Kristen Stewart Says Hollywood Fails At Showing Women As Sexual Beings


Kristen Stewart is deeply over Hollywood’s reticent depictions of female sexuality and taking matters into her own hands, so to speak.

In an interview with Mastermind magazine, Stewart mentioned a screenplay she’s writing that, she says, is refreshingly vulgar. According to People, which censored the words “cunt” and “motherfucker” in their post, Stewart told the mag:

“My favorite line in this movie I’m currently writing is, ‘I thought about Sienna Torres and her shoving her hand into my wide-open c— about as wide as a mouth saying m—-f—-,’ ” she recites. “That’s not something people would be comfortable hearing, up until right now, but I think it’s the perfect time. There’s nothing dirty about it, but I’m definitely going to be vulgar, and I’m definitely going to be completely unabashedly open about the fact that we’re entirely sexual beings.”

Stewart also talked about how Hollywood has done a poor job of depicting women’s sexual desires:

“Right now, I’m so aware of the fact that we’ve watched, cinematically, men and their way into their bodies and do physical things that feel fundamental to this male perspective. In every coming of age story we see about a young girl, even if it’s the truest, most sincere thing, what’s lacking is the physical honesty of actual female experience and the way we discover our bodies. It’s like we’re scared of using certain words.”

Like “cunt” and “motherfucker,” apparently! Right, People?
