Joan Jett Gives Kristen Stewart A ‘Hard Time’


June 30, 2009

Rocker Joan Jett apologized to Kristen Stewart after reportedly reducing her to tears during a heated confrontation on the set of upcoming biopic The Runaways.

The pair have struck up a friendship since Stewart signed on to play the I Love Rock N Roll hit-maker in a new biopic about her 1970s band.

However, the actress allegedly broke down crying after Jett gave her a ‘hard time’ during filming in a bid to improve her performance – prompting the rocker to apologize.

A source tells the New York Daily News, “Joan just wants Kristen to play an authentic version of herself, so she needled her a little bit too much. But she apologized when she realized how upset Kristen got.”

In April, the Twilight actress admitted she was feeling the pressure that comes with playing a real person onscreen: “It’s one of the most immense responsibilities to play a real person. Her story’s important. It’s an incredibly triumphant feminist story really.”
