Rogue of the Week: Kristen Stewart

In Welcome to the Rileys, Kristen Stewart plays a stripper who finds a father figure in James Gandolfini. She is so good in the role that, according to CNN.com, while she was on set she was offered a stripping gig for real. She didn’t take it.

Her role as Mallory continues her run in smaller, independent films that aren’t exactly what you’d expect from Bella Swan. Are the ‘Twi-hards’ okay with seeing this side of her? Will they be mortified to watch her slither around in various stages of undress? They may not be, but that is why it is a brave choice as many of her other projects have been.

Often times name actors shy away from riskier roles. There are certainly a few out there that take chances; Ewan McGregor, Kate Winslet, Tom Hardy, Selma Blair and a handful of others come to mind. While their choices may not always work, it is much more interesting to see somebody take a chance. With Mallory, Stewart takes that and then some.

This is not to say that every fan of Twilight will spend their hard earned cash to see ‘Riley’, but it only helps her credibility for a lasting career.

The truth is, not everybody raves about the “brilliant acting” in the Twilight Saga. And no, I’m not talking about the massive amount of young girls who worship the films. You will not be seeing any of these films garner serious acting awards. Yet if Stewart keeps this double career going, she may very well find herself up for something more than the “Best Kiss” at the MTV Movie Awards.

Congratulations Kristen, you are the Rogue of the Week!
