#182 Kristen Stewart – Em Lewin, Adventureland (2009)

We can almost hear the booing from here, but despite the antipathy generated by her work on the Twilight series, Kristen Stewart is actually an extremely accomplished actress when given less wishy-washy material to work with.

Adventureland is the perfect example, with her take on the awkward teenager avoiding the twin perils of quirk and perk. Some would play “troubled” in a blaze of hysterics, but Stewart’s quiet sadness yields a far more effective result.

Greatest Moment:
Her puzzlement at her parents’ marital problems. “My mom loses her hair in chemo and my dad starts fucking a bald woman,” she muses. “It’s just weird.”

  1. Well, that is awesome-I think. I’m glad they said “extremely accomplished actress” and she is, but why they have to diss Twilight every time…you know, she was Oscar worthy in Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2 as far as I’m concerned! If someone else had played Bella, there wouldn’t have been a New Moon.

    • Well, too bad people keep bringing it up and judging her whole personna because of it even though it’s not their (insert f word) business and that they don’t know the whole story.

      • Totally agree!
        And I must say that Adventureland is one of my favourite movies. I would love it even without Kristen :-)

  2. Finally, someone who understands that Kristen’s underacting is more powerful than most actors’ overacting. I think people who grew up watching soap operas do not understand subtlety when they see it…
