Let’s begin by making things clear: Kristen Stewart is not, at the age of 24 and with 33 film credits in the past 15 years, quitting Hollywood.
But Stewart has been carving out her own career path since graduating from the Twilight series, focusing on such smaller, independent features as Camp X-Ray, Clouds of Sils Maria, and, most recently, in Still Alice, where she plays Lydia, a daughter who must care for her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother — played by the Golden Globe-winning, Oscar-nominated Julianne Moore.
Stewart, however, wants to keep things unpredictable and is always willing to take a chance. Like, perhaps, a blockbuster Marvel or DC film. “I love watching those movies,” she tells Yahoo Movies. “I would love to show people that I can do more than just be ‘Kristen Stewart’ in a different movie, in a different circumstance.” She notes her past role as Snow White in the big-budget fantasy adventure Snow White and the Huntsman could be a jumping off point for a superhero role. “I’m sure I could get on board with Captain America, you know what I mean?… It would just have to be the right thing.”

It’s no secret that Kristen Stewart is a huge fan of Julianne Moore (who isn’t, right?!).
While appearing on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night, the 24-year-old actress opened up about playing the daughter of a woman with Alzheimer’s in her and Moore’s flick Still Alice.
“With anything that’s worth doing it’s always gonna scare you a bit,” Stewart said of the heavy subject matter. “And you’d have to be a bit of a sociopath to not stand in front of what Julianne did and be affected by it. Anything in that movie that you see, it’s so real. We were so honestly just there together.”
Sundance Selects has released the Clouds of Sils Maria trailer. Directed by Olivier Assayas’ and starring Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart, the film revolves around an aging actress (Binoche) who is gearing up to star in a new production of the play that made her famous years ago, only this time she’ll be taking on the “older woman” role while a confident younger actress (Chloe Grace Moretz) tackles the lead. I’m getting a serious All About Eve vibe from this trailer, and that makes me very excited for this film, especially when I factor in Perri’s highly positive review from the New York Film Festival.
Hit the jump to check out the Clouds of Sils Maria trailer. The film opens April 10th.
Well, hello Kristen Stewart!
The actress was a showstopper tonight at the New York screening for her new film Still Alice when she showed up to the red carpet in this stunning little number by Roksanda.
K.Stew turned heads in this sleeveless sheer black silk Ellsworth dress with cobalt blue and black piping from the Spring/Summer 2015 Runway Collection that gave a glimpse at her black bra and skirt. Stewart added a bright coral belt for a pop of color and showed off a sultry smokey eye.
Seriously, she looks amazing.
Kristen Stewart may look like a badass, but she doesn’t always feel like one.
Recently, Salon’s deputy entertainment editor Anna Silman paid the 24-year-old Still Alice actress a compliment, saying, “You are kind of a hero to people, in a way. A lot of people admire what they see as your give-no-f–ks attitude.” The comment surprised Stewart, who replied, “I’m like, actually, ‘No one gives a f–k like me. No one gives more of a f–k than me.’ It’s just ironic to me. I’m always like, ‘Really?'”
Who could blame her for being wary of the spotlight?
Stewart has been a tabloid target since ever since Twilight was released in November 2008. “I have not always been completely comfortable being shoved into the brightest, most blinding spotlight you can imagine,” the star admitted. “That was always tough, but on the other side of it, what I do, I love that.”
With awards season just kicking off, early Oscar favorite Julianne Moore, who won a Golden Globe on Sunday, stops by today to discuss her latest movie “Still Alice.” By her side? Gal pal and co-star Kristen Stewart. The pair turn in dynamic performances in the story about a renowned linguistics professor diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. Watch live as Moore and Stewart discuss their dramatic new project with AOL BUILD.
“Still Alice” comes to theaters Friday, January 16.
Kristen Stewart has a come a long way since the “Twilight” franchise that launched her fame into the stratosphere. The hit series only wrapped two years ago, and already Stewart has distanced herself from the films that made her name by appearing in a number of smaller projects this year that prove her worth as an actress.
She kicked off 2014 by wowing in the Sundance Guantanamo Bay drama “Camp X-Ray,” soon followed by Cannes where she held her own opposite Juliette Binoche in Olivier Assayas’ latest “Clouds of Sils Maria.” That project drew career-best raves for Stewart, and the goodwill continued when her latest film, “Still Alice,” screened in Toronto where it was swiftly acquired by Sony Pictures Classics for distribution. In the devastating drama, Stewart plays Lydia, a struggling actress and daughter to a renowned linguistics professor (Julianne Moore) struggling with early onset Alzheimers. It’s Moore’s picture, but Stewart leaves a distinct mark as a young woman forced to cope with inevitable tragedy. The film was directed by partners Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland. The former is living with ALS.

You hear that? That’s the sound of millions of Twilight fans collectively freaking out. Lionsgate just announced that they will be releasing an epic extended editions triple feature on Blu-ray and DVD January 13th, 2015, giving fans the opportunity to relieve their favorite moments and discover some new ones in the all-new extended editions. Hit the jump to find out what to expect from the new triple feature edition.
The collection will include the definitive editions of Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse. All three films have been re-edited to include deleted scenes, bringing the fans all-new extended versions of the film. It’s kind of a bummer that the Breaking Dawn films aren’t included in this edition, because they’re obviously planning to have fans buy more later. Not to mention the Breaking Dawn supercut director Bill Condon told Steve about at TIFF. But honestly if a Breaking Dawn Part 2 extended edition arrives I’ll be all over it. That movie is damn good fun and I’ve watched more times than I care to admit.
