Joan Jett talks to "She" about rock and The Runaways - Kristen Mention

On her involvement with The Runaways movie:

I wanted to be around for the filming. You know, the reason I never cared about a movie about my life was that I didn’t want anyone to f--k it up. I would be so crazy if someone made a Runaways movie that I hated, you know?

On Kristin Stewart playing her in the film:

I was thrilled … I met up with Kristen and we got along really well … she really studied me — she got down my body language, my voice inflections, expressions. We’re actually very similar. We’re a lot alike, in our energy, when we talk about stuff, being all over the map.[Laughs]

She was so committed. I remember asking her, early on, if she was going to cut her hair for the film and she said, "Absolutely." I think that helped her to feel like me, rather than wearing a wig. It was good. She wanted me on the set every day. So that was cool.

On the attention surrounding the kissing scene between Stewart and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie:

You know, I was concerned when I saw it in the script. Concerned isn’t really the word. I guess, yeah, I thought about [the “lesbian” scene] becoming the focus. But you know the media. It is what it is.
