Kristen Stewart Thinks She's Too Good for Makeup Ads

Eye Roll 21

kristen stewart on cover of german glamourBefore she was getting ripped left and right for being a "trampire," Kristen Stewart definitely had her fair share of haters. I don't really blame people for being a bit turned off by the fact that the Twilight star actually seems to DESPISE being a star. Besides the fact that she scowls at cameras all the time, just about every interview she gives exhibits contempt for what one Lady Gaga once termed The Fame.

Take the most recent example. In Glamour Germany, Kristen discussed her career, which included ripping the idea of ever lending her face and name to a makeup campaign ...

She says:

I would never work with people who aren’t really creative and aren’t committed to what they do. Unfortunately, there are a lot of those people out there, they are f***ing everywhere, and they try to suck the soul out of you. For example, I would never do a makeup campaign, even though the [final] photos with me would probably look good. Thank you, but it doesn’t interest me.

Fair enough if it doesn't "interest" her. There's no reason she should feel obligated to do something that she's not into. But to act as though it's "soul-sucking" work and basically insinuate that the people involved in those campaigns "aren't really creative and aren't committed to what they do"? Puhhhleeez!

Shilling for a lipstick, mascara, hair product, or face wash is absolutely legitimate work for an actress. Most of us don't look down on someone like Andie MacDowell, Sarah Jessica Parker, or Beyonce for doing it. We just figure it's par for the course. And, when you think about it, selling makeup's not exactly any different from selling a magazine by appearing on its cover or selling a major film franchise. And wait, how about perfume? Apparently, makeup's out, but she's cool with being the face of Balenciaga's Florabotanica fragrance ... Riddle me how that double-standard works?

Never mind that, though. Once Breaking Dawn: Part 2 comes out, she'll be stickin' to indie flicks thankyouverymuch. More power to her, but she shouldn't be surprised if she hits some walls along the way. After all, I'm sure some people in the biz are already fed up with her persistent need to bite the hand that feeds her.

Do you get where KStew is coming from or are you totally rolling your eyes at her hypocritical remark?

I think the fact that she doesn't want to do a makeup campaign has nothing to do with the fact that she thinks people involved in makeup are uncreative, because makeup is just about the most creative thing out there, I think what she meant was that makeup campaigns are often super photoshopped, the reason why a lot of them are banned in the UK. For example: Julia Roberts does NOT look that young in real life, but in the Lancome ads, they've basically photoshopped thirty years off of her.

She's a profane hollywood twit who deserves Rudepert, not Rob.  There's not much life to suck out there and I'd probably spit it out anyway, I do that with poison.

I'm actually rolling my eyes at you. It is obvious that you don't like her, so this whole article is completely biased.

GOD, Maressa Brown is such a DUMB CUNT to come up with troll-baiting trash. Look at HER bio: “Um......oh, I a lot! LOL” Stupid, born again, back door virgin.

I think people need to quit look ing for a reason to talk crap about this young lady.  And yes I very much think Sarah Jessica Parker is FAKE, she tries too hard to be in her 20's instead of her 40's where she belongs.  Atleast Kristan doesn't act like her life is all peaches and cream just because she's rich and famous and she stands up for what she believes in even if she doesn't say it in a nice way.

blank stareIf she hates being in the spotlight so much then why does she do it? After all no one ever forced her hand. It was her own choice so she shouldn't be complaining! She has a pretty sweet life and yet she still finds all the negative in it! I'm a pessimist too but sometimes you gotta learn to see the good in things....

Donna Lightle

My eyes roll at this stupid subject of discussion.  Just another thing to make Kristen look bad and others pretend that they are better than she is.

Who cares? Period. Really, people are out of work, starving, on food stamps, without health-care and so on, and so on! Why does ANYONE care WHAT she won't do for money?! And really, why do I care enough to either read this article OR comment? I apparently have no life either.
