Joan Jett Talks To 'She' Magazine
On her involvement with The Runaways movie:
I wanted to be around for the filming. You know, the reason I never cared about a movie about my life was that I didn’t want anyone to f--k it up. I would be so crazy if someone made a Runaways movie that I hated, you know?
On Kristen Stewart playing her in the film:
I was thrilled … I met up with Kristen and we got along really well … she really studied me — she got down my body language, my voice inflections, expressions. We’re actually very similar. We’re a lot alike, in our energy, when we talk about stuff, being all over the map.[Laughs]
She was so committed. I remember asking her, early on, if she was going to cut her hair for the film and she said, "Absolutely." I think that helped her to feel like me, rather than wearing a wig. It was good. She wanted me on the set every day. So that was cool.
