Stewart said she only had a handful of movies in which she thought, “Wow, that person did a great job from top to bottom!”
Kristen Stewart has a self-deprecating approach to her career spanning over 50 films, which took off with the release of the “Twilight” franchise. The actress, now an Oscar nominee for her turn as Princess Diana in Pablo Larraín’s upcoming favorite festival, “Spencer,” spoke to the Sunday Times (via Yahoo) about her work, which since her split from “Twilight” has long gone. been revered by critics. (And of course there is his legion of “Twilight” fans.)
Stewart, who has starred in films by directors like David Fincher and Woody Allen, said the choice of roles can be “total bullshit.” She added, “I probably did five really good movies out of 45 or 50 movies?” The ones I say, ‘Wow, this person did a great job from top to bottom!’ ”

“I love Assayas movies,” she said. “I’d have to look at my credit list, but they’re rare. Doesn’t mean that I regret the experience [of making them]. I only regretted saying yes to a few movies and not because of the outcome, but because it wasn’t fun. The worst part is when you’re in the middle of something and you know that not only is it likely to be a bad movie, but we are all preparing until the end.
Stewart declined to name which projects were less than desirable. “No! I’m not a mean person – I’m not going to call people in public,” she said. “But it’s like starting to date someone and saying ‘Woah! I don’t know what we’re doing! ‘ But when you’re in the middle of a movie, you can’t just break up.
Stewart added that she had never expected “Twilight” to catapult her to such a level of stardom. “If you told me we were going to do five ‘Twilights’ when we did the first one?” I wouldn’t have believed you.
“Spencer” opens in Neon theaters on November 5, and has put Stewart squarely in the best actress conversation.
