At a recent press conference for Kristen Stewart‘s latest indie flick, The Yellow Handkerchief, also starring Maria Bello and William Hurt, we squeezed a little extra juice out of the actress regarding her upcoming projects. Stewart recently exploded into prominence after her multi-million dollar success with Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight intoxicated teenage girls all over the universe. Despite the constant vampire frenzy, Stewart was surprisingly, well, normal and willing to talk about Twilight and more.
Check out the clips from the interview below…
So there’s a lot of hype over whether or not Breaking Dawn will be shot as two films or one. Any predictions?
Kristen Stewart: I don’t know, actually. The story so completely warrants two films, it would be disappointing to have to lose this sequence and this scene. I would like to do two movies – but to be perfectly honest, I don’t know what they’re going to do.
The Runaways had a very successful premiere at Sundance last month.
KS: We all knew if it did well it’d be a Sundance movie. But now it’s being released – it’s becoming a bigger deal than we thought which is always exciting. Sundance was awesome, I love Sundance. It’s one of the only places you can go and show your movie and talk to 300 people who just saw it. It’s just a different experience.
Your mom wrote, and is planning on directing the film K-11, which you’re slated to act in. Any news on that front?
KS: Were’ trying to get it off the ground. If she called me right now and said we’re making the movie I’d be really excited. We’re really close, and at the same time were creatively different. It’d be cool – we could actually leave the family thing behind, I think.
With Twilight’s colossal success, you seem to be one of the few actresses who can probably pick and choose her upcoming projects. What are you looking for now that the industry is essentially your oyster?
KS: As much as you can say, well, I like to do this because it’s different than what I’ve done before. I can’t really plan things out like that because whether or not a character fits my description and the script is good – what actually drives me to do something like this – it has to speak to me in some way. That’s always hard to describe. This is the first time I haven’t had one of my next jobs lined up. I have a totally clean horizon, so that’s pretty exciting.
There’s a little taste for all of you K-Stew addicts! Check back soon for the rest of her interview about her upcoming movie The Yellow Handkerchief!
