Kristen Stewart is often accused of having "resting bitch face" - ie. when you're not thinking anything in particular and you look annoyed or *judging.* Still, it's not every day you get asked about this by legendary comedy director Woody Allen, even if you are Kristen Stewart.
Speaking with MTV, Kristen reeled off the following anecdote:
I play someone who’s very buoyant [in Allen's movie]. I think I can be light sometimes, but I can’t hide anything. So if I’m thinking about something I look really puzzled. But Woody comes up to me and he was like, ’is your face always in this sort of…state of repose?'
I know that he has not like read the fact that people think that. It totally came from a genuine uninfluenced place. It was like, ’is your resting face…’ he actually used the word resting. I was like, within what context? Right now I think I’m kind of thoughtful, put Jesse in front of me and I’ll start laughing.
Kristen certainly looks cheery and fresh-faced for her new movie, an untitled vintage comedy directed by Woody Allen and co-starring long-time collaborator Jesse Eisenberg.
The bottom line is that Kristen takes it all in good humor. What she really thinks of 'bitchy resting face' is...
It doesn’t bother me. I think honestly it’s all bullsh-t.
