Kristen Stewart Talks Still Alice On Today Show: “I Found Aspects Of Myself” In New Part (VIDEO)
Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart appeared on Monday’s “Today Show” to discuss their powerful new film Still Alice, in which Moore plays a woman coping with early onset Alzheimer’s Disease. Watch the video below.
Moore is winning raves for her performance, and there’s already buzz that Still Alice could earn her a fifth Oscar nomination. In the movie, Stewart portrays her estranged daughter-turned-caretaker.
“I think I found aspects of myself within this part that I hadn’t had a reason to discover,” explains Stewart. “I can stand in something so grotesquely horrendous, and actually see the good in something, and try and see the light, and I didn’t know that I had that.”
Moore says of the younger actress, “I was delighted when I heard she was going to do this movie. I mean, really, really thrilled, because I’ve always loved her work so much, and I love her personally.” Stewart reciprocates the praise: “I’ve worked with a lot of extraordinary, talented people. She’s an incredibly impressive presence to be around.”
Asked about the movie’s message, Stewart says it’s simple: “Be positive, and live in the now.” Check out the video below, and tell us what you think.
