I’ve added new high quality candids photos of Kristen Stewart seen at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival on January 17, 2014 on the streets of Park City, Utah.
Kristen Stewart is hooking up with Jennifer Lawrence‘s boyfriend . . . on the big screen. The 23-year-old actress has signed on to star opposite Nicholas Hoult in the upcoming futuristic love story Equals. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Stewart explains why she’s nervous to take on the part.
“I can’t believe I agreed to do it,” Stewart told The Associated Press on Monday, Jan. 14. “I’m terrified of it. Though it’s a movie with a really basic concept, it’s overtly ambitious.”
“It’s a love story of epic, epic, epic proportion,” she added. “I’m scared.”
Equals is an adaptation of the 1956 film 1984, which itself was based on George Orwell‘s classic novel about rebellion in a futuristic society. The project begins filming later this year with director Drake Doremus, who also directed Lawrence, 23, in 2011′s Like Crazy.
“I trust Drake’s process and I know we will do something really natural and real,” Stewart said. “But I told Drake, ‘Don’t expect that I am going to be able to do this. It’s too hard.’ But he wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. I’ve given directors disclaimers before, but never this much.”
Doremus has complete confidence in his leading stars, telling The Associated Press, “It became evident in my head that Nick and Kristen would have great chemistry.” The director did confess, however, that Lawrence first read the script and was brought to tears by it, but couldn’t see herself in the role. (Lawrence and Hoult, 24, rekindled their romance back in July. The X-Men: Days of Future Past costars had previously split in January following a two-year romance. Stewart, meanwhile, split from real-life boyfriend and Twilight costar Robert Pattinson back in May.)
Twilight star Stewart and Hunger Games star Lawrence were rumored to be feuding back in March 2012, but the leading ladies denied the reports and hung out together at the Toronto Film Festival in September. “She’s so cool,” Stewart told MTV News of spending time with Lawrence. “I was a lot younger than her when I first sort of entered this world of franchise land, and I don’t know, I guess we sort of both went, ‘Wow, this is so weird.’ We were actually sitting in a corner with [Harry Potter star] Emma Watson as well, the three of us. We were like, ‘Wow, this is strange. This is really cool.’”
“I think people assume that actresses don’t want to [be friends],” Stewart added. “It was kind of a great feeling, to be honest. I was like, ‘This is kind of just awesome.’”

Kristen Stewart has signed on to play the lead in “Like Crazy” director Drake Doremus’ futuristic love story “Equals,” and it’s making her a nervous wreck.
“I can’t believe I agreed to do it,” said the “Twilight” actress about her upcoming role in the sci-fi drama, which also stars Nicholas Hoult of the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
Stewart describes “Equals” as a slightly updated version of the 1956 film “1984,” based on George Orwell’s classic 1949 novel about rebellion in a repressed futuristic society. “Equals” begins filming later this year.
“I’m terrified of it,” said the 23-year-old actress in a recent interview. “Though it’s a movie with a really basic concept, it’s overtly ambitious.”
“In ‘Equals,’ things go wrong because you can’t deny the humanity in everyone,” said Stewart. “It’s the most devastating story.”
Adds Doremus of his sixth film: “It’s about love in a world where love really doesn’t exist anymore.”
Written by Nathan Parker (“Moon”), “Equals” is the first film Doremus will direct that he didn’t write himself.
“I trust Drake’s process and I know we will do something really natural and real,” said Stewart. “But I told Drake, ‘Don’t expect that I am going to be able to do this. It’s too hard.’ But he wouldn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. I’ve given directors disclaimers before, but never this much.”
Jennifer Lawrence, who appeared in 2011′s “Like Crazy,” was one of the first actresses to read Parker’s script. Though the story brought her to tears, she couldn’t see herself in the role, said Doremus.
“It became evident in my head that Nick and Kristen would have great chemistry,” the director said.
“It’s a love story of epic, epic, epic proportion,” added Stewart. “I’m scared.”
This week, the actress heads to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where she’ll star in writer-director Peter Sattler’s soldier film “Camp X-Ray.”

I’ve added a new promotional shoot of Kristen Stewart for ‘Rosabontanica’ advertising campaign.
It’s been a tough year for Twihards. The film series ended, Robsten split, and neither Kristen Stewart nor Robert Pattinson has graced the screen since. But wait: Stewart’s angsty lip curl can now be spotted on a new crop of Balenciaga ads for Rosabotanica (Florabotanica’s follow-up scent), where her stony, smoky-eyed stare contrasts the vivid floral vines creeping over her shoulder. The spicy rose-pepper blend aptly reflects the non-conformist personality the 23-year-old’s fans have come to adore.
Stewart’s F-bombed frankness and red-carpet Chuck Taylors are some of her best assets—because they’re real. “I had looked at the fashion world as superficial,” she admits when asked about her collaboration with Balenciaga’s former creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, whom she considers a “true artist.” “Before the photo shoot I did with him, it was always fucking torture,” she says of studio sessions. It’s this passion-first attitude that precipitated a gutsy two-year acting hiatus. “Unless there’s a story that you just fucking have to help bring to life, it’s not worth it,” she explains. Two roles have lured her back. In Sils Maria, she portrays a personal assistant to a troubled, aging actress, played by real-life Oscar winner Juliette Binoche. And in Camp X-Ray, a drama set in Guantanamo Bay, she plays a simple girl with unwavering ideals who realizes life isn’t black-and-white. “Her eyes are smashed open, and I know that feeling,” Stewart says, hinting, perhaps, at last year’s troubles.
As Twi fans wait for those flicks and her newly announced Chanel fashion campaign to be released later this year, they continue to beg, via tear-filled YouTube tirades, for a Bella-and-Edward reunion, be it fictional or real. Meanwhile, gossip blogs speculate daily about the pair’s on-again, off-again status. “They cast you as easily identifiable characters they can sell to the masses,” says Stewart. “When people pick up newspapers and read perfect summaries of my life in little concise stories, it’s kind of silly. Can anyone’s life be put into words like that?” Stewart is far from one-dimensional, and it’s that sense of mystery that keeps us hooked. A rose any less thorny surely wouldn’t be as sweet.
