    i think people are too quick to judge. on countless occasions kristen has stated how much she loves the movie, and she also says that she never does a movie, unless she is compelled to do it. if you read the full article in nylon, they talk about her attitide and how its being percieved by fans. here the link for the full article, i sugest you read it before you judge her!

    I was not surprised by her coments even if it was her dad who said it. But when I found out that they were making a movie out of twilight I was more surprised by Kristen playing Bella. Everyone was giving negative attention towards Robert just for playing Edward. I am just upset that people are now starting to see what kind of an actress Kristen is. You could tell in what few movies she has done that she plays the same damn character over and over. And she has made comments even before this whole situation, that hinted that she never really cared about the books. At least Robert was able to transform into what he thought was Edward. If you watch the messengers and then watch twilight you see that Kristen never did anything to prepare for the character. She is the same character, she is always the same character. She missed a big oppertunity to go to the Oscars at least we have Robert to do the right thing. And he had recieved more negative attention then Kristen ever did. Bet I bet you next year, we will be seeing a lovely Kristen Stewart on the red carpet at the oscars, because lets face it she can think she is the best actress in the world but if you continue to have a pre maddona attitude about everything, you will never get the same opportunity and the same fame as you will twilight.

    I agree that people are too quick to judge…i didn’t really thing anything of the comment when i first read it. I think it was taken out of context. She’s signed on for the sequels after all hasn’t she??? So she must like Twilight, or at least see a future for the franchise. The media are scavengers, taking any opportunity to dish up a nasty story.

    She needs to grow up. 18 is old enough to know better. When I was 18 I moved out of state and have been taking care of myself ever since. She is not a ‘child.’

    She grew up in that industry and you grow up fast. Faster than the average kid. With Kristen, what you see is what you get.

    The Nylon article is a whinefest. Poor misunderstood Kristen.

    I dont like her, or her as Bella and no amount of calling me or the others like me judgemental, harsh, mean!!!, jealous (puh-lease!), or bitchy will change that. Our prerogative. It is sad that the Twi Kingdom is divided once again however.

    Redrose – you are dead on with her acting. Sort of like Harrison Ford and Julia Roberts… same all the time.

    Even tho she does say some dumb things, she knows better than to say something like her father did. If i were her, I would make my dad make a statement saying that quote was his opinon. I would be so mad that he started all of this, when he’ssupposed to support her. Although, I think he was taking a stab and Holloywood’s ethics, rather than the movie. He just said it wrong.

    i think people should give kristen a break. i am a huge fan of everything twilight (why else would i be on here?) and i was a huge fan before the films came out and was crazy with excitment waiting for the movie but come on do u really think twilight would have been such a hit if it wasnt originally a book and had millions of crazy fans? i think thats wht kristen means, that she feels twilight was a hit because its twilight not because its a really good movie (which it is!!) i think she just wants to wait till she is in a movie that hasn’t had all the help twilight has had to be a hit and wants to really feel like she has been a success herself. Anywho i think kristen is a great actress and i think its rare to find an actress nowadays who goes for roles that she likes and thinks are interesting to play rather than roles thats she thinks will make her the most famous and that goes for rob also i think he is the same in his choice for roles.

    I feel like there are so many people who are loving the opportunity to hate Kristen right now. Its easy to do – she gets to be paid a lot and make out with Robert Pattinson. But she is coping with a lot. Twilight fans are obsessively in love with the series and she didn’t know anything about that before she signed on. She seems to have thought she’d be playing another oddball teen in another film which wouldn’t get very far. Summit didn’t sign everyone for the next 3 films because they didn’t even know if it would go far – so you can’t blame her for being ignorant of a book craze.

    She also seems genuinely at a loss for what she should do in the spotlight. I think I might feel the same. All these people loving you without knowing you – and if you feel a bit awkward normally then that it going to make it worse.

    Also – so what if she always picks the same type of character – she does it well, makes nice films and gets paid for doing it. We all go to work and do the same thing too. It probably won’t win her Oscars, but that’s her choice.

    And as for not going to the Oscars, some celebrities never go. Some people are intensely private and don’t like the spotlight. No one else is being bashed for not going, just Kristen because she’s in the spotlight right now. I’m sure if she did go, people would be criticizing her for being a hypocrite for wearing a nice dress and so on.

    She can’t win, so I’m giving her respect for just trying to be herself and not giving in to the immense pressure the fans put on her.

    This is soo funny to me…some of the people who are bashing her once called themselves her FANS… this sort of reminds me when BD came out…really upseting actually. I just wanna say I support Kristen 110%!

  9. Janie says:

    I never was a KS fan BECAUSE she was always a sourpuss bitch. You guys can continue to kiss her ass though for all I care.

    The rest of us have some self respect.

  10. Shanise says:

    People don’t really understand Kristen that well which is why she’s not very popular with fans of the books and this has just made things worse. Most of the time we see Kristen she doesn’t seem like she’s in a very good mood. But you have to consider that this must be her thousandth interview of the day and she’s been answering the same question repeatedly. I’ve seen onset pics of Kristen smiling and having fun; I’ve also read interviews from before things got insane which make me like her. I can understand why Kristen didn’t what to go to the Oscars Twilight wasn’t at that level of greatness but it was reasonably good movie. But I do think Kristen should have gone because of Rob what Kristen’s dad said made it seem as if Kristen didn’t believe that Rob is , and I’m not sure if this word for it, as sophisticated as she is; it was like a slap in the face. I really really think that she should release her own statement about this because it has gone above and beyond what it should be. At this point in time I support Kristen like Roxie said 110%.

  11. becca says:

    I agree this is funny but not for the same reasons. I became a twilight supporter in the summer when the movie hype had already begun so i natrally did reserch on it. i reserched the cast and especially Kristen Stewert because she was going to play Bella. i came across this one article where she arragantly boasts about how much expirience she has and how because she has so much experience all the fans she is going to get will be easy to take in since she has so much experiance. Did she mention how much experiance she has? Then she begans copying Rob’s look by teasing her hair and acting all bad girl. very orignal. Now hearing she hates the movie? that is funny. Too bad she still has fans, really unbelivable the bitch.

  12. Tatiana says:

    I think that what she said in The Nylon was kind of rude for her to say that Twilighthearts questions are kind of like crazy. She signed onto the project she should have done her research on how big Twilight actually was.

    “Anywhere we’d go for ‘Twilight’ was a psychotic situation. The sound was deafening, and it’s thoughtless, as well,” she said. “You get a slew of all these bullsh– questions, like, ‘What’s it like to kiss a vampire?’ and ‘How much do you love Robert?’ Then you’ll get one that’s actually real, but you’re like, ‘No, I can’t right now, I can’t even consider [it].” -Kristen Stwart

    She was being really whiney about it

  13. Janie says:

    Becca, I noticed the hair thing too! I thought I was the only one! When Rob’s hair became its own entity, all of a sudden there’s Kristen being all wild haired. It just seemed so contrived! I was worried at first because she was so plain… then she became this sexpot. I was actually amazed that she was really pretty… but her personality makes her not too attractive. Or maybe it’s her Jay Leno chin? Forgive me, I had to say that! Does anyone notice that?

    And Shanise, we DO GET HER that’s why we don’t like her. Me thinks YOU don’t get her! When will you people see her for what she is? A spoiled, ungrateful, Hollywood brat with a huge entitlement factor going on!

    Really, everyone in the cast had to answer a slew of Edward questions. E V E R Y O N E !!!!!!! She’s jealous of Rob. She was s’posed to be the star.

  14. Janie says:

    Hey, I just saw on IMBD that kristin and Nicki are starring in a prison movie. a COMEDY. Kris plays a man! A MAN.

    Gee, think a gender bending prison comedy is going to get her an Oscar???

  15. Chloe Hall says:

    Count me in. Hate her! She is an awful actress. I don’t care what Rob Pattinson says, she stinks. She is only 19 but she looks used and wasted. She cannot act. She just reads the lines. She obviously thinks she is quite good. It will be interesting to see where her career goes in the future. She certainly didn’t help Adventureland!
