Actress Kristen Stewart was the biggest star of the recent “Charlie’s Angels” which bombed fairly spectacularly when it opened last month with critics mixed and the box-office just not there.
The film’s stars engaged in a long but not particularly well-supported publicity campaign for the film now long over, but Stewart has been back out doing interviews for her acclaimed turn in true story tale “Seberg” which opens in limited release on Friday.
Speaking with The Playlist, she was asked about the film’s poor performance and the actress was accepting and understanding of the way things went down:
“Well, to be honest with you, I think if I had made a movie that wasn’t good and one that I wasn’t proud of and a lot of people saw it, I would be devastated. Luckily I’m not feeling gutted because I really am proud of the movie.
And I think that the kind of the climate that we’re living in right now is polarizing and it’s weird and it’s kind of hard to promote a movie like that. And I think trying to have a really complicated, overly politicized feminist conversation in a five minute TV interview about ‘Charlie’s Angels’….I’m like, ‘Dude, we just wanted to have a good time.’
I’m bummed that we probably won’t make another one, but at the same time I’m really proud of the movie and I’m so happy that it exists and can live in the world. Because I think for a lot of people it’s still kind of important even in a very non-serious way.”
Stewart is set to remain a regular feature on screens for the near future and will be seen again early next year in the action thriller “Underwater”.
