Kristen Stewart on First Love: ‘It’s the Most Intense, Overwhelming Feeling’
The Twilight starlet got real about the rush of emotion that came with the first time she fell for someone.
Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult sat down with Entertainment Tonight to talk about their new sci-fi romance Equals, and the conversation quickly turned to the actors’ thoughts on the first time they felt the prick of Cupid’s arrow.
“I read the script and I was just like, ‘This is going to suck and hurt to think about,'” Stewart said. “You just place yourself in that feeling that maybe you’ve had before — it’s the most visceral, intense, overwhelming feeling — so when it’s really great, it’s epically great, and when it’s really bad, it’s epically bad.”
“The first time you fall in love, you are so mental that it’s very difficult to recall anything, isn’t it?” Hoult chimed in.
The film tells the story of two young people who form a bond in a futuristic society in which human emotion has been eradicated. Their newfound love could be a result of an infection, meaning curing the ailment might also remove their love.
“There is something so pure about the elements of intimacy in this one — they’re doing and experiencing things for the very first time with no regard for any predisposed ideas of what that might mean,” Stewart shared. “They are just very animalistic … like babies born into adult bodies. There was nothing embarrassing. It was all kind of, like, beautiful and pure.”
