Because she's definitely interested.
In a new interview with Yahoo! Movies
, the often stoic
star surprisingly admits she not only loves watching movies from the superhero blockbuster genre, but she would also like to star in one.
After the massive success of 2008's Twilight, Stewart has noticeably stuck to smaller indie dramas such as last year's Camp X-Ray and Clouds of Sils Maria.
But that doesn’t mean she's shunning the big comic book action flicks. "I love watching those movies," Stewart admits. "I'm sure I could get on board with Captain America, you know what I mean?… It would just have to be the right thing."
"I would love another big movie to come along. It's definitely not something I'm avoiding," she clarifies. "I want to do big movies. You get to play with more stuff and there’s so much more at your disposal. You get to do it on a larger scale, you get to connect with more people. I am all about that. I just want to do it for the right reasons."
One of Stewart's acting idols, her Still Alice co-star Julianne Moore, has an impressive resume that includes both indie movies like Maps to the Stars and franchises such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay parts one and two. Moore is now considered the favorite to take home the Oscar for Best Actress for her role as a professor with Alzheimer's disease in Still Alice, in which Stewart plays her daughter Lydia.
"She's a genius," Stewart gushes. "I really hope that she’s acknowledged for that because it’s about time."
In the candid new interview, Stewart also shows she's well aware of the criticism that she basically plays herself in all her films.
"I would love to show people that I can do more than just be 'Kristen Stewart' in a different movie, in a different circumstance," she says bluntly.
The paparazzi favorite has been particularly introspective about her reputation lately, recently telling Salon
that people who people admire her "no f*cks given" attitude have actually got her all wrong.
"I'm like, actually, no one gives a f*ck like me," she stressed. "No one gives more of a f*ck than me. It's just ironic to me. I'm always like, really?"
ET was at the Still Alic
e screening in New York last week, where Stewart once again sang Moore's praises
