    Are you kidding me?? She is literally one of the worst actresses IN THE WORLD. She has won no awards. And yet she’s being put in a position to judge real artists at CANNES?

  • Dieter from Sprockets

    an immoral disgrace

  • cocoapurl

    She has a Cesar Award from the French Academy, a BAFTA from the British Academy, a SAG nom for Into the Wild as part of the ensemble, 9 Critics Circle Awards for Clouds of Sils Maria, a Best Actress Award from the Milan International Film Festival and many more. She also has 3 films in the Criterion Collection (two of them are French). She is literally one of the best actresses in the world, considering that she’s an international box office success and has won top awards in Europe and top critical awards in the U.S. She has also generated about $4billion dollars in revenue at the box office as a lead. She’s also had 4 movies premiere at Cannes as an actor and one as a director. Lastly, she’s been an actor for 19 yrs and has been around the film industry her entire life. She is more than qualified to judge and is just as much of an artist as anybody else on that jury.

    For the type films Cannes specializes at their festival, Kristen has more knowledge and more business being on that jury than Netflix does presenting their corporate crap TV movies at Cannes.

  • PJ Dingleberry

    She looks like she’s constipated in every scene of her movies. This shit is ridiculous!

  • Chaka Beards

    The Cesar award was nothing more than a gift for the twilight “actress”. Flavor of the week. She’s has no formal training, cannot form sentences without several “ums” and “likes”. She clearly has the vocabulary of someone that has a GED, which is the extent of her education. If not for her parents getting her in the industry, you would have never heard of her.

  • Chaka Beards

    She is the worst actress I have ever seen. Zero vocabulary and cannot form a sentence without multiple “likes” and “ums”. She does have a GED though…

  • cocoapurl

    The Cesar Award is the French equivalent of the American Oscar. Why would the French Academy give Kristen Stewart an award for Twilight? So, the 22 other awards that she was nominated for and the 9 she won for Sils Maria were “a gift?” That might be the dumbest crap I’ve read, which is ironic considering that you’re attacking her intelligence level because she was home-schooled and tutored towards a high school diploma. Her father is a TV producer/stage manager and her mother was a script supervisor. Her mother helped her get a non-speaking part as a “ring-toss” girl in a Flintstones movie. She got an agent and booked movies on her own from The Safety of Objects on. Kristen is known internationally because of Twilight. Neither one of her parents had ANY power to make her an international movie star.

    What are you talking about “zero vocabulary?” In movies, she speaking lines from a script. Her vocabulary consists of what the writer puts on paper. So, if you’re going to insult that vocabulary, then you’re insulting the screenwriter. If you’re conflating her characters with how she speaks in interviews, which is actually quite articulate from what I’ve seen, then you’re a bigger dolt that I initially thought.

    Kristen Stewart looked constipated while she was dancing in On the Road? She looked constipated while she was singing and playing the guitar in Into the Wild? When she transformed into Joan Jett, sang and played the guitar she looked constipated? When she was playing a stripper in Welcome to the Rileys she looked constipated? In which scenes? You’ve seen all 40 of her films, right? When she played a girl with Friedrich’s Ataxia so well that the audience at Sundance thought she had the illness, she looked constipated? Please elaborate on what’s “ridiculous” about an award-winning, veteran actress getting to be on the jury at Cannes.

  • Chaka Beards

    Are you really that obtuse? Have you seen her interviewed? She cannot form a sentence without several “ums” and “likes”. She’s really putting that GED to use.

  • cocoapurl

    Let’s see, she’s a millionaire, selected to be on the Cannes Jury, an award-winning actress, a model, and a director who has contributed to a technical journal regarding artificial intellgience. Yeah, I’d say she’s putting her “GED” to very good use. Conversely, you’re a complete flipping moron who thinks the French Academy gave one of their most prominent awards to Kristen because she was in Twilight, but somehow you’re able to type in complete sentences. It’s amazing really. You also think that a script supervisor and tv stage manager, crew people, can create a career for their daughter that’s generated about $4 billion dollars at the box office. Yet, you’re supposed to be some kind of judge of intelligence and I’M obtuse? Right. You need take several seats and think about the meaning of your life.

    LMAO What? Actually she was nominated for 23 awards for one movie, won 9 critics awards and won the equivalent of the Oscar in France. I’m not even going to get into with you. When you think about it, it’ll come to you.

    You’re a stan, I guess. Honestly, I couldn’t pull this kind out info out of my memory bank about my favorite actor of the last 25 years (Ralph Fiennes). But YOU clearly CAN. Which is weird to me. I don’t know. Maybe you googled it real quick in your desperation to defend her. Okay, I’ll give you that. But she is still a shit actress. I don’t have an explanation for why she has so many awards/noms that you claim she does — I truly, genuinely find her to be a terrible, one-note actress. Sure, she can deliver lines. But she can’t do accents, can’t do period pieces, and always has the basic same expressions for whatever the scene calls for. Maybe I over-reacted by calling her a shit actress. To be more clear: she is over-hyped, unmemorable, uninspiring, blank, vanilla, and completely lacking depth.

  • Chaka Beards

    She got lucky. Her parents “ins” in the business certainly didn’t hurt her. If not for that she would have gone unnoticed. She has no range, she’s is awkward and incorporates to many “ums” in her lines. Much better out there. Just stating fact. I know of high school actors that are far better but do not receive her privileged opportunity.

    I’m absolutely and proudly a long-time fan. You actually got something right. I’m the desperate one? You’re the one who screamed out that she’s the worst actress in the world, with no awards, and was then made to look like a complete jackass when her awards were listed.

    As far as your opinion about her acting, duly noted. However, factually she does a Southern accent in Undertow and The Yellow Handkerchief, an English accent in Snow White and The Huntsman, and a Scottish accent in Lizzie. She has done three period pieces (Lizzie, On the Road, and Café Society) and is about to shoot a fourth this year in a movie in which she plays Jean Seberg. I disagree that she has the same basic expression for the scenes in the 40 movies she’s been in. Between the two of us, one of us couldn’t understand how an actress could get more than one award for a single performance. I don’t know how much I would trust your judgment. Just sayin’.

    Unmemorable? She’s memorable enough for you to take time out of your day to loudly be wrong in your comment on a gossip site.

    Overhyped? Well, as mentioned before, you have a right to your opinion. But, she has been the lead in movies that have generated about $4 billion dollars at the box office over the course of her 19 yrs in the business. So, I think much of the hype is earned.

    Uninspiring? Her fans have raised over $90,000 for causes that she’s connected with over the years for her birthday as a gift to her without her asking for it in any way, shape or form.

    Lacking depth? She played a girl with Friedrich’s Ataxia so convincingly that the audience at Sundance thought she had the disease. She played a rape victim so convincingly that when she did a PSA for campus safety they had to open up more phone lines to handle the influx of calls. This was about five years before Twilight fame.

    You’re entitled to whatever opinion you want to have about her. However, as a fan, I’ve actually seen all of her movies that have been released, which totals about 40. I think she’s a fantastic actress. That’s why I’m a fan and, objectively speaking, her many awards back up my opinion. Glad to see her on the Cannes jury. I think an actress who has a career in the French film industry, is an international movie star/box office success is a good choice.

    Take a break from the electronics!!

  • KS_in_TP

    Be careful. @cocoapurl will spend HOURS replying to you in long paragraphs.

  • cocoapurl

    Nah. I think I’ll stick around and see if somebody else say something completely ignorant.

  • KS_in_TP

    LOL.

  • cocoapurl

    It doesn’t take long. It takes about as long at it would’ve taken for you to Google Kristen Stewart before you announced that she has no awards.

  • KS_in_TP

    OF COURSE YOU WILL.

    Obsessed.

  • cocoapurl

    Absolutely obsessed with her work and proud of it. As I mentioned before, I’m a fan.

  • cocoapurl

    You haven’t stated any facts. You’re stating your opinions. You called me “obtuse” because your personal attacks on her intelligence level for having a high school diploma (which you keep calling a GED in order to be condescending) and saying “um” and “like,” as humans do in real life, didn’t go over as well as you would’ve liked.
    An “in” may get you in the door. Yet, it doesn’t keep you there and get you awards from two different film academies. It doesn’t get you work with some of the best actors, directors, and producers in the business. It doesn’t give you longevity in your field. It also doesn’t get you on a Cannes jury or invited to Cannes four times as an actor and once as a director. An “in” doesn’t get your films to the Sundance Film Festival 8 times. That she had to do on her own steam and hard work.

    Kristen, is that you again? Earn an education so you can someday form a complete sentence.
