Put your pussy to the wood!

the fame


Words of wisdom Joan Jett gave KStew while portraying her in the Runaways.

The Vancouver Sun interviewed Kristen in Utah yesterday, here’s a taste:

What Jett told her the first time she strapped on an axe in costume:
“Put your pussy to the wood! Fuck your guitar!”

On the band and movie:
“People don’t realize The Runaways were the first girls playing music like that. And really, it could have been anybody, but it was them (and finding out why) made it an interesting movie. Both (of these women have) a dominant sexuality. They had to fight. People like girls to be sexy and they did then, too, but in a different way. They didn’t want to get fucked–they wanted to fuck them.”

On gender roles:
“Generally, those girls in tall boots and short skirts might have overcompensated, like, ‘I can do what the guys do.’ I don’t want to say that girls aren’t cut out for that, and it’s not like I have fully developed thoughts on this shit either, but like it’s weird – I feel – (because) we’re never the aggressor, that girls do what guys do now, and maybe it’s not healthy. You know what I mean?”

On Bella:
“I have a fan base that loves Bella, and I do too, but I’m not her. I don’t think people can expect me, for the rest of my entire career, to please an audience that once liked Twilight, you know what I mean. I just think that’s crazy. It’s really always an afterthought. I’ll decide to do a movie and then go, oh, Twilight fans are probably going to react to this or whatever, but it’s an afterthought. I don’t plan things out based on how I think other people are going to receive them. I do it for the experience.”

On the makeout scene with DFan:
“I do remember a few extras taking pictures, (and that) really, really pissed me off.”
