New Kristen Interview in ELLE UK

Kristen StewartKristen offers up some beauty advice in ELLE UK.

In the April issue of ELLE, out today, Kristen Stewart shares her favourite beauty products. Here she talks about changing her looks for roles, her favourite smells and the unlikely character she looks to for beauty advice…

On aging:

‘I’ve just started using an eye cream, you know I never used to worry about these things but lately I have noticed my skin changing’.

On getting enough sleep:

‘Typically I try to get good sleep, drink water, eat healthy. I could sleep 10 hours, but I find eight hours is sufficient’.

‘But then I’ve had some of my most treasured experiences on no sleep like when we were filming On the Road. I’m not even kidding there were nights we didn’t sleep but we were living well and so inspired – everyone looked great.’

On changing her look for roles:

‘I’m pretty much open to anything – if I really loved the part I’d do anything. You know, hair grows relatively speaking – it doesn’t take that long in exchange for a good experience so I think it’s worth it. I’ve been blonde, dark, I’ve had reddish hair, short long. I run the gambit’.

On her off-duty style:

‘I go for a typically natural look, not just because its easy. I’m from Southern California – I was born and raised in LA and here we’re very casual. If I go to London or New York – it’s so fancy; I’m the one looking completely out of place.’

‘My mom is a completely southern California girl – she is why I am ‘Miss jeans and a T-shirt’. You look at those people, who are so put together, and then you look at their mom’s and they tend to be put together. My mom is like don’t worry about it; make-up is so artificial why would you not want to look like yourself?’

On beauty advice:

‘Take a tip from Zoolander,’ she told ELLE. ‘Moisture is key’ she said referring to the movie quote – ‘Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty’.

On her beauty icon:

‘Chloe Sevigny is intimidatingly cool. She does the whole no make-up thing so well, but when she does go for a ‘look’ it just works.’

On her favourite smells:

‘I really love cooking – I love the smell of fresh herbs. Do not like to bake, there’s like a chemistry element that I’m not into. I like cooking American comfort food – but then I can also do lighter, healthier food. Gardenia is probably my favourite smell.’

On how a man should smell:

‘Man, honestly I don’t like aftershave. I don’t even like it when their hair smells of product.’

Lionsgate Buys Rights to American Ultra

jesse-eisenberg_65811Perhaps the biggest news this year in terms of acquisitions, Lionsgate bought Kristen and Jesse Eisenberg’s American Ultra, penned by Max Landis, for a whopping $7 million. American Ultra is set to begin filming in Louisiana mid-April.

The appetite for scripts and partially finished films is soaring. Lionsgate is tying up a deal today to pay $7 million to pre-buy U.S. distribution rights to American Ultra, the action comedy that begins shooting in New Orleans in five weeks with Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart starring for Project X director Nima Nourizadeh. In the script by Chronicle writer Max Landis, Eisenberg plays a stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend (Stewart) is upended when his past catches up with him, putting him the crosshairs of a government operation bent on wiping him out. It’s a co-production between A Likely Story and Circle Of Confusion, with Anthony Bregman, David Alpert and Britton Rizzio producing, and Kevin Scott Frakes of Palmstar Media Capital and Raj Brinder Singh of Merced Media Partners exec producing.
