K-Stew doesn’t just want to leave Bella behind — she wants to play someone totally twisted! Can you picture her in a darker role?
Kristen Stewart reveals her dream role in the June 2012 issue of ELLE magazine — and it’s actually pretty messed up. She says she wants to play Peyton Loftis, a suicidal young girl in love with her father, in a screen adaptation of the novel Lie Down In Darkness. “I want to play Peyton more than anything I can possibly taste or touch in my life,” Kristen says. “I want to play her so bad.”
“She’s in love with him,” Kristen says of Peyton and her father in the book. “I mean, I think she’s in love with him. It’s not his fault. They’re the most f***ed-up family.”
Kristen even knows who she’d want to play Peyton’s father!
“[Colin] Firth would be perfect,” she tells the interviewer.
But there’s another dark role K-Stew also has her eye on for when she gets a little older: Cathy from East of Eden! For those of you who haven’t read the book, Cathy is a twisted murderous woman who leaves her twin children behind to operate a brothel.
“She’s a psychopathic, evil c**t!” Kristen points out. “I haven’t done that yet.”
No, she certainly hasn’t! Can YOU imagine K-Stew taking on either of those dark roles? We knew she wanted to break away from Bella, but that’s a total 180!
