MoviesOnline sat down with Kristen Stewart (“Twilight,” “Into the Wild”) to talk about her new movie, “Adventureland,” written and directed by Greg Mottola (“Superbad”). The film features a talented cast that also includes Jesse Eisenberg (“The Squid and the Whale”), Ryan Reynolds (“Definitely, Maybe,” “X-Men Origins”), and “Knocked Up” cast members Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, and Martin Starr.
It’s the summer of 1987, and recent college grad James Brennan (Jesse Eisenberg) can't wait to embark on his dream tour of Europe. But when his parents (Wendie Malick and Jack Gilpin) announce they can no longer afford to subsidize his trip, James takes a menial job at a local amusement park. Instead of German beer, world-famous museums and cute French girls, James’ summer will now be filled with belligerent dads, stuffed pandas, and screaming kids high on cotton candy. Lucky for him, what should have been his worst summer ever turns into an amazing adventure as he discovers love in the most unlikely place with his captivating co-worker, Em (Kristen Stewart).
Kristen Stewart was introduced to worldwide audiences with her outstanding performance alongside Jodie Foster in “Panic Room.” Her most recent film, “Twilight,” was one of the most successful films of 2008 grossing over $300 million worldwide. She recently began shooting the Twilight sequel, “New Moon,” after which she will headline the Joan Jett biopic, “The Runaways,” followed by “Eclipse,” the third installment of the Twilight saga.
Here’s what the super talented Kristen Stewart had to tell us about “Adventureland” and her upcoming projects:
MoviesOnline: Kristen, can you tell me what you're wearing?
Kristen Stewart: Oh, I don't know. I would. I'm not being secretive about it. I just don't know. I just saw it and went, 'I like that.'
MoviesOnline: So a stylist didn't do this?
Kristen Stewart: Oh, no. I saw it on a rack and said, 'Yeah. I'll wear that.'
MoviesOnline: Is it weird to get asked fashion questions about what you’re wearing all the time?
Kristen Stewart: Yeah, it is so weird for me because it's not something that I think about a whole lot and it’s such a large aspect of that area of media. It's weird.
MoviesOnline: Did Greg [Mottola] tell you if your character was based on someone that he knew?
Kristen Stewart: I think that she was based somewhat on compiled girlfriends of his in the past, a melding of a couple of different people, failed relationships with girls who were kind of damaged, but not a specific person. So it wasn't one relationship that he had in the movie. ( MoreCollapse )
