Kristen Stewart stars in a Karl Lagerfeld-directed short film about legendary fashion designer Coco Chanel. The pair filmed the mini-movie over two days at French filmmaker Luc Besson’s studio in Paris last month. The untitled film will premiere on December 1 at Chanel’s Metiers d’Arts show in Rome.
Stewart, who’s the face of Chanel and is often seated in the front row at the fashion house’s runway shows, plays an actress impersonating Coco Chanel. The short film also stars Geraldine Chaplin, who’s played the late designer in several other films directed by Lagerfeld. Women’s Wear Daily describes the project as a “fictional behind-the-scenes look at a yet-to-be-made biopic” about Coco Chanel.
Stewart has yet to comment on her new short film, but Lagerfeld told WWD the actress played the role perfectly by portraying Coco Chanel “really, really mean” and “complaining about everything.” Lagerfeld has been making mini-movies for Chanel’s Metiers d’Arts shows since 2008. Other celebrities who have starred in past films, include Pharrell Williams and Cara Delevingne, Gisele Bundchen, Nicole Kidman, and Keira Knightley.
I have add over 40+ photo from the American Ultra Premiere in Los Angeles to the gallery.
Kristen Stewart took a road trip with Nylon for a videotaped interview called “Carversations,” during which she talked about American Ultra, played a word game, and discussed how she recently learned how to play guitar. Watch the video below!
Kristen Stewart talked about music, movies, and pets on Monday’s “Live With Kelly And Michael.” Watch below!
The appearance was actually pre-taped last week with Jane Lynch sitting in for Kelly Ripa, and timed to this Friday’s release of American Ultra. As such, the bulk of the interview was about working on the film, in which she plays the girlfriend of Jesse Eisenberg’s stoner sleeper agent. But first, Stewart came out rocking to Neon Trees’ “Everybody Talks.”
Lynch was impressed when Stewart shared her guitar playing skills, leading her to quip, “I have ADD, it’s why I’m an actor.” She and Lynch went on to bond over living in Los Angeles and being obsessed with their respective dogs. “I just feel like they’re my children,” said Stewart, admitting she even has a “favorite.”
Michael Strahan turned the conversation over to Stewart’s career, and her casting in Woody Allen’s next movie. The actress, confessing she’s not supposed to talk about the project, revealed a little bit how she scored her part. “I hadn’t been that exceptionally nervous in a long time,” said Stewart, noting the bizarre ways she and other stars are often just given roles without ever actually auditioning.
Self-deprecating as always, Stewart continued, “It feels good to prove yourself, because it’s weird when people just hand you roles and you’re like, ‘You’ve never even met me, you may hate me!’” As for American Ultra, the movie star reiterated that she and Eisenberg are “weirdos,” but clarified they’re not “insane crazy actors.” Stewart also shared an amusing story about boarding a flight with bloody makeup from the shoot still on her face. Check out the full interview below!

The 25-year-old English actor recently gushed about his Equals co-star Kristen Stewart at a Jaguar event during the 2015 SXSW Festival.
“I don’t want to give away too much about the film. But [Kristen’s] a real artist and someone who’s incredibly talented and great at like you know, improvising and taking lines and developing them and just working the story out. I can’t talk highly enough of her,” Nicholas shared to Entertainment Tonight.
EXCLUSIVE: Woody Allen has begun casting his 2015 feature film, and he has set Jesse Eisenberg, Bruce Willis and Kristen Stewart to lead the ensemble, I’m told. No comment from the Allen camp. As usual, the film is untitled and there are no plot details, and it’s being produced by Letty Arsonson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, his usual collaborators. Allen might be the one director who, when he courts talent, doesn’t really show them a script. Everybody wants to work with him and they consider themselves lucky to be asked and if they’re available, they say yes almost always.
Kristen Stewart won Best Supporting Actress at France’s prestigious Cesar Awards on Friday, becoming the first American actress ever to take home honors from the French equivalent of the Oscars. Stewart triumphed for her performance in Clouds of Sils Maria, in which she plays the assistant to an actress portrayed by Juliette Binoche.
Her victory marks a huge milestone. As Gossip Cop reported in January, Stewart was the first American actress to even get a nomination in 30 years, scoring the first nod since Julia Migenes for 1984’s Carmen. Adrien Brody was the last American actor to be nominated and win, for 2002’s The Pianist. Stewart’s win on Friday prompted Julianne Moore, her co-star in another critically acclaimed recent film, Still Alice, to tweet, “YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Stewart began her acceptance speech by speaking some French before shifting to English. She effusively thanked Binoche, as well as the director, Olivier Assayas. Stewart was so overwhelmed by the moment, she couldn’t even hold the trophy, asking the presenter to place it on the podium instead
