2016 Cannes Film Festival: Kristen Stewart Talks ‘Personal Shopper’
CANNES, France — Following Olivier Assayas’ “The Clouds of Sils Maria,” which was partly financed by Chanel in 2014 and won Kristen Stewart France’s César award, the storied Paris label is once more contributing to the budget of the French director’s new flick. Called “Personal Shopper,” the ghost story set in the fashion world again stars Stewart and competes for the Palme d’Or, the film festival’s main prize.
“It’s Chanel-centric — incredibly so,”Stewart teased at a dinner Chanel co-hosted with Vanity Fair France at Tetou in Golfe Juan on Thursday night, drawing the likes of Blake Lively, Kirsten Dunst, Mads Mikkelsen, Naomi Watts, Susan Sarandon and Gaspard Ulliel. “And I play somebody who is very, very attracted to the shiny and beautiful and aesthetic and superficial things that she actually is quite self-hating about — yeah, it’s weird.”
Stewart added about her character: “She kinda has mad identity issues, and so the only way to tell that story really effectively and in an elevated way was to have the best of the best,” the 26-year-old mused, referring to Chanel, for whom she has become an ambassador and campaign star.
The star of two films at Cannes has discussed living in the media spotlight as a teenager and how she chooses to work with directors with ‘reckless intentions’
Few actors have made the transition from blockbuster lead to arthouse darling with such finesse as Kristen Stewart. The star, who shot to fame with the Twilight franchise in her teens, appears in two films at this year’s Cannes film festival: Woody Allen’s Cafe Society and Personal Shopper, her second film with French director Olivier Assayas – the first, Clouds of Sils Maria, made her the first American woman to win a Cesar award.
That was the unexpectedly great part of it, really — reconnecting with Kristen. There was something really emotional about it, because on Panic Room she was that little 10-year-old girl who I just loved so much. I thought she was the coolest kid ever, and I couldn’t wait to meet her when she grew up. It’s so moving, really, to have her come out and do this kind thing, and I know it’s not easy for her. She’s a little bit of a shaking leaf, and it makes me want to put my arm around her and tell her that I’ll make her dinner, you know?
Both Kristen and Jack O’Connell started acting when they were very young, as you did. Is there a kinship there because of that?
I think there is. It’s a weird way to grow up, and you hone a strange survival skill. Everybody does it differently, but you are forever changed by that experience. So there is a kinship to it. I will say, both Jack and Kristen are just wonderful, genuine people. So much for saying that being a child actor screws you up! They both have prioritized and trusted their authenticity, and that’s really what has made them so real.
