Kristen Stewart is preparing to take on a role she’s never taken before: host of ‘Saturday Night Life.’ New reports indicate that the Hollywood actress will be making her hosting debut on SNL on February 4. Kristen is hosting the show to help promote her new film, ‘Personal Shopper.’ Alessa Cara will serve as the musical guest that week.
Yet, a lot of critics are surprised to hear that Kristen will be hosting the show. Many even say that SNL is making a huge mistake. A lot have commented with ‘Why Kristen? She never shows any emotion,’ along with, “This will be the most boring, one note episode in SNL history.”
Sure, Kristen Stewart is a household name thanks to her role as Bella Swan in the ‘Twilight’ franchise but she hasn’t had much luck with comedy over the years. She made the comedy ‘American Ultra’ with Jesse Eisenberg back in 2015 but it tanked in theaters. That’s why fans can’t help but wonder if Kristen will be able to show off her comedic side on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Will she be able to make audiences laugh? Is Kristen willing to poke fun of herself on the show? That’s what fans want to know.
Yet, many of Kristen’s fans are surprised that she’s even agreed to host SNL. After all, she’s ostensibly being trying to shed her Hollywood reputation for months now. She recently made her directorial debut at the Sundance Film Festival with her short film, ‘Come Swim.’ She even published a paper on Artificial Intelligence.
Some even believe that Kristen might quit acting altogether for a career in experimental filmmaking instead. She doesn’t want to be remembered for her role in ‘Twilight’ forever. Insiders say that Kristen is looking to prove to her critics that she’s more than just a pretty face. Of course, fans are just going to have to wait and see what she does next.
So far Kristen herself has not made any comments about her SNL gig. Still, many are worried that she might end up getting panned by critics.
