“You can learn so much from bad things. I feel boring. I feel like, Why is everything so easy for me? I can’t wait for something crazy to f***ing happen to me. Just life. I want someone to f*** me over! Do you know what I mean?”- Kristen Stewart to Elle
Obviously that quote’s from more than 2 months ago…And it’s a beautiful summation, albeit a sample taken out of a larger context, of why Kristen Stewart’s unattractive as a human being, at the present moment. She’s one of the most famous and highest paid people in the world, and she’s an ungrateful, immature, clueless child who has allowed herself to be put in a position where she has, for better or worse, influence over others. The public. The Twihards. The next generation. God help them and the Kool-Aid they’re drinking when singing the praises of this girl.
I’m not just saying she’s not talented. Granted, I’ve yet to see much evidence of it. Bella Swan’s a terribly written character so I can’t put it all in her lap. Of course, Runaways was a chance to shine and she just masturbated on camera. Snow White and the Huntsmen was a shiny piece of fluff that she seemed to sleep through while swinging a sword. My favorite performance of hers, (of which I’ve seen almost all) would be Adventureland where she played a manipulative, selfish stoner who didn’t really care about hurting other people and indulged in self-loathing for doing things she knew she probably shouldn’t but wasn’t capable or willing to be responsible enough to choose not to do. It felt like her most honest work. Still does. Because that’s the girl I see, hear and read in every interview.
Is there any time she doesn’t look either bored or stoned? Can she quit complaining about being a celebrity? She’s an industry kid, for God’s sake! How else do you think she got her first auditions, agent and roles? If you think it was raw God-given talent then you don’t understand how the system works. She wasn’t discovered, she defaulted on her whims as a pubescent. If she didn’t want to be a celebrity she shouldn’t have chosen this line of work. She should go to college, like she says she wants to, and stop doing films. All I hear from her is how much the press sucks, the paparazzi make her life miserable, everyone makes the wrong assumptions about her, and she doesn’t want to “spread lies [act] for the rest of her life.” If only she’d follow through with those complaints and retire. If you don’t like what you’re doing and what responsibilities are called upon to continue to allow you the privilege to do what you’re doing, then do something else. Garbo stopped…that’s a ridiculous comparison.
She spouts on and on and on about how the most important thing for her is to be honest. To be honest with herself. To be honest with the people she cares about. For people to think she’s honest after meeting her, “What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, ‘She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.’” She honestly then needs to accept that she chose and continues to choose to live a life scrutinized by the masses. There are ways to skate around it and keep her life private, Hell, look at Johnny Depp! Or her costar Charlize Theron. She can keep a low profile and avoid the BS but she doesn’t. Don’t know why. Hopefully it’s not because she thinks that’d be her acting “dishonest” because it wouldn’t be. It’d be an adult decision and remove a source of headaches for all of us. There’s no shame in adapting, avoiding the traps, learning from mistakes, and making smarter choices with the life you’re living, if that’s the kind of life you continue to want to live. It’s called growing up and accepting the bad with the good. She’d rather bitch and moan.
Is she pretty? Whatever. That’s f***ing subjective. I don’t think so. And I don’t think it has anything to do with her looks. I think it has everything to do with the fact that when I look at her I see a 12 year-old. Being moody isn’t being honest. Being a pain in the ass isn’t being honest. Spouting off recycled adolescent jargon might be honest but it wears thin after a short while. That while passed a long time ago.
I hope she gets her sh*t together. I hope she decides to grow up. I hope she saves her money. I hope nothing bad befalls of her nor anyone else in her life. I hope she acquires the same kind of maturity that Abigail Breslin had at age 10. I just hope she also disappears from the public eye until she does.
Why don’t guys think she’s hot? Because most everything she says and the way she conducts herself screams drama queen, narcissist and child. The first is endless torture to endure. The second will destroy a man from the inside out. The third is…forget it. Too many words have been wasted on her. You know who guys think is hot and would make for a better role model for young women? Jennifer Lawrence. Go check her out. She’s talented, accepts the pros and cons of her celebrity, has been acting since she was a teenager, and is crazy honest.
Katniss beats Bella. BOOM!
