Director Compares to Kristen Stewart to a “Herd of Cats”
Kristen Stewart is like a herd of cats… but in a good way!
So says Jake Scott, the director of Welcome to the Rileys, an upcoming drama in which the Twilight Saga star portrays a downtrodden stripper. Asked about working with the actress by E! News, Scott replied:
“She’s very vulpine – very wolfish – and wily, kind of twitchy. Directing her is kind of like wrangling a herd of cats.”
Bella who?!? Kristen Stewart expands her resume in Welcome to the Rileys.
It sounds like the director means this in a complimentary manner, though, as he continued:
“[Kristen]’s been playing this same character in – what? – two or three movies now, and that frustrates her. She wants to be taken seriously as an actress… she’s very proud of her work in this movie.”
The film centers around a couple, played by James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo, who has lost their daughter. In an attempt to recover from this pain, Gandolfini’s character befriends Stewart’s Mallory and attempts to turn her life around.
