Question of the Shocked Mind

Check out this post on PerezHilton.com regarding Kristin being chosen to play Joan Jett in an upcoming movie. Do you think she can pull it off???

I shouldn't leave the first comment because I am so biased, but...

I find Kristin's acting abilities to be laughable. Unless Ms. Jett is really boring and quiet and awkard in her own skin (which is seriously doubtful seeing what she made of her life)... I think it will be hilarous!

WOWZA.

Huh. I guess, in all fairness, I should see some of the other stuff KS has done, b/c I've seen zero. Besides Twilight. And I DID see an interview recently (don't have time to go back and find it now) that had her saying something to the affect of how Bella is such a relatable character that she just played herself for the most part. So I guess I've never seen her really act?

Soooo...maybe she could pull it off if she does have the acting chops? Maybe not. I dunno.

alison said...

Yeah. I saw speak, and she was about hte same. Maybe she was just playing herself in that one too? I also saw that In the Land of Women movie or whatever its called, but I wasn't exactly sober...

I think Jes, Kari and Ryah saw one of her movies over the weekend. What did you think, ladies?

I saw an interview that Kristin did for the movie Twilight & she was asked about any upcoming projects she was working on & she mentioned something about an incredible role she tried out for & how she hoped she got it. She said she wasn't able to say any more about it since it was still in the works. I wonder if it was this one??? She sounded VERY, VERY excited about it. I'm curious to see her in another leading role. To give it something to compare to. I just remember her from Panic Room with Jodie Foster. Did anyone else see that years ago??

alison said...

Ginger, I saw that but it was a looong time ago... all I remember was that I wasn't sure if she was a boy or a girl for quite some time...

Ginger said...

HAHA! oh man that's too funny. She just acted scared the whole time and I think she was diabetic in the movie? so she was passing out a lot. She must have been like 13!

I think Kristin sings doesn't she?? I thought I saw a little clip of it somewhere. Not sure if she can sing like Joan Jett though! But then again.. who thought Reese Witherspoon could sing like June Carter??

i don't know. she might have just been playing the roll of Bella (when she seemed so uncomfortable in her own skin), or is she always like that? i wouldn't know, considering Twilight was the first movie i've ever seen her in.

gtg call someone so i can arange to do our (grimm, r & i) project tonight, otherwise i would say more. :-(

Ryah said...

We saw The Messengers. To be fair, it was a bad movie to begin with, but KS played the character exactly the same as she played Bella,so...

I think she feels uncomfortable most of the time. The only really good review of her acting has been in Into The Wild.

I don't see her as Joan Jett.

alison said...

maybe I'll have to watch into the wild sometime. I feel like i heard it was good. ?

Ginger said...

I had no clue she was even in that movie. I heard it was good too.
