Kristen Stewart: A Triumphant Feminist Story

Kristen Stewart: A Triumphant Feminist Story

Twilight actress Kristen Stewart gives costar Dakota Fanning a ride after rehearsing for their new movie The Runaways on Wednesday (June 17) in Burbank, Calif.

The 19-year-old New Moon starlet plays Joan while Dakota plays Cherrie Currie in the new movie about the 1970s all-girl rock band.

Talking about Joan‘s work, Kristen said, “I’m just listening to her music all the time. I’m trying to just make myself aware of the time period and what she was going through. It’s one of the most immense responsibilities to play a real person. Her story’s important. It’s an incredibly triumphant feminist story really.” 10+ pictures inside…

    Dakota is thrilled to be seen as KS’s new BFF….sooner or later there will be connection to Robert Pattinson..just wait….
    Nikki Reed has suddenly vanished from being seen with K Stew..why?
    Because she was passed over by Robert for KS and now Dakota is worming her way to become known as BFF with Stewart who is already being labeled his girlfriend..

    love kristen!!

    Her hair: It’s because she’s portraying a ROCK star during the 70′s. It’s the character. Not her.
    Not being seen with Nikki: Oh come on, this is not the New Moon set!
    Dakota’s-Befriending-Kristen: Is it bad to make friends with your co-star now? They’ve been introduced already even before this new movie anyways.

  • Safiya

    all the haters need to leave please and thank you

    What the f*** are you talking about? Who’s the critically acclaimed actress who’s been famous since she was 8? She doesn’t need to be friends with the poor man’s actress. But she’s a nice girl and they are co-stars for this film. Jesus Christ.

  • skillet

    Kristen is getting all of this crap just because of Twilight.
    It wasn’t her fault the movie was like that.
    The director is at fault.
    She’s a great actress. Look at her other movies.
    & Dakota and Kristen are costars. They are spending
    so much time together because they’re filming a movie together.
    it was inevitable for them to become friends.

  • Cari

    God! Joan Jett is over 50 years old and she looks hella better than Kristen who is 19, 18? She looks like a meth addict.

  • calliope

    @ Cari

    You have clearly never laid eyes on a meth addict. Lucky you.

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    y did she have 2 ruin her hair =[ =[
    she was such a cutie but now i cant stop thinking about that hair
    and it’s probably gonna be like that for a while =[

  • Shir

    I’m glad that Dakota and Kristen are hanging out! I hope they are/become good friends.

  • mel

    c’mon, it’s getting boring.

  • KristenRULES!!

    thats a great caption picture, Kristen is hot

  • Cami

    people stop complaining about her hair!!! it’s for the movie!! it’s how her character is supposed to look like!!

  • Suze

    LOL She just looks like a bum. The poor girl. I hope she’s actually good in the movie. After seeing her in Twilight my hopes aren’t high.

  • http://allwomenstalk.com/author/lily-mathilda Meream

    It’s cute that they’re friends. Cannot wait for Dakota-Jane on the New Moon. :D

  • JJ

    Wow, what the heck. Leave these girls alone. They’re 19 and 15 – very young and, from what I’ve been able to see, very professional. They’re simply trying to do their jobs and do them well and hone their skills. The hair? It grows back, people. I applaud her for taking what seems to me to be a scary step. She had a gorgeous head of hair and to cut that off only says to me that she’s brave and committed. Of course, I’m not a huge fan of the new cut, but I understand it and respect it. Plus, she always has a beautiful face. Why is it that people worship the ground that a guy walks on no matter what he does or who he is or what areas of his own craft he may need to hone, but women are always judged so much more harshly?

  • Claire

    Plus, she always has a beautiful face.

  • dawn

    Why do some of you have to be so damn mean when it comes to Kristen. She is one of the most amazing up & coming actresses to come by in a very long time. Have some respect!

  • Nala

    Love you Kris!

  • http://myspace.com/cmnightfall Cherie Marion

    Kristen totally looks like Joan Jett in real life. Well, younger of course.

    I am so sick of seeing icky Kristen Stewart looking all boyish. Can she just act like a girl for five minutes?

  • MERY J.

    She is absolutely amazing
    So.. people, I think you have to leave these girl alone, really
    She is a great actress, ands her hair is cool.
    But, why you always make a world of anything?

    (My english is very bad, I know haha)

  • m in pdx

    Kristin Stewart was awful in Twilight. She was either channeling William Shatner or someone told her that…painfully pausing…every…few words…makes crappy acting sound more dramatic. Dakota Fanning is much more talented.

  • Camden

    @Anon:

    I actually totally agree with you. I haven’t seen KS with Nikki or Michael lately anywhere, which is odd considering she’s being stalked by the pap’s like crazy. I don’t know whether KS and RP ARE dating…but sooner or later it’s gonna happen…there’s just way too much going on between those two. There’s still 2 more movies to be made and heaps of promotion together…bring it on:)

  • uhh really

    how does she not act like a girl

  • karen
