Kristen Stewart “Felt Close To Death” While Filming New Movie ‘Personal Shopper’
Kristen Stewart reveals in a new interview that she never “felt closer to death on a movie” as she did while making the upcoming drama Personal Shopper, a ghost story set in the fashion underworld of Paris.
The actress spoke with Vanity Fair about her upcoming film, which comes from the same director as Clouds of Sils Maria, for which Stewart has won several Best Supporting Actress awards. As Gossip Cop reported, the actress received France’s prestigious César Award, and one from the National Society of Film Critics, among others.
Stewart describes Personal Shopper as a “thoughtful, really meditative ghost story.” And due to a role that required the actress to work “16-hour days, six days a week, running my [expletive]ing ass around Paris,” she admits, “I genuinely felt closer to death on a movie than I’ve ever felt.”
Stewart also talks about her reaction to seeing a new wave of young actresses starring in blockbuster franchises, not unlike Twilight. “It’s weird having done this overtly successful franchise-type thing, and then have a bunch of young girls hop on similar vehicles,” notes Stewart.
As far as trying her hand at directing, Stewart reveals, “Oh yeah, I’m gunning. I really want that now.” The actress is confident in her ability to helm a film, expressing, “I think that I’d be pretty good at getting people on the same plane and on the sort of train.” She adds, “Yeah. I can’t [expletive]ing wait.”
