Kristen Stewart Shoots Down Fans Who Want Her to Play Joker Opposite Robert Pattinson's Batman
Kristen Stewart said she wasn't opposed to playing the Joker but would rather "figure something else out"The actress, 31, appeared on Variety's Awards Circuit podcast on Wednesday, where she was asked whether she'd ever play the Joker after fans launched an internet campaign to cast her in the role opposite Robert Pattinson's Batman. The two stars dated from 2009 to 2012.
This is at least the second time a deal has fallen through in the case, which has also been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. The Stewarts face a maximum penalty of a year in jail, although such a lengthy term would be unlikely.
Neither prosecutors nor defense attorney Guy Fronstin immediately responded to calls and emails seeking comment.
The Stewarts got into a tussle at The Breakers Hotel with security guard Jessie Dixon on Dec. 31, 2019, not long before midnight, police have said.
They said the Stewarts were part of a group that tried to enter a private event in a children's area at the posh hotel, but were not allowed. The group, which included children, created a scene and would not leave, police said.
Dixon intervened and Sean Stewart, 41, got in his face, according to the police report. Dixon told officers he put the back of his right hand on the younger Stewart's chest and asked him to back up. Security video showed Sean Stewart then shoving Dixon and Rod Stewart, 76, punching him in the ribs.
Rod Stewart, a native of London, is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His greatest hits include “Maggie May,” “Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?” and “Tonight's the Night.” Queen Elizabeth II knighted him in 2016.
