Kristen Stewart talks Joan Jett in Interview Magazine

KStewartFans has scans of the October Interview Magazine HERE.

Here is just one of the quotes that talk about Joan–check out the magazine for more:

HOPPER: … What’s Runaways about?
STEWART: It’s the story of the forming of Joan Jett’s band The Runaways. I play Joan Jett. I came off of New Moon, and I had two weeks before I was going to start The Runaways, which was insane because we actually play the music in the film. We prerecorded the songs. Dakota sings, and I sing on a few, and there are long performances in the film. But we needed time to know how to be these people. If I didn’t get Joan Jett right, I’d be put on a cross. And maybe I didn’t get her right. [laughs]

I am getting anxious waiting for this movie! Part of me is dying to know what songs they chose to include, but I don’t want to know until I see it. There are certain songs that I think are must-haves. If I discover that they left one of them out, I’ll be disappointed before I even see the film, and that would suck. So I’m going to keep my thoughts on that to myself until after the movie comes out.

And personally, I am more worried about how they will portray Sandy West’s drumming than whether or not Kristen can swagger like Joan. Getting that wrong would be an epic fail. You can lip sync vocals and do wide shots to fake the guitar, but you can’t fake good drumming. At least I don’t think you can. I’ve never made a movie and I can’t play any instruments, so what do I know.

But I’m trying not to worry about anything too much because Joan was there the whole time and I’m sure they all thought of all that.

The anticipation is killing me! Mostly in a good way, though.

Video: Kristen Stewart’s Interview Magazine photo shoot

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video of Kristen Stewart’s photo shoot for the October issue of Interview Magazine:


I’ve always wondered what goes through a celebrity’s mind when they have to sit through these artsy photo shoots. The pictures turn out gorgeous most of the time, but some of the poses the photographers ask for are ridiculous. Heck, I felt like an idiot getting my senior yearbook pictures taken, and all that guy asked me to do was hold my chin up with my knuckles while smiling off into the distance. (Seriously, who sits like that?) I can’t imagine what I would I have done if he had told me to suffocate myself with cellophane. (Seriously, WTF?)

Well, regardless, Kristen is beautiful, and I think she is a badass for cutting her Bella hair to play Joan. (Thanks, Kristen!) I hope Dennis Hopper asked her about The Runaways movie. I checked the stores the other day, but the September issue is still on the shelves, so we’ll have to wait a bit to find out.

Here’s a random bit of trivia: Bella Swan and Joan Jett are both brown-eyed Virgos. I hope Kristen wore brown contacts to play Joan as she did with Bella, although it is a shame to cover up her beautiful green eyes.
