Kristen Stewart Responds To Social Media Campaign For Her To Be The Next Joker
| Last updated
Kristen Stewart has responded to a social media campaign that has called for her to play the Joker opposite ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson as Batman.
As you can probably imagine, the chances of that happening are pretty low, but that hasn't stopped the 31-year-old from speaking out.
Speaking to Variety, she said: "I love the energy behind that. It's really been done so well.
"I feel like, maybe, we don't traipse over, but I love that gusto. Let's figure something else out.
"I'm totally down to play a freaky, scary person."
When asked whether it was a firm 'no', she added: "Not 'no,' but not the most stoked I've ever been. Let's do something new."
Taking to Twitter, one fan asked who they would cast as the Joker in the next instalment of Batman and someone responded: "The only actual answer here is that it's time for us to get Kristen Stewart's take on the Joker."
Another added: "Kristen Stewart as the Joker for Robert Pattinson is something I want now."
I would love it if Kristen Stewart was cast as the joker

I love #KristenStewart but can we please quit it with the talk of her possibly playing the #Joker up against #RobertPattinson's #TheBatman?
Yes we know they did #Twilight together, they also dated and had a messy breakup so please just stop.
It's incredibly cringeworthy. pic.twitter.com/PMMaSVV0Vr

Someone else wasn't keen on the possibility, commenting: "I love Kristen Stewart but can we please quit it with the talk of her possibly playing the Joker up against Robert Pattinson's Batman?
"Yes we know they did Twilight together, they also dated and had a messy breakup so please just stop. It's incredibly cringeworthy."
Kristen Stewart is currently promoting her upcoming film Spencer which sees her take on the role of the late Princess Diana.
Speaking about her struggles with the part, she told the BBC: "I had TMJ [temporomandibular joint - which meant that her jaw stayed shut] to the point where I was like, completely locked up.
"I was like, 'Huh, I guess I'm really nervous' - I was really tripping out until we started."
Directed by the Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larrain, the film shows Diana bracing herself to face the royal family over the festive period.
Speaking of the help she got from the director, Stewart explained how he told her to 'relax and trust the process', suggesting she would be best relying on her extensive preparation.
