Not a super GOOD INTERVIEW…seriously, LexG could have asked better questions than this.
Fanning comes off as composed/articulate/classy. Stewart reminds me of a raccoon that just crawled out of a garbage can.
“Did you guys ever *heard* of?” I’m surprised VF approved of that kind of grammatically-deficient question.
“It kind of sums up that time”
Man, that’s a horrible way to sell a film.
And Kristen’s new ‘do is starting to look a little mullet-ey for my tastes.
And I get the impression the interviewer hates and resents them (from her patronizing tone/questions–”Had you ever heard of Joan Jett?” Really??)…
Nah, LexG would have just asked them to make out.
That would have been better.
Whenever these girls go off of their coached talking points they fail. This particular interview is better than some of the others i’ve seen probably due to the simplicity of the questions. I guess that’s what happens when your entire childhood is spent on a movie set. Stewart’s good at giving the illusion of complexity due to her broody looks and neurotic behavior (probably a side effect of substance and not actual angst). I get the feeling there’s not much beneath the surface.
OH…. MY…. GOD…..
Just started watching (I have to take it in increments or I might faint), but I am BOWING, and JW continues to be my idol for posting this.
K-STEW 4 EVER. She is an oasis of beauty, composure, intelligence, charm, grit, sexiness, awesomeness, integrity…. “Swoon” is a pretty douchey word, but anytime I see her in any form, ever, I get weak at the knees: She is the embodiment of every quality I’ve ever found sexy in every woman ever. She is Marilyn Monroe times TEN TRILLION, she is James Dean as a hot chick, she is Brando in a 20yr old acting GOD.
Never a false note or dishonest beat in any performance… she is literally HYPNOTIC to behold.
Lately I’ve made a life choice to stop with self-loathing and wasting my time, and I’ve started acting, taking workshops and doing short films and doing scene study with actors and actresses…. Not in my wildest dreams could I or ANYBODY in the game today except Daniel Day Lewis hope to match the bared-soul intensity and passion she brings even to middling projects. I am in AWE.
googs and Nick X….
Please stop hating on K-Stew. It is classless and wrongheaded.
LexG = Bizarro me, my backwards doppelganger from a cube world.
That would have been better.
Some actors should just not be allowed to do interviews. I have nothing against KS, but holy shit was that a prime time display of inarticulate gibberish. Seriously she should have it in her contract that she should refrain from all forms of promotion. Put on the cover of a couple of magazines and that’s it. Promotion done.

Hey Lex, as weird as this is to type this to someone I’ve never actually met, I’m glad to hear this.
LexG–I think we all appreciate your focus regarding KStew and others. She is hot, sans doute, really hot. And sassy, maybe naughty, go crazy with it, whatever. But she is not very intelligent, not by the looks of this interview. For example, she keeps saying “intimating” when she means “Intimidating”.
It’s not a crime, she’s still young, she’s still hot, maybe she’ll get intelligent, it’s not a big deal. You’re right–she’s beautiful. Googs is right, too, and Alboone. She should avoid speaking except from a script. For now.
I don’t think she comes off as stupid. She comes off as hungover. She’s obviously not stupid.
Fanning is pretty together for someone who most likely has been schooled on film sets. Props to whomever manages her.
Yeesh, what a trite interviewer. I’m sure even Fanning, who’s definitely of the “happy-to-do-anything-to-promote-the-movie” school, is probably wondering inside, “Are you that stupid, or are your bosses forcing you to be this stupid?” (to be fair, probably the latter). Whatever you think of Stewart’s interview skills, or lack thereof, at least here she has an excuse.
“I don’t think she comes off as stupid. She comes off as hungover. She’s obviously not stupid.”
Uhhh, based on what, exactly? She reads from scripts about 90% of the time the public ever sees her, and the rest of her appearances have been by and large awkward and painful to watch (the Letterman one instantly comes to mind). Nothing “wrong” with that, per se, (and as Rush noted she’s still very young), but there’s really nothing “obviously” smart about her, either.
And yes, the interviewer is lame as fuck. Jesus Christ. She wouldn’t even have done Olivier (“Uhhh, did you ever heard of Shakespeare?”) any justice.
I think her general level of acting performances so far show she’s not stupid. You can’t be a decent actor and be a total dunce. It requires some level of intelligence.
I’m not sure I agree with that, actually. Left-brain, right-brain…
I wish I understood the Stewart love. I just don’t. Physically she’s bland as fuck, seems dumb as a brick, and gives the same boring performance in every movie I’ve seen her in.
To compare her to Brando just seems insane.
“I’m not sure I agree with that, actually. Left-brain, right-brain…”
I think that would apply more to sports stars. There are plenty of players that are as dumb as a brick but geniuses on the field. But I think actors – the best ones, anyway – generally require a decent level of intelligence to portray someone else convincingly. They don’t have to be rocket scientists but it’s not all instinctive, either. Look at all the dumb-ass models they get for soap operas. They can’t act for shit.
Some actors are like idiot savants. They cannot hold an intelligent conversation, but give them a character to play and they blossom.
‘Course I wouldn’t say that about K-Stew….not with Lex in the thread.
“it’s like, you know, like, whatever, you know, like, you know, intimating and like you know?”
These are clearly children! Dakota Fanning is young and comes across as the more mature of the two, but most nineteen-year-olds seem far more grown up than KS. She’s not dumb, she just seems mentally young for her age. And she looks like a kid.
yeah, there are about 30 unnecessary “like”s thrown in there.
not that this is unexpected from someone that age, but to imbue Stewart (as Jeff has) with this nascent-myth status is a bit odd given that she has the apparent intellectual depth of a kiddie pool.
i’m not saying she won’t be a great actress, but from what i’ve seen, Jeff’s infatuation seems a bit unwarranted, IMO.
Dakota is like a grizzled vet at 15 years old already.
“Lately I’ve made a life choice to stop with self-loathing and wasting my time, and I’ve started acting, taking workshops and doing short films and doing scene study with actors and actresses….
Hey Lex, as weird as this is to type this to someone I’ve never actually met, I’m glad to hear this.”
I couldn’t agree more. I hope this life choice works out for you. When you’re not being suicidal and self-loathing, you’re totally aces, and I really enjoy your writing. However, when you’re simply wallowing in it publicly, it’s not what we want. Be the LexG we all admire and want.
“But I think actors – the best ones, anyway – generally require a decent level of intelligence to portray someone else convincingly.”
I think this is certainly true of most if not all of the *unattractive* character actors in Hollywood. But there are plenty of stupid actors.
“Look at all the dumb-ass models they get for soap operas. They can’t act for shit.”
Can you point to examples of people publicly known for their intelligence who have then jumped into acting and mad a splash with any great performances? Granted, I can only think of cameos, but… they’re not good. Hell, Barack Obama wasn’t even convincing reading lines as himself on ‘The Colbert Report’.
“to imbue Stewart (as Jeff has) with this nascent-myth status is a bit odd given that she has the apparent intellectual depth of a kiddie pool.”
My thoughts exactly. In Jeff and LexG’s case I think it simply stems from having a crush on her due to her wounded dove looks and personality. She seems damaged and some guys are attracted to that.
