We’ve showed you behind-the-scene pictures of filming and a clip from The Runaways, and now the film finally debuted at the Sundance Film Festival yesterday starring two Twilight Saga: New Moon girls Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. They posed with the rest of the cast and the real life Runaways, Joan Jett and Cherie Currie.
During the Saturday premier for Welcome To The Rileys, in which she plays a prostitute, Stewart was able to slip in and out undetected, but she had to walk the red carpet for The Runaways. The short haired star, in a zip-up and jeans, was reportedly withdrawn as usual in the face of reporters and their questions, but did say of Joan Jett, the rocker she portrays “She’s incredibly outspoken and embodies freedom in every way. It wasn’t easy for me to get there.”
I can imagine it would be tough to go from Bella to a drug and lady loving rocker. Joan Jett had reportedly been concerned with Stewart getting her portrayal down right, but early reviews are saying she nailed it.
