Hollywood rumors just heard that a lot of KRISTEN STEWART‘s detractors are puzzled over why she’s such hot property when they say she can’t act worth a damn.
That is to say, why are studios falling all over themselves to get K-Stew to star in their movies when she doesn’t even remotely approach the acting chops of more talented celebrities like Shia LaBeouf, say….or Nina Dobrev and Jesse Eisenberg, or even seasoned and well-established Oscar winners like Charlize Theron or Kate Hudson?
The answer here is simple: it isn’t really about talent. It’s all about popularity.
The same industry that’s abetted the likes of Kim Kardashian and her family, keeping them in the spotlight despite the marked lack of real talent, is the same industry that’s keeping Kristen Stewart buried in scripts and movie offers.
A lot of people do agree that K-Stew doesn’t have what it takes to deliver an Oscar-worthy performance.
“The worst casting news since Jessica Alba was picked to be Sue Storm,”
the Tampa Bay Times mourned about Kristen being cast as Snow White in “Snow White and The Huntsman,” underlining what it perceived to be
“Kristen‘s terrible, terrible lack of acting ability.”
Director Jake Scott, who directed “Welcome to The Rileys,” which Kristen had a starring role in, referred to her as:
“Wily, kind of twitchy…directing her is kind of like wrangling a herd of cats.”
Still, Kristen Stewart consistently tops the IMDB Starmeter, and her presence in the movie is also why “Breaking Dawn: Part I” had an opening weekend of $138 million.
She brings in the money. Plain and simple. Cold hard cash due in part to her popularity, which, if you think about it, is the same concept the Kardashian Klan is operating on.
Because like the Kardashians, thousands upon thousands…if not millions of people want to see Kristen, meet her, read about her life…even be her.
“She posts her highest attribute scores in the Influence and Trend-Setter categories, in which she ranks 177th and 130th out of over 2,900 celebrities,”
a source from DBI reveals. In case you didn’t know, DBI stands for Davie-Brown Index, which is a brand index that quantifies consumer perceptions of celebrities.
“The success of her previous roles in the “Twilight” franchise proves that she is a bankable actor, and, regardless of anyone’s criticism that she is not skilled in the trade, her roles have made her influential in today’s world as seen by her DBI scores.”
And that….is that.
