Kristen Stewart & Nicole Kidman: W Magazine's Best Performances Feature!

Kristen Stewart & Nicole Kidman: W Magazine's Best Performances Feature!

Kristen Stewart and Nicole Kidman are just two of the many faces that grace W Magazine‘s Best Performance feature in the February 2013 issue.

Also given the title of “best performance” were Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain, Naomi Watts, Keira Knightley, Daniel Day-Lewis, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Matthew McConaughey, Javier Bardem, Matthias Schoenaerts, and Jack Black, among others.

Here’s a bit of what the stars had to share with the mag:

Kristen Stewart, on dancing in On The Road: “Everyone asks about the nude scenes in On the Road, but I also had to dance, and dancing is harder than being naked. My character, Marylou, is so exuberant, and I had five minutes to do something that showed she was sort of like the craziest motherfucker around. By the end, I was as red as a fire truck. I was holding onto Garrett [Hedlund] because I was going to fall over. I almost passed out every single time.”

Nicole Kidman, on her first role: “The first part I played was in the Nativity play at school. I auditioned for an angel and didn’t get it. I auditioned for Mary and didn’t get it. So I made up the character of the sheep who sat next to the baby Jesus.”

Jessica Chastain, on action scenes vs. love scenes: “It’s easier to do an action scene than a love scene. I love fighting. When the camera’s not rolling, I’ll usually punch some of the actors, just for fun.”

Wow, Kidman looks shockingly natural in that picture. Maybe it’s the makeup that always makes her face look harsh and tight sometimes. She should go bare-faced more.

# 2

Wait a minute? KRISTEN STEWART? BEST PERFORMANCE? Are you kidding me????? What the hell?

Sorry, but Perks of Being a Wallflower trio, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller were a way better than Stewart in OTR! Excellent performance from them!

What the hell is wrong with W magazine??

# 4

Matthias Schoenaerts is so underrated

# 5

Stewart looks like a meth addict absolutely horrific

# 6

this was part of KStew’s (failed) awards campaign. That was some funny sh*t! All she’s left now is the embarassment of a try-hard! Just like the Apattaws!

@Zee: hahaha i have nothing against the girl but its exactly what came to my mind was drug addict looking face she looks like shes had a really hard night partying and just gotten home.

@Zee: Everyone looks awful, stop being a hater and only picking on Kristen. Hate leaves you ugly inside and out and makes you bitter.

@nina: Jared is in touch with Kristen Stewart’s publicist so don;t be surprised. He talked about it in this Variety interview:
http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118058849/ :

That positive approach is noticed by the celebrities he covers. When the Kristen Stewart cheating drama broke out, Eng handled it gently. “News is news. I wouldn’t have broken that news personally, but it was out there,” he says. “Her publicist actually thanked me for the coverage I did on the site because it was very respectful.”

wow nina you check the comments so much that you know when they delete one?….you need better things to do with your time

I’m a fan, but don’t know why Kristen is on this list. Everyone but the most dedicated fans sees Kristen Stewart as having limited acting abilities and so-so portrayals. Hopefully she will start to turn that around with “On the Road”. Nicole Kidman is consistently superb and in a completely different class as the rest of these actresses.

Stewart, always the same face, I can not believe she is so famous actress and the best pay of last year. Her acting skills don’t say anything to me;and she is supposed to be one of the best performance of the year?!

Is Anne Hathaway on a ledge somewhere because she wasn’t included?

@Rina: I thought she was pretty good in On the Road and I’ve never watched any Twilight films before. She and Garrett Hedlund definitely elevated that film.

Stewart is fascinating because she’s different. She doesn’t play by the rules which unsettles some. Many applaud her uniqueness.

Love my job, since I’ve been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I’m making it online(Click on menu Home)

W magazine: where making people look like drug dependent hoodlums with no interest in personal hygiene equals style.

Man, at first at thought they all looked like drug addicts (except Jessica C. and that’s so normal for Kristen I didn’t even think it was different from reality). But if you’re saying that they’re all without make up, I say Jessica Chastain is cheating on this photoshoot. That’s IMPECABLE SKIN without make up. I want Jessica’s dermatologist!!!! hahhaha

Dave Frannco @ 01/24/2013 at 5:07 pm

Forget about the non-make-up… what ‘best’ performance’ are they talking about? C’mon now. This girl is over-hyped to the max.

Obviously, Kidman’s wig didn’t get the memo that the photo shoot was to be strictly ‘au naturel’.

I would have thought they’d include Lawrence instead of Kristen.

All these women are very talented actresses and i respect them for their work and devotation, ALL of them !

They are not all without makeup: at least Jessica, Keira and Kirsten do have some on!

I think they want to give Kristen this image of damned beauty, it’s kind of constructed.. The only thing I’d like to say is that I don’t understand why she can’t wash her hair.
