Kristen Stewart Has Awkward 'Words' With Jimmy Fallon (VIDEO)

kristen stewart, jimmy fallonJimmy Fallon is king when it comes to getting celebrities to play silly games and act super goofy -- but the late night host had a bit of his challenge on his hands when it came to convincing the notoriously serious Kristen Stewart to lighten up for a round of "Word Blurt."


The game has a simple enough premise: Both players turn over a card with a word on it, then write down the first thing that comes to mind. It's supposed to be the kind of thing you do without thinking about -- sort of an improv type of thing -- and that's where Stewart ran into trouble. 

"I’m not very good at the whole improv joke thing, so to even just say a word is going to be hard," she warned Fallon, looking incredibly nervous. 

And, true to her warning, Stewart seemed incapable of "blurting" anything -- "prolonged stammering" is more her style, apparently. Plus, the words she came up with were either completely obvious ("stick" as a response to "selfie") or totally bizarre ("belly" as a response to "marshmallow").

"It's just like, state the obvious," said Stewart in defense of her "belly" answer, at which point Fallon self-consciously patted his mid-section. (Seriously, whaaa? Still not following her line of reasoning on that one, but whatever.) 

Considering that the whole point of the endeavor was for Stewart and Fallon to come up with similar answers (which would prove they were destined to be "besties"), you could say the game was something of a failure -- but the final word blurt saved both their reps. Check it out:

Hmmm, think Fallon's ever gonna ask Stewart to play a game like this one again? Maybe next time they should stick to talking about the weather.
