K's bodyguard HGB wearing a blue beanie was standing behind her co-star T. J. on the Nola Swamp tour boat with the cast/crew of Underwater in the pic released recently. Why would he be there? K has assistants/ friends C.J. & S.M. to be there with her. Two words: family protection. He also acts as interface between K and paps. Rob's body guard was listed in the QOTD credits. What other actors have bodyguards on set with them? R & K protect what is theirs very well with well honed tactics.
Yes I saw that. Not only was HBG at this cast/crew outing (CJ, Suzie & Stella being part of the crew as K’s assistants) he was also @ Ks BDay party and outings.
Why? Sure, no doubt he and Kristen have a bond. But sadly we know Kristen needs him there not just as a friend but to serve his purpose as her bodyguard!
It’s been fascinating watching Kristen’s evolution on set.
With Twilight she had a combination of her brother and then John as guardian/PA…
When Kristen was younger it was mostly her mother.
Kristen has said that once she no longer required a guardian be with her she quite liked being on set cut off from family and friends. It helped her focus on her work.
But something started to change. Subtly at first but now we can no longer ignore it.
I feel the start of the change was when she filmed Clouds of Sils Maria. Suzie joined her and was credited in the film as Kristen’s assistant. We also saw a slew of friends visiting Kristen on set throughout their locations in Europe.
She had friends tag along when she was in NYC to film Anesthesia, and Lindsey was with her primarily while she filmed Still Alice. (Note to myself…check film credits)
She had Scott with her for Equals but that was a fairly long shoot on the other side of the world. Perhaps her friends were not available to stand in as hired hands.
Scott seems to have flown the coop and Kristen seems to be choosing her closest friends to accompany her on location. Primarily Suzie but often CJ will join or tag team and now we’ve added Stella to the mix.
Some will label these ppl as hangers on but they are close loyal friends that are no doubt paid when they serve as Kristen’s helpers on these projects.
The question is…why would Kristen need more than one person with her? We know she’s quite independent and she could easily hire any old PA to do whatever schlepping is required while she’s working. But on the last several movies Kristen’s filmed she’s had 2-3 assistance/friends with her?
Call me crazy (I know many of you do) but makes all the sense in the world that when you have precious cargo accompanying you while you are on location (2/3 children) you might need several hands to help out! Suzie along with being a great friend also has experience as a nanny. Though I don’t think Suzie is Kristen’s primary nanny no doubt she’d be trusted to oversee childcare logistics when Kristen and Rob are unavailable.
Having her family with her, it also makes sense that Kristen would expand that to include her larger circle of family/friends rather than hiring strangers that would take time to gain her trust when her and her family’s privacy and security is at stake.
Yes! No doubt RK have this down to a science and no doubt their fierce when it comes to protecting their family!
L'oral, ça s'est hyper bien passé. Le prof a dit qu'il m'embauchait, que j'étais tres intéressante, que c'était comme une discussion. Les questions étaient intéressantes, je crois que quand je réponds je passe pour une vraie humaniste bienveillante mais bon. En vrai, je dis ce que je pense alors c'est cool si ça plait.
That makes me think about those times I wanted to grab you and kiss you. But you didn’t know, so I would just pretend everything was cool. But really it was killing me. And I remember all those mornings before you even put on your makeup, when I would think to myself, “My God, she is beautiful.” And it hurt so much because I knew I could never tell you. But it was worth it just to be there looking at you.
