Kristen Stewart Took 2013 Off Because She Couldn’t Get Acting Roles

Kristen Stewart Took 2013 Off Because She Couldn't Get Acting Roles

One may wonder why Kristen Stewart has been so significantly off-the-radar for the past year, neither promoting nor shooting any films. The simple explanation is, of course, that she’s had no films to promote or shoot, but the real question is why an actress of her fame would be spending an entire film without anything to do. Is it because she wasn’t offered any roles? Was the backlash from her cheating scandal still going strong? Were studios averse to casting her? Was she herself intent on taking a break?

According to Kristen, who’s currently promoting Camp X-Ray in Sundance, it was a combination of everything. She admits to MTV, “I had sort of been considering taking time off for a long time, but this was not planned. I’m a total workaholic, and if there’s something out there that feels worth it, then I will work through Christmas. It doesn’t matter. It was simply because I didn’t find anything that I really dug.”

Well, I doubt she thought Twilight was worth it, but money’s money and a contract is a contract, amirite? Regardless, I’m sure Kristen realized that she needed to disappear from the public eye for a while, considering how vocal the backlash was getting. While her ex-boyfriend started landing role after role, Kristen managed to stay away from making any headlines, whether personal or professional.

And now, after taking enough time off, she’s started landing more films, meaning her break was actually a smart idea. Even if she wasn’t offered anything worth her while over the last year, it looks like financiers are no longer looking at her as a risk, meaning she can go back to making her little-seen indie films that she excelled at before Twilight came along.

    I am beyond frustrated with the OBSESSIVE infighting
    of Twilight Fans, and the New Year’s Eve HOAX was the LAST STRAW for me. I’ve been following this scandal since BEFORE it started, and I’m due to implode at any moment. (Not that any of you could give a flying f*ck – it is NOT POSSIBLE for every Twilight Fan to have made it through these scandals unscathed!)

    Twilight obsessions have NEVER been ‘normal’ for so many fans – especially OLDER ones. They are often more intense for ALL ages than they should be… And EVERYONE HAS ALWAYS KNOWN THIS!!

    And YET… NOT ONLY did this senseless ‘cheating’ scandal have to happen to young emotionally-invested girls whose minds are still developing EN MASSE across the PLANET; but it CONTINUES to happen DESPITE the RISING, shocking statistics of suicide rates in the United Stated and the rest of the world.

    Kids AND adults have to deal with all kinds of BS from abusers, bullies and life in general, everyday. And the ONE PLACE we SHOULD be able to ESCAPE treats us all like SH*T – after a YEAR and a HALF, and as MUCH MONEY as we Twihards have poured into the Hollywood BEAST situated around this planet to date.

    Hollywood’s hype jerks INTENTIONALLY RUINED this pretty fairytale for SO MANY Twilight Fans for MONEY; and they make MORE money off of us while they CONTINUE to ABUSE their beloved ‘Freedom of Speech’.

    Stephenie Meyer didn’t MEAN to make us all this crazy, but the TABLOIDS DO, for MONEY! We can ALL SEE why & how Steph thought up her neat little story and it has ALWAYS BEEN FORGIVEABLE – that’s WHY you Twihards got these movies made. WHO MADE THEM A HIT FOR YOU?!

    She filmed three films recently, and has two lined up that are all settled. She seems fine and happy. People need to move on. I’m sure she did get roles, just not very good ones and of course it was backlash from the cheating scandal. But everything moves on, and it’s time to stop linking her and RPattz together too
