Kristen Stewart became the first American actress to win a Cesar at France’s most prominent film awards show Friday. Stewart won best supporting actress for her co-starring role in “Cloud of Sils Maria”, directed by Olivier Assayas and also starring Juliette Binoche and Chloe Grace Moretz.
“The reasons why people make films here in France are very different from the reasons why people make movies in Hollywood and I prefer it here a little bit,” Stewart said backstage, talking about the courage of French filmmakers. She also revealed she will star in another French film but declined to reveal any further details.
I saw this movie at a festival a few months ago, and it’s very good. It’s really Juliette Binoche’s movie, but it’s a good role for Kristen Stewart and it’s nice to see her receiving recognition that she’ll probably never get for a movie like this in the US.
