22 Oct – Following a social media campaign to cast her as the Joker to her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson's Batman, Kristen Stewart finally decided to share her thoughts about it, and the answer is....
The actress, who recently won praises everywhere for her performance as Princess Diana in "Spencer", told Variety recently that she loves the energy behind fans' enthusiasm, but that she would rather do something new.
"It's really been done so well. I feel like, maybe, we don't traipse over, but I love that gusto. Let's figure something else out. I'm totally down to play a freaky, scary person."
However, Stewart stressed that she is not saying no definitely, just that she is not the most stoked about doing a gender reversal for the character that has been made famous by many legends like Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger, Joaquin Phoenix, and even Mark Hamill, who voiced the character in the animated version.
It is noted that Stewart has been getting the Oscar buzz since her performance in "Spencer", with many believe that she could be nominated and winning the award for the first time, besting great performances this year from the likes of Olivia Colman ("The Lost Daughter"), Penélope Cruz ("Parallel Mothers") and even Frances McDormand ("The Tragedy of Macbeth").
