Kristen Stewart, and her boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, are perhaps two of the hottest and most-buzzed about young actors on the current Hollywood scene. Their highly popular Twilight Saga and the final Breaking Dawn installments have become near obsessions for Twihards and have won them fans the world over. And their romantic relationship has cemented their status as an "it" couple, both on-screen and off. But their talent extends way beyond vampire status. In fact, Stewart is making waves in her Snow White and the Huntsman flick and was recently at the Cannes Film Festival celebrating her indie-cool movie, On The Road. And one hot actor is taking note. James Franco just dedicated a lengthy and verbose blog post, extolling the virtues of the actress.
But what would Robert Pattinson think of such effusive forwardness? Well, for starters, he would probably concur with most every word written by the quirky, talented and academic Franco.
There have been many of Stewart's co-stars who have sung her praisesÂ—from Charlize Theron's cool compliments to Jackson Rathbone calling her a good vampire.
But the erudite and multi-hyphenate Franco (actor-director-producer-author-student-and the list goes on) backs up his claims with quite the wordy fire power. He certainly put his creative writing skills to work and penned an intelligent discourse for the Huffington Post, paralleling Stewart and her "rise to stardom" with her Snow White character. Even the title is glowingly in favor of the star: "Kristen Stewart the Queen."
Franco, 34, notably quashes the notion that Twilight was somehow a "lucky break" for Stewart. "Stewart landing Twilight after years of working with some of the best directors in the business... She actually deserves the crown." Indeed, with such a blockbuster movie series on her resume, it's easy to forget at times that Stewart has paid her dues. Her freshman effort was not as Bella Swan.
As for Stewart and SWATH, James Franco had even more good things to say: "The images of Snow White as a leader of immense strength, charging on horseback across the beach at the head of an army, has less to do with her character and more to do with the actress who plays her... Stewart has braved more scrutiny of her private life than most presidents. She has taken big career risks... She has worked her a** off. Whatever Snow White may be, Kristen Stewart is a warrior queen. Give her the crown."
Just don't make her wear the tiara off the movie set, right?! It might not suit her tomboy-ish jeans and Converse sneakers.
Throughout his fascinating essay, Franco also called Stewart "beautiful" and "intelligent." Click here to read the entire thing. It's definitely worthy of an A-plus... and Pattinson would no doubt agree!
