(*As far as my aesthetic is concerned, I guess. I personally feel like using one's cachet from a hugely successful and crass franchise to get a bunch of small indie films produced is grounds for sainthood. Taylor Lautner seems to be taking the wheel of his own career with a similarly assured hand, but he's trying to become a PG-13 blockbuster action star and not trying to grow his acting muscles so much as the regular ones.)
Her next project is Snow White And The Huntsman, which recently cast Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as the Huntsman. That seems about right. Hemsworth, as you might recall, played Kirk's father in the opening scene of the Star Trek reboot. For a while it seemed like the hot male actor to emerge from that movie was Kirk himself, Chris Pine. But now Chris Hemsworth is ascendant. What happened? Do people know they are two different guys? (Snow White And The Hunstman, originally slated for release at the end of 2012, has been moved up to June 2012. Are they trying to influence the election? Also: "Hey Kristen, how do you uh, make that happen?"-Ashley Greene)
Speaking of confusion between two similar entities, there is another Snow White project in the works. This is very Hollywood circa 97-98, isn't it? Two asteroid movies, two volcano movies, two Snow White movies! The terrorists didn't win after all! Lily Collins, star of the other Snow White movie, has publicly stated that her movie is very different from the (destined to be more popular) Kristen Stewart version. Sorry, lady, but there's no way it is. Collins is apparently dating Taylor Lautner, by the way. Huh? When you look exclusively at the projects involving Twilight cast members, doesn't it seem like Hollywood consists of like, eight people?
Stewart recently won "Best Actress" at the Milan International Film Festival for her performance in Welcome To The Rileys. That one's out on DVD now, so check it out if you get a chance, it was okay! She's also obviously up for several of the far more prestigious MTV Movie Awards, and at MTV.com there's a gallery of her "memorable style moments" if you're into that kind of thing.
Here's an article about how Stewart finds vampires "sexy." It also seems to suggest that she convinced Catherine Hardwicke to cast Robert Pattinson as Edward, but I always thought it was the other way around? Hardwicke is quoted in the article as mentioning that Stewart was 17 at the time of the first film, so maybe the causation is getting revised now so as to make Pattinson look less creepy.
Stewart's film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On The Road has been picked up by distributors at Cannes for seemingly every country except the United States. I hope I don't have to drive to Canada to see that motherfucker; even at the height of my "beat generation" phase I was not able to muster the energy to read that entire book. I want to find out what happens! Do they keep driving or do they stop? Oh, I kid Kerouac, I kid! But really, that book was pretty boring.
I don't know why, but I LOL'd. "Book was crazy." Hahahaha.
