Kristen isn’t an actress who rehearses a lot. She learns her text twenty-five minutes before the take and she knows it by heart. Her precision, her malicious intelligence and her fast comprehension impress me a lot. She thinks she’s never better than on the first take. And it is often the case.
—  Clouds of Sils Maria director Olivier Assayas on working with Kristen (x)
