The film tells the story of two friends, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, as they rise from rebellious Southern California kids to rock stars of the now legendary group that paved the way for future generations of girl bands. Joan and Cherie fall under the Svengali-like influence of rock impresario Kim Fowley, who turns the group into an outrageous success and a family of misfits.

Joan Jett recently caught up with MTV to dish just how alike she and Kristen were. She shared, “I found us to be really, scarily similar, just in our physicality, the way we move through space. The thing that came through to me was that it was important to her to capture it. She really wanted to nail it [the role].”
The Runaways hits theaters on Friday, March 19.
