Kristen ให้สัมภาษณ์ WWD ที่งาน CHANEL Metiers d’Art Show 2017/2018 in Hamburg

ยังไม่ยืนยัน ว่าจะแสดงเรื่อง “Charlie’s Angels” ที่จะนำมาสร้างใหม่ กำกับโดย Elizabeth Banks หรือไม่

ข่าวลือ Kristen จะแสดงเรื่อง Charlie’s Angels (Reboot)

Kristen Stewart won’t say if she’s officially on board for Sony’s “Charlie’s Angels” reboot but she’s a big fan of the project. Speaking after Chanel’s Métiers d’Art show in Hamburg on Wednesday, the actress revealed she is up to speed with the planned film, to be directed by Elizabeth Banks.

“Whoever ends up being in that movie, I can tell you right now – because I’m friends with Liz Banks – I mean, I can tell you it’s going to be really good,” she said, adding that she is a fan of the story about members of a female private detective agency.

“I think it’s a good time right now to do another one, because we’ve all changed so much. Women have changed so much, or at least maybe just, you know, perception and the cadence and volume of the voice of women has definitely changed. And I know Liz pretty well, and she’s going to reflect that, and I think it’ll be something to be really proud of,” she added.

The “Twilight” actress, who in recent years has starred mainly in independent films, has also made her first foray into directing with the short “Come Swim,” recently released as part of Refinery29’s female-focused Shatterbox Shorts program.

Fittingly – since the venue of the Chanel show was the Elbphilharmonie concert hall overlooking the port of Hamburg – the film is all about water.

“It scares me. It’s just it’s something that’s so essential and vital, yet so utterly overpowering, and it’s kind of one of those things, you know, it’s just a really good metaphor: if you fight something like that, you’re going to tire and drown,” Stewart said, adding that the film is about allowing yourself to float rather than struggle.

… …
Talk about a homecoming. Karl Lagerfeld won a standing ovation after showing his latest Métiers d’Art collection for Chanel on Wednesday at the Elbphilharmonie, the spectacular concert hall designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron that overlooks the port of Hamburg, the town where he was born.

Celebrities including Kristen Stewart, Tilda Swinton and Lily-Rose Depp jumped to their feet as the designer took his bow with his godson Hudson Kroenig, while models in sailor caps stood in formation around a live orchestra conducted by British cellist Oliver Coates, who composed a special score for the occasion.

Stewart, dressed in a white tank top with frayed white patchwork pants and high-heeled sandals, picked up on the workwear-inspired elements of the show, which saw models circling down from the rafters in a complicated circuit that took in every level of the auditorium.

“A lot of the stuff was very utilitarian, and I don’t want to say buttoned-up, implying that it’s stuffy, because I’ve never seen anything remotely, like, surplus-y, look so beautiful,” she said.

“It was really cool that the models came right up in front of the band like they were almost dancers for them, and it was very confronting, because they’re really addressing the audience rather than just the photographers at the end of a line, which is kind of typical for a fashion show, so I liked the interactive nature of it,” the actress added.

Kristen Stewart on how she turned a fixation into her directing debut and whether she’d ever helm a ‘Twilight’-style blockbuster

As a child actress growing up on the sets for films like Panic Room and Catch That Kid, Kristen Stewart learned early on to pay close attention to the director behind the camera. “That’s your boss,” she tells Yahoo Entertainment about her earliest memories of watching filmmakers at work. “You look to that person for everything. When a movie is really good, it takes a lot of people’s efforts. But what starts it is something so singular with a specific perspective. Even when I was really little, I knew that my job was to listen to that [perspective] and hold it like it was precious. And even as a little kid, I was like, ‘F**k, I’d like to hold that myself one day and share it!’”

Flash-forward to the present day, and the now 27-year-old actress is sharing her own directorial debut with the world, the evocative short film Come Swim. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the 17-minute production is being released today as part of Refinery 29’s Shatterbox Anthology, which provides a platform to emerging female filmmakers. Starring first-time actor Josh Kaye, Come Swim grew out of a recurring image that embedded itself in Stewart’s mind several years ago and became the linchpin for a half-realist, half-impressionist portrait of a man whose mind is plagued by memories of a failed love affair, to the point where he feels like he’s drowning even on dry land. We spoke with Stewart about how she relates to the character we see onscreen and whether she has any desire to direct a Twilight-style blockbuster.

Kristen Stewart Shoots Her Directorial Debut At Thunder

What a pleasure to work with Kristen Stewart, Starlight Studios and Scott Free Productions on ‘Come Swim’ for Refinery29. The short film premiered at Sundance, has a special screening at Cannes and a limited engagement at the Museum of Modern Art.

As an actress, she’s worked with a number of today’s auteurs such as Woody Allen, Jodie Foster, Olivier Assayas and Sean Penn, and now Kristen Stewart is stepping behind the camera with her directorial debut short  Come Swim’

Reminiscent of Terrence Malick’s cinematic poetry in its metaphorical, visceral images and whispering voice-overs by Stewart, Come Swim follows a young man’s emotional pan as he is oversaturated and then parched by water. He’s played by Josh Kaye, a non-pro whose natural talent Stewart was drawn to and harnessed throughout the 17-minute piece.

Director Kristen Stewart Is ‘Adapting Something’ for Her Next Film Project

.

Kristen Stewart recently made her directorial debut with the short “Come Swim,” and is already back at it. The actress — and now, director — noted that she’s working on “adapting something” for her next project. Has directing taught her anything new about acting?

“To be honest not really,” she said while attending The Museum of Modern Art’s Film Benefit honoring Julianne Moore on Monday night. Stewart went on to describe her interest in directing and acting as rooted in the same intention.

“Just from a really young age I’ve always thought — even if it wasn’t a great film, if there’s something to be said by someone and it’s a singular perspective and you have essentially 100 to 200 people supporting that, I always just grew up thinking I wanted that,” she said. “I wanted to hold that responsibility. And I wanted to protect something precious, and give people an opportunity to be seen, and in a really true way. I just love this s–t, I’m just happy to be doing it.”

Interview : Director Kristen Stewart Dives Into Grief in Directorial Debut “Come Swim”

Kristen Stewart‘s directing ambitions go all the way back to when she was an 11-year-old performing in the 2002 David Fincher thriller “Panic Room.”

“I was working with Jodie Foster and I was like, ‘I’m going to direct. I’m going to be the youngest director that exists,’” Stewart recalled in an interview. When she, years later, told Foster she was finally making something, Stewart says, “She was like, ‘Dude, the first thing you’re going to realize is that you have nothing to learn.”

It took longer than Stewart expected, but she has now made a short film titled “Come Swim.” Following premieres at the Sundance Film Festival 2017 and the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, “Come Swim” debuted Friday on the women’s entertainment and lifestyles website Refinery29.

Director Kristen Stewart Talks Directing Debut “Come Swim”

Kristen Stewart’s short “Come Swim” marks the actress’s directorial debut, turning a vision she had in her head for some time into a film now available for streaming globally.

Stewart was on hand Thursday evening briefly speaking about the film’s creation and the thinking behind it following a private screening at the Westside Pavilion. “Come Swim” tracks a day in the life of a man grappling with a broken heart, delving inside his personal thoughts and emotions that become so crippling before he eventually comes to and realizes he will be fine.

“It was like when you are so in your own head,” Stewart explained to those in attendance at the screening. “You have things, feelings that, in a really cliché way, are feelings you just think nobody could possibly relate to. Yet, they’re the most standard. There’s not, like, a thought or a feeling you’re going to have that nobody’s had before you, but somehow when you’re in that, you’re so alone. I wanted to be able to really step inside someone’s head and externalize that and then be able to take a step back afterwards and be like from the outside we see you so clearly.”

Water plays a symbolic role in the film, the idea of which Stewart said had been stuck in her head for some time.

“It started with just the idea that somebody might be laying in a totally inhospitable place, such as the bottom of the ocean and yet be so happy and so content doing that and wondering why that may be he case,” Stewart said. “We initially immerse [the main character] in the most hydrated environment possible, yet he’s absorbing none of it. [It] was something I couldn’t get out of my head and then I let it expand into [this].

The piece, which was earlier shown at Sundance Film Festival 2017 and the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, is part of Refinery 29’s Shatterbox Anthology short film series which looks to specifically highlight work from female filmmakers.

“When we launched Shatterbox Anthology over a year-and-a-half ago we were hoping for a moment like this,” Refinery 29 chief content officer Amy Emmerich said while on stage at the preview with Stewart, “where women absolutely have a seat at the table and voices like this is exactly what you’re hearing: her full creative freedom. Her voice. Her pictures. No notes. This.”

Kristen Stewart Explains Why She Didn’t Cast Herself in Her Short Directorial Debut, ‘Come Swim’

With her short debut, the longtime actress is beginning to realize her dream of becoming a filmmaker in her own right — which often means letting go of material by casting outside herself.

Kristen Stewart’s second act isn’t just in the works, it’s here. The long-time actress — at age 27, she’s already been acting professionally for more than half her life — initially dreamed of being a filmmaker, a desire she’s lately been putting into practice through short-form directorial opportunities, including a Chvrches music video and her directorial film debut, the short “Come Swim.” The film bowed earlier this year at Sundance, before going on to screen at Cannes and, most recently, a slot as part of Sundance’s traveling Short Film Tour.

Produced as part of Refinery29’s Shatterbox Anthology — a collection of short films all made by women, and of every stripe, from well-known names like Stewart to rising stars like Courtney Hoffman — the film’s short synopsis bills it as “a diptych of one man’s day; half impressionist and half realist portraits.” Part dreamy (and often unnerving) fable, part hard-won drama, the film hinges both on its formal elements, including editing by Jacob Secher Schulsinger (Ruben Ostlund’s regular collaborator, Stewart herself is a huge fan of their “Force Majeure”) and sound design by Matt Vowles, along with a stunning turn from star Josh Kaye, a first-time actor.

At the film’s New York premiere, held last night at the Museum of Modern Art as part of their Future Imperfect sci-fi series, Stewart explained why she choose to cast a newbie like Kaye in such a demanding role. Turns out, she initially toyed with casting herself in the part.

Early in the process, Stewart approached a few other actors, before settling on Kaye. “I kind of propositioned a couple actors that I knew who were busy, and ultimately I was like, ‘Either I’ll do it myself or I’ll hire someone who is just like a buddy.’ Looking back on it, it was probably like the most fruitful relationship I had the whole time. I’m really happy [that’s] how it happened to fall out.”

She added, “I didn’t want like an ‘actor boy’ to do [the part], and I couldn’t jump on it myself, because I really was looking for a transference of energy. I wanted to give someone something and see what they could do with it, not just do it myself, even though I wanted to so badly. I recognized a sameness, like a willingness. He’s so fucking talented, it’s crazy. He’s never done anything, and he’s just a friend of mine.”

When asked if she had ever considered letting another actress play the lead role, and if she was at all stuck on the gender of the part, Stewart explained, “To be honest, to me, there was absolutely no difference between– he could have been a girl, it doesn’t matter.”

Last October at the New York Film Festival, Stewart’s excitement about the next stage of her career was obvious. “That is the most satisfying thing I have ever done,” she said. “As an actor, you’re like a little thing that can help everyone feel this, but when it comes from you — it’s like validation in the most ultimate. You’re not alone. Like, ‘I see you, girl. I see you, and I get it.’ It’s like, ‘Yes!’

Stewart’s passion for film-making isn’t wavering, either. At Cannes, she told our Anne Thompson that she was continuing to develop material for herself to direct, and at last night’s premiere, she shyly told the crowd she’s in the process of wooing an author whose work she is eager to adapt into her first feature.
