Dennis Hopper became the coolest dad to his six-year-old daughter when he interviewed Kristen Stewart in Interview Magazine. That’s more than what I can say for myself. My daughter is probably still standing around her school parking lot because I decided this part-time gig was more important than picking her up. Some may call me a bad parent, I call it having set priorities.
Kristen shared the usual things with Dennis like how she’s boring and annoying.
“I’d like to take more walks after work, instead of having to come back to my hotel room and not leave. So it can be boring. I’ve been working as an actress since I was very young, and I know a lot of people who are actors who don’t have to deal with having a persona . . . You know, if you look up the word persona, it isn’t even real. The whole meaning of the word is that it’s made up, and it’s like I didn’t even get to make up my own. It can be annoying. But I have a really strong feeling that this is going to go away, that this is the most intense it’s going to get—and could get—and that it’s fleeting. So in a few years, I will hopefully become more like the people I want to become like.”
Dennis responded with, “You know, I thought you were stupid, friend. But I underestimated you. You are a total freaking retard!” Just joking, that’s from Water World. But it fits.
