“She has the patience and the interest in things that people don’t normally look at,” says Stewart of director Kelly Reichardt during the Sundance premiere.
Director Kelly Reichardt’s latest movie, Certain Women, had its Sundance premiere Sunday night, and while two of its leading actresses — Laura Dern and Michelle Williams — were unable to attend the festival, the third, Kristen Stewart, took the stage along with Reichardt and several members of the cast to speak about the film after its premiere.
“We really try to push the envelope,” explained Kristen Stewart of why she works so well with stylist Tara Swennen, who also counts Emily Ratajkowski, Julie Bowen and Odeya Rush as clients. “We never like to do something we’ve done before. She reminds me that I like to be daring.”
Kristen Stewart has what she calls “dropped on my ass” syndrome. Returning to Los Angeles just before Christmas after a “a long week of work,” she’s still recovering from a shoot with Olivier Assayas—not Clouds of Sils Maria, the film for which she won France’s César Award and is a best-supporting-actress Oscar hopeful, but Personal Shopper, a new film that Stewart calls a “thoughtful, really meditative ghost story.”
In the French drama ‘Clouds of Sils Maria,’ Kristen Stewart is the loyal, tenacious assistant of an aging actress grappling with career issues. The New York Film Critics Circle named Stewart best supporting actress — a huge deal — and she won the Cesar award as well. Also a massive deal.
