The tough thing about interviews with talent is that you go in with a huge list of questions and never enough time. Such was the case during my sit-down with Kristen Stewart this past weekend at the Snow White and the Huntsman junket. By the time I got around to bringing up her new producer position on the upcoming film Cali, the nice dude keeping track of my allotted time was telling me to wrap. And I never got to ask her about wearing the vampire contacts in Twilight! Just kidding, guys. You know I’d never ask that.
But we did get a minute to discuss what it is about making movies — besides acting — that really moves her. One thing I personally admire about Ms. Stewart (and her better half, I might add) is that she’s a movie person, through and through. It’s her art form; she eats, breaths and sleeps film, and loves every aspect of the business. I was eager to hear more from her about why this is. The actress cites her parents for sparking her interest in the behind-the-scenes element (as I’m sure you know, mom Jules is a script supervisor/director, and dad John is a stage manager) and says that without movies, “I’d be a completely different person.” Hard to imagine!
She also adds, “There’s this really contagious energy that happens, that passes between people, that is really unique. And when you can find people that you can share that artistic energy with, it’s an addiction. You always want to get back to that feeling.” Kristen told our friends at Celebuzz that she wants to make more movies with Rob — we can only imagine the artistic energy and connection they share!
