"For now, Tilda, Kristen, Isabelle and Virginie quietly sip champagne and dance timidly. They don't know it yet... but, in two hours, they will be standing on the Trans's sofas loudly singing along a "I Will Always Love You" masterfully performed by a drag queen disguised as Whitney Houston. Unlikely and so funny."
ELLE.com: I actually just wrote a piece for ELLE.com about how people are afraid to love Kristen Stewart because of her public persona, but if you look at her work in Still Alice…
I wanted that role of the brother so bad...
Brilliant script. Everyone killed it. I mean, what a great movie. I read the script and I was like, 'I want this.' I even hit Kristen up and was like, 'Put in a good word!' But, regarding Kristen, you know, I'm proud of her for being herself. Times have changed now—there's a lot of invasion of privacy and a lot of ruined moments. What [the paparazzi] take, capture, and release is often taken as a reflection of who that person is.

• Vanity Fair: The French have really proven their good taste in American actresses this past year by fêting Moore for her performance in Maps to the Stars and also Kristen Stewart for her impressive work in last year’s Cannes debut film Clouds of Sils Maria. Stewart, who played Moore’s daughter in Still Alice, won the César—making her the first American actress ever to receive the honor. The unexpected win may have surprised many, but not Moore, who has known Stewart since she was 12 years old. And movie mother and daughter still keep in touch.
“The minute I won Cannes last year, I got a text from [Stewart] going, ‘Oh my god!’” Not long after, Moore got the chance to reciprocate the cell-phone sentiment. “And then I was in L.A. when she won the César and I texted her back.”
