her interviews don’t reflect any acquired experience or depth…

  25. Gatita says:

    I dislike her but props for managing to sell an image as a rebel and outsider while wearing Chanel, appearing in mainstream films and calling the paps. That’s impressive.

  26. Tracy says:

    She would be really interesting if she was half as interesting as she thinks she is… I think, she comes off as dumb most of the time.

  27. cat says:

    I am looking forward to Cafe Society and Equals. Kristen is certainly my favorite young actress, love her movies.
