Kristen Stewart became the first American actress to ever win a ‘Cesar Award’ which is the French equivalent of the Oscars back in February and this week she finally shares that experience of validation.
Stewart is not one to speak about her feelings to the media, after winning this award she can’t help herself as she laments about feeling validated as an actress. Speaking to ‘USA Today’ about her career rise, the actress says, “It’s nice to have people be like, ‘Hey, good job!”
“I’ve always been really confident about my path. It’s hard for me to speak to the whole idea of fewer roles for women, even though it’s absolutely true, because I’m just like, kind of swimming around this Olympic-sized pool of indulgence, which is so unbelievably lucky. And so [the Cesar] was just kind of a nice pat on the back. Honestly, it was just really cool to get together with everyone and go, ‘F*ck yeaaah!”
“I’m going to be so real with you, I was in utter disbelief sitting there next to [Clouds of Sils Maria co-star Juliette Binoche] who told me, ‘It is crazy you were even considered to be nominated! No way, no way! They’ll never give it to you!’ I was just sitting there, we were just shooting the [sh*t], hanging out, like, ‘Oh, is this the category?’ And then all of a sudden the row cleared out. It was awesome!”
