CORRECTION: KRISTEN STEWART’S COMMENTS DIDN’T PRAISE HITLER
SUNDANCE – We would like to correct an interview with Kristen Stewart published in Studio Exec today which has since been taken down.
In the interview, Kristen Stewart, who is in Sundance to promote her new film with Kelly Reichardt Certain Women, made some comments which were erroneously transcribed and then published.
In the interview Ms. Stewart said:
I really enjoyed working with Kelly. I think she’s a very strong woman and in the film-making scene today we need more women like Kelly standing up and making vital and challenging cinema, not just because they’re women, but because they’re movies are original and rock.
This was unfortunately mis-transcribed and reported as saying:
I really enjoy watching old Nazi propaganda films. I love Hitler. He was the best. That little mustache? I mean, yeah I’d hit that. What we really need now is a new Hitler. I mean I could do it, but I’m busy.
And while responding to a question about beef jerky, her answer was correctly reported as ‘Yuk, I don’t like that at all’, the question was unfortunately mis-written as ‘So the Jews?’
