Kristen Stewart Makes ‘Most Inspiring Stars’ List Alongside People Who Are Actually Inspiring
E Online released its ‘Top 10 Most Inspiring Stars of the Year’ list this week, which includes music-swelling stories of protesters, women’s rights advocates, amputee runners and other real-life heroes.
Oh yeah, and also Kristen Stewart.
The dour-faced ‘Twilight‘ star somehow made the cut just for continuing to do her job despite the self-inflicted drama caused by her affair with her married ‘Snow White and the Huntsmen‘ director Rupert Sanders.
Stewart came in at No. 7 for apologizing to Robert Pattinson after publicly breaking his heart and for taking her “lumps,” with E lauding her for facing the media “who spent their summer scrutinizing and criticizing [her] every move.”
E also suggests we all use her courage as a “blueprint” for how to face adversity, in case you needed tips on that or anything.
Double-amputee Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius and the punk band Pussy Riot – you’ll recall some members were arrested and later sent to a prison camp for protesting the rule of Russian President Vladimir Putin – were somehow deemed less inspiring than an actress who can’t breathe with her mouth closed.
Other people on the list who were devalued by Stewart’s inclusion were Abraham Lincoln, who’s still going strong despite being dead for almost 150 years; transgendered director Lana Wachowski (formerly Larry Wachowski) of the ‘Matrix’ writing Wachowskis; and the heroes who gave up their own lives to save others during the Colorado movie theater shooting.
In short, we have a president who abolished slavery, citizens who threw themselves in front of bullets to save loved ones, and a girl who apologized for putting a married man’s penis in her mouth.
One of these things is not like the other.
