Kristen Stewart Talks Joan Jett and The Runaways
06.18.09 by REELZ
Twilight leading lady Kristen Stewart has swapped her brown pants and long hair for skinny jeans and a black mullet, in order to play seventies rock icon Joan Jett in The Runaways. Talking to British newspaper The Daily Mail, Stewart said:
I'm just listening to her music all the time. I'm trying to just make myself aware of the time period and what she was going through. It's one of the most immense responsibilities to play a real person. Her story's important. It's an incredibly triumphant feminist story really.
Wow, is that enthusiasm we see? It looks like Stewart has finally found a project to her liking, and it's one that doesn't include vampires, teen romance, or Robert Pattinson. Stewart and the real Joan Jett have already been spotted at a recording studio together, no doubt perfecting Stewart's voice, which was last heard in Into the Wild. It's a good job New Moon filming has wrapped, or Bella would be looking more rock 'n' roll than Stephenie Meyer ever intended her to.
