LA REBELLE: KRISTEN STEWART'S VANITY FAIR FRANCE INTERVIEW GIVES INSIGHT ABOUT HER POST-TWILIGHT LIFE (NOT TO MENTION AMAZING PHOTOS)




Aybttv2s



Wearing Chanel fall/winter haute couture in the new Vanity Fair (France), Kristen Stewart hits the cover to give us a look into her post-Twilight life. 

The interview is one of the rare ones that is actually good. Ingrid Sischy asked questions to provide insight into Stewart's world in a non-sensational way.    

It's real. It's raw. It's rebellious. It's Kristen.


Stewart provides a peek into what has been going with her after the release of her final Twilight film 'Breaking Dawn - Part 2' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman'.  

Warning: Language


IS: Why did it take two years after that for you to agree to doing a movie?


KS: I was looking around. There are a couple of things that started and stopped that didn't get off the ground, and I put a lot of time into those things that didn't go anywhere, which, happens. And after that—this could totally say something about where I was at—it took a special thing. Who knows if I were to look now at the stack of scripts that I went through during that period? I wonder if there would be something that I would go, "Oh how did that get by?" Seriously, I think that after Twilight and after Snow White and the Huntsman, which were such huge movies, that I felt I didn't want to search for the next "big, successful" thing. One thing that people do with two enormous movies is think that that's their thing now, to do big movies, and ride that wave. I got off this huge wave and said, "I'm going to go in for a bit." I'm going to come back out later. That was good. I needed some time off. I needed to get in with my friends. I needed to be back in my life. I needed to like, live in my house and be surrounded by my own shit and play guitar and write.

Any fan knows that Stewart is private but she clearly speaks about how media perceptions are not always as they seem. No one knows her personally but those who are close to her. The speculations and false assertions of fact about her personal life by the media should be taken with a grain of salt. Things are not always as they seem. 


"I never really thought of anything in terms of designing a career. I never tried to shape people's perspectives of me, which is something that a lot of people do. There are certain actors and artists who want to be a certain kind of actor or certain kind of artist, and I'm really not like that. I have very much fallen into every situation, every creative and not creative experience, that I have delved into, based on gut. Therefore true regret can never eat at me. In terms of what people consume about you and then subsequently how they shape their opinion of you, none of it is wrong. It's all a varied assortment of whatever flavors they've picked up at the newsstand or in the theater or on the Internet. But that literally is something that is not designed by me and so it's not something that bothers me. But I don't want to add to this already pre-existing, enormous mound of salacious bullshit that isn't real. That's not me defending anything. That's true. Just being in the middle of it it's weird to comment on it. But I feel oddly capable of stepping outside and going, "Isn't it obvious to everyone?" I mean, it's fun, like Valentine says, in Sils Maria. The stories are fun, but do you not realize that there are characters that have been cast in the media and people like to get their weekly fill on these stories. It's like soap opera. I try not to let it mess with me, because my true personal life, as much as people think they know about it, they don't know dick shit. Who could? By the way nobody knows. Nobody knows what the fuck is going on. You're going to die. You're going to lay next to the people that you know the most in life, the people that you're going to grow old with. But you're going to lay next to them in the middle of the night deeply curious about them and who they are, because nobody fucking knows anything."

CHRIS HEMSWORTH TO GO ON 'VACATION' WITH THE GRISWOLDS








Chris Hemsworth has always talked about wanting to do a comedy, now he has his chance. Hemsworth is reported to be in negotiations to join the classic comedy franchise Vacation according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Hemsworth has shown glimpses of his comedic chops in SWATH when caught in the net by the dwarfs. He also dropped funny lines in the Thor and Avenger films.

Newline has been attempting to reboot the franchise for some time and now it appears that they are easing closer to production. 

Hemsworth would play the friend of Rusty Griswold. Ed Helms is currently in talks to play the adult role. They will also be joined by Christina Applegate who will play Rusty's wife.

The original 80's series starred SNL alum Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold the patriarch of the lovable bumbling family.  It also starred Beverly D'Angelo. Both are set to return in cameos.

KRISTEN STEWART COMPLETES ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE WITH DIRTY BATH WATER?!








Kristen Stewart completed her ALS Ice Bucket Challenge alongside her 'Equals' co-star Nicholas Hoult and crew member Scott Fahrendorf. Stewart was nominated by her Jenny Lewis video co-star Anne Hathaway.

Both were so cute completing their challenges uniquely by dunking their heads in buckets of  "dirty bath water" holding them down and then tossing them on their heads. 


Stewart ended her challenge by stating that the use of dirty bath water was to promote water conservation in California. California is currently going through a tremendous drought. It takes Stewart to kill to birds with one stone thinking charitably on both fronts.

Stewart nominated Max Thierot (friend and co-star from 'Catch That Kid') , singer Jenny Lewis, Brie Larson (who also co-starred in the Lewis video) and another 'Equals' co-star Jacki Weaver.


Hoult nominated actor Joe Dempsie who co-stars with SWATH's Johnny Harris in their upcoming film 'Monsters: Dark Continent', actor Colin Firth and Craig Roberts.

ANNE HATHAWAY CALLS OUT KRISTEN STEWART FOR ALS CHALLENGE!








Academy Award winning actress Anne Hathaway joined Instagram in order to complete her portion of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. But while she was at it, she decided to nominate a few people of her own and one of those people was Kristen Stewart.


And we thought they were buddies considering they just had fun filming a video together.  


Thanks to his 'Avengers' mate Robert Downey Jr., we've already seen Chris Hemsworth completed his challenge even though it was after the 24 hour deadline. However, with 24 hrs already ticking, will Stewart complete hers?


Well let's hope she received the word because she's a half world away filming Equals in Japan. Maybe she could get Nicholas Hoult to do the honors or maybe Guy Pearce since he was nominated by his 'Rover' co-star Robert Pattinson. They can do it together (smiles). But no doubt she will get the word.


Hathaway looked adorable as ever challenging Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey and the infamous Joan Rivers whom Hathaway has a well-known disliking for...she's not alone. 


So let's see if Stewart will get the word and take the challenge. 


Time is ticking....(chuckles).  Check out Hathaway challenge Stewart below.  Donate to ALS here.

CHRIS HEMSWORTH MISSED THE 24 HOUR DEADLINE BUT STILL GETS COLD & WET FOR ALS






Chris Hemsworth was challenged by his 'Avengers' rival Mr. Ironman Robert Downey Jr. in a funny video to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. 

Although Hemsworth admits missing the 24 hour deadline, he was still a sport and took the ice water shower along with making a donation.  (See video below)


The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has taken storm this summer particularly with celebrities having fun being doused with ice water for a great cause. It has been just as fun watching them get all wet. 


The Best Celebrity ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Videos 


Unfortunately, there was a tragic bit of news connected with the challenge when it was reported that the creator of the challenge died tragically this weekend.  Fortunately, his good work will live on. 


Hemsworth kept the Avengers line of challenges going by nominating Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hawk) and Chris Evans (Captain America).

IRON MAN ROBERT DOWNEY JR. NOMINATES THOR CHRIS HEMSWORTH TO TAKE ALS ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE!




Robert Downey Jr. (left) & Chris Hemsworth hug it out at 'The Avengers' premiere.

It's another Avengers throw down about to happen when we thought that these guys kissed and made up after their 'Avengers' tussle but apparently not 

Robert Downey Jr. holds up a Thor action figure and hilariously challenged Chris Hemsworth to dump himself in ice water via Twitter as part of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. 


People from all walks of life are challenging others to douse themselves in ice water in order to raise funds for ALS. 


The majority of challengers will do the bucket challenge anyway with the donation. It has been a hoot to see all the videos of the rich and famous being cold and wet.





 

From President Obama to billionaire Bill Gates, they have all been challenged. This has been  ALS's best fundraising campaign in its history. Individuals challenge others to pour buckets of ice water over their heads. The challengee has 24 hours to comply with the challenge or they will have to make a donation. 

As of August 12, the official ALS site reports that "between July 29 and today, August 12, The ALS Association and its 38 chapters have received an astonishing $4 million in donations compared to $1.2 million during the same time period last year. 


The ALS Association encourages everyone to challenge their friends to help raise money to help find a cure. However, if you don't want to take an ice bath, you can go to ALS.org and make a donation today!


Watch Downey challenge Hemsworth below.

VARIETY'S VSCORE LISTS KRISTEN STEWART AS ONE OF THE TOP ACTRESSES IN HOLLYWOOD








Even with Kristen Stewart not being picked up to do the Snow White sequel along with being two years removed from the last Twilight film release, she is still one of the top actresses in the industry according to Variety's new scoring system called VScore. 

Yes, everyone has a gimmick and it is unknown how much the industry types will follow this.  But looking at the list of names, the ones shown are in line with most lists. 


Only accessed through Variety's new premium pay subscription, VScore "reveals the true value an actor brings to a TV or film project."  "Vscore is targeted to entertainment industry professionals including producers, agents, casting directors, casting executives, financiers and PR agents."


Variety explains the process as follows:


"Vscore is the only measurement that tracks social listening across all social channels and news sites and correlates it with an actor’s box office and other data across TV and film. Also incorporated are the actor’s nominations and wins in all major award categories, as well as his or her upcoming projects. The score will adjust in real time according to the actor’s recent roles and media coverage.

 
'Vscore answers a critical need in the industry by incorporating social media mentions grounded in real world performance data to produce the most accurate actor measurement available to the entertainment industry,' said Mark Hoebich, president of Variety Insight. 'This allows financiers, producers, executives and agents to identify the right actor to help move their project forward.' 


Vscore’s searchable database rates each actor from 1 to 100, and allows the user to generate lists based on age, gender and ethnicity. Each actor’s listing includes representative contact details along with past work experience in TV and film, ratings and box office, social mentions, verified Twitter and Facebook pages, upcoming projects and awards nominations and wins. 


Vscore also suggests actors who have auditioned for the same roles, giving subscribers an instant casting list."




It will be interesting to see how this system effects upcoming artists who will not have a chance to make the list.

Photo source: Zimbio




Even without Twilight, Kristen Stewart still makes Forbes list of the 'Top Earning Actresses' of 2014 coming in at #10 with $12 million. 

Stewart has been on an indie tear having several projects either completed or are currently in production this year. 

Some of the projects include: Camp X-Ray which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, Clouds of Sils Maria co-stars Juliette Binoche which premiered at Caanes, American Ultra co-stars Jesse Eisenberg just completed filming, Still Alice co-stars Julianne Moore and Equals which is currently in production in Japan co-stars Nicholas Hoult. 


'Rush'


Hemsworth makes his first list as he is making his way up the Hollywood money ladder.  Forbes writes:

"Newcomer Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor, didn’t have the fame numbers to make it on the Celebrity 100 this year but he ranks 5th on our list of Top Earning Actors with $37 million. The Thor sequel, The Dark World, outearned the first Thor movie by $200 million so expect Hemsworth to be able to negotiate for more money in the inevitable Thor 3. When he’s not playing a Norse God, Hemsworth is busy pursuing an Oscar. This year he’ll star in films by prestige directors Michael Mann and Ron Howard who directed Hemsworth in Rush."

UNIVERSAL'S 'FIFTY SHADES OF GREY' HITS HISTORIC MILESTONE ON SOCIAL MEDIA WITH 100 MILLION VIEWS





Screen shot (Universal)



No matter how hard the studios and entertainment media try to brush off the female audience and treat them as "trendy second-class citizens" especially up against those pesky fanboys with their almighty superheros and going as far as dropping actresses from sequels replacing them with actors then renaming them prequels, this audience will come if you give it something it wants to see (no pun intended).

More after the break
