Twilight star Kristen Stewart says she has made “a million bad movies” over the years. The 26 year old has just directed her first short film, called Come Swim, which has had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
She said that the poor movies she has made have formed her directing style. She also revealed that she was more controlling as a director than she thought she would be before she embarked on the process.
The A Lister said it was rare for a movie to be really good, before she backtracked slightly, saying she did not mean that she had made bad movies, but they were films that had not come together in a miraculous way.
Her movie is all about heartbreak, which Kristen certainly seems to have experienced enough of. She said that when dealing with a broken heart, you could either wallow in memories or take a step back and reflect on the fun you had as a couple.
Kristen also said she believed that this was an exciting time for women filmmakers. And, she had simple advice for anyone wanting to break into the industry, saying just to do it.
The actress turned director has become as well known for her love life as for the movies she has starred in. She was in a relationship with her Twilight co star Robert Pattinson before she was discovered to be having an affair with her Snow White and the Hunstman director Rupert Sanders.
Since then, she has dated her personal assistant Alicia Cargile. She has also been spotted on romantic dates with singer St Vincent, who was previously dating model Cara Delevingne. However, St Vincent and Cara are understood to be back together. Meanwhile Kristen is now believed to be in a relationship with Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell.
