TIFF'12 kicked off yesterday for 10 days of screening great films from all over the world. But the big celeb news of the day was the first public appearance of Kristen Stewart (22) since "the cheating scandal."
Stewart has been a virtual recluse since July after her scandal-clad split with Robert Pattinson. She emerged from hiding yesterday in a big way by hitting the red carpet at TIFF. By many accounts the appearance was a hit. She looked great, signed autographs from supportive fans and spoke with journalist (although only about the movie). Check her out on the red carpet at US Weekly.
She was here to promote her film On The Road which co-stars Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst. It's based on Jack Kerouac's classic work about the beat generation. But many will be keeping an eye on Stewart in this movie - just to see if she can move of from the Bella charater in the Twilight series.
If you're planning to take in some films during TIFF this weekend, there is plenty to see! Ben Affleck's Argo is a great choice - there's a lot of great buzz about this movie. Keira Knightley and Jude Law are here to screen Anna Karenina and Tom Hanks and Halle Berry will be making the trip down the red carpet for Cloud Atlas.
