Jenny Lewis talks about Kristen & working with her on the 'Just One of the Guys' music video


ELLE.com: Aww. Kristen Stewart starred in your last video for "Just One of the Guys." How did that happen?!

I e-mailed her. Seriously. I'd met her a few years ago, and I knew she was a big Rilo Kiley fan. She was the second person I cast. The first was Anne Hathaway, who is one of my great friends. We worked together for a year on a movie called Song One, which she produced. Johnathan and I wrote the songs for that, and we became great friends with Annie through it…so Kristen is the one girl in the video who I knew the least, and I was so excited that she just came on set and joined in. And do you know she's hilarious? She's hilarious. I didn't have to do much directing with her, because she was, like, perfect.

Who came up with the track suit idea?

I did. I said, here are the rules: everyone barefoot. Track suits. Pant suits. No nail polish.
