And I’m booing at Kristen Stewart for those sad, flaccid middle fingers. If you’re going to double flip a trick off, do it with feeling. Those middle fingers are like a sad, soft whisper. I’m surprised she gets so much ass with that tragic finger action. But I digress!
Now that KStew is done with promoting Cafe Society, the movie that turtle turd Woody Allen directed her in, she has moved on to pushing her other new movie Personal Shopper at Cannes. Personal Shopper was directed by Olivier Assayas, who directed her in Clouds of Sils Maria, and it’s about a personal shopper who is also a medium. Kristen Stewart as a ghost whisperer makes sense. The ghosts probably talk to her ass because they think she’s one of them: dead and cold. The movie’s reviews have been mixed, but many critics have said that Kristen Stewart gives the performance of her career, and I’m going to take that to mean that she blinks and lip bites like she’s never blinked and lip bit before.
Apparently, not everyone loved it and some audience members hit the screen with a wave of boos after it ended. Variety says that a press conference for the movie today, KStew rolled her eyes and said it was just a few people who booed. Olivier said that they probably booed because his movie’s ending is just too arty for them.
Stewart and the rest of the “Personal Shopper” cast interjected to note that the harsh reaction was not universal. “Hey, everyone did not boo,” Stewart said with a chuckle.
At another point, Assayas argued that the audience was put off by the film’s ambiguous closing. “It happens to me once in a while where people just don’t get the ending,” he said.
Booing at Cannes is kind of a thing. Pulp Fiction, Taxi Driver and The Tree of Life were all hit with boos when they screened at Cannes.
But are they sure the booing came from living humans? Are we sure those boos didn’t come from actual ghosts who were cheering over their kind getting some screen time? And I bet that Kristen Stewart loves that the movie was booed. She’d probably be grossed out if they clapped and gave the movie a standing ovation, because that would mean it’s loved by the mainstream and eww at that.
Here’s more of KStew at the photo call for Personal Shopper today.
