My Two Cents Worth on Kristin Stewart

As a person, Kristin Stewart seems like an intelligent,  sensible, down-to-earth young lady. I have read interviews with her and think that she has a much better grasp on things than many of today's young celebrities. She dresses modestly, doesn't see the need to party all the time, hasn't been in and out of rehab, and doesn't flash her privates while exiting limousines. I very much like and appreciate Kristin Stewart the person. The world would be a better place if more young people looked up to her than to the likes of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian.
Kristin Stewart as an actress is, I'm sorry to say, terrible. Her style is completely wooden. It isn't only her performance in Twilight that I have an issue with. I'm watching her in a 2004 made for TV movie called Speak, and I have to say, if she were a teacher, her voice would put me right to sleep. Her delivery is utter monotone. 
It may in part be the roles that she's been given of the depressed teenager who perceives herself as awkward. I have not seen her performance in The Runaways yet, but given her track record, I have to say I'm a bit reluctant to give it a look.
