[Arriving] RT @TwiHardMonster #KristenStewart is looking really cute she had her blazer on with some cute dress pants. She signed for me no pic but looks great
RT @KstewsSmirk Kristen mentioning the still alice role was very natural thing to do.
And she loved Julianne another reason why she wanted to do the movie
RT @StrictlyRobsten Talked about #StillAlice & working with Julianne Moore. "She could be my mom."
RT @KstewsSmirk Dude. Kristen turned to smile at Tilda and she just grabs her shoulder and smiles at her.
RT @RKMovieNews: Kristen just talked about the respect she has for Julianne Moore and Richard Glatzer #IndieRoundtable #StillAlice
Kristen giggling at Bill Hader's comments about doing table readings. So perfect! #THRIndieRoundtable #AFIFEST2014
RT @abeitotzz Kristen looks like she's dancing on her seat. Swinging back and forth. Cutie
RT @RKMovieNews @ScottFeinberg just called Kristen the "Sundance Queen" and mentioned her many films that appeared there.
RT @KstewsSmirk "Not everyone loves what we are doing but the few of them are like brothers" K on showing her films
RT @KstewsSmirk K talking about not making decision following her gut, not tactical approach about choosing films after doing a big movie like Twilight
she said she doesn't agree with the "one for you and one for me" on making films. Something they mentioned Clooney has said before
If she's interested in something as small as one person or one line in a film she's willing to do a bad movie
Bill hader agreeing with K about doing a movie just because you et to work with someone or say a line they love
RT @AFIFEST "You always want a huge launching pad 4 what u dumped your heart & soul's energy into" #KristenStewart on film fests
RT @robkris13 said she follows her gut when choosing movies; choice can be made based one line, one scene or an actor she'd be working with
RT @AFIFEST "I don't make decisions. I follow the gut. It's not been a tactical approach. I've gotten lucky." #KristenStewart
RT @AFIFEST "I'm not cool enough to fit in the indie scene. I'm the Twilight girl & that's it. But I think it's important to do both." KS
RT @abeitotzz Kristen said they make fun of her dad because he does TV lol
RT @KstewsSmirk Q-If you had the opportunity to go back and give yourself a piece of advice A- just relax dude chill out
RT @StrictlyRobsten "I'd tell myself to chill out, dude."
RT @RKMovieNews "Just relax dude, everything is just fine" Kristen on what she would reinforce herself when she first started making movies
RT @abeitotzz Bill Hayder "I was a PA for a long time" Kristen "ooohhh"
RT @KstewsSmirk Hbg laughing at Bill Haders response. I didn't know he could do that lol.
RT @AFIFEST "My advice to my younger self would have been 'dude - calm down'"
RT @KstewsSmirk "Not feeling like an unprofessional little shit" Kristens comment on jakes answer/advice to his younger self "remember your lines"
RT @Mel452 Ruth was on the side w some flat shoes on the ready for Kristen after it
Were it not for her Twilight fame Kritsen Stewart would still be celebrated as an indie film darling following hits like Still Alice. At the AFI Fest Indie Contenders Panel, Stewart said that both indies and tentpoles have their virtues. “You’re always going to want a huge launching pad for what you poured your life’s energy and soul and heart into, but there is also something that feels cool about the outsider factor of, not everybody loves what we’re doing but the few that do are brothers, do you know what I mean? It feels great to go to Sundance. It’s fun. That’s why I make movies.”‘
Stewart, described by Feinberg as one of the “indie queens,” rejected George Clooney’s idea of the “one for them, one for me” approach — alternating indies and studio films. “I’m genuinely very much blown with the wind, I follow the gut. It’s not a tactical approach. I can greenlight a movie now that I’ve done five Twilight movies, but I just think it’s doing things for the right reason. There’s no way to quantify it. Even if something doesn’t completely equal success, if you don’t go, this script and director and cast and budget [spell success], I’m fully willing to hop on something if I’m interested in one person who’s involved in it, or one line that my character says that I’ve always been dying to say — it’s like, I will make a bad movie. Because it’s like, I’m like, whatever — I didn’t make it myself!”
Feinberg asked each panelist what advice they would give their younger selves starting out in the business. “Just relax, dude, chill out,” said Stewart.
