Is it just me, or does Kristen Stewart seem supremely irksome?
I mean, in terms of the ladies who have made me say WTF, Kristen is pretty low on the totem pole. She's not a total hot mess. Mostly, she just strikes me as a stoner babe with a pretty face who talks nonsensically about things like driving from London to Russia (see the above Letterman clip - classic.)
But sometimes her too-cool-for-schoolness just rubs me the wrong way. I mean, come on, she's gets cast as Bella in the Twilight series films and in this interview blabs on about how "it really caters...it really facilitates work that I love" while snarkily saying the second film in the series (New Moon) is "very epic."
Please girl, like you can just sit around now, filing your nails and waiting for Jim Jarmusch to take your calls because you deigned to play a teen girl filled with vampire lust? You should be kissing Stephenie Meyer's Mormon butt! Does it kill you that much to have to be in a popular movie?
She's always rubbing her eyes and doing this weird affected stutter and acting like she just woke up and can't be bothered. In interviews, she acts calculatedly bored and says odd things like, "I'm entirely self-indulgent" and "I definitely have a future in academics, but it's just not really a conventional one."
The truth is, I shouldn't be so harsh on Miss Stewart. When I was 18, I acted the very same way. Only I wasn't banking major dollars and appearing on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. So frankly, I think I'm entitled to a little WTF.
