Kristen Stewart has been promoting her new supernatural drama “Personal Shopper,” which opened March 10, and on Thursday night, March 9, she sat down with Stephen Colbert to discuss the film on “The Late Show.” But she talked about more than that. She also addressed Donald Trump‘s infamous 11 tweets, in which he commented on her off-and-on relationship to Robert Pattinson in 2012, a few years before becoming the leader of the free world. Watch her “Late Show” segment above.
At the time, Trump tweeted, “Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog and will do it again — just watch. He can do much better!” Colbert asked Stewart, “How does it feel to be tweeted at more than the president has condemned anti-Semitism?”
The actress said, “I don’t know [why he attacked me],” but she literally brushed it off her shoulder. “I tried to [talk to him about it]. I did it publicly, and he didn’t publicly respond. I was kind of disappointed.” Of course, Stewart previously addressed those tweets during her monologue when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” on February 4. She said, “The president is not a huge fan of me, which is so okay, because Donald, if you didn’t like me then, you’re really probably not going to like me now because I’m hosting ‘SNL’ and I’m, like, so gay, dude.”
Stewart also talked to Colbert about her liberating new buzz cut, which is ostensibly for her upcoming film “Underwater.” “I got lucky,” she said. “I’ve been wanting to shave it all off for a while, and the director [William Eubank] suggested that I do that probably because he wants his main character to look cool. The female protagonist has to be bad-ass.”
