Baby Bella? Am I referring to those delicious, low-cal, individually wax-wrapped cheese snacks? No, I’m referring to Kristen Stewart, whose character is knocked up in the latest installment of the Twilight saga.
I have to say I have nothing against Kristen Stewart. She has money flying out of her, but she’s part of the most successful film franchise ever, and she has one of the hottest guys on the planet. Why should I be bitter?
The problem is that it’s painful to watch her as an actor. Like I said, I don’t have a problem with Kristen Stewart; I thoroughly enjoyed her as Jodie Foster’s husband in Panic Room. I just don’t get it. I am not a huge fan of Twilight. I get and respect the phenomena; I just wasn’t on the tip. My friend dragged me to the last one, and it wasn’t as bad as I had expected. (Although, the hairstylist should be shot! Enough Aquanet already!) The action wasn’t bad and props to Dakota Fanning for being so cool. I just don’t get Kristen Stewart’s “style” of acting. She takes subtle angst to a new level that will drive you up the wall. Taking a half hour to raise an eyebrow isn’t acting in my book, but who the hell am I? It’ll be interesting to see her give birth in a subtly angst-ridden way. Or, perhaps not.
Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the ’70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael’s first published book, Homo-Hero’s Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the “Divas and Lassoes” panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his “underground” status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
