Kristen Stewart has began her promotion rounds for her film 'Still Alice' with an appearance on the Today Show on Monday. See the video below.
Joined with potential Oscar nominee Julianne Moore in an interview conducted by Marie Shriver, Stewart and Moore showed their chemistry onscreen was as real as off screen.
Stewart plays the estranged daughter who returns to take care of Moore's character who is stricken with an early onset of Alzheimer's Disease.
Stewart says the film's message is to "be positive and live in the now."
"I think I found aspects of myself within this part that I hadn't had a reason to discover." I can stand in something so grotesquely horrendous, and actually see the good in something, and try and see the light, and I didn't know that I had that."
Moore has known Stewart since she was a young child actress when as her husband Bart Freundlich directed her in 2004's 'Catch that Kid.'
Moore said she was "delighted" and "really really thrilled" when she heard Stewart was going to do the film because she "always loved her work so much."
Shriver asked Stewart, "To work with an actress of her [Moore] stature, what did that mean to you as an actress?"
Stewart began to state that she's repeatedly said it before and Moore chimed in and jokingly said to repeat what she said and not to stop saying it. Stewart then repeated, "I love you" several times as the pair laughed.
The chemistry is real between the two actresses which critics have lauded. "
Moore is a heavy favorite for the Best Actress Oscar for her performance. This would be Moore's fifth nomination.
'Still Alice' is set to hit theaters in New York and LA on January 16th and nationwide in February.
