When Kristen Stewart headed to a Los Angeles prison to shoot Camp X-Ray, she expected that her role as a soldier who befriends a detainee in Guantanamo Bay would be intense—but she had no idea that ghost hunting would be part of the job. Spending almost a month on the set of a deserted detention center, Stewart and her co-stars found themselves getting spooked more often than not when filming the powerful drama. We caught up with the cast at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where they filled us in on the most haunting behind-the-scenes moments from the movie, out now.
Kristen Stewart landed at LAX last week, sporting a pair of classic Vans “Era” skater kicks in black. She is known for often switching out her stilettos for sneakers on the red carpet, and we conjecture she is probably quite happy to see the shoe style spectrum swinging toward the latter. We caught up with Angie Dita, Vans head designer for women, who said, “It’s great to see a young talent who can mix high fashion with beloved laid back pieces and remain true to her personal style.” We couldn’t agree more.
In “Clouds of Sils Maria,” you play an aging actress who sort of gets threatened by a younger actress. I’m assuming you aren’t actually threatened by Kristen Stewart or Chloe Moretz. Did you take on a mentor or teaching role during filming?
The festival announced its special screenings lineup Monday: Robert Kenner’s documentary “Merchants of Doubt,” Olivier Assayas’ “Clouds of Sils Maria,” Xavier Dolan’s “Mommy,” Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent,” Mike Leigh’s “Mister Turner,” Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s “Still Alice,” Nick Broomfield’s “Tales of the Grim Sleeper” and the Dardenne brothers’ “Two Days, One Night.”
The festival runs in Los Angeles November 6th-13th.
‘Still Alice’ will be shown on November 12th & 13th
‘Clouds of Sils Maria’ will be shown November 7th & 12th
