Kristen Stewart Raves About 'The Runaways'

Kristen Stewart Raves About 'The Runaways'

Kristen Stewart will not only be starring alongside Dakota Fanning in New Moon, but they’ll also star in The Runaways together.

The 18-year-old Twilight leading lady sat down with MTV and dished about Dakota, Joan Jett and The Runaways. Check it:

On starring with Dakota Fanning in two flicks: “I can’t wait to actually work with her. We aren’t BFFs yet, but hopefully. I’m so excited that she took the part in The Runaways.”

On telling Joan Jett’s story in The Runaways: “It’s one of the most immense responsibilities to play a real person. If it is not done right, it should be publicly acknowledged. Her story is important. It is an incredibly triumphant feminist story, really. She is an incredibly distinct personality, and so many people love and admire her, and so many people know her as just being one of the coolest people ever to live — and that, in itself, has been one of the most intimidating things that I have ever had to confront.”

On being friends with Joan Jett: “That band, the Runaways, is what started her entire life. She is very happy that it’s being told. … She is the first woman to ever start her own record label, and she’s just a good person. She’s got ambition, she’s got conviction, and she’s just cool.”
