'Twilight' Star Kristen Stewart To Rock Out As Joan Jett
"Right now it's sort of just percolating," Stewart said. "Obviously, I have a short amount of time to do that in between the two other films we're shooting back to back. They shut down for I think like eight weeks in New Moon and Eclipse. I'm just listening to her music all the time. I spent New Year's with her. I'm trying to just make myself aware of the time period and what she was going through."
Jett has made herself available to the actress. "It's one of the most immense responsibilities to play a real person. Her story's important. It's an incredibly triumphant feminist story really," Stewart explained. "She's the first woman to ever start her own record label. She's just a good person. She's got ambition. She's got conviction. She's cool. So many people know her as just being like one of the coolest people to ever live. That in itself is one of the most intimidating things that I've ever had to confront but she's so cool too. She's one of the nicest, most soulful women I've ever met. It's an honor, but it really is."
So, will Stewart be singing "Cherry Bomb" and "Born to be Bad?" "I don't want to speak out of place yet. I really hope to be able to actually perform the music, but I just don't know yet. Hopefully I'll be able to tell you guys soon," she said.
