A few days ago i watched “The Runways” with Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. At first, it was odd to see Kristen swearing and doing the rock girl thing considering her most well known role is bella in twilight, but over the course of the movie i became immersed in her performance. And Dakota also gave a fine performance IMO, and i think she is becoming an actress to look out for.
But online i feel sometimes actors/actress’s are mistaken as bad actors/actresses because of a poor role choice or two. I know opinion is subjective, and that what looks like oscar wining acting to me may seem flimsy and unbelievable to you, but i just think sometimes they get a lot of hate for taking a bad role or two instead of acting ability.
A good example is the whole cast of Twilight. I already mentioned mentioned Kristen and Dakota, but i think this also applies to the other stars. I mean, Kristens and Robert Pattinsons other movies haven’t had anything close to the commercial success of twilight.
I think Dakota is the only one to come out of that franchise with her acting ability not called into question, and i believe that is only because she already had achieved success(both commercially and critically) before doing Twilight.
Another group that i think could fall under this category are disney stars. The thing about disney is that while it has a large audience, it is has a very specific audience(young girls) and outside of that audience it doesn’t have much appeal. SO while it may breed commercial success, its not a good way to start if an actor/actress wants to appeal to multiple audiences.
If there are any other actor/actress’s that you feel have been trapped by a certain role, tell me in your comment
