StrictlyRobsten Quote of the Day

 

From Kristen Stewart, V Magazine, Spring 2013

“I really love people,” she says as she hops into a chair and folds her tiny frame like origami. “You can’t not as an actor. It’s just strange meeting someone and going, Okay, you start at square one and I will try and make up for what you already think you know about me.”

She tries so hard to be what fans need her to be. Part of my frustration with the general consensus of judgy morons (yes, that is a technical term) who have a pre-conceived ill opinion of her is that she really is so amazingly cool to her fans and they would NEVER admit that.  I’ve met her several times and have never had anything but a great experience. Sometimes, though, I’d love to be able to tell her “It’s ok, Kristen. You don’t have to be a certain way just to make us happy. Flip off the camera. It’s cool. I get it!” LOL!

On the Road Headed Back to Theaters

Kristen+Stewart+Kristen+Stewart+Premiere+Road+XLIQP42I54ul

It looks like On the Road will be back in theaters March 22, according to LA Times.  Though it does not include a list of theaters, here is what the article had to say about the long overdue release, where they also mentioned a VOD option:

After “On the Road” grossed just $150,000 in a total of six theaters and the film failed to pick up much awards interest, distributor IFC decided to shelve plans to widen the film in mid-January.

But in an unconventional move, it will give “On the Road” another whirl. Beginning March 22,  the movie will play on 150 screens, including several in cities, such as Chicago and San Francisco, where it never played. IFC will also make it available on VOD for the first time.

“We were planning a pretty major expansion for January,” Jonathan Sehring, president of IFC Films, said in a phone interview Wednesday. “But when you don’t get the awards attention that you’re hoping for, you have to be willing to change your plans.”  Sehring said he believes March offers a clearer runway, without the traffic of the holidays’ major awards titles.

Jim Sturgess Talks Kristen & The Big Shoe

“It’s basically about shoe designs,” he explained. “I play a young shoemaker who has a foot fetish, so the whole idea is about foot fetishes and shoemaking, basically. So another Hollywood blockbuster.”

Jim has yet to meet co-star Kristen but he is obviously well-aware of her work.

“No, I’ve never met her, so it’ll be exciting,” he enthused. “I know who she is. I’ve seen her in some great movies. She did a film called ‘Adventureland’ that I really liked.”

And how exactly will his character, Elizabeth’s and Kristen’s all fit together?

“Elizabeth Banks plays a therapist who is trying to coax me—who’s been hired by my family to coax me into making shoes again. I’m sort of a retired shoe artist. I now work in, like, a Payless shoe store. I’ve given up on shoes all together. So they bring in Kristen Stewart’s character as a muse, and I fall in love with her feet basically. I don’t even look at her from the knee down until [gestures at feet]. I saw some audition tapes, her feet look pretty amazing.”

When we told Jim of Kristen’s recent foot injury (on display at this year’s Oscars ceremony), he was quick to (jokingly) explain the situation:

“She was doing foot training,” he said. “Working those muscles.”

FAN FICTION FRIDAY – VALENTINES DAY EDITION

srFanficFridayHAPPY VALENTINES DAY! I went a little crazy on the banner, pink and red are lovely colors. I personally love Valentines Day because I love any holiday where eating mass amounts of chocolate/candy is socially acceptable (I’m also looking at you Easter & Halloween!)

I figured I’d do a Valentines Day Edition instead of a Friday because..why not?

Here’s two fics that I love dearly!

_____________________________

Title:  String Theory

Author: theladyingrey42

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7589412/1/String-Theory

Summary: “Eleven dimensions. Infinite parallel realities. And in all of them, I love her.” Muppets, math, and physicists falling in love. Fluff and eventual lemons. ExB, AH.

Status: Completed

Excerpt: 

I know she lives in an old neighborhood, far away from student housing – that she doesn’t socialize with anyone from our program much at all. That she’s insanely beautiful and that she could have anyone she wants, but that she never, ever dates. That her voice, as rare as it is to hear, is gentle and low.

That she’s smart. Brilliant. Smarter than me, and I’m not trying to brag when I tell you that’s saying something.

I know she likes theoretical versus experimental physics, that she earned the only A in Dr. Banner’s nanoscale class last semester, and that string theory is her area of interest.

I know she looks particularly insanely beautiful in blue.

And as I hitch my backpack higher on my shoulders and shove my glasses up my nose, I decide there’s one other thing I know.

I know that today’s the day I’m going to go up to her.

Today’s the day I’m going to say hello.

Why? I’m a sucker for The Big Bang Theory. I’ve seen every episode, I can quote it like it’s my job and I love nerdy things. Therefore, this fic hit me hard & I love love love love love it.

Title: Conversations Over Coffee

Author: cosmogirl7481

Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6743346/1/Conversations-Over-Coffee

Summary: Conversations over coffee. Sometimes when you meet “the one,” falling is easy – as simple as talking. Effortless. You just have to find the words. AH

Status: Completed

Excerpt: 

“What’s your name?”

She asks me this as if she’s entitled to know. And maybe she is.

Definitely.

She definitely is.

“Why do you want to know?”

I challenge her, because I really want to know the answer to the question. I really do want to know why she would be interested in knowing anything about me.

“Well, first of all, you know my name.”

“Yeah…and?” I say, playing with the little silver flippy thing on the sugar container. I briefly wonder what it’s called. “Your name is on your badge, Bella.”

My heart stutters a bit as I say it.

Her name.

Why? Because everyone needs some humor/romance fics in their life.

Kristen’s Interview with Now Toronto [TIFF]

movie-Road01-0117_large

 

Kristen talks about the making of On the Road, her experiences while filming, and going through the process of portraying real people on screen.

Kristen Stewart swears a lot. This instantly makes her a human being rather than the tabloid icon she’s unwillingly become at age 22 thanks to the Twilight saga and its constant media presence.

Stewart’s at the Toronto Film Festival with On The Road, an adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s classic beat novel in which she plays Marylou, the sexually adventurous child bride of the charismatic Dean Moriarty. (Yes, there are nude scenes. No, they aren’t explicit.) She’s been paired with Garrett Hedlund, who plays Moriarty, and the two of them are at their most animated when discussing the freewheeling, improvisational style director Walter Salles encouraged during the rehearsal process.

“I tortured myself in the most amazing, wonderful way for four weeks,” she says, “and then as soon as the four weeks were done it was like, ‘You need to stop thinking, because if you don’t you’re gonna regret this entire experience. You’re gonna look back and say: I fucked up. I thought too much.’”

“It’s always fun to have freedom and have, like, happy accidents where you go, ‘Wow, that’s cool, I didn’t expect that,’” she says. “But when you’re playing somebody who’s [actually] existed, you know.…” And she stops herself, rethinking her position on the fly.

“I don’t want to discredit what it feels like to play a character who’s been written by somebody,” she continues. “You feel just as responsible to the writer and to everyone who’s been affected by that character.”

“I’ve played Joan Jett,” she says, “and because she was on set every day I couldn’t improv. I couldn’t. Everything I said, I spoke to her about it. You know – you can’t put words in their mouths unless you know. Unless you really feel it, and it’s coming from the right place.”

StrictlyRobsten Quote of the Day

StrictlyRobsten Quote of the Day

 

Kristen Stewart, British GQ Magazine, November 2011

“It’s about the only place I can still come in LA where I have an iota of invisibility. And” – her delicate, beautiful, refined features losing all humour suddenly – “I’d prefer to keep it that way.”

Kristen fiercely protects and guards her privacy. Well, what little of it she has left… She is legendary for wanting to keep what is hers actually hers and with so many in the media and beyond trying to rob her of that, I say GOOD FOR HER. I love the interviewer’s commentary on her features and how they go from joking to completely serious. It should demonstrate how serious Kristen is about this particular subject.

Thoughts?
