I wish they could, but there are a few things to remember. That would be her highlights, or to many of us her lowlights from 2012.
Remember her Grand entrance at Cannes?
While all the other stars smiled and made there way through the airport packed with Press awaiting the arrivals. She gave them all the finger.
From every angle. These men are paid and have a permit and work for reputable news agencies all over the world and that was how she greeted them. Can you imagine that as your first impression of her?
Lucky for them they were able to sell them to the tabloids. They were actually the only ones interested.
Then when the introduction party was thrown the first day at Cannes she proceeds to cover her face with the largest paperback version of OTR ever seen. It was probably all color pictures with few words just for her.
The real stars of the movie all smiled at the press. Because that is what you are expected to do there. Sell your movie, sell yourself.
Oh and let’s not forget the big photocall for the film. This is where they really sell it. Show the world how happy they are to be there and how well they get along. But this was how she chose to sell it. You might note the pictures you see on XXXsten blogs chose to ignore these or altered them. I wonder why?
The press described her as sullen and rude. Her costars worked overtime to get her to laugh and smile. They teased her and told jokes. After all they were trying to save their movie from the bad press she was creating. I felt most sorry for Kirsten. It looked like she was the one assigned to do the task.
And one more thing about that photocall. She actually booed the press. Who would have thought they would return the favor later on the red carpet. LMAO
Then during the press conference she stated her scenes in the film are real. She put it out there for all the world to see.
She confessed. She actually gave those 2 actors a hand job? Talk about awkward. Did you notice how uncomfortable the guys were and the laughter like “she is just kidding.” But she was not. And just think how young she was when she signed on.
Again, I am sorry for Kirsten.
You can watch the interview here.
But we were not done. No far from it.
We found out that the press had to pay for interviews, and guess what? No one was buying when it came to Kristen. In fact they came with conditions to do so. Ever wonder why there were so many solo interviews with Rob and Kristen only had a couple? The fact that she only appeared after that with her costars would indicate they begged the press to include her and bribed them using the rest of the cast. Either way that did not look good, did it?
Oh and let’s not forget the cancellation of the most important interview sponsored by The Cannes Film Festival. ‘Le Grande Journal.’ That was very strange wasn’t it? That happened at the last minute.
How about her premier?
The way she dressed. Some said it looked like she was wearing her Grandmother’s curtains.
And the critics blasted the film. It received the 3rd worst score out of 50 films the attending critics rated. Sad but true.
And the really sad part was she retaliated against the press again on her way out of the premier. Did she know already? The poor guy was very polite and took her abuse like a professional. That just made her look more like a douche.
But she was just warming up or her meltdown was just beginning.We still had the OTR After party. You can interpret what you want from the awkward couple of minutes of Papz film that has been edited, altered and slowed down by fans to show what is not there. Maybe she got news of the bad reviews and what people were saying about her.
It looks like Rob was trying to cheer her up and luckily (how convenient) the Papz had the perfect view.
Then the “Cosmopolis’ premier. That was a great moment for Rob and no one, not even she could steal that. In fact she disgraced herself.
The dress and the Boos, She did not look happy did she? She acted like it was the last place she wanted to be and maybe it was.
You can see the actual footage here.
It was Tom who had the coveted seat opposite Rob at his premier. Not Kristen. And she did not appear to be happy. Jealous much?
No there were no tears of joy like the XXXstens claimed. Maybe jealousy?
That is what it looked like. After all it was a stark difference from the film she was in. With all that longest standing ovation stuff to compare. And the reaction of the crowds and critics in general.
But again she was not done. She made her way through the crowd trying to get to Rob. He gave her a few awkward seconds as he braced himself against a seat. I always thought she may have been saying how much she hated him for upstaging her. It was her fault for showing up. Sadly her hug was not returned and maybe that is why.
But no, it was not over. At least for her it was about to be though. This is where her obvious meltdown ended. At her hotel (And no Rob was staying at a hotel miles away with his team and the rest of the cast that was provided by a sponsor at Cannes.)
You can watch it here.
Ignore the reporter who obviously knows nothing. She can’t even pronounce the name of Rob’s film right. But Kristen is the one pushing and shoving. All the fans and reporters are behind barriers. She even knocked over a police officer there to protect her. How awkward was that? Rob and his team left her in the dust.
Oh and the guy not in the tux and wearing jeans is her body guard and the guy who is not Rob but her cast mate escorted her to her room. That was the last we would see of her at Cannes in 2012.
You see Rob was nice enough to drop her off. After all Rob had his best friend Tom and another one of her cast she was very friendly with were in his entourage that night. Is that the same guy who took her to her room?
So these people had to be dropped off as well because they were staying at the same hotel as she was. Yes, the entire cast of OTR stayed at the same hotel. Go figure. You can see Danny, Tom and her bodyguard as they enter the premier of ‘Cosmopolis.’
And Rob just walked off with Dean to be with his fans and then went back to the parties for his film all while she was escorted back to her room to pack. Yes I did say pack. A few hours later she was on a flight back to LA.
The competition was not over. There were more premiers. Rob stayed and supported Reese at her premier. That is what friends do after all. You would think she would have wanted to be there to support her film and go to others. You know, check out the competition.
And the XXXstens stated she had work to do. Really? You know I am willing to bet Rupert was in LA. Maybe he was better at consoling her.
So what you have to ask yourself is …..
Will we have another replay or does her team think she has matured enough to handle something as prestigious as Cannes again and not embarrass Oscar winner Juliette Binoche in what is really her film.
