IFC: Is there anyone specific that you’d like to work with going forward?
RC: I met Kristen Stewart not long ago because I was involved with “On the Road” and I found her to be so charming and interesting.
This is a huge compliment coming from Roman Coppola! He was the producer of On the Road and went to Cannes with the cast last May. Check out our Cannes pocket guide here!

Kristen’s stylist, Tara Swennen, dishes on Kristen’s MET GALA look and how the process was, what she won’t wear, and more!
For both Kristen Stewart and Teresa Palmer, we started about a month out by figuring out who they were going with. We loved the idea of Stella McCartney for Kristen because she hasn’t gone with a girl before, so we were having our girl power moment.
With Kristen, we went over the sketches via email—and it was unanimous decision that we really liked the jumpsuit. Stella had given us the option of doing it in black or green and the cranberry red color that we ended up going with. Kristen went back and forth between the red and the green—and we just decided we loved it. Her hair is a little bit reddish right now, so we thought it would complement it well.
With Kristen we did our fitting via Skype with Stella. So it was really fun to do that—and they’re good friends and have met before in London, so that was really nice. That was just to make sure every nip and tuck was done properly. She had a representative from L.A. and a tailor we both used.

Great interview with Kristen, starting at 9:00 minutes. She talks passionately about not changing anything from the book, obsessive instincts about playing a mother, and what it’s like to look back at the first movie. Plus, what she remembers Catherine Hardwicke saying from the first movie and what’s most exciting while being on the set with everyone.

Michael Shannon played Kim Fowley in The Runaways alongside Kristen and mentions how she set up a meeting with him and original The Runaways manager Kim Fowley.
For The Runaways was it beneficial Kim is still around?
Yeah. The first day of shooting that I was involved with, Kristen Stewart said, “If you want to sit down with Kim Fowley then I can arrange it.” I said, “That would be great.” So Kristen and Joan Jett and myself and Kim Fowley met at a Denny’s in The Valley. We had dinner together. And Kim brought his albums…not his vinyl albums, but his photo albums and his newspaper clippings and all this stuff and he told, basically, his life story to me from the time he was a child to where he was at sitting across from me at that table. Yeah, it was incredible. It’s kind of a blur. I can’t say I remember a lot about it. He was talking very fast. I know he was sick as a child. But his parents were all right.
