Kristen Stewart is stealing roles now?

As if it wasn’t enough that Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson with that married with children dude who directed Snow White and the Huntsman, now she’s apparently stealing roles from other women too! Jennifer Lawrence, whose acting skills actually extend beyond biting lips, wanted the lead role in Lie Down In Darkness bad enough to write the director asking for the role. But instead, the role is going to Kristen, even though it doesn’t really have anything to do with her cheating scandal, we should all be angry about this just because the web told us to be. From HuffPo

Kristen Stewart enraged some Twi-hards when she admitted to having an affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders (“You were stupid enough to get photographed doing it!” said one irate fan), and now she might have Hunger Games devotees sharpening their pitchforks as well. According to Vulture, Stewart has landed the lead role in Lie Down in Darkness, Scott Cooper’s adaptation of William Styron’s 1951 novel. The problem? Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence wanted the same part so much that she tried to write Cooper (Crazy Heart) on her own behalf.

“I am obsessed with that part,” Lawrence told W magazine. “I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play. I worry about them — if someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right; they’ll make the character a victim or they’ll make her a villain or they’ll just get it wrong somehow. I’m trying to write the director to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house.”

Granted, even though Jennifer is a far better actress (she was an Oscar nominee for Winter’s Bone) than Kristen and would probably have done a way better job, she never had the role to begin with, so it’s not like Kristen “stole” the role from her. That being said, at this point, it’s fair to assume that pretty much any other actress can pull off a better performance than Kristen’s monotone dribble method, so let’s see just how far her career goes after the whole Twilight saga comes to an end.
