Joan Jett Makes Kristen Cry

Jul 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News

According to the SF Gate (part of the San Francisco Chronicle), Joan Jett had to apologize to Kristen Stewart after reducing the actress to tears on the set of “The Runaways.”

“But the actress allegedly broke down crying after Jett gave her a “hard time” during filming in a bid to improve her performance, prompting the rocker to apologize.

A source tells the New York Daily News, “Joan just wants Kristen to play an authentic version of herself, so she needled her a little bit too much. But she apologized when she realized how upset Kristen got.”

    Maybe that is something Kristen needed. You know, to help her through a scene or something. Who really knows… but whoa!

  2. Michele LeBlanc says:

    Jeez… thats rude. Seriously Joan, shut up.

  3. Marisa says:

    Poor, Kris. Joan does seem to be the type who can be a little hard. But wouldn’t you be that way if someone was playing you in a movie? Anyway, I’m sorry that happened, Kris. I know she’ll pull it off as Joan. She did as Bella.

  4. Judith Akufo says:

    I think when your doing a movie like this on an actual person their should be some distance from the actual person and the actor, because Kristen needs to play the character with their flaws, and that person probably wouldn’t acknowledge those flaws, so I definetly think Joan needs to let the director do their job.

  5. Valerie says:

    hey what ever gets her to play the part right is fine with me!! she better be good if they are making a big deal about her playing Joan!! I’m not a fan of Kristin but maybe she’ll change my mind about her. We’ll have to wait and see.

  6. Carolina G.B. says:

    I really do love Kristen since I am a huge fan of hers and regardless to how tough a role can be you don’t make someone cry. That really wasn’t nice and don’t think Joan should butt in… I agree with Judith on this, she should let the director do his job.

  7. Jamie says:

    I’m a big fan of Joan Jett. I think it was absolutely in her right to step in. Sucks she did it in a way that upset Kristen, but if someone made a movie about me and the actress wasn’t doing a good job I’d be very upset.
    My advice would be for Kristen to suck it up and use that energy and anger and bring it to her part. Joan Jett is a fierce, and Kristen needs to imitate that.

  8. Izzy says:

    wtf. poooorrr kristen =( she looks so upset. why would that mean woman do that!

  9. jenn ily cullen family says:

    god will everybody leave kristen alone she has alot going on like filming this movie,twilight saga and some other movie. she is only human…. god please grant kirsten a wonderful life amen… please joan leave kirsten ALONE !!!!!! ily kris <3

    C´mon Kirsten – so you´re beeing critisized? It´s your chance to learn! Leave Kirsten behind and be more Jett! Leave Kirsten behind and be more Bella! That´s what it means to be an an actress: Don´t transform Bella and Jett and whoever in Kirsten – you have to do it the other way round – GO FOR IT!

  11. Robby says:

    I dunno…no matter what, even if someone were to play me – I wouldn’t reduce the person to tears. But I guess a little of that fame has got to Joan’s head, making her think that she has the right to dictate everything. It’s not like she’s the director.

  12. Michy. says:

    Good! Im glad! Kristen needs to improve her acting skills. shes got the same look and behavior in ALL her movies!! If I had someone play me I’d want it done right!!!! Come on Kristen broken ur acting capabilities!! Be a dynamic artist! Joan: Don’t apologize for what u said. If im going to see a bio pic of you I want to know who YOU are not kristen! She is representing YOU!

  13. Lucy J says:

    wow i so dont see kristen as a crying person. especially when shes on the job. i see her as more of a suck it up and deal person (like #7 Jamie said!) i mean im sorry it happened but i to make kristen cry it must have been strong worded.

  14. Peeves says:

    i guess Kristen wasn’t acting that well in that scene. Kristen Needs to toughen up. But i wonder what Joan said to have Kristne break into tears? Hmmm

  15. jasmine says:

    AWW!!! poor Kristen!!! FUCK OFF JOAN!!! That’s sooo mean!

    Jazz (Team Cullen!)

  16. sam says:

    i love kristen but some of her acting is a bit iffy….. you know shes a bit breathy with everything even when its not needed…joan might have taken it too far but some ones gotta tell you ya know? i mean no one can say kristen is some amazing actress, she has alot of learning to do and im ok with it and wouldnt want anyone else to play bella but her (shes so beautiful and has the total awkward bella down) but on a performance level shes not the best.

  17. christina V says:

    What!! I am glad Joan did that. Kristen needs to improve on her acting. If Joan feel she not doing the job she shouldn’t have apoligize for Kristen, its suppose to maker her better.

  18. Mel :) says:

    Haha I love you twilight fangirls and guys telling Joan to fuck off but would you really say that to her face?
    No I Dont Think You Would 🙂
    Anyway Kristen needs to be a good Joan Jett not Kristen just dressed up as Joan Jett, and she did say she was sorry
    So leave Joan Alone…Haha Rhymes.

  19. Tatiana says:

    Who is Joan Jett?

  20. Amanda says:

    i wish stephenie meyer had stepped in, kristen is a pretty good actress, ill admit, but she has ticks that she always does in her performances. pushing her hair back behind her eyes, blinking, ect.
    joan jett is entitled to saying what she wants, how would you feel if you saw what you thought was a mediocre impression of you, instead of giving true characteristics of your life story?

  21. Michelle says:

    I agree with Amanda- I personally can’t even watch Twilight because Kristen’s tics make me bananas. I think she really sucked as Bella, and Bella came across as a standoffish bitch in the movie, rather than painfully shy and nice.
    Anyway, yeah, go Joan Jett- if someone was playing me and shaking and twitching and not able to get out a complete sentence I’d knock her out. Especially if I was Joan Jett!

  22. Morgan says:

    hahah nice one

    I think what Joan did was good and its just what Kristen Needed…
    If she was playing me, i would make her do it right!

  23. TrendHater73 says:

    I’ve been reduced to tears on film sets. Its part of the biz. Joan Jett has every right to be critical, especially if Kristen Stewart was doing something wrong. She plays most of her characters exactly the same. No offense, I do like her… BUT she does have the tics that have been pointed out. Its like she’s awkward or uncomfortable in her skin, in everything! Pushing the hair behind the ears, chewing her bottom lip or sucking on it, blinking a LOT, hand in pocket and hunched shoulders, or hunching and clinging to the straps of her backpack. There are more than that, but I can’t think of how to explain them. Anyway, sorry to complain!

  24. Mary says:

    I also wish they had casted someone else (like Emily Brown – that was stephanie´s favourite). As that´s not going to happen anymore, and we have to look at Kristen in New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn I wish that she listens to what people say. So she can learn and improve…

  25. LeeLee says:

    I love Kristen so I wish she could be happy all the time. But I also think she’s the kind of person who won’t be happy unless she gets the job done right, so maybe this was necessary. If so, looking back, I’m sure she (Kristen) will understand. I also hope she takes a break if it gets to be too much–there’s more to life than just work!

  26. joelle-marie says:

    everyone saying kristen deserved the criticism are saying its because joan has the right to do it but how would YOU feel if you were kristen? she’s trying her best & supportive words are needed. & you’ll notice that joan HAD to apologize. so, im assuming that if she didnt have to apologize then she probably wouldnt have.

  27. Sheff says:

    wtf? why are people all supporting Kristen? Irm…can you all understand that this is being based upon Joan herself? She doesn’t want someone playing the role wrong and then showing this to an audience! It’s common sense -_-‘

    Silly people


  28. Ky says:

    well the movie is about Joan. If someone did not do a not so good acting of you wouldn’t you get mad I would. Kirsten justs needs that little push from Joan.

  29. Anonymous says:

    Kristen shouldn’t be that upset. Joan is a tough woman and shouldn’t be expected to tell everything is a nice sweet way. Plus, Kristen is playing HER for God’s sakes – she’s not gonna do it properly unless she gets a few pointers. But in light of that, Kristen is young and may not be used to Joan’s ways.
