Joan Jett: Thumbs Up For Runaways Movie
Joan Jett has said she’s impressed with the biopic of The Runaways.
The movie, which is simply called The Runaways, has just been premiered in America at the Sundance Festival.
Kirsten Stewart plays Jett, with Dakota Fanning in the role of vocalist Cherie Currie.
So, what does Jett make of Stewart?
“I think she’s a really real person. She’s authentic. She cared about it, it wasn’t just a gig,” Joanie told Cinema Blend.
“She cut off her hair, she really immersed herself in it. I don’t mean to put words in her mouth, but what I get is she feels she has to do it justice.
“She knows The Runaways have fans, she knows I have fans, and she was concerned about being authentic. I found her wonderful to be around. We got along great.
“It’s really scary – when you see us together physically, the energy is so similar. The way we move, the way our hands move and our hair, the way we talk, we start and don’t finish sentences. It’s really bizarre, but in a great way.
“When you see Kristen singing, that’s really her singing. Same thing for Dakota and Cherie. I think they did an incredible job. I was very proud.”
