Just Another Sign That Acting Isn’t The Right Career For Kristen Stewart

Anyone else starting to get the impression that Kristen Stewart may not be cut out for acting? Sure she may like the idea of reciting lines in front of a camera, but she certainly can’t stand the idea of being famous. And unfortunately for Kristen, a successful acting career and fame go hand-in-hand these days.

Yes, older, more established actresses like Meryl Streep can fly under the radar when they’re not on set. But Kristen’s no Meryl Streep and if she plans to survive as an actress of this generation, she needs to accept the publicity or reject the career.

Or at least stop acting like her career’s following the plot of a very special Law & Order: SVU episode. Between her classic “fame rapes me” quote to this new
“fame murders me” quote, I’m starting to think she’s a little melodramatic. Which I suppose isn’t the worst quality for an actress.

This weekend, the fame will murder me quote surfaced from an upcoming e-book by Talia Soghomonian called Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner — In Their Own Words.

She told Talia that she fears fame will one day lead to her demise — and unless she’s Lilo-ing out more than we know, I highly doubt that.

Nowadays it’s harder because everyone is on Facebook and everyone knows where you are all the time, and everyone’s twittering. Like I’m going to die because somebody is going to say where I am and somebody is going to kill me. Someone’s going to twitter my location and then it’s going to be like, boom.’

While I won’t delve too far into the fact that K.Stew needs to get up on her Twitter grammar (“someone going to TWEET my location…”), I do believe she’s starting to sound a little paranoid.

It’s quite the leap to go from a crazy stalker playing a personal game of foursquare with her life to someone murdering her. But then again if she truly believes her fame will put her life in jeopardy, maybe she should switch careers.

It’s not too late for her to go to college or see a therapist or gain some perspective on her life. She’s famous, she’s not living in a war-torn third world country. If fame makes her this miserable, she can leave Hollywood.

I think we can all agree Twilights not worth dying over. Nor is Robert Pattinson, at least until he starts washing his hair more often.

    Are you effing kidding me? Nobody is Meryl Streep, but Meryl Streep. Kristen’s a very good, and award-winning actress whose life has been threatened on several occasions by manical “fans.” That’s why she has security around her at all times. If you’re getting pictures of yourself with the eyes burned out, that’s not paranoia; that’s her reality. By the way, Robert Pattinson said the same thing on a talk show about him being killed and laughing hysterically about it. He said that Zac Efron is much more culturally relevant. Is he paranoid? If you’re constantly telling someone, “I don’t want my picture taken. No. Get away from me,” Then, they do what you asked them not to do anyway, is it a stretch to think that may feel like rape? Walk a mile in this girl’s shoes and tell me you wouldn’t feel the same way. Meryl Streep has never been in a franchise with the mania behind it that Twilight has. Until that happens, it’s a stupid comparison on many levels.

    • Jenni

      So if she truly believes this job will kill her, she should quit. I think if any of my friends came to me and said my career will lead to my demise, I’d say you should switch careers then.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Everyone’s career leads to their death, one way or another. IF she believed it she would already have quit. So it was a figure of speech.

    • Worried for Kristen

      @Jenni: I don’t think it is her acting career that will kill her I think it is what she is linked with and his radical irrational fans that could kill her. Look at John Lennon. Would anyone have ever thought Mark David Chapman would have shot him because he was linked to The Beatles and Chapman wanted to acquire Lennon’s fame. Kristen Stewart is in the same boat with some of Pattinson’s psychotic fans thinking if they got her out of the picture they could acquire Robert Pattinson has their boyfriend. Not all of his fans are like this but there are enough for the threat to be taken seriously. I don’t know if any of you are old enough to remember the TV show My Sister Sam with Rebecca Schaeffer. She was stalked and shot to death by a deranged fan when the show became popular so this goes to prove there are those out there who live in another world and should be taken seriously when they send a threat. Rob has done nothing to discouraging his fans from attacking Kristen for being with him so they think it is acceptable to do this to win him over. They think they are protecting him and supporting his emotional needs by striking at Kristen. He encourages them every time he snaps a picture with them or goes up to them at premieres and hugs them. He allowed their actions to become acceptable when he didn’t speak out about the hatred his fans were displaying towards Kristen. Even if all of them didn’t listen to him I think some might have and this hatred would have calmed down to a degree. I believe though he has gained confidence as an actor through the adoration his Twilight fans have shown him while they tear down Kristen’s confidence in her ability as an actor and expressing herself in public in the confident unrebellious way she used to be before Pattinson. Maybe that is why she went to Rupert for the cast said he was always complimenting her on set. When she called herself a miserable c**t she was just repeating what I have seen Rob’s fans call her on several of the fan sites and gossip sites. She has taken to tearing herself down since they have and Rob allowed it. I know when he asked his fans to make Cosmo have a great premiere by buying 8 tickets each and they did it to show Rob their adoration for him it had to have been a big ego bost for him to show David Crononberg what he could do with his fans. Watching Kristen and Rob interact now is sad for she looks insecure with herself and he looks over confident in himself to the point he does not want her actions or her presence to bring him down. This is what I saw in the ET Online video that says they are together again. I know some here will hate me but Kristen needs to get counseling and get away from Pattinson for good if she will ever be the happy Kristen we use to see before Twilight hit. Sorry for the long comment but just had to get this out of my head.

    • ss

      EXACTLY!! ….I couldn’t agree with you more. And I said it too, about KS and RP should go their seperate ways. She needs to focus on herself, for awhile. I think she would be in a much better place with herself. I think she lost herself in this relationship, because of all the scrutiny and hate she got just for being RP GF. I would hope he knows how much baggage (unwanted baggage) per say, he comes with. But if you truely love someone, you endure. But at what price? Sometimes it works, sometimes it just becomes too much. Hopefully, something good comes out of this situation for the both of them. Hopefully they both grow from this and things work out for them.

    • Worried for Kristen

      I think she has endured so much more than any other girl would go through for someone you loved. I would like to see him give back (in public) to Kristen some of the attention and love she has endured being his girlfriend. In the video she was trying to comfort him but I didn’t see him giving her any comforting touches. I wonder some time if he knows what kind of negative bagage his fans can be for anyone in a relationship with him? Did you see the interview Emma Watson gave on Ellen? She discussed how Brit guys differed from American guys when it came to relationships. Emma also said that this is why she wouldn’t date Brit guys. She said the first two months they ignore you in public even though you are in a relationship. Then they are mean to you before they want to get it on but it is done in a very reserve manner. Sounds like Rob to me and how he acts in this relationship with Kristen. Wants to get it on without anyone knowing they are GF/BF. I have yet heard him say she is his girlfriend.

    • lillicat

      MS was probably accosted and knocked down on the tarmac the way KS was a year or so ago. That was before the “rape” comment and the security guys, and shooting the bird at these losers.

  • http://www.facebook.com/cocoapurl Cocoa Purl

    Also, she doesn’t have to “tighten up on her twitter grammer, ” the bastion of proper grammer that it is, because she’s not on Twitter or any other social networking site. It’s not too late for the person who wrote this article to go to college, seek a therapist, and actually write about something that’s relevant to the world because she’s not Bob Woodward or Carl Bernstein. She’s writing a crappy blog for a crappy gossip site and isn’t very good at it. Maybe she should choose a different career.

    • Jenni

      Oh Cocoa! I love our playful morning banter. You keep me on my toes! Did you still want to grab lunch this week? I found the cutest little cafe around the corner that I think you would just l-o-v-e!

  • ss

    As much as KS may sound melodramatic……she isn’t. She has been threatened alot. No joke. And this was WAY before the cheating scandal. The reason being was (and ALWAYS is) because she was dating RP. Girl got alot of s**t over the past 4 years, just because RP was her boyfriend. That is the only reason why people dislike/hate her more than ever, is because she cheated on RP. People aren’t angry because of poor Liberty and her kids. It’s ONLY because of “poor” RP. I like RP and KS, but damn, I felt bad for KS. She got tons of hate, because she got the guy everyone wanted.Yes, I know KS attitude and some of things she said and how she acted, rubbed people the wrong way. It didn’t help her. And Even me being a KS fan, she got on my nerves! lol BUT the amount of hate (and even more threats) she got for what happened, wasn’t fair. So what she is saying is very true. She isn’t being paranoid, that’s one thing for sure…it’s her reality. And yes, before anyone says, other celebs get threatened or stalked too,all the time. That is true, but I’m not talking about other celebs.

    • Jenni

      I believe she gets stalked and I believe she gets threatened, but unlike other actresses she seems much more affected by it. Whether that’s because her threats are more extreme and more often or because she takes them more personally, I don’t know. But do you think if she really feels this way, this career is right for her?

    • Petranella

      What might not be the best career for her is making any more movies which require loads of press interviews. public appearances and photo shoots. But then if she goes the indie only route–which Shia LaBoeuf claims he is doing–I’m sure she would feel “obligated” to the Director etc.. to publicize a film with her “star” power, that the film would not otherwise receive without her in it!!

      So KStew is currently between the proverbial rock and hard place imo.

    • Jenni

      I think as long as you’re making movies, you’re going to be expected to promote them. So it’s up to her to weight that out — whether she likes acting enough to deal with the craziness or she’d rather leave it all behind.

    • Petranella

      Jenni: Some movies require much more publicity than other movies. They all require some, esp. if you are a big star. But even huge stars don’t spend tons of time on their indies as they do higher profile higher budget films.

    • Jenni

      So you think she should just stick to indies? Maybe that’s the best compromise for her.

    • Petranella

      If I were an adviser I may recommend that for a while she does projects that do not require the massive and frequent public commitments, as has been the case with Twilight. Or even being “Kristen Stewart Inc”., which I feel her real advisers were going for– the first half of this year.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      She will do what she will do.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Big promotions cost big money. If your production costs are high then you will spend more money promoting to make sure you do well. It is the promoting that seels the movie. The advertising, not the quality. Same with cars, books,clothes, perfumes,and with us women on the market. We’ve got to emit “floating signs” of HOT to get the guy, cause signs of hot are what he finds hot. got it now.

    • Petranella

      yes, I should have said your first three sentences. Also included is that Big budget promotions means these world wide pronotional appearances as Hollywood depends so much now on overseas box-office.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Promoting is one thing. Insanity of twi fans is another.

    • Petranella

      LOL really true. Very demanding fan base.

    • Chancellor

      @abbeysbooks: That is so true. I watched the interview she gave the Reelz Channel, MTV, and the Insider about the SWATH movie and she seemed confident, made perfect sense in the words she chose to express herself and seemed like her old self before Twilight and the Twihards started attacking her. I enjoyed listening and watching this Kristen giving her interview to the media. She seemed excited about the part she played and confident in explaining her role in the movie. I think a lot of her tough guy attitude is a mask she uses to protect herself from Rob’s fans. I have been around children who try to act tough because they don’t want others to know what their life is really like or how they feel so they use the tough act to ward off people. I think this is what Kristen is like for she has a low self estem since Twilight fans started attacking her for everything. I also think Rob is not wary enough when it comes to those who compliment him because thay want to use him for their own personal gains which will not benefit him in the future.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      I agree with you. Kristen is a poet/philosopher and an actress in the symbolic Order of Seduction. She has chosen a path less traveled. The twilight interviews are silly, done by stupid people, with a contempt for their viewers and audience, which the twi fans have earned and deserve. I agree about Rob but right now I have my plate full with Kristen and cannot devote the same amount of time to him. He needs it worse, but she deserves it more.

    • ss

      Exactly. Good post.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      She is fine. Why are you and jenni writing about her as if she is going to break in pieces.

    • Petranella

      I may advise something like that to her, but don’t know enough details of her situation, so ultimately it is not for me to say one way or another.

    • Jenni

      She’s the one who’s telling us that she’s scared the media’s going to murder her. So it’s time for her to make a decision about what kind of life she wants — one where she gets to act but lives in fear or one where she stops acting and doesn’t live in fear

    • Petranella

      Date on interview Jenni?

    • Jenni

      It’s from an e-book that has interviews with the cast from 2008-2012. So we’re dealing with quite the range of time.

    • Petranella

      Thank you, I want to keep scrupulous record of pre and post scandal interviews and quotes. Many media outlets are mixing it up for “full on affect” as you know!

    • lillicat

      Is this the one that has just been published for download only? If so, I just downloaded it. I didn’t find out anything I hadn’t heard before.

    • ss

      My only thing is, is there any other actress out there that receives the same amount of criticism, scrutiny and hate per say, as KS does? I just haven’t heard of any other actresses getting the same crap as K. Im not trying to be all like, KS is so innocent or anything like that. But you have to admit, the scrutiny she gets (besides the stuff she brings upon herself in a way) is crazy. Seems like she loves acting, but just dislikes the “celebrity”. I think, if.she wasn’t getting all this excessive amount of hate (and threats) I think she would probably handle the fame and celebrity much better. I don’t think she would as nervous and maybe even, not as awkward as she is. Idk. I mean, after years of threats, it would make anyone paranoid. I know it would start messing with my head after awhile.

    • Jenni

      Yes, I agree with you. I can’t imagine getting all these threats day in and day out. (I also think she should hire someone to screen everything and only show her fan mail that’s not threatening her life.)

      But since she can’t go back in time and stop it, she has to decide what’s best for her. I don’t think it’s acting.

    • ss

      I think KS could continue acting…but she needs to take it down a notch with all the “bad ass, tough girl act” (or whatever you want to call it) first. I do believe, that is her real personality. That will help her immensely first off. She pushes that image so much, that it’s right in your face, and that is all you see and notice. You can’t see past that, because it’s so front and center. So therefore, all the “good” things about her take a backseat and people won’t want to look past the “image”. She could keep her rebel attitude, but she should make herself more “approachable”, but not lose her edge. People will respect her alot more and take her more seriously. People won’t be waiting with pitch forks (so quickly), when she does something stupid. And dare I say it…maybe RP and her need to walk away from eachother….maybe she needs to be on her own.

    • Jenni

      Dare you say it? Prepare for the pitchforks to be aimed at you. But totally agree, she can’t have it every which way. The “bad ass, tough girl” act continues to attract the wrong kind of attention for her.

    • ss

      I was a little nervous, when writing that! I was thinking of all the awful, damaging names I could be called, that would ruin my life and I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed. *Gasp!* A b***h, nonsten, hater, troll amongst other things. I got one good thing going for me, at least no one can use my name, to make up new derogatory words! *whew*

    • lillicat

      You won’t get that nonsense at this board. It might be better for Kris’ acting career if she and Rob took a breather from each other, but they are young and my gut tells me that they are really into each other right now ( as in this most important thing). This is just a feeling and I could be totally wrong.

    • Irish Girl

      Acting is probably fine for her. It’s the celebrity part she’s not so good at. She’s tried to handle things like a “normal” person, and she hasn’t accepted that that just won’t work. She’s just too high profile. At least Pattinson clued in a lot sooner and built an extremely good team around himself.

      She really needs to take a page out of his book and stop trying to be this bohemian rebel or whatever. I think that’s part of the reason she got into this summer’s mess in the first place. There were some things she did that were not only baffling, but just downright wrong, and really hurt her.

    • Jenni

      I guess it’s the acceptance part she’s struggling with — but I don’t get why her team hasn’t clued her in yet that there’s no third option. You’re famous, you’re going to get attention…as in you’re no longer normal.

    • Irish Girl

      Bingo.

    • ss

      KS should hire you…

    • Irish Girl

      *snort* I don’t belong to a big firm with an acronym for a name.

    • lillicat

      Hasn’t she always said that she really wanted to be a screenwriter?

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      It’s not either / or.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Why? You don’t like her acting?

    • Petranella

      She said she thinks acting is not the best career choice for her, in her life, given her personality.

    • ss

      I know you weren’t asking me (lol) but I think she COULD be good. She needs to get her acting up to par with the hype that surrounds her. Carey M, Jemnifer L, Emma S, Emma W, that chic from GWTDT (new one)etc. She has alot to prove, still. Im a big fan of hers, but she needs to improve greatly. I hate to compare the two, but Jennifer L, kills hers in the acting. And I am not a fan of JLaw. As much as it pains me to say this, kS always appears with the same expression on her face. There us no emotion. She was good in Speak, Into the Wild, Adventureland. And RP is improving, greatly. (he ain’t anywhere near Gossling, even JGL etc) Well he did good Cosmo…lol and if that is what to come in his next projects, well then, RP will be a better actor than her. And that pains me to say that, very much. Lol I guess, I root for the underdog per say.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      She is a very different kind of actress (I like the word actress) and she is moving into a way less traveled. I agree with you about the others being better, but I am not comparing her with anyone else. She is just different and acting to her is her way of carefully understanding where she is going. The others are more normalized, less contemplative, and they appear more finished. Kristen has chosen roles that are not wild departures, more like carefully picking her way. Rob has chosen departures but always with inferior directors. She is not one to use her face to manipulate your emotions. And she has not had roles demanding a variety of characters. She is just slowly going at it at her own pace in a contemplative way. She is a rare treasure.

      Rob would be much better if he didn’t think directors knew more than he did. Well Herzog does and Herzog chose him for his own purposes. And if you know Herzog and his work you can make very good intuitive guesses as to why he picked Rob.

    • Petranella

      Well for ONE thing, and I do mean only one thing against her–Look at her who her boyfriend ‘s image is :Heart throb-sex symbol, golden boy. And as you mention this above.

    • ss

      So you think KS would be better without him?

    • Petranella

      I don’t know that I think it, but I have thought about it, yes. due to RP’s psycho fans. But it looks like they are together at present? so I say enjoy the show and hope that KS does not get harassed or worse.

    • lillicat

      Read any of the comments under articles of some of the HW “bad girls”-LL, AB, BS to name a few- all around the same age. With all the schenagians they pull they don’t get half the cruel, violent, hateful comments that Kristen does.

    • ss

      Right!

    • Petranella

      Think about those actresses you mention and KS; it is easily seen that KS has NEVER been papped passed out drunk in a car, stumbling around drunk on Sunset, busted for drugs, DUI, crashing cars or trashing hotel rooms, or getting into drunken brawls. YET, still all this venom of criticism for KS–who lays low and avoids the photographers as much as possible. I find it hypocritical and messed up!

    • Chancellor

      @Aitch Slavic: I think she gets all the hatred because of who she is linked with. I don’t think she would be as harrassed if she was dating anyone else like Kellun Lutz, Zac Efron, Josh Hutchinson etc. Rob is the reason she is getting the negative attention she gets but she doesn’t have to do anything for it except breath. His fans watch and know everything he does and with who. They follow everthing written about him no matter if it is true or not they believe it. He gets more publicity from his fans than any other actor gets and that was said in the New York Times interview by David Crononberg. He said he cast Rob as Eric becaus of his followers and his pretty face. Rob looked upset when he said it and asked is that the only reason. Then David Crononberg said he liked how Rob acted in Little Ashes which didn’t even make theaters. Kristen is followed because of her relationship with Rob. I think if she dated anyone else the attention from the media would not be as numerous and critical towards her.

    • Petranella

      I agree and I will write more later.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      She is an excruciatingly sensitive person, and this is her strength in acting. With a tougher shell she will be like the rest of the cloned beauties. Kristen vibrates in a role. She trembles and shakes in extreme emotional scenes. She can be defiant, cool, assured, and scared. But she must feel it to act it. If she gives this ability up to satisfy all the would be mothers around here, then she will lose her edge.

    • ss

      KS can still be her “true” self, without selling out. She can still more “approachable” but not lose her edge. She just has got to figure it out. It’s all about balance. If she can figure it out, then I think she will be in much better place. It’s like, being very confident but being humble about it. She also has put out there her other “sides” of herself. To show/share what else she is about, not just only her “rel” personality/image. What other qualities, does she have? What else is interesting and intriguing about her? Is her “rebel” image/personality, all that she has? I believe she has many other (good) qualities, to show. There is more to her than that, just that. I just don’t believe that, that’s all she has got.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Humble? Hell no! She is really very much a philosopher in her intuitiveness. She says things that indicate a superb intelligence that is unique and Discourse breaking, for which she will have to gather slings and arrows. But just about everything she says and does breaks the lockstep rules.

      People know what they say (do).
      They frequently even know shy they say what they say (do).
      But what they don’t know is what they say (do) does. - Michel Foucault: The Order of Things.

      This is where she is at. I see no one on these boards that has the slightest idea of this or appreciation of it. Everyone, without exception, is stuck in the dominating Discourse of classical Hegelian dialectical thinking. And it wasn’t that kind of thinking that broke this thing wide open.

    • ss

      Is that the only reason, people like her, is because she is a “rebel”? Add a true fan of hers, I actually would like to know more about her, besides her “rebel” image. She is very smart and would like to see more of that in her interviews. it doesn’t matter what anyone says, her “image” or whatever she is putting out there, isn’t helping her current situation. And it is times like these, she needs to evaluate, what she wants to be known for. And if that is what she only wants to known for, then she is doing a mighty great job at it. And that will be the only thing she is known for. Because many times it overshadows what she is trying to do…to become a serious actress, and too be taken seriously. And as hard as she pushes that “badass” image, she needs to push herself into taking acting classes, to get better. Good acting, is what is going to keep her career long in HW. Its all about balance. Too much of one thing, isn’t always good.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Acting classes no no no. Studying with a master, yes yes yes. Since Grotowski is dead there are only 2 others I know of that are in the great league. Yoshi Oida and Blanka Ziska. They are the only two I would recommend.

      If you really want to know more about her then I invite you to read what I have written about her, which is considerable. This one might interest you. http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/2012/09/kristen-auditions-for-furious-in.html?zx=75d901c5813507f9

    • lillicat

      In the latest intervews done since July especially, I have noticed she seems to get exasperated easily. It is at this point she almost doesn’t seem to care what comes out. The interviewer has pissed her off so she makes an “off the wall” statement that will be taken the wrong way. I think she does this on purpose. As abbeysbooks said ,she is extremely intelligent, and her mind is quick.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Her interviewers are so stupid. The armpit thing is an inside joke to twi fans only most didn’t get it.

    • ss

      I understand that, but it doesn’t take a intelligent person to say something considered either stupid or brash. Or to say something to piss someone off. Lets stop trying to make it when KS either “sounds ” stupid or even brash, that it is her being intelligent. Because it doesn’t. Make it seem, as she is trying too hard. She gets’s alot s**t, and her fans (including myself) when people make a big deal out of what she says or does. She is an intelligent person, she needs to use her brain more. Andlet people see what else, she has got going on about herself. If she is going to be a badass, she she should be smarter about it. If anyone thinks, that by something crazy, makes you a badass….well that is unfortunately not the case.

    • ss

      *She gets alot of s**t, and her fans (including myself) get mad when people….

    • lillicat

      Isn’t what you are saying about Kris breaking the lockstep rules how she will make a statement that will blow you away in it’s intuitiveness, but you are not sure that she realizes what she just said, or the enormity of it?

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      She just cuts through the bullshit and that infuriates people. So what if she kissed Rupert. So fucking what. She must feel in prison after playing Mary Lou’s freedom. http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/2011/04/in-defense-of-kristen-stewart-on.html

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      yes.

    • Petranella

      I agree with you and nicely stated.
      KS is young and still developing a persona, identity, values, like most people do some much of in their 20s. Your 20s–your first real blast of autonomous adulthood. Negotiating career and more serious relationships.
      Hell, we never stop growing. I’m 50 and really changed a lot in the last just 5 years.
      We will stay tuned for KS development and changes. And how much she “chooses” to share and what she may not reveal. Should be interesting.

    • curioushairedgal

      I only now come to this article and it’s like fucking lecture on abnormality. NOT of the abnormally obsessive fans, but on the abnormality of the person who just IS herself.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Ah but this is exactly how the Foucauldian Grid of power/knowledge/capital works to apply poser to enforce normality. It is wonderful to watch it in slo mo action here. The article is one way of doing it, the comments another. I see how the masses line up to enforce normality. If I didn’t know better I might spend time in the trenches arguing with them all day to defend Kristen. But that’s not what she needs. She is above the trench warfare and I need to get out of the trenches also. Stop commenting here unless I link to mine. Gossip Cop puts me in moderation for linking. Meaning they want everyone to stay ON THEIR TURF.! Well I know how to play that game. I went to boot camp with robsessed. adifferent forest had to change their software commenting system to prohibit it. But if you are not on disqus and not on twitter, you aren’t a playa anymore. Just another incestuous religious sect that is dying out.

      The commenting boards are yesterday now. twitter is what is relevant. I have found this out in my expose of the pics. Never before has any post of mine gone up so far so fast. Even my 25,000 one of Kristen and Michael Angarano and Rob did not move this fast.

      So I have the feedback I wanted. I know the way to go. And I didn’t need a blueprint, or an accredited (another one OMG) course to get there. I didn’t need to buy some package from some guru and follow the instructions. In other words I did it in the Symbolic Order of Seduction, not the Order of Production. And that has led me to see that Kristen Stewart is an actress in the Symbolic Order of Seduction not one in the Order of Production. This is what makes her exceptional and shows her warts from time to time. So fucking what. This is exactly what drove Richard Burton absolutely mad when he worked with Elizabeth Taylor after they were married. He was a trained Shakespearean actor, an exceptionally fine one. She was all intuitive genius.

      With this article Jenni shows just how easy it is to lose a compass. Or that there’s not compass to lose at all. From speculating on PR relationship hopping onto passing judgement on career choices and about what makes a serious and not serious life threat.
      Riding the story at whatever cost, that e-book will sell well for sure, with all the eager mouths awaiting.Brainwashed into entitlement. It’s making me feel awfully prejudiced tonight, against brainwashers of the world united.Won’t be back.

    • Jenni

      First of all I sold my compass (and my soul) when I took this job. So it’s not lost by any means! It just currently belongs to someone else. Second of all, I miss you already.

      Noooo, I won’t tell her it’s not either/or (ha!), but that you can ‘sell’ your compass and have it too.PR posts were fun, no, I won’t tell how it went down, I don’t even know, I can only speculate.Speculation is fun.

      Yeah NO ONE should tell her!

      LOL!

    • lillicat

      I think she and Rob are giving this some serious thought now. They both love acting, but is the craft worth everything that comes with it? Neither of them seem to be hung up on money. Perhaps they can figure a way to stay involved with movies, but out of the limelight.She said at TIFF that she is looking foward to taking some time off to figure what she wants to do next. Smart move, if you ask me.

    • Chancellor

      @Jenni: It seemed like she enjoyed acting until she got linked with Robert Pattinson. She always looked happy at premieres for her other movies that didn’t have Pattinson in them. Her interviews were always very good as well for she didn’t lose her train of thought, looked confident, and didn’t stutter through them until she got with Pattinson. Then she got worst with every movie interview she gave because of how his fans scrutinized her for what she said, picked her words apart and took them out of context to mean something negative just to make her unequal to Pattinson. I have also noticed over the years a lot of the women interviewers she has had attack her in the interview or take her words and twist them before printing the article. They also do this with RP’s words to make it look like he dissed Kristen. He brought this up in an interview where he said the writer twisted his words when he was talking about the type of actress Kristen was. I don’t think she has ever had to endure the hatred she has endured since people started thinking they were dating. I really don’t think other actors have as extrem acting female fans as Rob has and some go beyond just the normal fan characteristics to one who fantasizes that he actually would go for them if Kristen was permanently out of the picture. Have you ever read some of his fan sites? You would think he was a god to them. I have never seen fans this radical. Not even Elvis or the Beatles had fans like Pattinson has. How many fans have you seen post on youtube them crying an cursing an actor like Rob’s fans have done at Kristen? Her threats are more extrem because the ones making them don’t care if they get caught like the girl in London that security took off after she pulled a knife when Kristen was signing autographs and told Kristen she would slit her throat. They had footage of them taking her out so it was true not gossip. Rob’s fans are everywhere and they are more extrem than any fans other actors have delt with. I think she has been very strong to put up with what she has over the four years of hell they have put her through and yes they do stalk her along with the paps. I can’t believe you are saying the above. You need to visit his fans sites and read some of the things they say about him and how they plan on removing her from the picture. Go back to 2009 when it started. Other actors have said they wouldn’t want to be her because of the fans’ reactions to her and Pattinson. Just the hatred she has gotten by mail and the social network would be enough to make anyone move to an island no one knew of. Don’t be so quick to judge her until you have seen what she has gone through over the years.

    • Jenni

      I think the Beatles is a bad example….

    • curioushairedgal

      Sensationalizing a statement about factual potential danger, or only about a reality of a certain famous person’s life as ‘melodrama’ is a bad example as well, honestly. A bad example of how it becomes an issue of being overly melodramatic (when in reality she is followed, hounded even, spied on and actually threatened) instead of an issue why all of these facts from her life are regarded as expected part of fame. She has no issues with fame. She, as any person in her position would, has issues with what has become more than fame, what has become a sort of claim on someone’s life, that is being realized when her location becomes globally known, when every gesture, nod, smile, lack of smile, becomes a topic of global discussion and judgement.
      You read this statement of hers as melodramatic. But what about reading her statement as exposing a part of her reality that she has to deal with on daily basis. You say “It’s quite the leap to go from a crazy stalker playing a personal game of foursquare with her life to someone murdering her.” In Lennon’s case it was a very ‘personal game’ as well, wasn’t it? That ended up as no one could possibly envisage. Why is it then bad example to mention that, but not bad to actually send an article talking about a movie star revealing a very real, potentially dangerous fact into cyber space together with the message that it’s not all that serious.And that she should switch careers if she’s not up to it?!? What, now paper/cyber threats are part of the job and whoever can’t handle it should hit the road?!?
      Her ‘rape statement wasn’t ‘fame rapes me’. It was papz photographing is like rape. People taking stuff from you while abusing you and making money off of your back while they’re at it.
      It isn’t ‘fame murders me’, but there are real, living people out there who have threatened me. It’s not some oblique mass,but very concrete individuals crazy enough to send hate mail and actually threaten and stand in rows at premieres and know your house, your restaurant, your whatever is tweeted, and feeling completely *entitled* to it.
      Your article, and the one you linked, are about real, serious stuff that make a reality of one person. And believe me, coming from a war torn third-world country, I can see the similarities clearly from here. That you as the author of this article, and the one of the article you linked, find it just another celeb topic to opinionate on (while not even daring to delve deeper into the problematic of the fandom overstepping sane boundaries which is the crucial issue here) is, well, incredibly first world country thinking.

    • Petranella

      In an interview for the July issue of British Elle, Stewart said about some paparazzi photos of herself:

      “What you don’t see are the cameras shoved in my face and the bizarre intrusive questions being asked, or the people falling over themselves, screaming and taunting to get a reaction. The photos are so…

      “I feel like I’m looking at someone being raped.”

      But she quickly apologized, telling People mag.: “I really made an enormous mistake – clearly and obviously. And I’m really sorry about my choice of words… ‘Violated’ definitely would have been a better way of expressing the thought.”

      CHG–You made me want to post the infamous “rape” comment.

    • curioushairedgal

      It’s ok, not infamous,and I know she rephrased. Doesn’t make it less of a figurative rape though, doesn’t it, even if it’s called violation. All for the sake of political correctness. Janet would say Žižek would say political correctness is as fake as charity.

    • Petranella

      WHEN I say infamous I mean “infamous” lol Personally I know what the hell she meant.
      Johnny Depp made a rape comparison to photo shoots, he didn’t get quite the backlash, of course!

    • curioushairedgal

      Frankly, this reminded me of that whole ‘reproductive healthcare’ debate on rape, which would have been hilarious if it wasn’t actually sad. She just said how she felt it, that many are taking it cause they think they’re getting paid enough for it is another thing.
      And I have sth to disclose, went through your blog a bit, the one linked in your profile, there’s a cool article, can’t remember the date, by David Nair (not sure about name, all blurry today) about celeb culture. Enjoyed reading it. Hope it’s ok with u.
      BTW, said I won’t be back here, now can’t leave, typical.

    • curioushairedgal

      Yes, didn’t get to reply and I apologize.

      no problem. I could not find what I sent you in my sent mail box. take your time!

    • kidkennedy

      It’s not a PC issue.
      It’s a cluelessness issue.

    • curioushairedgal

      If I say I was mentally raped for four years by savages standing next to a tank on a hill and randomly shooting does that diminish the horror women I never will be and share only a place of origin with went through? How could those two things ever even compare? They’re incomparable, so one can never lessen the other.
      “The photos are…It’s like looking at someone being raped.” – like.looking.at.someone.being.raped. “Raped” as in violated.Not raped as in actually raped cause the closest K came to that was through acting (which makes her a bit more than your usual clueless in my mind but then again that’s just my cluelessness speaking).
      Claiming that one can only use certain words if it’s supported by authentic experience (PC issue),and that using them otherwise somehow takes away from (offends?) that authentic experience is like saying mothers can only know (as in understand and be understood by) mothers, Native American can only know Native American, Jews can only know Jews, African American can only know African American, Muslim only Muslim, war/rape/holocaust/victims can only know war/rape/holocaust victims respectively, old people only old people, deaf only deaf and blind only blind, and people in wheelchairs only other people in wheelchairs….
      Jolie’s In the Land of Blood and Honey was spat on here for these very reasons, that she better take her skinny drug addict ass home and amuse herself with adopting another kid cause she’s clueless as to what it meant to be raped by a soldier in war camp. And that there’s no way a Serb and a Muslim could ever fall in love cause Serbs can only know Serbs and Muslim can only know Muslim, and no mixed marriages please, stick with your own.
      We better all then just stick to our boxes. The boxes we claim exclusive right to, cause they define us.

      Or in the words of Erykah Badou, where did the love go.
      And hi.

    • kidkennedy

      “I feel like I am looking at someone being raped”….she is speaking of photographs of herself no? She must have felt that she had just been raped. I don’t know how else to interpret that. How can she know what she would look like after being raped? A sensible comparison?…no.
      Thoughtless and insensitive….yes. I care about thoughtfulness and sensitivity. She does too, lest she would not have made a sincere apology exchanging “rape” for :”violation” which is a more congruous term in the context.
      She is also speaking about a red carpet experience. Events that she goes to of her own free will knowing to routine.
      She would make a great face for paparazzi reform advocacy as well as for Balenciaga adds don’t you think?.
      There is as much to appreciate about her interviews as there is not for me but the emo attitude is becoming tiresome and starting to sound contrived.
      You don’t like it when people victimize themselves which is what I hear her doing repetitively. What are you hearing?

    • curioushairedgal

      I hear reacting to what represents an imposition, an imposition that had become inherent to the job, but an unwanted imposition nevertheless. That sth has become the accepted routine by majority (as being followed by papz for ex.) does not mean it is ok. Unfortunately, saying it’s not ok doesn’t result in anything much as the papz are a constant and repetitiveness of reacting without effect is tiresome as u say.

      Figurative rape/violation by papz won’t go away.Only thing that will is her perception of it as such. Which I think it did somewhat as it now looks like toleration of the imposition. They’ll never ‘get off their dicks’, so ideally, when they’re already paying the price for their jobs, and the papz are cashing in on it, they could make it usefull. Like what Stone/Garfield did, drew attention to a cause.
      Bye.

    • kidkennedy

      I don’t like seeing a serious word like “rape” being thrown around casually or even used to exaggerate a feeling or to make a point. When it get used as slang, it can become a word that people become desensitized to. The word its self and definition of the word and the act that it represents loses significance and importance. Thats my problem with saying it to describe anything other than what it means.
      The papz are the scum of scum and what they are allowed to do should be unlawful but they are not rapists.
      I hope you are well. I am sorry that i chose our first communication in a long time to be a disagreement but I was compelled by the topic.

    • curioushairedgal

      Don’t be sorry, disagreements are good for understanding, even if we can never see eye to eye on this. I just don’t think the word was used lightly, quite the opposite, or that it in any way can take away from the ‘authentic’ thing. My problem is with the backlash the statement had and the assumption that only the bearers of ‘authentic’, literal experiences can provide for ‘proper’ use or understanding, and that poor little rich girls with all that money and fame better watch their mouth. So many ‘authentic’ experiences in life we can never have, yet understanding thankfully does not reside in that, as there are many with ‘authentic’ experience without understanding.You might call this wishful thinking or naive but I just don’t think language or meaning is sth to be controlled or enclosed. I can read ‘bitch’ used casually million times and never get used to it, and actual act of rape is always that (and even more than can fit into just a word) even if the word is used figuratively in the sense of evoking the violence principle or taking away of freedom. Again, you may think this empty theorizing coming from my sheltered point of view.
      It is not that don’t like people victimizing themselves.Feeling a victim is extremely powerful feeling, which in my opinion can turn self-destructive if not fully expressed, understood, digested, overcome,as any other I guess. It’s like a starting point, I don’t like, or rather, I fight it being an ending point.
      All is well at the Eastern front, hope the same for you and the little dweller within.

    • kidkennedy

      I have shown displaced concern. You are right, it’s not about the word. It’s about the act and the fact that it is performed too often and punished too slightly and often, not taken seriously. There is a man running for congress who recently used the term “legitimate rape” in his campaign against the use of the “morning after pill”. Please allow me to be angry about that. lol!
      I can’t imagine how dull language would be if it were governed.
      Lets blame my anal retention saying “the word must go with the correct definition”. hahaha
      I NEVER think that your theorizing is empty or that you lack compassion for someone who has experienced something you have not….OH contrar!!

    • curioushairedgal

      Why do you think I am right? I am not RIGHT. It’s about the word AND the act and what it means to different people. It’s not either/or. What it means to people tells about people. Whoever used “legitimate rape” has a meaning too, a very telling meaning about that person.

      I miss talking to you. And I have thought a lot about the last talk we had on twi blog. A lot.

    • kidkennedy

      no, no, no….I didn’t mean that I was going away again.
      A mistake because it’s scary expressing myself still. It’s still a little scary to read a reply. I look at them with my hand over my eyes thru the crack between my fingers. lol! I want to engage but don’t want to be so affected by or addicted to discussions anymore. Don’t want to be an idiot. Don’t want to feel mad or hurt and don’t want to make others feel those things.
      It’s all way more complicated than what I can write here. Basically, I have problems.

      What exactly have i said to hurt you?
      “too complicated to explain here”….code for too personal (for a blog) but it’s past that now…..so I don’t give a shit about too personal anymore.
      I am mentally ill. When I say “fucked-up” I am not projecting jack-shit. I am stating a fucking fact.
      I will say it again. I. am. mentally. ill.
      I was testing to see if you wanted an email from me where I would feel freer to explain things. I see now that you added a line to the comment that was not there before.
      It will probably be hurtful to you that I would question whether or not you would want mail from me right? The ways that I hurt you/piss you off are unintentional always….. as opposed to what you say to hurt/anger/humiliate me. It doesn’t matter…pain is pain. It’s probably worst that I am so fucking blind to how I do it.
      I have always sought you out because I trust, love, admire and enjoy you, but at this moment, I think I may seek you to validate my self loathing.
      Now, rip me apart again. Scream at me to be everything that I am not…re: “THIS”.

    • curioushairedgal

      Do not think that I haven’t questioned why I missed you so much and whether it was because you were also validating a need in me, the need to be as you see me, superior brainiac, to always be right,brains and looks,remember? I have questioned all of it.Your friend is your needs answered, so I questioned what my needs are, what your needs may be, how the whole dynamics of our convos worked, what does it all mean…
      I was screaming at you to just talk to me.
      “THIS” that you see in me does not mean it is there. It is just what you see.And it is connected to how you see yourself.How I see you is also linked to how I see myself.
      “THIS” that you see is not what IS.
      Yes, I hurt you intentionally. Not very loving, admirable or nurturing, isn’t it? Kinda sick, isn’t it, to intentionally do it? So you sought me for the wrong reasons. Can it not be that the reasons you see now are also wrong?
      Have you tested me enoguh as to whether I want an email? Can you now stop testing and tell yourself to believe me when I say that I do and we take it from there?

      @Aitch Slavic: When she was flying out of LAX going to Cannes the paps knocked her down and she was carrying one of the dresses she was going to wear to a showing of OTR. It was sent out over the internet by on lookers at the airport that she was shooting them birds but the reason why was they had surrounded her, knocked her down and torn the dress she was carrying. Her bodyguard couldn’t stop them for there were so many of them that airport security had to step in. In the mags it was printed that she was up to her old self by shooting the fingure at her fans, the paps and cursing at them with a scowl on her face. It never said what they had done to cause the reason why she did what she did. Why can’t we have laws against people doing this to actors like they have in France? I don’t understand why a person who stalks a person not in the public eye can be arrested and go to court but a person who is in the public eye has no rights like a normal guy has. To me they are people too who need probably more protection from stalkers and those out to harm them since now with social media they have no privacy.

    • Chancellor

      @curioushairedgal: Thank you for your post. Maybe Jenni is not old enough to have been around when Lennon died but I was a teenager then and remember quite well all the media blasting the Beatles were getting at the time when John Lennon broke off from the group to go on his own because his girlfriend Yoko Ono didn’t like the stress he was going through since the Beatles were fighting over their Green Apple Production Co. and about ready to break up anyway. When John Lennon left that is when the band dismembered and each went on their own but fans blamed John and his girlfrind for the breakup. The reaction from some of the crazy fans they had was disgusting but very similar to the hatred that I have seen Kristen getting from some of the fans since 2009 and has gotten more vile since July. Then you have the incident in London last year which happened before the cheating scandal and why wouldn’t she be worried now that the media is fueling the fans hatred for her and unlike Lennon’s days the social network makes finding and attacking someone so much faster and easier to get to. So thank you for your post and I wish everyone would go back and look at history because it looks like history could repeat itself when fans are concerned. Hope this doesn’t happen though.

      John Lennon (one of the Beatles)was killed by a fan who asked for his autograph one hour before he shot Lennon. Rebeca Shaffer was shot by a fan who stalked her for a week at work and then got her address from the DVM, went to her apartment and shot her. The Screen Actors Guild worked to stop information on actors being given out by any public office and won a court ruling to stop this from happening after the Schaffer killing. So theBeatles is a good example because of all the publicity they got when it came to their personal lives the fan knew when and where Lennon would be at the time. Today I saw a news report about Tweeter Beat that law enforcement officials are trying to get Tweeter to work with them to stop the use of Tweeter to stalk, locate and send others to attack a person they have trashed on Tweeter. One person in LA was beat to death when a group saw the beat tweet and desended on the guy to join in the beating. They didn’t even know the guy but helped kill him while one taped the beating on their IPhone. That is how the police caught the people involved when it hit youtube. So yes Jenni I can see why she is scared since you don’t know who is sending out messages to stalk you and it can be done so fast and secreative these days with social network.

    • Jenni

      I feel like we’re talking about two different topics. My argument is that if she feels this unsafe (and you all seem to think this is a justified feeling) that she should quit acting.

      Your argument is that she really is in danger. Okay, let’s go with that and get back to my original thought. If that’s the case, should she keep acting?

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Oh jenni such a stupid discussion. Blow it off.

    • Jenni

      But I’m having so much fun!

    • a little confused

      That’s a very difficult question. There’s no doubt that she loves acting and she might not want to give up on that so soon. She might also be hoping that things calm down when the Twilight Saga ends (I at least hope for her and Rob’s sake that it will). Plus most people believe the things they love worth fighting for and Kristen seems to be one of them for what I’ve seen from her attitude in the past. So no, I don’t think she should stop acting.

    • Chancellor

      @Jenni: What I am saying is that she loves acting and you see her love for what she is doing when you watch her interviews and her reactions to fans when it is a movie not involved with Twilight. There is no danger for her when she promotes a movie without Robert Pattinson connected to it. The danger part of her career only comes into view when his fans are attacking her on the internet, stalking her, and sending threatening messages to her because she is with Pattinson. The London incident proved she has a valid reason to think she could get murdered since she almost had her throat slit by one of his fans at a premiere promoting Twilight. She doesn’t have this worry at other movies she is out promoting for his fans are not there. They don’t want her connected to him. They are radical like some of the Beatle fans were and anything that might upset their view of how things should be they want to remove what caused the problem so they can remain in their world of utopia. Look at all the other movies she has done with actors who have a big fan base. The difference in this is that their fan base is more rational in how they look at the actor they support than some of Pattinson’s fans are. So she was right in saying she is in danger but it seems she is only in danger when it comes to anything to do with Pattinson’s fans. She should continue acting just not in anything that connects her with Pattinson. I hate to say this but she would be safer and could continue acting in a better environment if she would disconnect with Pattinson all the way if he is not going to do something about his radical fans. They read the gossip mags and websites that trash her to form their opinions no matter if what they read is untrue they use this as a source to fuel their already hatred of her. What they read is factual in their minds if it makes Kristen out to look negative to them and no one can change their minds even if they are shown facts that say the articles were lies. Not all his fans are this way but even a few pose a threat. Have you ever seen fans of an actor go on youtube crying and cursing an actress for having a relationship with the actor they support? Have you ever seen a large number of fans send a movie company a petition to keep the actor’s girlfriend from coming to his premiere? I have not ever seen this kind of reaction from a group of women towards another person connected to the one the fans idolize. They seem to be very possessive of Pattinson and can’t understand that he is an actor that played Edward Cullen whose character and personality came from the mind of Stephanie Myers. Robert Pattinson has his own personality, character and choice of girlfriend. They see him as Edward and want to be his Bella which makes it difficult and dangerous for anyone in a real relationship with him. I have seen some of these radical fans go on and on in their comments about what a gentleman he is and how much alike he is to Edward as if they are personal friends of Pattinson and know him so well. He might be a gentleman or not but I don’t know since we are not personal friends. So now that I have rambled on to answer your question she should keep acting for she is good at it and seems to enjoy it. She just needs to move away from the thing that brings danger to her life which is anything to do with Pattinson’s crazy fans who stalk and threaten her. If the relationship is not a PR stunt and she really cares about him then maybe taking a year off, hiding out and waiting for the Twilight craziness to settle down might allow her to be with him and not fear his fans are stalking her. Maybe the saying out of sight out of mind will work in her favor and his fans will move on to idolize and terrorize someone else and their girlfriend. I think when she said her fame will murder her she was talking about the fame from Twilight not other movies she has done since Twilight has been the only movie where some of the fans are irrational enough to stalk and send her death threats. Take a year off and then go back to acting is what I say. Pray that his irrational fans move on to someone else.

    • Jenni

      I think that’s a fair answer.

    • Petranella

      Very well stated.

  • Petranella

    OK well to be fair Pattinson also has said that he frequently has fears that he will be stabbed by someone jumping out from the large crowds he/Twilight draws.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      He should not say that. It draws people to do that.

    • Petranella

      He and Kristen have both said this–stabbing fear. They have obviously had the conversation with one another.

  • LisaB

    She’s A LOT melodramatic, and more and more hyperbolic in the way she talks about herself. This MAY be a good quality in an actress, but not so much a quality you want in a mate in which you have to make a peaceful, stable life and learn to appreciate sharing the mundane routines of everyday. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some off-balance, obsessed Twilight or Rob fans who wish her harm, so I don’t blame her for being concerned about this. I agree that Twilight is not worth dying for, but Rob???? In my humble opinion, he is God’s gift to women and I REALLY don’t get the cheap shot about the most gorgeous head of hair I’ve ever seen on a man. He’s all that and probably more, and seems to long for a life without drama in his personal life, as opposed to KStew, who seems to subconsciously seek it out.

    • Petranella

      God’s gift to women eh? Maybe not so to live with him… And if Rob longs for that life of peace that he wants so bad–what is stopping him–?

    • ss

      Lol…You know, I saw that part. I just decided not too comment.lol That is EXACTLY why, RP could never ever do no wrong in people eyes. That reason right there. RP has got it made. I think he is handsome and did good in Cosmo, but damn lol!

    • lillicat

      Abbeysbooks said in one of her blogs that Rob is needy and requires lots of TLC.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      What! Now where did I say that!

  • Lea

    I think you should stop complaining about every single thing that comes out of this girl’s mouth…after all, if she decided to switch careers you wouldn’t have any material for your articles…give her a break, she’s entitled to feel however she feels and you’re not entitled to being so judgemental

    • Jenni

      As long as Taylor Swift keeps making music, I should be good with content! But I appreciate the concern.

    • ss

      Lol! Good ol Swifty….

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks
    • Lea

      Really? Could have fooled me…every single thing I’ve read about you is something negative about her

    • Jenni

      Sounds like someone’s nominating themselves for Crushable Reader of the Month….

    • Irish Girl

      I’m still waiting to win that.

    • lillicat

      BTW, Jenni- since I haven’t talked to you in a week or two (hope all is well with you); How do you feel about Rob and Kris getting back together, being seen out this weekend???

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      jenni’s hypothesis is not invalidated. Although she is the reason they are out and about.

    • ss

      Lots of those articles are saying, RP and KS “planned” their outting, to get to get their picture snapped “together”. Also asking, whether or not it was just for PR for BD2. Because, for them to stay hidden and with no pictures of being together for a long time, then all of a sudden they,are snapped together, out the blew per say.

    • ss

      Hopefully there is a prize….

  • Irish Girl

    She may not be cut out for fame, but she can be an actor without being famous. I’ve said it before; all she has to do is simply walk away, and yes, it can be done, has been done, and will be done again. She could easily remove herself to Jupiter, Florida, and join the local theatre troupes there. Or the Second City. Or Seattle. She’d be acting all the time, no problem.

    She just wouldn’t be paid exorbitant sums of money, receive free clothes and swag, and be on magazine covers.

    I can understand her being shy or reticent or even annoyed with pappos; they cross lines — frequently, flagrantly, awesomely, and there is a threshold and boundary, like photographing someone in their home or cavorting topless in the backyard. Violations of privacy and personal space — like literally getting inches in front of someone and snapping pictures — is unnecessary and potentially dangerous.

    But come on…if you don’t want to be photographed casually as you go out to a concert or to dinner, out in public, then shut up and stay home. Stop whining about it. And I’m not just referring to Stewart; there are a few of these people — some I consider actors, and some whom I consider nothing more than celebrities — who bitch and moan about the media when they often put themselves smack in the thick of the morass they complain about.

    As a publicist, I’ve seen it happen with my own clients, and do you know what I said? I said, “If you don’t want to be snapped at the grocery store with no makeup and your hair akimbo, then DON’T LEAVE THE DAMN HOUSE until you’ve groomed yourself.” Because OF COURSE they’re gonna take your picture, you idiot.

    So, in closing, your honors…if Kristen doesn’t like people taking her picture in a public setting, she has two choices: grow up and accept that this is part of the deal, or walk away. That’s really pretty much it.

    • ss

      Agree 100%.

    • Jenni

      This is my biggest celebrity pet peeve. If you don’t want to be photographed, don’t go places where celebrities go. Looking at you celebrities who go the trendiest clubs and then complain paps caught you out looking drunk.

    • Whiskey

      Or she could keep acting, but move to a place that has a different attitude towards celebrity. London. NYC. Bumf&*$ Alaska, for all I care. LA is a cesspool of paparazzi and gawkers who don’t care at all about granting anyone dignity or privacy. Fly in for meetings, then go live your life somewhere pleasant.

    • Irish Girl

      Canada has a great atmosphere for actors and not nearly as much celebrity culture. I loved it there.

    • Petranella

      In all fairness, in the overall picture–Kristen Stewart is not papped much at all-why? -she lives a very very under the radar life, is never seen in “hot spots” clubbing, never seen out publicly intoxicated or driving drunk– and does not endlessly whine about papz photo-ing her going to a concert, doesn’t give salacious details about her life with her boyfriend, isn’t seen on Rodeo Drive with 50 shopping bags, and as far as I know has never been photo’d getting a latte at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. She goes out of her way to be low key and is not a Hollywood party-girl.
      She has complained about intrusive and aggressive paparazzi, which nearly ALL celebrities do, I have 100s of quotes on that.
      Let’s also talk about what the girl does “right” not just everything about her that’s “wrong.”

    • ss

      Agree

    • lillicat

      Absolutely, she girl is definitely not a party girl, and she seems to live a clean life.

    • nena

      Hey girl what’s up? Haven’t talked to you or lillicat in a week. Not much going on this site lately. Come to twitter, oh if you want to help stop the media from telling lies or bullying KS and calling her names go to tl.gd/jnc811 send emails to tabs and websites or if you have a blog to post, a lot of us have been doing it for 5 days do it everyday. Please girls get your friends to also!!!!! On twitter @Ghoxi5

    • Irish Girl

      Hey, there! Been working, but I’m around. :)

    • nena

      Miss talking to you and lillicat and others everyday!

    • Irish Girl

      Just busy working on some stuff, but I’ll be back eventually.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Well hurry up will ya!

  • ss

    Saw that picture of RP and KS out together… Why does it seem so strange now? (Too me it does, anyway) I mean, seeing those two together. Idk

  • DPJJJ

    This article is just rude and of course, completely unneccessary. Somebody obviously has a stick up their ass. First of all, this quote of Stewart’s is most probably taken completely out of context. For all we know, she could have been joking around when she said it. Yeah, the whole acting thing and Hollywood is ridiculous to me, but I really like Kristen. I’d like to add that someone NOT having their “Twitter grammar” up to date, makes them a whole lot COOLER in my book. Who gives a flying F about your stupid Twitter.

  • Clare

    Jenny Maier: you’re a fucking asshole.

    • Jenni

      My 10th grade English teacher said the same thing! Guess my writing really does touch hearts.

    • Irish Girl

      We all just hope she washes first. You know, before she …touches us.

    • nena

      Wow you people are so strange!! But all loved you weirdos

    • ss

      Lol!

  • lillicat

    Jenni: You can’t imagine how many really scary death threats I’ve seen online aimed at Kris. I flagged and turned in a You-Tube Video 2 days ago not because of the video content as much as the comments it incited. “K-Stew needs to get a bullit.” (I’m being literal-spelling and all). It seems abnormal, because I’ve never heard of this with other “scandals ” in HW. It’s bone-chilling, and should be taken seriously, especially with all the Promos coming up.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      Young girls today are killers.

    • Petranella

      I think this is why the upcoming BD tour will be all about managing crowds and security.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      And where the fuck is that at? Is that art? Is that anything but money. They will risk their lives, because they cannot be fully protected ever, just as Homeland Security cannot protect us, and both are empty signs of protection that does not exist. she knows this at some level and that is why she is scared.

      If he caters to these fans at the premiere we will know he has learned nothing.

    • Jenni

      I’m going to guess it happens more than you think. If I get death threats and I’m a random blogger out of a million random bloggers, I’m guessing celebrities get them all the time. It seems to be the most popular way of saying “I dislike what you do!”

    • lillicat

      Jenni, we’ve got your back. Just keep writing the way you always do. You have a wonderful, dry sense of humor, and even though we don’t see some things as related to Kris and Rob the same way doesn’t mean I don’t have the highest respect for you as a journalist and blogger. I always smile at your posts, even if I might agree. See YOU ARE LOVED. Maybe that will keep you safe for now. I pray so at least.

    • Jenni

      Thank you, but no need to waste any prayers on me. I think the majority of my death threats come from girls who can’t legally drive yet.

    • lillicat

      So perceptive.

    • nena

      Hey what’s up go to tl.gd/jnc811 and please do it. DM me on twitter if have questions. Ghoxi5 on twitter

    • lillicat

      Nena- I saw this just yesterday. It’s on my to do list tonight (instead of lurking on GC.Hah). I wish we could have done it earlier. Have a good day!!

    • lillicat

      Oops! I replied to you below by mistake. Sorry!

  • Red Flag Warning Kristen

    I guss if one of Rob’s fans threatened to slit your throat at the London premiere of Breaking Dawn 1 and tried to do it before security and your body guard stopped her you would be paranoid too. She has had so many threats against her since the gossip went out that she was dating Robert Pattinson back in 2009. Niki Reed also got death threats the short time she dated him as well. Kristen has every right to be paranoid but I wouldn’t wait for Pattinson to protect me after how he treated her in that video that is going around of the two of them together on ET Online. This girl has had his fans petition a movie studio to keep her away from his premiere (Water for Elephants) had pictures of her with her eyes burnt out sent to her PR people. Threats made against her on Twitter, gossip sites and letters sent to her manager way before any cheating scandal happened. She needs to get out of this relationship for it is a hazard to her health. The stress alone would drive you to depression. Which it looks like she is going through on top of having a so called boyfriend who doesn’t care what his fans do to her.
