Kristen Stewart reacts to people walking out of screenings of her new movie


Kristen Stewart is speaking out after critics pulled out of a press screening of her latest film at the Cannes Film Festival last week.

Stewart’s upcoming film “Crimes of the Future,” directed by David Cronenberg, follows a performance artist who undergoes surgery in front of an audience as part of his schtick.

Much like many of Cronenberg’s previous works such as “The Fly” and “Shvers”, his latest project contains graphic scenes that some critics simply couldn’t bear to watch, including a controversial scene from an autopsy of child.

Despite the backlash, Stewart told Insider she doesn’t care about the walkouts or the questionable nature of the film.

“Everyone likes to talk about how hard their movies are to watch and it’s fun to talk about people coming out of Cannes screenings,” the actress said.

Stewart explained why she resonated with the Canadian director’s films.

The ‘Twilight’ actress also pointed out that walkouts usually happen every year at Cannes.

Regardless of reviews who couldn’t stomach the visuals, the Cannes film still received a seven-minute standing ovation, according to CinemaBlend.

Stewart stars alongside Léa Seydoux (“Spectre”) and Viggo Mortensen (“Green Book”) in “Crimes of the Future,” which is set to hit theaters on June 3.
