    Is this Lexbait?

    Nice to actually see a new expression on her face, if only in one shot.

    Note to Lex: When you click these, they blow up almost to life size. You could have hours of fun with the open mouth shot. Well, seconds anyway.

    Yancy, thanks for the tip… WOW. WOW. LOOK AT HER. She is the best, the best, the greatest EVER EVER EVER… Can’t believe I was starting to think Emma Stone was making a bid for #2, because NO ONE is within a zillion miles of K-STEW, here seen channeling Esther Williams by way of Jenna Haze.

    This on top of the new W. magazine, it’s a good time to be a K-Stew fan. I also like the chess pic because you can see her heels CUTE CUTE CUTE.

    One thing though, is when she’s in Bella mode she wears throse brown contacts, and I prefer her with her usual green eyes like in other movies WHAT AM I SAYING LOOK AT HER.

    That young woman looks pale and a little undernourished. I hope that she gets some good nutrition at the craft table. I wonder if her parents are taking good care of her in between films? She seems so waifish and vulnerable. Perhaps one day she will blossom into full womanhood.

    This is reminding me that I have to get around to seeing ECLIPSE. I’m defintiely a fan of Stewart (my favorite performances are in RUNAWAYS and ADVENTURELAND, where she kind of kills me), and I think the 2 TWILIGHT movies I’ve seen are overly harshly judged because the feminine, unabashedly romantic, melodramatic heart of them goes against the male geek-thing that dominates the internet. Also, did anyone here talk about the Snow White pic from comiccon? She looks really rad and badass in it.

  7. LexG says:

    She looked GREAT in her LITTLE WARRIOR OUTFIT in that Snow White still, but I am still confused: I thought THE GODDESS was literally playing Snow White, not Nigel Terry in Excalibur. Shouldn’t she have had some flowing dress with a magic wand and bare feet or something? Why are there WARRIORS in Snow White?

    Also JKill it is good for ONCE to hear someone digging her on these blogs; I SWEAR TO GOD, if she hadn’t opted to do Twilight, which has become her signature role, she’d be a geek drool-icon on par with Portman or Johansson; She was so ethereal and ENCHANTING in Into the Wild, Zathura, Speak, What Just Happened?, The Messengers, etc etc etc, she was hot on her way to having the Total Johansson career; Such is the Geek Rage over Twilight that she doesn’t get a fair shake AT ALL anymore, even though it’s obvious the Twilight fame kind of pains her and she loves doing smart indie movies and edgy mainstream fare. Plus she is THE SINGLE GREATEST ACTOR OF ALL TIME. And the hottest chick ever EVER EVER.

  8. JKill says:

    From what I’ve read, her Snow White is like THE LORD OF THE RINGS version, whereas the Tarsem take is more or less a new version of what we’ve come to expect. I think hers looks much cooler. It’ll be fun to see her in action.

    I actually don’t disagree with you at all on that, Lex. She’s got a fascinating, edgy, naturalistic thing going on that’s terribly compelling. I’m kind of at a loss when people demean her work. Even in TWILIGHT, she strikes a very real tone despite how incredibly heightened the emotions and feelings are. She’s also just unique in her look and attitude. I feel like TWILIGHT kind of blinds internet criticism to her other stuff. THE RUNAWAYS and ADVENTURELAND are unimpeachable, and the heartbreaker quality she has in the latter is very reminiscent of Portman in GARDEN STATE, although she’s much less idealised and more raw. The fact that she does pretty small indies on the regular, and has worked with Figgis, Fincher, Penn, Levinson (WHAT JUST HAPPEND? is kind of underrated), and Gordon Green speaks volumes about her ambitions and interests. I think the first time I ever noticed her was IN THE LAND OF THE WOMEN, a kind of James Brooks-ish dramedy, which I like a good deal. And yes, she’s very very pretty.

  9. Peter says:

    I like her a lot in Adventureland, and she isn’t bad in The Runaways and Into the Wild either. But no amount of $ would get me to see the Twilight movies. And I don’t know where to start on Snow White, I just hope she doesn’t play with her hair in every single film.

  10. yancyskancy says:

    Yeah, it looks kinda like SNOW OF ARC or something.

    I think Kristin Stewart is great (and lovely), and I really haven’t seen her in much EXCEPT the Twilight movies. ADVENTURELAND has been in my Netflix queue forever, but my girlfriend (who is a huge Twihard) keeps bumping it down for stuff like No Strings Attached and Something Borrowed.

  11. LexG says:

    You guys need to see Welcome to the Rileys, stat.

    And Yellow Handkerchief.

    I of course 1st saw her in Panic Room, and was like, hmm, who is this INTERESTING looking girl? All those “is Jodie Foster’s kid a boy or a girl” comments were pervasive, but I didn’t get it. Clearly this was a striking looking girl with MOUNTAINS of charisma… then she was in the Figgis-Quaid-Dorff house movie, then around Undertow I started sensing that, “Hmm, waaaait a minute…” feeling. But when I saw this Lifetime-ish indie called “Speak” in ’05, my jaw was ON THE FLOOR, immediately having found my favorite actress EVER… It was like I was hypnotized. No one has or ever will come close.

    I am looking at her. And I keep thinking, she should have an arc on THE WALKING DEAD.

It shows how out of it I was in trying to be in it, acknowledging that I was out of it to myself, and then thinking, “Okay, how do I stop being out of it? Well, I get some legitimate illogical narrative ideas” — some novel, you know?

So I decided on three writers that I might be able to option their material and get some producer, or myself as producer, and then get some writer to do a screenplay on it, and maybe make a movie.

And so the three projects were “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep,” “Naked Lunch” and a collection of Bukowski. Which, in 1975, forget it — I mean, that was nuts. Hollywood would not touch any of that, but I was looking for something commercial, and I thought that all of these things were coming.

There would be no Blade Runner if there was no Ray Bradbury. I couldn’t find Philip K. Dick. His agent didn’t even know where he was. And so I gave up.

I was walking down the street and I ran into Bradbury — he directed a play that I was going to do as an actor, so we know each other, but he yelled “hi” — and I’d forgot who he was.

So at my girlfriend Barbara Hershey’s urging — I was with her at that moment — she said, “Talk to him! That guy really wants to talk to you,” and I said “No, fuck him,” and keep walking.

But then I did, and then I realized who it was, and I thought, “Wait, he’s in that realm, maybe he knows Philip K. Dick.” I said, “You know a guy named—” “Yeah, sure — you want his phone number?”

My friend paid my rent for a year while I wrote, because it turned out we couldn’t get a writer. My friends kept on me about, well, if you can’t get a writer, then you write.”

“That was the most disappointing thing to me in how this thing was played. Is that I’m on the phone with you now, after all that’s been said, and the fundamental distinction between what James is dealing with in these other cases is not actually brought to the fore. The fundamental difference is that James Franco didn’t seek to use his position to have sex with anyone. There’s not a case of that. He wasn’t using his position or status to try to solicit a sexual favor from anyone. If he had — if that were what the accusation involved — the show would not have gone on. We would have folded up shop and we would have not completed the show. Because then it would have been the same as Harvey Weinstein, or Les Moonves, or any of these cases that are fundamental to this new paradigm. Did you not notice that? Why did you not notice that? Is that not something notable to say, journalistically? Because nobody could find the voice to say it. I’m not just being rhetorical. Why is it that you and the other critics, none of you could find the voice to say, “You know, it’s not this, it’s that”? Because — let me go on and speak further to this. If you go back to the L.A. Times piece, that’s what it lacked. That’s what they were not able to deliver. The one example in the five that involved an issue of a sexual act was between James and a woman he was dating, who he was not working with. There was no professional dynamic in any capacity.
