Actress for hire!
"Twilight" has been good to Kristen Stewart. The 23-year-old star, who was the highest paid actress in 2012, has made so much money she no longer needs to work.
But that doesn't mean she's planning to retire. Stewart told "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart on Thursday night she would have been willing to work the craft services table on her new movie "On the Road" in order to be a part of it. Watch the video:
This is hardly the first time Stewart, who was infamously knocked down an industry notch or two when an affair with her married “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders was exposed, has professed her "desperate" desire to continue working in the movie industry now that the "Twilight Saga" films are completed.
"I'm sort of bored now,” she tells Marie Claire Australia in their January cover story. "I wanna work
on something and maybe it doesn’t have to be an acting job. I’ve been hanging out with my dogs and my family and, to be honest with you, I’m still catching up on sleep. I've worked for two years solid, literally since 'Eclipse.' But I’m itchy now. I wanna do something."
Stewart, who brought in $34.5 million this year, acknowledges it's not finances that is driving her job hunt. "I know I'm in an insane position that I would do my job for free and that’s something that a lot of people say, but I actually mean it."
Luckily, last week Stewart revealed she landed a plum role starring in "Focus," a romantic comedy, alongside Ben Affleck. But even that doesn’t seem to have satisfied her working appetite.
"We start shooting in April," she told the Huffington Post. "I would love to find some micro-project before then, because April is kind of a ways away."
