Kristen Stewart, in the post mortem of her cheating scandal, says that she wants to work with Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan. “If someone offers me a good script, I would love to work in a Bollywood film. I would love to work with Hrithik Roshan. He is such a wonderful actor and so good-looking,” Stewart said in a statement.
A lot of people were looking to write the trampire off, assuming that her summer indiscretion with a married man, her director, Rupert Sanders, would send her career into its twilight. A possible collaboration would do more than just grease the wheels of tabloids who have already written her off as Angelina Jolie’s man eater successor. Granted, cheating did give her a personality beyond blank expressions, but she’s no Angelina Jolie.
Outside of the Twilight juggernaut, Kristen has a chance to prove her worth as an actress. Her limited range was the first asterisk besides her name. Granted, Bella Swan isn’t the most challenging lead. The heroine of Edward’s dreams and a stain on self empowered women everywhere doesn’t do much beyond pine after her guy. She looks up at him, pouts and repeats her lines in a monotone voice. Good actors can turn subpar material into award winning roles and accolades, but Kristen has had more challenging roles outside of Twilight and it’s been the same lather, rinse and repeat performances.
Starring opposite Hrithik Roshan isn’t a guarantee that Kristen will be making a Heisman rush to the Oscar podium. It could very well be more of the same and if you’re one of the highest paid actresses in the world and can put butts into movie theaters, there’s no real incentive to aspire beyond the status quo of one’s abilities. But if Kristen is dedicated to her craft, she’ll do more than just the bare minimum. She will do more than just recite lines with as little emotion possible. She’ll act. For a while there, she had the masses convinced of her eternal wuv for Robert before she drove a stake into his heart; bring more of that conviction on screen.
