Kristen Stewart Wants to Sing in Joan Jett Flick
Rejoice; Kristen Stewart wants to use her voice for something other than annoying Twilight fans!
The gal who plays Bella Swan sat down with Parade Magazine to discuss her upcoming role in The Runaways, in which she’ll play rocker Joan Jett (and which may feature New Moon co-star Dakota Fanning as Runaways vocalist Cherie Currie).
“Right now I’m just listening to Joan’s music all the time. I spent New Year’s with her,” Stewart reveals. “She’s so cool, one of the nicest, most soulful women I’ve ever met. And so many people love and admire her. It’s an immense responsibility to play a real person, one of the most intimidating things that I’ve ever had to confront. Her story is an incredibly triumphant, feminist story.”
Even more exciting, Stewart hopes to actually sing Jett’s songs in the movie, which will begin filming in the eight-week break between New Moon and Eclipse shoots. That is, if the producers give her the go-ahead.
“I don’t want to speak out of place,” Stewart notes. “I really hope to be able to actually perform the music, but I just don’t know yet.”
Maybe Stewart should consult her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson for pointers. Not only does the guy know how to bring it hard on karaoke night, but the club gigs he’s performed under his Spunk Ransom alias are the stuff of legend.
