We talked to Kristen Stewart (photos) at the Welcome to the Rileys screening last night about her connection with her teen stripper/prostitute character Mallory. Her response, in the clip above, is a must-see. You’ll notice that she actually takes her time to process our question and work through her response. Director Jake Scott told us that she’s “all instinct” when it comes to acting, and we’d agree this is a quality that permeates other aspects of her life, including the thoughtful and sensitive way she deals with us nosy reporters and our prying questions.
While some celebs tend to answer red carpet questions by reciting memorized PR talking points, Kristen actually seems to think about her answers and puts a lot of care into how she responds. She is not a Hollywood robot, and for some reason people seem to find that a bit unnerving. We, on the other hand, find it majorly refreshing and we desperately hope it’s something that never changes as her career progresses. She’s fun and interesting to talk to and she looks great in red lipstick. Not a bad combo, right?
