The perpetually tired-looking Stewart is drawn to the darkness and, if she had her way, would start playing the types of characters who want to have sex with their fathers and desert their children. Paging Dr. Freud?
“I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life. I want to play her so bad,” she says referring to Peyton Loftis, a suicidal young girl in love with her father, in a screen adaptation of the novel Lie Down In Darkness. “She’s in love with him. I mean, I think she’s in love with him. It’s not his fault. They’re the most f***ed-up family.”
Kristen goes on to talk about another dream role – Cathy from East of Eden. Cathy is the embodiment of evil and leaves her twin children behind to operate a brothel.
“She’s a psychopathic, evil c**t!” Kristen points out. “I haven’t done that yet!”
That’s correct Kristen. You’ve been playing kissy face with vampires in the grass. I’m surprised Kristen seems so well read. She’s made no bones about calling out her teaching for “failing” her which ultimately led to her being homeschooled.
But the cursing, right? It’s a problem. I’ve been known to throw down some fighting words but not during an interview. Tighten that sh*t up, Kristen! Be a little more professional. I know sometimes it’s easier and more fun to say f*ck but calm down and show us your big girl, Ashley Judd vocabulary.
You’d think someone who enjoys Steinbeck, Styron and Amis would be able to come up with better words than “c*nt” and “f*cked” during a major sit-down. Or is this just Kristen’s charm? Or is she just name-dropping authors to sound smart because she’s insecure about her education?
