Kristen Stewart in a scene from Twilight with her co-star and ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson.
In The Clouds of Sils Maria,
Kristen Stewart s celebrity has
been inverted. The paparazzi
rush right past her.
She plays the efficient, constantly
e-mailing assistant to Juliette Binoche s
famed European actress. Reading tabloid
stories about a Hollywood starlet
(played by Chloe Grace Moretz), she
shrugs: "It s celebrity news. It s fun."
When she s running through possible
roles for her boss, the former Twilight
star describes one film as having were-
wolves "for some reason."
"I had to seriously harness the glee
that was exploding across my face when
I was saying some of those lines,"
Stewart said in an interview. "I don t
think that s what the movie is fully
about. It s not a commentary about the
insane nature of the media in the States,
especially. But no one knows about that
more than me."
Stewart, 24, doesn t seem so much
like she s fleeing her teen idol past as
she s already long gone, maybe just
glancing back, with a wink. The Clouds
of Sils Maria, directed by French film-
maker Olivier Assayas (Carlos, Summer
Hours), which opens in theaters April
10, is part of a string of recent and
upcoming films Stewart has made in
a headlong rush.
"I m having more fun now than I
ever have," says Stewart. "These movies
go by (she snaps her fingers). We made
Camp X-Ray in 20 days. It s just better
when it s faster."
The frenetic pace is in stark contrast
to the plodding demands of a five-film
franchise like Twilight. The movies
now are largely independent, and the
roles (like in Sils Maria) are often sup-
porting or part of an ensemble. She
co-starred as Julianne Moore s daughter
in Still Alice and played a Guantanamo
guard in Camp X-Ray.
She s completed a science-fiction
romance (Equals), a stoner thriller
(American Ultra) and a New York mug-
ging drama (Anesthesia). She s been
filming Kelly Reichardt s adaptation of
Maile Meloy short stories, and she s to
co-star in Woody Allen s next film.
"Because of the lack of expectation
of any of these movies, there were no
moments that people had read in a
book that were the most important
thing in their lives," she says, referring
to her Twilight role. "I really let go."
Shew adds she s "gotten a lot better
at trusting myself and not thinking that
you need to use these nerves and crazy
inertia to convince everyone on the set
that you re legitimate."
Stewart s post-Twilight work reveals
(or perhaps reminds) that her nature
is less as a megawatt star than an
actress bent on naturalism, instinct
and inquisitiveness. She has basically
returned to making much the same
kind of indies she made outside of Twi-
light: Adventureland, Welcome to the
Rileys, The Runaways. There s a distinct
lack of preciousness in choosing projects
or any evident career-building.
"All my favorite actors are not people
that go off and make these characters
that are iron-clad perfect," Stewart
says. "I want to see people willing to
go places they re not determining. You
want to see the surprise in people s
Assayas approached Stewart for
Clouds of Sils Maria on the suggestion
of producer Charles Gillibert, who had
worked with Stewart on the Jack Ker-
ouac adaption On the Road, also a
French production. Stewart says she
never got the script ("and in their very
French way they didn t call or ask or
push"), so the role was cast for Mia
Wasikowska. After Wasikowska dropped
out, Stewart came aboard.
"It s really something that you have
not seen her in," Assayas said at the
Cannes Film Festival, where the film
first premiered. "Kristen, whatever
image one has of her, ultimately she s
just a great actress by any standard."
She has certainly won the French
over. In February, she became the first
American actress to ever win a Cesar,
France s top film award, for her per-
formance in Clouds of Sils Maria.
Of the actor-publicist relationship
Stewart says: "It s always more com-
plicated than: Go get me water. "
Though she s playing a character on
the opposite side of fame, it may be
the role closest to Stewart herself.
"It s so not a departure. It s a world that I know
so well and that I ve observed so much of," Stewart
says. "I really wasn t trying to be anyone else."
In person, Stewart seems to physically shrink,
balled up in a defensive pose, her sleeves pulled over
her hands. She never exactly loosens up, but she s
animated when talking about her inspirations and
her newfound creative freedom. (AP)
With a wink to Twilight, Stewart speeds forward
