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 knew Julianne Moore way before they filmed their new indie drama Still Alice.
“I’ve known her for a number of years [because] I worked with her husband [Bart Freundlich] on a movie that I did when I was really little called Catch That Kid,” Stewart told me last night at the Still Alice screening at the AFI presented by Audi film festival.
She was just 10 years old when Freundlich directed her in the 2004 crime comedy co-starring future High School Musical star Corbin Bleu.
In Still Alice, Stewart plays the daughter of a woman with Alzheimer’s (Moore).
Back in September, we told you about The Storytellers — New Voices of The Twilight Saga, a campaign from the creators of “the “Twilight” film series, Women In Film, Facebook, Lionsgate, Tongal, and Volvo Cars to highlight up-and-coming female filmmakers by creating short movies based on Stephenie Meyer’s fictional world.
Now, MTV has an exclusive video featuring some of the actresses and filmmakers who are participating in the contest. Kristen Stewart, Octavia Spencer “Frozen” co-director Jennifer Lee, and more will all play a part in judging the “Twilight”-inspired shorts.
Kristen Stewart is showing her loyal Twilight fans lots of love.
The actress expressed her appreciation for all the Twi-hards who have supported her over the years during an interview with E! News at the screening of her latest film, Clouds of Sils Maria, at the New York Film Festival.
“It’s absolutely reciprocated on my end,” the 24-year-old brunette said. “I feel that energy from them as well and I really appreciate it. I don’t appreciate it as if I own it. I feel like we share it. They’re rad.”
In addition to expanding her fan base, the Camp X-Ray star also recently admitted that the vampire franchise had a positive effect on her career. “On an exceptionally obvious note, it’s opened a lot of doors, but I’ve become who I am because of that. It was five years of my life,” she said.
While it’s been nearly two years since the final Twilight flick hit theaters, the wildly popular franchise still holds a special place in many fans’ hearts.
So when E! News caught up with Kristen Stewart at the NYC screening of her upcoming flick Camp X-Ray, we had to ask the 24-year-old stunner to share the most profound way her life has changed now that the Twilight franchise is officially in the rear view mirror.
“It’s difficult to answer that question,” the Clouds of Sils Maria star admitted before carefully taking a moment to reflect. “On an exceptionally obvious note, it’s opened a lot of doors, but I’ve become who I am because of that. It was five years of my life.”
IFC Films has released a new Camp X-Ray trailer online. The film stars Kristen Stewart as a young private stationed at Guantanamo Bay, and revolves around the complex relationship that develops between her and a foreign detainee, played by A Separation star Peyman Maadi. I’m glad to see Stewart using Twilight and Snow White and the Huntsman as a springboard to do a collection of more indie material, which also includes Clouds of Sils Maria and Still Alice. Adam saw Camp X-Ray at Sundance, and while he said it’s a bit of a mixed bag, he praised Stewart’s performance, and I’m interested to see what she did with this material.
Hit the jump to check out the new Camp X-Ray trailer. The film also stars Lane Garrison, John Carrol Lynch, and Cory Michael Smith. Camp X-Ray opens in theaters and VOD on October 17th.
EXCLUSIVE: Joe Dante has jumped into the zombie world with Burying The Ex, the Voltage Pictures’ romantic comedy starring Anton Yelchin and Ashley Greene and world premiering Thursday out of competition the Venice Film Festival. Greene plays an ex-girlfriend who dies in a freak accident but rises from the dead and expects her relationship with her boyfriend (Yelchin) to continue as normal — like if Dante’s Gremlins were clingy significant others. Problem is the boyfriend is ready to move on with True Detective‘s Alexandra Daddario. Check out the clip.
The Twilight movie series has wrapped for good – but its spirit lives on in the friendships formed over several movies together.
Actresses Ashley Greene and Nikki Reed were reunited Thursday night at the Heineken U.S. Open Kickoff Party at the Dream Downtown hotel in N.Y.C., and they were excited to catch up with each other.
Both stars travel, move between coasts and take on varied projects, such as Reed’s current directorial project for ESPN, Nine for IX, so it’s a rare moment when they find time to reconnect, the pair told PEOPLE.
“We worked so closely for so long and it’s strange because you become this family unit, and the series ended and you’re pulled [apart],” Reed explained of the cast, which included Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. “You kind of hope that you cross paths, and we all keep in touch like via text or email or whatever, but it’s not often we all get to be together.”
