Kristen Stewart is, for me, another one of those "just-how-exactly-did-she-become-a-movie-star?" movie stars. I mean really?  Her screen presence is nil; she has only one expression on her face (either on or off the screen) - that of someone who just got a tooth pulled; and her whole "I'm so uncomfortable this whole Hollywood thing. I wish I was somewhere else" B.S. bit gets on my last nerve.

Take a look at the picture above. C'mon, do YOU buy her as this Amazon Joan of Arc warrior ready to do battle against the evil forces? I mean seriously? If it wasn't for those Twilight movies, would she have been anywhere?

Anyway, now that I got that off my chest, her new film Snow White and the Huntsman topped the B.O. weekend chart, beating MIB III. Though Prometheus beats Snow White by a huge margin in overseas markets.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel continues to be an art film hit; and in case you didnl' take notice, The Avengers is now the third biggest grossing film in history, after the James Cameron duo, Titanic (No. 2) and Avatar (No. 1)

1) Snow White and the Huntsman Uni. $56,255,000
2) MIB 3 Sony $29,300,000 Total: $112,300,000 $225
3) Marvel's The Avengers BV $20,273,000 Total:$552,737,000
4) Battleship Uni. $4,810,000 Total: $55,123,000
5) The Dictator Par. $4,725,000 Total: $50,835,000
6) The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel FoxS $4.600,00 Total: $25,497,000
7) What to Expect When You're Expecting LGF $4,430,000 Total: $30,723,000
8) Dark Shadows WB $3,860,000 Total: $70,834,000
9) Chernobyl Diaries WB $3,045,000 Total: $14,416,000
10) For Greater Glory ArcEnt $1,800,000
11) The Hunger Games LGF $1,500,000 Total: $398,274,000
12) Bernie MNE $937,000 Total: $3,651,000
13)  Moonrise Kingdom Focus $849,000 Total: $1,709,000

    I wonder why Kristen Stewart receives real estate and press on a site dedicated to "cinema of the African diaspora?"

  • Laura | June 4, 2012 10:38 PM

    I was thinking the same thing.

  • CareyCarey | June 4, 2012 1:37 PMReply

    Curtis, Nadia, Solaam, BluTopaz, ladies & gentlemen of S&A. I am waving the white flag and an Alford plea (also called a Kennedy plea). It's a plea stating "I'm guilty but I didn't do it", In United States law it's a guilty plea in criminal court, where the defendant does not admit the act and asserts innocence. Under this white flag, I, the defendant admits that sufficient evidence exists with which the prosecution (Curtis and the gang) could likely convince a judge or jury { in this case, many S&A visitors who can't stand the truth and thus are not looking for the truth, but instead will rationalize and justify their racial remarks} to find the defendant (me) guilty. I've come to this conclusion after watching -- yesterday -- the movies The Caine Mutiny and The Talented Mr. Ripley. In "Mutiny" a US Naval captain (Humphrey Bogart) shows signs of mental instability that jeopardizes the ship, the first officer relieves him of command and faces court martial for mutiny. Well, the first officer was found not guilty, however, in the end he faced the most scruntiny b/c he exposed the "deficiencies" of a great US Naval captain. Now, as that movie pertains to this discussion, it's obvious that I, like the alledged mutinus officers, cannot "win" even if I am "right". That's right, as Nadia said, I've come to realize I was on a fool's errand. What purpose would it serve to shine a light on the more than 200 comments that I believed had racial/racist undertones? I mean, when I looked back at what I said and how Curtis and others tried to frame it, I knew they were not looking for the truth and thus were so entrenced in their position that they would never acknowledge the errs of many who visit S&A. That reminds me, look at my statements --> "@ SOLAAM, in all fairness, if you read Greek's comment, he wasn't necessarily speaking "only" to Blutopaz. In fact, the GIST of his comment has been voiced by many others. I mean, if you've been around S&A, you would know that many comments (not cast and crew) have a RACIST TONE" and "So Nadia, it was nice kicking it with you but there is a distinct difference between the words "Gist" and an "exact model/clone". Each person or place in question may have similar characteristics but "Gist" by definition: 1. The central idea; the essence. 2. The grounds for . 3. the point or substance of an argument, speech, etc. 4. the essential point of an action. So again, looking at Nadia's and Curtis's rebuttles (( Nadia said: "Because no matter how many comments you find that are "racist" you definitely won't find enough to support Greek's comparing this site to a blatantly racist, white nationalist and supremacist, neo-Nazi Internet forum that was created by a Ku Klux Klan leader" and Curtis said: "I suspect you [Carey] and I define racism a bit differently. So we'll see. And I'm not asking for comments made against Hollywood, or Oscars as you put it. I'm asking for comments that are plainly racist against white people. I've seen comments from regular readers attacking a person claiming to be white, but because the person claiming to be white set things off with a racist comment of their own")). Yeah riiiight. A blind man can see that Nadia nor Curtis are looking for the truth. They'd rather rationalize and justify and change the meanings of words and frame the arguments to suit their narrow vision, than admit that some S&A visitors are just as racist as those they scorn. So again, I am offering my Alford plea and waving the white flag. This one... this debate is in my rear-view-mirror. Oh... btw, if anyone is wondering how The Talented Mr. Ripley fits this discussion, you'll have to watch the movie (and it's a great one).

  • BluTopaz | June 4, 2012 10:23 PM

    "I'm asking for comments that are plainly racist against white people"

    And I asked what do you mean by the words "white girl cry" and why does the term "drama queen" connotate White girls for you. And true to form, you never answered. You ain't the only one on this site who remembers trivial bullshit.

  • delaney | June 4, 2012 8:48 AMReply

    i think she is great just because she doesn't do the normal hollywood thing all she needs to do now is get rid of robert pattison

  • Peggy | June 3, 2012 10:21 PMReply

    The girl doesn't smile anywhere, even in interviews. They put her in ugly dresses which she is clearly uncomfortable in. I think she is a lesbian which is why they put her in those ugly dresses and pair her up with Pattinson, who couldn't open a movie by himself if he tried. She only has one expression or role - that of "bad girl", hence why she doesn't smile. I thought she was a boy too in Panic Room. I just don't get her. Obviously she is getting these roles because Twilight was such a big hit. But like what happened with the wolf boy, just because you're in a movie that makes tons of money, doesn't mean you can act.

  • mantan | June 4, 2012 6:47 PM

    i had to think about it for a second, too --- wolfboy???! hahaha!!!

  • Ash | June 4, 2012 11:24 AM

    When I read your comment, I wondered who "wolf boy" was for a long time and then when I realized, I laughed.

  • Kid chaos | June 3, 2012 8:14 PMReply

    How can a horse faced white girl get more commets then most of the stories on this site?I t must be alot of black dudes because blacks love white chicks(the ugly ones that is)

  • Akimbo | June 3, 2012 8:08 PMReply

    K-Stew fans, I know it's hard to understand why people don't think the way you do or share your opinions, but ranting & raving in the comments isn't going to change anyone's mind, make you feel better, or benefit Kristen in any way. For those of you who are young, you'll eventually grow out of it; for those of you who arent...well, damn. All of you have better things to do than e-thug on random sites, even of if that better thing is rewatching one of Stewart's projects or writing her a letter.

  • blaqbird | June 4, 2012 8:48 PM

    I was gone at "e-thug". LOL

  • Yes, but read his response in the comments | June 3, 2012 9:15 PM

    I would agree, except read Sergio's response in the comments. Anyone who talks about a person in that manner is an asshole who sounds like he belongs to a frat at Arizona State.

  • cris | June 3, 2012 7:43 PMReply

    Anyone who says she only has one facial expression clearly doesn't have eyes that work. Take a moment and look at pictures of her, and get some glasses if you need to.

  • ME | June 3, 2012 5:44 PMReply

    I have been a Kristen Stewart fan since I saw "Speak" - try it and Into the Wild, Adventureland, Something About the Rileys, and The Runaways. She was good in the first Twilight, but once that became such a huge success, people like you, who I suspect think of themselves as an "intellectual" have trashed her - probably because she makes more money than you and isn't comfortable "in the public eye" where people like you are ready to jump on her at a moment's notice. Probably because she has a teen fan base you feel superior been so harsh. I have known so many like you and all you can contribute is negativity... trust me, shortly you will crash and burn... no great loss. I just saw Snow White and frankly loved it and her performance. It was a kind of fairy tale I remember from childhood. I recommend you go out and get a life...

  • T. Payne | June 3, 2012 7:51 PM

    Why do fans always get their panties in a ruffle when someone doesn't like their favorite film star? We're all entitled to our opinions. I think KS is pretty uneventful, too. So am I just a jealous hater or someone who prefers more talent when I pay to see a film. Get over it. It's not like this girl is your daughter or something. She's boring.

    This comment was posted below by mistake. It was meant as a response to your comment. Sorry, Kelly.

  • Kelly | June 3, 2012 5:28 PMReply

    Your hate for her is very telling. Are you real for this trash article?

    Are Kristen Stewart and Lana Del Rey "besties" yet?

  • E | June 3, 2012 5:13 PMReply

    Moviefone had a pretty interesting OpEd called In Defense of Kristen Stewart this weekend and they cited the fact that quite a few critics seem to like her. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. Personally, I think she was decent in Snow White and the Huntsman, fantastic in The Runaways, shitty in Twilight, fantastic in that film where she played a teenage stripper with Melissa Leo, etc. I just have to say I find this intro a more than a little mean spirited, sorry. Also, A.O. Scott and Dargis (NY Times), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Betsey Sharkey (LA Times), Todd McCarthy (from THR), Ebert...there are quite a few critics that seem to like her quite a bit. Maybe you are being objective and that's your opinion, but the fact that you brought in her public persona...probably not. When people like those critics like an actor/actress, I tend to give them a fair shot and to be objective...maybe you should try being objective, instead of subjective, too.

  • Guy | June 3, 2012 4:41 PMReply

    That is way too harsh, man. Have you seen any of her other movies besides Twilight? Probably not. Loved her in Into the Wild, Adventureland and hear she rocks it in On the Road. I also thought she did damned good in Snow White. I mean Charlize is a goddess no doubt, but I find Kristen Stewart to be very beautiful and sexy. You are acting like a raging hemorrhoid and it is completely unnecessary.

  • Nadine | June 4, 2012 12:39 AM

    @Sergio: Truth

  • Nicole | June 3, 2012 5:18 PM

    @Sergio: Ouch

  • Sergio | June 3, 2012 5:05 PM

    Well let's see since you asked... I saw Into The Wild but I absolutely do not remember her at all in the film except what a boring, long slog that film was to sit through. Saw Zathura but I don't remember her in that either. Did see Adventureland and remembered how she irritated me to no end always looking down in that film and brushing her hair our of her face. And then of course there's Panic Room where for literally half the film I thought she was playing Jodie Foster's SON. I was shocked when I found her he was a SHE. In fact the woman sitting next to me in the theater was also shocked as well and leaned over to me and said "I thought that was boy!" And I did see Snow White. Annoyed the hell out me too in that film and in fact before the screening some friends of mine made a money bet on how many times she would smile in the film. I said twice and I won. Though the second time she does, at the end, it's more of painful grimace as if she in extreme agony (as I was) And if you find her "beautiful" and "sexy" then...well I won't go there. For a second I was going to make a crack what kind of guy like women with the bodies of malnourished 12 year boys but I won't...

  • Shomi | June 3, 2012 4:28 PMReply

    Why are her fans so hardcore? It didn't start until after Twilight and Bella Swan is boring and she's boring playing Bella Swan. It's one of the biggest mysteries today.

  • E | June 3, 2012 5:21 PM

    Not a fan, but also think she is a decent actress. I believe the people get over the top because they think a lot of the critics cross the line and that a lot of the criticism is sexist (in terms of her public persona)....Like the author here is making a lot of judgments off of one photograph....She's not Lilo or Chris Brown, and I can't think of another actress who gets this harsh of a treatment despite many others pulling far more obnoxious stunts than her. The funny thing is, I was reading an interview with Pattinson where he pretty much bashed Twilight...said something along the lines of it was stifling his creativity and said that he had to take directions while filming the series. Yet Stewart, who flips the bird and made some terrible remark about the pap, but doesn't make remarks blaming the director, is seen as the ungrateful one? Sorry, I find that sexist as hell. Also, I suppose I stick up for her occasionally because of what I mentioned before....I tend to read Dargis, A.O. Scott, etc...and they generally tend to like her. They also are known for being very objective...unlike this article, which is pretty subjective.

  • Blah except | June 3, 2012 3:33 PMReply

    She was pretty good @ playing Joan Jett in The Runaways.

  • Yolanda | June 3, 2012 3:22 PMReply

    I felt the same way until I saw her star turn in Welcome to the Rileys with the stellar James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo. If she keeps going against the grain and doing indie films where she can prove her talents KS will be around for a long time.

  • Solaam | June 3, 2012 2:01 PMReply

    Jeez. Sergio surely knows how to get the party started on a Sunday morning. Yikes.

  • BluTopaz | June 3, 2012 2:09 PM

    Word! Now I'm going to find my red, black and green revolution jumpsuit and throw a few molotov cocktails. But after brunch though; I have my priorities.

  • Geneva Girl | June 3, 2012 1:50 PMReply

    I have to see Snow White and the Huntsman because my daughter wants to see it, but I just don't buy the premise: When the queen asks, "Who is the fairest of them all?" it's hard to believe that Kristen Stewart would be chosen over Charlize Theron. Really? At least in the very weak Mirror Mirror it made sense that the Snow White played by the very pretty Lily Collins would be chosen over the tired-looking Julia Roberts. I just don't get Stewart's attraction either.

  • RB | June 3, 2012 1:43 PMReply

    I quite enjoyed this version of Snow white.. Very cinematic, insightful, and even had a bit of hope as its underlining message. In a world of darkness, there's hope. The main actress displayed that very well. Some parts reminded me of a bit Twilight, but, that is why they cast her in the first place, to get those audiences dollars $$. It was executed very well in my opinion.

  • Solaam | June 3, 2012 1:35 PMReply

    Its business. She starred in a franchise that's grossed over a billion dollars worldwide.
    I remember when I saw the Hunger Games, the last two trailers that they displayed were Snow White and the Huntsman and the last Twilight movie. They're trying to get that crowd. They even have a little love triangle built in.

  • William | June 3, 2012 1:17 PMReply

    What are you talking about Blutopaz? White girls are some of her biggest detractors. Some of you really need to get into this girl's filmography outside of "Twilight" because she's proven herself in other films ("Into the Wild," "The Cake Eaters," etc.). She reminds me of a young Jodie Foster, who isn't exactly a supermodel or character actress (aside from her turn in "Nell") either.

  • Elaine | June 3, 2012 4:26 PM

    I agree with Curtis. The only thing Jodie Foster and Kristen Stewart have in common besides Panic Room is they both have an androgynous vibe. They aren't exactly girly girls. That's where it ends though. Foster is articulate, poised, eloquent and just exudes intelligence onscreen. Kristen Stewart does not and she is awkward as hell. Foster also has screen presence even when she is being still. Stewart is stoic onscreen, but she doesn't have the screen presence to be engaging to watch like Foster can be, especially in The Silence of the Lambs and her other thrillers.

  • Curtis | June 3, 2012 1:48 PM

    I don't know about that comparison to Jodie Foster Williams. I see what you're suggesting, but I'm thinking back to a young Jodie Foster who showed range and a peculiarity and presence on screen. Stewart to me just seems to have the same reaction and expression on her face no matter the situation. Have I seen all her movies? No. But I've looked beyond Twilight, so I've seen enough. It's not about looks. She just comes off like she's high all the time LOL.

    Why don't you all check out Women and Hollywood...and so on...though not as direct, the sentiments are the same.

  • William | June 3, 2012 1:18 PM

    Exactly.

  • BluTopaz | June 3, 2012 1:08 PMReply

    She is a major draw for all the plain jane White girls who want to see themselves on screen.

  • Nadine | June 4, 2012 1:07 AM

    It is their minimized presence, and the minimized presence of those who float under their radar, that makes this site one of the most civilized places on the Internet that does not obfuscate "race" ...the proof is in the pudding. Flipping truth on its head is a sign of their presence and/or influence. Especially the cowardly female ones ;)

  • BluTopaz | June 3, 2012 6:43 PM

    awww the neo-nazi wannabe hurt my feelings.....Using non-sensical, teenager language like ' go die in a fire!!!!!' lets me know further what kind of demon I'm talking to. It is the last resort of angry, diseased individuals. I read stuff like that (and I've been told much worse and laughed) and I visualize screaming, angry, red-faced mobs spitting on people, and hordes of ranting "others". And actually this dialogue is an example of how online Black folks dialogue often stimulates interesting convo, and ALSO attracts cockroaches like yourself when the lights are switched on. Yours is also a charming example of why a site like S&A is so popular to begin with, all flattery aside. There aren't many film & media websites that address the kinds of topics discussed here, and your ilk always finds your way to Black sites because it enrages you that they exist. My comment about KS pales in comparison (pun intended) to a lot of the comments I've read re: Black actors from "others" on other websites ; so you can go back to being fascinated with Black people. Racist sociopaths are usually paranoid, which is the main reason why your ilk is obsessed with the same people you desperately cannot stay away from.

  • Picking Goods | June 3, 2012 6:04 PM

    @ BluTopaz - Haha. You know my post was completely dead-on, which is why you have no real retort besides some childish rubbish like that. You're a charming example of why black people are so well respected worldwide. ;)

  • BluTOPAZ | June 3, 2012 5:58 PM

    @ Picking--Typical response from a miserable waste of flesh who loves Black people so much, you can't stay off our websites. Go back to screwing your sister, then shoot yourself in the head after burning crosses and fantasizing about raping minorities.

  • Picking Goods | June 3, 2012 5:54 PM

    Typical ghetto response from a racist piece of trash (notice I didn't say black this time). If a white person made the same comment you did about Keke Palmer and black girls, you'd want to crucify them, so go burn in a fire.

  • CareyCarey | June 3, 2012 4:33 PM

    OH LORD, Curtis's spin cycle is working. Nadia, to be clear, Greek DID NOT compare this site to a blatantly racist, white nationalist and supremacist, neo-Nazi Internet forum that was created by a Ku Klux Klan leader. I mean really? Here's what he said--> "This site is STARTING TO turn into the black VERSION of Stormfront. So look, it cannot be denied that the name "On Cinema Of The BLACK Diaspora" speaks to an exclusionary status -- first and foremost. Consequently, although one may be able present an argument that "blatant" racist do not frequent this site, we all know better than that. Unless you Nadia, are implying that no black folks are racists? Anyway, I see Blutopaz, Curtis and you are trying to move the goal post but it's not working. The Gist of Greek's comment (that's what I said) is that many of Shadow & Act's visitors focus on the race of actors in general. In doing so -- on many occassion --- they tear down the white actors in question, in a failed attempt to position the black actors in front of them. As you well know, that's an exact tactic used by "stormfront". So Nadia, it was nice kicking it with you but the is a distinct difference between the words "Gist" and an "exact model". Each person or place in question may have similar characteristics but....

  • Nadia | June 3, 2012 3:40 PM

    Lol @Carey and @Curtis. Curtis is this was a ploy to just keep Carey busy and off the boards for a minute, that's hilarious. But Carey I thought you knew better. This is a fool's errand. Because no matter how many comments you find that are "racist" you definitely won't find enough to support Greek's comparing this site to a blatantly racist, white nationalist and supremacist, neo-Nazi Internet forum that was created by a Ku Klux Klan leader. I mean really? You really believe Greek's statement has merit at all that you're actually putting in the time to defend it? Really? Jezus! But go ahead and continue making a fool of yourself.

  • BluTopaz | June 3, 2012 3:32 PM

    @ CAREY--I'm starting your list for you:

    "because I KNOW what time it is. In short, miss me with the "white girl cry". "
    http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/0d245890-a445-11e1-bcc4-123138165f92

    "CareyCarey | May 23, 2012 12:13 PM

    "Please Lauren Bacall (below) , enough of the white girl cry (drama queen)."
    http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/6adf2440-a0e1-11e1-bcc4-123138165f92

    Afterwards you can pontificate ad nauseum about what exactly is a "white girl cry", since it appears to be a negative connotation for YOU that involves White women specifically. You are welcome.

  • Curtis | June 3, 2012 3:25 PM

    Not back-peddling at all. I've been on this site long enough to know how you *operate* and I'm simply trying to keep you from wandering, as you sometimes do.

    Plainly racist is just that. Don't shake and bake. And 2 S&A visitors isn't enough to support your argument that Greek's comment "has been voiced by many others." You're going to need a lot more than 2 to make that claim. And don't forget to provide the context within which comments are made. For example, I've seen comments from regular readers attacking a person claiming to be white, but because the person claiming to be white set things off with a racist comment of their own. Those scenarios don't count for very obvious reasons.

    I'm just trying to save you time so that you don't come back with some comments that don't count. But I'm waiting for your list.

  • Akimbo | June 3, 2012 3:20 PM

    Whatever to Kristen Stewart, but I just gotta say that Emma Stone is a hilarious and charming actress. I loved her in Easy A and can completely understand why she keeps working.

  • CareyCarey | June 3, 2012 3:07 PM

    Slow your role Curtis. let me do my thing b/c it appears you're pumping the brakes and back peddling. You cannot define racism in your terms (plainly racist!?), nor can you restrict where I find racist remarks. See Curtis, I get the feeling that you know you're walking in quicksand, but I am not going to throw you a rope. But if you want to concede, I do accept apologies :-). Btw, be forewarned that I already have direct quotes from 2 S&A visitors who/that support my argument that the gist of Greek's comment "has been voiced by many others". In short Curtis, you can run while you try in vain to handcuff me, and you can hide behind your definition of "racist remarks" but in the end, I am suggesting that you practice your concession speech. I know you know you're standing on porous ground but please leave me alone while I search the posts on "The Help" and the author, Oscars, Hunger Games (tweets and all), the firing of Holly Robinson Peete from The View, practically every post on Halle Berry, Hollywood, HBO's "Girls", and many -- several -- MORE! And again, I am asking others to help me shine a mirror in the direction of some of our more lambasting commenters. Drop the links... if you don't mind receiving evil mean mugs.

  • Curtis | June 3, 2012 2:31 PM

    @Carey - and don't forget the first part of the questions: Please support your argument that the gist of Greek's comment "has been voiced by many others." I'd like you to provide a healthy sample of other comments made on this site that support Greek's comment that have been voiced by many others.

  • Curtis | June 3, 2012 2:29 PM

    @Carey - Looking forward to seeing your list. I suspect you and I define racism a bit differently. So we'll see. And I'm not asking for comments made against Hollywood, or Oscars as you put it. I'm asking for comments that are plainly racist against white people, made by black people on this site.

  • CareyCarey | June 3, 2012 2:15 PM

    Okay Solaam and Curtis, I accept your challenge. This will not be difficult in the least. And I am *LOL* at Curtis handcuffing me, but I understand :-). So, anyway, I have to have a little time to compile my list, but I shall return. But check game, while I am gone, I can safely assume that other commenters can post "racist comment's" that fell from the mouths of black folks, right? Heck, like I said, this is a cake walk b/c practically every day --- somebody in S&A --- is making a racist remark about a white person, Hollywood, Oscars etc.

  • Solaam | June 3, 2012 1:57 PM

    @CAREYCAREY - I've been reading Shadow and Act for a while and haven't seen any "white" commenters met with any racist comments. Not to say it hasn't happened, I just haven't seen it. Also, I wonder if those guys came on to the site (racist) guns blazing and just got return fire.
    Regardless, to compare this site to Stormfront is a ridiculous leap and the comment should not be treated with "fairness".

  • Curtis | June 3, 2012 1:57 PM

    @Carey - Please support your argument that the gist of Greek's comment "has been voiced by many others." I'd like you to provide a healthy sample of other comments made on this site that support Greek's comment. And secondly do the same thing to support your argument that "many comments have a racist tone" or that when commenters identify themselves as white, they are "met with a host of racist comments." Please support all of that substantively. Not just point out one of two past comments. And don't deflect the questions, or start a whole new argument. I'm asking you very specific questions that require specific answers. And don't answer questions that haven't been asked.

    @ SOLAAM, in all fairness, if you read Greek's comment, he wasn't necessarily speaking "only" to Blutopaz. In fact, the gist of his comment has been voiced by many others. I mean, if you've been around S&A, you would know that many comments (not cast and crew) have a racist tone. Heck, on occassion, when commenters identify themselves as "white" they -- on occassions --- are met with a host of racist comments. So I understand Greek's concerns.

    Now I've read it all. I remember Tambay saying a few weeks ago that a reader accused S&A of initiating class warfare. Today another reader is saying it's the black equivalent of Stormfront. LOL! How the eff do you even respond to something as stupid as that? Here come the trolls again.

    @ PICKING ----Your reply is what's called Deflection 101. When you are through trolling Black sites, see my reply to your friend there. Otherwise go back to lurking and stfu, you projecting POS.

    Oh, I've seen that before, Blutopaz. Kristen Stewart has been on red carpets and not smiled and been dull and then some website says something about it. And then all of a sudden you have a rush of "fans" come in and defend her right to be plain and unrefined.

  • BluTopaz | June 3, 2012 1:32 PM

    @ GREEK--When you see posts calling for the deaths of Whites via mass genocide, get back to me about some stormfront.

  • BluTopaz | June 3, 2012 1:30 PM

    I don't know who Emma Stone is, but this chick--I have read on sites where she has been criticized and White female fans (usually feminists) vehemently defend her everyday ordinary-ness. They often get defensive, stating why does a woman need to be glamorous, sexy, etc. They miss the point; a box of bricks has more personality than KS.

    @Greek - Blutopaz's comment was enough for you to make that reply? Comparing Shadow and Act to Stormfront? Really? Are you f'n kidding me?

  • Picking Goods | June 3, 2012 1:25 PM

    @BluTopaz Typical racist trash. Now you all see why black people are considered the most racist people on the planet alongside whites.

  • Ali | June 3, 2012 1:23 PM

    I think Emma Stone fits that more because she actually gets to do "pretty girl" things in her films even though she's arguably plain and pretty normal. It's easy for a Plain Jane to put herself in Emma Stone's place. And she's got a nice personality, so I see why people like her. Kristen Stewart doesn't have as many diehard fans from what I've seen. People always criticize her.

    This site is starting to turn into the black version of Stormfront.
