Laurie Halse Anderson, Speak Author, Talks About Kristen in Her Blog


"In other news, Kristen Stewart named Speak as one of the three books that changed her life.

This PSA aired after the first showing of Kristen in the Speak movie. The hotline had never gotten such a tremendous response. Blew. Up. The. Phones.

Someone sent me a link to a recent interview in which she said that the response to both the movie and the PSA helped her see the impact that film can have in people’s lives. She talks about Speak starting at about the 3:40 mark. She was so, so young when she made the movie, but her talent was undeniable. It’s been fun to watch her develop as an actress. (Though when the press hounds her, I get really defensive and want to start yelling at people!)"

  1. Everyone who has worked with her and has gotten to know her a little better has only good things to say about her! And that shows a lot about her quality as a person! She is a wonderful human being in every aspect and that's why we love her! Stay strong Kristen! We've always been & are here for you!

  2. Hi Alma, Ingi and all you at Robsten Dreams. My Name is Jenna and I am from Australia. I have been a huge Robsten fan since they first started going out and I hope that what I am hearing about them getting back together is true because there is just this light and smile that comes out of both of them when they are together. I am so glad that you guys have not abandoned them like so many others, and I agree that no matter what goes on in the personal lives of Rob and Kristen people shouldn't judge them on mistakes they make. I all honesty I think no one has a right to say these mean things to either of them. regarding this cheating scandal, I don't condone her actions but I still admire Kristen and I believe that people should not be treating her they way they are, in the end nobody knows what the situation was that led to it and I think that the person that Kristen should have to face and the only person is Rob that's it don't you agree. I am glad that there both OK, I was a little worried about Kristen though because she seemed to be taking it really hard and she looks as if she's lost weight, there is just a sadness in her eyes. Rob I believe was too angry and heartbroken to feel anything else. I am glad all the anger has calmed down and he's got a clear head and realized that no matter what she did he still cares about her and he still loves her and he can't stay away from her forever. Do you think he made the right choice by leaving in the beginning of all this? I love Kristen so much I have been a fan of hers since the first Twilight came out and I've seen all her movies. When she talked about speak and how it taught her a lot about life and how film can impact people. This shows what a humble, compassionate caring young woman Kristen is, she dreams of opening up a halfway house for victims of Domestic violence. I was in year 8 when Twilight came out and I like many fell in love with Rob his laugh, his wit and his charm made me laugh so much and brightened me up on my bad days I like the way that he is a gentlemen and that he treats women with respect and in a kind manner, but for me It was Kristen that I looked up to the most because at that young age I saw Kristen who was 17 at the time, she was very shy and insecure but I saw that she was passionate and that although she was shy it was OK. I am shy too, I am insecure about my height, I have a genetic disorder called Turners Syndrome which means that I am a tiny person (look it up on Google), I am not very coordinated I fall down a lot too, I look at myself in the mirror and think, I will never find a husband whose going to be attracted to this. I kept to myself and read books, Twilight mainly when I first went to High School. It was something Kristen said and something she always says, you can't be anyone but yourself and don't ever let anyone change you for anything and you know what she lives by that statement she's nothing but herself and we got to see more of who she is when she got a little more comfortable in interviews, she's funny, compassionate and strong. Kristen has inspired me to be whoever I want to be and to feel comfortable in my skin, I want to be a teacher, I want to work with children and Kristen helped me realize that I don't have to be what someone else wants me to be I can be who I am. I am 18 and about to finish high school and Kristen has been like the best friend I have ever had, she has shown me what it means to be a strong, compassionate woman and to follow my dreams and my passions. she's my role model although I know she doesn't see herself that way especially in light of whats happened. I would thank her a million times over. I am new to Robsten Dreams but your site is amazing, I love how you respect both Rob and Kristen and won't tolerate any drama and people saying nasty things, it's not nice and I think it just makes Kristen feel even worse and It won't help the situation.

    1. Thank you, thank you so much. I really hope I get to meet her. I live in Australia but maybe if she gets the chance to come down to Melbourne I will get to meet her and I will tell her how much she has helped me, she might not believe it but it's true everything. I used to Have growth Hormone injections when I was younger every night, I don't have them anymore I only wish I had Kristen back then she would make me feel so much better. sometimes when I have a bad day or I get upset I turn to Kristen and I go on the blog sites or watch a funny interview she did and my day gets better so much better. Kristen has been here for me unknowingly all the way through high school.

  4. Hi Alma, Ingi and everyone at Robsten Dreams. My name is Jenna and I live in Australia. I am new to this blog but I really love it, I think it is a wonderful site and it's great that you won't tolerate any drama or nasty comments. I am a big fan of both Rob and Kristen and I agree together or not they are still amazing people and great actors. Although I loved them being together because of the love and happiness you could see in them, when they look at each other or when there arms are around each other. I am glad to hear that they are both doing OK. I worry for Kristen though she seemed to be taking it hard, she looked so sad in those Pics in Toronto, she smiled and talked to fans and did interviews but it didn't quite touch her eyes or her voice. I am glad she stuck with Garret so that If she needed a break or if she was afraid she could turn to him. I think she was pleasantly surprised at the fan support she got don't you think? I have been a huge Kristen and Rob fan since the first Twilight came out, I was 14 at the time and I like so many girls fell in love with Robert Pattinson, I love his charm and his wit, he makes me laugh so much and he just makes me happy on really sad days. I love how he treats women with respect and dignity and is a gentlemen and the fact he plays piano is really cute I think. But I look up to Kristen so much, I admire her greatly. At that young age I needed someone outside of my family to look up too and that person was Kristen, when I first saw her she was 17 and she was so shy and insecure in interviews and what got me interested is what she had to say, although sometime you can't really understand her and the fact that she didn't let her shyness stop her from doing anything. As I got older, I was shy too, barely spoke to anyone I was that girl who read books in the library rather then hanging out and going out with people. I am insecure about my Height because I am one of the shorter people. I have a genetic disorder called Turners Syndrome (Google it if you want) which means that I am a shorter person. Kristen has shown me that It's OK to be insecure, it's OK to be shy and it is 100% OK to be different but you shouldn't let it define you ever. Kristen is one of the strongest women I have ever seen. She empowered me to be strong and to believe in myself a little more. when Kristen said and she always says this, always be who you are nobody else, never let anybody take that away from you , never let people push you down and tell you who you should be. And she lives by it, from that little 17 year old girl she's blossomed into a beautiful, strong independent woman who is compassionate and sweet and protective of herself, her heart and those closest to her. It's easy to see that she loves all living things I mean look at the way that she gets around animals, she melts it's the same with children, with Mackenzie she's a very proud big sister who will always be right there to help her if ever she needs it. she is passionate about what she believes in, her movies, empowering women and young people and helping others. I think we all see that girl, this amazing woman and that's who we love despite silly mistakes do you agree? I think that' the person Rob sees too, that's the woman he fell in love with and guess what she's still that woman. Kristen has been my best friend although she doesn't know it all though High School and now I am about to finish and Kristen has inspired me to be whoever I want to be and to be comfortable in my own skin, I am now a very happy, smiley, warm, caring, compassionate, strong woman all because of Kristen and I would thank her many times if i ever get to meet her for helping me become the person I am. I want to be a teacher and Kristen has inspired me to follow my passions and my dreams and I am. You guys are my go to source for everything Rob and Kristen, Keep at it and don't listen to anyone that tells you otherwise.

  8. The people who "really" see Kristen will always support her. I admire her courage to admit her mistake. That's the character i see in a good person.

    2. Jenna, what a sweet inspirational letter you have written. I too, hope that someday Kristen will see your letters and know how much support she had when so much hate was flying around. Many people only saw the surface and what they wanted to see. Kristen and Rob refuse to let themselves become typical HW stars and seem determined to remain regular people just like us (except with more $$$ of course). That's why we love them. The first movie I saw Kris in was "Speak". She blew me away, and I have watched her movies ever since. Twilight was the first movie I saw Rob in, but it was not the movie that intrigued me as much as the connection these two had at such a young age. It just jumped in your face, and has become stronger all the time. I can't believe that everyone doesn't see it. They don't have to show PDA, all they have to do is look at each other. Anyway, maybe the worst is over and they can live their lives as they want. I just want them to keep making movies. It is wonderful that you have found hope and strength in Kristen, and my wish for you is that good things will happen for you. Stay strong.
