Washington: James Franco has praised Kristen Stewart’ for her acting skills and said that she deserves her success.
The ‘127 hours’ star spoke about the 22-year-old actress, as he analysed her latest movie ‘Snow White And The Huntsman.’
“Some might argue that Stewart - or any young upstart buoyed by the surge of a successful franchise, album, or Internet meme - is just as unjustly charmed,” a website has quoted Franco as saying in an article for a leading daily.
“Some could say she had a lucky break when she was cast in ‘Twilight’ and then rose to international stardom based less on her own skills than on the success of the project.”
“But, whereas Snow White would more than likely be inarticulate, diseased and frail after being confined in a tower for 10 years, Kristen Stewart landed ‘Twilight’ after years of working with some of the best directors in the business (David Fincher, Sean Penn). She actually does deserve the crown,”
The 34-year-old actor who recently joined the list of Huffington Post’s celebrity bloggers couldn’t stop gushing about the ‘Twilight’ star.
“To me, then, the images of Snow White as a leader of immense strength, charging on horseback across the beach at the head of an army, has less to do with her character and more to do with the actress who plays her,” he said.
“Stewart has braved more scrutiny of her private life than most presidents. She has taken big career risks by doing films like ‘Welcome to the Rileys’, ‘The Runaways’ and ‘On the Road’ (nudity, I hear).”
“She has worked her ass off. Whatever Snow White may be, Kristen is a warrior queen. Give her the crown,” he added.
