The filmmakers really got it right with Kristen and Rob. There’s been such an overlap of how iconic the characters are, but also how iconic Kristen and Rob are. When [they got] together, it became bigger than anyone could have imagined. It was sweet to watch them together on set! I was surprised at how down to earth they were. Kristen’s just so intelligent… I wouldn’t be surprised to see, as she gets older, her transitioning into her own films because she has such a strong voice on set.
“When I’m about to blow the candles on my birthday cake and everybody is telling me I must make a wish, I just go into a tailspin. I’m thinking: “what do I wish?” and I just can’t seem to think about anything. Then I close my eyes, take a deep breath.. and there comes my wish. I don’t know how to explain what goes on inside of me, but that’s what happens: breathing is the key to understand what’s really important to me.”
I’ve defended her in public as regularly as I can. I think it’s absurd that they’re not giving her a break. I think that she’s holding her own, that she’s courageous, that she’s inventive, and that she’s got character oozing out of her, and I say, “Give her a break. Who is she to pander to your idea of what she’s supposed to be?” She has every right in the world to express herself exactly as she chooses to, and she’s got a lot of surprises up her sleeve. Why won’t they give that woman a break?
