Kristen Stewart Gets Critics’ Love Big-Time for Stripper Role in ‘Welcome To The Rileys!’ READ ALL THE HEAPING PRAISE!

Posted Fri, October 29, 2010 1:49pm EDT

Could the artist best known as Bella in ‘Twilight’get Oscar acclaim for her prostitute role in ‘Rileys?’

Here’s the bad news: The critics are pretty lukewarm about Welcome to the Rileys. “Gloomy,” “creaky,” “embalmed” — just a small sample of the critical reaction.

But here’s the totally awesome news:  Kristen Stewart is getting incredible praise for playing Mallory, a troubled young woman who turns to prostitution. Some of the nation’s toughest critics are drooling:

  • “She’s an exceptionally appealing screen presence, and she makes Mallory’s confusion — the swings between vulgar braggadocio and clutching vulnerability — reverberant and real. ” Manohla Dargis, NY Times
  • “She just gets better at bringing a naked vulnerability to her performances. Here it’s like watching a slide show of anger, pain, innocence, outrage and mischief play across her face.” Betsey Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
  • “As usual, she’s just there, but I can’t think of another young actress who makes her there-ness work so well.” Ty Burr, Boston Globe
  • “The Twilight Saga Stewart should deliver a curious audience — and she certainly satisfies that curiosity.” Dan Kois, Village Voice
  • “Stewart is the perfect wretch, utterly convincing as a lost girl leveraging her sexuality to compensate for her complete powerlessness.” Peter Debruge, Variety

And maybe most impressive of all — the often acerbic Lou Lumenick of the New York Post thinks K-Stew’s performance is “awards-caliber” and “haunting.

About Kristen Stewart.
Of course you will not understand her, of course you think that she isn’t believable like V.i.p., of course you are not going to know whats going on with her, you will never understand her. Your world is superficial, you just look at appearance .
It is selfish be always the center of everybody’s attention, just some egocentric people could like this, but if you have a little of intelligence, which means to know how to use your brain cells, you could not think the Star-system desiderable. No one is worth enough of so much attention, cause no one is so perfect, so it is normal to try to push down anything that could make you feel wrongly better than someone else. Only smart people understand that there is nothing good in be a pubblic person, it is a responsability that no one could desire. Imagine that milion of young people look at everything you do, its a big responsability to give a good example, if you don’t care you could do like Linsday Lohan (i hope that she will forget me) that she doesn’t care, but if you care, it is not easy to be an example, you are not going to have any freedom to make any mistakes anymore, and all the world is going to ask you to be perfect also if you are just 20 y.o.!!!!
It is unbelievable, in this f**** world if you care to what are you sayng, if you are nervous because you understand that all this fame for one person is an excess and it’s wrong, if you don’t love all the gossip stuff, you are crazy or not normal. But if you act like a bad girl, or like a big star believing that you are a goddess and a Very important person (!!!!) yes, your behaviour is standard. I like Kristen Stewart because she doesn’t think like this, and she is the only one, between all the young actresses, that feels like this. I really admire her for how is brave. More i see her legs shaking for nervous, more i understand. It is bad to be alone, is the same feeling for all the rebel people, the society is going to don’t understand us, but rebellion is the first step before wisdom. Team K-Stew.
p.s. sorry for my english :)

If she gets nominated for this, I’ve seen it and it’s the same lip biting character from ever single movie she’s every been in, I will be extremely surprised.
