Kristen Stewart Disses Anna Wintour, and Pays for It
Stewart could have appeared in Vogue.

Kristen Stewart has a sly publicist. After last week’s rumors that Stewart had a falling-out with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, she turned up covering Elle UK. We have the flawless photo…and the reason Vogue dropped KStew.
Apparently Vogue was planning to run a massive Kristen Stewart feature for their June issue. It sounds, however, as though Stewart would not submit to Vogue EIC Anna Wintour’s demands for a very detailed, uber-personal interview. Vogue had even begun to shoot images of Kristen, but they wound up publishing only one photo, making Kristen Stewart appear as nothing more than a backseat actress only capable of predicating a back-of-book style page.
For shame. Vogue‘s alternative strategy garnered big criticism when they ran a boring cover feature on Gossip Girl Blake Lively, who, according to Lainey Gossip via Celebitchy, is known to do whatever Anna Wintour says. But when Blake Lively turned up as Vogue‘s bubble-gum surfer-girl cover girl, Kristen Stewart turned up in a Euro-sophisticate spread in Elle UK.
It’s all good because we’re one of the very few sites who have gotten hold of the revealing quotes from Kristen Stewart’s Elle UK interview — here are a couple: “I’m quite nervous about the third one, actually,” Kristen says about Eclipse. “It’s such a privilege to be able to play a role for so long. Also, it’s such a product now; it didn’t start out as a product.”
