Kristen's 'tude sparks angry tweets

Kristen Stewart’s performance on the "Today" show this morning isn’t sitting well with “Twilight” fans who wish she would lighten up a little bit off the big screen.

The Twittersphere was all agog this morning after Stewart appeared on the "Today" couch with the entire morning show crew of Matt Lauer, Meredith Viera, Ann Curry and Al Roker, all of whom seemed to be getting a little Twi-crazy themselves.

“Kristen Stewart is just so boring. Looks boring. Acts as if shes bored. Shes plain boring,” Poppins__09 posted on Twitter after the interview.

“Omg. How can Kristen Stewart be an actress when she can't even answer a question in an interview without stuttering and being awkward,” aurenhayes7 also posted.

Stewart’s body language appeared quite unfriendly towards the bright and chipper group as she sat hunched over, her arms crossed against her chest, tapping her foot nervously up and down.

“Ughh kristen stewart cheer up already. you're on the today show,” helenutswoah posted on Twitter.

“Kristen Stewart on 'Today' was a waste of time. I wonder if her on 'Regis & Kelly' is going to be any better. It will have to wait for now,” wrote jesseboijai.

Unfortunately, the reviews of Stewart’s appearance on “Regis & Kelly” a mere hour later didn’t get any better.

“Ok Kristen Stewart on Regis & Kely today....awkward...studders in real life as in the movie...not a good actress...horrible interview!!!!” AmandaBarberio posted.

Granted, Stewart’s character in the “Twilight” series, Bella Swan, is a moody heartbroken teenager, so maybe she is just a very serious Method actress. Stewart also admitted to the "Today" crew that she had a cold and her interview during the 8 a.m. hour was the first of three television appearances in New York City just today.

But still, with a blockbuster movie about to hit screens and a rumored romance with every tween’s dream Robert Pattinson you would think that Kristen could put on the happy face for five minutes of an interview. Isn’t that what acting is all about?

    Its just that she has no range. Every movie I have seen her in she acts exactly the same. Her personality is perfect for Twilight because she is the character in real life, but I don't see her having much of a career outside of the Twi franchise.

    Actually for the one who asked, Kristen has been in a LOT of movies, Iamek it my business to watch them, since im a huge Twilight fan, so i needed to see if she was a good actress she was in: Zathura, THe messengers, panic room, adventureland, secret life of women, catch that kid, and PLENTY more, but of course none of the movies, were even CLOLSE to being as big as the Twilight franchize

    I love Kristen, even with her seemingly 'boring attitude' I don't find her boring, quite the opposite, i find her quite interesting, but i find that she is bored with the whole Twilight crze. That's why Twilight fans hate her. I mean, we may be confusing boredom, with nerves and awkwardness, both of which she seems to constantly have, but imagine the lovers of Twilight (myself included) When someone who is in the middle of this huge craze with obsessed fans, and she sits there likes she wishes she was doing something else, that would make me peeved. I just think we're misunderstanding her body languagge.Well i hope we are, because if she really doesn'y enjoy doing Twilight, then the movies will turn out be viewed bad by the fans, which is why im hopinh its our attitude toward her, is the problem. But then of course, I could be wrong altogether

    Why are people so quick to judge. Speaking of interviews she said she has seen what people have said about her. How would you feel if ou only heard people saying bad things about your dreams. Personitly I think she a great actress and shows great emotion in new moon; way better than twilight. In new moon I can just tell she put everything. People keep in mind she did all the pysical running for the voltri scene and even twisted her ankle. At the MTV movie awards when she dropped her award she came back briantly. I'm glad she can be herself not like any other actors that put up a pretense. I also think it so funny that we judge her first because she isn't th prettiest or she isn't Taylor or rob. Stay true to yourself Kristen

    Kristen was in Panic Room with Jodie Foster years ago, so this is not her first time around the block. And if you watched the Today show, the only thing she sounded remotely excited about was the Joan Jett project. She brightened up and got very talkative. I actually think that she is 19, and a bit of an EMO girl who thinks that this is an "uncool" franchise, and my bet is, she has not read the books. In about 3 years when she has the pick of the films that she wants because of this experience, she will probably look back and realize what a cool experience this is. I also think there may be a little too much of a certain mood altering controlled substance in her life.

    Leave the girl alone! At least she isn't fake. What you see is what you get and if you don't like it, don't watch her. I think she is endearing and fascinating as a real person. But, I could be partial...She does remind me a lot of myself......And I'm sure there are plenty of others out there who could say the same. And why are we so quick to judge anyway? Just because she is in a movie doesn't mean that she is supposed to be held to any higher standards than the rest of us. She is a person, not an object.

    Good lord.

    As someone who is utterly, dehibilatingly shy in candid social situations, but who can completely rock a speech or a little scripted song-and-dance number in front of a lot of people...I get it. She's not uppity, snotty, arrogant, full of herself, annoyed, ungrateful, ad infinitum. She's SHY.

    A lot of people don't get what shyness means, and seem to think it's easy to just 'get over', even resorting to cruel (good-natured?) taunts to get the shy person to open up. Don't do that. Don't attack her with hyper cheer, either, Regis and Kelly.

    She put on a good, subdued performance as Bella~who is, in the series, subdued and matured beyond her peers. So, it's unclear what people were expecting from her in the movie. Perky giggles? Wild hand gestures? A bounce in her step?

    She out-acts Pattinson often, who just can not generate the masculine yet dapper power that Edward has. (The scene in the forest make me sigh...with disappointment. Or when he "scares off" the would-be rapists in Port Angeles...yeeaahhh. He just looked sleepy.) I don't know her range, but Stewart's perfectly cast as Bella.

    She's not arrogant. Now enjoy the movie and think about what's for dinner tomorrow.

    Everyone else in the Twilight Saga seems to be able to at least put on a happy face during interviews and t.v. appearances. Every single actor worked hard on this film and have very demanding schedules. I'm sure they are all tired. Kristen needs to get over herself and start acting like she is somewhat grateful for the fame that she stumbled into. There are PLENTY of other actresses who could have played Bella just as well, if not better. She should feel lucky and stop acting like a snob.

    Kristen Stewart, not to sound too harsh, is trying toooooooooo hard to be the eccentric, deep actress. Honestly, her acting is HORRIBLE and her one track personality comes through in every movie she has ever done. She got lucky to get this role and her inability to become Bella and present a believable performance really ruins the movies for me. It is even hard to go back to the books now because she has ruined what I imagined of Bella and her depth. Robert at least has some potential but needs a costar that brings out his talent.

    Sorry but we all know her screaming in the bed and stuttering seem like an acting class and that person that just doesnt belong there. Pretty bad.

    Hi; No I did not see the interview on the Today show that suppose to have frustrated many fans. personally I cant understand why because i happen to own almost every movie Kristen has ever made,I think Kristen is a beautiful,intelligient,level headed,young lady who knows what she wants.Kristen has been through so much change in almost 2yrs and has a lot of responsibility and burdens placed upon her small shoulders like having to watch everything she saysand so as to be a good role model I think she is doing a damn good job! so if she smokes or does pot she is under tremndous stress more than the average teen.SO cut her some slack and if she should get to read this, always continue to practice humility,generosity and above all gratitude.you are a well loved actress K-stew keep being yourself.

    Here's my issue. All of these people defending her are wrapped up in the "OMG it's BELLA" craze, I'm sure. Ok, yes, you've seen her other movies, but you're a BIG fan cause she's Bella.

    Kristen Stewert is a bland actress. She is the same character in every single movie she's ever been in. She has the personality and vocabulary of a brick wall. Actually, a brick wall might have more pizazz. She's completely socially akward, and I don't care how you try to excuse it, that is no way for ANY adult to function in this world. Yes, she is an adult, unless you're still a minor at 19..Cause if so we need to correct a bunch of other laws. It's time for her to start holding herself like a woman not an insecure teenager. No one makes excuses for me when I have awkward moments, so why should she be defended so vehemently.

    She is a one note actress. Yes, honestly, I feel I could do better, and so could a lot of others. Give the girl some Shakespeare, lets see her do Lady MacBeth. I'm sure she'll find a way to turn every emotion to confusion or angst. Totally, totally awesome confusion and angst, albeit.

    Thats my opinion, and I'm not asking anyone to like it.

    To use the word "retard" in itself shows how ignorant Kristen really is. That word is offensive to the millions of people in the world who have to live with mental or developmental disability as a way of life. She's lucky she's "normal" and can make millions off of the everyday people she so callously calls "retards". That's a disgusting word. Shame on her. Does the girl not have a publicist?

    Actually, she was photographed on the steps of her apartment smoking SOMETHING. She was photographed in a bathing suit with pot leaves on the boobs. You're telling me she doesn't condone drug use? I disrespect her as it is because, in an interview, she complained about "a bunch of retards" following her trying to glimpse filming going on. Um, dear, just lettin you know...those "retards" paid for your house, your car, your clothes and probably your drug habit. Whether you like the fame or not, you signed up for the movie, you get what comes with the territory.

    Here's the thing.. Kristen Stewart RUINED the character Bella. I do not know what Catherine Hardwicke was thinking casting her. I have enjoyed some of her films however, she has ruined the entire Twilight series for me. I am not an actress but, I do read and Kristen Stewart is way too serious and too monotone for that role. I have been told that the Twilight series is supposed to be based on her character? I have read Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse four times each. Breaking Dawn was a joke. Stephenie Meyer is no J.K. Rowling. The Twilight books SHOULD be based on Rob Pattinson's character and all of the torment and suffering he goes through. Meyer created a masterpiece when she created THAT character . Bella Swan is not worthy. She is a young, immature, seventeen year old who doesn't understand the first thing about his life and what he has seen. As for Kristen Stewart as an actress, hopefully with time, she will learn how to behave in public and be thankful for what she has. When I see her in pictures, she reminds me of a very angry, emo girl. Body language speaks volumes. She chose to be an actress so appreciate all of your attention. That attention helps pay the bills in one way or another Ms. Stewart.

    I really think I'm going to stay away from this whole Twilight business. I have not read any of the books or watched the movies. What I have seen in passing shows an actress that looks like she's all about the business and not the elbow-rubbing of acting. And that's fine. She gets paid to act, not gush in talk shows. So what if she doesn't have live-audience know-how. Give the girl a break.

    Why do people dislike her so much? I find her to be a very real girl. I can tell shes pissed off because of all the attention she's getting all of a sudden. I saw pictures of her way before this whole Twilight thing, and she actually looked happy. Robert and Kristen are so use to being low key actors. They could actually go outside, without being eaten up by the paparazzi, or being stalked by fans. I'm happy that she's staying the way she is, because I don't want her to turn into another phony Hollywood actress. And I believe that the only reason people really hate her, is because she is linked to both Robert and Taylor. Before she came into the spotlight, one person couldn't say one bad thing about her, and now look.

    ok....you all just aren't getting it....doing promotional interviews is a part of her contract.....part of being in the movie at all....to help sell the product....she's at work and getting paid very very well for doing these interviews. It's not a "favor" to the studio, the producers, or the fans. And she's not doing it well. Bottom line: if she can't fulfill the entire contract, including promoting the film in a positive manner, she should be fired.....now THAT would be lovely. Unfortunately, it's too late now to fix an atrocious casting decision.

    I am 19, I am a bubbly person. I smile, I talk to people, I don't roll my eyes when people talk to me. And if I were in the spotlight, I would amplify that. Your fans do not want to be your bad side. Ok, she was sick for one day, what is here excuse the other 364 days a year. I do not like Robert Pattinson either, he strikes me the same way as she does. Taylor Lautner is younger than both of them, and he does not act this way. Same as Dakota Fanning. Age is not an excuse for rudeness. I go to the movies because I loved the BOOKS and I support Stephanie Meyers. And I am not a "Team Jacob" fan or whatever, so that is not why I am bragging on him. I am just stating a fact. I am all for individuality in Hollywood, but acting unhappy does not make you an individual. It makes you a killjoy that nobody likes. And her acting really does suck. She plays the same role in every movie. She has never read the Twilight books, and even said that she was not interested in them. So why even bother playing in the movie, especially when you say you act in movies that no one sees. Anyone who has read the books could have told her that this was going into a popular franchise. I really wish she would be recasted. And on an ending note people it is S-T-U-T-T-E-R!

    Acting is completely different from being interviewed. I can comfortably act in front of audience of hundreds of people, but I'll stutter and blush if i try to talk in front of a small group. She's awkward and I love her for it! She went from tiny to HUGE in a matter of weeks, give her a break. She seems like a normal self conscious teen who is trying to cope with this drastic life change while constantly being hunted by paparazzi.

    i wonder if Kristen will be this uninterested when people decide to opt for a bootleg of the movie instead of paying money to go see it. not to say people will watch a bootleg just to spite her – she's not that important in life – but she should act like she's happy to be one of the less than 1% of the world who get to do something as exciting as make a movie for a living and get to be flown all around the world to give interviews. these interviews are not on world politcis or how to solve health care in America. they're questions on the movie and herself. how hard is that? and she's not a kid. she's 19, that's college age. in about 2 years she'd be entering the workforce and wouldn't be getting any free passes with the way she presents herself in public. would you really want a person who acts like her to represent your company?

    no one forced her to accept a role in a movie franchise based on a hugely popular series of novels. if she's used to the smaller indie films with the lack of media attention they get she should've stuck with those. she always acts like she's on drugs, like she's on some kind of mood depressers or downers. with half-open eyes and awkward mannerisms. i don't read the books and only saw Twilight to make my wife happy, but seeing Kristen at awards shows annoys me. at the MTV Movie awards when Twilight won some random award Taylor Lautner was very gracious and outgoing and gave the audience what they wanted. Robert was understated and then you have Kristen with her minimalist "thank you" or whatever 5 words she got out. Really? Less than 5 words? with the crowd in heaven seeing a bunch of actors on the stage you don't think they'd wanna hear something more than "thanks".

    there's nothing special about Kristen's acting abilities. she annoyed me in Panic Room acting the same way. no one acts like that in real life. she's too overly serious for her own good. someone needs to tell her to enjoy it while it lasts and have fun, cuz for every person that makes a long career in showbiz there's a Lindsay Lohan or Britney Spears who crash and burn and spend the rest of their life doing anything to get it all back.

    live it up Kristen, your time will be over before you know it. if doing interviews and getting awards is so excrutiating to you then the next "Kristen Stewart" will be along soon enough and everyone will worry about that It girl and you'll be yesterday's news. 10 years from now everyone who follows Twilight will be 10 years older and will have moved on to something else. happens to the best of us.

    First why would anyone care if she was good at an interview or not. she is an actress. If you like the performance you go see the next movie. Why would anyone care what her personality was and also why would any woman be jealous of her. Its just a made up movie and represents nothing in real life. No role model, no one to look up to.

    Kristen has been in several other movies. She plays the daughter in Panic Room. She is in Adventureland, and silly teenage flick about kids in the 80's. She was in Jumper – just a bit part. My 12 year old daughter is absolutely crazed over the whole Twilight, New Moon thing. She thought Kristen just looked tired from all of the interviews and hype going on lately. Look, she's just a kid and this whole thing is a lot crazier than anyone ever thought it would be. Every female that read the book is jealous of her too, so put the claws away ladies. As far as the drug related pics, do your research. She was photographed while shooting a movie where her character smoked pot. Come on people, she's and actress and this is just a movie.

    Kristen Stewart was the WORST possible choice to play Bella. She's a terrible actress and even worse interviewee. She didn't even read the Twilight books. If she had, then she'd know how terrible her portrayal of Bella is. I agree with previous posts that Bella is awkward, but it's a different kind of awkward than what Kristen is. Anyone who has read the books knows that.

    Furthermore, it doesn't matter how nervous or shy she is. It's her job to promote the movie, and clearly she can't do that very well. Most people get fired for not doing their job well.

    Ang- have you actually READ the books? Bella Swan's entire character is completely awkward and Stephenie Meyer (author) has amplified that characteristic in all 4 books. Just skim through all of them and see how many times you can see the word "awkward." Bella is SUPPOSED to be awkward and shy and afraid of being the center of attention (um helloo....remember all the big parties and dresses Alice gave Bella? She hated them!) Kristen is absolutely perfect for this role...she embodies the character more than any other actress...and she puts herself into the role...yes, the awkward "boring" role because that's what she is supposed to be acting like!

    To whomever responded above:
    First of all, if you read the first sentence of what I wrote, you would know the comments that I made about "awkward" is for ALL THE MOVIES SHE HAS MADE! I'm commenting on her overall acting in ALL MOVIES AND INTERVIEWS. Before you comment, make sure you read the entire message. And again, the comment about "have you read the book"...again, read the entire message before you comment. As I said before, yes, I have read the books. Yes, I know Bella Swan is awkward, but I was making the assessment that Kristen is AWKWARD in everything she does. Hello back at ya!

    "you would think that Kristen could put on the happy face for five minutes of an interview. Isn’t that what acting is all about?"

    False. Acting is about acting. Public image is about stardom and sustaining a fan base. Kristin Stewart is a good actress (I am referring to her pre-Twilight work, which people tend to forget about), and doesn't behave like a celebrity. That's not a bad thing. Get over it.

    Give her a break. I get tired of seeing perky fresh faced stars on tv all the time. Just because someone is an actor or actress does not mean they love to be on TV telling the world about themselves. It seems now days the "entertainment" portions of shows don't really care about what movies or projects someone is involved with, they just want to know who they are dating and what they are wearing. Who gives a crap if she is dating whats'-his-name. I really can't recall (Rob?) is it. I have not seen the movie either but I like her because she seems NOT PERKY

    Awwwwwwwww. Leave the poor girl alone. She seems like a very shy person. She loves acting and isn't bad at it. She just seems to not like the attention from acting, which I totally understand. If I was in her shoes I would be terrified. I saw her on Conan and she did a lovely job. She still stuttered and twitched, which is her way of overcoming those fears. Not everyone enjoys the lime light. And no where is it written that when you become and actor you must enjoy people screaming and throwing themselves at you. Look at Johnny Depp, the World's Sexiest Man. He is VERY shy and he acts very similar in interviews, no one bothers him about it. Even Robert Pattinson looks like a nervous wreck sometimes. I think everyone needs to enjoy the movie and let them be.

Just give her a break and find something worth making a big deal over other than a young girl who just so happens to be shy in front of a crowd! Put yourself in her shoes for a day or two and I'm sure your opinion will change.

    I don’t care what the reasoning is for her “awkwardness” – she has blatantly made rude comments about the franchise, etc, many times in the past. She is just a miserable little girl who has a drug problem and needs to be grateful for what she has. If you don’t want the attention, why choose a career that throws you into the public eye???

    And in regards to her age, I know a lot of younger actor's/actresses who handle the limelight much better. Look at Taylor Laughtner! He is put together and gracious when he is interviewed. This isn't an age thing here – it's an attitude thing. Kristen has one of the worst attitudes I have ever seen. She rolls her eyes during interviews, etc. Come on now.

    Okay, seriously guys...if you really watch all of the movies she has been in, she acts the same. It never changes. Even when she does the 'kissing scenes'....exact same in all her movies. She is awkward, nervous, and fidgets the exact same way in all of her movies and interviews. Its quite disappointing, but we either got to except it or not. I was actually really disappointed after reading the books that they chose her for the role of Bella Swan. I think someone else could have done a much more of an amazing job. I really hope that she can shake herself from those ticks 'cause the rest of the movies need to show her as having some confidence and strength in herself. I'm not sure if she can do it. I'm not trying to bash her but I think a lot of the criticism that is documented here is quite accurate. I think she really has a long way to go in proving herself. As well, I really think that she has not shown the appreciation someone else would show if they were given the gift of being involved in this great movie project. Bums me out.

    Ang- have you actually READ the books? Bella Swan's entire character is completely awkward and Stephenie Meyer (author) has amplified that characteristic in all 4 books. Just skim through all of them and see how many times you can see the word "awkward." Bella is SUPPOSED to be awkward and shy and afraid of being the center of attention (um helloo....remember all the big parties and dresses Alice gave Bella? She hated them!) Kristen is absolutely perfect for this role...she embodies the character more than any other actress...and she puts herself into the role...yes, the awkward "boring" role because that's what she is supposed to be acting like!

    I think Kristen Stewart is a good actress, I've rented most of her movies on Netflix, I wounder how many people here that commented have ever even watched her in anything else other then Twilight. I think she's great. Also, when did Tweets become news? I think picking a few random tweets and making them news is really bad reporting. Even if you look at the 152 comments above and pick out a few bad ones, it wouldn't reflect the other 100 that love her. I think when this movie makes more money in one weekend then anyother movie this year, now that is news. The target audience is teens. These teens use the internet, and follow every movement KStew makes on youtube, these kids are the same kids that have sold out 2000 Midnight showings of Twilight even before it opens. They have broken online ticket sales for fandango, and movietickets.com. Online ticket sales records for Canada, and the UK have been broken. These kids accept KStew for who she is. So give her a break!

Think what you want of her acting but if all you have seen of her films is Twilight, than you have no right to judge her acting. Into the Wild, In the Land of Women, and Adventureland were AMAZING! Leave her alone. She's 19. Her acting list is very impressive. The Twilight Saga is great. Kristen is an awesome actress and it takes a lot of guts to go out in front of all these people and have her life put on a platter in front of the world. I think it's revolting how people want to know every aspect of her life. Let her be.

Kristen is doing her job, and gracefully, I might add. She's new to the stardom and seems to me to be handling herself quite well.

    Acting on a set with a prepared script is one thing. Being interviewed live in front of millions of people is another thing entirely. EVERY interview I've ever seen Kristen do is awkward. It's clear she is uncomfortable in situations where she is the center of attention. Does that mean she has a bad attitude? No! Wanting to be an actress does not mean you have to be a social butterfly and an attention seeking press whore. Some people are good at interviews, others are not. Kristen is one of those who are not. She was not prepared for the craziness that has come about from Twilight. Who can blame her? We can all judge her from the drudgery of our own unexciting lives. 99.9% of us will never know what it's like to be a celebrity and have every angle of our lives put under a microscope and have no privacy.

    For those of you who complain that she is an actress and should therefore know how to put on a fake smile and play happy, I just have one thing to say to you. Are you so materialistic shallow that you'd like her to act like a robot rather than be the human being that she really is? Like her or not, you should admire the fact that she is actually being herself during interviews and not being the person every "kristen stewart critique" wants her to be. ill be the 100th person to say it, she's young and she's tired so cut her some slack. You may think flying around the world doing interviews and promoting movies is some luxurious thing but in reality I'm sure it is highly exhausting and the interviews can begin to seem repetitive. So before you decided to bash kristen stewart for not being "happy" enough, maybe take a second to consider all that she's got going on in her life right now. Just because she's asuccessful actress doesn't mean her life is easy.

    Oh brother, this is ridiculous! In this business, if you're sick you don't have the option of not doing the interviews – you have to do them anyway. I actually thought her interview on the Today Show was much better than others she's given. When they asked the question about whom would win (Martha Stewart vs. Meredith) she was very cute, and gave a funny quip. It's perfectly clear that she's a painfully shy person when it comes to interviews.
    I myself have terrible anxiety about public speaking, even in front of people I know, yet outside of public speaking I'm a very outgoing person. People need to lay off. She's not Meryl Streep for crying out loud, she's just a kid who is pretty good actress, and who landed a great role. And as for the person who claimed that Twilight wasn't a good influence on teens: Clearly you haven't read the books. There are incredibly strong morals in those books, especially about abstinence.

    She is 19 and at 19 should have some social skills. They are not apparent in her interviews or maybe they are not there at all.

It's unfortunate that is the only part she appears to ever play in reality and in the movies. If she doesn't like the attention then she should get out of entertainment altogether.

    i dont think that she was giving any unwelcome or uncomfortable vibes because they say at the beging and the end that she is not feeling well. and she has never been able to answer a question in an interview without studdering over it that is just who she is

    Give the poor girl a BREAK!!!!! I am so the Twilight fan, read all the books, plan to see the movies, but the fan frenzy going on right now everytime they are in public would scare the beejesus out of the most experienced actors!!! I think the fans need to tone it down a bit and give these talented actors some breathing space. Can you imagine having to do 3 interviews in one day with a cold AND a crowd of frenzied fans to walk out to every time you go outside???? I think she is holding up pretty well, all considering........

    This girl is a wonderful actress and has been around for awhile but has admitted that she gets nervous and doesn't like interviews. Unfortunately, because of the Twilight series she has been thrust into the public eye. Although she has chosen to be an actress and the public has such an interest in Hollywood in general, it is not up to us to pass judgment on someone who is uncomfortable.

    Kristen Stewart is a young, accomplished actress. I saw her interview on the Today show & she didn't look uninterested, she looked sick. Flying from around the world, to LA, to Tennessee & then to NYC without a break has got to be exhausting...she's done more than 3 interviews in the past 3 weeks, I think people need to cut her some slack. She's been in quite a few movies & she is a great actress. Sure, the Twilight series can be seen as a cheesy franchise, but as a 19 year old, I think she's smarter & more gifted than other actors her age. If anyone was thrown under such constant scrutiny the way she has been over the past year I think they would have the same attitude she would have. The interviews I've seen of her (including the Today show) she's said she is enjoying the moment, grateful for her job & the fans. Just because she doesn't look like Miley Cyrus or Taylor Swift doing it, doesn't mean she's less grateful for everything. It's always easy to pick on someone else but until you're in her shoes or anyone else's I don't think it's fair to judge people.

    First let me say this I love the twilight book and I am a huge TWIFAN however. I dont like all the cast members. Kristen is a horrible actress all the roles she plays are the same and she sucks at them all. Her interviews are even worse. Then the comments she makes about her fans and not wanting to be bothered. RUDE I think someone else should have been cast that had a personality. Will it stop me from watching the movie and standing in line when the DVD comes out. NO not at all. But she does bite no pun intended...... Glad I missed her interviews

    I love Twilight .....major fan! The thing with Kristen Stewart is that she got into acting knowing what was going to be expected of her. It is a part of the job. Promoting the movie!!! With the huge success of Twilight last year she should have been prepared for an even bigger responsiblity promoting New Moon. People keep saying "Oh well she's only 19!" Well, Taylor Lautner is younger than her and so is Dakota Fanning and they blow her away as far as coming accross as being grateful and happy with their movies or fans.
    I just wish she would act as excited about the movie as all the fans are about it. She is such a buzzkill. Smile KStew!!!

    Please. Give the girl some slack. She's not used to super stardom. When the first movie came out there wasn't nearly the amount of press and anticipation – it was a low budget flick. It wasn't even certain the sequels would be filmed. She's been thrust into this crazy world overnight. Furthermore, she's been back and forth from coast-to-coast for several days and I'm sure hasn't slept at all.

    She's a young girl, obviously nervous, and there's a big difference from a movie set and live TV. I think someone from her PR team should be hiring someone to "groom" her for appearances. If nothing else, she needs to sit up straight and do something with her hands. I don't think most regular people really get how completely nerve-wracking it must be to be interviewed on live tv. I find her awkwardness kind of endearing, but I hope she's more polished by the time the next movie comes out.

    I happen to know many famous people and – believe it or not – MOST of them are internal, shy people who are often mistaken to be rude or "nervous".

    Look at the mania that surrounds these people. They can't go to the grocery store, out to restaurants (unless it's a snooty glitterati joint), they can't go pick up dry cleaning or walk in the park without the fear of being chased down by hoards of fans. This is enough to make ANYONE nervous, especially Twilight, Harry Potter, True Blood, or any other extremely successful franchise actor! Give the lady a break!

    You want to know what happens to stars who are constantly hunted and hounded? Criticized and made fun of? Look at how strange Michael Jackson got, the older he got. Then you MIGHT get a clue.

    Kristin Stewart, I think you're charming and honest. You just keep being yourself. When your critics decide they're done with you because you aren't "ON all the time", your true fans will remain.

    She's probably just unhappy that she will be remembered most for being in the Twilight movies. It's sort of like Harrison Ford being pissed because he didn't want to be typecast eternally as Han Solo or Indiana Jones. Only difference is those movies are actually worth watching.

    Look at all the people who have commented on this story. Obviously the girl is going to be a little shy and awkward when she knows so milions of people are judging her every move. Anyone who knows anything about body language would say hers (crossed arms, stuttering, not making good eye contact) are all the signs of being uncomfortable. . if you watch interviews with her with her costars she seems a little bit more relaxed, but overall she may just be a very insecure person. I would give the girl a break, we expect celebreties to be these perfect people in every aspect. Stop hating.

    but I would also like to say that if I was dating Rob Pattinson I would be a little bit more cheery :)

    The true test isn't how she does on vapid chat shows. It's when - and if (BIG if) –she gets other roles that either demonstrate her range and talent or lack thereof.

    I think she's just painfully shy and self-conscious, and maybe a little angry at all the attention given to her every word, plus the negativity she's dealing with anyway due to the "Robsten" mania. Can't be easy to have every little female tween in the world hating your guts (Miskel, the drug thing, ridiculous! She doesn't look like she's on drugs), just because you're playing the love interest of the James Dean/Beatles of the decade, Robert Pattinson, who is said to be even more tormented about the attention than she is, but is somewhat able to laugh it off in that British, public school Hugh Grant kind of way. The girl is 19. Does she have a bit of a moody, dark attitude? Yes. That's probably why they cast her immediately, then spent an interminable amount of time looking for who could play Edward. She really is Bella. Brilliant casting.

They've permitted this young person to go out to the sharks of the media world, totally unprepared. She shoots from the hip, because that's all that she knows how to do. It appears that it's only recently that she grasped any concept of the novels she's portraying on screen. Does she understand the moral high ground the author is taking? Again, where on earth are her coaches and managers? Kristen is another victim of the blatant greed in which we find our country. Obviously, no one involved in the production of this huge film undertaking wants to spend any money or time adequately preparing the actors involved, particularly the most needy as well as talented actress, Kristen.

    Why the American public thinks all actors should think, act, smile, and laugh the same is beyond me. If the acting was horrible in the series it would not be a blockbuster. Fact is that people won't go and see something five or six times if it sucks. So, I'd say Kristen Stewart is pretty successful at what she does by assisting in this movie that helps people escape from reality for awhile. I'd like to see anyone complaining try and do a better job. Put up or shut up already. Let this poor kid enjoy the moment in her own way!

I know nowadays it seems like it's one and the same, with most stars out there happy to be just as famous for their personal lives as for their roles. But, really – as long as she keeps turning in good performances (and I thought she was excellent in "Adventureland"), she can give lousy interviews and that's fine with me.

    For all those who are squealing "But she's *just* 19! We have to make allowances!" I say buh-looney! You know who else was 'just 19' when she broke into movies? Lauren Bacall. And she did it against a much older, more experienced leading man- Humphrey Bogart. Mind you, this was still the days of the big studios, but do you think for a moment that she would EVER have give interviews like Kristen has consistently put out, you'd be wrong. She's have been back on the bus and back to working as a theater usher. Maybe Kristin needs to do that for awhile. She certainly doesn't have the hunger that it takes to make it in the real world. And she certainly doesn't have Bacall's class.

    ARE YOU PEOPLE SERIOUS?
    I get that the being an actor you are on the spotlight and people are going to judge you no matter what you do. But what the actors from Twilight are going through is just beyond absurd. And to read here that CNN readers (assuming grown-ups with a bit of brain) judge Kristen Stewart like this is just plain sad. They have been on a press tour for the past two weeks with hardly a few hours off. Can you imagine answering the same questions non-stop for weeks? There comes a point where you are just exhausted. They are human beings.

    Her awkwardness just shows that she hasn't let this all get to her and is keeping true to herself. I give her HUGE props for that. I really hope she can isolate herself from "news" like this and not let it get to her. To the people here that can't seem to understand it: you should seriously evaluate the people you admire and why. As someone mentioned before Britney, Paris and Lindsay give great interviews and they are a shame to society. I wish we had 10 Kristens for each other starlet out there.

    I think she is a major let down as Bella. I am VERY disappointed with her attitude towards the books and movies, she always acts above them- i could get past the bad acting if she was a supporter of Twilight and could at least pretend to be thrilled having the role, but since she can't do either, i really really really am devestated she is in the role. As a professional actress she needs to realise that her role promoting the film and her actual image is very important if she doesnt like getting bad press.

She's one of the rares actors that picks a role regardless of how much money she can squeeze out of it. Which has made me a fan of hers for quite a long time before the Twilight craze. Besides, movie stars are just people too, not any more spectactular than any of us, so I wish people wouldn't live their lives as if they were.

    I know that most of you people who are defending Kristen Stewart are Twilight fans and if the situation was probably reverse, like someone from Harry Potter had this situation instead, NONE of you would be defending that person from HP. I mean, sure, HP fans would of course defend that person but I'm not even sure if Twilight fans would defend too. I love Harry Potter and I'm not OBSESSED with twilight. it's ok, i love the movie/s but i just dislike the books. i think that kristen is perfect for the job of bella because they both have the same personality and i know that kristen stewart had been shown in big screens for a long time now. she was in zathura, and even adventureland with ryan reynolds and now she's in twilight and she's always in interviews so i dont see why she's "camera shy".

    personally, i think she's just not that open to others, you know. i mean, look at it, Rob Pattinson goes on TONS of interviews and he makes jokes and stuff but when kristen stewart is an interview its like dull. but when kristen is being interviewed with other people like rob or some other twilight cast, she's kind of quiet and mostly leaves all the talking to the other people unless she's the one being asked a question or something.

    i'm not saying i hate kristen but i just wish she felt a little more confident and comfortable. i know you think that she might be conceited if she became more confident but there are some celebrities out there who are very open to their fans and interviews and such and are still very kind.

    anyway, i think she did an OK job in the today show and regis & kelly but i agree with the comments people made on twitter.

    again, i'm NOT hating on her anything :)

    I think that since she IS an actress; she should know by now how to act pleasant during an interview. I've heard of actresses being sick, hurt, depressed, or whatever doing whole movies without a hitch. Yet she can't even smile and answer questions for a few minutes.

    It's not about her "not being a typical Hollywood blond chick" either. I'm all for individuality. It's more about her acting like she's too good to grant her fans a moment of her time. And the fact that she ALWAYS seems to have no personality.

    And, by the way, it's not just this interview that she's been so boring and stuck-up during. There are plenty, go look it up. And I don't believe she can be sick for all of them, now can she? Actually, I'd like to see a interview (or movie) where she's actually happy or something other than vapid.

    If you don't like what you're watching, CHANGE THE CHANNEL! Don't sit and watch the whole thing and then complain about it on friggin Twitter of all places.

    I get it, Kristen is not everyone's cup o' tea but I strongly believe that she doesn't give a shiz either way. So don't get all bent outta shape over how someone acts when they're clearly not feeling very well as it is. Cut her some slack.

    Being an actor and being a media personality are separate skill sets. Those who like her work on the screen should let well enough alone and not expect her to be effervescent in interviews. Some actors disappear into their characters in ways that allow them the safety and space to be extremely extroverted and charismatic. At the end of the day, out of character, they can be quite shy in public settings. Stewart obviously doesn't feel confident or purposeful in the spotlight without a character or a script. She's not alone.

    I haven't seen these interviews, but I don't really like Kristen because of ungrateful comments she made in the past (yet didn't stop her taking $12 million to do New Moon). In saying that, I've seen two sets of interviews that she did in the UK and she was alert, honest and actually cracking a joke or two – so I think maybe she was just having a bad day.

You only included negative tweets about her appearance from the two morning shows. i don't know how you got all the angry tweets but those people probably has not followed Kristen Stewart. There are tons of positive tweets about her appearances that you never mentioned in your article In the future, please make it a balance article and make sure you do your research. She's the most popular young actress right now and you obviously want to use her to get hits for your blog. That's pathetic and really unprofessional.

    Wow! I am shocked to read this! For one thing, I thought Kristen did great on all of her interviews today, and over the past couple weeks. She is probably completely exhausted, and she was coughing and sniffling so she's probably sick as well. Some of these comments are classic "armchair quarterback." Plus, I have to go there–methinks a lot of the hate spewed Kristen's way comes from a touch of jealousy. Kristen is gorgeous, brilliant, talented, and gets to kiss and cuddle Rob Pattinson.

    I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion. & my opinion is that if you do NOT like Kristen Stewart, you can honestly just stop reading articles pertaining to her. But I bet that if she were to exit a car with no underwear on & flashing her lady parts you all (referring to the abhorring) would gladly be on Team Kristen Stewart.. The sad thing is that most that detest Kristen have no actual reason. Is it because of her rumored relationship with Robert Pattinson? Probably. I say Kristen is no cookie cutter & will not fall for what everyone else wants. It's her against the world.

    I love that these is an actual article about this. How about all the people talking about how amazing Kristen is?

    Yes, she tends to appear awkward and uncomfortable during interviews. I find it endearing because I know if I were in that position, I would feel the same way. It's great that some people can do interviews and be completely at ease and "charming" but that's not everyone. Kristen is different and I love that.

    I can't believe anyone who has a clue what they are talking about would call Kristen ungrateful. While she may not appreciate being stalked by the paparazzi (imagine that!) she is always very gracious and polite to her fans. Over the past week, she (along with Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner) have literally been all over the world and I cannot recall one negative account from a fan. On the contrary, they can't get over how sweet and kind she was.

    I believe she probably had a late night last night – not because she was partying, but because she flew out from LA to Knoxville for a charity event (where, again, fans were impressed with how nice she was) and then on to NYC. That is exhausting. Add to that the fact that she's clearly sick and not your perky and bubbly pop princess (of which I am eternally grateful) and she wasn't bouncing around on the set of the Today show.

    Furthermore, can any of the blame for this "boring" interview be placed on the shoulders of the interviewers? I mean, they seemed so busy arguing about the pie contest, they almost forgot about their guest.

    Kristen's not like Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears. I like her BECAUSE of that, not despite that. I don't have a daughter, but if I did, I'd rather she be a strong, intelligent, independent woman like Kristen is shaping up to be (as she is only 19, and already far more mature than some of the people who have commented here) than someone like Britney Spears.

    And before anyone complains that this is her job... she is going to the interviews. She's on time, she's dressed appropriately, she is polite and sober and frankly doing the best she can. I believe someone already said it – Kristen is an actress, she is not a celebrity. If it bothers you all that much... don't watch her interviews. She won't care, I assure you.

    1. She didn't feel well
    2. She is an actress and in almost every interview she seems a bit uncomfortable which provides me with more respect towards her because I see it like she is a nervous actress who just wants to please the fans.
    3. Just because she is an actress doesn't mean she has to be comfortable with interviews.
    4. She is 19.

    I enjoy her work, from what I observe in her interviews I liker her unique (very good thing) perspective, and her "down to earth" attitude. I think she is doing a great job and does not deserve all the harsh comments. Just my personal opinion.

    First of all, she was sick with a cold. Amazing how you people bash a girl who is 19 and wait ...wait, actually acts and dresses like her age. In a time where we have Miley Cyrus (16yrs old btw) dancing on a stripper pole on national TV and Hollywood Starlets walking around half naked. Kristen is a breath of fresh air. She's awkward for sure but that's part of her charm. She doesn't like to dress up but she can WORK it when needed. She doesn't have to be made up head to toe just to leave her house. She doesn't care what people write about her. She doesn't care what Twitter peeps say or anybody else for that matter. I for one am glad she does her job with humility and doesn't buy in to the Hollywood crap. Trust me Kristen will be around long after the bimbos of the Hills or CW. If you want to see class act look at Kristen Stewart. Know and remember the name, she's gonna be around for a long time.

Even if she doesn't like the press she should at least TRY and appear grateful for the opportunity that she's been given.

    This is nothing new... the reason Kristen was CHOSEN for Bella's role is because of the similarity between them. Of course, it is slightly annoying when we want to get the scoop and for her to be a little joyful at the fact that her bank account is overflowing, thanks to the fans. So yeah, she's perfect for the role of Bella... but is she everything we want out of our Hollywood starlet? Absolutely not. I can live with that. Robert and Taylor make up for her dullness.

The thing that makes her so fascinating (along with her co-star Robert Pattinson) is the mere fact that they are down to earth and are everyday, real people. They are not like any other actor/actress out there today. They love what they do, and are obviously very good at it too. She is awkward, but who isn't? That's what I love most about her.

    Ok, Kristen Stewart has had me fired up since she was cast as Bella. She has been around for a long time, and I have seen several of her movies and the girl CAN NOT ACT! She never even read the Twilight books, and she is nothing like Bella in the book. Bella was awkward, but Kristen overkills it. She always acts like she is bored and would rather be somewhere else, and she is not even pretty enough to be Bella. She has been acting for years, and if she can not handle an interview by now, she needs to just hang it up. Anyone else would have made a beter Bella. It isn't exactly the hardest role in the world, which makes it even more sad that she play her. I do wish that they would leave her alone, because she isn't worth the time in the spotlight.

    I think she does a fine job as an actress, since she's on film and she doesn't have to interact with live people – that seems to be her issue – put her in front of an audience and she freezes – hopefully as she gets older, she'll work past it.

    Regarding tamstarr's and lily's comments: KS is definitely insecure, but experience will not cure it. Did you ever see Dakota Fanning in an interview? Even as a 12 year-old, she had enough poise to handle herself. There is a long list of young stars who could manage to give interviews, even after their first movie. Kristen knows that she is going to be interviewed; she knows there are publicity tours , red carpets and personal appearances to be made. These things are all part of an actor's job. She should first admit that she is flustered and insecure without a script, and then work hard to prepare herself. It could be that she might never achieve brilliant wit or natural charm, but at the least, how hard is it to train yourself not to cross your arms over your chest? How difficult would it be to smile as though you just might like your audience, and hold your body still?

    The "tweettards" should leave Kristen Stewart alone. Promoting a film is a tough job with all the traveling, appearances and what not. I'm sure she (or her co-stars) hasn't gotten a decent night's sleep in a while. That and she may not be that comfortable speaking without a script. As far as the woman who's 12 year old daughter thinks Kristen is on drugs, get a life kid and don't be so judgemental. I'd doubt Kristen Stewart could do all the excellent acting work she has done if she was on something. What they saw was most likely a combination of fatigue, jet lag, sleep deprivation and nerves. I saw an interview with her and she seemed fine. A little tired, but fine.

Maybe these 12 year olds could use a little lesson in not making judgements without having all of the facts. I think that is just weird. Kristen doesn't come across to me as spoled, bored or too good for everyone else. I think she seems shy and awkward, but honest and cares about what she does and appreciates the fans. That's how I see it. And I have seen her other movies and she's a very good actress.

    I just think she has been with the twilight franchise so long that she adapted the personality of boring Bella. I hated Twilight as a vampire movie but because the actors had looks, people adore it, unfortunately that's all it takes. It should have been dubbed as a romance, not a vampire movie [which the book and movie were only dubbed as vampire fiction to bring attention to it, otherwise nobody would care].

    With that being said, it has nothing to do with Kristen personally. I haven't seen any of her other interviews but apparently she's like that in most of them. I don't think she's a bad person though and maybe she just doesn't do well interviews, many actors have that problem.

    In regards to what someone else said about Robbert, you're absolutely right. I actually have that article that mentioned how Robbert actually isn't that impressed with Twilight but it contracted so is only doing it because he has to. I don't know if hate is the right word but I wouldn't say he loves the twilight franchise either.

    Ah, there's always a critic. So people are whining that she's not following along with the typical Hollywood act of being a robot that says and acts fake just to put on a show and please everyone? Maybe, just maybe she actually enjoys the process of making movies, and not the celebrity side. Amazing concept to grasp, I know. People need to keep in mind that she, along with other cast members, have been thrown into this ridiculous, whirlwind experience.

    She actually shows humor in a lot of her interviews, it's just usually in the form of sarcasm. If people don't pick up on it, their loss. I've been a fan since '02, and I enjoy her interviews more than the majority of other celebrity interviews.

    People, I've met her and worked with her – she is the most arrogant, boring, "entitled" young person I have ever met. Most of us in the "industry" are waiting for her to fall flat on her face...she's so unappreciative she doesn't deserve the praise she's getting...

    I think she is not comfortable in the spotlight, perhaps a bit introverted. Her "job" is to act and sell the character she is portraying. There are plenty of other actors and actresses out there who are the same way. Not everyone is personable and boisterious. She is human, we need to remember that.

    As a mother of a 19 and 20 year old, I am not surprised with Kristen's low comfort level at interviews. I picture my kids in this situation and can imagine how hard it would be for them. I've been very impressed with all of her performances including Twilight. She did a great job portraying Bella despite the uneven writing and directing. She really was "Bella."

    I believe that critics of Kristen, particularly young girls, project themselves as Bella as they read the book. Kristen replaced their ideal "Bella" and I don't think any actress could have fit this ideal.

    I wish Kristen all the best. She is a very talented and smart actress and I'm sure she will go far. I also wouldn't be surprised that as she matures, she becomes more polished and self assured in interviews.

    i will tell you exactly what her deal is. she is high. she's a pot smoker, its a fact and how she behaves and how boring and dull her acting is is proof enough. to each his own ,but i really wish they had cast someone else, someone who has talent and a passion for that career, not someone who whines about it constantly and puts about as much effort in her acting as she does to blink an eye lid. She's a very beautiful girl, but to me that less than half the battle, personality, motivation, and ability means much more. none the less for her sake I hope she learns that very soon so she doesnt loose this opportunity of a lifetime and fade away behind the emerging talent that actually appriciates thier work and give a dang. cold or not.

    Did anyone ever think that she might be a very shy person? Just because someone is an actress/actor doesn't mean they're not shy. I read some where that years ago an actress that played on "Cybil" had panic attacks before she went on the set. There are some people who love the craft of acting and enjoy the pay but are not into the whole interviewing, press junket thing. Of course because the series is so popular she will have to adjust but it will likely take some time. If you like her in the movies then really thats all that matters. She plays Bella well outside of that give her a break.

    Okay I do think Kristen is great to play Bella but as a person, she does tend to act as if she is "too good" or not interested in being interviewed. I realize that her age does indeed play a factor but when you're in the movie industry, it is a professional atmosphere and if you don't want to gain the stigma of being rude or unappreciative, she needs to lighten up a bit. Actors and actresses need to understand that if it wasn't for the fans, their careers would be crap. WE are the ones who see their movies and express our gratitude for their work. At least Rob and Taylor show how apprecitive they are of the fans even though they're hounded by them all the time.

    Please, give Kristin a break. It is easy for some of you to ridicule a 'young girl' who might be awkward in front of the lights of a live audience. Beside there are many people who are not morning people. Some people's minds don't get unwound until 12 noon. She maybe one of them. Besides, she has been up late at all these premiers and events and she may not be getting a lot of rest. Cut her some slack. Besides, she has admitted that she is an 'actress' and her real life is not reflective of what we see on screen. The more she is exposed to public offerings I am sure she will get more relaxed. No one likes to be under the constant scrutiny of questions, camera's, lights, and comments.

    She doesn't "have" to do anything. Just because everyone is freaking out over this movie doesn't mean she has to match the enthusiasm in her interviews. This is her job, this is what she does. How many of you walk into the office or school every morning perfectly chipper, well put together and eager to please everyone? She probably gets sick to death of answering the same questions over and over again. She probably gets sick of living in hotel rooms, she probably gets sick of being asked about her relationship status, she probably gets sick of all the screaming 13 year old girls and the paparazzi! I know I would!

    The fact that this writer uses 'Tweets' as the major form of source material for this article is laughable. Twitter's main purpose is to allow people an outlet to rant and rave about the things they hate! And they all hate Kirsten Stewart no matter what she does because she is living their dream and not doing it the way she 'should' (what ever that means).

    Kirsten is an actress, not a soldier in the media mine field. She's, what, 19, years old? She has been thrust into the spotlight over the past 18 months and maybe it isn't all it's cracked up to be. How would we know what it's like?

    Sure, we can all sit here and say "well if it was me, I would be so happy, I would love to star along side Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, I would love to be on TV and do interviews and have my picture on the cover of magazines." Well what happens when you want to take a break? What happens when you feel sick and you still have to trek all over NYC from interview to interview where they ask you the same questions? We're all just people, doing the best we can day to day! She shouldn't be attacked because she is doing things in her own way. She's just like the rest of us, more so than any celebrity I've been exposed to in the past 5 years.

    The media puts way, way, way too much pressure on girls like Kirsten. It's not fair. Just let her do her thing in her own way and be happy that she's found success (though maybe not the type of success she wants).

    I'm not a Twilight fan, i've seen it, its was ok i guess, the cinematography was pretty good! But I never read the books so I don't have the deep emotional investment in it like a lot of other people. However, I really feel and fear for Kirsten Stewart, I hope she sticks to her guns and doesn't cave to the masses because they only want to see her destroyed.

    As most of the T'ween Twitter Twilight fans would say: OMG- LIKE GIV ME A BRK! I have worked the last 16 years as a professional actor, both stage, film & TV. This means Kristen was 3 when I started. There is something that is well known and practiced amongst those of us who have studied the arts and participate in them with respect: Shut up, Thank Your Lucky Stars, and Leave Your Baggage At Home. The Shut Up Part: There is NO reason for you to have an attitude with ANYONE other than yourself. The Thank Your Lucky Stars Part: You're lucky. Someone else could be making your money. If you really don't like it, don't sign the next contract and let someone else take your role. The Leave Your Baggage: You've got nothing to complain about. I've done press junkets, and done the interviews- have even had to do shows 8 days a week, 2 hours a shot (Broadway does this)- but none of my colleagues have complained, especially when you're shuttled with first class flights, limousines, all three meals paid for, and an assistant at your disposal to do all other things for you. The bottom line here: Let's not come to the rescue of a spoiled brat who is willing to take your money and not show you any gratitude for it.

    Here's the irony of it all: Robert actually says more offensive things about fans and the franchise and SM than Kristen ever has. He calls the fans obsessive and crazy, that he doesn't really get the appeal of the books, that he thinks SM's first novel makes her sound crazy. And yet, Robert has that smile and hair to fall back on. So, when he's saying these things, all the twihards, are like, "he's so funny! he's so cute!"

    But Kristen is a girl, and she's got a mullet growing out. And she doesn't smile as much. So, she gets judged harshly. It's sad really, seeing the double standard here between Robert and Kristen. Robert gets away with murder, Kristen isn't even given an inch.

    Come on! Kristen Stewart was on Jimmy Kimmel months ago and I was shocked at how self-absorbed and almost hostile she was toward him. He struggled to get responses from her. She acted as though she didn't want to be there. He is always inventive and enthusiastic with his guests and he makes it easy for them but after a few minutes he appeared to be ready to give up. It was a tough, almost one-sided "interview" and I never understood why she even bothered to show up. She acted as though she was doing him a big favor. She acted like a spoiled brat.
    Then I rented the Twilight movie and this girl CANNOT ACT!!!!!!!!!! The guy wasn't much better. Both of them, especially she, are the type of "actors" on most of the TV shows nowadays. They speak in monotones, no animation in expression or body. There is no spark in them. They are just reading lines, and badly.

    I have to say after reading twilight and then seeing the movie with Kristen Stewart playing Bella I was very disappointed. I thought Kristen made Bella out to be extremely boring. I actually was hoping they would recast the character Bella for New Moon. When I found out she was re-cast I just couldn't believe it. It has nothing to do with Kristen Stewart as a person, I just didn't think she fit that part at all. To me her as Bella is very monotone and no emotion. Sorry all of you Kristen Stewart fans....She just doesn't fit that part.

    People need to realise that they don't own someone just because they were in a high profile film.

    Bring back the day of Hollywood glamour, where actors and actresses had a bit of mystery and weren't expected to do 8,000 TV shows, interviews, wear a specific perfume and disclose every single detail about their grooming routines.

    It is just too much. Kristen (in the vein of actresses of old) seems to want to be an actress and that is it. And what exactly is wrong with that? Why does the job of actress have to come hand in hand with being some publicity ambassador?

    I would cheer the day when all of these interviews stopped.

    And to those people who believe that the interviews etc are actually an inseparable part of the job of being an actor – don't you ever have a bad day at work?

    I know I have many days where I just don't feel like getting out of bed or talking to people at work. I try, but I am not always 'chipper' and cheerful every single day. Why? Because I am a human being. And so is Kristen and every other 'celebrity' out there.

    This belief that celebrities are somehow 'above' being human is completely unhealthy. ALL of us are human, no matter how much we earn, what we do for a living, or what our lives are like.

    Kristen is just young and clearly not comfortable in her situation. It's one thing to be in front of a film crew, completely different from a live broadcast. People just need to get off her back. She has been an actress for a long time and is quite good (although this series is not a favorite of mine). She's quite lovely in person. Many young actresses/actors cannot handle the kind of pressure that is placed on them when they become uber popular (i.e Lohan, any of the original brat pack, heck even James Dean). She will come into her own eventually. I notice the same kind of attention is not being paid to Robert Pattinson.

I loved the Twilight books and was so disappointed when they cast her as Bella. In every role she plays, she has the same monotone voice. If she's going to be a teen celebrity, she needs to spice it up a bit or she'll just be forgotten as soon as these Twilight movies are complete.

    She's been given an opportunity that thousands of struggling actresses would kill for. She's starring in a hugely successful film series with two of the hottest young actors working today, and her career is virtually set. But mostly, she chose to be an actress knowing full well what such a job entails. Sorry if I can't muster up any tears of sympathy for the girl. She needs to get either an attitude adjustment or some serious training in how to comport herself in public because she comes off as a very unpleasant, spoiled girl. At the very least, she could "act" like she's having some fun and enjoys her job. Her interview in EW, when she wasn't put on the spot in front of a camera, is just as off-putting. When there are easily a dozen other young actresses who manage to handle the media gracefully, she has no excuse.

    Hi,
    someone up there asked if Kristen had ever been in any other movie besides these and the Joan Jett movie and yes she has! She was Jodie Foster's daughter in the movie Panic Room and if you've ever seen it you saw a remarkable performance from a very young Kristen. She was excellent in Panic Room and the role called for intense emotional urgency and reaction to a severe medical episode. She's very talented and just maybe live stuff isn't her "thing", but I've seen a lot of very big name actors flub live interviews and people who should be much more rehearsed at what is expected from them be awkward and even confrontational to interviewers, so I agree with what was said before, let's cut the girl a break.

    Give the girl a break b/c she's not a "professional" interviewee? Sorry, but the interviews are part of the job. Acting in movies involves selling the product, which means going on the interview rounds, answering the same set of questions over and over again. Is it monotonous and annoying for the interviewee? Yes! But the marketing is what drives the salaries of the actors and drives ticket sales. She is employed to be a "professional" interviewee. She's been doing this since she was 11 where she appeared in a big budget pic – Panic Room with Jodie Foster. Other actors in the movie have far less experience and deal with the same level of scrutiny and can handle the interviews fine (i.e. Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson). She also continues to be passive aggressive towards her fans, sometimes being grateful, and often openly resentful of them. In sum, not cool.

    Why are people so surprised that this girl does not have a personality? She is a dweeb, a dork. That is why she acts so that she can be other than herself. She is always commenting on how it is so easy for her to act like she is in the caliber of Dakota Fanning or faye Dunaway. She does not know how to talk let alone conduct an interview. This is nothing new. Look at all her past films. She never looks at the interviewers or her fans in the eyes. She is always twitching like she would rather be somewhere else. She does not even know how to walk the red carpet. Her acting is mediocre – method acting ..puhleeze. We are talking about a book that the author selled out on. Stephenie Meyers "borrowed" from many other vampire authors who are far more talented writers. At least with this interpretation of New Moon, the new director has real action. Kristen and Robert look like two guys making out. When they casted Bella, they didn't want someone too pretty. Well, they got it. I think the rest of the cast acts better than that couple. And they certainly know how to conduct a proper interview. Someone needs to dress this girl, teach her how to talk and pose for the cameras.

Where is her agent in all of this, he/she should be kicking her overpaid a– and helping the poor little sick girl to understand the millions she is making from this movie requires her to behave like in interested and engaging person at all times when she is promoting the movie or making a public apperarence.... If the morning show rounds are not exciting and impressive enough to make her giggle with joy then she is brain dead. She is living every actors dream… What director would ever want such a nervous, brooding, spoiled brat in a future movie, kill off the character and watch her career go down the tubes. She has a cold, so what, the country has an economic hangover, yet they are paying good money to this nervous, bored woman whom really should not get one more minute or dollar of the public’s attention.

    Perhaps she is not comfortable with being stalked at every turn by a bunch of creepy adolescent and adolescent acting fans who would probably rip clothes and hair off of her to have a souvenir if given the opportunity. America's celebrity culture is sick and Kristen's uncomfortable behavior is more a symptom of what is wrong with her fans as opposed to with her. Just because she is in a couple of movies does not mean she should have to sacrifice every bit of her privacy on the outside world. Hey stalkers: put down your cameras and try picking up a book and leave the girl alone.

    I'm a fan of the Twilight series and Kirsten, and to be honest I dont think shes making enough of an effort. Yeah sure shes under an enormus amount of pressure but to be in her position is a previlege and it's her responsibility, not to mention the contract shes under, to do all sorts of promotion for the film. As a fan Im just kind of disappointed, not that shes awkward or cant give a decent interview but she doesnt even appear to be trying.

    Lots of great actors (and Kristen is good but not great) can't put together 2 coherent words or thoughts without a script. Lots of great actors are great because they do not have great personalities but are able to don the character on the scripted page and disappear into it.

    I've seen many interviews with Kristen and she acts the same way in every one. Just the same as her character in Twilight. The only interview she actually seemed to be a person in and not an actress was the comic con interview with Taylor, Robert and another actor (I can't remember who it was). That is the first time I was impressed by her. I was not impressed with her skills in Twilight so you can imagine my disappointment when she carried the character over to her interviews. I highly doubt she had an attitude this morning on the Today Show. It seems to be just her. So get over it.

    If they had listened to the interview, the first things that was said was that Kristen Stewart was not feeling well so people should give her a little bit of a break. If they had been jetting all over the place to proote the movie and make appearances, they may not be feeling too hot either.

    It's amazing how people can bash a girl who they think is a great actress. They loved her in the movies, yet when she's herself they decide they can't stand her because she isn't well spoken and the person they imagined her to be. She's a PERSON, who has real thoughts, feelings and nerves. There are many brilliant actors that aren't socialites. They are known for their work because they can get into a character and really live the character while they are filming. It takes a lot of energy to be able to do that AND do these tours. So before you judge her, try to imagine yourself in her shoes.

    Char – Kristen Stewart has been in over 25 films....acting with the likes of Olympia Dukakis, Dennis Quaid, Sean Penn, Jodie Foster, and Robert DeNiro. It's a pretty extensive resume for a 19 year old.

    I didn't find anything wrong with her interview this morning on Today. They said she was tired and sick. She's just completed two and a half weeks of promotion skipping from city to city with only one day off. She did interviews yesterday, flew to Knoxville last night for a charity opening, and then had to be on Today at 8am today. She's been open, personable, and chatty in all her interviews. Today she is exhausted and sick. Cut her some slack! So she wasn't bubbly, big damn deal. And she was great on Regis & Kelly. The problem with R&K is they have a hard time allowing you to answer a question. They will ask another before you finish answering the first. As a viewer, it's annoying.

    Twilight is not the first film she has been in. By now as a public figure you have to be confident and secure in being seen as a figure. She is almost painful to watch in interviews. If its that uncomfortable maybe a job that require public speaking isnt her deal.

    She said she had a cold, she's probably jet lagged as well and has acknowledged more than once that she's not really that great at giving interviews. Maybe she just needs an interview coach? Besides, she's still young – she has a long way to go. And as mentioned in other comments there are many actors/actresses out there who are horrible at interivews and talk show appearances.

We should all keep in mind that she is only 19 years old...barely an adult. She has a lot to learn...just like the rest of us did at that age. Considering the overnight stardom that has fallen upon her, and the fact that she is obviously uncomfortable with it, I think she's doing a good job with the press. If you pay attention to her interviews, she often thanks the fans and she really wants to make the Twilight movies a good experience for them. Let's give her a break...

Plus if those haters would've paid attention – the Today show hosts acknowledged that she was sick, but still showed up.

    I cannot BELIEVE this ridiculous hatred against Kristen Stewart is still happening, are you haters jealous or something? Firstly she is 19 years old, she seems shy and I have to say her interviews this time around is a mile difference from what she did during promoting Twilight. She is still herself but comes across as more mature, comfortable yet still got that adorable shyness about her. She also was not feeling good at the Today show, she is probably worn down and exhausted after the blitz worldwind tour of promoting New Moon in South America, Europe and now US.

    I know for sure I am not at my peak performance at work when I do not feel good, I am professional at what I do for a living too but I am also human so why do ppl diss actors when they show they are infact only HUMANS not robots?

    Cut the poor girl some slack, she does her best, she works hard and so what if she kinda feels awkward with all the insanity? She deals with it better now than she did during Twilight promo. Enjoy her success? I bet she would if she had the TIME to do so and I think she does in her own way.

    This is just another Twilight nonissue I watched the movie and then read the first book. The book is definately better than the movie and I believe over all people will recognize the books as being better than any movie piece that could be produced on them. Robert Patterson and Kristen I am sure do drugs once in awhile but I don't think that should take away from their abilities to act or give a quality interview. They are hollywood and its part of the job to perform and give a fake smile and gush about the movie they are in. Once the movie series is done I will be interested to see their acting abilities in other films. Both are somewhat new star actors and I want to see if they have the chops on a movie that doesn't have the following of Twilight.

You would think she could act enough to "act" happy during an interview. Unfortunately, her acting really doesn't vary either from movie to movie so it's not surprising that her "real" demeanor doesn't change either.

    To one of the comments above, Kristen is that young girl in Panic Room with Jodie Foster.

    HOLY COW! She's a human: Watch OUT! She clearly wants to be appreciated for her acting, and not condemned for her lack of social grace. How the hell would you act if you were in her place!?!? Wouldn't you stutter after jet-setting around the world and meeting every journalist on the face of this planet, hounding you to answer questions with poise and a big freaking smile everytime? GIVE ME A BREAK, AND HER TOO!

    I bet her life is just one big black-hole of despair, and mistreatment. WHATEVER! I've seen her handle several interviews this same way- you can't pass it off as shy- you're an actress, which by definition means "attention seeker"- so, enjoy it. She's the star of one of the biggest film franchises of the last 10 years- it's time she starts playing to her fans- even during interviews. I'm not a fan of the franchise, but I'm less a fan of over-indulged actresses acting as though a common interview is above them.

    berribrand- It's been a Heck of alot more than 3 interviews. She's been everywhere including various countries doing PR for this movie. Why do ya think she's sick. Cut her some slack and quit with the hating on her.

    Geez, people. Cut the kid some slack. I'd be tongue tied, exhausted and frustrated as all hell if half the globe was watching everything I did, critiquing every word I uttered and speculating on every aspect of my life while fighting the flu. On top of that, half of them hate her for who she gets to PRETEND to be in THEIR fantasy world. Talk about projecting!

    She's under a hostile microscope (entire cast is) and people keep sticking in pins in them all. Much as I enjoy the books and the effort they've put forth, my heart truly does break for the price they're all paying for this at such a fragile time in their lives. Wouldn't you just like to scream at all the fans and media "JUST LEAVE ME ALONE AND GO WATCH THE MOVIE, PEOPLE!!!" if you were them? I would!

    It may well be a professional dream come true, but it's certainly got to be a personal nightmare for those folks.

    She was on Conan a couple of nights ago and had the same body language. I think that's just how she is. She said her dad watches her interviews, critiques her for not finishing sentences, and only shows the ones he likes to his friends.

    She was also in Adventureland and played the same gloomy character. So, she definitely seems to be genuine and doesn't turn on some fake charm for the cameras. Is she on drugs – maybe, but she definitely doesn't seem comfortable with her stardom yet.

    I am so happy to see that most of the comments are positive. She's a teenager, I've seen adult actors & actresses give far worse interviews.

    *Miskel, did you bother to offer an adult opinion or observation to your daughter. Even further, she's 12 she'll forgive Kristin tomorrow.

    I'm sorry, am I the only one that thinks this isn't news? Or that this level of obsession with how an actress appears during an interview is unhealthy? Kristen doesn't have an image problem, the rest of us have a problem with our priorities. If she's on drugs, I wouldn't blame her. The level of deification celebrities receive in our country is ridiculous.

    Not news, not important. The girl's a talented actress and may or may not have interesting things to say in an interview. Let her live her life and move on. We should be talking about how we're going to fix the economy, health care, immigration, education, or foreign relations with any number of countries, not subjecting this girl to undue criticism.

    What the girl needs is a handler. Maybe selling the Twilight Saga isn't going to be hard but most of the other movies she does in her career will require her to appear pleased with the product and really pander to the consumer. She is clearly not capable of doing either of those things. It's obvious she needs someone to run through potential interviews: what she should make sure to say, small talk, interesting/humorous anecdotes she can speak candidly about. This isn't rocket science. Almost every other actor does it.

    She's a bore. She acts likes she's a huge movie star and she has a long wa to go. They would have been smart to recast Bella.

    My goodness, three interviews! You must be famished - utterly exhausted! You obviously lead such a hard and difficult life. And having to do actual work when you are feeling a bit under the weather? Wow, she is such a soldier. Let's all pity her for the extremely difficult life she leads....

    I think people are being extremely judgmental about someone they don't know. As for this morning's today show interview, Kristen was exhausted and sick from her press tour. Matt Lauer specifically thanked her for doing the interview when she did not feel well. She is an amazingly talented actress and I respect the fact that she doesn't care what the mass public thinks of her. It takes a lot of courage to be who you are even when people don't like that. Everyone needs to lighten up themselves and realize she is a human being.

    Kristen is awesome. Her interviews on talk shows are always a bit awkward for her but she's getting better. She was really cute on Conan the other night and i wished Regis and Kelly would have shut up long enough to let her talk. It seemed like the were trying to make it easier for her but they wouldn't let her finish her thought. The today show was weird. Why were they all there interviewing her. Why not a one on one and not real cool to put her on the spot like that about apple pie.
    Love ya Kstew!

    My 12 year old daughter won't watch the Twilight series because she and all her friends have decided Kristen is on drugs and they don't like people who are on drugs. I mean, who knows if Kristen is on drugs or not, but the fact is that if a bunch of tweens THINK she is because of the way she always looks, talks and acts, then she has a serious image problem.

    Kristen is an actress not a movie star. She been fine on the press tour for New moon in fact many journalists remarked at how much better she's done this year over last year. She had four people interviewing her on the today show and two on Regis that's a bit daunting in itself. I thought she did just fine. Talk shows are not easy when you don't want to give the staged boring answers to every stupid questions. I love that about her. She's honest and a breath of fresh air over the normal hollywood starlets. Leave her alone.

    Stop trying to stir things up. Kristen has been getting rave reviews for her part in promoting New moon this time around. She's been nothing but professional and has handled the probing questions about her love life with class. I saw her this morning on both shows and thought she did fine . Who cares about a few angry tweets from Rob fangirls who will never like her because of who she's dating.

    I just watched the Today Show clip after reading everyone's angry comments. It wasn't bad. She's just a little shy.

    Kristen herself admitted that she's not used to being in movies that people actually watch - since she's usually in indie movies. She's also stated numerous times in the past that she's not comfortable doing press interviews and junkets and she's certainly not the first actor/actress to feel that way. Some people are much more comfortable losing themselves in a character and taking on that persona than they are doing actual interviews.

    besides some movie( not release yet?) about joan jett, has she been in ANYTHING besides the twilight franchise?
    im sure i wouldnt want to be chipper if i had a cold...and maybe she had some kind of ( i dont want to say stage fright?) but being in front of a live audience im sure would be more intimidating ( for me anyhow) than being in a movie, where of course, you dont have that live audience feedback...

    I have been watching her interviews for about a year and she acts the same in every one. I'm going to give her the benifit of the doubt and say maybe she is nervouse in front of a live audience. I watched the New Moon red carpet on line and she crossed her arms and may have studdard a little but she still sounded grateful for the expirience.

    I'm so sick of people bashing Kristen. The poor girl has got to be exhausted and as she said sick. She 's been going nonstop all month doing promotion flying around the world and was in TN just last night and had to fly to NY afterwards to do early morning chat shows. Cut the girl a break already. She's done a great job in most of her interviews forgive her an off morning when she's not feeling well and is dead beat tired.

    I think she's just insecure and hasn't been a 'star' long enough to know how to deal with the extraordinary world she's been thrown into. As an actress she has a script she learns, knows everyone's place, and what's expected of her. On a live show, no script, nerves take over and she's scared. Give her a break. Soon enough she'll be a pro at these interviews and we will only see the 'persona' and not the person.
