Kristen Stewart responds to audiences leaving theaters during the premiere of horror film ‘Crime of the Future’ in Cannes
Kristen Stewart doesn’t care too much for people who can’t digest her latest project. The actress, who stars in David Cronenberg’s thriller Future Crimes, didn’t seem upset as some viewers left the film’s press screening immediately. Instead, people walked out of the theater during the macabre scenes in the movie. The tape tells about an artist who grows unnecessary internal organs, and he removes them in front of the audience, arranging terrible performances. Discussing the film in a press conference the next day, Stewart, who plays an investigative surgeon working for the National Organ Registry, said:
“Everybody loves to talk about how hard Cronenberg’s films are to watch, and it’s funny to talk about people walking out of screenings at Cannes . Every awkward moment in his movies makes me gasp. You want to get close to it, and it never bores me. I feel this is due to lust for organs, and that’s the only reason we’re alive,” the actress summed up.
Stewart, 32, also recounted that the Canadian director and screenwriter received similar reviews for his film The Fly and Shivers. But in general, in Cannes, they have a positive reaction to his new image.
Crimes of the Future is the complete opposite of Kristen Stewart’s last major role. Recall that in the 2021 film Spencer she embodied the image of Princess Diana herself and received her first Oscar nomination for this. Before appearing at the ceremony in March of this year, Stewart talked about how she handled the role:
“I played her when it was hard and sad, but she also had an unstoppable light. And even just trying to touch it, I learned a lot. Especially, I feel I felt like I was allowed to grow as a person. It was in my imagination that I completely convinced myself that suddenly I had the superpower she had – to make people feel good.” , the actress shared.
