Red Carpets

A well known fan site I frequent has had a good discussion going this week regarding future openness (or not) by Rob and Kristen regarding their relationship.
Specifically, the topic discussed is if they will support each other or not on the Red Carpet when one of them has a premiere.   My view on the topic has changed a bit as this discussion has proceeded.

Those of us who are truly fans of them wish for them to be able to experience some normality in their relationship.  We can't help but smile at them when they look at each other, when that bubble is up,  and there needn't be guilt over this if we witnessed this in a setting such as the Eclipse premiere.  I don't care that they were working that night: people just don't look at each other like that without something quiet serious going on.   But since they were supposed to be there together, they had the perfect excuse.   If they behave even remotely close to that, say for example, at a Welcome To The Riley's screening, then their relationship would be the story and the movie an afterthought.

But can they show up together, ignore all the reporters, and simply be there together?  That all depends on what they are comfortable with.   The relationship
is old news, but it's still the hottest topic.   Such an appearance would certainly draw coverage.  To what degree?  The first one would probably be huge.  And, IMO, it would begin to taper off afterwards.        

Most true fans agree that the private nature of the relationship is special.   As Rob said during his Nightline interview, he is not trying to "sell" it.   That interview was as close to an admission as there has been.   Kristen wouldn't even have allowed that much discussion.   It's far too real to "sell" therefore, protecting it is the absolute correct action.   For Rob and Kristen, with their relationship being the uber hot topic that it is, the "no comment" IS really necessary to counter balance what's already in the public domain.

So there is the need to protect what is real.  Plus, neither of them are attention whores. I have written before that one the most appealing traits about Kristen (and thus, Rob) is being 100% genuine.   She grew up in Hollywood and it's my opinion that one of her biggest turn offs is the fakeness that permeates much of Hollywood and the endless self promotion of some it's inhabitants.               
The Red Carpet is sort of a cheesy, self-indulgent, "look at me" kind of deal.   It's the kind of event I think I Kristen never looks forward too, regardless of her relationship.

We might see Rob show up at her movies, and vice versa.  Kristen showed up solo (for the cameras she was solo) at Rob's Remember Me premiere.   However appearing as a couple on the Red Carpet doesn't seem to fit the R\K personality.
As a  friend stresses to me, the best we can hope for is that they can choose to do what feels comfortable to them.  Our vicarious addiction must come a distant second.

One final thought of a hypothetical future event that will happen someday.   And its just opinion as is everything else i say.   If Kristen were nominated for an Academy Award ---- Wild horses couldn't keep Rob from being there to cheer the loudest.

Back the eff of Kristen

I don't have time for more than paragraph this morning. I am just pleased to see Kristen wearing the Beasty Boys T-shirt that we last saw Rob wearing in Montreal.
It doesn't matter when the picture was taken, or who the shirt belongs too.

This 20 year girl takes way too much hate from grown women, who disgust me, and who should know better. Leave Kristen alone, "get off her dick."

I hope Kristen knows that the number of people that love her, for exactly who she is, far exceeds the small, yet vocal, group of fringe lunatics that promote hate.

A recap, roadtrip to see Kristen

Last week was kind of interesting. We saw the script flipped on the American tradition of traveling across of Europe. Some of us were lucky enough get to do this after graduating college. I wasn't one of the lucky ones. There are some major differences in what some of us got to do in Europe as opposed what Robert and his pals did --- but it's still an experience that you do with your close friends, when you are young and not tied down with a 9-5 job.

It's a shame that while in Texas, they stopped in Lubbock, where I went to college, and got surrounded by gawking sorority girls after someone announced his whereabouts on Facebook.

Then they next stopped in Austin, where I lived for the past decade, and basically had an entire bar to themselves. I am proud of my neighbors for letting them have some peace. It was a slow night in Austin, but even if it wasn't, we are used to seeing celebrities here. ****Austin is on any musicians radar, plus we have a respectable film industry here. I am sure he will be back. Last spring, Kristen was here for a screening of The Runaways, plus she enjoyed several bands during the SXSW Film/Music/Interactive festival. I had a comment the upcoming Austin City Limits festival, but I going to hold that thought for now****

Young Americans are not tweeted about when they board a train in London bound for Amsterdam or every time they walk into a pub. Rob was very gracious, as Rob and Kristen always are, to people that ask for a picture. I know its awesome that they do that, but I have already said my piece about autograph/picture seekers.

I have driven from Las Vegas to Central Texas and its not something I plan to repeat. It's not really that fun of a drive, but I was in a hurry then and I have spent my life making road trips. Rob, on the other hand, had not had that experience and I am sure it was a blast for those guys. Plus, I am sure he got to see his incredible girlfriend (the one and only Kristen Stewart) after the long trek. If i were in Rob's position there is little i would not endure to see her. I think he might feel that way.

I am not interested in debating the non believers and for the most part I don't think they read this. I am just going off common sense here. The last confirmed sighting of Rob was Thursday (or was it Wednesday) in Houston. People don't drive from LA to Houston for the heck of it. The Road trip was a means to an end. Robert needed to kill a few days until Kristen could break away from work.
Thus his gracious friends joined him on a road trip. If seeing Kristen was not the carrot, then they would not have turned South, IMO.

Also, since they were traveling by car, it was much easier for Rob to avoid the paparazzi as he neared Kristen. I am very pleased that there hasn't been any news ( as of this writing).

I can't look at pap pictures again without feeling very guilty about it. So even if a picture surfaces of them smiling and holding hands, i will not react and try my damnedest not to look at it. If I celebrate such pictures, then I have no right to complain the next time the paps are rude to the happy couple. This is a position I will hold myself too, but I am not going to preach at anyone else about it. We have to come to these conclusions on our own.

I said this on Friday (not here) but hearing nothing about Rob & Kristen since Friday is a good thing. To me, and many of you, we know they are enjoying each others company.

One more thing I want to mention briefly before signing off. It's football season. I am occupied for the most part Friday through Sunday. I have my nephew's HS school games and then I have interest in many college and pro games Saturday and Sunday. And I am diehard Dallas Cowboys fan. I spend time handicapping the games beforehand, and I am small time gambler on the weekends. No. I am not gambling addict. I bet small on many games. I have a weekly budget of how much I am willing to lose and I stop if/when that limit is reached. That being said, I have come out ahead the last three years. I mentioned this for one reason. I don't have as much time to follow R/K. So I need a favor.

No news is good news as I said earlier. If something happens (on Saturday or Sunday) that you think i would want to know about, would someone please DM me on Twitter or leave a comment on this blog. Either action will send me an email and I always know when I get a new message. I will be very grateful for this.

BTW: As I said earlier, I don't think many hateful people read this blog. But if such a person were to leave a comment here that i don't like, it WILL be DELETED before anyone has a chance to see it. It's only happened once so far. (So if you don't like what you read here, just go away, you are not welcome).

I wish all of you a great week.

Back to the games. Take care.

The funniest speech ever.

Since we know our favorite couple must be getting some serious privacy, might I offer you a laugh? I never ask people to look at this kind of thing. It's worth it.

This guy is simply announcing his candidacy for county treasurer. I have never laughed at at political speech if that is what it can be called. The best is around 4:20

I promise to blog about R/K soon.

Kristen in league with elite actors

Yesterday on http://kstewaddiction.blogspot.com I discussed Kristen's movies that I have seen. I briefly touched on a comparison between Sean Penn and Kristen. I want to expand on that.

People complain about Kristen's media interviews. Sometimes she comes off as ackward. When a press member ask "the question" which they know not to ask, these press members define Kristen as downright hostile.

Kristen is a saint to the media when compared to a young Sean Penn. Sean wouldn't give interviews, period. He went on David Letterman once, refused to engage with Letterman's tactics, and chain smoked the whole time (this was well past the point when it was OK to smoke on a talkshow --- and Penn seemed to be daring Letterman to confront him). The whole interview Letterman was walking on egg shells, not wanting to ignite Penn's well documented temper. Penn had a bad boy reputation. However, I think it was just as much about Penn being uncomfortable with the media and his immature way of dealing with it was by being hostile. He would not attend award shows. On at least one occasion, Penn was nominated for an Oscar and didn't even show. About 10 years ago, he really chilled out. With encouragement from guys like George Clooney and Kevin Spacey, Sean showed up to the Oscar Awards and took home the best actor award. Penn is still somewhat media shy when it comes to discussing his career. However he has become a heroic philanthropist and goes on CNN regularly to talk about the suffering still happening in Haiti and post Katrina New Orleans. One of the few bright spots from Katrina was hearing about Penn rescuing people himself in the days after Katrina. He flew down right after the storm, obtained a boat, didn't announce himself to the media, and was spotted making many trips, by himself, to rescue stranded people. That's a true Good Samaritan. Plus he donated millions. His efforts in Haiti were very similar. He was the bad boy turned hero.

Kristen, though uncomfortable with the media, soldiers through those interviews yet she is criticized way more than Penn ever was --- and only because certain topics are off the table. David Letterman treated her like dirt this past spring. If I ever see Letterman in person, he is going to have to deal with me for the way he bullied Kristen in that interview. He is not scared of a 20 year old girl as she can't kick his ass like Penn could have. He treated her like she is Paris Hilton when she is the polar opposite of that talentless, egotistical attention whore. Of course this interview happens not long after several of Dave's young former interns came forward regarding sexual harassment while under his employ --- all while he is a married man. No one talks about Letterman's misdeeds anymore. Every mistake Kristen makes is amplified and takes much longer to be forgiven.

I actually started this blog wanting to compare the personalities and talents that I find similar between Penn AND Kristen, but I ended up going off on a tangent.

Penn is very private, abundantly talented, AND passionate about his work. These are Kristen traits as well. Also, perhaps partially due to Penn's influence, Kristen was very generous with Haiti relief. She wrote a big check herself, plus gave three rich women a chance to hang out with her at the Sundance Film Festival if they made a certain high level contribution to Haiti relief. Not too many young movie stars would do that. Men were not invited. She is not stupid. She wouldn't torture Robert by having rich old men buying an afternoon of her company.

When Penn cast Kristen for into the Wild he was quoted and I have not been able to find those quotes (this time) so I am going to paraphrase. He said he was hesitant at first to cast her because she is too beautiful and he was afraid that would affect the authenticity of the story. But upon further consideration, he was trying to show the loving side of Chris McCandless, and Kristen's inner beauty was as powerful as her outer beauty. The sweetness and inner beauty that emanates from Kristen was just what the film needed.

This inner beauty about Kristen has been under attack since she became uber famous. Its so unfortunate. For those of us that pay attention to Kristen, we know that sweetness, that truly caring nature of hers, is there. She wears her heart on her sleeve, but unfortunately she was forced to protect herself to prevent her kindness from being exploited. Those very early Twilight interviews show that personality. It's too bad she must protect that side of herself now.

OK. This entry wavered a bit from original plan but I'll post as is.
