All Hail The New Meryl Streep And Marlon Brando

October 21, 2010 / Posted by:

Some say that Kristen Stewart has the charisma and acting skills of a KFC chicken bone that has fallen out of a trash can in an alley way and left for the mangy cats of the neighborhood to chew on. Okay the “some” might have been me after watching two Twilight movies (I deserve your judgments) and The Runaways (I deserve your judgments, the sequel). But James Woods and the director of Welcome to the Rileys disagree with that shit and think that Kirsten Stewart’s gonna needs a bigger shelf for all the Oscars she’s going to collect in the future.

At a screening for WTTR, James Woods, who will be directing Kristen in her next movie, compared her to Marlon Brando and Robert DeNiro. If we ever need a poster child for the “Friends Don’t Let Friends Talk About Kristen Stewart’s Acting Skills While High On Coke Campaign“, James Woods is it!

“The really great ones kind of submerge themselves. I always say that Kristen is like Brando, and I’ve always thought that she had that incredible sort of internal ability to submerge into the role and be lost in it in a good way. You know, so I see that with the best actors, DeNiro’s like that, so many good actors are like that.

I have from the second I saw her in the Panic Room. I just thought this kid has something different. She just has something different.

She just has insight, that unique insight that certain people have. You’re not getting a cookie cutter performance. You’re getting something that you don’t expect. You don’t know where to go and you kind of take the ride. I think she has the potential to be one of the best of her generation if not the best.”

Jake Scott, the director of Welcome to the Rileys, is marching right behind James Woods in the parade of love for Kristen Stewart’s acting. Jake told MTV that Kristen’s acting is like that Meryl Street stuff. By “stuff” he didn’t mean the remnants of a Meryl Streep bowel movement. No, he meant she’s got that thespian magic.

“She’s grown up, you know. She’s a woman now. She was a girl, or a young woman, when I first met her… I’ve known her three years and she’s just become this wonderful woman. She’s gonna do some um… I mean.. That’s some Meryl Streep stuff, you know?”

First it was “Megan Fox is the next Katharine Hepburn” and now this?!

Since it’s bound to be said in the next few months, let’s just get it out of the way now. If we do it all at once it will hurt less. JUSTIN BIEBER IS THE NEW JOHN LENNON! WILLOW SMITH IS THE NEW TINA TURNER! NOAH CYRUS IS THE NEW MAE WEST!
