Kristen Stewart's New Hairstyle: Love It or Hate It?

06/12/2009 at 10:54 AM ET


Kristen Stewart hit L.A. yesterday with a choppy black hairstyle that shouts, “I love rock ‘n’ roll.” And if you think that Kristen’s new look makes her a dead ringer for Joan Jett, there’s a reason: The Twilight star has just taken on a new gig playing the singer in biopic The Runaways, which is slated to hit theaters in 2010. The style is a far cry from the tousled auburn locks that she sports as Bella — what would Edward say about the new look? Tell us: How do you rate Kristen’s rock ‘n’ roll makeover?

Love it! Love Joan Jett and am looking forward to the biopic. Smarten up, people. Kristen is an actress and she could not have portrayed Joan with auburn hair.

It’s just HAIR people, get over it…what makes you all so high and mighty? AND it’s FOR A MOVIE ROLE for crying out loud. Who cares what you all think? She’s the actress and she’s the one making money, get over yourselves!

Hate the picture — wind is blowing in her face, hardly letting us see the actual cut.

But, I luffff that she’s changing her hair style for a part! Shows that she’s dedicated with what she does /and/ that she’s getting in character early onish.

I’m sure by what we know of her, Kristen isn’t the sort of person to automatically slip into the role of Joan Jett. The hair lets her feel like a rocker.

Besides, this gives Kristen a new way to bond with her Twilight cast members once Eclipse starts up…she’ll most likely have a wig. ;)

Although it is unflattering, she looks just like Joan Jett, and it shows she takes her acting seriously. It will grow back, and shes still beautiful

Well at least its not a mullet. She is dangerously close though!!

She’s playing Joan Jett people- of course she has to have this hair cut! And she looks hot! Go Kristen!

EPIC FAIL. she looks uglier than ever!

She’s a method actress & obviously wanted to transform herself to adapt to the part. She looks wonderful & I am sure it will look even better on screen in the biopic. MUCH better then a wig- how can you transform to play such an iconic individual without making sacrifices for the part. Stop judging her, this is for a role. She is a beautiful person regardless of hairstyle & a talented actress. I can’t even believe this is debatable.

I think it looks the part and does something extraordinary for her eyes!!! I can’t wait to see the “Runaways.” I thin it is so interesting how shy Stewart is until she is acting…then she IS the role dead-on

Kristen on

i don’t like it but I love her and the fact that she is really trying to get into her role as joan jett she is AWESOME I LOVE HER!
