Somehow, this little nugget slipped right through the cracks ... until today.
Lately, Kristen Stewart's name has been coming up a lot, despite the fact that she's currently on break until filming for Focus picks up this April. Why? Well, her mother Jules Mann Stewart is currently ushering in her directorial debut, K-11, and her famous daughter is a topic of real interest for a lot of folks.
Not only are they related, but Kristen Stewart also did a voice micro-cameo in the film which has now been unearthed (see/listen to attached video). Jules Stewart did say that Stewart's part in the film - which was originally supposed to be larger before she signed on for Snow White And The Huntsman and in fact even once upon a time included Twilight co-star Nikki Reed - would be small, and boy was she right. It sounds like Stewart simply says "You have reached the Los Angeles off-" before being cut off. Her brother Cameron Stewart, however, has a much larger part in the flick.
Making way through the interview circuits, "MamaStew" has had a lot to say about her famous little girl, and below are a few of the most major tidbits of interest.
Cinema Assassin: "Originally my daughter attached herself to play the role of Butterfly and I thought that would have been amazing but as the years went by and you have got to remember this is six years in the making, Six years ago when my daughter was 16, 17 years old she wanted to play Butterfly really bad. We kind of altered the character to suit her. As time went buy she got really popular she was doing much bigger films. We thought it would be much better for everybody if she went and did Snow White."
Los Angeles Times: "To the world, I have no name. I am 'Mama Stew' — that's what they call me, all of her zillions of fans. Or I'm Kristen's mom; I'm famous for being her mom. Most of the female directors that are successful in this business came up through the ranks. And I'm hoping to follow in their footsteps. I have my own career. My own thing going on. And I would hate to think that it's because of my 22-year-old that I got to direct a movie."
NY Daily News: "If publications have no news about someone, they make it up, and it hurts people. I've read in magazines at the grocery store that my daughter is pregnant, that she’s having a three-headed baby, that she married an alien. Obviously some stories are so ridiculous you know they can’t be true. But other false stories could potentially be true. As a mother, it is difficult to read things that I know for a fact are not true."
US Weekly: "Kristen has a dark side. Kristen has the edge -- thank god, right?"
