And your daughter Kristen also plays a micro-cameo in the movie…
Yes, she is the secretary on the telephone. She loves the film and wanted to be a part of it. She was going to be Butterfly at first. Kristen attached herself to that role years ago but the schedule didn’t work. There was Snow White and the Huntsman and I have to push her up to do this big movie.
Let’s talk about Cannes. How is the festival going for you?
We are having a wonderful time here, it couldn’t be better. We already got offers for K-11, the movie has been very well received there.
How long are you staying?
Until May 26th. I’m here for the whole festival. My daughter Kristen is coming on the 22nd for her movie ON THE ROAD so I’ll be here to support her. I’m really proud of her.
Red carpet time then?
I don’t know yet, but I will definitely be on the background, applauding her.

I don’t know about you, but this is SUPER EXCITING news! I’m so happy that Kristen was able to be fit into the movie! I know she’s so proud of her Mom for this project!
Although Kristen was unable to lend her face for this film, she was very much an integral part of the film’s production, behind the scenes. Therefore, it is my thought that if this film, directed my her mother and co-starring her brother, were to premiere at SXSW, Kristen would most likely attend in support of her family (pending her schedule, of course). Films are still being locked for the festival, March 9-17. If you are interested in attending SXSW, details can be found on their official website, SXSW.com.
ICYMI: Here are our exclusive pictures of Kristen from when she attended SXSW in 2010. (Note: They aren’t the best quality, but hey, at least we saw her!)
We have found out that although Kristen will not be appearing in her mother’s ‘directorial debut’, Kristen’s brother, Cameron, will be! It’s going to be neat to see ‘C-Stew’ on screen!
Kristen Stewart won’t appear in “K-11,” her mom’s directorial debut, but big brother Cameron Stewart will, Variety’s Josh L. Dickey exclusively reports. It’ll be the first film credit for K-Stew’s older sibling, but not for his co-stars Goran Visnjic, D.B. Sweeney and Portia Doubleday. The film stars Visnjic as a successful young record producer who wakes up after a three-day binge in a special unit of L.A. County’s Men’s Central Jail that’s dedicated to vulnerable prisoners, a place ruled by a viper transsexual. (Cameron Stewart will play an inmate named “Sledgehammer.”) Though there was mass speculation that his kid sister of “Twilight” fame would also play a transgendered character, she is not involved in the project, alas. Shooting started July 18 at locations in Woodland Hills and Hollywood, and has moved on to the now-closed Sybil Brand correctional facility for women in Los Angeles County.

Claire Sinclair is cast as the Trophy Wife in Mrs. Stewart’s K-11.
Rumor Alert! Apparently Hollywood Life is reporting that Kristen is helping her mom with K-11 as a producer or scriptwriter for the film. I normally don’t trust HL, but this seems plausible. I was thinking that she’d help her mom out with the film since she’s expressed interest in it.
An insider tells HollywoodLife.com Kristen Stewart is currently in Los Angeles working on her next project!
Since wrapping The Twilight Saga more than two months ago, Kristen Stewart has been busy attending award shows, visiting her boyfriend Robert Pattinson in Toronto (where he’s filming Cosmopolis), traveling to London — and now the 21-year-old actress is in Los Angeles, where she’s busy at work on a project close to her heart!
“Kristen is at home right now in LA working with her mom, Jules, on their movie, K-11,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com. “I think she’s going to be a producer and a scriptwriter on the film.”
As we previously reported, Kristen has been working on K-11 — a movie about an autistic transgender named Butterfly, who meets a meth head transgender named Mousey in jail — for more than two years.
Originally Kristen’s Twilight co-star, Nikki Reed, was slated to star in the drama, but told us April 12, 2010 she backed out of the project.
K-11 will be directed by Kristen’s mom, Jules Mann-Stewart, and is scheduled to begin shooting next month.
