MTV Interview: Kristen and Joan Jett”

Along with the slues of videos of Kristen from Sundance we have already seen, MTV has up another one, accompanied by a great interview. As most of us know, Kristen will be portraying Joan Jett in the up-coming, The Runaways.

“I’m, like, vibrating,” grinned Stewart when we asked about “The Runaways,” a 1970’s-era flick about the influential all-girl rock band fronted by Jett and Lita Ford. “I’m just so excited about that movie.”

“I’m really, exceedingly, more excited than normal,” she laughed.

Directed by Floria Sigismondi, the flick will tell the story of the teenage band who were brought together and thrown into leather and lace, performing such sneer-filled songs as “Cherry Bomb.” Although they barely lasted four years and only put out a handful of albums, the band was able to overcome their sleazy “jailbait” gimmick to become an influential punk band that would eventually help birth such successors as The Breeders, L7 and The Donnas.

Kristen: Adventure Land

LA Times has a great article about Kristen’s new Movie ‘Adventureland’ and the Sundance film festival.

On Tuesday morning, tickets to the movie starring “Twilight” actress Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg were still available for sale even as the theater lights dimmed. (The movie’s Monday night premiere sold out.)

Sundance programming director John Cooper made it perfectly obvious why: “By the time this screening is over, you’ll have a new president.” Wild cheering ensued.

The “Adventureland” cast and crew, including director Greg Mottola (“Superbad”) were MIA, so the standard post-screening Q&A didn’t take place. But the crowd around me seemed pleased. Especially younger filmgoers — who may have been surprised to see their favorite female star get randy (and naked, though it’s all shadows) in the movie.
