Kristen Stewart’s Mom Is Stupidly Jealous of Her Famous Daughter
You know how you cried on your mom’s shoulder when your first boyfriend broke up with you? Or how when you had a bad case of cramps, your mom was the one who went to the drugstore and got you some Midol and a bucket of chocolate mint ice cream? Yeah, moms are sweet like that.
Well, we have an inkling Kristen Stewart’s mom Jules Stewart never did those things. She probably told K-Stew to get over her immaturity, move on to the next boy and then threw her a heating pad for her cramps. Okay, maybe not, but one thing’s for sure: she’s far from being the next June Cleaver. In fact, she seems stupidly jealous of her famous daughter.
Jules is making her directorial debut with the film K-11, and besides talking about the movie, she’s decided to throw herself a pity party.
“It’s extremely frustrating for me, because she’s 22 years old and I’m almost 60,” she said to the LA Times. “In terms of life experience — hello! — I have it all over her. It’s not like I came out of nowhere.”
Also, if you’re going to call her “Kristen Stewart’s mom” or “Mama Stew,” she’ll probably slit your throat. Or give you a stern talking-to.
“To the world, I have no name. I am ‘Mama Stew’ — that’s what they call me, all of her zillions of fans. Or I’m Kristen’s mom; I’m famous for being her mom. Most of the female directors that are successful in this business came up through the ranks. And I’m hoping to follow in their footsteps. I have my own career, my own thing going on. And I would hate to think that it’s because of my 22-year-old that I got to direct a movie.”
Funnily enough, she wasn’t bemoaning Kristen’s fame when she wanted her daughter to have a supporting role in the film, which is about the fictional wing of a men’s prison that houses gay and transgender inmates. Kristen wasn’t able to take on the project because of her prior commitment to Snow White and the Huntsman.
The role in K-11 would’ve seen Kristen playing a character who was repeatedly raped. Yeah, that sounds like a regular mother-daughter jaunt in the park.
Also, would anyone be talking about this film if it wasn’t directed by “Mama Stew”? Jules has no problem promoting the film as a director who’s “more than just Kristen’s mom,” except being K-Stew’s mom is the only reason we’re talking about her and her supposedly “trashy” B-movie in the first place.
